Y i go nuts wen m online ???

25 12 2009

Now,thats something I am truly amazed about because I am a kind of reserved guy who takes time to really open up.But thats not the case when I am online…I would become as talkative as anyone else out there and feel much more free than in person.One of the reasons I’ve figured out recently is that being on the web, I am miles away from the guy I am talking to and that instills some automatic confidence into me. People who have met me in person, often say that that they really don’t believe  that its the same me when I am chatting with them on the internet.
I feel more confident because I have enough time to follow up a conversation and really come up with a good talk …there’s no fear of losing your mind or running out of words.Also, you weigh your thoughts before airing it.

But more often than not, I’ve seen people getting confused as virtual conversations, unlike face to face talks, are little more prone to misunderstandings.People can really take you in the wrong sense as words cant express emotions (though emotIcons are a great aid but they also have got their limits).Such situations can really get worse if one of the two people has got even the slightest of ego problems.I myself have gone through such situations and I can’t tell u how hard reconciliation is !

There are also chances that someone may be spying on you while being your best online buddy- it could be your freakishly brute boss, your untrustful wife or your butt-headed head-master.So you have to be careful with that too!

Honesty on the internet is another big problem.You can’t believe in complete strangers and soaring statistics of cyber crime makes it clear that if you are way too innocent then chances are that you could end up being fooled almost 7 out of 10 times.

Though I am happy that Internet has made it easy for people like me to open up more easily and socially more active, I would really like it if I could come up the same way in real life.Thats where it really matters and thats what you should really aim at.I am ashamed to admit that it took me the help of Orkut to really get close to people around me.But I am also happy that atleast I did so in that way!!
Please share your views and suggestions 🙂
