do you think it is safe to date someone online. i have never met him but we have been talking through AIM for a month and we talked on the phone 1 time for 2 hours? he wants to date but i do not know if its a good idea, since we never met. what are your thoughts?

It's pretty much a toss up there are pros and cons about dating someone online like the distance, ages, trust, and most importantly safety. If you do decide to date him or meet him make it in a public place for a couple of dates and then make your decision maybe even make double dates with friends so that you have even more opinions on his behavior and sincerity. You have to be careful when dating someone online try to know their family background and criminal history. Many predators use online to meet their victims and you don't want to become anyone's victim. I would say take more time to get to know him and ask about his family and where he went to school and college this way you get a feel for his character also check the Sex Offender sites there are free ones on there just to be extra careful. If he lives close to you and you have his address you could also check out what type of life he leads on a regular basis. Maybe even a background check if you can afford it.
