(If you don't want to read a negativity filled rant, I highly advise you NOT read this post! Don't say I didn't warn you!)
I have loved my time as a blogger. I have met many amazing people and some of the emails I've received have really touched my heart. But the downside to all this is dealing with the fakes and liars. I will admit that I tend to take people at their word and believe what they tell me. I wouldn't say I'm naive, but I a definitely too trusting.
In the last 3 months, I have met some very fake and insincere people. It makes me laugh when someone emails me for advice then I see them passing along that same advice, verbatim, as their own. I've had guys lie to be about their location because they knew I wouldn't send them a picture if I knew they were from Hawaii. I've had guys lie and tell me they are single and then I find out they are married or have a girlfriend. I don't know why guys feel the need to lie about this because when someone emails me, it doesn't matter if they are single or not. Along those lines, I've also had many older guys lie to me about their age and tell me they were younger than they really are.
I've also had people who lie about such stupid things. I had one person tell me about their own sexual encounters with various partners then turn around and write on Tumblr that they'd only been with a couple of partners. What is the point of that? Either you're lying to me about the sexual encounters or you're lying about how many people you've slept with. Personally, I don't associate with liars. If I catch you in a lie, you better believe you will never hear from me again.
Maybe some people don't care about this stuff. I bet some people will read this and think this post is so lame. I really don't care. I take a very vested interest in my readers. When someone emails me and needs my help or advice, I take it to heart. I've offered my personal cell phone number to a few people because I felt they might need to hear a caring voice. Lying is a huge thing with me. I feel like if you're willing to lie about something small or meaningless, then you're just as willing to lie about something more important. And if that's the case, I have no desire to be your friend, even if it is just through emails. I will devote my time to sincere readers who need my advice or a friend to talk to. I have no time for liars.
Despite how frustrated I get with the liars and fakes, I will NOT stop blogging. I love sharing my stories with all of you and I'm not going to let a few assholes ruin it. I love my readers and to those who have taken the time to email me and share your stories, experiences, feelings, comments, and thoughts, THANK YOU! I continue to blog because of you.
The lesson from all this is to not waste your time lying to me. There's no reason to. I will talk to you if you have a wife or girlfriend and need my advice. I will talk to you if you're a virgin or if have slept with 100+ people. I don't care if you're 18 or 81. Ahhh, thank you for letting me vent. I feel better already! And for the liars and fakes, FUCK YOU! Okay, I'm done now. I have a great sexual encounter planned for late tomorrow night and I will make up for this negative post with the recap of that encounter, I promise :)
