My lovely friend Kaya and I came to this amazing idea since not too long ago it became 3 months since we have known each other. It has been a really amazing experience, we have built trust very fast to be honest, and kept talking almost every single day.

Usually things like this don't last, when everything goes a little too fast, but we just clicked. I guess this kills the theory of fake internet friendships, because in our case, it is more than real.

Now, we’ll give you an overview of what an internet friendship includes and add some tips that might be helpful for you!

It’s strange to have a friend that you have never hugged, lightly touched their arm or looked into their eyes. But you have touched their soul, felt their heart, been embraced by the warmth of their being. A friend unseen is not a friend untouched. The eyes of the soul will gaze and the heart will embrace.

♥ | helpful tips for internet friendships

✓ Don’t be afraid to tell the other what’s on your mind. You can’t expect her to notice something’s off if you can’t actually see each other. Be open and honest, it’ll only better your internet friendship even more. An internet friendship takes a lot of work to grow, they take communication and respect, remember that.

✓ Don’t worry if there’s an internet friendship that doesn’t work out. Remember that just as in real life, you keep the friends that are meant to stay. Effort has to be made and love has to be giving on both sides.

✓ Don’t lose contact because one of you hasn’t started chatting in awhile. Just start a new conversation yourself, and remember that it doesn’t always have to be a long one. Just catching up on each other can be the start of a random but fun conversation.

✓ Remember that not every internet friendship is the same. Just as in real life, you can meet different kind of people with whom you have different kind of relationships with. You can meet someone with the same music taste as you, or someone who has the exact same humor as you, or maybe even someone who's the complete opposite of you.

To all the hearters out there, I want to say that I hope this article encouraged you to believe in internet friendships, as they can be very real, but only if you want it to.

I have met the greatest girls on here (there are honestly so many of them, it's incredible) and they all have been very supportive and kind.

To Kaya, I want to say thank you for sticking around and being the amazing person that you are!
