Q.

When we first saw Meg Ryan in 'You've got Mail' , I remember we commented at that time ,'How silly' imagine waiting like that for a net-friend'.
Now it does not look silly anymore. We all wait for our e-mails with great anticipation and impatience.
Is it easier to connect online?

Yes it is - and I confess I haven't had breakfast yet, the first thing I do in the morning is make a cup of tea and switch on the computer to check my messages and mails - yes there is an eagerness and anticipation to see who has written and even disappointment if I do not hear. Unfair of me really because I must be one of the world's worst correspondents myself !!

This is the sheer joyful experience to read this question and to submit feelings for those who are willfully ``trapped`` in net-world. Millions of Kathleen Kellys and Joe Foxes all over the world had similar notion in their minds when they watched You`ve got Mail for the first time as the symptoms of e-mailing were not much visible. Gosh, it took less than a year for the storm to engulf all those who were looking for this kind of spot in their lives. Now there is no more ``How silly`` imagination dancing in our minds as emailing has become inseparable part of our lives. Literally, from the moment of my association with net-civil-code, there is not a single day in my netlife which has gone unnoticed by Yahoo Messenger. I feel no guilt in admitting that I have become thoroughly addicted with emailing with my friends all over. For years, barring few exceptions, we haven`t seen each other or met face to face. But it surely had not marred with any type of hindrances in our net~relationship. ...more

I will write my mail and immediately check if I have received a reply expecting that person to be there eagerly waiting for my mail! I only use my pen to sign my cheques and prepare shopping lists.My letter pads are used for that purpose. I have several email IDs which were created at the time when there was limited storage allowed but they kind of help my filing system now. I never shop for greeting cards but create my own and email them! There was a time when I used to compare the cards I received during Xmas with my other siblings and get quite upset if my collection was less than theirs. My xmas tree has no cards hanging save a few!

Though everyone says it is all virtual but to me it is more real than virtual.

How true! It is easier and faster to connect online and now that the postman is almost becoming an extinct creature, I also look forward to my emails and if some which I'm waiting for with great anticipation take long to arrive, I get quite impatient and say to myself "look at the lazy lout" or things like that. When I mail a letter I know it's going to take time to recieve a reply by post so I bide my time peacefully but with not so with emails.
