Are you conflicted as to whether or not to tell your friends about GaG?

Do you want to tell your friends about GaG, but can't because that would ruin the relative anonymity you love?

Do you find it hard to share advice you learned/gleaned from GaG without mentioning the site and going into details?

What would it be like if everyone in the world was on GaG? Insanity or World Peace?

  • No. I will never tell my friends about gag. The day they come here is the day I deactivate.

  • Yeah, I'm extremely hesitant to share it with my friends. I think a lot of its current appeal is a result of its small user base and I think with more people, the quality of questions and advice would decrease substantially. Plus, with a bigger user base, it would be harder to connect with other people and make friends because there would just be so many users. It's really hard to share the advice from GAG to friends and leave out where it's from! A part of me wants them to discover its radness but a larger part of me wants to keep it to myself so I can have all the fun >:)

  • No, I don't tell people. I like to have my privacy. If anyone found out about GAG and it would NOT be through me, then I would deactivate my account and create a new one where it would be a little more anonymous. My friends are awesome, but they sometimes don't understand things I am going through or how I feel on certain topics. For example, I right now have multiple crushes on people and my feelings are a little mixed around. I've been kind of jumping from guy to guy with crushes within the past few months. I kind of have a thing for 3 different people at the moment. Guy#1 - things are complicated. Guy#2 - I don't even really know if I'm into him or not, we are friends, but I think I do see him more as a friend than anything else. Guy#3 - I am starting to develop a little bit of feelings for him, but I'd rather get to know him as friends first. With guy#3 I haven't told my friends about him because I'm scared they might judge me a little for having so many crushes.

    I don't want to tell them because as soon as I do then I will feel that they will think everything I do while I'm around that guy is only because I like him. I may have a small crush on him, but that doesn't mean that I want him to be my boyfriend and I know my friends will probably make me feel a little embarrassed and I'll probably get shy around him. Due to the fact that I can't tell them, I like that I can go on GAG and talk about it and ask for advice on how to handle a situation with him since I've decided not to tell my friends and can't get advice from them. It's my outlet and I really don't want it to be discovered.

  • na not at all. the only way people would know i had a gag account is if they read my diary.
    y is because id want them to let any of my friends know if i pass away, rather than thinking I'm ignoring them for 2 years.

  • Exactly in your boat. I sometimes start talking about something I read and then shut up. I feel it would ruin my anonymity or they would wonder why on earth I was on here (I don't even know). It's my little secret :P

    If the whole world was on here, it would be insanity and us mods would find it difficult to moderate everything.

  • I kinda mentioned it to one friend but I don't plan on really telling anybody about it. Not because I have anything to hide, just because I wanna keep it to myself lol.

    It's like my little undiscovered magical safe haven. A rabbit hole if you will.

    • Is that weird seeing each other's opinions on personal stuff? Or do you avoid each other/watch yourself?

    • ?
      Not really. She's a friend so she already knows everything about me and how I think.
      Not like I have anything to hide.
      & She barely gets on, lol.
      She just looks around and stuff.

  • I wouldn't really care hahah I haven't done anything too embarrassing on here [yet]

  • I show my SO some of my responses sometimes or if the questions are funny, but other than that, there is a reason why I useba different name here than anywhere else on the internet, haha.

    I am not really conflicted. I don't plan on telling them, that would be social suicide.

    • They wouldn't be proud that you're an anti-circumcision advocate and leader of freethought? What a world.

    • Show All
    • Reddit is amazing.

    • You should watch this documentary if you haven't:

  • I shared the link from GaG on Facebook and Twitter (to get the XPer). My sister and brother (both younger) are both users here.

    I may have told one or two friends, but it's not like I'm hiding the site from them; it just never comes up in conversation very often lol.

    I'm not embarrassed about them reading what I posted; everything they will read, I'm almost certain they already know. I answer questions way more than I ask! :-P

    • Good balance

    • It's good for me, but I can understand why the ones who use this site mainly for seeking advice, may not want people they know in the real world to know about what they're asking advice about! :-P

  • I've not told anyone about it at all as I tend not to talk to people about myself much... said too much already.

    • Same. I want to tell friends, but it's better for them to discover it on their own and everything stay (mostly) anonymous.

    • Yea, plus if I told them then it would be "our" place and I want it to be my place and mine alone. Cause I'm just slightly diabolical in a Dr. Evil kind of way lol.

  • No I wouldn't want to because the more people who came on here the more trolls we would have and more policing just look at what happened to yahoo? the website is practically dead now its good that is a more low key website.

    • Secret GaGers...

    • Ja, it'd be too personal for my friends to know about this. Especially which profile is mine. There's a reason I will never post my face.

    I appreciate being able to say whatever I feel without being judged in person.
    I can block people on here, I can only try to avoid the 50% of people I know that I don't get along with.
    Ok, more like 10%

    • Agreed. Insanity and penis questions upon penis questions

    • Show All
    • But you're losing out on the Xper! You should profit off those penis questions!

    • You're right! I should try out with some comedy gold, squirrel style!

  • If I tell them, they will be sarcastic in every question/comment I make. So, no.
