Question about Japanese

How intimate is the word 君(きみ) when referring to someone? I've found myself wanting to use it several times when talking to friends online, but stopped myself thinking it would sound like I was dating them or something.

Same with the ending ~くん. Is it okay to end my male friends' names with くん?

Finally, is it offensive to end female friends' names with ~ちゃん? I don't want to sound like I'm putting them on a lower level, I just like the ender.

I'm a girl.
