Do you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.

Chat/community/personal ads are no longer allowed on the rest of the site, except maybe on /hell/.

Important Note: This doesn't mean that you can't talk about communities or chat groups. You could, for example, have a thread where you ask people about web communities they visit. You just can't open your thread with an advertisement.

One post per service please! Duplicate ads may be deleted. This especially includes discord links. To make a permanent discord link, click on instant invite, go to advanced settings, and change the expire time to never. Dead links suck. If your discord link expires, your post will be deleted and you may receive a short warning ban.

what's your experience with love? falling in it, falling out of it, one-sided or mutual.

currently i'm crushing very, very hard on what might be the most unreadable person on earth. i fell in love (i guess) when they asked the professor if they could step out of class and stumbled over whether to say "can i" or "may i". they went with the latter (and said please) and dropped their phone on the way out.

crushing this hard is like throwing my heart and brain in a blender and pulverizing them at the highest speed, but the blender short-circuits and the whole thing just combusts and explodes. i've always been a hopeless romantic, so this is a real weird mix of unsurprising and absolutely terrifying. i've never been so frustrated and so joyful in my life.

how about you, sushis?

It's me.

It's okay. Life is way harder than I thought it would be, too.

I still believe in love because of you. Love is real.

But when you closed off all communication it crushed me. I was devastated. I was in a very gross place the last time we talked and I feel like it's all my fault. If only I said something different I wouldn't have scared you away. If only I listened. I'm sorry.

I miss you so much.

I wish I knew what I was supposed to do to bring you back.

My happiness is only a stupid mask that I have to wear to make it through a work day. At all moments I just want to be beside you instead, doing or talking about anything. You loved me when I didn't love myself and it gives me strength every day. Thank you for this. I would like to return the favor now that I've found an inner strength of my own finally.

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


This is very odd but yeah you did say something really weird in front of everyone and my friends were pissed off at you, like, majorly pissed. At least it's in the past now and I don't hold it against you. I just couldn't say that in front of them. Anyway, forgot all that–Please get to me on my Discord: import_nltk#5963 I really miss talking to you all the time like we used too.

I've been in mutual love for 7+ years now. It's also me and my partner's first love and relationship. We married in our 4th year of knowing each other. Confident we're gonna spend our whole life together.

Also crushes are blind idealizations of people you don't really know well.


My experience is that it's a dumb distraction.

I wish I had a goal, a dream, something to strive towards. I want to change but I have no direction to put this energy so instead I'm just sinking deeper into my metaphorical swamp as I wallow in my uselessness.
If the wishgiver could throw in some discipline too that'd be great.


I wish I had a talent. I'm just not really good at anything, even though I have things that interest me.
I'm jealous of the talented.


I wish I could love myself and be confident without ever second guessing. I wish that I could follow my heart, as cheesy as it is, without that annoying voice of doubt instilled in me from childhood. I wishhh.


I wish I could go back in time to exactly three years ago


I wish for the world to not ruin my last chances at happiness.

(Didn't see a particular thread for this topic so making one) Anyone here married/have a family or otherwise older than the average imageboard user?

I hit 31 this year, have had a family for several years. Grew up and still enjoy chan culture yet somehow I've become trapped in suburban normie hell. It's a weird sort of loneliness. Anyone else know this feel?

if you're on an obscure, small imageboard like this, it's most likely are you suffer from some degree of chan/imageboard brain poisoning. Granted it's probably not severe enough that you can't communicate with anyone but it's still there.


OP here
Yeah and no
Yes in the sense that if I hadn't gotten married and started a family young I wouldn't have pushed myself academically and I wouldn't have the career I have now with its security and perks, and also yes in the sense that going through life experiences early like marriage and family raising gave me some old man self-confidence.

But no in the fact that responsiblity is a huge time suck, that I have little time for a social life beyond other young parents, and that I have less free time.

What's weird is that when you get older and start having responsibilities and experiences (and income) you realize all the fun things you can do - like who the fuck cares if I decide to pick up surfing now? Why the fuck not? But then you can't because you don't have time and you kick yourself for not being more adventurous when you were younger.


interesting concept, never thought of it that way before.

Do any of you enjoy going out/socializing?

Life was pretty much just online friends (gaming) through high school, did a 180 and partied a bunch in college, had a group I hung around with…and now for years it's just been my girlfriend and I. Didn't keep in touch with college people, never pursued friendships outside of work. I still talk to and see a couple of friends from childhood every so often but that's it. I don't even know if I mind very much, but it's something I ponder sometimes.

Yes. I'll usually default to extracting my entertainment out of the internet, but I'll gladly head out with the lads to catch a live concert and have more than a few beers.


File: 1577605241931.jpg (946.41 KB, 1920x1200, 1432703247142.jpg)

Holy crap, are you me? I did the exact same phase change from high school to college, and then I married my girlfriend while I was at it. I'm with you, OP. Sometimes I wonder if I should care more about socializing, but in the end I have other things to think about and do. I'm content without needing to go out. Those days are behind me (though they were good days).


File: 1581541921415.jpg (30.12 KB, 400x400, qnrebaly_400x400.jpg)

Almost never now. I have 2 or 3 people on discord and a penpal I've had for a year. I don't bother with people anymore, and being a solitary hikki/neet is preferable to dealing with people's bullshit. Not like most people interest me anyway. I might find someone for entertainment but other than that they're nothing more to me. And I know they feel the same way.


I dislike socializing both irl and online. There's only one person I can tolerate near me and we don't talk much either. We just do our own thing in the same living space for most of the time. It's the most desirable setting.


Sure, I like socializing. Most people I see these days I know from the internet though and most socializing I do is just sitting around and drinking beer. I didn't have many friends growing up and most of them became junkies or neets who I'm not that much in contact with anymore. Sometimes I wish I had some normal offline friends but I guess I'm pretty happy with my situation.

Do you live in a city?

Do you not live in a city?

How is that going for you?

Maybe you do live in a city, but you'd rather not?

everybody seems to be down on the fact that big cities feel lonely, but I love that! I want to live in a high apartment where I can just watch the world go by - all these people…I can just be myself because no-one cares.
That said I love nature and the outdoors, so maybe when I'm older I'll settle down somewhere idyllic and rural


I live 40-60 minutes outside of the city, but rarely have a reason to go there. I think I'd prefer living somewhere where like that where everything is so much closer together and I wouldn't need a car to do everything.
my hometown can be cozy, particularly in the autumn and spring. but I've grown weary of being in the same place for so long


I, aclually, love this aspect of city life. This and accessibility of stuff and people and work. But there's nothing else worthwhile.


I live in the suburbs outside the city. It's a 10-15 minute drive to the city. As a kid I only went downtown to visit my cousin or for some event the city was having (they had the science museum with a bunch of cool stuff, Chinese new years, and food truck events). The city is kind of a mess because it's getting a 'rich people' boom, or how ever you would say it. The city's major railway is still being built along with a hundred other random things. it's not really comfy, but sleek, modern, and hip. It's not bad, but the place is getting some of it's soul sucked out by modernization.


File: 1582340115558.jpg (3.21 MB, 3480x4640, IMG_20191104_173946.jpg)

I live in a big city but it's extremely spread out and not very 'urban' for most of it. I don't really like that, but even though the public transit isn't good because of that it's still livable (1 hr commute to my work about 10 miles away). I honestly don't like most of the city very much, because most of the living spaces have that suburban, exclusive, alien feel or I wouldn't fit in. Anywhere with character is super poor or totally unaffordable, and there's unofficial but real segregation. Most places that are 'nice' feel fake and corporate. But there are still some good old neighborhoods, nice libraries and stuff, and at least the areas i live are very international, and you can find any kind of thing or person somewhere.

I wouldn't mind living in a small city or town if I knew i had friends there, but I'd be scared to move out and hope it worked out socially - that's the most important factor for me. I'm not really interested in living either in the suburbs or way out in the country, though… I want to be able to walk to things.

Do you guys see yourself in the context of society and decide, ultimately, that you are the one to blame for your problems?
14 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Yes. My problems of a lack of intimacy, friendship, or whatever social needs exist out there, it's my fault. It's all in my head. Nobody can change my mind except for myself, and yet, I don't fix any of it. I perpetuate this never ending cycle of negativity because it has become so natural it's more comfortable to be depressed and mellowed out than not.


No. Unironically my biggest problem is caused by society and it's retarded laws that limit people unfairly.


Is this a tamper?

I blame myself. But am I still a product of the environments I grew up in. Go figure.


Yes! I got a used pump driven espresso machine and now I can have nice espresso every morning!^^
I just went and bought some new beans today. They are always best when fresh.

Have you ever looked at other people in your age group and thought to yourself, 'what's wrong with me?'
Oh how I wish to be a kid again.

Kinda but everyone feels inadequate because social media makes you falsely believe that everyone is operating at the highest capacity (when really no one finds it easy to get out of bed in the morning.) Also you can't win this zero sum game. Have a job? Well this guy makes more. Single? Well this guy is married. Successful career and happy family? This guy a century ago grew up poor and redefined the industry you work in and is better than you in every way possible. It's all bullshit, don't worry about it.

Do go out every now and again tho.


I never really relate to most people I meet in my everyday life, I just can't relate to them. I don't think this is a problem with me, or a problem with them though. I just don't get how their minds work, or what motivates them. But I usually manage to find one or two interesting people that I have good chemistry with, and we can have nice discussions and stuff. It's very nice to have these experiences, because it's so easy to feel so alone in the world when you've gone without them for a long time. I'm kind of worried about how difficult it will be to meet these sorts of people after I graduate college though. But I guess I have faith in the dignity of ordinary, everyday life, and it's not for me to judge others just because I can't relate to them.


I want to turn back time sure, but because I want to do everything and end up doing nothing.

I haven't met a person in my age group that was so much more better off than me to feel like that, closest case I know it wasn't because she was successful, she just had skills I would die to have and seemed to have everything truly settled.

I guess I remain optimist, a colleague got a terrific job offer and all that went through my head was "I could do what he did, maybe I can get a similar offer too"


I'm 19 and young. Other people my age seem to be having so much fun and are full of energy, and, here I am, tired of the struggle already. I feel as if my ambition has been pulled out of my body and buried underground, and I am left wandering around as an aging piece of flesh. I just wish I'd find something that I could live with a stronger feeling for, you know? So that I wouldn't waste these precious days of youth. So I wouldn't feel as if there were something wrong with me.

It's not going to get easier from now on and your brooding is (While understandable) is not going to get you anywhere, You will keep regurgitating the same bullshit over and over but time will just keep on marching as you stay in the same spot. There is nothing wrong with feeling like this but don't let it drag you into the bottomless pit of depression, The walls there are very slippery and there isn't going to be anyone to help you out of there.
The best way to get ambition is to become engaged in something, Same with passion. These things are earned and the best way to earn them is by action. Just do things and keep doing things, Anything is good. Shift focus from yourself into the world around you.
