Finally meeting people in the real world after first encountering them online can be a little weird, especially if you've developed a relationship with someone in the virtual realm before finally seeing them in the flesh. Sometimes, things work out. Other times, well, they don't—and that applies not just to personal relationships, but also to professional ones.
