idk i feel like you dont really make friends the same way as you do in high school or w/ever. you arent going to get that same level of depth because you dont have as much of yourself to give to a friend anymore, yknow? >
so instead you make acquaintances at work or on the block (or at synagogue or community things) and hope that eventually youll click with someone enough to call them a friend. its a much more gradual process, i think, and not always very rewarding.
Why is it so different online though? Like why can’t I meet people like you (or anyone I follow really) in my area? I feel like I’m still giving myself in these friendships but I just don’t know how to initiated it on a local level.
I just have no idea where to start. I feel like I’ve done so much between my fellowship, my volunteer and charity work, my job, and school but I can’t make friends or maintain any of these relationships on a real and lasting level. Not the way I can online. I met nudiemuse online in 1997 and we see each other usually once a year and we talk every single day. Why is it so hard to find that IRL?
Like I can’t even tell you what terrible people my local friends are. I just always want to go to the movies because then I know I will have at least 88 minutes of them shutting the hell up.

i find them on the internet tbh. rl friends? what are those?
I’m getting to that point but then I get concerned because I spend all my free time online talking to people. Like I worry that isn’t healthy. Like I need real human interaction?
