I Have Had Many E-friends Over the Years...Yet, sometimes I wonder just how real those friendships are.
I have found that interests dwindle. Talk becomes slower and less responsive. Effort wains and contact is lost from attrition, with just the occasional message I send:
"Oh hey, I noticed you were online, how have you been?"
"Hi! I'm doing good, how are you? It's been a while."
"Yeah It has. I'm fine."
*silence and eventually they log off*
