Do head pats even feel nice?
Did you seriously never get pat on the head as a kid?
I actually feel sorry for you.
i just gave myself a headpat, it feels nice
Not everything requires a hug anon.
Besides you could get a hug and a headpat.
Or a hug and a backrub.
straight hugs are overrated.
>Now getting a headpat from another girl, that's where it's at.
Save the day, get a headpat.
I've headpatted a couple of kittens, does that count? They seemed to like it.
I've only ever gotten a few, but yes it feels good. Though I guess it's more the feeling of being appreciated and that someone is comfortable enough to do it to you rather than the physical feeling.
That's when you watch too much anime.
Depends on the person.
I like giving head pats to my younger siblings. It makes my brother a bit annoyed in a cute way, and my sister likes or hates them depending on how I go about it.
And even as a man in 20s, I love it my mom pats does this. Whenever I'm with her watching TV or something, I'd use her lap as a pillow and force her to pat me. If she doesn't, I'd start crying about it.
I've not tried this with anyone outside my family enough to have a good opinion on this. With my girlfriend, I'm not sure if I should be the patting or have her pat me. She's younger, so I feel like I should, but then again, maybe she's good at it like my mom. It's kind of embarrassing to just ask to try both, and I've not had a good enough chance to naturally try them.

Affectionate human contact generally feels good when done by someone you love and trust.
That's precisely why you should avoid them like the plague. You never know when someone will give you a hug or pat you on the back to lower your guard only to slide a knife between your ribs.
I know what you meant and it still sounds bad
Not caring about how others perceive you and showing your emotions as clearly as possible is a good way to keep healthy relationship with your family. Especially with one's parents. Unless they actually hate you.
It feels nice to get headpats.
I don't think so as my little brother and sister absolutely hate it, but I guess it would be kinda nice if it was a girl and she wanted to suck your cock
I've only ever headpatted my pets. They like it.
Yes. They feel nice, specially if you ask them to do it and they do it.
Also posting King of Head pat. I wonder how many characters out there never got a head pat and deserve one.
I wish I would've headpatted her when I had the chance.
but it doesn't matter anymore
I know I feel nice when I see someone's head getting patted in anime.
I never thought they were that great personally, but whenever I headpat my onee san she really enjoys it.
I think the reason it feels good is not because it physically feels nice, but because it's an intimate interaction that really shows how much the other person cares about you.
No, she's just highly autistic. This one for example enjoys it.
Even this scalp massager felt good
It's a cultural thing, Anon. The head is said to be the seat of the soul in the east. For this reason, touching someones head is an act of intimacy since you are touching the body part closest to the soul. It's generally reserved for family, especially close, older members of the family. To be head-patted is to be accepted, loved and protected by the one patting.
So yes, OP, having your head patted feels good on an emotional level.
Also, having the hand of someone you trust on your head is comforting as fuck.
Of course not, last thing I want as a lady of the patrician variety is some degenerate teenager to get their greasy paws on my illustrious hair, such is unsanitary and destructive to one's hair quality~
I'll grant you that it's nice but there IS a cultural element. If you try to touch the head of an Asian you don't know very well then you can expect some shocked response. That's very presumptuous.
Propriety is important in Japan. Just like personal names are to be used only with permission, intimate touching has boundaries.
>Raise child expecting him to get a job and become successful
>Instead becomes an infantile NEET who forces her to pat his head like in his animes
Why though? There's a big difference between fun and acting like a diaperfur.
You think it is because it's not you the one with a headache.
Bullshit. If it's from someone I trust, I can put up with it. If a random stranger were to put their hands anywhere near my head I'd just back away or move my head.
>someone pats your head
>they get their sweat and germs all over your hair
The third dimension just can't compete.
Sorry, I don't know. I tried finding out ever since I beat it to her but I'm too dumb.
Once in a while, just to show that you care about someone, yeah, they feel nice. Giving too many, or as a "reward" or doing it when someone is annoyed with you is just irritating.
I dunno if its me but I always perceived headpats as something that also shows submission or hierarchy related.
Something about a growass man getting headpatted just feels weird
I enjoy them though
No. I'm not fuckin dog. It feels like people are pitying me with the head pat
Plus, I'm shorter than most people, and it feels especially humiliating when those younger than me pat my head
It ruins hair too.
I really had to convince myself not to buy one after trying it out, because I feared I'd scrape my scalp bloody.
I'm an in-the-closet weeb and I'm in this class full of turbo-weebs (majority female but none of them are even a 4/10) one of them likes to pat everyone on the head and its just awkward. She's done it once in the hallway and I had to claim I didnt know her because I was with normie friends. I'm not a fucking dog, no it doesn't feel nice or pleasurable because thats not how the human skull works.
>I had to claim I didnt know her because I was with normie friends
so how is high school treating you?
you must be 18+ to post here
on the side note, I had the same problem 2 years ago, the difference is that I had an anime bag, and girls would suddenly approach me and even hug me. No, I'm not a fag, they were, extremely ugly, and some spics.
I miss those days
Not even really friends with her in the first place, she just thinks we're friends because I'm nice to her and grin at her anime memes.
Outside of people playing pretend anime, highschool is going fine anon.
She pets people too. It sounds all cute and stuff for anime, but it looks like the "foam adventure" cringe video. I'm tempted to upload a pic I took but I don't want the risk.
born in 1999, legal folks. Though I can't say I havent shitposted before underage.
My mother told me she loves when I play with/comb her hair, but never said anything about liking my headpats, although she doesn't seem to dislike them. In fact, she seems at ease when I do it.
Man that's why I haven't told anyone. So much guilty pleasure watching anime and I've been becoming more anti-normie ever since I started using this fucking site.
Used to be in sports and had a relationship freshman year and here I am now, contemplating suicide over the fact that there's only 2 more episodes until gabriel dropout ends.
I want off this ride
When I was in high school and college, my male classmates tended to like patting my head. I assume it had something to do with the fact that I've always been the shortest in my class. I used to feel a little indignant about it at the time, but now as an adult I look back and feel nostalgic. People don't pat your head anymore when you're in your 30s. Enjoy your headpats while you can.
Maybe it's right to have some hope after all.
I'm sorry i was born in the wrong dimension
I've never actually seen anyone do headpats, and neither have I ever heard of couples doing it. Might be a cultural thing? There's plenty of hairstroking, brushing and headscratching though.
Maybe Slavs don't like headpats
nigga heatpats are the best
i love getting them
both are good but getting>giving
Bunnies always like a good head pat.
You shouldn't keep it in a cage though anon, buns can be litter trained and should roam during the day! At least when you're home.
I 'mire your bun anyway. Very kawaii
how to pat- getting the most out of skinship
>do not be rough
>stoke medium-slow speed
>follow hair direction
>continue even after subject has fallen asleep
>on that note- this is good for those having a nightmare
pets also like being tickled under their chin. That is insufferable for humans though.
I need more details on speed. How many meters per second? Does the hand linger after each stroke? What point to start?
>on that note- this is good for those having a nightmare
I should pat my dog more often. Crap now i wonder again if dogs see nightmares or if she just likes to cry in her sleep
.5-.75 ft per second is good for long patting sessions.
quick pats (1-3 s) can be up to twice as fast, though they are more akin to ruffling
dogs are fairly alert and light sleepers. more research is needed, but the recommended start is stroking set at the slowest, most gentle and light speed while going "shhhhh" at minimum volume
There's only one correct use for those.
are you sure about those measurements? Do you count the backstroke, when you move your hand back to the start, as distance moved? Because 15 cm per second is pretty much the entire length of the petted head in one second.
>are you sure about those measurements?
yes. we here are LoliLabs pride ourselves in accuracy.
>Do you count the backstroke, when you move your hand back to the start, as distance moved?
no. as stated before, stroke in direction of hair only (if the subject is shota or otherwise has close-cut hair, this rule may be adjusted accordingly). one the end is reached, lift the hand back to starting position and stroke agin
yes, I used to love getting head pats or my ears scratched, or especially having someone brush my hair.
Who gives a shit about where does it come from mate.
The image is there.
Sadly, there's hundreds of shit balls and piss in my house.
Some plants were murdered by this little cute piece of shit.
I remember the first time I played this. Spent one in-game week petting her head.
It's the best feeling in the world.
Sometimes they can cause too much fluster.
>was 12 that time
>got head pat from my aunt
>got hair loss and some fungal growing on my head few days later
>found out she has touch my uncle hair with the same disease and it is highly contagious and she decided to not chop her hand off but instead gives me headpats
fuck head pats unless it is 2d
Headpats feel as worthless or as wonderful as the person being patted wants it to feel like. Sylvie does a good job of portraying it - she doesn't understand them at all and doesnt react to them but by the time she's fully in love, she absolutely melts under them.
same for 3D's
>That cute but lewd glasses loli
Just think about how close your hand is to their brain. Scary.
I want to pat them all
>there are people on this board right now that dont know the joy of headpats
id pat you all if i could
The latest update was released this year.
And every year is Headpat Simulator if I'm with Sylvie.
>Waifu age is upon us
I pity the anons who killed themselves before seeing this come true.
No they dont. The only reason this even is a thing is because of how mentally handicapped japanese people are. Hugging someone in public is like fucking them in broad daylight to these people. Holding hands is considered lewd. Dont even get me started on on yelling a persons name. Patting someones head is equal to treating them like a dog in any other culture and would be replaced by hugging in any western nations. Head pats are retarded and the only reason they "feel good" (on an emotional level) is because they hold the same weight as hugs do in the west, they show that the person cares.
No idea. Haven't played in a long time, so everything is different.
You are either a fag or you have never received a good headpat.
>Pet her face
>Heart-shaped pupils appear
My little sister started to love them since watching Gochiusa, especially when Mocha came to town. Everyone was getting patted.
in a culture where it's best that your pride remain socially withheld, and everyone else does the same thing females are often prone to submission. it's best to withhold your affections as well when they may have social impacts even if it's among friends, so when a guy pats a girl she may think he's risking any status of his that may be affected by this because he thinks it's worth it to show her he cares.
of course this is all subconscious and no one actively thinks that way, rather it's always at the back of their head thanks to that culture which will soon be RUINED BY MUSLIMS
In fact, I think its higly person dependant.
I don't really like getting my head patted, but my girlfriend really does. But I guess its more of an emotional thing.
I dont even like when someone touches my head, to be honest.
If you're a beta bitch, you'd probably enjoy being dominated like that. However, if you're a man, you won't like it.
I don't know if how cute I was would come into play if I was paying you
but at least I'm not fat or massive or anything, so I could just lay on your lap or something
scratch my back as well please
chut it! ;___;
That sounds like a good deal anon.
but it'll never happen because you're probably thousands of miles away from me and we're both complete betas who would be way too anxious go meet someone from an anonymous imageboard IRL
Her favorite anime so far is Galaxy Angel so whatever I'm doing can't possibly be all that bad.
It'll backfire pretty harshly if she ends up growing into a lesbo though. We just need to avoid shows too heavy on the dyke overtones, Gochuumon is the gayest anime I'll allow her to watch.
Are you the same anons I was arguing with in /OTP/ yesterday or is /a/ overall just a bunch of assholes.
>Implying reverse image search works with Webms
I mean sure you could convert it to gif but you can't expect newfriends to think of that
I'm the first anon you replied to, and no, I don't know you, nor do I really want to.
/a/ is overall a bunch of assholes, and you must be a newfag to not know this.
Yeah, reverse image search doesn't work. But the kicker is that the webm has a title. The title has the name of the movie and even which part of said movie.
>is /a/ overall just a bunch of assholes.
Yes. As it should be.
>>Implying reverse image search works with Webms
If you weren't brain-dead you would think about pressing the button that says "title".
It is a well known fact that headpats neutralize cute things. It is like a drug for every cute little trap or a loli. That is why they are given so rarely. You don't want your little loli to get addicted. Once they become addicted, it is easy to take advantage of them, just pat them on the head and they go into low power mode (it's like a mini high for them).
Just go all out and turn her into a turbo weeb. If she's indoors watching anime all the time it will delay her losing her virginity by at least a few years. Just keep her away from cosplaying and fujoshit, that stuff will inevitably turn her into a sex-crazed slut.
I'll try and think of it as continuation of my stupid reply.
mfw it actually shows the anime if you jewgle it
are you both retarded?
Consider it a combination of Freudian slip from being in an actual OTP thread earlier, autocorrect, and my own autism, mostly the latter.
As for the new I've been here around 3 years, been on other boards longer.
>However, if you're a man, you won't like it.
>Implying gender privilege.
I'm getting some really bad vibes from this post. Do you start screeching if your mom doesn't give you your daily head pats?
cool, are you single? how old sempai? I'm interested, share that info
>come back the next night
>this thread still exists
i love you all have a picture of my waifu
Learn from Usagi Drop.
Dick her before she get dicked.
You must learn to bunny proof your home anon. WILL THE BUN TO CHEW ON TOYS NOT YOUR HOUSE.
Also they learn to use the litter box pretty quickly, look it up, I thought mine was gonna shit everywhere forever cuz I started late, too, but it worked.
>ywn know what this feels like
just kill me already
>I was with normie friends
Spoilers: You are the normalfag.
>She will be just over one.
My flatmate has a little kid and it's a fucking vile spawn of satan. It's gonna take some time until it grows up into a cute daughteru. Enjoy our hell.
I know japs don't like drawing noses but this is ridiculous
Is she /ourgirl/ /a/?
Not that anon but it is not that easy.
In those cases the parents are usually hanging with their friends or family so no one is taking care of the brat. Soner or latter she will start doing shit to call someone's attention and you will be the only one stupid enough to notice. As soon as she realizes you are giving her attention she will glue to you until the end of the party.
>Born in 99
>These are people who unironically think they're welcome here.
They fact that you're blogging and not lurking is even worse.
>Still hasn't lurked enough to know board etiquette.
I think you might be retarded newfag.
Also stop with the namefagging Jeffery.
I headpatted this family-friend of mine. She really loved it and It felt great giving one.
OTOH, this really, really, tall classmate of mine head patted me and I just felt pure humiliation.
So I guess it depends on your personality.
Head pats need to be done as a result of something. If they're out of no where most people find them weird.
Besides, the patrician answer to a loli sitting on your lap is to rest your head on top of theirs. Shouldn't have gone for the headpat.
That's because /a/ is filled with pedos.
If you were here for more than 2 weeks you would know.
Literal. I'm one myself.
>if i were a pedo id go for 10-13
