Just passing along another piece of advice I got somewhere, which is:
"Don't take advice from anyone who isn't where you want to be."
There's a lot of pessimism I see on here about relationships, beating the "friend zone" and about attracting the ones you want into your life. I would guess that a lot of these people are not in relationships with the ones they want themselves, or are not in relationships at all. I'm not in a relationship myself, but I'm not going to go and say it can't be done.
"The people who say it cannot be done should not get in the way of the people who are doing it."
I'll answer with many questions I read here in my mind. The advice one of my teachers in HS gave us when we graduated, most of us going to college & university:
"Remember, when you're in college and you have a real good BF or GF and you break up, you're in deep sh*t." (I strongly suspect he had lived a negative experience himself) And it was the only advice he gave us. Looking back and around me I can only say the man was damn right.
Aren't all of these questions, personal. If they weren't, they wouldn't be online doing it. Most people have a hard time talking about personal things in real life, so they come online and do it. Therefore all questions SHOULD be anonymous, right?
Speaking of answers, why are you not allowing anonymous answers for this, when you just said "people should go anonymous when asking their question". Hypocritical, yes?
One piece of advice to the new users, would be to listen to the song "Don't Question My Heart" by Saliva, about why some of us are still here
The One big thing I would say is: If you are going to Ask a Question, please be very specific in your explanations so myself, or others Here are Best to help you further. With This I mean, tell All the facts so that after, when wanting to give us an answer, there are No hidden surprises that should have been included in your story. This throws me a small curve ball, and although I do quite well here, I would like to do better by getting All the facts up front, Not After the fact. Other than that, new Gagers, enjoy, have fun, everyone here is cool and no one really knocks anyone else's opinions... Everyone is entitled to their Own opinions, and may the best guy or girl win for 'Most Helpful'... xx
I would tell them to make sure they keep their profile private because when I first joined I got bombarded with random emails from men and women bringing their forum drama to my private profile. I really didn't appreciate that because the drama was about someone else
