  • Just check them out as best you can like on or (or .org I forgot now). Many online dates turn out to be married so get his home number and call different hours of the day to make sure he's not married. Check country arrest records and make sure he's not a criminal. Other than that, just enjoy it. I did it for ten years and had great luck.

  • It is nearly impossible to have a good online relationship.. especially if its via yahoo messenger. I've got experience with that one! Your best bet is to keep your guard up, and dont buy any BS. I agree with the first poster, check him out! Do your research before you invest your heart.

  • The best advice I could give is don't do it. You have to wonder what is wrong with a man that he has to resort to dating from the internet. What is he hiding? Could it be that he just wants a jumpoff so she isn't part of his day to day life? Or only dates off line so he can do as he pleases without any of them knowing about the other? Stick to the real world.
