    Hi, Jazz, Hi Satan.

    I don't get mad at anybody here, why should I? We're all cool.

    Sorry, but I'm married, have been for a long time, that's not going to change.

    And Satan, I called you Lucy as a nickname to Lucifer, I give out nicknames to folks I like sometimes, just like I call Jazz "Jazzy" at times. No harm intended. Just having a little fun. I don't *ever* want to come off as picking on *anyone*!

    My name gets hijacked from time to time, and sometimes whoever is posting posts some really vile things. That's how you will know it's not me.

    But you two are cool. It's all good!

    I understand, don't blame you,nowadays you have to be extra careful (look who's saying it), people just want to harm feelings and don't care about anything, not even themselves, that's why its hard to be nice and express your feelings the way it should. This is the new way, don't express anything so you don't get hurt, I am separated and have 3 beautiful boys,24,21,19, they are excellent boys and I have trained them to be respectful and well behaved, if you see them you faint.

    Good Job, you sound like a real Father in the way you speak of them being so handsome, I like that in a person. How old are you? I really thought you were 30 something. So sorry to hear about the seperation, sounds like it's hard for you.

    If I tell you my age you will know who I am, @banasy... I understand what Jazzy is saying, she doesn't want to show a person something nice because 90 percent of people are not going to respond to her the same way, or in a decent way, 90 percent of people are false, on intention and in feelings.
