Is that really possible? What’s the difference between me conversing with people online or actually going out to see people? I guess you miss out on the physicality of everything, but really? I think it’s close to the same. Yeah I prefer being out with others and not confined to my house, but when I am inside, I like the fact that I can still talk to people. Also, I can talk to people that I wouldn’t normally talk to, either they’re too far, or I’ve never met them, yet I will have long conversations with people I’ve never met face-to-face.
Yes, I do believe that there’s an issue with the whole online thing. There are people that lose touch with reality, but for me it isn’t like that. Online-ness just makes me crave seeing the world more and more and I find places and people that I want to see or visit. I get that if you have more online friends than “real” friends, that’s not a good start, but who’s to say that your online friends can’t become real? Technically they are just at the end of a plane ride, you just have to get there.
That’s my plan, to get to places that I’ve never seen before. I want to see the world eventually, before I settle down. Although I seriously don’t see myself “settling” anytime soon. *(I’m not sure if my brain understands what settling is…)
So yeah, I’m addicted to online-ness, but only cause it let’s me see what I haven’t yet…
