    It's Somehow Somewhat Easier

    Whether it's for work, simple friendship, community or even a fling, I found that I am more comfortable getting to know them by online social networking sites first. Sure I know it sounds lame but it worked better with me and I didn't have to waste any time in awkwardness. I made...

    Its More Fun, Easy And Interesting

    I'd much more prefer to make only friends online than in real life. 1. I'm shy in person so being online isn't as bad 2. You can meet people from all over the world not just where you live 3. If anything bad happens you can jsut block someone, haha 4. And people are generaly...

    It's Not As Awkward

    I get really nervous and shy when meeting people in real life. I'm just really quiet and shy in real life. Online it's easier though for some reason. I think it may be because I don't have to see anybody face to face or make eye contact. It may also be that typing is easier...

    Its Easier...

    Because sometimes I'm shy. Or just nervous... I find it difficult to communicate 'face to face' with 'new' people, or people I've never spoken to before. Oddly enough, this doesn't really happen when I'm publicly speaking in front of a group of people I don't know. Yeah, I'm...
