Is caring on the Internet a waste of time?

Here's the thing ...people forget there are real people on the other side of that screen...sometimes it helps and sometimes it's a waste of time ...it really depends

No I met my ex online and we were together for four years. We were in different countries but we visited each other at least twice a year. Upto a month at times. And we鈥檇 Skype every night. We stayed on Skype every night too that was super cute.
Then the pandemic happened and fucked shit up.

Everyone鈥檚 different. What works for you may not work for others.

Not at all, the trick is to not care much about absolutely everyone but instead choose the right people to dedicate your energy and time towards.

I'd say no. You can just try. If they mess up, it's on them but I am being me. I care for people. That's how I am.
@Beatbox34 It's an admirable trait.馃
No way. I connect better with those online. You just have to keep your circle small & invest wisely. Of course you're going to get burnt every now and then. I met a couple of the most intregal people in my life here actually.

I think being respectful is important. Don鈥檛 hid bad manners behind a username.

No, but better to not get overly invested in it. Care just the right amount.
Caring is sharing just careful what you share and who you share it with

Takes a lot of sifting and winnowing to figure who can be counted on.

It depends upon what you are caring about.
