I see so many people on this site and other sites who say they've made friends through the web somehow and I'm just wondering how that is. I've come to the conclusion it must just be me because everyone else seems to be doing it just fine. I dont have any friends in real life and so naturally I spent a lot of time online. I met someone on this site a long time ago I considered a friend. We talked for a long time and were really close, but over time that person just talked to me less and less. Now they never talk to me. It really hurt me because I not only was able to share my AB side with that person, but I did consider them a friend and thought they considered me a friend. It took me a long time to get over that.
More recently I began to correspond with someone through Tumblr. They weren't an AB but we had other similar interests and interacted through Facebook and Tumblr all the time. About two weeks ago I decided to delete my Tumblr account and I said goodbye to my 'friend'. I knew from said previous experience I didn't want to slowly be forgotten by this person; it was just better make a clean break. But she insisted that she wanted to be friends and we would still correspond through e-mail and Facebook. We did for about a week and then she just stopped. No explanation, nothing.
I guess this thread doesn't really have a point, I'm just really hurt and wanted to tell someone. I'm glad that places like ADISC exist to talk to others, but real genuine friendships dont exsist online. Or well, I guess they dont for me.
