Do you think that women speak to others the same in real life as they do online?

  • Probably a mixed bag. Some I am sure do, and some do not. And some do some of the time. If they tend to be more blunt here it's probably because they aren't trying to avoid hurting feelings or causing anyone to get emotional. IRL, most people are more diplomatic about how they approach and treat each other. JMO.

  • No, I really don't think so. Especially the rude and demeaning comments that some women make......Well, at least, I hope that they don't talk like that in real life....... I think that some women hide behind "anonymous" so that way they can say what they want.

  • For the most part I think most do in general but the situation is different in real life. Here you talk to people you would not usually talk to. Here we have many different aspects to deal with that you don't with your inner circle. Even for those who work, you usually don't go all out about politics and breast feeding. Besides it's just much easier to be bolder when the person on the other end doesn't know you.

  • I am the same in real life as I am online there is no reason to be another way.

  • I know I'm not the same. Online I'm rather talkative and quite social, but in real life I'm extremely quiet and shy.

  • Why wouldn't I? I've never been the type to be one way in one situation and another way in another. I never think anything that I don't say and I really don't care if you like or agree with my opinion or not. Maybe that's why alot of the officer's wives don't like me! Hmmm... LOL

  • I think I'm a little more detailed on line. I think its because I can think about what I am going to say and choose my words a little more carefully. Although I think sometimes I have rented fingers because I seem to find typos after I post a comment. lol.
