    Hello aspiring comedians/writers/cultural critics, all permutations of, and everything in between. It's me: Sweat Daddy, the new guy here on The Dawg Shed. I'm not going to tell you much about myself, I'll just let my posts do the talking.

    I used to post a little on a pro wrestling forum 5 years ago, and was a bit of a regular on the IGN Basketball boards for a few months. I skim through a few other forums as well from time to time, ENTP (the Briggs Meyers personality type that fancies themselves quite special), Baseball Mogul, and others.

    Mainly, I like to read about peoples life experiences, as opposed to their must fit in one catchy line opinions. But I don't mind opinionated people. I contradict myself like that guys, ha ha.

    So, for starters, I thought I'd throw a scenario out there and see what you guys make of it (I say guys assuming there can't be too many women who post here, although maybe that's an unfair assumption, I guess we'll see):

    I've lived with a good friend for the last 2 years. We're college aged. For the first year that I lived with this friend, guy didn't get laid, not even once. I didn't fare much better. I noticed he would spend hours and hours on Facebook.com. Seems he'd struck up a friendship with a girl we went to high school, albeit after high school. They'd only hung out in person a few times. I was there one of those times. My buddy got really sloppy drunk and didn't put a move on her, she seemed pretty into him though. I guess they started talking a lot on Facebook though, to the tune of a few hours a night. Flash forward about six months. My buddy meets this girl through a boxing team at college they were both on. Bangs her after a wild night at a frat party, starts dating her. She's over a lot, basically moves into our house after a few months. She was friendly, but the situation gradually became annoying in that she basically lives with us now. Now, a year later, they're still dating. But he still talks to the Facebook girl for hours at a time. He told me that he loves her. He told me that his girlfriend seems very happy with their arrangement, and that he feels that by telling her of the situation with the other girl he'd be acting selfishly by robbing her of what they have. He seems to be all at once, bored with her, comforted by her (gotta repeat, he'd been through a year long cold streak before her and she's only the 2nd girl he's ever been with), and guilt ridden by her. Now, he's a pretty conservative guy. Until a few years ago, he believed divorce should be illegal. A few months before he met his girlfriend, another friend of ours cheated on his girlfriend. My friend told him he needed to confess, be honest. I took the Johnny Drama from Entourage view, "deny deny deny." This is why I'm puzzled that my friend won't be honest with his girlfriend. To wrap up, the last few weeks he's just gone off the deep end: denies that he's doing his cheating. Now, I've never told him what he should do or anything like that. But, I'm reasonably sure I'm the only person who knows that he loves the Facebook girl, and lately he's been giving me the cold shoulder/polite silent treatment. I view at as a sort of shoot the messenger thing, a little different though in that I'm not giving him a message (telling him what to do), but he knows that I know. Often, it's surreal being in the room with them as a couple, knowing that I know more about their relationship than she does. My friend is the type of guy who likes to think he does things rationally, so I have to imagine he knows he's got to either tell her or break up with her or something. He's in a bit of a George Costanza situation now, living a lie.

    So, what do you guys think? Follow up questions/opinions/life experiences welcome, I'm curious....

    It's just surreal, love in the digital age ha ha.

    Nobody can write a sincere reply to a human situation, or even say hello back? Alright, cool.
