My best friends tend to be online. Most of my friends are. All of them are. Been that way for a long time. Had real life best friends maybe 3 times so far in life. Lots of work and commitment. Now I’m like a butterfly. I consider everybody that listens to me online and responds my friend because they are, and I give them my everything at every exchange.
But… I avoid IM/VM/Skype/Kik/etc because whenever I’ve done that… THERE’S NO SLEEPING… not that I sleep much…
But I’m an official online citizen. I’m like that neighbor that runs the curiousity shoppe and is mostly harmless. The neighbor that waves as you walk by sometimes and you show them some amazing thing you did, for no particular reason and then off you go.
His house is a large strange looking mansion and rumors fly around about dead bodies in the basement, but you know he’s perfectly harmless, generally or seems to be. and you couldn’t imagine him NOT being SOMEWHERE around, cheering you on from afar but never really interfering.
Or… I’m just a guy behind a keyboard who is killing time on his computer because it’s more interesting than sleep.
“You’re that awesome friend who always has interesting things to say grin emoticon” yay
