Have you ever thought about love in the virtual world?
I mean sometimes you can’t have it all, but you get to have maybe a snippet.
A snippet that either becomes nothing or something.
In the virtual world you meet many people. Many friends come and go. Some stay.
Then one day you meet someone. Someone special and your heart beats harder and faster.
You look forward to them logging in and spending time. What is a friendship slowly turns into the feelings of love.
Are those feelings real? I think you can never be sure until you stand in the same space and look into each other’s eyes.
But in the meantime you develop understanding and habits and feelings.
For some that carries out into the real world to become true love. For others it is only whilst you log on and then log off. But the lives are separate.
Then for others, there is the disappointment of lies and deception and the reality that is so common in the virtual world. Where people travel to be something other than their true selves. They become something or someone who they are not. In the process, forgetting that their lies can hurt beyond the virtual world and stain the hearts of the true romantics they deceive.
Welcome to Love in the virtual world. Where its either waters running smoothly or a current that lays underneath that sweeps when you least expect it.
I was watching the news this morning. Now bearing in mind it’s difficult to ascertain if it’s correct or not because well we can’t believe everything we see anymore.
Apparently those on the red carpet at Cannes are not allowed to take selfies.
If they do whip out the phone camera apparently they will be removed off the red carpet.
In this day and age I can think of bigger issues. On the other hand I can also see that the red carpet is the zone where celebrities as part of their role are to be interacting with the press and fans. But with today’s technology fans also extend to Twitter and Instagram . Not sure on this one but I’ve decided I’m going to roll out a red carpet outside my front door later and let them know they’re welcome to come selfie.
