I was browsing though SAS threads tonight and was a little surprised to find some people using this site primarily as a dating site. I was so set on this being a support forum for people with Social Anxiety Disorder that it completely escaped my mind that people might be using it for other reasons. I found it very interesting actually, so I decided to make a poll out of curiousity's sake.

What are you primarily looking to get out of Social Anxiety Support? (I'm sure you all have several reasons. I do too. But I'm curious about your primary motive for participating on the site.) Please feel free to explain your answers.

Edit: Okay, initially I had trouble figuring out the whole poll thing. But now I fixed it and everything is good. I win!

mine are the first three:

1. Finding support to better deal with my Social Anxiety
2. Giving support to help people with Social Anxiety
3. Make friends with similar others

I give and get support here. It also helps kill time when I'm bored.

Most everything except the dating part, but I mostly find that I don't really get along with people here so it's more just a place for me to express myself without getting anxious or in an argument.

Give and receive support. Discuss other topics. Troll. :)

I wonder how many of the people here for dating purposes would be honest about it.

safe haven to be around like minded people.

I like to have somewhere online that feels like a home, a starting point and I consider sas to be that. It's the only forum I visit daily.

Pretty much this. I dont really post anywhere else on the internet.

My primary reasons when i joined was finding out more about SAD, support and reading other people experiences. I've got quite tired of that though.

Give support to to others, learn about SA and how it affects people(big eye opener), be amongst people who feel similiar to how I feel, learn more about myself by reading here and asking questions...and that's about it.

Intellectual conversation and discussion.
And humour: a lot of people with social anxiety tend to have a great sense of humour.

When I first joined, it was about giving & receiving support. Now I kinda just stay for interesting topics. It's a good time waster & distraction. :b I don't know - I kinda just enjoy this place.

I stay because it's a good distraction and I've grown to like/respect certain posters and have made some friends here and I enjoy seeing what they're up to and what they have to say about things.

I like it here because it's the only online community i've found where there's actually people who have things in common with me. So they can understand what i'm saying and i can read other people's posts and sometimes see myself in those words. I guess here i feel the most comfortable posting things about myself cause people actually understand some of the things i say.
