So many people know other users so well online but how many have actually met and established a good friendship? Its one thing to SAY and be someone online but literal interaction can be another thing. Any opinions?
I've also had the honor of meeting about 10 people from CC, one of whom came to stay with me for a week after knowing her on CC for about 5 years.
Not only did we have an amazing time, but she commented to me one day about how much of an immediate trust/comfort level that we had right off the bat. I went into the bathroom one day to do some cleaning and she pointed out that she didn't think twice about the tray of belongings she had on the counter, including some money.
Likewise, I didn't even think about the fact that I had left my bag--and all of its contents--on the living room floor without even blinking. At the very least, she could have gone through my bag, but that's just not the type of person she is at all and I knew there was nothing to worry about.
The next time we meet, it's going to be my turn to visit her, and I'm hoping to be able to stop in say hi to a few more CC'ers along the way.
Admittedly, it takes a bit of planning, saving, and prayer, but it's totally worth it and I would love to meet most any CC'er I have regular interactions with here on the forum.
