You're probably not a co-worker of Chandler's who's being interrogated by Monica & Chandler as they consider finding a sperm donor. Nonetheless, we want to get to know you! (But we promise not to ask you about your family's medical history or anything creepy like that.) This thread is for general conversation and friend-making. ;D
Chat away! For safety reasons, please make sure not to give out any personal information such as your full name or address.
I'm Jen. Folks from the old Friends-Boards back in the day prob'ly remember me as Monnie, or Gale Weathers. GOOD TIMES. What was that, like, eight years ago? Longer than that? Ugh, we're all so ooooooold. If 23 is old. Which it kind of is. Compared to 14, which was when I started all this nonsense.
Other stuff about me, hm. I am not active in the Friends fandom really anymore, but I am still good friends with Katie after all these years so here I am. I AM active on Tumblr, though, and in the Xena, Farscape, and X-Files fandoms, as well as the gaming community.
Firstly, I won't ever grow tired of saying it, but thanks for doing this, Katie! This board is the closest I'll ever get to a time-machine.
I'm Lorena. I may or may not have gone by as Lolly at our beloved Friends-Board. I used to be one of the Courteney-obsessed teens back in those days.
These days my obsessions are completely fairy tale-related. So much for growing up, eh? And although my main focus is currently on Once Upon a Time, I occasionally dare revisit the Friends fandom on Tumblr.
Hi, I'm Grace. I pretty new to the whole F.R.I.E.N.D.S fandom, being that I was too young to watch it while it aired. But now I am a huge fan, I have the biggest crush on David Schwimmer and yeah. If you have any questions about me, I'll be free to answer. I also have a Tumblr, and I am very active in the Friends fandom. So I think that's all to know, for now. This is gonna be exciting.
Hello I'm Jess. I never was on a Friends forum or in the fandom before (But I know a thing or 2 about fandoms ;D). Ummm I'm 18 and Friends has been one of my favourite shows since 2003 No matter how many times I see an episode I NEVER get bored (my brother and I will often shout "Did she get off the plane? Did she get off the plane?!?!" "I got off the plane" to each other ) Umm, Chandler and Phoebe are my favourite (of course I love Chandler, he's akward and wants to be loved like me, and is hilarious!...unlike me haha!) and TOW The Embryos is my favourite episode (I think...THERE'S TOO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM...yeah, I love the pop quiz ) And in case you haven't noticed, I talk a lot haha Hi
Hi, I'm Crystal, and yes I have a lame username atm but it's my name (:
I have always loved Friends, even though I was kind of young...okay I'm only 18 (: It definitely caught my eye since my parents would always watch it. I loved watching the reruns, and am currently super obsessed.
I used to be a hardcore Rachel lover, but now it's all Monica and Chandler (: I love all the characters though, don't get me wrong (:
I've never been a part of a forum, so I'm new and very excited about this, as my friends are sick of hearing me talk about friends all the time, haha.
Hi, Crystal! And hey, your username can be whatever you want... but if you ever want to change it, there's an option to change your display name in the profile options.
I know all about friends being sick of hearing me talk about the show, trust me. The other day I was telling a college friend about making this forum, and she had no idea I was so obsessed, and I was like... yeah, that's because I pretty much stopped talking about it after high school because everyone started to get annoyed at me for it. But that's the beauty of forums! No one here gets annoyed if you babble. ;D
Hi everyone, I'm Lucy! I was Lulu on the Friends Boards all those years ago, and I was 16 then and at school, active all over Teh Intarwebz. I'm 24 now, work in PR, and am online much less, alas. I'm not part of any fandoms any more and have been thinking lately how much I miss that interaction, so YAY KATIE!
I still relate most things to Friends, but I'm lucky enough that I have friends/colleagues/family who are quite understanding. My boyfriend isn't much of a Friends fan which sucks, and one day I will convert him, I'm sure. (I hope!)
It's all about Monica and Chandler for me, but I don't dislike any of the characters.

I'm Leanne and I've been part of the Friends fandom for many, many years - even before friends-boards was around!
I was whispervixen on friends-boards. Gawd. I wasn't always active there though, but I was still around; mostly posting in the Ross/Rachel and Jennifer threads. And pre-friends-boards, back in the late 90's/early 00's, I was active on the Warner Bros Friends boards (I will love you forever if ANYONE can remember those! Good times.). My username was crazyrach back then. LOL.
I was out of the loop with the Friends fandom for years, and only came back into it about a year ago - via Tumblr. It was then I realised how much I missed it! Friends was my first online fandom and I discovered things like 'shipping, fanfiction, and fandom in general via it. I owe a lot to it.
Rachel and Chandler are my favourite characters, and Ross/Rachel are my ship-it-like-burning OTP.
Hi, Leanne! I'm so glad that someone who's literally seen it all when it comes to the fandom is still in the fandom! That's so exciting! Seriously. Also really glad to have some Ross/Rachel and Jen people on here because I don't know that much about Jen myself, and it'd be great to have someone who can add info to those threads.
