  • I have met a few people through cafemom. (Meet in a public place if you do meet in person.) One I met & we had a nice conversation, then never connected again. Another one I met about 3 years ago, & are still friends today. A third friend I met through a yahoo homeschool group, & we are very close friends, she is the one who invited me to cafemom, & although we can't see each other anymore because we moved 1200 miles away, we stay in close contact through cafemom & facebook, as well as regular e-mail.

    Don't close yourself off, this is real life. Sometimes you meet people that you think you clicked with, but nothing comes of it, or it isn't mutual, then you'll meet someone else that you don't feel a connection with.....then you'll meet someone where there is a definite connection on both sides... those are the lucky meetings. It's not easy to make good friends, be open, cautious, & don't give up!

  • Yes, I have. I met a mom that lived in my city and we ended up having lunch at chickfila and that was 2 1/2 years ago. We are still very good friends and we even go on vacation together. Another one invited me to church, and we went. We still go to church there even though they moved. Another one I spoke to about some clothes I was going to buy from her for my daughter. I enjoyed our conversation, but she was a bit strange. When we would talk about the kids and our families, she was very normal and fun, but when we talked about clothes, she got all snobby and made sure I knew how expensive all of it was and what she did for a living and how much money she had...that went back and forth about 3 times. I would have rather spoke to the person who was being real with me and finding things in common, but the "other" personality bugged me. That was the only weird experience I have had.

  • That's one of the reasons I joined cafemom. I must moved to Maryville, TN and don't know anyone. By finding people in my area who are in my groups, I know I have something in common. I have already done the same with some other social media outlets and it's been fun. Of course, I don't put myself in bad situations. I meet them for coffee at a local hangout and then lunch, and then ... you get the idea. Public locations are the only way to go until you know enough about them.

  • I've talked with several women from CM. They are wonderful women and I hope to remain friends with them forever. Due to schedules it's just easier to write online but I have talked to them on the phone.
