    How close is your real life persona to how you are here :)

    Explain

    The same. I don't understand why some people feel the need to be someone they aren't? A little protection is provided by it being the Internet. So I'm not going to flash my dick in public or anything like that. Nor would I share my favorite porn clip with someone. But all of that aside. I am myself:D

    I think I am rather different on the site than I am outside the forums. Being able to talk about my sexual preferences is a little liberating and fun. No way would I discuss things like this on Facebook for instance. So I guess if I am fake anywhere it is more so outside the forums as I am more reserved, worried about social status and my work (how staff perceive me).

    I will share porn pics with my mates (especially funny ones) but there is no way I would let them know my real interests and fetishes.

    If you met me offline (outside of a few very select contexts) you'd be hard-pressed to connect the dots to arrive from that persona to who I am on here. (I'll give you three guesses as to which is more true to the Real Me.) The reason largely being my work and some of the social circles I have to move through. The personas line up a bit better once I know you and am comfortable around you, but until then...

    I wish I could say that it was a perfect matchup. I envy those that are the same person everywhere they go - online and/or offline.

    I would say my SF persona is more articulate and confident than my real life persona.... That should probably say everything about how I am in real life. It’s quite a scary thought.

    Here and in the real world I’m a quiet, reserved and shy kind of person. There isn’t really that much of a distinction at all. I don’t suddenly become a dynamic sexual being when I’m here and so far that isn’t me away from here either (one never knows... perhaps I change in the full moon or something). Sometimes I wish it was different but confidence for me is hard earned currency and I’m totally broke.

    I think I am pretty much the same SF just allows me to open up and talk about sex and share photos, stories, past and present experiences. I personally don't have a lot of friends who want to openly discuss sex.

    I'm the same person, however, people will perceive me differently, because I'll let them chose where we go. For instance, I won't talk about sex with people who don't want to talk about sex, even though it's one of my favorite subjects.

    Mrs E says the thing she likes the most about me is I am who I am. I'm the same person where ever I go. Gets me into trouble quite often, but so be it.

    We are the same. In public, private and on here. No shame people should be themselves. Others will accept or not.

    I think many who are different on the net than in real life don't have a choice. The Internet is someplace where they can live their dreams without hurting anyone.

    Of course, there are negative people, but even those, except for extreme cases, just need a bit of attention. This little world of us can be hard on people.

    Pretty much the same. The only real difference is that I don't discuss much of my sex life with my friends.

    My personality is the same on here as in my real life. Only difference between the two in real life I don't run around with my ass and boobs showing lol And I don't flash someone if I hear the number 10.:p

    I'm much different on here. In my life, I'm pretty reserved and bashful. On here, I can let a little of my freaky side show. So thank you everyone for giving me a place to explore myself!

    I don’t think my pics reflect the real me. I am just a regualar chubby Middle aged women.
    I am quite shy about my body and very body consious. But I am a real person and not pretending to be someone else.
    I post my true feeling and thoughts :)

    I'm very self conscious too. I have a lot of doubts about my body, my sexuality, my age. But coming here let's me be a little free, show a side I keep hidden from everyone else. I never feel embarrassed here.

    You are welcum, it’s fun to let a side of yourself show that you can’t in real life.
