I love G@G, and I'm addicted to it, in case you haven't noticed. But there are a few reasons why I'd keep this site all to myself, a 'dirty little secret' if you like.
1. Honesty & Forwardness
I try to answer each question with 100% honesty, and a lot of the time I'm more honest and forward than I would be in real life. Why, you may ask? I think a lot of people, myself included, find it easier to be honest and open about things online, some hiding behind a computer screen. On the other hand though, some people find it easier to lie online, so there's that too.
Also, I'm a lot more forward with sexual questions and everything else too, simply because I think it's healthy to talk about these things, but personally I find it harder in real life because a lot of people find it confronting. Also, I have a fairly conservative friendship group, which makes it a lot harder to talk about these things in real life. In fact, GaG is like my little retreat from all that conservative-ness (if that's even a word).
But I think a lot of people in real life would be shocked if they saw half of the stuff I've shared/commented on GaG lol, and that's not about to change.
2. Online persona
This is similar to the one above, but I want to reinstate the fact that many times, people become more confident or put on an act of bravado on the internet, or alternatively can be more true to themselves than they ever could be in real life. It goes both ways.
I find that it's a lot easier to be more true to myself on here, purely because no one really knows me on a personal level (well, not really) so I have more freedom in what I say.
3. Friends judging G@G itself
Ironically my real life friends are rather conservative, and although I can't determine what their exact response would be if I showed them the site itself, I have a pretty good idea. A lot of them would just get one glimpse of the wrong question and be like 'nah I'm out'. Sorry G@G, but no sharing on Facebook for me either!
Anyways, wanted to keep this take short and sweet, let me know your thoughts!
Also interested to hear if anyone else has shared the fact that they're on GaG with many people and how it went for them.
