people who have the same interests need a mastermind group for encouragement and faith so it's a very good thing there are people who can truly express themselves here.

Well, if you look at the number of people online, it doesn't seem like people are posting very much. Like right now, for instance. I should get off the computer though.

I don't think it is strange at all...if people cannot express themselves in real life social situations, then it would seem perfectly logical if they had a lot of self-expression to catch up on via the much safer medium of the internet.

I think most people find it easier to write their thoughts out on a computer screen rather than talking to someone in person.

I agree.

And on here you can take your time to post a reply and try to make sure you get it right - IRL its so much harder to get what you want to say across in a way that other people dont think is backward.

I feel really comfortable on the internet.. I could say anything I want. Nobody could see me and judge me based on how I look or the way I act. They just see the words I type.. it's nice :).

Sometimes I feel starved for human contact - I think one of the greatest luxuries in the world would be paying a therapist just to listen to me.- Or just about anyone for that matter.

I have to agree with you on that one! Way easier for me. :)
I think that if there were a high concentration of us in a given area we walk talk almost as much as we do on SAS.

But ... since that never happens... this site is the next best thing. :D

haha. exactly!

Guess we're all actors playing the part we want to play.

I think the internet is a cycle trap.

Ditch the internet, and invest in a disguise so it's not you who is being judged- just the part you are playing.

Same thing.

I think it's pretty funny. People nervous about interacting...interacting?? Lol. But it's not like we're an Anti-Social forum (does that exist?). We recognize our social desire..

I am very open on-line! Very talkative! If only I was like that IRL.

The InternetZ is the only thing that keeps me relatively sane. Without it, I would have no contact, a part from my family, with anyone. So I'm glad such a thing exists, especially this site.
