The idea of chess.com meet and greets intrigues me because I'm obsessed with social behavior. My question is, are there others on this site that have made "real life" friends through their chess.com connections? How did the conversation about meeting up come about? Did you simply meet for coffee and a chess game or did you spend some time with them? What was the outcome? Were they as you imagined them or was it a disaster? Was it a meeting between friends or was there some sort of deeper connection?
Its been easy and fun, with a meet up game at a beach or park. Outcomes have been 2 long term friends and 1 person meet once and dropped off planet.
It is completely WONDERFUL that the two of you that obviously were a connection actually had such the opportunity to spend some time together.
And I sure hope that those that experience such a connection as you guys, receive the wonderful moment, possibly the two become the one, and start their lives never apart again!
Yes, I know that's coming rather "uhwa" huhu =p to many, but I do believe in Love at first sight, being I actually know all that truly is right IS Love, and the separation of those to not recall this is because of our development throughout our experienced Lives here on Earth. lol now I sound as if I came from Planet Loveness =p, yet, deep down we all know that the only thing that matters is Love. =]
Well, Chess-date-com, has been a Disney-World of excitement for many! I met one of my first moderator-warnings here. I've gone for long walks with my losses. I've even had a few drinks with people here. But, once my electricity goes out, it seems like I don't see anyone from Chess-date-com...
I have not met many but I have met one guy who later became by boyfriend (we are now split up but the greatest of friends)
We met up in Manchester had lunch and a coffee and had a fantastic time :)
However I must warn so many people from this site are not who they appear to be.
I've met one other former member of this site in person on a couple of occasions -- typically for beer and chess, and despite their no longer being a member here (or at least an active member here) I do still correspond with them from time to time.
I would have to agree with that which is why I tend to keep my distance from most people here.
We build up an image of people on a site like this but its all just a smoke screen as to who they actually are ...
Oh c'mon! At least admit I'm beautiful!
THAT is a classic example ... myself, FigmentsMagic and HER was gonna meet up for coffee but she refused to meet us ... me and Figments met up, had coffee, lunch and a great afternoon together but SHE ... well can't imagine why she wouldn't agree to meet us
One day we will all know one another, that we are Family, and ever have been, and ever only could be.
Captivity of understanding our true being, the image and likeness of God, when growing in this abidance, shall be only reality, erasing every false foundation, including time and a division of a day, known as night.
Chaos will not be a word, nor any invented concepts of erroneous influences it's manifestation, diminishing any lie ever thought of, even the word "lie".
OMG! That's that one girl who was SA of ChessMistresses! I think there's some gossip about all that, Goldendog
YES and one of the biggest fakes this site has EVER known ... she spoonfed all her BULL**** to too many people
LOL, you are just too funny, trysts!
Its why I love my mobile ... at least if my laptop doesn't work I can use my phone
Oh, this was a while ago, but when she became ill, and had to leave Chess.com, one of the mistressess conjectured about her not being who she said she was. Then, some little girl, I believe, who was supposed to be her daughter started posting in the group pages about her mommy's "condition". I thought it was all just kind of strange internet stuff
No comment its just not worth it
I built up an image of someone not long after I got to the site, being a little naive about things, but I got wise to the game rather quickly.
It's recalling one another.
You two actually have always known each other
we all have
The fellow chess player I met represented themselves very well as did I. It was as if we'd known each other for years.
Meeting people from the internet is NOT something that I would recommend in most cases, but I decided to take a chance on this one person. I'm glad that I did.
Oh I am not sayingthat all people on the internet are bad nor am I saying they are all fakes I know a few people who I have met from online that are amazing people but generally speaking you really don't know who they are and sometimes its too late
Alright, who spiked the kool-aid?
