I don't fucking get people. I don't get how people can have friends, how people make them, or hold onto them. All around me people are garbage. I've tried, I mean really TRIED to be nice and friendly with people. I'd offer advice, do them favors, try to take interest in things they like... yet at the end of the day I have no friends. It fucking drives me insane talking to people sometimes. For one they never shut up about themselves and interrupt you every chance they get just to talk about themselves some more, they don't care about anyone else and it's nothing but MEMEMEMEMEEMEME to them, yet trying to be a good listener have never gotten me anywhere. They just use me, take advantage of me then toss me aside when I'm no longer useful. Then there's obnoxious habit they have of clearly ignoring half of what I say/ask when we talk or take hours to days to respond because of how low priority I am to them, often times only to return to blab on about a completely unrelated issue to what we were talking about. I'd always think to myself they have their reasons, or maybe I did/said something wrong. This is just so god damn fucking frustrating. Why the fuck is it so hard to just respond to people like a decent fucking human being?! If someone is bothering you then why not tell them to leave you alone if you don't like them?! god I can't stand people. I fucking hate humanity. I can't understand how these pieces of human filth are able to have 'friends'. How can anyone like them when they act this way? How do people fucking put up with this shit? what the fuck do I have to do to have a single fucking friend?! Clearly being nice to people, helping them whenever I can, always being there for them, or even bribing them with gifts doesn't fucking work. what am I doing wrong? WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!

I don't even know why I care. I'd try so hard to make people like me or to just get along with people whenever I'd have the chance, but in the end I just can't fucking stand them. Sometimes I'd get sad or even a bit jealous when I see people with friends or lovers. Part of me wants to experience these things as someone who has never really had any of that. Heck I find myself very grateful when people actually reach out and try to talk to me or when people show any kind of interest in me. Most of the time however I honestly find them annoying. It makes me feel like a massive hypocrite when I want to have friends, but more often than not the people who I talk with online end up being a nuisance. Maybe not right away, but in talking with people a lot of the times I'll slowly start to wish they'd leave me alone so I can get back to whatever it was I was doing. Most people are just tiresome to be around and I enjoy being alone, but it still feels like I'm missing out...

Even with the romance side of things, as a nearly 30 year old virgin it bothers me at times that I've never had the chance to get involved in a relationship. it boggles my mind how people treat each other so horribly but keep going back for more, where as I've had nothing but the best intentions and have gotten nothing. Thing is though, When I really (and I mean REALLY) stop to think about the idea of being in a relationship with someone it fills me with a bit of dread. Sexual intercourse doesn't seem bad when it's in the 2D form, but the 3D variant is just disgusting to me and is not something I want to see let alone take part in. I shiver at the thought of kissing someone, and I don't even much like physical contact with other people. I'm gonna die alone, and it's in my best interest, but it doesin't really feel that way sometimes.

Sexuality is inversely correlated with how nice you are. If you're trying hard to please people unconsciously think you're lower status and become sexually and socially repulsed. Are you suddenly not attracted to women because they mock you with contempt? That's what drives your attraction.

There's nothing more offputting than some sad, mentally unstable loser. Man or woman.
>> No. 22184 [Edit]
The people I meet rarely show contempt for me (as far as I know), It's usually indifference. I don't beg people to be my friend or try to use pity if that's what you're thinking. I'm also not dumb enough to make my problems known unless I'm talking to someone with the same problems, let alone act mentally unstable. In fact people repeatedly take interest in me and like me a lot at first, but gradually loose interest and drift away. You might think that they realize deep down I want to be left alone, but I don't believe this to be the case. It happens even with people I do enjoy talking with.

Why is it that neets/hikis who've sought help from the mental health industry have rarely expressed positive experiences from it? Seems like the only good reason a floor shitter would seek help is to build a case for bux.

>Because normie platitudes don't work for people that don't come with the normie chip pre-installed

As he says, people that had happy normal childhoods and normal relationships with people and learned how to deal with them are incompatible with people that had neither of those things. They can't understand how these "patients" deal with stuff and why they take life like they do.

How am I supposed to help anyone when I can't help myself?
>> No. 22174 [Edit]
Since you quoted me... What I meant was slightly different. There is a variation between people that goes beyond experiences and learning, something we are born with or without, which is what I refered to as "chip". That's why there are introverts and extroverts, people who are naturally reclusive and people who need others' attention all they long. I had a relatively normal childhood and I've been able to survive in a few relationships, yet my "wiring" never changed... Always remained a hermit of sorts, getting anxious over social situations, getting stressed when approached by people I don't trust and so on.

My reply was more meant to emphasize that psychologists and therapists tend to make the mistake of giving advice from the viewpoint of a normally wired person, without taking into account the variations in character and personalities that their patients have... resulting in the patients trying methods that will ultimately hurt then, both short-term and in the long run.

Please remember never to underestimate how circumstance affects people. Someone whose childhood and life others might envy, could secretly be ridden with an amount of misery (that when unveiled) others will definitely not want to go through in exchange for that very same stranger's life they wish for.

Being able to relate does not equate to being able to professionally help someone with psychological issues. There is a lot of training and knowledge behind therapy. Plus >>22173 is right too.

Is suicide the only way out?

I can't stop thinking about Lain. It's making me extremely depressed. I don't even wish she were real or that I were in her world. I just wish I could, experience her, for lack of a better word. Sort of like how she became omnipresent herself. It's tough to describe but all I can say definitively is that everything else feels inadequate in comparison.

You better believe it. I'm not fortunate enough to get NEETbux like some of the people here, so a 1/8 chance of death for a 7/8 chance of an easy way out of being a wagecuck is more than worth the risk to me. Even 500 grand would be enough to last the rest of my life on if planned frugally.

I have issues with social anxiety, panic, agoraphobia, and depression.

I told my parents about my problems. They told me to talk to staff at college. I talked to one of my professors. He told me to talk to a counselor. I talked to a counselor. They told me to talk to a therapist. I talked to a therapist. I don't really like them, and I've tried other therapists who weren't helpful. None of them seem helpful. The therapist told me to talk to people in random public places to try and make friends (as if someone with social anxiety will ever do that) and to talk to a psychologist. I talked to a psychologist and they told me to talk to people and also tried to get me to go back on medications, even though I've tried countless meds and none of them help and there are always negative side effects.

I feel so trapped and lost and alone. I've done everything most people would suggest doing. And everyone wants to pass me off to someone else, like a fucking game of hot potato. I don't know what to do.

I wish I had friends, but I don't know how to make friends.

I have a decent car. I'm in college going for an IT degree. I have money. I do occasional odd jobs so I have spending money for beer or weed or gas or food or whatever. I (surprisingly) have connections for weed. I'm a good listener. I'm very tolerant of other people's lifestyles and hobbies, even if they're completely different from my own. I can repair cars (at least simple stuff), electronics, and computers. I've built quite a few computers for various people and they're all very satisfied with them. I can make websites for people. I'm not the most amazing person ever, but I do have a couple redeemable qualities. Things that can be used as favors for people, so someone would get something out of being my friend. Wouldn't someone want to be a friend with someone like that?
But I have no friends. Not a single one. No one ever talks to me. The only people who used to hang out with me were people who used me for money, but they weren't my friends. I eventually cut off contact with them because I realized they saw me as a walking wallet rather than a friend. We were never friends.

People would probably tell me it's my fault for not initiating conversations

Surely whatever you wrote was less humiliating than this.

I agree with this so much. Maybe OP just needs to get to the point where they don't need/want friends either?

I only socialize anonymously now or in a setting on the internet where growing a friendship would never happen. Eventually you realize having friends is too much pressure if you already have issues you're working through, you're better off just talking with people casually and not putting that kind of pressure on yourself.

Meh, I decided to give it a try as an anonymous speaker, had a shitty experience. I waited for like 10 minutes to get a listener. Someone, probably a rather young girl, cut me off a couple of times without even bothering to check for her possible spelling mistakes.

I suppose I should have picked a listener from the list rather than getting a random one but I won't use this shit again. All I wanted was to speak up my mind but instead I jumped off pissed off...

>Just became a listener after passing a well layered but easy test.
Could any of you describe it?
>> No. 21987 [Edit]
Honestly, I find these types of sites to be counterproductive. As >>20512 mentioned, people do sign up as listeners for the explicit intent of trolling (or abusing, if you want to call it that) lonely or downtrodden individuals. And even the listeners that are "legitimate" are virtually all insufferable Ford Drivers that will try to veer the conversation towards them and their victimhood somehow.

That's it. Fuck it though, im not using it when the training encourages what is in my opinion useless babble
>I have so many problems, my family is falling apart, I have no money and my gf left me
>Sounds like you're stressed
No shit. If I do use it im not doing any of that. Not trying to be edgy but that's how I was treated and absolutely hated it, I can do basic introspection and I assume most others can. It's kind of pointless when they're trying to legally cover their ass as much as possible, can't even advice.

I think many of us will need more than words, therapy and even drugs to fix ourselves.

Thow my computer out the window in middle school. I somehow became hooked on gaming, then I stopped. Turns out people change in just 3 years. I have hard time making friends because of it.

Is there anyone else that is scared and gets anxiety thinking about death? Sometimes I get anxiety attacks from asking myself "what if I was born in a different time" and thinking about the future after I am dead and doubting if God exists and what would happen if something in my life didn't happen. This happens like 2 times a month and I can't stop thinking about it.
