Internet you or real you?
its fucking freezing in the computer room.
im wearing gloves and a wooly hat
I can't differentiate between hot and cold :(
I know what your computer room looks like! I can imagine you freezing! Brr.
Don't be silly. At most, that is only half-true.
I'm much more charming, funny and personable in real life. Or I hope I am anyway.
online and irl
I'm more intelligent, more articulate and less loud on the internet.
I think I sound more serious in print. Like sort of stern-stupid.
I have a very enjoyable speaking voice and masses of charm which doesent come across in text, unfortunately....
real me is a lot less stressed out though.
Internet me tries too hard and uses quotation 'marks' too much.
i don't think anyone likes the internet me
middes aye, middes naw
You're all so ridiculously (and maybe conspicuously--hmmmmm?) self-deprecating. Obviously, I don't know you, but from what I have seen, both of you seem perfectly likeable. Buck up!
And by all, I mean you and lyle.
but my time at Drowned in Sound has taught me that I was just using websites populated by people who are even bigger losers than I am.
falls over less.
something. I dunno, i reckon my internet friends are a nicer bunch than the (mainly) idiots i tend to end up hanging around with IRL.
I swear and everything. And make ruder jokes.
everyone here seems to be cooler than me....
everyone on here is too hip and witty to compete
I think? People could back that up, maybe.
I don't think either are particularly 'cool' though. More 'alright, in small doses'.
Real you is better! :D
It doesn't get any cooler than that! ;)
which can't always be translated into written format easily.
I use my hands a lot when I talk as well.
In fact, these are probably reasons why my internet self is cooler.
I have a tendency to think before I speak in real life, sometimes with hilarious consequences other times not so much.
But I'm the same.
Probably real me - you get to hear my manic laugh.
real me hates this forum and dispises the place more and more everytime he logs on. neither of these are cool :(
people are always disappointed meeting me IRL.
Real me has a slight stutter that renders most of my wit unintelligable.
Its easy here to have something you've said taken the wrong way or take something someone else has said the wrong way. I'm only ever online at work which is when I'm at my most frustrated and wound up...
