Have you met another myLotian in person? Would you?

Is there anybody here who have actually met anybody from here? I am talking about meeting people as friends or could be more than that since we somehow get to know each other from each other's posts. I am just curious since I met my husband on myspace (yep I am proud of it)and there people really admit that they're there to meet other people...but how about here? Are you willing to actually meet anyone from here, anyone from your friends list? Thanks for your response!

Well, besides two of my friends who are mylotians as well, I haven't met others. I might not want to meet other mylotians for security reasons. It's enough for me to talk to them through mylot and exchange point of views here than in person.

Thanks for the response. I agree with the security reasons.

Good post! I didn't meet anyone of MyLot but I suppose it can happen. I like to meet someone fo my MyLot's friends in the true life. I have one or two friends (taht I don't know) that are not too far from my city. It can be funny. Maybe I'll ask them what they think about.

I haven't met anyone yet here in myLot. For other reasons excluding dating, I would really like to meet those members who just live nearby. It would be a nice experience to see them in person and be able to talk about anything just like what we do here in myLot. Sometimes, when a person responds often on your topics, you feel like he'she is already a friend so it would be great to thank them personally.

I met my fiance on facebook (kinda like myspace lol)! I would definately meet someone if they were very nice and lived around where I do. I think I have good judgement on how a person is from talking to them online.

Thanks for the response! Wow now I know I am not alone with the whole meeting your special online on a forum based site. I agree with you, as long as they're nice and for real I think I would go for it as well, but I think I'll bring my hubby for security reasons.

Yeah I have, my fiancé and I (who is also a myLotian) actually met a couple of fellow myLotians today, it was nice to put faces to names and actually have the opportunity to talk to them in person. This is not a first for us as we have several friends that we mainly have contact through the internet but also visit and come visit us and others that we meet up with from online forums every few months.

Thanks for the response! That's really nice to hear. If I was given the chance, I think I would also try to meet the ones who constantly reply to my posts (I feel like I know them somehow).

There's actually a user on here that I've become friendly with that lives near me that I wouldn't mind meeting in person. We seem to have a lot in common and are around the same age. I wouldn't make any overtures or anything, but if we ran into each other or something, I'd have no problems with it. I've met people from online in real before and made some amazing, long lasting friendships.

Thanks for the response. That's really nice..especially the fact that you guys live near each other..you're right..maybe one day you'll just bump into each other and who knows something might be waiting for you guys. Goodluck!

I haven't been here for more than 10 days, so it's a little early for that! But I have met lots of other people from other sites over the years, so I don't see why myLot would be any different. If you come across someone with whom you really get along well-- and it turns out your paths could reasonably meet somewhere-- I see no reason to not get together. I know some people operate under the belief that people online are not "real," but I have never followed that approach.

Thanks for the response. LOL 10 days...that's really too early to tell! I just became curious though since mylot has a lot of members also people are sending friends request here and there....it made me curious if there are people here who actually somehow get connected with the other users. I agree with that....some assume that since they can't see who's behind the keyboard then they think that this person is a bot or pretending to be someone.
