    Obviously people will know if there popular or not. Does being popular on here or your pics being popular help you out in real life too, in anyway ? The way I personally look at it IF someone's life isn't all that great. When it comes down to it being popular/your pics being popular , really isn't going to make much difference at all in your 'real life'.

    Don't need too. A lot of fakeness around anyway. It's a fair question which i'm intrigued about. It's about how does being on here effect your real life or not.

    This DOESN'T "spill over" into real life.
    Here is for HERE. IMO.

    Fair enough. I'd agree with that view. Makes no difference to a persons 'real life'. If 'real life' isn't so great then being on these sites wont change it.

    If there is "fakeness" around, what makes you think you'll get a real answer?

    I don't think we are here to change anything. I am pretty average chubby middle aged women. Being here isn't gonna change that!

    It won't change that but it can change how you feel about yourself. Good or bad.

    I do think some people see being 'popular' on here as 'real'. And think some how it's going to change their real lives. Nothing obviously will change that apart from doing something about it in 'real life'.

    It has actually changed who I feel about myself. I never felt sexy or attractive before coming to these site! I have found I can be.
    I hated my body especially my boobs! I still don't like my body but I am okay with the boobs lol!

    I don't see that! It's totally separate. We are all here for different reason. It's just fun and hobby. Nothing I take into my real life with me.

    The point is feeling better about yourself on here because a few people comment your pics, is all good. But it's a whole different thing doing something about thing's in 'real life' that someone might not be happy about. So my opinion is it really does not make much difference at all when it comes to 'life' whether someone is popular or not on here.

    You don't see anyone doing that, ok fair enough. I can see that some people thrive on the attention they get here, as though it's a massive life achievement.

    Your fun and just a hobby view though and it's nothing that you take into real life. Yeah that's how I see it although having 'fun' here can depend on very much who you are.

    I would say how people perceive you on here reflect real life. If you are an ass on here you probably are in real life. If you are having problems with people not liking you and this bothers you perhaps you should change. Whether they are right or wrong does not matter if they do not like you. If most people on here did not like me I would leave. I do not wish to be where I am not wanted.
