Internet Dating

I had some funny thoughts this week when swimming my laps at the pool. I was thinking about the Internet dating site I have looked at infrequently the past year plus a few months since being separated.

FUNNY THOUGHT # 1 : Are all these women that say "Looking for a Long Term Relationship" really for certain? OK, I was just wondering how many of them have had less than three LTR's. Which then brings up the definition of what a "LTR" is. Is it a relationship that makes it past three years? So what is the timeline to make it as a LTR? Next, does one have a marriage ceremony to be considered a LTR, or just a live in situation like the island style "common law" marriage suffices? And lastly, how many LTR's can one have in a life time? My Grandmother, rest her soul, married like 16 times I think....go Grandma!!

FUNNY THOUGHT #2: Are all these women that say "Just Looking for Now" looking for a date or what? It reminds me of this lesbian comedian that told this joke about the typical "cool" lesbian hanging at the dyke bar with her leg crossed over the other leg and it balancing on her tip toes, her hands shoved into her pockets, and staring at all the chicks on the dance floor.....FROZEN. Get over it lesbo, this is a SEX bar, go ask a girl to dance, and please make it a dirty dance! LOL Which then reminds me what is the deal with people freaking out when people dirty dance? It is still just a dance, NOT SEX! Get over it! LOL

OK, I had other funny thoughts, however another day.



It's not a phase said...

My name is Clara and I study Advertising and PR in the University of Girona (Catalonia). We were asked to create a blog about whatever we wanted. I chose LGBT news as my topic. We were asked to get in touch with people who, in some way, were related to our blog and encourage them to comment our posts, follow us or add us on their blogrolls. As you will see it's in Catalan, but there's a translator in English which is quite reliable ^^ However, in some time I try to translate it myself ;)

I found your blog and I thought you could be interested ;)

Here's the link:

I really hope you like it.
Thanks for your time ;)

Hi, Island Dyke.
I'm a girl, here in Saipan. About to go to college. I never thought I'd find this kind of blog in Saipan, specially how it's so small and everything. I'm a closet bisexual. My family doesn't know a single thing about it but I'm pretty open to my friends and everything. I just kind of need to know I'm not alone in this island in the middle of the Pacific, you know? I'm glad there's someone out there like you. :)

Best wishes as you go off to college, you will do well.

I'm glad you found the page and it helps. I didn't come out until I was 27 and wish there had been someone there to talk to in my youth and this is why I do this...share a little truth with those needing to hear it.

Be brilliant and shine :o)
