um, lots of people are ok with meeting up with people from message baords.
In fact I met my best riding buddy on this very forum. We sent a few PMs and hooked up to ride. We even carpooled. He came and picked me up from my house before we even met.
Neither of us ended up raped or in a ditch...however neither of came across as super creepy and looking for "bunnies" or whatever.
Yep. A while back I met up with 3 members from here. A few PMs, a couple text messages, and we met on-hill.
However it's possible they thought I was a dude based on my handle
OP: Like neednsnow said a few pages back - just go about it as a normal everyday life interaction and invite. Had you posted something like, "Going to be in the area, does anyone want to meet up?" it would have been so less creepy. If you hit it off with whatever chicks showed up THEN you could offer the full package.
