  • No. I do not think you can trust someone you meet online Trust is something earned over time as you get to know someone better. People online can easily fabricate an identity, pics and different persona (in extreme cases). Look, how the media has done uncover investigations of sexual predators posing as love interests for minors to lure them for sexual escapades etc. It's a shame to think this deeply about it but the fact is there are some very ill people in the world. You have to be more sage and protect yourself. If I meet anyone online, once I learn his/her name, I google it to see if he/she has a criminal record, is married, has an alternate identity etc.

  • Look at the lies people tell here on GaGuys, and this isn't even a dating list..

    People will misrepresent themselves in every way, not to mention a lot of people are just jokesters.

    Plenty of really disturbed people are trying to meet you this way.

    Yes, I've heard the stories of how wonderful it can be, and for some people, maybe worth the risk.

    But as a general rule, outside of special circumstances, I'd stay away from it.

  • you shouldn't be scared to date someone from the net but at the same time you should be careful and view each profile with a certain degree of skeptism . and try and verifty that what they posted or said is true . before jumping into anything

  • u know I used to trust people. I met a few really cool people from online then met them in real life. but then along came this one person who betrayed me tricked me and was like my best friend for 5 months I talked to them and told them everything. come to find out they weren't who they said they were, and had been lying to me and everyone else as well. so now I have rules to know that someone is who they say they are. and if they don't abide by those rules then I won't go any further with them
