We all have friends, some are close friends, some are acquaintances. Maybe you are friends with a society or an organization which doesn't mean you know them personally. You are just associated with that particular organization.

I have friends, I have people I've known since childhood, people I've known for just a few short years, but all can be relied on and called upon if need be. I have friends on Facebook, well  over a thousand of them. I have friends on reverbnation, which is a music based site...over 32,000 on there.  I don't know them all, I've never met the majority ,but there are quite a few I have met personally. Even online you can soon get the measure of what a person is like by the way they conduct themselves, by what they say on their own page, the attitudes they show, then you can maybe choose whether you want to meet them in person.

Any kind of shared interest can bring people together. Music is a good one, shared feelings at a gig or concert, or just sat listening to records can bring you closer together. But, it's not just music that can do that, Naturism does also. It is much easier now to make friends in naturism with the advent of the internet and various sites that spring up. I'm a member of 2 very good ones at the moment, but let's just hark back to the days of the old Skinbook. I had just joined and was a little wary I must admit,  that was soon quashed when I got talking to people. I mentioned we were going to Fuerteventura for the first time in 2009 and this is how we got to know Charlie. He'd been the year before and went out of his way to point us in the right direction as to beaches and places to go, even sending us some photographs of himself and the beaches. Very helpful we thought, and thought nothing more of it.

When we got back, Charlie got in touch and asked what kind of time we had. We said it was so good we're going again. It was the first time my lady had gone naked on the beach figuring that she didn't know anybody there. Continuing to chat with Charlie, we found out we had a lot more in common than just naturism like the same daft sense of humour, Honda 400/4 Motorcycles and we'd meet halfway with music. Getting on like a house on fire we were.

 Last year we planned a camping trip down to Cornwall where they live and found we were camping just a mile from their house so we arranged to meet up for a beer and food. They invited us back to the house another night to try out the hot tub to which we agreed. We turned up the following night, a little apprehensive as we'd only just met them in person, in fact, I did joke with Charlie and asked him if he was an axe murderer, he replied that he wasn't....just a chainsaw murderer as his axe was at the sharpeners. That lightened the mood, but we just hung back to see the dress code. Naked it was so we both stripped of and jumped into the hot tub with them both. This was the first time we'd been naked in the company of people we knew, also the first time Charlies wife was naked with other people, which pleased him no end.

We'd never been in a hot tub's just total luxury. And with the added good feeling that we were all naked just topped the evening. Since then we've been and stayed at their house, enjoying the hot tub once again and now they are visited us last week. We can't offer a hot tub, but we do have a log burner in the back yard and can offer good naked time in the this time of year I think that's a good idea as it was a little cold

We have now become firm friends, and will continue to be so. We're off to Fuerteventura next year in a villa together to celebrate their wedding anniversary and Jans birthday, really looking forward to spending some quality naked time with them then.

So, don't be shy...make friends. Have the confidence to make the first move and say hello.  There are some really nice people out there who share our passion...and more, just because we have no clothes on shouldn't stop you.  As Samuel not THAT one....once said - 'If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone.  A man should keep his friendships in constant repair'.  We don't want to be alone, nudity is a social thing, nudity makes you feel good and with others it can be quite a spiritual experience, so go on......make a new friend today.

    Peter & Mary W We agree that it's nice to meet up - we've had quite a chat with Charlie over both our passions for Leicester Tigers - we've met quite a few couples over the years at Lakeside in Lincolnshire.
