I've discovered that I quickly run out of things to talk about when I'm conversing with someone of the opposite gender. My life, as exciting as it may seem to me, isn't exactly a life full of interesting stories to tell. And as much as I ask the opposing individual questions, I feel like I'm basically talking to myself and carrying the whole conversation on my own, so I get bored and lose interest (which is a bad thing). Yet at the same time, this loss of interest only occurs in the online world, so I guess I'll never try this Internet Dating thing that people talk about. I wouldn't be very good at it.
So, what does one talk about when one is trying to build a friendship? (If you've been keeping yourself up-to-date and reading between the lines a bit, you probably know what I'm talking about here.) As much as I want to trust this individual right now, I don't trust him enough to talk about really important stuff, and I don't know that he'd trust me that much just yet, either (you see what I mean?) There's so much that I'd like to say, you know, but I can't. Not yet.
Long distance relationships of any sort are the pits. Just so you know.
