Online sex chating face to face-28

While I do not want to take this dominant view of RL communication versus online communication head on, I do want to speak in the defense of the latter. Logfiles and message histories preserve our conversations .

Rather than simply being an inferior way of communicating, I’d like to point out some specific advantages of IM communication which may or may not be obvious. In the old days, ICQ used to give you little text boxes into which you typed a message, which would be sent off and disappear from your screen.

Many people cheat online because it offers a thrill from wrongdoing without the potential pressure or guilt from an in-person encounter.

They can convince themselves that if nothing physical ever happens, it’s not really cheating.

But it’s a thorny issue - and one that must be tackled, as more and more of us turn to the online dating.
