PLAYERS' PRESIDENT.

One of the beauties of globalization is technology as it has brought about the advent of many gadget, tools, and equipments, which have essentially aided man in its day-to-day running. A major technological advancement that has championed our life is telecommunication; as it has eased relationship of all sorts among human, bringing a person that is million of miles away close to us virtually at least if not in flesh. I remember those days where it took almost a week to have our love letters delivered to the beloved; now all it takes is our ability to punch their numbers and just dial to deliver our heartfelt desires to them. In fact, these days with rapid sophisticated mobile tools flooding the market, video calls are now a reality.

The comfort which globalization and by extension through its packages have afforded us as endearing as it might seem, appears to be despicably abused. I am a strong advocate for the use of technology because its advantages are boundless and I have immensely benefited from its use. However, am startled as to how it has become a device to use in perpetrating our lustful desires. Gone are the days when entangling was more sacred and even if we had to flirt, it was with dignity and class with so much finesse. Now philandering is with total impunity and absolutely without any form of civility, which I find rather uncanny. These days, our lascivious predispositions displayed like feathers on an Igbo red cap chief and we flaunt our ability to have a plethora of girls as if they were lands in the banana island.

On my way from Lagos, I sat next to a young man; who I am sure will be in his late twenties. As we left the park, this fine looking young man brought out his phone and I was distracted after some time as he kept pressing the key pads. I had my earpiece plugged to my ears and thankfully, I was able to bring the phone out although my phone has musical shortcut buttons. Therefore, while I pretended to change the song from the menu, I could peek into his screen to see what kept his fingers busy considering the fact that my Ray frames, which I had on, abetted me. While I stealthily carried out the detective job that I had immediately mandated on myself, I realised that he was enthusiastically surfing social networks through his browser.

His keen interest attracted me as I realised he was not on the usual facebook, twitter and skype, which I am familiar with. He was on dating social networks. He was not just on one; he was engrossed surfing between innumerable sites finding preys to feast on and females to conquer. He jeered, smiled and mumbled words to himself as he viewed profiles and established contacts with his targets. I was very fascinated by the ecstatic attention he paid to his obvious perpetual habit. He appeared to me to be a genius in this business as he surfed with such proficiency and enviable deftness.

As I was beginning to feel some empathy to the women folk on how they might have fallen victim for men like this, the pity jettisoned by an immediate reality that women also would be wise enough to identify men like this. After all, they must have same messages streamed to them by the minute by numerous men wanting the same thing. It dawned on me that those who are involved in online dating are not just the client but also players’ president. Each be it male or female are a guru in this terrain they expertly tread. I recall how many of my friends had informed me of online dating being the sensible way to net women in the modern word, I realised that it is now a trait we all carry in our bloodline. I am of the idea that this craze must have evolved because of the joblessness and idleness of many youths who turned to these tools out of boredom caused by universities shut for lectures on intermittent strikes as well as unemployment.

I am not strange to meeting people online as I have been lucky to forge many strong friendships online. However, I never comprehended the limitless forums available through these platforms. As I watched my subject with gusto, I understood more clearly what some of my colleagues and friends meant by bombing girls online – it insinuates persistently flooding them with messages and casting out their net in faith like Peter though to be fisher of women.

My opinion however might differ from what many might have in perspective. I believe that online dating is not any different from real life dating. I agree that it is a platform to meet many more than usual at a time than real life; but it does not mean everyone online is there only for the purpose of exploitation or philandering. Just like real life, there are angels and demons as well. Online platforms are just a medium like schooling, working or having one introduced to someone are. It depends on people to choose whether to honour or abuse their medium and by extension; any flaw reflects the personality of the individual and should not defeat the purpose of setting up such a medium.
