Very often these unline affairs turn into real life affairs. I've seen cases of people leaving their spouse and children for someone they met online. This is someone that they never met in person. But the emotional attachment gets so strong that they leave their life for that person.
Much more common, especially if the online person is local, are quicky meetups to take the online affair into real life and to up the anty on the excitement.
Ahhh yes, I guess that is definitely a situation where things can get bad. With him though it is multiple people, almost all strangers. He exchanges a few emails and then one or the other stops messaging. Then there is another post months later and a new slew of messages from different people. This is not a relationship that he is building with someone. That would definitely be a cause for concern for me.
