Nowadays, "We met online" is a common response from couples who are asked how they got together. Online dating can be a great way to meet people and make romantic connections, whatever your age or circumstances. Though it can be scary to take online dating to the next level, it has to be done if you want to progress the relationship. You can't hide behind the computer forever. Asking a girl for her number doesn't have to be a big deal. Timing is important when it comes to moving an online relationship offline.
