Virtual Relationships – “Only The Good” Friday

June 5, 2009 · Print This Article

Virtual relationships are made everyday on the Internet.   The definition of “Virtual” is interesting.  It means “All Most”… “Imitation”… “Computer Generated.”  Are the relationships formed on the internet make believe?  Are they imitation…  artificial?  Hmmmmm.

Well,  I have to confess… I have many Virtual Relationships via the Internet.  I love to get to know people via their blogs… and I am a member of a couple of forums.  One group I belong to is a business forum called “Milagroworld.” It’s a forum where we toss around business ideas and and give each other support.  And, of course, we chat about personal things too.  I have met many fine people on this forum, which I consider to be my friends.


Well, last night, my sister, Sheila, and I had an opportunity to meet a member of Milagroworld,  Trapper Sherwood, from Nashville, Tennessee.  It was so fun to meet him face to face…because we all had become good friends via the Internet.  He is in Utah on business and we went to dinner together.  Nothing “Make Believe” or “Imitation” about this man.  I found him to be sincere, and loads of fun. We had a good old time talking and sharing information about our families and tossing around business ideas.   After a four hour “chin wag.” we looked up long enough to notice the restaurant had closed it’s doors and was mopping the floor.

So on this “Good Friday”, I want to report that this “Virtual Relationship” turned out to be a great one.  The face to face contact was rewarding.  To feel Trapper’s great energy and spirit told me I had already made a great friend… via the Internet.  This is a “Good Friday.” Thanks Trapper!

Till Later,


Insightful Nana

P.S.  We made new business plans and discussed new ways to support each other.  Now, there is nothing “Virtual” about that.

P.P.S.  To see what Shelly has to say on this “Good Friday”… she’s our host.   Check out my sis, Sheila too.

    Wonderful! I love meeting people with whom I’ve formed a relationship on the internet, and confess it doesn’t happen often enough. Sounds like this was a very good meeting. I’m glad you shared it!
    Have a great weekend!

    Great good, Kathy! (and Sheila, too) I have made a number of wonderful lasting friendships online, one of which has lasted about 13 years so far… since the days of “usenet” member that?? Happy weekend!

    Hello Kathy!

    What a wonderful & productive impromptu mastermind meeting Friday night! And the food was yummy too!

    Also, glad you could come over Friday and watch all the competitors on the Stihl Timbersports series. I wish we had some more time so I could have introduced your grandson to some of them.

    Once again, great time, and I am getting my notes out so I can put into action what we all spoke about Friday night.

    Take care,
