as in meeting someone you might want to be in a relationship with?
embarrassed or not worried?
do you prefer it that way or is it something you really want to avoid?
there are pros and cons to it, I think starting something online first could work in some situations, as long as the 2 aren't too far apart.
the pro's I see:
getting to know the person better before even meeting.
being more honest with each other due to not having to look them in the eye when you tell them how you really feel.
having more time to reply the proper way and avoid misunderstandings.
the person might be lying the whole time.
you might never meet.
getting made fun of by some people.
not getting to hold them.

You know, I've never understood why people say meeting people online is silly or whatever because they can be lying and all that. I think that's completely illogical. It suggests that if you meet someone in the flesh they.. what? HAVE to tell the truth? Never lie? People can lie and become who ever they want to be, both on the internet and in person. The only thing about the internet is appearance - but if you Skype or video chat, that's cured. I think that the perk about meeting someone online is that if you're talking heaps and whatnot - you get the opportunity to know them. You don't have to worry so much about them only wanting sex or whatever, because it's less likely than in person. Anyway, moving on.
I don't think I'd do internet dating or anything like that. Really, it's just because I never actively seek a partner because it isn't a priority for me. That being said, I've actually met someone on here who I absolutely adore. Ironically, before I met him I had organised to do a student exchange to his area. Then we started talking heaps, and I don't think I'd have allowed myself to get attached had I not known that I was eventually going there.2
