You know what sucks about being a loner? Not having people to go to restaurants with. There is so much good food I would eat if only I had people to eat with. Going to a restaurant alone is weird. I could never do that.

I mean, every now and then I get food with people. But not anywhere near as much as I’d like.

Can you think of anything else you need a group for?

There are a lot of people that go to restaurants alone. Also many people go to the movies alone. You just believe it's a social activity because of popular culture and what normalfags think about those activities.

no, some restaurants actually refuse to serve singles because they have limited seating and one person by themselves would still take up a booth, meaning fewer customers

That's fairly rare though, since many places have a bar they can sit single or excess customers at.
>> No. 23987 [Edit]

yeah I've never come across that myself. It makes sense on paper, but I can't picture a business doing well if they're turning away paying customers. That sort of treatment is going to alienate and piss off customers who might not want to return.

Not only do they have bars, but if the place is really crowded they might just have single people share. This was my experience when I went to have breakfast at a -packed- Denny's in LA. They put me on the waiting list and when my name came up they asked me if I was okay with sharing a table. Had I said no 'maybe' they would have turned me away, but if that were to happen it would have been on me.

I told my therapist about my life situation and then he started to cry. I remained calm, but it was really awkward and embarrassing. Like, even someone who deals with people who have problems for a living was shocked at how shitty my life is.

I wonder if it was genuine or if he faked it because therapists think crying shows empathy and an emotional connection with their patient. I think it's just that he is inexperienced or something. But it's weird and I wish he didn't do it.

not only are they winging it, but if you point out that they don't know what they're doing they will become outraged and indignant.
if someone who is legitimately trained and competent starts working near them the faker will sabotage the skilled person because they don't want to be compared unfavorably.
and don't forget that people who are living a lie successfully are demonstrably good at deviousness, they will outwit you most of the time because they're practiced and you won't see the lie.

The pro wrestler Ric Flair tells the story that he started seeing a therapist at the height I'd his popularity over confidence issues, and the therapist ebsed up crying. Maybe after hearing about his alcohol addiction.

Ric Flair was famous for his matches against the Von Erich family.

The Von Erich family is a professional wrestling family. Its actual surname is "Adkisson", but every member who has been in the wrestling business has used the ring name "Von Erich", after the family patriarch, Jack (Fritz Von Erich) Adkisson.

When Fritz died of cancer in his Denton County home at 68, five of his six sons had preceded him. His firstborn, Jack Jr., was shocked and drowned in a puddle at the age of six in 1959, outside his Niagara Falls home. In 1984, David Von Erich died in a Tokyo hotel from enteritis. Mike, Chris, and Kerry died of suicide; Mike took an overdose of Placidyl near Lewisville Lake in 1987, Chris shot himself in the head with a 9mm handgun in 1991 and Kerry shot himself in the chest in the family yard in 1993. Kevin Von Erich is the last surviving son.

I took one of the most stupid decisions in my life.

I decided to go on an Erasmus+ in Georgia and, 7 days in, I want to home. But I can't. I could, I could just go to the airport. But I couldn't handle my parents, even if they said nothing. I've failed enough times already that I feel like a failure.

And the tragedy is that there is not even nothing wrong. From an objective point of view, everything has been good. There were a couple of issues, like losing my sim card (I had made another one to call/use internet, and put the old one in the wallet), but nothing major. People are nice, what I am doing is good. The only objective form of stress is because of the documents for the erasmus, but they don't really matter because at worst it would simply be a personal traineeship.

And yet I feel terrible. I am thinking about killing myself. I don't know what's wrong with me. Is it because I depend on other people so I feel like I am imposing on them but at the same we are not close enough for me to feel ok with that? maybe it's because I left my house, I have lived there for 10 years now on my own and now I have been to 2 hotels in 7 days and the reptile brain just wants to go back to his nest. Another possibility is that I have yet to find a new routine. People are nice here, but there seems to be a lack of organization, maybe we leave the 27th, maybe the 29th, maybe the 26th.
I sleep so much. I go to be at 10-11 pm to wake at 7.30, I am used to 6 hours of sleep, not this. It reminds me of when I went to my grandparents house because he was a physic professor and he wanted to help me with my studies, I was sleeping 10 hours per night.
I am afraid of leaving the hotel. Or, more than afraid, it's laziness. I haven't ate dinner 3 or 4 times already because I was simply too lazy and scared to leave the hotel room.

Maybe, when I will go to the place I am supposed to work in for the next 3 months I will be better. Get a place for a longer time, knowing what to do everyday, the days go by and I will see my return getting closer. It's just three months after all. Once I start working for real, I won't have time to think. I think that's the issue. I am not working enough. I have too much time to think. I could walk through the town, but I

once you go through something like that you'll feel compelled to make use of what you learned because of all the time and effort you invested in completing the studies and training. inevitably "making use of what you learned" will consist of slaving away making profits for some narcissist with an inherited business or someone else who got to their position of authority through nepotism or some other sleazy dishonest means. a lot of that hard work, valuable skills and effort they try to make you learn in school isn't intended for your own benefit, so don't feel like you're making a mistake if you don't follow the normie drone path to what they define as a successful life. their definition is self serving, nobody wants to admit that they've been tricked into slavery, makes them feel foolish and lose face. if it turns out that you want to be a hermit and live in a cave and make cave drawnings that nobody else will ever look at and you go ahead and do that and enjoy it then you've had a successful life. if you were born 20,000 years ago as a semicivilized halfmonkey and never left the valley you were born in an just sat in a tree and at fresh fruit and masturbated all day until you were eaten by a lion and no anthologist ever dug up your skeleton then you would have had a successful life. if you suffer miserably trying to make other people happy and satisfy their desires and expectations they will just continue to take advantage of you and you will be left with regrets and feel like a chump. furthermore the worst of the other people will seek you out for manipulation with leech-like coldness and instinct.

Post and discuss medical issues here. It helps to talk about them.

My lower left lung has been hurting, it feels like it's been stabbed. And I just coughed and tasted blood. Didn't see any blood when I went to the mirror and made myself cough again, just tasted it.
I'm scared. I'm poor. The doctors are going to let me die if it's cancer, I can't afford it. I did used to smoke but it was only for a year or two... I've been having trouble breathing but it might just be allergies. I will try to be optimistic.

I also went two years without brushing my teeth and my gums are so full of bacteria it's actually making me sick now. I'm sick constantly because of my own mouth, swallowing bacteria is irritating my throat and giving me a fever, and will be till I pay up $7,000 to unfuck my mouth. No root canals yet, and only two teeth have to be pulled, so that's a positive I guess. I got good teeth genetics from my folks. The dentist said average people would have had lots of teeth fall out by now.

Best advice I can give anyone is take Vitamin D supplements if you aren't in the sunlight at least 30 minutes a day. It helped me a lot.

Watch out for this type of person. The whiner, malcontent, sickly type, etc. Almost all of them are textbook narcissists, constantly on the make looking to guilt trip others into doing shit for them. There is no winning with these people, no "one good turn deserves another" or anything like that. They will always be on the receiving end of favors and they never give up, you can never relax around them without suffering the consequences because of their massive and unreasonable sense of entitlement.
Heed this warning, this kind of person is easy to sniff out once you're aware of what to look out for and if you aren't on the lookout they'll get you like some kind of predatory leech because their persistence.

When hanging out with people, I try to talk, but most people just give rapid-fire responses to one another. Whenever I try to say anything, the conversation has already moved on, or nobody gave me enough time to say something. Sometimes, people even talk over me.

Yeah, I'm so quiet. Maybe if you gave me the opportunity to talk, you'd hear what I have to say!

It especially sucks when you're with 2 other people. At first, they try to include you in the conversation (even though they do the things I mentioned before). But eventually, they just give up on trying to talk to you, so you end up just being an observer to a conversation between two people.

Or sometimes people will put you on the spot and say "why are you so quiet?" What are you even supposed to say to that? What do they even expect you to say? That's like the one time people will stop talking and listen to you. But when you're put on the spot like that, it's hard to find something to say.

Anyone had any similar experiences?

No really. I very rarely meet people who only discuss boring stuff I'm not interested in. Maybe I'm interested in to many things.

I only noticed that people always change topics when you have something interesting to tell but I think that's a point of few thing, maybe I did often enough switch to topic to something I wanted to talk about.

That's the worst and it's almost never by people who actually understand what they're trying to baby you on either. It'd be a lot less annoying if the people who acted that way actually had a reason to, but sometimes people try it and even condescend with an incorrect understanding of said basic principle.

Everything always has to be dark and gritty and violent. It's fucking depressing.

This world is such a horrible fucked up unfair miserable place filled with pain and suffering and injustice everywhere. While you're reading this a dozen people are probably being raped and murdered, someone's watching a family member die, someone's dog might have been run over, someone just got sold into slavery, who knows. There's so much lying, cheating, stealing, and corruption everywhere on this little green and blue rock of ours. We're on this earth for such a short period of time, and during that time we struggle to make the best of what we've got. This while uncaring people try to make life worse for us each step of the way. There's nothing we can do about this though. This is just how things are and will always be.
I want to try and not think about it, to take my mind off that stuff and relax without thinking about war and crime and murder for a minute. Seems like the logical thing to do. Yet as horrible as this world is, most people can't seem to get enough of it. From news covering all the most recent gruesome crimes in the area, to tv glorifying more crime and violence. The most popular movies making a spectacle of violence while games let people act it out. Sure sometimes these things might have interesting stories to them, stories of perseverance, good vs evil, or that can pull some emotion out of you. They have their artist merits to an extent in some cases, but that's all people seem to like, Violence, and lots of it. When it comes to anime, the small amount of CGDCT fans out out there for instance is nothing compared to all the massive amount of people who refuse to watch anime that isn't filled with tons of action and fighting like your dragonballs or what have you. If there's no action, people get bored of it or in the case of things that are cute/moe can get angry and hateful even.

Whenever something cute and wholesome gets popular, there's likely a big twist behind it. Be it cute cartoon animals mutilating each other, muppet style youtube vids being philological horror, magical girl anime that turn out to be dark and violent, dating sims that are gruesome horror games in disguise, slice of life anime that turn out to be zombie filled survival horror.

It's not violence in particular, but rather a general lack of satisfying problem solving. Working away at the same task like a robot everyday isn't exactly mentally stimulating. I find the most pleasure in dealing with mathematical or scientific problems, violence is certainly one thing that can entertain though. I just feel that as a whole humans like to have puzzles to solve, and without that conflict we are bored.

How can you be a hikikomori without income? I hear that most don't have jobs so it confuses me. Do you guys just live with your folks or what? I try to be a hikikomori but I still have school and my sister is taking up our room most of the time.. So I don't really understand some of it, I guess.

Despite you didn't actually state it, but since it seems to be a trend here to misappropriate the term... Moriko Morioka is not a hikikomori, but rather a NEET (elito neeto, as she says it). While she has obvious social anxiety due to her seclusion, she doesn't have that much issue with going outside and even enjoys engaging in social interactions in crowded places as shown repeatedly.

That aside, working from home as a hikikomori is very hard because of how few of these types of jobs are. Been looking for such opportunities for years.

Good point, very true. I just meant similar in that it's purposefully saving up to drop out of society. This is the route I took.
You are also right about working from home being very hard. I think a good idea is to diversify your income sources as much as possible. I don't personally do it but I hear people can do pretty well from cryptocurrency trading, so that might be worth looking into. You can also resell stuff, there's a guide somewhere about buying things from chinese sites and selling them on ebay for profit, without it ever going to your house. If you have specialist knowledge or skills you could probably turn that into money. Another option is creative stuff, if you build a little fanbase you can set up a patreon or ko-fi and make a little extra there. This could mean music, art, fanart, writing, blogging, reviewing, youtube, streaming etc. If you work hard it's possible even though it takes time and work, I make a little that way. Finally there's things like mturk which are essentially slave wages for a westerner but if you live in the 3rd world that much money can make a difference.

What I mean by this is, say you go to a few irc channels/chat rooms or even places like discard or what have you. You get there, and either you are treated like the odd one for being there, or the place is dead or hardly any activity with plenty of people lurking there anyway. I see this shit everywhere, and it pisses me off to no end. What's the point of lurking in a channel and staying there if you only check back every five years to say a few words and fuck off again for another? It's just so lame, I find a place where people are supposed to be talking about something I am interested in as well, so I join and am usually greeted by scarce talk even if I try to start conversation in a normal way. Why are so many places dead pieces of boring shit? Why are so many people such annoyances to try talking with?

It's intrinsic in such platform.
>it pisses me off to no end. What's the point of lurking in a channel and staying there
If you are connected through a desktop client, what difference does it make if you have an extra channel open? It's not like people open IRC just to lurk. That aside, people don't owe you their attention. You're not entitled to being interacted with because you joined a chat room, even if it makes no sense to you.
>Why are so many places dead pieces of boring shit?
A lot of IRC channels, forum communities, etc. are mostly vestiges from years ago, where people who still join or lurk do so out of routine, nostalgia, occasional reminiscence or even off-chance of encountering someone they interacted with in the past. Therefore, the degree of activity is vastly reduced from what it used to be. For discord the issue is different; since as a platform is designed to maximize circlejerking and prioritize identities over topics, people will naturally gravitate to communities that allow them to have their identities grow, or exploit them for attention, making the average lifespan of a channel incredibly short in comparison to IRC, so you're bound to find dozens if not hundred+ channels related to anime that are now either deserted or transformed into a clique's hideout.

I see your point here, and now I am realizing that my post came off a bit differently than I intended, which is my fault. No point is good unless it is explained properly. It isn't very often that I visit random channels that I've never been to. I sometimes see one mentioned somewhere and decide to check it out. What I am annoyed by, that I didn't explain very well, is the common trend I see of egotistical bs. As in, people not responding to a simple question or treating one in an otherwise unfriendly manner on purpose. I am taking those things I described and viewing them as that. I understand that there are older communities where people don't talk so much anymore or lurk out of habit or what have you, like you said, but it seems to me that isn't the case with every channel. I don't expect to get social interaction every time I go some place and order people to talk to me or else I flip out and go crazy, it's that it is rare for anyone to even care. For example, if someone joins a channel and asks a simple question related to the community or topic around it, any reasonable person would expect that sooner or later, even after a few days someone would see that and bother to respond (so long as the person who asked is still there and the question isn't stupid). Of course there are places where people legitimately don't look and don't check, for the reasons you mentioned which really I hadn't thought much about, but make some sense. The origin of this is, there are some things I might find one small community for in form of an irc channel, and when I go there and see no active members it seems as if nobody cared about it in the first place. You'd think at least one other person would. As for discord, I realized a while back the platform was crap in more ways than one (namely the identity part as you said, more egotistical bs) and it should be treated that way as anyone reasonable wouldn't be using it as their platform of choice in
