myself (?)

I can't imagine myself not going through life without some kind of (small) reference from any anime I've seen.

Here is a life lesson from anime: you don't always want to be the protagonist.

I don't know how I should answer you. I don't watch a lot anime. I can tell you I just had a nice meal with my family and applied anime skills would be have a good conversation "lighten the mood" and "have a good laugh."

I can't define what is a healthy social life. I have a job. I volunteer. I go convention with friends and out drinking with them. I on a semi regular basis go out and play Friday Night Magic.

I guess you can say that isn't healthy. You could set a basis on what is and what is not a "healthy" social life.

school days is an extreme depiction of what would happen if you went for a harem route in real life

I wouldn't complain about my friend if she does what your friend did, because depending on your specific course of study, 70% of the time you're probably required to study by yourself or follow some old dude in a white coat, and the rest of time spent with your friends is usually spent on asking each-other what's going to be on the next exam

as for life lessons, I guess I learned a bit about Japan's views of other cultures, although there's nothing (that i can currently think of) that I can take to practical use.

OT:

Well, I do learn a lot of stuff from anime.
It's not really weird that you do though.
When you watch anime a lot like me and AnimeKami here,
you are bound to pick up a thing or two about from it.

Clannad, Major, Space Brothers, Cross Game
are some of the anime I've learned a lot from.
They are part slice-of-life genre so one of its goals is to teach, I think.

In order to be successful socially, there are a lot of requirements that some people just don't have. I know I'm missing a few myself. What happens when you are relatively young is the general expectation requires lots of group social skills. If you are not good with groups, you're already at a loss. The second thing you need is to generally be considered acceptable, everything from your appearance, to your smell, and whatever social norms are required.

As you get older, there is a shift that occurs towards nightlife activities. Still requires group social skills. Little by little, your friends may fade away and be replaced by new friends, and things generally downsize as folks start to get married and focus on the adult life ahead. Job, marriage, family, kids… before you know it, if you haven't learned how to be social, it's going to get difficult. And what if you can't? What if you just smell bad, what if you have an extra eyeball and missing both of your ears or something like that, what if you have a debilitating mental illness, there are so many things that could prevent someone from participating in what I'm guessing you are calling a normal lifestyle. I don't even think there's a fix for that. It just is.

I'm trying to think of an anime that reflects the hard reality of it all, and I can't.

I don't really know anyone like this, but I will say that I have, on multiple occasions, felt personally challenged by an anime I was watching. Anime seems to have a particular penchant for being able to reach a fairly deep understanding of the human person, so it is conceivable that someone watching a lot of anime would have a decent grasp of the human condition. I still don't think that's a substitute for real life human interactions, though.

There was some resemblance to your friend and myself. I guess I wouldn't have focused on the loner part as much.

I don't think this works. Leper colonies beneath Mother Teresa and her nuns were ostracized from society despite it not actually being highly contagious; they just looked really ugly so nobody wanted to be around them. There are entire countries of fervently religious folks who can't get a bite to eat, suffer from rape and abuse, and have no problem praying.

In any event, I only wanted to add that sometimes being a loner is not a choice. Sometimes people just don't have what it takes. Even if they were accepted by a higher power, they sure aren't going anywhere on earth!

Someone who is introverted and introspective is actually pretty good at thinking through life's problems? Stop the presses...

You actually don't need anything to be socially successful. I enjoy being charming every now and again, but I am a loner most of the time. A nice social life depends entirely on your preference.
