Is that why so much in WAYWRN looks like shit?
Sorry couldn't help myself.
That's a very interesting idea. I think that I went through each of those 8 steps fairly quickly. I was gone for about a month or two, and I recently popped back in because I had PM's. In all honesty, the few posts that I've made since then have been more fluffy than substantive, so I'll probably be gone again soon. I think that I've reached the point of "enough" knowledge and "enough" clothing.
I think I'm somewhere between 5 and 6, though more for myself as I don't write as much on the forum. I can imagine leaving the forum at some point, but probably because I won't have the time to visit, not because I've lost interest. I'll always strive to look good Though I agree, some probably "graduate" from the forum and lose interest, as there's nothing new to learn for them.
Ha, I see this has already spread all over tumblr.
