The “personal survey’s” people put in their profiles for social sites are so silly to me. I get the first few questions about hair and eye color and all that stuff cause for some ungodly reason people “need” to know that stuff (and because most of them aren’t smart enough to, you know, look at the pictures you’ve posted xD). But the rest of the survey, like 95% of it, is questions like “do you like coke or pepsi” or “favorite pizza topping”… really, WHO THE FUCK CARES!!!! I can understand your friends learning that kind of stuff over the years, but who the hell needs to know (or even wants to know) that kind of stuff when they don’t even know you? Also, why would anyone want to put that kind of stuff out there for a stranger to read? I would find it creepy if some random person came up to be and started going “so I read you liked Coke and pepperoni…” xD
Maybe I am a bit weird in “today’s world” but stuff like that, those little details that just make up the quirks about you, should be something that you learn from talking and hanging out, not from a little list on a profile before you even say a word. I am not saying it’s wrong to have a bit of background on a person before chatting with them, but that background shouldn’t be about their favorite subject in school. Sites like (insert popular social media site here) almost always take care of stuff like that with the “interests” section… you know, where you list your damn interests! And please make them ones that are actually relevant to starting a meaningful conversation, like: what kind of movies you like or what music… honestly, how long and enjoyable a conversation can you have talking about how much you like Pepsi??)
Ah well, just something silly I thought I would bring up because I was just looking at one of those stupid things. Granted, I have filled out a few in my day, however “in my day” they were sent between people who were already friends and then you would laugh and joke when a friend was all “I didn’t know you liked that! I thought you liked this…” That is perfectly acceptable, it’s just the whole stranger thing that bothers me… which is kind of a silly thing to talk about as I type this up and any stranger across the world could read it, but I think most people will understand what I mean. I have no problem with strangers learning a bit about me and then starting up a conversation, but knowing every little detail about my likes and dislikes and interests and so on and so forth before I have even said more than a sentence to them is just creepy and I would hit instant block on anyone like that xD
My life exists in a digital world where anyone can dig up a lot of history on me, but really, if you want to know about me = TALK TO ME!!! I enjoy conversation (and talking to me will certainly guarantee that your information is accurate haha!) Don’t “look me up,” just say hi, I will like you better for it.
