Would you ever meet online friend in person?
Let's say you meet some people online through a common interest (ie: video games, BDSM community). you "bond" with these people who you find to be spread throughout the world, but mostly in central Europe and the states. You spend at least a year texting, voice calling, and even video calling some of these people as you continue to grow as people and learn about each other. Eventually the idea of a European meet up gets thrown around and you sit back and consider. " I have heard and seen what these people look like so they are not physically catfishing. I love to travel, have saved up money to pay for my expenses, and would be seeing the places where some of these people live, but meeting up with "strangers" in your own country has been taught as a big no-no, let alone half way around the world."
given the situation, would you go visit these people (and why)?
