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.

How many of you are lonely?

I get the impression that a lot of people now a days are lonely, with this pandemic only making it worse. Not only that, people have difficulty reaching out to others because they fear rejection. People that could be good friends will never be simply because they're too shy. I myself really only have one friend I talk to regularly. Besides that I'm alone with my thoughts most of the time.

I am lonely. Old friends are all quite far away; far away enough that seeing them involves planning in advance and buying train tickets, payments for which add up worryingly on my bank statement.

I moved to this semi-rural town after university and…I have no clue how to make friends here. How do I even get started when it feels like there is almost no one my age? I think that most people here have moved to raise a family, so my choice is between people approaching middle age and their young kids.

There is one glimmer of hope though. On my street, there's a parked car with a Burzum sticker on the rear windscreen. I made my mind up months ago to talk to the owner whenever I saw him. But I didn't see him. The car was either parked, motionless and sushi rollymous, or it was absent.

A week ago, on a shimmering, hot day, I caught sight of a young, shirtless man parking it up on the street and climbing out. I struck up a conversation and we chatted for a minute or two about Varg and black metal. He was bemused, but faintly impressed that I had heard of Burzum: "You're the first person who's recognised that sticker."

I felt it was too much in a first introduction to ask to be friends in any meaningful way, so we left it at that. But I've taken a chance - the desire for just one friend out here has pushed me to it - by leaving a note on his windscreen, asking if he wants to come over and watch Until The Light Takes Us with me. We'll see if he texts the number I left, or if my ink is washed away in the rain…

Yes and no. I haven’t had any friends in about 3 or 4 years. I recently got a job and have a couple people at work that I talk to, either about work, the company, or personal interests, side projects, weekend plans and things like that. It’s not much, and the main guys I talk to are like 30-40 years older than me, but having some kind of daily interaction beats being a NEET and sitting at home all day and spending all my time on the internet. So I guess I have one or two co-worker friends now.

I think I’ll try making some friends online sometime, but I usually make excuses, procrastinate and avoid messaging anyone that posts their discord online. I think part of the problem is that there are so many people out there that it’s hard to choose people to talk to, they can disappear at any time, and it feels like some random person might not value your time and “friendship” because they can just find someone else where meeting someone in person you’re limited to people in your area and ones that you happen to meet somehow like through a group or something.

My other issue that it’s been so long since I’ve had friends I’m kind of worried I won’t know what to do if I did have one (I know that probably sounds pretty dumb.) I guess like how often should you message people, and things like that. Idk, I guess you just have to find people and keep talking to them and see what happens.

>>11950
That sounds great. Now you might as well keep trying to talk to the guy, you probably won’t meet anyone else in your area that has similar interests and he’s in the same position.

Once you’re out of school and on your own it seems a lot harder to meet anyone. Outside of a couple places like bars, and hobby clubs it feels like outside of work people just sit in their house all day (and tbh that’s kind of what I do most of the time)

 No.11972

I have no irl friends and have very few people who are familiar with me online. I'm vexed, it isn't safe meeting people and making new connections if it will potentially be tainted by certain ""people"". Possibilities remain just that

does anyone know any particularly comfy youtubers or podcasts?

i'm always looking for something comfy or interesting to listen to in my spare time, and listening to people talk helps me relax a lot.

one podcast i'm a fan of is the wisenheimers podcast which was two animators from newgrounds talking about stupid shit. it ended a while a go, but managed to be pretty funny and chill while it lasted.

i also some lets players like vinesauce, jontron era game grumps and another guy called manlybadasshero who mostly does horror game lp's, but i havent found anything as comfy as i would prefer.

OP is doing long division to calculate 67/4. At the top you write how many times 4 goes into a certain place value (multiple of 10).

What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
I find that one of the best ways to do both consistently is training yourself in martial arts. An good starting point for learning shaolin kung fu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f8zb_QKZEo .

One of the ways I train mentally is by doing regular meditation. If you are new to meditaion and don't know what style to pick, start with Zazen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL2XUTeoUsM (turn on captions). Some other techniques that I like are detailed here: https://tricycle.org/magazine/tibetan-buddhist-meditation/ .
I think it's important to learn to feel what the chinese call qi. That does not mean you have to become religious or convince yourself that it is anything more than a phychological phenominon, but the reason I think it's important is that it can be used to reach a meditative state even when going about your daily activities. I'm not an expert, but I think a good method is to sit or lie in a position that allows you to breath with your stomach (make sure to remove constraints like belts), close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths with your stomach. As you breath in, imagine energy slowly rising from the base of your spine to the top of your scalp, and as you slowly breath out imagine that energy sinking from your scalp back down to the base of your spine.

>What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
As of lately? Nothing. A few good years ago I was running every day and eating healthy, but for the past few months I've become apathetic and lethargic. I have a severe sugar addiction that's caused all kinds of mental and physical problems for me, although luckily they aren't permanent…
I go for walks at night usually. Its been getting warmer so I'll probably have to push it deeper into the night since I'm not fond of heat exhaustion which I've suffered from numerous times in the past already because of the hellscape I live in.

If it helps my case I eat only organic and non-GMO foods. I haven't touched anything with artificial food coloring, preservatives, aluminum-based leavening, etc. in years. Fast food is a distant memory for me.

This thread isn't meant to be all about me, even if my writing makes it seem like it, it can be anything to do with friends.

Do you have any online friends sushi? How did you get them? What do you like to do with them?

I have a problem making online friends, because all the sites I go on are sushi rollymous. I have tried a few forums, but I can never commit to them, and they're usually pretty bad anyway. I dont have time for IRC, and I always make a big old booby of myself in live conversation. Do you think it's possible for me to make online friends, or should I stick to being by myself for the moment?

>work on building nerve, sudden change to daily nothings is a lot to take on for someone like myself
Feel you there, a bit of a semi-hermit myself, though I've been getting slightly better recently.

A tip for the nerves though, cold showers. It's weird, but it works (for me at least, YMMV). Has the same shape/mechanics as most social situation nervousness stuffs, as in you're very anxious before you jump in, it feels harsh just the first few seconds but then it's not really a big deal once you've gotten used to the temp. And feels easier to do with each time, both the anticipation & first few harsh seconds lose their bite gradually.

Typewriters I'd say, because they're so fun to play with and also because people so often only think about electric things when talking about tech, when there was so much tech prior that only ever relied on mechanical systems.
Still can't really wrap my head around how it actually does so much with only metal springs and levers of different kinds (that I can see), so many options and settings. Been thinking about trying to write a typewriter simulator or something that operates based on the actual state of the parts, to get a real grip on it.

Ravioli,I don't like most pasta sauces, especially bolognese, (something about minced meat in sauces just disgusts me, meatballs and such are fine even though they're made from minced meat) so something that doesn't necessarily require a sauce to be the main component is great.
