    The MTV Show, Catfish, is a great visual example of what can happen online.

    Pro tip in internet relationships/friendships: don't do it.

    That's pretty much my pro tip for anything, really.

    I noticed one or two people said if someone starts off with something physical, block them. Of course, if that's what you want, especially if you indicate that in your profile, then you don't block. If you like the interest but think it's just a bit too soon, then I'd let the person know you want to take it (a bit) more slow. If they push after that, then you can move on. Part of this process is knowing what you want too and how to express yourself when the time comes.
