English Essay 43: Online Intimacy

The Essayist: Sam

In the new era of technology, people are severely engaging in its outcomes, namely the internet day in-day out. The internet as a deceivingly virtual space has been employed by the vast majority of young people, in particular. It is widely believed that real intimacy does not have any substitute regarding being friendly and establishing good rapport amongst the young. This will be proven by considering lack of thrust through hiding one’s true-self as well as lack of exchanging feelings and emotions in individuals’ real lives.

To begin with, social dating online is on rise unfortunately, but, interestingly this aspect of the internet is regarded as a deceiving virtual space. For instance, the young put a mask upon their face so as to hiding their own true personality and maybe their weakness they might have. This phenomenon can weaken the level of trust and the reputation of this sort of intimacy which is so common these days; however, this atmosphere because of disloyalty among the loved has been gradually overshadowed by online intimacy.

Being aware of the dire consequences of online intimacy can open peoples’ eyes to its detrimental effects instead of real intimacy in outside world. For example, dating in a tranquil ambiance in the nature with a real person can give them real experience. This example clearly shows individuals can share their pure feelings in such a unique atmosphere and diminish their negative emotions in person. This helps them to recharge their battery simultaneously with the help of both a real friend and the nature they walk in.

After analysing lack of trust and genuine emotions in online intimacy, this is proven that social dating online should be substituted by real intimacy which is so worthwhile based on the needs of today’s world for young people.

    Would you rather be happy yet slow-witted and unimaginative, or unhappy yet bright and creative? For instance, would you rather live the life of a brilliant yet tortured artist, such as Vincent van Gogh, or that of a happy but carefree soul who is a bit simple-minded?

    I prefer to challenge this question at first and bring up my viewpoint next.
    There are different successful people in the world who reached the apex through different procedures. Although some have faced torture to reach their goals, it does not mean we have to necessarily lose something in our life to climb the ladder of success. Anyway, I suppose the most enjoyable part of life is making progress and relying on your abilities to flourish and thrive. So, I personally go for intelligence and innovation rather than happiness along with naivety. Many people have lived an ordinary life so far and repeating this story can never excite me at all. We need to gain new adventurous experiences and foster our abilities so as to break out of comfort zone.
