I Believe That Internet Friends Are Real

Friendship is real... no matter what means it is spent! 24,148 People

    I know that many people out there dismiss

    anyone on the internet and say that you never know who is really behind the computer because they can pretend to be anyone. That's true, however, there is still a person behind each computer with free will, and not all of them choose to be an internet racist, psycho, pervert, or...

    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 met my boyfriend on the internet

    and we just had our 6 month yesterday and my friends told me it didn't count since I don't "know" him. He knows me more than they do and me with him and what I have with him is real, but it's really depressing when my friends tell me it doesn't matter

    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 can be shy sometimes,

    but when it comes to people online I not. I do not share my name or all my person stuff, but I like to try to make friends. People can be really fun online and that helps me when I in a bad mood. I do not care if they are mean, I can just log off. But when a person is nice or...

    When people are honest

    as to who they are a stronger friendship can happen. I've been lucky to find my best friend & husband online. Yes, there are liars as well, but they get discovered sooner or later.

    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...

    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...

    One thing which really does annoy me is

    Disposable It's funny how you can mean the

    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...

    but I don't believe in starting a relationship online. one thing is sharing ideas with a person online and it's something else to get emotionally involved. maybe it all boils down to what we want from a relationship; but considering my criteria for one, I will more easily...

    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...

    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.
