I think sometimes with on-line friends and connections with people...people are looking for a fun fantasy. Someone to talk to, open up with and that they can pretend what a future would be like in a make-believe world. When people talk about moving to "meet" in the real world... the fanstasy & fun of make-believe is now over and they get scared of who or what the other person may be. I met only one person in real life that I have ever talked to on the internet... met in a safe public place and I would still never do it again. You have to make sure you are safe.
