    The internet seems to be my new stand-in lover

    for when I feel abandoned and unloved by my real one. Can't talk to anyone about how I feel so I get on the internet to try to distract myself or find strangers to talk to. I feel like crying but no tears will come out. How frustrating is that? Happens a lot lately.
