Is Facebook stalking before a date a bad idea?
I'm set to meet someone this week I met via OKCupid (one of the few times I've felt inclined to actually reach out). We've exchanged some pleasantries and seem to have a very similar background. She's offered up her Facebook profile already. My concern is this: I'm very reluctant to add anyone on FB unless I've actually met them in person or have a very, very, very good connection to them. How would be a good way to say, "Let's just wait till we meet in person before we Facebook stalk each other?" I've been very tempted to check out her FB page, but I've held back so as not to create unrealistic expectations for myself. Thanks in advance for your advice.
