I prefer to meet people online and real life. I make a lot of friends in both things I mentioned. I still believe knowing person in real life is much better compare online. How about you?

I have some wonderful friends online whom I would surely like to meet someday. I have some really awesome friends offline in the real world whom I love and trust the most. I don't think one is better than the other but you do have a slight better edge while judging people in real life.

Probably the real life friends, who share the highs and lows of my life. With my online friends, and I have some wonderful peope I've known a long time, I don't really share the lows, just the good things.

I prefer meeting people online. Maybe it's because I'm more socially inept when it comes to communicating in person - given my vision/hearing loss and ability to talk correctly. I mean there's nothing cognitively wrong with me - perhaps it's insecurity??? Anyway, the computer screen helps me in my social life more than anything. I especially like meeting people from around the world, and learning of different cultures. :)

I think there are a lot of things we communicate with others by our presence that are beyond words, so I would prefer the real thing, but there are things that come out in writing one may not always say, especially if you are rather shy. The friends we make online can become close in that way.

@Sheilamarie78 I am very shy, actually. Most of the time I'm in a corner just listening. I do a lot better one -on -one, though, especially if the person is friendly. I lug around my crocheting and usually have people comment and strike up conversations that way.

I do not get a lot of chances to go out so many of my friends that I meet are online. Though I wish I was better at making them offline as well so that I would have things that I can do with others here at home instead of always being stuck here.

I rarely go out also. I prefer to stay in our house that's why I have more friends online.

@flippish2014 I really do prefer to stay inside and away but at times it would be nice to go out and all. I have a bunch of friends I have met online tho. Some I even Skype with on voice so we can stay connected. We add a lot of us and just talk for hours while we all do out own thing online.

indeed... it is better to meet people in real life since you see their real intentions. but it is also fun to chat online, but it can be dangerous

My preferred way of meeting people would probably be at work. I used to use the online dating sites, but too many fakes and flakes on there. Through friends and family is another good method of meeting new people too.

That's a good reason why do you like meeting people in real life.

I make friends both online and offline but it depends on how people are. but I take lots of time to analyze the person before I make them friends and share about me.

I enjoy meeting people in real life. Since, I am disabled and don't get out much. I meet more people online. Than in real life.

I love the computer better even though it should be real life. I like being home in my favorite house clothes and not having to clean up after they leave. Or having to go out and be uncomfortable in situations I don't like.

I like both, but it's better to meet them in person. Then at least you have a good idea of what you're dealing with.

I meet most of my friends through common interests--mostly softball, music, horses, and woodworking. I do have some online friends I've never met in real life, though.
