I have met in person many of my online friends. People I work with are always saying things like "that's so coool!" and behind their hands saying, "I always knew she was strange." First time I met my online friends I had to call my parents to let them know I was okay...I was 46 years old!

I don't see much difference between pen pals and online friends, except we correspond more often. Naturally, we've all heard the horror stories about meeting online friends, but I think it takes common sense. Gosh, is it so hard to arrange a meeting in a public place and to not go alone?

Frankly, to the people who give me strange looks, I have to admit I'm glad they haven't tried to meet people online. They give the rest of us bad vibes!
