Q: What if you meet someone online that lives in another state that meets your five non-negotiables? You have developed a deep bond, have researched them, and it seems you appear to be perfect for each other and want the same things. You have asked to meet them and they say it wouldn’t be a responsible thing to do due to distance. They are extremely helpful to you, supportive of you, have sent you gifts and done countless gestures to assist you with making life easier and have admitted that they find you beautiful inside and out. But they won’t meet you. What do you do?

A: If someone will not meet you in person, there’s something else going on. Maybe they are married and are living vicariously through you’re interaction in a fantasy land to escape their own reality? It doesn’t matter if the person you are chatting with online lives next door or in another state, if they refuse to meet you in person there is something funny going on. That’s why I have a rule in my second book, “10 Rules to Survive the Internet Dating Jungle” you must meet in the flesh within 2 weeks. That’s the only way to find out if they really are who they say they are.
