When is it time to step away?

I have done this AdultFriendFinder thing for quite awhile now. I have met a few people that I had rather not have and met some that I would not trade for the world. My time in the chat room (EHT) is MY time. I can sit at the computer and laugh, joke, air all my dirty laundry and feel just as important sitting alone as with anyone next to me. My "friends" from the tub have made alot of my bad days good and they have raised my spirits in times of depression. I treasure them with everything I have. BUT, when do you know it is time to step away? I want to keep my friends, I want to talk to them and I want to continue correspondence, but, if I was to walk away from all this, will they assume I walked away from them? I am at a point of not being sure which way to go. Oh well, maybe I will hang in there a bit longer..who knows...maybe I will meet even more friends to brighten up my day!

Free, like I said, we all get like that. I feel like that most days at the moment due to various reasons. Let's chat sometime.

Wanakiss, I think I will "tough this" out some more. I appreciate your response but as I said above...I would miss it too much to give it up!

Real life does get in the way...but your blogging and your friends in the Hot Tub can be a part of that life, just not all of it.

Balance and perspective...but hey you know that already, dear Free.

Free .. There are times when we feel down and need a break from it all. I know, I've been there myself. At the time I only had family and 1 friend I could turn too. I wasn't on the internet at the time so there was no AdultFriendFinder for me.

What I'm trying to say is, if you need a break, take it. we will understand. You have the email addresses of the ppl you want to be friends with, so let them know that you want to stay in touch.

As you know, some of us are very good listners. So talk to us, we are here for you if you need us.

Take care Free. xx

Frree , ppl come and ppl go, especially on sites like this, some come back , some under another handle, some never do.

You have the e-mail addes of your real friends, and you can add a few more, of those you don't have yet.

Real issues in real life have to be dealt with, and at the moment , you have enough to deal with.

Like you said, the time in EHT, and blogging is YOUR time, time to escape from reality for a while, to relax and have fun.

In your blogs you have probably told us , more about yourself, and your problems, than you would have told, your neighbours and other friends, it have been an outlet, an escape valve, a valuable way of letting off steam , and reducing the pressure.

Deal with the real issues , let us know from time to time how you are doing ,

love and kisses
and God Bless

I don't even have my own blog and i feel very similar to you in that regardes. I've made some friends here and enjoy chatting w/them on their blogs and through i.m.ing etc.

I keep telling myself i've got to stop spending so much time on here or maybe even stop altogether...but what about my blog buddies? Would they wonder where i went? Why i'd left? Would they miss me as much as i would miss them?

Hope your daughters court date goes well...i spent a night in jail; the morning being transported back to my town (i'd gone up to see my family but of course didn't make it halfway); till the mid afternoon in getting bailed out of the county courthouse; 6 months Probation; and about 10 times the amount, in Probation fees and fines, of a stupid bad check i didn't take care of (they bumped it up to Theft by check because i hadn't taken care of it before i'd gotten pulled over for a damn bum break light). Taking care of things and/or making sure they're taken care of properly is deffinately on my list of things to keep abreast of.

Sorry, to hear about your mom and sister, hope things go well for them.
