Myself, I started here years ago. Different account.
I was sheltered, pretty ignorant on how relationships/sex worked. I was also really shy and didn't get out much. So I basically assumed that asking girls questions on GAG was some kind of supplement for actually learning lessons in real life experience.
I also used to believe there was some kind of rigid formula a guy must meet in order to attract women.
When alls said and done, 95% of what I learned in GAG, I could've learned in real-life in half the time. But I still enjoyed my time here nonetheless.
yeah. i dont think i'll be staying here for much longer. I've been growing up over the past year while this place is pretty much staying the same.
Haha I was just thinking about this the other day! I went back to my old questions and answers and it just made me shake my head.
I've been on for 5 years now (since I was 15-16) and my views have changed incredibly radically as I learned more and more about life and science. A few examples I can easily point out are as follows. I used to be a christian and an apologist, I am now an atheist. I used to be an intelligent design theorist, I now know how incredibly stupid that is. I used to be more of a pessimist, I am now slightly more optimistic. Umm... besides that though my first for knowledge and love of science have always been present, but when I was younger I was indoctrinated into a belief and of course believed them because I was only told the one thing. Now that I am able to see more and know more I think my views are much more "factual" or sound.
I came at 19. Virgin. Didn't have experience, never had kissed a guy before and was wondering how to talk to a shy guy. Now at 23 I have been in a 4 year relationship and have a child. I was a freshman in college living in the dorms and my only worry was my grades. Now I have my own family, own my own home and car. Life has changed for the better
My written skills have decreased a lot. I used to be very eloquent, now I only write a few sentences full of grammar mistakes. On the bright side, though, I still don't give a fuck about being a horrible commenter.
I'm not sure if I didn't actually know this but I learned that everyone in the world is human. Men and women have their own personal insecurities and doubt about themselves. Even though I don't personally know anyone hear and people can answer questions anonymously, this site is pretty transparent.
