omg omg NOW I remember what drove me nuts!!!

This is a bit of a rant - I would suggest those not interested in reading the ramblings of a mad-man move on to a much more sex-related post like this one that I also wrote today:

How I Swap Spit!! Errr.. I mean the Art of the Kiss

and now.....

Seriously, folks.... lighten up.

Many many moons ago I used to do video chatting with a program called CUSEEME. I started using it at least 10 years ago and used it for several years.

MANY people used it and pre-dated IM programs - you would have to ASK in chat for people's e-mail addys if you wanted to talk outside of th eprogram. Heck - I found out about ISeekU (Phonetic spelling of that IM program ya know) in 1997 from one of my CUSeeMe friends - and at that time none of the other programs existed (or at least weren't available to all for free).

In the course of using the video chat program I developed many close friendships, as with anything groups formed, friendships developed, I personally know of at least 2 marriages that came via people that met using the program.

Oh - and 'get togethers' started happening. Groups of people getting together and meeting in person.

I even went to one with a male friend I met using the program - he picked me up and we drove 12 hours to the appointed location and met 7 or 8 of these other folks we had known for years only via a small lil video window.

Guess what? I left that place and pretty much stopped talking to all of them. Did I dislike them? No. But the real life folks were just not the same as the people I had imagined all those years while chatting online with them. I do still talk to the guy I drove out with but as for the rest - not a word in years.

Fast forward a few years - I am involved in a BBS site (no - not here) - the community grows - people start having get-togethers all over the country... One is set for Chicago (no - not THIS site!!!) I am invited - do I go? Nope. Can't see doing it - not worth the potential down side.

So where am I going with with all of this? I'm not in any way knocking the group that got together recently - not one single bit - I was jealous in fact that they all were able to do it and I am glad that the core group seems to have come away feeling wonderful about the experience.

All I know is when you get too close to MANY people in an online community as a group - something always seems to come up and personalities clash and then others are expected to pick sides or defend people. Its nuts. Too many chefs, too many chiefs, yadda yadda - run away run away!!

Drama is not for me, I am here to meet people, preferably women but the guys I have communicated with on here are ok in a PURELY NON-SEXUAL way (lol). This site however is not going to take over my life - as a matter of fact IF (doubtful) I do again find someone close to me and things develop - then guess what? Chances are I will dissapear for at least some period of time.

What I won't do is I won't make an announcement. To me in MOST (not all) cases people announcing they are leaving is just a way to get attention - sorry - thats how I feel.

btw - as for the drama - give it a rest people - or take it OFF the blogs - no need to hash this stuff out publicly - or half publicly so that some of us know SOMETHING is up but no juicy details

thats it - sorry for the rant and I love you all!!*

*note to the men - umm - you know I don't really love you right??? cool

    Quoting saddletrampsk:
    I liked your sexual post better..shut up and kiss me..
lol, I will quote saddletramp

I announced I was leaving back in August. It didn't last long. It wasn't for attention I just wanted to let those who watch my blog that I was going to go pay attention to my new friend and was no longer going to blog (mostly about my emails). Then I missed ya'll so I update the post every so often.

What happened to make you write this post?

Do you have any idea how many I chatted with then met and after meeting no longer chatted with them?

saddletrampsk - Thank you - I like the sexual posts better too!! lol

UvannaHumpalot - being the semi-paranoid person I can be at times I was unsure if your post was for laughs or because you thought I said something inappropriate - either way I sent you a note to make sure

barbiebunny - old... yes... old indeed

greeneyesatl05 - you left for good reason and didn't make a big deal out of it - you and I both know that there have been some folks here in the past that have seemed to say 'goodbye' simply to see how much of a reaction they can get out of people. That wasn't your reason

your_fave_MRE - mission accomplished!!

waggypolly - ty for the welcome back The rant actually didn't end up going quite as I meant - the Chicago thing did of course come to mind because there was some drama before and after the get together - but the main reason for the rant was because of other drama that I came across while reading blogs today - where people seem to be publicly airing out stuff that more than likely could be simply discussed between 2 or 3 people. When I see that all I can think is that part of it is being done for attention. Clear as mud?
