You have met someone on the chat lines that you get along swimmingly with and have decided to take the next step and meet in-person. Don’t panic as this blog will give you tips and recommendations for your first in-person meetup. Getting on the chat lines may have been easy for you but you may be worried about an in-person connection. Remember to check in with yourself prior to the date, to come to terms with any boundaries you may have.

The first thing to remember is that you have likely built a good relationship with the person you’re going to meet so as much as it’s a good idea to look happy and dress well, you will likely connect through the conversations you had on the telephone.

One tip is to pick a location with a casual vibe. That way should anything go wrong, you can just leave and say you’ll contact them soon.

If you feel comfortable meeting them in-person, you likely have shared a lot with one another. This doesn’t mean that you’re not nervous but just remember to mention things you already talked about when you see your phone lover in-person and take it from there! Also, it may ease your anxious mind to think that your phone friend also really wants to meet you too and is likely nervous as well.

Should the date go wrong, there’s no need to worry as you can jump on the chat lines anytime and get connected to new people. The chat lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so even if you want to chat about what’s right for you during the in-person date with a third party, you have that option. The community of people who are on the chat lines is friendly, open, and direct allowing you to bounce ideas and really get down to why you have fears in the hopes of releasing them.
