Uboachan's scanlation group Patchy Illusion Team has just released two new Yume Nikki Doujins: In the Shallows and Refrain. You can see all of our previous releases here.

How? I always see people saying things like 'I only have online friends', but I have never knowingly spoke to the same person twice, let alone befriend them. It especially bamboozles me how people can make friends in sites without identities, which encompasses most of the places I go.

Just to be clear, I'm not asking for friends here as I don't think I'm capable or worthy at the present time, but for when I am I want to know where to start.

Hi anon I have online friends.

It helps if you have some shared hobby you are good at. For example programming or drawing.

This sucks because you realize how people are only interested in what they can get from you, but after a while it's ok and you get used to being screwed over by the rest of the world

Sorry not sorry for misanthropic post

Oh it's that artist that makes me want escape to gensokyo again.

Anyway you have to have a hobby or something you want to talk about foremost, look for discords on reddit or 8chan etc, get to know people, then add them if you like them.

You can play games and add people from them too.

Really the most important part is to be put situations where you talk to others, then proceed to add then and force conversations with them till you eventually become buddies and maybe they will start conversations with you.

The gist of it is, don't make friends, use friend simulators like uboachan.

It's not anything like anime, even if they have an anime avatar.

Just hop in an some chat platform and talk to people, and repeat the process for as long as you want. I only talk with 1 person online daily; we met on an IRC channel and have been on since then, about 5 years ago. Things tend to go smoothly if you have something in common to talk about, as >>17599 points out.

Well ya dingus, just don't tell people you're good at it. Assholes want to use you because you let them know you have potential.
Either that, or learn to say no.

What's your concept of a friend?

Well, used to be a name on this board, but not anymore.
For the most part people meet here and then meet up on other platforms like Discord or Skype. Online friends mostly just hang out or play games together, that's about it.

If a person doesn't want you for your knowledge or skills, then they will enjoy your company for the mutual pleasure of talking to eachother. Humans like to talk to eachother and bark noises into each other's ears. It's validating.

Nothing wrong with friendship founded on a transactional basis, because that's all there really is to human relationships.

Someone who puts as much effort into my life as I put into theirs.

e.g. I will offer to help someone move, then when I need to move, he offers without me asking.

Or, say I bring food into work one week for everyone. Then again in another month. Then a coworker asks when the next time food is coming in, instead of bringing some in himself. It shows self-centeredness, which is not a quality of a good friend.

That's the real difference - most people will do something if you ask them to because they are taught to help people/be nice, etc. However, that is the only reason many people do those things. When they do those things without prompting and not just because they want to avoid saying "no" to somebody who is asking for help, I consider them actual friends.

get out

Most online friends you meet are just there to play games with you most of the time. The way to go from "online friend" to "actual friend" is when the person regularly starts hitting you up to play with them all the time or just sit down and talk to you.
It's weird, because it's just like a business relationship/talking to your co-workers.
