Has it made you more cynical (every story is fake - everyone is a troll), or more open-minded after encountering women from varied backgrounds and beliefs?

It varies...  I am very cynical when it comes to attention type "poor me" stories, but have learned a lot on other subjects that are open for debate. 

I am always open to new facts...

I never know who is really on here, cm. IRL, I have seen all types, and I hold an open mind. No one person has the same story as another, so its always interesting to hear other military spouses stories.

I have always been very cynical. CM hasn't changed me. I just think some of these bitches are crazy.

Yeah that victim crap is annoying, but sometimes a person is really going through some tough stuff, and I am willing to have compassion for them. One thing I've been noticing is jealous moms, I can just tell. I guess my life is their dreams come true! Lmao

Stop talking about me. You know I want to be just like you when I grow up.

There is a difference though, between someone reaching out cause things are just piling up and the "poor me" posts I have seen... 

I have no doubt that things pile on and people come to vent and seek help and everything else - but there are a LOT more out there who are just attention whores...

I think after a while you can tell who is being for real and who is just looking for attention. My level of cynicism fluctuates depending on whether I think the person is sincere or if they're just trying to grab the spotlight.

Then there are some posts that I read and think, OMG....there are really people out there who are that stupid??

Attention whores, to just whores! Lol I know what you mean. I avoid that type of interaction.
