Shamrock and Internet Dating

Come on let's face the facts the internet is mainly used for three things. 1. Porn 2. Internet dating (myspace included) 3. Blogging(which I think is becoming very popular outlet). I only say these things because I'm guilty of alot of these crimes. I routinely "procure" music, movies, and programs at a steady clip. I on occasion view pornographic material on the net....what!...? But, BUT I refuse to have anything to do with Myspace! Plus I don't need internet dating services I got me a nice lil momma at the ShamrockCave. "What's your point Shamrock?" You ask? Well yesterday the Shamrock Princess calls me up from her work and asks me if I would like to go out for a steak. "Of course!" was my reply. But there was more to the free meal that I was to enjoy. Friends from work would be coming. Normally I don't mind company at dinner I usually enjoy it. But for some reason Princess was acting weird. We were gonna "meet up with" two other girls from work so that the four of us could check out the other girls "Myspace date". Needless to say I thought this was sad...so very sad. But I was hungry and what could go wrong huh? So on we went to the steakhouse. When we got there I was introduced to both ladies. The first had the energy of a retired cheerleader in fact I think she was an ex-cheerleader. Very bubblely and personable. Instantly annoying. We will call her "C". The other lady was a very sweet young lass with a great heart and personality. Now pay attention cuz I'm showing you all something. What I basically said was the young lady is " Rubenesque". Please do not think I am being mean or cruel this girl is really a sweetheart. SO fast forward to the "Date". Well the three of us split from her and walk towards the building and I start in on my rant about how myspace is filled with child molesters and social deviants when we see him. Now the first thing outta my mouth is "See he looks like a child molester". People this guy really did look like a troubled soul. He was still in uniform which chaps my ass plus he had the telltale "red nose" and bloodshot eyes of a hard drinker plus the added look of the slighly hunched over shoulders which screams to me self confidence issues with a hint of depression. Now up until this point I'm just here for the food and Princess. Well the sweetheart is still waiting in her car. She finally walks in and from what she said she saw him and immediately made the same decision that "We" had come up with. So she said "Hello" he blankly looked at her and said nothing so she walked in. We all sit down and the ladies start into the dissection of this man which I really wasn't paying attention too. But what I did hear was that this guy told her via Myspace that he wanted to get deployed overseas and I quote" To kill some of those MFers". Plus he was up to his eyeballs in debt and was basically looking for that special someone to help him out of that mess and take long walks on the beach. My advice to her was to get the FUCK OFF Myspace and do....do....do...? I dunno..something else! Look I know that alot of people are on Myspace. And they use that power for good and I'm glad but I hear way to much evil shit about that place due to the fact that Shamrock Princess's lil sis is on there and is only 16 and she get some really ruthless and graphic things sent or written/posted to her. So in closing thank you AL Gore for inventing the internet because without it I would have almost no life whatsoever!





P.S. I love You Tube

Myspace gives me hives. My cousin has a myspace page with his band and I get twitchy whenever I go there to see when he's playing in town. Sigh.

I'd NEVER pick up a guy from Myspace though. No, no, no. I don't care HOW desperate I am... The other one that scares me is Craigslist.

And that YouTube...I started to laugh but then at the end I was all "That's so sad. So very very sad."

I’m down with uses #1 and #3 but can’t get excited about internet dating because the people I know who do it are all single for a reason (I’ll just leave it at that, you know the types). While rumor has it that normal people also use internet dating, I'm still waiting for confirmation of same.

And now, I'm off to You Tube, the enemy of employers worldwide....

Hey man- I'm gonna have to go ahead and go against the grain here and say myspace is awesome. Of course, my profile is set to private and only viewable by my friends. That being said, it is great for keeping up with those friends. If you don't want people sending you messages on myspace, set the damn thing to private. this is what you should tell the sis. Of course, teenage girls don't listen, and thus are victims of the 50 year old perverts out there.

Reason #1- I don't use the internet for, but am all for the freedom to do so. Reason #2- I'm with Pamela, on the internet dating thing as you already know, btw don't those reasons sound familiar bud? Looks like I'm not crazy after all. Reason #3 of course is obvious. Myspace, in my opinion, should not be thrown in with internet dating. That would be eharmony.

Myspace gives me a headache too!...Although I will say that the internet is fun sometimes to just entertain and have fun don't take it too seriously.

I do know a couple normal people that have met that way...but like a bar not a great place to meet people.

Now that said for those of us that are divorced and single parents and not much if any single time to get out and about sometimes fun just to chat online. I have a million friends (married friends) and while I enjoy their company sometime fun just to chat online.

I know your gonna give me crap about this....but with my personality its hilarious some days. I must confess the first year after I got divorced I did go on a couple of coffee during the day OMG OMG!!! really really hilarious stuff.

AND some of the guys that say they are in the military and what their jobs are make me laugh So dam hard!

One day I should tell you the story of this woman (acquaintance) whom met this "SF" guy off the internet and married him 2 weeks later. Not even close!!! Not even still in the military AWOL!!! Some women are you silly.

Okay I am ready for the on slaught...bring it on!

I can't discount online date. A friend met her husband online while another has found the love of her life via the internet. For me it opens up another avenue of "what if". And yes people lie online. How easy to don an internet mask. But I've met a few guys face to face who have their own masks. And yes, I have my own mask.

I guess you have to figure out if you're seeing the online mask or not...and if you're wearing your own online mask. Because damned if my mask didn't make an appearance in a conversation I was having. I had to physically stop typing, step away from the laptop and ask myself who was having the conversation. Fantabulous. I can pinpoint the exact moment. Sigh. Stupid mask. It was the first time she had made an appearance. And I know exactly why.

Then again...what the heck do I know? But I'm still going to keep my keyboard far from myspace.

That boy should try out for the NY ballet. Assuming he's not already a member. But what was he holding? It looked like one of those poles for a swimming pool net thinger.

I've tried internet dating and I actually met a very gorgeous bloke that way. It didn't work out.. but he was as normal as anyone else.

When you live in a country where you don't have any interest in the natives, what the hell's left?

Send me a frog, already.

I'm guilty of MySpacing, but like Jake use it for my personal family and friends only and for my author promotions.

My sister fell in love w/ her hubby online and it still freaks me out to think about it. That just creeps me out too much.

It's the least I can do for a couple of up-and-coming stars. Very few wash out of the course after SUT so it's probably only a matter of time before your on a team. When I was teaching SUT there, I saw many quit because they thought that was what SF was all about. I don't want that to happen to you; we need you in the ranks. You may not get the best job in the Army like I have(Sr. Commo on the best ODA), but the position waiting for you is better than anything else out there.

P.S. I had already written the article before BF posted his airborne tribute, I was just waiting to post to give my Liberty post some more top time. You were fresh in my head when I noticed you were not on his list.
