My SO and I are no longer sexually compatible and it's killing me. We already hardly flirt or do anything sexual anyway, but every time I try to talk about a new fetish or something to try to spice things up, they're against it or think it's dumb/not interesting.

They used to be so kinky. I don't know what changed. I will literally try ANY fetish besides shit-related stuff and it sucks that I have no one to do it with or even talk about with anymore. I wish my SO appreciated the fact that they could try anything/do anything to me and I'd probably love it.

Pic related, some kinky shit I'll never get to try

I lost my virginity to someone from Tinder recently, I thought I wouldn't care, that the concept of virginity would mean nothing to me. I'm really sexual and just wanted to get it over with. I was also on Diazepam and probably wouldn't have done it if I wasn't. But now after he's slept with me he's blocked me on everything and I feel so used and worthless. I'm a fucking idiot.

I can relate, anon. I was dating an asshole guy who didn't actually care about me, and I just saw him as a friend, but I finally lost my virginity to him, mostly because I'm pretty sexual too and I've waited a long time. I thought I wouldn't regret it but he made me feel guilty about it when I dumped him. He said something like "wow, girls usually think their virginity means something. Why would you dump me after a week since we've slept together?" As if that meant I had to stay with him.

I found some inappropriate pictures of my mom in her phone gallery that she took when I was just scrolling through to look at pictures from our trip over the weekend and I feel mortified. There's like 20 cleavage shots and also a really nasty one of her with kissy lips and cleavage and it just makes me sick to look at like I've lost major respect for her. There are people in their 20s who are mature enough to know these kinds of photos are distasteful. She's almost 50 and watching her act like a slutty teen is fucking disgusting and weird. Why can't she act her age if she's going to flirt around with guys?

Do you guys think I'm being too judgemental about the photos?

She's also an idiot who apparently borrowed 5,000 dollars TO this guy who she was fucking who I smelled from a mile away was treating her like shit. All they ever did when she visited him like once a month (he lives an hour away) was have sex and then sleep. He gave her an std too and now she has to go to the gynecologist. She pretty much paid someone she just met to give him monthly sex and paid for an std and surprise surprise, he doesn't want to pay her back. Then she bitches about how she's so poor and I'm the cause of it. She also told me that she did other stuff for him and when I asked her what, she wouldn't answer me which made me lose all trust for her. I don't know what's so bad that she won't tell her daughter.
I'm not sure what to think of her anymore. I just can't respect her if she has secrets and after knowing of her repulsive actions and behavior. All she ever does is ignore me too to text other people on her phone and post pictures of super mundane shit no one likes on her Facebook. I mean literally she took 8 pictures of our ceiling yesterday and we've been living here for 14 years. Nice to know Facebook and acting like a whore is more important than me. Fucking christ.
And I'm sorry if this got a little off track.

Two months ago I found an abandoned kitten. Maybe 10 days old. Barely living. I took it home even though he looked so bad I was scared to even touch him.
I fed him with milk every few hours, day and night. He lived. Even the vet was shocked, impressed.
Because he had lower immunity because of not being fed momma's milk, he got a little sick. Coughed sometimes, nothing serious, but we had to get him on antibiotics. He was getting better.
And then two days ago he refused to eat
He was still very lively and happy…
Yesterday he was too weak to play, not eating, vomiting.
Today he died on my arms
Few hours ago I still believed he could make it. He started drinking water, I fed him a bit, he was getting up to the litterbox. And then suddenly he was in agony. For about two hours I waited for him to die, unable to ease his pain.
I have no idea what happened. It was so fast and sudden. Two days ago we were playing… I can't believe it.
I'm so angry with the world, I don't think I will ever forgive it. It's so so unfair. I feel like a mother who lost her child, I honestly can't imagine getting myself together after this

Yeah, I'm sorry for your loss. The vet had to put down my lovable lab who was only 2 years old last month because he drank some antifreeze.

Do you ever feel like your friend is only friends with you to scout out hookups? My friend has become fuck buddys with two of my friends since I've known him and its wrecked the group dynamic entirely. I just want a normal friend group but no, he feels he needs to get his dick out and poke it in some holes. Doesn't help that he left the previous girl in the dark, asking for nudes when he was ringing my other friend everyday.
I hate the constant posts fuckbuddy 2 makes everyday about "missing u" and "i just cant be around him all the time im so sad" and whenever I hang out with them, they just don't want me there at all. I feel like one day I''l snap at them and let loose alot that I don;t mean. Im just frustrated and confused.

Anon, my dogs litter last year had 2 puppys that died from it from just being too weak, one was under my watch. It was fine one minute and when i looked back, had gone cold and not breathing. It crushed me and tbh, I find myself still thinking "what if". However, its just how cruel life can be. I'll never forget sobbing on the phone to my parents after I'd tried for 30 minutes trying to bring back this small dead puppy but it's sadly just life.

On Sept 13, our yellow lab mix dog of 7 years passed away. It will be one year. The worst part is there was no saving him at the end.
For years we thought he had vertigo and just gave him ear medicine for infections, then over a week he suddenly stopped eating, could barely get up, his eyes drooping bad. We had to wait an entire weekend to get to a real vet and by then he was legit bones. The moment we got to the vet he started throwing up, having whole body seizures and death groaning. He passed in my partners arms. What was worse or I guess for the good, Thunder(the dog)'s sister was in the room too. I stood in the corner closing my eyes because I couldn't bare to watch his last moments.
The vet said just from seeing his symptoms she was positive he had brain cancer.

I'm not looking forward to next month.

I keep having thoughts about quitting and walking out on my shit job and have once again started talking to my close friends about quitting. It all around makes me depressed because the shit I deal with for not even $9/hr frustrates me to tears, but looking at job postings and thinking how the college diploma I just got is worth nothing and if I quit now I face becoming a NEET when I now have financial obligations.
I was ready to go in tomorrow and leave my 2 weeks notice but I wish I wasn't here anymore, how will that feeling change if I can't find an actual career-type job? It's so stupid how I'm so hesitant to leave when I get paid so little and hate what I do.

My friend, her boyfriend (of 2-3 months, lives in a different city so they see each other like once a week) and me went out on Saturday, got a bit drunk in the park and then my friend had a breakdown. Full on crying (and then laughing), lying in the middle of the road, I even had to tackle her to the ground so she wouldn't jump in front of a car. She's been mentally unwell (ED and psychologically abusive parents, mostly mother) for quite some time now, but she hasn't yet told her bf the details.
While we were trying to calm her down and get her home, her boyfriend told me he wants to talk to me later about her.
So now he's messaged me on facebook and wants to talk about what's going on. I guess he wants me to tell him the details about what's going on, or at least confirm what he's thinking (he has a hunch about her ED, I guess, and he already knows her mother is a piece of shit).

I'm not sure what to do. Do I tell him what I know? Do I tell my friend? Do I tell my friend, not tell the bf I told her, and share with him only what she wants me to share?!
I've never been in this situation before and I'm completely lost.

I think it depends on how understanding the boyfriend is. If you think he'll stand by her despite her problems then I suggest speaking to her first and explaining that he's concerned and wants to understand what she's going through better. Tell her that he came to you first but you didn't want to tell him without her permission. I think if you make it clear that both you and him are coming from a good place she'll open up about it. Hope things work out okay regardless anon.

I've been with my bf for 6 years, he's been talking about marriage but idk if I can do it. I'm so deeply in love with him, even after all this time I find myself amazed by how much I adore him. That said, I have this weird complex with thinking that when we get older together, in our late 30's and up, that he's gonna start longing for a younger woman. Society always makes older men out to be the 'silver fox' type and women just become undesirable. I feel attractive as of now, but I can't handle the thought of him drooling over some 22 year old when I'm his 45 year old wife, still madly in love with him.

I've been bothered by this since my friends announced that they were dating however; She's 16 and he's 21. The age gap has been bothering me so much that I've been stressed out for some reason. Maybe I have too much of a heart.

I'm thinking about still being their friend, distance myself somewhat and be there if he starts being creepy towards her but I'm not 100% sure if this is the right thing to do.

hm, having dated a guy with a bit of a scandalous age gap (started dating when I was 15 and he was 18, we're still together and happy and shit) you have to look for the signs that he's with her for her age, where I'm from 16 yr olds dating 21 yr olds is nothing new and isn't that big of a deal since its the age of consent and all
but some signs are
>he doesn't feel bad about the age gap or is worried about other people thinking
>he often grooms her, getting her into bdsm or other stuff like that
>he wants her to look younger than she actually is
>having fetishes such as ddlg, he wants her to act like a little girl, make her call him nicknames for him to assert "dominance"
>he likes if she looks younger than she actually is
>he gets overprotective, wants her to isolate herself, doesnt trust her when she goes out
>he accuses her of cheating a lot for no reason
>she's naive, impressionable
>they move too fast (sending nudes after a month, saying I love you after a week, talking about marrying etc etc)



if he starts being creepy towards her, the last thing you should do is leave her alone, teach her whats right and whats wrong, but do it in a knowledgeable sane way, don't call her up or whatever and say "he's only with you because you're young and naive!" it will just make her want to rebel, gather up facts and sources, explain to her what's going on, and tell her what might happen, tell her the signs, suggest to her what she might do in that situation, but trying to get her to quit cold turkey will never be good for either of you, don't back away, just explain to her, stay with her, and sometimes if nothing else works, you have to just be a listening and helper, until something serious (rape, physical abuse, black mailing, etc) happens or they actually break up

This is kinda a weird thing to vent about but I hate that, as soon as you are on a mainly English speaking website all the Americans on there assume that everyone else is American.
Let's say someone is talking some shit about "white people having no culture" it sounds like those people forget that most Europeans are white too but we actually have different cultures.
Also there are so many Americans who just forget about the rest of the world in general. Like there are big news outside of Fox news.

I've lived in the US so I have some more experience than only through the internet.
Americans are mostly nice people it just pisses me off that ya'll think that there is nothing important outside of the US and that the US is superior to every other country because muuh freedom, guns and fast food.

Also what kinda pisses me of too, is when Americans with let's say Italian ancestors say that they are Italian and so proud of it, while not even speaking the language, knowing anything about the culture or not having been there.

I really feel like there's something wrong with me, like for the past maybe 7-10 years.

I think it's depression but I don't want to self diagnose, the best way I can describe it is this:

>every month, maybe 2, I feel sluggish, just robot going through the motions, no real sadness or happiness like everything instead of being on a scale from 1-10, is 1-2.


>but then every so often that kind of feeling lifts off and I feel full of energy and it seems like I see everything more brighter as well.


there's way too much shit wrong and I can only vent about it anonymously, too much to fix.

sort of feels like I'm silently drowning but gotta keep up a normal front for everyone.

everyone time I get close to checking out, something creeps up to stop me, like looking after a friend or someone else needing help.

I think if it turned out that the past 8-10 years where I've felt this way and felt like a loser turn out to not be the case and I could of been happy would feel even worse.

Allow yourself to feel this, but for a few days only. Really wallow in it. After that you have to shake the dust off and get back up.

Now it's time to figure out what of the things you used to enjoy were "our things" or "your thing" if you feel me. Heartbreak fucking SUCKS, but like you said, it won't ladt forever.

No way to diagnose over the web, or like by yourself, of course, but your symptoms sound like mine, and I have a form of depression called recurrent brief depression (rbd), it's kinda like a bipolar lite if you will. Depressive episodes for me last about 3-4 days (majorly depressed) often, almost always followed by a day or two of vast energy, brighter outlook and a need to get out and do something, anything! Move all my furniture around! Get stuff done!!! After that follows a normal ish month. Dx criteria is for it not to be linked with your period. Meds helped a lot. Therapy too.
It took the bigger part of a year to get dx'ed bc they had to rule out bipolar, but knowing what this is was worth it. Polite sage for… mental health ramblings

Hello there! I am currently struggling with fears about my future. I am studying social studies in the second semester and am not really sure if I would like to continue studying this subject.
The people around me (my parents included) tell me again and again that I will never get a good job and compare me to my cousin and my brother, who is looking for something "good" (something like banker/ in finance market).
I also find a lot of the stuff I have to learn really boring and I always have to force myself every time to learn for a test or write an essay - I am also a very good procrastinator. Currently I am working at a bakery at the weekends, the work is pretty boring but I also don’t want my parents to pay for my whole education - it would make me feel guilty.
I always see all the other students at my uni studying economics, law, biology etc. and I'm a bit jealous - I'd like to have something I know I'm good at, but I really suck at maths and am not really gifted in general. Can someone give me some good advice, or is something similar happening to y’all?

I don't know if my advice would be helpful but I'll try! I studied the same as you and I finished this year when I was supposed to finish last year. As you, people told me (and still tell me) that it'll be hard to find a job that I like and that I'd should desperate search for something.
I know it's hard. It's hard because people is worrying about your future and you worry too and in my personal experience that brought me a lot of anxiety and pressure. During my second year I started wondering if what I was studying motivated me. Sometimes it's hard because we can't like all the subjects, in fact, some of them seem pointless.

>I'd like to have something I know I'm good at, but I really suck at maths and am not really gifted in general.


I quoted you because I think almost the same about me, sometimes I feel like I'm not -too- good at all.
One of my friends always compared me to him and not in a good way. I mean, he was -and still- always asking what I'd do with my life, when I'll get a job, etc., just because he thinks that people must be always reaching for something bigger, something important, that if you don't have a purpose in life you're ''worthless'. As I said, this brought me a lot of anxiety because I started to think he was kind of right and I second-guessed myself all the time. Was I that worthless? Would I ever find a job? What if I have chose the wrong path?
One day my anxiety was that bad, that I had to change my mind for good. It's obvious people is going to worry about our future, but that doesn't have to be a reason to make us fear what the future may bring. They're not us, they won't have to work for us, they won't even have to search a job for us! Life happens as it happens and - in my case - had to end my studies this year, I haven't found a job yet and I'm trying, that's what's important right now.
My advice is that you should try to not put too much pressure on you. Try to concentrate on those subjects which you like and think how far you've become, even if it seems too little, it's better than nothing. Try to focus on yourself and hink about why you started social studies in first place, what you wanted to archieve by doing this.

This might be better suited for the move abroad thread, but fuck, I hate the expat bubble. I hate how fucking unreliable and whiny (lol ironic) other foreign immigrants are in my city. They're nice but that's all they've got going for them. Not a single one of them can show up on time to shit they arrange or agree on, they have no hobbies other than getting shitfaced, and they complain about being poor and then blow all their money on beer.

I'm so glad I'm making friends with locals.

I'm not a huge fan of the expat bubble either, but sometimes it's good to hang out with people from my country. Unfortunately it's pretty complicated (to me) to make friends with locals, but I'm finally doing something outside of work with one of my workmates, so let's see how that works out.


I'm just pissed because I get pressure from my partner to be more responsible when I think I'm already adulting pretty well.

I wish I was born male so badly. I'm not transgender and I don't have body dysmorphia, but I just… I don't know? I never cared much for my gender identity and I was always comfortable doing both "girl" and "boy" stuff. But… lately I'm realizing how much I want to be a man - not in a transgender way though, but born and raised as one. Even though girls are beautiful, I appreciate the male body aesthetic much more and I'd love to have a muscly masculine bod. I would feel much more comfortable both looking and dressing as a man, even though being a girl doesn't really bother me that much. It's like - being a female feels alright to me, but the idea of me being male makes me excited and happy. Is this just my dissasociative disorder kicking in again? Is this just a weird phrase in my life? I want it to stop. It makes me so unbelievably dissatisfied and restless.

I hate the feeling of things going in my vagina, I'll try to wear tampons every now and then but they make me walk funny and feel dry and painful in me, I never really felt good putting things in my vagina anyway, not even when I masturbate, do I have something wrong with me?

Depends.I think the most common thing is for penetration with largish objects to feel like either nothing or painful if you're not super horny/lubricated. Tampons aren't really supposed to feel like anything though so either the tampon is shit quality or too big or you're just a little more sensitive than average. tl;dr you sound like the more sensitive end of normal but a gyno would be able to say for sure

Could also be that anon is not pushing them up far enough. I used to do that and it was the most uncomfortable thing in the world, rubbing against the entry until it was sore and painful.

True! I've had experienced that with both tampons and my cup. It's been a while so I forgot about that. Also gotta make sure it's at about a 45 degree angle and not straight up. Sometimes I'll even insert at what feels like almost horizontal and it'll shift on its own to the right angle.

I live in Central Europe but I'm from the states. It's nice to meet people from my state/the US, so I know what you mean, but the large group of people we hang out have been grating my nerves for awhile. Some of them are great, but they're the ones who are constantly jetting off to the their home countries or taking trips so I never see them. The people who do stick around just drive me nuts sometimes.

I'm lucky I'm in a niche hobby (lolita) and made some friends this way. I taught ESL for adults for awhile so I stayed in contact with students who wanted to hang out outside of lessons.

i can hardly stand to look at the munchie thread because it makes me so fucking frustrated. the person i'm closest to finally got tested positive an extremely painful extremely rare chronic condition that's fatal if left untreated, and it's been years without a diagnosis so it's uncomfortably close to the fatal stage. he's been side eyed by so many doctors and even told to get checked for munchausen, and the fucking munchies cling to conditions like this because it's so difficult to test positive for in a way where it doesn't usually get picked up by standard testing. i can't help but wonder if if it weren't for munchie behavior being common, would he have gotten a diagnosis sooner and thus be able to treat it when its not close to the fatal stage. I know that might not be a case so it's not helpful to wonder but shit. I just don't know what we did wrong where fucking munchies can get access to things that people in constant agony can't. I guess not enough crying and #warrior rhetoric maybe.

My husband sold our family car and bought a mini cooper. A mini fucking cooper. We have two kids both under 4 years old. Icing on the cake? The car is a piece of shit. He bought it yesterday for 4,500 and we already have to fix the steering wheel hose(600),new spark plugs(200), needed servicing (90), and very deep cleaning (I'll do it my own fucking self).Today we took it to get the a/c fixed which needed a fuck ton of repairs (400 dollars) 15 minutes after we pick up the piece of shit from the mechanic it starts smoking white grey smoke. I'm so fucking pissed off, he bought the car off of craigslist from some fucking hippie chick who already left to Cabo so we are obviously not getting our money back and now we don't have a car.

I keep going through these periods where I'll be happy and motivated and looking at life in a positive light, and the next I wake up angry and hating everything and just picking fights with everyone.

My bf and I have been good for like two weeks, without any ill feelings or snippy comments or anything since I've felt happy.

Last night I didn't even care that he slept in and we didn't get to talk (LDR), I was happy and chill and felt accomplished after making myself go to the gym, successfully studying and learning, doing a fuck ton of homework etc. but today I woke up just angry and wanting to talk to him and pick a fight.

On one hand I want him to be online and answer me but if he does I know I'll just make snarky comments about him being at a bar with friends, the other I don't want to talk to him because I'm mad and I know it'll be terrible if I do.

But even then I'm angry he's not online.

What the fuck is wrong with me? It could just be stress from working 3 hours overtime this week alone, shitty college classes and trying to study on my own that's hitting me.

I just don't want to do anything with my life today, just sleep and be angry. I got 9 hours and I'm still exhausted and everything hurts.

Well, I guess I am mad about it now. I was calm yesterday because I kept myself busy and didn't mind he wasn't there to talk to. If I can't sit and think about it, I'm fine. If I stop and ponder, I dwell and get angrier.

But today I woke up and just got a quick message and looked on discord to see he was at the pub 4 hours after he woke up. He stayed there for 3 hours and then left for after drinks at someone's house it's been almost 5 hours there.

I'm annoyed because it's like.. look, dude. I work, I go to school, my schedule is set and defined and we only have a few hours a day that we can talk. If he doesn't wake up (like last night) we don't talk. If he stays out past midnight (like today) his sleep schedule is ruined and we can't talk as much, or if at all, because he sleeps in as a result.

Once he gets off schedule, our entire pattern gets fucked and I usually end up waking up at 4am to get some time to talk before work. He doesn't ask me to, I do it because I miss him and want to chat but it still impacts my life heavily to do it. If I don't wake up at 4, and instead at 6, I get a few messages in before he sleeps at 6:30-7am because he's usually watching videos or playing games with friends.

I just get frustrated because he doesn't have responsibilities like I do. I'm studying right now to leave to teach overseas in like, 6 months. My life is stressful and needs to keep a routine thing. His life is footloose and fancy free.

I'm probably super salty about that, he has no bills to pay, no job, no school, can wake and sleep whenever he wants but I'm drowning in debt and trying to keep as positive as I can.

Got drunk as fuck last night and did a bunch of embarrassing shit. I don't remember any of it and don't want to find out, but there's physical proof (I tried to break into my own apartment because I lost my keys… I think i might have wet the bed too) and might be visual proof (people were taking pictures at the party).

I'm a recovering alcoholic who doesn't believe in the "you gotta never drink again or it'll come back" bullshit, and I have drunk normally in various occasions after I kicked the habit… it wasn't supposed to go like this.

just take that experience as proof that yea, it could easily get out of hand
>it wasnt supposed to go like this
youre aware of how shitty the situation was, youre clearly shamed, so use that energy and funnel it into being more aware next time if you still feel the need to say yes to a drink.

I remember thinking "well, he's happy, I guess I'll try to let go of these angry feelings I have since he's sick of talking about it."

He's horribly depressed right now, so that makes it hard for him to want to do anything but he does try to put effort into our relationship. even if it's sitting on a skype call while he plays games or watches something, he makes an effort to be present in my life. He even listens to me ramble about work or something I found interesting even if he doesn't know what I'm talking about.

I fully believe he loves/cares about me, so there's no doubt on that end. I think his depression and my stress are a recipe for trouble. I sometimes put too much pressure on our relationship in terms of gestures I think, but he is also forgetful and selfish. After all, we are still young.

Money is a huge problem for me as well, he's grown up poor and so have I, but I've worked really hard these last two years to earn money and keep it. But lately debts have been coming on faster than my paychecks and I've been diving headfirst into my savings without being able to put anything back in.

I think once I can land this new job, my life will be a lot clearer. I'll be earning the same monthly salary at only half the hours, which leaves me enough time to earn cash on the side. I think I just have to keep my head above water long enough to see the ships come in.

I've been looking for this NEET manga/comic for years, but I still haven't found it to this day. It was about a man who became completely isolated in a apartment and had a fear of speaking to other people. Then there was this woman who moved in to help him. He got a dog and named it after her to get used to social interaction. Every day was a step to getting back to society. He was very aggressive too in the beginning. Eventually they have sex and she leaves forever. He relapses and I can't remember why, but he stops being a little bitch and gets it together. Years later the woman who helped him was walking in the street and he comes up running to her thanking her. He has a job and family and it ends there. If anyone knows what it was called is literally helping my autistic self get over this. It genuinely irritates me not knowing lol.

Just out of curiosity, do you give all of your money to your mom? How old are you? Even if you're giving something to her for housing and shared food, you should be able to have some of the earned money for yourself. Like what kind of situation are you living in?

One of my friends is fat and I couldn't care less except for the fact that he always - and I mean - always, has to complain about everything I eat or how much exercise I do just when he's dieting or exercising. It gets on my nerves. Specially when it's evident he weights -at least- 20 lbs more than me.
He always has an excuse for his weight, and no, it's not an hormonal thing, it's not because of his complexion, it's not because some medication or something like that (it wouldn't even bother me if it was). It's just that he eats crap all the time and too much of it. And as I said, I couldn't care less. His body, his life, his rules.
Now he's claiming he's almost vegan because he decided not to eat meat and eats all the different types of rice or vegetables he doesn't like. I'm glad he's trying to be better in this aspect, it's just that when I claim I preffer burguers over fish, or veggies, he actually LAUGHS at me for it. He shames me for my laziness when it comes to do any exercise, but he'll always have and excuse for justifing him not doing anything and he'll claim ''it's not the same''.

If he cheated and you forgave him - I assume, since you're still together - you can't really justify your wrongdoings with "well he cheated at me 289279 years ago soo". What you do is only on you.
Though I don't think what you do makes you "terrible" (like anon^ said). What so bad about it, as long as you don't send nudes and stuff

So I transferred to a new college out of state and moved in yesterday (Im only a sophomore, 20 yrs old) and I had the worst panic attack I've ever had in my life, like a full on mental breakdown, after realizing this is what I thought I wanted but I'm not so sure now if it is. I'm reconsidering now if I even want to be in college, I don't care about the parties or the campus or the school spirit. My major is theoretical (PR) so its not like I'm in nursing school and NEED to be in school. The thought of dropping out is scary because I've always been a taught at school that it's the only option but I can already feel my mental health plummeting.

Because he wasn't always like that. I've known him for a few years now and he used to be so nice and helpful, he introduced me to a lot of new friends and he has good things, I think he's just jealous. I don't mean this to brag or anything, it's just that when it comes to the topic of physical appearance or another things like getting along better with some friends, he feels left out or less than me. I've tried for so many years to be nice to him, to include him in everything so he wouldn't feel left out, that now I'm just tired. Everytime I tried to discuss it, he brushed me off as I was crazy or making things up. I feel the best thing for me it's to try to avoid those topics because actually I couldn't care less, it's just tiring and I don't get anything from it. I know it's not okay to keep things between friends specially if they bother you in the slighest but I also know he'd preffer to be dead before he'd admit he feels insecure.

About 6 months ago I let a friend of 15 years manipulate me into moving in. 2 months ago again, allowed myself to be manipulated into signing the lease. The only space in the house that has any of my belongings is my room and a shelf in the bathroom. The rest of everything else belongs to my roommate. Recently, I received a text "I'm going to say this once more. I don't feel like you want to contribute to the house including its cleanliness and safety. This is from more than just eclipse prep and week. I think we need consider if you really want to live here at all. The way you act at home affects everyone in it. It causes both of us stress we don't need and I don't think we are compatible as roommates. We should talk about this in person sooner rather than later. "

To me, that sounds like - you're incompetent and I want you to move out. So I responded basically - I'll do me, you do you.. I'll try and look for another place to live but I'm broke and you know that.

I come home the next day to all of the gifts I've given over the years set in front of my door and a list of 12 household rules - including labeling food I put in the fridge on the shelf that was just cleaned out, keeping the toilet lid down, and cleaning parts of the house I've NEVER used weekly.

I understand that my roommate is frustrated at me keeping to myself in my room. And even turning the worst anxiety attack I've ever had, lasting hours and having the paramedics called I was so scared, into a personal slight against my roommate. I never asked to be cleaned up after and left to my own devices I do clean up after myself, just not in a timely enough manner I guess.

Now, the SO and SO's dog are there…likely to intimidate me. The SO has a history of violence when drunk…and is usually plastered…has threatened me and made me feel uncomfortable in my own home. The SO's dog attacks mine all the time and, while my dog is bigger, I'd my dog were to retaliate and hurt the little dog it would be my dog's fault.

Now I'm stuck in a hell of my own making, living with someone that believes themselves to be better than me and trys to control me… And it's all my fault the friendship was ruined and everything else is my fault too.

when I was 16 and pll came out I had the biggest crush on ezra, I still do anyway, but he is portrayed in a way where aria lied about her age , so he assumed she was around his age and fell for her, hence why he couldn't stay away when the truth was revealed, as well as when he went for allison when she also lied about her age, but most of the other women in the show he has been with were all around his age , his attraction never really seemed villainous to me because it's not like aria or allison were wayyyyy younger like 11-12, and they could both pass for adults, and in some places like the uk, russia, canada, some states in the USA, the age of consent is 16, in pennsylvania, people between the ages of 13-16 can be with someone as long as ig they are not more than 4 yrs older than them

Wut, she lied about her age when they first met, or manipulated it to make it seem that she was older, when they were talking about going to college aria said "im leaning toward english" when talking about her major


I honestly don't think 15 and 18 is THAT bad, but it could definitely be suspicious, since in most places 16 is the age of consent its only one yr off until they reach that age maybe less, putting it in high school terms, its like when an average freshman or sophomore dates a senior, 3 yrs isnt that much, and 18 is legally an adult but keep in mind 15 and 18 is still teenagers and theyre both as hormonal and angsty as any other teenager
However, i think in situations where this would be bad is when its clear that the person like the teen for the sole reason because they're young, not if they actually liked them, and if they like if the 14-17 yr old already looks like a child then yes its reaching pedo territory, however, if the 15+ yr old looks older than they are or like a normal person of that age, and someone thats 18 likes them and dates them because their personality and stuff then I dont see why its a big deal

My mom let me know my cat went missing today… which is nice and all, but he's apparently been gone for 3 days. I almost learned about it from my boss that lives in the same neighborhood as my parents do because my mom posted about it on the Nextdoor page, but thankfully she forgot to mention it.


Before you ask as to why my cat is not with me, I live in an apartment and my parents won't let me bring him over to live with me… despite the fact I'm the one who raised him.

And this isn't the first time she's waited to tell me one of our pets has gone missing. When I was in college, his twin brother went missing and she didn't tell me until the next time I came home… which was over a week after he went missing. I still cry about him being gone and this happened almost 3 years ago.

I honestly don't think she realizes how much them going missing messes with me. They were the first pets that I raised from kittens and was fully responsible for (vet bills/getting neutered–everything).

I really had high hopes for Game of Thrones - until the seventh season it was really a special somewhat not predictable show. But the seventh season kinda ruined it for me - it proved that this series is just like every other stupid young adult show/movie/ book. I do really love certain characters like Tyrion, Brienne, the Hound - even Cersei and Dany and Sansa - because they are so flawed and you can really identify with them and their traits in certain situations.
But Jon Snow really ruined it for me. SPOILER He is really the embodiment of the perfect special snowflake traditional ya hero image - esp. after the last episode. He is too perfect - he always gets the girl, he has perfect fighting skills became king of the north, has this tragic past of having special parents, being half Targ and having the full right to the throne - oh, and he rose from the dead just like Jesus.
I just hate him - he is like the Gary Stu of Game of Thrones. Even Dany is less Mary Sue than him - she is hot headed and kinda violent - she had to learn things the hard way and had to face consequences (her husband and child dying cause she was dumb and trusted that witch, the sons of the harpy thing cause you can't change a society from one to another day, & her losing her allies).
I really, really have a hate boner for Jon-Gary-Stu.

That's because they're going completely on their own now. They can't help but start veering towards the usual way of TV storytelling and make the good guys super, awesome wonderful special snowflake. They did make some very interesting decisions up until now but it's pretty obvious how the story is going to go.

GRRM needs to stop swimming around in his money like a fat Scrooge McDuck and finish The Winds of Winter and get on A Dream of Spring already. That's why the show was so great in the first place, they adapted from the books and the books had a lot of really interesting surprises and changes in events.

I agree, I love this series and I'm actually so bummed out that this is the direction the show is going.

A lot of the characters have become caricatures of themselves. Like they took what people liked about them and made that their entire character. Arya was always a badass but she was also just a kid and really relatable. Now she's just this flawless, impossibly strong, completely insufferable psycho. And they can't go one episode without the Hound saying cunt or someone talking about cocks. It's so fucking annoying. It's become so bro-y.

just like jon snow ridiculously trying to fight of 100.000 white walkers by himself, only so they can justify why one of the dragons is killed and that the night's king can get a dragon to pass the wall. Like okay, but why had the situation to be so ridiculously stupid? Or Jon Snow and Dany… "BOOM WERE FUCKING NOW"
Or how they killed of or send away all of the dire wolves from the stark family "because we couldnt have portraited them accordingly" more like bitch you didnt want to spend more budget on them

first of I think it's too late for that. Iirc the last season will come out in around 2 years.
He would need to have the story finished by now so it could be published or at least used for pre-production.

>I hate Jon Snow
I agree. He became a boring twat. I couldnt even think of a way to make him more interesting again.
This is only a fan theory, but I think Daenerys will have become pregnant from the one fuck they had, and Jon Snow wont touch her again, after hearing the news about her being his aunt. The series will end with Jon snow being the new night king. Like it is either a curse and he has to take the night's kings place after killing him, OR, the night's king kills him but dying doesnt turn him into a white walker because of whatever reasons, but into something like Benjen stark and he will then proceed to lead on the white walker army beyond the wall, causing him a life in lonelyness north of the wall, all alone, far from anyone else. The son of him and Dany then proceeds to take the throne, after they kicked Cersei off. Or better yet: Their son and Cerseis daughter marry and thats how they "defy" her.
I know nothing though and this is pure speculation and wild fan theory.

I'm also super dissapointed with the series, I feel like I'm watching a fan fiction rather than the official series, Jon and Danny relationship felt super forced and all the caracters became shallow. It is pretty much fan service at this point..

What bothers me the most, is the relationship of Jon's parents, and how everyone in the fandom thinks it is ~beautiful~
Rhaegar was married and had two children, but he decided to abandon his family and humiliate his wife to hook up with Lyanna.
Idk why this makes me so angry, but the fact that so many people thinks that this story is an exemple of true love really grind my gears.
Both characters are assholes and only thought about their own happines rather than the common good.

>tfw I type out a huge vent but then delete it partly bc it's out of my system but also partly bc I'm paranoid that the bitches I mention may browse here and know who I am bc the vent is so specific

Oh well, I can least vent about my soul-sucking job that made me cry tonight, right?
I work at a call center. Side story is that despite making me miserable, it has a lot of perks, benefits, and is also a globally recognized brand.
I'm a peon who makes a shit wage but everyone thinks I have this exciting, professional job just bc of the brand I work for and the romanticizations of what I (don't) actually do. I'm too insecure to leave it out of fear that I won't find something better.
On top of that, there's a lot of unprofessionalism/incompetence/lack of training among my coworkers–namely from 'resolution' agents that act as my 'supervisors' on the phone when I need help with something.

Tonight I got stuck in a 2 hour call that went an hour over my shift end time. All because I was getting inconsistent, condescending 'help' from these 'resolution' twats. Low key I was working on something super complicated, and they didn't want to deal with it personally bc they're lazy shits. I sound young and nice over the phone, so many tend to brush me aside and think they can treat me as if I'm a naive dumbass–whatever it takes to get me off their line.
Anyway, what should have been a 30 minute call turned into 2 hours just because I had to keep making calls back and forth to verify/change certain information–partially the fault of the indecisive customer and her weird requests–but mostly because the resolution agents gave me wrong info.

I further got stuck with a financial agent who thought they had the fucking authority to act like a supervising agent when their only job was to calculate a number and store the information in the record I was working in. I may report that to my actual supervisor because holy shit that made me pissed. Considering the agent was fucking wrong anyway and wasted my time with her own little proofread of the work that already passed by THREE FUCKING RESOLUTION AGENTS.

And did I mention: That the time I'm on hold with the customer while these bumbling pricks don't listen to me, fuck with irrelevant shit, and go off on tangents actually negatively impacts MY agent stats?

I had another dipshit resolution agent earlier in my shift who could barely be assed to submit a detailed receipt request for a customer. Just because that would have required him to make three pseudo records and queue it to a desk that does the work for him, oh no!
He tried to play fucking dumb when I came on the line and said that his position doesn't do detailed receipts (they fucking do). He said, "Well good luck with that" when I said the customer needed a more detailed receipt than what could be provided on the website.
He eventually did it, but it pisses me off that he was a lying fucknut about it and tried to get me to hang up by stalling my time for 15 minutes when it only should have taken him 5. Son of a bitch.

I can only work two days a week at my job because of college and I'm already feeling the financial crush. At first I thought it'd be a good thing to help wean me out of working there but now I need to find a place that can accommodate my weird schedule.

Maybe I'm just being paranoid today. Maybe she gossiped because I didn't wear make-up and haven't washed my hair in four days lol.

I'm just about done here. I've been wanting to kill myself for years but I've always been too scared and proactive enough to choose a method out of fear that it wouldn't "work." I don't have access to firearms or anything like that (but even if I did I would be scared that I would aim wrong and just end up alive with permanent damage.) I'll never contribute anything the world and there's just no point to me being here. I really wish I was a different person with a different brain.

I still don't know what method I'm going to use but I feel like I'm finally angry/sad/tired enough to just go through with it regardless of pain and fear. I don't want to set a specific date or anything but I'd like to live through one more fall season because I've always found it very comforting and I only have good memories of that time of year.

It's funny because when I was 18 I tried to kill myself with hydrocodone. I don't remember how many I took but I just ended up waking up the next day vomiting nothing and not being able to pee for two days, but I just told my parents I was sick and they never found it. Didn't have to go to the hospital or anything. It was very stupid of me BUT I think about it all the time because in the five years since that happened, nothing has changed. Nothing happened in these five years that I would have 'missed out on' if I had died at 18. So it's really a shame that it didn't work back then but I was stupid and had no idea what I was doing. That makes me saddest of all.

I know how you feel too anon.
I had an attempt when I was 20 which landed me in the hospital and then the psych ward. I had been depressed for years before this, self harming and had an ED.

Ended up being diagnosed with Borderline Personality disorder like 3 years later on my next admission to the psych ward (also due to suicidal thoughts etc.) Left my job with my shitty abusive boss and started intensive therapy (MBT once a week for like a year) and eventually started getting my shit together.

I'm now starting medical school in a couple of weeks which is something I thought I would never achieve after years and years of being miserable.

I'm now 25, I just wanted to say things can change, I never thought I would achieve any of my goals and I'm finally starting to. If you haven't been inpatient or had therapy it is worth a try, it changed my life.

I don't know much about you but your post struck a nerve with me because it's very similar to how I felt a few years ago and you're style of writing is somewhat similar to my own so I just wanted to say that I never thought things would change and they have, and they could for you too, its no longer painful to live all the time.

I hope this doesn't piss you off, I'm not sure I would have been receptive to a comment like mine when I felt them same as you.

This past week I was in one of the areas that flooded. I texted my friend just saying that I like it better when it's cloudy (since the sun is back up) and suddenly my whole friend group is against me and calling me ignorant because "I'm only saying that since my house didn't flood". I even apologized and made up some excuses and they said "Well, (friend) is probably happy to see the sun since her house flooded! I think her problems are bigger than your eye/skin problems!" Like.. why would you even bring her up?
It's funny because the initial girl I sent this to wouldn't have any friends if I dropped her.

Weather preference has literally nothing to do with who was and wasn't affected by the hurricane, it sounds like they were just looking for something to be offended by.
Are any of them volunteering to help flood victims? Made any donations? Attended any fundraisers? Housing people/pets who were displaced? No?

I've been on the fence of breaking up with my bf for months now. Too much drama happens and then I feel bad for him and stick around, but I'm really getting tired of everything. I don't want to go into too much detail but I basically feel like some housemaid that he occasionally wants to fuck. We've been together for about 9 years so this is pretty tough to deal with but I can't take it anymore.

This past week I've been mentally cataloging everything in our place that's mine. Things I brought with me when we moved in together, things I bought that only I use, or things that were gifted by my parents (who hate him btw). It's going to suck a lot because any furniture I had when we moved in is basically gone now as we bought new furniture together.

Okay, armchair psychologists, and real psychologists (if you're here). I have one for you. I wasn't really sure where to post this (I would post it in relationships in /g/ but it's not a relationship but I guess I'm also venting)

My friend seems to not like anything that takes his "focus" away from his goal. I think I finally figured out that he pushed me away after we had sex because it distracted him way too much, because he was going really hard on the sexting afterwards. It seems like he hates any distractions and avoids them. He even said he's trying not to look at any porn because "it's horrible for you!" I think maybe just because it wastes his time away. He stopped smoking weed. He seems to HATE when his schedule gets messed up somehow. It seems unhealthy to me almost something related to mental illness? People don't just push things away because of ANY little distraction to accomplish a goal in life, do they? He said what happened with me was "a moment of weakness". He said he doesn't like hanging out with friends because he would rather be working on his stuff but he feels bad about being a bad friend.
I just look at where other people have gotten in their lives and it's not like they had to just throw everything away to get there. He's still my friend, but I'm super curious about what this is all about. I think pushing away things that make you feel good is very weird.

I haven't had the guts to move out of my parents home yet and I can't stand it anymore but if I leave I feel like things will only get worse if I leave. They've been fighting this whole weekend I usually don't take their fights seriously but tonight it escalated. My dad broke my moms phone and her work phone as well. I love my mom so much but I feel like I can't help her I keep telling her to leave him and she and I can get a small apartment together but she stays with him. This is their biggest fight and I don't know how they're going to come back from it. My dad has been somewhat violent in the past mostly towards me ( broke my bedroom door once) but I hate that it's towards my mom because she really doesn't deserve it. This has gone on since I was a teen and is still happening and it bothers me more now than ever. I feel like a helpless child all over again because I didn't defend my mom enough and just ignored it, i probably could've stopped some of it from happening but it's always been my main state to just lock myself in a room when they're fighting and wait for it to end. I feel like things will only get worse and he might become more violent towards her and I fear what could happen. I think she's genuinely in danger and I can't stand that. I don't hate my dad but he's not a great person all around. I just want to move far away but I also don't want to leave them since who knows what could happen. I mostly just don't want to abandon my mom. I really don't know what to do I'm such a failure, I can't help anyone.

Why don't we let suicidal people kill themselves? As long as they don't have any dependents or are minors, I don't see why letting them die is unacceptable. I guess there's legal issues and administration to deal with if you wanna go there, but what if they dealt with it before leaving? It seems crueler to force someone to live when they don't want to.
Fuck, I'm just saying all this because I want to die but I'm terrified of surviving and coming back retarded and/or crippled. It's also near impossible to get firearms in this country. I managed to find someone selling a barbiturate on the dark web but it was damn pricey and I didn't have any expendable income at the time.
I don't know if things are going to get any better. I stopped taking my medication a couple of weeks ago and I can't say I regret it because I can finally feel things now. I mean I just feel extra shitty and cry all the time, but there's no way I'm going back to feeling nothing.
It seems like I'll always feel this way even if I do 'do things'. I'm going back to uni next year to see if I can finish up and graduate, but I keep reading about how bad things are, and it's not even like I'm purposely looking for shit like that. It seems in endless supply nowadays. I used to think that as long as I could distract myself from being sad and work things through little by little I could get through, but lately all I can think of is dying, how to die, and getting upset when I realise how difficult it actually is to kill yourself. I tried imagining 'coping' and being independent, but it's not like I want a different or better life. I literally don't want to exist. Video games used to be my crutch but I'm losing interest because I feel so pathetic for getting a modicum of happiness from a fictional world.

I just.. what's the point? Even if I do graduate it'll be with a shitty degree that has zero practical value and as a bonus I'll be steeped in debt. I don't have dreams or anything I enjoy anymore, the future looks extremely bleak, I have no friends (lmao), and people are just… I don't know how I feel seeing all the scum crawl out of the floorboards in the wake of the US election and voicing their ''''''opinions''''''. Even as I type this I keep thinking, "bitch?? what the fuck is wrong with you??? stop being so fucking lazy THERE ARE PEOPLE ACTUALLY SUFFERING JFC," and "i don't care!! lmao end the suffering" in the same breath/thought/whatever. I know I could fight, but I don't want to if it doesn't change how I'll feel at the end of the day.

Because we care for them? Or personally, even if I don't know the person, everytime I read vent posts of someone suicidal my first instinct is to write back "Don't do it". I feel like one's life can always change, so committing suicide while young is a waste.
This is also kinda hypocritical of me because I'm suicidal myself currently, but my problem is my abusive mother that makes my life a living hell so I just need to run away from home. And even though my issue seems easier to solve, as it "simply" involves getting away from a place to instantly get better, it's so hard and I've decided that if in one year I still won't have moved out I'll end myself.

I finally got the courage to call the cops on my brother after 20 years of being afraid to. He started throwing actual shit in my room and rubbed it on my doorknob and was going off in this psychotic rant about how I put it on his bed and told him I hoped he liked it. I wanted to get an order of protection against him because on top of emotional abuse, he hits my dog when I'm not home or breaks shit. He's even physically assaulted my dad before but my parents are too afraid of him to kick him out. I've dealt with it for so long that I couldn't deal with it anymore.

Anyway, cops come and are basically like "move out". I tell them I'm just a few months away from graduating and will but they said "obviously you aren't trying hard enough". They kept cutting me off when I tried to explain the situation to them. They just wanted to leave.
I shut down after that and just said ok so they would leave.
The 911 operator was way more nice about everything and told me I should go ahead with the order but the cops were such assholes. Now I don't know how long I'll last in this house. Even though I've worked so hard to get back into school and am so close to graduating, I feel like dying.

>Pain is temporary suicide is forever

Sorry if this comes across as me just sperging, but I really hate that cliché quote that EVERYONE says about suicide. Often times people are suffering for YEARS before they finally do it. Often times they don't have good relationships or resources to get out of the pain either. It is not temporary, and most people who are so depressed that they have suicidal thoughts have to fight it their entire lives, since depression can permanently alter your brain or pop up many times until the end of your life.

The thing about not killing yourself because loved ones will be hurt by it… is pretty bullshit. Where were these supposed loved ones when you have been hurting for the last ten, twenty, thirty years? Where were these supposed friends or family members when you tried to reach out and they blew you off? Where the fuck where they when it came to just casually interacting with you here and there, instead of only contacting you when they wanted to gain something?

Sure, it's no one's job to change you to not feel suicidal, you have to make those changes yourself, but it is so fucking hard to do that. There are a few special exceptions where someone is open about being suicidal for a long period of time and their loved ones ACTUALLY try their best to be supportive, but that is incredibly rare. Most people are too fucking self absorbed to notice or even care if they do know.

Anon, you only get one shot at this life. It will always be hard but if you can find little reasons to live, that alone is worth it. It is hard to stop feeling as you do when you realize how the world really is. Honestly, for no one other than yourself, you do deserve to take a good look at if you just want to stop existing or if you simply hate what your life is. That can ALWAYS change. It takes a lot of hard work, but we as humans have a great ability to adapt as long as we keep an open mind. Your thought process feels like a comfy crutch that makes sense of how bullshit this world really is, which isn't the best way to cope. Find those few reasons to live, even if it's just one. Whatever actually makes you feel something. And hold on to it. Make an educated decision and think things through. We are all nothing in the end and life is very short, so please chase whatever makes you feel alive. That is one of the few ways to feel ok with existing.

Everybody says time heals things but its been a while since I broke up with my last boyfriend.

We met initially as friends and then after a couple nights of hanging out and talking until the middle of the night, he asked me out. We started with a perfect relationship until things started to fall apart little by little. I realized near the end that he was a master liar and probably a sociopath. He gaslighted me the entire time, and compared other women to me. Last straw was when he cheated on me with multiple women, two of which who had aspbergers. It made me feel like shit because when I found out he told me what positions they did in bed, how he choked her, and how he liked having sex with them more than he did with me. Found out later from other people that when he wasn't with me, he was going off ranting to people about how global warming was a fraud, trump was the best president, and how he was going to start a cult. It was crazy realising what kind of person I had been dating (I still don't know what kind of mental problems he has)

I'm definitely OVER him in the sense that I never want to be with him again, but I'm definitely not over the emotional damage he caused. I compare myself to other women a lot now, and my insecurity is through the roof. Been trying to workout and find hobbies to make up for it but some of the shit he said and did really hurt me for life.

Is your dad aware that his behaviour is wrong? Does he care? Can you convince him to seek out help for himself and your mother to learn how to deal with feelings appropriately? You could maybe write a heart felt letter to each of them about your concerns.

Does your mother understand that what he's doing is completely unacceptable and she shouldn't have to deal with it? Relationships are complicated but sometimes being in love or the amount of time spent together just isn't a good enough reason to hang on to a relationship. If she is made to feel under threat that is not acceptable and nobody deserves that. You don't agree to be in a situation like that when you enter a friendship so why should it be any different with her life partner?

Making the jump is scary but she'll realise just how easy it is to leave once she's done it.

Regardless it sounds like you were the one dumping right? It just sounds like he has issues moving on and you should ignore him, that he's just moping around rather than doing anything malignant.

I knew it was him because of the age he said his is, and what he wrote. The same exact words and the timing couldn't have been better.

Anyway, I don't care if he vents or anything. He threatened to kill himself and all and I seriously don't want that.

I think my mom might have found my gigantic fucking Bad Dragon dildo while i was away for the week, but i'm not sure.
I have my own appartment, but she asked if she could leave her dogs at my place for a few days while i was away. I'm always super careful about these things and clean up/hide stuff well (weed etc), but i can also be pretty scatterbrained so i MIGHT have left it in the shower (i leave it there sometimes for it to dry after i've washed it) but i can't remember.
It was in it's usual place when i got home, in my closet in a box where i keep my socks etc, but i don't recognise the plastic bag it's wrapped in and can't for the life of me remember if i put it back like that.
She's the kind of person who wouldn't mention stuff like this, and she hates embarrassing others.
I'm freaking out so much over this, it's fucking enormous, and black, and inhuman looking.

I wish there was a way to find out whether or not i forgot the dildo in the shower without having to ask her.

I was told exactly the same thing. His solution was to give my meds - again. When I tried to ask him for that kind of therapeutical help (even groupal one, I dind't mind), he told me that I had to be in a wait list for -maybe- more than half a year and that he wasn't sure I'd be admitted…It's nonsense.

it all depends on taste, while the ~traditionally sexy blonde~ girl can attract more open and forward types of people, petite QT pale girls with short dark hair attract the type people tend to keep the crush to themselves until the feel like they can move forward



I forgot what thread it was but someone said that an 8/10 girl with modest dress is less likely to get flirted with than a 7.8/10 girl in more adventurous/ daring dress, I guess it applies in a way that people feel like they are expected to flirt with traditionally beautiful women where as people are expected to respect more reserved seeming women, even if they are more attractive than said big boobied curvy blonde

It's not always about the looks either. From what >>204158 wrote we can assume her gf is having fun, probably enjoying herself, laughing, smiling, and the OP is feeling down, wanting to go home, insecure and sad. If you think it does not show, you're wrong. Even not very perceptive people subconsciously sense it and go for the positive person (or more outgoing-looking, more bubbly, etc).
Without false modesty, I'm good looking, but I'm also quiet, calm, reserved. I get approached, but very rarely, and sometimes people after getting to know me confess they thought I was unapproachable.
Maybe that's the case? How you present yourself?
Also Anon, it's nothing to be jealous of tbh, it's rather annoying. Unwanted attention very quickly gets tiring and it makes you feel like shit when you realize how very shallowly people are interested in you, as if you have nothing more to offer.

same, a lot of my friends are tall, long hair, big boobs, basically the typical attractive features, I never get flirted with either, and literally have had male friends come to me and talk about how hot so-and-so is, as it later turned out, when I did get flirted with, it was in a "I want to be in a relationship with you" type of way, vs what my friends get as a "I want to just fuck you" kind of way, I don't think it's fair either way though, my friends have trouble keeping relationships because of the type of guys they attract because of their look, I turn down people who want relationships with me, but I'd feel more pretty and desirable if I wasn't the "hey your friend is hot" friend, not to sound like an attention whore

Maybe you didn't want the attention, but its hard not to feel a tinge of jealousy when someone is getting fawned over and ur being overlooked. Theres nothing wrong with it either.
Is she more outgoing or bubbly than you? Sometimes things like that can attract the attention of others - rather than looks.

If you genuinely have no reason left to live and feel nothing then you might as well dedicate your flesh machine to something useful. Working in McDonalds isn't going to make you happy if you aren't even enjoying the videogames that you're buying with that work so instead go volunteer at a local soup kitchen if you're a pussy or if you truly don't care about your life anymore, go help at a refugee camp
Worst case scenario, something goes wrong and you die and everyone says you died helping people instead of people knowing it was a selfish suicide. Best case scenario, you work like a dog but find a purpose, or at least find that you want to go home and play some videogames alone in a warm room again.

Yeah, I feel that her being an awful therapist, other to her being simply dumb and probably sheltered, could be to address to the general uneducatedness about psychology in my country, and the fact that she looked like she was in her 60s. Young people now have a better education, young psychologists and therapists, although not as experienced as the older ones, have a bigger chance of being good imho. I have an old psychology book from the sixties and it says stuff like "people that masturbate in their adulthood have mental issues", lmao. If a concept like that has actually been said by a famous psychologist, written on a book and studied by hundreds if not thousands of people, it would easily explain why a therapist would look down on a young girl opening up about her problems and dismiss it as "a rebellious teenager". Basically what happened:
>"My mother beats me up, spits on me and only ever calls me names like worthless, useless, piece of shit, whore and says that everyone is better than me, making me depressed and crushing my self esteem"
>"Damn Anon you really hate her don't you, I think you're exaggerating because rebellious phase blah blah, a parent would never hurt their kids"
And then proceeded to tell my mother that I was holding a childish grudge on her.
This shitshow scared me away from visiting another therapist ever again. I know that there are good ones, and a lot of them, I really do. Just… I'll rely on my resilience as long as I can do. I'm doing a good job so far, let's see what happens.

Finally became financially stable, want to start a family now. I have worked my entire life to finally make enough money to do this, I've put off (or been denied) relationships until now, I'm a virgin while most women have already fucked tons of guys, but I can compromise on that.

My main problem? I don't want to get divorce raped. Women can cheat in a marriage and face no legal punishment, they can divorce for any reason because of no-fault divorce laws.

In the divorce she would likely get custody of my children, get my house that I paid for, and get child-support/alimony payments. Then use this money to fuck other guys.

I'm being completely serious, this would make me angry enough to literally kill her, my entire life would be ruined, I would literally take a gun and kill her.

Modern American women are highly likely to cheat or divorce, there's a better chance of it happening than not. Prenups do not work (Judge can nullify a prenup if they want), and a prenup cannot decide who gets custody of (hypothetical) children anyway.

The only solution I can think of is that I will not marry or have children with any woman unless she fully believes that I will literally kill her if she tries to screw me in a divorce.

I will tell her, I'm ok with her divorcing and taking nothing, but if she tries to get custody of my children, the house, or my money, I will literally kill her.

I will not marry her unless she fully believes this, and is okay with it. I have thought a long time about this, and I can't think of any other possible solution. What else could I do?

I'm tired of people around me being unhealthy as fuck and just reeling me into their pity parties around it. Especially when I try offering advice and they just discredit it even though I know what I'm talking about. I feel like this is happening more frequently once I started whipping myself in shape through diet and exercise.

A few of my friends are overweight and it's the same thing from each of them:
>oh I'm so fat, what do I do about this?
>oh anon you're so skinny and I could never be as fit as you!
>I need to lose weight but it's hard! I'm so busy/medically unable to/trying but it takes time!

And these same people proceed to shove their faces with sugary shit like ice cream and cakes all while guzzling down sodas and juices with it. And when I give gentle advice on what they can do, something along the lines of "I found that cutting soda/white carbs really helped me get on track to getting in shape!" they just get super defensive, and then finish with some half-baked promise like "once I get back from vacation/this month is over, THEN I'll get into shape!" ffs one of them requested that I find them weight loss pills because they have too much "water weight" and need to lose it in a matter of a week. It's not fucking water weight–it's fucking fat from eating two goddamn pints of gelato a day.

I mean it's not to say that I don't indulge from time to time, but I somehow keep myself from shoving my face with sweets on a daily basis. Dieting and exercise isn't easy for everyone, but goddamnit everyone can learn fucking self-control and moderation if they just put in the effort. I'm just tired of them getting snippy towards me and giving me attitude as if I don't know how oh-so-busy their days are. If I can find time to go and do some kind of physical activity for an hour and a half a day between work and courses, then so can they.

I work at a call center and I fucking hate entitled asshole customers.
I was forced to do overtime again bc of all the bad weather, and out of the 12 hours I worked it just took one asshole towards the end of my shift to ruin my mood.
He wanted to know why he wasn't being refunded a service fee $70 on a fare he'd bought (and gotten a refund for), and I had to tell him booking fees were non-refundable as the 'service' was technically rendered even if the fare wasn't. First of all, he had no information for me despite being on hold and doing nothing with his precious time. Then, he purposefully threw me off because he accused us of having charged him $100 before I could even get ahold of the financial record. I finally found the info no thanks to him. After I corrected him and clarified the charge (I was told I was 'interrupting' him for offering to explain something during his long-winded tirade), he actually had the audacity to slam it in my face that he was a "business owner" (aka the 'CEO' of some no-name advertising .com website in PA), and that he "didn't have the time" to fill out the customer relations complaint form on our website. And that I should have had to "go over my head" and gotten a supervisor to speak to him because how dare we not be able to refund him the fee over the phone. And how dare I not read his mind that he wanted a supervisor. And shudder to think we lose his highness as a customer!

I don't know what piece of shit business owner throws a fit over $70 and doesn't have a secretary to do this work for him, but he really pissed me off. And I didn't say much except "I understand how you feel," because if I make these types of arrogant assholes feel (rightfully) shut down, they just stay on the line longer to try to argue with me more. Despite them knowing nothing will come of it.

What bugs me is how cold it is.

I can at least understand doing something emotionally charged and in the moment, like saying something shitty during an argument or even cheating on someone while at a party surrounded by bad influences. Not condoning and it's entirely on you to make amends, but at least I can understand how it happened.

But an affair is a measured thing, an act you keep up for a significant period. They know it is wrong, that their partner deserves to know, but they do it anyways even though they had a moment to think it over.

But than you go on and basically say the majority of women are money-hungry sluts etc.
Now, it's 2017. Girls are also studying hard and they earn money; so women are no longer financially dependant on men. Most women take care more about their looks than the average male, plus physically we don't need sex, we don't jerk of on a daily basis like guys do.

Judging from your post it seems that you think that most females are below your standard, so answer me this: what do you have to offer to women?

Vent? I don't like that term. It makes it sound like it's a necessity, that if I don't say something I'll overheat and die. That's not really the case so we'll call it something else, an explanation. I'm not sure where to begin, there's no particular troubling event, just the malaise of life in contemporary society. Forgive me if I'm vague in some areas, if I am it's because explaining the whole situation would take too long and focus on the unimportant aspects. Let's start simple.

I'm a 24 year old [person] who after a sequence of events, has ended up in a particularly isolating place. I say particularly isolating, because everywhere that I've been has imposed on me an isolating effect, this one is just stronger. It's something that I've experienced since I was around… 12? Who knows why that is. It could be because I'm very introverted, or because my intelligence (tested at 19 with a FSIQ of 143), my bundle of idiosyncrasies, a combination? None of the above? Why doesn't really matter. Just know that the feelings of isolation tend to grow as I get older, and where I am now is possibly one of the worst places I could be. It makes our solution at the end of this post here impossible to accomplish (in meatspace).

So, like most people experiencing isolation in real life, we turn to cyberspace. Cyberspace works well for a while, and we live a digital life far more satisfying than our real one. But things in cyberspace can't go well forever. Unavoidable entropic processes take their effect, and the isolating agents of the real world encroach on cyberspace. Sanctuaries turn into Hell, and we exile (or are exiled) ourselves to the nearest outpost. But these outposts are small, and lack much activity, they do not completely fulfill their purpose. Nothing can escape entropy, and they are doomed to succumb to the same fate. At some point in the near future, we become just as isolated in cyberspace as we are in the real world.

So my problem? Nigh complete social atomization as the world degenerates around me. How do I solve a problem like that? My idea is pretty simple, find another atomized person. Stay with them forever. The entropic effects of social decay do not effect individuals, so long as [they] exist, we are content. This is easier said than done, and my chance of succeeding is near zero.

Actually after thinking about it for a bit longer. Here's a better answer.

To explain things in greater detail would have taken too long, and wouldn't have been interesting to many people. I chose instead to be vague and not talk about things that happened specifically only passing over them. I focused on the result of the things, how it makes me feel. Had I told the same essential story explaining events, maybe people could be more sympathetic. It also doesn't help that the problem is anti-sympathetic in nature. I tried to use descriptive words that are rarely used in casual conversation (when's the last time you used entropic in casual conversation?) so the post would be more concise. Maybe that accounts for pretension? Maybe stating the fact that I'm intelligent accounts for that too? People generally speaking don't like to hear that sort of thing, even if it's true (or relevant).

So, not the best way to play to the crowd, but I'm not sure that's what I was going for anyway. Maybe I was agitating the crowd instead? Whatever. I was honest.

I've been having a problem for the past seven years that I'm afraid of going to a doctor for because I am terrified of being told I'm faking or I'm just lazy.

Before you call me a lazy fat munchie, let me explain: I do yoga 4 times a week, morning and night. I do a cardio routine three times a week. I force myself to drink 3 liters of water every day. Ive cut down on my sugar and carb intake. I have a part time job and I go to college part time, which I've been doing for two years. My bmi is 20 (which I understand a lot of you consider is fat.) I have followed all the advice I could possibly find online that is supposed to allievate tiredness.

But I'm fucking tired. All the time. Every day and night. I was exhausted to the point of sleeping for 13 hours daily before I started exercising and tracking my food and water. Now, I'm still at the same level of exhausted, and I just hurt more.

I fall asleep on the bus. I fall asleep while eating. I fall asleep standing up. Driving. Sitting down. In class. There has not been a minute of my day in the past seven years where I haven't felt exhausted.

I can't handle this anymore. I can't stand being exhausted every moment of every day, I can't stand needing to sleep 12 hours just to feel normal. But I don't want to see a doctor because I'm afraid they will say there is nothing wrong with me. I'm afraid they will tell me I'm just lazy and looking for attention.

I hate living like this but I'm afraid that if I get help they will just tell me there's nothing wrong with me. And this awful, awful tiredness, the sleepiness that is wrecking me is just what I have to live with. Reading the munchie thread on /snow/ just makes me scared to get help.

Women's place in society should be as wives/mothers, AND I disagree with the feminist divorce courts.

>Now, it's 2017. Girls are also studying hard and they earn money; so women are no longer financially dependant on men.

There is no shortage of women who are unemployed, or employed in shitty minimum wage work, and want to be housewives.

Women go to college for meme degrees that don't pay shit.

>They don't need your money,


Reality says otherwise, because in the adult world, women judge a man's value almost entirely based on how much money he makes.

Women are still whores that require money from male partners no matter how much money they make themselves. They don't want unemployed househusbands like men want unemployed housewives. A guy with no money, and no future plans to make money, is a deal breaker to over 99% of women.

How many adult women would date an adult male NEET?

Yes this is unfortunate, and it's largely the fault of feminism, women almost doubled the workforce and that lowers wages, they also voted to flood western countries with immigrants, that also lowers wages.

Women should only be given alimony if the man cheats, or he initiates the divorce without justifiable reason.

Also there is no such thing as marital rape, it doesn't exist, but if a man is forced to "rape" his wife every time he wants sex, that is justifiable cause for divorce.

If a woman causes the divorce, or initiates it herself without justifiable reason, she gets absolutely nothing. Simple as that.

>they would need it until they find another man since they would be jobless and have children to provide for.

>they would need

You know what happens to men when they can't get a job, and have no family support? They become homeless.

She leaves the marriage with something more than valuable enough to prevent her from being homeless: her pussy.

>It won't happen, but what would be the punishment?

> they also voted to flood western countries with immigrants, that also lowers wages.


go back to /pol/ ya insecure manlet, it's not like women and men made a split decision to vote to bring in immigrants, plenty of women were against it, infact most of the women I know are against it themselves, and if anything I knew more men who were for it than I knew women for it

>What about men who do make enough money to afford a house, wife, and kids on his income alone?


They exist you know, but they're all terrified of getting married or having kids because women can ruin their lives in a divorce.

have you even met men like so? the one I have met often encourage their women to get jobs, go to school, and do what they want with their life, they're not "terrified of getting married or having kids" and if you knew anything about said men, then you'd know the vast majority of them ARE married, and what's your annual income mr~everyone should become a housewife~

>Reality says otherwise, because in the adult world, women judge a man's value almost entirely based on how much money he makes.



bitch where? a girl gets called a gold digger the second she asks for lunch money, anytime a woman wants a man to pay for anything she gets shamed, I've knew more women who feel bad about men buying them things than I've met gold diggers, it's like these women only exist on tv, not in real life

> A guy with no money, and no future plans to make money, is a deal breaker to over 99% of women.

They can get laid (e.g. going to night clubs and having one-night stands with disgusting sluts), but they can't enter a long-term relationship, and any gf/wife he had before being unemployed is probably going to leave him soon.

>why are all these guys that live in crack houses fucking girls?

The rules work a bit different for drug addicts. Ironically, a relationship between two unemployed drug addicts is the only example you could give of a straight relationship (outside of schools) where the girl isn't literally a whore.

>why are all the minimum wage mcdonalds college students getting their dicks wet every night?

Because they're college students, and they have income right now on top of that. They already have money, and more importantly, because they're in college women see them as a future source of money.

There is 6ft+, 8/10+, muscular NEETs with 130+ IQs and great personalities living in their mom's basement, but no girl would ever enter a relationship with them because they have no money to offer. Why can't they get a girlfriend?

The only reason girls won't let guys pay for a date is because she wants to pretend that she's not a whore. Guess what, you're still a whore because if he _couldn't_ pay for the date, then you wouldn't be dating him, so you're still a whore.

you're ridiculous. truly. you've never heard of a woman dating a broke guy and/or having more disposable income than her bf? your sheltered ways are showing. if every woman was a gold digger i'd try to accept it but it's just not true, no matter how you spin it. if you refuse to believe me maybe you're projecting your misogyny onto others? ofc many women have gold digging ways but to convince yourself that it's all the billions of them is very fucking delusional

Let me tell you something; i'm from Germany, which is definatly a rather wealthy country and my mom's coworker at school would love to have a child of her own. Mind you, both she and her boyfriend have jobs that are by no means paying badly, but still, in order to raise the kid she would need to reduce hours (on the countryside there is no option like putting it in daycare) but when they would no longer have enough to live. So they both still have to save up for a few years in order to even live a life remotely close to what you desire.
The whole world makes fun of our low birth numbers, we are dying out blah blah, but that's the sad reality; even you're average people can no longer afford children, so nowaday both partners simply have to work, even in first world countries

I thought you have decent income/saved up, so why are you still a virgin?

Yeah, you could easily find a gold digging girlfriend, not any/every girl would date you, much less the ones that hate you and aren't gold diggers. Your logic is clouded because you think all women are the same, but you sound as smart and rational as someone saying "i could easily pay a whore to have sex with me, therefore all women are whores!"

Oh hey would you look at that, the American college system finding yet another way to fuck students over!
I NEED a letter of recommendation for my employer to accept me, but because my old job fell in line exactly with the class hours at my campus, I had to take online classes only. I've only gone to campus a few times to get things done for admission reasons, never for classes.
I spent 30 minutes calling different advisers to get a letter of recommendation and none of them will give me one unless they know me personally.
I'm fucked. Even the blanket "X student is enrolled in our society and has a GPA of 3.6, etc" that they offer on their website is being refused.

They should change "online classes are a convenient way to complete your degree" to "don't ask for anything if you're an online student, we don't care."

I recently moved to a bumfuck nowhere village to attend college, my bike got stolen a few days ago and it's sent me into some sort of mental breakdown. I keep bursting into tears and just the thought of having to wait every day for a bus to the train station that only passes once an hour makes me have a panic attack. I can't even go to the grocery store anymore, I'm stuck in the middle of the woods. I don't know if it's the stress of a new place or college that's making me lose my mind like this and the bike just triggered it. Either way, I hate feeling like this, I can't even sleep most days because I just start overthinking and crying again. I don't know what's wrong with me.

I'm taking care of my moms dogs during the day while she's at work atm (only for like 2 weeks), and while walking/feeding/playing with them isn't in any way inconvenient or tiresome, their constant need for attention is. It has made me realize that i'll never want to actually take care of a dog of my own.
Their psychological dependence on me feels unnatural and creepy, as if they can never be petted enough, talked to enough or played with enough. I can see what the last hundred years of dog breeding has done to them, and it doesn't feel right.

Atm the little one is restlessly walking around my appartment, sometimes silently whimpering for attention but shuns away when i try to give her some. (They are not sick and are well taken care of by my mother) The big one thinks we're going for a walk or getting food every single time i rise up from a chair, or pick something up, or make a sound.
They get walked/played with plently, but it's clear dogs in general aren't supposed to stay indoors most of the day.

I feel like i can never relax around them, i'm always tense and feel slightly irritated. As soon as my mom come and gets them in the evening my whole body instantly relaxes.

I used to want a dog when i grew up, but i'm starting to realize what dog "haters" mean when they say how annoying and dependent dogs are. My friend describes most dogs as being breeded to the point of brain damage, and i think he's right.
I could never hate dogs tho, i think they're wonderful in moderation, i just don't want to live with them.

My very close friend got a boyfriend around last year and it was a critical hit to our friendship. It's LDR so every holiday, every free time she spends at his place or he at hers. Me and her also live far away from each other, so before the bf came to the scene, we would use holidays to spend time together. Now it's impossible, we can't hang out just the two of us, it either with him or not at all. She can't shut up about him, it's nearly impossible to talk about something without her mentioning her bf.

I feel happy for her, because it's all been very good for her mental health, but I'm also sad, because she goes out of contact for weeks/months when they're together, we barely talk, and I don't like some life decisions she's making… Clearly to be closer to him etc, but she risks a lot and I've seen her get cucked by guys too much. I have a bad feeling about it… I just don't see the same involvement, engagement from his side, and the way they interact is weird. He's overly protective and bossy, "daddy" type, maybe that's their thing, I don't want to know.

He became her whole life and I don't think it's healthy (and safe).
I'm jealous of the time they spend together, sad about our very special friendship slowly dying, worried about her future…

I know what you mean, almost all my female friends did that, basically we all planned on moving in together, I find apartments and everything, then one friend wants to move in with her boyfriend, changed her entire career goal for him, and so on, that wasn't as bad as the other case though, this one he got her addicted to meth, treats her like shit and does nothing but fuck her and drop off his kid which he knocked up some girl while they were in high school, none of her friends like him and god knows why she is with him, I'd make her leave him if I could because currently she lives in a trailer with her friend who also hates her boyfriend, I offered her to come stay with me but she declined, and I offered her to go on a trip with me but she declined because her boyfriend doesn't like it when she is away


the third one, she is an adult but her mom never lets her leave, she once went to a different state but when I ask her if she wants to go to the nearest city which is 30 minutes away she declines because her parents don't allow that?

I mean, only an idiot would give you shit over not being thrilled about having an energetic dog in a small apartment. But different dogs have different needs, I'd suggest something more like a corgi for someone in a city apartment.

I loved my Aussie Shepard, but one of the main reasons she worked so well was because she was in a family of 4 to give lots of attention and had lots of room to run around. If she was cooped up and had nothing to do with her energy, she'd have probably gotten into a lot of trouble. Meanwhile my mothers pomeranian-poodle mix is fairly independent and would probably work well for someone in your position.

>My friend describes most dogs as being breeded to the point of brain damage, and i think he's right.

Dogs are basically wolves that never went through puberty. Huskies are some of the dogs closest to their ancestors and even they can have separation anxiety pretty quickly. The fact is they're pack animals, if anything I would argue an independent dog is the one who had their mentality changed the most.

about 8 months ago my biological father reached out to me on Facebook and we talked a bit. but he was so weird it made me uncomfortable, now i know where i get my autism from kek.

i also learned i had 2 half brothers that he had with another woman around the same time he was with my mother. i am the "middle child" so to speak. he also completely abandoned my two brothers.

i was excited and nervous to finally get to know this strange figure that all of my relatives always told me i was so similar to.

but i soon learned that he had a child bride the same age as myself, and they were pregnant together. after all of his self admitted mistakes he made the same mistake again 20 years later.

i unfriended him and blocked him because of this, but for the last few months i've regretted it. my morbid curiosity is overwhelming. i want to speak with him and know about him but i don't agree with his morality whatsoever. i think he's a terrible person but i'm so intrigued and torn.

I said I'd call the vet and make the appointment for them but I've been shouted at to stop interfering.

Sometimes people can have things end and no one was really the bad guy. That's a fact of life romance films tend to dance around. That's not to say things can't be resolved either, but that's only a fair statement when you haven't looked into every option.

For instance, it depends on what you define by "experience new things". For some that involves casual sex for some reason, and would make things an obvious dead end.

Anyone ever been in a relationship with a schizoid person?

I just read about the symptoms and I strongly suspect my ex has it. It just matches up so perfectly - it was always so confusing to deal with him because of how difficult he was to read. Often he'd be completely stone-faced and not show any emotion, even when I was being upbeat and cracking jokes (like, sometimes he would just stare silently at me when I tried to lighten things up… it was sort of uncomfortable). So naturally I assumed he was mad or worried about something. But when I asked what was wrong, he would act confused and not know what I was talking about. It was confusing because sometimes he'd be really affectionate and warm, and then just completely "dead" days after. He would say, yes, he really DOES want to be with me, but then make no effort to be closer.

He used to say that he had trouble getting close to people and self-disclosing, but I always thought this meant that he was just really shy and insecure. But now I think he was just emotionally detached, lacked some self-awareness, and other people didn't know how to interact with him so they didn't bother.

It fucked with me because I kept thinking he was just pretending to like me, or that he was using me, when really he was just socially anhedonic.

His exes look nothing like me, his friends make fun of him for being with someone like me, he takes ages to cum when we have sex (but he cums easily from masturbating when alone), the girls he points towards which he finds attractive are the opposite of me, and whenever he compliments me it sounds very forced.
I'm short, have small boobs, I'm fairly slim (but not that much muscle definition), white and have blonde hair.

Especially when he's done nothing shitty, his crime is cumming too slow.

If anything I'd suggest they try something new in bed. Like so what if he gets off faster when he masturbates? That's true for most guys because you're only working around your needs rather than trying to consider your partner too.

No one is saying that.

What I am personally saying is that being paranoid about his ex's is one of the most classic insecurities. Of which I'm not unsympathetic, but I'm suggesting the two of them get past it together rather than breaking up every time she's feeling down. Like look at her evidence. He comes quicker when masturbating than during sex, something most guys do. His ex's look different than her, yet he's with her. He's never actually disparaged her or tried to hurt her self esteem, instead only giving compliments by her own admission.

It's rather silly for your first action be to break up considering all of this information.

I've got a small hymen opening and it gives me severe depression when things don't go my way. I've cried my eyes out from fear of the surgery, feeling like broken shit, or when I couldn't get tampons or a dildo in. It's also really painful sometimes and can leave me a little sore after pushing on it too much. On one hand I feel shitty for making my fiance wait and on the other I feel shitty for myself because I want to have sex. Some old conversations we had are haunting me mildly but not to the point of fucking me too hard up the ass. I'm hot and good in bed (to him at least, I'm usually p confident in myself but can shit on my looks sometimes) but it's a major insecurity for me. I booked a phone consultation with my doctor about the surgery and am scared my insurance won't cover it, but I swear to god it's medically necessary for my mental health…

I also worry I sound stupid or annoying to my fiance sometimes after I half-sleepily tried to explain an idea I had but really needed more background to do. I'm kind of going off the rails now because feeling dumb makes me more determined to feel smart, I guess that's good. But I also don't think I've got the time/focus to study it because I'm already working on learning too much shit. Still worry myself stupidly yet mildly because he goes on introvert expeditions where he gets sucked up into his hobbies trying to solve stuff or worry that I don't care he is despite like…being tired and in need of quiet time myself and therefore having a better understanding now that I'm probably working almost as many if not more hours a week as he is. So I understand but I guess that whatever dumb shit normies push about relationships that isn't always true and especially not for long term gets to my head. brain wtf

I'm taking a night class and have a long morning class the day after and I think I'm getting a cold. My homework schedule is a bit fucked up so I end up spacing out and reading Facebook or whatever and cramming a little on other days. I don't know if I'm actually working myself too hard and the stress is compromising my immune system because I don't feel like I'm working that hard or like it's overwhelming except in the night or after my morning class when I'm starting to just not get things because I'm exhausted.

idk sorry for the dump I've got a lot to vent about but I'm okay, I keep going and have a pretty happy attitude most of the time because I'm learning things I love, have people I love, etc. Sometimes you just wanna let it out to see if people relate or have ideas bc the vagina thing in particular has been hard to connect with people about.

Ehm I'm extremely submissive and act as his sex slave, I only care about his needs and I obey his every wish. I've asked whether he wants to try something new, but he said he likes the way we usually do it.
Okay is it normal for him then to take 90 minutes to cum with me around, but alone just 2 minutes? In our entire relationship he's only cum twice by me without him having to finish it himself. I've asked whether I feel tight enough, and he said definitely, sometimes too tight. I've asked whether my blowjob skills are good enough, he said I've given him a few that were the best he's ever had. The only problem then can be is that he's disgusted by me.
It's also not just the exes, he's shown me the girls he used to masturbate to, without me ever asking. He randomly tells me he'd fuck a girl, but then turns around telling me he's only sexually attracted to me. He's asked me to wear a wig during sex so I look more like the girls he used to masturbate to. It just seems so incredibly two-faced. He gives me all these standard compliments, every fucking time, but he constantly gives me hints that he'd rather be fucking someone else.

Eeeerr… it's definitely weird. He sounds a bit unhinged.
Maybe he takes pleasure in you being submissive, but mental pleasure, not sexual? Maybe it feeds his ego etc, but it's not arousing. That's just my speculation, but it looks like your problem stems from the bedroom.
Stop being a doormat in bed, if you ask for a change and he says it's okay as it is, say YOU need something different. Try being more dominant, maybe he'll find it hot?

About the small hymen opening… I can feel you, I think. I haven't had sex yet but I tried fingering myself and 95% of times I couldn't even get just one finger in. I also cried a couple of times, out of frustration for this, even if it may sound hysterical. I succeeded a small 5% of times, and only because I've spent more time preparing myself w/ lube. I really hope it's just me being scared and not something that requires surgery, because I don't think I can afford it. How much is it anyway?

With my own personal anecdote, I've been with and living with my boyfriend for 7 years. At about the 4 year mark he continuously started bringing up marriage (in a cute way) saying how badly he wanted to marry me. Asking what kind of ring I'd want, etc. Being a cornball.

The thing is I do not ever plan on getting married. I don't believe in it for myself. And he knows that and understands and is fine living the rest of our lives without marriage.

But he always makes cute little comments like "I'll be here if and when you ever decide suddenly you want to do it".

I guess I'm not really looking for advice since I know I gotta end this shit but I at least need to rant.

I met a guy online, we became best friends best buds, we considered meeting and dating but snuffed the idea after discovering he wants kids and I do not. So we had a couple years of actually getting to know each other without weird girl/boy tension. Cool.

I got a bf, things went south, I decided to meet up with best friend since I was still in his country and had fuck all else to do. He was (and still is) sweet as can be and took care of me while I was miserable and never made a move. After a month of living together we kissed for the first time and here's where things get iffy.

So I started noticing him as a potential bf during our first month together when he was taking care of me without fawning over me. Just being a stand up guy going out of his way for a friend. Never pressured or hinted at anything and never even made a semblance of a move. He admit he hadn't seen me that way either once we kissed so it was an odd turning point. After things started turning more into relationship material he's become very… feminine? He's extremely clingy, cuddly, like as subbish as one can get and he goes above and beyond for me. He makes little cute moan whimper sounds when he's cuddling and wants my attention. These things can be nice but with him it's always a lead in for sex. If a boy is being cute with me I just want to cuddle and maybe flirt the way up to sex so it's really gotten annoying having him just acting and talking like a little kid and being surprised when I'm drier than a desert. Side note: originally I was on the fence about physical attraction to him since he's basically anorexic skinny and a bit shorter, face not my preferred type etc. petty nonsense shit. We had about a month of banging where those things mattered not because he was cool and it's great realizing you love your best friend.

The things I mentioned gradually started to worry me but I was drinking a lot at the time so I guess I just shoved my concerns under the rug of alcohol. I came back to my country, he still continued the cuteness game while still trying to make it a sexual thing and I realized my vagina is pretty much clamped up for good. I did promise to visit him again in fall and well, here I am. I thought I owe him the decency of an explanation or to test the waters to see if anything's fixable.

We had some issues since he realized I was a bit distant and he said he cried about it and I feel awful. But after doing my best to politely explain that well… fuck, I want to feel like I'm dating a man and this isn't working for me, it seems he may be desperately trying to fix things by doing the things I dislike in doubletime. He's told me he loves me in his language with a baby voice while wiggle cuddling and I just can't be doin' with this. I adore when the person I'm dating is "switches roles" and lets me take care of them but this extreme clinginess is not my thing.

This super sucks. I don't want to be a heartless asshole and especially not towards my best friend but we've had sex twice since I've been here and it's been such a chore.

I'm miffed because bf came home drunk last night (3am) and I fucking hate babysitting him when he's drunk because he's obnoxious as fuck.
He's loud, and is an annoying drunk but thinks he's being cute. Then he gets offended if I'm not in the mood and don't want to horseplay. He's handsy and all over me insofar as touching me/tickling me/harassing me thinking he's being playful, and no matter how many times I tell him to knock it off he keeps at it until I get very angry (then he plays victim). He's completely useless when drunk and I can't expect him to do the simplest of tasks ie. take care of his own dishes if he has a snack.
And worst of all I feel he's only ever sexually interested in me when he's drunk, but that's a turnoff to me. Like I told him I was tired and was going to bed but he followed me in and kept trying to grab/bite me and brushing up against me with his erect dick. Like fucking hell.


I feel it's subversively abusive behavior if not for the fact that it makes me uncomfortable and I dread when he's drunk. I'm going to talk to him about it because it's not the first time it's happened in our three years living together. It's just bullocks that I don't want to have to deal with, and I wish he just had the maturity to realize how shitty it is to treat someone like that.

I was doing a workout plan that I found and tailored for myself using a bunch of resources online, I kept it up for months but I was just getting a worse body instead of my dream body. It was 30 minutes of cardio at varying intensity, then about an hour of weights without breaking for whatever body part it was that day. Monday was legs, Tuesday was Arms, so on. My ass vanished within a few weeks and I kept hoping it was the fat vs muscle and that the muscle would come in but after half a year I just wanted to cry from my new Bobby Hill ass. My upper abdominals under my breasts bulked out from muscle and I constantly looked bloated but my lower stomach got saggier and lower on my body to where I almost had a fupa but never got much smaller in fat. The cellulite on my legs was horrific, it went from the very backs under my butt to all throughout my legs and I looked terrible. My legs didn't lose any fat or change shape, even the fat pockets up were my thigh gap is. I just broke out with cellulite like a teenager and zits.

A lot of it was just YMMV I figured out. I'm too quad dominant for squats to work out my butt or hips, I have too bad a hip flexor for other shit, etc. In the end it was a bunch of people arguing over what % of protein your diet needed, if squats did or didn't work, if cardio was killing your workout.

I basically now just to mild things like walking 45-60 minutes a day at least, leg lifts while I'm sitting at work, and resistance band upper body stuff while watching tv. I stopped watching my diet and just ate what I wanted but made sure I didn't overeat my calories.

She smoked a lot of tobacco and weed mixtures etc. I fucking hated that she kept sharing this stuff with me, wanting me to hide it from my mom. I finally snapped when my mom called to tell me, told her everything, the things my sister did, the things I worried she was still doing.

They heard everything she did right before the miscarriage and told me they don't want to know, they've constantly ignored any issue she has by straight up denying it. Even when she was arrested due to her issues they STILL bailed her out and get her out of debt. Fuck I'm the younger one and I've been living on my own for years.

I applied for a travel in Iceland with erasmus+ (I'm European), I already did it once a year ago and I've had a great time so I wanted to go again.
A guy from my country that was in my team last year is now part of the team of the organization that runs the event.
A girl I know and I'm friends with on Facebook is a very close friend of this guy. I was notified via email that I wasn't chosen for this travel/event a week ago. And the guy was the one who notified me on the association's behalf, so it appears they made the selection a week ago…
And yet, this girl has been publicly boasting about "going to Iceland" for 2-3 months.
Also, she doesn't speak English (required for the event) and she's not into the topic of the event (also required), so it's really weird that she was chosen.
If 2+2=4, the guy must have promised her a place between the 4 people they had to choose and she will see a place she has little knowledge of, where she won't be able to communicate with the other partecipants except of the ones from my country because she doesn't speak English, in an event which topic doesn't really interest her.

I'm not even going to hide my salt here but jesus fucking christ, sometimes I wonder if it's even worth going through the trouble of getting good and trying to draw fanart all the time to get noticed. If immature weeb art level fucks like her can get notes on a piece of shit fanart like what she posted, it honestly makes me wonder if it's worth it. It's petty, but it makes me so mad that all you have to do is appeal to the right people/fandom and boom you get followers/an audience/supporters whatever.

I've been having a tough time with my art/art style already and this shit is making me lose hope

It sounds more like you want to be popular than just good at art. Obviously there's no problem with wanting people to like your art, but you should try to focus on doing it for your sake. If you enjoy what you're doing and are satisfied with your work, it should be worth more than just being popular. If you want that, just sell out and do crap like your friend.

I get where you're coming from. A following has a lot of perks: they give feedback, they support you, they can make you feel like it was worth it in a sense. Hell, having a following means that you can even just open a Patreon and have people throw money at you for doing what you like. You can work on it step by step, through hashtags, bandwagoning on the most popular shows etc. but try not to make it an obsession, because that's when people lose interest in what they do and the quality starts dropping

Well after 4 months post-grad I finally got offered a (shitty, low-paying) job, but hey it's a job so i'm going to take it. The problem is that it involves working with kids and I'm terrible with kids. I just don't know how to relate to them or talk to them…kind of weird. I have really bad social anxiety as it is and for some reason interactions with small children make me more uncomfortable than with adults? I guess because I just feel like an idiot when I have to try and make them laugh and feel comfortable.

I know I'm making a mistake by taking this job because I'm just flat out not going to be any good at and will probably get fired for being a fucking loser, but I'm desperate for a job and I can't be picky anymore at this point.

Fuck man. I wish my life after graduation went in a much, much different direction. I'm not doing anything that I want to do, and it's making me fear for my future career. My career is the most important thing to me…and it's just not looking good right now.

With kids it should be easier. They don't judge you or think you're weird, you can just be yourself around them. Talk to them in a simple way so they understand you, play with them and don't worry.
Did you graduate in the education field?

No. 205093

>>205092
It makes sense that it would be easier but I've always had trouble with it. :/ The thing is that "myself" is just a ball of anxiety and depression, so I think the reason is that its hard for me to pretend to be cheery and sweet like you should be with kids. I'm just…not like that.

And nope not in education. I graduated with a fine arts degree, and this job is technically 'in my field' but it's not creative in the least. Which is fine for me right now, because I've had a lot of trouble finding a job period. And I figure it will give me time to focus all of my creativity on personal projects and see if those take off.

I work in childcare, and felt the same way when I first started. You will get the hang of it. Getting along with the kids is one thing, but more important is looking out for their safety. Have safety in mind, and take action to report and/or prevent risks. Whoever your superiors are will take notice.

The best way to get along with most children (under 10) is to be their audience. Ask them about their favourite game, their pets, their family, etc. and really listen to their responses. Pretty soon you'll be surrounded by the little bastards pulling at your clothes and saying "watch this!! Look what I can do!!"

I can't stand my bestfriend anymore. The problem is that if I cut him off of my life, I'll lose all my other close friends.
I met him when I was finishing high school (10 years ago) and I was completely alone due to family problems and shitty people around me (basically, fake friends who couldn't care less about me even if they tried). And we had some special connection. He was having problems with their friends too (who he had known for more than 20 years) and troubles with himself because he's gay and he just got out of the closet.
For the first year, he became an essential part of my life, he gave me the support I needed and I did the same with him. But then we started school, he introduced me to his friends and that's where it all went shit.
I always knew he's an egocentric and self-centered person but I didn't have any problem with that, as I have low self-esteem and I kind of admired his personality. But he's also very, vey jealous of his friends. They liked me and wanted to hang around with me and I understood that this could make him angry somehow because he was with him since he was a child and I didn't want to feel like I was excluding him, so I didn't meet his friends if he wasn't around, or I tried not to talk to them as much as him.
However, he always got an excuse to throw shade at me on Twitter, to stop talking to me and calling me crazy when I asked him what was wrong, and just acting as if I was a nuisance. The thing is that he did it in such a way that I actually believed I was crazy or boring. I couldn't stand the idea of being alone again, so I endured so much shit of him. Some of his friends told me (years later) that when we're together with them, it's like I disappear, because I don't talk too much, I don't join too much, etc.
This went on for more than seven years. The truth is that I felt guilty and bad almost all the time, because I truly thought I was doing something wrong. He never told me what bothered him (he's the proudest boy I've ever met, he'd die before telling me he's afraid of me being better than him at something), but it was so obvious, I became paranoid about saying the wrong thing or meeting someone when I wasn't supposed to or something.
It came to a point where I felt guilty of not telling him E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. As I was lying to him. And when I told him these things, he used to tell me that I didn't owe him any kind of explanation lmfao when actually he got pissed if I didn't tell him.
Obviously, his friends became my friends too after a few years and to this day they're my closest ones. Two years ago, I stopped caring about his reactions that much. I finally saw how toxic our relationship was, specially considering he's only my bestfriend.
Right now, I just feel tired and anxious about our friendship. I feel like I'm always doing things to please him, always available when he wants to meet or he needs someone to, i.e., go shopping. When we're fine, I feel extremetely grateful for him and I remember all those things that made him my friend at the beginning, I know I owe him my friend's group and he's a big part of my life, period. But when we're bad (I mean, when HE'S bad, not talking to me, being shady or just ''meh'' about everything I told him), I remember why I'm starting to become this tired and bitter about this whole situation.
I actually became more distant in the past years, I stopped caring that much and I actually saw how he is, but as I said, he's super passive-agressive and tries to make a joke of everything he does / says to me so he doesn't show his true colours to any of our friends, so they don't know at all how shit he is with me. They tried to calm down things sometimes (when he joked about me in front of them) but they don't know, of course, how many ''ok'' I can get in one of our conversations, or how he lefts me on read when something pissed him off but doesn't want to tell me so I become anxious about what exactly I did wrong. I know it may sound silly but he knows exactly what hurt me (because some of my old exfriends did it) and still does it.
Also, he's not the same person I've met. Now he's always bitch-talking about everyone and everything, he became so fake, I can't understand it. He's always making plans with people who treat him like shit and rants about it with us and then we have to see photos of them as if nothing has happened.
And who I'm trying to fool, they've been friends for more than twenty years and he didn't do anything wrong to them at all, they'd pick his side and I just know it. One couple broke up a few years ago after more than 4 years of relationship and that kind of separated our group in two, so I know this would be similar or worse.
TLTR; my ''bestfriend'' is an asshole but we have the same friends group and if I cut him off, I'd be completely alone kek

I really don't want to break up with him but I just don't feel as if i love him as much as i did before this. I need to get over myself, I know what he did was mega shit but we talked for DAYS about it and he has shown so much remorse and been extremely apologetic.

Same anon. Things will get better when you move out.
I remember when I lived at home that I could expect to be yelled at or bitched about something everyday when I came back after school. My mom would do shit to hurt my trust like read through my diary while holding me back, and shaming me about certain things. She constantly criticized me and made me feel bad for being myself. When I acted out and rebelled she would wonder why. Never felt I could talk to her about anything, and to this day I give her a watered-down version of my life happenings because to say anything personal and have it criticized/insulted would hurt me like in the past.

It's like the second I hit pre-pubescence around middle school, my mother treated me like a shit there on out. One time she yelled at me "I WISH I HAD A DAUGHTER WHO WOULD ACT NICELY IN ALL THE OTHER MOTHER AND DAUGHTER RELATIONSHIPS I SEE," not realizing that she raised me this way and she's mostly to blame.
Even hugging her and kissing her cheek feels so artificial and forced because she simply never fostered that kind of relationship with me after I turned 10.

Omfg are you me? I made a promise to myself to never talk to my mother once I finally move out. I'm such a trusting, nice person and I keep letting her back into my life. I'm pretty lonely and I think it'd be nice to have a relationship with someone in my family so we can go shopping, cook together, watch films…but that's just a fantasy.

>My mom would do shit to hurt my trust like read through my diary


Mine does the same. She's previously read through my texts and gotten my siblings to show her my facebook profile. She'll comment on things she shouldn't know just to remind me that she has the POWER to stalk me. I feel like when I move out she'll regularly show up at my apartment unannounced.

>She constantly criticized me and made me feel bad for being myself.


100% and I think it was worst during puberty. Like she was shaming me for growing up. She didn't like it when I wore makeup. She especially didn't like it when I gained weight because it damaged HER image. I think that's the only reason why mothers care about their daughters "rebelling". She'd tell me in great detail all the things that were ugly on me and I fucking hate her for doing that because I can never forget them. I still hear her nasty little voice every time I get dressed in the morning or every time I feel an ounce of confidence.

>Even hugging her and kissing her cheek feels so artificial and forced because she simply never fostered that kind of relationship with me after I turned 10.


Exact same thing happened with me. She was never close to me when I was a child but suddenly she started demanding I kiss her on the cheek in front of other people to make it seem like we were close. She'd act hurt when I was awkward about it. One day she's trying to be a "cool mom" and try to "hang out" with me (which is really just a way for her to get me to trust her so I'll open up about things she'll use against me later) and the next minute she's screaming at me for being a waste of space, fat, lazy demon. I don't even know why people like this have children. Like when you know you're a terrible human being who hates other people, just get your tubes tied.


Hope you're doing well now, anon xxx

Is it possible to be a nice, likeable person without actually attracting friends? I like to be nice to people, and pleasant to work with, but I really don't like people. Just being my quiet, boring self at work had garnered a few work "friends" over the last few months. It was nice to chitchat with them every few days, and that was ALL that I wanted and nothing more. Then one of them wanted to hang out, and I said yes, because I can't say no. There's no good way of telling some one you've been friendly talking with for a few months that, no, you aren't free Friday to play tennis with him and his girlfriend . God, I hate "hanging out" with people my age. I feel like so many people my age act no differently than teenagers, and it becomes especially apparent when "hanging out." One of the friends quickly super annoying. They never shut up and go on and on about normie pastimes like vaping and sports plays. Some of the things they said to me I ended up wanting to slap them for, and everything snowballed until one day I got clearly irritated with every asshole thing they did. And I got stuck being clearly irritated with them for days afterward because I couldn't just forgive and forget. They've got the message now, and don't sit with me at lunch now. And now I just feel really bad about it. And this is one of the reasons I hate friends. I inevitably get annoyed with them, can't forget it, and you can't just dump a friend so easily. I end up feeling awful about getting annoyed and not being patient with them. Sometimes I feel like they're emotionally draining and trying to take advantage of me, and feel bad that I get annoyed about that too.
The other friends all end up wanting to all hang out together, and do a bunch of teenage tier things like sit on the couch till 3 am and watch YouTube videos and get drunk on weekdays. I end up leaving only after an hour because I can't put up with it.
I don't even get why they bother inviting me, I really don't have much in common with them. I think they're desperate for as many friends as possible sometimes. One of them I thought was a cool person, till I hung out with them alone. I've ranted before about it. They acted inappropriately. I'm so sick of meeting people I think are one way, and then turn around and betray my trust.
Sorry for my cringey rant.

I too like polite conversation at work, but I was never interesting in becoming friends with my coworkers because they're either way older than me or have different things going on like kids that I can't possibly relate to. Problem is, people take kindness and politeness so personally that they think I'm being that way for their sake and that it's not just in my nature to be so towards most everyone.

I think you sound conceited and awful but I do get what it's like when people with nothing in common with you try to make you talk. People will survive you if you politely decline their offers, nobody wants to waste their time getting to know someone who will ghost them anyway so safe both of you the hassle and learn to say what you mean. If you're worried about them not getting it then wear headphones whenever you are alone, have a book with you at lunch and stick to telling people that you're going to the gym or to get caught up on videogames after work. To begin with people might take it personally that you've swapped personas but eventually they will just accept that you're the friendly loner. Be firm and learn to repeat yourself whilst smiling e.g. "yes I'm just finishing this chapter before lunch ends….Yes, I'm just going to finish this chapter now before lunch ends".

Thank you for understanding where I'm coming from. I can't ever talk about this with my family. My mom would never let me hear the end of it. It's such a huge relief to know other people feel that way.
I can't just say no. It sounds so stupid, but I've never been able to. I know that I'm disappointing them and feel like I'm being horribly mean by declining their offers. I really realize what a problem it is now that you both bring it up. Is it alright if I ask if you ever feel bad about saying no? Do you have excuses you give? When I give excuses, (which I do a lot) like I'm too tired or I'm grocery shopping after work, they still don't get the message and keep asking.

I never pretended to be like them, and have no intention of acting like them. I'd really say I'm the complete opposite of most of them. I'm sorry that's how my post was interpreted.

This and this. She's pissy that I never hug/kiss her, but she never wonders why. It's like she's completely unaware, as if her brain shuts down whenever she's doing something wrong (which is almost all the time). When confronted, she denies EVERYTHING, gets very aggressive if you keep talking about it and if you don't shut up she beats you. I used to be confident, bubbly, and charismatic. Now I'm a bubble of insecurity because of her daily attacks on my self esteem.
But then she will start blaming me for being insecure. You can't win with that woman.
I have a little sister, somehow my mom wasn't as bad to her as she was to me so they bonded more. She always defends her and spoils her, while guilt tripping me for not showing all that affection my sister shows her, even though it's because of her behavior, she's the one who ruined our relationship. Hell, I was terrified of her when I was a child, she fucking strangled me when she was mad at me for shit like a bad grade or me accidentally spilling the milk on the floor, and she did it more than once. I guarantee that if I tried to confront her about it now, she will deny everything and say that I'm crazy and that I want to send her to jail.
Everything I do is not good enough, all the other girls are better than me, I'm a failure (in my early twenties?), I'm just like my father (they're divorced) blah blah blah. And she has the weird habit of "teaming up" with my sister against me, when my sister is not even present at the moment. Like "Go to sleep when WE do, WE don't want you to disturb US" when my sister didn't even care.

On one hand they've taught me to deal with my problems and not expect help but on the other they've made me bitter and frustrated
they didn't develop out of now where, I was a naive kid who wanted to be kind and took to heart the idea of 'help others and they will help you' but I kept being taken advantage of and kept being shit on by people who I thought were my friends
My parents only really seemed to take interest when it suited them or something was getting really bad too

i dated this guy for like 9 months, so not that long, but it was fairly serious. there were red flags from the start but i'm a goddamn idiot and just ignored them. he emotionally abused me the entire time, he made me feel fucking crazy. we would get in fights and somehow he would completely flip stories around, everything was my fault. i stayed over at his house once and he left early to go to work. I had the day off so i just hung around. when he came home from work he immediately started yelling at me bc i didn't make him food, but he didn't even ask me to?? i kept saying that i would've done it if i had known but he would just keep yelling and that i should've known to make him food when he got home from work! he would make up shit like that. he would yell literally at the top of his lungs at me. sometimes he would just nit pick me for up to an hour at a time and i'd be crying and he'd just be calling me pathetic and a drama queen for crying. he only told me negative things about myself. i'm pretty good looking tbh but he completely destroyed all of my confidence by tearing down my appearance every single day, i'm so insecure and i have no real "self" anymore and i'm jealous and bitter towards everyone now. he would tell me he looks at other girls just to make me upset i think. one day he assaulted me because i read him a news headline. he doesn't like our country's president and likes to not be aware of what's happening in the world, apparently. i read the headline and he started getting madder and arguing with me and it escalated and he grabbed me and pushed me out of the room, he took my phone, he locked me outside in the snow with no shoes, he threatened to throw my phone in a puddle of melted snow, he let me back inside and he corners me into a kitchen corner and he is in my face yelling at me and his face is so fucking crazy from the rage and he leaves the kitchen and i'm standing there shaking and crying and trying to call an uber home and he storms back out again like 45 seconds later and corners me again and he's yelling at the top of his lungs right in my face again very aggressively and i'm saying nothing and i instinctively put my hands up in front of my face bc i'm so scared and he grabs me by the wrists and throws me across the kitchen, my glasses literally flew off my face. i'm a 5'1" 105lb girl and he is a 6' ~170lb man. i was literally covered in bruises. sorry that was so long but i literally like had a flashback as i wrote that my heart is racing. i ended up going back to him after that which was the dumbest thing i ever did. he had another freakout, not as bad and ended up dumping me (for another stupid minor reason). i'm glad he did bc i don't think i ever would've left that relationship, i'm really afraid of change. there's something wrong with me where i keep dating people who emotionally abuse me and i don't know why. anyway if anyone read this whole thing thanks i really appreciate someone like..listening. i can't talk to anyone about this

Fucking same. I hate how fake people is with me, how they always take advantadge of me, how when I stop caring that much I'm the bad one because I don't put enough interest in others, but when I do care I feel rejected or ignored.
I'm tired of trying to be nice all the time when people couldn't care less about me or, worse, makes me feel like shit for ''worrying to much'' about it. Sometimes all I need is to feel that someone cares for me the same way as I do, I just need someone to ask me how my fucking day went, or wanting to see me once in awhile. I'm so sick of fake ass people trying to be passive-agressive and acting all innocent when I confront them. I'm not dumb, I can see throught their lies and I fucking hate myself sometimes because I can't stop feeling guilty for wanting to believe them.

This >>205219 anon here.

I really get where you're coming from with the whole "saying no" shit. Personally, I was abused as a kid and learned to put myself on the back burner for everyone else, which led to a lot of feelings of guilt and shame if I said no to anyone about anything.

What helped me climb out of that mentality was understanding the root of why I felt guilty and then realizing that I matter just as much as the person I want to say no to. My feelings, wants, and needs are just as valid as theirs. I have the right to say no, without explanation, and eventually, I just bulldozed over any guilt by saying "fuck you" to it and to the person if they tried to make me feel bad.

As far as giving excuses, like I said, you don't need to give one. If someone asks you to hang out or do something specific, you literally just say "no, thanks, I think I'm going to pass." If they press you excessively, be stern and just say that you don't want to and end the discussion. If they try to make you feel bad or are starting to be a dick about it, why would you even feel guilty at that point, especially if you don't even want to hang out with them? They're obviously assholes not worth your time.

All in all, it sounds like you just need to up your confidence by a lot, girl.

Is there anyone here who lives a relatively solitary lifestyle by choice and is happy?

I have had very bad social anxiety my entire life. (I fit all of the symptoms of Avoidant personality disorder, but I've never been diagnosed so I try not to read too much into that. It is kind of hard not to though.) I only had one friend throughout high school, but it was a very unhealthy relationship and five years after graduating I have finally cut ties with her. Surprisingly, I'm not lonely or upset at all. I've never had any kind of romantic relationship, exc. My lack of social life and normal progression bothered me all throughout high school and the first two years of college. But now the thing is that…it doesn't. And I feel like it still should. However, I just can't bring myself to care.

I am probably going to resume therapy sometime next month after ~six years without it, so I don't know if that will change anything. But I'm just kind of happy being alone now. I know that isn't healthy, but at this point I just feel like if I'm content by being alone why should I try to force myself to live a
'normal' life just to feel like I'm living right?

The part that makes me pause a little bit is that I'm only 22, so I assume that I know nothing about life. I know that I don't. Even though I'm content right now, will that kind of life bite me in the ass ten years down the road? I never wanted marriage/children so that isn't really an issue for me..I'm more worried about friends in general. Maybe a romantic relationship if I can find someone who is ok with a severe introvert (to a fault) who has no interest in those things either.

I know I have a lot of issues that have gone ignored for years now, because I just can't bring myself to get help. I used to be extremely depressed and sad all the time, but now I'm just numb to everything. I'm never happy, I'm never sad, I never cry. I would say I'm still depressed but it comes in the form of complete numbness, indifference, and lack of motivation. I'm wondering if my view on socializing and relationships has taken a similar turn. Like I've gone so long without them that now I'm so used to the feeling that it's comfortable for me, despite it not being good.

I don't know. Just don't know.

This is fine and not a red flag for mental/emotional issues in itself, but
>I'm never happy
>I would say I'm still depressed but it comes in the form of complete numbness, indifference, and lack of motivation.
makes it sound like it's affecting you worse than you realize.

I have barely any friends but I am happy and in a good mood most of the time, so I don't think my lack of a social life reflects any deeper issues. But in your case, don't you just need to spend some more time being social to figure out if it's something that helps you or not? If it improves your mood, keep doing it. If not, feel free to give it up.

>I used to be extremely depressed and sad all the time, but now I'm just numb to everything. I'm never happy, I'm never sad, I never cry.

That is a form of severe depression, where people lose all emotions. If you cannot feel happiness, how can you state that you feel happy with your current lifestyle?

I'm worried you're a bit in denial, Anon, and you kinda know it. Just like you said, you're too cocooned in your lifestyle you don't have the courage to change. You haven't experienced what good friendship and relationship could be, so you convince yourself that you're content.

For centuries, social isolation has been a test or a punishment. People had to go through it to see if they're strong enough not to come out, well, broken.
The monks you see that live in huts alone, have decades of spiritual journey behind them and have decided to do it by choice, not because they are unable to form relationships.

So, please, don't start off negative that therapy won't help you. Try with small steps. Go for a walk every day or try going to group exercises. If you can, get blood test and see which vitamins you're lacking. Try connecting to people on the internet at least. My parents are very controlling and I was very isolated so I've found many good friends and even my boyfriend on the internet. If you have some hobbies, connect to the people online about them.

So a friend of mine hosted a small party, 7 people including myself. I thought she was just drunk, but it also turned out she was also exhausted and I just didn't notice. Anyways after everyone else left it turned out she wanted to go to bed like 3-4 hours ago but has trouble being assertive in general. I tucked her in to bed on the couch like she wanted, then she called me gay and commented on how her parents never did anything like that then immediately went to sleep.

Its left me with a mix of strange feelings that I don't know how to process. Her mother is probably borderline, her father was physically and mentally abusive. She was honestly fairly emotionally damaged when I first met her but I've watched her make a lot of improvement and end a lot of unhealthy relationships. I never had to deal with anything so horrible, my parents despite their flaws are good people and she can't say the same.

I don't want to say I pity her, but I wish she had a much better experience growing up. I've never been good at putting myself in other peoples shoes so most of this is new to me.

During a nap, I had a weird dream where I saw a girl getting raped and I was really scared so I tried to hide myself in a truck. After that I was supposed to get dinner with a friend so I tried to tell her about it because I woke up feeling pretty weirded out. She asked me, "Why were you scared if the guy couldn't see you? You were safe." Well, yeah, it was a dream.

I guess my dream wasn't a big deal, but

There was a girl I was best friends with several years, but lately I feel like she's been flakey. I recently became much closer with another girl. We didn't get along for a long time, but due to some circumstances we ended up living together for a while, which was enjoyable, and now my friend makes time to talk to me every week even though she is busy with grad school.

Friend #1, I haven't heard her voice for a couple of months. I said she was free to call me because she mentioned feeling lonely, but I feel like she won't take my offer. I don't feel like she is obligated to talk to me, but I wish there was a way to remind her that friendship is what you put into it.

This weekend, she wanted me to drive over to her place for her birthday, but it would have taken 8 hours round trip, and I just didn't have the time.

Recently a client contacted me and wanting to buy stuff off my amazon. He bought a bunch of stuff off my wishlist like a super expensive gaming computer, monitors, camera, ect. Started to have a slight redflag cuz I didn't believe it all. So a few days goes by and he's not talking to me, and I asked him to send shipping info to me so I know when it's arriving. Doesn't reply, next day gives a bullshit excuse and doesn't want to show it info. Tell him to just blur it all out then except the shipping info. Never does.
Been an entire week since he supposeably bought everything, and after being ignored and contacting Amazon I discovered it is very amazingly possible to fake purchase things off someones amazon by simply clicking "buying it from somewhere else" option.

I was helping her grocery shopping one time and I asked her what was next on the list, cue her blowing up and telling me I have a shit attitude.

No, today after they wished me a happy birthday, they had to add on
"Sorry we don't talk more, it's just now that I'm a cosplayer we have nothing in common."

Excuse me? Uh okay, sorry you had to take time out of your busy schedule to say happy birthday. Honestly that second part was a slap to the face and I would have preferred they not say anything to me at all. This isn't the first time a friend of mine got an elitist attitude after cosplaying.

I agree, they should change it provide more info. I get if maybe you find the item cheaper else where, but how could you ever ship it to the person if you didn't know their address? I guess they don't factor in random strangers buying off your list, assuming these people already have them.

My social circle kept complaining about this hostile bitch who decided to befriend one of our popular friends and thought she became a queen bee above us for doing so.
She would start talking down to us in conversations, saying things that made her sound good but actually doing the opposite, shittalking to her neutral friend in our group about others, telling us how much she cared about that popular friend and how we don't care enough etc. Weird bullshit like that.

The other day she became especially obnoxious and my friends started to PM me about what an annoying twat she was being while their chat was ongoing. The idiot was basically arguing with them about the popular friend again and it snowballed out of control. I was getting sick of my circle complaining about her but doing nothing.

I checked the conversation myself and tried to reason with the psycho twat. I mean I work in service so I'm pretty good at diffusing situations with dangerously stupid and unreasonable people. But she was legit crazy.
I hit so many nerves with her since the things I said made her feel cornered when she couldn't refute them. When she couldn't refute my points, she'd nitpick semantics. When nitpicking didn't work out, she repeated things like a broken record.
I said mockingly towards the end how she was just trying to be our friend's #1, and that sent her over the edge so bad she actually left our circle in a spiteful blaze of bitch fury.

What got my goat was that the 'neutral' friend with her actually had a panic attack after I stood up for them. I think because she honestly feared this person and she was being ferociously PMed by the twat. Still, it felt like bullshit that she had been complaining about this psychonaut to me so when I do something about it finally, it made her upset. Why even have a bitch for a friend like that though? Why care if she leaves?

So I text the twat giving her the opportunity to come back into our circle if she wanted to treat us better and do the right thing by her friend. Yet it turns out she's also a professional victim and chewed me out for the "STUNT" I pulled by (GASP) talking to her!! How I had been "rude" and that I'm "jealous" and "insecure" about her relationship with the popular friend. Also, that from now on bitch would talk through the neutral girl, because I guess bitches have ambassadors these days.

Ugh anon, why? It's a setup that's never in your favor. You're burdened with communicating for people who are too nasty and immature to handle their own problems like adults and actually communicate. Then, if things ever go south, you're the first one to be blamed for their communication issues. It's a situation of abuse.

And then me asking when we could talk, "not yet." Asking when we could got "don't know." as a reply. I ended up saying I didn't have long to talk but I guess to just play their games then and they got pissed asking what they were supposed to do. I said to stick to what they said and talk to me and not play games when they swore they wouldn't. Suddenly I'm possessive, and when I said it was hurtful for them to say that, "I'm not dealing with this."

I'm reaching my breaking point with a good friend of mine.

Sometime last year I made a private Discord server for my friends and me to chat in. Under normal circumstances, the criteria for an invitation is knowing me for a while (average is about 5-6 years) and being over the age of 21 (average age is 27). I broke my own rules and allowed a newer friend in after some drama went down on another server. They were mistreating her for rather dumb reasons and I felt sorry, so I let her into mine so she wouldn't feel so dejected. While I don't regret it at all I really, really wish she wasn't so sensitive so I could just tell her my grievances straight up. I should have known better as a lot of the problems people had with her on the other server are beginning to manifest in mine.

She's very sweet and nice and I genuinely care for her and enjoy being her friend but her insecurity is beginning to drive me crazy. For the most part, she's well-liked on the server, but people do have an issue with some of her tendencies. She's a stay-at-home mother and her husband works full-time, so she's always alone with her kid. I'm not personally bothered by it, but I know for a fact that a few of the other users in the channel very much are. Most of the people on the server don't even like children, let alone want to hear one constantly screaming in the background. She goes on push-to-talk when it gets bad, but she can't exactly turn her child off. To her credit, she does apologize for it and I'm sure it will get better once her kid grows up and learns to be a bit quieter but the fact that her child is screeching compounds with everything else that comes with along with her presence.

She has a bad habit of coming into our Discord server high or drunk. It isn't much of a problem when it's just she and I, but when there are multiple people she tends to dominate conversations or interrupt just to ask people to repeat or explain themselves because she's 'too blazed' or 'had a bit too much to drink'. Only one other person in our server drinks regularly, and when he does he often stays off the internet. Nobody smokes weed so we can't exactly relate to that either. She's a very talkative and boisterous drunk and when those inhibitions do down she often makes awkward or derailing comments, or just flat out starts complaining about whatever family member offended her this week. For hours. Then she goes to sleep.

She goes on these long tirades about her personal family issues as if we know and/or care about these people. If it's not that, then it's her running a joke she heard one of us make into the ground so hard that nobody else finds it funny or talking about what her kid did today. Nobody else in the server is a parent. Most of us dislike children. She's bored many a person to tears talking about how much and what her toddler ate today or how much her kid loves Elmo. It's cute for a while, but even I've begun to tune out when her baby's name gets brought up.

She often bemoans over how her she lost her figure post-baby and pines for her 'skinny' high school body. All the time, even though one look at her old photos shows that she's always been a bit on the heavier side. She also blames a high school ex she dated for 13 months for 'fucking her up' and leaving her an 'insecure mess'. According to her, he never assaulted her beyond pushing her around, which is horrible but not what I'd consider battering, was rude and very openly cheated on her with several girls. Even still, she didn't wise up until way after the fact. It's been over 10 years and she's still salty.

She's also a bit of a whiner. Having a child (unplanned) has cost she and her husband their entire social lives. They used to go to cons and bars and have fun with people their age and buy things, but now all they do is budget and take care of their kid. Even still, I hear nothing but her complaints and desires to do what she did before becoming a parent. I was about to pull my hair out the week of PAX because she would not shut up about wanting to go. Every other sentence out of her mouth was about how she wished she could go to PAX, how jealous she was of people who could go to PAX and her planning out loud ways she could try to go. It got really obnoxious. This repeats with almost anything else she wants that week. Make up, video games, etc.

Her husband is an okay guy. I haven't talked to him much, but from what she tells me she's having a bit of a crisis over his attraction to her. She seems to have picked up on my partner's absolute devotion to me. He's weaned himself off of porn (completely on his own, I had no say in it whatsoever) and only wants to be intimate to or with me, even when fapping. Her husband cannot say the same and has a definite preference when it comes to porn. A preference she does not physically fit into - and it really bothers her. She's always comparing herself to other girls, then doing this weird positive thing where she tries to talk herself up. Like "I may not be [insert pornstar she found on her husband's phone] but at least I have a kid that loves me and a husband!"

The pornstar thing is seriously grating. Not only did she snoop through her husband's phone looking for his porn stash, but after finding it she sat him down and tried telling him that his favorite porn star would never think twice about him, and how he would never have a chance with a girl like her. I mean, he's not exactly what I'd consider a catch (he seems to be very keen on getting her to lose weight and do cosplay despite being even fatter than her) but holy shit that's kind of fucked up. She acknowledges it herself, but does nothing beyond blaming it on her 'period hormones'. She's also quite jealous towards other girls in general (including me according to her, but I suppose I don't fall under the unwarranted hatred umbrella). When she acts up, I either correct her or completely ignore her but it does get really annoying. She wears her insecurities on her sleeve and gets a little boost out of imitating fictional characters she likes (wearing the same kind of glasses as Mei or styling her hair to imitate some anime girl). Normally I wouldn't consider this an issue but she really is trying so hard. I try to let her know that she's cute and pretty as much as I can, but it gets washed out by her self-loathing.

I know she's a good person and has proven it many times over but goddamn does she really need some parent friends who aren't part of her family and some self-esteem. I don't know how much longer we can deal with hearing about her kid's blowouts or how much she hates skinner women.

A girl started sitting with me and two male Asian friends in one of my classes a few weeks ago. She seemed nice, we have stuff in common, she’s a huge weeb, etc. But now they all hang out together and ignore me in class. I found out that they all talk together outside our group chat and study together.. I seriously think she was using me to get to them because they’re Asian.. I’m honestly so hurt I can’t bring myself to go to class and I know that’s pathetic. I’ve never even had a friend group or a group chat before..

She's 100% right and I hate men like that (even my husband calls him a loser) but I was trying to show how loco her jealousy can get. It's one thing to not like porn, but to go through someone else's phone snooping for it is a huge breach of privacy even if he is too much of a lame to communicate with her

I want to tell her that she shouldn't have to deal with a man who doesn't seem all that into her, but she gets super ancy when I imply that. They've been together since they were in school and ran away from Cali to Wash. state.

She did tell me that she 'made a mistake' and gave some guy a bj when she was still a barfly years ago but she claims to have never wanted to be with anybody else. Him and the kid are pretty much all she has.

She may breach his privacy, but it sounds like he has no problem breaching her trust. It's no wonder to me that she's a jealous, insecure mess.
I view obsessive porn watching as a form of infidelity that could eventually lead to bigger problems like irl affairs. Yes, everyone watches porn but it shouldn't be replacing intimacy or else it's a huge red flag. I pity her and understand where she's coming from.

Anyway, she sounds like a really sad person. I'm really not sure if there's much you could say to help her, unfortunately. It's a lost cause unless she's ready to leave him.

I can't offer an answer but I went through something like this with my mum, after menopause she just couldn't be bothered with my shit and seeing me depressed made her so angry. Now that I don't live with her our relationship is almost back to normal unless I try to vent or something. She actually later admitted that when I lived at home our relationship was "close to the end" which is really disturbing and upsetting when I want her support, but unfortunately mothers are just humans and I guess everyone has their limits even when they love someone. Hopefully you can find a friend to rely on and a way to move out soon, but maybe for now you can ask how she is doing herself and try explaining things like "i feel like x because of x and it would help you you could x" to her since sometimes being hopeless at knowing how to help a loved one can make people frustrated

Jesus christ.

What is she expecting? Of course people jerk it to hot people. That just reads to me like shes trying to attack his self esteem so he's happy with her insecure ass. If she has issues about how he should be losing weight too, then by all means bring it up but that shit is just dumb. This relationship sounds like a shit show though, the comments about the ex makes me wonder if she was ever really that invested in the relationship to begin with.

I'm a 24 year old kissless virgin who has never had a boyfriend. I haven't had a single friend since I was 17 years old. The last time I had a crush on someone was two and a half years ago, on someone I never once talked to. I completely ruined my GPA at the community college I was attending after a long period of depression. I graduated with a GPA of 2.2, and was forced to transfer to one of the worst colleges in my state. The major I'm enrolled in is over 70% female, the guys are NOT my type at all. I don't want to associate with anyone here, I have nothing in common with them. I'm trying to raise my GPA to transfer out to a slightly better college.

I get the feeling the two of them feel locked in that relationship, thanks to their mutual crotchfruit. They both want different things out of their partners but have to stay together because they both love their baby. Also, they're not exactly what one would call catches. The husband is kind of schlubby and overweight and she has very strong jealousy and self-esteem issues. Her parents are dead/dying and his family is part of some creepy cult-like Christian sect that they priortize above all else. They ran away to be together so they really don't have much besides what they've already got going on. They're also poor.

Last night there was a flight for older veterans coming home after a day trip to DC, and the entire atmosphere at the airport was absolutely cult-like. So many little flags, screaming and yelling as if everyone was at a giant concert, and legit eagle faces faded over american flags. Culty and corny af with these big fat moms and dads with their gross kids holding these cheap looking flags. I held up a sign and waved a flag anyway, since I knew it was make my family happy if I did. This morning my mother asks me if I had a good time last night, and not wanting to give her my honest opinion, I just tell her "yeah but it was kinda loud and too crowded". Her questions get more and more defensive about the event, eventually devolving into the "aren't you grateful they protect your freedom??" rhetoric. I tell her that isn't that I'm not grateful, its just I don't think that entire event is really that necessary or appropriate. I try and stay civil during the discussion, knowing that she is just overreacting (BTW she tried joining the army, but broke her leg in basic training and got an honorable discharge, so she was BARELY in the army). My mother proceeds to calls me unfeeling and uncaring since I'm not "grateful" for veterans and I'm not overly "god bless america". She says that she doesn't know if she can even live with me anymore, starts crying and says that I'm like an unemotional monster (i have clinical depression but haven't had an episode in months, plus my job is very physically demanding so I'm exhausted a lot). She asks me why I never joined the military (not bothering to ask my other sisters this question), knowing full well that I was planning to years ago. It wasn't until I heard about the rampant rape and assaults on women in the military that I decided not to join. I tell her that that was a justifiable reason as to why not to. She doesn't have anything to say about that but devolves back into how "america is the only country that blah blah" but I'm pretending not to listen at this point. I'm honestly confused and a shocked that she would call me unemotional and uncaring since she knows full well about my depression issues, but its justified b/c me no likey the cult worship of the military? I'm just upset and sad that that matters to her more than her relationship with me.

I used to lie a lot in hs for the sake of people pitying me. I would randomly start crying because depressive/intrusive thoughts. Every time someone would question me, I would tell them one of my parents died. It wasn't true, but I could never admit being depressed. Admitting I had a mental problem was never a option for me because I was already a burden in my eyes. A year in and I dropped out of hs because I felt as if I was going to kill myself in a classroom/bathroom. Everyday I would get thoughts of hurting myself, being so lonely only made it worse. I was on the edge of a serious mental breakdown. Never got help for it, instead I'm a emotionally numb stupid lying adult! I'm fucking pathetic and it feels great that I'm gonna die someday. Three mental breakdowns in year, wow so cool!! Fuck my life.

Firstly, try to stop lying it's not a good basis for anything and will make you feel worse. Then try to talk to people (like small talk first) and start building friendships which I know will be harder than it sounds. Try to talk to a family member (counsellor even?) if possible about general /specific negative feelings you're having. Find/re-appreciate any hobbie that you think will improve your mood and use it as a calming tool.

I have a long story but I will try and condense it….Basically I have mental health issues but because of meds and birth control they are better, but I still fucked up my life. I've been in college since I was 18 switching between majors and a lot of schools. I've wasted a lot of time and have gotten myself into considerable debt. Now that I'm on meds I'm more stable and have more of a feeling on what I want to do. The school I go to right now is ok but the commute is wearing me down. The school is so far away from everything and they could care less about their commuting students. I only have 4 classes 3 days a week but I'm exhausted all the time because of the commute + the school is spread out into different campuses that are MILES apart from one another, and the parking lot I am forced to park at is literally 3 miles away from my campus. I have to take a shuttle from the parking lot to the campus and that literally altogether takes an extra 20 minutes because the drivers are always SUPER slow and take their sweet-ass times. It's really wearing me out and I'm even thinking about transferring again if possible, I had been accepted to better and closer schools but they didn't give me enough aid. I know a lot of people are thinking it's probably not worth it but the other thing I really wanna major in is on a completely different campus and it would be such a pain in the ass to stay at the school and major in both things I want. It sucks though because I am older than a lot of other people, and I never realized it but there is a huge maturity difference between me and younger students (I work + have a car and many students barely work or never even had a car or had any hardship in their lives). I always wanted the "traditional" college experience but honestly I think I just want independence…I want actual GOOD friends (I have none) and want to be able to hang out with people. It sucks how immature some people are and how they don't take shit seriously.

literal hell on earth. temp to perm in general sucks because agencies make you do all the donkey work when you're a temp and you keep plucking away hoping they'll take you on permanently. and then when they do they overload you with work because you already have the "experience" on how to do everything even the bullshit beyond the scope of your job, from temping. it's almost always like they give you so much more responsibilities than someone who is hired on to the position organically.

yup, I've tried electric epilators and two different kinds of those spring-y ones (a no-name brand from aliexpress and a fancy tweezerman one). the problem with hormonal hair is that it's much coarser and thicker than just the regular peach fuzz hair on everyone's face so a lot of times epilators will snap the hair instead of pulling it out at the root, because the hair is just too thick to come out easily. This leads to pimples and ingrown hair when the leftover broken hairs either get embedded in your skin or bend in on themselves and embedded in another pore. It's gnarly business, my face is a battleground.

Job will be without a contract for sure. Where I live 80% of jobs are contractless, so they can get away with it. Then they whine that "Waaaah young people are so spoiled, they don't wanna work 9 hours mon-sat for 400$ monthly at max!!" and consequently that "Waaaaaah young people are all emigrating except for the local delinquent kids with no education!!?"
Fuck them and fuck this place, I'm gonna do au pair in a country I like and that has a better economy and employment situation so that I can move there later.

I'm stuck giving my little sister rides to her college now that I'm doing some paperwork before I can start my job. It's literally 2 hours a day, everyday, of me driving her and then back home, and then going to pick her up again. I literally want to kill myself. She's so rude, and my parents don't want to her to take the bus at all. But I had to take the bus every single day, an hour each way, when I was going to college, so what gives? She acts like a spoiled brat in the back and I'm afraid I'm going to get into an accident because she won't stop bitching and whining and screaming about irrelevant shit when I'm trying to drive.

last semester I finished the 2nd year of uni however this summer I finally decided to change my degree. I think it was the right decision as my current degree is more in line with what I want to do and I do not regret the change from that point of view (arguably the only point that matters) but now I have to repeat 2nd year basically (and take some 1st year courses as well) and it is so weird and humiliating. in theory I know it's not but I've always been drilled to believe academuc performance is of utmost importance and this feels like I've been held back a year and am so much older than anyone else in my classes (I'm not, only by a year or two). Also not that I had friends in my courses before, but now I literally don't know anyone at all and I am so bad at socialising it feels like i won't make any friends in these courses either. This is even more retarded than anything above but I'm also a foreign student and honestly more than anything I'd like to blend in which I have had some mild sucess in on the job front but in uni setting I literally feel like a foreign species (again, I know it's just in my head and not the reality but in praxis I just die). the thought of joining a society literally paralyses me.
I probably just have social anxiety and or depression (or just a really shitty personality as it has always been difficult to do anything vaguely social or public) but like currently my misery hasn't exceeded the dread I feel about going to doctors so.

Meh, I don't know anon. Depends where you live and your social group I suppose. I'm American and made it clear to everyone that I'm leaving the country for good. I left the U.S. before, and it's a falling country. Most Americans I know are really good people, and it makes me sad seeing everything falling behind/apart. To make it clear, I'm from a wealthy area and not a hick town.

It's become a country of broken people, broken dreams, etc. Most people encouraged me to leave because they also see what is happening. Many of these people are in their 60's, 70's, and 80's (I lived around a lot of friendly and awesome senior citizens) and have seen the U.S. declining. Right now I live in Europe, but I plan to move back to an East Asian country. The safety, infrastructure, continued development, and lack of crazies everywhere is really why I'm headed that direction (I know crazies exist, but not like San Francisco or New York where they are freakin everywhere…). Even South East Asia is acceptable for me personally. I'm working toward gaining permanent residency so I can bring my family over if things get too bad in the states.

I don't have any real advice on your family, but if you wish to leave, then I hope you find a way out and it's as easy and stress free journey as possible! <3

If it's any consolation, the one person who stressed to me that the U.S. is the best place ever and I shouldn't leave gave up his citizenship to become an American, his parents are miserable here, and he has security cameras in and around his home because of burglars/has multiple guns due to crime.

I was just thrown out of my workplace (small theater i work as a janitor at) by a cop claiming there had been some crime of violence there yesterday evening (they were investigating and shit and he wore a mask over his mouth). He didn't want to tell me more, so i called up my colleagues to ask them, and they were really surprised and knew nothing about it. Another colleague just called me and said one of the operators had seen what he thought was someone getting raped by two guys on the roof of the building. He had called the cops immediately, but they haven't told him anything either.

I wasn't so bothered by this up until i heard about the rape suspicion. Now i can't stop shaking and i feel nauseated.
I can't stop thinking about how much i want those rapists dead, how much i hope someone fucking mauls them to bits. I know it happens every day, but it somehow affects me so much more because it happened at my job.

I don’t know if this is more of a vent or more of a sarcastic “wow”… but I went back to my hometown and walked around with my mom for a local festival thing they put on every year around this time. An addition this time around was a pseudo pub crawl thing and at one of the drink locations, there was a guy that thought I looked familiar. Since it was an outside venue, I took my sunglasses off to see if maybe it jogged his memory or not, and immediately he was like “yeah! You were the high school mascot! The guy they had after you sucked!”.

… I was mascot 7 years ago. This guy, who I didn’t recognize at all, remembered junior year high school me.

I don’t know whether to be proud that I’m mildly recognizable or scared that he still vaguely knows who I am. But I guess it’s a plus I still look like my high school self? Regardless, it was still weird as hell.

This is formatted more for the letter thread but I don't want to necro it.

You are so perfect and I have never felt even remotely like this about anyone ever before. You're smart, and funny, and so much like me. I've had the worst crush on you and it hasn't even been that long, but somehow it feels like its been forever.

I'm tired of unintentionally thinking about you all day and having dreams about you some nights.
I'm tired of how I act in our friend group: Forcing lots of conversations with other people to hopefully get you involved in one (when I put a lot of effort into this and fail I want to die). Pretending I care what people who aren't you say. Forcing myself to say the occasional rude remark to you like I would anyone else (when you return the favor I want to die), ignoring you here and there as if I don't care about you. Neglecting what appear to me as chances you're giving me to talk one on one with you (but I'm probably delusional). And I put in all this effort so that when you say something I can at least be around to hang on your every word, that's just as unimportant as everyone else's, but for some reason means so much to me.

I know you rejected me, and for a reason that was and still is valid. I knew going in what the answer was because of that, and I was hoping that answer would give me peace. It didn't, and because I don't know if you think I'm ugly or if you hate me or whatever, I like to lie to myself and tell me that we could be together after all. I want to cuddle with you, and go on walks with you, and just live life with you, holding hands and skipping down the street.. I'm just hoping deep down inside that if your current relationship tips that you'll magically tell me you have feelings for me, but I know it's not coming.

They're now an integral part of our friendship group and has been for a while… we just never really spoke all that much until we drunkenly kissed on a night out and we've been sleeping together since. Nobody apart from us knows, as it may alter the group dynamic in some way and I can't be bothered for the drama. But I'm also worried that they doesn't want people to know about us due to the sheer embarrassment: I'm a 3/10 on a good day and pretty overweight due to being depressed and eating away the sadness.

>he doesn't really do anything but play games during the day, but messages me about once a day, usually in the evening

but he's been like that since the beginning and is genuinely very quiet and not very talkative

>He's not very affectionate over text, usually talks to me like he would to a buddy

but he does similar things irl and has self-admittedly only ever been in one relationship of a few months, which ended because his gf dumped him for reasons above

>he never seems very interested in doing anything but cuddling and kissing when we do see each other

but he never says anything against it either, he just kind of goes with anything I suggest and is a very passive person in general

>he forgot his mother's birthday and acted like it was no big deal

She's his only parent.

I'm not keeping my hopes up but he might well be a bit socially awkward or something, he absolutely looks the type and I don't mind that. On the other hand, we would be in an LDR for a long time and he might just be trying to pump and dump me by acting the nice guy for all I know.

I really don't know whether to call it quits now or see how it develops with the risk of getting hurt.

I can't play with females on my team, even well behaved ones piss me off.

It reminds me of too many negative things. Like how feminism has destroyed western civilization, destroyed the family structure and caused extreme divorce rates, caused rampant cheating, race mixing, STDs, bastard children, imported third-world immigrants, lowered wages, SJWism, degeneracy and moral decay in general.

All that on top of the fact that they won't fuck me, they'll fuck niggers and any scumbag with money, but not me because I have no money to offer. They have no sense of loyalty or pride in their own race, if their country is invaded the first thing they want to do is start fucking the invaders because they have the money/power now.

All these fucking women have 300+ friends on Steam, and they're almost always queued with a bunch of beta orbiters, stereotypical white knights, they are thirsty for the virtual pussy that they will never get.

How am I supposed to focus on my CSGO match then? That's why I just team kill them until I'm kicked.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

The only reason you're mad at "pedophiles" is because you're jealous that men naturally like younger girls, and not old hags.

If the age of consent wasn't so high, all guys would prefer to be fucking 12-15 year old girls.

The only reason that's even degenerate is because it's pre-marital sex, a 13 year old girl can't consent any better than a 25 year old woman, that's why all throughout history women of any age were not allowed to consent to sex, it was their father who decided. Woman are too retarded to make these decisions even in adulthood, and letting them make decisions for themselves is literally what caused the fall of ancient Rome and modern America.

All throughout history grown men would marry 13 year old girls and there's absolutely nothing degenerate about that. You know what's degenerate? Some guy having to settle for you, and your rotten vagina that's been used by several other men, your horrible entitled feminist attitude, complete lack of morals, materialistic world-view centered around money, and 3+ strains of HPV.

That's degenerate, a grown man marrying a pure 12 year old virgin girl is the opposite of degenerate, although society is trying really hard to corrupt girls this young now.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

What about in the case of 12 to 13 year old boys? Think they can give their consent too?

Anyone who goes after 12 to 13 year olds is mentally ill, period. Older people didn't marry younger people all the time. Usually if 13 year olds were to marry, they would be married off to someone slightly older or their own age. If you look at royalty, that is also the case. Louis XVI, for example, was only a year older than his wife Marie Antoinette. They were both around 15-16 at the time of their marriage.

12 to 13 year olds are not mature, and cannot hold a decent conversation with someone much older than them.

I have no problem with hearing her speak I just wish she'd let me fucking finish my sentence first. It's almost funny because she does it in text messages as well. I'll be messaging her about something and she'll cut me off and change the subject even before I've finished sending her stuff.
We've been friends for about 3 years now and I've only noticed her doing it in the past 6 months or so. We have a bunch of classes together and she messages me a lot so I can never get any rest bite.

Also, I have a younger brother, and when he has temper tantrums, they'll sometimes tell him to stop acting like ME. But he's not a fucking child, he's an adult. It isn't like a kid imitating their big sister.

I feel very boring and uncool. I know it's very silly to be preoccupied with being "cool" as an adult but I can't help it. I recently fell down the rabbit hole of browsing the instagrams of former classmates from high school and middle school, and I felt so absolutely lame in comparison. I know they're only documenting the fun parts of their lives on social media, but it doesn't change the fact that they have the opportunity to do so.

I just really, really want to feel cool too. I want to wear cool clothes and go to interesting places and have fun friends. I wanna have an ~aesthetic~ and a life that reflects it. I've been very boring my whole life. I was a very good student and never got in trouble, but I didn't have the opportunity to really foster many friendships or hobbies during high school because of my rocky home life. I entered a niche STEM field in college, and in addition to struggling socially, I ended up struggling academically too.

Once I graduated, I ended up bouncing around the country for a while because of my unstable home life, so I haven't had the opportunity to make new friends or focus on starting a career. Either way, I doubt I'll be able to actually pursue what I want because it isn't particularly practical or lucrative. So here I am, directionless, jobless, a bit fat and very broke, while my peers are off constantly doing cool and interesting shit.

I occasionally think about overhauling my real life and social media image. I could find a shitty job and try to save up the money to dress cool (even though I admittedly do not have the body to wear the clothes I want to), but I would be wearing a "cool" costume at best. I still wouldn't necessarily have the money or time to live a cool or interesting lifestyle.

In the end, I know that fretting over being uncool is stupid (some-people-have-war-in-their-countries.gif) but it doesn't change the fact that its still something I pine for internally.

if you're worrying this much about being cool, it's unlikely you can turn your life around to be cool out of your volition. i think the thing that would most likely make you cool would be to happen to fall into a group of cool people, but that also does not happen if you try too hard. it seems like your financial situation is pretty unstable so don't waste money trying to chase something that is unlikely to succeed imo

I can't find the work thread, so I'll post it here.

I had an odd experience at work today. I commonly close the door to my office because my desk faces away from the door and not being able to see behind me while I'm working sucks. I have a "please knock" sign on my door, and when someone comes by I'll just stand up and open it.

So today I was sitting at my desk half-working-half-staying-awake, and I hear someone open the door. I spin around and am greeted with a co-worker and the fire marshal. It was apparently sprinkler inspection day.

"Oh hey Anon, this is the new Fire Marshal. You don't have to shake his hand, I know your hands might be sticky from, y'know, bein' in here alone."
I immediately froze at the very implication, and stammered out a "N-no, of course not!"

The Fire Marshal, confused by this exchange, chose not to shake my hand and instead pointed his laser at the sprinkler heads, gave it the all-clear, and left. The co-worker smiled and waved as he left.

And I just felt so DIRTY afterwards. Is this what it's like? What it's like to be triggered? Why would he even come into my office and suggest that in front of a total stranger? I didn't know this guy. This was my first meeting with him, ever. I knew the last guy because I submitted paperwork for him, but I wouldn't make a joke like that to the last guy, much less this guy.

I just started college a month ago and I'm miserable. I haven't made any friends because I don't have the money to live on campus and I drive instead. My professors are the only people I really interact with outside of my family. All of my friends but one are long-distance at this point and I don't even want to be around her because she's become so delusional and aggressive because she's "transitioning" into a guy or some other insane bs. Never had any kind of interaction with guys in high school so when it comes down to it, I feel like I'm just a shitty, fat, ugly 18 year old virgin doomed to be a female incel. I find myself turning to my anime husbandos for comfort and it makes me feel so gross because I think I'm regressing mentally. Nothing remotely sexual interests me anymore, although it's not like I ever got the chance to have sex or anything.

I can barely get myself up in the morning to wash and go to school. I feel like I'm growing distant from everyone I care about and I can't stand it. My life sucks and I have no idea how to make anything better because my usual coping mechanism is avoidance. I don't go to any clubs on campus and I leave as soon as classes are over because I'm tired and hungry and cranky from never sleeping well and I always look and feel out of place on campus. I'm short and fat and greasy no matter how much I try to look better. I feel so insecure about myself and even though I know my family loves me I don't want to bother them with my problems. Everything pisses me off now. I feel like college brought on so many of these issues. What do? Am I just depressed or is it something else ;_;

>have friend who lives in said town who offers me to move in until I can get a job there and offers to help me, problem is my parents would never allow me, an 18 yr old to stay there with no adults, they have a tracker on my phone and bombard me with questions the second I do anything slightly off (ex - say i'm going to the store and stop at a gas station on the way home)
which is another reason why I NEED a job, I want to pay my own bills and take the stupid location thing off so they don't accuse me of being on drugs everytime I turn my phone off and they can't watch my every fucking step

problem. I need gas, I live in the middle of nowhere, I'd walk there if I have to just to get the fuck away from them, but they won't allow it if I can't drive to the location, a lot of places I'm applying to require in-person applications, if I try to print it at home they go through it and start calling me a liar, telling me to remove random things etc (ex, I got rewards in high school, which they don't believe because they never came to the reward ceremony so they called me a compulsive liar and told me to take it off as well as me speaking other languages I learned from reading and taking classes)

I want to print it out at the library, which is fine I don't mind, anyway, the problem is that my last employer didn't fire me but they fired me, meaning I showed up, saw my schedule and only got 15 hours, which would barely pay, started feeling myself starve and breakdown while trying to check out customers, got told to go home, showed up next day, be sat down in office, get told "this isn't mutual you don't benefit us contact us in 6 months when you feel better and we will see"

I hate the way my body looks.
I've had really saggy breasts since I started wearing bras, and I feel like I have stretch marks everywhere (I have some really visible vertical red ones on my stomach). I don't know what to do. I need to stop being such a pussy and lose all this extra weight I have but I have such a bad feeling that even if I got down to 100 I would still fucking hate myself. Not to sound like a teenager, but I can't even stand looking in the mirror at this point.

It sounds silly because of your perspective. You should get a job not because you want to be "cool" but because you're an adult.

Once you're not so broke and have some structure in your life, you can start thinking about your other goals. It's not hard imo to overhaul your whole image and closet once you have money and know exactly what you want.

Thank you, anon, that might be it. I recognized the symptoms of the depression long time ago but he didn't admit it to me until recently. He refuses to talk about things troubling him, he refuses to get help from me and he refuses the help of a professional.

I feel like tooting my own horn here, but maybe it's our relationship going a bit south that has made his sad. I know that's what makes me depressed. I'm even sadder that he won't communicate things.
The other thing I'm worried about is that he has been exposed too much to the thinking of his /r9k/-tier buddies.

I tried to get him to move more and do things together with me, but he just wishes to go home. He says that's what he wants - to sit in a dark room and be on the computer all the time.

I will probably get made fun of for my reaction to this, but did anybody else see this thread?

https://twitter.com/annetdonahue/status/916013055107928064

NYT released a story on Harvey Weinstein's countless allegations of sexual harassment over the years. I saw it on trending so I looked through it and found this tweet. I read every single reply and had to try really hard not to cry because some of them sound like experiences I've had and I know my friends have had. It just breaks my heart that almost every single woman I know has a story like this of varying severity.

Will things ever fucking change or do we just have to keep our mouths shut and deal with this? I know I'm overreacting but this just makes me so angry I feel like I need to self harm. Being a woman seems so fucking hopeless, like no matter what we do people can act like they respect us and see us as something more than just a walking fleshlight with no feelings or ambitions but they're lying. I really want to vent about this but I can't actually put my thoughts into words. There's just too much going on in my head.

The world seems like one giant shitty joke sometimes.

Bitch I lived with her for so many years now, and just because you met her once you want to tell me that I shouldn't talk about her like that? (basically saying that everything I say abouy her is a lie)
She did so many fucked up things I'm not gonna forgive her for those if she is still abusing me emotionally.
I wish I could move out. But evertime she is pissed, for whatever reason mostly just from work so she needs a punching bag, she abuses the fact that I still depend on her money because of me studying.
Despite the fact that she HAS to pay me a certain amout, she always tells me that I have to sue her to get that money. Like I even have this money.

Today I had that Friday feeling and took my time getting ready, I actually feel like myself for once and wasn't even hating the idea of work but four men have told me to smile for no reason and another walked up and told me I looked like I had a cold and then walked away again seemingly offended when I asked why he was telling me that. None of this was mid conversation or even friends, just random guys who work in the same huge company that half walked past.
I know that I'm just extra sensitive to it because I'm hormonal right now, but this never happens so much when I don't put in the effort with makeup so it feels really obviously like some kind of negging thing even though guys always say things like "I tell everyone to smile! It's a nice thing not a sexist thing!".

And then a random guy who had been a nice adjusted human in a stream yesterday sent me an instagram message this morning and then complained that I was "hardly replying" and "replied late" so now I'm stuck trying to compose replies that are polite enough that they can't come back to haunt me, but firm enough that he knows I don't need to take that shit from a stranger.

I barely talk, when I do I speak one word sentences, I avoid asking questions, speaking or talking when I don't need to so I don't have to get into detail, everything annoys me
I avoid going to crowded places, will show up somewhere, see if it has a lot people and leave if it does even if it took me a while to get there
when driving, I avoid driving at the same speed as cars next to me so they don't look at me through my window
at work when I was a cashier, some of the most stressful moments were thanks to people who didn't want to buy their shit and get out, I felt an odd form of secondhand embarrassment everytime someone would come up to me and ask something like "does this come in a 34C"
I avoided job interviews, canceled on my friends, etc just because I was too embarrassed to ask my parents
it's ruining my life and makes socialization so fucking stressful to the point where I feel secondhand embarrassment for people who talk, I'd kill to be one of those cute bubbly chatterboxes but why do I feel so god awful embarrassed by socialization ?

once at work, I was at the cash register and this old man stands next to my register and just starts staring me down and winking at me until my manager told him to leave
I CANNOT FUCKING GO ANYWHERE WITHOUT BEING STARED AT holy shit it's driving me through the roof, I can think of more than 30 encounters in the past year or so where I got stared the fuck down, and it was obvious because I saw their eye movements and their head turning in every direction I was going
I want to live in peace I just want to be fucking invisible and go to the mall or go get coffee and pizza with friends or places I like without getting stared the fuck down
I just don't get it, I don't fucking get it
is this good or bad?

I literally just left a craft store without buying anything because two men kept following me around and staring at me, every aisle I went down one would show up in, the other one just stood at the end of an aisle and stared down it as I was looking at stuff to buy, this went on since I drove into the parking lot and one of the men kept staring down my car and suddenly they kept appearing everywhere for about an hour when I was shopping

This past week was just awful for me. I had so many shitty things happen and all around felt like crap, I was really looking forward to my hair appointment today but that turned out to just ruin my week more. I had made an appointment at this high end hair salon since I hadn’t been to a hair stylist in forever and wanted to go blonde for a while now so I finally bit the bullet and did it. Get there today around 2 and off the bat start hating the place. The hairstylist insults my hair color repeatedly saying how crazy I was for using box dye for such a color. She tells me she’s going to have to remove the dye to then be able to bleach it. Says it’s going to be around 250. I’m pretty mad cause on the website it said 100+ for what I wanted and on the phone she had told me 160 exactly. Really want to fix my hair so go through with it anyways. My hair turns out worse than how it was before. I realize this when they’re done. Through the whole process they were assuring me that I was seeing things and that when they blow dried it it would look totally different and blonde. My hair is now 4 different colors: black, orange/red, dark blonde and brown. It looks awful, right when I got out of there and into my car I started crying. Practically wasted an entire paycheck on this just to end up buying box dye to dye my hair myself. Why are hairstylists so incompetent? I have bangs and my bangs are completely black and don’t even fit in with the hair. Hopefully I can fix this, but sadly I can’t get my money back. I wish I wasn’t such a pushover so I could’ve gotten out of paying that much.

hairstylists operate under the assumption that your hair isn't box dyed. box dye is much harder to work with, it's more time consuming and is harder on the hair to get rid of.

they aren't trying to scam you. BUT if they dont think they can work wiht it they should tell you

sorry about your hair anon. maybe this should be a lesson in box dying though? like you shouldnt have just gone and done it again? you could have waited a couple weeks and gone back (or do a different salon) to get it to where you wanted, that would have been better for your hair in the long run.

A lot of people will say that being tall helps you look thin even if you're a bit heavier, but he truth is that it just makes you feel like a monster. Being taller and heavier/as heavy as man feels like shit and people are intimidated by you and also treat yout that way…

I have trouble trusting people and opening myself up to them, and it gets really bad at the beginning of every relationship because I just assume every guy is a two-timing Chad until I'm proven wrong. They don't know I do it or anything, but I verify each statement that comes out of their mouths to make sure that they're not bullshitting me. Despite this, I think there's lots of guys who are really nice and kind and all my exes were lovely, but at the beginning I get super suspicious and it's exhausting.
I used to be in an LDR for some months and barely got through it, but after we moved in together it was a really happy relationship of 5 years that only ended because of some circumstances.
Now I'm in another LDR and my bf and I see each other every weekend, he talks to me often, everything he says checks out but he takes ages to reply sometimes and doesn't seem as crazy about me as my previous bf (but is still very obviously interested). On top of that he's starting college in another city and it's very likely that he'll just sleep with someone there or dump me for some classmate or whatever since they'll spend more time together. More so because he's not the most social of people which ime usually translates to jumping at any chance to get pussy he can get with no regard for his existing relationship.
Things just aren't looking well in my head but at the same time I know I'm a paranoid doomsayer. I don't do anything rash except let it eat at me until I see him again. I wish I could get a stable bf but I move around a lot for my education and am not the most social of people to begin with so it's pretty much exclusively LDRs for me.

I don't know what to do, I just wish I could stop worrying and have what other couples have for once.

I'm on the smaller side(162cm tall and 53kg) yet I wouldn't feel threatened by a tall girl.
In fact, it makes my kokoro go doki doki, I think they're beautiful and I hope my future girlfriend will be taller than me (i think height difference is very cute).
I've seen many tall girls that are very feminine,and even cute! I know of two 180cm girls and they're pretty (one of them is kinda chub).

It's hard to do a hidden camera because it's just a small terraced house and there isn't really a good place to hide it. I did buy security lights for the backyard and they were sprayed with paint within a few days. Spending money on cameras is a really good idea but I feel like the person would just cover their face and destroy whatever it is I bought. I can barely bring myself to get things fixed anymore because they just get broken again and I don't know if I can afford to buy something like a good camera system. My neighbour offered me his outdoor camera thing which was really lovely of him but it didn't pick much up and I think it was pretty expensive so I'm scared I'll invest in something that will get wrecked and not even get any footage or photos.

afaik, I'm the only one that it happens to regularly. One of my neighbours had one of the panes in her door broken but the police think that's because she came out to investigate a weird noise or something. Somebody else had their car stolen but it's assumed that's unrelated because it doesn't match up with the other things.

I asked around because I thought maybe it was a case of mistaken identity and the previous owner had made enemies but my neighbours told me the previous owners were an elderly couple and the house was sold so they could move somewhere more suited to their needs.

Everybody that lives around me knows it's happening and they're all being really good about it and offering help wherever they can, but most of them have jobs and busy lives so there are times when it's practically dead and there's nobody around to see. If anything happens during working hours or in the middle of the night, there's pretty much nothing for me to tell the police. They've noticed a few things, like somebody lurking with a hood up or groups of teens, but the police can't pinpoint the culprit that way.

Honestly even I've never been able to find anything out and I've stayed awake a few nights just waiting for something to happen. The incidents are never focused on one thing and it's hard to keep track of the whole house and move fast enough to see who is responsible.

Honestly the more I think about it the more I think it's just because they're new, and are less familiar with the faces of the neighborhood.

my mom goes completely manic at times. there's just times when she's normal, the next day i try to have a conversation with her and she brushes me off, blasts music/tv too loudly, won't sit still and starts yelling and cheering at random dumb shit. she's never been diagnosed with any mental illness, so i don't know if this is old person behavior beginning or what. i once was having a mental breakdown in my room while she was watching a baseball game and she was screaming as loud as she could at the screen over every little moment. it was making my breakdown worse so i went to tell her to please not scream like that and that i was feeling very stressed out. she pretty much tells me to fuck off and that i'm a "fun killer". she never used to do this kind of shit before so i dunno maybe its oncoming dementia or some shit. she's currently acting like this now and i don't know how to tell her to calm down without being seen as some kind of evil villain for telling her to turn her fucking tv down.

I apologize for the length of my vent but I just want to scream. Today I bought my boyfriend lunch and then came home. I didn't get myself anything because I was going to go eat with my sister in a bit. We went and ate and I came home. My boyfriend was on the computer with his friends and had drank the rest of my wine I had in the fridge when I got home so I decided to clean our room and fold all the laundry we had lying around. It took me about an hour (our room is a mess) and then he asked if I'd go get him food because I needed to go get garbage bags. So instead of waiting until tomorrow after work to go shopping, I left around 8 and got him sushi like he asked and something for myself. I was driving his car and noticed he had low gas so I put in a few bucks to at least get him off E. I drove home and gave him the food and he told me he didn't want one with veggies (he told me this before, but idk sushi and I thought I picked out one that would work) he took a bite, told me it tasted like shit, and then threw the whole thing away. I apologized and said I'd go run and grab him something else but he said no and that he'd just eat tomorrow. Not 5 minutes later he gets up and puts on some clothes to go get something else. I offer him money and he refuses to take it and storms out. When he comes home I just ignore him. He goes to bed instead of staying up to play a game with me like we had planned earlier, and slammed the bedroom door. I said "sorry I ruined your whole night?" and he just replied with "I just wish you'd listen."

My dad has been in and out of the hospital since the start of the year. After April, things started looking up for his health. They cut the cancer out of his bladder (he is still fighting skin cancer) and the future looked bright for him.

I just got a call from my mom. My dad spent the weekend in the ER due to extremely low BP and a possible GI bleed. Mom thought it was his heart. Doctor said yesterday he had a hiatal hernia. Did scans, tests…

He has stage 4 cancer. The doctor said it's everywhere–in his blood, his organs, his spine… There is a tumor putting pressure on his spine so he's in a wheelchair because it hurts him too much to walk.

They sent him home with only 3 months to live.

I don't even know how to cope. I had plans to visit next summer. I live halfway across the country. They were planning on moving up here with me to retire. I was helping them look for houses and finding places to show them when they drove up to visit me in a few months.

I haven't seen my dad since i moved out last year. The next time I go down to see them will be the last time I will ever see my him. It won't be to visit him. It's going to be a goodbye. I can't wrap my head around that at all.

There is nothing that could have prepared me for this. I knew it was coming. I mean, it happens to everyone. But I didn't know it was going to be this soon. I thought there was still time…

On what I thought was going to be a relaxing day off, I had to drive her all over the place because she doesn't have a car. It involved making trips between people for certain keys to things, almost getting pressured into driving a Jeep of someone I didn't even know during rush hour traffic, and going to her storage unit. One time I had to turn around and get her after she asked to be dropped off somewhere.
She was really apologetic but I was still kind of annoyed. I want to be a helpful friend, but at the same time I'm a person that needs a lot of alone time in order to socially recharge.
I just spent the whole weekend with her for the wedding stuff, but now her asking to be here until november feels stifling. I just wanted to get high and watch cartoons on my days off, now it's awkward because now there's a person with different tastes than me occupying the living room/kitchen area. I have to go buy a clothing rack because there's no place to hang her clothes even.
I'm also terrified of having friends as roommates because I know things can sour in living situations. She claims she has a place to go by november, and I hope that doesn't change.

I'm in a LTR with the best guy ever. I don't have oneitus but even after several years I still smile when I hear his dumb jokes, I still find him cute when he sleeps and I couldn't imagine a better partner. I can't imagine not wanting him in my life. Despite all that, I prefer open relationships and the option of casual encounters. Every few months I sit down and talk about how I love him and he is satisfying, but that I want to explore more sexual experiences whilst I'm still a young adult but unfortunately to him anything like that is an infidelity, even if he's included nd then I forget about it for another few months. Everything is perfect except for this one disagreement between us, we don't fight about it but we're at an impasse. We've talked honestly about it so much that there's nothing left to go over, it's just a mexican standoff on whether I will give in and forever be monogamous, or whether I will have to break it off because I want something he won't let me have and I would never pressure him into or lie about. My friends are bored of hearing about it, I'm fed up of reminding him that we're so different in this one tiny way that shouldn't matter and it just feels like I'm living with the weight of a decisions I haven't even made.

Why? Because crazy stories your girlfriends tell you? Or what you think you're supposed to have done? If you think you might be gay, that's one thing to sit down and think about. If you want to bang a lot of people for the heck of it, do him a favor and leave him. If you really feel like this:
