    I'm lonely and have essentially next to no friends. I was wondering if any of you have any past positive experiences of meeting up with fellow tumblrs? I personally don't like the site very much but I'd be willing to attend a meet-up just to make new friends ;__;

    Is getting raped "worth it"?

    Depends who rapes you I guess.

    Do you have a tumblr blog? Maybe ask if any of your followers are going to the meetup so you hang with them and then introduce yourself to the other bloggers. Depending on how many people go to the meetup, it could be quite successful and you may make some friends. Maybe don't mention how much you dislike the site though, since most tumblr users are very... passionate about the site haha.

    Oh and stick to all those safety rules about meeting strangers off the internet.

    Tumblr is full of weirdos and obsessive young teens and children. Steer clear, and for heavens sake avoid at all cost merging it with real life. If you don't like the site, I doubt you'd like the people you meet from there...

    I don't even have a tumblr blog I just want to use tumblr as a tool to meet new people. Oh yes, I'd be fairly safe considering I'm a 17 year old male and the event is mainly filled with 16-18 year old girls and a few guys as well.

    I think it would be weird to turn up if you don't have a blog.
    You could make one now, turn up to the meetup and tell everyone you're new to the site and you're looking to make friends with fellow blogggers?

    Just out of interest which meetup are you going to?

    The London one tomorrow. And that's what I now intend on doing I've already befriended a fellow female whom is close in age to me, so I have some sort of company, providing she doesn't find me physically repulsive.

    Well good luck for tomorrow then!
    I hear there's usually a lot of people who go to the London one so you're bound to make friends.
