    Does anyone else feel as though they have found friends for life on this forum? I have good friends gathered from army wives forums when hubby has been in afghan and iraq too and i have found that going through things like this brings you together with people and forms a bond that is hard to come by in every day life.

    I have heard mention in the past of 'forum mentality' but i truly believe i have found great friends on here. In particular Jays_Wifey who lives my exact life just a few miles away and a few years apart! We even have the same teddy bear! x x x

    I haven't on here, however, I have most of my best friends through a car club (forum) I am with. I was bridesmaid for one last year and she is my bridesmaid next year. She will also be asked to be my LOs god mother :D Met my DF through the same club so its pretty much worked for me :D

    I don't know anybody particularly well on here yet but I actually met my hubby on a cancer forum so I know how great forum friends can be!

    I hear you, I have three text buddies and they are great and defo friends I wanna keep. I even met two of them this Easter which was lovely. On a forum like this is think it's inevitable you connect with a few like minded people. It's not like facebook or anything which is far more risky. :hugs: to you all.

    i think i have yeah.
    admittedly everyone kinda views us septembryos as a bit mad- and thats prob true rofl.
    in our defence about 90 odd % are actually one of the same 2 star=signs which could have something do to with it??
    but yeah these mad ladies are there for me whenever i need them, and we all rally together pretty well.

    I think i might be too wierd for that, which is fine.

    I'm used to girls not finding me interesting as i've grown up with mostly boys around me. The usual girl topics arent in my interest either so i guess it's mutual:) I find that i don't think like a girl and very rarely feel like one.

    me and golcarlilly (tracey) met on a wedding forum in 2006, our weddings were 4-5weeks apart and we kept in touch via msn and facebook, and then realised that we were due babies 4-5weeks apart.

    there are a few others from wedding site that have turned into really good friends. not really got to know many ppl on here as well as i did the wedding site, dont know why.

    Lovely thread Army wife!

    I have met some lovely people on here especially the girls I met during my miscarriage last year, the girls on the BAW club thread and the fab Flumpy Bumps, I always think it is a shame we don't all live nearer to each other so we could meet up in the 'real world' aswell as cyber space!
