My business Administration degree is fucking worthless isnt it
Yes because you post on 4chan meaning you have no social skills / ability to network.
not necessarily. I got a degree in Film, and I thought that was useless for near 6 years. It took 6 years until I got a job in my chosen field, and I had to do a lot of freelance work in that time, as well as a lot of other strange jobs that had nothing to do with media production.

I don't know what kind of skills you learned specifically, but I encourage you to take what you can while continuing to search for what you want.

Godspeed you poor soul. I'm sorry everything is awful. The world is in a terrible place, and I hope you have luck and blessings in store for you.

I hate how this plays to my biggest insecurities.
I recognize it's bad, but I can't help but let my brain wander into that territory: I already missed out on teenage years, missed out on 99% of college (thanks COVID!) and now I bet I'll only find a partner when I'm like 33 or some shit

I'm a NEET in the Netherlands. For 6 years already. In the beginning I was depressed about it, because I had that feeling that I 'wanted to contribute to society'. That feeling is gone now. My life is a bit like that movie, Groundhog Day. Just one day blurring into another.

The strange thing is, I'm starting to enjoy it. Waking up whenever I want to. Checking my mail while drinking the first cup of coffee. And then? No obligations. I just put on my headphones, play some music and browse the web. And interact with you fine people. Everyother day I go to the gym to stay in shape. I have two close friends that I see regulary, and go to the pub sometimes. But I just really like to stay at home and chill.

To be perfect honest, I'm not trying to get my career back on track. Maybe I am not that ambitious? I like the life of not having to do anything. I just wonder if there are more anons like me out there?

I was a NEET for about 2 years. I got a job almost 2 years ago as well. I think I would rather be a NEET. I don't even spend my money. I'm so burnt out and emotionally numb from work. I havent felt excited about anything in forever. The only real emotion I feel is anxiety.

I'm not quite a NEET because dealing with the social services in any way (including through education) is like climbing to the tip of normie mountain in my country (which is probably the point). I surf on my savings that I get through the odd job that favors my disposition. Sometimes I help family friends etc. The freedom of self-imposed minimalism - no job, no friends, no gf, no obligations in general = very little to no expenditure - is something that I'm not sure I could ever give up. There are plenty of things that are not only posible to do for a price-close-to-zero, but even more enjoyable when done so, like any kind of outdoor activity, that instantly becomes an adventure with high stakes because of the level of self responsibility needed. I don't feel guilty at all. Most normies couldn't handle the way I live, sometimes I even suprise myself with the few times that re-entry was presented with open arms only to be defeated by my forgetting the opportunity - then it's been 5 years of total detachment, gone by like a few days. So I don't feel like I'm 'cheating,' On the contrary: I earned my self satisfaction fair and square by ritually paying my personal taxes to the void.
There's nothing wrong with that at all. It's your life to live. You're not alone in being like that, either. A ton of people do that.

To me, career success and marriage and all of that seems more like what the government wants so they can better exploit you. I mean you're not making that much more and you're doing a hell of a lot more work. Why force people to get married, either, when they hand out gobs of cash for children? Why not just let people hookup and single mothers be the norm? They're still getting paid.

Hopefully you have some personal goals in mind, even without career aspirations. Even if it's art or music or something.

I do have some career ambitions but mostly because I was tired of being broke. I actually learn stuff I like and want to get a career in AI or something like that because I'm interested in the subject. Being rich would be awesome, but I've been broke to the point of homelessness and even lived in a van for a while. Browsing the web and stuff is my hobby, too.

How do I cope with the fact that I might be dead (died in a car crash in the winter of 2019, late January, snowy road, lost control of the car in a curve, crashed on the other side of the road and an incoming truck MIGHT have crashed into me there and then) and this isn't real? This life, all my life since then basically is an illusion, an afterlife, and I might ACTUALLY be in hell, or some sort of bleak purgatory, as a matter of fact.
Things haven't been the same since, I distinctly remember it all going to shit since that day.

No. A lot of people dont grapple with whether or not theyre real to a point they need help. This isnt common at all. At best its something people ponder time to time but OP actually thinks its realistically possible he died in a car accident.

>shit doesnt seem consistent
Life is chaotic. Id be more concerned with too much consistency signalling a simulation than none at all.

This whole post is by 600 miles the best most accurate in this thread. OP had a traumatic experience and it caused some damage.
Dissociation and feelings of things not being real are very very common with traumatic experiences.
>op mature enoigh to know whats best
Hes in a thread full of internet incels who are best known for having poor grasps in reality asking if its legit possible he died and is in hell. No he isnt.

And frankly, the vast mass majority of people dont kkow whats hest for them. No one gets granted a magical expertise in mental health and treatment because they barely dodged an oncoming truck. That isnt how it works.
These bird brain glowie tier responses just proved that we are indeed in hell OP and behind enemy lines. you know it, I know it. This isn't a dream, it's a nightmare... AND I CAN'T WAKE UP. God does have a sense of humor
You really gotta self respect when you think reason is "glowie".
When you see someone saying "No it would not make sense that you died in a car accident and there is in fact an afterlife and it happens to be the same place again" and your first response is "clearly a government agent" its time to think really hard about where youre at in life..
If the current reality is not real, then you have no cause for concern. If it is real, then you have no more cause for concern than anyone else. If it were the afterlife, you would be dead and have no physical needs or body, in which case you probably wouldn't care or you would be powerless to change it. In any case, accept the circumstances as they are, since you cannot do anything otherwise.

what do i even do if i have mind broken anxiety? even the smallest thing like going to a store or a doctor gives me a panic attack and i shut down?

Intense physical exercise helped me with anxiety a lot. I always had very bad anxiety even as a kid and now it hasn't bothered me in years.
You get good at whatever you practice. Try practicing relaxation and calmness. Also try splashing cold water in your face, it activates your diver response which will instantly slow your heartrate.
You need exposure therapy. Get a job as a cashier and your problems will dissipate within weeks as you begin to realize how insignificant a single human interaction is.

Browsing the web in my computer its the only way I enjoy life, how do I cope being an internet addict?
stop it and do something actually fun. the internet used to be funny and cool but it's been shit for 10 full years now
I don’t even have fun. I spend all day raging at bait threads and internet arguments.
I went on vacation to an older family member's house with no computer and it really helped me conquer my internet addiction. I now go for hours long walks instead of just mindlessly browsing the web.
this isnt something from the actual game right?

HTGWG is by men, for men, about women. Anything related to getting (and dealing with) women goes here. All anons are welcome to ask questions from more experienced anons, share experiences, get a second opinion, and give updates on advice received. It doesn't matter what you're struggling with, we know how hard it can be, we got you brah.

>Topics discussed:
●Dating apps and texting
●Having sex and getting to that point
●Reading signals
●Getting and maintaining gf
New posters are encouraged to share their latest experience with women, be it an attempt to approach, a date, a cute girl from school, or just a girl you saw somewhere and thought was cute, but hesitated to go and talk to her. Also read the FAQ before asking questions.

Reminder that context is important. If you're asking for advice don't just ask 'This girl ghosted me, why?', we can't understand what your situation is like. Try to help other anons understand so they can help you, add as much (useful) context as possible:

Is it really true that highly attractive women aren't that much more difficult to get because most men are afraid to talk to them? Or just another meme..

I'm not a natural leader nor do I want to lead but I'm not a follower either and don't take no shit either. Where does that put me on the hierarchy?

Vox Day is a retarded loser for coming up with this as a coping mechanism, and you're even dumber for taking it seriously.
Why do male hierarchy rankings cause so much seethe on this site? Those and MTBI categories...I always see posters getting really mad about both of them for some reason.
The idea of naturally emergent hierarchies makes liberals uncomfortable so they lash out in frustration over the implication that their ideology won't give them total control of reality.

And I hate it. I tried finasteride and it didn't work, also made my dick limp. I tried other things like minoxidil, but to no avail. I looked into transplants, but my donorhair is shit and it could never give me the hair density I'd like. I guess I just have to accept it. But I don't know how. How do you deal with hairloss and have you come to accept it?

I got a hair transplant 3 weeks ago I think

I like the hairline he gave me, looks aggressive, mine was 1700 grafts mainly for the front hairline and areas behind the front on right and left

I'm shedding now tho so I'll be wearing a beany soon

I'm using minox and will apply topical dutasteride later on
>I like the hairline he gave me
Looks good! Can I ask who did the work and how much it costs?
There is nothing more vile than a male who is really insecure and vain about their hair loss.

Grow it long on the sides like a fucking dirtbag. If anyone ever teases you about it, you need to get a fucking erection. It’s a wonderful situation that someone cares enough to tease you and help you get over it. Or you could even joke about it yourself. But it can’t be like when female comedians joke about their pussy stench. It’s not a display of self-humiliation. It’s a display of what you’re really made of. It’s a display of “yes, I don’t have my hair, and whereas you would kill yourself, I get hard about it.”

Things like this just cannot touch you as a man… You need to derive pleasure from it and become so based about it that the guy who teased you can never get hard again because he knows he will never be you. If these things do bother, then a luxurious, thick head of hair would just make you a milky bitch, and if they don’t, then it doesn’t matter that you don’t.
I bet you still have your hair.
Yea, it was with Dr Cortez in Tijuana

Look em up on YouTube,there's plenty of client testimonials, one guy is called Thehairguy on YouTube, another one is called Brokekartel

turn off all your devices an hour before bed and read a book instead. The more technical the better, it'll force you into sleeping and in the future you become intrigued by the content (provided it ain't some difficult bullshit like "Das Kapital" by Marx)
Doomscrolling is a real addiction. Websites are designed that way. Try switching to social media platforms that don't have infinite scroll. Try using a blacklist on your computer to block social media. Set your hobby sites to your home page. Discipline yourself and do what you should be doing instead of mindlessly scrolling.

I do it too but I have 50 tabs open and do homework sometimes, bid on online jobs, read random stuff (lately about cooking), etc. I should be building a portfolio and programming but I haven't been.
You should really stop. I can't do much to convince you other than to share my own horror story.
I am in my 30s and have been on the internet since I was about 14.
I was a frail, small kid who wasn't developing as fast as the other boys, consequently I had zero female attention. One day I was introduced to Yahoo Messenger, it must have been 2002, and ever since then I was hooked. I could talk to bubbly, excitable girls my age. They had sound effects, colorful fonts, and funny emoticons. I never looked back. Here I am 2 decades later. The internet has obviously changed a lot, it doesn't give me joy anymore, but it's all I know. I'll keep doing this until I am old man. A life wasted on electronic ephemera.

Hilariously, I learnt this too late. I was born and had complications having to be placed in an incubator as I had too little oxygen. I have PDD-NOS, ADHD, and depression. Growing up, I had zero friends and at 24, almost 25 now, still have zero friends. My mother and father divorced and I had to move to a shittier 1950s house with my useless mother and selfish brother that has zero AC and is slowing falling apart because of the shit landlord who won't renovate or pay for fixes to the house while my mother pays rent using my SSI. I tried making friends online and tried going into online communities through Discord, but every single one either didn't actually care or banned me after I shared my feelings (just because they were negative, given the situation I'm in). I am trying to get a job so I can move the fuck out and not have to deal with my brother and mother anymore. In fact, just a few minutes ago from me typing this, my brother made me get up to check the time left on the dryer and made me grab him Double-Stuf Oreos (yes, because he's a lazy stoner and yes, the same guy who keeps bothering me in that other thread where I wanted somebody else to finish his music because he keeps fucking bothering me and it's driving me mental). I helped produce one mixtape already for my brother, which failed and made zero money, and he's purposefully forcing me to make another one by continuously bothering me. I'm currently in a cybersecurity program right now and got my CompTIA A+ and Network+, approaching finishing Security+, and still can't find a well-paying job that will finally make me move out because nobody will hire me. Worth noting, I pretty much acted as moral and on-rules as possible when I went to school, but still have zero opportunities now because I didn't grow up with a rich family. If I had a shitload of money now, I wouldn't be dealing with this, but that's why I'm trying to get through my program.

I'm 27 and I barely cum that much anymore. When I was in high school I remember shooting so much cum that it would come out in hot ropes and launch everywhere. I swear I could've gotten it on the ceiling. But today I can't cum more than a few drops and they just dribble out weakly, even if I don't masturbate for a whole week. Did this happen to anyone else or is there something wrong with me?

uuh, gona have to talk to your doctor. but are you really sure you are in good shape? if you are just average you might not be in good shape, you might want to consider getting /fit/ you dont have to be a roid tard or like super big, but the idea of ok and average is actually kind of shit and you might have just been shooting rope from just being young. but uh make sure you are getting your vitamins and minerals.

if you are fit and actually eating good, it might be because you are on medications if not you might have testosterone problems

but you are going to have to ask a doctor at some point

all we can say is take supplements that make you come harder and to make sure you eat right and are being /fit/ and do things like not drinking alcohol and eating sugar
See >>28590432
I lift, I run, I eat vitamins including D and Zinc, I cook almost everything I eat, I have fewer than 3 alcoholic beverages per week, I get 8 hours of sleep per night, I don't use nicotine or any drugs or medications at all except caffeine. I've been to the doctor and had my blood tested and they said I'm in good health, my cholesterol and everything they test for was good. I also had my testosterone tested and it was within the normal range. I have no doubt that I'm healthier than 90% of people my age.

I just want to know from other people on this board, how old are you and how much do you cum? As in, is there anyone here who's actually 27 and still shooting ropes, or is my situation normal?
Drink more water (Think a gallon per day), also try the "holy grail of cum" stack. Just google it.

Who slashed your side mate? Are you from South London?
For one, you're getting older. I'm 36 and there's days I can't even get a boner. You have to stop masturbating completely and you'll have more semen retention. Your body slows down, especially with the reproductive process, in your mid 20s and continues to decline for the rest of your life. We as animals are designed to mate in our teens and early 20s at the latest, hence all of the pimple faced 14 year olds pitching tents every time they see a chick bend over.

It's also possible that the government is drugging our food supply to slow our reproduction. They're clearly trying to blend in more groups, at least in Americuck, which is why interracial dating is praised and taught to be the norm. Transgenderism is also on the rise, and is MUCH more common in men than in women. the MTF to FTM ratio is something like 4:1.
