Because for many of us, joining the group is the story.
Wow epic answer.
I'm new here and have not yet looked through the groups, however your statement does indeed say it all. Great answer.
best answer :)
thanks chica ;)
Maybe they just see the group and think, "That sounds like me" and they add it. <br />
I mean, who really needs to write a story to "I Like Chocolate"? It is what it is.
Whilst I think sometimes it might be difficult to expose yourself I think personally to join a group you should share your common interests with the others in that group- otherwise it can feel a bit like visiting the zoo
Sometimes I feel that my story is just a repeat of the same story I've told in other related groups, and it seems silly to spam the same story multiple times.
Very true. Some people do post exactly the same story against several experiences. I've always assumed people do that for extra EP tokens.
There ought to be a law!
Lack of confidence maybe.
I ask this very same question 2 1/2 yrs ago , my conclusion is they are liars , they don't have the experience they only want the prestige of having boned the president of a foreign country or fighting off Somali warriors with their bare hands and that's why they don't have a story to tell
LOL ! And every imaginable experience is here, from the obscure "I'm Still Waiting For The 15 Minutes of Fame Andy Warhol Promised" to the mundane "I Found a Rare Tropical Beetle in My Salad"...
yeah I always wanted to join the "Lesbians for Jesus" group but I didn't have a story
Perhaps they just don't wish to share stories on particular experiences.
Yes, an opportunity, but not a requirement. Some experiences may have a much greater significance for people than others so perhaps they choose to share stories on just a few.
shy, perhaps 'like' the page but have trouble expressing themselves. so what if they don't write. bet they still comment!
Some groups I join for amusement, some for camaraderie, some to show a common experience, and some for which I have a story to share. If I don't have something new to add to the group stories by sharing a story, then just joining seems like enough.
What am I supposed to write in groups like "I admire Indian and Arab beauty" lool
You could say why you like it and make comparisons to beauty in your own culture (which I guess is Western).
I only join groups to meet like minded people, and I contribute my stories to encourage them to be my friend. Except fpr a few groups I join for amusement, like "I like jokes and riddles" or "I have a funny story to tell" I contribute there to but finding friends is not a priority
I really can't say I enjoyed mine, but waking up to that beautiful nurse was a pleasure
Someone mentioned that you get points for joining groups and rack up a lot of groups to gain points. I usually find a group because I have a story to contribute where it would be most appropriate.
I've seen people that belong to over 20,ooo groups. That baffles me.
Yes. It's like people who have thousands of "friends". I only add people I think I'll enjoy talking with. I don't know how people with 5000+ friends would manage that.
i don't even remember joining groups , i think it just happens somehow
sometimes it really is
Perhaps it's not that easy! I tried to do so this evening but EP forced my experience under a title that while relevant was actually the opposite of what I was trying to say.
