For online friendships, it's tricky. I've never personally had anyone "backstab" me when it comes to irl friends, but I've definitely had a few from online do it. It's a lot easier to fake it when you're typing away on your keyboard compared to interacting face to face.

My advice would be to be a bit more selective when it comes to who you trust online. Treat online friendships as nothing more than casual until you know for sure they're trustworthy.



Ok i will definitely do that i have a tendency to trust people from the get go ill be more selective!

if by starting drama you mean posting a question then having people become rampant fools and play the blame game then yes i have.
Not sure why everyone does this whenever i ask a simple question -.- then again my friend did tell me not to ask for advice on crunchyroll for this reason >.<

Wait, is he talking about people he met online? Is that what this whole thread is about? I'm confused by the use of "chat logs" and "admin" in this story.


Yeah friends I met online


Then you might want to look up the online disinhibition effect; I think that'll give you some insight and explain why so many of your online friends seem so "fake" or two-faced. Most people aren't that bad, it's just how they act online.


Interesting......it's weird because most people i know aren't impacted by that effect whilst some are.

Its hard for me to keep friends around, mainly because during the week i work alot, and weekends i use to catch up with chores, pay bills, and go grocery shopping. For example today, i let an acquaintance hanging because i went grocery shopping, and then to the hardwear store to look at light fixtures. Then i come back, talk to them, and then get called to go pick up my 12 year old niece to babysit her for the damn weekend. i feel super bad, and i know they are probably pissed off at me, but i cant help it. Idk if that acquaintance will ever want to deal with me again.

i have a childhood friend who always gets pissed as i'm always unavailable. Unfortunately its because i'm in another city for university but in all seriousness I DONT HAVE TIME

with regards to the actual thread, thats pretty sad to hear that you've been back stabbed. Maybe you are unlucky like other people have said, there's no way all humans are assholes, you've just come across bad nuts, thats all

you'll find some good friends dw dw dw i believe in youuu

Don't be naive. Since we can't read someone's mind and you aren't Edward Cullen so keep in your mind that everything is just a fake, don't expect too much. Then you will be never being hurt. Life is cruel after all.
