On NS I don't have an alter ego as such. My views are my views and my life is my life. The only real difference is that IRL I am a lot more more sarcastic, and a bit more random, which I (usually) avoid online as it it's too often taken the wrong way.

I'm generally a nice guy IRL, but on the interwebs, I can be quite a jerk. And an opinionated one at that.


There is.

I'm an extrovert online because I don't need to deal with people online personally. You're all far away from me and most of you will remian unknown to me. I'm an introvert IRL. That's all.

I'm pretty much me wherever I go, just more so on the Internet. I don't filter quite as much on the Internet because the nature of a text-based medium means I get to say everything I want without having to make sure the other person gets time to talk. Everybody gets equal time to talk on the Internet...at least until the mods shut the thread down for hijacking. :blush:

I know a lot of people are more extroverted online then they might be in their personal life. And that's fine, obviously some who have difficulties in social situations find comfort in anonymity.

That's....not me. I'm just as social, just as flirty, just as sarcastic and just as generally bemused by the human experience.

In short, I'm pretty much exactly how I am.
