I Have Online Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,692 People

    Gotta love those unconditional friends

    who are always there,despite being in the other side of the world. They stay, do not change and even when it has been a long time no see, you come back... And it feels like coming back to home.

    It's easier to make online friends

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

    Two electronic screens,

    maybe even more. Keeping you connected with them, at any time. They will talk to you for a reason, and most likely see your personality first rather than your physical appearance. They enjoy talking to you, and you don't want to let that go...

    I tend to make friends online

    since I'm shy in reality and I get nervous. I feel awkward at first but I love it when people message me and we have things in common ^_^ like I'll role play cuddle and stuff like that with them after awhile.

    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.
