Synchronicity can be a pretty interesting thing. I actually made a list a few years back cataloging them for a few months. I'm not exactly sure what to make of it. Sure, some are coincidences easily enough but some border on the uncanny.

Whenever my life is JUST about to get better in one way or another, I purposefully fuck it up at the last moment.

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?

Not everyone is a brainless uber-normie, there are some decent around. Though if someone is really bothering you, just give them a hint or let them know that you're unhappy and they'll fuck off.

I didn't realize that it's weird to go to a resturant alone. I suppose now I don't care that it's weird to go to a resturant alone.
>> No. 23588 [Edit]
Going to a fast food restaurant alone isn't abnormal, I see others do the same often. For a dine-in establishment it may be out of the ordinary, but as long as you're not bothered by standing out ever so slightly it should be fine. Heck, if there's a place you really want to go to to eat their food, invite some family member of yours given you are in contact with any.

> Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams (MILD):
> 1. Set an alarm for five hours after you go to bed.
> 2. When the alarm sounds, try to remember a dream from just before you woke up. If you can’t, just recall any dream you had recently.
> 3. Lie in a comfortable position with the lights off and repeat the phrase: ‘Next time I’m dreaming, I will remember I’m dreaming.’ Do this silently in your mind. You need to put real meaning into the words and focus on your intention to remember.
> 4. Every time you repeat the phrase at step 3, imagine yourself back in the dream you recalled at step 2, and visualise yourself remembering that you are dreaming.
> 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you either fall asleep or are sure that your intention to remember is set. This should be the last thing in your mind before falling asleep. If you find yourself repeatedly coming back to your intention to remember that you’re dreaming, that’s a good sign it’s firm in your mind.

I've never got this to work but there are many forums with people who swear by it.

>you can only experience enjoyment from sleeping while awake
Sleeping is enjoyable while asleep as well. If you have a pleasurable or enjoyable dream, that pleasure and/or enjoyment is experienced while dreaming, not while awake. What you experience while awake is a memory.
>>23555
It's all fun and games until you get stuck in a waking up loop. Unless you have already mastered resetting and controlling circadian rhythm and managing sleep cycles, I'd stay away from trying lucid dreaming.

How do you ease the pain, Tohno-chan?
15 posts and 1 image omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 23511 [Edit]
Programming and learning about computer science stuff. It's hard at first, but once you can get past a certain point, and you're able to make cool things, it's really enjoyable. It's not easy though.

It helps with painful emotions because it's very complicated and requires your full attention. Helps distract you from negative thoughts.

Debugging can make you feel worse though. When your code sort of does what it should, but with one or two problems, and you can't quite figure out what's wrong. But when you are able to successfully fix an issue, it feels really good.
>> No. 23516 [Edit]

Yeah, that's a good method. Dedicating yourself to something complicated and essentially endless. For the past 2 years I've been studying Japanese. It's very rewarding if you manage to keep at it.

For most "normal" people, they just use alcohol and TV and stuff themselves with "comfort food", and that's why the "normal" American family has degenerated since the 50s or so.

I can verify that this method works. I tried it with videogames, playing music and weightlifting.

Is this the NEET equivalent of a workaholic neglecting their personal life and "escaping" from their families and other obligations by jerking around at work?

I have a younger brother. We were inseparable, he used to follow me around incessantly and was very clingy until we were teens, then he gradually got his own life and we naturally grew apart. Nowadays he's some retarded pothead and I hate how he treat my parents like shit so I interact with him as little as I can. I think I hate him.

I have 7 siblings. I am not in contact with any of them. I deliberately cut off contact with them. They are all ultra-SJW and degenerate. They probably don't miss me though. I hate them and they probably hate me too.
>> No. 23559 [Edit]
I've got three, and they're way younger than me. Oldest sibling is on my mom's side. She grew up happier than I did thanks to mom going through most of her parenting mistakes with me. The other two are on my dad's side, and I've been so distant from him that I have no idea how they're doing. At least they still live with both their parents.

I don't have a waifu at the moment, but I do have a daughter. I'm waiting to have enough money so I can make a doll out of her. She has black hair and brown eyes. I brush her hair, cook food, and put on her pajamas when it's bedtime and take care of her. It makes me feel very nice and special knowing I have a sweet little girl to take care of after school that loves me. Does any one here do the same thing?

Would you date/love a 3D girl if she met your standards? (other than not being 3D)

If so, what would she be like? What would it take in a person for you to turn from 2D girls for them?

We're all lonely and want someone to be there for us, and someone to talk to and hold at night. Sometimes though it feel like 2D isn't enough, you can't touch your waifu unless you have a daki, and even then, she doesn't move, or talk to you, and she can't hold you in her arms after a bad day and tell you it's all going to be alright. Even if you make a tulpa like /jp/ likes to talk about she still only exists in an immaterial form. You can't go shopping with her and buy her cute clothes.

I don't know man, I'm not saying 3D girls are better, but having someone who can hug back and have an actual conversation that doesn't consist of dialogue choices, loading screens and pre-generated and recorded text and speech seems nice. A warm person next to you, with a heartbeat you can feel and hear, and lips you can actually kiss...it sounds nice.

Well, I guess for my case I'm in good enough physical shape, due to genetics and exercise, but I don't make much and I'm also quiet/weird like a lot of people.

From around mid-2011 to mid-2016 or five years I didn't have any crushes on real girls, I was that much of a weeb. Even now I'm not really attracted to most conventionally beautiful women I guess.
>> No. 23454 [Edit]
No. Realistically, no. I can't trust anyone. Even if she's perfect and loyal and everything one can dream for, I will ruin it because I'm mentally insecure.

Me again. The reality of this impossibly seems to weighing heavier on me all the time as I get older. In retrospect a doll or something of that nature may suit many of my needs, but it doesn't change the fact at the end of the day I'll be alone till the day I die. Never knowing love, never knowing friendship. The thing that really gets to me though is seeing countless people out there, horrible people, nasty pieces of work, people who get great things out of life and take them for granted. Starving is bad enough without watching someone throw out their food because they're full or stupid shit.

Sorry to hear that anonymous. I'm in a similar situation. After scheduling time for uni courses, study, work, and sleep, I've got about 1 hour left per day to travel between home, work, and school, and eat, shower, etc. Yet my family still makes fun of me for not working hard enough, it's like they want to see me break down and fail miserably.

I tried being happy. I finally went to Japan after many years of wanting to go, had the best time of my life, and when I come back, everything fell apart. Now I'm barely hanging on and suicide really feels like the only option I have. Why did I try to be happy?

Fair? No. Her issues come from social anxiety, not rejection of society nor desire to be alone. She's 100% not a hikikomori. Just read the manga, man.

Where did I write that a hikikomori can't suffer from social anxiety? It seems like you're forcing that idea on to me so you can justify picturing Tomoko as a hikikomori when she's 100% assuredly not. Someone having social anxiety doesn't make them a hikikomori. Also, I assume you're a new user, in which case I'll inform you that you can't misuse the quoting function in this board (>>/r/7), probably to avoid the kind of attitude like the one in your post. I advise you to refrain in the future unless you're hoping to get banned.

If anything, that has made things worse for me.
It has always been easy to get thoughts across, but the problem is my grammar always seems unnatural, to the point I have plenty of embarrassing memories of others asking me if I'm a Slav based on the structures I make use of. On the rare occasions I don't screw up with grammar and syntax, I spend much more time writing a comment than someone else normally would, just to make sure everything is in place and order (that would be the case with this post).
I'm not into making excuses for being dumb, but I suppose that's because most people on the internet aren't English speakers themselves, which means "learning" a language from people who can't speak it very well in the first place. And many of the native speakers make mistakes too which, deliberate or not, will be mimicked by non-speakers.
>> No. 23009 [Edit]
>most people on the internet aren't English speakers themselves
I seriously doubt this. A lot of them might have English as a second language but have been learning English from a young age.
Its selection bias. As someone from a backwater English speaking country I assume everyone online is American unless they use British colloquialisms.
>> No. 23429 [Edit]
Mine too, and I was born/raised in the US. Not sure if it's my mental issues or the lack of human interaction but I tend to slur my words, mix them up, or trip over my sentences and say stupid nonsensical things while generally sounding like a retard.
my spelling meanwhile is horrid and hasn't improved much as I've gotten older.

I can read nearly everything.
I can understand most things I listen to (not every accent).
I take to much time to write shit and I make a lot of mistakes that lead into me taking more time to write something.
And I'm awful at speaking English. I need to much time to find the right words and I do accidentally use German words all the time.
So basically:
reading/listening 7-8/10
writing 5/10
speaking 3/10

Maybe because I read English stuff all day and also listening to English content but I rarely write my self and I don't talk at all.
I do have a lot of basic every day words I don't know in English like basic plant or animal names because I never use them anywhere.

Still better than 99% of all Japanese.

I hope one day my Japanese will be nearly as good as my English.

What was the happiest moment of your life, TC?
16 posts and 1 image omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 23420 [Edit]
There never was a happiest moment, but rather a recollection I have of happy moments.
When I was a teen, I got a failing grade in High school, as I was walking down the road to my home to report to my parents, I had my head held up high as I knew I was a capable young man, so no matter what the outcome I get didn't matter, and I had a smile. This was one of those fleeting moments of hapiness
I had some more, but this one just resurfaced today and I was extremely happy, thinking if I ever will get back to those dreamlike days.

I have become stronger, more knowledgeable and capable in the past 5 years since, but I have also become more robot like. I am tough as nails now, but I don't really want to become that way any more because I loved being able to feel things and living my life according to emotions.

Whatever happens, I will stay myself, but I hope, I do it with spirit and love again.

Talking to a friend.
>> No. 23426 [Edit]
The happiest time of my life is when I read the visual novel Dal Segno. I got very deeply infatuated with Hazuki, and even now I still remember the warmth and happiness I felt.
>> No. 23428 [Edit]
Close to the end of high school, I made my first actual friends. On one hand it was nice to be treated like a human being for once, and the more time I spent with them the better things became. But with graduation around the corner, I knew our friendships wouldn't last long. That, and when it ended I started to feel empty. It left me wishing that I could have met these people much earlier and been friends with them for longer. Probably would have avoided a lot of depression and bullying that way. Probably would have grown into a healthy adult.
