Grabbed from a recent thread. Previously, Maoman had also posted how his wife feels like she is an internet widow. I’m sure that other wives and SO’s feel the same.
I googled “internet widow” and didn’t come up with much :s. The only article(s) of interest came from cliterati.co.uk but that’s not what I was looking for.
How do people, men and women, deal with this? Interested in both perspectives. Do guys feel this is a problem? Do women, do you feel like the internet is your guy’s “other woman”?
For me, sometimes, I wonder, are we (those who spend an inordinate amount of time) socially crippled that we spend more time in front of the PC than in front of a talking, breathing individual? Or has the Internet replaced the radio, TV, cable and that this isn’t a sign of anything out of the ordinary? As our lives become busier, time management is a vitally important skill to have. I dont’ think I do such a good job, never seems to be enough time during the day . Wanted to hear from other perspectives.
