Yes! Why not? But i think an internet friendship only works of you call the person and talk on the phone. It's not a true friendship of you never heard their voice
You are a seal? I knew it. I am a an ape at the Bronx zoo, New York
Yes, why not Are you not my friend Yuki... “Yuki” is a seal at the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan in Japan. Is it true?
Thank you Yuki...
Have an opinion?
Some can be really good friends, others not really. It all depends on how much you have in common & if you share the same morals.
Yea, I really only have online friends. I go to an online virtual school, and have no siblings to pressure me to make friends physically ( which also kinda makes me Wayyyy less social ).. Tho, I talk to people my age sometimes without being awkward, and I do go to teen-only church groups at times... But tbh, for basically just having all online/internet friends for many years. I'm still friends so many after many years, and they're so friendly towards me, and the conversations are awesome... So Yes, I feel that having virtual or internet friends can be just as exciting as having them in real life. Plus, you don't have to get ready or dressed physically when your talking/texting/ playing online video games with them. They're still people, whether interacting physically or OTA
Yes you can but you will have to enforce yiu r boundaries a lot more than when your with a person in front of you. I have penpal friends I have never met for years, from Japan and other countries. Sadly, like everything else in life, you can never really know who is your true friend until they have proven themselves to be loyal and respectful. You're not be friends with everybody. And that everybody will last long in any kind of relationship.
Absolutely! I have a friend I met back in 2009 when Yahoo had chatrooms. We went from talking on messenger, to emails, to now texting each other regularly, exchanging gifts for bdays and Christmas, and just talking! Never met in person, but we talk about everything... like real friends
I don't know. More like acquantaince, not friends. Someone is a friend to me if I've known them for years, we have been to each others' house, our families know about our friendship, we invite each other to celebrate life events and sometimes just hangout to catch up or go shopping. I only use the term friend to describe someone I know in real life.
I have a friend I met when I was 14 in a game I used to play online and throughout the years we maintained our friendship and to this day we still speak and I saw her this year after 11 years of knowing her and it wasn’t weird or anything. We were genuinely friends. I even stayed at her house while she went to work with her sister and nephews. Relationships and friendships will flourish if they are taken care of, regardless of their circumstances.
Yes, my guy best friend is from the internet ( more specifically from a game on pc ) and what's more lucky is when we 1st talked, we had no idea we live close to each other xdFunny coincidence and now we're the best friends ever
I think on a site like this it could take a year to develop a true sense of comradery, because you are not speaking to each other physically. But I have managed to improve my communication skills while using this website, and I do feel fondly for many users.
I highly doubt it.In my experience, most people online don't care about you.. Even if you've been chatting/exchanging messages with someone for several months, suddenly one day they might disappear without even saying goodbye... (unless you've been skyping with them or met them in real life, at least once but that's extremely rare)The Internet is impersonal, so people here can't really relate to each other. They just narrate and talk about their stories and experiences
My best friend- I met online around 10 years ago, and we still talk everyday and meet every now and then (probs 2 times a year, we live in different countries, a 2h flight away) and she's met many of my rl friends
I have a lady friend who met her husband playing World of Warcraft. So it does happen. But generally people are not as they appear online. So it's rare.Ever watch the movie/documentary "Catfish" ?This is a good example.
Yes! I have a friend of 5 years. We never met cuz we live in two different states and I can't afford to travel rn but I can tell you she knows more about me than all of my friends near me and she understands me better as well :)
Sure.I've met people that I have genuinely became friends with through the internet. It's just another way of connecting with people, just be careful in the same way you would in real life and you'll be fine.
Why wouldn’t it be? Of course it’s not the same thing as friends you know irl because that involves many more emotions but, still, friendship is friendship! Plus, there’s always the opportunity to meet the person after a while!
Friends to the Ends, Lovers, Have a Relationship... Even Marry.Sure... We all Human Here, dear. xx
I’ve had a couple of internet friends. Mostly with girls because the boys usually tend to want something else. if ya know what I mean 😐
No they cannot be. Internet friends cannot really be trusted.
I don't know I never tried to have one🤷♂️, I think it is possible, but not the regular kind of way
I made friends with some people in the early 2000s, I’m still friends with them, not all of them, we all met on a musician fan website.
Of course if they are there for you when you’re happy or sad.But it’s always better to meet them IRL.
I've known my internet friends for years and I can honestly say that I care for them a lot, they're good people.
its gonna take more than that for meLike we gotta meet up
No. There's this weird obsession going on with strangers. LOL.. You don't know these people from nowhere.
Yes they can. I have a few people I met on GaG, think of them as my friend and even admire them for what they have accomplished in life
Half of all my true friends were made online. One was made on this site.
Yes they can be, I made one here four years ago and still close
Yes i would be a true friend to anyone i meet online.
Yes you can make friends online. Be careful though just like IRL there are people that are creeps.
Sure they can but sometimes you are talking to a catfish and you can't
Friends are friends and the internet is just another way of connecting
I don't think it could ever be like a friendship that is in real life.
Yes I believe they can be. I have better internet friends then I have in person
I voted yes sometimes it's hard to pick the true ones out
No, only lovers
I find internet friends to be toxic lol
Sure especially if you meet in person.
Yes but it takes more than just online.
I think if you have same country or state
Yes especially after we meet.
I thought we were friends
Not really unless they actually meet each other
Yes they absolutely can
Perhaps if you do things in person they can
Yes, if they truly want to become friends.
Yeah, We Can be good friends!!
Yes it's possible
It's almost impossible thing.
No I don't think so.
Sure i guess
Yes and no.
Vote C - I suppose
