This is what I like the most about Steem, it's the friendship you are able to create with strangers from across the globe (and also, from your country ;)) !
When you first arrive on a social media, it's sounds strange to meet others people outside of the website... Theses people are strangers and we are not on a dating / making friends 's website !
But here, on Steem, you blog, every day, and every day you go, days after days into the life of theses total strangers.
And you get to know them.
You are a bit shy, you start to comment on their post. They reply. They comment on yours.
Then you start to talk on Discord, on Steemit Chat, and one day you think it's just easier to skype and you see each other "for real".
And the day is coming : you are going to meet them in real life. It's like a first date: you are really excited... Real vs virtual. It's a bit scary : are we going to like each other as we like each other online?
And the rest is history.
