    Let this be a lesson.....

    Source

    Lesson 1: To those of you who believe that what you do on the internet is not tracable. It took one comment that "she was meeting somone off the internet" from her mother and the perpetrator was caught within 9 hours(?)

    Lesson 2: When you "meet" someone on the internet you meet only some text.... You have none of the usual "body language" which we still use daily without understanding properly that gives us the "warning" signs.... Whenever you meet someone on the internet you _need_ to take appropriate subsequent precautions.....

    Yow! How very true, one never knows who's on the "other side". That is a very sobering story, one that makes me think about and review my current personal policies for online contact. Thanks for the info Tiger Shark.

    I met mine on AntiOnline, and I'm pretty sure we could be an example for other couples

    Hey Hey,

    I also originally met my GF online (we've been living together for over 6 months now)... We were from the same hometown and occasionally saw eachother at concerts and what not... but never talked. We talked online and on the phone... When she decided to come to school down here (I'd moved here the year before)... I said I'd show her around town.. We were already very close.. after that things just got a whole lot better.... or worse (depending on the time of the month )

    Peace,
    HT

    I've been hearing about this story since the day it happened... Local news is blaring the hell out of it, it's kinda getting old... Guess I'll just have to watch less than my 15 min. of TV every day :P...

    But yeah, at any rate, be careful in general. People this sick will get you one way or the other, internet or no...

    You will all, of course, notice that each of you that piped up saying you met your SO's online are all male..... Is there a pattern...

    Actually a good friend of my sweetie and myself met her husband online but she came to me to ask how to organize the first meeting etc. because she is a smart lady... . Everything went fine, Dave is a cool guy, and they got married about 4 months ago.

    But my original points still remain.
