My ears were a tingle. I always wonder what kind of impressions I make on people - especially when their first IRL experience is intoxicated insomniasexx. >.<
Those are really great questions. Imma answer some of them.
How do you manage your hubskiing when there is just so much to read or reply to?
I hide on reddit.
Who have you met in person?
mk, b_b, tng, humanodon, ButterflyEffect, mal-2, lil, _refugee_, theadvancedapes, ecib, Meriadoc, arguewithatree, cliffelam, NuclearParadox, Rockit, lucky_cabbage, ipreferpi, wasoxygen,
NC 1 - NC 2 - MARINA DEL REY - DETROIT - DC - BOSTON - NC 3
Did it change your relationship with that person at all?
Some people I've become WAY closer with since meeting - like TNG. Some people there hasn't been a super drastic change or anything - like b_b and I had no change whatsoever. :P Typically, if I talked with them a lot on Hubski before, it only progressed to more texting / facebook / intagram / etc since then. Sometimes, I shoot texts to people when there's something I want to say on Hubski but I don't actually want to say it.
Meeting in person definitely changes how I read a persons comments. I put a name and a face with the comments now. For some people, like ref, that doesn't really change much. Her comments are pretty much 100% her and aligned with the person I envisioned pre-meeting. lil - you as well are pretty much a direct reflection of your comments as well. I now have a face but it's only enhanced the relationship, not changed it.
Meriadoc was not how I pictured him AT ALL. I think the way I read his comments changed slightly since I have his face. I now read Cliff's comments differently as well. He has some opinions that are very different from my own, but I find myself truly trying to see his perspective rather than just another internet comment that I don't always agree with.
How long did it take you to love and appreciate kleinbl00?
I joined Hubski 904 days ago, I cussed him out (and then apologized) 383 days ago, and it probably was another couple months before I really started liking his more blunt, ranty, rambling, type things. I don't think we engaged much on Hubski for a good while though - I would say I was indifferent to him for my first year or more. So, it took perhaps maybe a year, year and a half? Although it was only a few months of not loving kleinbl00 in there. ;)
TNG, white, blob, ref. Their lives are literally out of fucking control - in a really good / productive way. I hope they don't implode from stress-fest, though. Sometimes I worry.
