>>25325762 Well it's not like I can talk about pony here. This is a board for greentext stories and casual "lol I'd fuck this pony" posts in place of actual waifuism. I have no other choice than to bother those around me with these things. It's not my fault.
>Wear Pony shirt in public >Guy I work with says "Aren't you too old for My Little Pony"? >Ask him "What, don't you like ponies? Everybody I know likes ponies." >Near by female coworker says "Yeah, I like ponies." >Say "See, everybody likes ponies." >Guy says "I guess ponies are okay..." >Never brings it up again.
>>25326926 Then he wasn't your friend, nor you were his.
The show should have taught you something, anon: that friendship is not something you randomly decide do stop practicing cause "lol he's weird XD XD!". Real friends don't question what you do (as long as it's not hurting someone), they just find a way to adapt to it.
>tfw no friends to tease me for liking pony >tfw too scared to openly state what I like so I put on the face of an average normalfag in an effort of blending in >tfw can't let anyone close because they'd figure out everything about me is a lie.
>>25327011 >I need excuses to hide the fact that I don't trust my 'friends' Nigga, I just told you they bullied the shit out of one of the guys in our group who mentioned he was a brony, I don't need an excuse because I could trust that my friends would definitely shit on me.
>>25327026 Hey, I'm not the one who cried that "Edmonton is a bad place, no friends to be found here".
Friends know no latitude: when you find one, you find one and that's it. It's part of growing up: accepting that not everyone is your 'friend', but that you can still be in good terms with them. Life needs "friends" and "peers" in equal measure. The last ones to make you feel part of a community, the first ones to teach you that you don't always need to be someone else to be accepted.
>>25327133 >Parents secretly think you're a disappointment They've never expressed this to me. Why should I be anxious over something I don't know? >Classmates They don't know I watch the show and I don't interact with them. >Aunt, Grandpa I don't know relatives outside of nuclear family.
Watching a cartoon is not that big a deal and if someone tries to make it a big deal, you either need to explain it to them or they're not worth being an integral part of your life.
>>25327145 Kid, they don't. Caring implies showing it. If they're not showing it in any conceivable way, then they don't care.
But hey, who am I to stop your delusions? Keep believing people are head over heels for anything you do. You're the center of the world, anon, all those news on the newspapers are just a falseflag to hide the fact that everybody cares what you do or think.
>>25327133 >As a cognitive bias, egocentrism refers to the natural restriction on our perception caused by the simple fact that we can only see the world from our perspective. It takes special effort to see the world from any perspective other than through our own eyes.
It's not as bad as you think, Anon. It's most likely that your family went through something similar in their time and just didn't have the opportunity to express themselves. Just be the same person you've always been and people will see just that. Horsefucker on not.
I doubt my best friend from high school would care, but I haven't seen him in years and years. We knew we could sperg out around each other, and the shit talking would at least be good natured.
I wouldn't call the people I hang out with now friends. They are more like coworkers who try to force themselves into my life for no reason. Seriously, it's a crime to them that I would rather relax at home than drive an hour to go get some burrito?
>>25327197 kek, I know that feeling. Truth is, tho, that if being friends means "adapting", this works both for you and your friends. Thus, you have to concede them a couple drive, once in a while, if you want them to do the same with you staying at home.
>>25325989 My family knows but not my friends. I sincerely doubt they wouldn't give me shit about it so I don't tell them. Family is fine with it though, most of us are geeks in one form or another anyway. Mom and Uncle are trekkies, younger brother is a weeaboo, older brother is a poetry fag and likes Twilight. Loads of cousins whom are also weebs or comic fags. Dad is normal but he doesn't give a fuck.
>>25327133 I, for one, know that my parents consider me a failure and a disappointment. But you see, when my parents were my age, they were raising three children (poorly) on welfare checks. They had the first child because they were too cheap to buy condoms, the second child for tax reasons, and the third because they thought it would save their failing marriage. To say that they have no right to criticize me would be an understatement.
I don't have any classmates, and my grandparents are DEAAAAAAD.
>>25325762 I don't parade it around, but if it comes up I'm not going to go crazy denying it.
The only time I really fucked up and revealed my powerlevel was back in HS when this thing was still kind of new, and a (now) friend of mine was blaring winter wrap up in the cafeteria. I turned my head for a split second and must have made a face like I obviously recognized it because he ran the fuck up and sat by me.
Helps having a friend that is a straight up "brony" that shows off enough for both of us.
My friends are fine with horses, yet I can't make them watch at least Season 1 opener. Sad life is sad. My co-workers like to discuss weither or not we are ending today's work early, 'cuz I wan't to be in time for the new episode stream. I still feel weird calling the thing an anime. My acuaintances like to bring up some pony stuff they noticed/got to know one way or another when they are talking with me.
be me, 30 yrs old going back to college for nursing school. Zero friends on campus She college group flier for a /tg/ related group. Fast forward to first day I meet up Guy who made group walks into room. Hipsterish, Zelda shirt, laptop has dashie sticker and shadowbolts logo sticker on it. Look him square in the eyes Liking top cunt in 2015....shiggy.
He replies back. Implying you don't want to cum inside.
I can't believe anyone would willingly tell their parents they watch this show. I know my parents gave up a lot to raise me well, so it's only perfectly fair they get to live in the ignorance that I'm completely normal. Grandparents are even worse. Just don't fucking let them know.
Granted, I revealed my power level to my friends about two months back when we got a flat together. But I didn't make a big fucking deal out of it - they just saw me either lurking on here or watching an episode or something like that. And they don't give a shit because they're my friends, even though in high school we'd talk shit about bronies occasionally. They know I'm not an obnoxious fedora tipping lard ass like your stereotypical fan of the show. And I know they don't like the show so I talk to them about it. It works.
>>25325762 I don’t hide it, but if anyone asks me about it I don't lie. I say I like it cause it's cute ponies doing cute things, and if they press it or make fun of me I call them autistic. Gotta chill
>boyfriend knows, doesn't like ponies but also doesn't give a shit >got 4cc scarf in the mail, Dad asked about it because he got to the mailbox before me. He thought it was cute and really well made. >best friend jokingly tells me not to fuck horses but she used to watch it and we've sold art/plush at conventions before.
I'm not some great greasy hambeast splerg wearing hot topic mlp shirts and pinning a million buttons of muh waifu all over my school bag. It's an interest not a lifestyle so any time someone finds out they don't care. Having a vagina also helps (though I have noped the fuck out of some female Brony encounters) but seriously if you're not awkward about it no one else will be.
>>25331119 That's true but liking girl's toys in your mid-twenties is still frowned on or seen as weird. Even though every other woman around me is obsessed with Disney and hello kitty, it's like if I collected Dora the Explorer stuff because "that's for children, you should grow up". I do get an unfair advantage over you guys though.
Zoids are GOAT but honestly I never got into Transformers.
>>25325762 I did it three times actually: >I was on a trip with some female friends. They started talking about weird series they were watching. I said I watched some episodes of MLP out of boredom. They found it weird but cute. >I had a pone wallpaper in my phone. I tried to explain it to a classmate and he was a jerk, so from that moment on I just said it was a Pokemon if someone asked. >One of my closer friends knows that I like MLP and I told him to watch some episodes. He didn't like it (probably barely understanding English was the problem). We just use it as a inside joke now.
Then I discovered /mlp/ and stopped revealing my power level
>>25326063 You should post some show discussion threads and look for ones to take part in. I've been putting in an effort myself, but it's hard to keep things going without many others getting involved.
>>25327133 No, they don't. There are better people than that in the world. My parents are worse at hiding their power levels than I am, but people greet my mom happily everywhere she goes and my dad works a high-paying job. You don't have to lie to be accepted- at least, you don't have to hide everything. You know why I first got into MLP? Because a friend told me he liked it, and I decided to take a look it too. Now we hang out every Saturday to watch the new episodes.
>>25325762 Only to family and close friends and only in specific situations, usually as a joke when drinking heavily on holidays. Me and my brother in law (who doesn't into the show) got shit faced and watched the friendship games together, it was a good time. Other times I'll use it to extricate myself from conversations I don't want to have, either by putting an episode on or by gradually injecting ponies into the discussion until my enemies become uncomfortable and go away.
