I wont lie, i was obsessed with bigfoot, as sad as that is. I was.

Every night when i got in from work I'd go on youtube hoping another bigfoot video would have been posted during the day. I would click on bigfoot websites to see if any new posts had been made. I would go as far as to say it was borderline obsession before i kicked it into touch.
My partner would curse me for being stupid and childish for believing such drivvel.

I was but a skidmark on the bigfoot society compared to some, who are, fully formed dungs.
I used to want to go exploring the american wilderness for bigfoot when i believed. Now i am interested in why others dedicate there lives to searching for the big man.

Are you obsessed with bigfoot?
Does a day go by where you don't think of bigfoot a least once?
Do you scour the net looking for news of sightings or anything new in the world of bigfoot?
Do you go out into the wild praying you will have an encounter?

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

I used to be obsessed with Bigfoot, then like most people I turned 9 years old.

Hell, I went as far as to do a science fair project on Bigfoot.  But like I said, I turned 9.

I wouldn't go so far to say I'm obsessed, but I am interested in the possibility of this creature being around, probably more than I care to admit. I didn't really get interested in it until about twenty some years ago. Read several books on the subject, which after reading them I realized they were geared around the reader needing to be a believer in order to over look some of the omissions and the inconsistencies. Then too, the photos are more a collection of Blobsquatch photos which drive me nuts. Then you have the hoaxers, liars, and general psychopaths and "groupies" for lack of a better term, now with the internet you have this whole community built around anything Bigfoot related.......and then this train wreck that is Rick Dyer.....OMG!

I have a theory about Rick Dyer and why he is so big on bigfoot.  I think he was molested by an especially tall, fat, hirsute man.  That is the only plausible explanation I have been able to come up with over the years with his special brand of psychopathy regarding bigfoot.

danbell, everytime I look at your avatar I see Stefan Richter from Top Chef!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

I guess you could say I'm obsessed with the people who are obsessed with bigfoot.

Actually, I have to agree with that, people who are seriously obsessed are interesting to watch, most of them have never actually spent time looking for the creature, they've never spent any time in the woods, they have little to no woodman skills. They wouldn't know a Bigfoot print from a bear print and would most likely faint upon seeing one.......then they disappear and become slaves in the Bigfoot Breeding Program. Which does serve to make more Bigfoots so I suppose it's all good in the end.

I think like most folks, Bigfoot was my first cryptid crush thanks to shows like In Search Of.  And, frankly, I'd think there would be nothing cooler than for him to exist.  But unfortunately, the evidence just isn't there.

Above is exactly where I am.

At one time, not sure how young, up to about 15, I " believed ". Because I saw a movie, read a few books, and went to the Bigfoot museum. From 16 to 21 I had other things on my mind.....From 22 to about 30, I thought there may be a possibility, from watching " documentaries ". I started to realize it has been a long time with claims, yet no bodies. I bow hunted from around age 17 to 37, and know many hunters, loggers, etc. This along with this site, started my education.

I stopped listening to monsterquest, and claims on the internet. I started reading about everything from no bodies, environment, breeding population, and my and friends experiences hunting, hiking, fishing. It did not take long to " wake up " and know that there is no way this thing exists.

I then kept being active in Bif topics, debating back and forth, stating facts, with links and back up. I tried to convince people to open their eyes and brains.

I stopped doing that. It is a broken record, same claims, same things debated, same facts pointed out and ignored. It is just another year, and new people.

I have all ways had a interest in why do people believe in ghosts and such. About everything can be shown to be a real, mundane thing, yet that is ignored by anyone with a strong faith. ( blind faith, belief ). This also goes for Bigfoot.

Now I just try to figure out the psych of people like this, what makes them put up blinders to even do research themselves, and not count on other people to do it.

" google it yourself ".

The answers are there, yet some do not want to see them.

This is a addiction if you ask me, and congratulations on joining the " sober " ones.....These addictions go on and on. People contributing to known hoaxers, frauds, and liars by having discussions about them, and debating on the " why's, how's, and " what could be's ".....And / or replying in every Bigfoot topic there is, a number of times. If this is you, and are debating " what if's " , you are a addict.......To me, that is interesting, and a bit entertaining at times.

People can be obsessed by numerous things, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, forum members, and the " paranormal ".......

There is a cure, and the cure is educating ones self, and admitting you have a problem.

All of the frauds out there ( BFRO ) and others, are making hand over fist $$$$ from the addicts like this. " Finding Bigfoot " should not have had a second season, yet people give in, and people by the merchandise.....Make them get real jobs I say !

Not obessed but greatly fascinated because I believe they are real. Just too many reputable people have seen them for it to be fake. People of every race, culture, ethnicity have spotted this animal on almost every continent except antartica. All of these people are not stupid, lunatics, or hoaxers.

Personally I believe "bigfoot" may be the missing link or its some sort of relative to humans.

Posted 23 March 2013 - 12:16 AM

I have to kind of wonder if maybe there isn't something in our genetic make up that sort of locks us into belief. When I look at the actual evidence and don't count the stuff that could be faked then there isn't really anything to hang a belief on. Nill, Zip, nada. And yet, I can't help but wonder about them and if they're real or not. People keep claiming to see them, some people very reputable that you can't just blow off.

Then you have to things like with Rick Dyer now, and while I don't include the BFRO in his category they are making money from their show, so they have a vested interest in keeping the myth going. The good news is they haven't claimed to have shot one or have one in a freezer or squirreled away until they can make a movie about it.

Maybe it's us rather than a real creature, maybe it makes us tap into some primal thing locked up in our circuitry.

I agree 100%. Before i joined this site all i knew was the patterson gimlin film and that, for me, was enough to make me believe.

That didnt last long...

There was no telling me it was all a myth before i joined UM.
When i started posting and getting replies from people I started to think logically.

Bigfoot is a "moneymaker".

Its definately NOT what i would call a job. I've got a honest job, I'm a self employed bathroom fitter and i work 6 days a week, 8-6 and somedays i work as late as it takes to finish a job.
That is what a real job is..
