Re: Looking to make some more friends

Real friends are better than internet friends.

An old friends roommate turned out to be a massive Doctor Who fan. I would like some mindly geeky straight friends, I just have no clue where to meet them. It's not like we have comic cons around here.

Re: Looking to make some more friends

Real friends usually are better than internet friends, but I've become quite close with a few people who started off as the latter. There's nothing wrong with that in my book.

Pleased to meet you, lankyknight. I don't have the problem with friends knowing I like Trek too much because over the years I've weeded out the folks who have more drastically different takes on life than I do, although that's not to say differences are a bad thing. Indeed, they can spice things up quite a bit. I still have some friends who have either only seen the new movie or haven't even done that, and that's fine because we have other interests.

Around here, you'll obviously find some pals who share your enthusiasm for Star Trek, so enjoy your stay. We're all mostly harmless here.

I gotta ask. What makes you think the people you know in RL think you are a weirdo. Did they tell you that?

I guess I'm new. It's been long enough that most people wouldn't remember me. So, hi

Welcome. Always good to have more Brits on here. There's a few of us in the same sort of age group here; I'm 31 and like DS9, TOS & TNG. See you around.
