Gee.. nobody wants to meet little 'ol me...
Hey.... considered this is a blessing.
Thanks Buddha and Golden Calf, I am not in anyone's list. Can you imgine the pressure this will bring? One needs to lose some wt, have face lift, get a liposuction and study the whole encyclopedia. ....LOL
This reminds me of "Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt"
I am with the old school and respect others privacy. I will simply write to the person I would like to meet in a PM. Ask him or her politely and state my objective to meet so s/he can make an informed decision if they are willing to meet with me. In today's internet age, no reply means not interested. I will move on and not to talk about it.
I certainly would not brag about how many sailors, sailnetees, famous celebrities that i I have met, nor I will brag about how many boat cards I have collected. Likewise, I don't disclose any conversation either except when I have the permission to do so. My father instilled this in my head long ago. For this reason, I hardly met anyone, except a couple individual. I am a stranger on Sailnet which is perfectly OK with me. I don't need to be famous on Sailnet. I just need to be the best sailor in the open sea.
However, whatever floats your boat, it is perfectly fine with me.
