Yes. I have two lady friends I know from Women Awake and we talk regularly, one of them posts here as well. I visited her when I was staying in Connecticut last year: Sunny Gal. We know almost anything we tell each other will not shock the other. How can you feel anything but comfortable with a friend like that? She's also friends with the other lady from Women Awake. And that friend DID invite both of us to her wedding, we just weren't able to go.
I have another friend who was a former elder, who hales from England, that I met here. He's a very nice fellow and we write once a week or so and share about our cultures, concerns and talk about music, etc. He's a true gentleman and has the honor of being one of the "Rainy Day People". Andy and I hope to meet him someday.
Then there are people I haven't met or talked to on the phone, but I know we'd be good friends. Hey, Morty, I am still waiting for the invite to the ski resort you were thinking of buying a time share or something like that for. There are a few of you that I know would be very comfortable company.
