My neighbor started dating this guy online (for 3 weeks), now she is talk about she is in love with him and she going to Texas to move in with him. I have been trying to talk her out of it but she has already reserved a rental car to drive to Texas. I mean what if this guy is some type of rapist or killer.

I would not move in with anyone after having met him for 3 weeks, even if it were offline.

I agree 3 weeks is not enough time to know someone. I tried telling her that, but she said the heart wants what it wants.

@themrs In my opinion, she has no idea what love is. Infatuation is the most I can say for her feelings

I dated a few people online. I have to say they were awesome guys that I will always care for. The one I felt the most for I could not be with. he was way to young and when he started getting emotionally attached I broke it off. he was so sexy and I love that body. But I could not meet his family and he wanted so bad to bring me home to his mom. It was all my doing not his. He was 25 so legally a man.

How long did you date him online? Did you ever meet him in person? and if so how long was it before yall meet each other in person? I know i'm asking a lot of questions, but i guess i'm just worried about her well being.

@themrs Just make sure she sends you that plate since she is leaving the state. Just in case. Oh I met a wonderful man online that came to pick me up. We were never looking to date though. Just friendship. he came over for a few hours then we went back to his place for the weekend. he fell for me but he was never my type. he was here to visit me right before the winter. he was dating a woman in my building. We are good friends still. he called me one ay when I was across the street he was right there in the parking lot. It was nice.

I don't see anything wrong with dating someone online, or who you have met online. There's millions of people that it could very well be the one for you isn't in the same state or anything. I met my bf online and we've been together almost 3.5 years. Love can happen fast so she could be in love with him. I would be worried about her moving so fast, that's the only part that seems weird to me. It's good they skype but I think she should go down there, meet him see how it is with them in person then talk about if they still wanna move instead of just packing up and moving so fast to someone she hasn't seen in day to day life like when he gets mad things like that.

I met my husband on line 16 years ago. But the first time we met for coffee is the first time we met and started getting to know each other. I took a cab to the coffee shop so he had no way to find me if I didn't want to see him again. I would not move in with someone I hadn't met.

@paigea 16 years congratulations .... I tried to tell her met him in person and see if you like him first, but she does not want to do that she is leaving Saturday to move in with him. I can say i am feeling better about this hearing all of these success stories about people meeting online.

@paigea At least you sounded mature about meeting him and took precautions.

My husband and I met online but we lived in the same city. Three weeks seems way too short to decide to move in with someone in another state. She is lucky to have someone like you looking out for her. Perhaps you two could set up some kind of check in system?

@AranciataRoss It is nice to know now that so many people meet other people online and it is nice to see that you married someone you meet online. It is putting my mind at rest. She is leaving Saturday afternoon, so I asked her to keep in touch with me and she said she would.

I met my husband online 12 years ago. We talked online and on the phone for a month before he moved to be with me. Everyone said the same kind of things to me but I knew he was my soul mate. He came to be with me and we lived together from the start. My husband and I never even saw a picture of each other before hand. Thank God I didn't listen to other people. I would not have the love of my life or 4 beautiful children.

@LovingMyBabies 12 years congratulations Thank you so much for sharing your story ... You are so right i'm glad you didn't listen to other people. I know I need to mind my own business, but it is just that protective "mom" side that just worries about her moving to fast.

I would not date somebody that I met at an online dating site because it is to risky.They could be a rapist or killer.To many people lie about who they are.

@workathomefan I am more old school and dating online is not for me, but after hearing all the beautiful success stories about online dating I feel a little better about it.

How old is your neighbor? Does she lead such a bad life to jump into something like that? Doesn't she read or watch the news? I think she needs some help as she can be heading for a big disaster.

@ramapo17 She is 22 and she was living with her mother so she really did not have much to pack when she left last Saturday. :(
