I really hate to seem like the m'lady type and I don't support the idea of a friend zone, but it's just so frustrating sometimes. I get their logic though ;_;

also, "let it slip"? What's up with people in these threads and always trying to hide their personalities from people, esp women? Do you just try to portray yourself as a cardboard box?

Thank fuck she stopped talking to me.
My town is shit but has a pretty cool punk and hardcore scene that is divided up into sub groups. There's a lot of crossover obviously, and deviations among individuals but the main ones are
Up the Punx-Guys who will go to the hardcore shows but only if a "tr00" punk band is playing or it's at the skatepark they usually skate at anwyay
2edgy Beatdown Crew-Guys who don't listen to anything unless it's mostly or completely composed of breakdowns and are the biggest dicks in the pit
Scene Kids-Pop Metalcore and associated retardation, go to shows for drugs and pussy only, are nearly dead/have been absorbed into the other sub groups
Pop Punk Kids-Usually Christian and SxE but also liberal which is pretty lolwut. Fucking love to 2 Step even when it isn't appropriate and post on tumblr in downtime
Old Jaded Fucks-Alcoholics and druggies who have been going to shows forever and only continue to go because they don't know what else to do with their miserable lives. Love thrash and crossover thrash to the point where it's almost annoying. Ironically most of them were SxE when they were teens lel
Emo Kids-Probably the smallest subgroup but basically a bunch of 16-19 year olds who listen to Brand New, (old) My Chemical Romance, and Say Anything on repeat + whatever skramz revival stuff they find on the internet or they get lucky enough to catch out of town. It's funny because they're the ones who claim to love music the most but never go to shows in town lel
I'm making this all seem really glamorous and big but in reality it's a lot smaller than it seems in this post.
It's the opposite with me.
I get girls' attention because of my appearance, and lose it because i'm so fucking quiet and seemingly apathetic. I don't know if i'm just a pussy or it's a combination of depression/social anxiety/OCD causing my immensely inept communicative ability.
the few girls that i've somehow not been shit scared to talk to have quite liked me. this shit holds me back from living.
It'd be a little better, but I mentioned ambient to her before and she thought I was talking about movie soundtracks. And it's mainly just that my music was shit because I was fairly new to it at the time, so I didn't want to show anyone what felt like unfinished music.
But I'm sure it mostly comes from being socially inept for most of us.
>Do you just try to portray yourself as a cardboard box?
A lot of people in these threads, myself included, are just really socially awkward but don't realize it til way later in life, so after the epiphany we try to get control of the sperging or whatever you wanna call it but find it extremely difficult so the best solution seems to either go back to being full on music geek who talks about shit nobody, especially women, gives a fuck about at a party forever or just be a cardboard box that maybe someone will take pity on or something.
I'm not trying to sound like a snowflake or /r9k/ but it's honestly hard for people who don't have a severe inability to speak to women in a way that is sexy or even just conversational or whatever to understand. To you guys it just seems like we're TRYING to be huge faggots but for people like me it just happens unless you try to stop it from happening and that usually means being bland as fuck.
I get this too. I've been told I'm good looking and get approached quite a bit, but I've got horrible social anxiety, depression, and some various mental illness. So I totally wreck my chances the second I open my mouth. I rarely go out because I'm afraid someone's going to approach me and I'll embarrass myself as usual.
iktf dude. I just don't have it in me to be confident socially. It might all be in my head but I feel like the misfit in every setting. I can't help thinking everyone wants me to fuck off and let them go about their business. It's this that makes me so quiet, not just having a quiet personality or whatever I tell people who ask.
>girl asks what my top 5 favorite artists are

>talk to a girl in my class

>she is pretty cute
>she likes the music I listen to
>she's great in bed
>she likes to do things outside of the house
This is literally the closest I've been to 'the one' and it's both exciting and scary.
I have a hard time believing stories in threads like these, but then again I don't hang out with squares or talk to women really. I've been talking with the same girl on and off for the past couple of years and she knows me well enough already. I don't really find myself in situations like these nor do I hear about stuff like this from friends.
What I will say is the few situations I ended up in similar to these in high school were ultimately brought on by my asshole-ish behavior and/or awkwardness. Start realizing you're not so far removed and don't insult people by "dumbing down" your explanations. If they're unfamiliar or don't understand, explain.
>'you look like you play an instrument, probably guitar... Are you in a band?'
Well actually I'm a classically trained bassist and vocalist but these days I try to find and play as many instruments as possible. I got these brazilian walnut sticks, fucking ridiculous that it cost me $20 but the sound is nice so whatevs. But yeah I've got a solo project that's a lot of drone, ambient, black metal etc, and I'm also the primary songwriter in a psychedelic band. Well not really a band, apparently two guys who barely know how to play guitar is not a band. But yeah, nearly have all the songs written for the debut album release thing. In addition to that I hve produced some tracks for local rappers, even freestyle featured on one hahaha. Yeah he's just a friend, he remixes my drone music and raps over it, it's nuts. I just love music.
Cue wet panties.
OP IF You like downtempo check my shit out
also https://kingrosenrot.bandcamp.com for free high quality copies of whatever track/album you want.
I won't deny what you've said as I was once a testament to that. At one time my narcissism was through the roof. Once I eventually pulled my head out of my ass though I realized most people are pretty great in their own ways. You start to appreciate more as you become less dogmatic.

Hey you should use bandcamp for your stuff. you can even set it to "donation" so people can get it free without paying anything and if people wanna pay they can pay whatever for the content.
I already released about 7 albums. It's experimental downtempo electronic.
I recommend checking out "Duality" and "AmeroKill" it has an 80's feel to it. the newer stuff like "Justice" is more downtempo ambient related. The url:
I'd sign up for bandcam so you can have a page on bandcamp so you can release your stuff and set it at any price you feel comfortable at or do the "buy now any price" (donation setting).
Just give the most noncommital answer ever.
>stuff I can not listen to when I work/do projects
>stuff I can meditate or take a nap to
>mostly top 40 radio stuff
It doesn't matter. You're not the music you listen to. Your opinions, your tastes, they're just ideas you carry with you and they can change. If someone honestly dislikes music you're listening to while you hang out with them then that's their problem.
They might literally be annoyed by it and it's up to you to try and find something they enjoy, or not and continue listening to the music you enjoy.
Stop making a big deal out of your tastes just because you're afraid people will judge you based on them.
Do you guys just not have any chill or something? Most of these situations where it's like
>"So, what kind of music do you like anon?"
>"P-P--Post metalcore dreamgaze, ambient nowave skramz vocals, house-core jazz"
>"Oh...That's cool, I like Creed."
could be totally avoided by just saying
>"Hey, Anon, what kind of music do you like?"
>"I like Modest Mouse/Kendrick Lamar/Literally anything accesible you can think of bc it's not like you're going to tell them what you really listen to anyway"
bc, y'know, it's not like a normal person outside of a Chinese manhua imageboard is actually going to make a character judgment on something like what kind of music you listen to.
I'm ranty drunk guys.

couldn't care less, thank god i dodged a bullet there
if any of you fuckers want to talk about music with like-minded people, join your college radio. im a DJ in one and everybody in there are massive hipsters(I am too i guess) and we can talk about how Sunbather is black metal for people who dont like black metal without getting looks of "wtf are they talking about". music references are through the roof and if you dont stay on top of current underground music you feel lost. that being said, our humor is very high brow but we're ironic about it.
ugh, this makes me sound like a filthy pretentious cunt but oh well
yep, seeing how it was me that started all this
those online short psychology courses really gave you the upper hand here today anon
guess i should retreat to my cave and give up
god you're lame
I was in my student radio once, and while there were enough people like that, into the newest hype and whatnot, there wasn't a lot of depth, so I quit.
I tried twice to make a program for it, where I would play like hungarian underground music and whatnot, but they refused it both times.
I recently read the book about K Records, and I was sad that my student radio didn't house as many interesting and knowledgeable peole as the one in Olympia did :(
they're supposed to play up&coming artists, and the music listening group are supposed to add cool interesting music to the library.
its goal is not 2deep5u6ever music, some can be experimental but not all out. consider the fact that they're paying for a radio frequency, and why would they pay for a section that nobody is going to listen to other than high brow pretentious people.(unless you're hungarian, in that case disregard what i just said).
my station even has some vaporwave, there must be some /mu/tants in there, im just waiting for the right time to pop the question
imo student radios should be open for nichéy and strange stuff since it's after all amateur radio, and not that many people listen to it in the first place.
I know they're supposed to play a lot of new stuff, which is fine, my problem was that not many people had much of a music interest outside the latest pitchfork/bloggist hypes, and a bunch of people listened to hard rock and stuff like that (there was one program dedicated to hard rock, and one to bad punk). It's ok that you dig up a lot of new stuff for the radio, but for me it's not interesting if your music interest doesn't go a few notches beyond that.

what kind of japanoise do you like
i've been really into boredoms' early stuff like pop tatari and soul discharge lately
The thing with women,especially older than college age, is that they are looking for signs that you are a somewhat normal human being. If you start naming genres and bands they've never heard of they are going to assume you are abnormal in some way and that is a huge turn off. Of course this is a generalization but it's true for the most part.

Sometimes not even music can help me cope with my incredibly beta personality.
Well she was pretty drunk like I said so I'm assuming she was just saying exactly what she was thinking. I was pretty fucked up too last night and i remember going to my friends house afterward and smoking away the pain.
If it wasn't for music (and family, going to a good school, being upper middle class, etc.) my life would be awful.

Jesus I'm so bad at talking to women, she probably thought I was a complete sperg. I don't even care if she doesn't like black metal, it's just mentally I completely shut down when my friend asked her to go with me.
>no singles policy
/tv/ pls go and stay go
>shes like an angel while im a stupid fukcing prick
man, i know this feel. relationships where you feel like the luckiest bag of uninteresting mediocrity in the world are so fucking hard to walk away from.
I don't know if I really know what love is but I think I might now because this girl has made me an emotional wreck for a long ass time but I don't even want to move on. I don't know that i'll ever be ready to forget about her. I know that sounds pretentious and bitchy as fuck, these things are hard when you don't have anyone to talk to though.
that guy btw

It's a good thing she was pretty.
Mine is mostly just sorority girls and fratbros talking about celebrity gossip and sports and playing the most vapid shit. The head of the music dept. (we have to work a dept. over the semester) is a huge metalhead, and loves Monoliths and Dimensions. I talked to him about drone doom for a while too. It was nice. I play a bunch of shit every week. This week was chillwave/downtempo/trip hop
Kek. 11/10 anon.
Hmm, idk, my opinions and tastes are pretty important to me, transient though they may be. I get along well with people whose tastes overlaps with mine in specific contexts. If I'm into certain movies, I like watching them with people if they're into them as well.
I appreciate your whole "don't derive too much self worth" point, but I feel like you're oversimplifying/dismissive.

I never confronted her or pressured her to tell me more about them

honestly, I don't know I'm probably going to follow her when I wake up tomorrow and get no response as to why she cut me out

She was fired before the teambuilding event ever happened. And yes, I worked at a chain of grocery stores that somehow thought teambuilding was necessary. Pretty much the only time a girl ever talked guitar with me (afterwards), too.
>'hey anon, don't you play guitar?'
I laughed harder than I should have. What an improper response.
At the walmart I work out they tried that kind of stuff with us, but my dept told em to fuck off cause we don't have time to be happy.
Of course they do.
>tfw no bf
Think about all the girls you know that don't have a partner. There's a lot of people of both genders that are too shy to actually go for anybody. There's a lot of miserable fucks.

>she says nothing
>mfw grills can't talk
She was cute, but pretty much all she said was 'lol work is so hard', so the question caught me off guard.
The chain had a couple of stores from a larger chain and basically had people from other stores filling in for whatever store/department went out to do teambuilding. It usually ended up with everyone drunk off their faces in the woods, though, so not all was lost.
well changed it now you prick. You just wanted to appeal to the neckbeard audience. Your header still shows a qt. Still like your stuff, keep up the good work.
Corporate does that every 6 months or so. Holy shit some of the mid-20's managers they bring in are fine, but they leave after like a day or telling us that we suck, then show up 6 months later, and repeat.
Aw come on man, that's fucking harsh. As someone who actually studies music though I'll still have to agree more or less though.
Most people around here are boring metalheads, people who think they are wrong in the wrong generation, pretty decent jazz people, and girls who sing and play acoustic guitar hoping to become the next big idol.
Most of them are actually good people, but they are still plebs when it comes to music.

It was surreal, but even if I could use some pussy, I'm not going to risk being known as the friend who banged the ugly metal tattoo chick nobody likes.
