I feel like most of them are weird virgins with absolutely no dating experience. Not trying to sound like a bitch but it's just what I see on here constantly. Where the normal ones at? Wondering if I should even be taking advice on here.

Weird virgin here I guess lol.
Few points to make in response to this:
1.) While someone is a virgin and may have little to no dating experience, it doesn't mean they can't answer certain questions related to dating. Why? Because virgin dudes still can firstly critically think, and secondly still feel emotions. Sure, there are some questions one can't answer as a virgin or without much dating experience, but many others are perfectly fine. Although I am admittedly a virgin or whatever, I feel I have given at least some decent opinions on questions regarding dating. I avoid the questions I don't think I can answer, but if I believe I can answer a question-- why not go for it?
2.) Naturally, one should take free advice from an advice forum with a bit of hesitancy. I would say advice forums are more of a brainstorming operation, meaning that they can help OP get ideas and the question asker thinks of what is the best path to take after considering others. Advice forums are often, in my opinion, places to help one generate new trains of thought that weren't previously thought of. Sometimes the minds of many are greater than the minds of one.
3.) The definition of "normal" is really debatable. If normal is the average, who is to really say GAG isn't the average? Might be scary/shocking to some of us, but really... How many guys do we assume have had sex? How many guys have we asked about dating experience? What if the internet really just is letting people say the truth about themselves with less shame? Anecdotal (and even professional) statistics are also likely to be skewed by a shame phenomenon. Virgin / dateless guys are less likely to outright admit they are virgins / dateless in comparison to non virgin / studmuffin guys from shame or embarrassment or whatever. Cultural norms like TV and drama shows tend to portray guys as well as all around go-getters. If normal = average, how are we to claim to know what average is?
It'd be like trying to get an accurate statistic on erectile disfunction or dick size by asking people directly "do you have a small dick or ED?" Yeah-- good luck with that. Your normal may indeed be the real "normal" but I'm saying there is no way to really know for sure without skewed results.
1.) Virgins can still have opinions.
2.) It's an advice forum, think for yourself and use it as a brainstorming tool.
3.) What constitutes "normal" may be different than what you think.8
