Friends...what does that mean to you? In real life we have traditional friends we see, know and hang out with. Then there's the work-friends who we are friendly with but do not hang out with. Then there are acquaintances...people we know but really never hang out...they are like our friend's friends.

What about internet friends? Some here have met in person and have become traditional friends. But what do you call people we see everyday? People we care about, pray for, say happy birthday to? We never get together in person, and there are alot of people, not necessarily here but on other sites who are phonies and frauds. We kind of know each other, but we really don't.

So how would you catagorize CS "friends"?hug

CS friends are just as important as r.l. friends. They are all here with us, sharing-maybe more than we share with our r.l. friends when it comes down to it. I value my CS friends highly, and don't know what I would do without themwine

I'm making such wonderful friends here. I was having such a hard day, emotionally today.So I got on here to have my friends and the forums lift my spirits. I'm notmy usual self yet, but I'm certainly in better shape than I was.

I haven't been on here long, but I'm really starting to care about these people as if I did know you all face to face.

Thank you. I needed you all today.

Dana

That's a good question, MB. I'm surprised by how much I like some of the people here. There is a reality to this experience, but it's hard to dispute that a lot of fantasy and misinformation are part of it. Regardless, I do find myself - a more or less lone wolf type of a guy - caring about the friends I've made here.

i think the same of my RL friends as i do everyone here. I dont see much if any difference. I looked forwarded to talking with ppl here, just like going out with my friends on the weekends. I enjoy the laughs i share with my cs friends and i have been known to cry with others when they have hard issues in their lives. To beable to come to a place like this and share hugs, laughter, love, sorrow with ppl i care about is an awesome feeling. hug hug hug

I have met many great people here and am lucky enough to call some friends.I have met some face to face and look forward to meeting others as the chances arrive.
Wether in person or online, a friend is someone who respects you,understands you,shares with you and cares about you.That's all that matters in the end.

I really haven't had that chance to get to know very many on here, but the one I have got to know I have become close to and found them all to be special people. NO disappointments yet....hug

There are some great people here - some that I uncategorically consider friends, and that I one day have to meet.

I don't know too many people here in So Cal, either because I am not the most gregarious person in the world or they are too good for me, but friends on this site got me through some pretty rough times.

I am definitely going to meet some of them. Two of my closest friends here its already planned i can say. There are more people i have been getting to know and have grown fond of. I would look forward to meeting them if they wish the same.

CS friends .. haha thats on my messenger too !!

If i take someone seriously , i treat them like RL friends.. hmm.. i am real even in here so no diff. actually. But i am choosy !!

I think CS has the advantage over real life on one level. You can go around to a friends house and hang out. But you see the periperals running around that persons house. Phone ringing, Kids Maybe, Meal preparations possibly, other visitors.

At times you can feel like a real intruder though your possibly very welcome to be there. On CS those peripherals are totally removed. You can drop in and out of conversations with ease. And when someone is online who you really want to talk to contact is easy with no travel problems, Drinking problems or what to wear.

There r sum very wonderful people here. A couple i haven't really interacted with whom i think could be very interesting. I am only limited by me.

When you talk to your online friends, since they have to read you written word to know what you said, they don't tune you out. We don't sit and question and answer when we are in person, but we do that all the time online. I have friends in both worlds,but some of the people that I have met online are the ones that know the most about me and always the ones I turn to when I really need to talk. I have talked to some of them online for around 10yrs. We have met in person and still talk online. One lady friend and I have met here for coffee for years. We just don't make that time in RL plus the miles are not issue here. A true believer in online. hug
