    To be honest, he sounds a bit dodgy and I wouldn't if I were you. But if you do decide to meet him, then please dont go alone, and meet in public. <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    hmmmm, the internet is a haven for people to hide their identity, and be someone they are not. for all you know this guy could be a married man who is out for a quick lay without the want to pay for it. Sorry to be blunt but the world is a scary place and not everybody is who they say they are on the net. Just be careful, meet him with some of your friends with you and in a crowded place so lots of people can see you!

    Let me know how it goes..

    Don't go! You're only 15 and any 20 year old with an ounce of respect for himself and other people would never have agreed to it in the first place really.

    He probably does have a girlfriend and he probably does just want a quick shag.

    It is better to be safe and wonder 'what if?' than be raped, attacked or even killed by some bloke you don't know.

    Imagine how other people would feel if something bad happened to you.

    Good luck in making the right decision.

    I agree...don't go <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Keep talking to him if you want, I suppose there's not much harm in that but it does sound a bit dodgy <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    If you decide to meet him anyway then tell people where you're going and take a friend!

    dont do it, all the warning signs are there. sounds really dodgy. he could be anyone. if you do go, take an adult with you, im not being funny, and get them to meet in your own town, dont go to their territory.

    Go with your gut instinct so to speak. If it feels totally right with you then your mind is made up and you should go <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> But do take care ok??

    But if there is the slightest bit of doubt in your mind and gut <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Then as I'm always told .... 'If in doubt leave it out' ...

    However saying that I've actually met 4 people from online. <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Great people, and I trusted them, spoke to them on the phone, webcam etc, for atleast 4/5 months before I met them. But it was worth and I learned a hell of a lot from it all, and made some great friends out of it too <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Best of luck with what you choose!
