Some people go straight from using the anonymous messaging system on their dating agency to a face-to-face meeting. If you both feel happy to do that then go for it! Most people though seem to move from internet relationships to the telephone and then on to the face-to-face meeting.
Meeting face-to-face is the most important part of all. You can find out so much about each other without saying a word! By looking at someone, the way they move, how they talk and just facial expressions tell you so much. And it will tell you the answer to the all important question, that no dating agency can tell you - is there any chemistry between you?
This isn't a blind date - you should already know an awful lot about each other. However, just because you've met up and got on well - don't assume it's a 'done deal' and you're going to live happily every after. Men are far more likely to jump to that conclusion than women. Women tend to be far more cautious. At the end of the day you both joined an online dating agency to meet each other - it doesn't mean that the courting period will or should be any shorter than if you'd met each other in some other way. There is a lot more to go through before either of you should be thinking about making it more permanent.
