this isnt really a problem but a worry i meet someone on the internet and i have spoke to him on the phone loads of times and we still speak on the internet but now i want to meet him and he wants to meet me to. but you hear of all these people who pretend to be someone else im not saying he is but i dont know what to do should i meet him or not .if i did meet him i would be taking my mate but cus this lad lives far away he would have to stay the night down here with me. althought it would be safe im still scared .....what would u do ?
i mean i know every one on the internet isnt bad because i use it and im not but u still never know what to expect when u meet someone you have never seen .......... a mad pervert or a nice young lad.
help what should i do?

There are guidelines to follow:
1. Make sure people now where you are going and what time you will be back
2. Make sure you meet in a public place and take someone with you
3. If you don't feel comortable when you meet make you excuses and leave
4. Don't let him stay with you he may get the wrong impression - he could stay at a guesthouse

Most important - BE SAFE, BE CAREFUL

If he suggests going somewhere quiet don't make sure you are always around people, and take time to suss him out.

Hope all goes well and be careful

in the year 2000 i went to stay witha girl in ohio, now taht is a long distance relationship
i went to stay with her an her family
i talked over the interenet loads
never met them b 4 in my life
i went over there on my my own
ppl may say its different for boys an girls
i loved the idea of goin to meet some one from the internet that far away
i got a rush from goin
adreniline kiked in an the ideas popin in my head, i was lovin them scary ideas
i knew id be safe, i always did but u always cant help but wonder what could happen
every thin went good tho
id say go for it an dont worry about it use u gut instinct

I think kitten has basically summed it all up.
I've met a number of guys through the internet who have all been fine. However, you must always be careful and cautious hun.
