I think I'm safe.

I have SOME anime music tracks, but I don't think they're opening/closing themes.

And I know the Japanese phrases from fighting games.

Most anime is kinda dumb & unwatchable

I thought the same, but considering how diverse the board choices are on 4chan (these day), you could very well go to them and end up not discussing anime at all.

that's because sneaky tiki didn't steal this one like the dirty canadian that he is this time around. i was patient and decided it best to watch someone come up with something better than i could in a rush to get the OP position.

I am so glad I did wait. <3 Anon.

as for the image in question... I WAS DANGEROUSLY CHEESY UP IN THIS BITCH. HOLY SHIT.

I apparently vacillate between different kinds of almost weeaboo depending on the time of year, but even looking back every six months, I have a HIGH number of these but never quite enough to complete my bingo carudo.

also i stopped visiting /a/ around the time i moved into /co/. /a/a hasn't been that good since around the time bleach started to get popular. not bleach's fault. just... too many summer 4chans occurred. you know the drill.

1. If we're using "hentai" as a catchall term for any sort of anime-style pornography, yes.
2. Akira, so yes.
5. I read Naruto (glutton for punishment) and HunterxHunter when it bothers actually showing up. If I ever catch up with JJBA, add that.
6. There was no "anime club" per se in high school, but I hung out with a bunch of guys who were into anime. Effectively, it's the same.
11. Who doesn't watch a piece of media in it's original language when given the choice?
12. ...perverted anime dreams... -_-
13. This site's equivalent, /jam.
15. I know more Japanese than I think, courtesy of all the subs I watch.
16. Couple figurines, yes.
18. Isn't this functionally the same as the "fapping to hentai" one?
20. I think I willingly watch only two things that aren't anime and aren't the news: Big Bang Theory and NCIS.
21. I put yes for this one because, if I HAD that kind of space, I totally would. As of right now, I only have two.
22. Replace girlfriend with boyfriend, and F**K YEAH!!
23. Err, let's see. -chan, -kun, -san, -sama, -chama, -dono, -sensei... that's enough.

No soda for about two weeks and I'm dropping weight pretty fast. Hope its not somethinng I should be worried about.
>> No. 387370
Probably not unless it keeps up for a long time. The amount of sugar you get in a day from soda is surprising, and the difference it makes in your weight is significant. You should level out fairly soon though--if you're anything like me, you'll still be overweight afterward, but it'll be a respectable level of overweight, like the kind that you might actually be able to do something about with exercise and a slightly healthier diet.

I've been listening to rap since I was a kid.

Yo, are you finding them everywhere? cuz Maggots usually get laid in clutches in rancid materials and can't get that far, so if you triangulate where you find them you should be able to hone in, also if you think you are used to the smell, head out for a day so you can come back fresh to find it.

Ah the music of the tolerant southern states. Use your common sense.

Genres like rap, country, metal or rock, genres that actual racists/mysoginists listen to will have more racist/mysoginist artists. Genres like pop, R&B, techno, most ska, folk or classical/blues will not.
Don't expect to find bastions of tolerance in third world genres either, some latin american music would probably give you goosebumps of hate if you understood spanish.

You have to understand only a small portion (30-40%) of specifically western society (est 500 million people) actually has time to consistently care and think about both sexual and racial equality.
Don't expect high philosophy in music of the remaining 6.9 billion humans who couldn't give a damn because they're too busy competing to survive, too busy grabbing any opportunity to put their competitors down, especially when these advantages can help them label huge groups of people as enemies.

I am "recovering weeaboo", where only 8 of the things on that card currently apply to me, & 7 years ago, about 18 of those things would have been checked off. So I'm doing pretty good on that front.

So the initial estimate for getting back into my home post restoration was 2 weeks, give or take a couple days. It has been two weeks, & now I've been told it may be at least 3 weeks more.

On the plus side, the friend I'm residing with by taking up her spare bedroom travels for work all the time, so she doesn't care how long I'm here because she's actually kinda happy to have a live-in house & cat sitter. Also, her cat & my cat are finally starting to get along, so they're keeping each other company when I go to work.

Another day, another throat constricting. It doesn't seem to affect airflow, and only slightly affects swallowing, but it's painful enough to be just above annoying (a 3/10?) The only two things that seem to really work in getting rid of it for a time are ice pack on the throat (which comes with its own problems) and tea (I hate tea.)

Could be allergies, could be the dry weather, could be that my body is just a fucking garbage heap. I should probably see a doctor since this is a recurring thing, but like hell I have the money...

Something has occurred to make me contemplative. My roommates loaded up a bicycle carry-cart with various goods, clothing, canned food, and other stuff, and I have no problem with that. My problem is that they just left the whole package sitting in the middle of a local park that sees a fair amount of homeless traffic in our city.

It bugs me because while they obviously want to do a good thing, there's a question in my mind of why they didn't contribute straight to a shelter, y'know? It's like, both of them work in various degrees within that world, and yet neither of them trust the system they operate in enough to hand the goods straight to a place where they know it will be distributed.

It's made me contemplative though as my own privilege is fairly substantial, and my roommate made comments that all of us are far too privileged. Which, sitting here in my filth and all my bad habits, I'm hard pressed to not agree with. But by the same token, I pay into the system because the system has supported me, and because what it has granted me allows me to operate more on my own recognizance rather than on the overt kindness of others. I'm not impartial to plight of people having more troubles in the world than me, but I'd want to see the systems in general improved to assist people. There's part of my mind that says that a single gift like that is not as simple a thing as my roommates want to believe, and that handing it over to e real place of aid would've been much better. But I find myself without a very good moral leg to stand on or a concrete reason to give my roommate, who is a little annoyed at my thoughts on the thing.

Nobody told me being an adult would bring real moral conundrums.

No, you can't use a debit card like a credit card. Debit cards can sometimes be used as credit cards, but that only means A) you don't put in your PIN and B) a slight delay in the money being removed from your account. But it doesn't allow you to pay in installments like a credit card can.

Get an actual credit card; it really doesn't matter the limit or APR, so long as you pay it off monthly or, for more expensive purchases like the 3DS, very quickly. It will also help you build a credit profile, which can be used to make it easier to get loans and better credit cards in the future.

Severe inexplicable exhaustion, and sensitivity to an astounding number of foods.

I'd emphasize three things in these:

1) That you are a functioning adult with like a job or something.

2) Why you want this apartment in particular. Even if you're a people person like you sound to be, you want to emphasize that you actually want this apartment, and you won't be looking to leave as soon as a better one opens up, even if it's "I need access to train x and bus y because reason z"

Apply to the dual nature of these things the principle of the yin and yang that must always be understood as a whole, not as individual virtues.

To find happiness, a dynamic and responsive balance must be struck where one relinquishes shaping the universe to expectation but adapts expectation and acceptance to meet the universe.

In other words, if you feel stuck, fuck it and find something that isn't stuck okay?

So would it be a better path to building as a friend first? Or would such a think build too much confusion with intentions? My track record as it stands is miserable.
>> No. 387620
i play every friendship/relationship by ear since every relationship is different. you're one set of ingredients. the other person is another set. A+B makes... well... you only find out after you try it.

if you go in expecting things to be romantic whether or not you're attracted to a person, you're saying what you think the relationship should be instead of finding out what works/what it can be.

if you want to make a romantic advance... don't try to sneak-in by "being a friend" first. it makes the "friend zone" a self-fulfilling prophecy since you're going in with other intentions. that's just misleading and manipulative. be a friend because you want to get to know someone and because it's something you might just want to be anyway. if something else comes out of it, that's completely incidental.

if you want to get into dating without going the "friend route", try looking into places/sites/other things where people who are mostly interested in dating will go. there's an understanding already: we're here to find romantic interests. if things don't pan out there, either, it's the same rule: A+B-> ? You can't know for sure until you try.

Basically... just meet people and don't put pressure on them to be anything for you but be willing to explore what you could want, and don't feel obligated to fulfill anything you don't want to... even if that means pretending to be friendly just to not be rude. you're under no obligation to keep people in your life you don't want to. not unless you're a bad parent, anyway. hah.

Right okay, I seem to have a difficulty in being a personality of contrasts. I'm not unbalanced or anything and tend to get too personal too quick when at first I appear to be real quiet. But what happens to me is just stuff and I feel no attachment to things that happen to me, they aren't guarded secrets just things that have no really personal feelings connected to them. That and my personality and volume increase and I've spooked a few quiet ones away with that change. Guess I gotta fine the right amount of open or something and maybe understand what is acceptable a bit better. Anyone got a guideline to that bit?

>I'm not unbalanced or anything and tend to get too personal too quick when at first I appear to be real quiet.

I think that's probably the big thing right there. You need to balance that initial quiet with being at least a little vocal. People need to kind of know you first and be a little aware of that switch. I can get a kind of 'volume switch' for effect or emphasis when I'm normally very quiet in both tone and words, but people need to get a sense of who you are fairly quickly before they start thinking "friend" or even "lover" over "acquaintance". And while shaking up the status quo is always fun, people like to have a fast sense of who you are as a person, even if the side you're showing them is only like one face of a diamond.

Also, if you're really romantically interested, I was taught to go for phone numbers, although that isn't the only way it can work out. IDK, it seems that becoming friends even if there's a possibility of romantic interlude is not a bad thing, but you have to realize that if you become friends with someone you can't be pressuring them for sex or trying to push them into a relationship or anything. This is where signals get problematic and mixed up and weird, and everyone starts consulting love columnists. It's not that you can't be lovers within a friend group, but understand that that means changing the dynamic of that group. This is why it's better to go for telephone numbers and stay on the outside until you're invited in with romantic relationships vs. friendships.

Just talk a little more, honestly. Be a little more a part of the conversation. Introduce yourself if there's new people. Throw in SFW humor if you've got a bit.

As far as "making people like you": it's impossible to make everyone like you. We judge as soon as we see the "cover" of people, that is how they look to the outside world. Some people will dislike you at first sight. Most people won't really care one way or the other, so long as you fit some basic grooming standards (showering regularly, brushing your teeth, keeping your hair cut or styled, avoiding excessive B.O.). Some people will dislike you if you fit those grooming standards (though I generally wouldn't mess with those people for a variety of reasons).

As far as anything you can say, I would say this: every attempt to manipulate someone into liking you has the risk that they will end up hating you. For the most part, you want to appeal to people with genuine bits of your personality. Ultimately in life, you are trying to cultivate connections with people who both know and accept you, but also challenge you to rise to a higher standard. This is somewhat true in romance as well. Lies are difficult to make up, hard to maintain, and the people who fall for them aren't really interested in you. They're interested in what you're presenting.

I know lots of guys would prefer to be super-casanova, but really, you should treat anyone you're trying to pursue romantically as a person. You're looking for someone to understand you, and they're looking for someone to understand them. This means give and take, back and forth, and actually listening and replying with semi-thought-out answers. Getting along is actually really helpful, contrary to what most romantic comedies and other forms of media advocate. That requires understanding on both sides.

Thirteen is dead now, but for everyone who will want to know in the future:
1) If it's safe to do so, turn off the stove
2) Use fire extinguisher. If you don't have a fire extinguisher in or near your kitchen, you are living very, very wrong.

If you don't have a fire extinguisher or the one you have is bork, try these:
3) take a pot far larger than the box and put it over the box
4) If no pot of suitable size, find a thick towel/blanket or thick tupperware and use those to completely cover it (thin towels/tupperware will just be burned through before the fire will use up the now-limited oxygen

Water should be used as a last resort, and not at all if there is oil nearby or the box contains something oily. (The water will just make the fire worse, in that case.) If there's oil nearby, call the fire department, take your computer outside, and hold it tightly while you weep and wait for the firemen to show up.

Once the fire is out, open all windows, place fans in windows so they blow out, and leave the place for a bit. If you have a vent above the stove or in nearby bathrooms, turn those on as well. If the smoke is super thick, put a towel around your face and only open windows at the edge of the smoke, opening further-in windows as the smoke clears.

Yet another person quit at work. Our retention here is horrible, likely for a few different reasons. In an office where we're trying to staff a dozen or so people, we've had about that many quit over the past year; only six people have stayed on past then, excluding our boss/owner. (I hit two years myself today.)

It makes me worried for the company; on the outside things seem okay, but internally it causes a lot of stress because people will take so much time training new people about stuff and then the people quit and the process has to start over again. It's accounting-type stuff, so incredibly detail-oriented, and I think part of the issue is that the training system... well, doesn't exist. We've had new people trained by someone who has been here for less than two months. Perhaps if they tried to train someone to just do one or two jobs that take a long time and are necessary instead of trying to make everyone a jack-of-all-trades, people would last longer; from my far-removed vantage point, it seems that they heap far too much onto new people and drive them away, including two former military folk. (The person who has been here the longest works from home and comes off as very condescending over e-mail, not that she has diplomacy to begin with.)

The pay isn't that great, either, but I think everyone here sticks around because the office is extremely laid back. In my job as the sole programmer, where my tasks aren't nearly as time-sensitive, I can wake up one morning, say to myself "I just don't want to work today", send an e-mail saying I won't be, and no one gives a shit. I either make up the time or just take vacation hours. That's why I haven't tried to find a better-paying job yet, because with my depression this works really well. The others can come and go with a lot of flexibility, though I don't think they can take a day off for the hell of it like I can because their jobs are more time-sensitive (payroll, taxes, etc.)

We've gotten some flakes, of course, but I think the owner only advertises on Craigslist so that's not too surprising, either.

>> No. 387953

Who knows? They can't arrest everyone in Colorado and Washington, and even if they tried it'd take putting every DEA/FBI/ATF agent in those two states. As of now, Obama's said the Feds won't go after users, and the DoJ has issued a memo to prosecutors saying its "not a priority" to go after users or sellers in states where it's legal. Make of that what you will.

Is it wrong to miss and want more of chivalric romance?
It spite of its common themes rapidly falling out of modern relevance and appreciation to the point of satire and irony?

I want more genuine romantic legends from modern works. I need heroism protecting the weak. I need the beauty of nature in parallel with the works and strengths of man, where contrast and connections are shown bold and bright. I need peril leading to passion. I need a happy ending with no sign of spite or burlesque intention. I crave it.

The local take on this is that before Weed was decriminalized to any degree in Colorado, marijuana users actually composed most of the people in prison in the state. There were actually so many people that they had to set up tents in the exercise yards, for tons of people who were caught with so little weed on them that it was criminally negligible. The initial decriminalization was for like a gram of weed, if I recall, and it's just been scaling upwards since then.

I don't think it's that people hate those ideals, I think it's that by and large chivalrous tales have been the archetype for a lot of modern stories. And the big problem there (aside from chivalry's part in history being very suspect) is that while the chivalrous romance is a very nice story archetype, for a lot of people it's the only romance they ever see. Which is problematic because outside the specific circumstances of those stories, you almost never see anything really like a chivalrous romance. At least, nothing really functional, aside from some of the religious folk. Even the people who actually existed at the time when most of these medieval occurred apparently did not conform to this archetype.

In all seriousness, just go relax. Take a bit of time for yourself to do something you enjoy. Get a good night's rest.
>> No. 387995
What game is that from?

tea with sedative properties, masturbation, meditation, mantra chanting, mental control exercises:
1. Focus shifting from whatever causes you anxiety to something else. ie. Embarrassed in a public place, shift your focus to counting your heartbeats.
2. Disassociation is similar to focus shifting, but you're shifting focus from reality itself into a dreamlike state. ie. Embarrassed in a public place, shift your focus to daydreaming about Tahiti. It's also possible to temporally disassociate (go back in time to when you felt safe).
3. Transference is similar to focus shifting, if a person or situation makes you anxious, transfer your attitudes from something comfortable to something uncomfortable. ie. Boss makes you anxious, try picking out qualities that remind you of your mother (or someone you like) so you can transfer your goodwill from one person to another and resolve the anxiety.
4. Situational fragmentation is different from the previous three, you take what causes you anxiety and you overanalyze it until it loses power, same as how a joke stops being funny if you explain it in detail. ie. Embarrassed in a public place, think about why you're embarrassed, who's causing it, what are their intentions, and why.
5. Willpower is a technique that's the hardest to master and takes years of practice, probably not worth attempting for a novice. You essentially force yourself to believe you are not anxious, you grab your entire belief system 1984-style and twist it until there's no anxiety anymore.

So. Me and my brother sort of got into a passive fight with our parents.

We where stuck playing a boring card game like we always do with them. Even though any time we want to do something else my mom insists on doing what she wants. And during the 3rd of 5 long rounds we couldn't take the drudgery or the obnoxious 'happy middle class family' behavior that they seem to adopt during family time. We explained the game was boring and tiresome, and we left. Now she's cleaning the dishes loudly and talking to us in short neutral sentences. I feel like shit for making her sad, but I really can't take any more of this "family(mom) time" crap, these passive aggressive tantrums she makes, or the guilt trips.

Fucking shit. So, a month later, my throat is still constricting. The coughing/gagging is worse, now sometimes paired with a small amount of vomiting. I have to get up from my desk every 30 minutes or so to go gag outside. I do it so often that the gagging gives me a headache.

Then last night I decide to use my vaporizer, because I haven't tried it yet and to this point nothing I've tried has done better than momentary relief. Before I went to bed it seemed to be a tad helpful (and since it could be on for hours that's better than anything else so far) but leaving it on overnight caused severe nasal drip and now the back of my mouth is extremely sore from it collecting, as opposed to the constricting that happens far lower in my throat.

Fuck this fat, worthless body. At least I finally set up a doctor's appointment for Tuesday, hopefully he will know what to do.

Did you cook both at the same time? That would be your problem. You want to cook the pizza half-way first, then put thawed nuggets on top if you want to have anything other than utter crap.

That matters more to people who have smokers in their families, sand have lived with it and really can't stand it/don't partake. Generally, so long as you smoke outside, it doesn't stain the couches and carpets, which don't get washed regularly, and tend to stink more than clothing does.

So I've been following a "professional cosplayer/model" on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/EveeBeau). She does her own sewing and prop creation (when possible) and does some non-cosplay modeling. Very attractive lady, seems quite nice, and between the cosplay/sewing has a geek side.

She does, of course, post photos of herself in her cosplay or in stages of her cosplay as the costumes progress. Being a rather attractive woman to begin with, the cosplay angle only makes her hotter to many (myself included), and honestly it's starting to make me feel kind of like a creep, for some reason. It doesn't help when I look at comments and see the standard "so hot", "I'll be in my bunk", etc.

I don't know why, though; this is her page that she moderates and she willingly posts all of it herself. Maybe it's the whole thing of her being way out of my league, so I don't deserve to follow her and look at the pictures she puts up or something...

Well, I decided to give "Girl B" (my now ex-colleague) a ring, just because I hadn't had any contact with her in a fortnight, and I thought it'd be polite, us having exchanged numbers and all... and I asked if she wanted to have a drink sometime. She said she'd get back to me with a day when she's free

I still haven't talked to "Girl A" since Christmas Eve (she seems to be on facebook a lot, but we seem to keep missing each other) and it's not that we're not friendly, but... that seems to be it. Nothing wrong with that, but I guess I had higher expectations. It really doesn't help that I've only seen her for about 4-5 hours over 3 months, whereas Girl B is somebody I've seen almost every day for two months. But that's because of the commitments me and Girl A have made to our lives, and on our last date, she waited a whole hour for me to get there (the trains were fucking appalling) so... yeah.

Am I being a scumbag for asking Girl B for a drink without seeing how things with Girl A pan out, or am I just overthinking things?

Right now, A is in Ireland with her folks, but she comes back tomorrow (I think... like I said, it's been a while since we last spoke). Both of them live a stone's throw away from the city centre, which is half an hour's train ride for me.

The main reason I'm freaking out is because my uncle cheated on his wife, and my older brother cancelled his engagement with his girlfriend of 6 years, and is now dating the woman his ex assumed he was cheating on her with

You might as well tell us what was done and who did it. It's not like anyone here hates anyone else for any extended period of time. "Drama" here is like 2 days max.

Also I'm just curious because I haven't seen anything around here and maybe it's because I'm dumb or maybe I just don't pay enough attention. IDK

nothing outright terrible. just... troubling. i usually get nice or hilarious rude anonymous asks on my tumblr.

one anon posted the following.

If you were a lady I’d want to bang you more than I already do (which is a fair amount, but not too much so that it’s weird or something).

Which... was in fact very weird an somewhat distressing since a) if the person does know me well enough to joke about this, he/she wouldn't need to be on anon, b) if this anon is typing something like this AND knows the extent to which i am upset by non-consensual objectification and sexual entitlement, this anon is barking up the wrong tree and i do not put up with that.

there's a point where joking about sexism and objectification isn't fun or funny. it's no longer self-aware humor, and i'm firmly against it.

however, if this anon and i actually have this good of a rapport, why the fuck you anon, son? and why you fantasizing me as a woman just to get your rocks off? i don't mind the idea of being a woman, but if it's just so it's easier to get off, that's fucked up.

unrelated but i just remembered that pym needs to learn to write better holiday texts. he's really good at unintentionally sounding like a goddamned thoughtless cunt. like... blatantly extra effort to sound like a careless shitstain. why would you do that? self-defeatist stuff isn't worth my time.

So my constricting throat got worse... until Thursday, when I was slammed with a head cold. And then no constriction.

And then my head cold started wearing off yesterday, and now I have a sinus infection. :/ Good thing I saw the doc today, got some antibiotics that should clear everything up. I hope.

my htc has saved my ass numerous time, but even though i don't use it often at all i can see how someone could get addicted to fiddling with it all the time (like my sister) if they were that sort of person. i think it's important to have even a basic mobile phone though. you don't actual need a smartphone specifically.

I got an old iphone from my cousin so I started using that and it's nice to be able to have a GPS, MP3 player and phone all in one.

i'm a scientist, not a physician, but this seems like a very believable case of some auto-immunity syndrome. not necessarily life threatening, but under duress, your immune system has to fight off something else.

i don't have any conclusive proof and i'd need a reading on the orchestra of antibodies present before and after the cold left. just a suggestion that this may be worth looking into for that reason.

but... one important note. nocebos. if you believe something enough, your body may experience it, so don't take my word for it. like i said. not an expert. just look into it if you can, yeah?
>> No. 388291
...how are you posting?

Yeah. I saw a doc on Tuesday, but since I was still suffering the head cold the throat thing was gone and I couldn't give him much to go on except trying to explain. He gave me some antibiotics (since I also have a sinus infection, but that wasn't happening before the head cold) and said to call back in two weeks if I'm not better to get a recommendation for an ENT who can look down my throat.

Also, I have pretty bad allergies (still controlled by OTC meds, thankfully) so my body is always fighting something; there's no need to make a new thing to fight.

humans/primates in general are innately built with an understanding of fairness. even if it's not just to impose that fairness, when someone else gets something we don't or we see that something isn't distributed equally in some way, we feel that we are betrayed.

it's right sometimes. it's wrong often. you're not broken. you just need to learn what to do with those feelings.

envy is natural but it comes from a place of misunderstanding how things ought to be given. especially things we need.

>> No. 388309

well... that feels a little pandering.

it's patently obvious that what this person is doing is complete and utter garbage, but he already knows that. that's kind of important to how i responded here.

i'm trying to point out something he can work with so that maybe he can understand his situation, stop being so shitty to people he cared about, and maybe act like the human being he already is. most of the time people are shitty not because they're patently evil but because they have shitty conditioning/beliefs or they just don't know what to do with what they're feeling and turn it into something to hurt others.

i try to take the high road to empathize with people because we all do awful shit to each other. holy crap, i'm starting to get all "cast the first stone" on this. of course... i'm not comparing this anons actions to biblical adultery... which... may or may not have even been unethical. i'm saying we're not going to get anywhere if we don't figure out what to do with this where we are now.

the first step, of course, anon, is to stop manipulating and hurting other people because of your personal bad feelings. never take anything out on someone, especially someone you care about, and especially if it's because of something that's your problem. figure this shit out. preferably with a counselor/psychiatrist.

I wasn't trying to pander, I do appreciate when people look past the initial "oh god what is wrong with you" to try to help or look for reasoning behind the actions(except when everyone was calling that anon who was cheating on his fiance "beautiful," that really rubbed me the wrong way), I'm just not capable or willing to do so in situations like that.
Sorry if I came across as insincere.
That isn't even a little true. The only times I remember even talking about how fucked up something was with more than a passing comment was, again, Cheater-Anon, and that one dude ages ago who was FURIOUSLY defensive about not having any sort of mental disorder despite posting several instances that indicated a fundamental lack of understanding/severe difficulty in everyday social interaction, to the extent that Aspergers seemed like a strong possibility worth checking out.
And I was actually polite and trying to be helpful with that second one until he started to be a huge jerk and drag it up in unrelated threads.
Last I heard he had a hormonal imbalance or something though and was actually taking treatment for it. He apologized for bein a jerk. Pretty OK guy outside of the bursts of frustrated rage.
>> No. 388315

Meh, I'd say more like jealousy driven by loneliness, maybe an inability to perform initially. Emotionally, he had consigned himself to having a friend, but where he was reliant on that emotional bond, she wasn't because his emotional bond did not provide for her the way she wanted to be provided for. There's a variety of reasons that might be, at this point, it just is. The reaction of burning them both is not a positive reaction, even if he did need to move away from them emotionally somehow. But it is not un-understandable, it is not devoid of reason or true motive, and, as Ferro pointed out, the guy understands that his reaction was actually a bad one. This doesn't actually fit the criteria for a true sociopath.
