    I wouldn't advise it after only knowing them 2 days. I don't think you should meet them so soon, they could be anyone. BUT if you insist on going DON'T go on your own, take a friend. Don't even go on your own even if you've told someone. Make sure you take someone and meet them in a busy place, such as a shopping centre. But yeah, like I said, I'd strongly suggest you don't meet them just yet. Oh and don't give them you're address either!

    Why not? but be very careful to tell your parents/mates where you're going to meet, make sure its a crowded place with plenty of people around, etc. Just in case. If she's genuine, she won't take offence at you being sensible, if not, just cut it off and say you won't meet in that case.

    Might as well go for it - make sure you arrange to meet in a public place though, like say in the middle of a big shop, or something. Remember, 99.999% of people on the internet AREN'T paedophile rapists.

    I echo every word gemchicken says. If they don't like the idea of you having a chaperone - do NOT go.

    As much as it pains me to say this :ditto:
    Its a really bad idea going alone, take someone with you!

    definitely take an adult with you preferably several...if your contact is a genuine person they won't mind and will respect you for your sensible attitude.

    Get to know them better first, and introduce one of your friends to them over the net. Then you can easily go 'do you mind if my mate comes with me?'

    If you do meet up, make sure you're in a crowded place - if this person isn't who they claim to be, you can easily get away.

    Major rule: If the other person objects to you bringing a friend or meeting somewhere busy, DON'T GO THROUGH WITH IT!!

    LMAO!

    But in all seriousness, i wouldn't recommend meeting anyone from the net who you've only spoken to for two days! If you really want then make sure you take an adult and some mase.

    i actually met a person off faceparty but it was coz i was going out that nite wiv friends and so were they. Met them..and they were well fit we just decided to be mates coz of uni and stuff but i talk to him every day and we're hanging out when he comes bak home. I would say yes..but invite friends. i also met someone else off the internet without friends before..and that went pretty well too I spoke to them for ages on net and fone, wrote to them and stuff so trusted they were who they said they were

    its not always stereotypical when meeting someone online! they're not always bad people...i mean we're all conversing online, it doesnt mean we're all bad people. so, i feel you should!

    I've met loads of people online but I'm still careful. I make sure people know where I am, and make sure I meet in a public space. Luckily I'm hardly the sort of guy that someone would want to ****.

    ive met several people from online, ive always gone to a crowded place and even though im an adult ive told my family where im going and who im meeting. Ive not had a bad experience with meeting people and niether has anyone i know.

    But make sure you go somewhere crowded, take someone as a second opinion and make sure people know where your going and who your going with.

    If you guys actually read the original post i'm pretty sure he meant that said person asked 2 days ago if they would meet up - not that they've only been talking for 2 days

    I don't think the fact that he's 15 bears a lot of relevance. To me, 15 is a responsible age, so as long as he follows all the same precautions as anyone else, I don't see why not.
