So, it's been a minute since my last post. I just can't write to be writing. I have to be inspired, so I can give you quality, as opposed to quantity. Anyway...I was inspired by a discussion on Twitter, the other night.
During the course of the usual late-night fuckery, the question came up of, "have you had, or would have sex with someone you met on Twitter?" This sparked a bit of a friendly, courteous debate. Those of us who know, know those are few and far between, on social networking sites.
Initially, most people's responses to the question, predictably, were ranging from "no" to "hell no." Understandable, since no one wants to appear desperate.
So, you know I had to play "Devil's Advocate..."
I said that all of us, at one time or another, have had sex with someone we didn't know all that well. One-Night Stands, Booty Calls, and what have you, have touched most of us, in one way, or another. So, my question was, what really is the difference between meeting someone on the 'net, or meeting someone at the club/bar, and fucking them?
The responses (from males AND females) varied, from "people on the 'net are crazy" to "desperate people find love on the 'net." Last time I checked, these were "real life" issues, as well. Yoou don't know what you're getting, when you meet someone. This is why, when entering into a possible relationship with someone, in real life, or from the Net, we need to take our time. Really get to know the person. That's the way it was supposed to go down, from the beginning.
When you really get down to it, we take the same risks, often getting the same results. The person in the business suit that you met at the supermarket, or that nice bistro you like to go to, can be just as likely to be a psycho as the person you meet on the internet. It's all in how you prepare and cultivate your initial meeting & develop your friendship.
I'm not ashamed to say I've had sex with someone I met on the net. They were local, I got a good feel of who they were, before anything jumped off, and I protected myself when it did jump off. I would have done the same thing with anybody else I would potentially get nekkid with.
A different question is, "can you fall in love with someone from the net?" Again, I don't see why not, if you put in the work of getting to know the person. I will admit that the chances are slimmer, and you do have to put more effort into it. But, how many times have we seen success stories of people that met on the internet, and are happily married, to this day. So, I guess it could happen.
I guess what I'm saying is, while the internet carries a negative stigma, when it comes to romance, I wouldn't totally rule things out.
I would love to hear your experiences with meeting people from the 'Net. Don't be shy. You won't be judged in this house...and as always, it may not be correct, but...
THAT'S MY LOGIC!
