Talking How many of you have Physically met a PTO Member


I was just wondering how many of you have met another member on here and what was it like for you?
I recently had the plesure of meeting a PTO member now I consider a great friend and we had a wonderful time, we did alot of talking about all kinds of things both good and bads of being a wife of an imnmate. We both shed tears I think that were held in some time we had a new understanding of "your not alone" statement. To me to be able to actually sit down and talk put it all out on the table and heave no fears of what another person thinks or that they dont understand was a weight lifted off me. Have any of you had this pleasure.

LOL this is a good question to ask. I sometimes look around at visit and wonder if any of the other ladies are on PTO. I have never met a member but I wish i could and I hope to in the future.

Yes, I have. The first PTO member I met actually turned me on to PTO. We met because we had our FRP visits scheduled during the same dates. She told me about PTO and we've been friends ever since.

Also, after becoming a PTO member myself... I almost instantly clicked with another member in the NY PTO forum... we talked on the phone all night and I felt like I found a long lost sister. Shortly after we met and went to dinner and shopped and talked and we had a ball.

And earlier this month about 10 of us met up for a PTO NY G2g and all of the ladies were wonderful... a real pleasure to meet and be around.

It's refreshing being able to talk with other women who are going through this.

I have met a very dear friend of mine on PTO. I think that our friendship transcends the prison thing, and will be lifelong.

I would say most of my really close friends are from PTO! I've met several members through get togethers or the need to share rides.

I have met several thru dinners/get togethers. Then a few on my own, just by casual conversation. There are a few that I have become very friendly with away from PTO. I have a very good friend where she & I get together each visit.

Me also, I have made an especially dear friend in Johncat. I have met some other ladies who are very sweet and also understand. I cannot express what a difference having someone who TRULY understands what this is like makes. Like LongHaul, I believe Johncat and I will always be friends, it is rare to meet someone like her that you instantly connect with. She is awesome.

I have met well over 100 PTO members and not had a single bad experience with any of them. I've met members from at least a dozen countries and many states.

I have! Goldenglove, and she has become my best friend. Wait, let me rephrase that, more like a sister to me. :love:

We met in October, towards Halloween and we have been inseperable ever since. She lives like 5 miles from me until I moved and now she is like 5 minutes from me.

It's great to FINALLY meet someone who knows EXACTLY what I am going thru and who I can vent to and who can vent to me.

THANKS PTO!!

I have met one(in person) so far and we have become really close. It is really nice to have someone to talk to about things that only WE understand. We both met our men in the same situation which makes our understanding of each other that much stronger.

I will be meeting another member in person this week-end and I am looking forward to getting to know her better.

I have made 2 more really good friends that are really dear to me. One is in Cali. and the other in Oklahoma. I don't know that I will ever get to meet them in person but who knows. I would be really cool.

I can say that each one of them have a special place in my heart. I am SO glad that I found PTO and was givin the opportunity to meet some really good people. I hope to get to know many more of the member's here.

I haven't met anybody "physically" but I met one who's becoming very dear to me. She actually came at a very weird point..where I thought I was going insane..or at least falling in a serious depression state. Just emails (very loooooong ones!) and then IMs have lead to us definitely intending on meeting soon. she lives not too far from me. Then there's another lady whom I've been keeping in touch with. She lives quite far, however, but we've learned about e/o as well. Actually, she lives closer to my boo than I!!! lol But I can't wait until I do meet up with you, DA (ya know who you are!). It's amazing how this site has been my rock.

I became really close with 2 members here. Unfortunately, they both live on the other side of the country and we were never able to arrange a meeting. Both have since split up with their boyfriends and don't really come on here as much anymore...

I had the pleasure of meeting EDWARDSMISS on my recent trip to PA.
Until that point, I had nobody I could talk to about my man, my family and friends refer to him as 'that criminal' so I don't mention him to them anymore,it's not worth the hassle it causes.

It was great to be able to get a lot of stuff out in the open, sometimes things seem like a major problem,until you meet someone else in a similar position and you realise it is possible to deal with things.

Meeting my new friend has made a huge difference to things,I now know I can chat to someone who understands what I go through and I can also support her and listen when she needs somebody,as we all do from time to time.

I can't wait until the end of February, not only do I get to fly out and see my baby again, but I get to hang out and spend some time with a good friend.

I have met one who offered a place to stay before she even met me to help me save some money. She is now one of my closest friends and will be there as my witness when we get married.

No I Havent Met Anyone From Pto But Woudnt Mind To Meet Someone Off Here. The People I Ride Up To The Prison My Husband Is At They Are Real Close Friends Of Mine When You Have Friends Out In The Streets That Think Your Crazy For Doing All That You Do For Your Man. They Just Dont Understand Like All Us Faithful Woman..
