trainer.....of course i'm looking for something....isn't everyone involved in this biz? in any transaction, anyplace?.....just because these transactions are the result of a whole lot of individuals and the boundaries they set for themselves (that are apparently loosely reinforced to various degrees by the different sites) -or fail to set- doesn't make camsites any more or less dangerous than the "real" world
except for the fact that so much of it is in one's head....i mean that's the really scary place for most of us.....particularly on my side of the glass.
that's why a site like this is so helpful.....it doesn't really destroy the illusion, as some have said....it just puts it in a comprehensive perspective.
i called my first visit to a camsite a circus earlier....because it was a colorful pagent of organized chaos.
but it was also like landing in a different country, with a culture all it's own: this site has saved me from having to understand all that i was seeing all by my lonesome....it's a manual about the camsite culture, and the various threads all reveal the cues to understanding what's going on.
so....is my logic fuzzy? i'm sure it is, and i'm ok with that....social engineering came out of prussia at the end of the 19th century: an attempt to apply razor sharp logic to the human condition, by generalizing the individual into a piece of society.....
works great for those who want to run the world....kinda stupid at the level of individual transactions tho, as the exceptions to what is considered "the norms" of camsite culture prove.
all of which is to say...you can't keep an old man from trying (and thank you for calling me an "adult")
you asked my if i had considered what i'm looking for, trainer.
yes.....i'm not sure what it IS yet.....but i can tell you what it isn't: marriage, rescue, rebound, or models who work rooms into a frenzy with displays of their charms....i've got nothing against models who do that or a culture that celebrates it: it's just not me.
which is to say that i have no intention of moving to camland and becoming a citizen.....but i don't mind being a stranger in a strange land.
