Introverted loser who likes to be inside all day and is into "nerd stuff" and memes. Everybody can be special and in the club!


what did it ever mean before that? seems like its more of the same, minus twitter memes and mainstream appeal… (failed normalfags?) maybe hikkis who are hikkis post 2020 are fake hikkis and pre-2020 hikkis are genuine approved hikkis that are worth a lot to collectors on ebay


NEETs were people without jobs, school, and training for jobs. Hikkis are shut-ins who seldom leave their house or room.


According to Saito's book on Hikikiomori, it almost always starts with school refusal in the teenage years. I agree on the distinction. I think NEET should be an economic term to distinguish people who don't participate in society much, and Hikikiomori is more of a mental issue preventing someone from leaving their house/room, which can have many causes.

I hope you don't drop out. It only gets harder and harder to recover the longer you're away from others. Good luck


I don't actually have any problem leaving my house/room, I just don't have any friends or money to do anything.

I lately noticed how little i leave room and how uncomfortable i get around people. is getting scary how much i despise the outside world. I feel trapped
outside but free at my room.


>I lately noticed how little i leave room
on average how long do you go?
>getting scary how much i despise the outside world
if its causing you great distress, id suggest talking to a therapist


glad to hear you feel free somewhere


>>8099 it isn't the same for you ?


no it is, but i know some people that feel utterly trapped as hikkis

That's my post lol. I turn 29 in 8 weeks
it's insane how fast time passes now. Hours feel like minutes somedays. 8 years and so much has changed. I was never active here but I can't believe how dead this board became. I'm no longer a NEET but I was one when I made that post. Wild…

How is your life now.


Better, much much better. A lot of what I thought would never happen to me ending up going well in the end. Unfortunately, I never ever anticipated the degree of decline the world as a whole would go in 11 years. If I had known, I would have been much more proactive and focused, but I guess I now have goals, interests, reasons to live compared to then.
If I was starting as I was as a severely dysfunctional hikikomori teenager in the present…
yeahhhhhhh, I think I would just check out…


On the bright side, it's become something of a living time capsule. I don't know that you could have moments like this except on a dying imageboard.

I do not mean on this site but in general where are all the losers hanging out online now because all the imageboards are very slow and any of the bigger platforms are suffocating by censoring controversial opinions driving discussion of those topics away yet where is everyone?

ver the past 5 years it is like nearly every hikikomori realized that online communities for losers were not worth the drama or they killed themselves.

I really apreciate you putting your lessons here, i'm not one to post a lot either, and when i do all i can feel is doubt, i fear what people might think of me, that's because i've always wanted to be seen as smart and the cool guy lol. i'm trying to get into the state of mind of not caring about it, and only minding my own, it's been a bit tough but every day i feel more and more, even if for a few hours, that i'm a real person. i hate most social media sites, popular things just feel like complete garbage to me, and i just don't want to feel bad about it anymore. im just replying because i wouldn't want a post like yours to be left out in the wind, you've poured your heart into it i can really tell, thanks again i wish you the best.

People were posting about this in 2021? Lol, things have only gotten worse in 2024. I know how lame multi-replying is but this is the only thread I have enjoyed reading through in sometime. Please be patient and understanding!
You can also use AI to further develop and streamline your interests and hobbies. I find it a great deal of fun just coming up with ways to do so. I hope you're okay.
We've moved to:
Be warned, this is, by far, the deadest iteration of magicchan yet.
No, I really don't think so. The worst are usually constantly embarassing themselves online while stalked by scum from kiwifarms, already dead, or downloading CP/snuff from somewhere.
I'm not 30 yet, but yes, the older guys generally have a more refined stylometry. You almost never see them now compared to years ago.

I'd love to try visiting any of the sites recommended itt but I don't use a vpn. it felt like lainchan definitely tracked users and logged all sorts of information, or that somehow other users had more access to that kind of information than the average halfchanner ever cared to know, or just couldn't track too easily because of the larger userbase. with smaller sites you risk comfy for "comfy" I think, don't you? is what I'm trying to say. Am I being too paranoid?


Not at all. Severeal years ago, I got the wizardchan mods platinum mad because I often called them out on their blatant bullshit. I definitely had a few stalk my presence with a grudge on the site until I left for good.
I'm not active anywhere to warrant such measures but If I was, I definitely would leave much less of a digital footprint.


Anyone know who this guy was talking about? I really wanna read those essays…

Finding other neets to relate to feels impossible. On discord all I seem to find is normies wanting to “retire” it should be a separate distinction from “neet” I can’t fully explain this it’s hard to articulate do normies annoy you taking over neet spaces then turning it into another echo chamber of rules you have to follow socially? Even though they want to remove themselves from the rat race.
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.



Nothing annoys me more than seeing normies take the label of neet/hikki as a stand-in for their lack of any discernable inner-substance – they think being a hikikomori is cute and wear it as means of an identity, to seem special as it were. It's demeaning when it happens since – as you've pointed out – it becomes impossible to connect with others in any meaningful way. The experience and subsequent hardships of the condition is lost to the vanity of the crayon-eating masses.

like autism, methinks

everybody and their mother just sticks it in their bio to make up for their dreary lack of personality

which, speaking as a full blown retard, really pisses me off


"on discord", sorry but genuinely what does this mean? can you search for random people to talk to through tags or something now? how is it that you're running into supposedly so many normies like this that describe themselves like this, I'd want to make actual neet friends too because normalfags are always thinking it's some psychopathic thing to not leave the house but I'm also too afraid to search on my own and haven't tried anything yet, what is it that you're doing so far?


Having some neet friends would be nice

Does anyone else here have Avoidant Personality Disorder (AvPD)? I was recently diagnosed but I know I've had it for a long time (I've been a hikki/NEET for most of my life, unfortunately.)

idk just screaming into the void for solidarity im tired

I heard something similar but decided not to pursue a formal diagnosis because A) he said it was mild and B) I didn't want it to become a self-fulfilling prophecy


i refuse to entertain this unless youve been diagnosed by a doctor, cause otherwise i assume youre some underage kid larping.

i dont know much of the fandom, although im aware of the reputation. regardless, sunny is cute.


I always thought I did, but I tend not to put too much stock into diagnoses and stuff since I keep to myself anyway and it doesn't really affect the few other people in my life. From what I've heard getting things diagnosed sucks and forces you to talk to a lot of people which I don't care to do if I don't really have to lol

Had full-time job for about five and a half years, then the lockdowns happened, then I lost my job.

>what do you do all day?

Youtube, Minecraft, chatting.

>what form of social interaction do you have, online and offline?

Nothing IRL, just online chatting (mostly on the fediverse but I pop back to image boards every several months or so)

>how often do you get outside, if at all?

Two or three times a week. Mostly to watch my nieces.

>how long have you been a NEET?
probably 4 or 5 years now
>was there a reason for you becoming a NEET?
i just never went back to school after moving. no high school education means i'm unable to find a job where i live for the most part. i've tried for a while and no places want me. i guess aside from that i'm just not compatible with other people. i'm happier when i'm alone
>what do you do all day?
i like to draw every day, i'm attempting to learn how to compose music and create video games using rpg maker. i do a lot of cleaning and household activities as well as picking up some exercise recently. i think my daily activities are a lot better than what they used to be when i was always around other people
>what form of social interaction do you have, online and offline?
only talk to family offline, but even then i still distance from them. i have a few people i talk to online
>how often do you get outside, if at all?
maybe once a month. i want to start going for walks again, stopped initially because i was unnerved by other people
>do you live independently or with parents?
parent and siblings. though i'm getting a lot older and i'll have to move eventually

>how long have you been a NEET?
Since the day I dropped out high school near the end 2016, so 7-8 years now.

>was there a reason for you becoming a NEET?

Autism and my upbringing: grew up poor, raised by an unstable and neglectful parent, and having my mind and spirit (and my front teeth) broken by the public school hell. Relentless bullying (which turned into regular assaults and beatings from middle school onward) and alienation throughout my entire adolescence lead to me becoming a dysfunctional non-adult who is isolated, and extremely paranoid about others. I don't believe I would've survived another year of HS. Thoughts of ending it still regularly cross my mind when painful memories from school randomly come back, or whenever I'm reminded of just how far behind I am compared to normal healthy people my age (24) and younger.

>what do you do all day?

I lost interest in my hobbies (namely art and gamedev) and did nothing but sleep all day, and lurk various image boards and dead forums from 2017-2020. September 2021 I upgraded from my old laptop to a decent PC with money I had saved from the stimulus checks, and decided to get back into art, learn and get good at 3D art with Blender, and actually create something instead of wasting away. I squandered much of 2022, binging through various games I had missed out on, and did not make as much progress as I had wished. Starting 2023, I decided to play less games and dedicate my time to practicing and grinding away at 2D and 3D art until it's decent enough to post online, get good at animating, and learn a certain game engine I've been wanting to work with. I Feel like I've made good progress over the past year, and have come to realize that I absolutely need to keep myself busy, as to not ruminate over negative thoughts and memories, or engage in self-destructive behavior.

>what form of social interaction do you have, online and offline?

I currently have zero internet friends, no presence on social media, and never had single IRL friend either. My mother and 19 year old brother (who is also a neet and autistic) are usually locked away in their rooms like myself. We only exchange a few words with each other each day, if any. I feel like I'm too broken to connect with anyone anymore, and just not compatible with this society which has devolved into Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>how long have you been a NEET?
5-6 years, fuck me
>was there a reason for you becoming a NEET?
It first started when i was going to college then i had a constant panic attack that lasted a month or a couple of weeks. In which i had spent most of my days sleeping then if not having an anxiety attack. It obviously eventually ended in me being kicked out because i wasn't showing up and i just never tried to go back.
>what do you do all day?
I basically waste my life away playing games, I do read once in a while but most things are quite boring or unfun.
>what form of social interaction do you have, online and offline?
Not much i don't have any friends anymore both real life and offline, i mostly just talk to my sibling once in a while. It isn't enough though so i mostly just suffer and endure with playing games.
>how often do you get outside, if at all?
I used to go outside a lot but now it is once in a while when i have a bit of money saved.
>do you live independently or with parents?
With family sadly, holy shit i wrote my life story.

I missed out on everything as a kid. I was always left alone by my peers which fucked me up of any social skills in the long run. I still have trouble holding a conversation. Have you guys had any trouble as a kid? This extreme isolation happened from 3rd to 8th grade which was enough to cripple me possibly my whole life. Or what is left of it anyway. Nearly 6 years of my life consisted of going home from school and back. Every day. Never talk with anyone, not even with family. Just me and my thoughts from a young age

I don't want to be like those other anons who just vent out shit here, so I'll ask the question, have you guys went through something similar that had a damaging effect on you? I still feel bits of loneliness from it.

pic unrelated FLCL just makes me feel like shit

While I am okay with religious topics being discussed on this site, I ask that you refrain from directly attempting to convert people to your religion here. I am sure I am not the only user this is traumatic for, in fact I had to delete other users' visceral reactions earlier. This is now a rule going forward.

I have more personal thoughts on the matter but I do not want this thread to be further derailed.


Your thread drove me insane although amongst other factors 3 years ago tbh. More other factors really


Pretty much the same.
I spent the majority of my childhood & teenhood in isolation and the little social interaction I made weren't great which made me further retreat.

Kinda surreal to think i'll be 30 in few months. I'm very much the same but I blame myself less now.
I find solace in the idea that it was out of my control and there wasn't much I could do about it.


Was it my fault? Please be truthful.


I became super religious as a result of being isolated. Its been a relief for me and a headache in other ways. I'm still an isolated loner. I've been a social outcast since I switched schools at elementary. I used to be liked in my original school but when we moved everything went wrong and I never recovered. I'm not trying to say religion is a crutch or anything. But I can see why a lot of socially outcast people are drawn too it. Too much existential pain in the world and secular stuff doesn't quite cut it. Being religious only made people reject me more but I just kept to myself. It did make me calmer, less angry, diverted me away from right wing incel shit and less suicidal. Helped me come to terms with my suicidal ideation too. I guess it helped.

>im genuinely just not a very pleasant person
Yeah, I can see that.


in my experience, spending MORE time by myself once highschool was over actually did wonders for anything I had going on somehow. I finally had the time to actually do what I wanted without having to be as drained and depressed all the time from being forced to do well in something I didn't personally see any benefit from. you just have to keep going, honestly. I actually talk to my own family now, I was extremely anti-social before due to the same sort of anxiety and mental anguish. It's still there but after some years I can somehow just do more things I couldn't now, more often, just more chilled out overall. I hope things get better for you naturally over time too, anon. try to just enjoy the ride


File: 1711112845119.jpg (31.66 KB, 384x512, ah. mentally ill women.jpg)

Can vouch. Getting out of mandatory schooling was probably the best thing to happen to me. As soon as you're allowed to take things at your own pace, things get a lot easier to process (at least in my experience). I admit it helps if you have some quality of life backup like family able to support you, but the matter is just making it through is probably one of the most important things. I hope things improve, Op. You're doing great.

Even knowing there's people in the same building as me makes it impossible to fully relax and be myself, and it kills any productivity. It feels so restricting.

How do you achieve complete isolation from humans?

I'm in the same boat. I live in an apartment with three other people since I'm a college student, and sometimes I would rather piss in a cup and dump it later than risk bumping into anyone on the way to the shared bathroom.

When I go to supermarkets, the thought of how many people were required to make all the flooring/ceiling/racks/commodities makes me freak out. I feel like there's a million hands all reaching out at me. It doesn't help that I'm a Muricafag, so of course I feel scummy because the migrant people working the commercial bakeries and packaging machines and whatever are having an infinitesimally more difficult life just for me to be here pissing my pants at the thought of never being able to achieve real isolation.


I can relate. I've had to live with family in a cramped flat for the past 4+ years and it is actually so suffocating to the point that the only time I truly feel like I'm alone is during the middle of the night when everyone else is asleep.


They're filming with smartphones.


lmao just tell them to stop
