Do you Text?

Just wondering, but do any of you randomly text strangers? Might just be me. It's pretty evident that when I'm bored I surf the internet. Seems like lately, I've been hitting Craig's List. However, I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to meeting these weirdos (like fear of death and maiming). So, I decided to view the Platonic Connections links and discovered that there is a whole world of people who just want to text!

It's near insanity to follow through with that, but I did. I decided to text two guys. One is a young 24 year old nurse and the other is a single dad of two boys. The nurse seems to be well educated in his use of language and grammar. I haven't seen much of the dad yet, but then we've just started. The cool thing is, there's no pressure to meet, just chat as friends.

I'm kinda liking that. It's like having a phone pen pal. Wave of the future! Soon school kids around the world will be texting other countries in school instead of sending letters!!! Hey, that would be cool except the phone bills would suck huge.

Anyway, just wondered if anyone else had tried this?

Just my family and friends..never strangers.

This is the first I'm hearing of the texting-strangers thing. Have fun, but yeah, beware of death and maiming.

Um. We need to get you back into civilization, sweetie. And soon.

I dated online for a while before I met Bruce. I IM'd a lot with someone before taking the plunge to actually meet face to face. Most of them were phonies and fakes and craigslist is full of that. You have to use your head, tread lightly, and if your guy tells you that you might want to meet, make sure someone knows where you are and have a good friend call you during it to make sure you're safe.

The closest contact I have with strangers is my computer.

Also, nice new template.
