The whole idea of the AdultFriendFinder craze seems to be annonymous fun. But to me, the fun we're all looking for really shouldn't be annonymous. There's always some sort of bond formed when two people come together. As much as we hate to admit it, people are joined together physically, spiritually and emotionally.
But with this annonymity given to us by the internet (and forced onto most of us by the Friend Finder's rules and costs) how do we know what we are really getting?
I myself assume a different persona online. Even if it's just chatting to my closest friends, there's something a little different. Something that wouldn't come out in any other forum, but the internet. Maybe its the detachment of using words instead of sounds. Or the lack of ability to express emotions further than simple smiley faces. Or even the bad typography that can lead to misinterpretations.
No matter what, what we get online is not what we meet in real life. Ever.
People talk real dirty on here. They say they'll do this with you... do that with you. But when it comes down to it, when you're in a room, just the two of you, in person, awkward silence, are you the same person as you promised to be online?
