I've lurked here for a bit, and it's time to introduce myself. I live on the East Coast of the U.S. and I am just old enough (in real life!) to remember the time before we had sites like this.
When I was young, there were BBS systems before the web got big, and we used to connect to those to look for stories and to connect with people.
Only once did I really have a good connection (like an attraction) with another AB, his name was Scotty, and we arranged to meet in NY and had a great time. It was only one day (and one night!!!) but it was a lot of fun. We explored Manhatten wearing diapers under our clothes. We went to FAO Schwartz (toy store) and did lots of other stuff too. We lost touch at some point, since both of us moved and got new emails. (Scotty, if you are reading this, contact me!!)
I was happy to find ADISC because of the idea of a community where we can all be ourselves.
