Why did you start using GAG?

I'm wondering the reasons why some people use this website.

What Guys Said 22

  • I made an account May 11, 2015.
    Let's take a look at my life before then:

    I had depression hitting me hard. I felt isolated from the world, stressed out from school, felt stuck in a rut of life I hated, which all contributed to self esteem issues. I tried to seek help by going to the school therapy center with a psychologist.

    However, all they told me was "You have depression." (Real helpful, huh?) Then they gave me an internet handout on what depression is. The person I saw then tried to contribute my depression to adjusting to college life, despite me telling them repeatedly differently, and they basically brushed off my feelings and pushed me out.
    This just left me feeling more trapped. It isn't particularly easy to share, but I remember having nights alone where I would just cry from the stress and emotions hitting me.

    Eventually, I went to the internet to find whatever ways I could to help myself out. (I felt like I couldn't talk to anyone I knew about the subject out of shame, embarrassment, fear, whatever.) Upon looking up questions and help, I eventually stumbled upon GAG with a question that was relevant to what I was looking for. I believe the reason I made an account on here was due to the ads and stuff popping up that annoyed me... although I forget specifically. Anyway, I saw it was a question forum like Yahoo Answers (which I previously frequented). That made me become more intrigued.

    Something about feeling like I was helping other people, like when someone said "Thank you!" in return, made me feel better myself. It made me feel like I was making a positive impact and doing something with my life, silly as it sounds. That's probably what kept me going on here. It was a self serving reason that in turn (hopefully) helped others out. Likewise, I was able to more easily share what my problems were on the internet-- that helped me to talk about the problem and sort stuff out.

    Nowadays, I just stay because I enjoy answering stuff and learning about other people's thoughts. I still like it when I feel I helped someone out, but I'm in a different mental state now and not all depressed and crap.

  • It's a fast simple way to get an opinion, an answer you might need and a good way to reach out to those who have a legitimate concern. I like the different ages without making things weird.

  • I just came across this site on Google when I was searching for something else and I thought I'll start using it.

    The reason I joined is because I wanted to use my logical nature, thinking to try and post useful opinions and I hope it helps others that's all.

  • Don't know about others but I personally use to know girls behavior as all of us have some secrets and fetishes which really difficult to share with friends and family in real life especially for whom who don't have life partner.

  • I started because I had a question about something. Googled the question and this site came up. I can't believe it's coming up on 5 years for me. I'll be on here and then MIA for a few months. This site IS addicting in my opinion.

  • I use this to get some answers I can't necessarily find on the web and to help others who may be struggling with some life difficulties. Sheds light and provides a feeling of someone who understands and such.

    I liked the idea of giving people advice and interacting with people, and once I discovered it, I really got into writing Takes too, it's an outlet and it's boosted my writing skills in the process.
