Are your discussion real or made up?

The majority of my discussions are about my personal life and looking for unbiased opinions from mylot members. Sometimes I'll find something in the news that is interesting to me and I like to share with mylot friends or an interesting site that I think everyone will appreciate. Do you make up stories for discussions here on mylot or has everything you've discussed really happened to you? Do you value the opinions of mylot friends and find them helpful....I know I do!

My discussions are all about my real life or about my thoughts and opinions. While I understand that some people post made-up scenarios just to get attention or to make money, I've never felt the need to do so. My real life is interesting enough, I guess. I do often post about things that I've been thinking about, usually in topics like religion and such. I like to use mylot as a sounding board off which to bounce my ideas, and sometimes my own opinions and beliefs wind up being influenced by input from others that helps me focus and look objectively at things.

What are you talking about? Since when do I have a mind for anything to be on anyway?

All of my discussions are real life. I do not have the imagination to make anything up. I wish that I did. But it seems to me that 'my' MyLot friends use their real life stories for their discuissions.

I have a few that have come from my imagination. But most of mine are real things that I've seen, heard or experienced. They're usually just little tidbits from by everyday life. Sometimes I have bigger issues that I share. When I do throw in something like a news story, I still add lots of my own opinion and/or words. On the rare occassion that I do put a discussion out there that's totaly hypothetical, it's just for a little fun and I never try to pretend it's factual.

I have read some discussions that shocked me and had to wonder if they were really true. Pretty unbelievable stuff. Even if thses things actually did happen to me, I would certainly never post them in a public place for the world to see! Besides, to keep up a string of fabrications you would have to have an amazing memory and mine just isn't that good. Guess some are just in it for the big money. haha

Most of my discussion are inquiries or questions about something I'm curious about. It's seldom that I share something about me so I can't say my posts here are made up. And hey, it's hard to say something when you're just mnaking it all up. I response faster here and I may only be able to do that by telling what i thought is true and that is I can also relate.

Ya know its funny you posted this and i came across it..just yesterday I was thinking and realized that I dont post threads in here asking for advice really....I love getting ppls opinions on various topics but i dont think I've ever posted a thread lookign for help (though I've been here for some time now so I could be mistaken)...I do value the opinions of many Mylotters though (not all of coures but several)... As for any personal topics or responses i give..yes they are all real, true and actually happened to me...I see no point in making stuff up..I mean first off its just a bad karma thing and secondly what purpose would it serve ya know..

Most of mine are real life either myself or my friends- things I need advice on, I also do some issue/debate type discussions to hear people's opinions. I guess it just depends on my subject.

I have never made up any of my discussions as I do not thinkthats fair. I often use something from the news but it is real. Everthing I have discussed of a personal nature really did happen anda lot has happened to me as I am in my eighties now. I find the opinionss of mylot friends truly helpful.
