    for the first time. I'm a shy person so umm :wtf: do ya do. This isn't a booty call by any means just a face to face with someone I've known online for fuck 3 years. I will be flying to meet them, and I plan on getting a motel and my own rental car (if needed).

    You will be really awkward and shy at the start. Once your over that part of it, it's just like talking to an old friend. You guys know each other well allready.

    Or you can meet at a bar or something, have a few drinks

    just remember that their online persona may not be their REAL persona.

    Yes, I'm glad you let him know Diesel. It happens so often. 9 Times out of 10 the person you think you know on the internet is not the same in person. This is just my experience. Don't have any expectations.

    Don't go in having huge expectations.
    Don't do anything you don't really want to do.
    Don't force it if you just don't feel anything.

    I'm also very shy -- it takes me a long time to warm up to anyone I meet. I've met a couple of my net friends in person and it was painfully awkward at first, but once I allowed myself to feel comfortable... it was great. The biggest obstacle for me was my own insecurity (I didn't want to disappoint). When I got over that, it was so much easier.

    It can be overwhelming at first to experience someone you inisist you *know* in a different, more complete(?) way. In my experience, when the anxiety and awkwardness starts to go away, it goes away quickly. Then it's just fun. It helps if the person you're meeting is more extroverted!

    I think getting your own motel and rental car is a smart idea -- especially if things fall through or you just don't hit it off. It can happen, it does happen. You've known this person for three years though, so I think that is far less likely.

    Hope it goes well!!

    Talk to them like you would talk to any old friend when you meet them. Meeting people online is only weird if you make it weird. Just try to remember that you've known this person for years so it's not like they are a total stranger.

    I agree with this. Talk on the phone so you can get their personality.

    people on OT are EXACTLY the same in real life. ok, maybe they mute their thoughts a little. But they are thinking it. Ask midgetized, she's crazy enough to meat a lot of OTers

    No real expectations, I just think it would be cool to meet him irl. Actually I might be able to meet a few more OT'ers then just him now that I think about it while I'm down there! :eek4:

    Sounds like you should be fine :) Just make a comment about how awkward it is or that you hope he doesn't need a keyboard in front of him to talk and take it from there :rofl:
