Have you met any moms in person from CM?

Just wondering how many of you have made real friends from CM, or the internet in general? I need to make some friends before i go completely stir crazy, but I'm kinda nervous about meeting people from online... I mean, i know that obviously, you would meet up in public before going to anyones house or inviting anyone to your home, but any other good precautions you can recommend? Maybe I just watch too much Law & Order, but I'm a little paranoid about people not being who they say they are!

(on another note, my mom actually met my step dad from an internet chatboard, and they have been happily married for 13 years! LOL)

  • I met a few that are in a playgroup and I have lost touch with most of them. I can't get to the play date across town on the specified date, so we just do our own thing now.

  • I met my best friend here on CafeMom. I actually flew out to see her last Feb. I also have a very good friend that I met when Chat rooms were first opened in Yahoo many many years ago. She has flown down several times to my place. Her and her husband have drove down a few times as well. I have met some people in real life that I did not keep up with as I felt they were not truthful about themselves..........

  • I actually met my husband on the internet and became friends for a year talking on the phone and stuff before meeting in person. I have also met women from cafemom, the few I did meet were wonderful lovely ladies and I have a few more that I would love to meet as well.

  • no I would like to meet some moms from my IFF group...they are awesome even the ones that I do not agree with are cool because we talk like adults! But no one lives in the Illinois area. I have met people online before though...
