Well like you I've met a person very important to me and I've met several nice people that are very helpful with anything I need help with. As with the other questions, I enjoy the chatroom because I get to learn more about the individual people here on AO. I normally just talk on the chatroom, search the forums and more importantly, post on the RPGs. I'm staying around because someone on here is always there and I'd miss her if I left and besides that, AO is an awesome site that I could never leave for long. I joined because I was at school and I was bored so I started to search for anime sites. This site popped up and it seemed interesting and it was free so I joined...talk about lucky!
