This thread is for hikikomori and NEETs to discuss personal issues regarding the NEET lifestyle.

NEET (Not In Education Employment Or Training)

The Japanese Ministry of Health, defines hikikomori as people who refuse to leave their parents' house, do not work or go to school and isolate themselves away from society and family in a single room for a period of 6 months or more.

If you are not a NEET or hikikomori don't post in this thread.

What if I am a NEET hikkikomori and I don't have any problems?
It keeps me away from people, the government's autism bux are enough to keep me well-supplied with instant ramen and Calpis. I basically get to sleep when I want, read when I want, watch anime when I want, and program when I want, and normalfags have to pay for it or they get arrested. This is comfort supreme.

I am a neet on autismbux. Getting rich off of crypto ponzi schemes will be my only saving grace. If not, I guess I'll just an hero in a few more years if I make it that long.

You were never a NEET if you're making that kind of money tbh. NEETs don't make money they depend on others.

I had only four figures three months ago and I've been a complete shut-in neet on disability for years.

what is a figure?

17 Name: Anonymous Counsellor : 2021-11-27 09:49 ID:Heaven

>>16
Needlessly obtuse term for digits in one's salary (ex someone making $10,000 make "five figures," $200 is three figures, etc).

I agree it's obtuse, but my portfolio fluctuates so much and I've only cashed out about 70k which is a minority percent of my portfolio. If I was talking about a real sallary wage I would give a more precise number because it's consistent.

I am a former hikikomori, I have a job for 8 years now yet I still feel immense difficulty relating to people. Don't romanticize the non-hikikomori life too much, guys. It's likely that you will think and act the same even when you get a job and "join society."

20 Name: Anonymous Counsellor : 2021-12-13 07:06 ID:Heaven

Joining society and becoming a slave to society is a bit different. Well, if this society also keeps you alive by feeding you this isn't a completely one sided slavery, but ultimately all that this will do is prolong the agony.

21 Name: Anonymous Counsellor : 2021-12-15 00:28 ID:Heaven

I tried joining society. I just can't do it.
I can't do any work because I don't function around strangers, or groups of people. Everyone has their work schedules and no time for me. I have no schedule and all the time in the world for others. It's a dreadful combination.
Unfortunately all the ways to meet people typically include groups of people looking to meet many others. Can't really meet anyone in a situation where I don't function. Internet isn't much more helpful either, nobody will ever live closeby.
End result, there is no society to join. No friends, no work, no hobby groups. Just the internet and me. It kinda sucks most of the time. I don't even enjoy video games anymore. Am I just going to watch anime until the end?

Where do you live? If you can post on here (despite how basic the site is) I would wager you aren't too far removed from civilization...

23 Name: Anonymous Counsellor : 2021-12-16 23:23 ID:L3IGmvx7

> Internet isn't much more helpful either, nobody will ever live closeby.

I wouldn't say that's a given, you never know. I've met people on the internet who live very close by to me and I even met them IRL. That's fairly simple to do these days but the problem is with what happens next. All of my meetups were super awkward. I found that I didn't have much to really say to these people as they turned out to be totally different in person than they are online. I suppose I should have expected that, as I'm not the same in person as I am online either.

That isn't to say that internet friendships can't be fruitful, they can, but only if you keep them exclusively online if you don't want a very awkward and ultimately unpleasant experience.

> End result, there is no society to join.

Of course there isn't. Society implies shared values, beliefs and goals in a population, not a loose collection of individuals who are out for themselves. When I mentioned joining society I only used the word "society" for simplicity's sake. What I meant by it was really just getting a job and going along to get along.

Pretty far removed when I am too scared to go outside. It's not so much my location as it is me. That said I do live in a tiny fuck town without daily public transport.

>>23
It's kind of a given when I live in a small country. I take it you live in a bigger country with a more dense population?
I'd fully expect a meetup of someone I had only chatted with to be vastly different. I prefer most of my online friends to remain online friends. I like them that way and I don't want them to change, but I think it would be possible make a slight idea of how someone acts by video chatting a lot in advance and getting past that initial awkwardness. I had a couple people like that in the past, but that's a very long time ago.
I just want a permanent roommate to watch anime and play retro video games with to be honest. A friend like that would be great.
A job with a small amount of coworkers where we get along would be nice too, but I have no social or practical skills.

How does one even get past their hiki status?
The last thing I want is for people to look at me and to talk to me, they will immediately notice how pathetic I am.

That stuff is mostly in your head. In reality most people don't care, they're just trying to get through their day just like you are. And even if they do give you shit, does it really matter? Most of them probably have normalfag-tier opinions anyway.

That doesn't sound so bad to me. For free, I put real work into online projects that matter. My problem recently is that my family members make me feel like dirt. Users (mostly anons) online also make me feel like dirt sometimes, or most of the time. Do I deserved to be treated like dirt? No. Are some of their criticisms somewhat valid? Yes.

Also I am sometimes a smelly anime fan, lulz.

It wasn't the first half a decade or so. The last couple years I've just been utterly rotting away chasing for something to enjoy. How long have you been a neet?

How do you guys secure finances to continue your hiki/neet lifestyles? I write music and do gamedev as hobbies but I lack the confidence to shill myself out for money. I have no income and am too socially anxious to ever get another face-to-face customer service job. I'm turning 30 this year, my mom is getting older and is in a high risk group for COVID, which has been spreading like wildfire through her workplace. I think it's only a matter of time before she gets sick, and if she dies I think I'm fucked.

I hope I get hit by a truck. Though I don't go outside and I live nowhere near a truck, so I guess maybe I hope a truck flies down from the sky and crushes me in my room.

My mentality has improved considerably. I no longer wish to get hit by a truck and have learned to count my blessings.

I get welfare checks of $300 per month and get to spend it all on video games while being a NEET in my parents house. I have high speed internet, heat, air conditioning, a giant room, a 50 inch TV. My mom cooks me all my meals. My dad does all the chores. Why would I want to change this?
