I started doing this myself. When I realized a lot of people were just forgetting me or just using me.. I started speaking with people online. I have a few really good friendships with people online. We talk almost every day too. It is nice. We both share what is going on and give each other advice. Two of them are friends with each other too so we sometimes do group chats.

Do you have more online friends than offline ones?

I have one friend and a cousin I hang out with, though I barely see that friend now.

Online I just have acquaintances, I had too many bad experiences getting close to internet folk in the past.

I mostly keep the online peeps at a distance days.

I do, yes. We meet up in RL but we mostly communicate online because we either don't live in the same city/country or we have different schedules. I don't have many friends that I've met online and kept it only online, though.

^It is very sad to hear that, Fountain.
Of course no one deserves bad experiences online, but someone as kind as you deserves that the least !



I don't have any friends in real life - and haven't for a long time now - so yes, the only online friend I have is more than I have in real life, lol.
Having a fear of getting close to people doesn't help the situation.

I have no friends in real life. Somehow, I seem to be better communicating with people online, probably because I don't have as much trouble putting my thoughts into words. I have terrible communication skills when I'm actually talking to somebody one on one (or in a group). I've also noticed that when you're on a forum/site that you and everyone else can relate to, you're more able to share your feelings with that person.

Yes, definitely. I am much more comfortable in print than in person (I'm a writer/editor for a living). A lot of my online friends are people I met back in college or in a class/performance and who I "talk" to much more now than I did then.
