I'm an awful person to speak to online! I get distracted so easily, but if I talk to a person in person they can hold my attention. If someone talks to me online and takes 5minutes to reply I go do something and then forget that I was talking to them. Plus I can't multitask! Also in person you can talk about things around you and bring other people into the conversation and it feels more personal but online it's like: where do I start? ... the pain

I think I'm excellent at it. I'm better off typing my thoughts than putting them into words to project with my voice. x ~ x I stutter when I'm nervous, for example.

But there's a downside. It's not that easy to sense emotions and sarcasm through online conversations. Emoticons come in handy for that, but even then it's still sometimes difficult.

At first I thought: "What's Conversation Online?" But then I realized you just meant online conversations. Guess that answers it then.

No really are you?? I can assure you I suck at being entertaining conversation wise online, I'm a lot better at it in person.. Which is why I have very little friends online, also NO I am not posting this bc I am seeking some kind of attention, I'm curious to know if anyone understands how I feel ;3;


I'm a lot better in person too. For example, if I ever get into an argument on the internet, I can't walk away looking badass saying "It doesn't matter" or "You're not worth my time." That's how I usually end arguments in real life. Minus the "looking badass" part though...

I can attest to being terrible at a lot of things, mostly those which are important, like being accepted...

But conversation is one thing I have to admit that I am quite fair at.

If you don't believe me, just go ahead and message me. I can probably find something to talk about.

Talking to people isn't as troublesome as it is perceived, all you have to do is muster enough courage to start a convo, it's awkward to just stand there and stare or say something and returning to the silence shortly after.

If you run outta ideas, suggest another topic to discuss. You gotta start the convo, and if they aren't gonna keep it going it YOU have take the initiative to KEEP it going.

Eventually if all goes well, your new friend will be more open toward you and you two will be able to have continuous convos with ease. (time depends upon the person though, so don't rush into personal topics!)

Not rushing into personal topics is very good tip. Starting off with things of the same interest is easiest.

I am not about to pretend to be all emo and dark and all that bs -_- and say "I don't speak to people" or "I hate people" you know who you are you little babies don't lie to yourself we all need social interactions to function fully


Just to be bitchy for "irl" reasons, you need punctuation if anybody is supposed to believe you've ever made a good joke about "race or rape or something to that extreme."

Your whole deal lacks an extremely basic understanding of everything you're criticizing, especially the English language. It might be better received than what somebody who knows English says, but damn, that was awful.


it was a irl and online thing I just got side tracked on irl either way im fine at it ...you on the other hand I know for sure aren't liked by many....I don't "need" anything and as far as jokes go seems you may be one of those people who have never even told one....try speaking to more people and you might learn that there are all kinds of people who find all kinds of things funny and a joke is just that people who have a sense of humour can see the light in a dark joke and darker jokes are not for everyone neither are dirty jokes......just get of the web if you are worried about others punctuation because I and ALOT of people like the way they write/type this is not an essay nor a job this is my recreational time sooo don't try to dictate what I do or how I do it please and thank you you seem to want to try hard to prove you are well versed in the English language for some reason....oh you made me rant good for you GFY


I'm not as disliked as you think, you aren't either.

It's the things you say, man.

I thought rape was funny too for a minute. Quote me on that, I won't back away.

Google Image Search "Hank Hill humped by dolphin .gif."

I thought that was a good example of how a rape joke could be funny until I finally got it beyond the joke. Nobody cares that Hank Hill got raped by a dolphin, but it happened to fictional cartoon Hank Hill. The execution is choice.

The dark joke is funny. The darkness is nothing you should find a home in, it's something you can make fun of if you're REALLY GOOD at making fun, but it's dark because it's wrong, and your audience doesn't always get jokes.

Punctuiation: It's just not that hard, people!

I am equally horrible at conversing online or IRL. It used to bother me, and I would try and force the issue. Now I just accept that I am better served by observing and listening attentively.
