meeting someone online is scarier than if you met them organically. he could be a serial killer for all you know. and because everyone gives lots of info about someone on their profiles, it's easier to spot red flags and move on. if you meet in real life, you get to know them more gradually, so if you spot those red flags, you still move on, but it's a longer process.1

In real life you get a much better sense of the person compared to written text. Online, you have to hope the guy is who he is. Granted, people lie in real life, it's easier to spot and online it is easier to hide the fact that the guy may be married and such.
Overall though, most girls just have that "He will be a serial killer" mentality due to the inbox of "DTF" messages they get and angry messages they get for simply not replying to somebody. It is overwhelming for them. Throw in the publicized "online killer stories" and they're basically stuck between wanting to date and being "too scared" to.2
