    What do you think, what's the difference between meeting a stranger online and meeting a stranger in the real world? Thoughts?

    I saw a contest on this site: http://www.hivepals.com/ where you share funny horror stories about meeting people offline that you met online. I actually have a few good ones to share, but here's the best: I went to meet a guy – just as a friend cuz I was new in the area - and he turned out to be a cult leader auditioning followers. He took me to the Hare Krishna temple for charity food. He kept looking at me funny, I thought he was looking at my belly – when I asked him why he was looking at my waist so much he said he was trying to see if I had good birthing hips because he needed to repopulate the world. Maybe at least I can win an something for that one...

    Got any stories of your own?

    Sadly, no. -_-;

    I've yet to meet any of the myriad people's I've met online. Although, they all seem like they would be down to earth and normal. Maybe a little crazy, but then, aren't we all?
