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?
