Are there some people?

That just by their postings in BF, you know you could be really good friends with in real life?

Edited to add: Whom and why do you think that you would be a good match?

I have met several posters here in person and corresponded with others whom I consider true friends. Wordbiker, Couch, Pgoat, MV, Sixtyfiver all fall into that category, as does Cuda2k, Lotek and a few others like Siu, Stacey (R.I.P) and some that I must be forgetting, like EBoo.

UnsafeAlpine also. See, I wanted to respond, but didn't want to respond, because I know I am gonna leave a name off that list. Like Tom, he should be on my list too.

I've met many good people on this forum and another bike forum. Some of them have helped guide me through struggles and some have kept my spirits high with outright laughter. I consider these people personal friends and I rely on many of them to help me get through my days. I'm grateful for these forums and how they have helped enrich my life.

They really have to be shipped in the winter, unless you take a lot of precautions. In the meantime, she moved+gotMarried+hadKid. Well, maybe she didn't move, but it all happened in less than five minutes. I'm sure she was just distracted and forgot.
