So take that into consideration I don't understand the concept of meet- and -greet, does the whole online screening really require another screening in real life?

Free pic sharing chat - When to ask a girl out online dating

EDIT:-I would wait at least 3-4 months, or until you've sent about 100 e-mails. I met with someone the day after exchanging the first email. I met a person online and then went on a date the same day...

It didn't bother me at all, of course the guy did turn out to be fairly creepy and I pretty much ran from him...

Depending on what you've arranged for the date, you might be stuck with them for a couple of hours or more.

The concept of the meet and greet is to eliminate all of that.

Ask for her number, call her (don't text her) and ask her out in that phone conversation.

Some people will tell you to not give out your number and set up the meet online, giving your number afterwards.

You will be able to tell by her voice when the time is right. We'll meet for coffe because I'm most attractive when I'm hyper, jittery, and got the runs!

You are just skipping a step in the comfort chain of online dating I think. ": When you meet someone in real life, you are able to gauge if you are attracted to them or not, you can gauge if they are creepy, slick, etc.

If they're seasoned, might be more into meeting right away.
