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


I met mine on minecraft, we were mad at the same person for a house incedent o-o #Lazor


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.


Meet on omegle. The most random way and we have been friend's for 5 years now


I met him on whisper. I said I had relapsed and he was the first person to message me. We have been talking everyday for 5 months now.


We met on Twitter. She tweeted something that caught my attention so I replied then she dmed me. It was November 2014, we haven't meet yet.


Almost a year ago, I was bored one night and asked on my nerd account if someone would talk to me. It all started from there


Snapchat, she told me we could be single potaotos together


Met on an online game. A year later he's my best friend. I love him.


I met her from a group chat that my friend from an app called vent put me in. She knows me better than my real life bestie.


I met him on Instagram when I randomly messaged him when I was bored and now I know I can tell him everything


Neopets 😆 We both enjoyed writing And so years later here we are.


We met just over a year ago on Instagram. We're best friends and I have promised that as soon as I move to the USA I'll meet him.


We met four years ago. It was in a video game. My life's probably gone a little down hill from meeting him. But he would have to be the best person I've ever met.


Wattpad. She liked the one book I wrote and then we started to talk more and I think of her as a sister now.
We’re all for finding internet best friends, after all that’s how we found all of you!
