I removed your E-mail address. The issue is that if someone is in their account and log out without closing the window, you can still see the body of posts and move around the site. Therefore your E-mail address would be exposed. Private Messages on the site are a much better way to go.
I also forgot to say that you can search for other members in Wisconsin. Click on Social in the menu, then click on Member Directory and you can search from there.
When you have the opportunity, please complete your Profile page as best you can. It really helps other members to understand your situation better.
