There should be a term for meeting someone you know from the internet in a physical location in person for the first time even though you’ve already been friends for ages because “meeting” is not really adequate.

Please everyone stop suggesting “meating.” It was of course the obvious choice but... google it.

Anyway my internet friends are delightful and it is always an immense pleasure to finally interact with them on this corporeal plane 🤗
