Mike,

If you post your life on face book for all to see, you have to expect someone will have an opinion and post it, which may hurt your feelings.

Instead of trying to find comfort, friendship, whatever it is you seek on face book, or teardrop forums, or whatever other kind of internet "reality" places you visit, why not consider something more personal, something that you can control? :thumbsup:

When you lay out all your feelings/problems/desires on the Internet there will always be someone ready to pounce.

There are a lot of very incredibly nice, sensitive, caring people in the local nursing homes and care centers that dream day in and day out of having someone...anyone to give a darn enough to just talk with them... :worship:

You would be amazed at the knowledge these people can share, as well as the compassion and experience they offer.
There are probably many that have an interest in camping, maybe even a few that have built or fixed up a camper in their lives.
No doubt some have fished the same lakes and streams...

You appear, and have appeared since joining here, to be searching for friendship.
While internet relationships and friendships can be formed (such as the one you and Steve have developed) in the end it is far easier, and much more fulfilling to have a close friend(s) you can visit regularly to share all your happy, and sad moments with.

Your reality is in Pinedale and vicinity, not the Internet.
Internet relationships can fill gaps, but there is nothing like spending time with someone who really cares about your stories, your life, and discovering that you really care about them! :)

I hope you find what you are looking for.

Rob, this is exactly why I deleted my Face Book account..... Way! Way! to many "Drama Queens" and attention seekers. My wife convinced me I needed it to keep up with family, grand kid's etc which was no problem, then as people from high school and old acquaintance's wanted to be friends, the drama started. I do not have time for, nor do I want to know about everybody's dirty laundry and problems in life so I cut it off....got better stuff to do.

I belong to 2 forums this one, and a Hot Rod page, for the most part I really enjoy keeping up with, chatting and learning from a whole world of wonderful tear droppers/builders and motor heads.........Larry

chatting and learning


Larry,

Exactly! :thumbsup:

Chatting and learning about your hobby in your spare time, after you have spent time with your family and friends, that is what the Internet boards and rooms are good for.

Trying to do more/get more than that is when the trouble starts.

What's bad about the Internet in general, is it has stripped away tru human relationships. Some of the "friends" I have on FB, I've not seen in almost 30 years and frankly wouldn't care if I did. Except for about a dozen people, what's the point....except those we truly hold close. Focus on them and evaluate who those people are very carefully. Love all, but don't all be part of your daily life.

Boy!, do I agree with your viewpoint. I have joined several different forums at one time or another, corresponding and concurrent with my hobby/focus at the time (various special interest car forums, racing forums, etc...). When my focus changed, I lurked/posted less, only popping up now and then. I've really enjoyed my time on this forum, and might be guilty of over-posting and sharing a bit too much of my erratic, possibly tangential thinking...but, it's among friends. Like Will Rogers, I can say that in my three outings with South Central Group, I've never met a "man" (or woman) I didn't like. So, I just say what I like, and feel at ease. However, like Redneck Teepee, I was talked into signing up for Facebook. I immediately received so much junk and spam and e-mails from wackos all over, not even trying to reach any family or friends yet, that I tried to dissolve my link after only a few minutes....yet my G-mail accounts are still getting "linked-to-Facebook" crap a month later. My few old-school forum links are plenty of enough networking for me. If I were younger, and more "sociable", maybe the "social network" would be perceived differently by me, but I'll stick with what I know and trust.

I actually run a farm and ranch bussness of facebook so I really cant remove myself off it no matter how much damage it does. the newspapers are going the way of the dodoo bird and with free coverage on facebook pluse free networking wich is a main tool of how we do bussness in the agirculture world . facebook is to important a tool to get out of . yes. its bad gossip and yes it ruins relationships and I will be the first to amit it. but when you can sit on a smart phone at work in the cab of a propane truck or while filling a propane tank and hunt up hay for your cows or find and do bussness on a cow pasture lease or sell something like used truck or do something like networking its pretty hard to get rid of facebook. I should of delted myself long time ago and saved a lot of crap. but I am doing far to much bussness on the thing.

the hole world is now on facebook and when I am doing cow pasture bussness and hay over seveal counties away and over 300 miles from home while at work. its pretty hard to use a newspaper to do this and its totaly free too.

This is not true.

I run my business, and life quite well without facebook.

If you don't like being insulted on facebook, then get off it.

If you want to complain, so be it, but expect a lot of people to continue to criticize you for complaining, but never taking any positive action to correct your troubles. :thinking:

Rob, wise advice to anyone willing to listen. I too run my own business, have for 35 years and haven't needed face book and I've witnessed quite a few relationships destroyed because of it.
Slow, a hibernation usually last longer then a day. That wasn't even a nap. :lol:

sorry rob. you cant run a cow bussness from a newspaper its to costly and it doenst have the coverage. pretty hard to read a newspaper when your going down the road in a propane truck. fact is facebook is a very important tool for us ranchers and farmers. we get our weather off it in the morings our local news our national news and everyone listes stuff for sale we need like hay and cow pasture . we adverties for hired hand here on our ranching operations and we network on facebook. networking is a big tool with farming and ranching nowdays. for a city guy and a city type of bussnes you could run it with out facebook for use young kids and the new modern world of high tec facebook is to valubale a tool to not use it in the farming and ranching world.

you would have to know what the bad joke was to know why I got mad and I am AM not repeating it here.

for the information and every one that met my last relationship its was much more than a internet date. end of subject I have moved on with my life. fact is I was talking about a bad joke on facebook so what ever. ...................but for me I have fully embraced the new tecnogly in my farming and ranching world and I used it to find cow pasture this summer 300 miles away from home and I still have my cows becuase of facebook today. I actually in may saved the hole herd when hay was in so short of supply by finding some left over hay from last year with facebook while pumping propane in a thousand gallon propane tank at work.
