 Everyone makes friiiends online and someetimes you get to know people very well. Soem people meet and hang out....others just talk online and do other thing that i am not sure we should discus here. Idk maybe we should, I see alll kinds of things going on in this online comuntitty...so why do you make friiiens with people here? Would you ever meet anyone from here or are you scared to?

 Kobe_lova and I are trying to agree on a deal, regarding where we'll meet. I want it to be far enough north that I can understand people if I need to ask for directions or order some food and she wants it to be in a state where people outnumber cows. But even if we do figure that out, I think we should get a place with two beds and she wants to share one. This meeting Qers thing is so hard.
I am scared to meet people  
#10 | 1280 days ago

i think in such a busy world, its easy to connect and make friends on line....i have met lots of people from other chat rooms i have been part of over the years..nd it was a blast meeting....we all need people nd social interactiveness..and the internet has made it easy..its just another avenue of making friends and meeting prople..for people that do not like the bar scene  its a wonderful alrernative.....
#11 | 1280 days ago

I haven't met anyone I met online yet.  It's a tough situation for me since I'm neurotically full of stranger danger, but I'm sort of in a "rehab program" for that.  At least we'll call it that.
So far, so good ... I think I'm on step, ohhhh, 11,839 right about now.

I have met over 60 people I have met online, mostly at Sporting Event, some I have been to multiple events with, and I have met 5 or 6 from here. Except in 2 cases they were all Great meetings and I still talk regularly to most of those folks. I will say in the 2 cases they were Brutal failures. One which was a Member of this Community, which didn't even have the decency to tell Me that they changed their mind or whatever. I blew a few hundred dollars in that deal, so just be careful, there are LOSERS even in here. All in all, because of the Friends I made it is way worth it.
wtf?(the new beaner)  
#14 | 1280 days ago

Depends on who I am meeting and why. There are a lot of cool people on here that I would like to meet, I'm sure there will be more too. But I have never had the chance, I'm hoping to meet some this fall though.

I have some very good friends on here , but there is only one i really like to meet one of these days , and that person know who they are and understand me and been here for me  and i thank them with all my heart 
#16 | 1280 days ago

HAVE met lots of great people on here and if the oppurtunity ever came about. i wouldnt mind meeting them in person..........
#17 | 1280 days ago

Our chat room had a chat meet in the yr 2000.  I met many nice people who i am still friends with today.  Several have passed on.    I have met  4 guys  and 3 became bfs.   No i am not afraid of meeting people but i do talk to them a long time on here first.   I think i am pretty good at judging their character.

#18 | 1280 days ago

i have met some very nice people on here!! and there are a few i would really like to meet!! hang out with, talk with and just get to know them alot better then i do now!! and yes one day i will be meeting them!! you know who you are. lol

#19 | 1280 days ago

This is the first and only site where I've made friends that I'd really ike to meet in person, I'm not really into social networks, not in facebook or  twitter. I think here is pretty fun and safe.

There are a few of you that I get along with and think are cool but, "friends"....well, "friends"  have the tendency to desire what is best for the other.  They are truthful with and about the other person. They give each other emotional support. There is a mutual understanding between friends. They trust each other without fear of being judged. They show Sympathy and Empathy.

Unfortunately, I haven't bonded that way (in regards to all aspects) with anyone YET, but, I HOPE TO!!!  There are a number of you on here that I have a lot in common with and show some of the above traits and I think that we could be really good friends.  

As far as being scared, or not, to meet anyone on here.........Not scared at all......it would be very cool to meet some of you, hang out, etc, etc..... Plus, i'm one of the most easy going, laid back people you'll ever meet!

As far as the "other things" go........Whatever works for both parties......it's all good either way.  To each, their own!

 I've met five people from the Q over the years. All very wonderful people. It's just another avenue to meet new friends. As Violet said, I don't do the social networks, I'm busy enough with my business and life.

Soooooo     does this mean you aren't coming to see me?  
#25 | 1280 days ago

Like some above, I have a stranger phobia------------caused by lots of Lifetime/Dateline/20/20 specials/real-life experiences. Takes me awhile to get use to a person enough to "talk" with them, and even then I've got the virtual pepper spray ready. 

With that said, there are several I'd enjoy meeting (in a group)-----One I'd totally have a blast taking to a Kings game. 

Go online friiinds!

With each and every moron I meet in real life, I am beginning to hate humans, more. They say that within a matter minutes of meeting a man, a woman knows whether or not she will sleep with him. I am starting to realize that within a matter of minutes of meeting another human. I know whether or not I will have to find a new place to hide another body.

Would I meet anyone from here?  I guess I could at a sporting event since it'll be a public place with lots of witnesses just in case they are a psycho! 

Seriously though, I have made a few friends here and it would be great to meet at a game and cheer with them!  I'm sure it is a long process to work out all the details needed from which game to go to, place to stay, and so on...

Yea, she told me about that one, though until now I didn't know it was you--she wanted to try out a new strap-on dildo and thought you'd be the perfect candidate.......time to go to the net and pick up some balls.....

i think we should have a group meet...find a location that everyone agrees on, or the majority agrees on..like Vegas or Tahoe..since there is so much to do..and the weather is great...and everyone pays their own way..Many hotels wil give a good rate on a block of roooms too:)  be a blast:)
