None, and I'm not sure I want to increase that number.
Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.

It would be nice to meet a couple, but I have not had the chance.......
Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)
I'm new here, and have no idea if I may have met anyone here or not (due to handles).
I've been involved in other internet groups in which I've met members in numbers from a few to over 100. What I've learned is that people can be quite different in person than their online persona, myself included.
None that I know of, although at one point early on I remember seeing a post that led me to believe it was someone in my neighborhood (who I may or may not know).
Given that I enjoy getting together with smart people, especially those with a sense of humor, perhaps meeting some fellow bots in person would be fun - hadn't really thought of it before.

ER'd Oct. 2010 at 53. Life is good.
But based on names/avatars alone I'd be interested in meeting some folks. A few just crack me up. Col. Klink for one. BirdieNumNums is another. And of course, W2R's old avatar along with bbbamI's old avatar had me interested for different reasons.
Of course, imagination is almost always better than reality.
