*Grin* Well, there may be "one" eventually, given that some people on the forum are already married (human to human marriage, that is).

Please consider supporting Tulpa.info.

This thread has been approved by waffles. I'm pinning it for further review by the Guide Approval Team.

Tulpa-creation is not a sprint, but a marathon, and you will eventually get to where you want to be.

RE: JDBar's Guide to Telling People About Your Tulpa
Well in a way this is a bit of a silly guide, but it could save some of the forcers from a lot of trouble when they don't really think where they should keep their power level in check. And that's what guides are also supposed to do, eh?

Approved.

Approved.

Definitely helps in promoting forcers to contemplate things more with one of the most difficult and perplexing things to deal with.

Disapproved.
I can only see revealing ones' 'power level' to others as being a distraction from their forcing. Tulpas are a personal process, and other persons would only detract from their work. Your words make sense, but can be shortened down to knowing of "involuntary commitment to psychiatric examination", and, "use common sense."

By the time one has finished creating a tulpa, they will be ready to decide on their own if and how to reveal tulpas to others. Worrying about it before is merely additional unnecessary mental clutter.

I partially agree. Other people can easily become a part of a tulpa's development, especially to act as a deterrent to existential crises - a growing pain that many tulpas experience. Although my guide is not meant to debate the practicality of telling other people about your tulpa, that is up to the host and his trustees of course, but rather things to think about before actually doing so.

The first word of this guide is "after", there is no endorsement to doing all this before or during the creation process, and not everyone will know all the things to ask themselves when the time comes. This has nothing to do with "revealing a power level", and entirely to do with a topic that could literally change the entire course of your relations with others -- something very serious that I don't believe every person on this forum can handle by intuition, especially considering past incidents such as user Goldsmith's case.

Disapproved for guides due to the seemingly heavy personal bias behind its write-up. may be acceptable for resources.

Approved for Resources, although if most people want it to be approved for Guides, they can count this vote for that as well. I'm not sure it can fit in Guides as it doesn't guide you through any tulpa process, it just helps you make a decision which is not directly related to your interaction between you and your tulpa (although could be related to your interaction with other people, or the tulpa's interaction with them).

This feels more like a resource for deciding if you should reveal to someone else that you have a tulpa - sort of a checklist to help you make a cost-benefit analysis.

I've heard of one case where someone told his wife about his tulpa (at the tulpa's request), which eventually resulted in a divorce (although they may have been other circumstances at play, but it's also hard to say if this didn't trigger it).
There was also that one incident with Goldsmith where a circle of his friends wanted to commit him for only *wanting* to make a tulpa.

In general, there could be some benefits for yourself and your tulpa to reveal it to others, but there's also risks of potential psychiatric commitment (and everything else that could follow from this, such as issues with finding a job), to relationship issues, ostracism and more. It's a decision that should be weighted carefully.

It may also be worth considering how multiples handle this sort of "coming out" to other people. I've read of one case where someone mentioned it to their boss and co-workers and it was mostly fine (in their case, one of them was doing a lot of the work, and it was obvious to other people that it seemed as if two people were doing the job there as their personality was quite different - which did clear up things for the boss and the co-workers.
I also remember another similar situation with Tristan and Atasco where I think they were open about it at work (where Atasco spent a lot of time, enough to have their own different nametags).
In such cases where a tulpa actually interacts with the physical world as much as the host, revealing it would probably depend on how much the tulpa wants it, how culturally acceptable would it be and how you expect people to treat you after it.

Well, I'll clarify my approval as for Resources. This isn't really a tulpa guide in a conventional sense. What it is is a good resource on various legal stuff.

Now that we actually have a board for resources, this would be better there than as a guide.
