Subject: You Love Your Computer More Than Me!
From: Little Neophyte
Date: 27 Mar 00 - 01:31 PM

I was speaking to a girlfriend of mine who mentioned she had developed a close friendship with a man she was corresponding with through email but that their correspondence had to stop because his wife was feeling uncomfortable about the amount of time he was spending on the computer chatting to another woman.

I knew another woman who spent so much time On-line playing backgammon and chatting with her ICQ friends that one day her husband picked up the computer monitor and smashed it onto the floor. Soon afterwards she and her husband seperated. I spoke with her husband some time later about their separation. He felt that much of their marriage problems were due to the fact she spent way too much time with her internet friends and not enough time with him.

Made me wonder if other Mudcatters find they have family members who feel somewhat neglected due to the amount of time they spend on the computer.

Naw, I just get them online too!

And I have been assured that one's 3D love can do things one's virtual loves cannot, and encouraged to play and seek things I need to bring back into our 3D world. It helps that I am extremely open with my partner about my online activities (so be advised, all you 'CatPals o' Mine!). So the occasional neglect, perceived or actual, doesn't last very long.

'Course I waited till I was nearly 40 to pick the winner. And I tend that 3D love with care and intention, too.

Well, my on line life is rich and varied with a wide range of compassionate, erudite, witty, articulate and disparate points of view, all coming together on the monitor.

BBW, my acronym for Best Beloved wife, on the other hand, has one (usually) point of view, which is also wiity, erudite, articulate, and often compassionate too! So its comparable, except that she is but one voice. And my online life is scores of voices of similar caliber. So I can see where it could be a problem.

But as the lioness said when mocked by the whelping hyena -- yes, it is only one. But that one is a lion.

And sad though I would be, if it came to a fork in the road, I would be off-line in half a minute and my cable modem sold at a swap meet. And BBW knows it too. But it is not a problem because she spends as much time on her own online life as I on mine. I was worried about not spending enoug tme with Barky, but then she joined the Cat too. Smart kid.

My parents complain all the time, but I multitask to make them happy, and they seem to enjoy it. I sit at the computer in the dining room, while they watch TV in the living room, I yell out suggestions, comments, and witticism from my swivel chair. That way I can interact with both AT the same time, provided my well loved (at least in my family) non-sequitor humor while writing music to lyrics by a net buddy who lives a few thousand miles away (which is what I'm doing now, actually)!

Naw...Rog is a vicarious Mudcat because I share so much of it with him; it also gives us alone time, which we both need. Usually, if one of us is upstairs on the computer, the other is downstairs watching a favourite program or working on something else, in his case broadcast equipment, in mine, music, or reading. We get along better and are happier with some time apart.

Our computer is a gift, in a way, from his mother, as we bought it with some of his inheritance. This happened just before my physical activity became more restricted and has been a gawdsend, mindsaver, eye/worldopener and there isn't a day that goes by that one of us doesn't give a silent thanks to her for this blessing.

I think it depends on the people, how much they trust and love one another and how much the are NOT codependent on one another.

Good thread, LilNeo

I once had a girlfriend complain "You love that truck more than you love me." I responded "And ... ?"

Computer time vs. family time is not so much how much as when. Your own time, whenever it is, is your time. Just don't put the kids to bed early so you can have more "time to your self".

C, the proposition is logically tenable but humanly provides a very tenuous (not to say treacherous) footing for real living. It is one of those things that takes infinite steps to disprove and therefore gets very attractive to sophomores who want to impress ladies on campus. I can guarantee you if you go around and condemn all your friends to the status of figments, they'll find friends more ready to believe in them reciprocally. It's much nicer that way -- here...I'll believe in your figment, and you can believe in mine!

'The Lament of the Computer Widow' in DigiTrad was mentioned by Dick greenhaus, but I can not seem to find it.
Is that an old thread I overlooked?
And if so, I would grately appreciate if another Mudcatter would be able to blue clicky it onto this thread.
I would really like to read it.

Maybe I should take up Neil Lowes suggestion to me on the Cyberspace Friendship thread to write a sociology research paper on this subject. Lord knows I spend enough time around here analyzing the psychology.

Actually, truthfully, I wouldn't be so into the internet if my mom spent more time with me and less time with her computer. She's always doing something that has to do with a computer. She's a damned good computer consultant, so she's almost always away consulting. Then, when she gets home, she works more for her clients, or for her regular work. Always on the computer. And, as ceit said, my dad introduced me to the 'Cat, so he can't complain.

Karen actually enjoys the 'Cat too and stays up on what's going on........I think a lot of the things that happen as far as relationships and the like go are very weird. These guys who have affairs on the Net were probably heading that way to begin with. Like life in 3-D, it is what you make it. But I will agree that its much nicer to live at Mudcat than in most towns I've lived in. Rarely do you get a group of people together who are so well versed in so many topics.

What Communist plot is that, C? I had it beat into me when I was your age, by a North Philly cop, that I was part of one, but hadn't even known about it until then.

Actually, though, circular logic is a Commie favorite used for suppressing enemies of the State. When you reflect on it, communism is an extension in some respects of the same unworkable notion that solipsism is. And just about as successful. Tell them they are figments, and your friends will go off to find better friends. Tell them "From each according to their ability, to each according to their need", and sooner or later your citizens will find other means of survival, not because it isn't a sweet idea but because it doesn't work. The truth may not be nice, but it kinda stays true regardless.

Now, Mr. Amos, you said, "From each according to their ability, to each according to their need". That might not have worked too well in a societal context as in pinko commie structures, BUT, in my experience, it can work mighty well in the spiritual realm of cooperative give and take, IMO.

boy, those cops didn't know what the haitch they were talling about, eh? Course, ya knwo there's still some who'll make that claim. One fo my favourite bumper sitckers a frined of mine sported was "I might be straight, but I am not narrow!"

Kat:

I will have to defer to yer wisdom on spiritual matters, where the boundaries of self-concern are as little more permeable.

On the mortal plane, where "self-interest" (enlightened or otherwise) is a driving force, it doesn't work because it chokes the engine of market renewal and growth, undermines innovation and demotivates the able, while motivating and elevating the inept.

Come to think, of it our socialized educational programs do that too. As do our capitalist management cultures. Maybe it's just a biped thing...
