Tristanlogd Posted May 26, 2010 Share Posted May 26, 2010 So I thought I would throw this out there and see if anyone else feels this way. I am extremely good talking on the net, I can be funny, charming, everything on an instant messenger. Know exactly what to say and the right time to say it, things just come naturally when I am talking to someone I really like. Same goes for email and text message. So why is it, that when I am face to face with someone, or on the phone, I can't for the life of me talk how I want or hold a bloody conversation. Why do I have to act weird and say wrong things or stumble over words? Why can't I be the person I am online? Is there some trick to letting go, and just being who you want to be? I met a girl online and we started talking, and then texting, and then calling and talking to each other on the phone. Then we met, and she ended up not liking me because my real life persona didn't match my online persona. Is it because I have less experience dealing with the persona in real life and am more comfortable in an online environment? I think I understand what the problem is, I am just trying to figure out a way to make the persona's the same, is the only way to get out there and just interact with people? Anyone else have the same issue to a certain extent? Link to comment
