I know we all have alot of friends here on Mylot. People who have shared links and advice responded to our topics etc. But, have any of those interactions here ever expanded to friendships OFF Mylot, too? Like sharing your interests and discussions here have made to people want to expand things onto AIM or MSN or Facebook? Things like that? I'd like to get to get to know people here like that, to make real friends, but I'm shy and don't know how or where to start. Share your experiences, and advice?

Well, hi Ladyobsidian, I must say that you are wrong in telling that mylot friends never extend their friendships to offline world. I have seen many mylotters who after being friends, meet offline and take the friendship outside the internet. And many friends in mylot also help us in various ways. I learned how to earn online and also how to blog from friends here! And by the way- my name's Ajith. Pleased to meet you! I have sent an FR to you! Happy mylotting!

I met a really good friend here in Mylot. We do not talk alot on Mylot but we email each other alot every week to stay in touch. This person actually liked the way i responded to discussions and found out that we both have alot in common. The weird thing is, we have the same birthday too.

I also have many friends at mylot and we do share our opinions on discussions made by us or somebody else. But yes this friendship is just limited to mylot, i must admit. though i feel this can be easily expanded on social networking sites like facebook. I would love to expand this friendship.

See, yeah, I feel the same way. I have so many friends on here, and we've shared opinions and discussions and things, and I'd love to get to know some of them off Mylot, but am to shy and don't know where to start. I know it's like getting to know anyone through any other online media, like an Instant Messenger or another forum, but somehow I've forgotten what it's like and how to approach people. lol

Well, there are people here that I consider a friend, even though we have never met in person, that I am now a friend of in Facebook and we have communicated both here and there. The thing is when wanting to get to that point with someone you need to take time to communicate here with them first responding back in their discussions and getting them to want to know you more. It can be a little harder in Social Networking sites to meet new people who can become Good friends, but it is possible.
