Drama Mamas: How to befriend when antisocial {WoW}

Apr 30th 2010 3:45PM "I'm not sure that I'm qualified to give advice"

I agree, you aren't qualified.

Extrapolating that someone is 'young', 'unbalanced', 'judgemental', lacks social skills and needs therapy from what is essentially two paragraphs of "I have trouble making friends online, please send help" is neither sensible nor productive, for this person or you - as cathartic as that may have been.

For the person who wrote in, I suggest that you do a few things - firstly, to build friends you need stability. Flitting between characters won't give you that - so force yourself to play one character exlusively for a specific period of time, and be outgoing with them. Secondly, join one of those hardcore guilds you said you liked, or better yet - form your own, and be honest about the people you want in the guild. Thirdly, try venting any displeasure or frustration outside of the game - microblogging is one solution, for example.

I do agree with the Drama Mamas' recommendations, they are sensible and robust. Always pay attention to how you're interacting with people - and if you can find that group of like-minded individuals, all the better.

Finally, remember that not everyone is born extroverted. If you're OK with having a smaller group of friends that are dearer to you, then that's fine. Don't let people pressure you into radically altering your behaviour because of their assumptions about life - it will only make things worse in the long run.

Breakfast Topic: Which NPCs cause a double take? {WoW}

Sep 7th 2009 8:39AM The most bizarre one is Reagan Mancuso in Thrallmar. She's a reference to a character from an obscure (but awesome) webcomic called Templar, Arizona.

15 Minutes of Fame: The furry fandom {WoW}

Jun 15th 2009 5:21PM "Our community is mostly those who believe they have animal spirit, or are truly an animal on the inside."

Wrong.

I really hate it when the therianthrope "spiritualists" pretend to represent an art-based community.

T WOW.COM: Seriously. This is a roleplaying and art fandom. The "animal spirit" people?
