Online Dating

Back in 1995 my Uncle Ron called me over to show me this cool computer he bought. it was a Packard Bell model with a 133meg processor and 32megs of ram and a huge 2 gig hard drive. Later we started calling it "Packard Hell" but i doubt that is an original term. We had a huge argument about its worth, I was calling it an over priced type writer. That's when he showed me A.O.L. and the addiction began.
My first Screen name was Gator9571 and i was spending all my free time in chat rooms. I had fifty people on my buddy list and by 1996 i didn't have to enter a chat room to chat i would get I.M.'ed the second i signed on. I wasn't looking for a date when i met Kim, it just kinda happened to turn out that way. I was in Florida and Kim was Living in Arkansas. We talked online for two months and then started making AT&T stock holders very happy. I moved out there and found the area very beautiful, but the people where a little off. No alcohol, No fool langauge and church every sunday. Now im not saying thats why they are a little off, I tried to clean up my act. Its when they started preaching No premarridal sex that i began to choke. Come on!!!! where's the love? Needless to say the relationship between Kim and I didn't work out and I went back to florida never to return to Arkansas.
The year is now 1997 and it has happend once more. This time her name is Donna and I am back into the Phone stage and the stock holders are happy as hell due to my $700 a month phone bill. My Uncle Ron thinks im a loser and my Friends want to stage an intervention for me. One fine day in November of 1997 Donna had a bussniss meeting in Fort Lauderdale and stops by Jacksonville for a three day visit. We Hit it off and in January of 1998, I once agian moved this time to Chicago.
Flash forward ten years and Donna and I are still together happly married. My current computer is light years ahead of that old packard Hell, But the only thing i do on it now is Gaming and Blogs.
