Today, I see message in shoutmix at my blog. The messages from my Old online friend. He lost my phone number and asking my cellphone number. and I am in order to SMS my phone number to his phone. So I send SMS my phone number. After that, he was calling me and said he wanted to meet with me. I agree and ready to go to a place in the promised. in fact, he foil event for various reasons. This make me doesn't believe 100% to friend who I met through online. Do you believe your online friend ?

I didn't get you, he asked your phone number and you gave him. Then he asked you to come and meet which you did and at bottom line you are saying that he foil events for various reason! I don't get it. For me, I have never had a chance with meeting my online friends as all my friends live far away from me. In fact they are from other countries!

Well, like u say, it's an old online friend, and there should be a level of trust between u and him.. If not, he wont be coming back for u, and trying to contact u in the first place ^_^ Right now, there's not much difference between real friends and online frenz for everybody is just wearing a mask, and pretending to be someone whom they are not.. ON top of that, online friends are just there for the purpose of being there, so that they can use it to show off by proving they have lots of frenz.. haha =D Be it trusting them or not, it depends on each individual.. As for now, in mylot, at least i have one fren whom i really trusted in her ^_^

Hi si-cantik srikandi19, I don't believe some of my online friends either, at least for one or two they can be very cruel specially at posting, double face too. But i can always count for my fellow country more close. Lately, i got email and phone call from malaysia said i have to pay sum money because a westerner just send me laptop , camera and stuff and not pay for the delivery service, well i just said to him, why don't you send it by FEDEX , the website is so good so that i can see where the produck arriend and at the way too. so i don't have to pay for extra? Hehehe... happy posting always, hun oxox'dian from bali island.

Never really been given a reason not to. But in this circumstance I can see your point. Maybe he just has cold feet. It's his problem, I wouldn't take it personally.

Yeah, either do I. I never believe it so, sometimes they all just playing around (including me LOL). I suggest If you want serious relationship try not find it in online people, you have to know a lot him better or in a long time period.

yes i believe in online friends, but I am not too hip about meeting online people i don't know. Too many things are happening now days that you really don't know who to trust. Just remember when you are going to meet someone you never met before that it may be a set up or may not work out. That way you won't expect too much and get hurt as badly who knows they may even surprise you.

Now,with the rapid progress of the economic,we have been entered into the information age,and the internet plays an important role in this progress.So almost everyone can surf on the internet,and more and more people use the internet to do any kinds of things.Some people play games,watch movies,listen to music,others even make friends on the internet,and it is become fashionable.I think online friend is somewhat dummy,but not all of them are untrue,i think some are pure-hearted,we can believe,others untrue we can't believe,we must have the ability to separate from the good and the bad,only in this way,we can protect ourselves to avoid the harm.

I agree, before we trust with our friends online. we must know him longer, and often communicate, and meet with the person in the real world.

Well i cant believe everyone whom i meet online, as i had some bad experiences too. But i got few friends here who are my friends since more than 4 to 5 years from now and they are really genuine friends.I trust them blindly, we get together in conference and have a long chat everyday for hours and can talk on anything possible never get bored. We gift each other on birthdays but havent yet met.and dont expect it too. but we are like best friends I think i trust few of my online friends more than my real ones. happy mylotting

well at first I never meet any of my online friends may it be near or far just trying to avoid complications and maybe one of this day when I will have a trusted friend I would meet with them and I hope I wont have the same experience that you have coz it would be such a sad experience if I will have to be fooled on meeting them then they will not show up...

Dear friend, May be it depends how they behave to me and how I could understand them. But I do think they all are not good. There are good friends whom I feel so I do belive, also others whom we should really have be careful with. But I love to make good online friends.

Yup .. many people use the identity of others to introduce themselves on the internet. Don't trust 100% in your online friends before you meet him / her.
