I met this mum along with LOTS of other beautiful mums on a parenting forum over 5 years ago.
These mums have been there for me since my now 7yr old was only 2 and I joined the forum to seek advice on having another child after such a difficult start to parenthood.
They have been through ALL my ups and downs with me, and I turn to them for advice and support before anyone else.
I know they are only a message or phone call away if I need an ear.
Even though I have not 'met' any of them in person. It is my pleasure to have them part of my life.
I sat to write my hubby's 40th birthday invites today and realised the ONLY people I would really want to invite to my own 40th are scattered all around Australia. Women I have made a strong bond with via "cyber" space.
I was a tad wary when I first joined the world of forum's and chat, but now it IS my world, and I would be a lost soul without my "cyber" buddies.
Do you have any strong "cyber" relationships, or do you prefer to keep your relationships in "real life" with face to face chats?
