The idea for Converging Lives came from some of the conversations, I have had with people when playing a word game on the net. I still play that game and it never ceases to amaze me the people who use it as a dating….chat up….stalking site, sex meet site. Sometimes one can get an intention of the new player by their thumbnail picture like full on genitals or a model pose but others may not have a picture of themselves but of their favourite football club mascot or a general scene. I know that lots of women have stopped using thumbnail pictures of themselves to try to avoid being hit on. It’s also sometimes revealing to look at the player statics playing 1200 days won 24 games, lost 25, resigned 12 now that isn’t many games in that amount of time, maybe that person doesn’t have the time to play often, or maybe they are just using the game as a chat up vehicle. Always interesting to see. The game has a chat function and I am not adverse to chatting to people as I play and usually say Hi at the beginning of a game even if that is the sum total of the conversation for the duration of the game.
I did not grow up with Tinder or with selfies being the norm and I get somewhat miffed with people who hit on me sexually, without bothering to find out whether I might be up for sexy chat or an intimate meet. Or in fact anything about me at all. It’s not that I can’t deal with the issue I sure can. It just seems so discourteous to assume that a randomly generated female playing partner (who is playing a word game), would be up for sex chat, or a meet for casual sex and not to have the manners to at least do a little chat to find out if the woman is interested.
So what do others make of this situation?
I hasten to say that I know that there are lots of women who play the game who are happy to sex chat and women predators on the site and that is their choice.
It’s just the notion of straight in with the chat that just so annoys me.
I have included a conversation that happened to me recently for your amusement.
His name sums it up I Think!
too easy: Hey:
too easy: You look hot
sama: Yes well must be the weather . Lol .

Soo easy: No Real life . I want A chance to take you. Then i have to slap your ass when im fuckina you.
sama: Perhaps you should find somebody else to play. I don’t have sex with people I have never met. I find it insulting that you can’t be bothered to find out a few things about me before suggesting that.
Soo easy: I really want to know you before that happens:). I Think you Like beautiful and interesting.
Soo easy: Is 25 okay for you?
sama: Jeez I am not Mrs Robinson! Lol
