I have a hard time sometimes as well. Generally I pop by but so many new people and I am not so much interested in the dolls these days.

Every few month I come back here.

I'm sure there's so may new cliques and people that have no idea who I am. I'm just some guy who used to be on this forum a lot. I'm not especially AFP/DD-centric, so that's part of it. I'm into way too many different bands to be devoted only to one. But I didn't come here initially to talk Dresden Dolls, I came here because Seaann/whatever he's called now/ liked my youtube cover of Girl A. on guitar and I found a bunch of friendly, local, artsy folk.

Real life things happened in my life because of this forum.

Why am I having such a hard time coming back here? and staying?

It's not because of age. I turn 26 in a few months and yet I still love interacting with artists/enthusiasts/thinkers of any age.


Please. Engage me.
I want to be re-hooked. I love you people.

this will certainly be of no help whatsoever, but why do you care about fitting into some 'Box clique or other?

Just start shooting your mouth off. it's all I've ever done here.

i've decided that coming back here and being more honest about who i am is only going to help make me a better person :)

So, can we start by admitting that you are not actually a legume?

People aren't completely honest about themselves here?

If prompted or asked, I have zero fear in being honest, but I don't flaunt every little thing without reason. Just sayin.

Orig. post

I feel you, mang. I hit the road a few years ago, and peer in from time to time. Forgot my old name, made a new one. Age may play a part...I'm 36 now. Reading what I've seen the last few days, it's (the conversation) all the same, where as I am not. I read up on what's going on with the people I once new (if I can find them) and, for the most part, remain silent. Meh. *shrug*

This I know, kind sir, however, it can make our conversations with others very different. :)

qft. Checking the 'box isn't number one on my daily to-do list anymore. I miss a lot of the 'old' people that aren't around as much (or aren't around at all) like they used to.

i do agree that the box has become a less relevent forum since the advent of twitter....also it does seemdominated by teen girls discussing hot boys/girls and less focussed on art and Amanda and the Dolls....simple answer..start actually discussing the things that interest you  (including hot teens)

I tried that, hell threads on serious matters just don't have legs here anymore.  So I check in once in awhile to these boards and maybe the upper ones once every 6 months or so.
