Are you the same person "Online" as in "Real Life"?

    I reveal more here than I would to a stranger in real life. Some of the things I've written I wouldn't tell anyone but my closest friend, if I had one.

    I probably come across nicer in real life - nonverbals makes a difference.

    Thanks JH.

    But would you believe in a group of new people I'm actually rather shy and quiet. I perfer to sit back and watch and listen to other people.

    Yes, I am the same person. I'm probably more tactful here because I can think about what I am saying and read it before I hit submit. In person, I sometimes say something and then wish I had had time to read it before I hit the submit button on my mouth.

    I dont know how I come across online, unless maybe I seem boring. but I assure you i am anything but boring. I am a very sensitie person. I don't mean that in a "touchy" person way, but a person that feels the pain of others. I want to help people any way I can. I dislike people online and in real life who feel they are a "cut above" the rest of us. . Often I just choose to not converse with those kind of peole online. rather than tell them what i think. .

    I'm much more outspoken in real life than online. I will fight for the underdog, I am very proactive about my/families needs and find a way to get them met., I am not afraid to say what I think. Online i am do this less. Partly b/c I am just a much better speaker than writer.
