why do you act immature toward an immature member and say disturbing things about the under 18 people? If you dislike them couldnt you just stop getting on this site? i mean no body truthfully cares about your problems you post.
The fact that your retort to this issue you perceive is to tell us that "no body truthfully cares about your problems you post" is the very reason why there is a dislike between the age groups.
I hardly see the over 18 crowd as immature in comparison to the younger members. It's just that the issues that the younger crowd has are issues we've all seen before and when we tell the younger members about the situations that are, in fact, essentially the same, the younger group attacks us with claims of how their situation is so different and then proceeds to ignore all advice and then three days later we see them posting a question about an issue that arose that would never have occurred had they listened to the advice from the elder group in the first place.
Eventually it becomes annoying and we want to wash our hands of it.
So you will forgive us for being skeptical of the issues faced by the younger members as it's doubtful how much of the advice given will even be listened to.
Haha don't worry about them babe just keep doin you :) there will always be someone who doesn't like it and there will always be someone who does!
For the most part unders bother the older people on hear because they have simpler lives and give simpler answers and ask simpler questions (it isn't always true but most of the time it is) so older people are like kid I got shit to deal with here. It's not you, their just frustrated by their own lives and it's even more frustrating that your life isn't super complicated yet... Also it raises morality issues about how much to tell you because we aren't your parents, and we want to help you, but how do we know where the line is and what advice to give? You're so young we don't want you as screwed up as us (even though you will be one day! No worries about that)
So just keep on truckin! Be you! Be smart! Be safe! And ignore the haters:)
Of course not. Just because someone is young doesn't mean I value their input any less. I have seen a great many mature and thoughtful under 18 users here, some more so than the older users. I'm glad there are younger users here who can get help with any problems they may be having or talk to older users who may have more life experience and can give them advice.
Similarly, I have seen many under 18 users give other users solid advice as well. I could say there are plenty of people younger than me who have experienced a great deal more than I have and would be more equipped to give advice on a certain subject than I would be. I don't judge anyone by their age, I judge them based on the way they behave and present themselves.
I'm sorry you feel that the older users here look down on the younger members but truly, not all of us feel that way.
Stereotypical under 18 girl: Oh my gawww , does he like me? The other day my crush told me I was the hottest chick in school and he's from Australia and he threw sour patch kids in my face. Then he kissed me on the cheek and said he liked my friend Lizzie more and Lizzie likes him too and so does Shelly but, Shelly also has a boyfriend. So does he like me?
Under 18 guy: Is my penis too big for my age? Im 14. It's 3.75 inches erect.
That's what a good bit of the "under 18" questions are flooded with. Of course not everyone is like that but, people get annoyed with the kids that asks those types of questions repeatedly and it makes the other teens look bad.
"i mean no body truthfully cares about your problems you post." This is the type of immaturity that renders me fearful of interacting with the underage crowd. That being said, I don't mind them being on here and some are quite enjoyable/mature. Not you from the looks of it, but some. The only problem I have is when they ask overly sexual questions (NOT health related) and older people give them pervy advice and what not.
Honestly, I've seen people under 18 posting more mature questions/answers than myself or even older adults, so I have nothing against them. I've even seen some very well-thought, witty opinions posted by people under 18. I try not to judge people based on their age. So what if a 15 year old has more life experience than a 19 year old? Should we judge the 15 year old more harshly? I don't think so. Actions and words should determine the way a person can be perceived. Not their age.
Because under 18 kids talk about unrealistic things like "He looked at me in class, does he like me?" "He has a girlfriend, does he like me?" etc... They are very immature, and you guys are asking us to make fun of you. " i mean no body truthfully cares about your problems you post. " Since you don't care about our posts why should we care about yours... Grow up LB.
I have no problem with any age group. I do get concerned about the fact that this site has a lot of sexual topics & that could potentially be very young teens/kids here. But like I always say, if you didn't let teens have an age group in here, then they'd pretend to be older & you'd give advice you probably shouldn't. I don't mean to be mean, but I wouldn't recommend to anyone to have sex in high school, so I generally won't answer under 18's questions about sex in high school, unless it's to advice them to wait. Obviously it's your choice, but I just feel like it's a huge benefit to wait until 18 (more mature/life experience).
I was going to say something to that extremely stupid part of your question, but since you asked to disregard it, ok.
I don't hate you kids. I just hate some of the things you kids post. Many of the rate mes, and the stupid questions from attention whores are from under 18 kids. Not to mention some under 18s think they know everything and are agressive on here and attacks those who disagree. My point is, many of the under 18s are immature and I sometimes have trouble taking them seriously. Not to mention the very young kids like 13/14 asking about sex... Which I find disturbing...
However, if the under 18 user proved to not be immature, then I don't hate them at all. On the other hand, I also hate over 45 users who are immature and narrowminded.
That's odd... I don't hate people based on age... I do dislike people who post questions about fantasy incest related things.. and swear that's their real life situation.. it's gross.
I clearly do not think the same as an 18 year old or younger, but that doesn't mean I hate them.. But also keep in mind that this is the internet and sometimes people get bored and they want to troll or pick on others just for a laugh for their own entertainment.. so if you don't like that, then maybe your'e the one who shouldn't be on here if you're too touch and too picky and too offended? It's just a thought... Ignore it or deal with it.. don't cry about it. :]!
Weren't you all once a teenager yourselves. In this years we are still developing into maturity, some of us faster then others, that's for sure. maybe the ones you see on this site and similar others are just the over exaggerated types that take everything to over the top. However not all of us are like this, their is that stereotype going around that all teenagers are just the same, you know were not, but maybe the majority you see are that based. You adult as well should not take everything we say to the wrong stand point, most of us don't know were the future is for us, you've been though this process yourself, the fear that comes with growing up and taking responsibility for yourself is to much. Small steps that we take look like gigantic leaps of faith. I wonder when i do grow up if i'll feel this way among teens, and that maybe definitely. What we must all do is chill... Now i know we can't stop teens from being immature, you can't stop one nature... all i say is just tolerate it with an open mind, knowing you were once them, ignoring the advice of elder ( you know you have... don't lie now)
That was kind of mean to hate on us like that.. hey, I personally don't care who uses the site, I mean, it's not my choice. Try not to make broad generalizations, and if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all! (:
Yes, they are annoying. You give them advice, then they'd argue because it's not what they wanted to hear. Then make big deals out of nothing "s/he didn't hug me today, what could this possibly mean?" Gosh!
It's not that we don't care, it's just that they are so ignorant of practical advice, and then bitch and cry when a situation arises that could have been avoided had they listened to us in the first place. Everything you go through... guess what, we were there, so we know what we are talking about.
Even though I am under eighteen, I think I understand where it comes from. It's frustrating when Under 18 people comment on questions in which they have little to no experience to share from or they don't say anything constructive.
I think when people ask questions that are really important to them, the last thing they need is a Under 18'er that could very well be thirteen, commenting with a sense as if they could relate to it, and give nonconstructive advice probably gotten somewhere off the internet of TV.
I could be wrong though. I've done the exact same things, but try to answer constructively.
The very first day I joined this site I answered a ton of questions and by the end of the day I had already gotten some BAs and a message that said my advice was great for being under 18. I don't think I'm the only knowledgeable, logical member who's under 18. I see way more under 18 members who are at least trying to give good advice.
I don't think anyone has faith that any member under 18 can use logic to answer these questions... that's the problem.
I don't have problem with people because they fit into a subset of people, such as an age group. I DO have a problem with kids who think they have the world figured out and think what the read in books makes them an authority on this or that subject. They think they know better than people who have first - hand experience, it's annoying.
Really, I appreciatehaving the wide variety of age groups we have on here. I see great words come out of each group. Naturally some opinions will be less relevant, and sometimes it seems divided by the age group. But I like the <18 group, even if sometimes @CheeseLoveWhiz stereotypes seem painfully accurate.
Because people love feeling superior to others, and age for that is easily accessible. Also, I remember what I was like when I was under 18, I was an even bigger dumbass than I am now! So I take under 18 opinions with a grain of salt.
A lot of teenagers ask questions then get all mad when u tell them what they don't wanna hear. Or they jump to conclusions waaaay to quick. "He said hi to me today, does he like me?" It's not all teenagers but it happens a lot.
I actually care about other peoples problems. That's why I made my account. I've actually never had a problem with the under 18 crowd. But you sure as hell aren't helping your stereotype to the people on here that do have problems with your age.
