Curious to see what pushes people here, less directed at people who had their fate chosen aka ugly as all fuck with no hope for anything better and more directed at people who probably coulda been happy but fucked it up.
Aspergers and a lot of cough syrup.
Now I'm just depressed and lonely in front of a computer screen and pretty sure doing anything is pointless.
I just live for simple pleasures I guess but those seem pretty empty too sometimes
I hate the lack of values in modern day society, like casual sex or drugs being okay. I like to believe an introverted community like r9k would relate but I'm probably just kidding myself by thinking the people here aren't just as shitty.
My insecurities and my personality mostly...
>Mexican on the outside
>Whitewashed american on the inside
>Makes it very difficult to make friends because i dont know where i belong
>Feel as an outcast among white people
>Feel as a retard among my fellow hispanics
>Even my boss in McDonalds called me "Guero" which means "white" in spanish
I browsed /pol/ a lot and then >tfw no gf caught up to me. So I learned better than to be infatuated with women who happen to show me the slightest attention, however I am still here because of habit I guess.
Dated a girl for almost a year before I fucked everything up, fell into a deep depression and alienated all my friends. All my memories from when I used to socialise never fail to make me cringe
I can't and don't want to form bonds with people or feel strong emotions.
I was curious to see if the people here were called "robots" because they were similar to me, but they're just a bunch of emotional and lonely people.
I stay because I like seeing how other people think.
I browsed 4chan for a while, when I was a khv but having put my penor inside someone, I didn't experience some sort of revelation like most people expected me to.
I still haven't had a serious relationship and feel like my social awkwardness (haha yeah it's just that) has kept me from being in a serious relationship.
also some girls think I'm a faggot and don't even think they have a chance as a result. I have another friend who is literally Chad who has about the same mannerisms and speech as I do that has no such problem, but he's charismatic as hell and physically a slightly better looking person.
I started lurking after the Mercer incident. I always shared the misogyny and knew it was here but I never thought to browse before.
Also I'm socially apathetic and a 6/10 so never had any real girlfriend before. Spent most of my time either doing schoolwork or playing video games and watching anime. I just don't talk much in person.
Most girls seem like lazy slobs with no character so it's never been worth it.
I've been there and still am, but have recently gotten a will to work harder at college so I can get a job and have a family. My main problem is finding someone to wife. Sometimes I don't even know but I gotta keep going.
that's the right path.
honestly, get a hobby that involves something physical. there's a bunch of them out there and even if you're half invested you can meet good people through it.
you could run, rock climb, or play a sport (kickball beer leagues) at the rec level and meet some good people.
anything that increases the volume of new people you meet is good for you.
Enjoyed this place before the deletion. Came back in 2013 and found out there are still remnants of the predeletion feels. I enjoy reading about people's lives and I almost never contribute because I am emotionally closed off.
I was pretty edgy as a kid and I was smart with computers so it took me seconds to find a comunity full of edgy people.
Eventually I never grew up and led a life of escapism to cope with my fear of asking out my girl class mates and just this year I started trying to get back on track. I've noticed girls like me again so the only thing holding me back is my lack of experience.
Even if I manage to fix my life I doubt I'll outgrow 4chan's humour. It's the only thing that genuinely entertains me.
been here since junior high, now 23
came for the weird comics that used to be on the frontpage(!!), stayed for the memes
i've bummed around most of the boards at one time or another, /x/, /tg/, /mu/, /r9k/ are probably my homeboards, but i used to mess with /fa/ and /fit/ a bit too
not that into posting, I just like the communities here, it's something familiar that I can have in common with fellow shitbirds IRL
