Why is it easier to talk to people online?
I've gathered that I'm not the only person to finds it monumentally easier to interact with other people over the internet than 'in the flesh', so to speak.
I know why I feel this way. It's because others don't have to see my face and hear my voice, which eradicates two of the dominant problems I have when dealing with people. Not having to worry about how ugly one looks or how one's voice sounds makes conversation considerably easier; I can express myself to the full extent I wish to without hindrance.
I've actually managed to make some great friends online, thanks to being able to be open and honest and make interesting convo' (in real life, I have the social aptitude of a slab of concrete).
But what about the rest of you?
