Hi Naomi,

Online friends are not weird at all! Don't feel bad about making friendships online. What's important is that you are comfortable with what you share and about talking to someone. Usually instincts are good for this, but it's also a good idea to be conscious of what you're saying. You sound very responsible, so I'm not worried, but the main thing to remember online is that everyone is pretty much anonymous.

If you've made good friendships online, then there's no reason to think of them differently than relationships offline

Nat.

i dont think its strange. Sometimes having online friends can make you feel better. You can tell them anything you want, and theres no question of trust, because you can trust them 100%

No. Emotional attachment and connection is not bound to those you can physically see and touch. You can have friendships with anyone whether you've met them in person or not.

To feel the closest to, no. I'm closest to a guy online, it's much easier to talk online to someone far away then someone you know in life.

I'm the same as you. Its really strange, people round here barely know anything about me but people online have a better idea. Doesn't matter where your friends are I guess aslong as you have them


You were the angel of my life, taught me to be free
Now I'm a stranger in your eyes.

It's not weird at all, in my opinion.
People are just cooler and easier to get along with online

Just don't be giving out your address and all that jazz. But I'm assuming that you have common sense. lol

No, I don't think it's weird.

I'm far closer to people online than the friends I have 'face to face', probably because I feel though it's much easier to be myself and to talk to people online. I am much more comfortable talking to people about anything online than I am face-to-face.
