Beyond flirting I don't see the appeal I'm afraid.

Sounds like spam to me.



There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:no it's fun!

i like connecting with strangers any way i can, even if it's just smiling on the tube. People ignore eachother far toomuch in my opinion and it's just another way of saying 'hi, we're all humans here! how are you?'

sometimes i leave random messages on people's message borads, to email adresses, or sometimes on noticeboards in college and stuff. I like people who come out of their shells and make new friends!


I had a dream that my friend had a
strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.

Posted:it seems quite big in the uk i've done it a few times, and its really easy to do, you just create a "contact" name that is a message i.e. instead of a phonebook entry being called Bob or Susan it just says " hello" then send the contact like a business card via bluetooth. Its a bit fiddly cos you have to have all your greatings already stored up but wont be long before they start creating programs to do it. Its about the only decent use for Bluetooth that I know of.

i dont think it is because you can always turn off bluetooth on your phone then you wont receive any messages at all.
