It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Cyrillic anybody?

Lately, an average of two Russians a week are friending me out of nowhere, and when I don't friend them back because I can't read Cyrillic, they defriend me about seven or eight days later.

Who are these people and why are they friending me???

Borderline symptom of the day: curiouscurious

wish I knew. They do the same to me. did you see M-As post in Cyrillic? It was a hoot!

Ditto here.

Someone elsewhere on LJ speculated that the could be bot-type things (sorry, can't remember who, or when - this started happening a couple-three weeks ago).

I've been told by a couple of technogeeks that they are bots. I just don't get what the bots gain by friending people on LJ.

The way I hear it, Russians are LJ's biggest customers; in fact, LJ has been sold to a Russian company, apparently.

A lot of Lj communities are now Russian, predominantly; the retro_futurism channel I'm on is primarily Russian. So that explains the Russian angle.

Where they're coming from, however...that I could'nae tell ye. Sorry.

It happens to me, too -- been happening to me irregularly for maybe two years, I think.

I thought I was the only one!!! I was gonna post about it tonight, actually.

*shrug* I mostly ignore it when it happens (from Russian and English writers alike), but in case it bothers you...
