What's your take on dating sites?

What do you guys think of dating sites?
I personally hated them and thought they where a waste of time, why would some one pay the Internet to find them a partner?
Then I spoke to other people who are on dating sites and have met people most of them said they did it for the safety side of it.
I wanted them to explain more (I never actually thought of this)
Most of the ladies said that the dating site basically vets them for you (fake from real) so you don't have to worry as much as trying to date a guy in real life.
Most of the ladies said they didn't have time for that type of thing so the website was great because it did it for them.
The men said pretty much the same thing you get more of a accurate date match so your not sieving threw endless No's.

I think people have lost the art of communication whether it be friends or dating people we just don't know how to step away from technology and now we rely on it to find us a life partner I think it is really bad because the internet makes us out to be what were not then when you meet people in real life your expectations are destroyed.
What do you think? 
Are you on a dating side? 
What do you think of it all?

Homelessness At Christmas

Usually at the start of the month I do a silly things called Lady Boner where I pick a celeb who's pretty hot and post a few picks about him/ her but today I wont be doing that today I am going to be posting about something closer to my heart and has also effected me in my life a few times. Homelessness.
 
I am posting about homelessness today. I know what your all thinking do I have to listen to her go on well the answer is no you don't you can leave right now.....
But by leaving it does not solve the problem.
This post is about a person I know I wont tell you his name so we will just call him
 'The Friend'.
I met this friend sometime in October (I know not very long ago) but I new from the start he was homeless just the way he was with things not many people walk around with a huge back pack, it never bothered me for one second that he was homeless, I didn't have to think about being friends with him it just happened naturally, I didn't feel sorry for him, I didn't want to save him just wanted to be friends.
Over time we got talking and spent some time together my friend was great he paid for things I paid for things, he never took advantage of anything he could have got from me, but there where some things I did notice about him he never trusted anyone, no one!
He was paranoid, he always compared himself to his dad, he started for getting people and a few days at a time, he for got me once as well broke my heart!
 
What makes it worse is he will still be homeless for Christmas staying in that wet damp garage on his own because there is no where open for him to go on Christmas day, he usually goes to the Salvation Army in town but there open hours are crazy because there never open! It make's me so angry.
 
Same with the Council and Shelter their useless and other places I don't think there doing enough to help people whether young or old not everyone can help being made homeless my other friend (she's female with kids) had the house sold from under her and now she is staying in a hostel, not everyone can help becoming homeless and specially at Christmas.
I would love to help all of them and give them warm blankets, food and a bed but like everyone else I myself am just getting by working 3 jobs.
If you do find your self homeless this Christmas I have placed a few links at the bottom of the page I don't know if they will help much but I hope they can at least point you in the right direction.
 
 
I hope some where along the line one day homelessness will be a thing of the past but I know that will never happen, so this is a campaign we must fight together get people off the streets rent out that spare room, let a person stay it might just save their life.

Todays Poem: Hurt

HURT
 
I'm so hurt
To think that you lied to me
I'm hurt way down deep in side of me
You said your love was true
And we'd never ever part
Now you want someone new
And it breaks my heart
 
Whoa I'm so hurt
Much more, oh, than you'll ever know
Yes darling, I'm so hurt
Because I still love you so
 
But even thought you hurt me
Like nobody else could ever do
I would never, never hurt you
Never hurt you.

Writers Idea's

Now when it comes to writing for me I am a traditional pen to paper type of girl my boxes and suitcases are full of my writings from stories to songs, poems everything I keep them all in a shoe box and when it gets full I get another pair of shoes just for the box.
 
Since moving this year I haven't had anything exciting to write about some of you would call this 'writers block' but I call it 'Unimaginative life'.
So in the words of Carrie Bradshaw "if I get the right table the writing should come and it better had" at the moment I write hunched over on my bed not so good we have no tables in the flat at all (which I hate) I get a bad back then I get grumpy and cant find the story again its just not good when you have to write, my flat is not the biggest and I have a lot of books and clothes so where short of room
(that's a understatement there is just no room at all).
 
My idea is a very small fold away table and chair so when I move (again) it can come with me so I will have a permanent table and chair and not have to worry about it anymore
(no more bad backs, necks).
 
Do I buy or do I build that is the question?
Also you get a foldable chair as well that's will save a lot of room but still practical.
 
 
 
 
This seems the best idea so far
 
 
I could go very old school and go with this it folds down pretty easy but reminds me of school far too much.
 

Hopes and Dreams

 
Let me explain about this picture, in my local town of Northwich I other than the library I have trouble finding a good decent book shop so I am looking for a building to open one.
I know people are saying books shops are dying out and everything is going online but I don't think so, there's not difference sitting in a book shop with a kindle or a book you are still reading. All you have to do is emerge old with new and that is exactly what I am going to do, its not fool proof but its a start. This is a dream I have always wanted to do, I am not getting any younger so here goes, what's that saying "Bottom's Up"
