Have you ever met in real life penpals you had met on the Internet? Anything and everything

I've seen a bunch of them.
But, they weren't actually my penpal friends, not in all over the world, I didn't even know few of them. One of them was my penpal and is still. But this was an internetforum meeting, when bunch of people from the same forum (this time Risingshadow, a forum for Finnish fantasy and scifireaders, like me.) go to some city and meet.
I was thirteen. There were over 20 people. I knew only one of them well. It was pretty scary at first (I didn't tell my mum! xD) but then it was wonderful. Now I've been over ten meetings, thought all of them was from the same forum.

Thought I'd love to meet my penpals. As long as
A) They don't come over to my house (brrrh!)
😎 I've known them (sended mesages to them) over a year
C) They are the people they have told me they are (some people lie).

*shrug* Besides, my penpals live too far away from me. Even if did go to some country they live, there would be only a little chance to see them (if it wasn't arranged).

devil Way, I have also, talked with and met up with many friends all over the world.
I travel a lot, I am an international English teacher and I get invited to stay with friends all the time all over the world.
Yes you have to be careful, but hey if yuo don't take the risk you will never know and you wil always say "I wonder if"and I can honestly say I never want to say that so YEH I LOVE TO TRAVEL AND I LOVETO MEET NEW PEOPLE My kids are great, i.e. students, and them i get to meet their parents and from there I meet other people so GO FOR IT but BE WATCHFUL! angel
