Re: I spend more time on MyFICO than Facebook! Am I losing my mind?

You are not alone.  I have been addicted to this Forum for the past 3 weeks (Sept 15th start date).  Passion for credit excellance is just the start for me.  It is the behavioral changes needed to keep my credit history clean for the future.  This forum is a great support channel.  Your testimonal is a great motivator for folks like me who appreciate the success stories of others.  Thank you for Sharing... Keep up the good work...

I got a kick out of that same realization awhile back when I noticed the first result after typing f was for FicoForums. I now no longer have Facebook.

Ha people still use Facebook??  It all goes down in the dm's anyways!  Really though never had Facebook. Never understood people I knew(know) that would take a pic of what they were eating to post on there. Seemed like a waste of time living some fake virtual life. 

Signed up here and been hooked. Wake up and check my bank accounts, credit reports, credit cards and next stop is myfico. And that happens many times through out the day. 

 

**forgot to add. I must keep myself away from the approvals section. Every time I read an approval I think in my head "dang I should apply for that one, oh that one sounds good, should I break out of the garden for one more?"  That section is bad for me


You'll get over it. I was the same way when I started gardening. Sooner or later you'll realize that it's the same cards and everyone has similar datapoints so there's no point in looking anymore. 


You right. Honestly it's the whole can't have it that makes you want it. I'm staying strong and sticking to my gardening date. There are only a few more cards I want to get anyways. A couple from NFCU and a couple more from Amex and I'm good. And grow the ones I got. 👍🏽







Gardening until 09/2021

I'd say that puts you smack dab in the middle of charmingly sane. First off, the folks here are a great deal more pleasant. They're also a heck of a lot more helpful. It sure is a relief to be free of those earth shattering disputes, such as whether the band from Athens, GA is R.E.M. or REM. (Yes, that was a real dispute!) The cherry on top of the FICO sundae is how unlikely it is that you will encounter any of your toxic family members.
