So you are going to meet your myLot friend for the first time. You've both decided on a nice location approximately halfway between your location and theirs. Where would you end up meeting? What would you want to do with your new friend? What would you want to see? What would your travel guide and agenda look like? Be creative. lol

It would depend on wo I was meeting and how much time we would be spending together. I would be more interested in meeting them rather than the location but hopefully we would have enough time together to be able to do both. If we were meeting midway then possibly neither of us would have seen the place where we meet up so hopefully it would be a long meet-up and we could get to know each other better and visit the area too. I can't swim so if you and me meet up it will either be on a cruise or one of us will have to travel further than the other one - but I will be over on your side of the map sooner or later

Hm, well maybe there's a nice Caribbean island somewhere that is approximately halfway.

I suppose it would depend on which friend it was. Maybe we could go and get a tattoo, go wall climbing, walk along a beach or splash in some puddles.I think an Italian restaurant could be on the cards - definitely no fast food burger stuff! They'd need to be able to conga & we'd have to have a laugh or we wouldn't be meeting again

Since i don't travel would hope they come to my fair little town.That would be great. I'd want to just sit & talk at first & get to know them . I would cook them someting good to eat. I would show them what sites there are to see around here. I think it would be great fun to meet my mylot friends.

Besides, halfway is probably in the middle of the ocean somewhere!

Hey dawn! I have no idea what I would do! I guess it would definitely depend on which mylot friend and what they wanted to do or see! My city isn't famous for anything or has any great sites so I guess we'd probably head downtown to the "Big Apple"! And for sure we would need a guide because I haven't been downtown in quite a few years and everytime I do go I get totally confused and lost! I've invited some mylotters to stop by and I'm just waiting for someone to accept! All my mylot friends are always welcome!

No halfway place where you could meet somebody? Or are you not into traveling?

Why we'd meet at Petsmart, of course! LOL We'd play with the kitties that are up for adoption, but not actually get any no matter how tempting it is. How is that for creative? LOL

hi dawnald I would take her to Newport Beach ca as she is already in Ca but this is half way and get her to eat frozen chocolate covered bananas then we would walk out on the pier and watch the container ships steaming off for ports unknown, and we would walk along the beach ,gather sea shells and when we got hungry I would have to put my heavy orthopedic shoes on with the lousy brace then we would walk overto the the world known charlies chili and have whatever she wanted plus his famous chili for me we might end up having to take some of it home, as the portions are huge.I would point out the seals and the pelicans out on the jetty. we might get some marshmallows and weiners and some sticks then we would use a fire ring and have a campfire for our supper then it would be time to head back to Gold Crest. I am partly handicapped so cannot do tons of walking but I could show her all the things I fell in love with when I first came here before all hell broke loose and prices went out of this world. and then we could sit in the visitors lounge a nd just talk as we would have a zillion things to talk about. not too creative but I am physically limited.

Let's see . . . there are tons of skating rinks between your location and mine . . . but I promise you if came out closer this way you'd be able to see some of the biggies in practice . . . like Evan or Mirai and some others. We could watch them, and skate ourselves before and after (and have your brownies before and after)! Depending on what part of the year, we can catch Stars on Ice (or maybe some cornball Disney on Ice show)!!!! But this is because I know you have an interest in skating . . . I know a lot of other folk could care less about it!! If we were really adventurous, maybe we can fly over to some place like Lake Placid!!

Some of the myLot friends I would like to meet here are hockey buds. So, if we did ever meet is when our teams meet in the playoffs. It wouldn't be half-way, because it would always going to be one's home-ice advantage. I'm sure there is going to be a friendly wager during the game. Maybe each other's first born!

And if neither team is in the playoffs? Meet in a neutral city? Or don't bother?

Hi dawn, When I first met our mylot friend Mr, Fishy, we met him in our local pub, I didn't go alone so I took another mylot friend whom I know from childhood, well when we met him it felt as thoug we've known him for a long time, so it is good idea to meet in a public place. Tanara

Any PLACE in particular that you'd like to meet? Like maybe a place more or less halfway between you and one of the friends you are thinking of?

I would love to meet just about any of my Mylot friends. I have met one. I have a friend on both MyLot and Gather, more on Gather, that I hope to meet tomorrow, as she is only about a half hour from where I live. I have several friends that live in Oklahoma, and I have told one that I definitely plan to come meet her when I go south again. She is a real sweetie, and I could be her crazy Aunt.

well.if you like to meet each other ,distance is not gonna be a problem. and i think meeting up people from internet always happens between diffierent genders which definitely will make them exciting to meet. you don;t have to think too much about how to end up meeting since you talked a lot on net already and knew each other in some how.just do it naturally and you will find things that you both like. be ready for the wonderful trip wome some stranger you like.

Okay I am going to pretend there is a particular friend I'd want to meet. I stink at geography though so let's just say we'd meet in the Atlantic Ocean. We'd probably go boating for awhile, water skiing etc. Hmm, We'd then go to the nearest place and shop! Yea I really have no idea. I'd like to go to texas? What would I do there? LOTS!

If it's the middle of the Atlantic, I guess you could always take a cruise.
