I have a hard time saying anyone is hot or attractive... I have a hard time saying a lot of things. Recently I have been using facebook a bit more than I usually do when school is in.

I find that it's a practice on being social. I'm awkwardly saying things I normally would, telling jokes, and things like that. I have rubbed some the wrong way with my lack of social ease but...others are kind.

Does anyone else experience something similar or different to this? Like being able to speak up more?

I'm addicted to facebook because I never leave my house.

Yeah I never understood that. How difficult is it to take 2 minutes to reply to a wall post?

Anyways to the OP, yeah I can be more social online, but I dont feel it helps me learn to be more social. If anything I find it more frustrating than real life. Mostly because online I have to wait for people to reply, if at all, and some people can take weeks to get back with you.

Well, I'm a part of different interest groups on there and it has allowed me to meet and speak to different people... Some I don't like, some I'm awkward with, and some I really get along with.

maybe they're just having a hard time thinking of the proper response...

i try not to take Facebook too seriously

maybe it's because i lived 45 years without it

but for me, it's just to have fun - strictly on my own terms
