Who are you people ? Really I want to know ...

Howdy and thanks for dropping by my little thread. I ,as of late, have been wondering just who is playing Glitch these days (yeah I do weird things like that :). The old primary demographic of stay at home moms and retired persons seems to be shifting. I meet people of all ages and walks of life in Glitch, it's got that universal appeal thing going for it. Don't get me wrong I love stay at home moms and retired folk I just wanna know who the heck is here so I would really appreciate it if you could tell me a little about yourself. No need to write your life story or anything, not that that wouldn't be interesting, but just a few things like your sex, general age, social status, and what you do to fill your days when you aren't playing Glitch. Hey who knows you might even be weird like me and find this interesting :) In the very least you get entered in a random drawing to win 10 cubimal boxes just for taking the time to help me out. 

 I'll get the ball rolling.

Female , Age 40's , Not married, Self employed computer geek, nutritionist and keeper of other peoples stuff (aka caretaker)

  • Female, 20.  Busy being a potato.

    Is it that there are more women playing this game, or that more women who play this game are willing to admit that they are women in a forum post?

  • Muncey Mango makes me happy for playing Pokemon :D ( I have White 2 right now!)

    I also think that females tend to flock to each other because we are females and we like to talk about ourselves to some degree. Plus, we are just awesome, case closed!

  • Hi! I just started Glitch a few days ago, and I'm loving it so far! I've been looking for something like Glitch for a while, and I'm glad I can play it now :)

    I'm female, 21, and a student. I like knitting, cooking, and playing all sorts of video games! MMOs are a favorite of mine. Sadly my computer cannot handle most them, so it can be hard finding things to play.

  • Female, 50's, live in the Southwest, married, two great daughters who also play Glitch. Introduced to the game a little over a year ago by a good friend and co-worker, whose two daughters also play. I work as a manager, travel a fair bit (off to NYC at 7 tomorrow morning, so what am I doing writing this now ???) I have 3 cats (one annoying feral one), 1 dog, and I love gardening, sewing, sleeping in. Glitch is way too addictive (says the hubs, who for once if right!).

  • @whimpypotato, I read your username as "why am I a potato" at first. made your post even funnier.

    maybe all these females are just, as they say on other video game forums, Guys In Real Life? errr....probably doesn't apply here.

    also, I'm female. seriously. :p

  • Slugbug, I've found that many of those here who play with their online gender roles are often honest about who they are in real life.  Glitch seems to be a relatively safe place for that.  Also, there've been some anonymous demographic polls that indicate an unusually high number of women playing the game, so I think there may be a small margine of error here.

    But I think one of the coolest things about Glitch is the high number of older players.  Makes for a maturity level and a friendly culture that you don't see on most other games and networks.  Not that age is better than youth, but that the MIX is really good.

  • Female, mid 20's (and will be even older in Dec! Hooray birthdays!), I run a pet care company by day and am an actor by night, I supplement my income and passion with being a standardized patient at one of the local medical schools when they've got gigs I'm good for.

    What else are people mentioning? All hail Trisor! The TRUE giant! :) Um, not married, no kids (but one adorable Monster of a dog), uhhhhhhhh super not girly. I'd rather be out hiking or biking or running (just ran my first full marathon a few weeks ago) than going to have my nails done or something of that nature. Actually, I hate spending money on stuff like that. I can paint my own darn nails (kinda). As for makeup, you want to look like a lion or zombie or zombie lion, I can do that. Look like a girl? Um, what's a smokey eye?

    Been on Glitch for over a year and, I'll be honest, getting a little bored with it right now. So I'll probably be on less and less until after the holidays. Which is good, because I start rehearsals for my next show tonight anyway and will be nice and busy until Christmas.

    Ummmmm I LOVE traveling. Actually looking at moving across the world (from the US to Australia) for a year and hopefully adding a second year in New Zealand. Because I can.

    I also tend to ramble. Sometimes.

    :)

  • Female. 35. I live in the greater Boston area after moving here from Georgia, before that, Minnesota, but I'm originally from Ohio. I bring this up because I am currently a stay-at-home mom looking for work teaching, editing, writing, admin assistant, etc. I have one boy and three kooky cats.

    I am an English major with degrees in English and Creative Writing. I write poetry and am working on two novels. I will be starting a teaching job for an online university. My first class will be Introduction to Film. Although I have a lot of experience teaching, I also like editing work and audio. One of my favorite jobs was being a jazz dj for public radio in the mid-late 90s!

    But I've been playing Glitch for over a year and it's still tons of fun! I don't have a Giant affiliation yet, but am leaning toward Spriggan. We'll see how it goes. I love learning about everyone!

  • Female, 22, soon to be married (yep, I tell everyone about it, I'd be happy to be yelling it from the highest building :D), from Sweden. No kids yet, but a lot of off road vehicles. Yes, I've named my old JEEP... ^^ Works full time with machine embroidery on workwear, and have a (very) small company of my own also in machine embroidery but that specializes in home decor.

    Don't really know how long I've been playing Glitch, but at least long enough to realize that I feel at home here. That's the only time frame I need here.

  • Female, 30's , Married no children, 1 dog , 1 Guinea Pig. Been playing since Beta 1. I used to volunteer at animal shelters....until i crashed my car...oops! So i ended up being online a lot due to no car, not enough money to get another one, and being on disability.  Not proud of having to file for disability, my hand was forced on that, couldn't keep myself in check, my issues were leaking...everywhere,  but it was always an inevitability anyways :S. I live in Michigan , most of my family lives locally, which is both a positive and negative. I try to see topics / issues from both sides of the argument , some things i cant but generally the world is more grey than black and white. At times i can get out of control joking around, but when i catch myself doing so i TRY to back off, not always successful, but i do TRY! Currently i pop in mostly to chat and feed my pigs, and garden, im on a bit of a break from the game, and am playing the other games i frequent, i rotate which games i play, but i DO always come back to Glitch, i love both the game and the community!

    Since the comment was made about there being so many females around, I should note that it was my girlfriend who introduced me to the game.
