    I'm not talking about the regular HTF meets and stuff like that but to chat with someone of the opposite sex and agree to meet for a drink or whatever. I have one lined up for Thursday night in a town north of the city, needless to say THIS will be interesting. [​IMG]

    I met someone online 3 weeks ago and we have been talking every night for hours since then. We have pictures of each other and we've talked about everything. We are finally going to go out on Friday. Wish me luck [​IMG]

    Yeah.. one should always exchange pictures and politely check the timeframe when they were taken.. many a chatter doesn't move forward from pics of when they were 20 [​IMG]
    Be on time.. I didn't once .. pissed her off big time obviously [​IMG] but then I have better friendships with those I know I wouldn't have to meet face to face.

    To me the 'net is just about like anywhere else that you can meet people. If looks are important to you, be sure to get a recent photo. All too many people use photos from the past when they look better and just hope that you won't mind when you actually meet them.
    I've met three women on the net in the past 3 years, including my current girlfriend. So who knows what your luck will be. Just be yourself.

    I haven't done that in years. My experiences were always pretty bad. The only time it worked out was when I joined a softball team through a BBS and met a girl that way. We wound up dating pretty heavily for 5 months.

    Wow you folks have big salty _____s.
    I never have the nerve for this. When I first got online about 30 months ago I'd spend my time in chatrooms but I never got up the nerve to ask anybody.

    I've met a few girls, like the above statement---be ready for dissapointment but keep trying. About 10% I'd say are normal girls that you can click with.
    But some of them.....UGHGHGHHHH!!!!!
    Watch out.

    Interesting. The common theme- Don't give up. I'll take that advice. I'm meeting her at a lounge and she knows that I'll be wearing a red jacket. Perhaps I'll take it off so I can "check out the goods" first. Its a 1 1/2 hour drive to the town, the last time I went out of town for a date my car broke down and I ended up hitching a ride to keep the date. Desperate? ....nah [​IMG]

    About 4 or 5 years ago I was chatting with very sweet and sassy girl on a MSN game site. We showed up at he same tables and played card games. Soon the chatting turned to a sexual nature, and she sent me a private message that she wanted to meet me.
    Wearily, I met her at a restaurant that had a separate bar. I knew the Maitre d’ and I asked him to seat her when she came in and then let me know she was there. A little later when he came into the bar looking astounded and his jaw dropped open, I knew something was weird!
    So I stuck my head out of the bar and peered over at "her" table. Yikes! Heavy wood putty makeup, red wig, about six four, 290lbs. in a yellow dress, with a USMC tattoo on "her" forearm!
    I almost died...holy camoly brother! It was a frightening sight! I ran...and I never went back on MSN again.

    So...I take it Eric doesn't like redheads? Just tell her next time to wear a blonde wig...and shave.

    Wow Eric, "she" sounds like dream. It's too bad that I only date air force.
