It happens very often. I've seen questions that have gotten more than enough answers and opinions (even 100+), but many more have barely even gotten one answer. I'm sure many of us put our hearts and souls into asking an important question for us and then wait for hours, days, for someone to rid us of our sufferings but none/barely any of you do. And a lot of time those answers are from those people who wanna gain experience points by answering first and not being helpful at all. Why is it so hard for you guys to take two minutes to help someone who really needs it but instead you give opinions on questions that don't need any more answers. I thought this community was designed for helping people.

Multiple reasons. For one thing questions scroll off the first page very quickly. Once that happens it's much less likely to be answered.
Second. This site has gotten away from being a help site and turned into a chit chat social site. Helping people has become secondary. People want one sentence questions they can give one sentence answers to. Any real question affecting a person's life can't be asked or answered in a couple of sentences.
Third. The entire site rewards quantity, not quality. That's always been true, but it's more true now than it used to be. The site no longer has anything to do with helping people. It's become a money making site which means they want high volume of posts, even if it's asking questions like "What's your favorite color?" It's also become much more sexual oriented. Sex sells after all.
Why actually help people if that doesn't bring in the money? People complain about not being able to ask dozens of questions a day. It's not possible to ask more than a few legitimate questions here. All the rest is pure fluff. That means that any regular member here can't ask questions, only answer them. The large majority of legitimate questions at a site like this will be from new members. But that's not how it's set up.
Forth. The site has changed from being a place where people try to gain an understanding of the other gender, to being a contest between genders. It's become "Woe is me, my gender has it so terrible and it's all your fault." Or substitute race, nationality, body shape, or anything else for gender.
Bottom line is that this is no longer a help site. It's not a site to understand the opposite gender. It's all fluff. If someone actually gets help for a real problem, it's an exception.1

I always give honest and truthful opinions and what ever catches my attention and I think it's important to advice.
Sometimes, I don't have the answer to the questions and then I advice to seek professional people because the question may be outside of our expertise (GAG community).
But I do understand where you are coming from... I've had it that I've asked a few relatively important questions and got only like 2-3 answers.. That wasn't really nice... But yeah, what can one do? People answer to what they want to answer or feel adequate to answer..
Not everyone goes through or sees the same thing that you see as important so important :)1
