So I'd like to think what you see on here is pretty much what you'd get irl; I try my utmost to be 'real' with my actual thoughts and feelings. The only difference I can think of, which applies to almost every introvert at least, is that it's way easier for me to explain my thoughts via writing than it is for me to do so verbally. As such I'm going to seem waaay more long-winded online than I ever am irl. That said, irl I'm much more apt to banter and chit chat (with coworkers for example), assuming I'm in a good mood. I don't really do that on here, as I'm not trying to build or keep up relationships on here.
    For what it's worth if anything, from where I sit, you've succeeded since you strike me as real.

    Either strawberry or rutabaga works with this; it is a hornpipe.

    They are quite gentle, really, but people avoid them because they are a bit . . . different.

    Yes and no, For a while I wasnt certain what this meant. Which was the real Jack? The Jack of fables online, or the Jack of knaves of the distant past? The Jack of all trades, I feel I'm supposed to be, In my time away, during the harrowing of irl in general I've started to realize. Yes. A jack for all seasons, and a Jack for all peoples, a Jack for no one... are indeed parts of who I've been and am; they're all real Jack's or as real as I've known how to be thus far. But every day forward is a day closer and further, towards the truth of myself, if such a thing can be said to exist for one such as I, and further from the fog of trying to be what it seems everyone wishes of me or me to be...you see? Such is life I reckon...

    Of course I behave differently because people aren't brave enough to say half the things that they say behind anonymity irl.

    Online I (almost) become extraverted. I'm more 'aggressive', blunt. I share my emotions and my thoughts. In some way I feel like I can connect more with people online, but at the same time I feel like they are not 'real'.
    Also because it takes time for me to put things into words. IRL, I tend to forget stuff. Later on I'll be like 'fuck, I forgot to tell them this or that' and it annoys me, even though it's not even that important.

    IRL I'm more reserved. But with the right people I can be playful, just joking around like I do on the internet.
    I'm active on another (Dutch) forum too and I miss the interaction I had four/six years ago on another forum. The people there are more stiff, there isn't a lot of 'playful' and direct interaction (except for discussions, I think many people there hate me :')). When I was 13-17 I spend much time on a certain forum. I even bought a game because the people there played it. It really felt like a friendship, a close community. I don't think about it a lot but now I am thinking about it... I took it for granted, I didn't realize what I had back then (but that's a human thing I guess). A community, some sort of 'friends'. I spend a lot of time with them.
    I hope I can ever find something like that again.

    So IRL I'm more introverted. I always think what I can say, but I almost never speak. I don't know why. I'm fine, just thinking. Though I should think about the fact that people like it when you say something too. I suck at being productive IRL. Online I feel like I actually do something.

    What's the same for me in IRL and online, I'll idealize people. On the first forum I joined I thought some people were very interesting. I would 'accidentally' post in the same topics they posted, 'like' the same bands/groups/people they liked even though I didn't know the band etc. I would interact with them when I could.
    Another thing is that I don't add friends first online, I'll always wait for the other person to do so. IRL it's just the same. I am unsure if I can consider someone my friend unless I hear them say that they consider me a friend. Then, when talking about them to other people I will (most of the time) refer to them as a 'friend'. It's probably because deep down I am still insecure, I wouldn't want to add someone as a friend, or refer someone as a friend with the risk that they don't feel the same or think something like "What does that b**** think she is to add me as a friend".

    Similar, albeit less talkative IRL, more of a listener. As a generality, there has to be a reason or goal for me to talk which online provides since threads introduce topics for discussion.

    I don’t think I act really differently here than IRL... I guess it depends more on the people IRL (like I won’t act the same way with my college friends than with coworkers) and I tend to open up more here about what I think/how I feel than I usually do

    Also I haven’t stolen anything from you guys here yet so maybe this place makes me become a better person

    There is something of a disconnect for me. Currently the Stranger you would see with your eyes does not match the truth of who the Stranger is. It is a mask I was born with. I'm working on fixing that. But it's slow going.
