Depends on what you call "know". I've *met* about 7 or 8 last year in a meetup group that got started, and then closed down after two meetings last year. Now there is another one about an hour and a half away from me, and I've been to that one once, and met maybe 14 or so. My bf has picked it up in the past month- so I know him! lol.
I hear ya, Glamazon-- I have a friend who is a trained classical chef. She is actually *angry* at me for the way I eat. Thing is, I am fairly flexible, 'cause I hate making anyone uncomfortable, or putting anyone out of the way-- so I will eat just about anything when socializing -- as long as it has nothing cow (I am allergic). But just knowing I eat this way for some reason pushes her buttons. Go figure.
