Hi Folks,

I spoke to a scandinavian friend of mine the other day. She told me that she
(and all her other female HC buddies) pretty regularly get contacted by (mostly
"older")men trying to woo them some way or another, mostly adding them to their
MSN list, calling them "my little blond angel" etc... I mean OK, HC should be
used to make contact with other people, and if it leads to more than just
"hospitality", fair play. But using it just with the intentention to get laid by
a blonde seems pretty sad, and in my eyes represents a grave violation of the
very essence of what HC is all about. 

Have you had similar experiences? What do you think about it? 

Cheerio.

Freddie

I agree with uaflyer with a lot of things he said.

My opinion is that finding a date shouldn't be the purpose of using or joining
HC but in the end, all the parties and camps are social situations where young
people have contact with each other, and where young people have contact with
each other, there is going to be kissing and sex, relationships and one night
stands. As long as nobody is being forced it's ok by me. 

I feel like I've said that already before.

Nobody who does not want to be abused, WONT BE. It's silly. 
on the other side of the water, its pretty common girls looking for accomodation
with males and the other way round is also positive.
the thing is: eyes starting on other eyes......we know the this will end which
is normal. HUMAN BEINGS

@Rightsaid Fred and everyone,

So taking a leaf out of uaflyer's piece, are we going to re-write the
socializing bible ? Hey, stuff happens and lets agree we're not MORAL POLICE.
Who wrote the code of morality anyway? Or bad behaviour? I believe most of us
are mature adults who know the consequences of their actions. However, having
grown older doesn't necessarily mean having grown up.

I started laughing when I read uaflyer's No kissing at camp line. Where's camp
btw? Kabul?

(((((Frank))))))) Did I read you right??? har har har. Hey, the party's in the
rock capital of the world!! wow.

Frank again, I got an email from a hc member who's now in Srinagar. She's having
a bit of a hiccup getting accustomed (?) to the new surroundings. Understandable
if its only new terrain. But lets bear in mind Srinagar was traveller/tourist
free for like 10 years or so because of security reasons. This year its a lot
better. 

My point is, it would be worth a thought. You're near the himalayas and there
are trips to take to some awesome places! The highest golf course in the world
(even if u dont play golf) and glaciers and beautiful forests. Most interesting
will be to stay in a house-boat on the lake. Its an experience you have only in
Kashmir.

September has a lot of fresh fruit and nuts. You can walk in apple orchards and
eat fresh apples till you cant eat anymore.

around !   U guys made laugh my a$$ off   !!!

Well 'it's happen to me few times  but only by.................gay guys..:( :( 
:(  :(. Even as a man I don't give easily my msn. Some of theirs messages have
been removed by HC moderator. I supposed  some members complained about the guy
as he was really insisting.
I don't care about people if they are gay or not.I can accept any guest, hetero
or homo..no problem until they don't try anything.

If u get messages on MSN and u feel they abuse u, u can block the person.
Consider it like being looked at on the street. U cant avoid, but it doesnt mean
anything, u dont have to have any conversation with the person. I left my MSN
availability on my profile, coz sometimes this is the way i meet the most
interesting persons. As for abusement, it happened a few times that i blocked
the person ringing me all day and asking for webcam chat without speaking
english, or sendind me some porn icons. I dont report them, they are harmless
sick guys.
