  • Yep, more computer friends than IRL. Seems Facebook is my only link to my family right now and since I'm on the other side of the world, when I'm awake, they are usually asleep, so it's hit or miss. Friends where I live...I don't know if I could call them friends. We don't really talk, everyone has their own lives so I have to make due on my own. But if I need to chat with them too...there's Facebook lol.

  • Same here. For some reason i always had a hard time with real life friends but then again im super shy.

  • Yep! Although, I'm home most of the time which is probably why that is for me.

  • thanks, its good to know that other people are in the same boat. I am also shy, but yet I long for close friendships, I see other people go to lunches and movies with their moms, sisters, best friends or whatever and I am super jealous...but, my shyness keeps me from making close friends

  • I have more real life friends but they are so far away and with lives of their own. I have many online friends who are more easily available when I need them

  • I have about 5 real true friends and they all live in different states, I have mmade several friends on CM and found alot of support as well. I dont think its the numbers that count I would take only one true friend than 7 frends that may stab me in the back if I didnt watch them well.
