Should You Meet Your Online Love?

If you aren't sure you are ready to meet your online love...then you aren't ready.

Let's try and decide if you should meet your online love...

First, the two of you have met online...a mutual attraction was apparent and was acted upon. It was unbelievable how close the two of you became in a short period of time. We all know the term "soul mate" is overused...but you're going to use it anyway! The two of you have flirted a long time with the idea of meeting. However, you just aren't sure you should meet your new, online love. But...

There is no where to go from here! You have emailed, I.M.'d, and text'd, talked for endless amounts of time on the phone. You have even sent lots and lots of "snail" mail.

Once you have exhausted all forms of communications, I feel it is time to meet. But, make sure you know all you need to know before you schedule a "face-to-face" meeting. When I say "everything" I mean "EVERYTHING"! The first "face-to-face" is not the time for "true confessions".

Before you schedule to meet your online love, ask and answer the following question: "Is there anything you haven't told me, that I need to know?" If the answers are yes, lay everything on the table and talk through it. If either of you are unable to deal with the new "revelations", do not meet.

If the two of you are able to continue to work forward in the relationship, then by all means I feel you should meet! If you don't meet, the relationship is stalled and there is no where to go! You can't date in cyberspace forever...

Good luck...be safe and have fun!
