Don't Date Him Girl T-shirt.jpg

If you've tried the online dating thing then you might be aware that it can be a bit like high school. People, especially those without relationships of their own, tend to gossip about everyone else's affairs. Rumors run rampant and rejected rivals often press out sour grapes whining to anyone who will listen.

Intelligent folks trust their own instincts. Unfortunately, those who have loved and lost one too many times sometimes stop relying on their own intuition become bitter and suspicious allowing the comments of others to override their own judgment.

After all, we've all made mistakes or simply made decisions that might have hurt someone else. One usually prefers not to broadcast these unfortunate matters but hopes not to be judged poorly by third parties who do find out. Generally, life is not a court of law and no one has final say on who is right or wrong in most situations.

Normally but according to an AP story (06/30/06) one attorney who claims his name is mud in the dating world thanks to a website where women post complaints about men has decided it's time for the court to decide whether 'what she said' can be called defamation.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Thursday that Todd Hollis' lawsuit claims website www.dontdatehimgirl.com allowed two women from the Pittsburg-area, along with other anonymous users, to post items suggesting that he was unfaithful among other negative accusations.

Hollis filed the claim Thursday in Allegheny County against Tasha Joseph, creator of the site that promises subscribers a "cost-effective weapon in the war on cheating men."

Ms. Joseph states that men have the chance to post rebuttals to any comments made on her website. However, Hollis' suit contends Joseph "conspired with disingenuous people whose only agenda is to attack the character of those individuals who have been identified on the site."

As far as I'm concerned, you can never win in these matters. To quote Lady Gertrude from Shakespeare's Hamlet, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

Whether it be a lady or a gent, an overly offensive defense always makes people question one's credibility. Better to let sleeping bitches lie, dude.
