I thought this would be quite interesting - to see who have met people off of the forum and as to how strong/lasting friendships have been made etc. If you haven't met people off of the forum - who would you like to meet? In no way am I encouraging someone to jump on a plane to go meet someone they've spoken barely two words to. And, if you are planning on meeting someone for the first time, no matter how nice or real you think they are, it's always better to stick to the generic rules of meeting people online in real life: Keep in mind that the person you are meeting may not be the person you think they are. And in accordance with that: Never arrange to meet an Internet friend alone. If you must meet them do so in a very public and neutral place (like a mall/food court/shopping centre) Bring along a few friends and tell an adult. (Ideally this adult will also go with you even if they hang back and don’t actually appear to be with you - to save the embarrassment factor) However, if you don't want an adult/guardian with you, and you are of a sensible age - make sure you have a form of contact with you - preferably a mobile/cell phone that has battery/phone credit and so on. (For more generic information on 'meeting people online' use a search engine such as Google and type in 'meeting people online in real life safety tips' and read up on information.) Or just click here or here. So, now that's over and done with - who've you met and who would you like to meet? Who I've Met: Juliet, Vicki (RIOT!), Rach (Green_Pixie), Kirstyyy, two other minor members who haven't posted quite frequently and I'm meeting Ems on Saturday. Who I'd Like To Meet (in no particular order); Shaz, Kelly, Jo, Nicki, Serg, Lyndsey, Ash, Sophfee, Lenore, Nurul, Jenn, Alesha and Kate You?
