    How do people feel about telling their friends they're linking someone from say, a chatroom or *god forbid*, TSR?

    i would personally feel slightly awkward about it, and possibly say I met them at a pub or something instead
    meeting/getting to know people over the internet indicates that you spend waaay too much time in front of your PC, especially if you do it on the regular

    I'd think you were incompetent of socialising in the "real world."

    One of the people i work with who was on placement with me met his current girlfreind online and freely admits it. Shes nice, they get on wel, why not?

    I personally havent gone out with anyone ive met online, but i know a number of people who i would now consider to be good friends, that ive met either directly or otherwise, via forums. Its just another way of organising meeting up with people. Is that any more weird than walking up to a randomer in a pub/club/event and starting talking to them?

    I've admitted it to my 'real-world' friends about some of my online friends that I've become very good friends with. They find it interesting and make silly jokes about it, but there's nothing wrong with it.

    I met my partner online. Shortly after meeting and chatting online, we met up IRL. We got on great, and over a year and a half down the line we're still together in a relationship many people would kill for (not my words :p: )

    There's nothing shameful about finding someone online. Presumably at some point you do actually meet them in person, so what's weird about it?
