Almost cant even call me that... to lurk, one must at least come in and read posts... sighzzz.... cant even manage that on a regular basis.

Just letting you know I am still alive and will pop back in a day or two.


The putor, just doesnt hold the same "mystique" it used too when Fred and I were an online thing. hummm... a question to put forth to others maybe ? Once your "online" becomes your "in person" will the need for the computor diminish in this new phase of romance ?

Hi Charlene Yes I understand what you are saying. I used to love to get online and chat. We no longer have the need to chat, so now I only go to the message boards here on ivillage, play euchre on yahoo and of course to look up certain things.

I will say though, that I do get on here to the boards 3 times a day. I use this as a way to pass the time when I get on my stationary bike.

Hope things are going well for you and Fred...take care!

Hey there Charlene!!! Gald to see you! Lurker or not, we are glad to have you when you can get over. So, how are things over there with you and Fred? how did the reception/wedding go??? Was not sure what you had. lol

Personally, the thing with taking things in person, I do not think I would not get rid of the computer entirely. Email would still be used, I think. It does lessen your time I would think, but it depends on how serious things get and how much time you have after the fact. giggles.


Glad to see you girl@!

Hi,

I have to respond to this - I am a computer addict and chat addict so no man would tear me away from either for long - although thankfully I use a computer 8 hours a day at work (I'm a Web site developer) and so I get my fix there and can let go at home if I needed to. I'm just lucky I've been able to translate my passion for computers into a career.

That's just my 2 cents. ;o)

I was a chat addict at one time as well. It's not my husband who tears me away from the chatting. This is something that we both decided would be best for both of us. I also believe that Charlene and her husband have done the right thing by not using the computer to talk with others unless they are relatives and friends to both of course ( I'm assuming that they don't from what she posted).

My husband works with computers all day and we have quite a set up here at home as well. But we don't chat with others anymore. Too many relationships get into trouble this way.

Just wanted to state that no man was "tearing" me away from my computer. I have no need to be chatting with ppl on my computer anymore. The only ppl I chat with are my children when they are away for school.
