    Didn't want to make a new thread about this, so this place is as good as any.

    So I've been on MFP a couple of times with different accounts, I first started in 2018 then came back when I went on a new health kick.

    Is it just me, or is the social aspect of the site completely different to how it was 4 years ago? Back then, I only kept a small friend list, but there was lots of interaction, liking of status, comments and general support. Even DMs, I felt like I got to know people.

    New account and every time I add new people, they either don't interact at all, or just fade away and not log in for months at a time. I feel like I've left a party, then come back after it has died down.

    Just me?

    It happens…

    Especially when you post at least one Dad joke in your feed every day, tends to drive them off.

    Dad jokes are funny… And hot.

    You'd think so right? While ago I posted something about how MFP rewards you for streaks, but if I try it in Starbucks I get told to put my clothes on and leave.

    Nobody was amused and not long after somebody deleted me B)

    I know the English sense of humour doesn't always translate, but come on!

    It is very different but…
    it also depends on your friends.
    I used to have too many friends now a small FL and I interact more with them and I’ve known them a long time.
    The changes in the forums is just plain weird.

    Lack of sense of humor I suppose. Lol

    There are still cool, interactive people out here. I recommend poaching my friends list. A couple of new people I’m not sure about yet and another couple that don’t interact a lot, but all good.

    Just accepted a job based out of LA. It's going to be tough to say goodbye to Germany after 5 amazing years here😅 and even tougher to start afresh.

    Wow…congratulations!

    But how exciting for you as a sweet, handsome, young man! 🥰
    An adventure ☺️
