I can't be anything but real, sometimes it gets me in trouble.

And by the way, it's not Friday.

Throwing out a Friday topic.....


Why is it that it seems everyone these days is always someone else? It seems that there is an underlying motive or personality that always rears in the times when doors are finally being opened.

Are the days of the handshake deal really gone? If not, where are these people that mean what they say and say what they mean?

Trust, to humanities detriment, has become a multifaceted term that at one time meant something. Something that was attached to a length of time. These days, it's 'trust while convenient'. Don't hand out something whole, unless you are ready to get it back in jagged pieces, tied to mendacious reasoning.

"Let's make a deal", "I'll pay you back", "I mean what I say"


Why is this getting so bad?
 Quoting: Gradient


My goodness, the way you wrote the last part, you could mean two different things.

I know people who make deals with a hand shake, a real hand shake. There are honest people still, they are few and far between. Though that is where I live, could be more else where.

Re: Is anyone real anymore?
I lost over 75k on a handshake deal. That was the last time I trusted anyone in business dealings I should say....

But it was by the shaking of the hand, looking in the eyes and meaning what we say. I delivered and when it came time for the payday.....well you know the rest of the story...
 Quoting: Mukk1234




That would be the business side of what I am talking about. I had a deal like that with a 'friend'. It was only a grand, but I never saw any of it. He avoids me like the plague now. Funny that.
 Quoting: Gradient


That isn't new. That has been happening since we started. BUT...there is a new and different feeling lately....Too many of us?
 Quoting: Brainsdonthurtabit


Yeah, it has always happened, but it seems to be a more common issue in 'real' people than in the past.

Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Well I think we really really need to get back to basic old-fashioned values, as they are the foundation of a decent society (which we seem to have lost).

I suggest we just take away all the bureaucrats' computers and make them deal face to face with real people and real information in the real world. For starters that would sure change a lot. Unfortunately it will probably never happen, lol.

You must have had a bad deal today huh? I think with globalization and long distance deals comes less need to be good to neighbor because you simply do not need to rely on your neighbor anymore.

I think what you are really seeing is sort-of a breakdown of community.

Get of the flouride, aspertame, TV/video game, cellphone just for starters. Then maybe you will have a better chance to meet somebody "real" who will be trying doing just the same.

Not today but recently. It just kind of capped off what I was noticing as a trend.

The community breakdown could contribute to this I suppose since it would eventually permeate every aspect from business to personal. Even if it were passive.

Negative energy is lashing out the more it begins to see it's days are numbered as the dominating force on Earth. The funny thing is, you think it could get worse and everyone would just be totally evil all the time.

But the truth is, Duplicity makes the Evil even darker. This *IS* the worst.

Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Those who are real are abandoned for they do not fit into mainstream.

We were given the tools to love, be at peace and to help everything succeed in our environment - in short, we were encharged to play a greater role than we currently find ourselves in a position to do so.

As a result, we become fake and guided not by our inner abilities but by that which is superficial and externalised through the influence of that around us.

Given the current state of things,

What do you expect?

How are you defining 'real'?

I believe its very human to have dimension to your character. I think in terms of personality and behavior, context comes into play.

Context definitely plays a part. The problem comes when the context is lain out before you and then is nothing like what it was in the beginning.

Say if someone falls in love with a person for a certain behavior they presented during a certain situation, they may be disillusioned to find out that their love interest has other sides that appear to shatter all prior belief and inspiration.

Agreed, what is real for me is not the same angle you have, and in addition to the afore mentioned points, we need to look within and introspect before we can operate with integrity on the outside.

At the moment, we aren't doing this, hence the need for someone/anyone to recognise the dilema we face as is the case of the Friday "Feeling" OP!

Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Wow, haven't seen you post in a quite a while. Good to see you again Gradient. There are a few "real" people left, but most today are hypnotized by popularism and entertainment.

Why is this? Our culture has degraded from one of honour and honesty to one of depravity and self absorbtion. People use to have principles and stood up for them. Now situtation ethics and immorality on all fronts rules the day as gutless weasels lie cheat and steal for what they want without regard to others. People use to be responsible for themselves and looked out for their family, neighbors and even people they didn't know. Now, not only will no one stop to help a lady with a flat tire, they won't even get out of the car to fix their own. Out comes the cell phone and it's someone elses responsibility, not thiers.

People use to trust in God and were thankful for His blessings. Now people have shoved God off into a distant memory of grandparents. They blame God for anything that doesn't go the way they want and take credit for anything that does.

It's going to get worse before it gets better. Pride comes before a fall and we in that process now.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787
