Support and connect

Being drawn to a fan community can have positive and negative effects.

  • Fandoms can help support and connect individuals, providing a space for long-lasting friendships and romantic relationships to form.
  • Fandom can help us discover who we are and what we want out of life.
  • Learning everything about a particular fan can help give focus, skills and knowledge that you can aspire to.
