I do recall really hating working in mainstream jobs overall, in the one job as a waitor and the few retail jobs I had. The one redeeming thing about it though (apart from some steady wages) is I used to get a laugh with my workmates sometimes and we'd often be friends outside of work and hangout. Since doing IM I have no social circle and I am pretty much a recluse. I certainly helped this along as I shunned opportunities to hang out with ppl thinking it worthless but now looking back I see that it is not healthy. This is mainly due to my PUA brainwashing and not being able to just chill with ppl without constantly analysing higher and lower value etc. No1 bothers me now but also I feel like a huge grey cloud is over my head alot of the time and I feel deep deep lonliness. I tried joining a few groups on meetup which seems pretty good with ppl in a similar boat, either due to work or just new to the city. Anyone else experienced this and what have been your ways to remedy it? University and jobs were really the main lifeline for social contacts for me. Even though I didnt really put effort into it and didnt like to be really outgoing you knew alot of aquiantances and in hindsight it did seem to do alot to help keep my sanity which seems on the ropes alot of the time now I have a life of almost total isolation.
