A friend or two have such positive experiences on facebook. I don't. I mean, I glean a few interesting things. I learn about books here and there. But overall its a frustrating bummer. And I don't see any way to fix it. I often chose friends based on whether they have ideas or love in some form. But apparently there is no accompanying discretion on my part necessitating they are capable of calm online discourse.
I used to have discussions where one's heart would quicken, but everyone remained humane. And I don't know whether personal stressors or just an inherent suckiness to facebook changes that. Sigh. Or maybe its me. But I get upset whether or not I respond, post, or anything else.
I'd like having friends closer, but online society is more what is available to me at this point. What it does is make me long for my family and communes have never looked so attractive.
I miss the interactions and friendships I used to have. It's hard to tell these days who is really a friend and who is not. :(
