(throwaway account bc he makes use of reddit)
So I met certainly one of my greatest pals three years in the past on minecraft and we’ve talked fairly incessantly ever since. I worth him the identical because the shut pals I’ve in actual life and he actually makes me so glad. I dwell within the UK and he lives in Turkey so there’s a little bit of distance between us and it’s unlikely that we’ll meet for a couple of years as a result of we’re each solely 17 however I’m advantageous with this and luxuriate in having the ability to speak to him on discord.
The primary drawback is that we don’t video name and he doesn’t ship footage of himself. I’m fairly open with my life and inform him tales and stuff and he follows all my social media the place I submit footage of myself however the identical can’t be mentioned for him. In the entire time we’ve been pals I’ve seen about 7 footage of him, he doesn’t submit something on social media and he has by no means video referred to as me (I generally put my digicam on). I’m not frightened about being ‘catfished’ however I’d similar to to see extra of him seeing as I take into account him certainly one of my greatest pals. I introduced it up as soon as and he mentioned one thing about how simply because we’re pals doesn’t imply I must learn about his ‘non-public life’.
I don’t know if I’m being too invasive and will respect his privateness or if I ought to say one thing/trace about it a bit extra. Any and all recommendation is welcome!
Tl;dr : web buddy of three years by no means sends images of himself whereas I’m open with my life- do I push for extra or depart it’s?
