How do you know which type of situation you are will face on your first date? Well, one option is to simply ask the online biker friends who invite you to ride for the first time. If you believe them to be honest in their assessment of the situation, you can easily find your answer there.
However, if you are uncomfortable with the direct approach, or feel that the answer you get may be less than truthful, there are a few things to recognize in their interactions with you that may give you a clue. Please keep in mind though, that these are not hard and fast rules, and situations are unique to the individual.
The first thing to consider is the overall tone of the conversations that you are experiencing with your online biker match on the biker dating site, especially when the subject of meeting in person is approached. Often people who are more comfortable online will be extremely engaging, and interactive when having a conversation with online biker friends, but will become slightly more distant when the idea of meeting in person is approached. They might become vague where they were previously specific.
They may also try to subtlety change the subject. Or they might show an increased interest in you to offer a type of diversion. However, if the tone of their conversations, the ebbs and flows of their interest seem to be consistent across a broad range of subjects, including meeting in person, the interest in doing so may be closer to the surface.
