When the board is not enough....

When the board is not enough....

Prompted by Blink's stalking of Tially thread!! (j/k Blinky!)

Do you ever feel that the contact you have with board members via the forums/pm/chat is not enough and do you swap telephone numbers with people on the board who you don't visit, just to enhance your board experience?

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

I like meeting new people and so I tend to go to the meets as and when I can make them.

However, that said, I wouldn't give my phone number to just anyone or even my e-mail for that matter and I don't share everything about me...although my heart is often on my sleeve there is still stuff that I will never say here.

I think I would be just as happy around here if I hadn't met anyone as I am now that I have.

No.

This is what I like about here....take it or leave it when you want.

I have swopped numbers with a few out of necessity - needed to know where Coastie lived and thought it would be polite to ring her before I turned up on her door step.

I hate the friggin phone anyway, you can't just put it down like you can switch off here.

Just here suits me fine.

Noone on here knows my home number (I dont know it myself !!!).

Only one person here has my mobile number - and thats Groucho.

I hate talking on the phone, so i wouldnt like people to call me of an evening when its my family time.

I would rather come on here to 'chat' when i feel like it.

Anti social - moi :unsure:

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

Like Bonny, I enjoy being able to come on the board for a natter, but I like being able to switch off whenever I want. The board and its members only interupts my every day life if I want it to and then only for as long as I want it to. Sorry that sounds so selfish.

Sometimes I find it hard to give online friends the sort of dedication they deserve (apologies if I owe anyone an email - I'm hopeless), and I'm not much better in RL, so probably best that it stays that way Smile

Several people have my phone number, but I only gave it because I knew they wouldn't abuse it. Similarly I have a few numbers and would only use them if/when a meet was planned.
