If you think your man's on-line persona is a bit too flirty with other ladies, how would you cope with the issue?


Only asking because I'm a bit worried about Colin's antics here, and the timing could not be worse, because I'm late.

If you're limiting the audience to Girls by Phage (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:20:56 AM EST
You're not going to get a whole lot of replies until this afternoon when the US wake up.

I, on the other hand, have a plethora of useful advice. Some of it may even be useful.

He's playing by Phage (4.00 / 1) #3 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:32:01 AM EST
The man is indubitably quite clever <smirk> and it seems to me that what he's doing here is
  1. Showing off how smart he is
  2. Whining
  3. Messing with people's heads
  4. Talking to people of similar outlook and experience.
That's why we're all here. I seriously doubt that you have an issue. I would only be worried should he start to confuse what's actually important in life. From what I've read he still has a good grip on this.

All I can suggest is that the moment that he stops whining and worrying about his family and how he's going to support you, and starts worrying about this site....kick him.

If you think he's actually being offensive or disrespectful to you, then tell him. Give him hell. After all, he'd do the same to me.

Yes, he's a jenyus by Rogerborg (4.00 / 1) #6 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:34:48 AM EST
And he mostly agrees with your points here, but would like you to note that the microphone is live.

It's a proud Celtic name by Rogerborg (4.00 / 4) #19 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:58:09 AM EST
That means "one who has learned to tolerate havinng odd quirks and remnants of wit broken on them (and also to recycle memes from one's recent diaries)".

Very forward thinking people, the ancient Celts.

I had a friend who worked in a city centre one. by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #29 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 03:15:29 AM EST
On one particular shift, a woman had a 5 hour miscarriage in the toilets, then later in the day another woman was gang raped in there.

I love Manchester.

'Clan Currie ... has a long and honorable history' by chuckles (4.00 / 1) #55 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 09:38:16 PM EST
link
According to Seumas MacManus in "The Story of the Irish Race", [Clan Currie founder Muiredach O'Daly] was highly respected as the King's Poet at the court of Cathal Crodhearg of Connaught. However, he was forced to flee to Scotland in 1213 after making an enemy of the powerful chief of the O'Donnels, whose steward had arrogantly demanded rent from the Royal Bard. O'Daly's response was swift and final - splitting the steward's head in two with a battleaxe. Then, in traditional bardic arrogance, expressed his surprise over the ensuing fuss in a poem:
Trifling our quarrel with the man,
A clown to be abusing me,
And me to kill the churl,
Dear God, is this a cause for enmity?
The obvious question: is clownist Muiredach O'Daly a typical Irishman or a typical Scotsman?

"The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin [...] would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities"

Oh, never mind her by Rogerborg (4.00 / 1) #13 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:42:24 AM EST
She probably thinks she's logged it at one of her emo-estro sites.  Just put on a squeaky voice and refer to UTBNB as "bumfun" and she'll think she's in the sex advice section.

How did you figure out the _lean_ tag?  Have you been logging my keystrokes?

For the record, that last claim is demonstrably incorrect, as I keep careful note of when it's more than my life's worth to come home without bearing chocolates and girlie mags.

You do NOT want a woman's opinion by ReallyEvilCanine (4.00 / 2) #5 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:33:30 AM EST
Women will harp on or commiserate. You want other men to tell you the score and this is the perfect place to ask considering the various persona here.

A persona is just that: it's a video game of the mind. People love to flirt, but while women can always pass it off as not having done so, men can't. Your boy can't really flirt with you, he daren't flirt with another meatspace woman, so he plays out a game on-line. Nothing more.

I have a couple accounts and in each one I act a certain way. I have this one to be particularly vicious if I feel like it, I have my "real" account, I have another "private" account, and maybe some more. It's nothing but a frame of mind and break from the realities of filling out TPS reports between team meetings and conference calls.

Which would you prefer: Your boy flirting on-line or in real life? Before answering that, realise that the hot babe he's talking to is probably a lonely fat, sweaty, balding, 50-year-old male sitting at the keyboard in his underwear.

Hang on, before we dwell on that last image by Rogerborg (4.00 / 5) #9 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:38:51 AM EST
I'd be mighty curious to know on what this claim of flirting is based.  I'm pretty sure that I haven't crossed the line from casual lechery for the skanks and basket cases women of dubious morals here to anything that could be construed as flirting, which I understand involves compliments.

You're late? by gazbo (4.00 / 10) #10 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:39:05 AM EST
I hope you're talking about menses rather than, say, being late for, say, a job interview.

We don't take kindly to the latter round here.  Like ketchup on an egg sandwich, it just doesn't go down well.


I recommend always assuming 7th normal form where items in a text column are not allowed to rhyme.

Get a dupe account and troll the blighter for all he's worth.

Also, what lovely way to announce an "interesting event" to your sweatheart. Almost worthy of the female members of this site, mad hormonally driven drama queens every last one of them.

Don't you think by vorheesleatherface (4.00 / 1) #16 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:48:44 AM EST
Something like that should be discussed with real people face to face and not on a blog site.

Got to draw a line between reality and blog.

Just tell him if he doesn't cut the shit he'll never get another blowjob for the rest of his life. That will get his attention. Or piss him off and encourage him to leave...oh...what the hell are you doing listing to me?

But I may be on to something with this head thing.


Hahaahh! Talk about empty threats! by Rogerborg (2.00 / 0) #18 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 01:56:32 AM EST
Actually, we did most of our early courting via messenger services.  In the same room and all, but easier to get my attention on screen.  However, this might be better done via some form of one to one communication rather than on a stage.

Don't worry, it won't get too frisky; only I have the root login to the firewall box.

IANAW... by DRFS Rich (2.00 / 0) #51 Fri Sep 23, 2005 at 09:44:25 AM EST
(I am not a woman (to the best of my knowledge)), but I figured my recent experience merited a post to discuss this matter... Thought the EXACT same thing of my ex, come to find out (through somewhat nefarious means) that she'd been telling the online guy "I have a boyfriend but it's not the same, and I'm not in love with him anymore, but I don't know if I should keep him around because he's safe," all the while telling me she loved me, and nothing was wrong.  I call her out on it, she admits her feelings have changed, but she has no feelings for this other guy -- just wants to "sort her life out."  2 Months later they're together.

Not that I'm bitter or anything... Just relating experience.
