    Have you ever played an online game and talked to a person, only to find out they live down the street, or in the same city as you?

    Or maybe on a forum, or in a chatroom.

    I play guild wars and one of the members of my guild lives in j-ville, about 20 minutes from me. He probably lives down the street from my work.

    thats crazy. I cant say I've ever met anyone from the same place I'm from but I do know that I used to get excited when I'd meet people online that are from California. There was one instance I met a guy on call of duty 4, in fact I was in his clan, but he ended up being a mobile specialty mechanic so he'd travel all over California. He lived in San Jose but said on numerous occasions he'd pass through my town to pick up supplies from a warehouse around here.

    It was one of those things where we said we should get a beer sometime! but that never happened.....

    Yeah, before Gaia went to shit I talked to a couple of regs from the Music forums and come to find out one lived 15 minutes from me, so we hooked up for a jam session. The worst is when you do meet up and they're completely different. That's never happened to me, but I know someone that did happen to.

    Never happened to me.
    But then I've never really strongly befriended someone on a game or from a forum..

    There are some members on my PA gun forum that live in the same town. But that is to be expected since there are a shitload of members from all around the state. Chances of there being a few members in the same town as me are pretty high.

    I remember shooting some online pool and I played someone who lived in the next small town as me, about 10 minutes away.

    found two people that lived within driving distance of me in an IRC channel I frequented at one point in time.

    I have become 'close' with people online at one point in time from: ireland, sweden, scotland, egypt, and germany... all from the same forum lol. So I think its safe to say none of them live close at all. The closest person to me that I know really well is from north of england about 3 or so hours away.

    Same deal with me when I was on my Towns Hockey Teams Forums. We actually did do some meetups, saw eachother at games and sometimes outside of our hockey world.

    .... for me it ended in a not so great way lol.... kept me away from forums for a couple years thats for damn sure!
