How do you feel about two people meeting each other through social media?
i don't agree with it but i would not tell anyone what to do,to me its like picking a name out of phone book and calling some one and sharing all about yourself just not what i would want to do to find love.
I'm not sure if you mean romantically, but... I've met a bunch of people from Twitter! Some of my close friends, actually. I am very very thankful for it bringing us together, I value my friendships with those people a lot.
Let me tell you a story:
I'm an artist, and I belong to quite a few art groups that are organized through social media. Two years ago, when I was diagnosed with uterine cancer, an artist friend I knew online,who I'd met with for lunch only once, dropped everything, including her own family, and drove eight hours to stay with me for a week after I had surgery, so I wouldn't have to manage by myself.
So, I feel great about meeting people through social media.
I have a friend who actually met her husband through social media and they have been married for 8 years now. Happily as far as I know. When you know, you know, guess it really doesn't matter how you meet them.
I met my current hubby through an online venue and so happy I had that opportunity he's amazing and we would not have likely encountered one another otherwise. If you use common sense, it's no more dangerous to meet someone you've talked to online than it is to meet a stranger out in public. People are so darn paranoid these days. The vast majority of human beings are decent people despite what the media feeds us .
That being said, we actually connected through a local website forum where people were discussing local interests and events etc. After talking for a long time after that, we decided to meet and when we did it was amazing. We had talked before so it wasn't awkward, no pick up lines necessary lol. It was a great experience.
There are disadvantage and advantage on meeting new peole from social media.
it's how you meet the person counts. there's nothing wrong on having a new friend thru social media but the thing is you should know your limitation. Talking with them thru social media is also a way of having someone stranger to listen when you needed one. But as i've said be aware and don't trust too much get to know him/her well before planning on meeting them personally.
