Lonely? Do not broadcast and do not consume broadcasts

Are you lonely?

Tweeting or posting on forums feels like connecting with the world (especially when randos actually answer), but when you don't address anyone in specific, then you're really talking to no one. You're like a radio broadcast.

And following other people's broadcasts, listening in on internet conversations, easy too. It's a sort of sweet, salty fat that fools you. You fill up an internal social quota but you haven't gotten anything out of it.

And worse, because you're sort-of satisfied, you're not driven to make a real connection with someone. How about texting that friend you haven't texted in ages? Stop participating in broadcasts, and that might soon look much more appealing.
