    PMing is a gateway communication medium.

    It may lead to IMing, which may lead to phoning, which may lead to meeting.

    Be careful when you PM, kids!

    Ah, so the first two stages are just like my experience on MySpace...never got to that third stage.

    That's good advice, my dear children. This post, made by none other than me, teaches a valuable lesson in life.

    Uber, I think you should inverse the time you spend meeting people online with the time you spend meeting people in the physical world.

    Yes, yes. I think I should, too. But meeting others in the physical world requires me to be more spontaneous. I need to know what I'm getting into.

    A meet-up with someone via the Internet (preferably through a social networking site and most definitely with pictures of that person) is much more planned.

    Uber, you do get to know someone when you spend time with them in real life.

    Yeah but you can't do that if they live too far away to spend that kind of time with them.

    I tend not to pm since I'm intense in my expression and that has been a focus of misunderstanding some time ago. I wish I was down to earth when I speak too, you know lighten the mood up and stuff but I get carried away and get uber intense instead which. Although it was 99% fluff you can't help but feel alienated when I get started and whoa did I throw some whoppers. So I rather refrain from such activity. I get the impression I don't know how to lighten up, like I have something stuck up my behind on a good day waiting for the barracuda in tomato sauce.

    Pm's can be a lot of fun when its not intense fluff, unless you like that sort of thing.

    Its curious to note that the introversion aspect is responsible for not wanting to initiate to responses unless people are familiar. The irony being that people get familiar with responses. I have that same problem, friends tend to call me to go out way more then I indicate when I want to go out. I've never thought it can assume the same form online until now.

    I have finally confirmed my pattern of "the more I PM, the surlier I get".

    Introvert much?

    I don't think so. I enjoy talking to my friends at work as much as I can. I wonder what it is about PMs.
