Our longstanding online contacts
April 21, 2016 11:33pm CST
There is an element of informality when we interact with our online contacts that we get to know at sites such as myLot and others. We come quite close and some even open a wee bit of their personal life. Sadly however the moment we decide to leave the site or the site closes, the contact snaps instantly. Despite exchanging emails and even being friends on FB the closeness disappears. A sad situation but face we must. This takes me to a scene at my office that I had visited after I resigned from there. The watchman who used to stand and salute pushed a visitor's register for me to sign before I walked in. I was there for 22 years and overnight I became a stranger there.

I remember going back to my place of work after I had retired, and I just did not feel comfortable. People soon forget you. It is nice that a lot of the people we knew on other sites, are on this one now, so we can still keep in touch.
