Abstract
In this paper, I talk about how I maintained or the nature of, my relationships with my respondents during, and after, my PhD study on Facebook Interaction. How my respondents became my respondents, and later my beloved friends or Facebook friends, is also discussed. Also, what I felt, or feel, after one female respondent ended relationship, or what I felt after I found that she unfriended me, on Facebook, is also discussed. And some suggestions or life-lessons learnt are also mentioned, hoping they will, when read this paper, help future fellow researchers. Plus, how grateful I am to my beloved respondents for their generosity.
