Online Dating Uncertainty

Dear Sugar
I met someone online, and within the month that we've been talking via e-mail and the telephone, we've come to a point where we can talk about anything.

We talk about marriage, kids, life and even sex. I have yet to meet him, but what are some things that I can look for to see if he is the one or if this is all just a big waste of time?

He just moved from California to AZ for a 2 yr training period, but we have talked about me moving there. Do you have any advice? Cyber Love

Dear Cyber Love
I think that you need to meet your cyber prince charming face to face to see if this is the real deal. You can completely hide behind a computer or a telephone and pretend to be anyone you want to be.

I don't mean to sound pessimistic and ruin your hopes for an everlasting love affair with this man, but for all intents and purposes, he's a stranger. You've got to spend some time together before you uproot your life for him.

Also, it's only been a month (and it sounds like a very exciting month), but it takes time to really get to know another person. It definitely sounds like you are off to a good start, but there's no need to rush it - especially if it's meant to be.

Lastly, when you go and meet him - please do it for the first time in a public place. I've heard lots of amazing internet romance stories, but unfortunately, I've also heard a lot of scary, creepy ones. It's just better to be safe than sorry.
