Friends in my real world...

I'm chatting with my buddy, Stacy, and she says to me "funny that my true friends dont even exist in my real world, lol ".  And that got me to thinking I wonder how many of us here have more net friends than real-life friends?  I know I do. 

 

I have one really good female friend here, and two good male friends (only friends).  I have many, many more friends here in netland.  I have several net friends I consider family (not that any of you are less great to me.. I say this in the context of I talk to them a lot).  Stacy   is in Oregon, Nikki    in Australia, and Douglas   lives in Nigeria.  He's working on getting into college here (he's 20).  There is also Salih (no picture of him) from Jordan, though he was born in Kuwait then moved to Iraq.  Maher abughali who lives in Austria, but is from Gaza, in the West Bank.   

So, I do seem to have more online friends than friends that live close by.  How about you guys?

Til next time......

I have been friends with a girl since we were 11 years old, she lives 20 minutes away, and I see her maybe 5 times a year, i dont know why, but its been like this since high school ended.  we are so busy, its just easier to talkon the phone rather than pack up 6 kids and meet somewhere.... I will be seeing her tomorrow for the first time in 9 months!!!  only 20 minutes away, how sad.....

hee hee Nae and I were talking and laughing about how you, me, and her talk more in one day than we do our hubby's or our other family!!!!!  I do have friends that live 3 hours away and we never seem to see eachother.  I talk to you several times a day and when you aren't on to chat I miss you.  Funny how my true friends dont exist in my real world!!!!!! How sad!

Wishing you lived closer.....  (((( Cat ))))

This is my first time visiting your journal.  What a cool question~
I think I'm pretty even on both sides.. the friends I have, I have had for years.. online and off.  

I love your journal!  Will be back to read more!

Interesting question!  I have about three or four non-internet close friends.  I have a great number more internet friends of varying degrees.  The internet friendships are growing stronger.  I believe they are also very honest as there is nothing to hide over the internet.  Yes, a very interesting question!

This is a great entry. I think about this all the time. I have no friends but the ones online. *insert sad face* I would like to have real friends but have found it hard since I have just moved here. Maybe that will change. I have ppl. that I talk to but nothing that I would consider a friend. Anywho, Love this entry.
