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.

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?

That's interesting, I tend to be one of those lurkers, feeling the community is usually people that already know each other so full of inside jokes I'm not going to get and because well, I'm the newbie so I don't want to say something stupid and ruin the fun for everyone.

Maybe discord isn't just for me, huh

Imagine being at a party but all the people are standing awkwardly against the wall staring eerily at the few conversationalists, passed out drunk, or dead from alcohol poisoning. That's what it is like. It is very uncomfortable to be around. It feels like your home has been transformed into a zoo or terrarium by the silent voyeurs.

It is if you go full nihilist. Aka nothing matters, but I don't care.
It really maxes out confidence and comfort doing whatever you want since you get to spit in the face of cosmic forces. Helps that people respect someone with bottomless confidence, because who can be scared of consequences that don't matter?

 No.6843

A pessimistic view protects me from all the evil in world and all the pain I could experience. If you are negative there is nothing to fear and nothing uncomfortable. Embracing the pain is the final step of a positive person. It negates the nihilistic truth because pain matters and it matters to everyone. Human life is an afford to fight the inherent negativity of life. In this sense, because humans are able to resist negativity in some rare occasions and in some temporary moments through creative and empathic actions, humans are transcendental beings who are able to overcome their fate.

People like me much more since I accepted this mindset. Because I stopped caring about myself. I am not important. What's important is to face the negativity of existence which is a problem for everyone. So I gave up on my own improvement and pleasure and try to help other people. To ba able to help others you also have to care about your own well being otherwise you are too weak.

I never talk to this about anyone except I would be explicitly asked. This is a way of living and others notice. The reasons for what I am doing I keep to myself. I don't even think those are important. In fact I could be very wrong and you could give arguments why my propositions are faulty. That's not what matters to me. It's an ethos not a logical explanation.

(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?

>we just see the marriage process as superfluous
I think it's beneficial to be legally married if nothing else. I wish I find a 3DPD I can settle down with when my instincts start screaming at me who'll be like that. Fat fucking chance though. From what I heard, most women love weddings and it's up there with having kids for them. I absolutely hate weddings and I can't see myself sitting through an entire one, especially when it's my own.

Yeah, can’t complain really (I’m 6667). We haven’t had any kind of fight in the decade we’ve been together, always tuned into the same wavelength, common goals, looking out for the same things. I’m able to be completely myself and live the life I want in terms of what I do with my time. It’s a bit of a big contrast to the relationships my friends have which have the more typical issues.

So yeah, as far as a life companion goes I couldn’t be more content. But that’s only one aspect of life of course…

 No.6845

And to comment here…yeah, you’re not wrong that most women tend to love weddings. It’s another thing she and I can fully agree on disliking…whenever we get invites to weddings we’re immediately both like oh god, how do we politely get out of doing this? Lol.

There’s someone out there for you, no doubt.

Well, for the time being I'm just going to enjoy my forced vacation. After a while I'll start applying for jobs so parents won't get too pissed off and kick me out.

Hi all, we've put together a realtime imageboard intended to capture 4chan's comfy 2005-06 character:

https://chen2.org

Realtime means you can see every letter as it's being typed. Pretty fun, and creates a brisk pace of discussion that makes it feel almost like an imageboard-irc. See you there~

Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?

I spend practically all day browsing various boards and forums and doing nothing of value. I have a couple non-computer-based hobbies but barely any motivation. I've tried to make my computer time more productive (studying languages, programming, even just watching stuff or playing games) but I can never stick with it because to be honestly I hate the computer and everything to do with it.

I'm at the point where you could call me internet addicted, but it's mostly because I feel like I have nothing else to do. I could stop using the computer, but I have no idea how I'd fill my time. I guess I'd stare at the wall? My social life isn't too vibrant either and that doesn't help.

Has anyone else been here / does anyone have some ideas?

Ah, the Zen route.

As for myself, I've tried nothing and I'm all out of ideas. I could just read, like I used to do, but that is just another form of consumption. There really doesn't seem to be much in this world that is "both" interesting and attainable.

Get busy with real life stuff, from exercise to going to the library or walks to meet people in meetups, events, conventions idk
Well that's how I try, sometimes it works, but for job reasons need to get better at coding so that needs a computer.

Hello!

I've been meaning to do a language thread, but I thought it would be more interesting if it includes comfy-posting about different parts of the world.
Feel free to share the -best- resources to learn your language or others that you may be aware of!

I know its hard to not get political but please try to keep it civil, or at most do some friendly banter.

I'm from a country that used to belong to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, my main language is Español, and some tidbits of guaraní/portuguese.

However I'm interested in japanese[0] and russian, and of course, I would like to improve my english.

French sushi learning Japanese here. I have a bunch of techniques for learning languages but lately i have been working on a command line tool to do spaced repetitions. Just like Anki but in the CLI.

My hobby is learning and making invented languages. I've been following the progress of Panunia, Globasa, and Lidepla for some time now. I'd also like to get in touch with the Volapük community before they all die of old age.

Toki Pona may be of some interest to the people here.
