I’ve noticed how often I receive messages from fans of my work who Begin to address me as their friend because we interact past a few comments or convos through asks.
I really don’t like to come across as icy with this but I’m… Not a reliable person to befriend online. Online friends that I’ve known for years can testify that I’m terrible at keeping in contact. I don’t like to use the computer that much in my day to day life and im afraid that includes social interaction.
Friendships require interaction and with my real life obligations and social life outside of the computer, making more of those kind of social commitments online is asking a lot from me.
I’m not really directing this at anyone specifically… But there are people here who are nice and friendly folks and Id rather you’d know now how flippant I am regarding online relationships of any kind these days then be gone for weeks at a time with you wondering why.
