How did you meet your boyfriend or ex-boyfriend? Did you meet him on the Internet? Do you feel safe to meet or date someone you know throught Internet chatting?

no i dont think it is safe ...because all the persons are not same everyone has different thinking ....so the safety depends upon the person to whom u meets ....... but it depends on u so u have to decide about that person....but i think internet friendship is better that love on internet ......thats my opinion and it is not compulsory that u should agree with me coz its ur life and u have to take all decisions....... happy mylotting

i had a bf through internet^^ i feel safe yes as long as you see the person face and as long as you speak with the person and not just type. i talked with him and saw his face and we also talked on phone.with the face and the voice you can see if the person is someone you can trust, if was honest about the age and all that^^ this way is safe.i didnt meet him in person bcs we lived in different countries and we broke up before we meet near. but if you date someone that you cant see his face or speak with him thats not safe. my sister for example she just saw her bf pics never even saw his face neither spoke with him on phone just sent sms and talked in msn and still she met him but she didnt go to meet him alone. my mum, my stepfather and my older sister went with her to meet him. they saw him and she talked with him and now they are together. he is a very sweet guy and im happy for my sissy^^

I met my boyfriend personally because of what you called a group eyeball where you can actually meet other people you have known from the forum or internet. By the time we met each other I don't have any idea that he is a member of that forum and he is not that active as I am. He was with his friends that are originally active on the forum so therefore he has no intentions for being a member of a forum on his own he just relied on his friends. When we met each other of course we are not that in love or something like you will say that we really like or admire each other. But then there are more get together have been made before we finally became friends to the extent that we are already developing. About your question my answer is IT DEPENDS! It depends on the person you have chosen to be with of course you have been chatted with. It also depends on how you converse to each other. There are certain things that you must be really alert of that is really hard to explain or even elaborate. But most of the time as what others here says that IT IS NOT REALLY SAFE in case to case basis. Obviously because there are people who has different intentions of dating someone through internet chatting especially the dirty old man.

I have met my boyfriend while we were both walking on the street and we were friends before that too but we were separated when I had to go live another place, I believe love on the Internet has to be very cautious as we might also find people very unpleasant too, so it is not safe to always trust a new friend on the Internet.

no, not at all. internet is not the right venue to find love, and more so true love. i think those who will want to find some quick and easy and short time fun internet would be the best place to search but then, this can't be a real relationhip if i may say.

Nope, it is not at all safe. It is usually seen that the desperate and sick people look for love online. I met my boyfriend in a class of my university. He was in masters and I was still an undergraduate. However, after we exchanged aim screen names we did chat online to get to know each other a bit. But then again, we knew who we were. One of my friends found a boyfriend online. He lived in UK and she was in dubai. He even came to see her, but after a while things did not work out anymore between them. She thought he was only using her. Oh same thing happened with my another friend. She was approached by a guy online. She met him. However, later she found out he was using her also. She is still chasing him though.

I don't think its safe because you cannot tell what people really think if you can't have any social activity with that person, it is easy to lie on internet make people believe that they are good, If you k now there are lots of incident of killing and rape because of meeting with people with their so called friend from online. but there is rare event where one of the show here in our country search for married couple who only meet on internet then get married with some proofs for legitimacy I really can't believe that there is some who find love online but on all the searches they made in the whole country only 4 or 5 couples are found so that is really a Small percentage for a country with 90million population. so I think it is better to look for love with people you know or encounter in your personal life not on internet. And also don't look for love, because love will look for you. if you want true love and forever relation then wait for it and ask for some signs.
