    Yup. I'm so lucky to have ones.

    I had a friend I talked to everyday

    for months but we wanted dl different things yet like each other's company, we stopped talking my choice and it's a lot harder than I thought it would be. It's funny, the Internet.

    It's easier to make online friends

    rather than real life ones, especially if you're an introvert like myself.

    I have this friend I met on an online website

    and one day he decided he wouldn't go on the website anymore, but he came on here and there and he still seemed his normal self then. I deleted my account a while ago because I got bored of it but I came back a couple of months later and made a new account and added him in case...

    Yes I Have

    It doesn't matter how I met my friends like in school or business or bars or internet, friends are friends. I don't really have a lot of friends on the net because I'm not comfortable just saying hi each other. So these friends I have are more than diplomatic and I open up...

    I broke a dear online friendship in April,

    and I still haven't gotten over it. He honestly meant the world to me during a time when I felt so lonely, and now I find myself thinking about all those wonderful memories again. I can't move on. I don't know what to do.

    I have made 2 very good friends

    and I can easily say I am going to miss talking to one of them!! He is busy right now but he is so interesting. I can be patient hopefully it's not one of my best characteristics.

    Two electronic screens,

    I don't see any difference to them being online,

    or face to face, apart from the obvious, you can't hug them when they feel down, and they can't drop round for a coffee ☺, but if I spend enough time "talking" with them I do start to care about them the same way that I would for a face to face friend...and I think that is...

    Only problem is when find a person then bam they go cold. You put all your effort into your online friendship then they leave. I say to myself what f-ck did I do. Any one else experience this?

    People often say that online friends are

    "jokes" That it won't last. But I like my online friends 10x more than the people here. The thing with online friends, is they choose to talk to you, to help you, to support you. They can leave, but they don't.
