>How's it goin'?
Why do normies insist on asking this when the only socially acceptable answer is "good", and we both know I'm lying?
Because smalltalk is an important part of social interaction, which helps to build rapport and comfort.
Learn social skills, learn how to play the game, maybe then you'll get to say 'good' and mean it.
Because empty social signals make their tiny normiebrains feel at peace and help them forget the fundamental emptiness of their impoverished mental lives.
Tell them how it's really goin' and savor the horror on their cowlike faces.
>Why do normies insist on asking this when the only socially acceptable answer is "good",
if you're a certain kind of friend, it's a chance to (humble)brag about the shit you have going on in your life which is totally bangin and deffo not hollow distractions from constant misery
and then they (humble)brag about their shit and feel like they have successful friends and that their life isn't a pathetic egoistic farce, and hopefully they helped you feel the same, and you can get on with your lives
>Normie gets mad for no reason
Why would you care if I don't respond? The only reason to get mad is if the question somehow mattered to someone. It doesn't, so you shouldn't care.
i'm saying, if i said how's it going to you and you said nothing i would be be like wow, that's really something! i josh you not
