    So why is it that I can BBM or text people and have conversations for hours, yet when I see that person face to face I have nothing to say. Anybody feel like this?

    A little bit; mostly because when you are texting you can take time to think, which you cannot irl because that pause can be mistaken for something else
    eg:
    Her: does this dress make me look fat?
    Him: ... (3 seconds)
    Her: You think I'm ugly?? T_T

    this is among worst case scenarios, but it still applies.


    another thing is that the TONE can completely change the meaning sometimes, alongside other body language.
