These days it seems like everyone is meeting their perfect match on social media. Through direct messages and pokes and winks, the most epic love stories are blossoming all year round. This isn’t at all surprising since online dating is now the second most popular way to meet someone new. Seriously, just take a look at the twitter hashtag: #WeMetOnTwitter. But even better than that, social media has opened up a whole new world for creating new friendships. Chances are you’ll bond with a new online BFF over a fandom, or it could all begin with a single Tumblr reblog or magical Twitter follow.

Research has shown that social network users have twice as many friends online as in real life. We’re pretty sure this has something to do with being able to hangout with online friends without pants and many would agree.

Like these 18 people on Whisper who’ve shared stories about finding their internet best friends.


Tumblr. She posted her number we texted then met up and 7 years later still friends.


We lived like two towns apart and we found out we were dating the same guy in the town between us so we roasted him then became best friends

We met eachother twice in real life without knowing it and then met for real on Instagram. Now we are always together. The best guy friend a girl could have ❤


I met him playing a game with friends, the worst part is that I have been falling in and out of love with him for the past 4 years.


We were in a group chat together on kik. We have the same type of humour, and now I consider her my best friend.
