- I am male, 20 years old
- Online friend is male, 18 years old
Let's call my friend Dean, we've known each other for nearly 8 years now and have played together on PlayStation pretty much every week since then. We laugh a lot, have the same taste in music, like games and memes. We write each other daily, both problems and funny stuff/memes. I could easily visit him, he only lives like 40 minutes away from me.
You could say we're best friends, except for the part that we haven't met each other in real life - although we use Snapchat regularly I simply don't know how to approach him if I see him. We talked about a ton of embarassing things I don't want to mention here and still can talk to each other like brothers - but via voicechat.
He seemed to get quite social over the last few years. I also got a lot more social and talkative but I still have problems talking to people because I simply don't know what to talk about. Simply talking about games all the time isn't that great of a topic. The weather is also not an option.
I don't have problems talking with other friends whose background I know well (what their hobbies are, what they do for a living, etc.)
Would talking about other hobbies and happenings in our lives be weird considering the circumstances in which we're friends?
