It absolutely amazes me what friendship can transcend. It amazes me that I can meet people that I’ve never met face to face, but have talked to more or less every day for two years over voice chat and in guild chat, and when you finally meet them, it feels like you’ve known them forever.
It’s because you have.
Meeting face-to-face just makes it better.
There may be worries of “What if it’s not the same? What if they don’t like me in person?”
Then all those worries disappear.
Has anyone told you that friends can only be made face-to-face? They’re wrong.
