Speak Out : From Mr. Perfect To Mr. Jerk
What is it about being online that makes some men turn from Mr. Perfect to Mr. Jerk? For some reason as soon as they get in front of a computer, the transformation begins.
In the real world they are a nice, courteous people who say “excuse me” when they run into someone, who smile at strangers and who talk to people on the train. When they get home they go online and become Mr. Hyde. Some guys send them smiles and they block them. Someone they don’t find attractive says they are hot and they ignore them. They set up a date and decide not to go without telling the other guy.
Why the difference? I think some people don’t look at being online as real, I mean they obviously know they are talking with real people but they don’t see their actions as having any consequences.
I live in a different reality where the online world coexists with the real world and we are all the same people. Some guys don’t feel this way. For them the online world and the real world are two different things with two different realities.
I can see keeping some things separate, like who on the train needs to know you like dick up your ass? No one. But everyone deserves to be treated with respect on and off line! Everyone. Except of course for those crazy stalkers, just block them and move on….
