If you had the opportunity to meet other Flutherers would you? No matter where you are in the world?

Asked by Tink (8668points) June 8th, 2009

I would like to meet every single one of you guys. Would you like to meet them too or just some in particular?

No. Mystery is the spice of life (and I already know my greater family,)

I’d pay to watch Gailcalled and Blondesjon have a conversation in Finnish. :)

There’s a few I’d like to meet. I prefer those who live close to me, because then it’s easier to have a relationship. A conference might be fun, but I probably couldn’t get away for it.

No, meeting people online is creepy

Jude's avatar

There are few that I wouldn’t mind meeting.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

I would, for sure!

Not a chance. I prefer to think of you all as random letters on a screen, not actual human beings. :-P

I feel at ease with the current level of knowing one another. I wouldn’t elect to participate in a face to face meeting with other people on this site.

Divalicious's avatar

As Apuleius said, “Familiarity breeds contempt, while rarity wins admiration.”

I agree with gailcalled and dynamicduo.

Sure. Dozens of wisdm’ers met in person.

There are a few I would really love to meet and might even take a roadtrip if the opportunity presented itself. I’m visiting a friend in Oregon this summer and I know there are some jellies up there. We have talked about getting together!

I already met lefteh and delirium. After that experience, I’d rather not meet anyone else.

Just kidding. I know that someday I will end up meeting some more of my campfire friends. And I can’t wait! Fluthercon would be interesting but difficult to schedule and plan.

Yes. There are several people I’ve met from a previous site, a few of them I consider friends now rather than acquaintances, I am open to the same with some of the jellies. In fact, I’m excited to be going to hang out with a few jellies and others next week ;p

I would love to have a World Wide Gathering of Fluther. When I was provided transportation and a motel room for an award ceremony by another Q & A site (at their expense), and got to meet all the other users who were there, it was great fun. Most of the ones I met are still active on the blogs that we set up to keep in touch.

I’m afraid I have a previous engagement in Peru with a llama and some fireworks.

chyna's avatar

There are a couple I would like to meet, but as for a convention, I don’t think so. I would prefer to keep my fantasy of what I think certain people are like.

gailcalled's avatar

@Blondesjon: Sorry I missed the bus. Milo was busy ironing his serape.

Blondesjon's avatar

@gailcalled . . .That has got to ride up. I hope he’s fixed.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Yes, let’s have a Fluther convention or go on a Fluther cruise in the Caribbean. We’ll send pictures to those who don’t wish to meet the other Jellies in person.

shrubbery's avatar

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes! I’m planning to cross the globe next year to see some Flutherites, let’s have the convention then! :P

Aethelwine's avatar

I’ll bring the blonde family to Australia if you want to have one there. We’ve always wanted to visit!

shrubbery's avatar

Do do! I’m in Tasmania but if you can’t make it down here and are just on the mainland, I could fly over and meet you in Melbourne! haha. But don’t come any time soon. Melbourne have the most swine flu cases in the world I think. At least in terms of area.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

I second the Caribbean! Let’s take a cruise out of Galveston in March, MMMkaay?

El_Cadejo's avatar

Id like to meet people you all werent so damn far away. I may meet another flutherite at a music festival this summer though.

wundayatta's avatar

Me three for the Caribbean, so long as we end up here.

asmonet's avatar

I would love to, in fact I plan on it.

I’m more than a little disapppointed that some on this thread are so against it, as I would absolutely love a chance to meet them. They seem like amazing and challenging people.

Tink's avatar

Yeah I would like it
