Wasted my youth indoors fucking around on imageboards with people who hated me with nothing good to show for it. All I ended up with is a sense all other forms of communication don't feel "right", and a reflexive nostalgia for the ephemeral culture of "the old days" even though they sucked.
I couldn't change with the times. So almost a decade ago now I exclusively started hanging out on tiny, dead, or dying IBs as my sole form of communication. The more insulated, the more they seemed like a still frame of how it used to be. Magicchan the primary one. When that went down, what came next for me was just to quit. For little more than a year I had no contact with anyone. As long as I just did things I actually liked doing, like playing games or reading manga I did actually feel better than when I would post on the net.
Though it's likely different for you. For me socialization on the net has never really been something rationally undertaken because it benefited. Just more of a animal instinct I can't override even if it is to my detriment. I don't know if anyone else here is like that, I used think that some mage types were but that may just have been projection.
