i've been playing online games for a while now and some of my best online friends seem like really cool people. i feel like if we would ever hang out, it would be the best time ever. i've actually met some of my online friends in person (because they didn't live far) and they turned out to be my best actual friends.. would you ever hang out with friends you met online? unless you know them personally.

I actually have a friend I met online three years ago that I've wanted to meet in person. Sadly he moved quite a distance away so I'd have to fly to meet up now. So yes, I would hang out with friends I've met online.

that must feel terrible. i have dealt with the reality of not seeing some of my online friends ever because of distance a few times. they're still badass online friends though!!!

I would like to meet a scarce few, but I'll never hold my breathe over it, and I've reservations. I'm melancholic about offline friends who I've lost touch with, as it is.

Personally if I don't know my online friends age and haven't seen their face before I might not want to meet up. Nothing against them like I'll still be their friend but y'know like a common sense 'security' kinda thing?
But otherwise I love meeting my online friends. I've met two of them before I think. One is sort of far away [like a 4 hour drive] but it's fun hanging out with him when we get the chance. And I get to cosplay and go to cons with him sometimes which is really fun too. (:

Yeah I met a guy on my old forum in late 2011, but he lived in Thailand. We talked a lot, eventually moving to Skype and seeing a few pictures of each other that we posted around on the forum. When he came back to Europe last November we met up and spent over a week travelling together. It was awesome.

But yes, I wouldn't rush into this kind of thing as trust is important to me, especially online.

when you have the chance why not depends on the distance and also how good you know each other and trust each other of course. For example if you try to meet the other person isnt coming that would be really disappointing.

Certainly but i wouldn't keep my expectations so high. Even though we do share interests, everyone acts different on the web.

i've met some (seemingly) cool people online, also through games. I've always wanted to meet them, but you never know what they're really like lol..

Once, a long time ago, I went with my dad to a guild meet up for a guild in Everquest, I was a member of the guild as well so a lot of them were happy to see me, but I was like 8 or 9 so since I was a kid I was quickly forgotten about while the adults did adult stuff like drink and go to the casino we were at.

Luckily there was also some who started a D&D game that they let me in on, so I got to do something other than just sit there for the 3 days.


Furthest I have made it since then is being friends on Facebook with a few of my current guildmates from WoW. Most live on the west or east coast (or Australia) while I live in the midwest, so getting together for a meetup is near impossible.


Next closest I probably got is maybe seeing people who used CR at my local anime convention, but since I didn't actually plan to meet up with anyone there from CR, probably means no one on CR lives near me/goes to that con.
