Track16: I used to meet people from online all the time. Went to parties, coffee, encounters, you name it. Deedee, I wasn't always just lurking online like I do these days, I lived enough life for 2 lifetimes. I lurk online these days because since quitting the booze, I just don't have any social battery anymore.Same here Track..I don't hold back either.
I keep people at a distance until I really get to know them because of what I learned from the days of partying, encounters, and what not. When you go online, you can put on any face you want, make people believe you are completely different from what you are in rl. I met one too many who done that and lets just say it was awkward as fk. I don't put a face on, if I'm happy, I'm happy, if I'm pissy, I'm pissy. Same in rl.
But it's a matter of weeding out those who have hidden agendas...ask as many questions as you want...
If your life has changed now for the better then I'm really happy for you....you just can't give up on people....yes you will meet right horrible ones but they are there to teach you to see it quicker in others...and ignore them.
Your one of the nicest and quirkiest on here and would be a shame if you've given up building a social circle for yourself..
