The Truth About My Blogging.

The truth about blogging is that it's not really good for me, if I'm blogging, I'm not connecting with people in the real world. Part of the reason I had stopped blogging before was due to moving out into the country but also it was due to being in a relationship and the circle of friends that relationship gave me. I am not saying blogging is the problem, it's the symptom of a poor social life on my part. I don't think this is the same for everyone, I have noticed that many of you blog and have a full life, I guess it's a quark of mine. I disconnect, get lonely, then try to connect on line, typical for me to take an easy way out on making friends. Friends in the real world take effort, and sometimes it's easier to let those relationships slide. ............................................Sooner or later I need to connect with real people. No man is an island, or so they say, I am also introverted so that can be a problem, not so introverted that I can't meet people but introverts often don't need as much connection as the general population do. Suddenly we can find ourselves disconnected, people may mistake us as unfriendly or cold but as is my case. I love people, however I can feel overwhelmed and I need downtime to recharge. ...................................... One big mistake that I need to not make again was that I lost custody of my new gay friends to my ex, they were his friends before he met me so it was less awkward to just cut ties. All my friends now are straight or lesbians, so there is a part of me that feels empty. I am trying to get myself back out there but.... well notice I'm blogging again tonight, lol.

Hey Hello!!! This is a message from a not straight nor lesbian friend of yours. Where are you hiding?
Come on all this talk about needing to recharge and being overwhelmed. I am not surprised if friends of your ex moved when you too broke up, that is the usual way unfortunately but it is true of all people. You just need to stay in touch with people you meet like me and Will. I think we gave you our coordinates. Just so you know we are leaving for PEI this Thursday but will be back in a week. So do you think we could get together at that point, of course unless your social calendar is over stuffed with events.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Ciao!

Think of it this way: blogging can be a 'foot in' to meet people! Most of my current friends seem to be derived from reading blogs and then getting to know them in person - like you! Alas, the distance is a factor but I have several friends connected so.

I hope you having met Will and Laurent may develop a friendship outside of blogging.

This not so smart phone would not let me reply for days. I will be meeting Laurent, he is supposed to bring me back a potato from the potato capital of the world!
Michael, you can fly back up and meet with us again, you're welcome to if you want! :-)
