unfortunately I'd have to say that it's a sad fact of life in this day and age. But hey, it works for some people. We'll know how much of an impact on evolution this has when we see future dependants from these couples being born with deformed thumbs - that is when the situation will be saddest!

Its more stealthy texting someone. But people do have 'Relationships' without actually meeting the person, using IM, video calls and texting.

Hmmm....  Not too well up on politics are we then Pebbles?

Have a look at those who like to wear RED at every opportunity, including their families, then you'll get the idea Tongue out
