  • Well, back in May of last year when I joined, I was going through a rough patch of life. I was feeling pretty isolated and down about the world and it wasn't great to say the least. From that, I would occasionally spend my nights looking up ways to help myself out via online because I was kind of ashamed of seeking help from others. (In fairness, I had already sought after professional help that my university offered by this point, but all it did was confirm what I already knew. Didn't help one bit.)

    I believe I was looking up a question to help me out, and then I stumbled across GAG in the searches. I made an account, if I recall correctly, firstly due to the popups that kept happening. I wanted to view the site content but I kept getting a "sign in" popup : .

    I stayed though because I realized it was a question answer forum. I had been a former active yahoo answer member and enjoyed it, so I answered a couple questions on here. Besides liking the site format much better than Y! A, I found that helping others out on here actually translated to helping myself feel better. It also gave me moments to reflect on life and writing about stuff in turn helped sort out my own life, odd as it sounds. I also met people on here that I felt I could open up to.
    I found it easier to open up about my problems online on questions and to friendships made on here. This helped me figure things out.

    Over a long, gradual process on the site, I realized that I was no longer feeling like crap and that I was feeling genuinely happy for the first time in awhile. Because of the benefit the site gave me, I stayed on and helped others... and that's how I'm here today. Weird stuff but true. GAG actually had a positive impact.

    TL;DR; I stumbled upon it and liked question-answer forums, so I just started answering stuff.

  • I was curious to see how girls and guys see things differently (especially since I can relate to guys better in many ways)

  • When I would look up questions, sometimes one of the sites that would come up would be this one. Initially I thought little of it and visited it like I would any other forum site. Then one day I decided for some reason to make an account. Early on I didn't even really do anything, I mostly just read questions and answers. I didn't start posting opinions for a while, and it took me forever before I even asked a question. I don't know why I stayed honestly. I just couldn't bring myself to kill MusicLover. Even if only like 3 people on this site know him, I feel like he's become a distinct character from me. For better or worse, GAG is his home now.

  • The website address popped up in a search algorithm. I was confused by the name since I was searching for "Available Online Stock Filters". Looked interesting so I started reading some of the questions and comments. Got to thinking, hey I been through hell and back before, perhaps I can actually help someone avoid a mishap that I learned from already. If I actually learn something in the process then thats just a big ol plus.

  • Giving advice feels rewarding, also schadenfreude as far as the comments are concerned.

    After deleting my old account I eventually came back, but this site is a lost cause now.
