Online co-op gaming; Friendship introspection

I've been playing several sessions of co-op games lately with Matthew, a co-worker and friend. We started out with Portal 2, and moved on to Resident Evil 5 from there. We'll probably go to Magicka next, and/or later Trine, Dead Space 2, and perhaps others. We talk a lot during the work day, and lately have been going to lunch together a good many days of the week too. I'm a little surprised he hasn't gotten tired of me yet.

Most of my in-person relationships are only such because of circumstance. Coworkers, for instance, or gaming group members. I rarely see them outside of that setting, and rarely do we ever talk about anything intimate, personal, or confidential. My friendship with Asa, and now Matthew, is the exception. In point of fact, now that I live on the other side of the country my friendship with Asa has started to wane, and I suspect the same will be said of Matthew once one of us moves out of physical range of the other. That may not entirely happen, though, because we've been doing online co-op (games that don't need physical proximity) and have even been doing voice chat to coordinate on Resident Evil 5.
