That's what some male NEETs unironically think female NEETs should do.
They don't seem to understand that there's a big difference between someone who dreams of being a traditional stay-at-home mother with two kids and a working husband versus someone who "wants" to lead a NEET life with no responsibilities and gets told to just get married.
Some NEETs who are healthy and able end up this way because they want to avoid and run away from real life due to mental illnesses or bad life experiences and faliures. Looking for a husband would be too much work, too much real life.

Depends on what you mean by stuff. Food and tampons? Or gaming consoles and art supplies?

I'm not a NEET but I had a roommate who was mostly a NEET for 3+ years (she had 2 jobs she quit after a few months since it was too stressful), she had rich parents who funded her lifestyle because she was "working on her mental health". To rely on parents funding your NEET life you just have to get lucky and have ones with a certain personality type.

Anonymous 55212

I mean food, rent and power. It's so alien to me because my parents made me work and study since young, even when i was suicidal because of it, and i still am to this day. Spending these few days at home has been heaven for me, i wish i could just focus on resting and getting better and not on controlling my panic atacks while on the clock.
Sorry for the vent friend, not what you asked for.

Hmm i see. Good for her, it's nice to have this backup.

i'm currently a neet. a broke neet. it sucks.
i was a half-neet but, after how shitty this semester went, i'm taking a break from school.
currently trying to figure out how to write a resume when i have 0 job experience, an unfinished cs degree (i can't do much more than solve c++ toy problems atm), and abysmal social skills.
if i'm lucky, i'll get one of these online jobs i'm drooling at.
like right now my realest goal is just to save up enough for a new laptop/desktop/etc. and ~70 for my meds. thinking $1200 monthly until the end of this year would be damn nice

Me too, I've been trying to pick up some new ones to replace browsing the internet but I give up after a few days. Maybe start off forcing yourself to do it for 10 minutes each day and see how it goes.

Exactly, many of the people who end up like this have mental issues that won't work out in relationships.

currently unemployed and not enrolled in school this summer semester so ive been a parasite for my brothers the whole time.

>wake up around 9am

>get ready in bathroom
>cook breakfast and clean kitchen
>be on my phone and cuddle dog for the next few hours
>play video games
>use phone and read stuff before bed

my sister-in-law is weird as hell though, she got mad i used some of her cheese to cook and my brother was so fed up with her petty complaints about me that he filled the fridge with $70 worth of cheese.

to summarize the last part, my SIL has been annoyed by me being a NEET in their house even though my brothers don't care. I understand her its irritating but she also is the type to hide HER toaster or cups I use often.

Anonymous 56464

That's a normal thing for your brothers to do, to host you if you're in university without a summer job. You should maybe try to find some petty work to do anyways though.

i was a neet for almost a year until just recently
this was my routine:
>wake up at noon
>physical exercise
>read a book
>mental exercise
>cook lunch
>french lessons
>cook dinner
>browse imageboards and messages
>watch tv (anime/movie)
>read book

Anyone else here with an addiction to mindless internet browsing and reading comment sections due to being a NEET? I want to get over it but it's too difficult.

All of you are so productive; drawing, learning languages, playing instruments or at least finishing a couple of TV episodes every day.

More than half of my day is filled with reading posts and comments on forums about relationships, dating and "life topics". What do men think about X, why do people think that Y, is it true that Z and so on and so forth. When I read news, I only skim the top third of the article and immediately scroll down to read other people's opinions. Sometimes I participate in discussions and waste the whole day refreshing and waiting for replies. I can't even concentrate on other things anymore.

The experiences of other people greatly interest me because I'm not really living life now. Doing this makes me feel as if I wasn't missing out on everything. Talking to strangers on the internet (excl. obvious trolls) makes me feel better because the only people I interact with irl are my family. The few friends I have moved away right after high school and we talk infrequently.

Before I know it, another day is over. Nothing finished, nothing done. Wake up, rinse and repeat. Pls help.

Anonymous 63831

I'm in the same situation. I found myself browsing lolcow for the same reason even though I don't particularily care for the people posted there. A reason for me is simply boredom.

Currently I'm getting pressured into getting a driver's license. I think it's useful as I will have to work together with someone else. In other words, it won't be as easy to slack off as I have to practise the actual driving. Maybe getting some sort of goal like that would help you as well? A goal that involves doing something with someone else so you both can check on each other and do the task.

Hope everyone else in this thread is also doing well.

Anonymous 63932

Same here. I stopped being active in my creative hobbies to refresh the same boring sites every day and daydream about the projects I could be doing if I didn't live in a small isolated town.

Now I obsessively read lolcow, ONTD, and Reddit comments and don't do much else at all.

This happens to me too. I have no interest in dating irl but I somehow end up reading forums and threads about relationships and things like divorce. Also I constantly just google random thoughts that come into my head to see if other people have anything to say about it. I wish I could spend my time researching things I'm actually interested in but I guess that would require more mental effort to engage with it and doing this almost replaces a social life as you mentioned. All I can say is try to recognize when you're doing it and gather the strength to get off the computer and do something else.

I haven't been outside in 2 years and I don't think I'm going to get better anytime soon. I wish I had a shut in friend who's in the same boat to share feels with. Exchange music, anime/mangas, tv shows/movies or talk about and share opinions about everything really. I think internet's toxicity is getting to me and I don't know what to do.

I wish we had more women here and we could set up a little club. Or you wouldn’t have to wait a whole week for someone to respond. I effectively live as a NEET because I have all the money I need and my “job” (it’s nothing like conventional work) has no rigid schedule most of the time and leaves me with the “freedom” to do nothing at all the rest of the time.

I am only 20 years old and wasting my life alone. My mother and father have been dead for three and four years, respectively. I have nothing but online interactions. Nobody cares about me or anything I do; moids only because they want to fuck me, and other women already have friend groups and have little in common with a lonely loser like me. I wish we could all be close to one another in real life and none of us would have to be lonely. Without moids, without toxicity, only love and support.

I used to do this all the time. Try Adderall, it’s completely possible that you have ADHD. Part of the reason I did this was that I’m autistic (so I’d look up little things and insignificant events to try and learn literally every scrap of knowledge I could about them), but that doesn’t really cause this for many people.

i was in a relationship for 7 years and my ex was a half neet and so was i. we both worked <20 hours a week bc we're both autists and wanted to play vidya more than we wanted extra money

after covid hit my city i lost my job and now i'm on neetbux. never getting off them i'm fully embracing the femcel lifestyle

What is your job? I made a post here >>>/feels/46015 and that kind of job sounds like it would actually fix my whole life. I have minimal needs and could live comfortably on only like 500 euro a month, but every single employer wants 40 hour/week wageslaves. I tried a couple of those jobs, all varying trades, but they drain the soul out of my body and make me suicidal. I'm desperate for options

Anonymous 67320

It's similar to full-time crypto trading, but not really. It helps to have money that you've been saving up and can invest, like from an inheritance.

It's not really as hands-off as it seems, it's just that I have enough saved up to where if I don't really feel like doing anything, I don't and just chill wasting my time. I can't bring myself to do it if I don't feel like it.

neet life can get pretty depressing sometimes…i could work but my boyfriend says i don’t need to and he’d rather me focus on things i like! which im grateful for, albeit the bouts of depression from all the free time. however i plan to maybe begin classes in spring online so ill be semi-neet but at least doing something! it does give me time to exercise and do crafts/work on music and art to perhaps sell….ahh i dont know i think as im getting used to it again it is not so bad!

I've been NEETing for months but now I'm looking for work. I don't mind working but I can only do it part-time and I have no education so I'm just working low paying jobs. I'm lucky to live in a country with all the welfare. I was a total NEET for years after dropping out of school and I still have no social life and don't go outside much. I'm pretty much schizoid at this point from decade of isolated life.

I don't recommend anyone becoming a NEET just out of laziness or aimlessness. But I know that if you are mentally ill it's hard to live a normal life. I regret throwing away my whole life, I'm 30 and it feels like it's too late to change anything at this point. I used to think that I didn't care about being alone and broke, but the older I get the more I realize how much I've missed out on life. I can't even stand to read about people with friends, families and normal life because it stings so much so I stick to really unrealistic fiction.

Anonymous 73892

I think I've found my golden mean now. I started a job a few weeks ago. Work from home, 4-6 hours a day taking inbound calls and reading information from an internal wiki. Ideally I would not be taking calls but doing online chat instead, but I'd get too distracted tbh (I used to do that in an office and still got too distracted). At least I can work on my social skills a little. Calls come in maybe once per half hour and take 2-3 minutes each, so whenever I fuck up I tell myself that I can start fresh with the next random stranger. And I have lots of downtime to do internet shit.

So in a way I still consider myself a NEET because I barely work and it's from the comfort of my own bed and it's not a living wage, and I still don't ever leave the house unless it's to get food.

Anonymous 73893

The dream, how'd you find a job like that?

I saw an opening for a hotline providing covid vaccine information, so I uploaded my CV on a whim and they called me the next day. Interviewing was very informal and I didn't have to show up in person or even do a video call. I'm lucky because everything I've done so far was very heavy on empathetic communication and that's what they were looking for the most. It's going to end in 6 months but according to the other employees it's common to switch to a different project within the company, so I might stay there if it stays this nice. My callers are super nice so far, even when they're frustrated, and I had my first antivax conspiracy theorist yesterday, so that was fun and entertaining. Having a pretty good time so far

Finally made it out of NEET-dom, bros. I lost my job because of Corona schedule complications a couple months ago and just started my new one that pays even better than the last. It was so scary, this month was the last month I could pay rent and I've already lost 8lbs(128-120lbs) because I had to cut my food spending. I was so anxious and scared but the only good things that came out of it were me learning Live2D and I started voice chatting with my uni friends again. I don't have any friends in the town I'm in, so they're the only people I talk to around my age and the only time I'm really social anymore. Sorry to blog so much, but I'm so damn happy right now, I'm going to try to reconnect with some of my other female friends I haven't spoken to in ages.
I hope you did well, fren!

Damn, sis, you must've gotten some string pulled because they never give disability for just depression unless you have the absolute worst case of it, assuming you live in the US. An ADHD diagnosis might negate your disability because it would require a different treatment plan, I'm not sure, though. Getting money from the government is complicated.

I mean, technically you can find something better, even with close to no experience - being an active person, with lots of networking and stuff, but I am somehow afraid to even step there, I feel I just don't belong, all this is so alien to me, I just want to be chill and minimize all possible stress in my life

NEET and hikikomori for nearly a decade.

-I get NEETbux and am exempted from having to find work because mental issues but not yet disability despite doctors signing me off for it however I am getting some special social services and soon will be able to get a cleaner come and people help me with daily functioning
-I reached the point where I honestly hope I never work but extra money would be nie despite not ever needing to spend any

I like the NEET life but hate it as well I do wish I could enjoy what normals enjoy and have worked in the past. I think eventually you just accept you are who you are limitations and all and once you quit fighting against yourself you feel at peace in a way even if still suicidal. Once anhedonia strikes hard and you no longer have hobbies and no mental energy to read anything other than manga you are sort of fucked and spend your time online not really doing anything.

I just feel normal except miserable and prone to getting strange thoughts and all that but I guess I am lucky? I wish I was normal and able to work plus enjoy it and living a regular life but nothing is worth doing.
