“Because I’m shy and not doing anything interesting like people traveling or doing cool things. I go to work, come home, cook, go to the gym, and sleep. The most exciting, boring life to show off.”

“Not single anymore but was for nearly four years.

I got off because it made me miserable. Seeing all the people I grew up with succeeding wildly at life, becoming influencers, having their parents buy their houses as graduation gifts, and landing top-tier jobs before they even graduated college. Just graduating on time. It made me truly genuinely miserable.”

“Other than Reddit, I’m not on anything you’d call social media. Don’t have Facebook, don’t have Twitter, don’t have Tiktok, don’t have Tumblr. I do have Discord and WhatsApp, but I wouldn’t really call that social media; I just use them to call friends. I never even really joined a server on Discord.

My reason is that I’m a loner 90% of the time and don’t feel like I want people snooping around in my private life. If you need to know, you’d know. I hate the idea of some random people from China or something googling my name and reading what I did last night.”

“It’s mostly fake – bots or ‘fake’ low-quality people. Spend enough time there, and it’ll warp your perception of life.”

“I’m married but haven’t been on anything since 2008 (Facebook), and never signed up for anything before or after. Life is worth experiencing on its own, and I certainly have enough other things to distract me and also to keep me busy. I’m late Gen X and miss those last years when we weren’t all plugged into the Matrix yet!”

“I’m not comfortable with the concept of having a large portion of my life set out for the public to view or even for a broad audience of people who know me specifically. The people I want in my life know how to reach me.”

“In short, I found it depressing. Full of negative, bad stereotypes and racism, always present attempts of brainwashing by various groups. All dipped in dark, sticky, and smelly woke sauce.

No, thanks. I have a life and love it.”
