I haven't met this guy in person.

  • Have you actually met him face to face or just online?

    • You should call him and if it doesn't seem right then I would ditch the guy. As for the pic thing, he probably just wants to know what you look like, nothing wrong with that.

What Girls Said 1

  • Ask him to send a pic first, if he's cute send him one. But be very very careful, a lot of these guys are just looking to hook up. What site did you meet him on. Just stick to on line chat or land line chatting for awhile. If you do plan on meeting him in person. Tell a friend his full name, where and when you are meeting and how long you will be, a coffee date

    should be about an hour and make sure you call your friend when your done. You can't be to careful these days. I know your anonymous but it shows you are under 18, I hate to sound like your mother but I wouldn't even risk meeting him in person. The thing about being on line is anybody can be anybody. A 50 year old pervert can pertend to be a nice charming 18 year old, please don't be the next girl we read about in the newspaper.
