Well, noting actions and emotions is really the best way to convey that in text. That's how novels work, I guess. If it's super important that your statement be read a certain way and you don't have the chops, time or space to convey that, label away.

The way they're doing their anime stuff, though, is the sort of thing you do if you're doing an online rpg session in a chat room or by post (my personal experience), which is just super weird to randomly throw at someone. I mean at least that one guy used to be in anime club with that one chick so it's conceivable they used to communicate like that. That poo poo ain't for somebody's wall though, you can PM people that you want to bone them, you mongoloids!

I have some friends who are girls and I find some of them attractive but we have no issues.

It might be because they would likely rather die than date me though and I don't blame them one bit.

Now that I am in my early thirties if I find a chick friend attractive enough that she keeps crossing my mind, I'll ask her out. If she says no, and it's always no, I never mention it again and still chillax and be cool after explaining that I'm good with hanging out and being friends and that I'm not gonna pine over her or whatever. If she ever feels like getting romantic, that's her business, not mine. It's worked pretty well so far. I blame my therapist for making me a decent human being.

Guys can and do be friends with women they would like to gently caress/fall madly in love with and not be weird about it.

or you know, start hanging out with normies who don't hope you will find their *ahem tugs at shirt and adjusts fedora* awkward stares, gifts, and acts of kindness, a pathway to sexual relations.

this is hard because i have a strong impulse to befriend everyone irl

also like three of my friends have committed suicide so i hate leaving people friendless or feeling unwanted because no matter what people tell you their blood is at least sort of on your hands (there's some blood on everybody's hands but there's blood on everbody's hands)

Good lord Pick, sometimes it sounds like you were made to get caught up in other people's emotional storms. I'm not ragging on you, but drat it must suck to keep getting stuck in those situations.

Sometimes it's hard to be honest. I'm glad you're honest with us here, Pick.


Unrelated, but:

IMO both guys and girls keep mental/emotional "wheelhouses" of prospective partners whether they're aware of it or not.

I got lots of dead friends too but it's mostly heroin's fault. As a friend to dead junkies there is definitely a sense of responsibility that can be pretty sad.

There are angels of death, and then

There are people that are attracted to the lonely, and then

There are people that are innately attracted to those closest to death

The closer you are the veil, the less veils you care to keep up.


Pick you're a buoy in a sea of desperate, tragic introverts and I wish you and your friends well despite the obvious harm so many suicides must cause within your social framework.
Nonetheless I'm gonna have to suggest you get the number for the national suicide hotline tattooed along your cleavage, just to be safe.

Yeah, I just lost a buddy of mine to alcohol a few months ago now. I was his last hope and he looked up to me because I had gotten sober about six years prior and we'd been friends for 15 years. I loving poured my heart and soul into that man for the last year of his life and it tore me apart inside to see him suffering. I had to dump him as a friend, the hardest thing I've ever done, about three months before he died. I told him I couldn't do it any longer and that nothing was helping any longer, so the only thing I could do was end our relationship so he knew how important it was to me that he get better. There was a lot of crying. I told him I didn't want the next time I saw him to be in jail or at his funeral. I regret that.

I did my best to get him apart from his codependent girlfriend, mostly for her sake. She has a good job and is a cool person, but it's easy to get wrapped up in your partner's poo poo. She wanted to get to know me, but I told her I couldn't, because I had to focus on her boyfriend. I felt lovely about it, but denying that friendship kept things a lot less messy. I still feel lovely about it, because now I can't really comfort her.

I was the reason my buddy began to attend group meetings, see a psych and get therapy. He started taking naltrexone to kill the booze cravings, he got on meds for his mental problems once he got diagnosed. He finally moved out of his girlfriend's house to look for a place to live.

He kept slipping up though, and it was at the point where he was having violent blackouts. That was a very new thing, and only started close to the end. I tried as hard as I did because he was starting to get the shakes when he didn't have booze for a bit, and he'd had some seizures too. The end was close.

Well, I hadn't heard about my friend for almost two months since I ed hard. Another friend of mine told me he had cleaned up, was going to summer classes at the local state university and living in the dorms. I was so happy to hear that, but I just kept on with my plan of not seeking him out for a couple years. A few days later, his mom called me and told me he died on campus. He died on the way to class in the 95 85% humidity heat.

The funeral was weird because I had never met his family, but they all knew who I was because my buddy would never stop talking about me. They said they were so thankful for me because I was the only one who ever seemed to get through to him and help him change. I'm still trying to not feel like a big failure. It's not my fault and I'm happy I could do what I did, but the old me, that self-loathing motherfucker, keeps whispering in my ear that I didn't do enough.

That's my dead friend story.
