    I think he is being as careful as you should have been.

    I definetly agree with DN! The internet isn't a safe thing, you shouldn't be giving out your name like that. It's really not safe. You may have been talking to him a lot each day, but 2 weeks is nothing. Even if you've been talking to this guy for 2 yrs there is no absolute certainty that he is a safe guy. What I'm getting at is you just need to be careful about these things and to respect his wishes not to tell you.

    Yeah. I actually don't give my last name until *after* meeting someone.

    Nothing's wrong with him at all. He's smart. It's probably best to either meet him soon or find someone in real life.

    Ok, now I'm going to take an opposite view. If she is going to meet him in person, wouldn't it be good if she knew his last name? True, he could be a good guy who is just careful about giving out person info over the net.... or..... he could be a psycho who doesn't want his personal info given out so stuff can't be traced back to him

    Do you think that he's being sketchy or cute when he told you he wouldn't tell you his name?

    You should meet in person soon, but meet at a public place, preferably Starbucks during the day. And not around the corner from your house!!!

    Wouldn't he just use a fake name then? If he wanted to build confidence because he's a creep, couldn't he just pull a name out of his butt to satisfy the OP?

    hmmm.... true......

    ok, I am just paranoid

    But, you should get some identifying information about him before you meet him in person!
