When I was a teenager, all we had were two cans with a string pulled tight between them. Or letters folded into paper air planes to be flown over your neighbor's yard. But I lived in a cave and had to spend all of my time tending the fire and chipping spear heads out of flint to fend off the smilodons.

Okay, the truth is I never flew those paper plane love notes over fences but once, and that was actually long before I became a teenager. I think I was about six or so when I did that. Milk was still delivered in glass bottles to the door back then! (Though I'm of the generation which saw the last of that.) Imagine that! Early Gen Xers are now old and grey. Sniff. Buch of slackers!) ... Anyway, she was real pretty. Yes, a girl! Sigh.

(I come from the UseNet age).
Me too. I participated regularly (and spent way too much time) in a number of Usenet groups for a few years in the early days of the (publicly available) Internet. I also dabbled in IRC for a bit, but group posting (be it Usenet, listserv, or Web forum) is more my style. Jane, we may have crossed paths before in alt.heinlein.

I'm coming up on two years here shortly. It has been an interesting couple of years.

Dramatis Personae:
Me: Al99, poly, heterosexual male, 50's
Becky: married to Al99, poly, heterosexual female, late 30's
Bouncingbetty: ldr girlfriend to Al99, poly, pansexual female, early 30's
Jill: local fwb to Al99, heterosexual female, early 50's.
Ben: Becky's medium-ldr bf, heterosexual male, 40's
Mike: Becky's local fwb, heterosexual male, early 50's.
