When We Can Only Relate to One Another Online But Not Face-to-Face…

The DOWNSIDE of ALL of those social networking sites…unfortunately, this, is what we’re currently looking at!

When we can only relate to one another online but not face-to-face, why IS that?  We had so much to chit chat about when we were “connected” online, so, how come, there’s this deafening silence between us, now that we’d met up?  When we can only relate to one another online, but not face-to-face, perhaps, it’s because we’re interacting, through the medium of a screen, that we feel safer, less exposed, compared to when we sit face-to-face, at that café, for that uneasy AND awkward blind first date.

When we can only relate to one another online, but not face-to-face, and, this, is all due to this overgrowth of reliance on the internet, to connect people of the world, and, just like that statement: the MORE friends you have on FB, the LESS friends you have for real still rings true!

When we can only relate to one another online, but not face-to-face, well, maybe, those married couples out there can “ding-dong” one another, for cups of coffee, instead of turning their heads to say, “hey, you mind getting me a cup of coffee?”
