This is not in-person chess. This is correspodence chess, quite different, almost not the same game as over-the-board or blitz chess. The key of succes is in analyzing, taking time, checking your variations multiple times, recheking your checking, finding information in references like databases or books. A lot of people like to play here like it is a blitz site (me included, sometimes), but there are specialized sites for that.
I think chess.com has the option of switching on touch-move in correspodence games, but I do not like the idea, at least if touch-move would become predefined and not an option to choose.
