Your Turn

Do you have more real life friends or online friends?

Real life because online friends are acquaintances who you may or may not know from real life, and have little or no real life contact with.

Real.

Real. But the older I get, the fewer they become as they permanently change their home address.

Depends. What is webcamming in a frilly negligee after 6 vodka martinis count as?

Real-life. Not tons but enough.
I don't have an account on most social media platforms but I know everyone on my Instagram in reality.

WickedBee said...

Counts as a good time!

Neither. I only like clients.
Hmmm?!
But, are they friends?

I have few friends because I like it that way. Not online, though I did have online "friends" in the 90s.
I have many online acquaintances, but they don't know much about my life. The few friends I do choose have been around for a while & we know each other well.

Online friends: 0.
Real friends: more than 0, but not too many.

i love my real life friends; some online ppl r interesting, funny, smart & intelligent, but not real enough to be my friends...

I actually have a pretty equal amount of both! Most of my online friends are fitness-related because my IRL friends either aren't into fitness or don't want to talk about it as much as I do.

Real life wins. I do love all the people who post here (well, most). Closest I have to an online community,

I keep to myself mostly. I don't have any online friends.

Real-life (more of whom are fake).

Mostly because they're disingenuous in pretending they don't snoop at my online activity and then act like "we have so much in common" (like it's all just a coincidence, when they probably scrolled 2-years-worth of online activity down but won't admit to it or actually openly follow me).

LOL I have ZERO online friends. What does that even mean? I have very few friends IRL too, but that's primarily because I don't label everyone I know as a "friend."

NoseyNeighbor said...

I have no online friends. All mine are real life.

greg said...

99% of people on this are lying. You guys know that you have mostly online friends lol... an online friend counts as anyone you constantly talk to or comment to

I have a lot of friendly acquaintances, but have 3 best friends who I hang out with regularly. I don't consider online friends "friends" because I don't hang out with them.

Wendy said...

I consider someone a friend if I hang out with them in person. If I've never met someone, I wouldn't consider them my friend.
