Be Yourself

This is one of the tips for meeting your online date in person that I can't stress enough! You've got to be yourself. Completely. Girls, you don't ever want to pretend to be someone else and then, all of a sudden, when you meet the person you are dating, you are someone completely different. That's not cool and it's not honest.


Dress Nice

Of course, you always want to make sure that when you're going to meet the person that you've been talking to forever, you want to look nice! Dress up, drag out that LBD, make sure that your hair is done up just right. You never want to meet your online date without looking hot!


Meet in a Public Place

Remember, even though you've had conversation after conversation with this person, you've still never met them and it's really easy for someone to pretend to be someone else when they are on the computer. So – make sure that you are meeting in a public place and even bring someone with you. They don't have to stay the whole time, but you want to be safe.


Talk the Day before Meeting

Never go without talking to the person that you are meeting the day before meeting. It could cause some tension and weirdness when you do finally meet. So girls, before you meet up with the guy that you've been dating online, make sure that you talk to him the day before you meet him.


Don't do Dinner

Just because you two get along online, doesn't always mean that you are going to get along right away when you meet, especially if he hasn't been honest, so make sure that you don't do dinner girls. Just meet for drinks at first and then it can progress into dinner if you two get along!



When you meet your date online, you've got to flirt! You've probably flirted online, spilled all of your secrets and gave up all of your confessions, but in person, it's so different. So show that sexy side, show the body language that you couldn't show on the phone!


Don't Act Differently

One thing that you shouldn't ever do whenever you are meeting your online date for the first time is act differently than you do online. You still want to be the same person that you are on the phone or over text messages, that way they can still recognize you and your personality.


Come Clean

Okay, so let's say that you have lied to your online boyfriend or girlfriend, what happens now? Well, before you meet them, you've got to come clean. You can't go through with meeting them if you have lied to them, it'll never work and it's not a great start to a relationship.

So girls, have you ever met someone online? Have you had a good experience? Sound off in the comments! I'd love to hear some feedback and some stories!!

Hey! I've been talking with a cute french guy for about 2 months. He have been working in my city, and now he is back home, but he says he will be back! He wants to move here because of work. Im really excited about meeting him, because during these 2 months i've been very busy as him :/. I dont know if maybe im creating a whole fairy tale about us, but we talk daily and have a lot in common :) what should i do? I dont want to get dissapointed later if this doesnt work :(

Great tips... I've been talking to a guy I met online for roughly 8 months he is VERY shy we still have never talked on the phone only text and email... I do know he is not a "catfish" due to a friend of mine went to school with his brother... but I'm ready to at least talk by now... we talk for hours and we both enjoy the time we text together... any pointers???

I'm texting with this guy for a couple of months and I think Im in love with my text mate! We often text everyday but we haven't meet in person yet.We both shared our interests and dreams for the future. He planned to marry me so I asked him if we could see each other in person and He said, he is busy with his work. do you think he is serious with me? pls help :(
