Reading the Forums makes me want to go lie down
So lately I have been trying to be more active online, and have even visited several of the online forums. I used to spend a good deal of time participating on the forums, attending the Meet & greets, chatting online, as well as tending my blog and editorials. Unfortunately, I am an Overly Opinionated Italian who can not resist a good debate, so with that participation came more than my fair share of drama. Then one day, I just had enough and I took several steps away from my keyboard.
Business wise, maybe a total shut down was not in my better interest, BUT on a more personal level it did wonders for my sanity. For the past couple years I have been able to just enjoy this lifestyle with very little negativity and almost no drama, just me and my guys with a couple close lady friends. Closer to perfect than one dare hope. I love my guys, 99% of them are drama free and on the occasion that the 1% becomes a negative vibe, I bid the adieu and move on....so yeah, almost perfect.
Now after a few years of online obscurity, I am surprised to be surprised that little has changed. Oh sure, there's plenty of new faces and new names, and a few old faces with new names, but much of the same old drama bullshit remains the same, only now Paramour is not right in the middle of the shit pit.
Maybe it's just my age creeping up on me, but I find my level of tolerance for it has all but disappeared. I can't lie, the Overly Opinionated Italian in me sometimes clicks the reply button and considers delving into a far too wordy response pertaining to whatever I accidently stumble into, but then with a heavy sigh I close the window with thoughts of "what's the point" or "I'd rather stay neutral".
Most the time though I click on a few of the links and as I get to the 3rd one, I suddenly feel exhausted and want nothing more than to just go lie down. I think that's why I enjoy my Blog and my editorials way more than the forums. It's far less draining and leaves me feeling much more positive. Sadly, like reviews, the forums are a necessary evil in my approach to this lifestyle. I think for now I will just stick to posting my availability on the forums and keep my Overly Opinionated Italian Musings here where they belong lol.
Whoops, I looked at another forum, guess I will go take a nap.
