Chance meeting??

I was wondering if anyone else had run into another AdultFriendFinder member by chance out in public? If so did they recognize you? Did you say anything?

I just got back from working out and ran into a couple that e-mailed me last week. They sent pics that revealed their identity ( a lot of us have body part pics on our profile and head shots etc. in our network folder that reveal who we are ) and complimented me on my blog. They have never seen a face pic of me and I thought it would be weird to say hi. We worked out in the same area for over an hour and the wife kept looking at me. I thought about saying quietly,"Hey, it's Mackey from AdultFriendFinder. Just wanted to say thanks for the complements and the pics." but didn't know if that would embarrass them or make them upset. I felt it was more polite to say nothing and not take the risk.

hmmm... well that is an interesting situation. I don't know what I'd do.
I guess it depends on the person/s and how they appeared online. Were they outgoing, discrete, secretive, etc. And did they recognize me? Also the location and situation where we met would hinder of help a chance introduction. If I or they were with someone I probably would not expose myself or them.

hmmm.... makes me wonder if anyone has ever recognized me and not said anything. hmmmm..

Interesting dilemma and it did cross my mind when I first got here not too long ago. Your final solution was probably best.

I thought it was tactful just to let it go, but then again that statement is coming from me. So take that for what it's worth. ;o)

We have never run into people, outside of planned events. But it is always an interesting thought... "Hi I am BigDick4Fun from AdultFriendFinder?". The couple probably would have been comfortable had you said hello. The awkward part is getting over the blind introduction.

what if you had not "met" that couple before, and the exact same situation presented itself? If there was eye contact, might you not normally have said "hi"? You could always introduce your second self later, if the opportunity presented itself, and it would probably have elicited a bit of laughter. We are, after all, "real people".

So, they emailed a compliment to you. Why not respond w/a thanks back at them?

And ask them to comment on an article -- about whether to acknowledge others in public? Would they be embarrassed, or erotic meeting would be high?

If someone sent me "I saw you in the gym, and wanted to say hello. If this happens again, what would you like me to do?". I'd be flattered.

If they say yes, you probably have some great stories/times to share or create.
If they say no, you're making them more comfortable, and will always have a secret grin inside when you see them again... And the wife will continue to wonder .."are you the one?"
