It’s day two and I’m still feeling highly motivated about keeping up with the daily blog.
Today I wanted to talk about online friendships. For me personally, having friends online has been ongoing for almost a decade now. Being introverted in my personal life, it’s not so easy for me to connect with others very often. Online however, I find it much easier.
I’m a gamer and have found a lot of my online friends via various games I have played. With some individuals I have gained real life friendships with and even romantic relationships.
Recently via Twitter, I have become good friends with a few individuals who I enjoy having real conversations with and not just random chit chat. For some reason I have an easier time trusting some of the friends in my phone over people I’ve known in real life for a very long time.
There have been a few mishaps with getting to know some bad apples, but overall my online friendship experience has been a very good one. I’ve met people from all walks of life and have learnt things I would never even have thought of.
If you’re not sure about making friends online, just remember it is you who is in charge of how much of yourself you give away to another.
I’ve met some wonderful people that I would otherwise have never known exist. It doesn’t hurt just to say hello and you never know, you might end up making a life long friend.
