Friendship… at a distance

Posted on | November 25, 2009 | No Comments

Does it work? Does it keep its strength as time goes by? And what about the time-zone difference?

These are questions I sometimes ask myself, giving the fact that some of my dearest friends are situated a little bit… far away, like 7 to 8 hours distance, counted “backwards”, those hours meaning USA and Canada.

When you have a lot of spare time, you might be able to get online at their hours or they to get online in a time that is suitable for me, but what happens when this time reduces or sometimes disappears entirely? What then?

And, like in all… online relationships, is that enough? Instant messenger and web-cam? Is it possible to say after… one week of no conversation that the friendship is still as strong? How about two weeks of absence?

What can be done? Where do you draw the line between simple acquaintance and friendship? Is it necessary a meeting face to face in real life or will the bits and bytes be enough?

What do YOU think?
