Keeping love connections open

No comments on this statement..;-)

"I've found that if a man doesn't interest me online, he doesn't interest me offline either. I don't feel like I can get to know a person anymore without e-mail or IM. Even when we're not creating internet personas, we're different in our online writing -- funnier, braver, more intimate. I want to know that side of him, and I really notice its lack when it's missing."

  1. I think this strikes a good point. It is known from different studies as well as my own personal experience that online communications might open people up more quickly than offline. The funny thing is that with todays postmodernist focus on bodies, (serious) online communications might transform this focus on a long term basis into a more intimate relationship.

  2. Thanks for your comment. Read it on my cellphone while in a bar with a friend, and it was a great inspiration for a good discussion....
