ITT: contradictory normievice
>just b urself bro
>brah u just fake it til u make it
Not contradictory at all. Be yourself means be yourself, fake it til you make it means fake believing that "yourself" is awesome until you genuinely do believe that you are awesome. It doesn't mean "pretend to be someone else" it means pretend to be confident.
>just text her a funny pick up line bro
>u gotta let her text u first or u look desperate
>just hit the club and chat people up dude
>ew anon clubbing alone is just creepy and weird
>"waah I'm so lonely"
>"waah women can't be lonely because they can just go outside and pick up a guy"
>yet somehow, they themselves can't go outside and surround themselves with strangers
I fucking hate failed normies ("robots").
>don't worry about what other people think! just do what you want!
>but don't do that, that or that
>You just need to get out and do things
What things? Elaborate on these things
>>yet somehow, they themselves can't go outside and surround themselves with strangers
>you just need to develop some structure in your life
Beach, mountains, bar, movies, park, someone else's place, etc etc. Again. Literally anything is better than locking yourself in the house all day and then wondering why people think you're boring.
>bro the right girl will come along you just have to be patient
>girlfriends just don't happen brah you have to put yourself out there and meet people
>you have anxiety? yeah sometimes i worry about being late and stuff too
You don't seem to understand the nuance in such advice. By "be yourself" we mean, "do not pretend to like things or dislike things in order to get someone to like you". By "fake it until you make it" we mean "act confident and it will eventually come naturally".
How is this hard for you speds to understand?
>Looks and money don't matter! It's personality that counts!
>you must be a fat unemployed neckbeard manlet if you don't have a gf
>Ohh man I totally got high off [substance] this weekend at [Chad]s party
>and I had sex with this girl with [odd trait]
>hey did you watch [sports event] last night?
>this is what normies find interesting
There's a reason I call them manbabies. He's probably 20 or so, it's just his mental development stopped progressing somewhere around the age of 10. He now has a vocabulary matching that of a grown person, just no maturity to speak of to usefully apply said vocabulary.
normie defense force is fully operational and on high alert tonight. these are the people memeing on this board in the year 2016.
how did this happen.
Yeah, because they're doing actual things instead of staring at a screen all day. Vidya and shitposting are fine but if they're all you have no shit you're going to be boring. You guys don't seem to understand that.
>playing vidya is a waste of time!
>you should be doing something normal! like consuming drugs and alcohol with others!
>ay boy throw me dat orange
>nah son I said an apple
my wife's son's dad
are you implying after high school normies don't just drink and sniff themselves dead inbetween talking about sex and sports?
because it's been the exact fucking same for 3 years in university, where I am now
>By "be yourself" we mean, "do not pretend to like things or dislike things in order to get someone to like you".
This is known; what you refuse to acknowledge is that often "being yourself", in the context you have provided, just plain entails no one liking you.
case in point; >>26260346
Right here it's admitted that you can NOT "just be yourself" if you like certain things that are boring to others.
In which case, yes, you'd have to fake being interested in other shit, and therefore would not be "being yourself".
I'm a full blown normie but I won't sugarcoat it: you guys are full of shit, and your circular reasoning and just world fallacies aren't helping these guys at all.
You're just proving them right.
Well I guess the bigger question one should ask then is "do you like yourself?" Because if not, that's probably something you should work on first. Sorry for assuming that from the get go.
So what would you rather talk about?
Newbie Normie here.
We know it's important to be interesting instead of boring, but getting high, fucking strangers and watching TV are now personal virtues and pastimes that make someone interesting?
I mean woodworking, programming, martial arts, I can understand that, but just getting intoxicated and fucking?
You're setting the bar pretty low and you're making these "Robots" look like the psychologically healthy ones here.
>Well I guess the bigger question one should ask then is "do you like yourself?" Because if not, that's probably something you should work on first.
I like reading, shitposting and playing vidya all day. Why would I ever want to change that just to socialize a bit? It's just not good advice. You need to tell people what they want to hear.
>"do you like yourself?"
How can these guys love themselves when everything in their frame of reference from the time they were little, their most formative years, tells them not to?
I saw a picture here, a vertical comic kind of, with 2 male stick figures, one on the left side, one on the right.
The one on the left is told "you're a piece of shit!" his entire life, the one on the right is told "you're awesome!!" his entire life.
At the end, the one on the right had a girl on his arm and said to the guy on the left something to the effect of "You can't love anyone if you don't love yourself!" while he walked off with the girl.
You're telling these men to do something that is second nature to you because it's been in your frame of reference since you could think.
It's akin to telling a fish to breathe outside of water.
You can't always "just be yourself" and expect everything to work out.
There is not "someone for everyone".
These platitudes and bromides help no one. They're just cruel, like Louis CK says
That's assuming they should care about other people's opinion. If you need validation from other people then sure you're going to be fucked regardless. And if you haven't killed yourself yet because of that, then chances are you're somewhat okay without other people's judgement.
So if that's true then yes normie advice can and should be applied. After all, you probably want to attract similar people to you, no?

Congratulations on making the most left-wing post of the day
>Strawman: The Post
You believe the entirety of being is dictated by the self and only the self.
You are wrong.
Basic validation, mostly and especially in childhood, is a necessary component of healthy human psychological function.
Fuck you, I've been here since 2006, when there was no board especially dedicated to you fucking sad sack autist fuckheads. You are what is wrong with 4chan. You are the cancer. Newfags get out etc etc
my advice jus kill urself bro
>try to be my true self
>stop faking being interested in other people
>halt all conversations
>don't put any energy into socializing
>avoid social situations
>spend majority of time alone
>give 1 word answers and replies
"wtf dude? what's up with you all of a sudden? you used to be so much fun."
>You just gotta go up to a girl and say "hi"
>Of course you don't creep up on her while she's minding her own business. Respect her privacy
why are you being so edgy and aggressive?
i've known my friends for years but when I first met them i was putting on an act to be popular or likeable whatever dumbfuck thing that i thought was important.
they want to go to movies, play games, go on trips, study together, etc but obviously I'm not actually into any of that and I'm starting to grow tiresome of having to fucking fake all my behaviour.
when they're acting the way they want to, and showing me their true selves, i feel guilty because i do care about them. they're my friends.
why do you assume all normie activity involves being loud and obnoxious? it just shows that you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
you're the literal fucking who
all of your opinions are SJW bull shit that involve normalfag views, not to mention you actually popped up within last month.

People just say whatever shit in the moment makes them feel superior to you
>You have insomnia?
>Yeah i was up at 4am last night too i got NOOO sleep
Nice meme image. Here's one of mine.
Not when you're simply not attempting sleep. 99% of people claiming to have insomnia just play videogames until it's early morning, then complain about "not being able to sleep". It's junkie behavior.
Why you gotta shame manlets for their bodies tho
It's a meme image, nothing in that image is supposed to be interpreted as fact, just like image of this (>>26264027) Anon.
There's nothing wrong with being a manlet. In fact, I wish I was a technically invisible 5'1 manlet. Alas.
>In fact, I wish I was a technically invisible 5'1 manlet.
It's common ground for every normie, it's effectively a springboard from which other, more interesting conversations can form. Nobody personally holds a person in higher regard if all they talk about is fucking, conversations about drinking and sex are just background noise for us while we work out who's worth talking to.
