        how do you get your neetbux? my grandfather gives me money off of some land he sold and gets monthly money out of and gives them to me because he has his own money and doesn't need the extra. I'm thinking I can continue this for the rest of my life. it's worth a lot, that land.

      life is weird. looking at life like this is bound to pull you down mentally, but it doesn't truly reflect who you are as a person. you might just be the rare kind of person who actually needs to emotionally connect with someone to form a relationship with them, and you've been unlucky enough to not meet that kind of person. ive only ever been able to meaningfully connect with other similarly broken people, and i've met a total of 2 of them in my life, the latter that pulled me away from the precipice by morbidly random chance.

      there's no real solution i can offer you. just know that it's not really on you that you didn't find someone you could connect with thus far. maybe you can still meet that person. and they're often hidden away, so you have to look for people who share things with you and open up them a little.

        and yeah by looking for similar people i mean like starting new hobbies or doing whatever else seems like something you want to do, but with other people around you. if youre anything like me, you hate seeking people to date for the purpose of dating. it doesnt feel natural to me at least. id rather be alone than do that.

      You missed the train at uni, but what if 10 or 20 years from now, you will have an identical feeling, you missed finding a spouse when you where in your mid 30s, back when you could still get a late twenty yo without your age being an issue.
      It's obviously a good thing bing content and low-key happy about your lot in life.. but i feel like things could get a lot better, it's okay to be greedy in life, to want more and not settling for the hand you have been dealt by circumstances.
      ..and i think deep down what hold people back from saying "i'm not content, i want more", is a sense of pride, it's also pride that often hold people back from taking action, "I don't do dating sites, i'm not that kind of guy" etc.

        i think my problem is that i dont i have fomo. i had a gf once. i feel like i tried it and got it out of my system. sucks it didn't work but here we are.
        now in my 30s i forgot the point of a relationship. it's like im turning down offers. the last girl i spoke to was the cashier girl last year. she was being extra nice to me and i asked her for his insta. she has a bf by the way. we giggled.

        I'm 46. It's over for you socially buddy, you just haven't accepted it yet. This was funny in my early 20's and scarily accurate a decade or two later https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7JcGYilsuE

        I'm just happy remembering that at least I got to have two best friends in my late teens. I still think about them sometimes and it makes me smile. Also at my age I can now make casual conversation with people at any business without it looking awkward and forced.

The slowing down of my libido as I approach my 30's also helped. Even as civilization collapses around me I flourish and no succubus will ruin it for me. Focus on yourself kings

    at 19 i was working on a computer science degree at a decent college. i didn't have many friends, i was struggling with girls and pretty much a porn addiction, but my life seemed to move forward and i was enjoying my education.

    the loneliness, insecurity and eventual depression made me drop out and fall back on my parents. after some therapy, odd jobs and years of living with my parents i took the step to finish my degree. shortly after that though, again, i fell back into a spiral of self pity and emotional stress, after struggling to see a future for myself (i've ended up not having use for the degree anyway, but i am proud of at least finishing what i started).

    many years later, i was pushed by my dad to apply for social benefits at least, and that got me starting to work on myself so that i could at least stop being a burden on my parents. a few years after that and various programs, i ended up securing an OK job. certainly a few steps up from what a man in my situation could expect, but i did work hard to get there, jumping through every hoop. i ended up being used by the municipality in a newspaper article as an example of how social security programs works...maybe 1 in 100 times.

    some years later, at 37, i now live in an appartement i own and work that same job, with a few pay raises. however, i do not have a single friend besides my coworkers, and have given up romance even though i have never really tried to begin with. every weekday is the same apart from whatever projects we have going on at work. every weekend is the same, the only difference being what movies i watch. deep down i know i could make a difference in my life and change bad habits into good, and maybe have a better future. but deeper down i know there really is nothing out there for me.

    Most couples I know are dysfunctional in a way or another. Usually the woman can emotionally abuse the male without fearing social repercussions. One of these ladies told me that one day she started shouting to his husband "I'LL CUT YOUR FRICKING THROAT OFF" while destroying furniture due to petty arguing. And she was telling it like it was a normal thing. I absolutely refuse to get a partner, if something like that happened to me, I would have 100% tortured, raped, dismemebered and devoured her out of pure fricking spite, regardless of life-sentences or whatnots.
