So long story short, im conflicted as to whether or not i should stick around anymore. I've been on gag for many years on and off, but i feel like a lot of the connections i had with people here are largely gone now, as a good number of people that i use to know have left. Today, it's much more difficult to start a dialouge with someone new. Either you don't get replies back, or you build something with someone, and then they suddenly stop responding to ya when you tag them or w/e. So i feel like i've either outgrown the place, or i'm simply being displaced by fresh new users who are more liked than i am. Sooo with that being said, you guys can help me decide on whether i should stay or go in the poll. What i still do like about GaG is that it's still somewhat nice to answer certain questions, and interact with the few people who are interested in having a conversation.. which is why i'm conflicted. GaG can be a big time waster, especially when you're in med school -_- Anyhow, vote in the poll. The results won't necessarily decide for me, but it may help lean me in one direction or the other.

I hope you decide to stay. I think you bring a rational voice to this website. I appreciate your friendship and I'd certainly miss you if you decide to leave.
I understand your concerns. I've lost communication with some people I care about to. But I think you might need to adjust your expectations there. Be grateful for the friends for as long as they are there. Realize that most people you meet will be "on the surface" friends. Not fake but just not really deep lasting friendships.
Personally I have found 1 genuine, deep and I hope forever friend from this site. That one relationship alone makes it worth it for me. But there are many more friends here that I consider blessings in my life. They lift me up sometimes without even realizing it.
As far as the popularity thing goes, who cares? I was "in" one day and "out" the next.
And the time wasting is a concern but you will only waste as much time as you allow yourself to waste.
Hopefully you'll evaluate and your list of pros to stay will be big enough to convince you!0
