Healthy Online Relationships Quest
Meeting someone in person for the first time that you met online can pose a risk. People aren’t always who they say they are – It’s important to be aware when and if you’re meeting someone you met online for the first time in person.
JohnnyB has been liking and commenting on all your posts. You have been DMing back and forth and he is really easy to talk to. You have been struggling with stuff at school and at home, and since he doesn’t go to your school you don’t have to worry about what you say to him. He suggests that you guys meet at the park after school. It would be great to finally meet in person – what do you do?
What will you do? (Choose One)
Say yes and decide on a time and location to meet.
Tell him you would like to meet but maybe it would be better to meet at a coffee shop and bring a friend or an adult you trust with you.
You tell him you aren’t comfortable meeting him in person and if it gets uncomfortable, block him and/or tell someone.
