>we talked for a bit afterwards.
So when you see people when you are walking down the street, do you just blankly stare at them as you walk by? Please don't tell me you avoid looking at them even if you know they are looking at you and, just pretend they aren't there.
Where I live, it's not so much a smile as it is a polite quick half-smile as a recognition of presence while passing by someone, even if it's a stranger. It's just a thing almost literally everyone does where I live, but the etiquitte differs even by state, assuming you live in the US.
It's just called being nice. I only smile at people, and if they smile back, it means they are polite. If they actually say,"good morning" or "hi, how are you?" then I feel flattered and it honestly makes my day. Make someone's day, anon. Turn the other cheek. It makes me sad when I give someone a big grin and they respond by pretending I'm not there.
You can feel affection towards chinese cartoon characters, right? They don't exist, therefore they are whatever you want them to be. You can project whatever kind of feelings you want into them, and they will give them back, because you want them to, like a child playing with a teddy bear or barbie or something. Why can't I treat people I see on the street the same way? I will never talk to them again, they are passing faces, walking through a different world that I will never know nor understand. They may as well not even be sentient! It's almost like I can project whatever kinds of feelings I want into them and I will receive them back! Why would you not take advantage of this? We know we're pretending, both me and the people on the street, but we don't care, because we like to feel positive feelings, just like all of the anons on this board know that they are just playing pretend, they don't care because it makes them happy. Do you not like positive feelings, anon? BECAUSE I AM YOUR BEST FRIEND WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT YOU FUCK
Hatred is the greatest source of energy though you could have. It's perfect, because it will not stop nor wane until something undesirable disappears from existence. The key lies in being able to harness it into achieving the things you want, otherwise it could destroy you.
not even him, but people like you make me sick.
You can't even begin to understand the level of joy I felt when Koito was confirmed shit so early into the show. Great episode.
A lot of self loathing on this thread. Swing by /adv/ and let out your troubles to a person who is willing to lend an ear or just keep living the miserable existence you call your life, slowly dying inside.
Regarding the OP, I had this happen to me and I never saw the girl in my high school ever again.
