Do you have lots of friends/acquaintances?
I was on another forum (travel related) and there is a section where people chat about anything and everything much like it is here.
Anyway, this one person wrote a very sad thread about being friendless. She said that most of the people she knows these days are online! She has never met these people but have spoken to a few on the phone. I thought it very sad because I have lots of 'real' friends and of course family, so I don't depend heavily for 'friendship' online.
My main reason for being on GW is to help with my remodelling and considering we'll be moving to the bathrooms next and then the rest of house, I will be around for awhile. Nevertheless, as friendly or kindly as some have been here, I still need to communicate with my 'real' friends in person.
So do you depend heavily for support and friendship online? Do you have friends in your neighbourhood/city/state? I guess online 'friendships' are better than nothing, but how sad for some to be so dependent on friendships in cyberworld. Is this a trend? Maybe online communication is stopping some from reaching out to those around them?
I think it is sad though, but that's just me.
