I believe you’ll remember Mike, the man who showed us how not to get a second date last week. While we’re still not sure if Mike is a douchebag or a man struggling with some very real issues, we present you with yet another one of his lengthy emails making its way around the interweb. This one comes via Danielle, a woman who claims to have been corresponding with Mike about a Craigslist rental back in 2006. This time, it’s the friendship end of the human interaction spectrum he’s after. Real? Copycat? Or maybe Mike never existed in the first place? Thoughts?

Ya know, like when our economy went to hell and big banks claimed to have no idea that the housing market was about to collapse.

Crazy Emails From A Girlfriend Gone Mad

I think most of us at some point in our lives have sent an email or text in the heat of an angry moment that we later regretted. In the summer of 2007, a girl named Em didn’t have an angry moment, she had an angry two weeks, during which time she sent a slew of bitter emails to the boyfriend that she thought was avoiding her. By the time she learned he wasn’t really ignoring her, but was actually traveling through Europe — something he’d mentioned many times to her before he left — it was too late. The emails had been sent, the damage had been done, and now this little video of her big mistake has been put together so we can all feel so much better about any communication snafus we’ve made in the past. The transcript is here for the impatient among us. The only thing that would make this funnier is if the two got married, and then divorced, and the guy sent this email to her.

Yet, of the 2,558 people surveyed, 62 percent had never sent a love letter, while 69 percent had sent an “I love you” text. Is technology killing romance?

Texting Can Lead To Embarrassment Or Jail Time

Texting is a definite advantage in communication. You can tell people exactly what you want to say without actually speaking to them. You can send random photos to friends to make them laugh.

Emails From Mom

I just found this cute new blog that features touching, adorable, mom-written emails sent in by readers.
