I've been through tons of horrible relationships, and I've had a couple of really good ones. I think it's given me a lot of perspective, along with a bit of a drive toward helping people. So I come here. I try my hardest to help. Maybe keep some people from letting things get too bad, or making big mistakes, or helping people just find some kind of happiness. Perhaps verbally slap the stupid out of a couple of morons along the way too. Whatever helps.
So that's what I do. That's why I do it. As for what I get out of it, that's a little harder to explain. I guess there's a certain satisfaction to helping people. If you really need to have someone tell you what you get out of helping people, then I'm not sure it will be easy to explain beyond anything I said above. It's not really something you can measure or quantify. Not necessarily. Not always. Sometimes not ever.
So I help because I got my reasons. What I get out of it is minor satisfaction, and a little time killed. Simple as that. I hope that explained it well enough.
It's nice to see that I'm not the only one having problems. Usually guys act like we know everything there is to know about women, but we don't, and on here we can be candid about it. That's why we ask. We answer girls' questions mostly because it makes us feel like we actually know something about dating/relationships.
I used to be on OkCupid but I disliked how limited the poll answers were. They started to allow an explanation but I always ran out of room. Some of my answers take up the 3000 characters allowed. Almost all of my answers are a form of 'depends' on the variables. Funny thing is that if a question is long winded, I tend to just skim anyway.
