Every once in a while, I really enjoy getting to know someone over chat. I think I like it so much because the person I am talking to is choosing to share whichever version of themselves they are experiencing right in the moment. I will never truly know them, in fact I may only ever interact with them once in my whole life for maybe an hour. But I honestly think this is true for real life or "unplugged" relationships as well, we're just better at fooling ourselves into thinking people are constants when they share the same physical space with us. For me, it's a nice reminder that everyone is in flux, online or not, and to try and be mindful of their present selves regardless of any previous knowledge I have of them.
