I was telling people I was going to do this a long time now and now I think it’s time. I am going to delete my MySpace account. Since I don’t have any use for it anymore. All it dose is help people jump to conclusions about what kind of person I am, with out even talking to me first. Most of the time if it’s a negative conclusion, they just miss understood the facts and if they would just talk to me they would realize that. I don’t have time to write in my blog and keep my MySpace politically correct (so people want assume they hate me).
It’s funny, when I tell people I am going to do this I get two statements back. The first statement is, “Good I hate MySpace too!” and the second is, “If you delete your MySpace how will I talk to you”? I first one doesn’t bother me and I was expecting to hare it, but I can’t get over the second.
Are these people joking? Do they really think that if I get rid of my account that they will never talk to me again? How did we get in contact before? I bet you could call me or send me an email, if you remember how. It amazes me how people are so dependent on a website.
That is the second reason I am doing this. I don’t want to promote something that people are using to replace real human interaction. If you are my friend then you should know that I am going to talk to you, and that I don’t need a MySpace account to make plans with you. I think the only people I am going to miss out on are the ones that I don’t see everyday. But still they could just email or visit this blog to track me down.
I don’t know why my feelings about this site changed so much? Maybe it’s because I am getting older, or the fact I enjoy a good face to face conversation and hate having one that takes place in over 25 MySpace messages.
So in closing I would like to say stop reading about people and start listening to them. It’s amazing what you can learn about someone with a good conversation over coffee.
