I think the comment that you never really know how its going to go is really, really true. That's why its so scary. Maybe its just me, but I would rather go into a first meeting with this thought very clearly planted in my head, rather than blissfully optimistic that because we'd shared such a great online relationship it was going to be everything I'd dreamed of.The last hurdle was the physical meeting. You never know how that will go. We were so extremely lucky that we were physically drawn to eachother and the sex was good. I still can't believe how perfectly I fit under his arm, like we really were made for eachother.
I think the physical meeting is critical.
Maybe some of the members who have had disappointing experiences can chime in here with their thoughts on their experiences.
