      Yep, unironically this site fills the social need.
      Best part is that unlike R*eddit — that works as echo chamber where unpopular opinions get hidden form views, and popular takes get internet point — people on this site are contrarian, so every belief gets challenged.

        Not really, though.
        Yes, reddit is an echo chamber promoting a certain overall view and Cinemaphile is contrarian. What that means is Cinemaphile's overall views are defined by contradicting reddit's overall views. Any time you see someone here disagreeing about racism, gender identity, womens rights (etc), it's a troll passing the time. Those views certainly do NOT get challenged here in earnest.

        So while reddit is an echo chamber, Cinemaphile is a counter-echo-chamber, the views here only exist to oppose reddit's. Which is manchildcore and obsessive. Reddit gets mentioned in EVERY THREAD, has been for years. Having views that are "the opposite of what reddit thinks" means you have no true convictions of your own.

    I had this core group of friends from age 13 to 21 that were the greatest group of dudes to chill with and we all talked like we'd be friends forever. Now I'm 28 and 1 cut me off altogether, the other did the same but after a bullshit political differences argument he started, the third was my total best friend and he let his girlfriend completely drive a wedge between us so I'm lucky to see him once a year, and the last one is still my buddy but because hes a full time welder I'm lucky to see him every few months. Its rough when you had the perfect friend group and none of them appreciated it like you did

              I'm married for like 6 years now with 2 kiddos. My kids and wife are my life and rightfully so. Most of my close childhood/hs friends are too self-absorbed in their own marriages and lives to really keep in touch. A few times a year we may arrange a brunch but it's too many people, too little time for it to really matter.

              I try to reach out frequently over Insta, text etc to the closer ones but it's never reciprocated. Most of them are just poor at comms. Most nights I'd rather just spend with my kiddos and then have sex with someone who I know loves me and I matter to.

              I look fondly on those nights though and still invite a bud or two out to see a band play or something but sometimes I just take myself out.

              Glad I have those memories of the younder child years or even teen/20s when I'd ring my friend up on a Friday or Saturday and say hey lets go catch a movie.

      Yeah, I think this is common for most people. Some replace the core friend group with another one, but it’s not the same. Growing up with friends, vs. adopting them as an adult. It’s like the ones you grew up with were almost like brothers. I’ve had enough friends now, I don’t even bother. I can’t pretend to care about anyone new.

    You're supposed to stay friends with your childhood friends. Hes a moron for losing them. I guess he had shitty parents tho, as did the other boys, that was kinda the point i suppose. A good parent would make friends with the other boys parents and ensure they never lose contact over the years. Unless of course they naturally just start drifting away. But for most cases it's not hard to be friends for life. If you're an adult and you don't have any friends left over from your youth you either you did something to push them away or you never had them to begin with

Met up again after 7 years and it was we just met yesterday. You just have to be picky with the friends you have and make sure to keep in touch with them now and again.

      Pussy is a resource, and for a man to value pussy it has to be HIS. Women can not pimp themselves correctly because they always fall for Chad's tricks and then lose their ability to pairbond. She's growing up in the first ever era where a woman gets to do this cheeky cake eating action of "Lol I'm just all your friends. How could you EVER be attracted to me? #MeToo." This girl can't make female friends and we're gonna assume it's actually because she's just autistic for a girl and can't keep up with their games and not that she likes the attention from having tons of male friends. The reality for the guys is we need pussy. I don't even mean to the level of state mandated gfs as a meme, but it's obvious guys will only invest in society and keep the lights on if we have a woman to go back to to make us happier. Luckily if you don't have too much 'tism you can rationalize it that it's too much trouble and booze, porn, and videogames can fill that hole to a coping level. To be honest though, women need to be told how to live their lives or they do this dumb shit and wonder why they grow up single and 30.

    I did and they were sisters who lived across the street. Our childhood was pretty fun and awesome. They both made me choose at different times to kiss them. It was like young love mixed with Stand By Me. Used to go hiking, explore the drainage tunnels and local creeks. Played Atari and NES, ate snacks, went to the pool. Our parents would take turns taking us out to dinner with one another. It was fun times.

    Then the older one, (my age), got pregnant out of wedlock in hs. The family moved away out of shame. The younger one did too and neither are married.

    Hollywood likes to overrate these childhood moments. The only good parts is teen sex if you were lucky to be goodlooking enough to get laid so young. Everything else was waste of energy and time.
