Lately I've noticed a group of GAGers who are always here when I am here which kinda makes me wonder if they practically live on GAG seeing as I'm never here. They're always tagging each other and acting like they are the best friends in the world. I find this to be slightly alarming and sad because realistically there are only so many hours in the day. If you're spending most of them in front of GAG trying to build friendships, then you are missing out on more fruitful things.
What do you think? Do you think they are losers and need to get a life that doesn't revolve around a place called Girlsaskguys?
I agree with you a 100% on how people need not to be here 24/7 and that they lose a lot in real life but I wouldn't be so blunt and in a hurry to call them losers because I've not known them yet and there are a lot of people here with anxiety, depression, some other major health issues.
i dont think anyone trying to make friends are losers, whether it's here or in real life. if some people find GaG to be their 'happy place' then let them be. who knows what their life is like. it's their life anyway, if they wanna spend it like that, their choice i guess, although i can understand ur view.
as for me, I'm on here everyday, but not that much. I've enjoyed making friendships here and i have a great group of friends in the real world. half the time i sign in, I'm outside. like u, i enjoy living in the moment and interacting with everything around me. i go to school, have a job, so yeah life is good. GaG is a small part of that =]
I wouldn't say losers, they just find it easier to talk to someone online. They still may have a freaking awesome job, volunteer, donate money... but just because they prefer online friends that makes them losers? Not really.
I get on here very often, but not because I do nothing, but because when I'm bored I get on, and I get bored fast so... xD
I've been lately a lot here because I had holidays and a lot of time. If I wouldn't have been on GAG then I would have wasted my time with something else, where I maybe wouldn't have interacted with other people at all. I still do the work I have and meet with people in real life if possible, but my friends live a little bit further away so that's sometimes difficult...
if you wanna me call a loser because of that... your decision, but I don't think judging people like that because of their activity here is that much better...
Eh, I think they just don't have the option to find the "more fruitful things" you mention, or they don't know how to find it, or they don't seek it in the first place.
I'm pretty sure calling them "losers" won't really motivate them though, it'll just make you be an asshole. So while I do agree that we should invest in socializing in the real world (somehow), I greatly disagree with them being "losers". Judging others like that is absolutely counterproductive and one of the primary causes behind why so many people are not interested in socializing in the first place.
At work in between meetings I just have some time to burn, pull out my phone and crank out answers! or at lunch after I check my stats, investment account and social media, I'll check gag too! It doesn't take much time really. And I'm watching football right now too, I like to multitask. If you combine 2 or 3 time wasters then it's kinda like you aren't wasting THAT much time.. right? haha
Sure to some degree it can correlate with needing to get out more
BUT there is no boundaries on who you can connect with... even if its with someone from across the world.. it actually shows that a person's words are more important than them physically being around... how cool is that
The further we advance the closer technology and humans will be.. Having a awesome life filled with people and posting on GAG is not mutually exclusive, especially considering i can carry the internet in my back pocket 🎉🎉🎉🎁🎂💈💯
~the world is flat~ horizontal communication NOT vertical
No because besides my family and my job I have no life pretty much, and GAG is kinda my escape. I usually can balance both, but i'm still in a new place trying to meet new people since I haven't been getting out much for the past few months looking at work. But now since i found work, maybe i'll have friends in real life and here
I voted 'No'. A lot of people don't HAVE a life outside the internet. And 'getting' a life is easier said than done. Some people are in such deep shit, that they can't simply 'get a life' out of the blue.
I think you are a coward for posting anonymous and I also think you have no idea what you are talking about. If you are not on here everyday then how do you know what users are here unless you come on here just as much as they do? You also sound bitter and jealous. You lack logic. Tagging someone does not mean they are always on this website
I'm on here often but mostly either to kill time or to ask something, and then i get hooked on answering questions lol
I have not made friends in a while. I think i make more enemies here than friends. Making friends takes more effort, that i every rarely put in, and making enemies... I can make many enemies by simply being me and being honest and not PC.
I am quite new to this site but I think it's one of the best for candid and open questions. I think there will always be people who gravitate to these sites for any number of personal reasons but at least this is good place to chat about things with people from all walks of life. I get quite addicted to these types of sites to be honest - especialyl at the moment working in China and spending a lot of time away from friends and family. Live and let live but give certain people a swerve is my motto!
people have different priorities and ways of enjoying life. maybe they would rather enjoy a relaxing night in watching a movie & answering questions on GAG than out at a bar or whatever else is considered "fun".
No, because they don't bother me. It's their life, why should I judge them? I'm only on here when I'm bored... like right now. Maybe they are bored, too and want people to talk to.
