keeping in the valentine -or is it cupid (sic)- spirit...

Cyber socializing: even better than the real thing
by Luciano Pimentel

In this day and age, one does not have to put up with the routines and hassles of going out, dressing up or even putting a brave face on anymore. One can stay in and, from the cozyness of one's own home, one can mingle with one and all! Chat rooms, instant messaging, webcams, message boards... even the old stand-by, the e-mail (with sufficient pictorial attachments - whether it is doctored or not is up to you!) - all of these means are safer and may be even far more pleasant ways to socialize! Safer too for few hassles are involved - although it is debatable if indeed such dalliances are truly more casual than the old-fashioned ones... It all depends on the individual really...

Fact is, interaction on the web can be taken as seriously as live and in the flesh interaction. And this can be seen all across the palette of cyber-offerings... as that of human emotions. Message boards routinely see veritable hatred develop and rise sharply between opposing posters championing diametrically conflicted viewpoints on any given topic... Likewise, chat rooms are often the unceremonious virtual grounds of those first few sparks between posters who recognize in each other a kindred spirit. But it does not make the emotions involved any less real necessarily speaking... and any sudden break-up any more "casual" per say either! Disappointment is disappointment! It all boils down to the degree to which the participants have immersed themselves into these unusual proceedings... These are less and less "unusual" though, for the bar scene is now splitting -pretty evenly it would appear too- the dating scene with cyber-encounters. One leads to the other really… A fine collaboration of sorts…

On the other hand, for the true conversationalist, these proceedings can be even better to dig out the truth faster... Think about it - in an instant messaging situation, even with a webcam on, the fluff factor is minimalized - in favor of substance. One is forced to actually listen (or read) if the person has anything worthwhile to say. Once that is confirmed -for it isn't always- the expert conversationalist can take control of the chat situation and, by asking the right questions at the right time, get to know the other person better in fifteen minutes than he would have in several dates maybe! One cannot peer into another's soul when preoccupied with the all-important (not) task of winning a lengthy tongue duel... Not much is learned then, aside from the value of the kisser maybe…! Conversation is the key in the courtship stage – and it is no coincidence that IM providers call these things “conversations” …

Thank you my dear lady! :)
 
And, in a spirit of continuity here now, a couple of BREAK UP SONGS... that run the gamut from haunting melody to perfectly commercially fine-tuned riff... ;)

==============================

Fade Into You Lyrics by Mazzy Star (Amazing how this song got CLONED by amalgam artist SIA(Sao+Bia)'s own "Breathe Me")

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew
I think it's strange you never knew

Just For You Lyrics by Lionel Richie

Golden days
Night was play
Pain was all a world away
We went to school
We learned the rules
We trusted all they had to say

Then life took a turn
We all had to learn
And we cant go back again

And my heart is breaking
Just for you
Just for you
And my arms are open
Just for you
Just for you
Just for you

God was God
And dreams were dreams
Life was all pecan ice cream
Truth was true
And lies were lies
And we thought love would never die
But the world moved on
My illusions gone
And I don't know who to blame

And my heart is breaking
Just for you
Just for you
And my arms are open
Just for you
Just for you
And these tears I'm crying are for you
Just for you
Just for you

I'm looking for protection
Give me shelter from the storm
I just hope this light inside me
Keeps me strong

And my heart is breaking
Just for you
Just for you
And my arms they're open
Just for you
Just for you
And these tears I'm crying are for you
Just for you
Just for you

Just for you
Oh my heart is breaking
And my arms are open
Oh these tears I'm crying are just for you

Oh yeah


(Really... yeah! LOL).

Lionel is right though - God Is God... not was... IS... (reminds me of a song titled exactly that - "GOD IS GOD"... used to see it often on Bravo Videos ... Anybody has any idea who sang it though...? For the life of me, I can't recall anymore...!).

Lionel has finally recuperated well from all that Dancing on the Ceiling... (lol). Alas for him, now his heart is breaking over... whomever! Still, it is better than his last relationship - she was practically breaking his bones instead of his heart...! Poor guy can't buy a break... oops, wrong choice of word association there! LOL... Somebody stop me - I am in whimsical overdrive mode here...

/Oops - the phone... /

Hello...?
Is it me you're looking for...?

Drats - Lionel's suing my a$$...

*LOL*
(Here's hoping reality won't equal my fiction here...!) ;)
 
In my defense, I guess I could pretend that THE TEMPTATIONS made me do it...? *LOL*

Lest that would automatically be THE PRETENDERS instead...?

Ok - enough now!!!

;)
 
Well, now, Luciano, I don't know! I mean, Oh, Yes, I'm the Great Pretender! HAHAHAAAHH...Oh. Wait. No, I'm not! I'm A Wanderer!
Gotcha! ROFLMAO!!!!!
((((((((((LUCIANO))))))))))

Ahhhhhhhhh, I needed that!:D:D:D Have I told you, today, that I cherish you so much? If I have, too bad. If not, I CHERISH YOU, Luciano *hug*

Have a great night, sweetie!

Love,
Wolf Singer
