Guy Communicator

Communicate how you really feel

When faced with a relationship that is not where it should be; very often this has been the result of poor communication. Many aspects of your relationship my need to be addressed and your most sincere feelings expressed. Rather than stutter or stumblethrough a number of half baked ideas and a poorly thought through conclusion or action plan this is my idea.

Relationships fail for a number of reasons:

I would propose a website that aids an individual to focus on key areas eg Work, kids, marriage, commitment, alcohol, drugs, travel etc

A URL could then be sent to the 'other party' and they could browse the areas of interest - interegating the fields that they feel relevant. Memories, music, locations could then be assosiated with your relationship together and the 'other party' may not think that you are an insensative fool,arrogant bastard or Stonehead - but the caring and romantic individual they once knew you for and that you'd like to become again.

       If you're having trouble communicating with your babe of the moment, I think disintermediating it all through a web site is definitely *not* the way to go (and, in fact, likely to confirm that "insensitive fool" impression). A few honest heart-to-heart discussions should either clear the air or land you with someone more compatible.

       Helpful Hint #1 - As long as you even ponder whether or not grass is a god, you will be a fool.

       Yep, it's a no-brainer; grass is as much of a god as any.

       Wait a minute Doc, sometimes the written word (in the form of a heartfelt letter or note) will help relationships work out their differences where verbal exchanges are just not working. This idea does sound a little bit too much like work, but then relationships sometimes are, not only the latest girl/boyfriend deal, but especially (gulp) marriage! On the other hand, there is no question in my mind that grass, of the lawn or pipe variety, no matter, is NOT a god. But hey, its just a handle, its halfbaked... and there it is.

       Not related, but I was expecting a Star Trek style communicator to be located in the crotchal area... which would explain why some guys always scratch down there... they're signaling Captain Picard, eh?   

       As for the idea, I like it, being one who enjoys this kind of sheet on the web. Kinda antisocial though.

       "I am NOT an insensitive fool or an arrogant bastard. It says so right on my web page, along with some pictures of cats and some Sting lyrics. Go plug in the URL and leave me the hell alone -- don't you know this is a tie game?"   

       Think it would work?

       I keep reading this as "Gay communicator".......

       Psst, [UnaBubba], Celine Dion songs already *have* secret messages.

       // Like what? Ya got any good examples? //   

       "You want to die"
"Life sucks"
"Why not take a bath with a toaster"
"Wouldn't your ears feel better if you filled them with cement?"
"Try a game of pin the tail on the drunken commando"
"Drowning is relatively enjoyable"
