Before I joined Weddingbee, I was under the impression that message boards often bring out our inner b*tch – people would post comments they would never make in real life. On this site, though, I feel like it’s the opposite – I tend to be more sarcastic in real life and I find myself toning it down sometimes on the boards 🙂 So that got me thinking if anyone else feels like they act a little differently here on the boards.

I’m pretty much the same on both. I’m more sarcastic in real life, but I don’t do that on weddingbee mainly because it’s hard to read sarcasm over the internet!

I think I’m the same on both. I agree with amanda.lynn that I have less sarcasm online because it just comes across as mean in print.

I really think that I am much nicer here than in real life. lol. I get fed up with people easily and on here I can ignore someone if I don’t want to deal with it.

I’m pretty much the same, although I think I’m a little more shy on WB than I am in real life.

i voted depends…but i take it back. i’m never mean on the internet, and i’m not neccesarily mean in person either, but sometimes i can be a bit more huffy if i’m frustrated or annoyed. on the internet, i have time to actually think before i type and can always edit. IRL, my mouth sometimes moves faster than my thoughts. :/

I agree with @amanda & @missAsB…I’m less sarcastic on weddingbee then in real life. Besides that I can honestly say I’m the same both in real life and online/WB. I’ve got a very sweet, friendly personality that when I was a bit younger people took advantage of it but it is very true to me. In person I am very outgoing, maybe a bit more so then on WB.

I’m the same @”home” or on WB, however I’m more vocal here, in person, I tend to mind my own business…lol

I am a little more sarcastic in real life but sarcasm doesnt seem to translate that well via text. I am not any less friendly in person tho. I always try to maintain a very positive upbeat attitude as much as possible.

I’m much less sarcastic on weddingbee, b/c it’s so easy to misunderstand electronic forms of communication. In real life, I can get across that I’m kidding when I say something mean with non-verbal cues. On weddingbee, that ain’t happening.
Honestly, the nice manners on weddingbee are the reason that I participate in the these boards. On most boards, flame wars reign, and that gets old fast.

I am way nicer here than in real life – I am very dry and sarcastic and brutally honest!
However, that wouldn’t go over to well on the boards in text and so if I don’t have anything nice to say I don’t say anything at all! 😉

Actually I pretty much do the same thing in real life and on WB when it comes to people I am friends with but not BFFs with. If I have something nice to say I say it…if I dont…I just dont comment.
