On the phone you have to ave real communication skills..



LOL, just the opposite. You need no skills,
just sit there and grunt once in awhile.
All the other person usually wants is to
know there's a warm body on the other
end, they really aren't interested in what
you say.

Back in the 90's I met several locals in person
that I met on the net. Didn't like it, a few times
it was a real shocker. Made it a point never to
do it again. I will never meet anybody I talk to
on the net ever again.

One of my best friends is a farmer who lives in
IA. We met on a TV forum in 2009 and have
never met. We exchange emails every day, and
have thousands of them. He's five years younger
than me and I have no idea what he even looks
like. We seldom discuss personal things, just
everything else. As I'm tying this I got an email
from him about his wind farm. Cool.

Yea wonderful(sounds creepy), sounds almost as good as imaginary friends.

You have an excuse for everything and why you can't or wont do anything. Do you make this crap up as you go? if not, It just goes to show some people can't overcome adversity.

Seriously if no one has ever meet you from this forum. You could be anyone or anything I could imagine repulsive cat -fishing us. Never trust someone no one as ever meet.

Never trust anyone until they give you
reason to. Most people will screw you
or let you down, given the chance. Don't
give them that chance.

No offense, but you are probably emotionally damaged. Gamblers normally tend to be but you're quite severe.

I was in a cash business for a long time.
You learn the hard way not to trust people.
I guess you could say I'm emotionally wised
up. Forget the bar and cab business. In my
wife's antique mall, the two most liked and
most trusted dealers turned out to be the
biggest crooks. She caught them when video
surveillance became affordable. Surprise..

The problem is you don't seem to be able to accurately gauge the odds of these situations ending badly individually. You'll say met a friend once, did this once, that once, once this happened, and I swore to never do it again. Yet you like roulette and seem to never want to give up on it. I play games with worse odds, so not knocking it, but the two ideas don't mesh well. You might just have aspergers syndrome. I know you definitel remind me of a friend diagnosed with it.

How would you possibly know anything from
a few posts on a forum. I have 15K posts and
I never ever make such broad assumptions
about anybody. Find where I have done it.
Yet you people make expert psychological
evaluations without blinking any eye. It's
quite laughable. I would never presume to
be qualified to even begin something like
that, I'm not quite that full of myself yet.

You swear to never do harmless things again as if the odds were 100%. You aren't using your intellectual side of your brain with these decisions. You're using fear.
