Hey everybody, On Tuesday the 10th Feb I spoke to one of my online friends (who I've 'known' for about 3 years from online), and we arranged to meet up in real life at their local train station in Derby UK and take a look round the place as I've not gone there before. I've seen tons of pictures, been on webcams with him (not giving name away for purposes of privacy) and heard him on microphone just once or twice. We started talking when he was almost 16 and I was 17 at the time, he is now nearly 19 in June and I'll be 21 this July. We have quite a lot in common and make each other laugh a lot, and I am looking forward to meeting him for the first time very much. I'll be meeting him on the 10th of March which ironically, is a Tuesday because of the leap year . I feel quite nervous too and excited at the same time, though I don't intend to get carried away as for all I know it could be disappointing; however hopefully it won't be. Just wondering if anyone has met up either thru here or msn, AIM etc? And what was it like? I've read numerous sites about it but I wanted to get a real perspective of it... I'd imagine that if you talk a hell of a lot it would be very surreal as you already feel like you've known them as they know a fair bit about you. Thanks for any responses I receive.
