My son is 4 yrs older than my daughter. She has always looked mature for her age and is very beautiful. We were always on the lookout for guys from my son's hockey team or something trying to get to know her, even with the huge age gap. There was always someone posting ' Yo, Wassup..' on her MySpace or suddenly coming onto her Instant Messaging saying ' Hey, want to go to a party?' [ these would not be actual 'friends' of my sons, just random team mates or acquaintances.]

Celina and my daughter were in very different circumstances. My daughter spent her middle school summers in Malibu's junior lifeguards program. She was on the beach with cute surfers and she is not shy. So when she got any strange or anonymous comments on her computer she always instantly deleted and blocked them. She had no urge to meet any new friends. But Celina was shy and she did not have a way in her daily life to meet and communicate with cute boys. I think she was aware that she was going to turn into a very pretty teen, but was probably feeling awkward at the time. So in her situation, IF an anonymous screen name began talking to her, imo, she would answer. I think someone could begin an online relationship by IM'ing her, and complimenting her, listening to her. And they may have, knowing her sister was gone, suggested she come outside and see who her secret admirer was. She may have thought he was 13, 14 or so, and he may have been 20, 30, 40....
