I go to thinking the other day about just how much I like soaps - especially passions. And I realized, I had never really sat down before and contemplated why before. I personally began watching soaps when I was around 7 with my mom, so I guess being exposed to it early on could be the reason why. But then I thought about why I keep watching them everyday. What is it that makes me want to watch? So I came to the conclusion that I watch it because through the show, you are able to get to know people and just watch how their lives turn out. There are characters that you can connect with and hate with a passion. I think soaps really just involve viewers in their own unique way. Once I figured that out I was curious to see why other people watch soaps. What makes soaps so appealing to you?
