Did anyone here have a imaginary friend or try creating one.
Yes, this might be cringe but i used to imagine myself friends with the early 2010s youtuber messes like game grumps KEK. Something about a bunch of people animating music videos and playing video games all day really appeared to 14 year old me. There were also another set of youtube weebs that i forgot the names of. Each group had a cool alt woman i aspired to be like though thats the connection i make today lol. In recent years, it was made up faceless people. a mix of different desired irl people in the back of my head, even more recently tho, i do not imagine friends anymore. Oddly enough, i never imagined my favorite fictional characters as friends, moreso lovers with a fictional better looking self insert or shipping. Looking back, i should have done that instead. Would’ve saved me the trouble of having too much high hopes that i’d score real living friends eventually
thank you it makes me lol every time I remember though
I've had imaginary friends since I was a child. Nowadays it's become my main coping mechanism. I have a romantic and a platonic character I daydream lots about. Over the years I've also developed a paracosm for all my ocs and imaginary friends I have.
Sadly it's gone a little too far because I also have characters based on ex-partners and ex-friends now. But I've tried my hardest to separate fiction from reality by never allowing myself to daydream about real people in my life so I don't get disappointed when they don't act in character with the daydream versions.
