Technology...some times a good thing!

Hello ladies and gentlemen! So I just simply had to share this story with you as it is so random. Not sure how it fits into the world of JZZRGRL and being classy. But you be the judge.

Yesterday, got a text from a Cali phone number (not in my phone). Here is how it went:

707: Hi again
JZZRGRL: Might be wrong number, who is this? (Being classy, didn't want someone out there to think the other person was ignoring them...BEEN ignored, don't like it)
707: It's TEXT GUY (you know my rules about protecting the guilty), how's the puppy? Doing better?
JZZRGRL: Sorry wrong number.
707: This isn't RANDOM CHICK? Oh now, I feel stupid, sorry.
JZZRGRL: It's OK, don't feel stupid. Good luck.
707: Thanks, I am sure I just wrote it wrong then. Are you good at relationship advice?

That's all he needed to ask, because I am SOOOO awesome at relationships, that is why I am still single at 40 and can't even keep a date for more than a few months.

S0, back to TEXT GUY, OK, so not to bore you with the details. But I texted with this random TEXT GUY all day. He is married (for 17 years). RANDOM CHICK is somebody he works with. And I know you are all saying...oh boy, here we go, this guy is slimy and trying to pick you up. But it wasn't that way AT ALL. He loves his wife, would never cheat, thinks she is really hot, but let's just say he needed advice on his desires and how to translate them into spicing up the physical life with his wife. Yes, I was his marriage/sex counselor via text for day. And it was not gross, it was actually refreshing that some guy after 17 years of marriage wants to figure out how to continue to make it work with his wife. Granted, his methods are a bit unorthodox. But there was no harm in it AT ALL!

So that gets me to my message for today. You all know I am big proponent of phone and face to face conversations (reference previous blog post Oct 1, 2009, are we creating social morons?). But sometimes texting is OK. Case in point, I was trying to be nice to let this guy know that he had the wrong number and we ended up having a connection over text. When I first met HT, I didn't talk to him on the phone for like three weeks. We got to know each other through text and email. BUT when it came time to ask me out, he does have class and actually called me to ask me out. And then our first date was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G because we had gotten the awkward stuff out of the way via text.

So the bottom line, ladies and gentlemen seriously, is be classy with technology as well. And if you have a human connection with someone awesome, be careful, and have fun. This was such an awesome story, I just had to share.

It's the weekend, keep it classy. Drink and be merry. Found a great new bar in the area..the Bedford, bar in a bank vault, so fun. Go see my man, Justin! Remember, the devil will be serving drinks in hell, so join my party if you are going there.
