Good Morning Grace....<quoted text>
I didn't see this post YESTERDAY, somehow......
otherwise I would have replied.
I think I am the person you are referring to in
am I right?
Furthermore, I think you are being unfair,
transferring blame to ME for a post by you, which offended
Why were you not straight up and to the point
instead of saying your post was directed towards 'me'
via RM Quinn?
Let's tackle this 'honestly' and head on,
instead of innuendo and drawing others in..
You & I were posting 'here' and in DIRTY NELLIE'S
waaay back even with an entirely different group
of people > Vee: M04: MH: FRANKO: FALCON, LA SUNSHINE etc..
and that history must stand for something.
Newer posters now
NOTHING in the world wrong per se, with that..
as, Topix [by it's very nature] is always evolving..
Yes American friends here ARE setting up a meeting,
and yes geographically You and I live close
enough to do the same and chat on the phone.
Allow for the fact that we are all different..
and I appreciate those differences..
I, personally, am not for meeting up with
cyber friends, I like to keep it
how it is 'cyber' friendship... which I DO hold in special regard.
am I SO wrong in that?
maybe I am the odd one out here -
but... at least,
I'm being honest.
so be it.. it's 'me' warts an all! as the saying goes.
Still, at the same time, I am delighted for those who DO
wish to meet, and wish them EVERY success..
I appreciate that we are all different,
and 'I' would also like the freedom to enjoy
that precious difference.
as you have brought it out into the open, then yes,
I was referring to you.
Going back to when we first communicated on offbeat, along
with the posters you mention, four of which I have had the
pleasure of speaking to via telephone, I asked you for your
number, as I was able, at that point in time, to 'phone for
one hour Internationally, free of charge, covered by my rental
What a pity Grace, that you didn't expand on your reasons why
you chose not to give me your number then...I would have respected
the reasons you so thoroughly explained this morning...instead of
which you told me 'I have somebody staying with me at the moment and
it isn't convenient'....I suggested it again, and I can assure you,
not something I make a habit of when once turned down....same scenario.
As a matter of interest, I am not one myself for speaking on the telephone, I am not a free agent, I have a lot of work to do with the animals, and of course my home and husband, and I like my evening for relaxation, not saying others do not have busy lives, but making a point of saying, that I am not over fond of chatting on the 'phone.
I do, however, think there is a great deal to be learnt of a person in the voice, and I was meaning as an introductory call...nothing more.
I too wish all those who are meeting up, a wonderful time, I have
no resentment in me!
Wishing you a good day my cyber friend.
