That Yahoo Conversation from yesterday

Except for people on my Yahoo Friends list, I hardly ever get any other messages that don't turn out to be a SPAM robot promoting a porn site or something. There was the one notable exception of the guy who saw I lived near him and was into photography and wanted me to videotape he and his girlfriend having sex with another couple. That was funny. So the one yesterday from the girl in Ghana took me a bit by surprise. Still not sure if it's someone just messing with me or what. I'm reasonably sure my Yahoo profile says I'm in a relationship so it's always a bit suspect when someone comes online and from the get-go starts telling you how cute you are. This "girl" says she goes to the University of Wisconsin in Ghana. I looked and UW does not have a branch in Ghana. However, there is a Wisconsin International University of Ghana, but you'd think a 28 year old person going to college would know the differnece. Be that as it may, he Yahoo profile says she is 28 and single but then her favorite quote is "Marriage is the best." and in our convo she claimed to be 30. She updated her Yahoo account in December, you'd think she would have changed her age on the profile then but maybe not. Anyway, the convo was interesting if you can get past all the phoenetic spellings and web speak. Check out the interesting turn the convo took towards the end.

singlemaya000: heloo how are u i am 30 female here, my name is maya, i found u through the member directory and i have seen ur profile and u are looking so good and nicelooking man.

stonebear40: Hello again

BUZZ! - This was her buzzing me

stonebear40: I'm right here

singlemaya000: i am back my computer was down

stonebear40: UW has a branch in Ghana?

singlemaya000: yess

stonebear40: So are you American then or African?

singlemaya000: i am in africa

singlemaya000: i was thinking of comming to america branch to school it just that i could not afford it and even in here

stonebear40: It's very expensive yes I know. I worked my way through two universities.

singlemaya000: umm

singlemaya000: so what do u do for living

stonebear40: I work for a textbook publishing company

singlemaya000: ok

singlemaya000: so are u married with any kids

stonebear40: No, I was married for 8 years. No kids. I'm divorced now. I've been divorced for 12 years. But I live with someone.

singlemaya000: whom is that that u live with

singlemaya000: and what happen that u dont have kids, or u dont need kids/

stonebear40: I live with a girl I've been seeing for several years. I don't neccessarily want to have kids. It's not like anything happened. My first wife didn't want any. The girl I live with now doesn't want any.

singlemaya000: but do u whant an?

stonebear40: No not really and it's getting past the point where I need to be a parent anyway. I'd be elderly by the time they were grown

singlemaya000: but u need to be a parent, it very important

stonebear40: Why? Don't we have enough people on the Earth already?

singlemaya000: we have

singlemaya000: but u need some one that could take over what u have labour in life

stonebear40: I don't think so. I didn't take over what my father did. He was in the Marine Corps for 30 years. Even if I did have kids I wouldn't expect them to take over doing what I did.

singlemaya000: ok brb

stonebear40: ok

stonebear40: Are you still online?

BUZZ! - This is me buzzing her since she showed up as still being online

Yahoo! Messenger: singlemaya000 has signed out

stonebear40: are you having computer problems?

And that was that. I don't expect to hear from her/it again. Can we say AGENDA there near the end?

Once people start asking me specifics on YiM I usually get very vague or I'll sometimes say, "Hello Mr. FBI man if you are reading out there!"

I work for McGraw-Hill by the way.

There was this thing on Good Morning America today about all these teenage girls listing very personal info on MySpace and their Moms found out about it. Deb and I were like, "well no shit Sherlock."

If only she knew my secrets. I wonder if I said I was Sterile on my profile if I'd get these contacts.

Mar. 15th, 2006 09:18 pm (UTC)
Yup you would. You'd get the ones that wanted to "save" you.

"I have lots of kids.. I'll share..." or the ones that just want to have care free sex would be contacting you all the time.

You should say to her: So, shall we skip the formalities so I can just go ahead and invite you to live with me as my wife until your citizenship clears?

She's got a porn site to pay for her schooling.
