I don't usually have trouble with it, I've turned to people online for comfort for a very long time now, and this time around I've gotten much closer to the people I've met recently.
I feel when talking to people in person, there is this very fake thing about me when I am talking to them until I know them for a decent amount of time time. And even then. I usually am very weird, and just dumb, and I guess this is like a weird way of trying to handle talking to people, it's hard to be genuine. I suppose we all do that, but I hate being ingenuine, I really do.
While talking to some one online this is not as present, I am incredibly open these days, and can just spill soykaf out like mad, all my thoughts and feelings, and in this way it's so much more genuine, especially if I can find some people who are some what likeminded, or I at least understand their mind set. There are some that actually kind of intimidate me, because I just feel they are superior people, not because they act like it, but they just seem to have so much confidence and really know what they are talking about. This is getting off on a tangent a bit.
As for me warming up to other people, this often is a factor, but only with some people. With people who's ideaology I've always looked down on I do take a while, not because I look down on them for it, but rather because I need time for them to help me understand their way of thinking, but most the people I've met seem to reflect really well and actually have thought put into their understandings, so I warm up fast.
Also this sort of ingenuine way of acting I talked about earlier is often very present in some others I meet. Often what they say reveals something completely different than they meant to. It can be hard meeting some people because this facade is very present online still, but over time those people become more genuine, like in real life, when you become friends
As an example, there is this tumblr person in a group chat of some buddies, she was super edgy, likes edgy music, is a satanist, frequents wattpad, doesn't even know what an imageboard is. I hated her at first, actually. But as time went on I did warm up to her, and I no longer hate her, because what she says lacks this edgy facade, mostly, it's become a little more genuine.
As for people warming up to me, I can't tell. Like I said on the internet I am more genuine, but for some that may be reason it takes time to warm up to me? I mean I'm not "brutally honest", I won't just tell them that things are all stupid for the sake of being "real", but rather it's to easy for me to just start spilling soykaf, and talking about a lot of very personal feelings and struggles right from the get-go. On top of that, I am very insecure, I constantly feel every one hates me. More recently I've noticed this feeling, but being aware that it is an insecurity and that it's not an accurate representaion of how I should be feeling doesn't mean I don't still feel that way. So who knows.
