Hello /adv/, would like some insight. While i am not a person who can say ''i have no friends''(because i have quite a few) i am constalty suffering from the fact that i may depend on them too much.
I am the one who always calls the majority of them to do something, the one who has to organize things and i get pissed because a lot of them arrive like 4 hours late to the event or something like that.
tl dr; i am pissed with a lot of friends over these things. Is this normal?
I want to make new friends, can you guys recommend places to do so? My hobbies are Comic books, cinema and books. I plan to start doing martial arts soon. Problem is, i find the majority of these fanbases just insufferable.
I want to make new friends as well, and I get what you mean by finding the majority of the fanbases you mentioned insufferable. I don't have many friends, though, and I rarely set up any meetings with them. At best, I send them a text every two weeks tops.
I'm into anime and manga. The genres I enjoy the most are, despite a bunch of generic series being fun to watch, far from your traditional action packed shounen, which is what the majority of anime/manga fans are into where I live.
Bookstores where I get manga from should be good places to make friends of at least acquaintances. Maybe look out for someone taking a look at what you think is interesting and work out recommendations for them based on what they've read. Sad part of this method is I never once saw someone taking a look at any of the things I'm into, so I just end up making acquaintances online.
It just becomes a "this and this are pretty nice, you might like them"-"you're right, this is awesome! thanks" relationship.
I don't know what to tell you, mate. Maybe try to make friends outside of your interests. If they're comfortable around you in your "comic book nerd" mode, and you're comfortable with whatever they're into, it will be way better than flinging shit at your buddy for saying he likes Superman's attire.
