Deleting Orkut

I finaly did it. Deleted my Orkut account. I got all these weirdos asking to be friends, OK, maybe there was one normal person, but for the rest, mostly weirdos, and I couldn't understand why. Before deleting it, I went back to read what I had written and a sort of lightbulb went off.

OK, there was this one guy from India (where else?) who wanted to get together for fun and games on his visit to this, our very own, teh tareky emerald isle. His "groups" consisted of porn sites, mostly. Ugh! He even propositioned my dear, straight-as-an-arrow cousin, and I thought, geez, you sure are desperate.

Well, anyway, my friend Hrish could have told me why. On re-reading my profile, I noticed that under "activities" I put: You mean other than sex? Under sexual preferences, I put: bi-curious. Are you starting to see the problem here? Because I sure am. As for my dear cousin, um...I kinda wrote her profile. Which means she got lambasted by the same number of creeps and weirdos.

The last straw was funnily enough, neither a creep nor a weirdo. Just someone who disagreed with my taste in books. I can take a lot of things. But not someone who disagrees with my choice of reading matter. Or who disses my favourite authors.

So you see...the big DELETE.

Anyway, I have enough friends.

Hi babe! Guess who this is? Hint: am very much a virgin when it comes to posting comments on blogs. Another hint: I ate so much of your choc cake before I left for a butt-freezing environment, that I felt like I'd never EVER want to have chocolate again. Am, of course, munching on some dark chocolate as I write this ;-).

tch tch! without u on orkut, who'll put these author mailgning slimes in their place?!?

but yeah, sometimes orkut can be get really annoying. and how come everyone who approaches you always say, "will you do friendship with me?"

why can't there be a hunk of guy who comes across my profile and leaves an eloquently written note complimenting my looks and intelligence. with no proposition atthe end of it!

Some people just don't know how to behave; weird sex is one thing but trashing a person's taste in books is just wrong!

Yeah you do! :) But seriously miss you there! :( Oh well all good things finally come to an end. Sometime even I get that urge to delete my profile but then I meet so many of my old lost friends that it becomes impossible to click Delete...

Jenn said...

Yes, but you see I never bumped into any old friends there. None at all. Just kept bumping into weirdoes. So I had no choice. Besides, I still chat witchoo over the email or messenger...
