i open up my inbox on a wednesday morning, and i find:
I didn't understand!! Were we not already friends? Did i do something to jeopardize our friendship and i didnt make amends? Did he hit his head and have retrograde amnesia?? what about all the good times we shared in the past? was that all for nothing???
Then i hit "delete spam."
But it did makes me wonder.... are my online friends as valid as my so called real-life-friends? I dont know how many of you have myspace or friendster or facebook. And i looked thru the relic that is my friendster. Maybe you should have a checkmark for "acquaintences", "friends", "BFF's", "some wanker i knew in college", and "i dont really know this kid, but i'd like to hang out with them more".... and we cant forget the "damn. shes hot. i want to be somehow associated with her hotness".
How many of your virtual friends are your actual friends?
and does anyone have virtual only friends? (Rajen, i dont count online sex chats as "friends" - despite how friendly they may be).
