Have you ever run into someone on Paleo Hacks who you know in real life? I.e., you recognized their name or picture and after reading some of their profile and/or some of their posts, you realized it was someone you knew in real life, but hadn't known they were paleo. Did this spark a closer relationship in real life? As the community here grows, I'm guessing it's bound to happen more and more frequently.
Thanks everyone for sharing. This is very intriguing to me. I very much enjoy asking, learning, sharing about paleo and my paleo exerience here on Paleo Hacks. I think it is helpful in so many ways (better understanding, positive reinforcement, sense of acceptance/community, intellectually stimulating, etc). I'm guessing it could be even better/different being able to share this with someone in real life, but I don't know anyone who is paleo. I'm very happily married, so obviously not looking for a love connection, but always hoping I might notice someone here who I happen to know on the outside. Thanks again.
The Rules of post-recognition Paleo Hackers meet-n-greet:
1st RULE: You do not talk about diet.
2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about DIET.
3rd RULE: If someone says "hey my body fat is 7% and I have 11 abs" and then flexes or you think they are about to, taps out the meet-n-greet is over.
4th RULE: No limit to attendees to a meet-n-greet.
5th RULE: One cocktail at a time.
6th RULE: No bad food, no shoes unless feet are gross.
7th RULE: Meet-n-greets will go on as long as they have to.
8th RULE: If this is your first time at a meet-n-greet, you HAVE to give low fives.
Note: I am Ninja and have met some of The Others but that is all this one will share.
ive met a bunch of PH'ers, but ill never say who. its was a secret meeting that ended in an orgy of pastry flour.
Yes. But neither mentioned it. What is posted in PaleoHacks, stays in PlaeoHacks. First rule of PaleoHacks: DON'T TALK ABOUT PALEOHACKS. I'm pretty sure we were both buying beer,
Have there been love connections made or even PH babies born?
I wish I could flag, up/down vote and edit people in real life :)
I wonder if Kamal's timing is as good in person!
Closest thing that happened is that I knew another member from another forum and facebook, and I recognized her humor - so I called her out on facebook and it turned out to be her. She's also a local so we share paleo food finds along the way (as well as favorite cheat spots - freaking enablers).
I have some totally non-paleo, psuedo-cron, geek friends that freaked out when I +1'ed a Paleohacks post on Google+ - "OMG I LOVE PALEOHACKS!".
Apparently some of the lurkers here just appreciate the science..
I have not, but that's what I get for living outside of major population centers.
The closest I have come is being in the grocery checkout line in Wegmans, Dewitt, NY, USA... and I landed right behind someone who was using Cordain's Paleo book AND cookbook as a shopping list for the first time.
I was able to say some very encouraging things and it felt good to connect and support.
Are any of you near Syracuse? (tap tap) Anyone?
I met up with someone here on PaleoHacks who also lives in Santa Fe.
Great to connect & hope there will be more folks over time...
I also have a long-time friend/client who joined a few months ago.
