Wide Open Spaces.

I'm not talking Dixie Chicks.  When I was in Florida for Sarah's Siesta Fiesta in July, my friend Jodi and I had a good talk about what she called "wide open spaces" (WOS) and how being on Myspace, Facebook, blogging, the phenomenon of google and all that other stuff allows people to learn everything about you with the click of a mouse. She wasn't kidding.  She's a smart cookie.

I've been on Facebook for less than 24 hours and already it proved why I hate it and validated her stance on WOS.  Everything is fair game and you can learn so much..

The ex-boyfriend that I've been upset over for months has been lying to me. And let's not forget to mention that good ole Facebook just revealed he was cheating on me. Amazing how stuff like this falls in my lap. I guess this will sure as hell help the healing process. If you're reading this, and I know you are, don't ever talk to me again. Please. And thanks.

I wonder..if I had been on Facebook would he have still cheated on me? hmm..food for thought.

He would have cheated. He just may have been smarter about it. If you want to cheat, you will cheat, you will find the time and the means. "Social Networks" just cause people to be sneakier, if need be and the desire is there to hide it.

It's ironic how difficult it is for people to admit their mistakes, myself included, even after the relationship is over. You broke up, you ended it, she ended it. Who cares? It's over, shouldn't the lies end at this point? Yet, the lies still so often continue and there is really no reason for it. You don't want to get back together, so shut up and stay away. You do want to get back together? Admit your mistakes, attempt to make amends and move forward. You want to be friends? You can never be friends with a big pink elephant in the room.

In the end, this discussion is pointless as we are never really going to get anywhere . . .

Additional word for the wise...don't believe everything blog owners write in the comment section either. Anyone who knows me sure as heck knows I'm the last person to cheat on someone.

The writings on the wall. Literally. Now pleave leave me alone.

You would think anyone who knows "Guess Who" would think he's a total wuss for not posting comments with his real name. One might say that is childish.

Jayme, you can censor which comments you chose to publish, and you may want to.

Remember to keep some things just for you.

Admitted yesterday that for the first time, I thought about deleting my ms and fb accounts. Some information is not necessary to learn or at least advertised in your face. Ok, so it wasn't advertised in my face . . . but close enough.

P.S. - I hate the gaytors!
