EN: Warning: This post is over two years old, so it's possible that the views, opinions, links or instructions reflected on it do not correspond with the way I think now or the way things currently work. I have evolved (and so have the World and the Internet), so it might be advisable to just take this entry for a glimpse into the (my) past. 🙂

ES: Atención: Este artículo tiene más de dos años de antigüedad, de modo que los puntos de vista, opiniones e instrucciones que se vierten en él pueden no corresponder con cómo pienso ahora o cómo funcionan las cosas en la actualidad. He evolucionado (y también lo han hecho el mundo e Internet), así que probablemente lo más recomendable sería entender esta entrada como un simple reflejo del (de mi) pasado. 🙂

I have just come from a meeting with one of Calítoe’s fans… I mean, it’s been in “earthly life” where we have met. HE seems to be a great fan of my .:.Calito(h)eces.:. (an indescriptible sort of blog I’ve got in Spanish) and since he is living right now in my area and was a bit bored… He asked me to have a coffee, which is what we ask here when you want to go out for a while.

Well, it’s obvious that I was a bit bored too 😉 If it had been yesterday I would say “no, thanks”, because my best (male) friend came to visit me at the country house and since he is going to study in Norway for a whole year, we try to see each other as much as we can these last days before his departure. In the afternoon some friends of my sister’s boyfriend came with us to the river, and in the evening I had that accordion rehearsal, but today was such a boring day that I wouldn’t mind accepting his invitation, and I even didn’t mind him to phone me about three times before meeting me 😀

Of course I had to make up a good story to tell my parents (that one of “I’m going to meet someone I know from the Internet” is not valid :P). Yes, I’m 24, but they are still being MY PARENTS, you know.

Well, the whole thing turned out to be quite… Interesting 😀 We’ve got a fair in Pontevedra these days and we where wandering round there and talking about six hundred million things. It’s been nice. I must confess that, in the beginning, I thought this guy was much crazier than I am, but now I think we are almost at the same level, that is: completely sane 😉 Anyway, I don’t recommend anyone to meet in “real life” someone you have just met in the Internet, I mean, I’ve made a lot of nice and good friends through the Internet, but when I’ve met them “in real life” it was after at least 6 months of “Internet relationship” with frequent e-mails and stuff.

Whatever, I’m glad that the whole thing has ended in such a good way 😉 He hasn’t tried to rape me or something, so I might meet him again 😀

By the way, now CollectaNtea.org and Collectanea.org (the last is the one you are visiting now) don’t share webspace anymore, and that means… More webspace for each domain 😀 I might open hosting again 😉 I’ll see…

  1. Very interesting.
    I’ve met quite a bunch of people in real life and there’s only one person I’m still in contact with and that I see every once in a while (at concerts ;)). Well, the experiences I’ve made go in completely different directions that I actually can see no plausible pattern on when to meet people from the Net and how close to get to them… it’s too strange.

    But I’m glad the meeting wasn’t a total complete mess… that’s what counts in the first place! 🙂


  2. Hola! You’ve met an online friend in real life? How cool! It happened to me once, too and it was okay. But I 100% understand what you mean about the parents 😀 Mine are like that, too.

  3. Hi there 🙂
    Yes, in fact this was not the first time I met an online friend, but this time was the first time I met someone to whom I hadn’t “spoken” much and whose webpage I didn’t know by heart 😀
    Incidentally, I’m looking forward to meet you one day… If you don’t mind to, of course! 😀
