    I have a friend that I've never met in life,

    and she's 10 years my senior. We met through a forum, then Facebook. She has been more of a friend to me than most people I know in life. I have confided in her much, and we could talk at length. We don't have to talk everyday. Sometimes I would go for weeks without messaging...

    I met my boyfriend (Kinda sorta) over the

    internet, I believe that relationships do work online (friendships or otherwise), you just have to be a little more wary at first

    They are, you know! Ok,

    we have fake names but what is in a name? I feel l am more myself and real on here than in real life. Don't get me wrong, l do have a few close friends in real life l confide in, of course, but l don't share my innermost, darkest, deepest thoughts with them. Why? When l...

    But I don't have any.

    .. I have an account on every social network from Facebook (mostly RL friends) to Reddit. I do this so I can meet different people that share my interests and not have, say, just my RL family and friends following me on Twitter. The problem is my RL shyness has permeated my...

    The problem with online friendship is

    that when things go wrong, we split. When I say something that makes you uncomfortable, or when you offend me, we’ll go our separate ways more often than not. And this flies in the face of how people actually become friends. True friendship only happens when people honestly...

    A Menagerie of AcquaintancesI have met

    so many people online over the years. I remember the first site I used to chat was IRC circa 1994. It was awesome to think that you could log on and form friendships with people from all over the the world!  It fed my inquisitive nature. A friend and I used to log on at a...

    Yes, I do feel internet friends are real.

    Having said that, interacting with people far away through text can be extremely difficult and frustrating at times. I must admit that I am also guilty of the miscommunication that I sometimes accuse others of. All people see words or statements in different ways at times. That...

    I am able to express myself, rather than to be judged in reality. My friends on the internet are my escape. I love you guys :*

    Disposable It's funny how you can mean the

    world to someone one minute and be nothing to them the next. Online friendships are new to me. I never did the chat room thing, and my Facebook friends are actually friends, people I know offline, so this concept of online friends not being real friends is strange to me. If 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 have several Internet friends!

    I would rather talk to them about my problems than my actual friends.. Friends are sometimes hard to find, so talking with someone on the Internet is so different because they're talking with you and not trying to just be your friend cause of the stuff you have.

    I used to think having "internet friends" was a

    joke. Then I came here and made some good friends. In fact, I don't even refer to them as internet friends. Friends are friends, plain and simple. It is difficult enough to meet and bond with people after a certain age. Given the fact that I'm introverted and don't have much in...
