Oh gosh... my luck would be I would end up meeting some loon too! I'm not too worried about finding any people local to me lol. 

Quoting AJ-47:

I'd originally joined CafeMom in January 2008. Saw an ad on myspace, thought it'd be a good place to make friends (online and/or off). My Son was about 7 months old, and I was a SAHM who didn't know anyone where I lived. Unfortunately, the one person I did meet (in person) turned out to be the ultimate loon, so I didn't try that again for a long time. I've since made a wonderful real life friend (met her on CM over two years ago), who recently invited my Son and I to come visit (she's about two hours away).

A long time... lol... I was on babycenter and saw an ad for CM. I was a new adoptive mom and looking for more moms to interact with online since I was pretty isolated due to attachment issues. I think it was fall of 07'.

lol, fortunately she was just one loon out of the three CMs I've met in person..but she was also the worst experience I've ever had with physically meeting online friends (and I've physically met A LOT of people from online). I actually met another mom in between Loon and the one that lives two hours away; she lives here in my town, and my Family and hers went trick-or-treating together the first time we met in person. It was great, but we eventually stopped talking. She kept inviting Us over at the last minute and we kept declining because we'd already had plans..so I guess things just fizzled after that - which sucks, as her youngest daughter and my Son hit it off. But I've had lots of good experiences from meeting online folks..the best being my husband! =]

I have been a member since Jan. 2008, I seen it avertised on a site I was on and took a look at it, and it seem like something i would like. At first i found a few groups and tried it out, and there was so much drama, so I took a little break, and then came back and founds some great groups that have some ladies that I can relate to, and have made several good friends.... I also then got hooked on siggies... they are addicting.... so started making them, a great stress reliever for me.... I also lost my daughter and grandson in a car accident and the support and prayers from some great ladies have been a blessing for me... So Love Cafemom
