Fandango’s Provocative Question #9 — This, That, and The Other

Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question. By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest. What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be […]

Saw this and had to interact – so what is your opinion on if not one, both questions?

  1. Right now I am struggling with finding time. I am a stay at home mother of 3 and a writer. But I am finding that time is not something I have a lot of. There never seems to be enough time in the day to do my writing and blogging and playing with my little ones. It’s something I need to figure out and in time I’m sure I will.

    Virtual relationships to me aren’t real because the in person connection isn’t there. The communication is through a medium instead of just naturally occurring

  2. Thanks for the reblog, Rory. But aren’t you going to answer one or both of the questions? C’mon. I answer your questions, don’t I?

  3. “What are you struggling with the most right now?”

    What am l NOT struggling with is perhaps the better question – l am struggling with my shoulder and awaiting the surgery dates, l am struggling with my Sister and my Father’s estate and her complete and utter imbecility concerning not taking friendly advice and l am struggling with balance on my blog.

    “As a blogger, do you enjoy ‘virtual relationships’? Do you consider them to be real?”

    Apart from the fact that you do not display to the world your Avatar ID, you are a real person. I noted Teresa’s answer and whilst l am not a introvert l am, l prefer online – friendship’s many a time over real life friendships and l think this is quite possibly due to my Asperger’s.. To me the latter can result in that awkward ‘wet patch’ scenario, whereas many a time due to the lesser expectation of an online friendship, you do not experience that.

    Of course there is a difference. An online friendship develops at a more realistic rate than some real life friendships.

    You and l Fandango are not swinging buddies enjoying a beer swilling friendship and go out nightly and soon tire, no we are slowly building up an online friendship and like reality, true friendships can take time to establish. We can enjoy each other’s company through a literary laugh and smile, enjoy what we write, engage in the puzzles of life and or nude skiing.

    But are the online virtual friendships real? Well as l said, behind the screen you are a real person interacting and engaging with people.

    Online friendships are as real or false as one makes them.

    Here we are Fandango – l am guessing it didn’t show up on your site underneath the post?
