not wanting to change the subject

I'm still having a great time reading all of your comments from the last post, so I don't feel quite ready to move on yet. Keep 'em coming! My roommate told me last night that nearly all of the guys she's chatted with through sites like LDSLinkup have tried to initiate the dirty talk. What the heck, guys? Why can't they just call 900 numbers or whatever like normal deviants?

I never had anyone do that, but the one guy that I chatted with through Linkup (about a year ago) seemed very nice and funny and all those good things. Only, he turned out not to be too honest. Or smart. His most recent ex was an acquaintance of mine and I eventually found out through a mutual friend that they had gotten back together, that he hadn't told her he was still emailing other girls, and that he was keeping me on the line as a backup in case things didn't work out. Also he had misrepresented himself to me in a lot of strange, unnecessary ways. Like he would speak about "past girlfriends" when it turns out there was actually only the one. So once the Network of Women finished connecting the dots, she broke up with him and I cut off communication. That's what you get, boys. And he still had the nerve to act all baffled by this strange turn of events.

Men should know women talk and since the LDS world is so small it's even easier to find a person who they dated. I know a guy who dated within the same circle of friends. Did he not get that they compared notes and talked to each other about it? He ruined his chances with each of them.

I was writing to a missionary, just for fun of course, and ended up meeting 4 or 5 other girls at college who were all writing to them. I had a good laugh with the last one, but I think she was quite heartbroken. He had taken us each on a date the week or two before he left, made out (or tried in my case) with each and asked us all to wait. Can you sleazy? Good letters, though. He was hilarious.

Did he become an engineer? It sounds like a far-too-practical approach to sociality.

I think I'm way too grouchy and bitter to objectively give an opinion about online dating. The weird thing about that is, the poison isn't brewing because of personal experience, but because of that of a lot of friends and people around me!
