He would never admit to having a friend one way or the other and we never know if he was telling the truth.

So what's the point of playing his game if not to feed his ego?

People who are blind never see anyone's face, yet it does not stop them from making friends.

How do you find out the background of someone in person? By talking to them. Why can't the same be done online?
Cos they will give you fake information.
A blind person my not make online friends.
cos he/she can't chat online.
A blind person is not as much as fool as people involve themselves in online.


I wasn't talking about blind people making online friends, I meant in person. They can't see. And you asked how can one be friends with someone they haven't seen. By your logic wouldn't blind people be unable to have friends?

And what stops someone you meet in person giving you fake information? Do you think everyone on the internet has the agenda of giving everyone they meet false information?

Why does it matter to know the background of a person anyway? You can still have rewarding conversations with people whos background you don't know.

The way you get to know any person, whether online or not, is through communication. You can communicate through the internet... so I really can't understand why you think you can't get to know someone online.

Does any one in web is ready to help you when you get hard times ?

The friends I have that I know only through the internet have indeed helped me to get through some tough emotional times in the past. Not only that, but one has lent me money when I was in a bind once. He trusted me completely to pay him back and i'd trust him too if he ever needed help.

how you guys get friends?

For starters, you might try avoiding calling potential friends fools and telling us we're all wasting time for having friends, that our friends are useless, and that you feel sorry for us. I would be offended if I wasn't busy feeling sorry for you.

Quote
You wast time in

Celebrations
Parties
Weekends
alll

I never attended above all that social groups meet together.
NOTHING ...
I don't know any thing about this......

YOU guys are so desired to move on with this stupid online culture.
You guys seek for friends which is useless ..

The brutal truth is there's probably reasons you have no friends, telling people the most enjoyable part of our lives is useless may be the latest on the list. I think you need a change of additude, or proper psychiatric help.
No I don't need any psychiatric help.
cos I think like them and I know what they say ....

I am sorry if this post hurts your feelings.

The Internet is a different form of communication.  Some people have grown accustomed to it, others have not.  Let's look at other forms of [artificial] communication to which people have grown accustomed.

So often people on the phone will say, "Oh, it's good to hear your voice". However, they are actually hearing a reproduction of the person's voice.  It's not real over the phone, it's "phoney" (get it?).  Yet, it's very real in the sense that we can hold a spontaneous conversation with the other person.  It's as though the person was "right in front of us".

How often do people point to a photo and say, that's my husband/wife/mother/father/son/daughter/etc.  But it's not.  It's a piece of paper with an image.  Someone from the jungle might think, "Hmm, this person thinks that their mother is this piece of paper that I take into my hands, tear in two and throw into the fire."  Conversely, we hear about primitive cultures who shun being photographed because they think the camera captures their soul.  Well, doesn't it?  So many people have looked at a photo of a loved one who's far away or passesd on and they have openly wept? Certainly photos have captured something of people.

So many people are excited, encouraged, saddened, etc by the movies and TV shows that we watch.  And yet, these things are totally fake, and we know it, yet it cannot help but stir our natural emotions when we expose ourselves to them.  Consider the profound effects caused by pronography.

The Internet is a very abstract medium.  It is mostly digitalized so, who knows, you or I or anyone else might acutally be a highly sophisticated computer program. 

Remember, no one knows you're a dog on the Internet.
Well you are incorrect man.
Why did you call me a dog ?
I never bark like dog ?? some kind of innocent carnivora ???

How dare you to call me like that ? Insulting a person is easy....

have a look at your self where you stand.
I might be underdog. but not a bog who use or bark bad words like you laymans do.

Insult what ever you want ... say what ever you want to I don't become that..
I know what I am ...
You have desire lot of friendship desire in this internet.
for explaining 2d images and reproduced voice of Electromagnetic principle (When the electrical current flowing through the voice coil changes direction, the coil's polar orientation reverses. This changes the magnetic forces between the voice coil and the permanent magnet, moving the coil and attached diaphragm back and forth)  2d images and voice is really foolish concept of yours.

this is only we got to communicate.

you have discovered that you are dave someday ask your self find your self or you might become DiscoverDog LOL

if you don't want to reply don't reply .

STOP fooling your self calling a good UNIQUE person as a dog on Internet.

IF I call you a pig on internet how would you feel ?

Kiran dave was not calling you a dog ...
What he meant was that When someone is on the internet be them naughty or nice.. naughty being a "DOG" then the internet gives them the protection of hiding all those flaws which are the true parts of themselves that some people prefer to not show others on the net.. not that you were a dog!

In this reference dog refers to kind of the sexual intent of a man.. you know.. to seek out fun sex.. play, flirting etc... one tract mind kinda thing.. when it comes to playful sexual incounters etc...I think it is not souly defined to sex but do you get what I mean?

People like the anoniminity, or cloak and dagger, part of the internet.. they can be who they want and hide the parts of themselves which would normally be hard to hide face to face...

They can role play taking on any character of their choosing.. they can be happy go lucky or sad and forlorn... they can be whoever they are not or even the best of who they really are.. which is nice..Frankly I see this every day here in this forum, and many other places as well.
You just need to worry about you and the you you wish people to know! I choose to be myself it suits me best.

Dave explained it very well, better then I could.. no body thinks you are a dog! Nobody thinks you are a bad man. Nobody thinks you have done anything bad.. You are misunderstanding us. OK?

It is just this language barrier.

For you, you are not used to  or familiar with our English references and sayings. They are far less literal in our language, then in yours. They mean different things.

Speaking the language, and understanding it, are different things. It takes much time to be able to interpret our slangs, and different sayings that are used to describe certain things.

Kiran If you are not sure what some one means then ask. Dave was not insulting you at all!

I fear my explanation of the term "Dog" was a poor example, but Dave explained it better. Okay?

I fully respect your culture! I must say that it is complicated to translate things that seem terrible to you, but are in actuality just simple slangs to us.

 I understand you have had little to no experience in social skills as you have stated, but, this is an opportunity for you to learn the needed skills for you to be able to understand a society different then your own.

You have great potential and are a good person. Please try not to think that everyone is out to think you are bad, or anything like that because its just not true!

I understand when you say that being lonesome has given you the opportunity to look deeper into yourself, and to fill your mind with knowledge of science and the things you love. This is a good way to spend alone time. You will continue to be a good person.

Being social and making friends isn't easy. When you speak to me in messages you are being social. Then telling me about yourself, and teaching me about your beliefs, and sharing your thoughts with me or others are all good ways to be a friend.

It is not necessary to become obsessed with the friend thing. Some people prefer acquaintances, and distant friendships because they are easier to maintain. Others want more personal face to face friendships. Do you understand?

If science and such make you happy, and fill your heart with all the emotional feelings you need to feel like a whole person, then thats cool, but if your heart desires a friend then you should make friends by talking to others and sharing your interests with someone who is mutually happy to share theirs with you.
Its as simple and as plain as that.

"Nobody knows you're a dog on the Internet" is a funny cartoon that's been around for years, which is shown below.  It has nothing to do with calling anyone a dog.  It has to do with the fact that a person's identity can be totally unknown on the Internet.  A person can claim to be a retired used car salesman in South Africa, but could actually be a 10-year-old girl in New York City.  I think the word play on "dog" is in regards to sexual attractiveness.  Someone claims to be beautiful/handsome and posts a photo of someone else who is beautiful/handsome in hopes of attracting someone's romantic interest.

This thing is more than 15 years old.

Forget it DiscoverDave!!! :-X
He'll never understand what you mean so why you wasting your time? [xx(]

I don't know if people are obsessed with it, but I think many people accept online "neighbors" as readily as they accept real-life next-door neighbors.  Then there's the newness and uniqueness of these relationships ... learning about other peoples, other cultures, other thoughts, etc without having to travel half way around the world.
I am sorry Mr.Dave for misunderstanding.
