Taking the Plunge.

Now that DQ and I mutually understand the lack of healthy future we share together, I have made a very important decision.

I will now do the Indian online dating.

Yeah, I'm scared too. But so many people have such good things to say about it! And I've seen how happy some of my Jewish friends are with, and how much luck some of my other Indian friends have had with it, so I think I'll give it a go. At the very least, I can make fun of some of the profiles and meet some interesting characters.

Also, I just got the following email from my 15 year old cousin. Were we like this when we were teenagers?

Uhhh yah, my younger cousins (and, my effing brother is starting in on it, too) all write like this. It pisses me off to no end. It's not like they are leaving out letters to make it quicker to type..there's no convenience motive. It's just fun(??) to misspell and add extra letters and take out significant ones. Heathens. (There is no sarcasm in this comment. Writing like an idiot really is a pet peeve.)

Um, which indian dating website are you going to use? And will you share your adventures in online dating with the readers? I've flirted with the idea of going online but the potential of people I know seeing me on the website is enough to deter me...for now. Canadianbrowngirl

it's the plague of bluetooth, texting and palm pilots, etc. we are all writing in shortform, only thing is that kids don't seem to have a handle on the standard form from which the abreviations are derived.

they do it in speech, too, and well, that just makes me feel left out. i am all for creative language use, but i have seen the "model" essays and other projects pasted on middle and high school walls in my neighborhood and, umm, yeah, spelling errors are not even noted.

and some of the work is actually computer-produced ("word processed"), so, yeah, wow.

Ha, I laughed outloud when I read that online lingo. What are they teaching these kids :)

I like your story.
But you'd better take a look here to find a really DIFFERENT dating site.
Looks amazing, agree? :-)
