There are various ways to interact online nowadays. Forums, chat rooms, msn, hotmail, aim, fb, orkut, twitter, and other stuff that Im unaware of maybe? lol And I'm sure we have a few friends that are 'online friends,' but we consider them no different than our pals in reality.   Now, I know you cant trust every single person you meet online, of course not.; but the ones who you do trust and consider friends, do you really think they portray their true selves while talking to you? Confused I'm sure some of you on I-F have known each other for yrs now, and have become great of friends, but do you really think all of those friends are true to you? Do you take them seriously, when they say "oh I feel horrible today Ouch" and all of that sort. (p.s Emoticons can be very misleading. LOL  )

So, do you think your online friends are their true selves while talking to you? Or, is it more or less a farce somewhere along the lines, and you just go along with it?

As true as the music video in my signature. Online relationships are best, low maintenance, low baggage and peace at the click of a button. If only real live human beings came with a shut down button. LOL

On a serious note, the internet can be a great place to meet new people sharing common interests and ideas. It is also a nice place to socialize. However, it is always important to be very careful. There are people who will intentionally pretend and take advantage of you. There are also people who will consciously/subconsciously be fake. That does not mean that you will not meet good people or make good friends online. You do have to be very careful, use your brains and act with good sense and caution.

So far I have met five people I met online irl and it has turned out to be good.

They are all good and safe, until the moment you decide not to remain so anymore....

I have made some pretty nice friends, and frankly speaking, people can't go on with the farce for long, so you do end up realising the person's true personality... It's all about how much you decide to reveal about yourself... Caution is always the word to be!!...
