"Fakes" - a different sort of rant - 8/24/2009 5:40:21 PM

I realised today after seeing yet another forum thread (elsewhere) that I have been seriously deprived.

The reason being: I did not have scores of cmails from fakes and scammers.

I have met quite a few people in r/l and they were all real.

Thinking back on it I wonder if the reason why I never found scores of fakes and wannabes is simply because I wasn't looking for them.

I sought information and found plenty of that.
I was interested in the possibility of friendships and  discovered people I could have that with in varying depths.
I was interested in connection and I found that too!

When one relationship ended, I did not wring my hands, nor gnash my teeth over how fake he turned out to be.
I was gratetful for the experience.
I learned.
In the beginning, I learned to trust.
In the middle, I learned that "direction was more important than speed".
In the end, I learned I was stronger than I knew.
We are still friends.

Now I am in a different relationship that is better suited to my needs.
I want to serve Him well...as well as He leads.

The chances of it lasting forever are pretty close to nil.
I am being realistic, not pessimistic: the odds that any relationship will last forever, is also pretty close to nil.
Rumor has it that people eventually die.
Today is all we ever really have.


So...I am  loving being His and loving my "happy middle".


IF it were to end tomorrow however, he will not suddenly go from being Master Wonderful to a scum sucking fake.

I know the search is frustrating to so many people.

There probably are tons of fakes, scammers, liars and wankers.
I just didn't notice them.
I was too busy getting to know good people and reading interesting posts to have much time for anything else, I think.

This has been much my experience too. I have met friends, learned lots, grown, and even met a wonderful partner here. In doing all that, I didn't have a whole of focus available for noticing the fakes, flakes, and freaking nuts. Those that I have had any kind of extended correspondence or met in real time have been pretty well decent human beings. I have had a few first visits bomb, but that's life and it beats wasting a bunch of time only to discover the incompatibility later.

I am generally a pretty positive person and just happy to do this thing we call life. I don't know if I have just been too naive to notice or too occupied with good things to care, but my time on CM has been a great one so far and I am looking forward to more to come. Folks have sent me notes of encouragement when I was down and words of congratulations when I have had new joys. I can ask my dumb, embarrassing, or even sick questions here and find a kind audience and response that help me make sense of things as I go along.

I just don't have time for the negatives. I don't have the energy to offer those who would drag me down. I go forward and enjoy what I can and leave the rest. I have my days of frustration, but I know I have a place here. There have been good friends, good times, and lots of love and support along the way.

angelika,
Today...i love you to bits. (tomorrow too...but that's beside the point.) i wish i'd read that earlier when trying to explain myself to a girlfriend of mine about my complicated realtionship stuff. i am trying to make a constant effort to live in "today".

Great thread, sweet one!

So... in case anyone wonders how it turned out... it is a wonder-filled experience.
We have experienced some bumps, worked them out and I am very happy to be His.
I am a very fortunate girl!

Thanks for clearing my head. I've too often been disgusted with some of the mail I get. But this makes me see things in a different light. I haven't been on the boards for that long, it's a much nicer place to be. I get to roll eyes, laugh and shake my head the occasional "moment" or two.

I'm trying really hard not to drive myself crazy over insignificant meanderings. I have a smart ass streak a mile wide and there's just times when I have to stop myself. Think things through and get a grip. I haven't made any friends yet, but I hope that changes.

I've had some pretty lousy experiences but I've learned from each one. And I keep on forging ahead. I don't look back, or at least I try not to. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Tomorrow will be the same.
