“I don’t know. I wanted to check it out to see what happens. I’m excited to see how (CBS’ new show “3”) may be different.”

“I figured there’s nothing to lose in trying. I’ve never been shy, always outspoken. I don’t mind being filmed.”

“I think in the format, you have to be open to the possibility it’ll work out, and the possibility it may not.”

“I don’t get embarrassed easily, so I thought I’d at least check it out at the beginning stages of the show process.”

Yes, of course! It all depends on what you mean by "lasting romance." Do you mean until next week? Or do you mean until next month?

Maybe if it was one of those shows were the contestants try to form relationships with inanimate objects. (Says to rock) WHY WON'T YOU TALK TO ME???!!!!

tange, I have known two people that got married to someone they met online, one man and one woman. The man I don't know how it worked out because he moved to Georgia, where she lived, and I never saw him again.

But, I did see the woman that got married to someone she met online, and as a direct result of that marriage, I contracted a very serious case of the dreaded 'foot in mouth' disease.

I knew her years ago, and the last I heard was that she had moved to Kansas City with her new husband, who I never met, and he was her second husband. After that, I did not see her for years.

Then one day in Topeka I was eating at a restaurant and a couple tables away, there she was! It was very nice to see her again. So we greeted each other and I walked over to her table.

She introduced me to her husband, and I told him that I was very pleased to meet him. Then I very quickly did a calculation in my head, and yes I was accurate, and I said:

"So you've been married about nine years?"

There were a few awkward moments of silence. Whoops.

Her new husband broke the silence by saying,

"No, we've been married about six months. We met in a chat room."

I'm starting a reality show called 'Jack McKee needs Love Too". The three ladies above are my first contestants.

Maybe a show called "Hot Pursuit" . . . but no, they already did a couple of movies by that name. . . The Mrs tells me if I were courtin' her today she could have me arrested for stalkin' her.

No idea why she would say that.

Maybe you should get a FB page?

At least Roe stalks The Rock (kinda rhymes)... nowhere near as bad as someone stalking another LJworld commenter.

RoeDapple 6 years ago

maybe I already have one . . . send me your name, address, phone#, soc. sec.#, latest bank statement, a copy of your DL and your mothers maiden name and maybe we could be friends. Maybe . . .

You forgot that you also need a credit card #, and also its security code and expiration date.

Romance. The definition changes all the time. Anything is possible, I s'pose.

FB = flux blessed?

Terry Sexton 6 years ago

Hey, Dapple, do I hafta start calling you Rock Stalker? That's an awful lot like my handle, buster. I guess it's OK, but you're gonna need to update your status. Will you be my friend? Purely platonic, of course. No romance - unless we can get on TV.

And stalker #2 (or flux's other ID) makes their appearance. Roe needs to start counter-stalking.

labmonkey 6 years ago

Why is almost every comment from you and flux a comment about ROE? You can go through all my comments and see that I stalk noone. You look through your's and flux's comments, almost exclusively a reply to ROE.

"Roe needs to start counter-stalking."

Nah, I'll stick with stalker baiting . . . You might say I'm a "master" at it . . .

(Oh, and don't forget flux/faceit's third ID , rantor)

"because we care, out of goodness, charity, and love"

Don't bother, I've got all I need. The funny part is, when you feel obligated to comment about me or others you become one of us! Well, with the exception that you add even less to the conversation . . .
