    I try to use more words Because I'm Writing

    after all and may defend opinions a bit more but I'm not faking a thing and will treat people the same way I do offline, though not being able to see people's emotions or there bad attitude may make me a bit nicer. Good day

    In terms of basic personality traits,

    political views and even communication style. However, I'm not trapped online by my past, my body, the choices I've made and the consequences to my family and friends like I am offline. As a result, while I may be anonymous, I'm much more honest and open.

    I'm the same, with one small difference.

    When I voice my opinions online, or if I get upset about something, I come across as strong. In real life there's a bit of a disconnect between my brain and my mouth - I have an opinion, but I can't voice it. It's frustrating. But in terms of conversation, what you see is what...
