No, she was at work, and I dont think she got so busy that she had to leave the convo, never has before, maybe 10 min between textback.

And half the posters here like to say there is no obligation to jump every time the phone beeps at you. She could have heard the phone, been in the middle of something, like a big dump, and forgot to check it when she had time to.

I posted an ad on Craiglist this afternoon for a HP printer toner cartridge that we can no longer use -- still sealed in the box. Immediately had three responses, and one guy is on his way here right now to pick it up.

I love that site. I've had three people come over to my apartment so far to pick up carloads of boxes after I've unpacked, all on the same day I posted the ad.

There must be people who just go through the "Free" pages regularly.

Exactly. Typically, if my friends and I are having a back-and-forth texting conversation, one of us will say "Okay gotta go, later" or something similar to indicate we're done texting for a while, so the other person knows that the convo is over for now and to not expecting another msg right away.

Look at it as a teaching moment. From now on, ask yourself WWSD (what would Sublime do).

But even if ti was a plausable thing (ralphing into the bowl), the two texts would still appear together
(wanna come over)
(well, whats it gonna be, I got plans to make)

Even if they were 40 minutes apart.

I don't get that. I have friends who step out all the time. None of my business as far as I'm concerned. I'm not the relationship police.
Not just that... going home with someone she JUST met isn't safe.

Maybe it's a girl thing. If I was getting wasted and hooking up with strangers, in a relationship or not, I would want a good friend to give me a reality check.

I know I can't change other people's choices, but as a friend I do feel like it's the right thing to do to call them on it if they're acting crazy. Like I did with A.

You have them when you're not in a committed relationship. If you are in a committed relationship it's no longer a one night stand, it's cheating.

"People" can do whatever they want.*I* don't want to have one-night stands and if I have a friend who I know feels the same way, I'll try to help her not make a decision she's going to regret. To each his/her own I guess.

Just to clarify, do you think your typical 50 something year old woman would have to get over a yuck factor to date someone that looked like...
Harrison Ford?
Al Pacino?
James Brolin?
Jimmy Cann?
Sam Elliot?
Chuck Norris?
I know you didn't ask me, but, in order...

Yes, yes, no, yes, yes. The only one on the list I would even consider is James Brolin, and that's just "consider." <shrug>

Or recovering.

How was everyone's NYE? Mine was pretty lame but I actually liked it that way. Not really looking forward to 2013, thirteen is an unlucky number anyway. Wish we could just skip over this year because 2014 is an election year and I'm optimistic we'll retake not only the Senate, but the state of Illinois, and we can start moving in the right direction again.
