XXX Chats

The addictive feeling was more compelling than desktop online dating.

Connecting required a hardwired modem—the origin of that iconic sound so popular in movies when machines make that initial screeching handshake with one another.

From traveling abroad a lot as a child and adolescent, I learned I liked meeting people from all over the place, generally a fun and enriching thing to do.

Bulletin boards felt like a kind of traveling, but even then there were some obnoxious characters who, looking back, were kind of "proto-trolls".

In spite of a few informative relationships of different sorts, I met my partner the old-fashioned way, at a mutual friend's social event.

Online dating always felt partly artificial, and transition from that to a "real" relationship sketchy.
