    I have something meaningful I want to say, but I don't really know how. So a hug will have to do.

    I guess it doesn't matter if he was joking. nothing's going to happen.

    I also ask for feedback here, because it's something i'd never ever do in real life. especially not on this.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

It is a telling fact that despite the proliferation of technology that grants us opportunities to cultivate online relationships with other people, our social capital is plummeting precipitously. Robert Putnam covered quite a bit of that in Bowling Alone and he was mostly right, online communities are at best distracting us from opportunities to create rewarding professional and interpersonal relationships in a face to face setting. It creates an illusion that exacerbates the plight of the alienated youth.
    I liked Bowling Alone. I think online communities can provide valuable interpersonal connections though. It can also be a problem if people spend too much time on them because it can have exactly the impact that you describe.

    I think you should be perturbed by the fact that you can't bring these issues to the people you know in "real life". On that account, you should seriously start questioning if they are your friends. And if you discover that they're not, it's time to look for greener pastures elsewhere, but coming to forums like these will get you nowhere.

    Have you tried meetup.com? There are all sorts of groups that hold face to face meetings and chances are, you'll be able to find people who share many of your interests.

    Yeah, I liked that book as well.

    Valuable insight for the socially disconnected.

    I never claimed any of these people were my real friends, I mean the ones i see every day. The only person I'd consider an actual friend i just spoke to after losing contact with her for 8 months so yeah first conversation, I'm not going to bring this up. I probably will in the future, but now isn't the time. It takes years for me to trust someone enough in real life. you people can't do anything and if you judge me i don't have to deal with you. But if i have to see the person all the time that's different
