boring discussions

Philippines
March 26, 2013 11:26am CST
In as much as I want to participate in many discussions here in myLot, I just cannot pull myself through because I do not find some of them interesting. However, there are also some who are worth participating especially to those which I can actually relate. I do not mean to be rude but I guess we all have our own preference in choosing which discussions we are going to participate. I cannot even start something quite interesting to start on because I usually run out of things to share.It is quite difficult to find a particular topic you wish to start discussing so you can draw many responses. Anyway, I wish to thank those co-myLotters who participate in every discussions i started. Thank you very much for you have become a part of myLot's life.

I was thinking I am the only one who finds it hard to think of an interesting post for discussions. But I feel better now that I am not alone in this. However, I try my best to response and comment as many post as possible when I have the time to come here. I do not deny I am having difficulty to relate to some of the post as I am not familiar with it.

Most of us here have the same issues. we are not only here for the small money we earn. More than that we all enjoy participating in any discussion that seems to be interesting. I actually enjoy it because this is very interactive compared to other sites I am also a member.

What you have shared is really true. We are here not solely because of the little cents that we earned. Had it not because of the the fun from the interactions and valuable information that I could learn from mylotters here, I would not be spending my time here that often. I am very glad that someone introduce me to this wonderful site. So, happy mylotting and good day to you![em]happy[/.em].

We all have our own spheres of interest and find some discussions fascinating and some quite boring to us. There would be very little point in trying to participate in a discussion that does not appeal to us, partly because we have nothing to offer and partly because we get no pleasure from them. I often browse through discussions started by my friends but only respond to those which suit me. For example, being a 63 year male I would have nothing to contribute towards a discussion about cosmetics or dressmaking.

I have the same feeling. I always browse through all new topics, but there are ones which I'm not interested about at all. I only answer those questions where I can actually make a valuable contribution, which I like, which I can relate to, which intrigue me, which open my eye.

For some discussion that we cannot relate with- we find it boring. I only respond to topic that I can relate with and attract me. It is easier to write our response and comment if we know the subject. I also participate more on with my friends topics- because I can respond with some funny lines to make the topic more lively.

I know what you mean there are days, I come here to Mylot, and I can't find anything to comment on in here, and I have to either keep looking around, in here to find a discussion to comment on, or take 2 weeks off until, the discussion get interesting again.

I find it is like this for me as well. Some of them are just right for me and others not so good. I am glad we have so many people here for all to get something out of the site.

I am quite bored too. It's not everyone's fault though because we are all different, just like you said. It is hard to find discussions that we can relate to sometimes that we end up stuck. Usually, I start my discussions regardless of how many people would possibly visit it and respond to it. I just like to share that is all and even when there are no responders, that is alright with me. Some of the discussions that I start which I think are not that interesting, turns out having more responders than I expected. It's really ironic, For all of us, I hope there will be many interesting discussions that will appear.

we cannot blame each other for posting what we really want to start with. That's a good position you have there, one should not be that conscious on what to post expecting other people to respond

It will only frustrate us if we aim to make a discussion just to have responders. It is better we start a discussion that we are passionate about and have responders who are just as passionate about it. that is a good way to make friends quicker around here. the more we show ourselves through our discussions and responses, the more people will be drawn to us. And the more we get to interact and enjoy our time together here.

Same here. It is hard for me to find discussions with my interest. Sometimes I am not answering any of the discussions posted because I don't know what to say because I am not interested.

Much of the discussions being shared are not really that interesting to me too so I just cannot force myself to comment or share anything at all. I just take the time to look for more interesting ones that I can participate with.

I totally take you side on this because it is true. It can become very boring for many reasons. You mentioned one reason and there are maybe more depending on the person but I was thinking about something. Is it not really up to us to make it interesting? What I mean by that is I am not always in the mood for discussions and therefore just go do something else. If I am not getting something out of a discussion I try to consider what interests me about anything related to it. I find it is a lot like talking to someone without yawning.

Yes, that is definitely true. It is also our concern that we have to make sure that we post intersting discussions. Though at times it is quite difficult to start a new one.

yes, there are really discussion or discussions that do not capture our interest to reply with. it is because we cannot relate much to it. and sometimes for myself, i do not understand the gist of it, so that is why - i escaped then find another one that i can participate with. that is why for me, i am glad or grateful that somehow some of our good friends here do the replying, because they do understand it and interested with the discussion you started. thanks for sharing this thought of yours :)

Thanks to you too, my friend. Seeing how many people respond to my discussions is enough boost for me to go on and think of a better posts that many can relate with.

i was going to say kind of the same as Hatley. just look around at some of the hoy discussions or some with no response as at times you will find you feel good by helping a mylotter out by coming up with at least a little something to say so they dont get discouraged. then try discussing also something going on in your life that you would discuss with others in real life. not the weather or something bland but something going on with you others might relate to and it might give them ideas also.

I do that sometimes. i look for those who have no responses and tried to say something on it to start the discussion rolling.

there are lots of discussions that I don't relate to, and therefore i won't respond to them. I have found some of them not to be boring per se, but that i just don't have anything to say. I don't start all that many discussions either, as i have a hard time coming up with a topic of discussion, that others would want to respond to. It is much easier to respond to others discussions, since i don't have to come up with a topic. It is also hard to come up with a topic, that hasn't been discussed already. I really do like mylot alot and I do have fun in here, but when I can't find anything to respond to, then I just leave, and wait until later to come back and there are usually discussions to respond to then. Take care, and have a very good day.

I also find it difficult to start a discussion which will surely draw some discussants to participate. I only had started a few and still struggling to start new ones.

I find some that are dry and have a hard time commenting while others only need a short comment and others that I can write a bunch on.

When I cannot find anything interesting to respond to I usually start my own discussion. Lol. I like to discuss real life problems because I love giving advice! So, people's personal problems I love to help with. =) Usually I can find something to respond to though here.

I tend to gravitate toward people with life problems that need solving or when people just need to vent. I don't go on discussions that don't pull me in.

There are days that the site seems to be having lesser topics to get us interested to join in. And also I do not force myself to star a discussion if I am really not up for it. So when it happens, I just take a short break then come back and hopefully something great would come up.
