More thoughts on what I'm going to do. I realised yesterday when walking my dog that I very much love meeting new people. Some people stop us because my dog is so beautiful! They want to stroke him and ask me about him. If I didnt have the dog with me they would just walk by. Its because we had a commonality that we stop and chat - we like dogs!! We all have a commonality on the internet, on journals or in pogo games. We all choose to be there and we all want to make new friends.
Its different on the internet because we can ask questions - know each others names - talk to each other again because we add each other to our address book or buddy list. It's like collecting people!! When your out walking your dog - you cant say to that person can I add you to my friends list incase you see them again!! You can do that on the internet and thats why I like it so much!
Maybe Im just nosey - I dont know but I find meeting other people very fascinating and on the internet you can find out so much about one person. In our journals we open ourselves to anyone or anyone we choose in our private journals. But, because we dont have to face anyone we dont feel frightened about opening up and saying what we want - we can let everything off our chest. The one thing we miss on the internet is the physical contact and the facial expressions. In the real world I think we might be choosy and sometimes prejudice - most people would walk past a person because of their appearance - either feeling too proud or too small to talk to them. On the internet you cant see the person - you dont know who you are talking to - there are no prejudices. Or may be there are but in different ways. I dont know - what do you think? These are just my views.
