This is right. 80% of the people that post here right now aren't even in Finance. There is literally nothing to be gained from meeting anyone here at this particular junction in this website's life.

Yes, a few. I have two friends who I'm closest with. One I met in middle school, one I met on WSO. Pretty cool how life works out.

Let's give Drumpfy a wedgie and make America great again**Edit: It's just a joke @Drumpfy - I respect all people, the exception being those with ill will which I don't believe you have (sustaining your history on WSO). We just disagree politically. Just yankin' your chain buddy.

That's you flexing a squat with that half gallon of milk, throwing up a peace sign, isn't it.

Appley, what's your opinion? Comment below:

i'd love to meet more WSO members! but, i'm so shy lol. i'm not sure anyone would really care to get to know me if anything. i'd be happy to grab a drink with some of the people here, even if it ends up just being a chill night out!

Stonks1990, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Late to the party, but yeah, two total. Both were actually normal people - to my surprise! Good dudes, both of whom I stay in contact w/ this day. At the risk of sounding pretentious, it's a personal policy of mine to only connect w/ certified users. Wish it wasn't that way, but far too many trolls on this site nowadays. If you do decide to meet up with someone who you meet on WSO, Reddit, or ANY internet-based platform, please exercise EXTREME caution. Not trying to push the notion of "aHAHhahahahHHHHH everyone on the internet is automatic bad man"Β but just know that it's a lot easier to lie behind a screen. By demonstrating yourself in person you open yourself up to massive liabilities, whether that be career-wise or social.Β 

I'm lucky my experience has been positive. From the comments I've seen, there are a couple of folks I'd love to get the opportunity to meet IRL. [Isaiah_53_5 πŸ’ŽπŸ™ŒπŸ’ŽπŸ™ŒπŸ’Ž], [Pierogi Equities], and [Arroz con Pollo], y'all better let me know when you're in the DMV (besides our lovely DMV native Pierogi) or if I'm in NYC I'll give y'all a shout!
