    I don't necessarily think that's true. I think the traits you've said above apply to a lot of people. I think you just think that a lot of people on here are like that because on the internet people are more open about who they are.

    Think about it... Loads of people are virgins, but no one would just say this in real life would they? Yet on the internet it's just easier and no one can judge you for it on here as it's a forum...
    yeah loads of people are virigins, but im pretty sure people will admit to it in real life, is just that on tsr when they talk about it they blow it out of portion by asking weird questions and making a big deal about it

    I feel like TSR is a safe haven for people to express their personal views, stories and experiences anonymously without facing judgement. Similar to a therapist or doctor if you will.
    fair enough I understand your points

    Well the two most recent threads are "If you mum was a pornstar would it bother you?" and "Are you socially awkward?" So it's not really hard to notice lol. I also saw a thread before that lets you test how autistic you are

    Well I am only two of those things at most. But personally I am more able to express myself through text, and find it rather engaging and perhaps sometimes therapeutic to do so. It is often a platform where I can say what I really think, with many threads on many different topics. It is a way to pass the time and I enjoy the weird style of community. Firstly I got into it because of, as you'd imagine, studies, A level in particular, and have had great help on here and enjoyed being of help to many people as well. That is another aspect; during exam season it is nice to feel useful and helpful lol.

    I'm quite an extroverted person in real life. I joined to discuss GCSEs and academics and what not. My friends in real life are disinterested in this so it was a useful platform for me to use

    whys it like 90% of people on tsr, have : no friends, introverted, a nerd, or is a virgin.

    I just dont understand why, is this what tsr appeals to for people?
    TSR for the majority is a way to share experiences, get help and advice on study, applying to uni and all the things that come about with being a young adult such as relationships, health and general wellbeing. Considering most of us are in some form of education it is easy to see why most people use this site.

    Your first comment is just not true at all, most people using TSR have friends, not all are introverted (and there is nothing at all wrong with that anyway). Being nerdy is nothing to be ashamed of, I see it more as a strive to want to achieve. and as for your later comment, its up to the person what they do in their personal life and there is nothing at all to be ashamed about being a virgin!

    I make an effort to speak to everyone because the "nerds" are the ones who will be able to help out with coursework, homework etc. Though i am seen as the "nerd" amongst my friends

    Fair enough. It's probably because between y7-9 I didn't care about school but still stuck with the same friends y10-11.

    I like TSR though. It's interesting.

    Or writing, whatever. Non-verbal is the point. In everyday conversation I find myself never quite getting to the point I want to get to, or not quite being able to get people to understand what I mean, as I don't have time to choose my words more carefully and usually something weird, inane, or technically slightly different to what I'm really thinking comes out. I dunno, I sort of think I have some degree of Asperger's, but at the same time I'm excellent at those "reading the mind in the eyes" things and I can certainly see things from other people's point of view and understand things on an emotional and empathetic level, so idk.

    Technology did not make me like this though lol; I have always been a very good essay writer for instance, but teachers got much less intelligent (or at least, intelligent sounding) responses when they asked me verbal questions... I suppose TSR is very suited for anyone with these sorts of traits. In general I never really have anything particularly offensive to say, or I frame things in a way to avoid conflict, and this comes naturally to me, as I am somewhat uncomfortable being combative. So I haven't found TSR's ban hammer to be a problem yet in spite of the meat of what I have said being often quite divergent from the standard narratives and potentially very offensive if handled with less...tact, I suppose. I somewhat admire those who do not feel the need to be tactful or deferential and are confident in what they think but I do.

    You're like 5 ft 3, 80lbs and you go on as if you're a chick magnet who has no time to associate with peasants on TSR. WHY ARE YOU ON TSR THEN? SMH
