"It’s a quirky kind of friendship, ones built mostly on text exchanges. Those relationships, especially for those who don’t feel very socially dynamic in real life, can develop more quickly and can often feel stronger than real life ones. Maybe because it’s easier to find people you connect with better from the internet pool, or that conversing this way diminishes some of the social barriers that real life interaction involves. Whatever it is, it tends to create some pretty strong bonds, and that’s become standard these days."
