r9k is funny. We have everything from angsty teenagers to middle-aged kisskless virgins living in their parents' basements, to successful working people who just can't seem to function as well as they would like.
I'm a mix of those three categories, being a medically disabled 24 year old with qualifications to get numerous jobs. I have had girlfriends. I have attended - and run - parties. I've been somewhat chad-like, sometimes courting several women at once, though still a robot, because I'll make the full move despite having done everything short of it. I have hopes and ambitions; things I know most people here lack. My ultimate life goals put me above most of the normal population, but my ability to chase them is below that of many robots.
I keep going here at least once every few days, for an hour or so, because...why keep doing things anymore? None of this shit is real. Some of you guys will graduate from here and live successful lives. Others will stay here forever, wasting away or at least achieving nothing; their life achievement will be the fact that they filled a spot on the internet, posting and reading things so that others could figure their lives out. They still had purpose, but maybe not meaning, in their lives. I've seen suicide threads and posted in them, ending them; idk if I just simultaneously ended dozens of lives, or made them stop to reconsider. It's impossible to know.
I had no purpose in making this thread. Just to idk, stimulate those robotic processes, maybe get some of you to reflexively troll me with shit negative posts. More likely than not, this single post will hit the last page without a single reply, and if there are replies, they will be hating on me for something that doesn't actually affect them at all.
I forgot that /b/ leaks into here quite a bit.
Chase your dreams
yeah, I usually lurk on /b but not often, is r9k that different?
I used to post in a forum for people with social phobia, and they were pretty much like here, loosers competing to see who was worst
Well duh, it's where everything comes out.
Chads: Guys who get a lot of women with not a lot of work because they are naturally attractive and are willing/able to tell women the bullshit that keeps them interested despite Chad being overall, a total douchebag.
Robots: Teenage to middle aged guys who can't get the girl because they're crippled somehow. Emotionally, physically, mentally, whatever. They might know a few women, and there might actually be existing tension, but unless the woman makes the move, nothing is going to happen.
There is no hard wall in between robots and chads. Pretty much the ONLY difference is that one of them gets more women. This is what I have gathered from my ~7 years on /b/ and /r9k/ now.
I have that pic saved :) one of many that keeps me going (pic related).
why thank you :3
I honestly think the only real difference between "Chad" and most Robots is that Chad has less self-consciousness. He can just act, and not worry about it, while we overthink and agonize over everything.
That's a good way of putting it. I agonize a lot of the time, but every time I've been successful with a girl, it's when I drop the agonizing and just tell them what I feel. Sometimes - most of the time - they hear my feelings and think I'm a pansy fuck. Then there are the rare few who don't...and those are the ones I've gotten with.
I genuinely think this is the most fascinating place on the Internet. I agree with most of what you've said OP.
I won't go into much detail about my own personal life but I can freely admit that I'm not a true Robot (though I can remember 4chan's 2006 birthday which is a total trip for me now that it's the current year). For that reason I tend to avoid posting here but I occasionally chime in when I think I can be funny or help a bro out. I fucking grew up here. I feel more loyalty to you fucks than I do to my countrymen or anyone else.
It's fucking weird, too.
There are NEETs. There are middle schoolers. There are 40 year old men with loving families. There are professionals. There are doctors, lawyers, engineers, nurses, even fucking retired people. There are people from every half-developed country on Earth here and it blows my fucking mind. From Qatar to Jamaica to some shitty town in Canada all the way back again and in every other direction.
There are famous people here that come just to blend in for once and forget about their role in the world.
We've got school shooters and probably jihadists too.
There is nowhere else like this and I think people should cherish it while it's still around. I'll quietly remember it when my grandkids have to go get their 'Internet Licenses' in the future and ask me about my time in the wild west of the internet. I won't say everything, though.
I think you guys aren't far from the target. A huge difference between 'Chads' and Robots is that Chad doesn't care as much about self-consciousness and things relating to women, but this often bleeds over into other aspects of personality as well so they aren't 'pansy fucks' at all either.
>stimulate those robotic processes
This anon fucking understands!
Thanks for reminding me that there are other people who understand and experienced what 4chan was and was meant to be like before the media attention fucked this place over with an influx of shit cunts
It's interesting being able to.experience all these different people in such a raw and uncensored/unforgiving way. I agree dude as shitty as this place is I fucking love it and will carry it with me the rest of my life regardless if it exist or not.
>I have had girlfriends. I have attended - and run - parties. I've been somewhat chad-like, sometimes courting several women at once, though still a robot
You're not a robot. No matter how hard you want to be a part of our sicret club, you can't be a robot when you're this successful and not a virgin.
apparently you are successful enough to support for yourself and you are attractive enough for others to have sex and relationship with you, fuck off, you're not a robot.
