You've got to have something to offer as well. Chaining up is all well and good, but by itself it's lacking that special "something".

The bonus I get with my wife chained up is the peace and quiet.

Yeah, they involve a cattle prod, a few contractor size Hefty Bags, a Sawz-All and a roll of duct tape.

If your personality doesn't translate well to the internet--

Why do you want to have relationships through the internet?

Don't you want someone to know and appreciate the real you, in all it's original language glory?


The insight that "my personality doesn't translate to the Internet" is a huge reason I created this thread. I just realized it a few days ago and I immediately posted it in the thread below (when I had realized it).

Friendships/Relationships and Internet Communications

I may have never known about that if I hadn't have started that thread. Do you see where the power of these threads?

After a few days of contemplating all of that, I've decided to give up on the private messaging out of the blue game (outside of an extraordinary situation). It's not for me.

Thattaboy!

If you can't win the game, don't play.

That philosophy has definitely got me nowhere in life.

That's a very special type of winning. You don't come across them often. They're like the fabled double cream Oreos.

As I posted recently, my personality doesn't translate to the Internet. Perhaps it's just out of my control. Then again, I'm not trying to be liked here. I'm trying for the opposite. Being disliked gets a lot better input. After you try to be disliked for long enough, it could wreak havoc on your personality. That's the kind of insights that come out of nowhere from these threads. It's far better than any psychoanalysis I've experienced.


I just realized I have some kind of split personality. I've been trying to be disliked online (to get more feedback) for so long, I have an online persona that is nothing like my true self.

That's why my ex-girlfriend from my online relationship said I sound completely different on the phone than I do online. That's why after around 10 hours of talking on the phone, we never had any problems on the phone. All of our problems were with online communications. Did I make a mistake in dumping her based on only online communications? There's a lot more to that story than I can ever tell.

Now that I'm aware of this I think I can take care of the problem. But, my desire to be disliked must have carried over to everything I do online (unconsciously).

It goes back to the mean streets of GLP. I started there in 2005. I still remember my first thread there, pure therapy. Nothing else. I quickly learned that being disliked was the best way to get help. Then, the split personality started to form...

I'll have to write a short story about this.

I came from GLP, too. It's a small world. I think when you get real like just now, it's real. It reads honest. I dig that, so thank you for sharing.

I don't want to know what 'kittens' is code for, but I'm not opening.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me with an older than dirt "I've got kittens" ploy, shame on all of us.
