So, is there anyone on here who has met up with one of their PC/Online friends? I was just curious if there's any stories like that.

I have a pretty weird one (Not PC Related). So there was actually a friend of mine in a community that I talked to a lot and I finally asked him where he lives. He said Jacksonville, Florida. And I was like "awmgnowaime2" And it turned out we lived in the same big neighborhood, so we ended up becoming great friends before he moved to California. :/ We still talk but it's not very frequent.

I have met the Brit crowd (Kura, Fabio, Drakow, Mr. Cat Dog) and I'm planning on visiting the UK again next year.

I also happen to be working just a few metres away from the place where a former PC member (zel) used to study back when he was around here XD Sadly I have no ways of contacting him anymore.

If any PC members happen to find themselves in Sydney, Australia then feel free to give me a shout so we can hang out! I think the local members (including myself) are too socially socially awkward to meet up with each other. I haven't met anyone from PC or another online source irl- yet.

I had two unconnected friends on my PSN, in a game of Battlefield they both end up in my squad, we start chatting about where we're from and it turns out my two friends lived in the same 10,000 person town and had probably seen each other before as strangers! What are the odds?

I haven't met anyone from PC yet, but I've met some people from other forums I was on.

It's a pretty cool thing. I didn't even expect it. It was a Firefly forum and I was at my college, just walking around and I saw someone on the site in the lounge. We realized who we were and had a little "HOLY CRAP" moment, it was great. We're still good friends.

If anyone's in Minnesota, gimme a call. The Mall of America is a huge destination for people when they visit.

Met Pinkie-Dawn last year. We both live in the same county and go to the same college. Because of our conflicting school schedules, we haven't had the chance to meet again since last Spring semester.

Me and quilzel had plans on actually meeting sometime before, but I need to settle down on my hectic life before I plan out a trip to Kansas to meet him. xD It'll eventually happen. I know it :D

That Brendino guy is from around here... :]

I've never met anyone else from PC, though. The closest encounter I've had to meeting someone from online, was joining a lobby on Call of Duty, and meeting (and becoming good friends with) a dude who was just a few cities over. That was pretty surreal.

No, but it would be great if someone here lives in the Philippines (Zeffy perhaps). If someone here lives in the same area as I am, I would like to meet him or her. It would be better in school! :)

I had a plan to meet Forever later this month but I'm not sure if that's still happening because I haven't heard from her, and I was planning to fly to New Zealand some time in the middle of the year and see Harlequin but I haven't been able to get him to speak to me since the third of December so I don't know if that's happening now either and I'm actually a little worried about him.

I haven't met anyone from PC in real life yet, but there could be a chance that eventually I could meet BinaryPeaches in a few months since we live about an hour away from each other.

Also, although I'm not sure if this is going to happen or not since it's still six months away, but I could possibly be meeting up with Aura Blackquill as well (along with BinaryPeaches) when MetroCon comes to Tampa.

Nope. Most of the people I talk to from PC are from different countries entirely and the few I have spoken to from Australia are from different parts of the country. I don't like travel much so I doubt I will ever meet anyone else from around here - but then again I don't give out much information online for the sake of being safe so perhaps there are people nearby me who just don't know it haha.

@007 - If I'm ever in Sydney I'll let you know haha

I haven't met anyone from PC in real life yet. This is mainly cause there's isn't really any Missouri or St.Louis members here. While there may be some, I don't know any to well. I also have no way of driving where to meet them and I'm sure my dad wouldn't be willing to especially if it's really far. I'm not gonna meet up with anyone I know from online if I don't know them well.

I haven't seen anybody from Maryland or at least somewhat adjacent. I have been noticing couple people from Virginia but they're all live down the south if I recall.

I've never met someone from PC, nor the internet in general. Me and Ace live in the same state, but haven't been able to connect yet due to busy schedules. Hopefully we can soon though. I'd love to meet some of you guys though, it would be fun!

I believe Towerizer lives in San Diego, which is about 2 hours from where I live, maybe the next time I plan on going back (and if both of our schedules are free), we could possibly meet. :D

I know other SoCal peeps that live near me as well (about 2-3 hours away tops).

Most people I interact with online live too far away from me to meet with, besides there's the added bonus of most people probably don't want to met me anyways.
