Definitely a big deal. Lots of people worry and feel a little lost when talking to someone new.
Hey @bee14 @AusPsychs @cupcakes_032@mel393 @FootyFan26@LR72 @TassieGuy@Clockwork
i noticed you folks were online. You don't have to, but please feel welcome to join our chat! We'll be going till about 10pm but you can ask questions or comment any time after too if you'd like
@j95 me too! What's up with that? Why's it so easy online and just so tricky face to face?
I agree, @j95, much easier online. But in person is helpful when it's better to see their reactions and expressions.
On a scale of 1-10 how scary is it to talk to someone you have never met before?
To commence casual chat - 4
In a formal manner - 8
@j95 ah that's a good point so, if it goes pear shapped, you can just write it off and start again with someone else, but in real life, well they might see you again?
@FootyFan26 what's the difference between casual chat and formal?
