    Anyone ever have an online relationship?

    Just wondering how this works. My friend emails me first thing in the am and he always finishes the evening by saying goodnight. He texts throughout the day to share his day with me. I like being a part of his day... To me, this is not a deep relationship because I feel that...

    Ep Friend

    Here is a place to walk out on thin ice and to connect with people you wouldn't normally have a chance to in your day to day life. To exchance ideas and compare lives and emotional debris. To know that the stations in life are blurred here and you can talk to anyone and find out...

    Happy to Have

    Since coming to EP I have made some great on-line friends.  I am happy to have them, they make laugh when I am sad, they also make me laugh just because.  They give me caring advice, or just a hug or smile when the situation fits.  It's nice to have friends who...

    My Friends

    I have a wonderful group of friends online. They fill the gap that I am missing. They are there when I need an extra ear  or a shoulder to cry on. Some days I could not not make it without them.

    Online friends and friends aren't the same.
