I Believe That Internet Friends Are Real

Friendship is real... no matter what means it is spent! 11,667 People

    In my experience, internet friends become

    friends that you can rely on, due to the nature of how you become friends.

    I think internet friends CAN be real friends is

    probably a better way to characterize my own thoughts on this subject. I think that one's online friendships can be just as significant and beneficial as offline friendships. In the end, it seems to me that it comes down to the connection. Whether or not the actual bond is there...

    It's Not A Belief, It's A FACT!

    I spent four of the very best years of life living with a internet friend. We met online, connected, fell in love, met for real and it was all real. She is my soulmate and dream woman in every way. Real people, family, broke us up but one day, one glorious and wonderful day I...

    Curse You Internet ..

    .Here we are in this day and age. Making strong connections with people who are like us, but far away, some half across the world. Some we may meet in real life, only briefly, to go back after each to our own world, with little chance of that outside connection becoming a lasting...

    I believe that Internet friends are real too. I've made a few good friends on the net. I'm very cautious though when it comes to meeting anyone so I hate it when my friends or family tell me to stay off the net making friends because it's dangerous. A person can meet a stranger...

    The definition of friend is someone with whom

    you share a mutual bond of affection, so internet friends count! Woohoo. You don't have to have actually met someone IRL to get on with them, share common experiences and generally have a blast. The internet and sites like this are a great place to strike up friendships.

    When I message you, who ever you are,

    you are not a screen, you are not a computer, you are a human being. You breath, you feel, you laugh, you cry. And you are real. That means that if we're friends we're real friends and not just letters flashing back and forth on a screen.
