Should I leave GAG?

GAG is becoming a non-friendly community. Its becoming really toxic and I've been in site again just for a month.
Am I the only one thinking this?

I swear when I first joined GAG it wasn't so toxic.

  • Honestly I don't really let bad or negative people get to me because I know that what they say or do is a reflection of them and not me. I just try really hard to gain wisdom and understanding of life so that I can become a more loving, kind and thoughtful person to me and everyone else. I sometimes think I spend too much time on here and I need to leave for awhile. I need to become more quiet and just more aware of my surroundings. I like GAG because I can dump my thoughts but I think I need to just talk to myself more.

  • There's lots of toxicity here, but sometimes it's like a hole that sucks you in. It prevents you from living life. If life is going well, and you're actively engaging with it, then Gag will feel good. If not, then, well. All these things are a case of what one dwells on.

      Yes, I completely agree with you. My life isn't go the best and I come here to let go of some steam, which there is a lot of negativity.

  • I thought there was a bit of a dark phase in last while but I thought it was getting better. Over a couple of accounts I have been here about 16 months and there has been about 5/6 shifts in direction, some good, some bad - Best thing is take a step back and choose where you want to join in, the areas most positive to you.

      Yeah, I am planning on coming and going

    • 2mo

      Probably a good idea and it can help! It's certainly not a be on here every day type of website

  • I think toxicity hits any site eventually. its when the good people leave that it becomes really bad. I guess you have to figure out if the good ones that are on here are worth staying for.

  • When you take this site too seriously you wind up feeling the way you do now. Anyways this place is like a re-wind of high school.

      I'll try to take it less seriously. Thanks for the opinion

  • Mel, I can't say I blame you. For me at this point, it's mostly about writing Takes. A lot of people here are either inexperienced in sex and life, or very experienced and just gross. If you want to leave, it's okay. I'll give you my email.

      Huh?

    • 2mo

      I'm saying that you were optimistic walking into this, and now not so much. :D Just like anywhere else on the planet with people, you'll have your good encounters and your bad encounters.

    • 2mo

      I see. Thank you for your words

  • It hasn't changed tbh. I don't know why you make this so complicated tho, if you enjoy using this site then stay, if you don't then leave.

      People here are juat plain rude. With this account, I've been called unnecessary names while expressing my opinion. So that for me is toxicity that I don't need sir.

    • 2mo

      That's not good.

  • You'll probably consider this comment to be "toxic" and "unfriendly" as well, but I get the feeling you're the sort of person who just wants to hear he thoughts and feelings repeated back to her in an echo chamber. If you can't handle disagreement, yes, I would suggest you leave.

    I'd rather you stay because I'm curious about the opinions of people different than myself, but I will not coddle you.

      Sir, I can handle disagreements. Hell, I was in the debate team in college. so I know how to handle them. Lol

      Thw problem is when people start getting verbally abusive when you disagree with something of theirs and when they start calling you unnecessary names, thats when I want to stop this toxicity from entering into my life. There is a BIG difference with that sir.

  • You can get vaccine if you induded toxic. Good luck

  • Try not to take it seriously. That's when things become too much and they start affecting you personally. Take breaks if needed, though.

  • It has always been toxic. If it's too much for you, leave. Not like you can't come back. There's always the option to return.

  • You aren't doing this for attention right? But It has gotten worse. I've just learned to ignore it. I hardly answer any questions anymore. If you can't handle it then leave but don't let a bunch of idiots ruin it for you.

      No I am not. Lol

      But yes, I've been insulted here for expressing my opinion. Back in the day, it wasn't like this, it was more of a of a friendly community.

      But you're right, I shouldn't let them ruin this for me

  • Sure, if you want to leave then go ahead...
