Recently, I joined a local men’s accountability group. It has reminded me of the importance of connecting with others face to face, not just digitally.
Don’t get me wrong, I love technology, social media, and blogs and have found meaningful relationships this way. However, it takes relationships longer to develop if they’re only online.
Also, there is just something about literally sitting across from another person and seeing the life in their eyes. You can’t always get this with online relationships.
It has been really neat to for me to actually get to meet some of the people with whom I’ve previously only connected with online, like the time I went to NYC, Colorado, and Virginia. This has taken these friendships to a new level.
Question: What do your meaningful relationships look like? Are they online or in person?
