So online you could be a big fat guy and become Jessica Alba with a certain flow of words and some cutting and pasting images and start hitting on guys and whipping them into an erotic frenzy hahaha Laughat

Or you could be Jessica Alba posing as a big fat guy. LOL!

Actually, unless if I were sock pooping, I'm actually more myself online because in real life I have to dial it down a bit for the sake of being polite and civilized. I mean I'm myself and very open to disclosing whatever personal info if someone wants to know, but usually I keep a lot of things to myself in a social setting where I don't know people well.

In a AA or NA meeting or a therapeutic group of emotionally disturbed people I'm totally myself because it's accepted and expected, but usually in real life I exercise more self-control so as to not freak people out, annoy, or offend.

You?

You'll have to ask Near. I think I'm pretty much the same.

RE: Are you the same person online as you are in real life?
Yes and no. I'm quite snarky here. I find myself innately forming snarky remarks when dealing with people in meatspace, but I tend to hold back quite a bit to avoid pissing people off. There are a few people who see it, but I generally try to avoid directing it at them.

Otherwise, I'm pretty much the same.

I'm always confused on why you reference your husband/boyfriend as if we know him or have a way to speak to him. haha.

On topic....I'm mostly the same online, I think. I'm a pretty odd person in general though, so I think it's hard to catch that online since facial expressions, jokes, and such don't translate very well. I'm definitely more open to sharing my more taboo beliefs online, but I don't project a different persona, or at least I don't try to.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

RE: Are you the same person online as you are in real life?
Online I seem to make enemies quickly. In real life that almost never happens unless I'm drunk.
Last time I got in someone's face while drunk I got taken down and my knee got extremely fucked up. Was limping for weeks. Didn't remember it happening, but woke up next to a pile of vomit and could barely walk. We were on a yacht, and I guess I drank a quart of vodka in 20 min and someone took it from me and I got in their face. I ruined the party

The time before that I got this:

glass shards in the forehead and a permanent scar.
So I don't drink anymore.

People who have been here a while do know him and have spoken to him frequently. Not my fault yall missed out. Tongue

I'm probably more eloquent online (given a certain discussion) since I have more time to think about my response. Other than that, I'm pretty much the same.

I'm the same, I don't have the time, energy or desire to pretend to be some one I'm not. WYSIWYG.

I think all of us limit our comments depending on the company we are in, but that is just manners, IMO.

Only difference is that I am a lot more quiet in real life.

You are WAY too noisy. Quiet down! Tongue

And what does WYSIWYG mean?
