The World Has Gotten Smaller

airplane-698539_1280Just 15 years ago the only way anyone could meet someone from another country was on vacation, or in an airport. The internet has changed everything. It has made the world a lot smaller place. Anyone can get online now, join a community and be connected with people all over the world instantaneously. It is kind of amazing, really. We get to learn things about cultures, experiences, what life is like in our new friend’s part of the world. You never know how chatting with someone online can change your perception of relating across all levels. It can be refreshing, and it is a nice way to meet people that you might not otherwise have a chance to. In the end, everyone wants to feel that they are connecting with others. Having communities online is just another way to find likeminded individuals to learn more about. Often times these connections lead to something more, be it ephemeral interests or even marriage. There is a beginning, and middle and an end to most everything. It is just nice to have new experiences, and to meet new people, from the comfort of your couch.

The UK-based KikFinder is a great community to meet new friendsĀ on KiK, to socialize, and a place to pass time while learning some new things, and perhaps making some new friends. As with most open online communities, there is something for everyone! There is something perfectly innocuous about having some fun with a person online every once in a while. It is important to use some discretion, but it really is just a way to connect and have a little fun. There are varied interests, from some looking for a slightly more substantial exchange, to those that are just bored and wanting to chat. Although this service is based in the UK, there are people from all over the world. This makes it a nice place to come to separate from the predictability of fraternizing with those from your area or region, and discuss something new with a person whom you will likely never meet.

Some people are still interested in expressing themselves in the most basic way, shedding their garments, and thereby being very clear about why they are on the site. Others are not posting any pictures, and are just looking to talk to someone. The site has something for everyone, and if you don’t want to chat with someone who is looking to just chat, there are plenty of other options. In the end, it is nice to have a site where there are so many options, and where you can pick and choose who you want to talk to, and what you want to talk about, based on your mood.
