Maybe it's just a generational thing, but I think there is a difference between meeting someone on-line, and meeting someone at a party or bar. At least when you meet someone in "real life," you have a chance to size them up: what they look like, how they act, how they talk, who they are hanging out with. All things that give little clues into a person's personality, values, and mental state. It's not 100% perfect, but it's something. On-line, anyone can pretend to be anything. While on-line friends can still be fun, I tend to treat them skeptically (for example, I sort of assume that some of my female "friends" out here are probably actually just guys pretending to be girls), and assume that they might not translate well into real-life friends. Although I have been proven wrong on that at least once.
Having said that, I still don't really get the point of the ID trade. Someone who is willing to meet you face-to-face is probably not a complete fake. And so you verify the person's name. So what?
Sure it is different but if you have been talking online for a long period of time you can actually get to know someone better then if you had met them in a bar or a club. Online all you can really do is talk and listen and you get to learn more about that person then if you had just meet them. And sure there are some people posing as others but I would imagine if you have been talking awhile you would be able to get a sense of if they are telling the truth or not.
Topic i have surgical scars. is it a turn off?

I wouldnt want to be with any man that was superficial enough to care about my scars. I have scars from operations and from pregnancy. I look at them as badges of honor.. each one of them is apart of who I am and what has made me who I am today. It should make no difference on what they think of you as a whole.
Topic The News: Do you sometimes turn the other way?
01 Feb 2011 15:03
I dont often turn away from the news but every once in awhile I see something and it just really gets to me so much I have to turn away. Sometimes instead of turning completely away it just makes me cry. Especially when I see something about children. It breaks my heart and as a mother I just think of how heartbreaking it would be. That can really get to me.

Perhaps if you feel you need to go to such extremes you are not ready to meet. If you have been talking awhile it should give you some indication on the truth of who they are. Perhaps you need to give it a little longer and talk some more first?
