I'm looking for deep and thought provoking books about isolation and loneliness.
Honestly, one of the most brutal and honest looks at isolation and loneliness.
god fucking damnit.
I know penguin is considered worst but I thought this would be an exception.
FML. I've been trying to find out the best recommendation for the Book of Disquiet for about a week now.
the protector by larry niven
the book is not about this. it's about a man reflecting on the end of his life. common misconception that you would understand if you didnt flick past the forward.
not about loneliness. the existential search for meaning is completely unrelated.
this. she's one of those nutjobs who try to fix someone else with all the shit they learnt from a psychologist because it didnt work on them. literally a nutjob chanting memes. only its a horrible codependent relationship because shes this borderline pd cunt willing to spread her legs for this complete whackjob schizophrenic obsessed with conspiracies. autist tier anime.
This actually kinda happened to me.
>lonely depressed college student
>pretty much just played league of legends 8 hours a day when out of class
>This 10/10 asian girl girl I play LoL with over the internet randomly showed up to my dorm one day unannounced
>her high school sweetheart went to the same school as me so she decided to drop by I guess
>We spend the whole day hanging out
>over the next few weeks she would randomly drive an hour to my school to just hang out with me, one on one
>she brings me to parties, I start to smoke weed and drink booze for the first time
>I start to become more social, stop being a total neet
>we get emotionally close, we talk about depression and other personal issues we both have
>This whole time I've only seen her boyfriend once or twice briefly, we're just friends
>I start to develop crush but know it will never because of her boyfriend situation, decide not to do anything about it and just enjoy the companionship
>she gets married to said boyfriend, moves 5 states away
>haven't seen or heard from her since
At the time I was just kind of bewildered that real life turned into Welcome the NHK. The first few months after she left were kinda rough, but I got over it. On the plus side her presence allowed me to grow out of my nerdy, naive socially inept high schooler phase into a more normalized stoner guy and I have my own partner now
