    I didn’t vote because my reaction would depend on how well I know that person. If she’s a really close friend, I’d definitely be excited to see her and I’d shoot her a message ASAP. If she’s someone I haven’t seen in a while or that I’m not particularly close to, I’ll probably keep my mouth shut. I post a lot of stuff on these boards, including personal things, and I don’t need someone I’m only acquainted with in real life knowing any of my drama. (But for some reason having a million strangers from around the world knowing my personal business is just fine. Ha!)

    I’ve recognised someone I know in real life and haven’t told them. They currently post on the waiting board and I suspect given what I know about their relationship and partner that they might be very embarassed if they knew they weren’t as anonymous as they thought they were.

    I think it depends on the situation (like if they post a lot of emotional threads vs ring/dress threads) and how well I knew them. To be honest, if someone I knew recognized me on here I’d want them to tell me. I’m not one for posting personal details of my life, but a heads up would be nice.

    Ignorance on both ends is certainly bliss.

    I -semi- know a bee. She posted a pic of her and her husband (soon to be at the time, back when I was a lurker) and I recognized him! He and I went to the same jr. high and high school. Im not saying anything to her, though, because she hasnt posted on here in ages. It was pretty cool though.. seeing them together all cute and happy. And Ive seen him out and about in town but Im not going to be a creeper and say, “oh I saw you and your wife on this site I post on”. Lol.

    Ps.. if anyone knows me in real life.. say hi! 😀

    If it was a close friend I’d say hey. 

    If it was just a random acquaintance I’d probably leave it.

    Just doing as I’d want someone else to do. (I’d feel awkward if someone I didn’t know that well started messaging me about knowing me in person, but get a good laugh out of it if someone I was close to caught me and was on here too.)

    I know one, who went to my high school. When I saw a photo of her, i did send her a message just to say “hi.” I kinda felt like if I didn’t, it would be creepy. 

    Not that I post a lot of stuff on here I wouldn’t want anyone to know, but I think I’d rather someone say something to me too.
