Online Friendships

I know a lot of people have pretty strong views about online friendships; mostly that they can’t be true friends, or variations on that theme. I, however, disagree completely.

Last night the proverbial hit the fan here, big style. I’m not going to go into details, but it was one of the hardest nights of my life and I don’t know what I would have done without the wonder of twitter. People can moan about it all they like, but when it’s 3am (or 4am, or 6am) I know of very few people in real life who would appreciate a text of panic, but on twitter that’s not a problem. There’s always someone there, always someone who cares enough to ask how you’re doing and if they can help.

I have no idea what I would do without my twitter friends, they’re all fantastic and even though most of them live miles away, Scotland, Ireland, various places in England, I still consider them friends and would love to meet them! I probably know more about some of them than I know about my real life friends and they probably know more about me too!

This sounds like a shameless plug for my favourite social networking site but I swear it’s not, just a thank you to all the people I tweet with for being incredible, especially @weewifie1981 who was such a star last night, I appreciate you all so much.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that we manage to get back on track because I don’t know what I would do without him, I love him so much.

In other news, not a lot has been going on.

Sorry for the boring post but wanted to thank you all (especially the girls on twitter) for all your help.

This is hard. Really hard. I am so confused at the moment and my emotions are going from non existent to heart broken in split seconds. I wish he would stop trying to push me away and let me help him. I feel like the sand is fast slipping through my fingers and all I can do is marvel at the speed with which it disappears.

On the plus side I think we are making progress. We’re going for a romantic dinner together tomorrow night in an attempt to start again. I’ll try anything, starting from scratch, prayer, I’d even go to church if I thought it would help!
