    Yay! No Eye Contact On The Internet.

    It's easy because in real life, people judge you by looks. On the internet, content is more important, and I appreciate being talked to REAL reasons instead of shallow ones.. Plus, you can go into communities and forums for things that interest you, and others, therefore it's...

    Weird, Isn't It?

    I am the same person offline, as I am online... only I'm a bit more quiet and broody at first... mostly because, when I meet people for the first time, offline, I have to get an "feel" for them first. I trust more easily online than in person. Even if I know the person...

    It;s Always Easier...

    I have very few friends in real life to be honest.. I don't think most people like me. I'm just too shy and quiet and I find it extremely difficult to keep up conversations with most people... because I always only come out with short answers so people don't really know what to...

    Easier to Make Online Friends

    I find it easier to make friends online than offline. I guess because I"m behind the computer and I don't have to go up to new people and introduced myself which I find a little hard to do. I think because I"m afraid of rejection. I had friends offline but they don't...
