I miss the sh====t too. Sad to say about a man I might add. He has helped me alot over my tour on fiance and have wondered about him too. Maybe he is happily married, maybe, maybe, maybe. I hope we get something soon. I can speculate 1000's of bad events. Just hope it is a good reason.Tim H. MIA
OK, here goes a wild speculation sure to make TimH come out of his hideout, lol...
"....during his last trip to russia he found out his sweetheart is actually more interested in women than men, so in order to ensure a sexually satisfying and happy life together he is currently in an undisclosed scandinavian sex clinic preparing for his final stage of his upcoming sex change operation...."
If anyone else has a wilder, lol....by all means, go for it..:)
Tim was recently spotted at a "Tony Blair" fund raising event for his re-election. Spotters observed him continually yelling "Tony Blair has made me proud to be an English citizen!" and "What's good for Tony Blair is good for England!"
How is it going - you must give us a progress report.
I've been here long enough (about a year and a half) to know that there is a definite pattern to the communications we receive from fellow forum members.
First comes the "newby" stage which is self explanatory. (But I'll explain anyway. It's Golly guys...I'm new here can anybody tell me what a Russian woman is and where they are? You get the picture.)
Next comes the "Kid in a Candy Shop" phase. ("I wrote to the girls and a lot of them wrote back and they ALL seem to like me and I've never experienced that before and I can barely believe it!!!")
Then - for many of us - comes the "I'm Going There" phase. This is where practical questions are asked and many of our friends hereat the forum give moral support leading right up to departure. (Its one of the best things about this forum.)
Then comes the "Now What" phase. (Which, unfortunately, is the one I seem to have gotten my britches caught on.) The phase occurs as we try to start the Fiance Visa process or we decide we haven't quite gotten the right girl or something like that. (Again, fortunately, few others seem as troubled by this phase as I am. Some, like Tim and Trav seem to go past it fairly quickly.)
Then comes the "Setteld In" (or so I've observed) where we have found what we are looking for and we make brief if any vists back to the forum. The guys on the forum really ARE friends - or as close to them as one can make with exclusive internet contact. And we really do share something unique.
Out friend Tim is in the last phase it appears. While it is a good thing for him - it is no such a good thing for us as we miss the benefit of his comments.
In the time I've been here I've seen quite a few follow this same path.
And then there are the members of the gallery out there like Thunder and Toad - they don't neccessarily go through all these phases - but they are always there making welcome comments. Good friends too.
