I am in my midthirties. By now, I have had my share of long term and short term "relationships". A few of these I have met online. While i have never met a longterm person this way, some of my pals have. What i have done is met a few weirdos, a few hotties who had really downplayed themselves... and a couple of really good friends. I have never had anyone meet me and think i didnt look like my pic, or that i had lied about my age, or weight.... But, i understand that this is a problem Many people will meet the person for coffee and cant find that person... they find someone much older, or a different size or shape altogether. that only happened to me once. A guy said he was 36, and he was 52 i asked him why in the world he would try to pass himself off as 16 years younger, knowing that he was going to have to face that person. I explained that although i am nice, some people might be quite angry. Judging from my friends tales, these situations are not that rare... What is your experience with meeting people in person that you met online?
