Random blog topic – Does your “online” voice differ from your “offline”?
Yes…very much so…at least to people who aren’t really good friends with me. My online voice is the me who I usually am once you get to know me…well after the first meeting. I’m much more painfully shy in public than I am online. Also online I’m more liable…at least in SL…to be in roleplay mode which is completely different than the real me. Much more confident & knowledgeable & open for anything than the naive, shy normal me in real life is. Online is where I first learned to let go & let myself give up control to someone else, & where I first realized that I was a little…finally able to put a name to the way I’ve been for pretty much as long as I can remember. Even on WoW I’m braver than I am in real life so yeah….it may not so much differ just…the inside me that’s usually hidden comes out & can seem to some people as if it’s almost 2 different people.
