Tips When First Meeting Your Online Friend


Nowadays many people are using the Internet to meet that special someone. If you begin to use the Internet to meet a great gal, then there are a few things you need to know before you meet them. These things that you need to know are important to have a smooth transition from an online chatting relationship to one that is face-to-face.

Here are some tips to follow to make the transition easier.

* Arrange a friendly meeting with her. When you meet the person for the first time, face-to-face, after only talking in a chatroom it may be a good idea to begin the relationship as friends. If you take the relationship too seriously and move to fast it may place too much pressure on the girl and it will not work out. Also you have to make sure that she is, in actuality, the girl who you thought she was when you were chatting online. Because of this you need to keep a lid on your emotions and keep the first meeting light and friendly.

* Picking the place to meet. It can be a big thing when your online chat buddy really wants to meet you face-to -ace. To be comfortable with the primary meeting let the girl choose where it will be. She will feel more comfortable in the place she chooses, which in turn will make you more comfortable. You should not be afraid to suggest somewhere but let her make the decision. A lunch meeting is a great first meeting, as it tends to be shorter and, generally, alcohol is not involved, which can impair judgment.

* Dressing for the first meeting. To make sure that things for the first meeting are comfortable for the both of you be sure that you know what she is wearing. If she is dressed formally and you are dressed casually it can make things awkward. The first meeting should be casual, as you should be focused on the person and now what they are wearing.

* Have fun. When you meet for the first time you should anticipate the meeting. You should have some things in common after chatting online so it should be fun for you both. Have a good attitude going into the meeting. There will be a few butterflies but the meeting should be another step in possibly a wonderful relationship.

* Getting in touch with her after the meeting. You will find out quickly if the first meeting is a good one. If you had fun then you can send her an e-mail telling her what a great time you had. This is a way that you can keep the relationship moving without putting too much pressure on her. If you want to keep seeing her than you have to take some initiative. Sending an e-mail is a great way to get that second date without coming on to strong.
