Spotted on Twitter: “Blackberries, iPhones and Twitter killed the dating world. R.I.P.” This statement coming from The Fly Guy himself, made me think, “How do we even manage to hook up in person anymore?!” I know a lot of us are way into technology and social networking, but is it becoming harder for you to strike a balance with old school dating?

You know, calling a person up, asking them out, going to pick them up, and enjoying the company with quality face to face time. Yeah, that’s old school dating! Today, we send evites, tweets, Facebook messages to set things up with friends and dates.

The younger guy (I still need a name for him) I am seeing is all about the text. It got to the point where I had to tell him what I was comfortable with on text, and what actually required a phone call.

We have so many ways to showcase our personalities these days: Facebook, Twitter, personal blogs, text messaging, instant messaging, or email. Whew, that’s a lot of typing at each other. How can you determine if a person is actually interested in you when they are using “text”, which doesn’t exactly scream big effort?

Are you seeing someone who spends more of their time typing at you then seeing you in person? Do you think that is genuine interest or boredom?

Guys, you aren’t really big on phones and chatting, do you prefer the texting to communicate because it is a compromise for you?

Do they try the cases that day?

Usually, yeah. Maybe you can ask for a continuance. However, I think that they charge administrative costs for that, too.

Melo – I was rushing to my brother’s wedding at Tybee Island. Me and an asian guy had the same fate that day/moment, when the cop pulled us over he and i looked at each other like “DAYUM!!!”

Yea, i had to pay. But he had to pay more, he had some turbo engine in his tricked out sports car…

In CA, the officer not only showed up, but he had pictures and a whole case built against me.

I got found guilty and I cried. :lol:

That ticket was erased with traffic school though.

W8 – I plan to fight it since I have to go to court anyway. He just gave me a court date.

My Gwinnett PD friend says he only shows up when he gets a summons. He doesn’t give a damn otherwise.

Court is gonna be bananas cuz they are setting up speed traps so a whole bunch of people are getting caught. On my way to work this morning, he was out there again. This time he had a Lexus.

:lol:

Funny thing is, I NEVER forget my license. The only reason I forgot that day is because I almost missed my flight, so I didn’t have time to put it back in its proper place.

GA is the first state I’ve been to where you still have to pay if the officer doesn’t show. Madness. No wonder folks can get locked up for oral.

I’m not even gonna say a thing about Ms. Speed Demon. She’s gotten a lot better over time. smh at myself

But I will admit it’s a lot easier to deal with down here. I’ve never gotten one up there (even with my darkboys)…and I hope that I never do.

why do u think u have “problem” with speed,are u just a speed demon,or u leave things until late,then rush to get where u going??

i used to get tickets coz i wld just cruise on the toll gates on ga 400.But that was when i was still new in america,i thoght it was lame to stop me for 50 cents,when i cld just proceed on the side and not be bothered to pay that.
Untill the clobbered me with the penalty,jacked up 400% times%x.
Taught me not to thrw away money,like that.

Leggs – *whispers* Thank you.

I’m :lol: @ I once wrote an article titled ” I’d Rather Get Mugged Than Get A Traffic Ticket”. Basically I said that getting mugged was faster, cheaper and has no long term repercussions such as increased insurance premiums or loss of my license. If I get mugged, the guy is only going to get $20.00 or $30.00 sometimes less and its over in about 30 seconds. If I get a ticket, it will cost $150.00 to $500.00 or more.

All of that salt while pregnant will get you. Nose spreading, swollen feet/hands and discoloration to those who do not take heed to their physician’s advice.

However, there may be a few others, who simply could not be helped. Drink plenty water and keep plenty cocoa butter, pure olive oil and a good toner on deck – preggo or not. Because I’ve witnessed some folks who have NO excuse (meaning unhealthy, uneven/ twotoned skintone and marks) and no desire to treat nor keep their bodies properly hydrated….AND have the nerve to “don” tasteless and unappealing attire that makes you wonder, if your folk was really ya folk, they would have been real enough to give it to you raw about that “getup” before leaving your house and presenting “it” to the public for all to see and unfortunately witness. This is not a benchmark for beauty lecture, just common sense.

Cee – I’m sure Lil’ G is going to be sometin’ else. :) He’s growin’ up, huh?
