I have a upper-middle class upbringing, great parents, I am 6'3'' with no medical problems and am physically moderately attractive. I'm a creative person with respect to drawing and writing, and I enjoy quality cinema and am an intellectual enough of a dude to process the meaning behind setpieces and character actions in a film.

Does anyone have these qualities and just... wants to die for some odd reason?

For me there are two contributing factors:
>A) In highschool I fell in love with a woman who I thought was particularly interesting and she pretty much called me a creep and told me to get fucked when I told her. Though I admit to having her cross my mind every 10 minutes I maintain that I am not a creep as I am a pacifist who absolutely wouldn't force my will upon anyone and know very well to keep to myself.

>B) I have absolutely no future. None. I have a prepaid college fund that I am not going to do anything with. The shortest explanation I can come up with is that I do not work well in an authoritarian setting--- me paying to do non-creative writing for someone to grade me for is some seriously absurd shit. Non-creative writing is in itself an oxymoron as writing is an art.

I've been not wanting to really live for the above reasons. Romantic love that is not inspired by economic trade (basically goldigging) is a lie, and winners in this broken psudo-capitalist society being decided by merit are a lie.

I don't know if I am asking for advice, because the advice that I get is that I am every single creep who walked this Earth for still being beat up towards my unrequitted feelings after 8 years. The person who I fell in love with is completely gone from me as the bridge has been burned for several years now, and I feel like the equivalent of a lonely who man whose wife has long since passed.

It's not really that great of a feeling.

So, I know QQ is saturated of relationship/loneliness advice.
Instead I come to you and ask: Are there any good references for a read/watch that you may want to share?

Just some details, if it makes any diference:
I'm a boring weird dude in my late 20's, got """lucky"""(long story), got into a thing with a girl recently for my first time, but it's not going anywhere, i got money coming on a just comfortable amount, i'm not super in shape but i jog on occasion - so, what solutions do i have?

Simply don't be afraid to make the mistakes you will make.
Don't purposely make mistakes, but know that experimenting with
what makes you and her happy is always good.

Be nervous, be anxious, let yourself feel and be honest about your lack of
experience with dating.

You...don't have to be honest about everything... or rather, you don't have to
indulge embarrassing things right away.

Yeah, I kind of lean towards this. Obviously it wouldn't be as distressing to a guy in nearly the same way, but if they felt 1/10th as upset by it as I do (did! >>531006) I can't blame them for wanting to do everything in their power to correct it.

>I work out every day of the week and stick to a strict diet because I can't deal with the biological reality that my body wants to become fat and my legs want to atrophy because the reality of city living in a prosperous country means sugar is everywhere and leg strength is redundant in a sedentary world.

i would normally suggest Wellbutrin and ECA here but apparently that makes your hair fall out, go figure, but I also support this specifically as well, because as I mentioned in the thread, I've been on extreme, substance assisted cut that I started as soon as I fully realized what I'd eventually have to do in life. Went from 230 to 150 in a matter of less than 6 months. I pushed my body to its limit with cardio to lose fat and weight training to build muscle in its place. I remain completely undaunted as I slowly taper back up my caloric intake to not shock my metabolism while I continue to lose another 10-20lbs and learn to eat like a normal, healthy person while tapering down for the last time on supplements.

All this after YEARS of struggling with weight and eating, because size and weight have become important to me in a way they never were before

So I’m gonna start with my whole sad story and I’ll try to keep myself from going off on too many tangents to keep it short. I’ll put a tl;dr at the bottom because I say short meaning the short version of what I have to say- and I have a lot to say.

I’m not sure where to start, really. I’m bipolar as hell, been dragged from psychologist to psychiatrist to alternative school over and over throughout my child hood as I hid away in my computer. My parents divorced when I was 6 out of nowhere for reasons nobody really ever was honest about. My mom pulled the classic Oedipal complex and kept me away from all the social checks and balances I needed growing up. My dad was hardly around because of his job on top of the divorce. My little brother was effected by the divorce way more drastically and is still stuck in the terrifying state of a mamas boy with BPD.

I hid in video games throughout middle school and then drugs throughout highschool. I kept moving from social group to social group thinking this was what i needed to stop being a loser but I always ended up fucking a lot of people over and disappearing, once again isolating myself into sicker and sicker states. I went from a scrawny white kid playing minecraft to an awkward white kid smoking weed to a pale, tired kid drinking cough syrup before school, a psychotic borderline schizo kid with PTSD, to a jaded 20 year old with no future.

After getting kicked out of my first high school I ended up cutting off all my friends and my life consisted of cough syrup, weed, and driving my dealers around for money and drugs. After a while it was pretty clear that they could take advantage of me so I let myself be dragged around and made a bitch by intimidation and having little care for myself. Got guns stuck up to my head, blah blah blah. I finally wised up and disappeared on them just to end up being manipulated by another sociopath. And then one more.

By the time I finished high school I got PTSD for 4 different reasons. All of my grandparents died, my childhood dog died, my friend died of an overdose, my other dog got cancer, and I had psychosis from a mixture of drugs, trauma, and isolation. I’m still not sure if I’m done with it yet either. Sometimes I hear people screaming when I leave my fan on at night and get flashbacks to a bunch of snuff rape videos i came across when i was 15. Speaking of repressed emotional outbursts relating to female abuse, I somehow ended up with a girlfriend the year after and oooooh shit did this lead to some crazy things.

One guy had been having his friends sexually harrass her all year and I found out one kid tried to rape her the year before. So... I called up a psychopath that I’d promised myself I wouldn’t ever talk to again because it thought id learned my lesson from all the psychos before. But i didnt and called him up because i wanted to power of a crazy violent gang banger on my side. Long story short, someones car got broken into and a shit ton of stuff stolen, someones house has bullet holes in it and is now someone elses, im somehow not in jail by some miracle, the psycho threatened to kill me but then got arrested and locked up for years by another miracle, and now here i am some how alive.

So here I sit; I’m mourning my innocence, my lost loved ones, my childhood, my heart, my wasted potential.. and I’m stuck ruminating on revenge fantasies, terrible decisions that burden me with guilt, terrible things ive said, etc etc etc. I’m crying every night and want to quit my job and move away every day but snap out of it after a coffee and listening to my favorite songs. I flash back to terrible things I’ll never unsee randomly and I am constantly paranoid for myself, my girlfriend, and my loved ones for sometimes realistic reasons and sometimes just because of delusional paranoia. I have no idea how i became what I am but I hate it and wish I could go back. My IQ is ridiculous and I know I have so much potential in me but I feel overwhelemed by life constantly, have no reasonable path to go down, and have no way to go back from some of the things ive done to my reputation in this town.

Tl;dr my childhood was off, the internet and having no friends fucked up my head growing up, I can’t get alone with people, I fucked my head up even worse with reckless drug abuse, got traumatized and abused over and over, suffered psychosis, lost a lot of things I love, embarrassed myself constantly, put myself and everyone I love i…

The reason intermittent fasting works isn't because digestion takes so much energy, honestly both of you are just being dum dums right now. The reason IF works so well is because the restriction of carbohydrates (sugars in particular) lowers insulin levels so much.

Having higher levels of insulin effectively prevents people from losing weight and in particular burning fat as an energy source. IF is a sort of "hack" that involves utilizing a comprehensive understanding of how the body and metabolism works in a thoughtful and intelligent manner to produce effective results. As long as you actually know what you're doing and eat the right kinds of foods using IF, you can lose a lot of weight and be quite healthy.

I get it. You're probably never going to contact me again. Just know that I cared for you, gave you a place to stay, made you believe in yourself, and helped you get to where you are today. If I was really a bad person, I wouldn't have done any of that. I don't owe it to you to tell you any information about my personal life. You're a dishonest, heartless bitch and I regret ever trusting you. You ruin the lives of everyone you're a part of. You're a shit friend, a shit partner, and a shit mother. You should do the world a favor and successfully kill yourself.
If i ever got to day this to you, I'd regret it to end of my days, but even though i didn't pull the trigger, in my heart i killed you. Live knowing that you deserved to die and that you roped me into your madness. Live knowing that I have to dedicate my life to choosing never to think these things about another. What you were really was that awful, and you didn't let me leave until i became just like you.

I even tried wearing groucho glasses so they wouldn't recognize me and want to suck my dick, but the groucho glasses doesn't hide my really manly top model jawline, so I get sexually assaulted anyway.

What do you do about people who call you a liar when you call them out for bullshit? What do you do when you present proof, and yet are still called a liar because you can't reach the right people? How about when you're always willing to talk it out, yet they only seem interested in spreading lies to people who don't know you yet?

I mean I'm really just venting, but sometimes I just want to take a gun to gossipy people's faces if they wouldn't run in shame and guilt upon seeing me. I'd much rather just have a signed affidavit stating the truth.

How did you let yourself get betrayed by such a shitbag in the first place? Now that it's happened, taker it as a learning experience and get over it. There's not much use in dwelling on shit like this unless you particularly enjoy being miserable--that was more my point than anything.

i mean, I'm not unfamiliar with experiences like these, I just deal with them differently. I don't like being upset, and I like learning. I roll with the punches, change my actions (including future actions) accordingly, and move on. If anything getting emotionally distressed/involved so heavily in all of this is just feeding their ego or giving them attention they want. Not only are you giving them what you want, but it's making you miserable too. The choice here is pretty simple. Stop letting it bother you and move on, and fuck those people in the future.

Zero is a number and an integer.

There's nothing symbolic about non-being or non-existence unless you're talking about ego death. Non-existence doesn't negate something's previous or later existence. The Assyrian Empire existed, but no longer exist. You exist, but ten years before you were born, you did not.

No shit? Who's arguing against this? Yes, you existed--past tense. You no longer exist. Having existed and existing are not the same thing. Are you retarded?

Also fine, zero is a number, but it is not a quantity. That's my point. The number zero is a place holder. It is not a quantity in and of itself. Having a symbol that can function as a stand-in for the lack of a quantity has amazingly useful applications when it comes to manipulating values. You're being fucking dense.

So I've had this friend for awhile now. Dicked around as teens and fouled around with him, but in recent years he has done a lot for me. We've gotten pretty tight. Also in recent years he has got a girlfriend that I find pretty neat-O. Days ago he told me they were in an open relationship and we got down on each other. Since then I can't really get it off my mind, wanting both of them that is. I've always thought polygamy can work, but I don't know what to do.

I think I'm in good standing with him (not sure what could cause otherwise at this point), but the girl I don't get a chance to chat with much. She is nice enough to me. Sadly though her main experience with me was when I lived with them both and I had to masturbate from hearing the two of them. In other words she smiles and talks, but she has every reason to think me a creep. I've talked to him about it; doubts a polygamous relationship could happen. He also added that if I upset her, he would be. But he didn't straight say I couldn't work towards dating them.

The idea of even thinking about a relationship with someone you barely know and who currently thinks of you as a creep is pretty unreasonable. This is pure fantasy. The guy enjoys fucking you sure but a three way relationship will require actually building a relationship with this woman first before having any idea of whether it would be a good idea or not.

In short, wank all you want but you're going to have to get to know this woman first. You're getting way ahead of yourself.

Could you say more about what makes you want to be in a relationship with the two of them? Because right now you didn't say much beyond wanting to have sex with both of them

yeah... I haven't been with a girl so you could imagine.
I'd like to know her better as much as I do think she is fine. She has interesting interests too; she is an artist plus I like her taste in music. Overall I think you could call her a weeb, and that's pretty cool.

But, back on the situation, he is the one I told due to feeling bad about it. Had about the same reaction as you. He also has stated that it wasn't that big a deal. She is on the same page apparently, though she has me blocked on Facebook (that was a couple years ago when it happened). I hangout with as least him everyday, so about everyday I see her. Sadly she keeps to herself a lot. I don't think it has to do with me either. She is just quiet. We tend to go out together a far amount too. She doesn't shy away from tagging along, and we all have fun.

I met a nice girl recently and things have been going well. Thing is her dad is recently quite ill with the return of cancer.

I want to be supportive without crossing the line of using her dad's illness as a way to get close to her. It wouldn't be my intention but it's hard not to feel a little weird about it as she's in a vulnerable state and it seems obvious that she'd be grateful for help. Maybe I'm overthinking things.
Anyway, advice on how to be supportive of someone with an ill parent would be good.

Ohhh yeah it completely just didn't register to me that "met a nice girl" obviously meant "started dating" and not that you literally just met someone randomly which is the only way I would use that phrase ok I'm dumb

I mean if you're already dating her I think it's different. I don't think you should feel bad unless you think "I'm building a relationship, this is great, she's mine" while her dad dies of cancer like a sociopath.

Dealing with terminal illness of a family member is incredibly hard and I think she really needs you right now, so honestly try to just take a break from thinking about it for a while, and focus I guess more on her instead of your relationship for the time being.

To me, the fact that you feel bad about it means that you probably have no reason to feel bad about it, if that makes sense.

What is the meaning of life if you are not exceptional in any way, if you do not look exceptional, if you do not have exceptional talent, if you were not born in a unique place, you don't have any unique skills, and you don't have a bigger goal in life?

Life has no meaning, but as long as you are alive, you can try to make it better. There is no guarantee you will make life better, but without accepting the idea that you have to try to make it better for it to ever be better is key.

What should I do ?

iI's not that you're sad. The worst thing is the complete lack of motivation. It's useless. You don't want to eat, you don't want to sleep, walk, work, watch movies. Literally nothing. So you often end up staring at one point without even thinking about anything (at least that's how it is with me).

I feel that I am not helped by medicines, psychiatrists, psychologists, motivational speakers, etc. In general, a strange belief that a psychologist is able to get to know my psyche better than I am during a short conversation and convince me to choose life. Can they read minds? I have no idea why doctors turn into such alpha and omega doctors. I think that I know myself best and going to psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists is a waste of time and money. These people are only… people. They will serve me their standard speech, ask me questions that I could have come to myself if I had just thought about it and tell me what I already know very well. Most of us know the answers to the questions they can ask us and can imagine what we will hear during such a conversation with a psychologist or a psychiatrist. Nothing new, nothing we don't know. Nonsense about them offering me a new perspective and turning back from a depressing path can be put between fairy tales. If you are a man who thinks about his life and knows himself well enough, psychiatrists with all their talk become useless. I know all that they can tell me. The problem is that I can't apply this knowledge. It is like listening to a logical and rational argument and when a part of you nods your head that "yes, right, you are right! The texts about talking on the phone support line don't convince me either. Depressed people don't really want to talk to the receiver, to strangers, because most of them are so closed in themselves that they'd rather hang themselves on a dry branch than talk to strangers about their problems. "Talking is a myth. You will tell someone about your problems and what? What will it actually change? The problems will still remain the same, the weight will be lighter for a minute, and then it will come back with a doubled force, because the truth is that we are always completely alone in the end.

I feel that with age man simply becomes limestone, I see it particularly clearly in myself. The world ceases to be so interesting, fascination and enthusiasm slowly fade away, man becomes lazy and boring. Even the vision of premature death due to junk food, drugs or illness does not seem so terrible anymore, because when life would be colorful and interesting, one would like to use every moment of it, and so it does not matter whether we exist or not, because on our place in the social machine after our departure will immediately insert a new cog. And inside you feel small and lost in this world.

Why do I need any life at all to consist of walking every day to work that I do not like, coming back from work, killing time with something that neither develops nor pleases me, walking to sleep and getting up in the morning to work. I wouldn't call it life…. rather "vegetation". I'm still afraid that I won't achieve anything in life and I'll experience it as if I've never really lived.

>Jumping off a platform trying to reach another distant platform and smacking your face and busting your teeth out legitimately trying to make it to the other platform hurts a lot more than expecting not to make it in the first place and bracing yourself to hit the ground below you.

My experience is that giving up isn't easier, you still suffer but you have the shame of quitting. Expecting the worse doesn't help because you're less likely to get a positive outcome and then when you're right it's even worse. Being positive isn't expecting good outcomes, it's knowing that failing is okay. That when things go wrong if you don't just wallow you can limit the damage and recover more and learn more about avoiding the same outcome. The real smart money is that after the first incident you recover as many teeth as you can then you buy a gumshield. Maybe practice your jumping technique a bit somewhere safe. But the defeatist who doesn't expect to suceed doesn't do those things because there is no point. They make the same half arsed attempts and so rather than ending up landing on that better platform they just get cuts and bruises every day.

The truth is that giving up is easier. it's not better, and in the long run it's actually not easier. But right now in the short run it's less effort and discomfort. In a few months when your life isn't improved noticably you're worse off every day than if you tried (because the benefits offset that effort and you end up stronger/carrying less of a burden) but right now it's easier.

I wasn't being clear enough I guess, but that was actually my point. I was saying that from the perspective of the OP. He's totally given up attempting to get better because it's easier for him that way. The only logical choice, and in this case, the best choice is to keep trying and to quit having such a ridiculously cynical defeatist know-it-all attitude.

My point, to summarize, was that OP is choosing stagnation and misery willingly. He's decided there's no way to get better, and in doing so, has ensured there actually is no chance he will get better.
