If you knew MOST of the Moms on this site in person would you hangout with them??

I say probably 60% in my opinion I wouldn't. I know we all disagree most of the time but some views of most I just don't understand. I have read so many post that appalle me to say the least. Like the ones about smoking pot, the ones that let their baby CIO for up to 30 min at a time, the ones that send their kids to daycare when they're a SAHM, the ones who didn't at LEAST try to BF, or the ones who favor one child over the other, gosh I could go on all day. I know some things might work for some and other things might work for others but some of the things I am talking about are so extreme in my opinion. So what's your thought how many of you would feel comfortable hangout with some of the Moms on here or leaving your child with them on a play date????

  • i'd only be leary of the ones with giant question marks painted on their faces :P however, the relationships i've built in groups mean the world to me. i would be elated to know those women in real life.

  • there are groups on here for probably almost every city in the nation, and even other countries. i am in one said local group. i have been over to houses, out to eat dinner, playdates, meetups at the mall, whatnot. its nice to have moms in the area, especially if they either have boys or have kids either gender the same age as my son. but no, just because i know them doesnt mean i'd hang out with them. its a choice.

  • I would not mind hanging out with some of them, no one is perfect. I just would choose my friends wisely.

  • Not the ones who post all the sex questions. That "quilty by association" things scares me. You know, if you hang with a perv, you must be one.

  • Chances are the moms you know in real life do the same things the people on here do. You just don't know about it. There's a feeling of anonymity on CM, for me, anyway. I'd more likely share something here that I would with a mother at one of the kids activities. And I consider many of the mothers there friends. Not great friends, but we have each others numbers and get along well. I don't know every detail of their lives, though.... and they don't know mine.

  • Depends - I think the few groups that I belong to I would love to hang out with those members -we already have so much in common. There are some ladies on the more up beat answer sections that I wouldn't mind kickin it with but I'd probably stay away from most of the women over in the P&CE section of answers. They seem bitter and unhappy.
