FACE TO FACE





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.”

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  13. Hmmm..... Camera don`t lie ? ?
    your "friend" is a really smart "guy" :-)

    but ...how if "she" does not have legs ?
    and the most importantly...
    whether the camera can read the heart ?

    and whether there is a law that requires
    someone must marry at the first meeting ?

    My tips : i think is better to let "her" come,

    while your "friend" is HIDING
    and carrying a latest TELESCOPE !
    watch "her" one by one until "her" eyelashes.
    if deemed suitable, ...then "he" came out
    if "she" is not the same, ...go home !
    and report "her" to FBI or CIA :-))

    anyway thank you for funny sharing, dear sister !
    It`s very useful :-))
