    Deepest Apologies

    I met someone in chat who lives very close to me. I have been asking her to meet with me in person. For me, that would be great. For her, makes her uncomfortable and does not wish to meet. Honestly, I am not a weird stalker, just social. I wonder how other's feel about meeting people you chat with daily? Truly, I don't mean to make anyone uneasy.

    I would like to meet the person - maybe at an inexpensive restaurant (separate checks) - so that if things didn't go well, one can always make up an excuse to leave early.

    But it may be that the other person has some sort of disability or something and feels weird being out in public? of that they can't afford to dress nicely? maybe the person isn't who/what you think he/she is?

    I think it would be enjoyable to meet someone you have "met" online, someone you have shared part of your day, your life with.

    I met a fellow QB'er about a year ago and we became very good quilt buddies until I moved. I was leery at first to meet also. We met at a very public restaurant and things just clicked. But, for some including me, it could be very worrysome. Maybe you can meet at a quilt show some time. If she is willing. Sorry it didn't work out. Hopefully she'll forgive and continue to be your cyber friend.

    I lost a long time email friend from Australia sort of like that. The fires there can be bad and she lost her home. I arranged for other quilters to help and two quilters took some items collected to her City and wanted to meet up with her to give them to her. She bolted. would not meet anyone from the Internet. We emailed for years but not after that. She got terribly upset with me. Live and learn. We all have our own problems, so I did learn not to do that again.

    I just came across this topic, I thought you might be interested. It may be a way to find and meet quilters in your area. Here's the link Missus Fear. Local QB Friendship Groups

    I did, just figured, less than 7 miles away. I just feel bad that I may have pushed.

    I actually got invited to go meet somebody from an email list once. She lived a good 4 hours from me but I went anyway. When I got there I called to let her know I was in town and didn't get any answer. So I went to a store and looked up her address in the phone book and found her house and left her a note telling her she shouldn't invite people to drive 4 hours to meet her and then ditch them. Never heard from her again.
