I have a couple of local friends who are great. I can tell them anything and listen to anything they need to air. I am not afraid to approach any subjects with them. I know we always have each others backs. How can that compete with a cyber friend that you've probably never met. Being able to see, touch and hear a friend has got to be MUCH better than typing an email to a "friend"! Let's get back to the basics and KNOW who the person is that we've become friends with. I agree that computers and other technology are removing the humanness in a lot of people.

My local friends are awesome. Totally trustworthy and I don't have a clue who my cyber friends are really in real life. They might be some bony guy eating KFC in Utah who knows.

How do you know if cyber friends are real as opposed to fake? You can be anybody you want on the internet but in real life you can only be what you are. Maybe that's why so many people like cyber relationships. Is my age showing???

To me, the people you meet online may say anything to make you happy, but true friends who will support you are the ones with whom you've formed a trusting relationship over a period of time, and proved it!

Ya'll are just getting closer to a complete disconnect with real humans. Why is it we can be trusting and intimate from afar...but scared when you meet face to face ?
Cell phones, texting, e-mail, all put distance between us. We should be meeting in the middle of the street to say Hi to our neighbors.

real friends are harder to get rid of.

I meant - harder to avoid... not get rid of.

I am not talking about any one in particular but I do think online friends could be more reliable. It seems a lot of times that people only want to talk to you when they need something. I'm not for that. It is hard to find good friends that will always be there.

In my honest opinion I've found the people I've met online tend to be very reliable (a majority, there are some bad apples) and supportive.
