Close friends vs cyber pals or cyber buddies

I have chatted with many people on this site. I have also contributed to the magazine and the groups.

I noticed that some people use the term 'close friend' to describe their relationship with fellow chatters or people who contribute to the same groups as them.

These people who I am talking about have never met in real time. Some of them live on different continents.

I wish these people would give their heads a shake and get a grip.

You are just CYBER PALS. That is all.

Even if you do meet in real time, that does not make you a CLOSE FRIEND.

A CLOSE FRIEND is somebody who would be there when the times are good or bad and also would be a person who you can trust.

A CYBER BUDDY cannot do that.

steve you make a very good point here, cyber friends are just that, but you can become close thru this cryber world I have made many *cyber friends* we it started out thru the groups then we chated thru IM next it was the phone, then the ones that live close we have gone out, movies, dinner and clubing. I vaule my friends that I have met through here and we are close beacuse we talk at least 3 times a week and share in each others life and whats going on, happyness, sickness, sadness...ect....

I guess it just depends on how you use a cyber site and what you choose to gain from it. My cyber *pals* are *there* for me and viseversa....

Yes. So true. I reserve the word "friend" for a special few. I'm trying to be a friend a friend would like to have, to quote the country song. BTW thanks for the public nod in LoveSpell11's post.
