Forlorn.of.thee (fa'lo:n ŭv thē), p, my only strength and stay,forlorn of thee, whither shall I betake me, where subsist?

You must remember this,
A kiss is still a kiss, a poke is just a poke,
The fundamental things apply,
As time goes by…

~ Casablanca

A Facebook poke, I’m confused, confounded, baffled and bamboozled. What does it mean?

The official guide “The poke feature can be used for a variety of things on Facebook. For instance, you can poke your friends to say hello.”

That’s it? Hello?

Come on, I mean even the word “poke” generates in my mind some erotic undertone, carnal suggestion, and sexual connotation (maybe I’m a pervert), if it were meant to be “Hello”, why not a “Tap”, “Slap” or “Punch”.

This mob is on the nose when they say Enough with the Poking, Let’s Just Have Sex.

“Seriously. People don't understand why "poking" exists on Facebook. It's pretty clear that it's Facebook's classy way of flirting, none of this "I was just thinking about you" bullshit. You want to have sex, so you poked me. End of story.”

If you have a Facebook account read Here, Otherwise read Here

Love their 10 Commandments of poking… No 4’s a hoot, Straight men don't poke other men. It is never appropriate. End of story.

So, do you poke?


Don't miss next week's forthcoming topic: Why do men ogle at women?

I don't poke. I don't do facebook. Or MySpace. I'm on the mindset that says meet if you can't meet in person or it's a total waste of time. And if you can meet face-to-face, why are you hiding behind a computer ? THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TURN 50. YOUR DESIRE TO POKE CHANGES TO A DESIRE TO HAVE AFTERNOON TEA INSTEAD :)

Aoide: You're a little naive to think otherwise. I have 28 lady friends on Facebook and you're the only one who ever poked me (definitely no pokes from guys, ever!). I don't think it's because I have bad breath or BO.

Very seldom do you meet some guys who are not trying to get into your pants. There are exceptions, but these are far and few in between. Pokes from family (different kinda of intimacy).

Annie: May I join you? Darjeeling or Earl Grey? :)

No - poking is one I avoid! It just doesn't sound... right. SO I agree with you and if that makes me a prude, sorry but I'll be a prude. I'd rather email or message and say "Hi".

Here by that darned black box...

G'day Crazycath, just the word "poke" sends shivers up my spine brrrr :)

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]legal buy viagra online[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
