Hi, I am new here. I have known of this website for a while but have not signed up till now. Everything I have seen and heard about ATS tells me it
is a great place to meet the kind of people I would like to get to know, as well as a place to discuss interesting ideas, opinions and news.
I have resisted the call to sign up for a number of reasons......
1. it seems addictive and I simply don't have time to spend hours here, which I know would end up happening if I am having fun here (which I expect
2. the scope of topics and interests is HUGE and somewhat intimidating and
3. it is a bit overwhelming seeing how well some members get on with each other and I feel a bit like the outsider trying to intrude into private
conversations. I will be absent from the site for long periods of time and that makes me worry that, if I don't respond quickly to replies or
questions, then other members will feel that I don't want to acknowledge them which will appear rude.
4. ..... never mind (there is a 4 but maybe when I know you better....)
So there are the reasons I took so long about NOT being here, but I have run out of excuses now. As I said in my title line I am making baby steps
towards getting to know people here. Looking forward to getting to know you.
A bit about me - I live in the UK, near London, but I was born and brought up in South Africa. Apart from the rubbish weather, I have settled very
happily in England, because I am one of those really blessed people in life who has found their soulmate and ended up happily married. I don't want
to go on about me too much at the moment, but I guess as I get comfy here more of my story will come out.
