Have you ever met an internet friend? Would you?
« on: May 01, 2015, 03:38:38 pm »
Figured this forum might want a new thread right now so, whoopdedoo.

Have you met one / want to meet one / planning on meeting one...
& did it go well?

I haven't myself, but my sister has. She flew all the way to Holland when she was 12/13 to stay at her online friends' house & it went fine.

I really want to meet at least one person from this forum in real life (Specifically, people with whom I chat everyday). I'm pretty sure that shenanigans would ensue and that it would be glorious

Same, I have a list of people fro this forum, who I'd love to meet IRL. And I truly plan on traveling when I'm old enough, so its a big possibility that someday I will meet at least a few of you.

Hmm not really, I like keeping my internet friends and IRL friends separate. That and I'd really rather not have people see what I'm actually like in person.

In the past two years I've actually been living on my own in a safe space where I actually CAN invite my internet friends over for a weekend, or even save up for a flight/take a drive to their place, and it's been so so incredible meeting all of my friends face-to-face after having been friends with them for 6+ years in some cases. My first IRL online friend experience was with a friend from FA (actually my girlfriend at the time) here and it was fun playing tourist-guide with someone who's never been to my city. Then I had my main squad all fly up together & we stayed in a hostel together for a convention last year, & a few weeks ago I took a trip down to them & got to stay at their house for 5 days for a con too ;____; between then I've had a couple friends stay with me or driven around to their houses, but I don't have many online friends within the same state x3

a really important reminder that I've been legally an adult while doing this, so I didn't need to get my parents involved & I'd known each of them for at LEAST 3 years each so I knew they were legit, but if any of you small children furries want to meet up with an online friend, please please make sure you do it in a public place and with your parents/a trusted guardian like an older sibling around. And make sure you've done a lot of stuff like video/voice called them in advance to get a feel for how they are IRL- a lot of people act differently over the safety of text vs IRL conversation.
We're in this new phase where everyone is very casual about their online lives & it's kind of laughed at/pushed into the backs of our minds, but be careful & play safe yall :[

Though I do have a knack for and preference of keeping my online and IRL friends separate there are a few people I wouldn't mind meeting but the idea of traveling all the way to them is rather daunting although some are only one state over that is still one heck of a long drive since plane tickets are far to expensive for my meager budget.

I will never stop being bitter over the fact that this is not going to happen for years...

Aww... This saddens me, but I can respect, and understand that.

I plan on meeting an online friend of mine sometime next year. Hopefully it won't be too hard since we both live in the Auckland area.
