      I looked back on my first ever topic here. I posted it back in 2018. Three years later, I still don’t have a girlfriend. :(

      I really felt lonely yesterday and today. I still feel sad I don’t have a girlfriend and I don’t know how to change my situation. :(

      I wasted nearly a whole day trying to get past Anor Londo in Dark Souls. I can’t get any of the life I lost back. :(

        Instead of calling it a waste, you could try thinking of it as an investment.

        Only thing to do would be hang out with gaming friends & talk about a day where Dark Souls kicked your ass. I'm sure everyone else has had a rough go of it too; some games are difficult!

        I managed to finally break down the wall I kept hitting and hurting my hands with! However, I am going to take a LONG Dark Souls break.

        Sorry you had that. I did once - felt close to death. I’ll never get food from fast food places again. Won’t risk it.

        @Markness Was it food from some commercial establishment? Or home made? Was it same kind of food you guys normally eat ? Or something new?

      I asked my friend if she knows any single women, especially since she knows more people than I do.

        Have you read The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles? It's not just about being rich in money, but about how to get anything you want. It's the basis of much of today's self help milieu. It's a free pdf. Google it.

        You learn to march to the beat of your own drum. Accepting that it's unlikely that we "fit in" much of anywhere. And that it may not matter as much as you perceive.

        You were doing pretty good there for a little, it looked like, and then hit a snag--I'd say either go back and keep keeping on (and not let them run you out), or start looking around for more people as well in some more in-person gatherings

        The former is passive aggressive to me and the latter has excommunicated me.

        @Streetwise, yeah kids online have been referring to parents as 'rents' for some time; and yes, there is the musical (which I've never seen.)

      @tree go to the urban dictionary and type in renting it's a revelation when you see what the word rent is used for

        Yes, urban dictionary definitions frequently are rude /sexually oriented.

        Your second brain, is operating you at the moment, psychologists call panic the 2nd brain because it encompasses kidneys, the digestive tract, the lungs, the heart, the brain, the urinary tract, but it acts differently from when you are not panicking, the second brain cannot perceive a lack of danger

        It's relative what they consider intellectual is different from what you consider intellectual

        Oh, no. I thought renting would have the same connotation as checking out items from the library.

        Rent is when you pay to use. Here the library in the next county charges people to take out books....if they don't live in that county.

        You could go in a hazmat suit. Being cautious, and looking like you're doing a cosplay. Double bubble.

        The seasons changing are hard :( Especially if you live in a place with very distinct seasons. I get depressed in the winter too. Sometimes it helps to get up early and make sure you get some sunlight :) Not a cure, but it helps.
