Ok, Im good for about 2 or 3 of these a year. Im not a big blogger....Id rather just tell you how I feel in person. But every once in a while I get the "urge".
So today class I would like to discuss Fu relationships. First, lets make it clear that this is aimed at NOBODY in particular. Once again, its just an observation that Ive made after being here for a while just like all my other blogs and stuff.
I understand that this is a social media site. And if you come here looking for love your probably more times then not going to be dissapointed. I get that! But after being on here almost 2 years I have become close with a bunch of people on here. True, its only a cyber type close, but still...I know your real name, I know the name of you kids, etc, etc. I think that it is only human nature that after talking to someone either online, on the phone, or by letter that eventually you would like to meet them in person.
Now look, I know Im a guy so right away you are thinking "Oh! He wants to meet and have a booty call!". But think about this for a minute. If we have been chatting for almost 2 years and I have NEVER "hit" on you or told you I wanted to have wild monkey sex with you, what makes you think that all of a sudden I want to drive for HOURS to get in your pants (cause non of you live close to me...LOL!)? I have some GREAT cyber friends that I have made on Fu. And I am so glad that we have remained friends all this time.
Im single and my job gives me time off to travel if I wish. And I thought this year I would try and meet some of my closest friends from Fu. And yes, they are all women. And yes, you are all very pretty. But after 2 years of chatting it should be pretty obvious that I am not just "trying to get in your pants". Im 46 years old and think I can have an intelligent conversation with a woman/friend without stripping her clothes off in my mind. LOL!
I truly enjoy the friendships Ive made here! We all have talked about very personal things with each other. I would think that you trust me and feel comfortable enough to tell me these things. Ive always shown respect to all my friends here and the things we talk about ALWAYS have remained between us.
I just feel its the normal transgression to actually want to really meet the people that you consider your friends.
Maybe Im wrong....who knows. But has our society gotten to the point that we dont trust ANYONE anymore? Yes, we all hear the horror stories of the Facebook killers. And you ARE women, so I understand your reluctance to allow just anyone in. But you trust me enough to have very deep conversations with me online. And for almost 2 years! Wouldnt it be nice to do it in person?
Those of you who know me know what I do for a living. Believe me, I would never jeapordize my career, a job Ive wanted all my life, to come to your town and do nasty things to you or stalk you or whatever creepy guys do! If you know anything, you know thats NOT who I am. Im just a "dork", "nerd", "tard", "goof", that found some really nice people on this site that I would love to actually meet. And yes, I would be nervous too, but dont you think it would be cool? We only live once folks....
I realize this is just a "game", but most of would agree, we have taken our friendship outside the game. And I think that is awesome! And I truly understand if you want to hide behind the safety of the internet and dont ever want to meet in real life. But all Im saying is think about it. Think about how long we have talked and what we have talked about. I am the same person on here that I am in real life. And my friends, I know its hard to believe, but Im always 100% open with you.
Ok, Im done ranting....I love all my Fu friends!!! You are all awesome people! And like I said before, this is not aimed at any of my friends in particular! Just something I needed to get off my chest.
