Long story short, my husband made online friends in WOW two months ago. He considers them his best friends (and vice versa). I don't understand how your best friend can be a voice over the internet whom you have never met. Now these "friends" have left his guild and ghosted him for no reason and he is devastated. He considered them family. While I think it was an odd situation I don't feel surprised because I just consider most gamers to be unreliable, childish flakes.
I also feel like he liked spending time with them more than time with me which hurts a lot too.
I am doing my best to support him in his grief but it is taking all of me not to just comment that he only knew them for two months, that that does not make them family, and that he needs to pursue his "real" friends who are here in person. Also that he shouldn't be trusting voices over the internet so easily, especially if he is going to get so attached to them.
I just don't relate to this kind of relationship so it is confusing and kinda hurts.
