Many people here and over the internet have friends, family, and mates.
I take these relationships quite seriously, as I don't base them only on R.P.'s or simple "Hi, how are you?"'s. I actually care a lot more than that, to the point of willingly giving part of myself to the people I love. Do I really love these peoples? Yes, I empathize with these sweet people, and it's reciprocate, where both me and others gain from each other experiences and stories. And when need help, I can turn to these people to cradle me and help me think straight. Every night somebody makes me smile ^^
What's your point of view? What online relationships do you have? :P
