Don't misunderstand me, I just wished you could also communicate or interact with others (in the internet), you seem trapped in your own mind and I know how is it being there. I don't really know your situation to be able to give the slightest useful advice, though I know expectations can kill. If I had any expectations to start with I would be already dead for sure. I'm almost dead even without them.
>> No. 26950 [Edit]
As someone who's in what feels like a similar situation, I think I can understand where you're coming from and what you're feeling at the moment. Sometimes it seems like each day is worse than the last, like there's no hope for improvement ect ect. But.. during the brief times I'm able to think clearly (which is very hard in this emotional storm of a god awful life I live) I do think to myself that maybe there's only a lack of hope and possibility for a half way decent future, because I've stubbornly refuse to change the course of life I'm on. I often get the urge to kill myself, because there doesn't appear to be any reason not to with the way things are now, but in those windows of clarity I think, if I'm going to kill myself anyway, maybe it wouldn't hurt to at least 'try' something else. I think you could too anon. Think of it this way; if you're going to die anyway, then what's the worst than can happen if you do something which puts your life in danger? Worst case scenario, you reach the same end result. Best case or even average outcome would result in a change to your life for the better. Seems a bit like common sense to at least try, but I can totally 100% understand not being able to see things that way when your vision is clouded by negative emotions. It might help a lot of try and take a bit of a vacation/break from your normal life for a few days, so something completely different that would clear your mind, and think things over. The reality is we all have options and different paths we can choose to take, and sure they might not be perfect, but if the path you're on is a dead end road, then what's the harm in changing directions?

I've been enjoying the writings of Emil Cioran, with his kind of pessimism breeds optimism. It's nothing new to say that the suffering that comes with living is natural, but his writing style makes it very entertaining with some very quotable ideas. I also want to get around to Schopenhauer when I can.
>> No. 26880 [Edit]
I tried reading Plato but it was literally gay so I stopped. I read Nietzsche and was really not impressed by it, it was all fairly simple or wrong, there was a lot of ego stroking involved in it. Marcus Aurelius was fairly obvious as well, I don't think there was much wrong about it but it was mostly common sense.

What if people like you and I aren't the problem, but rather a modern culture that prioritizes short term gains from relationships with people over long term life lasting relationships
>> No. 26931 [Edit]
That's certainty a factor. Long gone are the times most people in the west would make childhood friends they stick with for the rest of their lives.
Making friends as a kid is the easiest by far.

At the same time, normal people have adjusted enough to have something. That's what's normal. You could argue it's not worth having though.

Even outside this fact, society has always had a particular notion of "acceptable" social interaction, and anyone falling outside that is considered an outcast. Even something as simple as not being able to make eye contact is enough to basically exclude you from interactions.

Do pets help you cope with loneliness?

I'm thinking of getting a gecko because I always thought they're super cute, and after watching a couple YouTube videos I got the impression that leopard geckos and crested geckos in particular will happily interact with humans.

But I'm a bit worried that I might neglect him and he'll end up dying or having a shitty quality of life, or that taking care of him will become such a drudgery that it'll end up being stressful for me.
They live up to 20 years, so this isn't a decision I'm making lightly.

I hate to be the downer here but I feel like it might help you in the long run.
I had a cat forced on me (parent got it. got tired of it) for 16 years and it's such a mixed bag experience for me. I'm glad I helped that cat have a decent life but I regret the attachment and all the shit I went through. The stress of taking care of an animal, the constant battle to keep the place clean, the money spent. Pets are a never ending source of problems, specially when they get old. If you truly care about them you'll suffer a lot, so don't get a pet. If you don't truly care about them, then don't get a pet.

The worst part of having a pet is that they are a life form. They require constant care and attention. They also get sick and die. I got lucky in that regard because my cat got sick just a couple of times in 16 years but those last two years when she had kidney problems costed me a small fortune. Then of course I had to pay for 16 years of cat litter, pet food and so forth so on. A gecko is not a cat but you'll be facing similar stuff.

Start out with a potted plant. Get a bonsai or two or something and take care of that for 2 or 3 years, see how it goes. Then if your plants are alive and well after that, keep taking care of them and don't get a pet. If they die or you get tired of it, then don't get a pet.

Now, this guy >>26876 is doing the right thing because he had a pet forced upon him, and handling that situation with compassion is the right thing to do. But that's not your case, OP, you want to purchase a bunch of problems. And I tell you what, >>26876 doesn't saw the whole thing through yet. He didn't mention medicine or vets so I'm assuming he didn't went to the worst part of having a pet yet. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Sure there are nice moments in there but when it's all said and done I advise against getting one.
>> No. 26878 [Edit]
I can barely handle taking care of myself, I don't think I could take care of a pet (take care as in develop the emotional bonds needed for things like dogs/etc.)
>> No. 26879 [Edit]
A cat is fine too I guess?
>> No. 26932 [Edit]
Apparently patients that got a pet while in hospital recovered faster so it might help with loneliness.

As other anons described be absolutely sure you can and will take care if you get an animal. Also look into adopting one from a shelter.

i lived in a very abusive foster home between the ages 3 and 6. the foster mother there would berate, humiliate, and even threaten me every chance she got. she'd give me scalding water baths and starve me. whenever i asked a question like any curious child she wouldn't answer it, but instead let me know just how stupid my question was. everything i said was met with a biting comment. it broke down my spirit and to this day i still can't handle conflicts or the slightest amount of stress. i'm extremely self-conscious around people and deathly afraid of saying something stupid. so i usually don't speak at all. thanks to that people tend to think i'm mentally challenged and avoid me.

That view tends to sell non-human animals short. Crows, dolphins and chimps are among those smart enough to have what I'd call intellect, but that intellect doesn't conflict with their base instincts. Instead their intellect aids them in pursuing what they instinctual desire. Humans seem more dysfunctional to me. Why does one have to "rule" over the other?

Even if they don't articulate it quite like that I would say that most people would take that seriously. People generally want the people in control to be intellectual and to actually know what they are doing rather than be corrupt and only there to fill their wants.

Bob: Doug, recently you made some interesting comments. I was wondering if you could expand on them a bit, in private...

Doug: Sure, Bob. What comments?

B: You were talking about alien contact. You said if aliens were to contact us, they might try online before revealing themselves in person. Why do you think so?

D: Well, I have a number of reasons. Before that, you have to assume there really are aliens, they're aware of our existence, they have the means to contact us relatively soon, and they're interested in doing so. You could argue against all of these assumptions, but since you’re asking, I'm guessing you’re open-minded enough to accept them for the sake of argument...

B: Sure. Go on...

D: We've already discussed various means of contact that *may* be occurring already. UFO sightings for instance, which sometimes have multiple witnesses. There's also abductions.

All of these are easy to deny though. Authority figures can easily discredit reports of contact. It seems no one can provide hard physical evidence, and it’s easy to come up with other explanations most people will readily accept: weather balloons, secret military projects, mental illness, etc. Unless you've experienced it yourself, you can't say for sure contact has been made.

I talk to my waifu, cuddle with her, buy/set up/pose figures of her, look at pictures of her, and sometimes talk about her or post pictures of her online.

I started watching a show with her (cuddling with her daki while I watch), and I was thinking of taking a small figure of her out into nature sometime so we can enjoy it together.

Occasionally I find a new show, movie, or game that I can enjoy, or I can enjoy re-watching a show or movie I haven't watched in a long time.

Occasionally I play a musical instrument but I don't practice seriously because it starts to hurt after awhile. So it's like I'm roleplaying being a musician by fiddling around.

And of course mindless web browsing and occasional posting.

I killed a roach and left it's body with its spilled viscera to rot because I am too disgusted to clean it up. I know that it's unhygienic and will attract other bugs to it but I just can't be bothered. Forcing yourself to do something you hate requires willpower, and mine has been sucked dry by depression and other negative emotions. Now I understand how some of those hikkikomori and mentally ill people can end up with ridiculously filthy houses. You just can't be bothered to clean one thing, then another, then the bugs help themselves, and before you know it you're living in a dump. This is applicable to any other problems in life too. I like to think of myself as being better off among the "losers" in imageboards but it's not unlikely that I am heading in their direction. I have never been so grateful that humans have the ability to commit suicide.

When someone says "if you hate your life so much, why don't you just kill yourself" I have a little analogy.
Imagine you had some condition that caused you pain for every metre you were above sea level. Life is like living in a valley at 1,000m, surrounded all around by mountains of Himalayan proportions. "Why don't you live by the sea?" Because climbing over the mountains would be too painful.

Do you have a sex doll, or have you thought about getting one?
Or maybe a non-sexual, but still life~sized doll?

Does cuddling with them or just having them around help dispel loneliness?
Is it more satisfying to have "sex" with the doll than just masturbating with your hands?

I always thought they're really creepy, but now there are some anime-inspired ones that basically look like oversized figurines.

The only thing holding me back from buying one right now is that I imagine it must be a lot of work to clean them.

Even the DHGate dolls are very expensive. You would need to save up, I know its an unrealistic ask but I wish you could try such an expensive thing before you buy it.
>> No. 26800 [Edit]
Doll brothels are a thing in some places.
I've got a DSDoll. Much more satisfying than an onahole since it's the full package. It's very different if you can play with some tits while you fuck/masturbate, or hold a thin waist in your hand as you thrust. Plus, you can dress it up in sexy clothes.
The wigs can be bit hard to attach properly, using condoms simplifies cleanup vastly (or a detachable hole). Aside from that, cleanup isn't hard. Hang it up in the stand, warm water gets rid of any sweat you got on it, then dry it off with a cotton cloth, let it dry completely, then powder it with baby powder. It's even erotic to follow all the curves.
Another thing you have to pay attention to is that they're heavy. Not so much in real terms (about 30kg), but that weight is very awkwardly shaped, since humans don't come with handles. I recommend some grip strength training and daily calisthenics after you order it to be prepared for usage.
As for where to buy it, I'd stick to buying from professional importers in your home country, if possible. I didn't and the Chinese factory sent documents that weren't acceptable (the complimentary clothing was listed as a value of 0, which isn't permissible), so I had a hell of a time getting it through customs, and it ended up being searched, and I had to answer some awkward questions over the phone.

Something I should also mention, since anons have mentioned obsession: Do not get one that looks like your highschool crush or something like that. Bad idea. Very bad idea.
2D waifu lookalikes might be fine, but sticking to a purely physical relationship with your doll is still safer, except constantly switching role-play scenarios. If you're giving her a personality, you're going down a dangerous path.

>Bad idea. Very bad idea.
>If you're giving her a personality, you're going down a dangerous path.
Why? What's going to happen? Will my head explode?
>> No. 26802 [Edit]
The "making her look like an erstwhile crush" thing is a bad idea because it'll get you obsessed with what-could-have-beens that are unrealistic because 3D=PD, and make you more depressed because your current life isn't what you imagine.
The latter part also goes for giving the doll a personality. It'll just remind you that you can't have your waifu, constantly. And that's assuming you don't just start associating the doll with your waifu, which is an invitation for full-on insanity.
