After a long day of work one day, I decided to free my mind by visiting a site I haven't been to in a long time: Friendster.com.
Now the Friendster hype is something I completely missed... missed not because I was too slow but because I was too quick.
The first time I learned about Friendster was in 2002. Back then, few people I knew were on Friendster, I went around meeting whatever friends I had and quickly grew out of it. I grew out of it by the time it became really popular!
Since then.. months go by before I even login to Friendster but just a few days ago I decided it was time for me to pay my quarterly visit.
BEHOLD!!! MY PROFILE PAGE ON FRIENDSTER.COM!!!
Yes it's true... my picture there hasn't been updated in 2 years and my profile still says that I'm "studying in London" and "In a Relationship".
Another shameful thing about my Friendster profile is... I haven't reached the Holy Grail of 500 friends!
So many of my friends have 3 Friendster accounts just to be able to insert 1,500 friends... and here I am... still stuck at 200 or something.
There was a link on my profile that said "New Testimonials" so I decided to check it out.
There were testimonials that were written 1 year ago by some friends and THEY ARE STILL PENDING APPROVAL. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...
Now guys go to Friendster for different reasons.
Some to genuinely catch up with their old friends, but mostly to look at girls and send *winks* or messages. *winks* NEVER WORK since it tells the girl that you have no balls to even send her a "HI" message... and messages... well.. I've met a number of girls that way before.
But I've passed that stage...
So now when I login to Friendster... I go to see what my ex-girlfriends are up to.
Let me tell all of you one thing.
Your ex-girlfriends... especially on Friendster... ALWAYS LOOK LIKE THEY'RE HAPPIER WITHOUT YOU...
It doesn't matter if they really are or not.
Even if your ex is in Siberia eating snow... SHE WILL STILL MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THEY'RE HAPPIER AND NEVER BEEN BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU.
And ladies.. don't you think that we guys don't know your tricks!!!
We know it's ALL AN ACT!!!
But touche ladies... it still works :(
So I started looking at what my ex-girlfriends were up to.
There was the very first one I had (on the right), who still looked great.
There was the one who was always up for a party.
There was the one I loved the most.
And the one I never ever deserved to begin with.
And guess what...
THEY ALL LOOK HAPPIER WITHOUT ME...
