I’m not alone.
…I’m never alone.
Every person needs to reboot this
They are VerY real
The people I’ve met over the web and are great friends with, hell, even one is my boyfriend, are more fucking real than most of the people I meet on a daily basis in “reality”.
relationships established online are real and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise
I’ve had online friends for more than 20 years now (I started in 1988).
Many of those friends I haven’t met in person yet, many I have. Most friendships that started IRL are continued, supported, and thriving because we can stay connected online in spite of our busy lives.
To say that human interaction is less real because technology is involved is just ignorant.
