You're not alone, shyguyflys, I've been lurking the board than participating because there is simply no new gossip to talk about Mark nowadays. He's getting better at keeping his life even more private than it already is; although he does slip up from time to time i.e. the whole officially sharing the Grump's office and living space. I'm surprise none of us have been discussing that juicy tidbit, but the people over at the Markiplier and Game Grumps Conspiracy subreddit forums have (even if the Markiplier reddit fans are policing themselves because heaven to god let's not be like the members of this board).
As for Mark's love life, I find it hilarious that people are so infatuated by it. It's clear that Mark, not Markiplier, is not in that part of his life yet. He doesn't want to settle down just yet. His life is just beginning, and getting tied down by a girlfriend/lover/wife will limit him in his career. Why is it so difficult to believe that a guy can have a happy-go-lucky life without being in a romantic relationship? My little brother is 23, and he hasn't had a girlfriend yet nor is he looking. I'm 25, and I haven't had a boyfriend yet. Not looking neither. And I live a happy life without the headache and drama of a romantic relationships (then again, we all know the reason for this obsession over it since one of you has confessed to it).
But, that isn't my issue at the moment. My issue over us rehashing old information (which can be read from page 3 to 25) and bringing up old irrelevant information is due to one thing and one thing alone. People believe we, this board, are responsible for the doxxing and bullying of a previous mod that we believed was his current girlfriend from way back then, so I believe it might be a good idea to move on from the irrelevant people, who are no longer in his life, as they are no longer of importance and stop getting them more followers because it's clear most of her followers are after info as we were, not because they believe they're witty, talented, nor cute. I, personally, don't want to inflate nor deflate their ego or make the whole referring to them turn into a "oh noes the big mean board is being mean to me" as a way to get attention like a certain cosplay youtuber has done in the past. What was her name? SuperMary or something?
Also, shipping Markiplier, not Mark, with other people is fine and he's cool with it as long as it doesn't cross from fantasy to reality, and we don't write up mature rated fanfiction about it because he clearly feels uncomfortable by those. I find it funny how his fans ignore that one simple request of his -- writing mature-rated fanfiction of him. Which, by the way, I don't blame him for because I'd feel extremely uncomfortable about strangers from the internet creating those type of stories too. Especially ones where I'm dating an underage fan.
Actually, how are we not discussing this issue along with this one girl over at Twitter who is pretending to be Mark's girlfriend and believes she is dating him just because she send him a few tweets asking him "if they were dating and if he doesn't respond then they are officially dating". I'm extremely surprised about that along with the Twitter drama that happened a month ago about a fan sending Mark overly-sexualized tweets. Along with two porn stars from Twitter sending him tweets to follow them and he'll get free pictures of them. Has no one really mentioned any of that juicy news? That is a lot more interesting than any of this current discussion over the reason we even find him attractive and whatnot.
I'm sorry if this whole post comes off condescending or whatever, but I'm getting a little frustrated by it all. Really frustrated as I originally joined this board to discuss gossip and we haven't done any of that which is disappointing as heck.
