On Line Family

Over the years I have gathered an on line family of stellar caliber. I have a mom, thebeaddoodler, a brother p1kef1sh, a son PhredWreck and numerous sisters formerlyknownassomecowgirl, theRealDawn, TLChimes, purplealabaster, theBohemianHeart....the list gets longer if I go to my Facebook friends. They are all people I care a lot about and have followed their daily lives, happy, sad, and other. I know some about their families and have even met several of them in real life. I will be meeting my brother p1key this October if all goes well. I'm very excited and I hope he isn't disappointed. He will be my first "foreign" on line meeting. I know many of us have online people that we consider as close, or sometimes closer, than family. It's just fun to play family with them and even more meaningful to know they really are important in my life. You know who you are, I love you...you should know.

You know that we love you, too, sweetie! I think it is fantastic that you are getting to meet P1key! I am sure that neither one of you will be disappointed ... how could you be? I have never met anybody from on here, but I have talked to some people in e-mail and over the phone. The closest I came to face-to-face meeting was when MysD was supposed to be on this side of the pond or when I was supposed to be in Lambie's general area, but neither happened.

People say you can't make online friends and have them be real friends. I disagree!

@1wldngl I also disagree also. Online friends can become real friends and I still communiate with some I have met.

I think that I've only met one person from here and that was our mutual friend the Pikefish, who gave me a fascinating personal tour of Salisbury Cathedral and, afterwards, we had a pleasant lunch in a pub. I am sure that you won't be disappointed when you meet him!

Having an online family is awesome! I don't know where I fit in on anyone's family tree - maybe the occasional cousin who visits, the oddball relative, the family pet? Maybe I'll be the little birdie or that nut in the tree!

I agree. It's really gratifying to have such a wonderful online family. Over these past few years, I too have a number of folks I got acquainted with online. Many of them have become not only good friends, but we are close like family. It's very nice what today's technologically can do for us.

We love you too. I never met my myLot friends. In the past I went to a party organized for people chatting on the same French IRC channel. I was not deceived by the persons I met and I spent a very good evening/night.

I come from a very small family, so my online family is vast, and from all over. I would miss it if I couldn't be online, and interact with myonline family. I will always be grateful for the friends I have made online, and I hope to make many more.

Blame it on the physical distance or even the different timezones, I have some people from around MyLot who have been close to my heart. Some of them are here on this discussion, some on Mylot and some others have not yet returned. Some others, I have lost contacts with them - but they have and always will have a special place in my heart.

That is correct. We do all have somewhat of an online family here and other sites we belong to. I have made many friends online from MyLot through the years and they followed along to other writing sites I also belong to. And also met more great friends on those sites.

You have a huge list of on line family members, where you have a twin sister, other sisters (across the world), brothers and of course friends and I noticed you have an on line 'son' also, who called you 'Mom' in this very discussion. It is nice to hear that you know them very well and care a lot about them as you would do for your real family members. Meeting a mylotter would really be an exciting and thrilling experience in itself. Hope your planned meeting with your brother p1key turns out to be a wonderful experience. I had no occasion to meet any mylotter. Although, some have become very good on line friends and we communicate through channels other than mylot. Sadly, most of them are not active in the newer version of mylot.
