Is Fluther therapeutic for you?

Asked by dreamer31 (1932points) February 20th, 2011

I just recently joined Fluther and I have found it to be my favorite ‘computer community’. I find it humorous and fun to see other peoples’ perspectives on things. I catch myself laughing out loud at things noone else in my house can understand.
Do you find it therapeutic and if so, why?

Yes…I have found at my lowest times for Fluther to be a “safe haven” of sorts when I need to talk to someone and don’t feel like I can talk to anyone in person about it because they would be judgmental. I don’t think I’ve quite reached the point where I laugh out loud at things on Fluther yet, but I do generally appreciate that everyone on the board has meaningful things to say for the most part.

Not so much ‘therapeutic’ as ‘a great way to spread contagion’.

Used to but not as much any more.

No but I get very useful information here from many people whose opinions I have grown to trust. Primarily, the collective helps me with the mysterious cat with whom I now share a life.

I think it was, early on, when I first joined Fluther. As time passed, it just became a familiar and friendly place to share thoughts and comments with friends and ‘hang out’ in an online kind of way. It’s always an enjoyable experience.

I am therapeutic for fluther.

Hmm not therapeutic, it is a great procrastination tool for me though and I do like reading the comments from other people and some of the Zombie type posts make me laugh, so that’s healthy.

dreamer31: I laugh quite often too! I just love some of the answers people give. And it’s amazing how quickly you get a sense of who’s who. It’s very therapeutic for me in that I love the stories and the intellectual discourse. I love hearing the varied viewpoints. I even love the arguments sometimes!

In a way, yes it is. It’s nice to see intellectual conversations and questions more than once every six months! :D
