Is your client caught up to the current block?

Can you check the address on blockexplorer.com, or post the address here so we can check it?

My address I used is 1MeQai3fHDsHcdVLS12muKeySobqxuwcXZ

Think it's time I contact paypal?  Could someone guide me through on how to recollect my funds that I sent via paypal.

In the beginning I requested proof of her BTC.  Here's the pic she sent

http://i.imgur.com/t7171.png

 The address in that pic is

1DyrWHVDrnredkQPdKbjaxMMatMLNLauY9

The "wallet" she used is

1516rnmGUDeF4vyBX3NDR5eXd22yKZdPHR

Going by that site you mentioned, I see no 25BTC transactions anywhere.

If you guys think I have been scammed (considering she said she sent the BTC, which you all saw) what's the best way to handle this?  Thank you guys so much for your help and feedback to a newb such as myself.

The address in the image is her receiving address.

And what do you mean by "wallet"?

In an email she said

"By the way, I'll assign the same wallet address to you as I use for the rest of bitcointalk.org: 1516rnmGUDeF4vyBX3NDR5eXd22yKZdPHR"

So I assume that's the address she sends it from?

By wallet I mean a BTC address that is handled online instead of the bitcoin client.

So if you look at her address she used, you can see the 1 BTC she sent when we were testing teh waters after I sent her $10, but there is no amount for 25 BTC.  Does this mean I have been duped for certain, or can it take time?  She said the amount was sent, but it does not appear that way. 

Anyone seen BTC take so long to even show up in someone's wallet?

If it had been sent to that address, it would already appear in block explorer.

I'd give her a day to contact you here or by email.  Could just be a silly mistake, and waiting a day won't change anything with PayPal.

Wait until tomorrow or I will think that the scammer is you.

Alright, I will wait a day.  She was VERY responsive in her emails and seemed intelligent, coherent, and friendly.  She really doesn't strike me as a scammer, but I have been burned before and it sucked.

Thanks for popping in and giving your input guys.  I have a lot of bitcoin politics to learn.

You may get your PP account/funds frozen for 180 if you notify PP. I will never understand why people continue to  risk using PP for BTC transactions. Good luck to you nonetheless.

How long did the 1 BTC take?

My wallet doesn't show any BTC transactions, does it take longer to receive the BTC because it's higher than 1 BTC?

Yep.

The 1 BTC appeared instant.  Took a an hour or two to confirm it.

Can you explain why PP for BTC is frowned upon?  I do appreciate you taking time to respond to this situation, but could you elaborate?  PP would freeze my account for 180 days because I tried to buy bitcoin?

Paypal cannot verify that the bitcoins were actually delivered.  It would be like trying to confirm a face to face cash transaction.

So then, if she is scamming me I have a chance of getting that money back?  Even if it was moneypak money?  I just want BTC but this whole ordeal certainly taught me a lesson.  Hopefully she responds in this thread within 24 hours.  If not I'll end up contacting paypal.

EDIT:  Well it's been a long day, I'm going to sleep.  Hopefully I wake to gmail response from her, or a response in this thread.  If not my heart will sink and I will have learned trusting anon is foolish.
