I think the point we’ve reached is about at the limits of my psychological education too.
I’ve had a couple of people through who thought I was over that line. They could give two dozen reasons why they thought so. Yet, they’re wrong and I’m not. Not much grosses me out: I’m very liberal minded. I seek out a variety of friendships on the Internet and I see people online as equals to me and me to them.
I’m not like normal people my age either. I wasn’t normal at your age, I’m not normal now. I have my own normal. Normal for me. I like myself. I like other people. My purpose for being online is to make a variety of friendships with people all over the place because I enjoy bouncing ideas off of people.
But I don’t like private chat. I like staying in public online. Public is more fun. Private is like, I dunno too deep or something.
My least favorite thing is “clingers”. People who cling. They want me to be their TRUE FRIEND. I don’t want that. I like light and simple friendships.
