I tried meeting someone online once. She stalked me and tried to run me over with her truck once.

I have friends for whom Internet encounters blossomed into thriving real-life relationships. I also have friends who have been very badly hurt financially, emotionally, and in one case physically, as a result of online entanglements.

Obviously, there are some real success stories. But there are quite a few horror stories, too, so I would urge everyone to use caution (particularly the youngsters.)
