Ironically, /r9k/ gave me hope. Though I'm a 21 year old autistic, homely KV, I have hope for the future now that I realize that without relationships and societal obligations, I'm free to do as I like. Perhaps I'll never find love. But that's ok.
I've been using 4chan for long enough that I feel it's become a significant part of my life.
The anons of 4chan have given me something comparable to social interaction, and in some cases even good friendship. I'm capable of sharing feels, and understanding the emotions of others I would have otherwise never even considered. I can argue about politics, or post pictures of trains, I can masturbate and share pornography interests. I can have everything from mindless shitposting to legitimate serious discussion.
I also feel like my opinions and understanding of the world have since become based more in observation and fact, thanks to the fact that I can freely get called out on bullshit. Any argument holds the same ground, since we're all on the same anonymous level, and I believe this form of open discussion is one of the best ways to communicate with like and unlike minded people in an informal environment.
I have a better understanding of international issues, thanks to being able to talk unrestricted to complete strangers on the other side of the world, and read in depth and personal discussions about things I know absolutely nothing about.
Thanks to this connectivity as well, I've been able to develop my interests in film, music, anime, art, literature, hobbies, history, and anything else I can talk to another person about.
It's almost as though 4chan is hyper-social as well as being anti-social. You're exposed to an enormous wealth of outside discussion and opinions, each side of each debate, and a ridiculous amount of information. I mean we've got 67 boards for different topics, and within that, each board has a million different points of discussion. And being exposed to this for frequently over 10-12 hours a day for the last eight or nine years definitely has an effect on someone.
Also I have a great porn collection.
>/int/ introduced me to interpals where I got a 9/10 girlfriend
>was in a relationship with her for around 5 months
>saw each other twice
>in love, considered planning to move to her country
>things suddenly turned to shit, she dumped me
>literally nothing I care about in my life anymore
Never mind then
I have a lot more confidence when it comes to women, surprise surprise. All the red pilling helped me get past a lot of approach anxiety. Now I can talk to girls easy because I don't give a fuck what they think anymore.
It's super easy to get a girl to get naked if you're at least somewhat attractive and know how to talk to people. Although if you're just after that I would recommend some random "meet new people" app or omegle or something.
But I just talked to my ex like a friend for almost 2 months before anything sexual/romantic happened
It's introduced me to a lot of great music, film and literature, but it also distracts me to the extent that I can never listen, watch, or read them.
It's made me feel like a complete failure, but it's made me want to improve myself too. Unfortunately, as stated above, it's often too distracting for me to do anything about it.
>I can consistently come on this sub
posting here has helped me realize how tiny my problems are
>skin made of steel, can't be offended no matter what
>got /fit/ with a poverity-tier homegym
