Are you going sometimes to WNDC?


I doubt it - couple of reasons. Work constraints is the major one, the other is I am not 100% sure about meeting people I chat to on-line. No offense intended to anyone here, but I don't know, I am a bit lost for words. I guess I can't get over the stigma attached to meeting people over the internet.

Sorry if that makes me an anti-social idiot, or a fool for not wanting to give it a chance. I enjoy the social interaction I have here & I kinda want to keep it the way it is. Does that make any sense?


désolé mon ami :cry:


If it makes sense to you, it makes sense, right? It's your life Baron...

All I can say is that I have even more fun offline with quite a few of those i 'met' here online.

But if you feel comfortable online, who are we to say you should meet us offline?

You don't have to be sorry, I can understand you.
Let's have a beer anyway, here's for you! Image

And if you ever change your mind, we'll have another one later!

Take care.

hey, i know how you feel. took me a long time chatting online before i got round to meeting anyone, and actually all my experiences have been good cos online is a good way to suss out people anyway before you meet.

so don't feel bad. it's nice to have you online. i also like this forum cos we get to 'socialise' in our bits and bites of free time. soooo convenient! :D

I'd say the spotlights on for Wind in my hair, and of course a fan blowing in her direction... :)

This thread is definitely not for me, how can I be nice? If I'd be nice, I wouldn't be Sapphire! :twisted:

P.S. It took quite a bit out of me to apologise to MorningGlory, enough for this year. :P
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.
