Have you ever met an online friend in person?

I've met a few, and all have gone well. I'm meeting another one later this month. It's always a bit exciting and also nerve-wrecking. ^^;

Nope. Most of the people I meet are from another continent and I don't go outside unless I have to so I've never really had a chance.

No, not really. All my online friends live across the continent. It would be an interesting experience though.

No I have not, but every online friend I know, I've extensively chatted with them on Facebook.

With a slightly different meaning.

I used to play Enemy Territory online yeeeears ago in some small Spanish clan that had a few random Finns. Couple years after that I ended up in the same school and class with 3 of those Finns.

Yes. Twice. The first time meeting someone was a disaster and the second time, different person, she stayed with me for a week and it was fun. Though pretty much immediately after that she has stopped talking to me. I'd do it again though.


Also pretty sure there is a thread for this already. I just don't feel like looking for it.

Yes. I met 5 others from the same gaming community at once. One I met on the train going to Boston. All of us had never met the other in person before. We spent 10 days in 2 hotel rooms for PAX east. It was the most fun I've had with a group of friends.

When you get to know someone over years online, there is nothing out of place when it comes to hanging out in person.


And yes, there is already a thread like this. But who caarrresss

There's this: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-853683/meeting-online-friends-in-person

It's been cold for about a month, not sure if that would account for necromancy here

I have. As she was a girl and I'm a guy, first it went well and then it became a horrible mess, because both had different intentions about the meeting in mind.

Note to self: Don't try to hit girl from online unless you are absolute sure about her intentions, or the whole years of close online friendship is over like snapping the fingers.

Most of mine have been in a different country, but some of them I wish I got the chance to meet... It's a shame how you can feel so close to someone talking to them online but when you think about it, they are really far away. Sadly, I've lost contact with all of those friends- well, either that or we just stopped talking... Kinda depressing, huh?

I don't know if I have ever seen anything happen over necroing a thread so it might not really be a thing here. I just know that at some point if a thread is inactive long enough (not sure how long) if a new thread is created the old just gets locked. Might be the case for this one. Either way I'm not in a very caring mood. Just thought I would point out the possibility of this one being locked.

I wish. At least most of my online friends are far away.
