Do you have an imaginary friend?

I tried to create a tulpa once. Because I’m a weird lonely person. It ma infested as a bird. But I can also imagine real people alongside me. It’s nice to imagine because they say and do the right things.

I used to, not so much an imaginary friend but I imagined my toys were real, they had different personalities and I would tell them my secrets

@SophieSmiles the imagination looks after us…

@MayaHope at times it’s the only safe place

Yes, he's bought a Fender Air Guitar like mine that he's brought to our jam sessions.
The Amp's giving us trouble though, we can't get no sound out of it.

Even so, I think our band has promise.

@MasterLee he will be Baldwin Beardsley, a walmart cashier who collects buttons and knits with old ladys for the conversation.
Rambler · M
in a sense yes, but i think of them more as real people who i have not yet meant and perhaps never will

@TheOneyouwerewarnedabout well when I’m in the pool smiling at George Ezra, I figure he’s not there…
@MayaHope we are the music makers - Wonka
MayaHope · 41-45, F
@TheOneyouwerewarnedabout I will eternally dance to the music that nobody likes

Hell yeah, best kind of friends
MayaHope · 41-45, F
@Ferric67 because our consciousness delivers what we need?

I had an imaginary pet Hippopotamus. Used to drive my folks crazy telling them they couldn't sit in the chair because my Hippopotamus was there.....
Then my Grandparents took me to a zoo. Somehow my pet Hippo disappeared after that. I don't remember any of it, but my family sure did.
I was probably 3 or 4.

Nope -- it would make my teddy bears feel insecure.

We all have our ways of coping...
MasterLee · 56-60, M
No I skipped that phase
SarithBorn · 18-21, M
no strangely enough. 🤔
Wiseacre · F
Yes, as a small child...

Just because you can’t see or hear him how do you know he’s an imaginary friend? Oops I think I just made him mad at me, it’s supposed to be our secret. Ummm nope I don’t have one ,don’t know what you’re talking about. 🙃

The memories of such ghosts still haunt like might-could-will have beens.

All that remains are the memories of voices within.
I’m fascinated by Tulpae, but I don’t have the patience or imagination to create one myself. The power of the mind is amazing!!

Last time i checked, all 56 of my personalities had imaginary friends! 🤷.
It's kind of hard to get them all together at once to ask... 🤪🤣😄
PoeticPlay · 51-55, M
Just because YOU don't see them, doesn't mean that they aren't there.
Elisbch · M
Of course, I can't imagine not having one. 🤷.... and... So have famous people..LOL 🤣

Mattypp · 56-60, M
I had one for a long time
dsrice · 56-60, M
Not since I was a kid.
His name was Binker. He played board games with me.

Also, I have some experience creating tulpas. They were effective enough to have an impact on other people when unleashed.
