Can anyone provide "emotional" word/phrase for a "friend" you have never met, but it feels like you really know him? I won't mind even if it was in a language other than English. :)

Update: Would love it if the word/phrase was related to literature.


Pen pal

a person with whom one becomes friendly by exchanging letters, especially someone in a foreign country whom one has never met.


Kris Rosvold asserts that

there is such a word, used in the Pooh stories and in Richard Bach's stories: Unmetfriend.
