Most of my questions are ones that I actually do need some advice on. I could easily solve the problem myself but this site is nice for a timekiller or if I'm too bored or lazy to think of the answers myself, or if I'm just completely clueless.
I usually have a certain type of answer I'm looking for, but I put that in the question's description if there is indeed a possible answer I'd get that I know I wouldn't accept. For example, if I wanted to ask a girl out, one possible answer I could get would be "don't ask her out in the first place - she's not worth it". But that wouldn't quite be an answer I'd accept because I would already have decided to ask the girl out, and would just have needed some advice on how to do it.
But, if someone has an answer and explains it very well, even if it wasn't what I was expecting or the type of answer I was planning on even considering, I would definitely give it a chance and either take some advice from it or actually follow it.
I want the honest truth. If I wanted people to tell me what I want to hear I'd ask the people around me. I'm also looking for other peoples point of view because they may have ideas that I haven't thought of .
I ask questions because I want an honest answer. Maybe in the frame of mind I'm in, I'm not thinking clearly, and if others tell me I'm wrong, then I'm probably wrong, but having strangers tell me I'm wrong makes it easier and seems more honest than a friend telling me the same thing. Most friends tell you just what you want to hear, but it's probably not how they really feel/think.
I don't ask very delicate questions anyway, as I'm here to answer, those questions I ask are for fun, and there aren't specific answers I "expect" - actually I already know how the answers will look - there will be some sensible answers, some deeply thoughtful answers, some funny answers and some angry answers.
