Subject: You Love Your Computer More Than Me!
I was speaking to a girlfriend of mine who mentioned she had developed a close friendship with a man she was corresponding with through email but that their correspondence had to stop because his wife was feeling uncomfortable about the amount of time he was spending on the computer chatting to another woman.
I knew another woman who spent so much time On-line playing backgammon and chatting with her ICQ friends that one day her husband picked up the computer monitor and smashed it onto the floor. Soon afterwards she and her husband seperated. I spoke with her husband some time later about their separation. He felt that much of their marriage problems were due to the fact she spent way too much time with her internet friends and not enough time with him.
Made me wonder if other Mudcatters find they have family members who feel somewhat neglected due to the amount of time they spend on the computer.
