I'm pretty much the same. Maybe abit more immature, but online i even talk the same as i write so all those "bloody's" and other very english words i use.

I've only met one online person, and she hardly spoke english. She was pretty much how she seemed to be.
I do have a mate that i'd love to meet, she only lives about 4 hours from me. She hasn't had a boyfreind for ages and plays alot of computer games. But she's pretty enough and very lively.
Ya never know she may have something wrong, but i haven't found it yet.

matt-perhaps coz i'm tired but i really didnt understand your reply-you said you'd like to meet her but then again you said she's pretty!-its prob just me!

I'm just picking fault with everything-i'm bored you see-have been a recluse today!

yeh i type as i think -even on texts-i get replies from my manager like 'ramble'-i'm renowned for it!

J, it's definitely because your tired. I can't understand your problem with Matt's reply in the slightest.

Oh no no no no no. I've sworn off of relationships. My career dos.nt involve being around many people, and it won't ever stay in the same place for very long either.
I'd just love to meet her cos i reckon we'd get on like a house on fire.

Quoting samsara2

This is an interesting thread.

It's funny, when I joined this forum I decided to give absolutely NO info about myself at all. I was just going to snoop about and pick up some good travel tips, maybe help out where I could. I'm fiercely private usually, dont like ppl knowing too much about me....

But I've been swept off my feet.

All I know for sure is that I'm James.....

Wow Evelyn, you took my words out of my mouth. I felt the same exact way when I joined the forum but I must admit, this has been really fun and it is almost like we "know" each other in a way. I do wonder how many people in the forum portray their alter ego or a totally altered version of who they truly are...is it really you Eve?? Maybe even those crazy Geminis are only showing one side of their personality (and hiding the other) (not me though)

There's certainly a marked improvement in some members' writing skills as they post more. Wasn't there a recent thread asking, "Does Life Imitate Movies"? The usual expression refers to life imitating art. Writing is a language skill, which could also be considered as an art.

Look at some of the new threads, and then see if any are imitating earlier threads.You might have noticed that certain phrases/words penned by any one member in a particular post to rebut the comments of another member, are later adopted & used as part of the vocabulary of the original dissenting member in another thread. Outside this TP forum, no one knows where the thoughts come from. Of course, they will be attributed to the knowledge, logic, wisdom or imagination of the most recent speaker. That's the way we learn ... through imitation.

Socialisation and peer acceptance are other factors.On that note,let's throw the issue open for further discussion ....
