I dislike the phrase “internet friends” because it implies that people you know online aren’t really your friends, that somehow the friendship is less real or meaningful to you because it happens through Skype or text messages. The measure of a friendship is not physicality but its significance. Good friendships, online or off, urge us towards empathy; they give us comfort and also pull us out of the prisons of our selves.

internet friends are real friends and sometimes you move over two hundred miles to a city where they live because you’ve found your people
