Name?

This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

The realization that you would probably be a lot happier (or at least reasonably happier) if you had reached out more when you were younger and been at least moderately more socially active and that there's little you can do now is always a fun one.

>there's little you can do now
There is plenty actually, it's just harder due to social factors and the effort of breaking a routine.

this
what you did in your youth is really not always as important as people make it out to be.
In fact the friendships you (potentially) make in your youth are the ones most likely to fade away simply because when you're young you're still finding out who you are/what you like and you could grow to be very different than your friends at the time.
Also there are a good number of ways to make friends as an adult, it just takes some pushing through social anxiety.
and don't underestimate how valuable online friends can be, too. They can very much be real friends just like IRL people.

Well ok, I realize it's a little bit of an exaggeration. I just feel like being shy almost literally my entire life caused me to miss out on a lot of social opportunities.

>>42085058
For the last several years, it feels like my life has been plagued by regrets, missed opportunities, and what-ifs.

That kind of depends
>and don't underestimate how valuable online friends can be, too.
Trust me, I don't. I definitely recognize the potential for online friendships, and always have.

By the way OP, I don't mean to hog the spotlight, I figure this might apply to you as well. That's the only reason why I posted it, to relate.

Well yeah, but as much as I am prone to reflecting, isn't that water under the bridge we gotta let go and be bygones to move on?
Don't get me wrong, it's exactly because I share those traits and experiences that I counter.

I've been the shy guy pretty much all my life. There were high and low times, but for the majority I went from just being shy to having some social phobia, just wanting to stay home with some video games or hang out with friends I already had, talking to new poeple was terrifying and small talk sucked, so I missed out on friends, parties, events, experiences.

Was able to slowly and slowly work my way towards getting better at it. Still get nervous about a lot but it's tons easier now, and though there were the what-ifs, it's more strategic to look toward the future and what can still come!
