Speaking of which, I hear duty calling.
Places to go, people to see. Appointments to keep. YIPES! Time gets away!

I'll probably check back in later today. Only jumped in for a minute or two. I think Katts has a really good point too though. I doubt I'd restrict online interaction, if I had an SO. I'd just regulate it to stay within reason. And she does that I think.

Everyone enjoy your day. And watch out for those mean bedbugs. And BigFoot too! They can't be trusted.

I agree that Katts probably does a very good job.
I don't mean to imply I'd stop all of my online time, but I would HOPE I would be busy enough with my SO to really cut down on my online time. I'm sure I'd enjoy watching tv a little more....and I'd be busier going places & doing things. Seems when we have a good partner, all of our pleasures are multiplied!

Virtual emotions online, and real life emotions are not the same thing, and its not healthy to confuse them. When you have never even met the other person, you can't truly love them, or love becomes much more frivolous than it should be.


One of the things a first year psychology student will learn is the dangers of devaluing others.

Who are you to say the love someone feels for someone, even without meeting them, isn't "real life" emotion? Emotions don't have to occur only because of something in our physical presence. For the vast majority of us, Pearl Harbor, 9/11 or the Holocaust were only "virtual" events. We didn't exerience them "first hand." Is someone more of a friend because I knew them in school, even though they were a bully and I hated them? Or is a friend the person with kind words from any distance, arm's length or half a world away, when I need a kind word? I have two grandchildren I've not met yet. Are you telling me I can't love them, because I've never met them yet? I have a teenaged granddaughter I talk to on facebook from time to time. Is that "unreal" because it's through this medium, instead of a letter or a phone to cover the distance that separates us physically? I may not have a "full" picture of someone, but there is no reason I cannot fall in love with someone's spirit and words and attitude and life, just because I am not in the same room with them. And, there are no such things as "virtual" emotions. If you feel it, you feel it. That feeling is real, no matter it's source.

Personally, I believe it is a small person incapable of loving unless they have met in person.

The only time the TV comes on in our house is for sports, ( we both love sports), and a few programs during the week. We are both avid readers. It is nothing for us to be sitting on the couch with our noses into a book. LOL.

My weekends are for my husband. We play on the net, go places, and believe me, when 2 people are in a car together, the talk goes on and on. We call it our adventures. ( we never get lost).

There are different ways of looking at different scenarios as we are all intelligent enough to realize. I understand what you are saying NO. The question would be could said love persevere upon actually meeting & being together in life beyond the internet.

I am not ashamed to say I have felt love for someone I only knew over the internet & thru telephone conversations. We met & I still felt that love. Though years later, there is no longer contact, I can honestly say I still love the person in a certain way.

A person who has never felt this emotion to become familiar with it does not understand. Much like a person who doesn't love a pet doesn't understand the terrible heartbreak we suffer when we lose our pet(s).

Although it's true with good friends too! (And even when you're watching football and rooting for different teams!)

there is no reason I cannot fall in love with someone's spirit and words and attitude and life, just because I am not in the same room with them



My first 'get together' was in Lake Tahoe, with a bunch of people I'd come to love before I even met them...and the only difference was that it intensified the feelings of love and respect I'd already developed...and for stiff upper lip me, who almost never shows a lot of emotion, the goodbyes were tearful. My mom and her mom only saw each other once a year, and stayed in touch with letters; I'm glad I have the internet to stay in touch with people I care about.

I seldom bother reading the forums anymore. The discredited liberals have nothing new to blunderbuss about and have been defeated intellectually so many times that its not even fun anymore.

The whole country is onto the leftists and the rout in Congress in the 2010 election is going to be similar to the Townies marching on the Frankenstein Castle with pitchforks, scythes, and torches, all made at Pelosi, Reid, and Obama and their ilk.

Accordingly, what was needed to be said and accomplished here has worked well and its now on to other matters.

I will occasionally return here to say hello or as situations warrant. If you have any messages to send to me regarding any of these matters please dont hesitate to message me here as I will read them and reply.

Does anyone know where I can get bids to fumigate the White House in January 2013?

Sometimes it is easy to mistake the one topic for the other... as was done in this case.

It's nice to know that some people are so much more enlightened than the rest of us that they know what topics should be allowed to be discussed, and what other people should and shouldn't be allowed to say, so that "all the Awesome people" don't get offended.

I don't consider it very awesome to be so closed minded that you can't tolerate anyone who wants to discuss something you don't enjoy.

No one forces anyone else to read or participate in any discussion they don't want to.

On the other hand, the "Awesome people" are free to post their own topics. No one is stopping them.

So, as far as I'm concerned, anyone who is so "awesome" that they are an arrogant whining prima donna, who thinks they know betetter than everyone else here, is better off gone.

Who are you to say.... yada yada.. Same old stuff..

First year psychology! Please.. As if you ever got within 5 miles of a college campus!

Pearl Harbor, 9/11 or the Holocaust were only "virtual" events. We didn't exerience them "first hand."

WHAT!?!? What's that got to do with anything?? Never mind. I'd rather not know where your thought processes wander off to. Pearl Harbor, 9/11. Boy, that's a real stretch!

As if there was any of that foolishness anywhere in this conversation. Get a grip Owl. Clearly, you wouldn't understand the concept anyway.

Since the rest of your post is the standard disruptive gibberish you invariably produce, let's not waste any more time on it. Your hidden lust for conflict is once again betraying you.

Maybe we are leaving cause we don't find anywhere fun to post.
We haven't totally cancelled cause we are hoping that we will find something fun. I'm thinking we won't...
