Online, nothing holds me back from being the real me. In real life, I am learning how to not let things hold me back but I still care too much what people think. I am a kind caring person and in life I get taken advantage of too easily. I have found that online I am able to voice how I feel without worrying about anyone else, and it's helping me to be more open in life. I'm glad for EP. It's a great place to practice voicing.
Wow. Couldn't have put it better myself.x
i'm not pretending , but off line i rarely talk with people and i don't go out much or even socialize so actually on the internet your seeing the real me ,outside in reality is the hidden me
Nicely phrased, I like that.
I'm like you :-)
aaww then i feel for you too
Same with me. In real life it's a lot harder to try to strike up a conversation.
no; I'm more shy and quiet offline. It's easy for me to type what I want to say or feel, but I wouldn't be able to say things offline that I would online. I"m like Adrian on the movie Rocky.
Yep what you see is what you get :)
I am able to express myself more online. I think my inner feelings do come out more online.
I can only be honest. But if that has portrayed sides of my character.. so be it. I can only be myself. We all have are positives and negatives... and our pride too
Depends on who I'm talking to. I must admit that those reading my stories here on EP know more about me, emotionally than any other people I know.
Very much so, though there are aspects to myself I don't share online at all; and I speak less shyly online than offline, which might be true for most people, that last bit.
Except, as always, I'm not a painting.
Yes, although I share more of my personal experiences here way more than I do IRL.
Nope, I'm very much the loner and I'm extremely quiet in social settings.
Yes, on my old profile I did. I have been a bit tamer so far with this one.
Same person, always civil, a bit playful but always guarded
I am more me here then anywhere. I put on a strong and happy front when I am not online. It's safe to let it all out here and not pretend I am OK.
I don't volunteer a much self disclosure or opinions off line. I'm more likely to engage in debate online.
Im the same person,but with the chance to speak of what I believe in,and the experiences Ive had.So perhaps EP serves me as a mouthpiece and a place to find like minded people.
oh yes *grin*
Quite. I'm a good humored witty stoner wolf both online and off
yes, am always a morbid bastard
Wow... I am not a plush toy... Lol... But otherwise -yes...
no..i am flirty when i am online..while i am a shy person at offline
