@PA, I am an optimist as well. I know there is someone out there with my preferences, I just hate weeding thru the garbage. I mean I had the guy who left me at a hockey game, the guy who was asking if he could come on my vacation with me after we had just me and now this. Yes, the garbage.
@WB- I think that some do hide behind and text. If I had someone that did not want to talk on the phone, then I would ask them to talk in person. True intimacy is created...mostly in person; and well the "other" kind of intimacy too!
