Does that make sense? I'm been thinking about this for a while. I don't know how confident I come across on here and other forums. I think it is pretty hard to come across as panicky on a forum because well...it's hard enough to tell tone online as it is. I am fairly confident posting online, but any confidence I have has been built up by repeatedly posting on these forums, and not being told that I'm a idiotic asshole for doing so.
I still freak out on chat, though. Rarely go on there, never post, really.
In real life, I'm sure I'm not as confident as I may come across. Actually, I know I'm not. It's harder talking to someone I know in real life than it is talking to someone Online.
