Whisper is a social media app where you sign on, take on an anonymous identity and say anything you want to say. No names, just pseudonyms. And you can ‘whisper’ anything and everything. Sort of like an online diary cloaked in anonymity. And after you are done typing out your words, Whisper will assign a picture that best relates to your words and then, you post.

So, post-breakup, I have been venting a lot there, whispering my darkness on my way to healing. A couple of days ago, I whispered: ‘Some people suck at being people.’

And below is the picture Whisper attached to my words. I saw it and I couldn’t help the bubble of laughter that followed suit.Screenshot_2015-03-06-10-33-16

I can’t with the thirsty hoes at Whisper. I just can’t.

    They detected either your sluttiness or subtly recommended a cure for it.

    The pix is a hint that you are not anonymous to whisper. Be guided.

    Um…ok,Pinky,I know this post is “on a lighter note”, so forgve me for being a bit “deep”: I know it’s not easy to move on from a relationship u had some hope in, but I’m kinda surprised to learn that u had to “vent” over it.I don’t know whether ur ex is the person whom u describe as incapable of being a (proper) person, but if he’s d one u refer to…well,I thought the issues he/u guys had at d time were sort of beyond his/anyone’s control…
