    On An Online Game

    I met the man who is now one of my best friends in an online game chat. He and I started talking, and eventually we became good friends. I, living in West Virginia (the state, not the region) and him in Tennessee, we we're able to meet up at a music festival in Pennsylvania...

    When Plans Made At The Last Minute Turn Out To Be Memories You'll Never Forget...

    I'm the kind of person you'd never expect this from. I don't trust people easily, I'm pessimistic, I hardly take risks... so to say it shocked my friends when I told them I'd met an internet friend in person would be an understatement. I knew him for a year before I finally met...

    My childhood was spent hacking on a keyboard. My first g/f was in another state. We talked online every day for years, one day she convinced her parents to come to my state on vacation. I finally met her and got to spend all day talking and holding her hand. It was awesome. Years...

    The Panther

    We met on EP, much to my surprise. When she visited I wondered if somehow there was a reason that the two of us met, there was a magnetism that we shared; it couldn't have been just a coincidence.. could it? The few days we spent together were surprisingly short and we...

    Meeting people is hard these days. It's alot easier to meet people on the internet, especially when you can already see that you have the same interests and hobbies. I know it's risky, but I have found that it's just as risky as meeting people in real life. So I've met a few...

    Some Are Good, Some Not So Good.

    I met my soulmate from the internet.  We were together for 10 years, until he died.  I met a few other people, who have turned out to be a disappointment to me.  They have been pushy, and out for only physical gratification, not the friendship I was looking for too.

    after chatting online for a while. We clicked right away! When you can talk about religion, politics, and sex in the first five minutes and still like each other, that tends to be a good sign. Also, I really loved how open-minded and non-judgmental she was. I am super happy and...
