All I see now are questions about dick size, who's pretty and who's ugly, questions about the ideal male and female physique, and desperate guys asking women to be their girlfriends.
I want to come on here and not feel less and less confident about myself. I want to fit in, and not feel like shit because I don't measure up to any of these people on here. I feel so ugly compared to these beautiful people on here...
Since when is GirlsaskGuys a dating website? I thought it was a site used to get advice from the opposite gender? Why do people suddenly care about who's pretty on the site and who's not? It doesn't make any sense.
The site is a lot more communal than other Q&A sites like yahoo answers. People know each other well on here, and its a lot easier to form friendships on here than on other sites. Frankly, i like that aspect of GAG and I don't particularly want that to change. If you're feeling left out, then you've gotta make an effort to integrate, by posting well thought out opinions without being anonymous. No one can get a feel for you if they do not know you exist. You also don't need to be drop dead gorgeous to make friends on here either. A lot of girls don't even have a profile picture and they are still highly valued members of the community. But if you sort of sit back with the expectation that people are going to come to you, you'll end up getting lost in the crowd. by the way, i've been on the site for years, and it's always had a very communal aspect to it, so this isn't a sudden thing
I use this site when i want to know how a typical average jane or joe would react to whatever crazy idea pops in my head, crazy news story enters my Facebook news feed, or miscellaneous question I have that I wouldn't want my family going on Facebook and reading me asking. When I'm curious about how women feel about a man finger-stroking her nipples, I want simple and honest answers without links to porn and without my mom reading what i write and insinuating why I'd be so curious.
That, and this site's users aren't as weird as the DeviantArt community which I also frequent. I consider this the "dumb teens" and "non-freak adults" polling center, whereas DA is the place to go if I want the opinions of mad genuses and bizarre fetishists.
I never noticed it was like a dating site. I message people when I'm bored and its never about getting into a relationship with someone. and the how do I look section is to help people feel more secure about themselves
No. I think there are a lot of insecure people who come on here trying to find questions to issues that are plaguing them.
I also don't see why some people want to discourage this site is a potential meet-up for people. If two people are compatible and into each other on here, why shouldn't they be encouraged to date? I mean if you find someone that you like, go for it. What do you have to lose
Also, don't let these people get to you. If you want to feel better, you can go on to my MyTake and read the many comments from guys who have rated me below-average just for me giving a common sense take. I personally feel that I'm a 7-8 depending on how I feel. A lot of them said they saw me as a 4 and yet didn't mention one thing about what I had written.
I'm telling you this because some people feel better after hearing bad situations that others have been in. Maybe you'll feel better.
That's the one thing that stood out for me on here. The kind of close community aspect of it. Yeah those questions get old, but you get used to it. I used to feel the same way until I started to talk to people. I felt left out so I started making my presence known. Which took a bit of courage, but that's the only way you'll make friends and be noticed here. I'm not even double take gorgeous, let alone drop dead, but that's ok. People here seem to like me for what's inside and that's what matters most.
So don't hide behind the Anon mask. Show who you are, be yourself and own it. Make us notice you!
It's never been a dating site lol you may think it, people may date each other off of this site, but that's not the sole purpose of this site. As long as you know yourself, that this site is not a dating site, it shouldn't exist in your life/world.
Those questions are asked a hell of a lot. I guess in a way it does put those GaGers in the limelight and it kind of brings everyone on GaG together. Which I don't see as a problem. People can date whoever they want off here (if they chose to) I don't see that as a problem though either. Whatever floats there boat right?
