  • Sometimes you can read a person's intentions or feelings, but not always.I was talking to a guy I like on AIM one time (there was mutual interest), and I made a sarcastic comment, which I thought nothing of since I'm really sarcastic. I found out months later that he thought I hated him because he took the comment seriously.Moral of the story: Consider how something will come off before you write it, because people can't hear your tone of voice or read your body language over the internet.
