OT: Scare quote friendships
Don’t let anyone tell you that social media “friends” are not real friends.
I suppose, if they’re only scare quotes “friendships,” that that could be true.
But you know, we can also have “friends” among the relationships with people who surround us every day.
I’ve been told that social media friends are only friends in words, but when push comes to shove they’re not there for you in meaningful ways. That they can hurt you just like a real friend can, but they can’t help you. All social media friends do is talk pretty. They don’t come across.
I agree that one point in discerning a real friend is knowing what someone will do for you when they know something’s wrong.
I found out.
My social media friends are real. Without scare quotes.
