Most we met on the Internet, some we have solidified a great offline friendship with. Horror stories, yep we have a few, but most are totally ridiculous and funny!

· TIPS FOR SAFE POLY/SWINGING INTERNET DATING

· Meeting someone online and then arranging a date in a relatively short time can be dangerous. Take time to find out who this person really is. If someone is pressuring you to get together before you are ready, this is another warning sign. If anything feels strange as you get to know this person, then it is time to back away and look for another match.

· ALWAYS meet in a well lit, populated area that you are familiar with.

· ALWAYS leave the full name and any telephone numbers of your date with someone.

· ALWAYS drive your own vehicle and do not invite them back to your house after the first date.

· NEVER allow yourself to be picked up from your house. Giving your address out to a stranger is not safe. Arrange your own transportation so that you can leave if there is any sign of trouble.

· PAY ATTENTION to everything that this person has told you about him or herself. If you find out that your date has lied about anything, this is another red flag.

· SET THE CONDITIONS for your date and do not let the other person change them. Remember, you really do not know someone until you spend time with them in person.

· Be smart and be safe. Take control of your future. Know what you are getting into before you invest your Body , Heart, money , your life . Information is the key.

I'd like to ask what you mean by "your states forum?" Where is that? we are very new to this, have chatted and mailed many, met only a couple and really want to get going in this new lifestyle we've found out about. We are very social people, outgoing, drink socially, don't smoke but can toleratie some, though he is allergic to it, so, give me a hint and some help here, okay? we will appreciate it. oh, we are in illinois, nothern ill.

Georgia your a crack up, what she said was good advice. You just made it a little more funner.

we love the idea of posting greet and meets here. what better way to let everyone know from your area that there is a place to meet. we have just started doing that with our local yahoo group and now here as well.

one of the big reasons we joined this group was because of the number of people that live in our area on this site.

We agree with the idea of meets being held at bars and restaurants that have bars. it does relax people and we tried meeting at a other type of location but found that it was difficult because there were under 18 around. so thats why bar meets are better.

It is so important to take that step of moving from the net to the real world. If you don't your missing so many opportunities to meet people. Mark

oregonlovers - Aside from the bad comedy here - we'v had a few great experiences in new folks from the online world.

I've been meeting folks (of all types not just swingers) for around 10 years, and I was my gf's first person she meet from the 'net. (guess she liked me, we've been together for almost 4yrs).

Since then, we usually meet folks in a nice pub or dinner place that serves drinks. Only once have we ever meet someone in our home for initial contact. He lived in our neighborhood and is a professional, so we felt it ok - but we discussed it for some time.

Its not unusual for us to bring others back to our place on a first night, but before leaving the pub we inform everyone its for more socializing NOT necessarily sex. We feel we're pretty good at compatibility matching - if its not there, we do let whoever know.

We've also gone to a few of 'their' places afterwards and have never been disappointed.

A couple of 'security' rules that should be heeded:

1 - ALWAYS meet for the first time in a public location. 2 - Let some one know when you should be expected back. 3 - Be aware that no matter how comfortable you feel with some one online - you DO NOT know who they are in real life - stay alert. 4 - Do not drive straight home from a meeting, especially if it didnt go well. Go to a mall, see a movie, visit a friend - you get the point. 5 - Don't leave your drink unattended, even if there is 2 of you.

Aside from the above (sorry for the paranoidness), meeting folks from the internet is a great experience. I've been doing it for 10 years - and have never meet anyone that made me glad i subscribed to the above rules.

We actually meet over the internet, and we meet new folks all the time - but please put safety first, you may not have a second chance.

Be sure to post your bar meet in your states forum. We tried having some bar meets ourselves and they were going good, but then we moved and are now too far from any bar worth doing it at.

Now that the forums are more useful, I hope more meeting like this can help everyone out.

We started a group of our own. We meet once a month with other couples who's female is a bi. we have a blast at these things. we call them bar meets. Its so hard to meet people, the net makes it easier. but still its hard to move from chatting on the net and playing e-mail tag to meeting some one. Most people like to drink to break the ice, so meeting at bars helps allot. This month we will be meeting at a casino. We rented 2 rooms for people who live a little far and need a place to sleep. So what do you do to meet others in your area? How do you make the transaction from net friends to play mates? or real friends? Have any horror stories? Any good stories to share?
