To keep up a false identity one would have to have a very good memory don't you think. I'd like to think most people are genuine.
That seems to be an awful lot of trouble to go to but I suppose you're right, they could.
Well I just feel sorry for them, and why they feel they need to do that. Insecurity in themselves or deceiving others - they are to be pitied more than anything else. I can assure you though I am quite genuine. :)
a lot more hurting people than I would have originally ever imagined...
man....maybe I've been working too hard or perhaps becaiuse I have never been involved with a social media before...I just never saw so many hurting youth...
Enough to make me cry at times.
amen to that
I agree and think it is a good thing
Fake people? You mean computers pretending to be real people? Or robots? I'm not judgmental, as long as they don't try to touch me or show me their parts (wait a minute, that might be interesting, I've never see the inside of a robot, hmmmm;) anyway...where was I?
Oh yes, real or not, makes no difference to me. I either like who they are on here or I don't. I have no idea what they are like away from EP, and to me, it doesn't matter, as I never see them anywhere but here.
:) I like people; most of them. The few who disgust me (racists and the like) real or not, get blocked pretty quickly.
It does for me.
Manikins can type?
You asked if I thought there are more fake people than real people on EP. Fake people are manikins, and real people are humans. So for there to be fake people on EP, manikins would have to be able to type. But I don't think they can, because they are inanimate objects.
first I really liked this site for some honest stories, but now it seems half of the stories are fake. Why cannot they go somewhere else?
No. I do searches with expressions like REAL and most of the time end up reading poorly written fantasies.
I wouldnt like to generalise! I do know that there are men posing as women and vice versa...things like that do happen, some people are only after "one thing" and people can choose what they share.... I wrote a story about how people should guard their hearts on line and off line too. It's featured on my profile if you want to look...or maybe you will think *IM* fake because Im posing as a butterfly!?!
OK, well as I keep my circle very small all my friends are real
i haven't been on ep that long, but i don't know if fake is the word
wasted space and air fits a quite a of them ;)
i mean really, they take the time to click and answer a ? meanly i just don't get it
Shure, the Internet is fantasy land for many. For me I think it would be difficult to keep many alter egos seperate.
A lot more fakes then real on the Internet.
Hi inChange, *waves*... I have learnt to take the people here as I find them.
Most come across as sincere....or at least the essence is there.
Fake or real? fact or fiction?......it doesn't really matter, it's not worth losing any sleep over lol...
The weather here is ok, lots of rain.
I'm just about to go, as I have some important things to attend to.
Take care and catch you another time soon :))
I suspect users who have multiple accounts (not only two but more) here lately. And gives me the creep when I find them inviting me with empty profiles.
Most are real but some are not entirely themselves. EP is their escape, where they can voice their actual opinions or get something off their chest but in the form of another persona (if they choose). It's all down to the individual and what they want from the experience.
There are fakes on here that's for sure, but I have seen and got to know some very real people on here as well, they are the ones I take notice of. You can make what you will of me. ;)
everybody is real. screwed up emotional know it all ignorant ones are hiding but real.
it's true man. look at this way, we don't really know who we're talking to. it's a different world in real life across the table. misconceptionsand misunderstandings happen in cyber all the time. it's a personality thing but many people think they got you figured out and they don't. they're not fake, just ignorant...
I have met a lot of both. I cut off the fake ones pretty fast.
How can you tell?
I can feel it. I am an empath and can often feel who a person really is.
Sometimes I can feel others and other times I can't. But the more I am around them the more information I can pick up. What I have learned is all people are somewhat fake. They all hide a bit of themselves behind something or other.
I think most are real
A combination of both, like in real life.
