Day 20....Lookin for answers....

are we here at AdultFriendFinder looking for friends....lovers.......casual sex......answers to our questions in life? or are we falling prey to the postmodern form of interpersonal co-mingling?....rather than face-to-face communications, we reach out thru the ether to touch one another electronically.

so tell me...whaddya tink?

Well, I am here looking for friends and lovers but the fact is that at the rate I am going it will be ten years before anyone wants to meet. I had the belief that the people on here were looking to meet people also but many just want to chat. My initial gold membership is about to expire and I really don't know if it is worth it to continue as a paying member.

I think that many people are so enamored with this form of communication that they won't meet people.

My humble opinion

I, also, believe that there are a lot of people on this site who never really have the intentions of meeting anyone. They chat...and they tease...and they lie. We are not all like that. I think I have had pretty good results from this site. I have actually met 8 people, in person. All of which have been great people. Some are lovers...all are friends.
I think we use whatever means are available to connect with someone, anyone. I choose not to look at it as "falling prey to the postmodern form of interpersonal co-mingling". It's a tool.
This way is maybe easier for those who aren't social butterflies. It's safer than meeting in a bar. It's a way to see if there is any chemistry without the awkwardness of face to face meetings. If you decide you don't like someone after talking to them, you can just disappear into the black hole that is the INTERNET!!

There are two kinds of people on these sites. Fake people and real people. Dealing with the first teaches us to appreciate the second. It usually doesn't take long to figure out which are jokers, players, nut jobs, crazies, liars, immature babies and miserable human beings.......and once we get past all the bull and fuss, we are left with real people.....those who are capable of being friends, lovers and allies.

If we meet even one new friend from this site, I think the time invested was worth it.

That's just my opinion...for what it's worth.
