    They're the Best, I Swear

    I have several best friends who I met online and they are the greatest group of friends I could ever ask for. We don't have a lot in common, most of us, but we have enough in common to be able to enjoy talking to each other. We're different people from different parts of the...

    You Had Me At Hello...

    The first time we spoke and you managed to make me laugh, to smile despite what I was going through, I knew I was in trouble! In the short time I have known you, you have constantly kept me smiling, and for that I am grateful. True friends are hard to come by, and great people...

    If you have best friends you have never met

    what happens when you meet someone in real life and fall in love and your partner wishes to meet these friends as this is what normally happens in a relationship - how do you deal with this? I just don't understand how you can have friends that your new partner will never meet...

    A Wonderful Friend

    I have a best friend I've never met, thanks to EP. It is funny how you can feel so close to someone you've never met in "real life." Friendships that blossom online can be totally different.  Maybe it is because you doubt you'll ever met the other person that you...

    He is the nicest, sweetest and most caring guy I know. He gets my humour (or lack there of) and likes my accent/face, which I find unusual. I started talking to him in my first year of uni through a website that will remain nameless.. but anyway. We got talking through there...

    She lives in Australia

    and I live in American and after almost ten years I feel closer to her than I ever have to anyone I've met in person. I don't know if our bond is so visceral and strong because our relationship is removed from a lot of situations that can ruin friendships in real life, or simply...

    I don't no why it is, but in real life everyone I meet is always an ******* or a selfish jerk. The friends I have who are actually cool people and most important care, I have never met. Random sites or chat sites for whatever reasons always as the same sort of people as me. Sure...
