I've known a girl in korea for about 3 years now, and I can tell her everything. One of my best friends. I'd do anything to meet her in person.

I've met... far far too many people offline that I knew online first.

Prolly over 30 these days? The most fun one was flying cross country to stay with a friend for a week (well, to hang out with more than him. Had a group of friends out there that I spent the week hanging out with.)

I'm fairly cavalier about meeting people offline that I know online. As long as I feel like they are who they say they are, I'm always down for meeting people. Generally public first, but there have been a handful (like the flying cross country) which was a nice jump. Honestly it's generally down to how comfortable the other person is that determines if/when we meet (and I know very few if any people are as easy going as I about it, so I rarely push for it).

There are a few I met here in CR whom I would really love to meet in person. Too bad most of them live in different countries though and some even on the other side of the globe. -__-

It's hard for me to talk to people online, so imagine me talking to someone in real life. Super awkward.


This pretty much.

Then there's also the fact that I don't go out....

It's all about the kind of online community and the poeple. I've been a part of the IRONFIST multigaming community since 2008. The people from the community that I met in person are great people that I would have become great friends with anyway if there were in my area normally. There is one in particular who paid for my 10 day stay up in Boston to attend PAX east with a group of people from my community. I paid for my tickets of course, but my hotel and food was covered purely out of is pocket. There are some amazing people to be met online. It's all about getting to know them online just like you would in real life. Online just extends your reach far beyond your local area.

I've done it. Except for one weirdo guildie, everyone else I met was cool and we had fun.

It's scary and awkward at first. But, meeting them should be fun I guess.

I've met a couple of online friends from my MMO days offline. Then again...I had been chatting with them for over 6 years and they live about an hour or so away. One is my convention buddy. The other is my book buddy that trades recommendations for fantasy novels. We still chat and are friends

My other online friends live too far away. We are facebook friends though and keep in touch

I guess I wouldn't mind meeting up in real life, of course it would be in a public place at first, just to get use to others
