Do you ever feel embarrassed by your interest rankings?

The stat lover in me loves all of myLot's various ways of gauging posters' progress. We've got post counts, the ever-controversial star ratings, and interest rankings. The interest rankings are my favorite, but I also sometimes feel a bit embarrassed by the topics I'm actually ranked in. Some of them I can't even remember posting in. For instance, I'm level 1 in a marriage-related interest...did I really at one time dare to offer up marriage advice? That doesn't sound like a very good thing for a lifelong bachelor to do. I'm ranked even higher in "Love" and "Relationships"...maybe I should start writing a lonely hearts column! I know why I have those rankings: the fact is it is pretty easy to chime in on relationship topics since usually all that is wanted is your opinion and they're often easy to relate to. As long as your opinion is something along the lines of "He's a DOG, girlfriend!" or "You shouldn't put up with that...dump her immediately!" you'll probably do just fine. Still, I do feel some embarrassment -- I'm certainly no relationships expert. Do you any of your interest rankings similarly seem not to fit the real you?

I don't feel anything about my interest, i'm not embarrassed. all my interest fits to my lifestyle. But in your situation don't feel so embarrassed about your interest ranking you choose it because you feel in your self that it fits you. You don't have belong to any intimate relationship at all but you have love and relationship in your interest it is ok. You just want to learn also from others lifestyle while having a relationship and a single persons are good advisers based on my observations. And giving advise to a married one? Oh it is just fine, the advise you give to those married couple is what you want to happen to you in the near future..

Does rank in a particular interest increase our earnings? So far like you i am not embarrased of the rank i have in interest of (mylot). In other intrest i have no rank yet. Yeah we respond because we like to respond, not because of the reank that we will get.:) Thumbs up for you, I agree with you.

I totally don't even know what interest rankings are or where to even look for them. This is my first time even hearing about interest rankings. Sorry I can't answer your question.
