I would have to agree with Oscat77 , it is best to try and find out as much as you can about the person befor the BIG meeting but it takes time to know someone and that can only be done spending time with them. I have met some really nice lady's from POF and dated one longer than 4 month's but it still did not work out for us.
Make sure you meet up in a public place, nothing too formal.
Meet up at lunch time if you want to be able to cut it short if you feel it's not working out or you start to feel a little anxious.
If at any time you get an odd vibe, or feel remotely uncomfortable, you can just hang up, and not worry about ever talking to this person again.
Alternatively, you may just find the online dating prospect on the other end of the phone you're chatting with so intriguing, that you want to meet them as soon as possible.
In the US, a University of Chicago study shows that more than a third of those who married between 20 met online, up from 19 per cent just five years ago...rarely email, we msn often and meet whenever we can. I have met numerous times, but our friendship is about 98% online..my choice but theirs.They are exactly the same in real life as they are online, if it was not for online, I would have never been able to get to knwo them.Starting with a coffee date also gives you less time to get anxious or self-conscious because there’s less build up.Financially, it’s also a good idea because it allows you to meet lots of matches without splashing out on expensive dates. Some people are anxious to know all they can about someone before meeting them.You're excited about a person that you've met online.
