“The quality to the quantity of a friendship, should matter more over its opposite. Why would a person believe that their 1,000+ online-only connections matter more than the few they truly trust to be physically close to them? It seems the trust factor has been completely ommitted in online friendship, to the point where it is not even needed.
To be physically close, requires trust. Such cannot happen in an online connection.
Such means that in an online friendship, quantity has surpassed quality, making the latter not even necessary, like trust.
The person who places more faith in an online friendship, places more faith in expendables, knowing this person has the freedom to drop the connection, during any time.”– Modern Romanticism
