I have joined in Italki since Mar 2014, I have many friends who help me and whom I can help with English, I don’t know how to describe my feeling right now, but I want to say thanks.
I have a sis-sis relationship with one person who comes from Pakistan and she is just 17 years old. We had wonderful time when we talked to each other and helped each other in learning English. Haha. I had never believed in online-relationship until I met my little sis. From yesterday to Apr 2015, we will not talk to each other because her mom doesn’t let her online and I need to focus on learning Mandarin. But, I promise to her that although I have a lot of friends on skype but I will not forget her. So, I will keep my words, I will not forget her.
Yes, online relationship is an unreal thing because we don’t know them as much as we hope, we just spend some time to talk to each other, we can’t hang out together, we can’t lend our friends our shoulders and we can’t borrow their shoulders when they or we are in the bad mood. Yes. We have distances. But we can help each other on learning, we can share them, tell them some stories which we cannot tell to real friends, …
Yes, online relationship is an unreal thing, but we can make it real, it depends on us. I BELIEVE IN THIS, how about you?
you are right! we can make this real!
I met a guy online a few months ago and now he is my fiance.
Everything is possible!
It doesn't matter how a relationship gets initiated.
What a beautiful post Kelly.
I believe that people weave in and out of our lives in many ways. Sometimes are here for a moment or two but touched deeply. We may meet these people face to face, in passing, by writing or in a dream yet the experience touches us.
Kelly, I think it's amazing that you have a sis-sis relationship online. For me, the power of the Internet in uniting us all is something that is going to really change the world. I love my online friends as much as my offline friends, and for many of them I'd go to the end of the Earth to help them.
I'm recently join with italki. I hope that I can have "WOW" experience like u.
