    Hi everyone,

    I'm just wondering if anyone of you here on this message board have ever taken your friendships outside of the board and continued a relationship in person?

    No one ever seems to live near me!

    ... for the housebound. I'm too weak to have visitors even, or do many e-mails or talk on the phone. Lucky I don't live alone, or I would never see another human being.

    I know the message board has a lot of rules but I would put my e-mail address on if is o.k.I have notebooked all the people around me, the closest is about 1 to 2 hours away.I would still travel to visit some one on the board to create a new friendship.I just didn't want to post anything that would cause a problem.Anyone else have a suggestion?

    on some other boards you can send a private message if you agreed to make your email available to board members. I made two new friends that way, although we're spread over the country. That option is not available on this board, however.

    whom I email and I guess they live about 45 minutes away from me in different directions. One left their email up accidently not knowing it was against the rules and I wrote it down. Then another person contacted her and I'll hear from her too.

    None of us have met yet. I don't drive that far by myself anymore and I guess they don't either.

    Now I know that one isn't allowed to put their email addy on the board, but you are allowed to exchange it in a private chat room here. I've never been in chat before because I have a hard time keeping up with the typing.

    I would like to meet both of my email friends one day, though. Certainly have hopes of that.

    Hugs,

    I have met a couple of ladies on here at our Dr office at the FFC in Atlanta. I have some of their email addresses and it is really nice. It is so great to actually meet these wonderful people in person and get to chat privately too.
