Taking relationships from the web to real life

I woke up today and decided to try something new. I want to meet as many people from my online community in person as I can. The impetus? It already started to happen on it’s own. So far this year, I’ve met 5 or 6 people in person that I only knew online before. I really like being able to put a face, voice and body language behind an account.

There are a couple of other things behind this. I’ve lived in NYC for 2 years now, and have found it ridiculously hard to meet people who might become friends. I’m also kinda bad at getting out of my apartment, especially when it’s 90 degrees outside. It’s helpful to have the draw of company.

There’s some stuff to be examined here about taking web-only relationships to the real world. How does the relationship change? Positively or negatively? How much do people act in person the way they do online? How do my perceptions change, and how do the perceptions of others change?

If you want to have lunch, coffee, or just take a walk, I’m game!
