I never consider a virtual friendship as unreal rather a real one encompassing real world of real people. Because, people behind the net are human like me who also uses the internet from the other side of the globe to make friends and met people (maybe not in person). I believed that most people who seek friendship from internet are real ones. They came to search for comfort from the misunderstood world they are living in. They believe that it is safer toinvest emotional attachment with virtual friends than the literal/physical encounter surrounding them. They invested too much trust and freedom to express their emotion once they found someone they think as real as they are. Unknowingly, they are falling into others trap and becomes a prey.
