Q: I have been talking online with this girl for the last few months. She tells me she loves me and she can’t wait to meet in real life. Should I meet her?

A: It seems that you really like this girl. But how do you really know that she is who she says she is?
- I would recommend that you DO NOT meet this girl face-to-face for your safety. She could be a predator. You never know who people are online.
- But, if you do decide to go even though it is NOT SAFE. DO NOT go alone! Tell your trusted adult where you are going, have an exit strategy, and meet in a PUBLIC place.
