I enjoy real life a lot more
Mostly because I am too cool to fit in with most of you
I have to say that at my current situation Real Life is almost as good as it gets, it just misses €600.000 to be perfect :P
But I can relate to the TS too.
And to be perfectly honest, my (social)life really is a big mixture of the on- and offline world.
And to be even more honest, my Real Life would not be nearly as good as it is now if it wasn't for the online world.
I have met a lot of my friend online due to different games and communities.
Those are friends I first met online, then met offline and they are now very good friends I speak with and meet up with on a regular basis.
And last but most certainly not least, a couple of year ago I went through a rather dark period, I fled online to escape it and some people online really helped me get through it.
I am 100% sure that if it wasn't for those people I would say I would answered here that I prefer my Virtual Life over my real one.
During that period I also met the most wonderful girl ever to walk into my life (yes, I met her online) and because of her my Virtual Life will never be as good as my Real Life ever again cause she's now my girlfriend and we're very happy together for more than a year already
So as a conclusion to this way too long and personal text:
I love my Real Life and my Virtual Life because of all the friend I made all over the world online and met offline too. But I prefer my Real Life.
I prefer the internet. I have many more friends online than I do in real life because I'm a social misfit and in general just try to blend in as much as possible... The internet changed me into a bitter, pessimistic, cynical individual that hates humanity, but I like the internet and I like my status as a bitter, pessimistic, cynical individual that hates humanity. I hate being around people that are all sunshine and rainbows and are optimistic.
Ugh, my life sucks, I'd so want to have a virtual life to restart, i just want to leave this world.
is the best like no one ever was...
Papa Bear to all units! Red Dog! Red Dog! Casualty count is high! Move to reinforce outpost immediately, over!
I've grown to dislke the net rather a bit nowadays in a fair sense due to drama and trolls i've encountered over time on google.....and its really bugged me mentally at such a deep level. Espesally as I never really got to see much of the outside world growing up to begin with....(being an aspie is rough )
All my friends (outside my family, so far, pretty much...) are basicly online, though. I don't really have any irl friends....yet. But online I now have a friend who like gets axiety attacks over me even MENSIONING having a crush on riku from kingdom hearts now (just over some argument we had a few days ago. before then, she apperently didn't seem to have a problum at all.....or at least i hope she didn't).
I can't stand the thought that I have to like act like a whole different person around some people now online.....it really bugs me. I can't stand being controlled....At least, in real life, things don't have to work like some kind of forum. And being more quiet about things is probably a good idea. I'm sure if you talk too much in real life, people are a lot more apt to be annoyed. Could prove to teach better self control....in real life, there's just not so much 'obsessing' over big interests as there is finding commen ground more as a whole. Not like you can re-read posts or anything. I guess, I would feel a bit more secure and okay just being me. And there might just be that much less drama as there was the last few days....
Overall, I plan on going online less now.....and the real life more.
Though, maybe earlier this year, I would of voted the net without a doubt, maybe. There really is a lot of fun things to do.....and, making friends is really easy, too. For me anyways.
But, i'd like to give the outside world more of a chance now.....i'm sick of feeling so.. sheltered. :/ Which is often how i've felt being online so much. I'm not really seeing the whole real wide world I feel I should be seeing.....I guess I don't know what else to comment now, though. Its cool to hear a lot of people here actually prefer real life. With my confused thoughts about the outside world till now, I guess, its a bit shocking/confusing to me. But i'll learn better...
But, yeah, it'd be nice to become closer to maybe some kind of person in my town. If I actually am willing to try....
Even if some people around here are just plain snotty. But, meh. I don't wanna fear the darkness. I believe anyone can have the good brought out in them....trust me, its better that way~

(all out, overall, yeah, we live in some messed up little town....)
But, yeah. I wanna try to use the internet for social connections less now. It can just seem so...dramatic for me. Sometimes it can just feel more fun to play video games and stuff for a good few hours, even if I do, indeed, love my friends and many other people I am blessed enouth to meet on here~
Here goes my 2 cents now~
I definitely have more people I can relate to on the internet. I'd definitely say I like my virtual life more.. Meh, just my opinion
I like both.
Real Life is fun in the course of embarrassing myself, making friends, chatting and eating like ****. (and playing music too! Pizza parties ftw!)
Virtually I can relate to more people, and it's much more convenient. And I love the forums!
The difference is that I'm not really a hardcore gamer or anything. I just get bored easily... My parents care about me being n the Internet for 'too long' to the point that it can be somewhat irritating lol

online firends are cool and all but once you get close enough to them, it just gets more depressing as time passes, knowing it is highly unlikely that you will ever get the chance to meet them. once i found the right people i pretty much completely converted to real life relationships.
Oh dear, how do people type so much in such a 'one or the other' simple question topic?
I would say my real life. Even though my problems and flaws does not apply online
Saying sorry won't change anything
To be honest, I prefer being in virtual life because I have so many friends over there. But in real life, my little sister and my parents are my 'close friends', in real world, I don't have best friend. But, in virtual world, I would not tell my real name because it's private. I don't want to be chased by outside people.

Pros and cons to both...
But to be perfectly honest, as much as i love online...Online life is very...uhm well its hard for us to use effectively. Iguess you could say we're not made to do things through the internet.
When I say that, I mean we lose many key factors in how we interpret things...no body language, no tone of voice, no social pressure (as much as i fudgen dislike, I understand the use of it. >3>)...All we have is words. Its why I ALWAYS use emotes...because i want others to get the right idea of how i reacted in real life. xD;...
As for a preference of mine...I'm nuch better at online life. No seriously, I can't argue back for shiz in real life... (I mean like, I hate being pressured for a response to an arguement right away. My mind doesn't work that way. I prefer to slow reason through things, and most importantly, check our previous posts. A lot of times arguements turn into back and worth about this and that...Memory is ****ing useless in that situation. >_>...lol You said this! No, I said this! Thats not how I remember it! And then the arguement turns into a fight, or leaves everybody with a horrible taste in their mouth. Not knowing who was right and who was wrong...While also feeling enraged at the person you are arguing with. Being on the internet for most of my intelligent life, I can't help but feel so god damn terrible everytime something like that happens...
But that forced restraint ends up being a good thing in many cases...Honestly, the internet would be better at this if half of the people on it showed some restraint. >_>
but thats just me rambling on....

It truly depends on the user. for me, balance is necessary. Yes, I like using the internet too. Yet I enjoy moments in real life too. I'm a travelling guy you could say. Watch tron legacy and the matrix for a better understanding about the topic
I like both. Both have their good and bad sides, so I'm not gonna choose one over the other.
I prefer both of them. The virtual life has a vast database of knowledge and I get to relate to more people. But it's nice to get out of the house and have fun, with or without friends.
Relatedly, I think it's rather revealing how many people get so defensive when someone says they're potentially too absorbed in the internet and its ability to let them escape to unhealthy extents. Especially when, in that same post, there's a line advising you not to let everything on an internet full of strangers and anonymity bother you -- irony at its finest.
