What is it that makes a person more shy online than in real life, and more shy online after meeting someone in real life?

Sorry, completely random off topic idea. It was TOTALLY not inspired by ANYONE.

Well, SftS is still standing, somewhat. I can tell you for sure that in a week or two, it's going to change a lot. Most specifically, I'll be taking a bit of a step back from it.

I blame either:

A: If you instantly become attracted to him/her, or:

B: You have nothing in common.

Those are what I blame. I know I'm missing around 4 other reasons, but whatev'.

:kaukau: I thought it was the other way around. I'm more shy in real life, because in real life I'm always afraid that no matter what I say, my weird mannerisms might creep people out. And it's happened a million times where my brand of friendliness gives attractive females the impression that I like them.

At least here on the internet it's fairly easy to find people who don't judge you when you're being nerdy and you can spend as much time as you like rambling on about something no one else is interested in on your blog.

Yeah, that is weird. In real life, I definitely consider my self more reserved than online. It may or may not have something to do with the lack of real life ducklings to facilitate conversation. But yeah, Kraggh hit the nail on the head there, and I quote:

[...]my weird mannerisms might creep people out.

So much yes. The internet is nice because everyone is a creep. I mean, isn't that why we write up profile pages and all that jazz?

To be quite honest, I would be more socially active, if more people my age weren't complete cool dudes. Seriously, all of my interests and mannerisms are really seen as weird, while all I think I'm doing is being polite. Guess I was supposed to be a rude person with no regard for anyone but himself? I don't know.

That's pretty much why I've kept away from other people.

I am less social when it comes to meeting people in real life then on the interwebs/internet. My reason though is just my personality. I try to please people the best I can which at times will either end up with me gaining a new friend or a broken nose. I also have the same 'issue' as Merida where when I talk to girls (whether I find attractive or not) they always assume I'm hitting on them. I'm not sure if its what I'm saying, or my body language or if they are just use to people hitting on them that they assume any guy who talks to them is hitting on them. I also try to limit my interaction with most of my peers simply because of how rude and/or impolite they are normally.

So I feel that the reasons are normally:

Just trying to please the person and be accepted. Overthinking things like how the conversation might go. Or just limiting your social interaction with your peers enough that you feel you don't have the ability to hold up a conversation.

Did you see them going off to fight?
Children of the barricade that didn't last the night.
They were schoolboys, never held a gun,
Fighting for a new world that would rise up like the sun.
Where's that new world now the fighting's done?
