How does your computer eliminate the loneliness of being a stay at home?
Mostly because I can socialize on it without leaving home.
I've always socialized on my PC even before lock down.
It doesn't... but I'm not lonely.
it doesn't... it's a tool that can provide an opportunity.
When I say socialize I don't really mean social media.
I really don't use social media, all I do is communicate with people on my PC, with both my IRL and online friends. Sometimes I'll even game with them.
I truly appreciate this! You are making the best use of it. You are admirable.
Why thank you lol. That's very kind of you.
My PC does not eliminate loneliness but definitely plays some role in making it better as I use it for social interaction like here for example
I'm a hermit... What is this "loneliness" of which you speak?
LOL, hermit club for life!
Mine sleeps a lot!
I definitely agree with you, Social interaction can be a help to a person who needs help like what I did. I also read an article like this one that I found recently https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/02791072.2020.1836435
I would be stuffed without the PC Im not big on texts or Facetime so most of my conversations are done through the PC, TBH this place and 1 or 2 others are my main way of socialising outside of my boys Karate club ... last few months have been tough no lie
It is not like a severer loneliness but I can not go to boardwalk with bunch of people just to see "life" , in this way I mean it. Can not go to restaurant normally to hang out without distancing and masks etc., etc. Life is definitely different....
These are things not many people talk about, the article you linked but it is true I believe.
When I want to see "life" I look at the baby deer in the spring, the birds at the feeders, the squirrels stashing acorns... That kind of thing. Pandemic hasn't changed any of that.
Oh, yes, I know exactly what you mean but I like people too.... ;-)
Thanks, I appreciate your belief about it I do believe it as well.
Yes, I do but I totally understand @Tyrosonwood point as well.
I think he means life in a different way, I should have said humans or people, not "life"
You have a point there How are you feeling right now? Feeling good or what?
