>hang out with moid friend a lot
>he likes me
>start to not like him as much
>he acts as though his happiness depends on me
what the fuck do i do i want to leave him but i feel so bad, he's always asking to hang out and shit too

Tell him to pay attention to other girls because you are just not feelin it. It happens that moids get clingy even obssesice sometimes. Give him a no in a nice way but also tell him he got what he needs to get most other girls so everything ends well even if its a lie. Frien zone him but with the other hand give him a pat on the back otherwise he can end up hating you.

Anonymous 51011

>i want to leave him
Then leave him. Stop going along with the patriarchy brainwashing and prioritising moid feeling above your own. He wouldn't do it for you.

yeah the one job i was confident i got didn’t respond to me after the interview (even though it went so well!) maybe because i didnt want to do fulltime? but in their hiring it said part time :(

one thing im 100% doing is some online classes in august, so thats something that wont make me feel so guilty. i kind of have a 5 month window to continue neeting and actually pushing with my hobbies (i limited my daily goals to just 3 and so far its helping today) and i think im going to keep looking into some jobs as well. im at least content with the fact ill be taking those classes though!

anyway, thank you anon.

I miss going places with friends. Having a local group to get together with. Not because covid ruined it for me, but because I haven't had it in a decade. I'm 31 in a student town and have two local friends, one of which I don't even like, and the other is never really around. I miss nothing more than to be with a few people I like and hang out until early morning and fall asleep or be driven home by one of them or stumble out of a dingy small-town night cafe. I've gotten really lonely and I finally realized that it's because of how cynical I've become. I've lived through a lot of stuff and people always tell me how resilient I am, but I'm really not, I've just barely hanging on simply because I'm too cowardly for suicide. I can't form bonds with people anymore because I'm so wary of everything now and every little thing turns me off. I miss being naive and accepting and excitable. I know this has destroyed a lot of friendships for me. I just want to go back to being a dumbass teen and find some people I belong with.

It also makes me miss the Tumblr era. Not the politics side but the dynamics of how the community was based on romanticizing yourself and your connections to others. I still maintain that the SJW side of Tumblr was relatively easy to avoid as long as you weren't trying to befriend any of them. A lot of the contacts I made on Tumblr are pinkpilled now, anyway.
It's embarrassing to admit but I was small-time popular on Tumblr in a niche community and I really loved having an open inbox and responding to people and making friends. Sometimes I want to go back and make a blog again now that most of the hardcore crowd moved to Twitter, but
my main issue is that in the past years I've done so much weird shit that has led to so many weird situations, I can't even begin to describe it all and if I talked about it people would judge the hell out of me. At the same time, I don't think I can truly be close to people who don't know that side of me because it's so elemental to who I am now. Plus I've gotten so paranoid about internet safety and I know that if I tied too many things about me together on one blog, some people could find it and gather info about who I am. I feel really stuck and isolated and it's all because I got too bitter over the years. I don't know how to change.

I want to be alone and I want friends too. My whole life I have wanted to escape other people. I feel so sad. I'm so fucking sad. But if somebody were to reach out I'd fuck it all up anyway. Why am I like this?

Anonymous 51065

I feel p lonely lately pretty much bc I've ruined every friendship I've ever made bc most of my best friends growing up moved away, and this sort of made me push people away before they could leave me (I guess???). Anyway, dealing with that now means I barely talk to anyone outside of my family which means my bf and his close 3 friends which are now my only close friends as well. smh. I did this, but my career goal places me in a very sociable environment anyway (plus I sometimes still go to my campus). Its hard making your own outlets so often

constantly feel so doom laden about the future. i have this tunnel vision. and all i can see along the way is the gradual stripping of our freedom, privacy and a world where, unlike before where the masses had a chance of victory if they could unite against some perceived evil, we are simply powerless. a world where the powers that be have ascended the commonality of human weakness, and thus we are reduced to consoomerism and wage slavery. ive been aware of this for some time of course, so the point of this post is not that this is some revelatory idea, but rather that i just cant see a reason to live or a reason to care about anything when the future looks so bleak. i seriously cannot imagine a future where things are better in anyway than they are now. just a gradual decay of culture and of identity, of nations and of peoples, until we are all the same, without difference, without anything to fight amongst ourselves over, just drones made to work for them. how do i stop thinking like this? the only thing keeping me going is that this is probably what they want me to do, to give up. felt like a right schizo typing this, sorry, need to stop spending so much time online and on /x/ lol

I hear this a lot. Guess I'm in doomer circles. I often agree, but tonight I don't. You know that the only reason they have so much power of us is because of the consumerism and all that jazz right? If life ain't worth living, if there is no point, why not attempt to do something about it all?

They only have power because we are complacent. It won't necessarily always be that way. But personally I'm content with my warm bed, my warm food, and my anime.

You perfectly described what an "open society" is. I started reading about Soros, his agenda, his fundations, his projects, and god, it's so depressing.

It's like we have regressed to a pre-modern state, when the masses weren't educated and were at the mercy of those who kept knowledge for themselves. But what is even more depressing, is to know that everyone has the education to access all the information they need to understand their fate. But they don't.
I hate postmodernism. I just want to live in a modern world with meaningful struggles.

>It's like we have regressed to a pre-modern state, when the masses weren't educated and were at the mercy of those who kept knowledge for themselves.
Not even close. Premodern was decentralised and everyone had a kind of independent mentality acting in their own interests and not getting caught up in ideas that serve another, impossible to control in any way resembling the modern hellscape of mass media and totalitarian states. Even writing was localised. There was no standard culture, orthography, education, or ways of doing things in general. They barely had a state in comparison to modern states to. So it's impossible to achieve what has been normal in modernity for hundreds of years.

I wish I had a friend group that enjoys healthy activities and doesn't pressure me into drinking loads of alcohol.
I really hate how normal it is here to not only drink that much alcohol yourself but also pressure everyone to do the same. Even every of our office get-togethers has to involve gin tonic. If you don't drink at least two glasses people will tell the CEO that you are pregnant. They tried to do that to me but after a few months the CEO realised it wasn't true.

Just drink alcohol if you want to do so but leave other people alone. What do people gain from these games?

i'm in limerence with someone online and hundreds of miles away. i'll never tell him about my shallow feelings because i value our time together more than potentially ruining those moments. we also don't know each other beyond the virtual realm and are in different life stages. he probably doesn't see me like how i see him despite spending a lot of time together on our shared hobby. telling myself the above stops me from escaping too hard. dunno. reciprocated feelings would be too good to be true. we'd only be falling in love with one another's personas without their flaws. i want to find someone who has his strengths and love language and actually love them. i want to be more secure in myself to not quietly depend on him for little serotonin shots throughout the day.

I don't think "spends as much time with SO as humanly possible" is necessarily the mark of a good relationship. People need space, and socialization with others.
Most people tend to choose other people/things over their gf/bf at least some of the time.

TIL a cool new word, thx anon

I actually had this happen to me recently on the receiving end and you're right about how falling in love with eachother's personas is just bad news. You could try playing it safe and get to know him before admitting any feelings- if it turns out you don't really want a deeper connection you can pull back and return to serotonin shots.

It's possible that it really was a terrible relationship and he just talked her up in an effort to convince other people (and maybe himself) that she wasn't so bad. Sunken cost and all that.
If he was still talking about her to his friends as though she was great (and saying the opposite to you,) I think that'd be a red flag. But I don't think the fact that he did it at the time and has since changed his tune is necessarily something to worry about. There could be a few different explanations for it.

There's a difference between meeting a group of old friends or playing games in a group and spending time with this one girl he met online. A guy in a relationship doesn't need to spend time alone with another girl.
Anon has three options here:
1. you talk to him and tell him it is unacceptable to choose a random internet girl over his gf; I'd require to see every chat log too, to make sure he wasn't cheating. He can get a male videogame buddy.
2. you leave;
3. you wait until he inevitably leaves you for her.
3 is going to happen, you can be sure of that. It is a question of time until the other girl gives him a green light.

Not op but there is a difference between hanging out(a few hours) vs spending hours with someone, who isnt in the relationship, everyday.
Also taken women shouldnt have straight male friends. The world isnt ideal, very few men respect friendships. From personal experince they tends to think theres something more just because youre being friendly, because you want to be friends. They dont always see it like that.

Besides the boyfriend sounds like hes cheating. At least emotionally hes providing all of his attention to a girl online and putting her first.
Does this other girl know about you?

And then you get sucked into a relationship with them and start cheating on your bf, just like that?
Free will or critical thinking or anything doesn't factor into the equation at any point for either side?
You make it sound like it's completely impossible for men and women to have platonic friendships. OP said herself that he's never even met the girl IRL, you think he's going to uproot his life and run away to be with her because he has fun playing video games with her a few times a week?

What about women who date guys who are bisexual? Or women who are bisexual themselves? Can they just never have any friends at all because every person they meet is a potential romantic partner that would compete with their bf/gf?

I can't tell if you're a moid or a girl in the same situation as the "other girl" and want to rationalize it.
>OP said herself that he's never even met the girl IRL
That's precisely what makes it sure he is cheating. She is not some cherished old friend. She is some rando he met online. She should be utterly unimportant to him in relation to his own real life girlfriend. Why isn't he playing with a male? Why do you think a guy in a relationship needs an online female "friend"?
>What about women who date guys who are bisexual?
The dynamics of same-sex attraction in bisexuality are completely different. It is entirely possible for a bisexual guy to engage with a dude in friendly banter without wanting to suck his penis. But a guy who lives with his girlfriend meeting a random girl online and ditching precious time with his girlfriend to "play" with her? When has this ever not lead to cheating?

Some people are weak will and will cheat with someone who is giving them more attention then their partner.
And yes people do uproot their whole lives to be with their lovers. Its not unheard of. Just because they live together doesnt stop the cheating. Which could be all the more reason why he rather play with this girl then spend time with his gf. From the sounds of it he rather spend more time with her. He might not even be aware that hes emotionally cheating.

Anonymous 51456

You are ignoring the fact that this is simply an online relationship. She should not come close to the importance of his real life girlfriend. If he is not able to throw away this meaningless online fling if she asked him to, he could at least prefer to spend time with his girlfriend instead of sitting on a computer playing games with some nebulous chick he has never met like an autist. I would have dumped him faster than light.

when you ask a woman if she prefers a straight man to a bi man, she will say yes, thinking about it in theory and with all else being equal. but ultimately she will just be attracted to whoever she is attracted to and it won’t really matter if she likes him. it’s a small subset of women with a strong aversion to bisexuals who will dislike such a man. unless he talks about cock constantly like a faggot, then any self-respecting woman wouldn’t consider him a viable romantic option.

I hope they are both really impartial (unlikely).

Anonymous 51582

I did used to buy things everyday because I was very low energy at the time (undiagnosed illness). I got over that by sorting the illness out. Also got over never having had sweets at home growing up which also caused me to gorge on the few ones I would have in case they were taken away.

Basically you have to find out why you are craving these things. Are you not eating enough or enough of the right things? Do you have a bad mental loop forcing you to eat things you don’t actually want? Are you trying to make yourself feel better or make up for times you didn’t have treats before?

When you still do want something, willpower is really hard so instead of denying yourself, try and reduce the cravings. You can try and find healthier foods to eat instead to subdue cravings. For example, instead of peach sweets have actual peaches.

If you still really want the sweets, just eat them and enjoy. Don’t make them into “bad” foods as that will just make you want them more and cause disordered eating.

To a lesser extent, I can't even be bothered to walk downstairs to the kitchen 90% of the time.

Oh finally a place where I can dump shit im concerned about. This will probably unreadable in some parts because feels are hard so sorry in advance

When I had friends in high school I still felt like I was on the bottom rung on the friendship ladder. I've since moved physically away from them and even if I dont talk to them anymore, it kind of fucking sucks that neither of them have even tried to talk to me or see how I'm doing. Maybe its hypocritical of me or maybe it's better I stopped contacting them since they were jerks in their own subtle ways, who knows.

I'm not a virgin anymore and I have a bf in a long distance relationship, but the fact that I never had a physical connection with anyone irl really is fucking me up bad. Sure my bf and I see each other since we live about 4 hours away by train but STILL not having anyone in my area to spend time makes me want to neck myself. I know I should be thankful I dont have to put up with a majority of moid bullshit but I feel like im missing out and salty whenever one of my friends talks about the dates she's going on, how cute he is, etc. The prospect of meeting a guy I might like in school terrifies me, but at the same time I'm probably never going to meet a guy that likes the same stuff as me, or wouldn't shame me for baggage or being really shy, whatever projection guys always engage in

Despite all this I recently got prescribed birth control that might help with my PMDD, and im starting to feel just the slightest motivation that eventually things are going to be ok if I work through each problem one step at a time. Fingers crossed that its the one thing that helps me out of my depression and weight gain slump

I used to be ridiculously bad conversation for a long while, and then I decided to start talking to randos from /soc/ to get better.
I'd be willing to bet that most of them are just as bad, if not worse than how bad you think you are at conversation.
A trick that I learned from my time there is to always try to get the other person to talk about their experiences. Even the most autistic of autists love to do that.

A basic conversation starter I usually go for is "Heya,what's the gameplan for today?" since that usually avoids the "nothing much" response that you'd get by asking "what are you up to?"
But you should probably reword it since the way I talk is pretty cringe.

Even if you're completely uninterested in what they're talking about, ask questions or try to relate what they're saying into your own experiences.
If they're listening to music, ask for recommendations. If they're playing a game get them to gush about it to you. Etc etc etc

However, not even I can get the people who give one word replies to speak more.

Anonymous 51711

>Even if you're completely uninterested in what they're talking about
NTA, but the thing is, I wish I was interested.
I've got no real personal relationships because I can't find it in me to care about the details of people's lives. I've tried adding people from /soc/, and we exchange greetings and maybe have a short conversation, and then we literally never speak to each other again because they never message me, and I never message them because why would I?
I have this very generalized desire to connect with people, but on an individual level I've never really met anyone who I'd want to go out of my way to speak to again. It always feels like a waste of time, or that there are things I could be doing instead that I actually want to do.
Other people seem to enjoy making small talk and stuff like that.
It feels like something's wrong with me.

hi anons. im seeking some insight, or maybe wisdom

i have always felt inferior to most people as long as i remember. to be brief, i have never felt i have a place to belong. i have a couple friends and a boyfriend but i can only relate to them all to a certain extent (my boyfriend the most, which im grateful for) the thing that is bothering me is remembering some discord communities/overall online 4chan esque communities i used to be in. they were bpd schizophrenic unemployed drug users but they all seemed so much more intelligent and cooler than me. i always envied them, i wanted to be them so bad despite knowing they were also “losers”. some people would be nice, some mean, but for some reason it would genuinely hurt me. id get panic attacks feeling like i wasnt good enough. this has also happened in a community of really sweet artists i was in once.

the feeling is terrible. it makes me so anxious to the point of vomiting, even with things like scrolling through prettier girls on instagram. i dont know what to do about this and have tried to love myself more, but i cant rid the feeling of wanting to be somebody else or wondering if im really me.

i wish i was a bpd drug addict girl that everyone liked. but instead im weak, reserved, and in my own world.

i wish i was e famous or something as well but i dont like zoomer culture. i just want to be adored and not feel inferior. i try to continue doing what makes me happy personally each day, but even then i question if its what i should do. i question if i should shift my path to be cool and adored.

people say thats now who i should want to be, but ive seen multiple instances of those types of girls who are very well liked and get everything they want. so i wonder if i should start to become that.

I have bad news for you, you can't unilaterally be adored and not also considered inferior by some. To be adored for something is to fail at something else. No one who values physical strength, or financial know how, gives a rat's ass about Stephen Hawking other than admitting he's smarter than them. You make it sound like you aren't smart. I would think that if you were beautiful you would be aware. You don't sound socially competent or connected, so that's a bust for popularity. You don't sound like your very competent in any field either. I have good news though, there is still a path open to being superior. The only option you have left is being the most hard working at something, anything. Writing books, running a business, being a good employee, lifting weights. I don't give a fuck. Your only option if you desire the feeling of superiority is to work yourself and work yourself hard. Don't tyrannize yourself, you are a human after all, lazy and feeble. You have to bargain and barter with yourself to get yourself moving.

You also have the option of getting on prescription adderall if you need some get up and go.

>i wish i was a bpd drug addict girl that everyone liked. but instead im weak, reserved, and in my own world.
I felt this way once. After entering the adult social sphere I realized quickly people prefer charming yet dysfunctional individuals. They also don't take well to teetotalers.

Difference is I'm happiest alone. I generally dislike interacting with others 90% of the time because maintaining relationships is annoying. So while my ego is bruised when I fail at being an attention-and-love magnet, it would be a shitshow if I was. I cut all my friends out even now so it would be worse by tenfold.
When you're a person like this you learn to love yourself faster than the BPDfags and extroverts. Who else is there to validate me? Some random who will get on my nerves in a month (side note: not their fault)? Why would I change who I am and harm myself for temporary people?

Is my advice just isolate yourself socially and immerse yourself in hobbies? Maybe. You're around yourself the most even if you're not a loner, might as well love and take care of her.

There's this E-girl that my boyfriend used to be romantically involved with whose semi-famous for moaning over VOIP in games, and one day, he was screen-sharing and showing his history to try and find a link, and I saw her profile in his history extremely often. Multiple times a day he'd visit her profile, every single day.

So naturally, I was a bit insecure.

She was emotionally manipulative too. Claimed to have a brain tumor, and would use that as an excuse to treat people badly, strung guys along, and tried to guilt trip people into giving her cash, but gets fidgety and evasive every-time anyone asks about the severity of the tumor. I had always been skeptical she even had it in the first place just because nothing was adding up, but didn't say anything 'cause I'm jealous, and I thought it'd look like I was just trying to paint her badly.

I get distant sometimes due to depression, and he and that girl started talking again, and they would talk every single day, and he'd vent to her about me being distant. It made me so uncomfortable. I asked to see their chat logs, and they were subtly flirting with each other (joking about how she should swallow, etc). I broke up with him for some time. Then, he cut her out of his life for me after far too fuckin' long, but I still haven't been able to get over it, and I dunno if I'm being unreasonable or not.

He cheated on his last ex, and I didn't find out until a few days ago. He always kept that hidden from me out of shame. His dad is a cheater, and had a mental breakdown a couple months ago, wondering if he's "becoming his father," and I'm adding all the pieces together, and wondering if he cheated on me, and I just don't know it.

my eating habits suck. i had a period of time where i would restrict on-and-off but i could never keep my weight down for long. around that same time is when my sleep schedule started to get really messed up, so i was up later. the combination of not eating in the day and staying up late made me crack and now i feel like i have to eat at nighttime even when i’m not hungry. i eat a bunch of gross unhealthy food, feel guilty and disgusting about it and tell myself i’m turning over a new leaf, stay on whatever diet for like a week and then get an intense craving for fast food and it starts all over again. i ate like 4 or 5 donuts last week. plus whenever someone offers me food i never turn them down. i wish i had self control, i just feel like a pig sometimes. does anyone else have this issue?

i have the same issue where i can never say no to offered food. i feel like it's impolite to say no when someone offers so i always end up eating it even when i'm not hungry. i was also taught at a young age to eat everything off your plate and my family would always pile my plate to high heaven, making me eat more than what was necessary. i have no self control either and will eat past the point of satiation.
i think you should keep a food diary and record when you feel hungry. and you should ask yourself before grabbing food "am i hungry enough to eat an apple right now?" if the answer is yes, proceed to eat. if no, you're either bored or have a craving, and your body isn't actually hungry. it's important to recognize hunger cues like stomach growling, your body feels weak, unfocused mind etc. or else you're just eating unnecessary calories.
you should try to surround yourself with healthier food options to prevent binges on unhealthy foods. avoid buying junk food. if it isn't in reach, then you won't eat it in the first place. you should try to have pre-cut fruits and veggies as snacks so you can easily grab it when you feel the need to munch on something.

My boyfriend is kind of judgemental about my life and there's many details I don't talk about because I'm afraid of being critiqued that I'm mired in the past. But he says things like "I take my parents for granted" when a huge chunk of the reason I act that way is because I was sexually abused by my brother for years and when I told them they did nothing (granted by then the abuse had stopped, but still) except make me forgive him and then they got angry at me when I eventually told the police via another person who I talked to. I got told I ripped the family apart, etc. There's more details, but the point is, it is hard for me to love them in a certain way after that, especially since they wanted me to go to the same college as my brother and hey didn't teach me driving and had me driven by him to school.

My boyfriend knows they were involved in trying to cover everything up, but he doesn't know the more fucked up details because again, I'm scared of being accused of being stuck in the past. But I dislike his judgements. He never had anything comparable occur with his parents and he loves them whereas I do care about mine, but I just don't feel attached in the same way and I feel like he thinks I'm like that because I'm white or something but it's not, it's because my parents hurt me. I understand they were in a difficult position as everyone tells me to think of them.

Less of a vent and more just sending my worry out into the world so it's not all in my head.

Mom's had multiple "strokes" ovdr the past few weeks (mainly the left side of her face seizing up). She had already gone to our GP who concluded it wasn't strokes and gave her some vitamins. Then it happened again last saturday, this time even worse while she was at work. She called me and asked me to drive her to the hospital. That's the last time I really saw her.

They scanned her on monday and it's not a stroke but a cyst. I don't know if that's better or worse but they'll operate her this week.

It sucks, I can't see her and I had a few break downs. My dad died in 2018 pretty abruptly during an overnight stay at the hospital and not being with him in his last few hours fucking kills me. Mom is all I really have left since me and my siblings aren't that close.

I'm trying to keep it together tho, keeping the house clean, doing laundry, not saying anything at my job. God the human body is ass though.

next September i'm going to live with several of my coursemates, including a girl who was in love with me for a period (we're bi) i rejected her due to the fact we were both in the same course, i was unsure how i felt about her at the time, she appeared to have an on/off bf, she was rather pushy with her advances and because we have a mutual friend, another course mate, who liked her.
After gently rejecting her, she rebounded right away with our mutual friend who likes her and the two have had a "more than friends but we're not dating uwu" relationship whilst the girl who liked me adamantly denies liking our mutual friend and saying that she would much prefer dating a girl, particularly a girl in our group (mutual friend is a male)
after i told mutual friend that she has an on/off bf he flipped out, they had an argument and then weeks later they continued their pseudo relationship with the only thing changing being that mutual friend-kun now has a more cynical view of rebounder-chan and their relationship whilst still liking her the same
theyre at the point now that they're on the cusp of actually dating each other and everyone in our group can see it going this direction and despite rebounder-chans moments of disloyalty she does appear to like him back
we've all warned mutual friend-kun but he's aware of what he's getting into and we've all said all we can say at this point
anyway, my concern here is a selfish one, my relationship with mutual friend-kun is a rather vitriolic one and he's been harsher with me than he would others due to rebounder-chan having liked me, the fact that he's a rebound is something he clearly resents me a bit for
so my worry is that when i actually live with these people and they start actually dating, mutual friend-kun will go from resenting me to actually disliking me as the woman his gf used to actually love (rebounder-chan has kissed another girl in our house share but im the only one shes confessed romantic feelings for aside from mutual friend-kun)
another worry is that i have is that rebounder-chan will let our friendship dwindle down since she wants to prove to mutual friend-kun that she's loyal now
best case scenario, they date briefly and then break up before we actually live together but i don't know if i can count on that
anyway any advice guys?

im feeling awful lately thinking about my future and what to make of it. i moved in with my boyfriend in september but there really is nothing for us here so im trying to move back to my home state when our lease is up, that way we’ll be closer to my family and i also have insurance/my psychiatrist/my college and we will overall be in a nicer area. he is really excited as well because he dislikes where we live at the moment. im working to get my license and so is he and i begin a new fulltime job soon. with that said, im worried about my future and what choices to even fucking make now and im worried ill never find my path. ive been doing better lately with my anxiety but his brother who is living with us and currently moving out. (said he was moving to home state with us, then wasnt, then offered to take me to the new job, then isnt, and now ill be spending $150 or more a week just to get rides until i can get my license) when we move my mom said she can help us a bit if needed until we have money coming in, and my home state isnt where id ideally like to be but its the best option right now for me and im grateful she is willing to help if we need. i was hoping i could just do college fulltime while my boyfriend works fulltime but i understand he may need me to chip in so id probably have to get a part time job which sucks because i wouldnt be able to focus solely on school and would probably have to do part time classes as well just overall setting me back. and i want time for hobbies because its something id like to make a future out of one day too if possible. i know this is life but it feels awful, and maybe im overthinking it. i feel like i was such a dreamer, thinking id find a perfect career or be able to just focus on classes and my hobbies. im not even working my new job yet and im worried so much. we could stay here another year or so, but my mom really wants me to come home and i just worry due to insurance and my psychiatrist (id have to fly up there every couple of months just to see her) if we stayed another year it would enable me to focus on school fulltime without needing to work but im not sure if its worth it.

ive worked fulltime before, ive worked a job and taken classes simultaneously before, so its not like its new, and i managed it but it took a toll on me. im wondering if i should abandon college. im so lost, truly. ive been looking into religion again, or some sort of guidance for myself. what i really want is an online business or career in music or art! thats my biggest dream. but i have so much to work on with those 3 things and i know it isnt realistic… so i was going to continue college and pursue forensics (my “realistic” career goal). now im debating haha communications? or scrap college! be an egirl or something! i hate being an adult and i know its just how it is, im sorry to be a whiny bitch. i dont mind working hard to get where i need to be in life but i just want to follow the right path for myself and not be so stressed out and using my time for the wrong things. ultimately i know im the only one who can make these choices but i feel like i just need some outside opinion or to at least get it out.

I moved out right before COVID and I still had no chance to find IRL friends because of how fucked things are.

I can't even find a job and it's been a full year because I am an immigrant and the whole country started hating my nation now… I see so much shittalk about my nation everywhere on the news and social media. I can't even truly learn the language yet because everything around is closed, so I am doing my best to learn it alone.

On top of that right before I moved a lot of friends whom I thought were friends ended up doing nothing but using silly me: I would help them out with anything, spend all of my time and energy listening to them just for them to end up turning their back on me the second it became possible. And my closest duo were talking shit about me the whole time and laughing at my problems.

Finding friends on internet turned into nothing but a disaster because it'd mostly be thristy scrotes who would be interested in you only if you are single, or would still hit on you even if you are taken. Or just people who can't handle conversation well, or huge timezone differences.

To make things short, I am out there feeling miserable because of the dumbest thing: my partner's friend kicked me out of his server where he would stream his movies and I didn't notice until that happened, but friend thinks it's nbd because I am with my partner IRL and we are not too close, but here I am, feeling like a complete shit and just wanting to do nothing but cry and go to sleep. I feel so stupid for feeling so sensitive over such thing.

I thought today would be good, but it started like shit. Went to a huge store so I could finally get limited edition ice cream, just to see that it got sold out and there are won't be any until next year. I also had to take care of my partner's panic attack because there were a lot of people.

I sound super whiny, but I also appreciate my old friends who are still with me and I cherish them, but their irl lives are very busy now, so they barely spend any time on social media so I can't spend time with them.

I just feel so lonely.

i recently turned 20 and have no idea what to do with my life. im starting a fulltime factory job soon to build up my savings again and then i plan to move back to my home state with my boyfriend as well as begin college again. i dont even know what i want to major in though. maybe being neet has caused a lot of brain fog and thrown me off track but its only been for 6 months. it hurts seeing so many put together girls with their careers on track. i like to make music and play bass, draw and write and sew but obviously those are just hobbies. i would love to have my own business one day but that should also be seen as a side thing. so right now i know i need to find a career path and i have no idea what. makes me feel like a failure and i dont really think i want to be doing entry level jobs my entire life. i mean i definitely plan on finishing my associates, but i have no clue what to do after that.

I went through this too, multiple times. My family was very hot and cold with me growing up and as a result I have a huge fear of abandonment and very low expectations for how I should be treated. I don't really feel like my life began until a few years ago when I began to see what was happening and pull out of it. Before that I always just went with what other people wanted, with little control over anything. No wonder I attracted so many abusers.

tfw had only friend online for 5 years until he ghosted me for no reason at the beginning of this year and i just texted him like a month ago asking what i did ( desperation ) after telling him that it was over ( i was angry and i really regret it now. no response of course ) a month prior and i just feel so humiliated and stupid LOL i wish i hadn't sent anything i know he's seen them bc the last time i checked to see if he got back to me he had changed his profile picture and name but no response… i sound like such a stalker i'm so disgusted with myself i'm sorry about that
anyway, some things aren't meant to last i guess, even after promises of building a life and growing old together
i think he left me because i'm mentally unstable and didnt respond for a long time ( like a week or two because i was omw to go to a psych ward ) and he kept thinking i killed myself which is fair i understand, it's good to take measures for your own mental wellbeing i just wish he said something before he left is all but i know i'm not entitled to anything so it was within his right to leave
for some reason i feel really numb to this ( until i don't. ) which makes me feel insane guilt because i know that is not the way i am supposed to feel especially because he is the only person i felt has really loved me but i can't just force myself to feel something. i feel like i'm an alien in my own body it's like i can't feel any emotions at all anymore, i don't know what's wrong with me

You clearly want to talk to him, anon. Doesn't sound like you're indifferent to it to me.
We all make stupid mistakes. You might need to toughen up and just write out an apology.

I'm admittedly a stubborn and self centered person, and even i've had to swallow my pride and apologize.

If I were in your situation, my apology would go something like:
(This is more vague since I don't you)
"Hey, I know we haven't spoken in a while, and I took some time to do a lot of self reflection and I definitely owe you an apology. Hell, multiple apologies. I've been nothing but a shithead and a source of unecessary stress for you, and for that I deeply apologize.
I understand if you don't forgive me, but I would like to be able to hang out with my best friend again like we used to."

Short, sweet, doesn't go on for too long so more conversation can happen afterward.
Definitely be more specific about what you did to make him ghost you though.
I really recommend not sitting in the chat and re-reading your apology over and over though. I just close the DM and do other things.

There are a few major rules of a decent apology though
>1.) Admit what you did wrong
>2.) Do not try to justify your actions or make excuses, apologize and keep it moving
I can't tell you how many genuine apologies that I see that come across as "I'm sorry that you misunderstood my intentions. If you understood what I was trying to do, you wouldn't be mad." Because they were too interested in saving face than smoothing over what went wrong.
>3.) Do not guilt your target.
Apologies are inherently an emotional thing ofc, but it's infinitely better to get someone to truly accept your apology from the bottom of their heart than it would be to get someone to accept because they'd feel bad for rejecting it.

Sorry for text walling you.
Good luck! I believe in you!

I try so hard every day but my brain fog and constant intrusive thoughts make it impossible to write good research. I used to easily write in half a day what now takes me weeks to produce, and in terms of depth it's honestly useless shit when I compare it to what my colleagues do. It's like I can only access and use the most superficial basic level of knowledge, and only phrase it in clumsy overly complex prose.

I get by and still have good enough insights occasionally that I won't be fired, but I feel like shit all the time. I guess I have this childish wish that someone genuinely realized how hard I work to contribute what little I can and appreciated that I haven't given up, despite being in such a bad place psychologically, just because I love my field and it's important to get these questions right.

I'm reasonably open about my mental health, but I don't think anyone can really get it from the outside on a visceral enough level to feel any kind of appreciation, it ultimately just looks like I'm cutting corners and not that invested. But jesus christ I just try so hard.

It's going to sound lame, but brain fog is a byproduct of both the words you consume and the food.
You might want to take some time off if you can and get to a place without internet. Two weeks alone in a tranquil retreat with some books you enjoy reading- not necessarily deep or challenging stuff.
That and try to eat more eggs and organ meats. If you broke your brain, you can fix it.

Does anyone else relate to this at all? I have "severe mental health issues" and they are real(diagnosed) but I pretend I do not have them even when they do make it hard to function (am on NEETbux for them for example).

My family are (now) very aware that I have problems but they view everything I do that is bad as a result of having mental health issues even if I do something like leave a door open when the AC is on.
I think the reason that I dismiss I have any problems despite having them is because for starters it is another way to hate myself by thinking I am just a horrible person and lazy not mentally ill and the other is that I really would like not to associate myself with the people I see on the internet who make being mentally ill their entire identity.

I was involved in an argument recently with one of them who claimed that my mental illness is making them sick as well yet I do not bitch and scream at them at anyone and just prefer being by myself.
I said I did not even think I had any mental issues and she scoffed at me saying "why can't you work then why do you cut yourself then".
I said that is my normal it is fine I am just miserable but that is ok and I do silly things sometimes.

Am I in denial? I know I am not the same as other people and struggle to function even within a limited capacity but I just feel normal.

i am quite literally the same as a you and i absolutely hate admitting that there's something wrong with me despite being diagnosed in my head i'm normal until people ( my family ) tell me that i am not at all that because i aggressively self harm and i isolate myself ect ect ect but i don't really see the issue with it since i've always been this way i guess or maybe not i can't really remember but i'm normal enough or at least i feel that way
i absolutely don't want to ever admit that there's something wrong with me because i don't want to come off as ( like you said ) those internet people that larp or actually have mental illnesses and make that their entire personality because then people will think that i'm faking ( and then that makes me think well that must mean im actually sick then but i know im just fine )

Don't know how long ago he messaged me, don't want to click on the chat so he knows I've seen it, don't want to talk to him because I'm scared I might lose him again even though I haven't even got him back. I got my first phone at 15 so while I had a great childhood offline I couldn't keep in contact with other friends, and when I met them again in HS I WAS SO HAPPY. I would be the one starting conversations, they texted back for a few days, I kept waiting and waiting but it all eventually died out within a month. BUT WITH HIM WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS ON STEAM FOR 8 YEARS AND I TRIED TO TALK TO HIM 4 YEARS AGO SO WE COULD'VE MESSAGED ME BACK ANYTIME. I know I'm being selfish because I rarely message my other male friend but he actually has so many true friends and he mostly sees me as a failed attempt at getting his first girlfriend.

It's pretty easy when every exam is conducted via computer these days, even for classes on campus. Regardless of the program or set up used for an exam, it isn't too difficult figuring how how it works or how you can very exploit it.

I also thought I was being self-sufficient for never asking the profs for help, but now they have no clue who I am so I can't use them as references. smh why did I choose this major?

Maybe you could do some volunteering before you officially get into the workforce (once vaccines roll out)? I'm a ~minority~ so am planning to really push my ass to get involved with my local scene.

I used to be like you. The only thing that helped me break free was literally posting recklessly and thinking of my blog as my personal gallery, nothing else. Just upload shit, no tags. Don't check to see how many notes anything gets. It'll all be zero notes at first, but just keep doing it with confidence. People will get your vibe, or they won't.
I have some posts with zero notes, some with like 30, some with thousands, and at least one with 10k notes (more if I count my old blog(s) from when I was younger). I don't really know what makes certain posts stand out, but I don't care. Not tagging shit has helped me so much mentally.

Intermittently I just get this pit in my stomach thinking about how easily my bf could be cheating on me without me knowing anything. It's because I used to be very blackpilled, and especially because of a previous horrible relationship in which I gradually noticed more and more signs of my ex lying and being shady, mostly through accidentally seeing stuff on his phone screen. I was young and dumb, so I forgave him a bunch of times even when I knew something was off. Over a few years I got used to the feeling I guess, and was just always waiting for the inevitable next doomsday event.

Now I have this compulsion to try and catch a glimpse of something bad whenever my bf checks something on his phone, and feel an overwhelming dread while doing so because I'm just 100% expecting to notice something that will implode everything. I hate feeling this way again. There's nothing about his behaviour that warrants any concern but the despair I sometimes feel is just so much.

Apart from this he brings out the absolute best in me. We are committed to spending our lives together and he consistently demonstrates how much he cares and wants to support me, and by all accounts we are a great match and just have a lot of fun together. I wish I could enjoy it and feel good waking up in the morning next to him, instead of this stress and fear.

I used to have a really close friend, we hung out almost every day, I met him online but he lived in my neighborhood. A few years ago we drifted apart because some shit went down in my life and we had a short argument and when it had blown over my life was such a mess I didn't reach back out.

A few months ago I reached out to him again because I found his phone number in my DMs from years ago and he was open to meeting up and talking about things, but then he stopped responding when I was in town. I kept trying a few times because I wanted to make up for what came off as me ghosting him. Now, after another 2 months of no response, I sent a meme on a whim and he suddenly responded again, saying that he's sorry he didn't meet up with me and that he was doing pretty well up until "a few months ago" when he relapsed. It was pretty vague but now I'm wondering if me reaching out to him after years of radio silence did something and I may have missed something in the past? Or am I being paranoid? I reached out a few months ago and he said he was doing well until a few months ago and is now doing too poorly to meet. What is the truth

I’m pretty sure I can only take men as personal cows and/or fwbs these days. I simply don’t respect them as people, even though I pretend I do. Right now, I don’t really think I even want a relationship. I only just realised all this because I thought about this one guy who’s attractive but fucked up (his words) not being particularly into me, and noticed that all my reasons for being upset weren’t even personal.
They all linked back to the fear that it’ll be harder to learn his secrets. He’s still dumb enough that he’ll probably bite, but it would have been so much easier if he had latched onto me. I really just want the milk, and I sort of wish he had a blog or diary I could read instead of talking to him directly. 
If all men are garbage, it’s sort of like peeling back a band-aid to find out just how gross they are, especially if they’re hot on the outside. It’s almost the same feeling I get when I read the early life section of serial killers’ Wikipedia articles, or fixate on a piece of media. The ones that are already ugly are just too repulsive on top of everything else, though.
They all get boring and irritating when you figure out their patterns, but initially, it’s fascinating. The only downside is the danger, but I usually ghost before that. I’m paranoid that a lot of therapists and psychs are secretly the same way about their clients, so I avoid them.

We already have ways to create life without direct male involvement, in the future we'll be able to create life without men at all. In the meantime, non-childfree women need to keep dating and having kids with good, attractive males while these men watch on in anger, kill therselves (in minecraft), or troon out. Even if it's still dangerous in many places, now we can divorce, vote, meet freely in groups, have sex without marriage, get abortions, create all-female spaces, and more without being jailed or killed!

I broke up with my bf but I think I still have feelings for him. Maybe I just miss the way he made me feel sometimes. I don't know why I even still think about him. He's a momma's boy and I thought I was okay with it, but as time went on, I realized that that is not my type. What's ironic is the guy I'm talking to now is sort of like him but he's not a femboy with major mommy issues.
In fact I really like this new guy a lot and I hope this relationship goes somewhere, but we'll see. Anyway, my ex and I are still friends and he's still in love with me and believes we'll get back together one day. He wants me to be his mommy gf Cringe., but I don't.

I feel like im losing my main friend group bit by bit - not helped by two of the men in it going full moid over the last few months and causing fractures. It's gradually getting quieter - people are growing older and getting busier.
The only good thing is that the only other woman regulalry in the group seems to be doing better. Her mental health is improving and she's been more creative lately. I worry sometimes that that means she'll get a new - better, and less overwhelmingly male- friend group and leave me alone in this one, and that makes me feel like the asshole.
Another group I've been slowly cultivating over the last few months has turned out to be about 80% really cool people who are fun to hang out with, and then the last one is a fucking angsty gay furry barely out of the fucking embryo and hes always snarky about anything I say or do in the group. I don't know what I did to set him off, but it just constantly feels like he's looking down on me.

Add on top of that, my psych is coming down on me like a ton of shit with a possibly autism diagnosis.
I don't know how to feel about that either. I don't think I'm upset by the idea. I think i'm scared. I think i'm terrified, which is stupid becuase if I AM an autist then surely finding out is a good thing? Knowing means I can find ways to deal with stuff, right?
But im sitting here reading the emails shes sending me and fighting off the gradually rising panic.
I just don't want to be autistic on top of everything else. I can't handle that too.

Since the thread I posted in was deleted, (I assume for promoting mood hate? That or a pedophile reported it.) I'm going to repost it here because I don't have social media. And I was finally able to put to words why I hate pedophiles aside they're gross and horrible people.

I hate pedophiles. I hate how they try to fight for normalcy, I hope they never get it. They are already abundant and all over the internet.
I hate how they deflect arguments with "lol old hag is jealous." No it is not that but the fact that pedophiles are just terrible people.

Anyone who commits acts of pedophilia is truly a selfish person. They don't think of the harm that's being done. They don't think of the child is still a person who will have to grow up with what has happen to them. They don't think of the fact that they caused so much suffering to a innocent soul. They'll deflect it with "they'll just have sex anyway," that not for them to decide. They are causing another person to be brought up in a world of pain and anger. They are selfish because they do not understand or think of their consequences. The world is still so misogynistic that people still defend and accept the perpetrators, give them a slap on the wrist. Other sickos commend them as heros. Saying it's natural. No it's not natural, they are just deluding themselves into a sick fantasy fueled by porn. But I am glad there are so many against them, people are speaking out. People are taking actions against their attackers. They need to be removed from this world. Pedophiles only think of themselves, they do not care for their victims. They don't even see their actions as wrong. They are proud of the harm and pain they cause and they'll even brag about it. That's the problem they don't see their victims as people but pieces of meat that is ment to be used.
That is why I'll never support pedophiles and it sickens me everytime someone gets outted as one. The same argument can be applied to rapist because a lot of them go hand-in-hand.

If you're talking about the pedo thread on /b/, I removed it because it was made when we still allowed new threads to be made to talk about men as a group, before these threads took over /b/ and we consolidated them into the pinkpill and trans generals. It wasn't previously removed because it had been dead for over a year. It suddenly got necro'd and I cleaned it up so that other users on /b/ wouldn't see it as an invitation to make more separate threads about men, as this is still an issue. You're always welcome to discuss these things in the pinpkill thread or vent threads, we just don't allow for new, separate threads to be made just to talk about men. Sorry about that.

I don't understand the "old hag is jealous" argument that pedophiles make, I'm pedobait "barely legal" and mentally ill and still 100% agree with you. Grown men can abuse girls young enough to be their daughters, sometimes not even old enough to legally consent, and they either get no punishment at all or one that's just an inconvenience at worst. A lot of "nomaps" get pitied and babied online because people believe pedophilia is a mental illness just like any other and if you tell them they're sick fucks who deserve to die then you're ableist.

My guess is that you could ask her about her new female friend group and possibly join? Maybe she's tired of the mascoid bullshit too and will get you.

>Knowing means I can find ways to deal with stuff, right?

Pretty much yeah. For me, it helped recognize chimping-out as meltdowns and find their root causes/be able to prevent or minimize the damage, not just blame myself for being a dumb bitch.

The problem is that this is an online friend group - and I feel like she's eventually gonna work up the social courage and mental health to find real life friend groups.
Which would be amazing - don't get me wrong. She's one of my best friends and I'm so hyped to see her doing better.
But that improvement for her is, I think, going to inevitably take her away and I'll be stuck here.
Which is gonna suck, a lot, for me.

When I was a cashier I don't think anything really stuck out to me aside from obese people buying cartloads of junk food.
Generally I tried as much as I could to pretend I wasn't there, and I'd usually forget what I'd just scanned/bagged within like 30 seconds of them walking away from the register.

Relatable. It's hard for me to stop being a shut-in freak when you're basically forced to be one. Wishing you luck though, the restrictions are going down in most places so you could possibly meet irl friends too?

Used to struggle with that but then I realized they don't care about your purchases as much as how you and their boss treats them.
When a cashier is rude to me I avoid going to that shop for a week or more instead of arguing back/reporting though.

but i just try to suck it up and see the good in things. i have two kittens i love, freedom, a new state to explore…the ability to focus on college without working (the money stress is still here though so i may eventually find a job) i dont know sometimes its nice, but sometimes i feel like a prisoner and his family offers to help me with things like practicing more for my license then gets mad that neither of us have it but wont go through with helping us so its upsetting…whatever. this is the real world i guess. at least ill get to visit my mom every couple of months for doctor appointments and practice driving then.

I was really starting to make some actual progress, you know? I wasn't so terrified of the train, of random strangers. I was doing better buying stuff on my own, I was less petrified of phone calls.

It’s fine being a kv in your 20s and it’s especially so hard to meet people during a pandemic- there’s probably a lot of other people in a similar situation like yourself rn.

Since even the most socially-adapted normie was forced to stay home for an extended period of time, I assume that they are starting to get used to being alone so I think they also would be uncomfortable being with a lot of strangers all of a sudden. A matter of habit, pretty much.

Also, what helped you get through when you took a train for the first time? Was it thinking about finally meeting your partner, listening to music, or such? Maybe it could also help you this time.

Where I live, there wasn't a lockdown so we can go outside but in masks and stuff (and i hope we get to wear a mask after covid ends bc face bad).

I'm confused about my sexuality and have been for a long time and don't really know where to vent it.

Basically ever since puberty and even before I was always only attracted to women, and my childhood experiences match up pretty well with what I've seen lesbians describe. I legitimately thought other girls were just pretending to like men to seem mature until I was in high school, and it was a shock to me when I realized my best friend was attracted to her boyfriend. I admitted to myself I liked women at 13, and within a year I accepted that I was lesbian after trying very hard to prove to myself that I had any attraction to men at all and coming up with nothing. If you're attracted to a sex it shouldn't be that confusing to figure it out right? It never was for me with women, once I realized it there was instant acceptance.

Fast-forward several years of considering myself lesbian and living as one, and I met my now-bf. We started as online friends so I kind of fell for him without having to deal with the physical reality that he was male, but once I did fall for him and we got together irl I found that I was able to enjoy being with him sexually. Clearly I'm not 100% lesbian, so cue a second round of intense questioning. The thing is I still feel the same about men who aren't my boyfriend as I always did. I've had a lot of obsessive thoughts and sometimes I compulsively check out every man I see and try to imagine if I could have sex with him, or search up pics of men who are supposed to be "attractive." When I do this after awhile I start to get physically aroused (like just in my gentials, not to be gross) from thinking so hard about sex and sexualizing male bodies so much, but in my mind I feel uncomfortable and disgusted and not at all appealed to or turned on. But I can only get into imagining sex with men if it's my boyfriend or a faceless disembodied shadow-man (even this one is kind of boring), if I force myself to imagine any other specific guy I feel really uncomfortable and like I'm mentally raping myself.

I feel like since I enjoy my boyfriend and can somewhat sexually enjoy the concept of "male" now it means I must be more attracted to men than this and I'm just repressed or something, but I don't know how to "let go" when it comes to this because it feels really gross and wrong. I don't have any sexual abuse history or anything, but I've never experienced "arousal" for a man other than my boyfriend that didn't feel really forced and gross and wrong. I don't know if it's just me and weird hangups or if I sexuality is just fucked up for some reason. It probably doesn't really matter but I keep going back to this and looking for an "answer" to how attracted to men I really am and I can't find it.

Sorry for this giant dump.

Anonymous 52778

I considered myself lesbian throughout high school and dated another girl and was vaguely into girls. I had a similar feeling as you towards men, where I would look at the sort of men other women found attractive and just had a strong "NO" reaction to them, and I don't find myself lusting after random attractive men or enjoying sexual fantasies unless I'm imagining my boyfriend. The only time I ever see random men on the street and have a sexual reaction is if it's someone with a body type or face similar to my boyfriend's.

I don't think you should feel like you have to want to fuck any random attractive man to be attracted to men. I am disgusted at the thought of having sex with most men (not because they're men, but because the concept of sex with random men is repulsive), but with my boyfriend I have an extremely strong reaction where I very much want to have sex with him. As long as you are into the idea of sex with your boyfriend, I don't think you should concern yourself too much with the idea of sex with men in general.

Though for me I don't think I was ever truly a lesbian. While I did have feelings for the girl I dated, and the idea of sex with her wasn't repugnant (we never actually got to the point of having sex), and I can recognize the type of woman I would be into if I had continued thinking I was lesbian, I'm not preoccupied with my sexuality at all. I am not at all sexually attracted to women the way I am to men. My attraction to women was largely a comfort thing, I believe; it's easier and simpler and a lot less scary, which was nice for me since I struggled socially a lot and the lesbians at my school were very kind. But I want to be a wife to a husband and have his children and be able to rely on his manly strength or however one might phrase it, so "sexuality" isn't really a question for me, even if I can see a woman and think, "she's cute, I'd have dated her." I will say, though, that the extreme difference in my sexual reactions to male and female body parts made the answer pretty clear in the end, since there's no question that I like men, and whether or to what extent I like women is irrelevant, considering my goals.

I don't know if my anecdote is helpful to you at all, but I could sort of relate, so I thought I'd share. I think as long as you love your boyfriend, or any other people you might date in the future, sexuality as a concept and element of your identity is better treated as secondary. You could start splitting hairs and get into the dual attraction model or whatever other nonsense, but that sort of thinking is destructive in my experience, and just a way for people to rationalize their confusion.

What matters is the quality of our love, not whether we defined it rigorously enough.

Anonymous 52779

I think "homoflexible" may be the term that fits for you? But honestly, if I were you, I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's fine if you're into women for the most part, but just happened to like one guy for whatever reason.

Anonymous 52780

Thanks for responding anon, I could relate to a lot of your experience. I feel pretty much the same about men as you describe with not lusting after random men etc and only really having reactions to men who remind me of him. Sometimes I can't tell whether it's that I'm not into men in general or just disgusted by the idea of casual sex with them, or maybe kind of both. I was also pretty awkward in school and on some level I might have felt intimidated or uncomfortable with the prospect of a male/female relationships back then too. There weren't so many lesbians at my school either, so identifying as lesbian allowed me to feel more safe from anything that was intimidating.

In my case I'm pretty sure I am actually attracted to women though. Attraction came on pretty intensely when puberty started and was pretty hard to deny. I never got as far as sex with another girl either so I can't say for sure , but I had pretty intense crushes on other girls and kissing and touching them felt electrifying. I feel more detached from my "lesbian side" since I've been with my bf, but occasionally I feel a visceral reaction to an attractive woman I see and remember that it's still there, just kind of ignored or relegated to fantasies these days. The sexual energy you feel with a woman vs a man is totally different to me and I can't say I like one better than the other, they're just really different. Sometimes I think that being attracted to women feels more "innate" to me and hetero is something I learned to get into later on but I'm not really sure. I'm not really bothered by any of this though since my relationship makes me happy

You're definitely right that it's not healthy to obsess like this, but every so often my anxiety over the sexual confusion drives me back to the same thoughts. I've kind of accepted sexuality is complex and I'll never really resolve this or be able to perfectly rationalize it though. I agree with you fully and thank you for your kind words, it feels better to hear someone can relate somewhat.

Thanks anon, you're totally right.

It's so stupid man.

ANd yeah, it's kinda sad that lots of normal people are now dealing with social issues and depression, so suddenly people are starting to take it seriously.
Where the fuck was this attempted understanding years ago man.
That and when they all get over it quickly enough since it's just a case of habit, they're gonna go right back to looking down on people who cant just 'get over it'.
And that kills me.

Seconding that other anon - that sounds like homoflexible.
Pretty much sounds like you developed feelings long before the reality was an issue, and then the reality wasnt an issue.
Which honestly is really quite sweet and I'm low key happy for you.
You don't have to be attracted to all men just becuase you like this one, though - at the very most youre like a 5.999999999999 on the scale bisexual, and this just happens to be your one exception.

I genuinely hope that won't be the case, at least not for the most people since everyone would have the more or less same experience now. The asshole normies will stay assholes, but there's hope for the common ones I think.

im talking to this one guy who seems like pretty much everything ive ever wanted in a guy (so far) and i can see hes kinda interested too
id like to be in a relationship with him but my self esteem is literally so fucking low and i think thatd prevent me from having a healthy one
hes never seen a pic of me, ive never seen how he looks like either. weve just been chatting about whatever, personal life stuff and the like, and when he doesnt message me i feel so lonely and im usually annoyed from peoples texts.
i dont really know how to talk to him without sounding too obsessive, but i really want to get closer to him and learn more about him. couldnt even stalk him if i wanted to because hes a mostly no social media kinda guy, and aside from discord/telegram i dont have any of his contacts.
he lives relatively close too and id like to meet him but im like a 2/10 at best though i wouldnt care about his appearance as long as he has good hygiene (seems like he does)
hes also the first guy ive ever told about how much of a sperg i actually am under all my masking, because telling to a stranger seemed a good way to vent without getting in trouble, but now that weve talked more and seeing that he accepts/doesnt mind my autism i really am growing more attached to him. im pretty sure i have bpd too, and im usually the toxic one in relationships (usually long distance so still a virgin) so while i want to date him, on the other hand, i dont want him to go through my mental instability…
i wish it was all easier. i wish i was at least good looking so that guys wouldnt drop me as soon as they find out im mentally broken too

I agree with the other response here, seems like there’s a pretty good chance a guy on the internet would probably be into you.

A lot of girls surfing the net without a single goal in mind who end up catching feelings for a guy tend to attract guys who do the same thing. If you feel insecure about yourself for whatever reason, just remember that he likely feels the same way about himself. The same groups of people tend to be on one medium and the internet is definitely the place for people who aren’t the most secure about themselves. I think it’ll be fine. Especially if he lives somewhat close to you, what’s the harm in trying to setup a coffee date?

So like quite a few people on this site, I'm in my 20s and have never had a boyfriend or an intimate relationship with a guy. It doesn't really bother me because I don't mind being alone and have my own life, but I think in theory it would be nice to feel attracted to someone and share the sort of intimate emotional connection that comes with a relationship. My issue is that when I see the relationships that my friends are in it really makes my skin crawl trying to imagine myself in the same position as them. Like, specifically how I see their boyfriends always cooking for them on Instagram or in the background when we videocall, checking in on them, using petnames, constant pda and touching, watching all the same shows and movies together, how they can't be apart for more than a few hours, etc. I'm happy that my friends have boyfriends who genuinely enjoy taking care of them (and no shame to anyone who wants to be in a relationship like that!), but imagining myself in their position makes me feel so disgusted. Is there something wrong with me for feeling this way? I don't want someone cooking for me, always touching me and participating in everything I do. I think it would feel so demeaning and smothering to be in that position- like they don't even see as my own person anymore just a girlfriend. 

I was venting about this to a close friend of mine and she said that it sounds like I'd probably be happier living my life as I am now and that I'm probably not the type of person who fits being in a relationship. Maybe she's right, but somehow when she puts it that way it sounds so depressing and bleak like there's something fundamentally wrong with me. Ergh, but I can't help wondering if she's right and I only enjoy my hypothetical fantasy bfs but couldn't actually have a real relationship.

Anonymous 52951

A lot of guys don't like to cook, traditionally women would do the cooking, so that shouldn't be an issue.
As for the pda and doing stuff together: different guys are affectionate to different degrees. Not all couples engage in pda either, if you prefer to only do certain things in private, just make the clear to whomever you date.
Also, the degree to which you want to spend time with the other person may fluctuate once you actually enter a relationship. A lot of things might seem strange to you just cuz you haven't been in love with a real person like your friends have. I wouldn't put your desires in a box, since they can easily change. If you do enter a relationship and then find it's not for you, that's fine too though.

I also don't like to be smothered, but you might also have some issues with the idea of being loved due to self-esteem issues or trauma you might have (kinda speaking for myself here).

Thought I finally repressed memories of my old friends a while back. One memory randomly popped into my mind and now my heart aches for them both even though we were all kind of toxic to each other.

>we all skip school together

>we go to one of friend's house
>we walk to a park nearby
>it's a cold and snowy day
>doesn't stop us
>we get on playground
>we take turns spinning each other on this solo spinny toy
>it's finally my turn
>spinning so fast I'm screaming and laughing
>I get so dizzy I fall off
>I'm giggling and laying on my back with my eyes squeezed shut
>still feel dizzy
>look up
>see my two friends looking down at me and laughing too
>they help me up
>we walk down to a convivence store
>we get our favorite candy
>head back to friend's house
>all is good that day

man i hate my ex (online bf) so much and to think of the time I wasted over him which I could have utilised in prepping for my exams makes me crazy. AHH why do we regret things so late, why didn't I know him better before committing. I hate myself more than I hate him because I still cant fucking stop thinking about him and still have hopes that maybe, just maybe he might message me again asking me to get back together.
i wanna dieeee

>Why? Do you fear her being not the same person anymore?

Oh no, not at all.
It's more a generalised fear that this time we see each other, she'll realise that I'm actually ugly and awful and so on.
Whole laundry list of issues here man.
She could do so much better than me it isn't even funny.

Yeah I know what you mean on the music though.
It's usually fine since Im usually travelling middle of the day, busy trains.
But even when it's midnight and there's no one around music is still my cope method.
Every time I feel pretty dumb for it but without it I cant deal with the journey.

Thanks for the words of advice! It makes sense that not everyone is the same and I could probably find someone who isn't like what my friends have if I actually tried. I think most of my friends have been dating their bfs for about 1-2 years. I don't know if that counts as a new-ish relationship or not.

AI do wonder if maybe I have some sort of underlying issues. Everything you both said is very reasonable to me and my friends have also told me that people tend to change once they're actually in a relationship and what they want changes too. For some reason, I just have a very strong aversion to ending up like that. I think it might be a dependence issue, but I also could be overthinking it. Anyway, I appreciate you nonnies for hearing me out.

>this time we see each other, she'll realise that I'm actually ugly and awful and so on
If that was the case, wouldn't she realize it way sooner? People usually can tell pretty from ugly at first glance I suppose.
>She could do so much better than me
But it's pretty much her own choice to stay with you and it's not really hurting anyone, so it's good.

About the music: I do the same, can't stand going outside without my headphones at all.
In public places I don't take them off. Hearing other people's voices, the muzak if I'm in a shopping mall, etc - it's all just too much for me, I panic and can't concentrate on anything. That's why going to public places with someone else is hell - I can't concentrate on whatever that person is saying.
Sensory overload, pretty much, that's why blocking out one sense by blasting some filthy noise through my headphones at max volume helps tremendously.
I don't think you're or anyone is dumb for doing that.
Personally, I do take them off sometimes, but only if I'm in a forest or near a river or like that.
On public transit it's just so much better to listen to music instead of not listening to it no matter how many people are around.

Not only have I been drawing variations of Edzilla at least once a decade, but they’ve all been combos of other monsters:
In 2008 it was basically a combination of Edzilla and Cloverfield.
In 2013 a combination of Eddzilla, Eddy’s brother and Envy’s true form from fma (but with Jawbreakers instead of people and at least a hundred times bigger).
This year was Shin Edzilla.

I love having small breasts so much and I feel weird about it. They're big enough to exist at all and small enough to never inconvenience me in any way, I hope they never get bigger, I'm actually worried about it because I've read about it happening to women even late into their 20s and 30s. I don't get why anyone would want to have big breasts other than beauty standards that have been impressed in them to make them feel bad about themselves.

I can relate. Confidence helps a lot.
So does dressing in a slightly more "mature" and "classic" way. You don't wanna go too classic/conservative though, or you risk looking like a 13 year old who was dressed by their boomer grandma.
Keep your look a little bit dark and edgy, but not teenage edgelord level, with some classic elements such as blazers, and black dress pants. Stick to high quality or vintage items, limit fast-fashion items.
Also, put on a bit of muscle and wear tall shoes.

As someone who suffered from severe cystic acne as a teen (the only reason I don’t now is bc of meds), it upsets me that there is absolutely no representation in any media of people with acne. Every time I would watch or see a piece of media, I would just feel depressed, insecure, and isolated. The only “representation” would be “nerd” or “ugly” characters who had acne and that was literally it. It would’ve helped so much as a young teenage girl if I had seen ANYONE like me. I felt so alone.

just recalled an old "friend" from high-school. he was an underclassman (maybe by a year?) and we'd always talk together while waiting for the buses (neither of us could drive). i was super awkward and he was going through his "tryhard fuckboy" stage but we got along pretty okay despite that.

i was also the class loser.

anyway i forgot to say "bye" to dude on my last day of school. don't remember his name but i'm sad about this for whatever reason. i think i remember meeting his eyes from the bus but he looked away super fast.

idk he was never as evil to me as some of the other dudes were, so i appreciated his presence even if he was irritating at times.

I wish I could be happy in a relationship. Guys are beautiful to me both in their appearance and emotional complexity but my interest just evaporates the second I'm held by one in an explicitly romantic context. I don't want to be someone's girlfriend. I want a cute big brother type friend I can cuddle and lean into for emotional support but I don't like kissing people and I hate sex. I did have a male friend like that once, I was living in a homeless hostel a couple streets down and he would let me chill in his apartment and he would sit up all night with me and talk about stuff and play games and god he had the prettiest smile and I wanted to cuddle him so bad but not like, outright date him. I don't know him any more but I miss him. He caught me in the street maybe a year ago and it was awful because I had a bunch of self-inflicted injuries healing on my face and I felt fucking ashamed. He asked me what was up and I just laughed and said "oh the usual!" and he tilted his head in confusion at me and just I noped the fuck out of there.

Obviously I don't know your circumstances but as for getting rejected I would say the value of life isn't derived from your relationships with others.
Generally speaking people who contemplate suicide as a "real" option are highly self-aware and as such are more than capable of leading a life worth living. I am sure no one sensible would consider you anything like vermin.
Introspect, dedicate yourself to something, and recognize that your life is worth preserving if only by virtue of being a contemplative individual who does no harm.

If you want to take it that far, you could report it as a theft to the police. You wouldn't have to name your sister, but you could just claim you don't know who did it and the police might be able to have the bank watch the cards for transactions instead of canceling them. You might have a chance at catching her red-handed on store surveillance or using your card on her Amazon account or something.

>What do you guys do when you're in a suicidal panic to calm yourself down?
I self harm. It's genuinely the only thing that helps.

I've been repeatedly attempting to hang myself since age 7 and I've given myself some level of brain damage because of it (I've inexplicably fallen unconscious out of nowhere on several occasions) and I know it's vital for my health that I do not attempt suicide anymore under ANY circumstances. Yet I still feel suicidal, so to this end, a combination of
A. Cutting and,
B. Screaming
Is the only thing that expels enough emotion from my body in order for me to continue surviving. Even when living in homeless hostels I would go out into the street in the dead of night in my pajamas and dressing gown and break glass jars in the street and collect the shards so I would have access to a bladed edge. It is the only tool I can utilize that genuinely helps. Alcohol just puts me in a stupor and costs money. Self harm is the only thing that kills the panic. I also believe some study learned that the sight of blood itself tends to have a calming effect on the self harmer. I don't cut because I hate myself. I like myself, I just do it because tangible physical pain overrides the messy, formless pain in my head.

I realise what I have just written is essentially an advertisement or endorsement of self harm. That is not what I intend. Please do not cut yourself unless you are quite literally in-front of a noose and have no other options.
