Cyber Love… I Think NOT!!!

| | Comments (0)

Is it just me or do u feel the men of the millennium or for better clarification men that fall between ages of 25-38 have replaced normal one-to-one human on human communication with that special someone with the current ever-so-popular technology based form! i.e. Texting, instant messaging and emailing.

Now no disrespect to you 40 plus-ers, I stop at the age of 38 only because I've found (have a 40 year old sister who will vouch for me) in the exception of a rare few (men & women alike) beyond that age bracket just can't seem to get the system down. I mean you don't understand the smh's and the ROTFLMAO's and you sometimes even take LOL's out of context. Now please, try not to take what I just said as an insult or like I'm calling you old and out of touch but instead take it how it was intended, as a compliment. I mean really, because you dudes still know how to pick up the phone and speak through them like normal human beings. You know the way God okay maybe not God but at least as Alexander Graham Bell intended.

Ok, back to the point I'm trying to make... Who doesn't love the occasional impromptu, off the cuff & out of the blue, virtually unexpected, "Hey babes how's your day goin?" Or quick reminders like “Our date is still on for tonight @ 8 right?" Or even the totally rare, "Just thinking of you" text, email or IM? But c’mon Fellas don't get too comfortable and start using cyber talk as your main form of communication with your lady or should I rephrase that, your better half. Your lady friend can get a text but your better half, your baby, your boo, your girl, your main squeeze should rate and were not asking for much, at least one 3-5 min phone call a day. At LEAST!

I'll be the first to admit that yes I am a cyber-addict; I mean I only wrote a page and half blog highlighting just that. But having a text conversation with your homegirl at work or church or being enthralled in a to-the-death bejeweled match with yourself is one thing but when it comes to my sweet thang I don't know about you but sometimes I JUST WANT TO HEAR HIS VOICE!!! Now is that too much to ask for?

Ladies were not totally out of the way of blame here either because we accept & settle for this minuscule form of communication and that's where we are wrong because as long as we continue to honor and contribute to this behavior it will not change for the better, I can only see it getting worse for the wear. For example getting that first I love you in the form of a text, anniversary E-cards, digital birthday gift certificates and before you know it a texted proposal. Yes I’m talking about a marriage proposal. LADIES WE DON’T WANT THIS!! Take it from me I’ve already got dumped via text message and it was no fun at all. I mean not only did he QUIT me but I didn’t even rate a measly phone call!
In conclusion, Ladies speak to your man and explain how this issue makes you feel and after that if he still refuses to give good old fashioned communication a chance the next time you see him in the flesh and he puckers up for a smooch give him your A... I mean your phone to kiss. Well, you get my drift.Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Winking Smiley.jpg
