Blogging is hell....

Just when I thought I had conquered all the tough stuff on here, I find yet another layer in the hell that is on-line relationship searching.

I have found that people are much more comfortable chatting back and forth on here than on IM's or direct emails, I guess it goes back to what you are used to. I dig through about 200 emails a day, and have for the last 7 or 8 years so thats what I'm comfortable with. My IM connections look like the telephone book of a small mid-western town these days. Luckily I was able to start new IM and Email accounts specifically for talking with people on here.

I am dismayed daily by the amount of false/fake/spam accounts I see. Luckily it doesn't take a rocket scientist to spot the pattern and just avoid those accounts altogether, but occasionally I get fooled.

I have heard a lot of rumblings about people setting up meets and not showing up, etc. I prefer to get to know someone better from a distance (i.e. Make sure you are who you say you are) before I make that next step for a face to face if things should come to that.
