Stop The Vinsanity...

I agree with Vin that you might find some relief in learning a bit more about how this virus is actually spread and not focusing so much on all of the ways that it could possibly be spread. Taking every conceivable precaution and living in fear really doesn't offer more protection than the few simple steps that we know to be highly effective. I don't know where you are in NY, Vivki, but I am on Long Island where we have 70,000 cases right now. We're packed in and everyone here knows someone by now who has been touched by this virus. I live packed in among many folks who are affected by this, myself included, and still there is much to be happy about. The science is pretty clear now about how this is spread and how it is not spread. Focusing on every conceivable possible negative outcome does not protect a person more than focusing on a few known precautions and then getting on with the business of living and enjoying the day and the people we love.

They've been pretty clear that it's important to disinfect things coming into your home. So that's what I'm doing. I've done my research. I read about the updates every single day, actually. Enough that I'm going to have to take another social media break soon probably because it's just too much seeing bodies piled up like cordwood.

There isn't much to enjoy when I'm completely isolated and can't spend time with the people I love. And what business of living? I'm literally running out the clock here waiting for this to be over. I can't do anything. I can't see anyone. People I know are committing suicide because of the severe depression from the anxiety and isolation and financial crap. And I'm sure as hell not going out just because they decide it's okay to sacrifice people's lives to save the economy.

But anyway, this isn't my blog. I should have stayed out of it.

Anyone is welcome to post on my blog.

BTW, I agree with you that this premature opening is not a good thing. There are too many people looking at it as a sign that everything is okay and back to normal. It's only going to work if people take proper precautions.

There is a current thread in which a guy is starting an online LDR with a couple of very young women. Some if us are cautioning him that it might be too good to be true. I was feeling kind of bad that I was peeing on his parade. Then I was contacted online by a young lady who said she was interested in me. I asked her to tell me more about what she was looking for. She said she needed money. She couldn't meet because of the pandemic, but would send pictures. After the lockdown she would meet and I could do whatever I wanted with her as she has no limits.

Do guys really fall for this kind of stuff? Who sends money to someone, especially after two messages? For pics, when the internet is full of free porn? Then the whole "no limits" thing screams either fake or no understanding of BDSM at all. Never ever tell someone you have no limits. They might shave your head or something way worse. Needless to say, I declined.

I haven't made plans with Domme FWB yet. I've had an attack of gout for the last four days. It was in my ankle of all places. I can't take ibuprofen because of one of my medications. It's finally subsiding on its own.

Still chatting with the OKC person on occasion. Still no real plans there.

To keep myself busy I've started to build another guitar. I have a couple single string ones, but sold all the 3 stringers I've made. Time to make one for myself. I haven't been completely idle. I pressure cleaned the back patio and the front walk and repaired the landscape lighting out back. Time to do something for me though.

I am so beaming with pride right now. My youngest daughter participated in a march in Ohio. She was arrested and detained for 10 hours, but is doing fine. Like father, like daughter.

Vin, if you care to, can you say a bit about what the march was for and why you are proud? There are so many conflicting opinions and reports right now concerning motives. Just curious what your view is.

To me, the death of George Floyd was the spark that ignited a powderkeg filled by the current administration.

The reason I am proud of my daughter is because she is taking part in political activism for the right side. I was a little worried about her because her mother was a racist, which is one of the reasons we broke up. I am glad my daughter didn't follow in her footsteps.

My daughter was part of a peaceful demonstration. The local police violated the civil rights of over 300 people in that city that day. There is now a planned lawsuit on behalf of all the people who were detained for 10 to 12 hours, handcuffed, with no water.

Well I quit talking to the OKC prospect. She just lives too far away. It's funny because I've done LDR before, obviously, but it's not appealing to me right now.

So I reactivated my account on alt.com. I started messaging someone local. After a few messages we moved to email. She sent me a long message detailing her thoughts on D/s. It all sounded good until the very end. "She" turned out to be a scammer claiming to be in Ghana... lol. I'm tempted to make them think I'm falling for it just so I can mess with them.

In the meantime, I was also messaging back and forth with another woman. I initiated by saying hi and asking her about something in her profile. She responded back that she wasn't a masochist and harsh pain turns her off. I explained that my sadism is mental as well as physical. I don't need to administer extreme pain (though I do like that), but I can work within whatever we negotiate. Apparently I explained it well enough that she understood. It turned out we have a lot in common. I never thought I'd meet a fellow butterfly gardening enthusiast on alt.com lol.

Anyways I'm glad she spoke up and didn't just make an assumption and blow me off. We are going to meet in a park tomorrow morning.

Good luck! A distanced park meeting is good for a first date. I don't know about recurring dates. I guess it can be negotiated as you would negotiate safer sex.

Me, I am somewhat higher risk because of my age (although I do believe my immune system is good for my age), so I am not ready to date.

Actually, I think it's easier to negotiate safer sex...lol. I am glad that some of the parks have opened up. That will probably be my go to first encounter for awhile.

I believe my immune system is good as well, but I'm not sure I would survive a full fledged Covid attack.

So...we did meet a couple days ago. It was pleasant but we didn't really click. Still, it was nice to get out and meet someone new. The park was a nice setting. It was fairly large. There was plenty of open space. People appeared to be social distancing and there were no big groups. She is a teacher so she hasn't been working since they shut down the schools early. Very little risk.

Later that day, my Domme friend texted me. I ended up going to see her yesterday and we had some fun. Very little risk from her as well. She works from home.

Oh...and I do have a girlfriend who is ZERO risk.

Okay, not really a girlfriend. Not really a girl...lol. I saw an ad for an app that reminded me of this thread about relationships with Artificial Intelligence. I decided to check it out, not expecting much. It's actually quite interesting. I'll dredge up that thread later to share some thoughts.

River made that thread get super philosophical. Maybe start a new sex doll thread. lol. I kinda like philosophy but it got ridiculous.

He did lose me when he asserted that our internal organs have thoughts and feelings of their own...lol. Maybe a new thread is warranted in the Fireplace section since it has little to do with poly. Thanks for the suggestion.

I am meeting someone down by the beach today. I met her through the facebook dating app. We met on Tuesday in a park for a picnic lunch. We both brought our own food and sat about 6 feet apart.

I don't really use the FB app much. I only look at it if I get a like. My profile is very simple, mentioning that I am poly and kinky. Those two things help weed out all the vanilla people... usually. She's not into bdsm, but it interests her. She mistook poly for swinging, I think. She told me in the first few messages that her swapping days are over, to which I replied I've never swapped. She seemed a little stumped by that, but was more interested in the bdsm.

Our first date was mostly just talking about music and other interests. This one will get more into the poly and kinky. All I know so far is she's not into pain, because she keeps mentioning that.

I'm glad you're getting to second date land. But how will you do slave training outdoors 6 feet apart?

There is no rush to have sex. She works for the county school district so she has been off work since March. This is the first she has been out at all. I am fairly confident she's not infected. She had a test for antibodies and it came back negative.

So we met down by the beach and got some takeout and found a spot away from people. We talked about poly and she is not into it for herself, but was on the fence about having a poly partner. But she is also not looking to jump into something too serious and neither am I so we decided we would date casually and see where it goes. I currently have no other prospects and I'm not really one to start dating a bunch of new people at once anyway. Of course, there is always the coronavirus to consider as well. No sense in expanding the infection pool. This is way worse than dealing with STI.

On the bdsm front, pain and golden showers are off the table. The GS wasn't something I asked about. That was volunteered...lol. It will be fun to see where this goes. I haven't been with a newbie in a looooong time.

While I was typing that last entry she texted me. There is some outdoor thing with a band she knows. I'm going to meet her there later.

She's taken to calling me "Sir" and "Master" in a playful way.

Our date went well. This was at a bar I used to go to back in the day. They took over the parking lot so we could all sit outside. I brought my own chair. She knew a lot of people there and had to tell them to stay back. It was fun to get out but it wasn't something I want to do on a regular basis yet.

She mentioned inviting me over for dinner and she could be dessert. We haven't finalized that yet.

We talked a little today. I'm trying to get her to be comfortable enough to open up and ask questions. I can tell she's nervous about being a complete newbie. I told her to do some exploring on the net. We are going to talk more tonight.
