“Do not chase people. Work hard and be you. The right people who belong in your life will come find you and stay. Do your thing.”
That is very true about relations and friendship. Jariel (we level together in ESO atm) is that kind of friend and I think I am for him too. We met in Rift years ago and have been playing 3 different mmo together now.
A lot of people I have met on my way through the metaverse just comes and goes. A few stay, but them who stay often become friends beyond the metaverse. Its like this with Jariel, we can trust each other and knows the other one wont just disappear. We can lose contact for weeks sometimes, but we both know the other one is just a skype call away:) It may take a while before you can identify a real friend, only time will tell…. and if he/she stays “for better or worse”, not just when “the sun is shining”.
Its like in a relationship, a friendship needs some work. You cant misstreat it too much, then it will die. I sometimes try to stay in touch with new friends for a while but when i notice its only me who is trying, i give up. Its not worth it and I dont wanna be a stalker:)
