It's something I realized over my stay at Ushicon...
I'm going to be honest, I'm a little reserved concerning these internet relationships. I love dealing with you guys through a screen because it decreases the awkwardness.
Now, when I mean awkwardness, I mean me specifically. I've been more...free with myself on here. -//////-
Some of you have seen me completely defenseless about my feelings, devastatingly honest about my desires, and some of you have seen me stripped bare to who I am...
But I always felt that if we met in person...it would be way too awkward; like a man going to a hostess club and finding his daughter working there.
But when I went to Ushicon...makes friends was like dropping a fish into a pond. I forgot that I am just incredibly friendly and adaptable to meeting new people and reuniting with old friends.
(Again, these are people that haven't seen me as my best and worse.)
So, I realized this:
As long as we live, we have a chance of meeting each other in person. While the old me would be nervous about meeting you all...the new me can't be more excited to see you.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all for being my friends and I hope that one day, we can meet each other in person and be even better friends.
