  • Yes, I've had a few friends I've never met in person, but we go very close online. We still talk occasionally and are on Facebook, 12 years later!

  • yes... but it isnt the same. there is something to be said about face to face interactions.

    Giving a friend a hug when you meet up. Hearing their laugh. Seeing the reaction to the conversation.

    yes.. you can have a good friend on line... but it will never be as emotionally close as a friend sitting next to you.

    and for those who disagree... I wonder how many very close 'real life' friends they have... because the human touch is SO important.

  • I would like to meet some friends online and start hanging out with them, but it seems like a lot of these "mommy" sites only have people who only want to communicate online instead of meeting in person.

  • It happens. I have a friend who made a friend online like 6 years ago and they just met in person a few weeks ago. I don't see why it's not possible!

  • Def. And dating too. I met my ex on a dating site and we were together for 2 and a half years. Hes a wonderful person. We just grew apart.

  • You sure can!!

  • Im sure you can, but personally, i don't choose to.
    You never know who you are talking to, and i have had too much drama in my life to let in just anyone.
    I could become friendly with people, but not to the point i would consider friends..
