This is gonna be 1 of the most self-shaming topics I guess...and I want to share my story...so the description's gonna be kinda long for my standards...and I'm gonna drop the "texting language" and "basicallies" just for the sake of this post, in order to make it more readable...so let's go....
To begin with, chances to "trigger" GAG via some search engine, is by searching for websites about relationships/dating advice (the original purpose of GAG) or search for similar keywords like for example "does he/she like me?", in order to make GAG pop-up in your search engine.
So for a guy like me who's not into this relationships/dating thing, chances to trigger GAG are minimum.
I was really LUCKY that I had some issue (yes i'm talking about my notorious thing about shrinking in height. I was very desperate about this 2 years ago) and thanks to Google, GAG popped up (I googled "how to shrink in height" or sth similar)
Oh well anyway...Ironically topics about relationships and dates were never my thing....And those questions about those stuff made me feel bored tbh. But GAG made me love them, and now I've learned some things about each gender's behavior when they are in a relationship!
Anyway, as I've mentioned numerous times here lately, I really REALLY hate those websites I used before joining GAG and I believe I wasted my time in them EVEN if they were closer to my original interests.
The main reasons are:
- The people in those websites were dull compared with GAG's crowd
- They were older than my age most of them, and I used to fake my age because of it.
- During my teens I used to find teen crowd dull, and prefer having conversations with adults who were over 30. Now I rather have conversations with teens than adults tbh. I really regret about it, otherwise I'd embrace sites with teen crowd by the time.
- Most of them were guys. Really regret about it as well, because it's interesting to see females' point of view in some community.
- No "real" benefit from the use of these websites. And by that I mean "no Xper...no Gift Cards"
So I believe I wasted my years there ,instead of using GAG. But you would ask me...."How the hell would you trigger GAG if you're not into relationships/dating advice sites?"
There comes yahoo-answers....now I realise that yahoo-answers is the 2nd best site after GAG, but by the time I was teen, I found it kinda silly, because I prefered by the time having "serious conversations" with those dull people (as I see them now, from my current point of view) So if I used yahoo-answers, they might suggest me GAG as an alternative....and there you have it.
If I embraced by the time this Q&A thing that I considered silly back then (fuck!) then now, I might have ended up in GAG much earlier, and might have earned tons of gift cards, instead of wasting my best years having conversations with stupid dump people (who were over 35 most of them) about politics and religions....earning NOTHING. Now I don't give a shit about those topics.
And no I'm not only interested in earning Xper and Gift Cards, as some people assume here. Yeah I'm interested about those stuff as well (who doesn't eh? ) but not only. I love the people around here, even if we have argued some times.
If there's 1 mistake in my life I won't forgive is this....the fact that I didn't try to search about GAG earlier. And by the fact that my mindset was totally FUCKED UP during my teens/early adulthood.
Not to mention that I wasn't as active as I'm now when I joined GAG...Another mistake that I terribly regret. Back then when I joined Q&A sites were kinda "inaccessible" to me, since I was more used to fora (forums), and I had a hard time getting used to this form. It took me like a full year to start being an active GAGer and getting familiar with the crowd here.
And now the best I can do is to devote myself here, all day and night, to make-up for my lost years.
Devoting myself here in GAG I feel like my soul's getting cleansed day by day...but damn, still my internet past haunts me....shit, I wish I could erase it.
Ooooh well, enough self-shaming...back to GAG now.
Love you all and thanks for spending your time reading it. <3
