I Married my Smartphone!

The days of smoking are over! Who needs to light-up a cigarette, because there is a replacement for it right in your hand and it’s always there, and knows about you, keeps track of your dates/ appointments and is basically your companion that one cannot do without today…. Our Smartphone, cell phone, mobile phone or whatever you want to call it.

It is simply there and always with you… No one would admit that they are a “Smartphone junky” because it is seen as being fashionable, so you never leave home without it!!!
I am always surprised by how attached people are to their Smartphone’s and I see a new trend on the horizon “Marrying my Smartphone” if you aren’t already married to it. People seem to spend more time monkeying around with their Smartphone’s than with their guy or gal……

An SMS conversation between a guy and gal:

1 – Guy: Ever heard of spoken communication?
2- Gal: Not too sure, let me check the internet to see what that was or is?
3- Gal: That was something that was done years ago before Smartphone’s
4- Guy: oh
5- Gal: should we try
6-Guy: How ??
7- Gal: ????
8- Guy: Huh ???
9- Gal: Date??
10- Guy: y +m
11-Gal: Yah, Fri ev @ 8.00
Now the date:
Real time speaking to each other: hi – hi
SMS:
Guy- Should we talk ??
Gal- Txting is easier
Guy- ok 🙂
Gal- ok 🙂
Guy- Pizza + Beer?
Gal – Do you have the order app for this restaurant?
Guy- sorry no
Gal- 😦 No food… you jerk!!

Is that what dating or communicating is turning into???? I hope not, because I still love to talk.
Then there’s the app that lets you communicate instantaneously, so the sender basically can judge from how long it takes for you to answer as to what you are up too…. Now where’s my life?????

Everyone wants to know what the other person is doing or indirectly even control or distrust the other person to whom they are sending the message too… or it is a plain form of self realization because they constantly need to tell someone how great and popular they are… But are they really popular???

I feel that sometimes my Smartphone is like a big chain around my neck!! Do I constantly have to be sending sms’s???

Wouldn’t it be nicer to call the other person up and hear their voice??? The sound of a real person’s voice can be so nice to hear and hopefully it won’t get lost in the world of sms’s!

Conversation is so nice, so let’s try and keep it alive!!

Marry me … or be free

There is always something surprising around every corner nowadays… The guy asking a gal.. “ Will you marry me?” is definitely a BIG step in their lives let alone it could be a costly one toooo.. That comes just when the thought pops into your mind.

I never realized nor thought that a guy has to go to a training course and arrange a package deal to learn how to “pop” the question. Though times have changed and things are not like they used to be; where a guy met a gal and thought “hey, she’s the right one for me!” and popped the question.

Today those thoughts are out dated…… Now it’s first to the seminar to learn how to get engaged… What do you need to learn.. Just ask the gal if she’ll marry you and if she loves you; I am sure she’ll say YES!!! Does that need schooling to ask such a question and get a package deal for your engagement??? But maybe there is more to this whole deal than what meets the eye????

Yes; the ring…. How big does the diamond have tooooo beeee before she will even consider getting married? There you go problem number 1 before the gal is even asked and where do you “pop” the question???? At home by no means…. An expensive night out and the gal has her calculator with her to figure out is this whole thing worth getting involved in and the poor guy is sweating hoping that he can hook her with his charm and not his wallet. I guess that is what the package deals are for?? Everything is planned down to the smallest detail and your coach maybe sitting at another table signaling to the guy what to do… Boring and not authentic if you ask me.

When I think back…..oh.. That’s a while ago, but still my guy was gutsy and without any special seminars or coaching just popped the question and the rest is history…. I just don’t understand why people have gotten so insecure about such things in life and if I knew the guy I was going to marry went to a seminar and arranged for a package deal engagement so he could propose to me…. Well; I would tell him to stick it right where the sun doesn’t shine. Because why do you need someone for everything you do in life???

Ok, the package deal engagement planer can earn some cash or does the guy get his money back if the gal says “NO”?? He should because if the plan does not work out then that is good money wasted for what…. A date that has gone bad and your planer’s plan didn’t work out.

Guys…. Be brave if you have met the gal of your dreams and just ask her to marry you and not some package deal nonsense that could ruin the moment forever….. Good luck popping the question!

Merry me or Wait for me

Now you may not be able to guess what this is about or do you know? It’s about tying the knot and believe me for some folks that could be a long wait for their fiancée.

Now I know you should never rush in too fast to tie the knot of marriage. Fist you really need to get to know each other to be on the safe side of things; like I read the other day that couple decided to get engaged but not married because they wanted to be sure. How sure I ask and why did they get engaged if they want to wait?

Anyone know the answer here?

It could be that now-a-days getting married isn’t like it used to be and with the choices of guys and gals out there you want to make sure you have made the right choice before jumping into the hornets’ nest of marriage. Marriage isn’t always a bed of roses as they say and can sometimes be a bit trying on the nerves.

But I believe that’s why couples live longer because of the training of their nerves which makes your heart healthy because you can stand-up to anything that confronts you. Ok, please don’t misunderstand me here. I have nothing against marriage and think it’s great.

But I can image how those folks think about waiting a bit before jumping into that hot bed of marriage. Though how long do you wait? This question does not leave my mind… oh please

This is my theory for waiting:

  1. Make sure the guys has enough money – gals we need to keep up our supply of handbags and shoes or else that’s the end of life!
  2. Make sure someone can cook – nothing worse than coming home from work and no hot meal is on the table. A sure fire route to disaster.
  3. Both can use the washing machine – saves hours of slaving and gals this way we have more time for the important things in life like gossiping.
  4. Has he bought me the right size of diamond ring – love is shown by the size of the diamond or is the ad different?
  5. Is one of you a blanket hog – trouble in the bedroom! The hornets’ nest is starting to buzz….
  6.  Who has cold feet – a romantic killer – with this you can forget everything!
  7. Snoring – ear plugs please

 

Those I guess are really good reasons to wait to see if you jump into the pond of marriage and if the guy or gal passes the test than by all means you can get married.

Though it would be advisable to have a score card handy to jot down any of the numbers that seem to be troubling you and then after say 10 years you can compare scores with each other and then decide to set the wedding date.

And if you are planning ahead naturally the whole trial period should be with a limited guarantee, so if something should go sour then you can separate in a peaceful manner. Boy how easy life can be….

So, if you are considering tying the knot do make sure that you have chosen the right model and not get stuck with the wrong model – enjoy your trial period and then get married!!
