Like anything involving people, there are hits and there are misses.
I've encountered some strangeness, but I've also encountered some kindness, and have "met" people that I definitely consider my friends now.
I would say lately, the strange seem to be out in full force, but overall, I've benefited from my time on GaG. I also love giving advice when I can and receiving advice from objective outsiders. It's a form of study, I suppose - a study of humanity. And as a musician, writer and human being, I'm always thriving to understand my fellow man a little better :-)
Even to vent, it's all good, it's a catharsis.did I spell that right? Lol
I Love this site because people are honest and helpful and we can discuss even the silliest thing that's bugging us without feelin embarrassed since a stranger will be totally honest with u. And everyone is pretty much caring towards each other. Albeit long stories probably don't always get read so the answers may not always fit per se
Yes, I have benefited and gained some insights which I use in my personal life from being here. I also hope that I have helped a few people along the way and gave them the right answer they were looking for.
It's a give and take situation here, ask as many questions as you want, but also share your experiences with the rest of us, even if they aren't always positive. :)
You get unfiltered perspectives from other ppl. As a person that has an insatiable thirst for knowledge, this site is a good place to get fresh views on various topics when it comes to (the oxymoron of) understanding the female gender. :-D
I've met some amazing people here, and I'm doing much better than I ever was when I started coming here, as a result of them, not solely but, y'know, I guess the lions share. And, that's very important. Something about this website brought them there, and brought me to them. Even if all the magic happened outside the website, this is the Kings Ring, the herding pole. So yes... Yes, I've objectively benefited from GAG.
In general yes. I think we see more extreme opinions on here than ones in the middle, but I do trust the anon factor to a certain extent. When we ask members of the oposite sex their opinion, it is hard to know how sugar coated it is (does this dress make me look fat?), and how much is real. I think people have no sensitivity on this site, so that can be bad and good at the same time. Overall helpful
I don't know I feel there are a lot of insecure guys coming on here and trying to brag about how they get with women all the time or something. Also a fair amount of princess type females who don't have many bf's and expect guys to be mr. perfect and put everything in his life on hold for her. Of course I attribute these two things to the fact of sampling bias and how sites like these on the internet are naturally going to attract these kind of people because people who have healthy relationships and are problem free are not going to be looking for sites like this for the most part. I have gotten some good advice on here but for every good piece of advice there are equally 1-2 bad pieces of advice.
I've helped other people, which was my only intention. That's good enough for me.
