is there anybody can tell me that, you have a foreign friend you have never seen and you contact eath other just by internet,and your friendship is kept more than 5 years??

 

i mean,we make friends with each other through ebaby,and we are talking about our life by msn,it seem that we are real friends.

but,how long can we keep the friendship?? is it a real friendship??

we are live in the different countries,almost of us will never see each other in the future,we all know that,only thing we can do is talking or shareing some pics or musics,and we cant do anything together in the real life.

the only way that we contact each other is internet,maybe someday you lost your msn account ,the friendship is over.

For how long .. hmmmm .. it depends on you .. you are the one who choose the period of this relationship .. and the main factors of good friendship are your personality and your friend's personality and the kind of obstacles which you are facing and how you gonna get over it

You don't need physical contact with people to make them your friends Cool

imagine your childhood friend goes to live abroad will you stop contacting him just because you can't see him everyday!! 

how long you keep your friends depends on how much you want them.. you can keep in touch with your online friend through different ways unless they don't interact with you and in that case you can't say they are "Friends".Cool

internet friendship may be good but it cant be as real as friendship in real life… coz they may lie to you easily… and you have to believe whatever they say… coz you've only seen their photos and you've never been in their life…

I know how does this means to you especially if this friend is special to you whoever he/she was, wherever the country she/he lives in and whatever the environment, culture and tradition around him/her. You can say this relation between you and this person a friendship, actually it depends how deep your relation, feelings and other things you share. Sometimes, for some people, it is difficult to see or meet the online person in real life for many reasons like distance, family, culture, religion, tradition, society, restrictions, etc. At last, it will be a great moment in our life that we met this person and knew him/her even by internet even if we didn't get a chance to meet him/her. Cheer up and be happy.
