Meeting People Online

Have you ever used the internet to meet new people? I have had good and bad experiences meeting people and I've found that some of my best relationships began on forums and similar websites!

I do use the net to meet new people and make new friends. Of course I have one rule and that is to never date anyone that I meet online. The only time I break that rule is if I see the person regularly in person, only after becoming real life friends for a good long while would I consider it.

I wish I wasn't so shy and self conscience! I either don't know what to say OR I say too much and look like, at least feel like a fool....so I pretty much stay to myself. I think it would be fun and interesting to meet new people/friends online.

I feel the same way a lot of the time. I feel like I talk too much about things that the other person couldn't possibly care about. At the same time I have made some good connections doing that.

so true.


if your on a forum, usually that forum is on a specific topic so meeting someone through that forum and becoming good friends with them is very likely, since you guys already have something in common.

and nearly all of us are online, the social networking thing has really exploded so meeting people online is within the norm.
