    I'd need some parameters on the term 'virtual' to answer that.

    Sometimes it seems as though some posters are programmed into a system that kicks posts out to troll... :dunno:

    I have met a few online that I consider friends... I even crush on a few :lol:

    On this forum, not yet. One at least one other, definitely. We even get together a couple of times a year to chat off-line. Great people!

    By virtual, I'll assume you mean internet.

    and by that guide, I will say no. It's unlikely we actually know each other properly.

    Someone we like online could be the most annoying mammas boy you've met in real life and someone you virtually choke out each time you converse could be the best drinking buddy ever.

    Personally, I am far more reserved, shy and respectful in real life.

    I take it back, I do have at least one "friend" on this forum, too! It's good to have friends! You know who you are, check your PMs.
    To the rest, Merry Christmas to all, and to All, a Good Night!

    I had to decline an invite to Christmas dinner from one of my forum friends. I am out of town. I will stop by to say "Hi!" when I get back home, though. Yes, you can make friends on forums, just make sure you meet them for lunch the first time.
