Ha! I feel like this is a trick question because well... for the most part we are all strangers. LolIt depends on what type of advice you’re asking. For example: People who know you: With the way Tom is acting do you think he’s cheating? You can only get the right answer because this person knows Tom and you. They can make an educated guess based on previous behavior and what they know of both of you. People you don’t know: I’m thinking on cheating on my boyfriend “Tom” because I think he’s cheating on me. Strangers are going to give it to you straight. They’re not going to sugar coat anything and will give you the best advice. Good luck!
Yes! It’s easier because there is no bond and they won’t have trouble calling you out on your bs.
Its easier getting others opinions on clothes or shoes and some times relationships. Granted the first two are fairly easy but it's a great resource to find out if some thing looks better or not. The relationship advice is great because they are not involved in it what so ever and have a fresh perspective on things you have been thinking about too hard. But like all advice it's an opinion based on the givers experience and not every situation is the same. So if I am answering a question on shoes and such I will just give my first thought on it. Relationship questions those anyone answers should be thought out.
Thank you for the MHA.
Depends if you mean in person or online. In person not at all. For me online is a way to escape and typically it won't follow you into physical shape. Its easier to ask for advice and opinions online knowing that the chances of meeting those people in person are slim to none.
Have an opinion?
No. It’s easiest just to do research and introspection on past experiences. After that, talking to someone you know in depth would be best. The more you understand how they think and how their mind works the more you can trust bouncing ideas off of them. Strangers are probably less reliable than a magic eight ball.
Initially I think not, but there are certain things that friends and family simply can't answer... So a stranger for the question is sometimes an option, granted if they are knowledgeable in the subject at hand.
I think it's easier to talk to people you don't know online because they dont know you and dont have an opinion on you, and dont know your past and aren't able to judge you.
If I were to ask a stranger for advice I wouldn't have to fear disappointing or putting off my friends or family
Yes, because they don’t know who I am. In fact, the best advices I’ve ever received have been here with total strangers! 😄
Yes, because they are unbiased and won't sugar coat things. They also look objectively because they don't know all the variables and context.
For Me, No Need But for Others Here, Dear... They No Fear. xxoo
I chose no, I feel like strangers don't want to hear my problems. The only stranger I would ask life advice from is old people as they seem more open for a discussion.
Evidently that's the case here on GAG, don't you think? Half of them are anonymous too. Weak sauce. ;)
Yes. As a stranger, I don't know you, and will give you my candid honest opinion.
no its just easy here cause u always get replys and answers
Easier. Also easier to share things coz they dont know us.
Yes. They don't have any reason to lie to you in the name of friendship.
No but I'm mostly the one giving out advice to The Strangers
Yeah, because they can't criticize you knowing your whole situation
Well they dont know you and they won't sugar coat it
Yes , i am shy that is why i don't ask many questionsbut i am trying to work on things with that but it helpsgetting advice from people on here.
Why would I ask a stranger for advice.
I mean, if u are on this app and you've asked any question that had to do with u needing advice then u pretty much asked a whole bunch of strangers for advice😂😂😂
Yes I see what you mean. In that case we are all anonymous & it can be easier then consoling in a friend.
Yes I do.
Online, yesIn real life, no..
You know you can say the truth.
If I or they were lost I would for sure!
Depends on the situation and their expertise.
no. i'm a private person
and a very guarded person
NO. That's awkward as hell
Dude that's the whole purpose of this website :D
Simple, because they are Strangers
It depends though
Some are more experienced
I ask good friends if I need advice
no, and you shouldn't be taking strangers advice either. THEY DONT HAVE YOUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART
Not the brightest idea to ask for advice to people who know nothing of your life experiences, who you are nor what is your context.
Not sure. Not for me anyway.
Depends on the issue.
Yea I love asking strangers about how I should fix my marriage. Their confusion and subtle hint of fear makes me trust their response all the more!
No because they have no clue who i am. They're comparing me to the avg. Guy and asdigning advice accordingly. But i'm a long f'ing wY from avg.
