Belonging to sites

BillieTheBotBillieTheBot Posts: 8,723 Bot
Ive been thinking about sites like this, and does anyone agree that unless you have specific friends or people you know on the board, then you dont feel like you really belong? Because ive been here since september 2002, and i dont feel like i belong here at all, or that people have accepted me like others have been accepted. this thread will probably lead to me being disowned from the board, but i just wondered if anyone else felt the same or if its just me? :(
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Im going to be honest here ok :)

    Some people do not post much so yes you may notice the name but if they only post now and again then obviously people are not going to get to know people like yourself.
    Regular posters pop to the boards either on a weekly basis or like myself a daily basis which does mean that people get to know what you are like.

    Moonshiner if you want to feel like you fit in then its a case of posting in threads and actually getting to know people. Once you know people you then get on to sending P.Ms, you have to give if you understand what im saying , it wont just come running to you :)

    Who wants to know a secret?


    I was someone else before I was me.


    I didn't feel like I fitted in or belonged. So I signed up again and sorta.. made myself feel like I fitted in. And I feel like I do now. Although perhaps I don't. I don't know. I feel like I do anyway. :)

    Yeah, when I first joined the board I did'nt feel wanted :( Now I just dont give a fuck! Its more a case of me knowing what you lot are like before im comfortable. I have a few 'cyber mates' here now though, prolly cos I post a lot and these people are similar to me or im interested in what they post etc. I couldnt for the life of me tell you if others welcome me :D

    It's like anywhere in the 'real' world. You don't make friends if you sit quietly and don't make an effort. Get chatting to people and you make friends, simple as.

    :wave:

    Also, be out spoken, say what you think, if you shy away, people wont notice you.

    I have to say that for the first six months I doubt I was noticed much (except for my arguments with Turtle!). Then I decided that I just wanted to say how I felt and stuff how that made other people feel.

    I hope my argumentitive nature makes people question their own beliefs and thoughts.

    Laura/Loz how can you say you didnt fit in after 6 posts?! Its like no posts whatsoever :confused: An i doubt no one knew who you were.

    Anyway it dont bother me, if people like me they like me, if they dont they dont. If i thought internet boards were a top priority in my life i'd be bothered...as it isnt i aint!

    I used to have a girlfriend on here, but I hardly replied to any of her posts, nor she to mine. Like most, I felt kind of out-casted, but then I just started posting randomly.

    And look at me now...
    ...keep looking - I'm in here somewhere! :)

    I don't really feel like I fit in here but I don't really care, I don't post that much so I don't expect people to know who I am. At the end of the day this isn't real life so I don't care if I have friends here or not - hope that doesn't offend anyone!

    :)
