I'm just trying to get some advice about some problems and situations in my life but it seems that people just comment on the not so serious and silly questions. There are questions I've asked where there has been 0 comments. How do I stand out?

If there is no reason to go anonymous, then don't. People can follow identified people, but when anonymous, people cannot follow you and see your question.
Make your question short and to the point. Details in the description, not the question.
Use good writing habits. Group like thoughts in paragraphs, not running one thought into another with no breaks.
If something is not important to the question, leave it out. Worthless information will cause people to stop reading.
Read it through before submitting. If it does not make sense, we can't answer it.
Once you are sure it is ready, do not submit it until a time at which lots of people, especially those who follow you, are on. If you submit it when things are slow on here, it will not get much response, even if you get a couple of answers. If you post it when people are likely to answer, those answers will also cause it to show up in the feeds and get more responses.
Respond to the opinions. Every time activity happens on your question, it will show up in the feed again, reaching more people. You should give it a few minutes before responding, but not too long. Spaces out the "hits" on the feed nicely.1

There are plenty of reasons people may not be as interested in your question.
1. Do not go anonymous if possible. I understand that you may be sharing a very personal issue and do not want your identity attached to the question. However, many users prefer to answer questions with someone's profile attached to it. It makes it more personable, of course.
2. Try to come up with an interesting question. Nothing too long or too short.
3. The same goes for the details of your question. Do not have a wall of text, but try to give some extra information to help the readers understand your issue. Too much text can overwhelm the eyes and too little text may not allow users to understand exactly what the issue is, so they're left wondering how to respond (and end up just skipping over the question).
4. Make sure your grammar and punctuation is as correct and neat as possible. If you really think you need a paragraph or two of text to explain yourself, make sure it's broken down well and easy to read as already mentioned.
5. Your situation may be hard to relate to, so people aren't exactly sure how to respond.
Keep those things in mind and I hope all the responses you've been given help you.1
