"Couple Surfing" A sign of the times?
Tuesday, August 08, 2006

After looking around for some interesting news to report, I came across this article on CNN.com called " Couple-surfing: 'Love me, love my blog'".

Basically it talks about couples who do a majority of their day to day communicating through blogs, forums, chatrooms - while sitting right next to each other!! Even though I can consider myself an internet freak - I think "couple surfing" is the saddest, most depressing thing I've ever heard of....

What the hell ever happened to talking at the breakfast table, or taking a walk in the park? I mean, the "mainstream" internet craze hasn't been around that long. If we are already to the point that our social skills are so jacked up by the internet that we can't even talk face to face with the most important people in our lives, then we need to sit down, and re-introduce some "old school" techniques to our relationships.

I think it would be good for everyone.

Seriously, lets look 20 years down the road...the whole world will be a giant internet robot. We already have "cyber sex" now, but in 20 years will couples somehow procreate for real, online? Who knows what lies ahead....

All I know is that when I find that special person - we will drink wine and eat cheese under the old oak tree in front of my grandfathers farm....far away from the "Couples Cyber Cafe".
