I Type Better Than I Talk

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 186 People

    By Leaps And Bounds

    In person, I tend to be very stoic, quiet, and monosyllabic with most people. When I write, however, that goes out the window. I recall when I was in some computer/African American studies club  when I was 17, the instructor would ask me about a topic, and... I blanked. Then he...

    Typing On Skype

    I like to chat and cam with friends on Skype or Google chat, but I don't like to talk on cam. I like being able to see the person I'm chatting with, and like it when they can see me, but I'm not very good at speaking, so it's much easier to frame my words into sentences and then...

    Sad, Yet True!

    Most of my life, I was always the "mute girl". No one cared of what I had to say or think, so I was always the listener to everything. Now, in my adult years, people want to hear me speak more... and it's mostly a train wreck! =p I tend to stutter and smash words...

    A Whole Other Side.

    There isnt really anyone that knows me in real life that also knows me from EP. I often wish people from my day to day life could read my stories and see who i really am. In the flesh im shy and quiet, at least until i feel comfortable around you, then i become more out-going and...

    I find it SOOO much easier to type

    rather than talk. Talking for me is awful. I overthink absolutely everything and get so dang nervous. Tomorrow I'm going to meet with a guy from school I've been talking to via Facebook he's super nice and we share a lot of common interests but man oh man I couldn't be more...

    Typing Is As Typing Does

    Actually I am more me when typing, when expressing myself through words rather than voice.... my emotions tend to sometimes overwhelm me when talking, and people react to the emotion rather than my comments; and that increases my frustration, which in turn causes more emotion and...

    I don't know why, but I always find it WAY

    easier to talk to someone about anything through typing, whether it be a text, or a message. If it's about my feelings, I have the hardest time trying to talk about them because I end up freezing, and shutting down. I do enjoy talking because it's not the same if you can't hear...

    Well Typing Is My... Life..,

    I am an author. Well ik I'm to young for an author. But I'm an author in my school. I write books and I love it! But when I try to tell a story, it doesn't come out right. It sounds awkward. And in stories you can express yourself. Like if you agree:)
