My experience has been the same as yours, lil.

Back in March I just came back to my country from almost 3 years abroad, and I had plans to go out and do many things with my friends. When the recommended quarantine started, all those plans were put on hold indefinitely. I got to see my friends once or twice in the two weeks we had before quarantine, but that's it.

During the pandemic, I have the exact same "online messaging" experience you have. I rarely get messages, but when I do I usually postpone answering them. Maybe because I know there's no way that those people are asking me for something urgent, after all, we can't leave home to do anything anyways. I almost never send messages or reach out to friends, but I think that's because of depression/anxiety/low self-steem, that got worse during the quarantine. Although, I already told some friends not to expect to hear from me, and they seemed fine with it.

For now, I keep interactions with my close family (those who live in my house) and girlfriend.

That is a nice title for a song. I enjoy this type of literal translation. Also, "patético" can be a very useful word in many contexts, so it's a good one to know :)

I like how "lista do balde" is a literal translation of "bucket list" in Portuguese ^^

Women are also less likely to agree/accept a message that preaches they should be in a subordinate position within society. People feeling lost like being told they are special (thus men accept more of JP's material) while none likes being told they are inferior, especially when they lack a direction in life (thus women tend to stray away from JP's messages).
