    1)If the sencond person is present at a net cafe, I think
    the first example is correct.
    2)I think your example suits if the second person in the if clause is not at a net cafe .

    Re: Are these correct?

    Bhaisahab's suggestions are quite sensible.

    Perhaps there is some context for those sentences?
