Virtual or Online Friends
Ever since I was introduced to computers, I have known different people from around the world. Come to think of it. If I count my number of friends online and friends in the real world. The number of online friends is catching up fast.
Many are using the Internet all over the world. Not only are they using it for finding information,they are also using the Internet as a way to meet new people and to make new friends. The Internet allows people from all over the world to talk about their lives and to form new relationships with each other through social networking sites, blogs, forums and more.
Virtual friends can serve many different purposes in your life. One is treat your online/virtual friend as merely a friend, while some see them as a love interest and even of you have boyfriends or girlfriends online (usually popular in the States, but also increasing here in the Philippines).
Though some get lucky meeting that special someone online but it is rare and usually the it is not lasting. It is best to prefer people you actualy meet and talk in person as there is a huge difference in just sitting imagining someone you havent met. So becareful when meeting people online and always consider security and safety for both online users.
