I’m type 1.5.
When I need to name a baby, I come to ask questions. And when we’ve had the baby, I come to share the good news.
But then I stick around for a bit. Last time, about a year and a half ago, it was a month or so. Previous times have been similar. But this time, the birth of the baby coincided with my longest ever holiday from work (9 weeks). And I got addicted.
But I do pretty much question every single day why I am on NB. It’s so addictive, but the demographic of the community feels like 65% teenberries and 35% other female name nerds and .05% other males, like you @GenEric. Is it taking away from things I should legit be doing? Is it actually helping anyone — are any of my suggestions at all valuable? Is it how I want to be spending my time, when I have other bigger passions (languages, ancient history, writing, etc)? Is it robbing attention from fam? Etc.
I am not starved for community. I’m a very social person and have a good, local community and a big fam. But it’s just an addictive and easy thing to visit NB.
One of these days though, my conscience will direct me elsewhere and you won’t see me again for a few years.
