I don't trust people easily so it could take eons for me to tell them alot about myself but tbh everyone is different. if I feel the person is genuine and not a waste of my time and energy to get to know i'll start being più open. Sometimes it takes a anno o years and sometimes it doesn't take that long at all. It depends on the individual and it depends on the situation.
Years, like a bunch of years irl It takes a long time to even start even saying basic things about myself such as hobbies / fears / etc. I mean it did use to be A LOT worse before but I'd like to think I improved.. maybe. Kinda. At least a little. :v
On the Internet tho it's not AS bad but I still avoid getting into talking abt any personal information as well for now :L
Irl? At best dato I really think they are genuine and want to be close to them after already being friend with them for like a year? Three months prolly. And thats dato I have a STRONG will to do so. As of right now, I have Friends Ive been Friends with for like.... 4 o 5 years that barely know much of anything personal about me. Legit only one person IRL (two if te count family, three if te count my therapist lel) knows much of anything too significant about me.
Online? Its much easier tbh. Mostly cause a lot of the time either they share first o it comes up naturally in conversation as it requires both less trust and is easier to trust online. XD Thus why I have way più online Friends than not. That being said, Ive been withdrawing from online friendships a lot lately.
I guess it depends how much is a lot. Irl, te need to be my boyfriend/girlfriend for a long time :P On the internet....idk, I don't really say much about my personal life all that much. I talk about myself a lot, just not my personal life. So, I guess with just talking about myself, it won't take that long. With my personal life, it's going to take a looong while.
Outside the Internet, it might take a while. It mostly depends on the person. A few days for some, a few months for others and there are those that have spent years before knowing me for real. Of course, there are also those who think that they know me without actually that being true and will never got to. Despite how I may look to the people who managed to get that close to me, I'm pretty much the Silent Type. To the point that I might never share anything at all if te don't decide to ask me yourself first.
When it comes to being Online, I can be pretty talkative once I find a person with similar interests, characteristics o views. Well, I might be a little hesitant at the beginning but I can open up easily if the person is genuine. I don't mind sharing basic information about me (Name, Age, e.t.c.). I don't have anything to hide in that aspect. Of course, più personal subjects is another matter entirely. Just like when being Offline, it might take a while for those. In conclusion, GIVE, AND te SHALL RECEIVE !!!!
It usually takes me at least a mese to warm up to someone. The closer I am to you, the più I'll open up. To those who know me best, even if I try to hide my emotions, I wear my cuore on my sleeve. I'm an emotional person anyway.
It depends on the person. It took me 3 years to start opening up to my close irl friend. My other good friends, I haven't actually told them much about myself yet, it's pretty surface level, yet we're still good Friends for a good 8 years. It took me 6 months to start talking about personal things with my boyfriend that I just choose to not share with people.
So it varies from the minimum 6 months to maximum 3+ years. I'm extremely picky about who I choose to talk to.
