Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am often very personal here even if I don't want to be. Sorry that I can't restrain my self. Intelectually I am not of a caliber of many of you guys here but at the same time do not feel pity for me because it's not only that I am not envious but to the contrary I feel pity for you...ha-ha.

There is Arab proverb that goes:

He who seeks to understand everything
risks dying of anger.
- Arab proverb

I never believed in Internet relationships ...let alone love affairs ...and even Internet friendships were not comparable to real life relationships for me...it's different somehow. Those net "friends" were/are  there, always available on " click "but still like children's imaginary friends...if you know what I mean.
I found my self recently "crying on the shoulder" of a net friend, total stranger, that I never met and probably will never meet. We actually were "enemies" back at the times when it looked that she supported Milosevic and I was furiously against him. Two of us exchanged harsh words at the time. Would you believe that she cried for help and support when she was experiencing rough time and I am doing it now not being able to resolve problems in my life?
It's not that I have not real life friends. All though it's much harder to make them when you have to start from scratch in your 40-ies...but sometimes we feel so lonely ...even in the middle of crowd.
