I don't know if it's just me who sees it this way or whatever.
We all have our insecurities be it something to do with our appearance or personalities.
However, I feel like certain topics on GaG are focused on heavily that it gets to the point where it's no longer comparable to real life.
For instance, ahem, the questions often asked by men in regards to "size"(I'M 17, YOU EITHER KNOW WHAT I MEAN OR DON'T) or when females ask questions about down below and preferences. Or makeup and how much the guys on here "hate" it. Or height, how much the guys(especially short ones) are focused heavily on it.
I mean, I know there are people who are genuinely insecure, but I think on GaG these topics are focused on more heavily than in real life.
For instance, I have a lot of guy friends and they can be quite open and honest about their preferences sometimes, but they usually only hit the obvious(butt, boobs, hips, leg size preferences), however even when talking about the reproductive act they don't talk about preferences down below.
Or how much they HATE makeup.
And the shorter guys I know are cool with their height. My female friends generally have their preferences but they've never allowed preferences to get in the way.
Do you think a lot of the things focused on girlsaskguys are really irrelevant to real life guys and girls?

I think a lot of the people you meet in real life don't have the same insecurities and that's why they aren't on a site like this.
In my opinion, many of the same insecure questions we see here (because they're asked anonymously) are coming from the same people over and over again. They don't want help or advice. They want their fears to be confirmed and their prejudices against the opposite gender to be justified. They want to be told their failure with the opposite gender is due to something beyond their control, because if they accept that it isn't, then they have to do something about it.
When it comes to things like makeup, it's true many guys hate it. Many guys don't care. But you don't see so many questions going "GIrls, seriously, stop with the make up". You will see the questions raised by the girls themselves. So guys will give their opinions. But in the real world, most girls wear make up to make themselves feel better or sexier. They don't necessarily care what guys think about make up. So yes, I think you're right that the issues on GAG don't matter in the real world. But the people asking the questions need to be convinced of that. And that's easier said than done.2
