Is This Normal?

I know that I am a good friend and like-able. As far as I know I do not have any enemies. However, I wonder sometimes why it is so much easier to make friends on EP than in the real world. Is it bad that I have more friends here than anywhere else? Am I a social misfit because I do? How much do I know about these so called friends that I pour my heart out to every day? Hmmmm...I'd have to say there are some people on my friends list that I barely know. Ones that I have only talked with a few times. Then there are the ones that I know so much about that you'd swear we'd been friends for years. Those are the ones that I have met in person or really want to make a road trip for. I have a co-worker that is married to a state trooper. He said to me once, "The only friends you need are the ones in your backyard" His opinion of online friends was that it was dangerous to chat and share personal information with total strangers. You never know if they are who they say they are. To a certain degree, I concur. Yet, I have met so many wonderful people here and I feel had I not accidentally found this website one fateful day in November, one year ago....I would not be the person I am now. I have come so far in this journey of self-discovery and its all of you that I have to thank.
