Re: Members Meeting up???

I met up with one online forum friend, quite some years ago, as she lived in Whitstable, a walking distance from my aunt and uncle. When Mum and I had a visit to the relatives, I arranged to pop round to this lady. She was nervous about meeting, as was I, but it turned out fine.

Lost touch over the years because the forum is no longer going, and can't remember her email address.

I can see where it might prove daunting for most people. Even I am shy and nervous around people, even my own close family! I would stick by my Mum at every 'do'. Once I get to know people, and they me, I can relax.

I agree with you Julie, I have met face to face a couple of people from Dogsey but we both had a common interest (Our dogs) so that was OK.

Re: Members Meeting up???

I have mental images of all the folks I regularly interact with in Over 50's Forum.

I have no wish to actually meet up with anyone, it would spoil the bubble.

No offence intended, but for me the FORUM is the thing.

Yes, stuff is probably best left On-Line, no one in real life can match their On-Line persona, I was convinced of this before there was an Internet.

Re: Members Meeting up???

I think you can get an inkling of what someone is like before you meet them, but obviously can't completely tell what they'll be like in the real world!!

I think if you do think you have a connection, well why not meet? I also know that some people just want to have a cyber friendship. It's up to the individual. I have to say that I've come across members online, near my area, who I would probably choose not to meet with. I just have a feeling that it would be a one off and go nowhere.

My wee group of Scottish pals are meeting up on 9th August to go to Edinburgh, on the new trams, followed by a nice lunch and a wee glass or two of wine. Anyone is free to join us .
