in real life i cant really find ppl who shares the same interests i have - most of them make fun of wat i like - so adding SOME STRANGER WHO MIGHT BECOME A FRIEND BUT DOES SHARE THE SAME INTEREST (THAT!!!) i DONT THINK IT REALLY IS A BAD IDEA

that is just to put it in simple state and most likely THE NO.1 REASON


i'll keep thinking about your Question and will be back ^^

but one more thing how about directing the Q to U ? (( just curios about yr opinion )) xD




One of my hobbies include anime. Well, I've been on different anime forums searching for a variety of anime shows to watch but haven't found a website that stream 720p so I found this website by chance. I decided to spend a few dollars watching them in 720p but haven't found a decent loyal fanbase that likes to share common topics posted by me. I do download most if not all my animes in 720p and 1080p but if there's no such quality 480p is usually the next best thing. Most other anime forums aren't really good at spending times on certain issues we deal with everyday but delude themselves to pretending to be an anime character online and teasing with anime jokes. It didn't feel enjoyable since the experience wasn't there. The number one reason I joined this website was to stream brand new series without getting thrown off topic by flamers and what nots. Anyways, there's many people that like anime in rl, u just have to find the right people to talk with. If you can't find that interest you can obtain new ones from them or use this as a hobby that you enjoy. I feel that the random people you add on CR usually act differently than they do and give fake personalities to you. I don't see how this will make yourself feel natural when you're talking to them about topics.



well i never met anyone who pretended to be an anime character (( maybe U mean the COSPLAY ADDICTz )) but ppl who pretend to be = i think in someway somehow its creepy & weird =S ....

Well yah one of the reason that i JOINED CR was becuz almost all the anime series was found there , and had the best quality with no video errors .... but recently YES im dissappointed on wats going on in here

AND YES (( anime - manga - or drama )) ain't the only interest i have (( U can check my profile ))

basiclly our accounts are like masks (( THE SCREEN ITSELF IS A MASK )) - even nicknames they aint our real names (( U yourself have a nickname and is hiding behind your screen im not saying its a bad thing & besides everyone does the same thing even me , yes im hiding behind my screen so? wat about it? i dont see wats the big deal about it? )) if U dont trust anybody then dont u shouldnt force yourself too , somehow after talking to some ppl U may feel relieved and start trusting them

U say ppl aint honest and have a change in personality while talking to others online, well i dont thinks thats a bad thing either , instead i find and explore more about my HIDDEN SELF..... AND yes i feel i have the FREEDOM to say watever i want and actually i see my true self

(if u feel that ppl are faking everything if u feel that u are being decieved then just dont talk to them ever , u may not know it but there are some ppl who are the exact same thing in real life and here

and hey in the last sentence u said ( topics ) wat topics do U mean




I think u misunderstood what the intent was going to be. There's never been a trust issue when talking to some strangers online. Usually what u say is the typical response from people that enjoy talking to strangers on anime forums with that in mind and it's a form of a bias opinion. What i'm trying to say is that talking to someone on a personal level is not going to happen with someone u meet online that u haven't seen their face. People lie all the time on anime forums, it could be that u might lie to someone about a hobby u enjoy but not necessary have a motivation to continue with it. It's the experience people get from this, if u enjoy talking to people around the world through the internet and making friends then thats what u chose too do and you think its acceptable. If you don't think u are that type of person and u hide behind a screen to pretend to be someone else then thats what forums r for. Seriously, u cant take anything serious or joke on the internet since chatting from the other end isn't like that in rl. Anyways, topic can be anything that u found interesting or that has sparks your attention, such as this thread.




Ok im srry if i misunderstood or seemed rude or anything =[

but i do trust my online FRIENDS (( not strangers )).....

and Yes its obviosly as u said that i wont reach the level to talk about my personal info. to STRANGERS ,thats insane ... Ppl lie do u have the evidence!! and if they lied about for example their hobbies its their problem they might get in an embarrassing situaton...!!

YES i also do think its acceptable to be friend ppl from around the world ... its fun specially that we do have one thing in common which is (( ANIME manga or Drama ))

ok im hidding behind my screen but that doesnt mean that i PRETEND to be someone else....!!!!

its a personal reason that i dont want to reveal :sweatingbullets:..!!!!

hmmmm will it depends on wat topic we r talking about if its serious,a joke , or just in general... (( i think somehow its about expressing your opinion , that goes for threads - but if u meant CHATs personaly i dont go entering CHATs though that i actually entered once from curiousity but no i didn't like it , im more comfortable with threads + yah i do enjoy them XP , and talking to JUST my friends ))

.:.

im not saying talkin to some stranger is a good thing (( but if that stranger somehow became a good friend then why not!! as long as keeping the limits )) that is wat most of us do\should be doing...!!!!!! Since safety is important ^^

So what your trying to say is if u were given the chance u would have a new best friend online and that would be in anyway the same as having a best friend in rl? I think ur living in ur own delusional world. Even if that person was your best friend, u cannot judge whats not seen. They could have been lieing all the time and posted fake pictures of their friends. You would never know since the internet isn't what you expect outcomes to be in rl.

NOT A BEST FRIEND but just a friend and i wont pick them randomly or just like that!!

no it's not that im living in my delusional world >> and i perfectly know wats right and wats wrong and the diffrence between rl and the internet >> i wont be confused


if that person is lieing then let him acts his role in the lie he created >> though that i do trust but that doesnt mean that im not careful and im NOT STUPID to believe on lies though it might seem real

True i would never know but being careful does bring u to the safe side

It's the internet everybody is strangers. I don't agree with put your photo on the internet. It creeps me out people might come up to me and say hi Robin i saw you on the internet.

You need to be careful. I've met liars and vicious people online. However I've met a lot of very good, genuine people who have been exactly what they said they were.. Not everyone in this world is a dishonest cheat and there are a helluva lot of people who use the internet because they want to meet people or enjoy talking about their hobbies with people. I have a similar problem that i don't know anyone in RL who enjoys anime ... that's the extent of it. I work in an office where people talk about football all day - it's boring to me.
