Talking only about myself and sorry for being judgemental, but the real life people I know can only talk about sports, tv, fashion etc. None of these things interest me. I feel most of the people around me lack depth and don't have sufficient background knowledge, hence a meaningful interaction is not possible, only a social pleasentry is possible, which doesn't have any substance. On this site there is a much larger pool of concurrent discussions, and I can pick and choose which ones I participate in.
Anything intellectually engaging, science, philosophy, sprituality, politics (beyond gay/lesbian/abortion issues, not the politics you get to see on the TV). And I hate TV.
Speak for yourself. I do both.
Some probably, not all.
No, I'm sorry. I'm just being nit-picky. It's a good question. :)
idk. i love this website. when i chat with my friends online, it's so happening. but when i met em in real life, we're just "err.. emm... arh.. how's your day?"
I like to write.
It's all about control. When I'm out with the general public I feel I must be switched on and personable at all times. I also can't be as vocal. Online I can choose to be personable or be a hermit. I can also mouth off and enjoy it without fear of getting deservedly punched in the kisser!
a sign of the times ;-(
not to be rude, but how come your on a social wesite if you don't like them?...
I'm not ;P
I have more confidence to truly be myself online because there is no condemnation for me here and if there ever was I can always be glad they don't really know me.
because in here people dont judge you but out there its a bad world.
ikr? UGH... but it's easier to block people on here than irk
