One thing about me I want to get out there is that I’m a major sap. Like, if you started interacting with me, I’m sure you noticed I followed you back pretty darn fast because I went “POTENTIAL FRIEND”.
Whether we wind up just kind of reblogging things from each other, pass pleasantries every once in awhile, or actually wind up chatting IRT fairly frequently I start recognizing and knowing the names/avatars of people.
Fandom is usually what causes me to meet a person, but if I chat with someone on the regular, that sort of becomes irrelevant as I get attached to the individual.
Basically… I like to know if a relationship is based more on mutual interests that could easily poof in an instant if those change or if we have a deep connection where we’ll be pals even if we wind up getting into things the other has zero interest in.
It still kind of hurts thinking about those “friendships” I had only because a person wanted something out of me like learning to use proxies and where to buy things. Another time it was because of the ideas I had and they quickly discarded me once they were over that fandom, despite the fact we had talked nearly every single day for over a year.
I AM SENSITIVE AND LATCH ONTO PEOPLE. ><
