Have you met anyone from this site?
I have met 2 people that I would consider acquaintances.
I keep hoping to make some friends and dream of romance through the site but so far no luck.
How about you?
I chatted with a lot of nice people, and on June 1 met the love of my life on this site. I had said "okay, I'm fine being alone, making friends, and being a crazy cat lady." Then.... there he was. Almost literally - the moment I stopped looking and caring - the magic happened.
Distance is the main issue...
There are about 30 people I can think of right off the bat... that I would love to meet.
5 or 6 that I would dearly love to meet for a beer or glass of wine or lunch or dinner.
There are some truly wonderful human beings on this site...but it is only distance that prevents us from embracing them as tangible friends.
I wish this community was a village somewhere..and we could talk instead of typing..but there you are...
I have met 2 people from this site. One was local and we became friends and would hang out from time to time and the other lived 1,555 miles away. We had a long distance relationship, hit it off romantically, met and had chemisty and now we are moving in together next week. It is possible.
Only once so far. She's a nice lady who is local. Our visit was meeting for a quick lunch. She's well equipped in intellect department which I love. Our interests and outlooks have a bit of overlap but not a great deal.
I've a lot of women friends who are pleasant and who I can call for a date/event etc. Not many with shared interests at the passion level though.
Hope for this site is finding deeper friendship compatibility that might or might not go further.
Many of the women here are 'lookers' too. I'm admittedly a strange man. It takes more than a woman looking good and being willing. Sex seems to always become 'entangling' and I'd rather pass than get entangled with somebody who doesn't share other passions, mutual admiration, respect and selfless trust.
Seeing the number of ladies complaining about sex weirdos on this site is really disappointing to me. I have always thought of the atheist community as consisting of reasonably intellectual individuals who try to distance themselves from the stereotypical bullshit behavior they witness on a regular basis in society. I'm not saying that atheists can't be perverts, but I expected much more from my community. I'd love to think that most of the perverts are new members who have registered for the sole purpose of hitting on women and might not even be atheists in the first place, but that's not for me to say.
Went on one date with one person. There was nothing there.
Been talking to someone else on the phone and on line for over a month now. We're really hitting it off. Unfortunately, she lives 450 miles away, but we are making plans to meet soon. And often. Who knows, maybe a move is in my future?
Yes, I've met 5 people. None local to me. Both male and female friends. Might meet one or two more on my trip from Texas to Nevada in a few weeks. There are now more people in Nevada than when I left so maybe when I get back there some of us can get together. I'm taking a break from looking for romance right now but ultimately that's my goal.
Even though I put down open to meeting women I think the chances of finding somebody at my age that would actually fit in with my life is probably pretty rare so I just enjoy talking with other people and if it happens it happens if not I'll be okay but on the upside here recently I've seen a couple of different people say that they found someone on this site and that it seems to be working out so you know Hope Springs Eternal
