Re: Friendship over the internet
Everyone's definition of what a friend is can be different. For me, at my age, pretty much of all of the friends I had when I was younger have all gotten married and moved on with their lives. Many moving away to other cities and states. I've never been much of a social person, so I would say that I tend to have acquaintances more than friends. The people I interact with are at work, and to a smaller extent people on internet forums like this one. I only visit one other forum, and that is based in my home state, where I actually meet other members and hang out (go fishing) with them.
