How do you feel about sharing secrets with someone you’ve technically never met? Or saying how your life Is to someone that you haven’t even seen face-to-face? What about… Going to the extent of falling in love with that anonymous stranger? For some people, these things seem out of reach but actually, making a friend from the internet is quite thrilling. I know that most people would immediately say, “That’s so dangerous, I’d better not ever do that. “, but actually, it’s not as scary as it may seem. How can I say this confidently?
Just a year ago, I was as scared as a normal person… But right now, after taking chances, I have made a few internet friends myself, and I don’t regret one bit of it, in fact, it’s one of the best risks Vive taken. I wasn’t planning to brag, I just don’t want people to think that I’m doing this without a bit of experience. It’s not even all that dangerous If you Just use your head, don’t give out your address, don’t share personal details Immediately, or don’t give out your last name If you want if you don’t feel comfortable yet, then just don’t do it, it’s simple as that, use our head.
If they pressure you, then stop talking to them, your mind knows where that leads to. Just think. Or better, if you can’t stop yourself from being impulsive, then forget about it, stick to personal friends. The idea of earning a friend through the internet right now may seem distant but having one has its fair share of perks. For one, it feels great to actually say that you have a friend from another country, Just imagine having a friend from Japan or Korea for an instance. You learn the different lifestyle and culture of their country.
Or even pick up a few words and phrases from their language. There might even be some cases where you have homework about their country or so, you can ask them a few questions for a bit of help. Second, If you meet someone older, around 18 and above, you can ask them for advice. Whether it’s because you don’t know what to do about that certain person or because you’re confused which is wrong or right. They can help you out a lot. Or even if you’re feeling down, they can pick you right back up with a look on the brighter side.
Third, if you go through forums, you can easily find people with your same interests and talking to them will never be awkward since you will always have a topic. Befriending people will be easier because you’ll never get awkward atmosphere with your common interests and through that, you will know each other better since one topic leads to another hundred topics, before you know it, it’s like both of you have been friends for a long time. The other reasons vary from what kind of friendship you have with that person… Web It’s because they never let you be lonely, they literally make you laugh-out- loud through the internet, or because there’s something about them that really you can never really see what’s behind that other monitor… But it can always be either good or bad. A kidnapper? A mental patient? What if they’re Just a teenager like you, Just looking for a friend? No one can ever know for sure. So the key in forging something as spontaneous as this is learning when to take the risk. When to make decisions and if that decision is for the best. Take the chance.
