    Any of y’all extroverted irl but introverted online like me? I’m a pretty outgoing guy and like to meet new people but I’ve always been pretty introverted online, rarely making friends online.

    I’ve had my fair share of online hours but I guess as a child I would always just play Maplestory with my older brother and never try socializing with others (one exception being LightSoldierz7, thank you for carrying my noob ass out of Sleepywood when I got too curious). Meeting people online has always kind of intimidated me and I don’t really try making friends in any of the competitive games I play either (CSGO/Overwatch). (To be fair I have had a 10 month online relationship a couple years back but still I find it hard to be inclined to socialize online.)

    I know its usually the opposite but any of y’all online introverts out there?

    Nope.
    I’m a crass ass, thick skinned lovable bitch online. Usually. Lol.
    I’m a bit like this IRL too, but I do much prefer indoor time than outdoor time. So my crass ass thick skinned lovable self doesn’t really interact much with others.
    So to answer your question.
    I’m an online extrovert. And IRL introvert.

    Sorry can't relate, I'm equally as introverted irl as I am online.

    I'm both extrovert and introvert, irl and online. Depends on my mood.

    I always do my best to pretend that I am a normie irl. While on the internet I don't know. I just say whatever I want.

    Nah. I'm a caveman living in a cave six feet below the ground. So yes, I'm an introvert full-and-through.

    I’m just as introverted online as I am offline. To be fair I’m a bit more social online than I am offline.

    Never considered myself as one, but I guess I am an online introvert! I wouldn't call myself extremely extroverted in RL, but I'm definitely more social in RL than online.

    Something about being unable to see someone's face/reactions makes me nervous about trying to befriend people online. So I end up sounding a lot more formal and polite online, haha.

    Talk alot online. Not so much IRL, just enough to be realized as a normie. Prefer reading & silent interacting, and games, whilst that sometime even silently grinding away without people noticing, so when they asked about new feature which i'm tinkering over with, i can answer them without a hitch. So yeah, Introvert.

    I gave up on making online friends years ago. I’ve never had a forum friendship last. They all fade away...

    Uh, but then, I was making friends on low budget Neopets-knockoffs and Gaia Online.

    God I’m dating myself.
