      So, many have no problem with this and some people do. What are your thoughts about having online friends? People who you are friends with but only online?

      I have a few online friends that I keep in close contact with and I am always making new friends with being on forums and such and I have no problem with it but I know so many that think it's weird.

      Do you ever add your online friends to your social networking sites that you are registered on who do you just keep things simple?

      I have some E-buddies on Facebook. I did lose 2 of them because once I got to know them better, they were really terrible people, but for the most part I've had good experiences with the rest of them.

      I am the complete opposite :) I tend to get on better with males however I do have both male and female friends both on and offline. I find that I get on better with people online though.

      I'm like you Nikki. I have plenty of offline and online friends and I don't see a problem with it to be honest. I've known some people for the better part of 10 years now and we're still good friends to this day. I see them as normal everyday friends to be honest and don't see anything wrong with being friends with people you've met online. :) Hell if you weren't going to have any online friends or the intention of meeting new people online, why go on forums in the first place? :D

      That is true, or even gaming, what would be the point in that if you had no intention of being friends with people you meet? It's a shame though that not many people have the same way of thinking that we do to be honest.

      ive got lots of online friends, and yes somtimes i would be lost without them, and yes if they want my facebook, they can have it, a lot of members off the inn are already on it
      i dont think its weird, yrs ago we had pen friends that we used to worry about if we didnt hear from them

      That is true :) I didn't think of that to be honest with you, with the pen pals. I remember having one when I was younger well more of an email pal to be honest that my dad got me emailing to once when we first got our PC and I have quite a few friends some whom are in the US who I wouldn't be without :)
