Have You Met Any Of Your Online Friends?

It seems like a lot of us have made pretty good friends on Cm. I have a few  really good online friends on CM and also on a Facebook group that I belong to. Anyway, some of the ladies from my FB group want to plan a get-together for next year sometime. I've never met any of my online friends in person before and I'm wondering if  it will be weird and change how the freindships somehow.

Have you met any of your online friends? And if so, are you glad you did?

Yes, I have.
I met another nanny thru a facebook group for nannies. We've known each other online for probably seven or eight years!
Her family passed thru my town on a vacation a couple years ago and dropped her off for an hour while they ate.
It was so nice to talk in person

That sounds perfect. Not too much pressure, just an hour. lol Did it seem weird to be looking at her while talking? lol And to hear her voice? It's strange how you can kind of fill in the blanks with your imagination. Like what someone's mannerisms, or voice might be like.

No...but I wish I could. Some of us text each other, but we haven't been able to get together.

It was odd and natural at the same time. An hour was not long enough!
I knew what she sounded like from talking on the phone

Are they close enough to do it? This groups is spread out all over the country and  the person putting it together is trying to figure out a place Waaaayyyyy out of the way, so we would all have to travel.  Everyone has to make a real effort to make it.  I'm looking forward to hearing what she comes up with and will do it as long as I don't have to leave the country. lol

yeah...we haven't talked on the phone yet. That'll probably make me feel a little more relaxed about it.
