I'm sure we all have common friends here, but have any of you gone beyond mylot to make your friendship stronger? I feel that mylot offers the right platform for people like us to make friends from across the globe, and its in our interest to develop it further. Have you or your friend taken this initiative? Wouldn't you like to try?

I liked a few people on mylot and wanted to make them close to me as frds. But as somebody said, that online 'friends' wear a mask and the real person is hidden, it diffused my interest in making online frds. Who want pretenders as frds? I have none now thx

preethaanju, Not all are pretenders and you need to try to make friends. Not everyone will like the idea or come forward to be your friend, but unless you try, how do you expect to make friends? I am in touch with a few people and try to devlop it through some activities. I have been able to assess a person based on the feedback I've generated over a few interactions. That's how you need to assess and develop true friends. Thanks for the posting.

I am sure that with some effort we would be able to generate more interests and develop true friendships.

Actually, it is a great idea, and I start to make friends here purposely recently. But still for the reason of long distance, in my opinion, to get a firm friendship is hard. Because without meeting a friend physically wont feel real for me, at least. What about you, and other MyLoters? I really want to know, if you have the same opinion as mine.

Gary, I don't think distance matters if its true friendship. I remember reading one post here which said that she wrote to a guy for over a long period of time, and gradually they met one day and took an immediate liking for each other and married. So you see, things cam happen even in long-distance friendships. There was another post from a lady in Europe who said that she has a penfriend in India whom she writes to. Their writing has been going on for over 10 years and that she would like to visit him, if she got the chance to travel to India. So you see, the possibilities are immense. It all depends on how you develop your friendship.Thanks for the post.
