    I tell a lot more jokes in person because I talk quite a bit faster than I type. I'm also ruder and cruder in person because I don't have the "edit" option when I talk.

    There are certain curse words I say online that I would never say in front of my mama, daddy or other elders Other than that? I would talk same way to pretty much anybody.

    I'm the same. The only difference between my online self and my 'in real time' self - is that typing responses and communication on the internet allows for re-consideration of wording and implied tone. In 'real time' there is no lag and a person is 'live'. I actually think I'd come across much better in person than I do here or anywhere else online.

    I'm not rude to people when I'm face to face unless they are being an ass... and the same goes for online interactions. I'm a very forward and aggressive person in real life and have no qualms speaking my mind when I'm face to face with anyone.

    Anyone who has spoken to me over the phone could attest to this.

    I actually swear a hell of a lot less online. Seriously. Every other word out of my mouth in real life is ****, ****, or ****.

    That must get really frustrating for the people you're talking to, if every other word is "asteriskasteriskasteriskasterisk".

    Much more eloquent and handsome. When words pour from my lips, it is like gold.

    For some reason? When typing I seem to drop the f bomb and other curse words a lot more

    I said **** the other day around some co-workers, and they were like, "what the ****, did you just ****ing say ****?" and I stated, "**** yeah, I hardly ever ****ing cuss" But you know what? **** is like the new ****...

    EDIT: Oh, I guess that the C word is banned like the F word. It should read the C word is the new F word. Not quite the same zing that way though...
