You are dating on-line, you meet someone and now spend hours on the phone, emailing and Messenger. You decide it is time to meet.
This is a huge step, and one that may cost either one of you or both, depending on the arangements that you have made with each other, quite a bit of money. A few suggestions for this, to make it easier if things don’t work out. Hopefully you would need to worry and things will be great, but also remember if you are going, the other person may not be able to spend 24 hours a day with you so look for other things to do.
1. Go with the attitute, if things don’t work out, you will have a nice vacation
2. Look to see what things are available in the city that you are traveling to. This way you can do some site-seeing while you are there
3. Both of you discuss ahead of time what options are available, places to stay, how you will get around.
4. Try to stay in an area, that may have restaurants that you can eat in, if you are Shomer Shabbat and Kosher, and going over a weekend, you want to make sure you are in an area where arrangements can be made for you, either in a Hotel, or staying with someone.
Just go with the right attitute, take things slow, and discuss as much as possible, before hand. Be prepared, especially if the distance is far, and it is not a place you can go for a weekend or short period of time. Research a little before going, and network, you may have friend’s or family in the area that you can always call upon
