Currently 11:31 PM (12/13/14) when this topic is posted.

For quite awhile I noticed, if rather more sensitively put: Crunchyroll is full of strangers, not saying that isn't obvious.

I for one know nothing or how you guys would look in real life, you guys with those really cool .gifs and epic Profile pictures, I check almost everyone's profile I come across for awhile, nothing I see would be personal or opening.

And the ones with actual pictures would averagely be some guy/girl with a blank face.

I'm pretty hypocritical since I'm not that opening myself, but I find it unnecessary to open up to- well, strangers.
But I guess this is the internet we're talking about, anything goes around here. But why can't it be easier to just talk.

Why are humans so complicated that we feel the need of other bending down to their knees and make the first move for us? I'm always questioning many things, but this one is a pretty big one I need to know.

I don't always wear my emotions on my sleeves but I do stay pretty open about things.

The only "first move" really required here is to send someone a buddy request and a guestbook entry. o-o You don't really have to bend over backward to talk to anyone.

Unless you somehow mean on some deep, really connected level. Or if you want people to expose their true inner selves to you, you'd need to earn a decent amount of trust first. Opening up to any and every person out there is actually a pretty dumb thing to do. It leaves you very vulnerable. People reflexively want to protect themselves.

To be perfectly honest, I truly do not care about any of you.
Please refer to status.

This my nigga up there ^
Yeah it's kinda hard caring about people I will never meet. Though I don't mind being friends then I may care, or not....

90% of all people are wired for failure. 90% of the ten percent who are wired for success will fail regardless. The upper 1% have it all, but are often depressed.

My point; most of us are weak or screwed over no matter what we do or where we end up.

So confusing, I don't even know how to answer, but I'll give it a shot.


There's a word for us forum lurkers, bored.

We're all just majorly bored

The ones with cool profile pictures are usually the interesting ones. You might want to start from there.

it depends on the communities we're living in. imo, in western societies, people tend to be more independent and not very attached to other people... (note: I said western society, not any particular race of people, this could even include westernised Japanese cities like Tokyo).

i'm living in a western community at the moment, and people barely speak to one another even though I have like plenty of neighbours.

Back in my native country (Cambodia), if we were neighbours, we'd be giving each other food all the time, and even babysit children. I was babysat by my neighbours most of my childhood... there is more a sense of emotional attachment and friendliness in non-western societies.

Agreed, lived in Latin America for 6 months for that reason and would have stayed longer if it wasn't for a lack of job opportunities

I personally have 3 groups of people within my buddy list. Those who I should remove, who only add for numbers or are 13 years old and say "XD" every 3 words and don't know social mannerisms or even how to hold a conversation. Those who have the potential to be a great conversational partner, but are kind of on the fence, not very active or just don't click well with me. Finally, there are those who I click with straight off the bat whom I have intimate, personal or just plain interesting discussions with. I've been on Crunchyroll since 2008 originally and have encountered many people and typically can gauge a person's online personality and behaviours just by looking at their profile and recent GBs. That said, it does take time finding people who are more willing to be open and put themselves out there as well, a lot of people just engage in shallow relationships with not much regard for others, you just gotta sift through them in the end.
