As a friend of mine put it, the difference between a friend and a girlfriend is that a friend knows what you are going through. A girlfriend has no idea what is going on.

Although it’s not quite clear, it seems there is some kind of third category. I’m not sure what it is.
If you think of our relationship as being like an online friendship, then it’s really the most basic form of it. It’s a bond between two people that is formed through the sharing of a common experience. It doesn’t matter whether the experience is a good or bad experience, it’s the sharing of it that makes it a part of each of us.
The reason I ask is because I have noticed people with relationships that seem to have more in common with the online world. I am sure this is a trend that is here to stay. For example, I have noticed that people with online relationships seem to have a harder time identifying with or even liking the “real” world. As a result, they seem to have more anxiety about being alone.
I was talking with a friend who has a pretty good online life. He is comfortable enough to talk to and meet with people from all over the world. He is also confident enough to share these experiences with people. He is very comfortable sharing experiences with people he knows and is comfortable with the idea that they will know him well enough to appreciate his confidence in sharing his life with them. He can see how his comfort with talking with people he knows makes him feel safe and secure.
He does have an online persona, but that is his online persona. He is not the online persona for whom he goes to school or who he spends his weekends with. He is not the online persona who he calls his girlfriend, boyfriend, or husband. He is not the online persona he hangs out with at the gym or the bars. He is not the online persona he meets in person, or to whom he shows up on a webcam.
You don’t have an online persona, you just think you do. You have a personality. A set of online behaviors. A set of online behaviors that you feel good about, like maybe you go to the gym, or you are a good listener, or you like dancing. That can be a very useful skill, but it can also be a distraction. You think you have some kind of online persona, a certain way of being. That is not the real you.
The way we’re thinking about the relationships we have online is similar to how we think about the way we have online relationships with people in real life. Both of them are about trying to find a balance between being online and being in the real world.
The problem with this idea that we have a real and online persona is that it can lead to a lot of confusion and self-doubt. There are some times when it’s perfectly fine to be online and offline at the same time. For instance, I can be in the gym or on the couch, and that’s fine. But if I’m on the couch or at the gym, it’s hard for me to be in the real world.
