Wonderful Cheryl likes to stay in shape by doing yoga, preferably in the nude. She is also a very active girl who likes to camp, hike, and swim. When she has the chance to get away from it all, she likes to go far from modern civilization, modern technology, and modern distractions. She believes the connectivity we experience in our normal lives is counter-productive when it comes to peace of mind.
“Technology is reducing us all to little more than cogs in a machine,” she says. “We all live at the mercy of those devices. They tell us what to do and they run our lives for us. It’s like having this little electronic tether in your pocket or purse all the time. How many people do you know who freak out when they forget their phones? We used to accept that there were times when we just couldn’t reach people. There were times when they were out of the reach of technology. That’s what answering machines were for. You’d call somebody’s house and maybe there would be no answer at all. If they had a machine, you left a message. You lived with the idea that it might be a while before you could get hold of them. We’ve lost that. We no longer believe there should be times when people are beyond our reach. We want to be able to reach out and put ourselves in touch with someone at a moment’s notice, and if they don’t respond right away, we get offended. That’s no way to live.”
“Most of the time you don’t need your phone,” she goes on. “Sure, there are times when you need it to call for a ride, or when there’s an emergency, or to coordinate your plans out with whoever you’re going with in case the two of you split up during the course of your trip. You don’t really need the phone most of the other time. Yet you take it with you. When you go out to a restaurant, or walk through a mall, or even walk by kids on their way to school or waiting for the bus, what are all those people doing? They’re not seeing the world around them. They’re not engaged with life and with living. They have their noses buried in their phones and they see only what’s on their screens. I’ve never seen anything more depressing than a bunch of young, fun, attractive people out at a restaurant or in a club or somewhere else, and instead of talking and laughing and joking with each other, they’ve got their noses buried in their phones and they’re not enjoying their lives. Why would you go out with people and then ignore them?”
Cheryl continues, “The machines are probably triumphing in their bid to take over the world. Before there was an Internet, none of us had any idea what that was going to do to our planet. We all take it for granted now and we act like we can’t live without it, yet for years we did just that. Do we really want to live on a planet full of zombies who are lost in their phones all the time? What’s the next thing going to be? What’s the next level of connectivity going to be like? I have to tell you, I was worried when those glasses things came out that people were going to wear all the time. It seems like that idea didn’t catch on, but what if it does? What if we’re all just walking around all the time totally connected in real time to everyone else through social media and everything else we do? I don’t know if I want to live in that sort of world.”
Cheryl explains that she loves to be able to just spend quiet time getting to know people. She considers herself a people person and genuinely enjoys the process of getting in touch with someone for the first time. This is one of the reasons she likes to go camping and get away from all the connected electronics in the world. “Can’t we all just stop answering our phones every minute?” she asks. “We’ve all got voice mail and text messaging. Can’t we respect one another’s rights just to not be available once in awhile? Except for emergencies, there is no reason we can’t just ignore our phones for those times when we’re actually engaged in our lives and doing something else. When I get out and go camping, I want to spend my time enjoying nature. I don’t want to be looking at the Internet or getting messages. I want to be completely focused on my companion, and I think every man deserves that undivided attention. That’s why men love escorts.”
