Net Life!

Posted on: July 3, 2008

It was the usual day. And I had just finished my work. Though it was not allowed to chat from the office I had found a way to open the link and connect with my friends. As I opened the chat site that day, I got a new chat invitation. Usually I am skeptical of the net people since I know the dangers involved. I was tempted to reject the invite but thought otherwise and accepted (I still canโ€™t fathom why I ever did that!).

ย 

I later came to know it was one of my blog buddies!๐Ÿ™‚

Our timings of coming online matched (or I tried to match it!)๐Ÿ˜‰

ย 

Initially our chats were only for about a few minutes. But later I found that I never wanted to go off line till he suggested that.

ย 

Time passed by and our chats duration increased from minutes to hours.

ย 

I would wait for โ€œThe Timeโ€ so that I can see his smiling face on my screen. We chatted about any thing and everything.

ย 

He probably never knew that my heart would go into tachycardia when he so much as send a โ€œsmileyโ€ across. And a wink? My god, my heart would just do a somersault!๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

If somebody would pass by, I would look like a love struck teenager with a silly grin on my face with my eyes fixed on the computer and the fingers flying on the keyboard!

ย 

But, itโ€™s been a few days now that he has not come online. 6 days, 4 hours and 20 mins to be precise!

ย 

No news, no nothing… he is not active on the blog either.๐Ÿ˜ฆ

ย 

And then suddenly the orange colour appeared on screen! It might be him!

ย 

Please,God please, let it be him, pleeeeeeeeease!

ย 

Yippee, it WAS him!

ย 

Our conversation went as….

ย 

me: โ€œwhere were you for so many days? Lโ€

ย 

chigs: โ€œno whereโ€

ย 

me: โ€œwhat do you mean, no where?โ€

ย 

chigs: โ€œI didnโ€™t want to chat with youโ€

ย 

me: โ€œwhat do mean? What happened suddenly?โ€

ย 

chigs: โ€œnothingโ€

ย 

me: โ€œ*angry* why are you sounding so different? What has happened? What is wrong with you? And why you donโ€™t want to chat with me?โ€

ย 

Chigs: โ€œ………โ€

ย 

me: โ€œif you donโ€™t tell, I will not know! I deserve to know what happened suddenly, or how have I offended you … whatโ€™s wrong?โ€

ย 

chigs: โ€œno, no its not because of you… you have not done anythingโ€

ย 

me: โ€œthen what? C yaar, I am already getting bugged… donโ€™t create suspense. I told you, I deserve to knowโ€

ย 

I was already out of my mind. He came online after so many days and was talking in riddles…!

ย 

chigs: โ€œactually I was getting too involved with youโ€

ย 

Was I reading correctly?

ย 

me: โ€œhun?โ€

ย 

My heart started beating faster…

ย 

Chigs: โ€œI canโ€™t think anything else other than you when we are not chatting, I wait for you to come online the whole day long, I love your smiles, I want to share each and every details of my life with you… I was going bonkersโ€

ย 

me: โ€œreally?โ€

ย 

I couldnโ€™t stop the smile that was spreading on my face and wanted to jump and dance!

ย 

Yippppeeee!

ย 

The things that followed are censored…๐Ÿ˜‰

ย 

We still chat everyday but the topics have changed! We still worry about the petrol price, inflation rate and cricket matches but smileys and winks have increased!

ย 

Frankly speaking, I donโ€™t know about the future of this long distance love affaire but I am madly in love with โ€œChigsโ€ and know for sure about his feelings too! Rest we leave to destiny!

ย 

Hey, bye, itโ€™s him on-line again, gotta go and chat with him!

I almost ruined my 9th grade ‘coz of internet chatting. He was a guy from the same school. We used to chat for hours together. He asked me out in the 10th grade! It was all this teenage puppy love kindda thing. Bah, it was cute then.

It is a very good idea to use First person in fictions, for if it comes to it, one can vent out his/her real feelings/stories and pass it off as fiction !!!

I used to wish to have such a chat-friend. The wish gradually faded๐Ÿ˜›

Like

@ adarsh

Now, now do i hear sarcasm in your comment?๐Ÿ˜›

Well, i feel it is easier to write in first person so i writein first person. But yes at times u can also be a bit more liberal in saying things also which otherwise u will not be able to say …๐Ÿ™‚

and u WISHED for a chat friend? i mean, friendships don’t occur spontaneously? i think i belong to old school!๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ™‚

Like

I didn’t intend even an iota of sarcasm !!! I, myself try to camouflage reality with fiction sometimes… and writing in first person is a good way to do that. I like to write in third person, though I may start to write in first person.

I didn’t yearn for a chat friend. I am just saying that it never happened to me, so I can’t really relate to it. I do believe that friendships can’t be formed intentionally.

PHBTS, a lot of them. cuz I read somewhere that u were married and when I read this, I got a K.A.N.K. shock๐Ÿ˜€

Hey….I believe its fiction, but I know people whose life changed because of net life (as ur title says)….And so far so good….its been real positive change…..hope its the same for everyone…[i reckon it shud be in limits]

yeah, it definitely should stay in limits but at times it does go out of hand! but what i have observed among my friends that they do get too emotional with even the net friends and the things do get out of hand!

but as you say, so far so good!
