    E-friends vs Real Life friends?

    Do you hold your E-friends on the same bar as you do real life friends?
    I know people who believe that E-friends are basically the same as real life friends but only don't live near you and haven't seen you.
    I personally think it depends on how long I've known the person, I've known one guy on xbox for 2 years and we trust each other with everything, he's basically one of my best friends internet and real life wise.

    And yes, I have plenty of real life friends.
    Your thoughts?

    No, you can only experience so much through the internet.

    Yea I guess you're right.
    I don't have too many E-friends but the ones that I do I consider them equals to some of my friends.

    some earn my trust over time, but if I actually knew them in person, they would get my trust quicker

    The internet really voids a lot of the emotional communication imho.



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    I prefer irl friends over e-friends.

    I barely have any faithful e-friends assuming most of the people I meet are jerks. Not talking about anyone particularly, obviously.

    I'll be honest with this. I've said more about myself to an e-friend than someone I know in real life

    Cause it matters less to them knowing that you will probably never meet

    Not really. It's the fact that they actually listened unlike most people. In fact one of them is on here

    There are VERY few people on the internet I'd share things with.
    There is probably one of the many people on the internet I've met that I could trust.
    For all I know the rest of them could be greasy 50 year old weighing 500 pound pedophiles.

    It also depends on where you meet them

    Ask me ANY question and I'll give you the answer over the internet.

    IRL I probably wont even answer any of your casual questions properly (I am a really shy person irl)
