Who /nofriends/ here?
I thought I had some in high school, but they were really just people who also had no choice but to be there, and we had no one else to talk to. I spent two years in college and didn't make any friends despite my best efforts.
I am friends with my brothers, but I don't count them.
>friends with brothers
I could literally never imagine this. What the fuck kind of hippyfaggy family do you come from? My siblings and I have had a rivalry since birth and we still are at it till this day nearly 30 years later, we're constantly competing and hate each-other as if we're businesses trying to outdo each-other.
>tfw can't make new friends at this day and age because no social backbone
>tfw I only made friends in elementary
>tfw all my supposed childhood friends left me
>tfw you'll always be a loser no matter what
You just have a dysfunctional family. Liking your siblings doesn't make you a feel-good hippy you faggot.
We still fight, my brother and I got in a literal fist fight the other day because my music was too loud.
More or less the same for me, although I'm really more so friends with other members of my family rather than my brothers, including my sister.
Honestly dude, friends are overrated to hell. I have maybe two or three real friends that I speak to and see every once in a while and that's good enough for me.
My brother has friends and they pull him into so much drama sometimes. It's actually nice being relatively free of attachments. You don't have to give a fuck about things like friends being clingy and annoying, or friends shit-talking other friends, you don't have to be that one friend in the group who no one likes, etc. You can just chill by yourself and enjoy your own time. Do whatever YOU want to do. Like, no one's going to drag you to do stuff that you don't want to do, so be happy with that.
I'd say once upon a time, I were friends with my brothers before we all grew up and they became normalfags. No one really knows it, but I resent my brothers to a degree for basically being a bunch of slightly Chad-ish jocks who are more successful and jerk-ish than me. They all used to play video games with me like Mario Kart and Smash, now only one of them plays vidya anymore and of course it's always dudebro shit like GTAV, Skyrim, CoD, sports games, etc.
I don't even pay them any mind any more and they usually don't pay attention to me either. I'm pretty sure two of my older brothers think of me as a loser, one pitying me and the other one not really liking me for it. I wish I were in a different family, one who actually gave a shit about my interests, but it is what it is I guess. At least we all still love each other I guess.
that's not what that feel looks like
THIS is what it looks like to always be a loser
Is there a significance you see in relationships with other pieces of flawed flesh? Better yet to commit yourself to an achievable relationship, offering benefit yet devoid of the typical downsides of humans, i.e the arts, passions of hobbies & animal companions.
I can't help but think these relationships are severely overrated, being they're unnecessary and seldom better us. The opposite it seems, being entailed by eventual washout.
Perhaps I comprehend there being some longing of acceptance from your contemporaries, yet it seems the closer we get to each other, only the more disgusted we are to become.
I used to be amicable to everyone I happened to meet regularly but I never formed any deep attachments. Then I stopped giving a fuck and became a hikki. I feel like I will never catch up to everyone else. They're in another world, like actual adults and I'm still a child. It's better not to inflict my presence on anyone.
I know what you feel OP. I don't talk to any of my HS "friends" and all the the "friends" I've made since HS have been more like acquaintances. It's hard to get people to like me and most of the time I don't like being around people. But I know at the same time that I need to change
having a rivalry with your siblings while young is natural. Taking that into adulthood and legitimately competing and not wanting the other to succeed as adults is not normal and is a sign of a disfunctional family,
>no real friends in HS just other autists who sat in silence during lunch
>had a handful of friends in college
>NEET for 2 years only talk with one guy over kikebook anymore
Im 25. I dont go outside anymore. How am I suppose to meet people to even make friends? Everyone is already married or has a friend group by now anyway.
Here. I haven't had any friends for nearly a decade now.
I'm a NEET loser so every interaction I have with someone is spent worrying that they will work that out and start looking down on me. Plus how do you hold a conversation when you do nothing of interest? I can't explore hobbies because I have no money, I find it very hard to get a job because I have zero communication skills.
Whenever I do try to talk my mind and my words don't match. I'm not used to talking to people outside of my head, I don't know about body language or how much information people can naturally infer.
Shit's complicated and the longer it goes on the more ashamed I get
>friendless for three years now ever since I finished highschool
>tfw you always blurt stupid shit out when trying to talk to your brother or mom because you're in such need of socializing
>tfw you remember all the shit you did in highschool and know why nobody liked you
>>tfw you always blurt stupid shit out when trying to talk to your brother or mom because you're in such need of socializing
Fuck. I only ever talk to family now, and feel like I spurg out like a fucking tard about stupid ass shit because never talking to anyone.
>tfw gave up on making friends
>tfw people still want to talk and hang out, and I can't bring myself to do it
>tfw that hot chick from molecular biol somehow still wants it after you've made it clear to her you're fucked in your head
>tfw your awareness has evolved to detect the "fuck off" signals the moment they appear
>tfw you mean something to people but you don't care
>and desperate crushing loneliness
This is impossible, yet I'm not sure if I wished you were right.
Won't deny that, most of my English being learned from reading rather than vernacular.
I guess if I'm coming off as pretentious and not informal I ought to be called out on it.
I have three main groups of friends and I also hang out with some of my coworkers so they would be considered group 4. It is usually one meetup every 1-3 months and honestly I prefer two of the groups over the others because they like anime, videogames, and Magic which interests me more than partying or going to social gatherings which the other two groups prefer.
Sometimes I get lonely because I see myself as the extra man in all the groups, but when I hang out I kind of prefer being cooped up in my room. I went to see Deadpool tonight and it was very lame (the experience, not the movie, the movie was very good). We went to a drive-in theatre and it was pointless because everyone was in different cars and I would've preferred to watch the movie in a theater with better sound quality than my radio. It's alright though because I think I'll go see it again by myself in a theater. I've been going to the movies by myself lately and it is quite enjoyable.
Could you elaborate? Is it my word choice or my overall tone which does this?
I make note of any English words I do not know when reading, then often later apply them to forum posts so they're remembered how to be used in context.
I can see how this could come off as pretentious, but it's more so my practising than attempting to seem sophisticated.
You come from a family of absolute losers. Regardless of you perceived successes. Even if you're all rich making 100m a year you sound like you have literal trash where DNA is supposed to be

Loner life is okay anon, just need to spend your time wisely.
I haven't called my only friend for over 8 months. I don't want to. He's contacted me a couple of times implying he wants to hang out but i always find excuses not to. I feel like socializing with him or anyone else is boring compared to staying at home.
>went to the dorms my first year to appease my parents

>some guys come sit next to me and start chatting me up, they're cool brodudes

I had friends when I was much younger. I was a complete shithead, probably a sociopath without a conscience, and drove them away and did awful shit. Now that I've changed and developed a conscience, my social skills have atrophied and I have to live with the memories and loneliness. Karma? Maybe, if you believe in that sort of thing.
I don't get how you have the energy to work 50 hours a week and still go to the gym and bike. I work around 20 hours a week and go to school full time and I don't even want to do things like play videogames. The school and work just kills my vibe and I don't even bother because it takes up so much time that there is no point in even bothering to play games because I won't get anything done on them.
it's okay anon, I get paid well and have the weekends off to enjoy riding and vidya.
i'll green text my mon - fri for you anons.
>0500 exercise, shower, breakfast, get ready
>0630 commute to work
>1215 more work
>1830 commute home
>1900 get home, cook dinner
>1930 vidya etc
but like i said, i'm an oldfag.
I don't necessarily hate my job because it is at a company I like and I don't have to deal with people. I also like the people I work with. However, with school involved, it becomes a nightmare. Working a 9 hour shift and coming home to 4 chapters of reading, an outline, and 2 math sections to learn is fucking infuriating. If I could just get the school out of the picture, working would be bearable.
I've gotten so little sleep in the past week as I've had to go to class or work and I don't have much time to pick between sleep and homework let alone things I actually enjoy doing. Even if I get my work done, school gives me so much anxiety that it destroys my will to do anything. It is especially bad this semester as I am taking an online math class which is fucking difficult and I am taking COM 101 (aka give speeches to the class) which is crippling for me because I have severe social anxiety.
Why the hell is this board so easy to relate to?
e-relationships ruined the eccentric god of a man I used to be. They came at me like piranha gnawing at my exuberant personality. Now all that's left is a dry, stale, beaten down man with the last thing I had going for me gone. I miss how fun I used to be.
Oh and yeah, friendless here. Both online and irl. My last online friend went off to the military like 3 weeks ago. :/
>friendless here. Both online and irl.
I'm kinda glad I stayed anonymous all my life I've spent on the internet.
Even though I occasionally have a good discussion on this chinese cartoon board, I never feel inclined to take things further with a person, even if we get along quite well.
Something about internet friendships just seems like a hassle and I try to avoid it at all times.
I agree but at the same time being friendless kind of destroyed my ability to game. As is known basically every online game nowadays requires having friends to play with as playing with randoms just deters and almost always ruins the experience. I've all but quit gaming due to the dependency I was forced to accept as my reality through leaching succubi and when they're gone I all but shrivel away, drained and uninspired. Having that one good friend would push me to do stuff that I normally wouldn't and because I considered him a friend I'd go with it despite my mind fighting against the notion. Always helped both my heart and mind heal from all of life's other issues.
Long-winded as it may be, what I'm trying to say is having friends does have it's perks despite how much of a nuisance they can be.
>Something about internet friendships just seems like a hassle and I try to avoid it at all times.
I feel the same way. Especially trying to force a friendship on steam in one of these threads I keep seeing around.
It's just not worth it.
I feel like you'd be someone I'd feel obligated to do something with but would never initiate anything. What's your steam addy?
>only time I ever regularly "socialised" was walking around the local town stores on the way back home with a couple guys I hung out with in college, 5 years ago
>literally talked to no one besides family and profs for the three years of Uni, home was a five minute walk away
>been unemployed for two years since I got my degree except for short bursts of experience stuff, haven't socialised at all during that time
Got a couple or so people I consider close friends online but haven't had anything resembling any form of socialising for about half a decade, and even then it was just because it was on my way home.
I ain't even complaining, but I do think I'll probably struggle to socialise if I end up in a situation where I need to.
at least they like you anon. You are more worth than you think.
>tfw all contacts during my life were started by me, if I did not nobody would talk to me
>tfw it was pointless as I have noone and nobody even ask me if I am alive
A sign that life is coming to end.
I always complain that I have no friends but anytime someone wants to hang out with me, I just flake or ignore them completely. My girlfriend is the only friend I've got and knowing women, that shit can turn sour at any hour.
She's a awkward geek who barely even speaks. I don't think she'd defend me. The cucking part is worrying in any relationship considering she was being fucked by two dudes, me included, when we first met.
Abandoned by my only bro recently, It was within the realm of expectation and it hasn't bothered me as much as I thought it would.
My best friend didn't talk to me since he got his stacy gf. Yesterday she dumped him and i met him to go drink a tea at a turkish caffee. He's crushed and i feel really bad because he still wants her really bad. He told me he gave her over 500 euros worth of gifts. Goddammit he's suck a cuck but i feel bad for him. His girl was a perfect 10 and i know what if feels like to lose someone like that.
At least i got my friend back
Don't date good looking girls senpai
I have two friends out of fear of being friendless, but I'd like to have no friends. It was better that way. I fear losing my mind if I lose them, I think they play a huge role in keeping me sane, but I wish I was truly alone sometimes.
>My best friend didn't talk to me since he got his stacy gf. Yesterday she dumped him and i met him to go drink a tea at a turkish caffee. He's crushed and i feel really bad because he still wants her really bad.
Yeah, this exact thing happened to me too. Then he got another, and I didn't see him for god knows how long.
Then he stole mine and I haven't seen him since.
Protip: that's not a fucking friend.
>no one will ever like you as much as you like them
>no one will ever be excited to see you
>no one will ever call you their best friend and mean it
>tfw no pure and innocent friendship
Just let me be an anime already.
>tfw when you're best friend from middle school is now an ultra normie with an Instagram, selfies, twitter, and lots of friends and gf's
He was the only person I could relate to, and I kinda hate him now
