Parasocial relationships are strong emotional bonds with people you’ve never met and who do not relate back to you—or can’t, if they are fictional characters - If you’re good at making friendships in the real world you’re also good at experiencing parasocial relationships.

Like our social relationships in real life, parasocial relationships vary in type and depth. Relationships can be profound and develop over decades, while others are more like casual acquaintances.


Actually, if you are an introvert, you are likely to be good at "cool" social interactions on social media where you can have anonymity and choose the rules of engagement, and reticent at FTF relationships.
