I Believe That Internet Friends Are Real

Friendship is real... no matter what means it is spent! 29,887 People

SEND TO A FRIEND:

    Sure they are real, I am real.

    I always try to be real both on and offline. But gathering the fact that there are fakes in real life, there are also fakes in online friendships. Well, not going to talk about those losers though. Not here, not going to talk about them, losers, here. Just here to talk about...

    Just interested in someone decent whom I can

    talk to. Share my interests, talk about movies, favorite shows, music, secrets without judgments. Someone who just enjoys stimulating conversations. I'm in a relationship but I still feel lonely, why I haven't left is another story. I have no friends who are into the same things...

    I believe internet friends are real.

    .sometimes, but they are just as hard to find as physical friends. There are a lot of impersonators and creeps on the Internet so you have to be careful who you communicate with and how much you share with them. I personally like to video chat( non sexually) lol, so I can see the...

    It's a fact actually.

    I've believed this for a long time as I've become close with my little circle but it's become more clear over the past couple days. We've become like a family and it seems like the things that hurt one of us, hurt all of us. Since I've joined EP, I've become close with a group...

    Of course they are real.

    Sometimes people doubt if they are a real person, but does it matter? If your having a fun time talking to that person and they are making you laugh, think, smile, and annoyed sometimes then they are your friend. I don't care if it's a robot, if enjoy talking to them and feel...

    I think they are real.

    After a while, they want things quickly and angrily... as if there was something owed... and it can be scary or sad.

    Frankly they tend to be a washout.

    I make all the effort and really it sucks. I don't expect much but it would be nice if EP friends said hi to me first and asked how I was doing. I am not here for men either wanting a date or sex chat of any kind. I just want to chat with other women from my age upward from...

    Six years ago (or maybe seven) I was playing an

    online game where I met a person from my country. By the time we became online friends. We used to chat and play together all the time. And after five years we've finally met in real life. Guess what? Now we are the best friends. The internet friends exist! :)

    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...

    Internet friends may be better people you see

    all the time in a way. You can talk to really unique people from all over the world it's really nice to hear how different the world is in places. Also you really get to meet people who share you personality or are completely different there are so many options

    They're so much easier to talk to- you're

    rarely afraid to speak your mind. I'm embarrassed of my accent and terrible English-speaking skills, so internet friends are perfect for me!

    They're different type of people from internet

    some are great and some are weird, but that's not the point. I believe that relationship from internet could be real so I'm caring with everyone who I was known....when they've got the one and not feel lonely anymore.....they just disappeared . WHY😑

    Yes real, but really unique at times.

    Those that tend to not have a hard time meeting people seem to tend to find their friends and mates in real life (not online) more often. I have noticed the ones I have met online, can on average have depression... It's okay, but just a different take and demographic to select...
