Have you ever had online friends become real life friends?

I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently since I consider myself an adult now. I’ve made a reasonable amount of real life friends through playing World of Warcraft. It makes me question what made this possible. It is such a stew of variables that it is easy to overlook the key components.

I’m hoping this becomes a series of how people met through playing games online, and what it was like the first time they met in real life.

I’ve asked a friend (Sockety) to write a post about the first time he took a train to Chicago from Pippapasses, KY to meet WoW friends and myself. Hopefully he pulls through.

Have you ever made a real life friend through a video game? If the answer is YES and you’d like to write about it let us know! We’d be happy to share your story!
