Op you are a huge fag.
Male friendship is measured by how much you can insult one another without anyone taking offense.

I try to embrace the meanness of my friends so I can become tougher, but
deep down inside I sometimes still get a little sad about it. I just want some nice friends who I can be all happy with and laugh at everything, not have them suddenly be jerks to me over something we're supposed to be having fun with.
I have plenty of friends that happen to be girls. They all have a best friends everything is fine facade, and a passive aggressive nature when they're angry. Then they talk shit behind each others backs which makes it real.
I know my friends are like that. Granted we typically toggle the team chat so we don't have those problems.
Also nice taste OP

Male friends usually bust each others' balls when playing with each other.
Especially with mine and Smash Bros
What Does /V/ Think About Summit1G. I Think He's One Of The Best CS:GO Players And Twitch Streamers.
Are you a grill?
inb4: Yes, it is quite obvious.
This behaviour is completely mutual and you made a faux pas in standing up for someone in this setting, not only in implying that someone needs standing up for and also in understanding the situation.
Generally guys will talk shit and bust each others' balls because they know that the person on the receiving end can take it and will forgive them.
Personally I and every other guy I know acts this way. That's why nobody likes people who get offended by every little fucking thing, at every turn. They're no fun to interact with and you have to watch your interactions with them constantly so as not to set them off.
When you genuinely dislike someone you either ignore them (and/or talk shit behind their back to others about how much you can't stand them) and/or beat the shit out of them.
Not saying that that's my own modus operandi but that's generally the way things work.
That being said, I gotta say it WOULD be nice if my friends would just be friendly again once in a while, but it seems like we can only be respectful when it comes to discussing business/serious personal matters. I guess that's the way shit works though.
Rag on eachother: laugh it off, grow stronger
Rag on eachother: cry, stay fragile
This is what is wrong with society today. Instead of becoming resilient by facing challenges, we avoid problems and stay weak.
Hence the "victim olympics" and SJWs.
We are becoming delicate because we won't face diversity, we'll just ask society to remove any challenges.
My friends are constantly, constantly making fun of each other.
It's fun but sometimes I wish I had a friend who would compliment me.
>Friend gets nice kill
>say "nice!/Good job!/Etc"
>I get a nice kill
My friends and I aren't, we just crack jokes about whatever's going on. I wouldn't be offended, but I just don't understand people that get worked up over games or anything. We're just relaxing.
>having a female in your vidya circle of friends
boy I sure do love walking on egg shells!
Get any two somewhat decent friends together and the ball busting, retarded jokes, and homosexuality flies through the roof. There is always a line but we all know how to skirt it for fun. You gotta learn to give and receive to be good buddies

Are your vidya friends not like that? I mean your example is a little extreme, but it's cool because they're such good friends.

He could just mute or ignore them if he really didn't like them.
>not enjoying being insulted like the little bitch you are

Are you guys exaggerating or do most women really can't into banter?
I play vidya with a gril who doesn't give a shit about any of that or the dumb feminist bullshit in video games.
Then again I'm not friends with very many women.
I had this black friend in highschool which I traded racial slurs with.
Everytime we'd meet, we'd call each other chink/nigger. I accidently did it in front of another black dude and got some shit for it, though my bud bailed me out. Most people piss around with their friends alot.

I wish i could use "morally wrong" humor outside the internet, but irl people get super easily offendet about everything that isn't mainstream humor.
I can attest to this. My workplace has a significant amount of women in some places of power and even some that aren't. ALL they do is talk shit about each other behind their backs. To their and everyone else's detriment.
It has actually fucked out department because the guys just work together and rarely give a fuck. They attack themselves and everyone around them like rabid dogs when they feel it deems necessary to their whim.
It's hell on earth.
It's only getting worse. The cleansing can't come sooner.
In my experience most women can't into banter at all and take everything extremely personally, but of the women I know that actually play vidya (not counting iOS and Facebook shit) most of them are at least not offended by stupid banter.
I think people who play online vidya in hardcore games tend to be more used to trashtalking and shit and are less likely to be bothered by it.

It is like people complaining that all people who play online are jerks and immature kids, when they only play CoD on Xbox live....
Play games that have a decent community and look out for good people.
It also usually gets a lot better when you actually become good. Because good people stop using their energy to shit talk and actually see their own mistakes and improves on it, instead of just being idiots and trash talking.

Why are people like OP and him so autistic. What happened to them?
What games should I play anon?
The only recent game that had a community that I liked was Tera but my friends quit around level 25 and I learned mystic is shit. I was also on one of the least populated servers.
I never understand how people can put literally hundreds of hours into a single video game and still be so fucking bad at it. I have friends with easily 800+ hours of Dota 2 and they haven't improved at all from the day they started.
I just don't get it, gitting gud is not that hard.

It kind of amuses me how the people with this mindset are often the same ones who will get angry over people unironically using emotes like 'xD'.
There's this girl on Mumble who complains any time someone uses an insult that can be linked to a type of person. Race, Gender, Nationality, Ability. But especially anything along the lines of "fag" or "gay." It is not even her Mumble.
I'm strongly considering telling her to shut the fuck up the next time she does it, but she acts/sounds super cute, so I can't say with 100% certainty that someone I actually care about won't whiteknight the shit out of her, which I'm not totally prepared for. It seems like a trivial point to make, but the impact it's already had has been terrible, and will almost certainly eventually lead to a schism within the community.
No one is saying you CAN'T use em, you're just a fag because you do. pic rel
>people getting offended over the word retard
>they compare it to calling people gay
how the fuck?
when i call you a retard its because you are doing something so stupid that only someone with a severe mental issue would do the same thing. you are acting like a retard.
if someone calls you a faggot, its usually not because you are lusting over men, they are not the same.
one is a negative false equivalency and the other is truth
It's a backwards relationship.
With guys it's like,
>With friend: Holy fucking shit you cock breathing homolord, how about you trying not dying for once huh? Just try it once man, see how it goes.
>With other friends: Oh anon? Yeah he's a pretty cool guy, been friends since x years.
And with girls is like
>With friends: Omg it's been forever, how you been girl? Oh god I love your outfit.
>With other friends: Holy fucking shit, she wouldn't stop showing off this garbage ass outfit that she probably got from the dumpster down the street. I honestly don't know why I keep hanging out with her.
Because we have much better reaction images for that.
People who use emotes are people who generally have undesirable personalities.
That's not banter, that's legit retards trying to sound tough.
Those are things I see randoms say to me in any multiplayer game.
Pretty sure that guy is just a complete beta, or they are his gay lovers and he's a masochist
>used emoticon in every line of text
>had a long ass name on MSN messenger with color codes and shit
Oh god young me was a huge faggot, holy shit, i wish i could go back in time and punch myself in the face multiple times, thank god i'm a normal person now.
That's banter anon, a little off comment about you sucking at something.
OP's didn't sound like banter, unless it's slavs or Aussies, then it's actually mild banter
>best friend is a trap
>constantly rag on him when we play games together because I secretly want to fuck him
I don't know why I feel so compelled to be mean to him. Is that a normal way to express sexual attraction? Maybe 4chan has conditioned me to find cute boys being bullied hot.
Not much to do with 4chan it has more to do with society saying being gay is a bad thing. So yes it is "normal" right now for people to pretend to hate gay people but actually have feelings for them, being curious or just wanting to fuck them.
I'm not pretending to hate him, though. I like him and he knows it's just me busting his balls, but I don't know why I'm so inclined to be an asshole to try and get in his pants.
No, it is definitely a sexual power thing. You are completely out of left field. You seem like the type to unironically state that all gay bashers are secretly gay themselves.
You want to assert dominance, two males interact differently than a man and a woman.
>You want to assert dominance, two males interact differently than a man and a woman.
I think he might enjoy that. Maybe I should just ask him out. Seems like it might be tough suppressing the urge to be mean to him.
I don't understand, I'm not religious. I don't hate gay people or anything, either.
I have only really played competitive video games on PC, when I play online.
I mostly played Starcraft (1 and 2) the last 5 years and some single player games here and there.
Once you get over the barrier where people are decently good, but still suck, but believe they are really good and deserve to be better (note the, feel like they DESERVE to be better), then you start to meet really cool people.
It seems worse in MOBAs, as they are so team depended and breeds mean shit talking.
I just find some game that people take seriously and you will find people who takes it seriously while still having fun.
I recommend CS:GO (even though I never played it, only CS1.6 and CSS) or DOTA2.
And let go of your casual friends. I love my friends but I dont play video games with them. They are to bad at all the games and get to angry while playing. I rather make online friends to play with and real life friends to hang out with and watch movies with.
>No, it is definitely a sexual power thing. You are completely out of left field. You seem like the type to unironically state that all gay bashers are secretly gay themselves.
Not all of them do but some do. Are you really going to deny that? People do hide their feelings with aggression especially when they see that they won't be accepted. But yes i might have been wrong in this case.
I don't think anyone is willing to say homosexuality isn't accepted in society anymore. The vast majority either actively support or don't care what you do or who you fuck.
Maybe this might be true of some more Backwoods" areas of America and the world.
>we insult eachother all the time
>it's fucking uncomfortable as fuck when someone says something nice
One thing I'd like to point out with banter is that I only do it with people I know well, at least in real life. In games, I don't care, it's a game, it's part of the fun.
I've met girls who are superficially sane and normal, and are fun enough to play with. But in general most girls I know will crack the moment I say anything somewhat insulting or aggressive and either go offline or start b'awwwing.
Gurls r werd
>OP's face when standing up for those bullies
a true hero
this is how friends treat each other mate
not like you would know any better
I never said that, I just meant that you seem like you got a bit of an issue, which most of the people in those gamergate threads do. I think you'd get along with them well. You could even call each other faggots.
>I never said that
>Shouldn't you be over at eight chan talking about gamergate right now?
Look I know doublethink comes naturally to you but at least acknowledge it,
>invite friend over to play some dudebro couch co op games
>he brings his girlfriend along
>we autistically insult the shit out of each other progressively getting more bizarre
>he goes to the bathroom
>his girlfriend tells me to stop giving him a hard time
weird as shit
I wish I could take advice from people here about how to handle offensive jokes from friends, but you can never be sure about which one of us is socially retarded
But I never mentioned anything about tumblr and being coddled. I don't even surf tumblr and nothing I've said has had anything to do with being coddled. I think you just see tumblr as some sort of spooky illuminati corrupting your pure internet experience, but in reality you're just an angry dork that nobody likes.
>friend brings girlfriend over when we're supposed to be playing video games
>she sits there bitching the whole time, obviously doesn't want to be there
>he offers to take her home and then come back
>"No I don't mind it's okay"
>goes right back to bitching
Why even come along if you're not going to enjoy yourself? Are you that empty of a person that you need your boyfriend's attention EVERY WAKING MOMENT OF EVERY DAY?
You use a term used mostly by a singular website.
I jokingly reference that website
You go up your own ass and start throwing out assumptions that I am a rogue gamergatefag.
I think we are both in the wrong here.
Call their ass out. If they're making you uncomfortable let them know, otherwise you'll build up resentment and break the friendship apart either way. If they aren't understanding drop their asses, they aren't good enough for you.
Hey now, you're the one who went up your own ass and threw out assumptions that I was from tumblr, I just returned the favor. Also bruh how the fuck have you not heard people say shitlord before? I say it constantly and nobody I know has ever thought anything of it. I picked it up from 4chan.
My flatmate has put up one of his exs for the past few months. She was crying for hours yesterday because her boyfriend wanted to play vidya with a friend one night out of seven instead of seeing her. I don't get how you can dedicate/mentally corrupt yourself that hard.
I'm almost forced to wonder if most women just never develop hobbies or interests outside of what "their man" does, because this is so goddamn common. They just seem to go ballistic if their boyfriend wants one night to play games or watch movies with his friend.
Why does being generally nice get me the attention of gay guys online but not cute girls?
>i picked it up from 4chan
As far as I can remember "Shitlord" was never used much on 4chan. It started on SA as a corruption of "Publord" then got picked up in the social justice sweep of SA. I mean 4chan CAME from SA but honestly 4chan branched off beforee shitlord was widely used.
I don't understand how people get this fucking crazy about seeins someone every single day.
I mean fuck, i only see my best friend once ever six months.
I wish it was more often though
Weird, I dunno what to tell you man. To be honest I've never gone to SA before. Back when I first started surfing 4chan I always just figured it was "that site you have to pay for" so I never bothered. I play on their SS13 server sometimes but I prefer /tg/server overall.
Huh. Well I honestly don't know where you picked that shit up, maybe /co/ after the Generalling or /tg/ after they got raided? If you can't handle banter, why do you stick around 4chan? People here shittalk all the time no matter the thread and even when they completely agree with you.
>tfw I'm the archetypical gay best friend.

>friends find my porn
>bust my balls relentlessly about it for weeks
>their girlfriends keep asking me why I even hang around them if they're such dicks to me
>keep having to tell them I know they're just messing around
I wasn't implying shit, I was directly calling you a woman
It might have been /co/? I used to surf there before homestuck and mlp shit took over. As of now I haven't been on there in literally years. I never really surfed /tg/ that much, a little here and there in high school but I dropped it pretty quick. And I can handle banter, tbh I love shit talking on 4chan, I just don't like having friends who are overly negative and shit talk all the time. There's a point where it just isn't cool anymore and begins to feel legitimately shitty. When I was a kid I had friends who pulled that shit a bunch and I hated it, eventually I grew up and dropped them for people I work better with and I'm much happier.

>everyone with me noticed this
>say "wow what I fucking autist"
>everyone with me is like offended that I'm not offended that austist and autism is used now like the word retard was before
>suddenly I'm a bad family member and shit
I've wiped this family members shit before mind you, and sat through a few Disney films at least 80-200 times just so we could pend time together
When did words supersede actions?
I swear people only get squirmy with words because it reminds them bad things exist, burying shit like that is completely aburd and only causes people who need help to be neglected
If everyone partook in cringe threads and saw chris chan I doubt they would cut care for mentally ill people or leave them to rot in the street when they refuse meds
Well I suppose you are just a different type of person than me. I love surrounding myself with people I don't agree with, I love arguments and shit talking and minor fights and shit. That's all part of the human experience to me.
>friend comes over to my apartment to play games all the time
>starts having sex with my female roommate regularly
>now he just comes over to see her and barely talks to me
I'm afraid to inform you that you're wrong. If your common interactions in your friendship are based around being a rude asshole, that's cool, but don't expect every man to be such an unrefined beast.
My friendships are based around bad puns
What was your porn? Mine was mostly gay shota. A lot of it was incestuous. Thankfully they've dropped it since.
True enough, I'd rather surround myself with people I work together well with in my off time. Even I get in little squabbles with my friends from time to time but if I can keep things moving smoothly that's the route I'd rather take. I do agree that conflict is part of the human experience, but I'll leave that for other people to dish out.
My friendships are based around bad puns
I make them all the time ever since I discovered how much one of my friends hates them.
>Due to massive sexual repression, never, ever talk about sex.
>Everyone thinks that I'm the world's biggest prude.
>Visit /d/ on a regular basis.
If this ever happened I'd be completely fucked. I'm sweating just thinking about it.
I guess they just clicked randomly and ended up at my gay shota, for me. My stuff is meticulously sorted and despite supposedly having no knowledge of what it is, they somehow ended up at the folder containing the absolute worst porn I have. Drawings of gay pre-pubescent boys in drag having sex with their brothers and/or fathers.
Are you all as effeminate/forever young as I am? I didn't choose the shota life, the shota life chose me.
If I was actually making mad /ss/ happen I'd be fine with it, but that's just not how it works in real life. It's just gay men. Gay men 24/7.
At this point I'd rather be a huge-ass manly man like a JoJo or Big Boss.

I once had to explain why I have a whole folder of CP to my friends. Pic related.
CP in this context means cheese pizza. I love pizza and I was on a diet so I would stare at the pictures sometimes when I was really hungry.
>had some Vividass and Strike Witches art on my phone
>one of my friends notices and says to send it to him
>send a bunch of random shit to him every so often, mainly just asses and other stuff
Guess that's what happened when you have like-minded friends.
> a jew joke is made
>someone in public speak yells out "gas the jews race war now"
>a couple seconds of silence

There's gotta be a fine line between this and sperging out, because I'm pretty sure I've heard of vidya rage threads where anons complain about the exact thing in OPs story. The people trying to act like real men in this thread are actually making me laugh though, this really is one of the transition boards when newfags [quickly] move on from /b/.
Don't remind me.
>first time having sex with one of my gay friends, he's Asian

Well when I say shower, I mean in the bathroom before I get in the shower. Jizzing in the shower just makes a mess if the water is warm, and can clog the drain eventually. Better to just do it into toilet paper and flush it.
I know what you mean, I've actually had a couple close calls in the past, but I've managed to avoid a complete disaster, but I'm terrified of that one day when it all goes wrong
You really aren't friends with another male if you can't insult the shit out of each other.
That's how you do things. You point things out in jest, even if it's true. Because you let them know that by doing it in a joking manner that you're cool with it.
I thought everyone knew this shit? It's male interaction 101
>I am a socially awkward fuck who doesn't hit on girls
I'm starting to think that this might be the root cause of our problems. The failure to approach girls leads to a sort of confirmation bias of being a gay magnet, because gay men will still approach other men, but women, for the most part, do not. This causes the perception of attracting an abnormally large number of gay men, when in reality, you were attractive enough to get a girl in the first place, but the onus was on you to approach the girl and not be a twitchy, socially awkward piece of shit.
>When you genuinely dislike someone you either ignore them (and/or talk shit behind their back to others about how much you can't stand them) and/or beat the shit out of them.
Exactly. No one is yelling or insulting you when they dislike you. This should be obvious for everyone. If one guy keeps shouting to another about how much he sucks or how much he hates him, chances are they are friends.
I know, I even got hit on by girls a few times (average looking, of course)
I am much less socially retarded now, though, but I still don't hit on girls because I am too insecure and proud
>Meet cool new friend online
>They confess to being trans
>This happens every fucking time.
I don't have a problem with it, it just seems to happen a real fucking lot.
What the fuck are you agreeing with him for you stupid fuck?
Your social anxiety is the result of
1) Poor parenting
2) A lack of positive social interactions
It has very little to do with you if the feedback has been negligible thus far. Fucks like that assume otherwise in their fantasies because they don't know better. You can't just be a fucking alpha, you need confirmation or you'll come off a fraud and everyone will know.
Like that one laughably fake guy almost every knew or knows. Followed the crowd, folded to pressure, went to tons of parties and hung out with people but no one wanted to talk to or associate with them.
That sort of persistent retard is fighting fate futilely. People with any social grace will always see right through them and turn their act against them, shit I can't recall how many times I've had to watch one of them get embarrassed in front of everyone for shit they put on themselves.
Sounds like he's a beta getting bullied by people he thinks are his 'friends'. My WoW guild are a bunch of extremely racist assholes and we don't even talk towards each other like this.
>you were attractive enough to get a girl in the first place
This is why I know you are a virgin, because you think simply being attractive means you will get any girl you hit on
My circle of friends only joke about politically incorrect stuff it seems. Like one of us is gay and we bash him for it all the time, like commenting on how he must stop sinning (non of us are religious) or how he screws himself to the top where he works etc. We also have loads of nigger/jew jokes although none of us really think of blacks people or jews to be lesser of a ethnicity.
Also, somewhat related: guys and girls view conversation differently.
Guys like to be challenged and to fight. You can easily see that on /v/. But rather than actually sharing feelings or girly things like that, we prefer playfully bashing each other. Showing off how smart you are is part of that mindset guys have.
But girls feel antagonized and shamed when they're criticized. They don't like to be seen as dominating discussions. They like to express emotion and share secrets, and that's how they pick friends. Guys pick friends by sharing in activities.
>I go to a liberal college, so no matter what classes I talk there's always something about gender or race or whatever
Actually it's more like "Trans dudes are more likely to be outcast nerds"
Seriously you don't hear about them becoming outspoken social butterflies, they have a fucking mental disorder that prevents it.
My friends and I don't do that, and we're really close.
One time a couple of them left insulting messages on my phone because I didn't want to hang out that day, and I called them right away to tell them that they were acting like assholes. They understood and didn't act like annoying assholes again.
There are many different kinds of friendship, but I don't like yours.
I'm this way with my friends, yeah. We're huge asses to each other and we constantly try to show we're better than the others in pretty much anything.
But that shit eventually gets pretty old. Eventually I have to ask "are we even friends? Could I say something fairly personal to you? Or are we too busy trying to be combative to do such faggoty shit?"
It's alright sometimes but I know people who gave me shit ALL THE TIME. I mean I gave it back but sometimes, just on a few occasions I'd like to talk to my friends about something and not have to worry about them trashing me.
Why is every single god damn aspect of life a fucking battle. I even have to carefully act seven ways around my friends to have any at all. Fuck life.
I said he was probably attractive enough on the basis that he has a sizable number of gay men hitting on him, you faggot. You'd have to be a complete narcissist to think that.
Speaking of narcissists: >>265108209
Consider the following:
I know exactly what you mean and it's fucking terrible.
But we all consider eachother to be equals. My little circle of close friends might think differently, but I just think honesty is the best policy, and if the banter gets to be too much, I say something. I don't cry or explode about it, I just tell them to stop and why, and everyone's okay.
>One time a couple of them left insulting messages on my phone because I didn't want to hang out that day, and I called them right away to tell them that they were acting like assholes.
I would not want to be your friend. They were obviously wanting to hang with you and were disappointed that you couldn't so they showed you affection through banter, and you just act like an asshole.
I have yet to meet any friends online that are trans.
Be it from any PC game, /vp/ trading, and even
having my steam profile link posted in steam friends threads by some ass hole who insists I'm a G-Fur ERPer. Most of the anons I meet are generally cool people.
However, if it's not an anon, the person is ALWAYS gay or a child molester
They are actually. One most certainly is and the other says he has a "drop of autism" maybe. Any time I try to talk to them about societal issues, philosophy, science or history or their views on things or fucking anything aside from video games, parody videos and anime they shut down.
It's awful but I've known them for years and they're the only people I've ever considered real friends. Everyone else is just an acquaintance. I really want friends who like what I like. Mine don't really. We just have generally similar interests like "sci fi, video games and funny things". Generic shit, you know.
>we're all equals
>until you hurt my feelings, then I am more equal than you
Sounds like you and your friends are a bunch of bitches that can't handle the banter. I suggest a dose of man the fuck up.
If you have to ask, you already know the answer. Just in case you DON'T know, the answer is no. They no longer consider you a friend, just a punching bag. An easy target that doesn't fight back.
I'm the same way with my best friend - we constantly give each other hardcore shit, but we know when to be serious and when to be dickheads. I can talk to this guy about serious shit and know he's gonna take it seriously as well. Stop being such a faggot and move on. Or better yet, sort this shit out because it's obvious there's an imbalance.
>showed you affection through banter, and you just act like an asshole
To me it sounds like a very selfish thing to just send people insulting messages just because I didn't want to go out that particular day. Granted, I'm very introverted and my best friend understands that, so I can say I don't want to go out and he will understand that and get over it.
these niggas get it, 10/10 would hang out with
>Some guy is an ass
>The other person happens to be female
I bet you're still a virgin and afraid to talk to women.
Come call me beta when you actually got a case.
This, only the closest of friends can do this.
Literally only the handful of guys I knew from middle/high school and played games with them all the way until now do we constantly shit talk each other.
I got plenty of friends from my college days, but we never shit talked each other like I do with my HS buddies.
In HS we were total dickheads though, looking back I think all of us regret some of the things we did to other people.
Must be hard. Do you have Aspergers?
>I really want friends who like what I like
Like what? If you like sci fi, vidya and funny things, and so do they, aren't those things you like?
Even fucking easier. Add australian people on steam with anime grill avatars, good chance one of them will be. It's what happened with me.
Currently friends with one,
currently dating another.
Just please remember the serious risks socializing with them.
You're not a chaser are you?
But we do banter, and we try not to take it too far. If one of us does take it too far, we apologize and move on. Do you have a problem with being fucking stupid? If so, I'm sorry for your disability.
You wouldn't give a shit about some dude mocking another dude
>man is mean to man
>nobody gives a fuck because that's just how we are
>man is mean to woman
>I MUST DEFEND HER HONOR AND CHASTITY
>woman is mean to woman
>women are all catty bitches anyway so it's expected
You should consider yourself lucky. The opposite thing could be that they didn't contact you at all, and didn't mind that you weren't there with them. They did indeed mind and you should be thankful for that, not act like an asshole.
>imagining a dad telling his kid "wow jesus fuck kid you killed your mom on the way out and you cant even get fucking good oh my god learn how to fucking predict where people are going to be"
>ten voicemails saying I'm a faggot loser
I think it's perfectly understandable that I should call them to tell them that, if there is any way to get me to hang out, it's certainly not acting like dumb assholes towards me. I mean, just come to my house and bug me or something, don't be jerks about it.
The best compliment is shit talk leading up to the clutch, because the insults show you that they are paying attention to you.
Then when you succeed, they don't need to say anything, because you know you did well and you know they saw it.
If you fail, they talk shit to soften the blow and make it seem like it wasn't really that important. I mean, if they actually tried to coddle you or some shit, that just shows that you look like a fucking invalid to them.
Chaser are as close to a sexual predator as they come for the transgendered. If you get branded as one you might as consider yourself on the sex offenders registry.
They're essentially sexual deviants who specifically target transexuals. It can either end in rape or emotional manipulation for sex. It's more common than you think.
If you wanna 'date' a trans-women just to give them the dickerino you should probably think long about it.
I was in the same boat as you, though I didn't bring up serious stuff because I think those conversations are universally cringeworthy and underinformed. I dropped them but I fucked up, because I'm going on here more frequently to talk, so find a safe way to replace them if you must.
Yeah, such fucking jerks, trying to get their introvert (seriously, what the fuck is this faggot shit?) to step out of his cave and hang out. I'd hate them too.
You sound like a real prissy bitch.
But a loser like you only care about defending girls hoping to get laid
Pic related its you
>tfw friend would always throw shit at me
>follow this logic
>suddenly gets a gf and acts like a pompous cunt, constantly acting affectionate just to get under my skin
Not saying you're wrong, but there are those kinds of situations
I don't have Aspergers as far as I know. I function fine on my own and have no problem talking to people, I just don't like to.
They like things like sci fi and fantasy and anime, but we don't like the same exact things or to the same extent. I know a fucking disgusting amount of Star Wars lore. The extend of their knowledge is "Oh yeah, Anakin is Vader and the clones are cool and stuff".
That's just an example. They like things much more than me as well. We just don't have anything to talk about. When they bring up their stuff I don't know how to respond and vice versa. Problem is they're both fairly autistic so I don't even bring my interests up anymore because it instantly shuts them down or they humor me with a quick response then change the topic.
So yeah, we can't have conversations about anything in real life or in fiction. Best I can do is learn about their interests and play along even if I'm not passionate about them.
I guess I should. I feel bad a lot of the time for not going out as much as I should if I'm asked, but that's getting off topic.
Why is that?
I mean it's a selfish way to react, with aggressive messages just because they didn't want to hang out. I for one would just let them be if they didn't want to interact with other people.
>have 2 friends, lets call them 1 and 2
>1 is strong, showed me 4chan, been friends with him for at least 7 years
>1 is the type of guy to tell you to go kill yourself if your being a loser or a faggot, but is the broest of bros once you get to know him.
>not really close to 1 until after my "that kid" phase in freshman year in high-school. Broke up with GF at the time and kinda wanted to start anew, so he really got me into 4chan. (He showed me the website 2 years prior but I only browsed maybe once a week out of boredom
>Enter 2, friend of an old friend. Scrawny and home schooled, but smart and carefree.
>Become good friends with 2 in a short amount of time. Hung out with him a shit-ton, gave him lots of friends(including 1), got him his first job.
>1 and 2 become my best friends in no time. Always play vidya or watch anime with these guys, even discuss smutt with them.
>Fast forward to about a month ago
>GF of 3 years breaks up with me out of no where, lose job few days after. Add on alot of dying family members and it makes for a depressing times.
>Considering suicide, think it's time. Tell 1 and 2, found out they both hate their lives and want to commit suicide
>My strong and carefree friends wanted to end it too, but I figured that we all need to keep each other in check like we always have. Start to cheer them up and talk them out of it.
>Give myself hope and purpose, pull myself out of depression.
1 and 2, you fucks are awesome. I could never ask for better friends.
>inb4 niec blog faggot xD
>Kill yourself, you quiet-ass, sit at home by yourself all damn day punk bitch.
What the fuck are you doing on that board if you're not like that?
Again, some ftm are incredibly 'dysphoric' about their penis and hate when anyone touches it or even brings it into notice. Even considering them 'men' can drive a few bonkers. Not even the fucking nasty kind, the passable ones can freak too.
Like I said, think long about it.
>friends ever contact you unless they want something like cigs or to borrow money
>they asked to borrow my 3ds to play the smash demo
>I say they can use it but not borrow it
>They delete my files for gunvolt games
>they ask if i wanna hang out
>tell them i can't
>i get this a few hours later (i'm green)
You don't need friends
Why do people always get so mad at people in video games? It's just a game, man
Yeah, it's kinda alright, OP, but only kinda. See, it's okay to shit on each other every once in a while, but you have to have to respect for your friend underneath all that, and you have to know where the line is.
Otherwise the friendship you end up with isn't really friendship, just you having a competitive streak with a bunch of people you've banded with, but who aren't really your friends, just some people you hang out with, like this guy >>265115525
>Have no online friends
>want to make some, decide to try cod because lots of people play it
>meet people, they put me in a 1vs all of them match to see if i am good enough for the clan
>i rape them all
>talk for a bit, they invite me to a private game
>"okay guys lets do a fun noscope only battle, put on sniper rifles only and flash bangs"
>oh shit noscope what is noscope, put on weapon like they said, aim and kill a guy
>"HOLLLY SHITT U GOT ME FROM THAT FARRR BACK WHAT THE FUCK?!"
>it goes quiet as he watches the killcam
>he see's i aimed "wtf anon u cheated gtfo"
I had a girlfriend like that once. She didn't have many friends and never did anything meaningful when alone aside from reading. She HATED it when I spent time anywhere but with her, and INSISTED on coming to gatherings even though she openly hated them
She told me she would rather be miserable with me than be miserable alone. Pretty fucking selfish if you ask me given she'd ruin whatever were doing for everyone, but that's how she put it
usually introverts become exhausted after dealing with lengthy social situations because they can't relax during them
so if you magically transform into an extrovert during social situations i don't think you're an introvert at all
They're all I really have. I've met a decent amount of actual (dare I say) normal human beings the past few years but they aren't what I consider real friends. At least not yet. We also have busy schedules with school and work. Sort of hinders the friend making process.
But what I really want is a few friends who aren't always aggressive as hell, like similar nerd things but aren't complete social fuck ups. Not possible it seems. The only thing more impossible is finding a decent girl who has morals but isn't hardcore religious.
I was just telling them I couldn't hang out today.
I was house sitting while everyone was away.
I sold them my n64 a week before that whole incident
That was the most stingy part
I gave them a good price
20$ because i thought they were my friend
>In Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck, it was found that boys were criticised eight times more than girls in the classroom. This allegedly led to boys trying harder, while the girls were more likely to take criticism as a personal attack. Furthermore, they observed that boys had more aggressive relationships, pointing out each other’s faults and calling each other names, leading to the development of a resilience to harshness.
>Why is that?
Not that guy but probably because you return their interest in you with asshole-ness.
>I mean it's a selfish way to react, with aggressive messages just because they didn't want to hang out.
No one is saying it is okay to physically drag you out of your house if you don't want to go out, but there is nothing wrong with them contacting you and try to hang out with them, just to let you know that they want to spend time with you. If you don't want even after that, it's okay, talk to you later, but getting upset that they even tried to hang out with you is stupid.
>I for one would just let them be if they didn't want to interact with other people.
Again, you should consider yourself lucky that they have such an interest in you, when you apparently don't return that interest.
I have a friend who is very introverted, and I nag on him to hang out with me even though I know he doesn't want to, and he tells me that he doesn't, but I think he appreciates that I at least ask and show that I would want to spend time with him.
straight men specifically target women
yellowfeverists specifically target asians
gay dudes with a straight conversion fetish specifically target straight men
being trans does not make you some super special exotic creature, you're just a person like everyone else and you will be subject to the same shit everyone else is subjected to
I can only think of someone telling someone else to shut the fuck up being acceptable if they are being really obnoxious and the game is hard/competitive, dunno what you see as being so clear.
Holy shit this entire thread
this entire place is like high school
like i'm a cunt to some of my friends, but i'm not a dick all the time jesus.
not all friendships need to be one way and you don't need to express manliness cause why
this shit exists outside of high school?
I don't have all day to explain it, but genes and looks are like the paint and body of a car. The engine might be fucked or nonexistent but the right design will make it look more than it is.
As for Alphas they exist but not how you think. What I'm telling you is people who are clueless about these things, for example most of us here, naturally assume things about others. Self-reinforced ignorance is a very dangerous way of thinking, it's the cause of most of the problems in our world. when you replace actual knowledge and experience with instinct you're bound to do something thoughtless.
When people with no confidence see someone they think just must be alpha they immediately begin lowering themselves physically and psychologically.
That's how it starts. There's a baseline. No one wastes energy stepping up above anyone else, but those who know how to stand around people who will instinctively bow and kneel before them like gods will appear high and mighty comparatively.
It's like magic, the magician isn't clever or a demi-god. He's just some fuck like everyone else with a few tricks. The audience however is really fucking gullible.
So the completely human magician becomes superhuman as a way to justify what they don't understand due to a lack of knowledge or experience. Idiots saying "you look good, so you have nothing to feel bad about", are that audience. The audience who only sees and understands the surface. The audience lowering their heads to everyone they pass by.
"You never text me first so i'm going under the assumption that the hey is for some sort of request."
Basically you are calling them needy cunts and jews, using proper online terminology. Pretty explicitly too, if you said it to their faces you could at least play it off as being pissed and only half serious. This sounds like you're being a pissy woman about it.
>am somewhat decent player
>know a guy like this
>always play like shit just to piss him off
>"why are you so mad bro it's just a game"
I swear I can't have fun in league unless I'm pissing at least one person off, doesn't even matter if he's in my team.
fucking EVERYONE on /v/ is on average, 23 years of age.
The biggest minority is probably 16 years and under. Then 40+. Then 30+.
Every fucking person in this thread is probably in their 20s.
>The one friend that tries to be a pseudo intellectual in general
Yeah it is weird. I want to talk about newer games, but if you want to talk with the older crowd you gotta go to /vr/. There's some shitposting here and there, but the overall difference is staggering.
