Online Friends

First, I'd just like to apologize for not posting in so long. I've been having some problems in my personal life, and I had to put some things on the back burner, and Stardoll was one of those things. I'll try to post more often.

The internet is a great thing, for most part. Sure, it has its dark points, but it also has some wonderful features. One of my favorite things about the internet in general is its ability to allow us to communicate with people all over the world. You can meet people you never would have met otherwise and form really close friendships. Some people would rather have real life friends and some would rather their friends be online. It's a part of being human - everyone's different.

It doesn't matter to me if I can see a friend and talk to them face-to-face or not. In some ways, it's preferable than having to face someone when you can see their facial expressions and it's easier to remember that they're judging you every second. Of course, it seems so much less personal to me when I'm typing words into a computer than it seems when I'm actually talking to someone. The friendship is still there, though. Nothing really changes; you still have the same sense of companionship and trust that you'd want in any friend.

So, do you think it matters whether or not a friend is in real life or just online?


  1. I have alot online friends.. but i dont forget about real life friends too. I dont really know if its easier for me with online friends or real life..

  2. I think it's the same and I totally agree with what you said.

    I have a few friends on Stardolls and I've never met non of them in real life. I don't mind though because I feel grateful to only get to know them. They're all so wonderful and we talk daily with most of them. We've even reached the point of talking about the weather conditions because we know each other so well we have nothing to add about ourselves.

    For me it's easier to write. Even if I belong in a big company(5 friends we are) I cannot express all my feelings and thoughts while talking. But when I write, I magically become a talkative/social person! And that's why I love my online friends, which are all from Stardoll :p

  3. The same as _StarHelen_ for me :D

    I have loads of online friends who I'd actually really consider as best friends now (I've known them and been close with them for about 2+ years now) and we know pretty much everything about each other - except the REALLY personal details like address xD - so sometimes I actually prefer them to my real life friends.

  4. i can't visit today top trends blog? is it closed? thank's

  5. I haven't really got any online-only friends, so I don't really know. However, if you're smart and careful, I think it could be a great thing to do.

  6. It's not the same. I appreciate online friends, but that is no way substitution for my real life friends.


Nice to see you back! Oh wait. .. .who are you again?
