Phase 3 in full bloom!

So let's review.....phase 1 is finding the site and joining because it certainly looks too good to be true after reading several of the profiles. At first you stay a standard member because its free, but as the addiction takes hold - you see there are so many interesting possibilities that you can't contact because you are not a silver or gold member - so you bite! GOTCHA! You're hooked, you spend hours reviewing profiles - looking for that possible match and sending out endless contact attempts. You tell yourself the usual denial statement "I can quit after a month - I can quit anytime I want!" And you let the silver membership expire (not once, but 3 times) but just as its ready to go, some delightful lady or couple sends you a contact or invite - so back to the dealer you go and re-up for another month still telling yourself you are fine and can recover anytime.

Phase 2 - after a few hundred contact attempts with no worthy responses, you change your profile, add more album pics and widen the search to include couples not just woman because......well you're not sure why - why not? life is short! At the height of phase 2 - you are getting responses that are less than desirable including phone numbers from outright hookers (yes! I called and was given exact prices!)

Discouraged, you tell yourself you will quit cold turkey when the membership month runs out. When it does and you've slipped into the nothingness of 'standard membership' you vow to go on-line and turn off your profile forever.........but wait......just one more little look......and what is this 'blog' thing???

And BINGO!! phase 3 of the addiction has you in its grip. Worse than any drug I've ever tried (in my younger days! [lol]) Will this addiction ever end? I hope not.

Am I the only one????????
