There is no simple answer to this question. "Probably not" is commonly the most correct answer if you are under 18. "Maybe" if you are an adult.

Be cautious regardless of who you are. Remember that people can say ANYTHING online, they may be lying. And there are predators of all kinds using the internet every hour of every day looking for people they can hurt, abuse or scam or worse.

There are online predators that prey on children AND/OR adults...sexual deviants, con artists, identity thieves, spammers, virus senders, etc. It's best never to reveal personal information to people you meet in chat rooms, in forums, or anywhere online. It's recommended that you don't share your real name, city/address, phone/cell number, etc. Nor other information that could be used to find you like: the name of your school, favorite national sports team, name of nearby landmarks, names of restaurants you like, name or mascot of any group you belong to, etc.

If you are a person under 18 years of age, you are legally a child, and should be VERY cautious about meeting anyone met online. It would be smart NOT to do so without having the person checked out first by your parents or some lawful authority. If they are okay, it shouldn't matter to them. If they are not, you've found out before getting yourself into a potentially lethal situation.

Be very cautious and suspicious. Many times, people online are NOT who you think they are - they could be pretending to be someone just to get friendly with you and when you meet them, they might be dangerous.If you are a kid, you should NEVER agree to meet up with anybody you have met online. It's just too risky.

Depends if the two of you really want that. It's not always safe to expect to have a gf bf relationship with someone you meet online.The mistake ppl make when having a online friendship is one has a fantasy of what the peron will look like and it's most of the time a big disappointment if the two should meet offlineAlso if you do set up to meet a person you met online do it in public, drive your own car and have someone lse with youIt could be risky and lead to a dangerous outcome
