When a friend of mine told me she met her husband through the internet,i wondered what she meant by that.That was way back,before i came to know anything about this machine.But then,it's true because she's living in Australia now.And then as time went on i came to live in the world of online dating too.But i didn't believe that one could meet a lifetime partner on the net.Well,Itumeleng is a living proof of that.
I joined eDumela for the first time in November of 2005,as jayk.I didn't chat for long when i met someone by the username sword.He had a picture of his lips as the default image and i must say thats what caught my attention.We started talking then.We were online everyday.There were times when i would come to the office just to chat with the guy,and on the days that followed,i just logged in to chat with just him.I'll be having other messages from other users,but i'll delete before reading them.I got hooked on the thing like my whole life depended on it.
Well...and then the tale with sword is a very long story.It's so long it can't be cut short.....
And then it came to pass....i opened another account as nomsa.I had my black en white picture there as the default image.So many people sent messages.I made a lot of friends there as nomsa.And then came a story with vista in the U.S.He was such a dear friend.He's deleted his account now at eDumela....i kept on trotting on...i opened two other accounts after a while when i got bored,chakachaka and assword.I didn't stay long under those accounts,but still the same thing happened-a lot of friends made.And then,now i have another one that i'm currently using,that i opened sometime last year and again i'm still making so many friends.Especially that this time around i put up a picture of my undies(somebody called them knikkers-said i threw them on his face!..lol..).Most of the friends that i make here are males,but i was looking for females too,in that i wanted to have a kinda woman to woman talk with them.
Now my point in narrating all this is to try and show people that as individuals we have this other parts of our beings that are so hard to control.I think that everyone,if not all,who register with all these sites to look for partners or friends,just don't come here as single as they claim to be on their profiles.Well,it's just ONE in a million.Like ME.But,like i wrote on my profile,i didn't come there desperately looking for a guy or a life partner.I'm just there to make friends.
One thing that i realised is all these guys that i said i've made friends with,all the time they talk about SEX.Except for one who wanted to know how many cattle my dad would demand,in order for him to marry me!...lol...marriage?..One hell of an institution.All the others wanted to meet me.Others were pressing hard that we make appointments to meet.What for?...nxhee!.Others leave their numbers on my wall.But i made it perfectly clear on my profile that they shouldn't leave their numbers,coz i won't call.
Eish! there's one in J'burg who couldn't stop telling me what he'll do to me if ever we get to meet.I won't write that down coz it's so disgusting!.On the other hand,he says he's got a girlfriend and a daughter! So what are we(women)? Sex objects? Shit! I've stopped talking to him because...well...like i said i hate SEX!
And then,there are other sites i've passed through: mascom chart,vibesconnect,hi5,dating botswana,to mention just a few.Once in a while i log in those,but most of the time i'm eDumela.
Now,i recently bought a one-bedroomed house in Blogville.It's so small but i know that with time i'm gonna have to extend it coz there'll be so many people coming to my house.I know i'm gonna make a lotta friends there-bloggers.It's such an interesting site.Like one of my fellow blogger-Vera,said:''it's like AIDS.easy to catch,impposible to get rid of.It's spreading faster than wild fire in Winter''.
I think i've also caught the virus.At blogville,everything written down comes from the heart.People write about their lifes,their dreams,their ambitions.It's at blogville where wriiting talents are discovered.So if you know that you got that talent please buy a house at blogville and get to feel how it's like having people like Vera,Belle,Mphahlele,Jaycee,Guy Horny,OverwhelmedNaijaBabe,Naijadude and all the rest!...http://www.blogger.com
