    (Aside from the obvious ones who we know are together as a product of, or at least ON the boards)

    I just went out with this kid who not only has been on a couple messageboards, but who even modded one.
    This is the first I've encountered this and I must say my feelings are mixed...

    On one hand, he GETS it. I've never been with someone who "gets" it.
    I explained my Ivan tattoo (he has yet to see it) and he laughed. He totally thinks that whole thing is cool.
    He's received gifts from fellow posters, as have I. And he's even met fellow posters, as have I. And he identifies with the fact that most of our friends don't understand the appeal, or even the whole dynamic.

    On the OTHER hand. With past boyfriends, there was always security in the fact that even if they DID decide to snoop into this part of my life, they'd find nothing unsavory because they wouldn't know where to look/what to do. This guy would know his way around.

    Also a guy who's been on boards KNOWS how women are fussed over here; some of the comments/PMs we receive (as well as how women sometimes respond)... so in a relationship situation (which is very premature thinking, at this point) that could make for trepidation on his part as to my posting on one.

    Correction:

    You need an older guy that lives in the mountains about 2,000 miles away.
