I have been talking to a female in which we play the same game.

Not chance of catfishing as she has a husband who I have talk to as well.

It's a train trip away and can meet in a matural place in a city I would love to visit anyway so if it's a no show I can see a few museums.

Dh has never 'stopped' me from going anywhere and he is not a controlling person and encourages me to go out with friends ect.

Wibu to go anyway.

Providing you follow all the usual safety advice I would go. Or ask DH to come with and wait in the car where he can see you or something?

Kerberos Mon 27-Jun-16 20:13:04

Same game?

MrsSpecter Mon 27-Jun-16 20:17:30

I'm sure you know how to keep yourself safe in a strange city, he could come with you if he is concerned but really i think hems being ridiculous. You arent going to climb into any vans with her are you?

MrsSpecter Mon 27-Jun-16 20:18:49

Actually, i dont know if he is being ridiculous so i retract that. He has concerns, perhaps fair enough. What is he saying?

Redglitter Mon 27-Jun-16 20:19:29

Definitely meet her. I've met some great friends online. If you're meeting for lunch or coffee in a public place what are his concerns

CarpeJugulum Mon 27-Jun-16 20:19:39

Provided you are safe, sensible and take precautions then you should be fine.

Biased coz I met one of my good friends via online gaming and he introduced me to DH

EveOnline2016 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:20:01

An online game.

We talk over the Internet

Kerberos Mon 27-Jun-16 20:20:13

I suppose it's similar to going to a MN meet up?

Kerberos Mon 27-Jun-16 20:20:42


Being nosy - what game? smile

ChocolateTeacup Mon 27-Jun-16 20:21:30

Well my OH and I met on wow, so I am a little biased, open public space I would say go for it

Follow the usual guidelines for meeting someone in person when you know them online. As long gas your careful and initially meet in a public place there isn't any harm. DH & I have made life long friends from online gaming and have travelled over the world to meet them, holidayed together and been to each others weddings LOL Not everyone online is a mass murdering weirdo smile

bushtailadventures Mon 27-Jun-16 20:23:24

As long as you are sensible and meet in a public place I don't see the problem. I have had some lovely days with friends I met on an internet forum,wouldn't have missed them for the world.

Oysterbabe Mon 27-Jun-16 20:27:57

I don't see the problem. I've met many a mumsnetter.

EveOnline2016 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:27:57

(Unless it's the game your name suggests, in which case she's clearly a spai for the Goons. Trust nobody! Never undock! Ahem.)

You have just as much chance of meeting a weirdo in a club or bar or whatever as you do of meeting them online. As long as people are sensible and meet in public places and get to know them properly what's the harm in it? I met dh online, plenty of fish. Been together coming up to 7 years now grin

EveOnline2016 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:34:14

Thankfully not a goon. I did her api if I ever found out she was a goon I would kick her from Corp.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Mon 27-Jun-16 20:34:20

YNBU. I've met tons of MNers and this doesn't strike me as any different. Just be sensible!

EveOnline2016 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:37:38


You have me interested what do you do in game.

blitheringbuzzards1234 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:43:30

Why not meet together as a foursome in a public place for coffee? You may find that they become life-long friends. As long as you all do the necessary stuff to be safe. If you don't meet up you'll never know.

jay55 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:43:50

I know someone who married her online scrabble partner. Go have fun.

Mcchickenbb41 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:49:05

Ahh don't be too hard on him I'm sure he's just worried about safety etc. Especially if it's not the norm for him to ask you not to do something. I'm not saying you shouldn't go btw smile

53rdAndBird Mon 27-Jun-16 20:49:39

I don't play at the moment - no time sad But I used to live in in a C3 WH with a little mostly-industrial/ratting corp. I was useless at PvP - used to end up feeling sorry for inept WH wanderers and refunding their ships if I blew them up grin Never lived in null - plan to give that a try if I ever get back in game.

EveOnline2016 Mon 27-Jun-16 20:56:11

I'm in null. Currently MN as we have 35 neuts in system in the wrong time zone.

I mainly do mining in my skiff. But also love abit of ratting.

Hoping they warp to the citadel.
