>tfw girl i'm dating wants to introduce me to her friends
I have been able to keep my autism in check previously with her thanks to alcohol but there will be no drinking here and I will be stone cold sober
>tfw my autism will be unleashed for all to see
y-you didn't prepare me for this /fit/
I won't be for long if I can't pull it together and not act like a massive faggot for this thing, pls give advice
I've lost count of all the potential long term relationships I've had to immediately shut down just to avoid having my girl see what my social life looked like. I've pretty much accepted I won't be able to start something serious at least until my parents die.
Nootropics are otc herbal shit mainly, not something that'll make you a degenerate. Unless you're talking about reddit, which makes you really autistic for not wanting to use an info source.
Not really true; and I'm the poster supporting nootropics.
Most aren't herbal. The best nootropics are Russian pharmaceuticals (which have no regulation here in the west) that are used for things like seizures, memory enhancement, head trauma, etc. Like Semax and a lot of Racetams. I'd say they're drugs IMO, but the line between drug and supplement is kind of blurry. I consider alcohol, caffeine and ephedrine to also be drugs *tips fedora*.
>best are Russian pharmas
No kidding, but how often do you come across that (burgerland)
>caffeine, alcohol, ephedrine are drugs
Sure by definition, but alcohol is for degenerates and ephedrine could never be considered anything else. Caffeine is so stupidly common with supplements anymore, it's almost a necessary crutch.
i mean if you want to be literal about things ofc alcohol and coffee are drugs , i doubt you would find many that would think ephedrine isn't a drug though - it hit me with euphoria everytime i tried it - definately drug
Take 4 grams of piracetam. It'll hit you like a hammer in the head the first time, you'll feel euphoric (*tips) and you'll be a bit overwhelmed by your thoughts, there's going to be a multitude of them racing through your head making a kind of fog, but this goes away soon enough.
Regardless, it'll make you look like a charismatic normie. For me, the words just flow out of me and I make people laugh. It's also how I got some of my first dates when I was a complete sperglord. It's cheap as fuck, do eet.
You're not really gonna come across any good nootropics in burgerland without ordering online, except caffeine + L-theanine, ephedrine.. alcohol.. amphetamines, coke.. nothing "proper". It'll all be mail order regardless.
Stay quiet, laugh at jokes, just answer questions. As more social opportunities open up test your own waters until you don't have to think about it as much anymore. Try not to obsess about stuff like where your hands are too much.
Drink 3-5 beers before you go. Not enough to get drunk but enough to loosen you up so by the time they're wearing off you've established some level of comfort.
I basically have to drink before I do anything just to make it tolerable. Maybe pack a maintenance flask just in case. Everyone loves the guy with a flask.
At least you are into books. If you are working out or have a club you are into or something you are solid.
No matter what, do not discuss vidya or /tg/ shit and you will be fine.
Where to get it in Europe? Central Europe. All google gives me is shitty pages translated to my language from english.
Also ebay shows only powder version + big shipping costs.
sorry m8 just the way it is
I live in Rural canada and it sometimes cost more to ship stuff than the actual product costs
And your only choice will probably be powder, pills will cost more. If you cant weigh it you can dissolve a pre weighed amount in water/alcohol and measure it by volume.
just keep making jokes about where the booze is at whenever their is an awkward moment of silence or you dont know what to say
>hey anon, <some random question that you don't want to answer>
>haha, where's the booze at? am i right? haha. good stuff.
works every time
Just be confident and remember regardless what anyone says you're fucking her.
It doesn't matter if they're not impressed. The fact she chose you to fuck her brains out already puts you above most of her friends.
what the fuck
imagine op repeat this shit mantra 15 times during the meeting.
>h-h-haha wh-wheres the booze
op doesn't even need to initiate the conversation. if it gets quiet then so be it, someone else can pick it up if op truly is a raging autist
I'm 32 and I just started dating a 22 yo. There are definitely huge gaps in generational knowledge and lifestyle.
I'm scared that she'll ask me to hang out with her friends or meet her parents (who she still lives with in an apartment).
Same here. I could never bring myself to have my girlfriends meet my family, even after they made me have dinner with theirs, or meet them on some other occasion. As you can imagine, things didn't end well.
My friends are nice people, but I'm absolutely sure any girl would dump me on the spot should she meet them.
>there will be no drinking here
not to be the devil in your shoulder, but that is fairly easy to fix... At leastr that's what I would do. DO some shots beforehand, maybe bring a flask for emergencies.
Mouthwash works just as well and you can just say you like having really fresh breath.
You'll honestly be fine
>Make small talk; ask questions as opposed to asking questions
>Keep answered open ended
You know, things can suck sometimes. I hate presentations. Or, at least the feeling before. But after two minutes, I relax into it, and it feels far more comfortable.
You overthink it. Just be comfortable, maintain eye contact, and smile. You'll be fine anon. Good luck!
I've always been a huge sperg autist in social gatherings who sits quiet and never says a word and one day I realised I wouldn't be able to change it so I started working on my presence more than words I say.
It takes some time in front of the mirror to find a good facial expression that says "I'm quiet becaues I don't give a shit about what's going on here" instead of the default autistic expression "I'm quiet because I'm a shy autist, please don't ask me why I'm not talking".
You can see in almost every social gathering there's a guy who is less loud than the others. The difference is his presence, if you show you're okay with it and you're just not interested in the current discussion or you're a turbo autist and don't wanna be there.
I'd be more worried about her meeting my friends t.b.h.
.My best friend lives across the country because navy. And my only other friend is cool, but he recently turned into a jesus freak. He doesn't go around preaching stuff, but he brings up bible shit at least once every time I hang out. My other acquaintance is a spergy perv
>Alcohol on a regular basis
>Gonna make it
Pick 0 OP
>tfw skinny manlet but not autistic and still have a gf
