Pandemic come without being invited. Then me, as an extrovert, become more depressed staying at home, when real life friends gradually lose from the daily conversation. People may have their own preferences in the way they connect each other. When someone is fun at talking, but in the chat, they seem not putting any excitement to build the connection. (or maybe they’re not interested in talking to me either) 🙁
Then I seek the media to connect me with the outside of the world on the internet. I tried so many various instant roulette chats. But what I got, I became more lonely. And it’s mentally draining. Even more, meeting so many strangers in instant apps is really creepy. People can shamelessly share their unsolicited pictures without their chat partner’s consent. So many times, I feel sexually harassed over instant chats.
But finally, I reinstall Slowly.
Been through a lot of topics in instant chats. But, I feel like it’s not as liberating as Slowly provide for me. So many great thinkers are here. They are willing to talk about deep thoughts when instant messaging partners don’t want to be bothered by they-call-it-as-boring-theme.
Thus, in this app, my identity crisis is slowly cured. I found so many eye-opening thoughts about the meaning of life. Maybe not all people are interested in this topic. But compared with the instant chats, writing here is more healing for my soul. I feel accepted in the decent way of talking.
I don’t know what I have to say for Slowly developers.
But, sincerely, thanks a lot for helping me in this horrible situation 🙂
