meeting the person has nothing to do with it. If you get along and enjoy their company then they are a friend
it's what I do
So how can I get you to add me so I can see your other stuff here?
You don't have to have met someone to call them a friend. Your dad clearly does not know what he's talking about. If you communicate with people on a regular basis, that is more than enough to form a friendship.
I can guarantee u that with all of the 'friends' we make on here (yes we have common interests or for some other reason decided to become 'friends') if this were real life we would maybe choose to actually hang out with just a couple of them. So for these kinds of things, yup, were all friends. In the real world a good friend is truely hard to find. So have at it......go make some friends! You are ours already. :)
ehh don't take it too seriously. Bring a friend over and tell him "hey dad a real friend!"
Seems Chrystal Clear.
