My negative personal experience that I will bring to this is not everyone is honest. I was lied to for years, and I had a feeling because this person wouldn't talk to me on the phone, or skype. If you make a friend, or even maybe a romantic connection, make sure to verify their identity, especially before EVER meeting them.

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

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.

One thing I would suggest is finding a fun activity or discussion topic where you can get to know people online without being too personal. Then once someone is familiar and you know how they play games or talk about their favourite foods or something, you'll have a better idea of if you want to persue a friendship

The more lighthearted sections of forums like this are great for that sort of thing, and online video games can also be good if you're playing one with a friendly community.
