Well, it is easy to get caught up in online activity. Television is similiar, but not very interactive.
I spent a period when the internet was all there was, and eventually rediscovered the concept of reality. There really isn't a substitute for doing
things in real life, and I think a lot of people lack this and wind up online doing a lot of talk and no action, thus when the internet becomes
boring, they truly are bored beyond belief, because they have absolutely nothing to fall back on.
My suggestion is this; find things that interest you and do them in real life and complement it with people online that share those things.
One of the best things to do is find your creativity. Everyone doesn't need to learn to paint, but everyone has some sort of niche out there for
being creative in their own way. Find something you enjoy doing that requires a hands-on approach and go with it.
Research and learning
just about anything out there has tons of possibilities and specific disciplines. Do the things that catch your interest and surely it will make your
online life more fun, because you will have something you have a passion for that other people will want to talk about besides nothingness.
Myself? I enjoy about 100 or so different things, so I would probably never get bored. In fact, the only time I do get bored is when I have less
than 15 minutes to waste and it isn't enough time to actually devote to any of them thoroughly enough to satisfy me.
