If you don’t read the message board regularly, be sure to at least check the Meetup forum to see if other readers are meeting up in your neck of the woods. Several cities have already had informal get-togethers, including Chicago, where the photo above was snapped. Read what Addie Pray has to say about their evening:
I thought I’d use this public forum to also remind Chicagoans (and nearby Wisconsinites?) of our next Meetup on Saturday, March 3rd, at 1 pm at Lady Gregory’s, 5254 North Clark Street. I’ll be there! But more importantly … so will Wendy! Come and let’s shower her with love and adoration.
Yes, I will be there! No need to shower me with anything, but it would be lovely to meet some of you. Also, to anyone who is on the fence about attending a meetup because you’re afraid it will be awkward or weird or whatever, I’ll say this: I’ve met lots of internet pals in real life and I have never regretted it. Some people I’ve met from the internet have become my closest friends! Others have proven to simply be good connections. Seriously, you never know who might help you find your next job or next apartment or next … boyfriend. Connections are good to make. Friends are great to have. DearWendy readers are good people. Why not meet some of them if you have the chance?
