Everyone my age (24) knows how to have fun except for me. On nights out they can laugh and dance and get up to Currrazy antics, but I'm so stiff and boring
I'm not witty, I don't know how to dance, laughter makes me nervous because I was bullied and laughed at a lot as a teenager, I can't be spontaneous and fun
How do I be fun?

Jesus, you girls are lucky to be born with a vagina. If a guy was as useless as you are, OP, he would've already been told to kill himself.
OP you're either a troll or need to get off 4chan.
top fucking post. OP you'd better take this gentleman's advice
Lol literally the most useless board on the site. If I wanted real advice, I'd be asking /sci/, /lit/ /an/, /out/ and /diy/. Not you.
Yes, I always go to professionals in the field and not a bunch of shmucks like you guys. :^)
After about 3 to 6 threads of asking stuff on /adv/ you understand perfectly that this board isn't exactly the brightest tool in the shed.
I really suggest to visit one if your insurance covers it. Or talk to your parents. Even neighbours.
Sorry, mate. Real or fake advice. Won't heal your autismo.
>>18159850 >asking /sci/ about relationship advice
Not all advice fits on those boards, also not everyone has the same problems as you. (from the boards you listed it's probably homework for you)
This board has actually helped me, or at least has given me some kind of emotional support. (although my problems aren't that bad)
Anyone /g/ here?
I want to upgrade my computer, and my budget is around 1000 USD.
The problem is that i'm honestly not sure what to replace, considering how some parts are from early 2013 and some are more recent, because i'm too retarded to save up and upgrade the entire thing and will probably make the same, retarded mistake here.
I'm currently running a rig with these specs:
ASUS P8Z77-LX2 motherboard
i7 3770 3.5 GHz CPU
ASUS 780 Ti GPU
16GB 2133 MHz DDR3 RAM
Silver Power SP-S850 PSU.
I usually play games like ArmA 3, so I'm honestly wondering if the CPU is way too weak, considering how replacing my 660 Ti with a 780 Ti made no huge FPS difference.
I also play more graphics intensive games like For Honor, Fallout, The Witcher 3 and the EFT alpha (and many more), so I don't want to completely neglect the graphics processing power, unless it'll do for another year and if my CPU is bottlenecking the full potential of my 780 Ti.
You probably already realize that I'm not the most knowledgeable guy around, considering I don't even know if VRAM is just texture and asset storage or actually affects gameplay, nor can I tell which component is bottlenecking.
I'm not fully retarded, so I can easily assemble a computer, I just don't know what would be the best to upgrade.
Maybe I should just save up and get an entirely new computer instead, which is why I've come here, I need your input.
Guide to upgrade:
1. Does my game i want to play runs good enough?
>yes no upgrade
2. Buy new graphic card. Currently i suggest you
geforce1060 / RX480 if poor
geforce1070 if not that poor
or you can go full retard and buy better
3. Does my game runs good enough now?
>yes stop buying other stuff
4. Figure out if anybody in the world can even play that game without problems
>yes, only me has problems
5. Buy new mobo, cpu and ram.
Since you have i7 and ddr3, you can buy new cpu and ddr4 and see 5% increase in performance of gaming terms. Yes the technology slowed down a lot.
Just get new GPU and be happy.
Your computer specs sound quite fine to me. I can run games with High-Ultra High settings with my old Clevo laptop from 2011, which has considerably crappier graphics card than your computer has.
You might have too many unnecessary background processes going on. You can disable those you won't need by running services.msc, or use a program like Game Booster or Razer Cortex to shut them down temporarily while playing.
Also make sure your graphics driver is up to date!
On my tower PC I have my operating system on SSD and keep games on HDD.
The thing is that I play a lot of CPU intensive games. I'm just worried about the bottleneck. Had it not been for that I would already had bought a 1080 Ti.
Your resolution has to be considerably low though, I don't think a PC from 2011 would run any game nowadays on Ultra settings with 1080P and get solid 60 FPS.
I've looked into getting an SSD to boost my load times actually, textures render a bit slower. You can literally see how the textures get more clearer, although that isn't exactly a long process or something i'm bothered by.
Question, can you keep the OS in an SSD in a PCI slot? Or do I have to use SATA cables (and buy an SSD with SATA slots?)
I've already disabled most of the unnecessary background processes, thanks for the advice though.
Go see benchmarks of games. The gpu power is like 4x more power than your gpu. In cpu? Almost 0 difference in games.
And about arma. It is one of these games which runs badly on almost all hardware. And please dont buy the most expensive gpu unless you swim in money. It is never worth it.
I see. Thanks for the advice.
Any tips on how to talk to people who you're interested in? I always fumble my words and sound like an autist Picture unrelated.
IMO, it's much easier striking up a conversation based on some common ground that you have with a girl. e.g. goofing on one of your mutual friends. "lol, did you hear what ___ did at ___?" then afterward you can take the convo where you'd like
Just keep poking them with your finger and each time yell "DEH!". Wait until theyre wet from this sudden alpha male behavior and you can have sex with your wand.
This guy thinks I'm a feeder because I talk about food a lot. But I just like food and I'm a curious person about people's diets etc
Anyway, I've never really gotten rid of this perception and he asks me weird questions like do you want me to be a pig and I'm going to fill myself up for you and things like that
What should I do?
Report intentional feeding
ff @ 20
He could just be teasing you. Sometimes people give soft-tells about their kinks and it's fun to push buttons. But if you're completely fucking wrong, then it's like whoops. If that's the case it's really easy to get him to cut the shit. Just be like "Seriously that isn't even remotely related to my real fetish...". Whether you have one or not he will start trying to figure out what it is and abandon the fat thing.
The other option is that he is projecting and really wants you to be a feeder. In which case, abort B)
You know as well as I do volvo doesn't give two shits about that.
Well, does that kind of stuff intrigue you? Even the slightest?
Alright so I just set up a date with this girl for Monday afternoon, but do I still keep texting her before then?
Like should the conversation go
>wanna go here at time o'clock?
>okay see you then!
Should I keep the conversation going or just end it with "see you then!"? Or should I change the subject after the confirmation?
I'm new to this dating garbage
Yea dont go into past stuff like that now. Save it. Just meaningless, but funny stuff for now.
p.s. captcha youre killing me again, you FUCK.
shit I was too nervous about running out of things to talk about on the date so I just dropped a "awesome sounds good, see you monday!"
hope I didn't fug it up
Then own up to that fact and see her on monday. She will probably think youre doing all sorts of cool guy business during the weekend.
If you already set the date, do not text her and wait to see her on Monday. If you have not finalized the date, time, place do that then stop texting. If she texts you, you can reply but give it a little time and keep it simple. Some anon posted some pretty good text pointers but I didn't save them. You have the date, don't ruin it by being a needy pestering texter.
alright thanks fellas I appreciate the help
Where do I find an introverted gf at uni?
It seems all of the girls I meet are outgoing and to be honest pretty superficial.
If not uni, anywhere else?
Yea, you need to contact the leader to join. Obviously you need to disguise yourself as an introverted girl, so be ready to buy a black wig and some shirt that doesnt quite fit. The leader can usually be found on the rooftop of your uni. Take your lunchbox with you and go there(note: as a girl!) and try to initiate conversation with the leader of IGC. If the conversation is introverted enough then she will suggest you to join. Enjoy.
Attend physics or math lectures. If there's a girl, she might suit you.
>>18159836 >attend lectures where there are 99 other guys vying for the one girl's attention
Campus library. 99% chance of finding one
That's where you come in! Show the girl that you are true and honest gentleman. You need to tell her that you are looking for a boyfriend-free girl to be your beloved sweetheart. Bonus points if you give her a medallion to show your affection.
My wife is rather protective of our son. He's 10.
She acts like every bush has pedophiles lurking behind them, there's a conspiracy to kill our kids with gluten, video games are all "Hatred" tier, and that he needs full helmet & pads to ride his bike.
Personally I think she'll turn him into a sheltered little bitch. How much protection is too much?
You just need to sit your wife down and explain to her that bread has been a staple in the human diet on every country in the planet for thousands of years. Just because in the last 10 years someone said gluten is bad for you doesn't mean that suddenly all of civilization (much of which was built on gluten) will collapse because you ate a loaf of bread.
Rome has saying Bread and spectacle
Easy there pal, I'm just defending the helmet wearing as that's a legal issue in some areas.
>Not playing video games makes your son weak
Lol whatever man. OP is just as much to blame though since being silently is just consenting and these things hardly happen overnight.
Too much is when you do more than give advice.
Best parenting is just laying down what goes and what can go on in your house and your things and offering your own warnings about what your kid wants to do. That way one day they may see or do something retarded you called out and go like "shit my parents were right" and really follow your advice.
Have dad time where you two secretly watch ultra violent 80's movies, anime, JoJo, Vidya , etc. while wife isn't watching. Take son to gym after school and make him lift. Inject cynicism about everything.
Rather than make a big long post, I'll keep this short.
There's a girl who's interested in me, but I don't feel anything towards her. In fact, I don't feel anything towards anyone, so it's not her fault. I've never had a GF in my 27 years, and I never really wanted one because the whole affair sounds like it would just be annoying. This girl and I kinda went on a date last night. I think. We saw a movie together and just sort of hung out for a bit after in my car.
Frankly, I just wanted to leave. Like, it sounds terrible of me and it probably is, but that is just me. Normally, I'd probably just ghost out of the whole thing, but she's a friend of a friend.
I'm sure I sound crazy. Maybe I am, but I don't know what to do.
I'm not that guy you were asking, but "It's not you it's me" is pretty cliché, so much so that I personally view it as a worthless statement because its so vague as to the persons true intention of breaking things off.
Its like the go to statement for most people if they want to break shit off with somebody but don't want to tell them truthfully why.
You're probably better off telling them that you struggle with relationships. Although, I don't know your situation like you do. You may consider how such a statement would affect your other interpersonal relationships.
If I say that I struggle with relationships, then there's a good chance they'll try and say "lol it's cool we can help you through it" which is really not what what I want at all
>>18157700 >"It's not you it's me" is pretty cliché
You're right, and I've put other clichés there as well, but if OP don't want to fuck things up he has to be careful and say such a thing but in a veiled way. Talking about one's own personality problems is basically one way of saying "It's not you it's me", I think.
Thank them, then say things are not so simple as they think and that you don't care so much about your own problems, that you can still go on living and do things. If they insist then you can say that helping you getting through it is a job for a psychiatrist, that if they laymen try to force you into relationships or habits they will just fuck things up.
Yea, maybe. I don't know. I still haven't responded because I don't want to talk about it, and I really don't have to, either. If I'm being perfectly honest, the balance in weighing at the moment is if not dealing with all that is worth losing a gaming group. That's it.
If I have any advice for you its to let the girl down easy in a way like
says. As for your friend, I would just be brief with him and let him know that the date really brought out a lot of things that made you realize you're actually not really ready to be in a relationship with anybody right now. You can layer this any number of ways "she's a nice girl, really pretty" etc and if they're good friends they'll be understanding about it and not pursue it further.
Eventually this is going to come full circle and thinking you're keeping the peace by not talking about it is going to make it worse in my opinion, but maybe you have more information that we don't know that allows you to make that call with conviction.
I know it's a hassle OP because I've been in this situation before and I'm a lot like you. It's easier to just think of this as one of those things you have to do to get by ,same as anything else.
Ok so my eyesight is not that great.
I have trouble reading small writing more than a few meters away.
I realize i should get glasses but I am too poor to buy them and will be for at least 6 months.
Is it a bad idea not wearing glasses ? Will my eyesight worsen considerably not wearing them ?
I spend a lot of time infront of a computer screen is there anything I should be doing to not worsening my eyesight.
Or should I definitely get glasses no matter what.
>>18158890 >Is it a bad idea not wearing glasses ? Will my eyesight worsen considerably not wearing them ?
Not really, not really.
1. Get a prescription for your eyesight. (don't know how that works in your country, just make sure you get the cheapest obviously)
2. Try different frames on any glasses shop, find one that fits your face the best. (google guides on face and glasses shape)
3. Order models similar to the ones you liked on cheap online stores (like zennioptical, eyebuydirect or warby parker).
It's the safest way to buy glasses, no incorrect prescription, not something you don't like, and something not so expensive.
>>18159808 >I realize i should get glasses but I am too poor to buy them and will be for at least 6 months.
This, your insurance likely covers an exam. Just ask for the prescription and get some $15 pair on the Internet.
