      There are millions of friendless pieces of shit who would rather form parasocial relationships with streamers
      and watch games being played rather than finding friends to play games with.
      Why is this?

        Face to face socialization is what life is all about and comes naturally.

          If you are in college it makes sense to find friends to play games with. Its easy with that many clubs and activities.
          Outside of college its exponentially more difficult as everyone is locked into their own life. You could maybe find a friend in a multiplayer game but most will turn out a negative experience.

                  Physical labour exercises the body and releases chemicals to make you feel good. Sitting in an officecuck chair all day filing reports just makes you feel like shit.

                    While I would apply this logic on exercises and light labor, I wouldn’t think that working in a fast food job is actually anymore fulfilling than working in an office.

          It’s more than just internet stuff. Their entire culture is different. I was doing a walk up flu shot event with some zoomers. The old lady nurse who was coordinating was setting up the tables/supplies so I started helping her. All the zoomers just sat and watched as this 70+ year old woman waddled around setting shit up for them. And we live in the south.
          Even as a grown man, my mother would have found a way to beat me half to death if I did that.

        TikTok, instagram and other similiar social network cancer. It’s the complete opposite of our anonymous interaction and the forums of yore, where people debate and ridicule on the razor’s edge, beyond the scope of the popular opinion with no regard to personal admonishment nor achievement.

        Instead, these zoomers follow the popular trend chasing clout under their own name and face for everyone to see, without any thought or reason behind their actions. Only able to react and follow.

      Are people who are introverted defective people?

      I’m more introverted myself, but it seems strange to me that despite the fact that humans are supposedly social creatures, there also happen to be people who find socialising to be a tedious chore. To say nothing of the fact that all of modern culture is set up to gaslight people into thinking that not liking socialising is abnormal.

      It also seems like introverts are able to socialise with other introverts just fine, but they also find that talking to a more extroverted normie feels like talking to an alien.

      Seriously, why do we even exist? Are we just mentally ill or something?

        the world has changed. Our biology no longer reflects what is going on around us, our instincts and drives are out of date and we do not have millions of years to wait for them to catch up. Humanity as it is right now has the ability to uplift themselves, but society as it is right now would never allow that to happen. We are dangling between two extremes and getting the worst of both worlds.

        Have you ever actually listened to two "normies" under the age of 40 have a conversation before? If not I highly suggest that you do because you’ll feel infinitely better about yourself. I’m convinced most people don’t actually have thoughts, they just regurgitate things they heard on the internet without actually understanding it, or the conversation amounts to "Did you see the popular media on television? I rather enjoyed it" "Yes I too enjoyed the popular media on television"

        People want the recognition and the "pay off" for having done something without having actually done it. The thing is, once you’ve told someone your brain gives you the reward and then you lose motivation to do it in the first place. It’s very counter-productive. Also actually doing the thing usually leads to a worse result than imagined. Never doing means never failing and never having to accept that you suck. But accepting you suck is the first step to not sucking.

      I’m a weirdo. On one hand I would like to have a partner, a gf. But on the other hand I absolutely loathe to be around people. I don’t hate people, I actually like some of them and I don’t wish them ill, but I simply hate being around people and try to get away from them whenever I can. I’m always anxious and tense in social situations and go completely empty headed, having no idea what to say or how to react. The weirdest thing is that it fluctuates from time to time. There are periods where I’m more socially competent that last a while but after a while I’m back to complete social retard and repeat.

      It’s easier to be more selective in forming parasocial relationships. You can find someone who you feel like you really relate to, who has the same interests or tastes as you. Friends are circumstantial, you just had to be in the right place at the right time, you had to find someone who was willing to put in the effort to be a friend. None of those things necessarily make them closer with you

      Friends grow apart as we change and finding new friends is difficult, especially ones that may share our new views. But finding a new streamer is easy, there are millions of people putting themselves out there, you just choose one and try. I’ve noticed streamers are the first ones to get triggered about the idea of parasocial relationships, while exploiting them for their own benefit. This is kind of sad and can be hurtful. It’s a part of human nature, there are obvious motivations and benefits. Would you really prefer people just feel alone? It’s time people got over their hangups with this and accept it.

      Social media created a world where your social value is quantified, now instead of discovering themselves and being spared the reality of the social hierarchy kids immediately know whether they are a loser or not from the moment they have access to a phone. If your value is low then anonymous socialization is the best you’re going to get.

      I haven’t played a single multiplayer game that’s not a phone game since politics became so polarized. Call me based, but I truly don’t believe anyone on any multiplayer game is a human anymore they have to be robots there is no reason for people to either be so bad at the game or have such extremist views living in the comfort of their own home with food, drink and porn at their disposal every day. You are all robots and here is your sign that it would be based as fuck if you killed yourself right now.

      I usually won’t play competitive games with my friends anymore.
      I literally lost friends over League of Legends and in R6 Siege a long time ago because I was the highest ranked person, and everyone I was playing with was really bad. It was terrible for me because unless I played god-like every game we’d lose and all they would do is whine and bitch at each other even though they were all terrible. I ended up telling my R6 friends to basically fuck off and never played with them again because i was so sick of carrying their dumbasses while all they did was scream and whine at each other.

      Competitive games against friends are fine, but it seems like nobody really focuses on that shit anymore unless they’re a smash-fag, and usually those types of people are insufferable.

      who coined ‘parasocial relationships with streamers’ because that’s a phrase that is starting to become more used, just like any of the buzzwords and the statement of ‘heat death’ of the universe
      single word buzzwords are fine but I only ever here certain entire phrases on Ganker; someone of status must be saying them and anons must be parrotting them from somewhere.
      I have quite literally not heard anyone describe anything as ‘parasocial’ outside of this site. I’m not saying it’s wrong, it’s just interesting to see this seemingly materialize out of thin air.

      Outside of my BMX friends, I dislike everyone. Even my BMX friends wouldn’t be my friends if they sucked at the sport. I’m totally cool with Parasocial shit.

      The world is fucked, kids stay indoors all day. I worry about my 11 year old niece just starting to walk to school on her own when I used to be out all day when I was like 9-10.
