    no farther than online, I am not one for surprises!  To be honest I wouldn't consider trying to meet someone this way, anyway!

    Quite a ways for the right person. I met my husband online, and planned to go to Alaska to meet him...that didn't work out, so he came here, several thousand miles. Now we're planning to take a trip from Wyoming to Indiana to meet up with a mutual online friend. In my opinion, there is no greater chance of meeting an ax murderer online than meeting one in real with anything, you just have to be smart about it and be wary of inconsistent people.

    not far at all.  Meeting someone online can be a dangerous thing to do.  If this is someone you know only from the internet, then don't break your neck trying to meet them in person.  But if you must (and i hope you don't) then meet in a public place like a mall or something.  And don't spend money a lot of money trying to travel to meet someone.  If possible have them come to meet a public place of couse (if you must) smile

    I have had a several hour drive to see people I've met online - BUT - not before I've met them at all! If they're really interested make them do the travelling and even then meet them in a town you know well and have a friend lurking nearby. If they're serious they'll understand why you'd ask this and won't mind you staying in sight of your friends. Do this several times before considering going it alone, by then you'll have an idea of if you even want to make the effort to go long distance in the pursuit of romance. You'll also have the benefit of you friends opinion as an objective third party!

    If there is a great connection and I feel completely safe. PLUS I would have to have known them for a very long time before I could consider meeting them.

    Honestly there would be no limit to how far as long as I knew it was safe and they are a kind person to spend my time, engery and or money to visit.
