Chatting 2 other teens via sms:Advice needed
Hi; are there any teens that chat 2 other teens via sms????
I have met this girl on the net & we have chatting 2 each other since the beginning of this year.She's from Durban & im from JHB. We have never seen each other.We are planning 2 meet in December as i will be in Durban.Im 19 & she's 18.We have got 2 know each other quiet well as we chat everyday via sms & phone each other now & then.Should i meet her????She seems 2 be a very nice person.We were thinking 2 send each other a photo via "camera phones" but then decided it would be better 2 meet as complete strangers...Should we send a photo first or just meet up.

If you have been chatting for so long and you would like to meet her while you are in Durban why not speak to her about this and see if she is also interested in meeting. As always when meeting a stranger tell someone where you are going and always meet in a place where there are lots of people around such as a shopping mall. You can even take someone with you who will be in the area and you can then call them to come and meet you if the date isn’t going well and you want it to end. Sometimes photos can be deceptive and not like the real person, so it can often be better to meet in person and go from there.

Hope it works out for you – be safe.
