    lately i have been thinking because of the increasing amount of internet suicides
    that have been happening do people prefer to die with someone instead by themselves. Do you guys agree or disagree and have you ever considered internet suicide before? I have to say yes to both questions because whenever i do something i always feel more secure if someone is doing the exact same thing as myself and i would rather commit suicide with people who understand what i am going through than doing by myself with no one who understands me and feeling like i have nothing left.

    Could you explain what an "internet suicide" actually is?

    But yeah I would like a suicide pact if thats what you mean. But then again if I had someone that clode to do it with me, I'd wanna live with them....
  3. I have, yes.
    I was even offered before.
    But you know what?
    I only want myself to die.
    I don't want others to.
    Bit even more so selfish, I think.

    So, that's why I'll always, if/when I try again, do it by myself.

    yeah I almost really did suicide pact once. It's so much easier and more comforting when your not alone.

    I could never......I'd most likely try to talk them out of it. But I've been a loner most of my life, maybe that's the reason. I really don't need anyone/don't want anyone there if.................

    If you need a suicide pact/internet suicide to do it, then what you are really saying is that you need a reason to do it because you have doubts. Same thing goes with people who congregate to child porn sites or sites like NAMBLA. They are looking for validation because they know that what they are doing is wrong, so they need an accomplice.

    I have maybe thought about it a time or two but really, all it amounts to is putting one more obstacle between yourself and actually doing it. I think the psychology of it seems pretty simple. Even if the person doesn't realize it, they might be intentionally trying to introduce a person who will be there at the scene and try to save them. Or give them an excuse not to do it because the other person "chickened out".

    In the end, it wouldn't be any easier because our bodies are just not wired for self termination.

    And there's the ethical issue as well. No matter what happens to me, I wouldn't want to think I might have made someone else's death possible. I know myself better than anyone else and I have too many doubts to actually do it. There's no way I could know another person well enough. Suicide is not a group activity.

    i would think if you get into a pact as such you are incouraging suicide therefore you are a part of conspiracy to commit murder or something like that. and if your suicide fails? what then? do you get charged for being an accomplis? hmmm, no thanx.
  9. ive considered it before, but wouldnt ever go through with it,. id also be more likely to try and help the other person to not attempt, its just the way i am i guess.

    You are right it is a suicide pact but it is when people meet over the internet and agree to commit suicide

    There's no way I'd be comfortable with that. I couldn't let someone else hurt himself. Also, as awful as I feel about myself...I don't know that I'd actually go through with suicide. It gets so tempting, but something in me gets a knee jerk reaction from the actual contemplation.

    I'm confused. I've tried to understand what a "internet suicide" is however in this thread we're talking about pacts?

    Let me try to decipher this.. an internet suicide isn't really called an internet suicide. Someone commits suicide but leave trails of reasoning on the internet? Is that it?

    A suicide pact would be wonderful, but i dont know anyone who could deal with doing that.

    But i understood it as someone helping you to kill yourself, i dont want anyone else to kill themself with me (as in no one i know), unless of course they are totally suicidal themselves.
