Definitely Real, And Wonderful Friends!

I definitely believe my internet friends are "real" friends. The conversations I have via email and forums are as pleasant, entertaining, informative and sometimes irritating as those carried on in person. Many friends I have made over the years online I count as treasured friends -- people who share common interests with me that my local friends don't.

We meet day after day, night after night. We have laughed and even cried with each other, shared our joys and our dreams. We support one another in bad times and rejoice with one another in good times. When we do not see someone for a few days, we worry. If they take a trip we miss them. There are even times we give and take advice from one another. We share a bond that many can not understand. They wonder how this close friendship could form between people who have never met, never talked on the phone and in most cases never will. How can this be real, a true friendship, a true caring one for the other. It is real because... Words have no right or wrong color. Words have no right or wrong religion. Words do not live in the right or wrong part of town. Words do not have the right or wrong job. Words do not have the right or wrong amount of material things. What words do have is a part of ourselves, part of our heart, part of our soul. The good and the bad, the honesty and the lies. The real and the fake But no one can hide behind the words they type for long, because the truth does come out. We do see inside another after awhile. So you see it is real. Because we judge on what is inside, what is unseen. What makes a person who they are, we judge not with our eyes... But with our hearts.

You said it perfectly ...Thank you :)

wow... that was absolutely perfect. i couldn't have said it better myself. i try to explain this to my girlfriend and she simply doesn't get it. perhaps i will show her this. i have a few online friends and when i can't get to the computer to talk to them for a while, it bothers me.<br />
