I have met two people from online. I dated one for a little bit but it ended and I am still good friends with him. The other one I am dating now and we are also good friends. When first meeting I wasnt sure what to expect but it went real good. It was only awkward for the first few minutes. That was probably cause I had been talking to them for awhile on the net and the phone before I met them in person.

I haven't ever met anyone that I met originally online, but I amn't against it. Alot of my friends have done it. One of my friends got into a pretty long relationship after meeting someone from the net. He'd always found it hard to meet people before so I guess it was good for him.

I've never done it but I know a few people who have. Two people who are actually now living with the people they met online. I think they met them through one of those online dating sites. The third person I know their relationship didn't work out - he was a total weirdo!

I've met a lot of good friends through the internet. Some from them reading my blog, some through discussion groups, and some through business programs I'm with. I have friends now all across the USA, Europe, England, and Australia that I regularly talk to. I may never meet them in person, but just knowing them has enriched my life! Online romances?? My niece met a fellow in a chat room about 5 years, or so, ago. They are still deliriously in love and have lived together for at least 4 years now. I know lots of gals, and guys, who have met the love of their life through online dating sites, and have long term relationships because of them. I've met quite a few myself through an online dating site. Luckilly, they were just as nice as they were online. I do think it's important though to really talk with them and get to know them and then meet them at a public place first...there are a LOT of crazies out there! Good luck!

I've met a few before, but none really stayed as friends for long.. think the "suspense" element is gone when you meet up and after a while, you just don't know what to say to each other anymore.. But i have had friends who met their husbands online and is still living happily together... guess it really takes God to put two people together in such a divine manner and only He will be able to keep the relationship alive =)

I have met quite a few people from the internet. I did date a few. It is better than meeting them at a bar. I made some friends also. I suggest that if anyone is going to meet someone off of the internet, do it in a public place. People do lie and the stinky side to the internet is that it is so much easier for them to be anyone they want to be. If you have a cam and you have swapped personal info with eachother (as in phone number)it is so much better.

No i never had a internet friend.. Even if someone starts mailing it doesnt stay as we are not able to meet... Most of the frendship we get through internet are not satisfactory when we meet them personally...

I have never met anyone online. But my colleague has. I cant say anything bad about it. Cos they 've been dating for 2 months , and it seems everything is working for them. they ve got big plans for the future... As about me I dont think its my cup of tea. I feel awkward looking for someone online. So it depends ... May be if one belive he will meet a good person online then he finally will do.
