Ever feel invisible? This may vary depending on how extroverted one is, but its been something of a pain sometimes talking to the established names, but enough about me, what do you think? Do you think its rough? Did you have it rough when you first got here? Be as descriptive as you want to be! I'm happy to be here and all, and my focus is on anime, but sometimes , eh, its feels icky trying to talk on here. So who feels my pain? Who here thinks I'm dumb?

Personally I can't be excessively extroverted because that isn't me, but I try.

I've been in groups of people where I have physically left and nobody noticed for about fifteen minutes. In person.
So I don't particularly feel like I'm being ignored.

Also, I don't know who the "established names" are, so perhaps being particularly bad with people helps.

I have been here quite some time. I started out mostly just watching anime. Then, I lurked the forums for quite some time. Eventually I started actively posting in the forums, been a couple years now I think.
It was really rough at first. After getting teased, I changed my avatar. (Originally it was a photo, and I was teased for my appearance). Also I rarely create threads, as that doesn't tend to go well for me.
And honestly, I still constantly feel invisible. Seems like maybe 10% of my posts get a reply? Sometimes I go over a week without getting a reply.
Sometimes I feel masochistic for even bothering to post. But we all crave human communication, and as the majority of people I know in real life I have almost nothing in common with, at least knowing I am in the company of other anime lovers somehow makes me feel less lonely sometimes.

Well its not that I feel ignored its that people be like " wtf is this person talking to me and theres nothing I can really do but let it go. Hence why I wrote it as trying to "break in". lol.

Like a pair of shoes? I'm not entirely sure I understand, but I suppose I can empathize with with the principle that some people are hard to deal with. Perhaps it's best to simply not worry.

Eh, it's just a message board, nothing about this should be rough. The closest is sometimes I type out something and close the tab without posting it. Always think twice before hitting Post Reply.
I have to yet to create a thread here, I might not ever. But I reply if I have something to say.

I can't remember what happened.

I'm just a worrier, I guess!

I do that CONSTANTLY.
I'll think somethink like:
"This adds nothing to the conversation" or
"I consider these thoughts profound enough that I can't bear to see them ignored" or simply
"OK I'm just rambling" or
"Idiot! The more time you spend posting on anime forums, the less time you have to watch anime!"
And then I close the tab.
