There are tons of real life stories.. And websites devoted specifically to educate people on the dangers of meeting someone online. The anonymity of the "person" you are talking to allows said person to be anyone they believe you want, which is a huge psychological stimulant for many sexual predators.
Indeed. Very likely. Rather than 6 billion people, there are only about 361 million Internet users. 1,000,000/361,000,000 = 0.00277 * 100 = 0.28% chance of meeting a murderer. Plus, it's likely that there's less than one in a million murderers. That being said, if you were to meet 400 people from the Internet, only about one would likely be a murderer. And, as I said, the number of murderers is probably less than that. The risk of meeting a murderer is very low. Sorry OP, FYL
158- there are people who make more than 1 Facebook account. I know that at my job, my coworkers make at least 2 because of confidentiality reasons in our job field. With that said, I'm sure that the stats has changed as well, if not in the 5 minutes it took me to type this.
Hey, at least it was just a random jerk from online and not someone serious. Pretty rude of him, though. I'd chalk it up to a win that he not only didn't steal anything while you were gone, but left so that you dont have to deal with him.
1. That was extremely rude of him to do that without telling you he was just not feeling up to the date after all. But you win, you can now find someone else who is not an asshole. 2. Maybe you didn't do this, but did you have an upto date picture of yourself and present the way you truly looked? I have had guy friends walk out of dates when the girl they asked out online turned out to be years older or stones heavier than they depicted online. They did not like to be lied to and would not have minded if the woman had been overweight, but disliked that the girl they were "advertized" turned out to be a lie.
