Is This a Lifestyle?

I read a blog that referred to this site as being a lifestyle and how hard it was to get out of this lifestyle once you were in it. Unless she was referring to a lifestyle in which she didn't clarify and I didn't understand, I don't know what to make of this. Up until this, I've never considered meeting people online and possibly hooking up or developing friendships as being a "lifestyle". I was involved in the BDSM lifestyle for a while and this is completely different to me. That is a lifestyle. So is swinging. Since I don't particpate in either of those activities how can I be in a lifestyle?!

So here is my question to you. Do you consider this to be a lifestyle? Would it be hard for you to leave this "world" behind for a realtime live relationship?

Like you said, clarification is a must. Are you on this site for the thrill of the hunt? If so, it may be hard to settle down. If, on the other hand, you are looking for that certain someone and you find him (or her or them!) and all the stars align, then it should be no problem. It's up to each individual and what he/she really wants from this experience.

I hardly consider myself to be addicted to this "lifestyle,' whatever it may be as defined by this site. What I will freely admit to being addicted to is, of course, all things SRB - blogs, photos, profile, etc!

"lifestyle" well if that is what she sees it as, I see it as expanding my knowledge of the wide world outside of colorado and meeting wonderful people, through this site. Could I leave it for the "real world" well do it daily so...yep I do believe I can Addictive? Yep this site is very addictive, my sprky lives in the chat room on here, I live in blog land, now that I have found it I am thankful I have

Because of this "lifestyle" I now have several, friends, I wouldn't have found, that have left footprints on my heart, words in my soul, and someone I can "talk to" when I need a new perspective on a situation.

I like this "lifestyle"

hugs and smiles

I totally agree! I've only had maybe one or two weird incidences relating to this site. Just weird emails from idiot men.... seriously, one said, "I want you to buy me things" or something. Oh okay... can I please?! LOL It was easy to take care of that. I just blocked him.

I love blogging. It's been addictive to me as well. I leave it behind all the time. That's why I didn't understand the reference to lifestyle.

Now, you go to an S&M party... get all dressed up and decked out in leather and lace or not much of anything or you start trolling the isles of your local hardware store to find things to rig to restrain somebody... THEN you're in a lifestyle. LOL

If rope suddenly isn't about strapping something down in the back of your pickup truck but, rather, something you use to tie up some guy's balls... THEN you're in a lifestyle!!

When those silly paint stirrers are no longer just paint stirrers but paddles for "bad" booties... THEN you're in a lifestyle. Esp. when you go and ask for the FIVE gallon-sized paint stirrer... you're really in a lifestyle.

God, I miss those days!!!!!!!!!!
