I made many friends online, and it’s true I stay connected with my online pals than offline. I really became close to many of them, and have broken the barrier of offline and online friends, and have definitely missed many chances to meet a few of them. Met any online friend in real life? Yes, once. I got thrilled to meet an online friend about one-and-a-half year ago. Not only that, he helped me for printing T-shirts for our newly started online business.
I met him through an online Indian site and we chat through different topics of public forum. We became so close that he used to address me as his elder sister (“Akka” in his regional language Tamil) and I was really moved seeing his affection. He has promised me to help me in future, and I didn’t even imagine it’s to happen.
We met at Thirupur and we shared a few nice moments also. We lunched at KFC along with my hubby, my daughter, and one of his friends, and I will never forget that wonderful day of my life. I have one more such nice online friend, who is currently settled at Hyderabad. We have planned to meet on several occasions, and it is still to happen. But she and I often exchange gifts, and the thought has never come to my mind, ‘We never met till now!’ I still have hope, it will happen today or tomorrow.
