Default 1996 Online a lot Hermit! 2016 Offline a lot Hermit!

So to explain the title when I was in high school and spent a lot of time online with most of my friends being digital ones that were considered not real friends.

I was told this made me a Hermit.

Yesterday I joined Tinder. I made a match. I said, "Hi" I was then told I was a man of few words because apparently greeting people is supposed to be more than hi. I was told it was chatroom style etiquette I should be using. Given that the last time I was in a casual chatroom that meant "A/S/l? Cyber" I felt I might not quite know what etiquette they were talking about.

Explaining that I spend most of my time with friends and family offline I was called a hermit with no apparent sense of irony.

Does this make any sense to anyone?

Guess that makes me a hermit. I have a Twitter account I check every couple of days, and I'm not on FaceBook, PInterest, Instagram, etc.

I think I've only ever made two "tweets" ever, but I feel a lot of that is due to growing up in the message board/e-mail mindset (including building my own forum from the code up just to see if I could).
