Ever just HANG OUT on myLot?

United States
May 6, 2009 12:25pm CST
Does anyone else ever just log on and poke around myLot just because they're lonely, sad, or bored? You know, just hang out, look at what's being talked about, watch what your friends are discussing... without getting involved with any discussions? I do, sometimes, if I need to just be around other people but don't really want to talk... I find comfort in it and often times I come away feeling better... I love to follow long discussions about things that I don't or can't talk about with anyone in real life... I know I use this word alot - PERSPECTIVE - but it's a great word and mylot is a great place to get it! Anyone else? Why do you hang out here? Do you just hang or do you feel the need to get involved?

Hi there Ladybug - nice to know I may be a part of providing some "happy" feelings to others who do the same as I do! Sorry you're having a bad day, I hope it gets better!

Ever just hang out at mylot? Yes friend, :) I hang out all the time at mylot but it wouldn't be any fun at all if that's all that I ever did. I love to contribute and try to give people a different way of looking at things. Sometimes it's helpful and sometimes it may not be but most of the time my friends are very thankful for my advice and this makes me feel as though I'm a contributing member of society and that I'm doing something worthwhile. Good luck to you! Happy mylotting.

Hiya City, thanks for the response! Well, I don't always just hang back and play wall flower... I love to jump right in there too when I see something that interests me, or I can offer help to someone, or I can actually ask a question without being ridiculed... I'm always open to other's views and there have been a few times where someone has actually changed my point of view... just by being open, honest, respectful and nice and I love that about this place... Can't say everyone is this way, but for the most part my experience here has been nothing but positive!

Sometimes I do do that just every once in a while. It have been a while though since I've been on MyLot though. For freaking ever, and I've been too busy with school and I've almost completely forgotten about this poor place too! Anyway, to answer your question, really answer it this time. I do kinda like snooping around every so often. You just never know what you'll find on here. There are a lot of interesting discussions on here that you find when poking around.

No, I don't hang out because I'm lonely, sad, or bored. I log on because I want to see what's new. I log onto myLot almost every day, and often several times a day. I like seeing what discussions are going on. I answer some of the discussion questions, but other times I just read the question and then all the answers. I like myLot because members are from all over the world. Often I read about something I never heard of or thought of, and then I'll search for more information on the internet. myLot is a great learning experience.

I do almost every day I check in to see what everyone is up to but at night when everyone's asleep I love to fill the discussions with my comments. I get a kick out of what others post and say and how they respond to my posts. I love hearing my phone ring with the email notification. I can read all my messages where ever I am and it helps my day go by faster. I love MYLOT!!!

Hello Raven7317 , as for being bored and go on to mylot, no there is always something to do like more cleaning in the house. If I have nothing to do and all of my work is done I do like to come on to mylot and see what is happening.I've really liked being here. I especially like the movie discussions to get information on what others have to say about new movies and older movies.

I love to hang out on myLot and then a question like yours comes along and I can't resist commenting. I like to talk. It is part of my nature, so myLot helps me to get words out and communicate with others so that I don't wear out my family and friends. There is such a variety of subjects here that everyday is a whole new world. When you talk about perspective. I will share this with you. I was talking with my nephew yesterday. He has been through many hard times and relationships. He is in his mid 40's and his life is starting to straighten out. We were talking about how do people get offended. He was easily offended for years. Now he says that he stands back from a person who is saying something that he finds offensive and tries to look at them from a positive view instead of a negative view. He says that he now thinks about the good things of the person and walks away mentally from the junk and his negative filters. Thank you for your question.

I do this all the time actually, especially if things elsewhere are slow, and I don't have any other money-making ventures going on at the moment. I figure it is at least better to be on here putting a few coins in the account that not doing anything productive at all...

Hi Raven! You have started a good discussion with a nicely written note. Though I registered with myLot some three years back but I didn't participate much in that till a few days back. Thanks to myLot system's persistence in sending email regularly about top or important discussions taking place. Previously I thought why should I join actively for I won't be able to make much money here. But now my viewpoint has totally changed and I am not doing so with money factor in mind. I find it a very nice forum to share our problems, exchange pleasantries, get some respite from boredom and get back to your normal tasks with greater vigour and zeal.

Hi Stahir, thank you for your response and kind words! I don't really pay much attention to my earnings either, it's just an added bonus to me! I really just do this to keep interactive with the world!

Hi Raven! Thanks for your response. A thing to add that if we always keep money factor in everything and in particular myLot where you have lot of other things of your interest to get along, you may perhaps be not able to just do justice with either posing some good questions or giving good responses to myLot friends queries. Keep up the good work.

I do find myself hanging out on myLot a lot as I am just addicted to it since I joined. It is a great place to exchange ideas, chat with others and have a bit of fun. I have met some really good people on here and it is always fun to hang out in the discussions.

Yup, I also do that sometimes. Cause there are days that I can't think of a good topic and I can't find a good discussion to respond to, so I just try to browse on things.

Good day, Raven7317. Well, I always hang out in here because I got addicted in here. In fact, I am online for an average of eight hours a day. I always want to be updated in responding to my friend's discussions and other topics from my interests. I also check out if there are available tasks so that I can take a slot. Happy mylotting!
