Figured since this seems to be a thinghttps://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/475412/5000-posts-and-almost-seven-years-later/p1
and that seems okay to post here in this section. Figured I'd post too. I know not exactly about MMOs, but his post isn't either.
So onto the post.
Back in 2012 I was still in school. I was bullied a lot (and I was almost choked to death once, and one time a kid pulled a knife on me but a teacher saw and never saw the kid again so must been seriously in trouble), and treated really badly. In real life I have high functioning autism, and VERY anti-social. In school I had a bad speech problem, but strangely I woke up and it went away (mostly) when I got older. But, I really hate people, and I'd rather be in a mountain cabin surrounded by nature and wilderness lol. Probably why I solo mostly in MMOs (but I'm more social in MMOs than real life)...which yeah defeats the purpose of most MMOs...but show me Warcraft the RPG that also gets updated for decades and decades with a massive expanding very large world that is exactly like WoW that is exactly about warcraft and I'll play it. No? Okay WoW it is then.
But, I did have one good friend, and one I still hang out with and talk to daily. He was bullied too, but he beat up his bully and everyone left him alone after that. They left me alone after that too since I always hung out with him.
I was still playing WoW then too, which came out in 2004 so I was playing that a lot. Still play WoW to this day lol...can't believe been playing WoW for so many years. It was 2012 I registed here on MMORPG.com...I forgot why though, I think there was a contest involving WoW or something so I signed up. At the time, a lot of people seemed excited about MMOs and everywhere else they were getting a lot of hate. But, that obviously changed lol. I did post a lot more serious stuff then, because everyone just really loved MMOs (mostly, there were a few trolls and haters). But once everyone just hated modern new MMOs, figured I'd give up posting serious stuff since so many on here became trolls and haters.
I actually don't care about the points, cause points don't matter. I just make whatever junk I can make up (I said I find stuff on Reddit, but that was a lie cause I thought it be funny to rile people and see who can get angry over something so stupid. Anyone who got angry about that needs a break from the internet lol. Thats such a dumb thing to get angry about rofl. But I really don't care how many points I get on a random niche site. I care more about points on Reddit than MMORPG.com (which literally mean nothing) cause can at least sell reddit accounts for over 100 dollars if have enough points. I had a reddit account with 11k points in just posts (not including comments) that sold for 89 dollars), but sometimes I still make a serious post. I still love MMOs, but most people here hate all the new ones and some even hate new games so I treat MMORPG.com very unseriously lol. But I actually just make up junk I'd say 75% of the time...don't even know if there is a reddit topic generator...maybe there is and if there is, thats dumber than the posts I make lol...but I don't feel like wasting time googling it.
A lot of old timers here that are stuck in their old ways, which is fine...its like people who play MUDs and started with MUDs sometimes think graphical games are bad and a de-evolution of gaming lol. MUDs are pretty awesome though, even as someone who missed that era by ...an era :P Gotta like reading and need an imagination to enjoy them though which a lot of people my own generation definitely lack (for most part).
Then back to real life...school was pretty shitty for me, but at least had my good friend. Never had a girlfriend until I was 24 so was single for a while...technically had one, but not really. at school one girl would like me one day, then be with another guy the next and was a huge cheater. I never actually asked her to be my girlfriend, so it doesn't count. Funny thing is, she got married once at 18 or 19 and cheated on the guy (saw her facebook posts before I removed her as a friend), married again at 20 or 21 and she got cheated on, and 3rd guy when she was 22 or 23 was some drug seller or criminal of some type cause they took a picture and in background was a massive huge stack of cash that definitely wasn't legally attained. I missed a bullet on that one. That and she already had so many kids from who knows how many guys, and I hate kids. I'd rather jump off a skyscraper than have kids or even be around kids lol.
But after graduating (I graduated with a full diploma, everyone else in my school (it was a school for people with disabilities, had only 200 students or so) didn't get a full diploma but whatever that lesser one is) things got a lot better. I opened up a lot more, going from saying very little to being kinda talkative. Found hobbies to do, and keep myself busy outside of PC stuff
It was 24 I met my girlfriend, who briefly actually went to my school for 2 months but was too young at the time, even though only 4 years younger (technically her actual age is only 2 years younger, but when adopted they changed it for some reason) 4 years is still a problem when about to graduate highschool compared to being both over 20 lol. She was living in a pretty bad place, so we reconnected by a random email her tablet automatically sent somehow and that following weekend she moved in with me and my parents (I still live with my parents, and she also has disabilities of her own like I do) and stayed with us ever since. Luckily for me, she is almost entirely what I wanted in someone. Likes a lot of the same stuff I do, but also is accepting of some of my hobbies (I like to keep weird insects, spiders and stuff, a lot of females probably wouldn't be happy with that) and she likes video games, but we haven't been able to afford to get her a laptop (she likes laptops better than PCs) to game on. But she has a tablet she plays on. But we share the PC sometimes and play games together...mostly tbh, she likes doing her own thing which is 100% good with me. Plus she doesn't want to ever have kids (hence surgery to stop that), and is good with just animals as "kids". That is always a big thing with a female is so many want kids.
My friend also ended up doing really well. In school, he played WoW with me (stopped playing in cataclysm, he hated that expansion and doesn't like the new version of WoW) but he had it bad with his girlfriend. She was really psychotic, but back then as kids its a bit difficult to handle things like that. But he moved on luckily. Now he has an awesome job and doing great with his college. His family even bought a house, after living in a junk condo for so long. But he moved to Washington, so we mostly talk to each other, but I go to washington quite often to visit and he comes down often to oregon to visit me. Not too far a distance though, since we're both kinda close to each other's state borders. He never managed to get a girlfriend though like I did. he had a lot more girlfriends than me, but he used dating sites and was cheated on by every women he met on them. He gave up dating sites cause he said they are BS for him.
But I know in these forums I'm not too well liked cause my junk posts. But that is just an act on my part in most of my actual posts (besides the occasional serious one where I stop the act). In real life and other places on the internet I'm actually rather nice and treat people the way I'd want to be treated and make actual serious comments, but I'm still not very social in real life...I hate the city and rather be in the wilderness with peaceful and quietness and nature around and no neighbors as far as they eye can see lol.
