Today's lesson: Having friends

Being on line, I have friends that I have never met. Like, take for example, my friend Graham. I met Graham via a web board almost 4 years ago. He lives in Canada, on the west coast none the less. Now while I have never met him in real life and I have spoken to him on the phone several times, I'd trust him with my life. I know, that's a bold statement.

But conversely, I have a friend that we'll just call Donna. Donna and I were both part of a group of friends before my accident. Nothing really happened between us back then, but then one day things kinda changed. I bought a web cam, because I was tired of telling people I was OK, and decided to show them I was OK. Well needless to say, one thing led to another one day and I was naked in front of Donna.

This went on for months.

She wouldn't call me or give me her cell number though. She was saying that she didn't want me to get attached. But then after we stopped the nudity, she still never gave me her cell number, nor would she even meet me for dinner or a drink!! We talked, consoled one another, bullshitted, gave advice, all via instant messenger. But every time I would try to meet up with her, I'd get shot down. So yesterday, after mentioning meeting up again, and getting shot down again, I asked her what's the sense of being friends with someone in a box? I mean yeah, if I could, I would have no problem whatsoever meeting up with Graham, or any one of my on line friends whom I have gotten to know. For a beer or just to bullshit.

Donna lives in the Bronx, and I live on Long Island. But she might as well have lived in freakin Wisconsin!! I offered to drive to her, I offered to pay for dinner. We were just friends, and we both wanted to stay that way!! So there really weren't no ulterior motives there.

Sorry about the lack of good grammar towards the end there, I'm kinda tired and just basically pissed off.

But Gir makes it all better.

sometimes we can be worlds apart when we're just separated by a wall....

the Internet brings peepz close but keeps'em apart too ....

I started using the internet when i was 14. Back then in my town hardly anyone heard of internet. Nevertheless, i was a regular on MIRC, the internet relaychat and i have known some of these friends for 10 years now. Some of them there on the same chatrooms eventually met up / arranged to meet up and they did and even dated and .... got Married!

Last year i tried to contact some of them just to realised that their lives have changed tremendously from where i left them. I mean i have moved out of that little town and got busy with my own life.

I can relate to your sentiment , piss off yes. I met this guy sometime ago and we would chat on webcam and even stripped for each another . The bond and chemistry are obviously there. But he did the similar thing, no real name, no phone number.. no personal stuff. Best part is we are just 10 minutes drive away!!

I eventually came to terms with myself that he only wants me in his "alternative lifestyle" alternative world. Not in the "real world" . Chances are, he already have someone and he DOES NOT want this friendship.

But that's just the thing, I knew her in real life. I used to hang out with her constantly when she was in college, she went to Adelphi, which, I will agree, is a lot closer than the Bronx.

Damn it. I was going to say, how do you know Donna isn't really a man. But the fact you knew her in real life blows that theory.

Yeah, well I didn't see her vag so that is still a possibility.

It's very possible that Donna doesn't think a relationship would go anywhere, and she doesn't want to ruin your online friendship. Been there myself. I talked with a guy for 2 1/2 years online before meeting him. It ruined the friendship. We still talk occassionally, but he doesn't have my current phone # (which was intentional, he called at the WORST times - 3 am, during work meetings, every 5 minutes for 2 hours in a row), but it's nowhere near the same level that we once were. To some people it's a comfort level thing.

I can't believe someone else knows Gir!!!
