it has had little effect EXCEPT that i don't suffer from any problems when i meet people who i've got to know well online. with those people i feel thoroughly comfortable, whereas i've had some friends irl who i've known for ages yet never felt comfortable and "myself" around. perhaps they just aren't as good friends, or whatever, but i think it is down to the internet and the ability to interact to the extent that i know these people thoroughly, and am confident with them.
