Well I just wanted to know if anyone made experiences in the case of chatting to a person over the internet where you had expected a real friendship. Do you think it's even possible to make real friends over for example Facebook for example? Personally I don't think so because I believe that many people on Fb just trying to avoid real deep discussions. I rarely found people there with which I can really relate to my life problems and talk about certain issues who affect me. Mostly it's just shallow discussions who never match any real sense. And if so do you think that an internet affair can replace something you lack of in real life? I just wanted to hear opinions about it in general positive or negative. I called the thread "Virtual emotions" because I recently was chatting with someone I really liked first because of her art I was getting interested and I really thought she would like me too...Normally I don't fall into such things easily anymore because most of the time I ignore social networks like Fb anyway. But anyhow this girl attracted me very much and I couldn't refuse to start chatting with her because I had in mind I could talk really about things that go beneath the surface and perhaps I could so to say build a relationship.. In fact it was a very weird chat I showed her something I was drawing and she was an expert in that kinda stuff but anyhow I realized that she wasn't really interested in me. So I switched over to tell something very personal (which I don't wanna talk about here...) but she just didn't reply after a few posts and seemed just to loose total interest in me. I feel a kind of rejection right now I don't know Iam not really sure. I just expected more to have someone I can talk to about personal issues but I totally gave up on it.
