But if you do become close enough friends online, what usually happens is people want to meet up irl. Why not? Even if its just for a quick drink or coffee, this will only strengthen your bond together. Gizmodo gives some tips on meeting up with an internet buddy and not falling into awkwardness.
Do A Group Meetup
It can awkward if it’s just two of you as there may be a lot of pressure to keep the conversation going. A group meetup can keep things more lively as there are just simply more people in the mix.
Meet In Public
Of course, we’re still talking strangers on the internet here. So don’t let your guard down entirely yet and just open your house’s front door for them. Meeting somewhere like a bar or restaurant will go over well.
