Ok you people voted and you WON!
I lost.

Have a good time guys.
BYE
and sorry for all of you !

I know that you guys have online friends.
i just want to know How many people are so obsessed with it.

OK you won I lost.

Have fun people.
and UNKNOWN people.

but for me a friendship is always

-A fantasy
-A dream
-An illusion.
giving me confusion. 



HAVE fun for upcoming events..

X-mass
New year
all festivals
weekends

all above days are hell for me !! LOL
I am planning to work on Saturdays , Sundays
all festival days to avoid this hell for me.

ever since I was a kid.
I never enjoyed like you guys ??  [:-'(] ???
I never had a friend.
I don't even know my relatives.



(A survey)

What is your experience ?

Why people are getting worried about each other in forums ?
SOME fools even post, stuff like
"Where is this person ?"
"What happened to Him/her ?"
"Why he/she is not online for these many days ?"


Guys don't you realize ?
Real life it self is filled with big cheaters.
why do people worry about the people those who are offline ?



It is really impossible to realize that some people get attracted to something called online.

nothing is real in online.
Nothing is true in online.

to whom I need to trust ?

to whom we need to trust ?

Some try to make friendship with everyone.
some try to be good.some will fake it all out.
some make us feel that someone is out there for us (who knows that person could be a spammer ?)

People are addicted to

Messengers
chats
RIC
other stuff..

SOME EVEN GET married to other chatter and RUINED their life.
SOME steal personal details.
some wast their life who have missed beauties of Nature.
beauty of life.

Kids these days LOL.
cell phones and SMS LOL

I admit that some are good.
some really make things look in such a way that they are like family members ?

I disagree entirely.  The web can be a great place to meet people.  There are several people on this site who I now consider to be my friends, even though I have never met them, and may never get the chance to meet them in real life.

I strongly disagree also. I have met many close friends online, one who I have ended up meeting in person and having a great time with. Even those I have not met, I know them better than most people I've met offline, through speaking to them almost daily for nearly 10 years. And I would miss them if they weren't on the other end of the line anymore, just as I would miss a friend I am used to seeing offline.

I've also highly enjoyed participating in various multiplayer gaming clans, where you really get into the team spirit of it, keenly devising strategies together prior to a clan war, coordinating/chatting using voip in-game, and that feeling of team glory when you win a match is all quite rewarding.

How is where they met relevant?

The internet is the greatest tool we've ever had for communication, why not use it to meet people you would ordinarily never have had the priviledge of meeting?

It's not the programs themselves that they are addicted to, it's the human interaction, which many people are addicted to regardless of the internet.

SBC Are you typing the words into your laptop or PC straight from your head, or do you have a robot posting questions for you.. I think not.. Are you real SBC or not.. only you know eh?

So I think that establishes you as real if the conclusion you come to is that you are real.. LOl So it also confirms that I can attest to being real by taking a picture of me now holding a sign saying Hi SBC.. I am REAL, LOL..

It is a mistake on peoples parts that come to the internet with a attitude that the people behind the net posters like you and I are not real simply because we cannot see them....So does that mean that a star in the atmosphere that has been seen with a scope but can't be seen with the naked eye does not exist because you cannot see it with your eye...think of the net as a telescope.. to see people far away meet wonderful friends and learn about other cultures etc etc...

People behind the screens have feeings too and I think we have all been guilty one time or another for treating someone inapproprieately on the net simply because we can just turn off our cp or not answer the message or ignore it.. This however would not generally happen if we had to look a person in the eye.. it makes it really easy to pretend that it was a net thing..

People meet and fall in love and get married who met on line.. I know several couples who have met like that and have been married now on 25 years and such.. its common. I agree with ben you really get to know a person well and when meeting it really adds to the whole picture that love for people friends and sweeties is ceryainly ore then skin deep.. Most of my attractions to a man for example have nothing at all to do with looks I have fallen in love without even a glance at a person...But I say this because I know it to be true in my life here at home also.. I speak with people and go back for more conversation and am drawn to them by their intellect looks are a bonus later down the road but they are not necessary for me...If I loved someone They could look like a rock for all i care or have two heads and 15 toes per foot and I would still love the person I fell in love with.. physical affection is very impotant but mostly its how we feel about that person how they click with us and support us and us them.. there are many things in an internet situation you don't get in a face to face one.. sometimes for people its easier to have a friensd on line as  I have ton because cercumstances in my life made it hard for me to get out anymore so my social life sometimes suck but My life here is wonderful and it makes me feel better about my self and people in general.. I love people and have asked myself are these people real... and the answer is a resounding yes... Beaver is a fine example of that internet friendship.. Having only known him since I came to he forum some years ago.. I loved that man as a friens and he was there for me as a friend depite my nerotic behavior at times when my life was all upside dowm and he offered his ear and support and I took it.. I hope that when he wrote me and needed the support that I was able to have been as supportive as he had been .. I have grievd a lot at his loss he was a friend which I have very few in my life so I honor that.. I have many friends in this forum some I probably pissed off at some time or another not intentionally but none the less I did.. And I would be a liar to say tht if I lost any of them in my life it would not effect me dramatically because it would break my heart and kill me to loose any of them...
Over the past weeks I have had the pleasure of talking with you and seeing your enthusiasm towards science but am baffled by the fact you think you have no friends.. I felt as if we were getting to be friends.. You have the ability to make friends and you have but for some reason you do not recognize friendship when you are standing in the middle of it..:) I hope you know that about your self.. we all do dumb things sometimes say things we do not mean to our loved ones at home and through the net.. Poor Stuart almost got his head snapped off a week or two ago as I was not feeling good and was depressed and in that woe is me mode..LOL I had to make apologies about a comment I made to him.. and I would have expected to be kicked up the backside for the comment should he have ben standing here..LOL...

Its easy to learn about onesself when loney you realize how vulnerable you are but also how strong you are despite what life and yourself decides to put on your plate...


My Best friends and loved ones are here on the net and I plan on not leaving this planet untill I have met as many of them as possible...

I hope you make many more friends on line just remember there is a person behind the computers... There are ways to tell if someone is real or not use your head.. don't be so down about social friendships..have fun....

See I just went off as per my normal mouth overflow and members will be going oh gawwwwd shs rambling again,,,,.... shrink shrink shrink!!! LOL... Sorry guys...!

it's Impossible studies found that humans miss those who physically met and those to whom you

Speak
smile
hear
see them physically.
by touch for social interactions. 
your thoughts match.

when all this things happen your brain feels happy.
When you miss friends...

I think dopamine or endorphin will not release when a friend or family member dies or not met a friend for long time.

Some people take cocaine to release.

But How it is possible in online ?

I don't involve my self into this alcoholic social friendship.
But I always observe people. I always study people.

Online friends or social relations in online  Vs. Online friendships ?

People who are blind never see anyone's face, yet it does not stop them from making friends.

How do you find out the background of someone in person? By talking to them. Why can't the same be done online?

Cos they will give you fake information.
A blind person my not make online friends.
cos he/she can't chat online.
A blind person is not as much as fool as people involve themselves in online.

A lot of people find love on the Internet, get married and have kids, it removes the uncomfortable embarrassing introductions and people feel comfortable asking all sorts of personal questions they would never dream of asking someone to their face.

The Internet is to everyone whatever they want it to be. Unfortunately it can also become a place where one makes enemies.

But there are plenty of people who are not blind that never learn to see.
