In Person and Online

[ Edited ]

Are you in person, how you are online?  Man Very Happy 

 

Online I can be funny, witty, talkative, fun, outgoing etc.

 

But in person I am more quiet. In groups I feel shy and never know what to say.   When my family along with step family are together I go into a shell and feel like an outsider and they talk on and on, and I have nothing to say. I feel uncomfortable. But I am friendly Smiley Happy

 

If I talk to a friend on the phone, which is hardly ever since we always text, I can talk fine. But if I run into that same person in a store I can never think of a thing to say!

 

I would like to be in person the way I am online or in texts but not sure that will ever be!

My friends and family tell me that I'm the same in-person and online, for better or for worse.

In some ways but others no. I do not talk about controversial things in person with people. I'm very friendly to everyone though and usually try to start a conversation with most people. Some people you can tell just aren't in the mood.

 I'm the same online. Same personality , but with a group Due to my hearing I miss parts of the conversation and have to wait until people finish talking before I speak.

Basically, yes. The only difference is that here I need to be very careful how I word certain comments. Also, I swear a lot in person. :-)

@prettychis, very wise of you. The only time I might swear AT strangers is if I know they can't hear me. :-)
