At first, meeting people over the net was one of the things I thought was ackward.
But as the time went by, I started to get used to it, learned to deal with, and here and then I was able to meet some really nice people.
From the net to real life was then a second step that could take some time to happen, since we never know if the person who we're chatting with is the same person as it says it is.
Unfortunately, sometimes we end up wasting precious time that we could be spending with this new person!
But that's life. All things happen when they're supposed to.
