Heavens! All these virtual weddings and affairs abound of late and I wonder how it happens. Are they borne of the chat rooms? Or just whirl-wind romances? Since Crunchy’s first thread on the matter I’ve been tempted to offer myself up for virtual matrimony–admit it, you’ve at least thought about it too–but I have to confess that the actual ‘virtual marriage’ is not as exciting to me as the ‘virtual courting.’
Now, have I got it wrong? All you virtually married/engaged/whatever please tell me…was there courtship? How long was it? What was it like? Am I just being old fashioned? Is virtual courtship a thing of the past?
Virtual marriage is an important (virtual) step. How did you know you had the right virtual mate?
Well struuter, if you check out my thread, you can see exactly how it happened. I was groggy from sleep and bored at work just trying to keep myself entertained. All the courtship between littlebit and myself is in that thread. I honestly didn’t think I’d get anybody to accept my virtual proposal. I was just being goofy and killing time. I think littlebit and I had more interaction with each other in that one thread than we did the entire time I’d been registered.
It seems though, that little*bit is having second thoughts. We were supposed to tie the virtual knot Sunday, but I was left standing at the virtual alter. I may have to ask someone else to be my virtual bride. Luckiy, I have a virtual stripper mistress who may be interested . . .
Well, since nobody but uberDave has thrown their hat in, then allow me to offer. Struut, I’d be honored to be your virtual boy-toy. Hell, it’s already happened on weirddave’s ship, but making it official would be fun.
So, consider me in the running, struut! After seeing all these virtual weddings, it’s looking like a trend, and I want on board!
I’ll come up with some credentials and/or publicity stunts to win you over when I’ve got time. For right now, though, I’m taking suggestions!
Hamadryad, I hope you’ll appreciate this and find it amusing…and it’s certainly taught me to make sure I cover all my bases when I post. When I wrote that blurb that you quoted about everyone thinking about it–the first thought that came into my mind was that you were among the people who most likely didn’t think about it.
So that’ll teach me to generalize.
Yes Crunchy, I got you drunk and took advantage of you in a way you’ve never been taken advantage of before. You don’t remember the champagne, the roses, the toffee flavored butt lotion? I’m surprised… I remember it warmly. I’ve still got the pictures!
uber, well thank you. I’m flattered. How very sweet…
Jester, what can I say? You’d be willing to take valuable time away from your campaign for me? Wouldn’t wooing a strumpet hurt your chances of election?
Hey, I know I’m not the first, but I’ve been flirting withstruuter for some time now.
Just last week, I proposed to begin the courting with said Ms. struuter (and I know, IRL it’s Mrs. struuter, but this is virtual, so there). This is courting, not marriage. Just so’s all y’all don’t go a’thinkin’ your doing something new here.

Also, Rachelle, what ever happened to that thong you had at the lawn chair party? Just curious.
