If youŽve been on the internet with someone for a while, youŽll want to meet him or her in person. If possible, make the first date for one afternoon or evening - at a public place like a restaurant or skating rink. No matter how well you think you know this person, you may find them vastly different in real life, and you donŽt want to be locked into an entire weekend. See how well you work with this person in real life, how well you hit it off and get along. If things work out, you can always plan a longer get-together for next time, or even extend the current visit.
