nope.  dunno what gave you that idea.
The way that some members claim to almost intimately know you. Anyway, who on here would you like to meet? (asides Odeon  :P)

i talk a lot to various other members, via PM, email, IM and phone, variously.  some people here, i've known for years, and probably spoken with more online than most people i know in the flesh, as it were.
I am of the school that you dont really know someone until you meet them in real life, i can never really figure people out online as well as in real life. In real life its a struggle, online its almost impossible.

you're entitled to your opinion, based on your own experience, naturally.  i can work people out very quickly, both online and irl, but then i've been trained to do so, and seem to have a natural bent for it to start with.  empathy of a house brick, but very intuitive, and have studied people and their behaviour for decades.
How come you got trained to do so, did you study psychology or something in that area? People do fit models, but I dont like to treat people in such a fashion when dealing with them. I like to hope for some quirks.

yes.  and still do.

I'd like to meet a fair number of people IRL who are on this forum.  But, certainly not in a large group or in a busy, noisy place where I couldn't hear myself think.  A small group, 3 maybe 4 would be ok!

Those of you that I want to meet in real life are easily counted. No offense to anyone, but I don't like people. The vast majority of you are only electrons on my screen.
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

I feel the same way, Od.

No problem Odeon, the times that I actually want to meet people in a social situation are few and far between.  And I am not likely to initiate the meeting.  The one time I met an aspie from a forum was because she suggested it and lived nearby.  So my wife, daughter and myself went down to meet her.  She was 21 and had more in common with my daughter than she did with me, for obvious reasons. :laugh:  But, it was interesting meeting her parents.  Her father was definitely an aspie and a retired doctor!

But you're more than an electron to me, my dear -- you are a special electron.

I prefer meeting one person at a time for some reason. More than one seems to much for me. I'm just a follower when it comes to social gatherings and I do my own thing. I'm an NT if I'm with one person.

And you, you're several thousand special pixels.

You're an arrogant spod and you use hair conditioner.

Got the last one wrong, I am afraid P, just shampoo. As for me being an arrogant sod, on occasion, true. But not all the time.
