it was a shock to realise that i wasnt the only one, but ultimately its much better not to be the only one

you definitely do seem to get a boost on that empathy thing with psychedelics, that i don't think you quite get with anything else.

you suddenly have a bit more tolerance to listen to someone else properly

i lost a mate to suicide when i was in my late 20s (he was permanently ill with epilepsy and it just got worse and worse) and i've got another mate right now going through crisis (which i don't think will ever end in suicide). he is reaching out right now for the first time in ages, just to chat and have a friend, which i'm trying to be, but i've also been clear with him that i'm not gonna meet him for a session (his issue is alcohol) cos i don't wanna go there with him and it was also why we became estranged for a while.
 

woops

is not like other people
i can only think of one peer that has got married off the top of my head, and craner is currently engaged.
i think out of my little 20s group there is only one couple that are still married.

80% of the marriages in 20% of the men as dictated by female hypergamy?

has there been uptick in marriage among young americans? or is it just a specific subset? Or have americans always married young?
I dont know the stats but most of the people in my circle are not married and Im not sure they will. My more straight friends are getting married though

once your friends have children this effect is magnified. then each meeting really is a straight line sprint to comatose.
Pls tell us which hell is worse, once and for all, right now. Having children or not having children.
