I can personally say i have met some amazing people on COM , people i would call friends .
But are internet relationships/friendships real ?
some people do not believe that it is possible for someone to fall in love online, suggesting they have not felt real chemistry and can't be sure of who the person they're talking to really is. Because of this, people disregard online relationships as not real, or as a fake. , skeptics of the subject are not convinced that dating online can lead to a successful outcome. Many people in online relationships have to endure ridicule and criticism from family, friends and even strangers on the internet itself because it's considered unsuccessful. However, in spite of this, many people who have experienced successful internet relationships feel that it is better for them than first meeting in person. This is due to the fact that, for the most part, you do not see the person first, and instead get to know their personality.
One of the aspects of internet friendship or relationship in general is that online relation gives an opportunity to reveal personal details of one's life that usually people would feel uncomfortable revealing in face-to-face conversations , but it also gives opportunity to become whoever you want to be EG . hi i am sally , 32 4 children and a doctor .
hey presto i am a mum of four and have a medical degree !!
So are internet relationships and friendships real ?
