I screw around online far too much, and I have access at school if I need it. Should I ditch my wifi addiction!?

I think I'm internet lite.
We just have a dial-up that is free through my college. It's slow, but the price is right. At school I use the faster internet if I want.
At home I don't look at many site with big pictures or videos, it just takes too long to load.
I generally only visit about half a dozen websites regularly to browse around (BF being one of them).
We don't have cable TV either. We have a wireless connection (rabbit ears), six channels on a 13in TV is plenty for us. No cell phone either. We did recently get a cordless phone at home. Those are pretty nifty!
I feel like we are living in the paleolithic. Have no plans to upgrade. Life is good.
Do the Foosters minimize time on the Internet? Are you kidding me? :p

Faster internet is fine. But going to the a wifi hotspot like a coffeeshop or the like has more of a social feel. You can hookup with the babes and dudes and not be frequently squirreled away by yourself. The downside is ordering ultra expesive coffee drinks that can add up. :eek:

The few times I've ventured into a coffeeshop (for just a regular small cup of coffee), the only babes and dudes tended to be 20- and 30-somethings. Not exactly "hook-up" heaven for this gal. ;)
I prefer to socialize around bicycles and group rides and TT's. And, of course, Foo. :)

I beg to differ. I think you have something to offer persons from all walks of life. ;)

Are you familiar with the term 'cougar'? Why NOT date younger men? I don't see any reason why you couldn't. You have personality, an interesting life (cycling is pretty darned interesting), and a better body than most college senior.
I wouldn't mind dating an older woman as long as she could understand that I'm in college and a wannabe bike racer with no money. Likely not something that would last long term, but it would be fun and interesting.

Might be fun, if it were not long-term, and I were in a different situation. Long-term, I just feel more comfortable with someone who has had a similar amount and type of life-experience.... At this point, I prefer to "hold out" for that older man, and to stay busy riding, training, making new cycling friends, and essentially rebuilding my life in the interim. ;)
