Yes, they are... until they are not...
they are as real to me as anyone in person, some more so
some of them are friends IRL too
in real life
some i have met thru here as well
I do want to, not sure what everyone of them think about me.
Yep. That's because I am "Forever Alone" XD.
some of them, yeah. Some I might just consider aquaintances.
Yes some of them have really helped me deal with some tough situations.
Yes, a few of them really are and I have met one 'in the flesh'
may be you can trust this friend more than real friend, i think
