  • I don't know about a greatest achievement, but getting others to actually answer my questions is kinda an achievement. ☺

  • My greatest gag achievement is being here since 2010. It's been a long rollercoaster ride. Also I enjoyed helping how many people I helped and still helping people solve their problems and issues. Also another achievement is my high point percentage.

  • I already wrote some things on Paris13's opinion, but, I thought of some more -- so figured I'd drop those here.

    __

    Already wrote these:

    • I originally thought I'd just post here for a couple days (over Christmas last year, when I was stuck in the hospital with some family)... but, just in those couple days, 2 people told me my advice had really made a difference for them, and 1 person even told me something I wrote had made him reconsider suicide.
    That's why I stayed more than just a couple days.

    • It feels like an "achievement" whenever I can help anyone understand anyone else's perspective, regardless of whether it's my own.

    • Quite a few people who've become disillusioned with the idea of marriage -- some still single, some actually married -- have told me that the stuff I've written has made them think of marriage in a whole new way, as something that's alive, energizing, exciting, and... sexy.

    • Overall, I just like the site, and I've had a positive experience here. I wouldn't keep coming back here otherwise.

    __

    MORE STUFF:

    • I do actually feel a sense of REAL "accomplishment" when someone acknowledges that I've changed her/his perspective -- or even just helped her/him understand the other side -- on an issue that's VERY emotionally loaded, where most people just dig in their heels and DON'T normally ever switch sides (or even listen to each other.
    For instance...
    —— I had a dialogue with someone who originally held the perspective that ANY kind of restrictive dieting -- including the kind that fitness competitors use to prepare for our competitions -- constituted "an unhealthy relationship with food".
    I actually persuaded this person to agree with the idea that, as part of maintaining control over their lives in a more general sense, some people just have a greater need for dietary control than others do (WITHOUT slipping into actual disorders like anorexia nervosa) -- in much the same way as some people have a greater need for neatness/cleanliness than others do.
    —— I talked with a couple people who originally thought that ALL pre-nuptial agreements were bad, signifying a fundamental lack of trust; I got these people to understand some situations where such agreements would be well-advised in good faith. ALSO, I got some people who couldn't understand how anyone could ever marry WITHOUT a pre-nuptial agreement to at least better comprehend *that* side of the issue, too. (This was especially satisfying, helping BOTH sides see a little

      better what was happening on the other side.)
      —— As mentioned above, I've gotten some people who were totally anti-marriage to start thinking of marriage as something that's potentially exciting and sexy (... and not even on purpose—just by writing about my own marriage).
      These were all especially satisfying, because these are the kinds of topics on which most people tend to just sit there and shout at each other, without ever really listening to each other, and without any actual productive exchange of ideas happening.

      • I talked to a young woman on PM a couple of months ago about some issues she's been having. I had her start writing a journal about her experiences -- first, with me checking in on her and making sure she was writing the entries -- but, now, she's actually on her way to writing an entire *book* that's going to grow out of the original journal entries. Awesome!

      I should really add, I honestly never thought my advice could actually be helpful to anybody. Knowing that I really helped someone is a wonderful feeling 😊

  • My greatest achievement on GaG, was being the main negotiating force to have the health and fitness section added to this website back in 2012.

    I was talking with the admins (who are different people from the admins now) for awhile about how health and fitness questions have no definitive section... and they listened to me! 😃

  • When I got all the answers and information I was looking for. I've always been interested in male/female social interactions and attraction of the 2 genders. Example, how one gender can get attention more easily than the other gender. I've performed countless social experiments to help my findings.

    I've also done a few how do I look questions for myself and got the answers I was looking for.

    Overall, I am depressed of what I have learned. Sometimes my friend, ignorance is truly bliss.

    • 2mo

      Further experimentation is required. A gender can improvise, adapt, and overcome such findings. My research shows that one is apparent as the other. I differ exponentially as far as when I get all the info and answers, I realize that the surface has only been scratched..

  • Coming on here to get advice about my friend whom I'd like to be my girlfriend. After that I just stayed around giving my opinion. The best thing that I have done was to just have fun talking with others in the messenger. I hope they increase the word count on it soon.
