Advice: Meeting someone using an online dating service?

Dear Beerhaze,

I’m in an online relationship where I have been dating this guy for almost 8 months and we love each other. I feel that this guy is the one for me and I’m thinking about setting up a real-life date.

My question is: Do you have any tips for a first date when meeting someone using an online dating service?

Dear Eye Brisket,

You haven’t even met the guy yet, so why not slow down a little bit with the proclamations of love? Everyone are not always what they seem to be, once you get past emails, texts and phone calls.

Ask for the following from the guy you have met online before actually meeting up:

  • Copy of his social insurance card, birth certificate, driver’s license, and passport.
  • Blood, urine and stool samples.
  • Sworn statements from his mother, co-workers, and all ex-girlfriends/wives attesting that he is not a nut-job.

The meeting place should be somewhere public: A Police Station is always a safe bet. Having him photographed, fingerprinted and swabbed for DNA could be a fun first date activity!
