Do you think that there is a difference in what you write online compared to what you say IRL?
I am not just talking about ex's here. I am talking about anything. Ex's are included in that but I was just curious to know if people are different online compared to how they are in their normal everyday life. I was flipping channels the other day and ended on MTV. There was a true life episode where there was 3 girls who were completely different online then they were in person. One girl seriously couldn't go out in public and do stuff but she had no problem getting naked and doing nasty online shows for men for money. So it all just got me thinking.
I think that I am nicer online than I am IRL. I have the whole thing going on that if you have nothing nice to say than you do not say anything at all. BUT I am not like that IRL. I will tell people exactly what I think when I think it and I have never thought twice about it. I am a very upfront and honest person. I do not go out of my way to hurt someones feelings or anything like that. An example would be if a friend asked me if a top was cute on her and I don't think it does I would totally tell her. Online I try to be nice to people and will not say anything if I disagree with them or think something is stupid. O well. Maybe I will work on that....or not.
As far as my ex goes...what ever I post here is nothing new to what I would say to his face if I talked to him. I think what I post here is a lot nicer than what I say to him because I will cuss him up and down if I need to get a point across to him.
Thank you ~* Helen *~ for the best all about me siggie! You are absolutely fabulous!
i am a bit different IRL...i am more outspoken online than IRL.....i have no idea why......i've always been afraid to voice my strong opinions but its easier to do it online than face to face with someone you really know or can potentially see all the time
Hmmm that's a good question. I think I'm the same.
Although when I respond to other people's posts here, I can stop & think more about what I would say before writing.
I also will probably say more in my own threads too. Because no one knows me & I don't have to censor to not offend. Like although DH & I have talked about his daughter being a & he agrees. I would never refer to her as the irl. Either to him or anyone else. I can really vent here if I need to.
