On line, it is easy to talk to people. I don't lie, but I can choose what to tell them. I can hide my feelings. I don't have to worry so much about rejection.
In real life, I find it very difficult to talk to people. I always feel like I'm going to be judged for everything, from my clothes, to my car. I don't feel like I am going to be good enough to meet new people.
If I know you then you can't get rid of me, but I still worry about scaring people away.

You don't give yourself enough credit :)

You always seem a nice friendly person to me. Try to let your personality come out a bit more in real life I'm sure many would love having you as their friend. We are never going to please everyone but as long as your truthful and try and understand most people you'll come out ok. Perhaps it's a question of trust and you've been hurt before, so have I but I pick myself back up again and carry on with a bit more experience. Good Luck

It's really hard to know who's for real in this life. I used to worry a lot about what people thought of me until I realised most are too busy being interested in themselves to care about what I'm doing. But I understand that constant worry that you're not matching up in some crucial area. Well for what it's worth, I belive that you are more than fine. Probably way too hard on your wonderful self!
