blackplanet, though?

Monday, December 15, 2008
it has come to my attention that people i know and regularly interact with use blackplanet as a dating service. it's like their free match.com or eharmony.com. im all for saving a dollar, but is this really a viable, recession-proof option?


the girl i know who uses it says she's prepositioned by married men repeatedly. this dude just told me married women hit him up on a regular basis, too. in addition, there are plenty of guys with strange fetishes who try to hook up with my girl.


i don't know...i dont know if i need it that bad. i barely feel safe meeting folks the old-fashioned way. more days than not, lately, i wish i had a boyfriend but is that how i have to get one?

Blackplanet still exists? WOW! I definitely was on there in college, but it was like myspace before myspace. Then when myspace came out I thought everyone abandoned blackplanet. I guess not.

I absolutely hate meeting people on social networking sites. If I didn't go to match.com or eharmony.com, then I'm not interested in dating you. Don't friend request me, don't poke me, don't send me any notes. Ick. Ick. Ick.

LOL @ T's don't poke me, friend request me...lol
Social networking is trying to take over the world but meeting a mate online is not for me.

Noooooo stay away from BlackPlanet, I heard real creatures sneak around that site. The grapevine tells me that going to the gym puts you in touch with "nice" men. LOL, proceed with caution.
