Welcome to my very first blog! As I write this I must thank Candy-Ellie Nanna for showing me how to set this up.
Source of Inspiration- Social Media
This book needs you! I am looking to create an open forum where we can share, discuss and explore our experiences with men. The term “Mr Wrong” is controversial topic in itself. Is there such a thing as Mr Wrong or is the term, “Mr Wrong-for-you-right-now” more applicable?. Is there such a thing as Mr Right or is he more of an ideal? What makes a Mr Wrong or Mr Right anyway? Mr Wrong came about partly due to my own past experiences and having listened to experiences that sound all too scarily similar. Its heartbreaking to see so many of my thirty-something pals who I consider to be strong, intelligent, beautiful, vivacious, witty and independent suffering at the hands of men who do not deserve them or men who do not treat them right. It seems to me that there are too many perfectly good women in there late twenties and thirties swimming solo in the lonely ocean where there simply are not plenty of fish but plenty of sharks lurking at the bottom ready to devour and spit us out with a virtual “poke” “block” or simple “deletion” from their lives via social media. What happened to chivalry, sticking power, respect and honesty? What
happened to looking , someone in the eyes and telling them what they really mean; really feel.
Whilst I embrace technology (boy did I struggle setting this blog!) I do feel that with the influx of dating sites obtaining a date/girlfriend/one nighter/”casual relationship/hookup” is becoming as simple as reciting the ABC. In some cases, even easier than buying a pair of shoes online! Now as a single lady I see nothing wrong with this as we are all busy people and why not shop for a man online? We shop online for clothes, books, DVDs, Home and Kitchen Ware. Why not shop for a man who has credentials for all to see; likes, wants, compatibility test, chemistry test you name it!? It’s easier than meeting a man in a bar, club (although feel too old for those now) or “on road.” At times, it gets to the point where you just wanna give the “potential” a questionnaire to fill in about himself before you even chat. It gets tiresome getting to know someone only to find out a few weeks or months later he is a raging homophobic, hates children and worse still doesn’t like Caribbean Cuisine.
Sadly, it feels we have lost the art of communication. It just seems to me that we are now living in a nation where we are too quick to put our profile online and too scared to put our hearts on the line. Breaking up via, text, BBM, FaceBook and other sources of social media is becoming the norm and good old honest face to face conversations are running out of trend. Why do we have to find out we’ve been dumped via a “Block” or a “Blog?” At times sometimes via “air!” What does this say about the growth of human interaction? Real interaction. Real communication. ‘I love you’ now replaced with ‘I heart you’ or via a cyber rose or flying cupid heart. Words, emotions, hearts lost in translation. Hearts bruised via diminished responsibility. The heart of what I am saying here is that I believe we are becoming a nation full of quick fixes where responsibility for our decisions and actions can be obscured and replaced by a quick press of a keyboard or click of a button. More and more people, both men and women, are being dumped by text, mobile or some other source of social media taking away personal contact and empathy. As I say I embrace technology however on the flip side this reliance on technology stop us from facing up to things, leaving us devoid of emotion and compassion. What it comes down to is that technology cannot replace sincerity.
