What is #Friends_Cafe?

Simply put #Friends_Cafe is a great place for friendly people to hangout and meet other friendly people. #Friends_Cafe is not a club or a cult of weirdos. We are a group of friendly people who enjoy a bit of conversation with like minded people. I think we are a bit of an eclectic group of people (well at least Debbie and I are). If you are looking for good friends and pleasant conversation then please join us.

Background information about #Friends_Cafe.

The channel/chatrooms were first started back in late 1995 by Paul Didzerekis (aka PaulDid) and a friend because of the need for more good clean channels on the undernet. Well, PaulDid decided to get the channel registered with the Undernet Service Committee in early 1996 and #Friends_Cafe has since continued to grow and become known as a place where all friendly people are welcome 24 hours a day. In mid year 1997 Paul and Debbie Didzerekis started Three Rivers Internet and moved #Friends_Cafe to web-based chatrooms and now a full blown chat server. There is never a dull moment as romances flourish and discussions can be a bit wacky at times. The topic of conversation is never the same but it is always fun and interesting. If you are a fun and friendly person you are always welcome to stop by the Cafe and grab a seat up front and join in the conversation or sit in the back and just watch the action, either way, I guarantee that you will enjoy yourself and maybe even make some new friends.
