An alternate take on this is to consider how helpful talking to people online can be for socially shy people. A man and a woman can both be socially
shy in their own ways, they can communicate a little in real life, but they can really get to a deeper and more meaningful level online.'
This might seem weird to most people, but there are plenty of socially awkward people for whom this makes sense. One reason why people are shy is that
face to face contact. They may be able to make small talk in person, but to say the things they really want to say to the other ......they're just
too shy to say it all in person. Or they just don't know how. The internet helps break down that wall and makes communication easier.
Some people do this to help "break the ice" so when the time comes that they can talk more openly to the person they like in "real life", they
don't feel so nervous anymore because they feel they know them pretty well. And they do because the online chatting was backed up by the real life
clarification of body language, eye contact, etc.....
When it's used right, the internet can help you do really amazing things.
