    I met my last bf online.. we spoke on msn for about 4 to 5 months before we finally met.. and when we did he was shorter than what he had told me... but he was really lovely and we went out for 2 years.

    Goodness, yes.
    Met stacks of people that I first met on a forum. I'm a member of serveral classic car and hotrod forums and have met some of my closest friends through those forums at various events because we share a common interest.
    Have also met a couple of people from TSR thinking about it...

    I find people are either EXACTLY as they seem online or their real life persona is wildly different from what you get accross the web. I'd like to think I was one of those people who are exactly the same on forums as they are in person.

    The tabloids would have you think that everyone on the internet is a nutter, but this is far far more rare in reality than is portrayed.

    Talking on the phone helps!

    Also they can be amazing... about 3 years... in response to your question.

    Then after I went to uni... you dont know really people that well anyway ... through the internet you get to know people better

    yep... I honestly don't remember how long I talked to them though.. maybe a couple of months? *shrug*

    I don't know why people make such a big deal about meeting other people online... well, I do, actually.... but if you're careful you'll be fine.

    I met someone who i had talked on msn with for 2 weeks! (We had texted aswell)
    Everyone told me not to but i met up with him in a public place.
    He was as i expected although more shy.
    I was with him for 21/2 years...broke up about 2 weeks ago
    So yea although i took a risk was worth it...

    lol

    To be honest, there's no more nutters on the internet as you are likely to find on the average street. Most people have a computer these days in this country so by and large you get a similar spread of personalities.
