Meeting people online to irl

(Apoligizing up front if this is in the wrong section)


 


I've been talking to people i met on the site, usually people living far across the globe.


Something that always comes up in a conversation if if there would be eventually some meeting going on.


Now my question is, how do you people know if someone is safe you meet online.


I know how to like recheck for a catfish, such as skype etc etc.


But i'm really obnoxious about these things, i'm pretty scared that even though this person is NOT a catfish, it doesn't mean it's safe.


I know probably not everyone can relate to this, but i would like to know your opinion either way!


 


Thank you~

here would be some things to consider:
1)What can you verify them to they have a career, are they educated, etc.  These things don't prove their safe but worth considering.

2)Meet their friends make sure lots of people they know know you as well and possibly make it public that the two of you will be meeting on such and such a date at such and such a place.

I've done this a lot. I hope I can help.

 

Meet in a public place. Even an airport is fine.

 

Do not accept a ride from them, or have them be in control of the accomodations. Stay in a neutral place like a hotel, and use local transportation in case things go badly.

 

Let your friends and family know. Make sure they call you once a day throughout the entire trip! Even if it's international, give them a pre-paid card. The peace of mind is worth it.

One thing. I've learned this in my life. In your heart, if you have the teeny weeniest bad feeling about it or a someone go with your instinct. Trust yourself because you always know best. Xx

You can go so far as to even take someone with you when you meet someone.  The person you are meeting doesn't have to know this.  If you go to a restaurant or coffee shop your friend can sit somewhere separate just to keep an eye out in case things go bad.

You can never be to careful when meeting people from online. I'm super paranoid about it. Daddy and I knew each other for over 2 years before we met in person. Exchanged pictures. Personal information for verification. Spoke on the phone. Met in a public place in different cars. Trust your gut if it says something is wrong.

 

I agree with all of the advice given already. Good luck and be safe!
