Do you have online favorites that you have come across here and on other forums?

No need to name names, just a simple yes or no will suffice

I do! There's quite a few that I really, really want to meet. I know I'll (probably) never get to meet any of the Canadian Mamas, but I wish I could!

define favorites?

There are some that I connect with better then others, some that I talk to off the boards so if that is a favorite sure, but to me that is just networking and making friends, not favorites

I wouldn't say favourites either, but for sure I connect to some more than others. Sometimes I feel a little more out of place here when compared to Kairi's group. Though her group hasn't been on JM forever, but I talk to several on FB daily. I met one, because she is closer to me, and have plans to take a trip to the US to meet the others. I count 3 women I met here on JM to be some of my best friends.

I guess by favorites, I generally mean people that you like more and care more about what they have to say

And yes, I do. But that being said it doesn't mean that I have non-favorites (ie people I dislike) I just have people I connect with more.

Not so much favorites, but girls I 'click' with better and that I have become friends with.

Oh I WISH! That would require a whole lot more planning! I'd love to some day though! Actually I'll just be popping over the boarder a couple hours. Not that far south!

I'm still all for some kind of mass meet up someplace in between... or tropical. Let's do tropical. Think 5-10 year from now, if we're still all talking, it should be done!

I have a few "favorites", I guess you could say. There are some that I feel like I can take seriously and would probably be good friends with in real life. There are maybe two people who I feel the opposite about, but I'm nice to them anyway because we're still a big family. LOL

Most days I click more with some than others. Some days my hormones just get the better of me, and I'm just a witch. Sorry.

I don't really know... I am not very good at interacting socially online so I haven't really gotten to know anyone that well. I suck so bad at the whole online friend thing lol. There are several people I know I would get along with really well, but I also get along with most everyone in real life so who knows.

I try not to, and chose not to participate in certain activities on the board to keep that from happening. People cliqued together, & a lot of favoritism was shown based on parenting styles in Layla's PR, and there were a lot of hurt feelings. I would say my method worked because I've been here two years next month, & I'm still enjoying myself! I stopped posting early on after Layla's DDC became a PR.
I try to consider everyone's opinion if they took the time to reply to one of my posts. I also try to reply to everyone's post here.
I will say that I value each person here who posts regularly for a unique reason.
Rachel said not to name names, but I know who will be blunt with me (which I love), who will have cooking ideas, crafty ideas, fashion, ideas, who will talk education, who will engage in a friendly debate, who shares a similar sense of humor, & who will pacify my feelings.
So yeah. Y'all are all good for something.

I definitely have people that I "click" with better. I've gotten really, really close with a few people on this board and talk to them almost daily about everything.
Really though, it wouldn't be the same without every single person here
And there's no one here that I dislike. I think we're a good mesh of women, especially considering it is so easy to take what someone says on the internet the wrong way!

I don't really have favorites. I like it here though. I have a hard time clicking with women in general because 99% won't give me a chance after they find out what I do for a living. I've been pitch forked off a couple of parenting forums in the past because "someone like me should never be married or be allowed to have kids." That hasn't happend here and I'm so thankful that ladies here are more open minded and less judgemental.

Very well said and I completely agree with you.

I enjoy posting here but there are times where I feel like a huge outsider and dont think I really click with anyone but even with that said I still like coming here.

It never ceases to amaze me how rude and judgemental people are.
I guess if you shouldn't be allowed to have kids neither should half of Hollywood and anyone who has ever workedin porn. There goes half the population!

Lyndsey that makes me sad I'd hate for anyone to feel that way. I mean, I know people do because a few people have left because they have felt that way, or just don't post often, but it makes me feel bad none the less.

Ugh that's ridiculous. I don't know what you do for a living, but I can't imagine one mother saying that to another. I remember in my very first DDC (on AOL lol... must have been a long time ago) when I was pregnant with my first there was a really beautiful girl who was also pregnant and a lot of the women treated her like crap because she was a lingerie model or something like that. I think they were just jealous because she had a fun and exciting life Women can be awful!
