Scarlett and I

There’s a line in Gone with the Wind one of the catty young ladies says about Scarlett: “Men may [like to] flirt with such women, but they don’t marry them.”

About Bad4 it could be said, “Men may [like to] chat with such women, but they don’t marry them.”

Then again, Scarlett went and married three times.

Then also again, Scarlett is a fictional character in a romantic novel.

  1. Perhaps your online persona of Bad4 is a fictional character as well. So the ones chatting here are speaking with a constructed character — unless you are referring to the men you meet in RL.

  2. Do you want to marry a guy like Rhett Butler though? (Read the novel, there’s a scene with some unfortunate implications I won’t say here).

  3. I know, let’s just say I’m an anti-fan of Gone with the Wind (something about how even though I’m part Confederate I’m no fan of the pro-slavery nonsense in the book as well ideas like all Yankees are evil, it’s a shame the Confederacy lost the civil war, let’s make evil characters look good, etc).

    As per bad4 being like Scarlett I’d hope that’s not the case, but then I haven’t met her in RL so I can’t say. Of course the only reason I’d want to meet her in RL is to see if she’d be a good wife……. for my friend.

  4. “About Bad4 it could be said, “Men may [like to] chat with such women, but they don’t marry them.””

    Could you expound a bit more on this?

    And why was this post under construction and inaccessible for a long time?

  5. The post wasn’t “under construction.” It was prematurely posted and taken down immediately. However, to keep it from showing up in RSS feeds, I changed the content.

    The statement was based on an observation that not only do I apparently have little trouble talking to most guys, but many seem to actively seek me out for conversation.
