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

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...

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.

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.

People usally call me '30s kid.
On the bright side, I usally get along with chinks, for some reason.

How does that work exactly? Aren't you supposed to get the surname of your father? Your parents can't choose a surname for their child or maybe you meant something different.

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.

I'm just living my life in the stand-by/automated mode. I sleep a few hours and spend the rest of the day browsing imageboards/watching anime. Doing so for four years now I think has rotted my brain.

I can't read anything longer than one paragraph or do basic math. I'm also very slow to understand basic things, it is very sad.

>> No. 21828 [Edit]
My biggest flaw is no doubt my complete, utter lack of ambition. I never had a dream or drive to do or become anything, even as a child. Absolutely nothing motivates me.

I'm also highly antisocial, have very little stress tolerance, etc... much of the usual hikikomori traits. But at the end of the day, none of it really matters when you don't have the motivation to act on anything.

>>21823
I would consider that a good thing, not a flaw. Don't buy into that "tis better to have loved and lost" bullshit.
>> No. 21839 [Edit]
I have too many flaws to pick just a single one. The only thing that I could really say that would sum it all is that I exist. That would be the only thing that could capture all of my flaws into a single flaw.

it seems a lot of people here have posted about friends, old friends or even relationships, a very different demogrpahic than myself

it just seems kind of confusing why people like that would browse these websites, i learned relatively quickly that NEET websites generally are full of NEETs regardless of why they are but websites like this id have expected to have a more specific audience

I have a couple of friends. One is pretty much like me and I'm his only friend, we've been close-ish for a long time. Unfortunately I mostly just hang out with him for fun, he would never be able to relate to most of my life experiences. The other is charismatic and has a ton of friends. I just get together with him to drink since nobody else will drink with me. Pretty sure he's my friend out of pity. Overall, I can't say I can really relate to either or them to me.
>> No. 21808 [Edit]
Ive never had an actual friend, acquaintances maybe, like people youd sometimes go with to the cafeteria and generally choose to work with in teamwork asignements but as soon as the course is over I walk away. Im as surprised as you, OP, ive learned that the vast majority of people posting on chans nowadays are fairly normal people. Thinking about it it kinda makes sense, I mean consider the low quality of posting pretty much everywhere, its all either about relationships be it friends or gf, or lack thereof (I think in reality most people are pretending in order to better fit in with the self imposed loner loser stereotype as you can now tell) and interest/hobbies boards are most often full of mediocre posters save obscure and slow places. A true loner either by choice or forced would eventually give up and pursue his other interests, a truly knowledgeable person about any subject wouldn't really care enough about people to blog about it all day with random strangers whether he has a million friends or none. This leaves us with the actual normal people, those not knowleadgeable enough to make worthy contributions to the community and normal enough to have a handful of real friends and relationships with exes all over the place (albeit with issues with said people, as it should be because nothing's perfect and life sucks dick for everyone) flooding the chans as its evident by the average posting content and quality. I say actual normal people because I believe the current consensus of what's normal is way too fucking misguided in my opinion. Normal isn't a dudebro fucking all the chicks who's friends with everyone, that's merely an hyperbole created by the collective (my guess is it's done as a way to better stablish what we should not or don't want to become), normal is a guy with a handful of friends and contacts on his phone, sometimes single sometimes not and with drama filling the voids.

There's also the notion that anonymous communication provides a medium for all sorts of people, normal or not, to talk about things they'd never dare discuss in real life. Can't blame them for that. That's my simple reasoning for why normal people come to chans.

On a related note it amazes me how relatively functional anons families are, the way the media portrays places like this make

I agree with almost everything you said except
>its all either about relationships be it friends or gf, or lack thereof [...] A true loner either by choice or forced would eventually give up and pursue his other interests, a truly knowledgeable person about any subject wouldn't really care enough about people to blog about it all day with random strangers whether he has a million friends or none.
I don't think the relationship aspect is that big (at least on the 4chan boards I visit) that truly knowledgeable people fuck off since they don't necessarily need to be abnormal in the having friends regard (although those without have more time to acquire knowledge) and probably aren't bothered as much (loner maybe). You can always ignore that shit while contemplating the people who post it and still get nice discussions or the information you wanted.
The loner also may still keep posting because it's the easiest way to get immediate responses (the forced one probably more than the other), his other interests can't satisfy his social needs and places like this one probably are too slow to comply when the loner feels the need to communicate (again more likely for the forced one).

>the interest doesn't imply an specific personality and that audience you're thinking of is much, much, much, muuuch smaller than you think it is
I still believe that this place here does imply a specific audience or at least being not normal at all and OP's expectations are justified and fulfilled in my opinion. Sure, we have a few people here who have friends but I think those are in the minority as opposed to bigger chans where normal people are obviously the majority. This thread would back up that notion, if you want to believe the people who have posted so far.

>the way the media portrays places like this makes you think everyone here grew up to be the stereotypal murderer or rapist
You should know that the media is out for the views and clicks so portraying stuff in a complete exaggerated way is how they make money.

I've had absolutely no friends in the last 5 years. I don't even have a clue how someone like me would go out and make them. IRC humor/bantz doesn't appeal to me, i've lost interest in video games, and i'm not aware of any outdoors enthusiasts that aren't painfully extroverted. I'm stumped.
