How to be funny? (7)

There's this girl I like. But the problem is, my personality is a bit to dull irl, though I really get her to laugh and have fun when outside irl (chat etc). I've semi-confessed to her through my blog (since she reads it), but concluded that I need some time to be a guy that she'll really like.

What makes the difference between your dull IRL self and your witty online self? Why can't you be like that in real life?
You need to find this factor and defeat it.

You are more funny, because you are more relaxed and have more control and time to think online. In order to be funny irl, you just need to be more relaxed, and practice, practice, practice. As you practice, things become easier, and you need to think less, it just comes naturally to you.

Ah, you mentioned that real-life conversation is more fast-paced. Sorry for having missed that the first time.
So, is that the main problem? Does it really take you more than a few seconds to come up with a witty reply? Surely that wouldn't work in a chat either.

^ This, too. Practice will make it easier to be funny on the spot.
Maybe real time chatting would be a good intermediate step between blogging/forum posts/anything else where you can take all the time you want, and real life. If you've already achieved your full funniness potential in real time chatting, all the better.

OP here again.

Dang, today's a bad bad. She apparently has read the confession post and she kept on evading me today. But thanks for the advices and replies guys! I'll keep them in mind.
