I Believe That Internet Friends Are Real

Friendship is real... no matter what means it is spent! 22,593 People

    I know I won't have time to do this tomorrow,

    so I just want to wish all my circle friends , both old and new a happy Christmas. Also to all those who are not in my circle, but who regularly drop by for a chat. As some of you know , my time here on EP precedes the date shown in my profile. It has been a time of highs and...

    I started with two internet best friends.

    I've known them since November 2012 and January 2013 at some points they were my only friends.... We Skype and snapchat so I knew they were real, and we are still friends to this very day?! (I forget the app name) Around June 2013 I discovered the Experience project.... I've...

    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 do believe you can have true friends.

    I think you are less inhibited online . As such you open yourself up to being accepted as you are. When accepted and understood, this is what friendship is

    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.

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    Shortly after I left my marriage of 13 years.

    I was looking for someone to talk too out of loneliness. So I joined a dating site. I received a message that caught my attention as it was so unlike the typical pick up lines. (Ladies you'll know what I mean....lol) He asked me how it felt like to be in a meat market. Then...

    I honestly feel more comfortable spilling my

    heart out to a stranger rather than my family in real life. It seems like the internet friends I have made care more about me than the friends I have in real life. I really appreciate my online friends, and I'll be here when they need me.
