I have been thinking lately (I know, suprising), do you people really know me? The answer to that question is no. I am a totally different person in person (haha). It kind of makes me mad that this board is a "family," but we only know everyone by their online personality. Know what I mean?

Does anyone else feel that you are a totally different person than what you sound to be here?

hmmmm... that's interesting to think about... I mean, obviously most of us don't actually know each other, but I feel like most of my posts reflect my real personality. I mean, my sense of humor - whatever y'all take it for - is no different whether I'm typing on this board or talking to my best friend. I feel like I act pretty much the same way... if that makes sense.

I'm the same here as I am in person... I'm loud, opinionated, easily amused, flirty, stubborn, bitchy.... the whole shebang. With me, what you see is what you get, for the most part re: Do you REALLY know me?

Meeting people in real life after chatting here has been a great experience. Everyone has been really nice. It's like starting over with people, because even if they were a "foe" on here--you don't feel that way in person. :)

Hmmm...must be the only one. I mean, I am the same way, but somethings you feel more comfortable doing on a computer than in person...I would not fight with an adult member if I were to meet them, but I do here. Know what I mean?

i understand what you're saying Bwaytheatre11- i try to be myself as well, but sometimes the internat anonymity (i dont prentend to be good at spelling here, though re: Do you REALLY know me?) makes people do or say things that we usually wouldnt.

I'm relatively shy, so this is a nice place to be a bit different.
I don't normally censor myself here, as I do in life.
You guys don't really know me.
And to be honest, I wouldn't be all that upset to discover you didn't like me.
(Wait, I take that back. A couple people on these boards seem to be against me, and it hurts me far more than it probably should.)

In life, I'm friendly, observant, and random.
Hopefully, that's obvious from my writing.
I'm also very innocent, very naive, and I hate arguments more than anything else.
Whether you can tell that from my posts or not depends on how hard you're looking.

I wouldn't say I'm different here than I normally am.
But honestly, how much can you tell about a person based on what they type on a message board?

I'm with Flowery. I'm pretty shy in real life. Granted, I'm still loud and obnoxious and I talk about sex constantly, but in real life I'm a little more subdued, and on line I just let it all out. Here, I don't have to worry what people think of me. And yeah, I NEVER censor myself here, as I do in life. So I guess you guys know me a little more that the people in my life know me, but I'd say in real life there's more of a balance between nice guy and sex whereas on here it's usually just sex. And I feel bad about that sometimes.... cuz' then I worry if anyone will ever take me seriously....

What you see is what you get.
I might be a little more outspoken here because of the relative anonymity. But even so, I have no secrets here.

Do you know me, probably not. But it's not like you "don't" know me.

I'm that much more charming in person.

And I'm taller.

I don't think i ever plan to meet anyone on this board since internet realtionship kinda things are kind cooler in my opinion w/o meeting the person in person. I always think it is cool how people act diffirent on the computer then in real life it shows a diffirent side (well that sounded sorta stupid whatever)

I think I'm the same in real life as I am here. I have never censored myself for anyone and never will.

With each stroke of the keyboard we reveal ourselves in one way or another. Each post shows some aspect of our personality.

I'm not a totally different person#16

If I wouldn't say something in person to you, I won't say it on the boards. I don't like that people feel distanced by the internet and the anonymity it provides and are therefore rude or different or that they lie to provoke other people.

What I am here is what I am in person.
