People have used this forum to meet offline for almost as long as it's been around. Friendships have been forged, people have met each other for concerts and events, holidays have been had and so on. It can be fun to make new friends with common interests, and I'm sure we all know amazing people we first encountered online.

A recent posting by FlyingAnt in the McCartney section (which I've moved here) made us wonder if a thread for suggesting meet-ups would be useful.

We'd rather people use the private messaging system to contact each other, rather than making public arrangements. This thread is for people to suggest a meet-up to which others can respond privately, should they wish. It's fine to respond here asking for more info, but if you're going to make arrangements I'd suggest you use PMs.

Disclaimer: This site accepts no responsibility to anyone choosing to meet offline. These events are beyond our control, and we are not liable for anything that occurs.

The moderators will delete all personal information (emails, addresses) posted here.

Please do not do this if you are under 18.

Some good practice for making private arrangements:

  • Get a feel for someone by chatting and getting to know them before arranging to meet IRL.
  • Only disclose as much information (location, phone number, email address, photo etc) as you're comfortable with sharing.
  • Don't feel pressured into anything. It's fine to back out (both parties should be courteous and considerate).
  • If you do decide to meet, arrange to do it somewhere public the first time.
  • Tell a trusted friend or relative where you're going and with whom. Write down and give them specific details.
  • Keep your wits about you.

Please contact me or the moderators if any forum member behaves inappropriately, whether via PM, email, or any other means of non-public communication.

Disclaimer, again: This site accepts no responsibility to anyone choosing to meet offline. These events are beyond our control, and we are not liable for anything that occurs.

Shouldn't you be busy creating official invitations so we all can come to your wedding? I'm needing notice so i can get three months off work.

Who said anything about virtual, i want a proper invite to the actual ceremony along with a 3 month all paid all-inclusive stay in Australia. Wedding takes 20 minutes, quick toast to the bride and groom, a bite of a sausage roll and then its back to relaxing on the beach.

Do we have any south Florida Biblers? If so let's meet up for lunch or something!

Hey U, @pepperland! 

Wanna meet? I don't have plane ticket money to go far, but I think I can afford fare to Any Road Will Take You There. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Failing that, an inbox near you will have to suffice. ahdn_paul_01

I'd love to @Beatlebug, but Joe says:

  • Keep your wits about you.

and I don't have any wits, nevermind their being about my person...

I'd meet people offline,  but I'm an axe murderer in real life. 

If anyone here lives in or around Northern Illinois, I'd love to meet up and show you the axe collection in my basement. If it sounds like the door's locking behind you, that's just the wind.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Ooh! That's not right, @Necko. It's nothing to be embarrassed about though. We can help. Many of us have suffered similarly. There are ways you can be helped...

When I come visit you in your cosy sounding basement, I will bring...

Your house is a public place, @Necko? Is the basement the only place you can have any privacy?
