I was doling out advice on Omegle again, and a guy came to me about him and his girlfriend. He made the mistake of smothering her for most of their relationship, and now, she wants to hang out with anyone except him.
He also was concerned about his life being stagnant. He was a business major (business majors are geniuses, but boring as fuck) and spent all his time on school (that wasn't with his gf).
My advice to him was simple: Get a hobby.
His rebuttal was "But I'm not good at anything."
Find something you like. Doesn't matter if you suck at it. As Jake from Adventure Time once said, "Sucking at something is one step closer to being kinda good at something."
I told him to find some art majors, and hang out with them, and make stuff (he likes creating things). I gave him this advice under the premise that once he finds new friends and a new hobby, that perhaps his girlfriend will value the time they spend together more.
He then asked "What if I lose her?"
So what if you do? No big deal. 2.5 billion vaginas in the world. I explained to him that if he does lose her, he then has more time for his new friends, and he has a new hobby, so now he is a more well rounded person. And if he keeps the girl, then he is a more well rounded person with a girlfriend that has fallen for him again. Either way, he can't lose by changing. But if he continues to stagnate, he will.
In conclusion, if you think you are boring, male or female (I see a lot more boring females than males) get a hobby or passion in life. it is much too short to go through the motions, get a job,kids, and die.
