I could probably write an entire other blog on this, but I'll instead relate two specific cases where the digital world has bit me in the hindquarters.

I had been in contact with this one woman for about 2 months, e-mailing, messaging, and 3-4 phone calls. Things were going great, but one weekend I was really disappointed because we were supposed to hang out and I didn't hear from her. When I mentioned that I was disappointed, she said to me, "but we've only hung out once." It took me a second, but she was right, we had only actually hung out once. I had gotten to know her so well through the digital world that I forgot I barely knew her in person and I couldn't quite expect to ber her priority - just yet.

Another time, I had exchanged a few messages with some girl that messaged me online. She was really hot, had some interesting things to say, and a decent writer. What resulted was the worst conversation I've EVER had ... EVER! She was a straight up FOB who went from talking about sex in the kitchen to her ex-boyfriend (from 2 goddamn years ago) to her going to school for God knows what. I stayed on the phone as long as I could stand it, but I finally just blirted out, "Well,ifyouwanttomeetupsometimethencallme," and then immediately hung up.

That's why I believe in meeting people in person. Call me old school, but I never saw internet chat or anything besides hotornot as a viable tool for falling deeply in lust, not love. Let's face it, if you're ogling online you should stick to the pictures and avoid the self-induced storybook trance romance you might imagine. Let's not kid ourselves. It's great to find affinity based on nooks read, musical tastes ("I never met her, but her tastes are just like mine!... she'll really understand me blah blah blah). The only use I see in storylines of other people's profiles is that it'll make for an easy choice of what to do on the first date, because you can cross-ref their tastes with the shows coming through town, the movies coming up, etc. Aside from that, go out and party. Put down the Thoreau you've been reading and paraphrase Thorogood. Your conversation style should be like your drinks: one email, one phone call, one date. Three emails and no phone call or date, over.

I'm sorry Amy, but I don't agree that "...each tear-stained pillow is for absolutely nothing"


It sounds to me like you are cursing your scars, without seeing the patterns they form.

One of the problems with our world today, is that we place entirely too much stock in the appearance of small things, and entirely too little in the puzzles they form.

I actually wrote a song about just this issue, and it helped me through. maybe you'll find something in it too.

I don't have it recorded, but here are the lyrics:


My heart is made up of hurt shaped pieces
but I gave up trying to make up reasons.
It just is.
I trust this.

And now i don't think of what I've lost, just what I've got.

Each part came from a different heart, and I can look back along the tracks, and laugh at my mistake of thinking each break was a hurt that would never pass.
Now I know though.

I am stained glass.

Each colour in me is my history, so now i don't take my misery too literally.
It is all a part of my stained glass.
It just is.
I trust this.
