    I'm thinking of joining a cult. That way I'll have an instant social life and won't have to worry about being rejected. All I have to do is follow their agenda. What do you think?

    I don't think it's a good idea but it's your life.
    hope you do lots of research on cults before you decide

    Congratulations, you've decided to join Christianity!

    Oh no wait, it's not that cult? Then which one?

    Interesting question. I was raised in a cult, not a hugely restrictive one, but a cult nonetheless. It's true that you will probably get instant social acceptance, once you learn to play by their rules. As a child, I could not know that I was being indoctrinated, but you as an adult might be able to keep your essential self intact behind a facade of compliance... or not. It took me a lot of years to un-learn behaviors instilled in me in childhood, and I still have challenges in that area at the age of 45.

    I agree with IV2010; do the research before you decide to join up. I myself would run like hell in the opposite direction, no matter how alone I was. I prefer to keep my own morality and beliefs about how to interact with the world.

    Good luck.

    Actually, I'm not serious about joining a cult. I wanted to hear your reactions 'cause I know it's an absurd thing to post.

    Thats it! I vote we start a petition to have you drafted into a random cult!
