Have you ever doubted if there is value in spending time on internet conversations with strangers?
Do you really feel like it's worthwhile?


Sometimes I doubt it, but then I wonder why. It's not like I feel like the connections I have in real life are better. Those conversations I have never feel meaningful. The internet at least lets me talk to people with no filter just because they can hide behind a screen. What about you OP?

I like you guys. I've been looking for an imageboard with good people for quite a while and I think I found one. I don't wanna be anywhere else, I don't wanna be a normalfag. I love my life now. Sometimes it gets very lonely, but it's a subsiding feeling.


For much of my life, I have spent it on the internet. In the last few years, I got a bit sick of being a recluse and being depressed, so I decided to attempt to be normal. I made friends, I had social hobbies, I learned to have interesting conversations, I make myself look nice. For the first time in my life, people liked me.
But I missed it. I missed my online friends, the forumns, the inside jokes, the edgyness that people don't like to touch. The lockdown brought me back to my former days, reading manga and surfing through link after link. Chatting with strangers and drawing not for money, but just for fun.
I love to make content for this site, I feel whole doing so. Some people are mentally meant for this sort of thing. Imageboards are places where I can talk about keeping dead things in jars and spending 3 days watching an obscure cartoon not moving and drawing weird garbage all day without people thinking thats weird. I can talk about whatever. really, and no one takes in my image or identity.
It's good stuff, its not wasted at all, fren. I think I was meant for sites like these, and so were many people who come here.


>Those conversations I have never feel meaningful
Same in a way. I really value my irl friends, however with one exception the conversations we have are often a bit empty. I enjoy my time with them, but sometimes I feel like I wish for more
I'm a creative type. Being part of a band or something like that would be my dream, but that requires skill, which requires effort and dedication; I don't have that
I'm happy for you anon! This place is nice
That's interesting, thanks. Personally I had the luck to meet irl people who could appreciate an edgy meme
Anonymity helps me with posting but it doesn't prevent all my mental-social problems. I guess sometimes I grow tired of interactions, even in this form, and yet my loneliness and boredom push me to it over my limit
I'm not sure, I'm a bit sleepy now
>I love to make content for this site
Same. Making stuff is fun. When other people get involved it gets even funner. That's what I like the most about imageboards in fact

Well, I guess I'll put limits on my time spent on online forums for now. I've done it before but I somehow always end up breaking them


No way in hell i could carry out a normal conversation irl, too autistic and other issues, the internet and therefore 22chan's perfect to me.


I sometimes doubt talking on the internet is worth it because I am still talking to humans. Yes, you will likely get friends, but sometimes these friends will be distracted. In other words, if your online friend gets preoccupied, communication will be sparse or end.


Not really, people on the internet are more honest and caring than people irl. Showing care or any other sort of those emotions is almost taboo, especially for men, on the internet nobody asks and nobody cares about that, people are engaged in the conversation and can overcome pretty much all social boundaries.


I really value the feel of the perfect online communities. Doesn't really replace irl friends for me (although thanks to Corona internet friends and irl friends are basically the same thing now), but only having irl friends without any real community is also super depressing.
