Q: "Why don't you believe in love anymore?"
A: I guess I should have written that better. I do believe love exists, and of course there are different kinds of love - Family/Kids/Pets/Friends vs. Romantic. I know true love is real, but what I was trying to say was that the kind of love that is supposed to happen in "romantic love" has somehow been [partly] destroyed in our society. It is a selfish, self-centered world hell-bent on instant gratification and the propensity to "bail" when one becomes "unhappy". There is a lack of commitment and sacrifice. I see it everywhere, and unless you live in a fantansy world, you know its true. My problem is that me finding someone outside of this human condition in our present era is statistically very low, and the chances of heartbreak are very high. I haven't given up, but I know the odds are against me. I also don't want someone with me (and vice versa) just because they don't want to be lonely. People can be very deceiving and will sometimes go to great lengths to get what they want. I'm just being realistic, that's all. God can do anything though, so I'm just trusting in Him.
Q: "Why do you think all of these people are "looking for something" on your blog? Isn't that a little paranoid?"
A: Well...perhaps, but one of them is my ex husband's buddy who was feeding my ex info from my blog during our divorce (I know that for a fact out of the ex's mouth), and now that all of that is over and my ex is remarried, it is beyond me what he is going to my blog to find out. I actually have a suspicion, but I can't say publicly. I seriously doubt he "just wants to know what I'm up to." The others are old coworkers that I was not particularly close to and never even told about my blog. They obviously saw it up on my computer screen at work and started visiting, but I can tell you right now neither one of them give a rat's ass about my life - and I can't help but wonder if there is an ulterior motive - especially when one signs on from across one part of the country one minute - then the other minutes later from the opposite side of the country. Obviously some talking (gossiping?) going on there. WEIRD. Sorry if that's offensive, guys, but it is weird to me. So, anyway, I thought I would say hello to them. :-) No answer of course.
Q: How do you know when someone goes to your blog??
A: That's my secret, sorry. ;-) Remember, the internet is NOT a secure place.
