sticky word: pathetic
maybe i’m being a snob… but i think it is a pathetic waste of time to place my entire future on an septuagenarian who lives off cheap wines and cold dinners and whose ideal way of finding a mate is through a PC monitor. urrgh. i’m having a huge case of blahs as a number of forty-something women slowly filled the net cafe I’m holed up in and started their on-line relationships with someone sitting half naked in a basement half a world away.
oh, an amusing thing though is the cultural exchange that happens in these events. funny but all parties involved get to learn something from each others’ cultural background.

[apparently her friend’s on-line with an octogenarian]
and they call me antisocial.
