Friends stamp by Meddle689 Friends stamp by Meddle689
I hate it when people refer to me as an "online friend". It's kind of insulting actually, like they don't even care enough about me to think of me as an actual friend, but rather just some random guy they know online. I know that's not always the case with the term, but that's just how I interpret it.

Anyone else out their who cares about their FRIENDS can use this stamp as well. :3 Enjoy!

FAQ #80: Can I add thumbnails to my journal?

I think I'll use this. I have 2 close friends here that I don't know in the real world, and I wish I did, as I would probably end up hugging them. They aren't just online friends to me.

Real friends? Isn't that like spitting into the faces of all of your watchers? No offense, this is kind of following Yoshiwii1's philosophy of who are real people. But I can understand your point.

To be honest I only really use the term 'online friend' to explain to people I know or come across offline. My only social life is online and I don't want people thinking otherwise, like I actually physically see people or go out and do things.

This stamp is exactly how I feel. ^w^ I treat all those who are my watchers and those who I watch as my friends, even if we don't always communicate.

I used to be like all like that. But since some time, I've started thinking, if they're any worth it. I mean, those are guys which I probably will never meet and most likely will break any contact with them in a year or two.

I've been there many times. Maybe I'm just a shitty friend, I dunno. But still, I'm starting to trust people I met IRL more.

I don't see how calling people your 'online friends' would be offending though. I just use the term when referring to those of my friends that I know only online..

That doesn't mean I consider them any less of real friends, though. In fact, my online friends are much better friends to me than /anyone/ I know in real life.

I just wish my parents would understand and accept that.. But it seems that they think as long as I haven't met someone in real life they are not 'real'. Sigh..

I carefully differentiate these two from each other.
"On the internet no one know you're a dog." I don't know anything about you people on the internet, except your writing style and a username. (and on dA, a shit ton of drawings as well).  When I talk to a person online, can't know if or what they are faking, as I can't read any emotions in facial expressions and voice tones. I can't know what the real intentions, their real thoughts behind their words are. They can write "oh, you're funny! x3" but actually whisper in real life "oh gosh, not this story again. Please stop with this." Everyone who says "Hey, I am 14 and female! :meow:" Can be 49, male, married in real life.

I won't completely be sure wether or not the persons at the other side of the screen are really my friends until I have met them in person. But once I met them offline, they aren't just my "online" friends anymore anyway.

I don't see how online friend is an offensive term unless you're some sort of trivial individual. You are online, you are a friend. It's correct terminology. If you take offense to that the only one in the wrong is you for applying negative connotations to the label via your own efforts. If your friend referred to you as an online friend, why would you take offense to that under normal circumstances?

Guy 1: Hey ur a gud online frend 2 me

guy 2: OH SO IM NOT UR ACTUAL FREND WOAHHH U DUM AZZ DIK HED YOU DON CARE ABOUT ME ENUFF TO REMOVE THE ONLINE BCUZ ONLINE IS OBVIOUSLY SOME SORT OF EVIL WORD THAT MEANS I AM BAD

Guy 1: but we're talking online, i only know you online but i still con-

Guy 2: ONLINE IS MY TRIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER.

Its kind of funny how you gave a rant about overreacting, while overreacting. ^_^

Sorry, that was a little rude... but, as a writer to a writer, there is not much out there that we can't find humor in if we try hard enough!
