I love this site LOTS but being on here is making me bitter as crap. I've read some pretty fucked up stuff on here and it's making me hate men, like all men. I seen some great guys on this site that's fair and not sexist but it's really hard to not hate them all. Being on this site had taught me a lot of great awesome things but also taught me to be bitter towards men in real life and on here. I hate being this way but I am. And it's not just men, I've lost respect for women also. They all seem to hate women anyways. What should I do?
Also I know this is just a site and 'not' real life but people express how they REALLY feel on the internet so it's basically still real life
It is all about how you use the site - I see myself as a positive person, I want to be a positive influence on people on site and I want them to be positive for me SO before you do anything on site subconciously think "Will this be good for me?" then engage in the things that make you happy and avoid the things that make you bitter.
Men on this site aren't an accurate depiction of men in general. For example, if 8 out of 10 men on this site act bitter to women "being too shallow", well then not 8 out of 10 men out in the world are actually bitter to women "being to shallow". That's because guess where those men go when they run into these issues? Anywhere they can to complain about it. And it just so happens to be that this site is used as just that.
What should you do? Simple, treat each person as their own self, and kick generalizing to the curb.
There's this luxury called taking time off. I come and go on the site. Real life is worth living and experiencing. Helping people on here is worthwhile but often not appreciated and most of the questions are very repetitive. You cannot change the way some people see the world, there is no point constantly trying either. You do what you can and then you go and live your life. No need to take things so personally or drain yourself so much by being on here too often or reading and reviewing things that you know full well make you feel low.
GAG is just a small representative sample of a particular set of people who either currently do or did at some point have trouble with relationships or anything regarding inter-gender stuff.
I admit, I wasn't so militant against religions before I hung out a lot around here, but I think I've actually just had my eyes opened and it is not necessarily a bad thing. But make sure if you're militant, then you have a valid reason to support your claim.
I have similar feelings for this website. Yes people need help and its great there is a place where they can go for it and it would best if there were people on this site that could help them with that like @KDA20.
I can understand what you are coming from and I would say... Bottom line if this place is hurting you... then quit.
The best solution is to leave. I learned long ago not to put much value on websites like this and just use them for cheap entertainment. You should never let faceless strangers from the Web negatively impact your life.
I have been on this GAG site for nearly two years and till counting here, dear, and with This... I have SEEN it all on the wall. I never point fingers, I am always diplomatic and when I BLOCK, I only do so if I see anyone being rude and crude about a sore subject that they get 'Bitter as crap' about themselves and will not be quiet about. Don't let it get you down to the point where you want to 'Deactivate' and hate. It's the Internet, it's behind the computer curtain, and certain people on Here, on Any media site you go on, feel more free to voice what they want because in Real Life, you could say, they do not always do it or have the nerve to do it or Even... Continue it here because it is in their blood to do so. Take it with a grain of salt. As bitter as you may be towards both sexes, it is what it is, roll with the punches, Enjoy being here and just move on from it. Good luck. xx
Duuude the majority on guys on here aren't all douchey. I think we pay too much attention to the negative ones. But if it makes you feel really bad just deactivate. G@g has gone to the dogs so its not a big loss. Or just stop using it for awhile and use something else.
