FACE TO FACE
Have you ever met someone from the bloggosphere face to face?
My friend Matthew wrote to me once:
“Most of last year I enjoyed a wonderful love affair that began here in the bloggosphere. I was so awestruck by this person's creative instincts, intelligence and good looks. The written connection, facilitated by this medium and interface, became a spoken one.
The best aspect, prior to our first meeting in person, was how inspirational I found this person. She was rapidly becoming a "best friend." We tried the "video conference", but I don't think I'd do that again. It's too "jiggly".
The reason why some people do it before they agree to meet in person is that "the camera doesn't lie," and there are many who use past-dated photos of themselves during a time in their lives when they really did look wonderful and appealing.
We enjoyed sharing some travel and vacations that year. It might be presumptuous to think that every person whom one can meet "in person" from here in the bloggosphere could turn out to be a wonderful love affair.
So, there... that's my story of meeting people via blogging. Sometimes, like you have found too, it's a pleasant surprise where deep friendships can take root.”

The only people I have met from the Bloggosphere I knew before I got there. :-)
Hopefully that may change.

I was never involved with anyone, to the point of wanting to meet him personally.
But, my sister met and has been married for eight years with a guy she met on the Internet. So, love can happen or true friendship.

It's all a question of good-luck, coincidence and what we expect or not from the other person....
Personally, I have never had a bad experience. Just the contrary... so far... so good!
