My Story (Desc). Back in 2008 everyone at my highschool had just found out about FJ and they all started creating accounts and stuff so i thought hell why not t

Back in 2008 everyone at my highschool had just found out about FJ and they all started creating accounts and stuff so i thought hell why not this could be alright and on that day 'whatevergoes' was created ever since i created that account i was never off of FJ, i never commented much never did much with content either. Over the course of a few months i was friends with 4 people and there was one specific person i always talked to (i can't remember the username his real name was Ryan) but hell me and this guy spoke for ages it was awesome and then a few months later the fun came to an end, this guy said he had to go away something about family problems and at the time i thought nothing of it, (just the usual, sorry to hear about that make sure to come back soon) something like that.

A few weeks later...

He came back online i tried to talk to him but i never got any replys,and i saw that his account disappeared
yep he deleted it. i never saw him again. after that FJ was pretty boring so i did the exact same i left. It was almost 3 years before i stumbled across funnyjunk again and remember about Ryan so i made the account 'ateliertotori' to try and find him again (i know it's stupid to start now) and with getting banned so much i eventually ended up with 'goldendarkness'

tl;dr i lost an old fj friend in 2008 and i came back in 2012 to look for him.

i honestly don't know where you went my friend but whatever happened i wish i could have said something that day to help you.

OP and fellow Funny Junkers, I have a similar story with a rather sad ending about a friend from Xbox Live...   
> Be more, 2006, playing Halo 2 team slayer on Beaver Creek (ah the memories)   
> Random annoying little 			****		 on my team, bitched about me picking up the sniper rifle, in a relatively good mood, I let him have his sniper, he felt bad after acting like a douch and invited me to his game after we won the match   
> Turned out to be pretty cool guy, same age as me (16 at the time), introduces me to a friend of his named Jordan   
> Jordan is badass, cooler than his friend is and better at Halo 2, become really good friends   
> Played lots of Halo 2 together, Forza Motorsports and tons of other original Xbox games   
> 360 comes out, still kicking it, playing COD 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and some other games, went in chat alot, talked about school, girls, and other things in life, even invited me down to orlando, FL near where he lived if I ever visited   
> his friend I met him through  left xbox, ecame a PC gamer   
> Jordan disappears for a bit,  eventually comes back after being  gone for a summer, said his dad smashed his xbox in a drunken rage one day   
> Stays playing xbox again, 			*****		 cool for a while   
> 2008, he dissapears again even longer time this time, haven't heard from him in 6-8 months   
> January 2009, playing Fallout 3 (got it for xmas), Jordan comes back online for the first time in a long ass time, sends a chat message, we chatted for a bit but I was really sucked into Fallout 3, couldn't remember what we even talked about.   
> Didn't hear from him for four years straight after that day   
> One day sitting in college class last April, randomly think about him one day and how he's been missing for 4 years   
> Barely anyone left on his Xbox friends list, can't find him on Facebook, MySpace, or anywhere   
> I knew his full name and hometown, decided to go on a manhunt to find him on Google   
> Ended up finding his obituary, he died in 2009

Wow. Sorry for the loss I had something similar except he just disappeared but anyways this is the first person I see someone who is also from Orlando.

Yes, thank you for the positive comments. I'm 99% sure it was my friend from Xbox, to be exact he lived in Altamonte Springs, FL. I knew his full name and the age matched up, I also had a photo of him (on my website we used to upload stupid photos and things from video games), the face was dead on it was a small picture on the obituary, it had to be him... I also know he had a brother and the obituary said he left behind a brother.
It was tough. Honestly I felt more disturbed than upset. I've been living life, making memories, and this guy I played Xbox is gone, a lifeless corpse, never to go to college, never to get married, his life wasn't perfect but he never got to get his chance. To make it worse, I was going through an extremely difficult break up (my then-girlfriend left me because he was a closet lesbian). I could have used an old friend. But sadly, we couldn't and will never reconnect.

I tried to find friends/family of his on Facebook. I was unable to reach out to anyone. It would have been nice to get an official confirmation and how he died. You know, this friend of mine, unfortunately he WAS a stoner. He liked growing his own marijuana and getting drunk underage. I was his friend because he was an outcast on xbox. Alot of people would fight with him over Xbox, not many people gave him a chance.
I think he had mental problems. I think his personal life was very troubled behind the vocal cool-guy persona. I couldn't find a death certificate, I even paid on a site to get one. If I had to assume, I think he may have either OD'ed or got in a serious accident, possibly driving or doing something else stupid. Maybe he event commit suicide. I wish I knew what happened but I guess there's not much of a point in looking into it further.

That's life though. In his memory I have kept him on my Xbox friends list (even though I plan on retiring from Xbox when Xbox One comes out). I try to appreciate life a little more after learning of his fate.

Dude... no story has touched me like that in a long time.
User avatar #5 - howunexpected (08/13/2013) [-]
Dude... nobody ever leaves any personal info on here. Like, even people I consider close friends on here don;t even know my last name.
There are so many Ryans on here that I doubt you'll be able to find him.
My suggestion is to contact Darius Negrophallus and see if he'll be a merciful god and look through your deleted account friends and/or messages. Maybe then, with a username, someone on here will know his real name or what happened to him. Truly, thats the only idea I have. And I don't even know if Darius Negrophallus would have that info anymore, as the account was deleted and was from so long ago

There was that blackout thing that one time where a bunch of **** got deleted or something like that. That's why some of my favorited posts don't have the specific date i favorited it, it just says "Before 01/07/10" as the date.
It'd be great if Darius Negrophallus did save that **** , but I honestly doubt he has it.

Brings me back to that hilarious ********* over lost thumbs.

I'm pretty sure Darius would just tell him to **** off or something. He is pretty mean.

I really Can relate, but it was with runescape instead Q.Q
User avatar #72 to #45 - edlias (08/14/2013) [-]
I have the same feeling. Ive been off runescape now longer than i was on but i miss a lot of my old friends on there. I log on maybe once a year to check how many days ive been offline and that my account still exists but my friends list consists of offline names.

And now everyone changed their names so I have no idea who any of my old rs friends where...
#46 to #45 - anon (08/14/2013) [-]
I rarely play runescape, and it's been a long time since I've last played. So a lot of my friends on there quit.

Any time I do log on, it's always just a massive list of "OFFLINE", and at the top I see the oldest friends I had.

Feels batman.

I like you, you're one of those people that are on another level compared to others. Just from this post I can tell you're different, and I love that. Mostly because I can relate to some extent, and taking into account the post you just made, I'd say you don't need to find him. Everyone chooses their own path, and even if you do find Ryan, you're not gonna find the same person you were talking to 4 years ago.

This feels too close to home, because I know from experience that you never lost him, he's still with you, but you will lose him if you try to "find" him again.


Okay, this ended up way to sappier than I expected, probably got way off topic too. Meh, w/e.

My name is Ryan, and I quit in 2008 due to my family moving to a military base in Seoul, Korea for a few years and other reasons. I made a new account because my dad retired from the Air Force and I know live in the U.S. again.

This seems like a good time to do this, just for funsies.

I had a friend wayyyy back in middle school, named Dylan. He actually showed me FJ, back when I was a it of a newfag, being 12 and all. He was pretty much my best friend, went through my first gf and stuff and he helped me through all that. Anyways I had to transfer schools and never saw him after that. Tried facebook, myspace or whatever was popular, and nothing.
By the way I went to Crystal Lake Middle in Pompano Beach, FL. So I guess it's worth seeing if Dylan is still out there?
