Home PEx Relationships Love - Principles, Practices & Preferences

can you introduce someone you met on the Internet to your parents and friends?

i think most of us are quite familiar with the stigma attached with meeting/dating people online.

so i'm just wondering how you guys are able to handle that?

can you say with a straight face that you met your gf/bf on the Internet?

  • why? you planning to introduce sabaybunot to your folks? :lol:

    If that happens, yes I would, I'm old enough na naman and they're open to the idea anyway. No if I met him, let's say, in a porno site and I used to give him P300 load (where I splurge my money on) everytime just so he'd do a "show". :D
  • mah mom knows im an internet addict so she's not surprised at all when i introduced her a few boyfriends whom i've met online. hehe yun nga lang di nya trip yung isa kong ex. ewan ko lang yung current..tingnan natin ;)

    st... wala kang pag-asa kay sabaybunot... married na siya di ba? or willing ka maging kabit? :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

    but yeah. i met my last boyfriend online. in a forum, actually. :rotflmao: it lasted 6 years. and we're still friends! *okay*

    and my ex's sister. she met her husband online. so, i think it's fairly common nowadays. ;)
  • Yes, definitely. I've invited a couple of online friends (usually girls) at home for sleep overs. I usually do that after quite a long period of getting to know them. Of course you never know whom to trust. I've also introduced a bf i've met online to family, invited him to family occasions, holidays, etc.

    For me, it doesn't matter where I met them (friends, bf), as long as they were able to prove their worth (it goes both ways) as trustworthy individuals. Yes, meeting people online can sometimes be risky, but it is not the only unsafe way to meet people. You can meet someone in a bar or through common a friend and they can be just as bad.

    just to clarify..

    it's just not about simply introducing them. it's about introducing them and actually mentioning you met them thru the Internet.
  • ^ hehe pag tinatanong ng mom ko, "san mo naman nakilala yun?" usual answer..."sa internet.."

    okay naman sa kanya, yung neighbor ko nga medyo late na din nag-asawa. nakilala nya yung bf nya online, american. hatinggabi na nagpaayos pa sya sakin ng PC nya. kaya pala hindi mapakali, may kinakarir pala sa chat hehe.

    why not?! if you really love that person, hinde mo naman siguro ikakahiya kung paano and kung saan kung nagkakilala.... :)
    i have this friend na sobrang addict sa chat... and mostly sa chat na nakikilala yung mga girlfriend nya... and i dont see anything wrong with that...

    kaya lang minsan niloloko namin nya na may gf nga sya kaya lang sa picture lang.. hehe! :bop: kc minsan mag-on na sila pero hinde pa sila nagkikita... :lol:

    "Ma, eto yung naka SEB ko" hahaha
  • Yes. I already did that. I even brought him home kasi, and he met some people at home. He missed my mom though. He went to the house thrice ata. but my mom knew about him and she knew we met online.

    My mom really did not mind me meeting someone online. There is really not much issue regarding it at home.

    I think it was because the first guy i ever met online and have actually dated for a while, was A-okay.
  • yeah pwede. bkit hindi
  • yes, you can actually. sobrang common na nowadays of people meeting, becoming friends (and even more than that) through the internet...
  • well as long as the person is really someone who you can be proud to show to your parent, doesnt matter if i met her in teh intrawebs or off the streets, i willstill show her to my parents.
  • Yep. They know some of my online friends already, and my folks find them friendly and nice. The longest online friend is 6 years now. Take note, she's 20 years older than me, has a husband and kid who I talk to also. I haven't seen her yet, but has been nagging me to visit them for some time now. Basically, I met her because I wrote her a review on a fiction she wrote, and the rest is history. She has always been very maternal toward me in a best friend kind of way.

    everyone around me knows i met my last bf online.

    and i tell my family and friends about friends i meet online too. i actually have an online friend i've been chatting with for almost 8 years now. and i've met her only several times... though we exchange gifts and stuff whenever we meet. :lol:
  • Although meeting people online is so common nowadays, honestly, at first, I was still embarassed so I lied and told my parents that we knew each other already way way back... But as useless, my parents learned the truth na rin that we met online, through chat at that. Nevertheless, he already proved himself worthy naman...he married me na nga eh :D And now when people ask us how we met, we tell them the truth na, that we met thru chat. I realized it was silly to be embarassed because the net was just a way for us to meet.

    Had it not for internet chat, I don't think there would ever be a way for us to meet each other, with him being from Cali and me, NY. We had to work hard to make our relationship work talaga. I guess bottomline is, as long as you feel comfortable naman with the other person and hindi naman cya nakakahiya kasama, then there's no reason to be embarassed naman. :)

    meeting people online nowadays is so common, no more stigma attached to it.

    now,telling people, especially your family members that you met in I&P Forums in PEX, now .. that will cause some concerns if you had posted naughty posts, right?

    i mean you don't want your mom to check into I&P Forums and see what you've been into.

    but if you say .. " this is ________, we met online, strted chatting in YM>>' then get on another topic right away! and make sure -- the two of you say the same story to everyone.*okay* uhum ... me gusto kang ipakilala sa family mo na girl no? uyyy si santo me prospect na.;)
