Do you have more drama in your online life or your real life?
Or perhaps equal amounts in both?

4. At least you have somewhere to escape
Hope whatever it is IRL gets better.

2. Until recently, I'd have said more online drama.
Unfortunately right now there is too much emotionally draining drama IRL for me, thus the escapism.

5. Sorry to hear that
There's always people hear to listen if you ever need to talk.

10. I have NO drama in my real life
I recently had an outbreak of drama happen online because I got involved with and trusted the w-r-o-n-g people, and that will not happen again. Live and learn.

11. No drama in either.
Real life is peaceful & serene.

Online life is what I do for fun. When it becomes less than fun, I turn it off.

12. I seem to have never ending drama...argh!... It finds me.
It's always something and it's always jarring to me!
You'd think I'd have learned by now to stay calm
but I can't seem to do that... It's upsetting.
I don't like freaky things happening out of the blue!
It's annoying as hell!

I had some heavy drama with some online, longtime,
so-called 'friends', a while back but I've moved on.
I guess that's what I get for volunteering.
It really saddened me, as I met quite a few in person
but things change, as they say.

In my real life, things seem to happen, at a steady
pace, and I'm never relaxed, it seems.
Always waiting for the other shoe to fall.
And it always does!! lol!

Sometimes I yell, "Make it stop!!!" :rofl:

But really it isn't funny. I need some peace.

Maybe I need a vacation!?! Alone! ;)

14. A fair bit on my 'real' life, at various times,
and my job often keeps things pretty high on the surreal-o-meter, especially during work hours.

More online drama lately than ever for me, perhaps, with some revelations of unbelievably bad behavior that resulted in good from one quarter and, from another quarter, with me getting burned by a sick someone here who stalked me across the Internet, lied rather viciously about me and our non-relationship, and has lately taken to attacking me and my friends and acquaintances via PM while publicly whining every day about how poorly she's treated by people she should not have trusted, perhaps the most massive case of 'projection' (and outright lying) I've ever been privy to.

You know: the usual.

15. I have way too much shit goin on IRL
to care much for online BS.

Going to court, knowing I'll be convicted for some shit in a few months, having relationship problems.... yeah everything else seems pretty fucking petty when it comes to folks online.

16. I wouldn't say "drama" per se
IRL I have plenty of stress, but no real drama. Online there's some frustration/irritation but no drama.

17. In the past, I have had friends who sought drama constantly.
They are no longer friends. I just cannot see the appeal.

I am lucky - my life is drama-free these days.

NOTHING happens in my offline life.

I hesitate to say "real" life because that implies I do not mean anything I say online.

29. my life is almost completely without drama, we hit a few bumps now and then
but those are few and far between. I think living far away from my extended family is partially why, i don't get sucked into their drama.

But I find that it is more difficult to do so in real life. I have more control over what I say and do online.

46. I guess equal amounts
Seeing as I think drama is hilarious and ergo do not care, I think it sort of ceases to be drama, ergo I have very little in either, despite others flailing hilariously.

51. My 'real life' has been chaos, drama, and insanity for at least 20 years...
online is calm and serenity comparatively
