Ok, so I regularly visit Facebook, which is kind of like myspace where everyone visits each other's pages and add friends, etc. Now in Facebook, you have the option to "poke" someone, which is something like a little alert for the other member. You can send pokes, messages and a friend request to pretty much anyone but you can set your option so that only your "friends" can view your profile. Yesterday, this guy "pokes" me on Facebook, and I asked him if I know him, and he said no, that's the only way he can start a conversation with me. He asked if he was interested in getting to know somebody new, well I thought, isn't that what Facebook is for? Connecting with others...? So I said, sure. He then proceeded to ask for my MSN, and I replied saying that I rarely go on MSN. He sent a message back saying "Well then you're saying I should ask for your cell # then." I was like "Umm no...I guess you could add me on MSN, but I rarely go on." I gave my MSN to him, since I really don't go on anyways! Today, well, I signed onto MSN to talk to my friend and guess what...he already added me and immediately messaged me, and requested to start webcam I ignored his request and signed off after awhile to do homework, but after I was done, I wanted to talk to my boyfriend on MSN. He messaged me AGAIN and wanted to know if I had webcam. Anyway, here is the conversation: Him: hi Me: hello Him: hows it goin? Me: pretty good, you? Him: Just got home Him: do u have a webcam? Me: nope. Me: i used to, too lazy to hook it up to my new computer [I was lying] Him: it'd be nice to see ya Me: lol, honestly i don't look very different than in pics. Me: or better, for that matter. Him: send me some unpublished ones Me: sorry, what i have on facebook is it! [I was lying...obviously I wasn't going to send pictures of myself to a random guy! I have over 1000+ pics on my computer of my friends & I] Him: so where do u live? Him: i'm in richmond Me: not in BC, lol Him: awww bummer Him: i gotta stop poking girls from out of province, it gets me nowhere lol Me: yes...you should. Me: if you're looking for someone to poke, you better find someone else Him: lol, ciao hunnie. I was like This event has reminded me how creepy of a place the internet can be!!! After that, I proceeded to my facebook and set my profile to ONLY viewable by friends...I don't want another creepy guy talking to me!!!
