It's almost impossible to really get to know someone soley through email communication. I'll do maybe 5 or 6 emails back and forth to get a feel for the person's general personality and then quickly try to set up a meet. In my experience, meeting someone in person after a few months of chatting online is almost always weird and disappointing.

If you are trying to find a relationship on a dating site you should:
1. spend some days corresponding by e-mail
2. Talk on the phone. Never give out your phone number to a stranger! May be use a prepaid cellular phone.
3. If you still like the person try to find out as much as you can about him or her before going on a real life date
4. Go on a real life date.
5. Fall completely in love :-)
6. Marry and be happy the res tof your life :-)

That's the way online dating should work.

I beleave dating site are a good way for shy people trying to meet and also itis good for anyone. Good relationships can be forged online but you do need to make sure that you corespond and make sure you do have simialr intrests.

Finaly when you do go to meet the person take a friend with you just for abit of safety because at the end of the day to do not know that this person is who they say they are

Definitley true, you can't get to know someone purely by email. I like to build a kind of 'history' with conversation over email.
Get a running joke going or something.
Then try to organise a phone call. I'm not the most confident person in the world, but this helps. Following on from a phone conversation organise a date... Again, I find it difficult to chat and get self concsious easily, so building a bit of a foundation first, helps alot!
