    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...

    My two best friends are on the internet.

    I'm in the UK, Marty is in Norway, and Bibi is in the US. We are all such good friends and we call our friendship MarBibSoph. We've been close for years.

    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...

    Its just that... Its harder to talk to each

    other when you have real-life priorities and especially when you've got opposite time-zones xD But I believe this is really true. :)

    In around last november 2014,

    I met 5 really great friends on Animal Jam. We have stuck around ever since. Not once have they asked for my personal information. Internet friends are WAY better than real life friends(in my opinion).

    for the first time about two weeks ago, how could I not believe Internet friends are real? Let's face it: I had no friends when I was little, until I was 12, that is. When I was 12, I was severely depressed all the time. I couldn't handle school or myself, and due to various...

    I look in the mirror.

    I'm so ugly. I look on the Internet, the people don't see how ugly I am. No, they only get my personality, they see through my unattractive face. Does anyone else feel the same?

    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...

    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...

    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...
