Is she real??

Does anyone “look” for companions on-line? How do you know if they are really who they say there are?

 I’ve been corresponding to a young lady I met on Twitter. It’s only been a week or two but I am very attracted to her. Of course the only thing I can go on is the pictures she sends me and the letters we write each other. Now nobody likes to get hurt right? Well I’ve been sharing some very personal information about my past and some intimate feelings I’ve developed towards her.

Now lately I’ve been thinking: “What if she’s somebody else?” “What if she’s a man?” “Maybe she has a bunch of Boy Friends or even a husband?”. I wouldn’t really know would I? The world is full of all kinds of people. Anonymity and keeping your info private is all you hear about when it comes to meeting people on-line.

Now I understand that most of those warnings have to do with money. Bank accounts, Credit Cards, Phone numbers. That sort of thing. But what about having your heart broken? How does one protect themselves from that? Just how much should I share?

Honesty and truth is the most important thing when it comes to relationships. If a person is hiding behind an email address or twitter user name how can there be real honesty? Twitter and Face-book do the best they can validating users but let’s face it. It’s really not that hard to create a fake account.

So do I share my heart and personal life and hope I won’t get burnt? Or do I just keep my distance and share only what she needs to know? If so, what’s the point? A could really use some input on this.

What a World

I’ve got the world on a string, sittin’ on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life, I’m in love!
I’ve got a song that I sing
I can make the rain go, anytime I move my finger
Lucky me, can’t you see, I’m in love
Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold the string
I’d be a silly so and so, if I should ever let go
I’ve got the world on a string, sittin’ on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life, I’m in love
Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold the string
I’d be a silly so and so, if I should ever let go
I’ve got the world on a string, sittin’ on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world
Man this is the life
And now I’m so in love!

Finally Free of Windows!

After running  Windows OS on all of my machines since 1996 I finally said goodbye forever! I’m been installing and running windows since windows 3.1. I’ve had them all. Windows 3.1. (Not really an OS) Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000 Windows XP, Windows 7 Oh wait. I never installed or used Windows 8 cause it was junk. Recently Microsoft has tried to stuff windows 10 down my throat. I have had enough of this shit! So I formatted all my machines and installed Linux or one of the Ubuntu flavors on the really old machines. No more Windows. I’m free at last and I’m thrilled about it! Best think I’ve ever done. I really like Linux Mint Cinnamon. It runs great on my netbook 1.2ghz Atom processor. My other clunkers are Pentiums. I have found Linux Mint comes with everything I need for my office and more. So if you’ve had enough of the Microsoft Monopoly do not hesitate switching to the  Free of charge Linux, Debian or Ubuntu Operating systems.

 

Scammers

The real me

WOW! I can’t believe how many “scammers” are online. I’ve been hitting the dating sites and chatting with people on Twitter and Facebook. I can’t find one girl that is real. They all have some story and try to get money from me. Some of the stories they come up with are amusing. The problem is they all have the same one. They all start with “I am looking for an honest man” then they want to tell you about how their men cheated on them. Then they send you sexy pictures. Some of them send nudes and then try to get you to pay for their internet by buying them an Iphone card. Some want Amazon gift cards or other gift cards. The best part is they will tell you they never asked for money. Has anyone seen the movie with the prostitute doing sexual favors but they don’t take cash? These so called girls think they invented this shit! News flash ladies. Women have been selling themselves since the beginning of time.

And how does this “honesty thing” work?? I have to be honest but she can lie as much as she wants? I don’t get it? It’s OK for you to try and sell your body to me? Sell pictures, services or whatever? But I have to be honest and trustworthy.The internet is porn polluted! Why would any man in their right mind pay for a nude? The bad news is if there really is an honest woman out there I’m never going to trust them anyway. Relationships are built on trust. Starting out with even the smallest of lie’s will make me run to the nearest exit!

 

Romance Online

Is it possible to find romance online? I suppose so. I think the odds are against us. Lonely people like me seeking love online put ourselves in a dangerous situation. We want love and are willing to do anything to get it. We become irrational and begin making decisions based on our emotions. If this happens there are just too many “predators” out there.

First of all let’s look at the odds. Am an old “Horse Player” and I love looking at odds. For starters we really don’t have a lot of data on online relationships. Yes we’ve all seen the commercials with the cute couples claiming they met their soul mate online. This is to get you to sign up for whatever site is being advertised. It’s a great story but lets look at the facts.

The odds of you meeting your soul mate online are higher then winning the state lottery. First of all, what are the odds of you meeting someone you like and are compatible with? Think about. There’s like 3 million or more people online. Now lets say for argument sake we only include people that really want to meet someone. Right off the bat that number is cut in half. Now, how many people just want a one night stand? I would say at least half of that number.

Next we only want to count the straight people looking for love. Are you with me? Now we want to narrow our search down to people we are compatible with. Yes! Age Does matter Ladies!

What could I possibly have in common with a woman 30 years younger than me? Other then sex? What do we talk about? and what man wouldn’t desire to be with younger woman to sleep with? Soft firm breasts. Smooth silky legs. But More importantly a vagina that actually gets wet! Cut that number in half again.

Now let’s eliminate all the people that don’t even live in the same state as you. Sure you can tell yourself love won’t get in the way of that, but I can tell you that’s a bunch of crap! Unless you have the the money and time away from your job it’s not going to work out. What do you do when they tell you I’m not leaving. I was fired. Then what? This is real life folks. It’s not a movie.

Next we need to weed out all the dishonest people? Men portraying women. Women portraying men. These predators are very good at what they do. You’ll swear you’ve found “the love of your life!

I spend a lot of time online and get interviewed by a a lot of women saying the same exact thing. “I’m looking for an honest man” “I was really hurt by my husband or boyfriend” “I just need a man that will love me for who I am”. Frankly I think they are all in the same union but that’s just me.

Your not going to find love swapping pictures, nudes, dick pics or whatever else you do online. I found the prettiest girl I’ve seen in 20 years. I would melt just looking at her pretty face. I began acting like a 15 year old in heat. I did some things that I’m just too embarrassed to admit.

The most important thing in a relationship is the “connection” and the sharing of one another other. To look into each others eyes and see them smile. The intimacy. The “connection”.

So what are the odds of meeting your soul mate online? I’d say 2.6 million to one.

That’s just my opinion…….I could be wrong

I think she’s real!

Thanks for all the advice from everyone. I almost “blew it” and scared her off. I was accusing her of catfishing and wanting money. I was acting like a detective questioning a suspect of a homicide. A complete A-hole!


I mean she was just too good to be true! Young and Beautiful. What did she want with me? Money? My social security number what? Then we both got mad and she blocked me on Twitter and so did I. That was it! She was pissed at me  and I was convinced her attentions were all wrong.  

Welp, two days went by and she sent me a text by accident. I knew it was for someone else so I replied “You text the wrong man” She replied “Don’t start! Your getting on my nerves” I text back: “I’m just letting you know you text the wrong person. Maybe it’s important. I don’t know??” that was followed by a 2 hour chat session.

Now we are both in-love again. For now anyway. We are going to start over and see how it goes. Now I’m no expert on this online stuff and meeting people. I can tell you this…I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in a very long time!
