Yep... I have found that ConLangers wanna meet more so than Auxlangers. Even overcomin' whatever social anxieties to do so!!! Auxlangers tend to be a lil less sure of themselves (I tried meeting with local Glosa & Interlingua peeps, but they always made last minute excuses &/or change-of-plans, etc.... & one time I did meet with some Auxlangers, but they were these Anarchist-Punk-Hippy Esperantoists from some Baja, Mexico commune & they kinda freaked me out a bit as bein' a LIL bit on the cult-level... go figger...)

czHANg, scary lookin'(-but-loveable-as-fruitbat) tattooed & scarred-up hoodlum-bookworm ;P who also doesn't talk overly much in real life (..._hombre duro_... only blowhards talk too much... talk is cheap... etc.)
