This is a topic that comes up so frequently on my friends list that I just want to state my position on it here.
At some point practically everyone on LiveJournal wonders aloud why their deepest, most personal posts get almost no comments while everyone has something to say on their silliest, most vapid posts.
I'm here to tell you that it's not just you, it doesn't mean anything is wrong with you, and it doesn't mean people don't care. It means we don't know what to say. I mean, do you really want me to make some stupid, vapid comment on a post that clearly means a lot to you?
Sometimes it's hard to know what to say on the important stuff. But everyone's got an opinion on silly stuff. It's a lot easier to discuss your favorite Survivor than deep, life-and-death type issues for most people.
Just a thought.
For my own curiosity, I just took the Match.com "What do you find attractive?" test and boy, was that a waste of time.
The test informed me that I'm very picky and only like matinee-idol looks. Well, did it occur to you that maybe you should have included more diverse pictures? I didn't see many pictures of the geeky boys I always crush on, and in fact, when in the results it showed two pictures and labeled them "most conventionally attractive guy you picked" and "least conventionally attractive guy you picked," I found the "least" far more attractive in all cases.
I'm just pissed because I feel like the test gave me shallow options and then bitched at me for giving shallow answers. I know it was pretty accurate for some of you, but just about the only thing it got right for me was that I like angular features.
Of course, now I'm stuck with the uncomfortable feeling that maybe I really am shallow...
