I suspect the internet is making us all lazy. I suspect too many out there are no longer "present" to real life and who is around them enough to reach out. I suspect they would rather run back to their computer and play games on the dating sites and live in a fantsy world with hundreds of strangers who will never know the truth about them. God help us. If there were no internet most of us would be in contact on a more realistic level with those around us. And why do so many men flirt with those so far away? Nothing will come of it! I wish the Internet would go away and let us be real again. Amen*

The cyber highway has put me in touch with great people, I may never have met if it wasn't for this technology. Like Rob says, penpals have gone on for ages.

You are exceptionally intelligent, that is obvious, but I disagree, humbly, regarding long distant romances. I have had a relationship with a beautiful lady from Rio and dated a wonderful lady from Mexico City for over a year. A bit out of the way? Absolutely. A pain at times? Yes. But, to do something out of the norm adds a heightened sense of excitement, or so I think, besides that long distant friend might just be the one - you know the infamous ONE. By the way, they flirted with me, not the other way around, and I don't regret a single trip. If someone from Paris or Vancouver or Dallas or wherever wants to meet you, why not? What's the problem? Internet dating doesn't make you lazy. Maybe its lazy writing an email, but its work getting out and having a dinner date, or whatever. If all one is looking for is an electronic existence, well maybe you are right, but if you are trying to meet someone, the Internet only completes one small step ... speaking, seeing, touching, is still the human activity and is not made any easier by however many pixels one posts. Anyway, cute lady that you are, thanks for posting your thoughts and enjoying those that follow. Cheers.

Well apples you might just get you retreat house in n.y.c. if you would get unlace and get off the net and get some real human contact. No you have to ask people on the net to help you build it. The very same net you wish would go away. Let you make the first move and get and stay off the net. the thing you seem to hate the most.

I just had to post a comment on your Blog Apples I for one had a wonderful marriage with someone I met over the internet from afar- something can come of it if you want it to. Our expectations about people can become unrealistic at times-but I know there are many people out there who want just the same as everyone does- love and affection with the right person. You have to give as much as you want to take- so if you want a man to leave his number then you leave yours. The world has changed so much that most men wouldn't have a clue to what woman want- women wanted equality and when they got it- then they bitched because men didn't fawn all over them. Some woman don't want dorrs opened for them or men to be polite- so what is a man to do. We are not lazy because we look at internet dating- we are making the most of what we have and hope to have I hope you can stop being so insular and realise just because someone lives in another country does not preculde them from having a relationship with you.

Apples - I've got to hand it to you - and say - that you do ask some good questions - and appreciate the fact that you don't censor or delete those posts which disagree with you. (At least - it appears that way.) There's something to be said for that. I do agree with you - that people need to Get Out, locally - and do their best to "See" what they've been blessed with - and relate on a Realistic Level (like you said) - make eye contact - and get off of the Internet a few days a week. However - that doesn't mean that these people you've been communicating with on here - are not Real. And it doesn't mean that you shouldn't broaden your scope - if you're not having luck in your own backyard. And whenever you meet someone from a different area - different lifestyle - you learn something. If I weren't Lazy, tonight - I would be at the tail end of Happy Hour - having the same old conversation with the same old people - looking at the same old guys at the bar - but instead, just had a very Enlightening Conversation with a Cool Dude. Not Bad. I'll worry about the distance, later.

Thank God there is Internet and it's here to stay, for the better or the worst... Adios bars, alcohol, cigarette smoke, drunken people, horrible noise making any conversation impossible... Our society is changing because of the technology, the people remain the same. Have nice day !

People please dont pick on me... I am intuitive and I can see for 98%, will get nowhere. 98% of guys write from FAR distances... its improbable to connect that way. Even my friends who are down the street or in my town dont have time to connect all the time. We are so busy. THAT is the biggest reason online does not really work. Its just good entertainment for a moment. 90% of men who write are also, dare I say it: just not sophisticated. They are just not interesting. Only in PERSON can someone be seen interesting. But a computer email...dullsville most of the time. Now I am impressed with a few statements from the ones who responded to my blogs, however, no matter how cool they are, WE WILL NEVER REALLY CONNECT OR MEET IN PERSON. Thats the story folks. P.S. hope you dont mind my blogging the world with my opinions. But you see... I plan to become an Enlightened Master someday. Just practicing. THANK YOU.

I agree with why are men contacting us that are so far away. I have men contact me from Europe all the time - how is that going to work?? I don't understand why you are always talking about how Internet stinks, waste of time, 98% of the men suck on the Internet, blah blah. Yet. You are on all the time. If you hate it so much why don't you just spend more time at your church functions you discussed? I am not trying to give you a hard time, but why are you always online and writing stuff if you think it is all a waste?

I don't agree that the internet makes us lazy. Many people, myself included, have a very hectic lifestyle that minimizes ones ability to socialize like the average person. When we do have the time we don't know anyone..LOL! I think it is something additional to use to have more accessibility, such as robtest stated. However, even though this is the internet, if a real life relationship is to occur then you have to use your own skills to keep the connection

Is it really making us lazy, or does it provide us with an additional tool to find something that we are looking for??? Certainly, it should not be used to replace other methodologies, but it does provide for a certain level of interaction, which many may find satisfaction enough. I guess it is up to each indivual to make sure their potential partners are after the same goals... On the subject of distance, who is to say "what becomes of it" ??? Penpals has been enjoyed by people geographically dispersed for eons!!
