It was hard to believe when I read this email subject line last week – way for a single line to take me a decade back in time…
As much as I miss my teens, I can’t say I miss the early days of online GiB dating.
As some of you may remember, to meet fellow GiBs online in the 90’s, we had to log in through the crappy mIRC application to the shady #GayLebanon channel on creepy 192.168.0.1-type Undernet servers – or was it Dalnet?
As far as I'm concerned it still feels like the same hit-or-miss shooting in the dark, the same fear of fakes, the same hate of flakes, in that everlasting gloomy atmosphere… So come to think of it, it wasn’t that bad in the 90’s!
