    Why does online 'dating' become such a mind fuck?
    My date had to bail on me tonight, after we've spent a week chatting most days. I've not even met him, yet I think about the possibility of him being amazing quite a lot! And now that
    we've still not met, its left a hole.

    I guess I should refrain from too much cyber chat beforehand and building up a fantasy picture in my head?

    I think generally with online dating it's best, if there's mutual interest) to meet(in public) ASAP. Get a first impression off of an actual first impression.
