I am looking for my Canadian friend. He went offline almost exactly this time 3 years ago.
His name is 0x39. Other names he went by were Nick and turbotard and 疑惑 and lots of other kanji names that I can't remember.
He was very nice to me and was aspiring to be tea otaku. He sometimes posted on Lainchan a long time ago (maybe 5+ years ago?). He was studying computer science back in 2018. One time he went to a maid cafe in Japan (he said it was terrible).
Do you know my friend? How can I reach him?
I just want to find my friend again. I miss him very much. Please let me know if you know him, my email is in the email field!
The next bit is for 0x39 if he's reading this. It's top sekrit private!! So please don't open spoiler unless you're the real 0x39!!!!
Hi, I know I'm doxing you a bit, I'm really sorry. I'm just trying to find you, but I know maybe you don't want to be found. I'm so sorry for intruding. You disappeared at the end of April 2018, I never got to be a better friend to you. We only talked for a little bit. I knew you were going soon, you said you were troubled by things. I wanted so much to hold onto you tighter, but I didn't want to smother you. You slipped away. You said you might make a new steam profile one day, but I don't think that day has come yet. You were a nice person and I wished I could've helped you more when you needed a friend the most. But I got there too late. It was already time for you to go. It's always like that for me: late to every party. I remember, I told you that you should always try to say a proper goodbye to your friends, just so they know for sure. And the last thing you gave to me was just a little "so…bye I guess". I always felt that it didn't count, not when you'd left so much unfinished, friend.
Was your friend a sri lankan tamil who could fluently converse in chinese? And was he into cooking?
Don't lose faith!
I reconnected with one of my online friends after 4 years without a word.
I know exactly what you're going through. Curiously enough, it happened around 3 years ago as well. I had this relationship that was blooming quite nicely but out of nowhere she tells me her younger brother is against us getting together. She was a sexy cold-hearted genius hot dynamite ice queen chinese girl and to this day I hope her brother realizes what's best for her older sister and stops objecting to us being together.
>>11187>Some time ago I gracefully bowed out of my irl friend group and set off on my own path.
I'm curious to know what you mean by "setting off on your own path". Are you not talking to anyone? Just family? Online friends only?
Maybe you have very persuasive reasons in your head to choose being alone. But it sounds like your friend is concerned about you. At the very least, I would recommend sending a polite email back answering their questions (if they asked any) but reiterating that you don't want regular interaction again. That way, if they're worried about you, at least you can reassure them you're alive and doing fine on your own. (Are you?)
I know that replying after so long is easier said than done, but ghosting people is really hurtful. (I've been guilty of it, too.)
You really should respond, at least tell them why you chose to be alone, or maybe go hang out with them, doing stuff with other people can be great fun even if you don't wanna hang out all the time, and you might get out of practice with socialization if you don't. And there might come a time in your life when you find yourself desperately needing friends, not just because you're lonely but perhaps financially screwed over or something, a time you probably won't see coming till it's too late.
Even longer term, eventually the soil will deplete and there will be widespread famine (though not for the upper classes lol), you'll need friends to watch your back then. Or perhaps we can undo the metabolic rift before then, I hope so, I'm not one of those creeps that looks forward to the apocalypse. Gardening with your friends and neighbors would be a good first step to that.
Remindes me about the time I had 3 online friends.
I miss them a lot… Even worse is that it ended because my mental health went downhill.
Never had any online friends since then and also never felt at home somewhere on the Internet too since that happened.
Anyway my condolences OP, hope you find that person.
I sure hope you find your friend OP. While we're on topic, if SH0CKS is reading this: hello! Hope you're still doodling.
Well I got back in touch with my friend. Awkward, as expected. But every little effort counts toward change. Journey of a thousand miles and all that. I hope the rest of the sushis itt are able to find lost friends. >>11203>>11211
Thank you both for encouraging me to email him back. Things are not solved by running away.

Why am I feeling deja vu? You've posted about this before haven't you?
any of the old idlechan guys here?
I have this fear that one day my online friend will just disappear without saying anything and I'll never hear from her again
As soon as we graduated high school, one of my friends passed away. I always see his Steam profile on my friends list when I log in and the number of years logged out is always slowly creeping up. It’s both comforting to see proof of his existence, and sad. I think it’s interesting that the internet both sentences things to perpetuity, and makes things incredibly easy to lose, both at the same time.
