    that I have never met. Best friends* each message from them reminds me that I am not alone, but it hurts when all I need is a hug and no one is here... It is like you are drowning and you can see everyone around you breathing and they cant see you, but this voice in your head is...

    Well That's a Funny Thing...

    On the topic of friends. I guess i have never really had the friends I want. And when it comes down to it, I can blame any reason but the truth is just to blame myself and to move on, I feel. In time perhaps I will solve this. Reality of the situation is, I find life...

    I Wanna Hold Your Hand!

    I've not yet met my best friend.  At least not face to face in the physical sense.  But, we know each other's deepest thoughts and dreams, and we truly share in each other's emotions, proving once again that distance is irrelevant when it comes to true friendship...

    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...
