I'd love to hear how other people deal with life, and how we ended up where we are. Suggestions? Advice? Make some friends?
I can hardly believe we're on to version four of the thread! Thank you to everyone who's been posting, and to everyone on the IRC channel, I still can barely find the words to say how much it means to me to be talking to other people with similar problems. You guys are, honestly, the nicest friends I've ever had, and don't believe anything negative anyone says about you, on here, or in real life!
Also, I'd like to say a special thanks to the anon who posted his personal plan and list of tips. I'd love to have a link to it right in the opening post, but I wanted to ask permission first. Does anyone else have anything similar?
Carrying over from the old threads:
>Old threads, best method to share/upload them?
I've been saving the threads, but I'm not sure what the best way to share them is. Suggestions/advice?
>Steam or Myst Online: Uru Live
Is anyone interested in making a Steam group? I remember some people were. Suggestions/advice?
Does anyone else play Myst Online: Uru Live? I do but I play on a private server type thing. I'd be interested in making/joining a semi-private one just for us from here if anyone else is interested.
>Some conversation starters:
- Does anyone have any collections?
- What are your hobbies and interests?
- I'd like to get together some (good) resources for some common diagnoses like Social Phobia and Avoidant Personality Disorder, can anyone contribute any links?
>The IRC Channel
On the Rizon Network, channel: #NEETadv
If you're interested but are really nervous about joining the channel, send me a /msg or /query on IRC, I go by cpucake_13.
>IRC channel for girls? #Neetgirls for now
I'm considering a seperate IRC channel for girls if there's any femanons or /cgl/ people who aren't ready to jump into the main channel.
On the Rizon Network, channel: #NEETgirls
Was I being irrational?

>I say I'm not jealous, say that I'm content with myself
>she says "ok" sarcastically
>ask her wtf is that supposed to mean
>she says "Well you seem to be annoyed that black guys are better endowed than you, that doesn't sound like you're satisfied with yourself"
>Its been a long day, tell her to shut the fuck up and say if shes got such an obsession over black dick she can go and fuck one for all I care, We're done
Had 47 missed calls so far and still going, was I being too harsh? It's just that it really pissed me off at the time, and in front of her friend, I don't want it to look like I'm some insecure faggot who envys black people because of their dicks and give the impression I'm not above average.

My best friend since age 14 is becoming a little brat. I'm closer to her than my own sister, but it wasn't until very recently that I've become aware some things she does. Our parents our friends, so this isn't someone I can just "block" from my life. Plus, I love her, but she keeps disrespecting me in weird ways.
For example, we had to visit my mom who lives in another city, but I lost my driver's license, so I asked my friend if she would drive since she likes driving. She agreed, but before we got on the freeway, she starts speeding and breaking sharply at each light. I told her to not do that in my car, just for safety, if we got in an accident I wasn't sure what would happen. Then she makes a comment like, "I have a good track record, don't worry." I told her that wasn't the point, and that she should just listen to my rules if she was in my car. Then when we get back from, she picks up chipotle to go and eats it at my place. She opens the chipotle directly on my tablecloth, which is a pet peeve of mine, so I ask her if she would like a plate... "no, I don't want one, it's a tradition for me to eat it like this," "but I don't care about your tradition, I care about my tablecloth which I don't want to get dirty." then she goes on ARGUING with me about getting her way.
Aside from that, it's her general sucky personality. She is bitter because she didn't get into med school, and is VERY competitive with people. She loves to see others fail. For instance, a really intelligent and smart friend of mine just told us she is pregnant. She hasn't transferred to Uni yet, and she had a lot going for her. It made me sad to hear the news, but my friend admitted to me she was happy that her life was going down the drain.
It's annoying to try and mother her, but I can't stand her behavior! I hate sounding like this, but I can't help it. It gets on my last nerves. There's more I can go on about, but mainly, whats the best way to get her to start respecting me?

I'm going to kiss her tomorrow. When she's driving me home, after pulling up in front of my house, I'm just going to lean in and do it.
I could've, should've done it Saturday, after our second date. You know that moment, walking in the parking lot towards your cars, when you stop and say goodbye? She was nervous, excited, animated, grinning like a madwoman... and I gave her a hug, like a fucking idiot. Still, not all is lost; since then we've been texting literally nonstop, with over 200 messages passing between us on Sunday and Monday and some today too.
Any /adv/ to this, other than to simply do it?
God, I can still smell her perfume, three days later...

I've spent the past year or so improving myself a lot. I'm in good shape, I have excellent social skills, and I do very well in my field of choice. I've gone out of my way every day to make sure I am a cut above the crowd.
So why can't I ever just land a girl who isn't in a relationship?
I've gotten pretty good at flirting, but it only seems to work on women who are already taken for whatever fucking reason. They'll start flirting with me back, touching me, teasing me, asking me to go out all the time... hell, one or two have even followed me around like a puppy dog while I had to run some errands in the building I work in.
But they always have a guy, and then I'm all
"Well if I can pull her away from her current boyfriend, why wouldn't this same shit work when she's with me?"
What am I doing wrong? All I want is to enjoy a fulfilling relationship in my life. However, it seems like all the women that I meet aren't of any real quality.
