I have spent the last 20 odd years playing online games and love the social side of the mmorpg and even before that muds and meridian 59 not really massive max 200+ people per servers and most muds less than that.
Friendships in games have in some cases outlasted real life friendships, one friend I have known for 13 years.
At the same time I know friends who got married after meeting on a mud.
I myself have had many online relationships some more real than others and a few went to real life meeting and become serious.
Even those that ended badly some good came out of it.
Some may laugh at the idea of this but honestly from my perspective it is pretty damn common.
