It's considered risky behavior, but of course it's not uncommon by any means...If I were to, personally, of course I would talk to them a little
beforehand, and we would meet somewhere nearby (not in another state) and in a public to somewhat public setting at least for our initial meeting...
Would I drive to another state randomly with said stranger without getting to know them better first? Mmmm..... probably not, not unless the
circumstance was unique.
Different people have a different scale for what they consider less risky and more risky. It really all depends on what each individual person's
comfort zone is. Some can feel they can evaluate and take on more risk than others may. It's personal preference, but that should not negate common
sense. Common sense should always come first.

PS: You can get to know someone really well, and at a personal level online, believe it or not. Those who do not spend a lot of time talking to others
online (like maybe you) might not know that. If you want advice to help talk her out of it you should try to be down to earth with her instead of flat
out disapproving and complaining about her choices. Tell her you understand the perception of affinity and trust she might feel with said stranger,
but that things can become a different ballgame when you physically interact with another, and that some behaviors and routines can be easily hidden
in online communication.
