“As we continued to talk, going through the motions of getting to know each other, I realized that we already did know each other, as well as any two people could. We’d known each other for years, in the most intimate way possible. We’d connected on a purely mental level. I understood her, trusted her, and loved her as a dear friend. None of that changed, or could be changed by anything as inconsequential as her gender, or skin color, or sexual orientation.” - Ready Player One.
I think this speaks to the way a lot of internet based friendships are. I have had a lot of people say things about internet friends like ‘OH, you are probably talking to a 45 year old man’. Maybe I trust people too much, but getting to know someone without the shallowness, or social barriers is one of the best things you can get out of the internet.
