People on sites understand this stuff. Everyone gets busy on real life. Just reconnect with them and explain the situation, they'll understand.

This is so true.. >~< and I feel so guilty...

I love all those friends that i left behind through the internet.. Yet I cant seem to muster up the courage to talk to them again..

Perhaps im afraid they dont remember me... >_<

Happened to me. I had a wonderful group of friends on a forum called batoto, a manga forum. Like seriously, they were like a cloud of happiness i indulged myself in everyday. I loved them all. Heck, even people i didn't know well on that forum, i loved. They all had sparkly different personalities. And then i got inactive. School got in the way. But that's just an excuse, i guess. I COULD have spent more time with them. But as time grew, so did my fear of meeting them again. Half a year later i went back to the forum, and they weren't there. Gone. New people had become the main focus, none of them even close to what i had before. Nice people, really. But not...the same. I miss them. They helped me out of suicide. Thanks guys <3

i feel like this every time i go on hiatus but ... at the same time i need to because i have other things to focus on

but theres this one friend i have and im her ONLY friend and she always misses me, which makes me feel bad. but sometimes she gets mad too, and she needs to realize that what im doing isnt personal or directed towards anyone.

I'm fairly sure almost everyone can relate. I had a really large,fun group I was in,and we were all friends and would sometimes chat till 2:00 A.M together. Then i got into other things,met new friends at another group,and gradually began to become less and less active. Around an entire year or two later,somebody from the group messaged me with this wonderful paragraph about how I,along with the rest of the group,had been her only friends for so long and influenced her to be more outgoing and she sent thank you notes to all of us. It made me feel horrible for ditching them since I had barely talked to them in 2 years XD

such thing happened to me to.i used to know a huge group of people online and we had such good times.we understood one another,i still laugh out sometimes when i think about the talks and jokes we had.
but at the end of last year school started to get busy,and i got used to ignore their conversations and just mind my own business.then suddenly i heard they'd celebrate the one year anniversary.on seeing them having activities i felt so sweet and bitter at the same time.
i spent a week drawing a picture and wrote each of their names on it,saying even if i had not been around for a long while,even if i may still keep silent in the group,but i said i'll love them all forever.

I know that feeling, ST. I've met incredible people through dA, and meaningful friendships, and then things catch up, I run out of energy and I sort of fade way for months at a time. It's hard, but here's the thing- life happens. It does, and it happens to everyone. So these people that you build these friendships with, they'll most likely get that things happen if you talk to them again. And if they don't, well, at least the initial friendship was something worth remembering, something that made you feel good.

:hug: One can only do so much when life happens, but its usually worth at least checking in on friends when you can, if you can. You're not a bad person, you're a person.

I do the same thing e_e

That's me with summer camps. I'm there for a week, get to know great people and start promising friendships, and then don't have time to answer their mails. Though I'd sometimes write them a letter, but the last one has been a Christmas card...

Or the simple thing of not answering ooold comments because it'd be awkward. I've still got ten of those in my inbox...

Makes me feel terrible as well. So I'm glad there are people who understand. ^^;

I'm glad I'm not only one, but I still feel bad though, they are really nice people.
salty-dreams Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
a terrible person for living your life? don't feel like that...if you simply said to them you are buisy you have nothing to feel bad about.
Rose-Eclipse Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think i know what you mean.
Jokerbug Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I feel you. I've had this happen so much and I don't know if I should even start talking to them again or if they've forgotten about me. When you talk to someone so much, you get this connection with them. There's a few people I have kept in contact with even after a few disappearances on my part. I explain to them what happened and they understand. It actually makes our relationship stronger because I've opened up and now they feel comfortable to open up to me.

I do this, but not because life gets hectic. I do it because I'm afraid to get too close to people. I feel like I will disappoint them or they will find out things about me they don't like (such as how crippling my social anxiety is, even online), or that I give off a weird vibe.

I feel exactly the same way... As much as I want to be more active here on dA and try to improve at my art, I simply don't have enough time... :iconsighingplz:

I have the same problem and I don't even mean to do it... Not with forums but with other stuff.
Ryuuto-Hakeshima Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013
That does not make you a terrible person- it just makes you a busy one.
