    Usually when that happens to me it's because at least one of the things I'm playing really sucks and I'm trying to push myself through it anyway. If that's your issue, take the other anon's advice and take a break, but also make sure to just drop whatever the shit game is when you come back to it.

    When I play a bad game or see a bad movie I ponder giving up that hobby entirely.
    Then when I play or see something good I suddenly am reinvigorated and want to play tons of gsmes everyday. Until I hit another shit one

    A bit of both, I'd say. I've had my Steam account since I was 14. Now as an adult a lot of what I used to play back then just doesn't interest me anymore, if it's even playable still. (We LOVE sunsetting servers.)
    Picking up anything new just feels like a chore, especially if it wants me to:
    >make a new account for (one) game
    >buy a battle pass
    >play on a daily basis or miss content
    I'm just not built for that kind of thing anymore now that I have more important things taking up my time. I just want simple games I can finish at my own pace and be done with, not "forever" games.

        Maybe not so much "grew up with", but it definitely started getting commonplace when I was like, mid-way through high school. I remember getting peer pressured to buy cosmetics and shit in games that my old friend group used to play. I probably should've gotten yelled at over wasting money like that, but my parents were the type to just put a toy in front of me and frick off, so they didn't care/kind of enabled it. If I was any younger I'd probably have turned into a fricked up iPad goblin like my younger siblings.

    You don't "mature" out of video games. You might just be realizing you were never actually into them. You just did it because it was the current accessible way to make time disappear. Your parents did the exact same thing with TV, their parents with radio, and their parents with the newspaper. None of these people were passionate about any of these things, but they could get home from work, do the thing, and then suddenly it's time for bed, day after day after day.

        Im going no matter what, I'm tired of sitting inside all day. I'm too scared to even get a haircut.

        remember that, in 100 years, none of this will matter. we're all gonna die, and nothing lasts forever. if you're afraid you're gonna embarass yourself by doing something weird/autistic, just remember that people do not care about you as much as you do. they'll probably forget everything about you in a week or two.

        i know it sounds somewhat like "are you shy? well, just don't be", but it unironically is the only way to have fun and maybe get laid. i'm a turbovirgin in my mid 20's, i was absolutely hopeless when it came to socializing, but things are so different now. girls think i'm this macho men type, who had shitload of girls.

        Thing is, I'm so out of touch with what people talk about, even if half of my friends are normalgays. I don't know how to make myself appealing to college girls cause I dropped out the first year. Also, I used to be a bit built too but I kinda lost the weight and now im just average sized, if not a bit chubby.

          remeber that you don't need to be the center of conversation. just stay on the sideline, and try to intervene with a joke or something witty. it literally is the best scenario, you don't need to carry the whole conversation, like you would if you're just talking to somebody one on one. just don't be scared of talking when you feel you can say something funny. if it isn't, make another joke. if it's funny, the first one will be forgotten. trust me, i've made plenty of shit jokes, it isn't that much of a big deal. i've had this girl tell me that, even when she did not find the joke i made funny, she still giggled because i was laughing so convincingly at my own jokes, not in a clown-ish way, but a confident way.

          it really is not that hard, unless you're a turbo autist. just don't be afraid of people. please trust me when i say it, i was absolutely horrible with people. now, people are envious of me because i seem to be so comfortable in my own skin.

          >Also, I used to be a bit built too but I kinda lost the weight and now im just average sized, if not a bit chubby.

          i'm obese, doesn't matter. i am 6 foot 1, so i guess that saves me somewhat, but if i can do it, so do you, unless you're crippled or something.

            Im not turbo autist at all, I just wish I new how to start a conversation. Should I lie about my occupation and say that I used to be an animator or something? Also, I might have autistic interests but I'm normal outside of that thankfully.

            Honestly, I thought I was average height until I went to a bar during the super bowl and I had to look up at all the guys (not the girls though). Was kind of a harsh reality check. I might be short.

            This. Also if you are attention avoidant like me and the attention shifts to you, try to be funny and confident, then switch the attention onto other people.
            >Anon, what do you do for a living?
            >(confident) I sell video games by buying them up cheap and reselling for a profit.
            >(say something to make it sound serious) I've been following market trends for the past 5 years and can tell what may sell or not.
            >(insert facetious goofy comment) It is wild what people will pay for some games, like Pac-Man is worth what now?!
            >(switch focus) Anyways, do you guys play any video games too?
            At least thats how my socially anxious self works. It seems to get me by. People love talking about themselves which is where you can make connections. The 'How to make friends and influence people' book helped me a lot.

              The reason I'm hesitant to talk about my job is because I actually fricking hate resellers but I'm way too far deep in to quit - quit college because I was making so much (I live in a very rich area). I assume everyone else hates them as well. And I can't say I'm an artist because then I have to prove it by showing and then they will get weirded out. I'm usually good at spitting bullshit and making it sound better than it actually is but you can only lie so much.

        Honestly? I think you might be overthinking this, dude. The fact you got invited somewhere in the first place is a sign they want to be around you, isn't it? If you're going to a bar, maybe open with asking people what drinks they like or something. You start with questions that are simple and easy to answer and see how the conversation flows from there.

        True, maybe i'm just overthinking it. I don't usually think I have issues with socialization, but my life has just gone so downhill and I hate letting people see that.

    By age 18 at the earliest you were supposed to have:
    >a stable family environment
    >friends
    >an actual personality
    >a college or university and a career you knew you would enjoy and make money from
    >lost virginity
    This gives you goals, responsibilities, purpose. Devoting your life to vapid, fleeting trends and consumerism is what authors wrote about in dystopian novels but here its made reality. You just consciously chose to fail yourself and the rest of the human race by not living up to your potential. You may or may not have time to right this wrong, but more than likely its far too late.

      Okay boomer

      The reason I'm hesitant to talk about my job is because I actually fricking hate resellers but I'm way too far deep in to quit - quit college because I was making so much (I live in a very rich area). I assume everyone else hates them as well. And I can't say I'm an artist because then I have to prove it by showing and then they will get weirded out. I'm usually good at spitting bullshit and making it sound better than it actually is but you can only lie so much.

      I guess you can always downplay. Something like 'I resell things like video games for a short profit, and just keep doing that over and over. It takes a lot of research and time, but its enjoyable for me and keeps food on the table'.
      I don't mind resellers, but I don't like scalpers. The way I see it is:
      Resellers help get games to people who can't get to them, and make a profit in the process.
      Scalpers intentionally leech off the market and buy out stock that would have got to people normally (had they not intervened).
      Also resellers usually price their stuff fairly or around market value. Scalpers just don't care, they'll stubbornly sit on something way above market value because they'll know someone will eventually give into the high price.
