(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?

I'm only 20 so I'm probably (I think?) not older than the average user here. Sorry if this post is off topic. What do you find lonely? Growing up I always felt lonely not being able to talk to anyone IRL about my nerdy hobbies and stuff. But now that it's somewhat normal to talk about memes and anime and shitposting and stuff it feels really strange–it hasn't really made me feel any less isolated I guess. But maybe I'm just being a hipster contrarian.

Imageboards have had their zenith I think, so most posters should be beyond the age where these kind of platforms are most appealing. Especially altchans like this seem to attract more of the originalfags from the old days than buzzing cancer groves like 4chan do.

Anyway I'm 27, but my situation has barely changed since my late teenage years.

Don't you think having a family makes you a normie as well?

Yeah, I think that's kind of it - you get to an older stage of your life and suddenly everyone around you is talking about mundane shit like cars and restaurants and health insurance, meanwhile I can't wait to get home to shitpost about anime or whatever. I guess it doesn't help that I got married relatively young and am thus quite a bit younger than other people with kids.

>>6657
Yeah, i guess so. I was definitely far from being one when I was younger though, and I definitely don't have normie tastes even if everyone around me does. Forgive my boomer ramblings, I guess.

Merry Christmas, and remember to stop and enjoy where you are in life if you can.

makes me wonder if we'll still be shitposting on imageboards at 65+

How did you transition from non-normie to family man?

long story short:
>be hardcore weeb in highschool and uni, study japanese and watch anime all day
>end up studying in a small town in japan
>realize that being in a foreign country away from my annoying family allowed me to open up more socially
>graduate but then spend a few more years in asia
>meet a qt, get married, have a kid
>oh shit, english teaching and translation won't pay the bills anymore
>move back to my home country with wife, grad school, job search, get good job
>still miss watching anime all afternoon then shitposting about it on /a/

that's the gist of it. just curious what other people's experiences were.

I’m can relate. I’m your age, unmarried but in a relationship for 10 years, living together etc. Kind of similar growing up, anime, gaming/computers, usual stuff. I came out of my shell in college a bit but always maintained kind of a more closeted interest in things relevant to here. Met a nice woman at work and…that was that. Pretty domesticated now but yeah there’s always a part of me that wants to sit on IRC all night and play some games.

Someone should make an "Obāsan" board for the senior demographic. That would be just perfect, hehe.

She's got a diamond already, we just see the marriage process as superfluous

Are you two satisfied with your lives? Did you get what you wanted or do you think you settled for less?

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…

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.
