This is a /g/ thread.

This is an /ot/ thread because of the nature of the discourse.

It's worth discussing in person seriously. I had a similar insecurity thing and my boyfriend has agreed to cut out porn 100% even though he didn't do it that often. It's important to just lay your boundaries.

Best of luck anon

No. 505130

Other anons will have better advice, but I think it's perfectly reasonable to be uncomfortable that your bf texts his ex gf regularly. Sure, it's been months, but she did dump him.

If he brought it up and seemed open about it, ask if he will pull back a bit from their relationship/social media conversations. I think that if you want to stay friends with your ex, you have to expect you can't be that close anymore.

I'm not sure what to else to say about following her on twitter/insta because people can use those differently (like frequently post more personal things, or just nice pictures from weddings, etc.). Are you three in the same friend group or see each other irl regularly?

Anyways, hope your bf is understanding and you guys work it out!

No. 505149

yeah that is something to mention as well, she is friends with some people in the friend group but in more of an acquaintance/social media friend if that makes sense, she isn't at any of the outings that they do and i've never met her.

thank you both for the advice, i think i'll bring it up again and talk about it so i can come to a resolution. i appreciate you guys

isn't he still famous? and he's known only for his music, I think (and music for movies that he made).

Anons, what are other industrial/goth bands with infamous lead singers/characters? The band might still be going without the guy in question or have broken up.

I think of Skinny Puppy but that's cause I don't know that many industrial bands. Need to google lol.

i made a fake instagram to creep on my boyfriend's ex gf because he unblocked her a while ago and am torn between getting a sense of satisfaction from feeling prettier than her (yes i know this is mean)
and being upset that they're still on good terms and he watches her stories and likes some of her photos. i would say the sadness outweighs any potential confidence boost i get so i'm trying to stop being creepy.

No. 505161

not to give a stereotypical lolcow response but personally I'd be suspicious of him still talking to her like that, especially if she was the one who broke it off. my ex boyfriend was friends with virtually all of his exes (even the one he said was "crazy") and it turned out after we broke up he was basically keeping them around to flirt with them just in case he might get laid by one of them again and was cheating on me with a female friend who wasn't even an ex. I'm definitely not saying dump him or anything, just keep an eye out

No. 505164

i appreciate this response, i had something similar happen in the past which is why i got worried in the first place honestly. i posted about this on another board mentioning that it makes me feel uncomfortable that they talk even though i feel like i trust him. i decided i'll talk to him about it to alleviate my anxiety and hopefully resolve it. thanks for being realistic with me anon

True, but regarding

>if you dislike someone maybe don't be friends with them in the first place

How can I dislike someone I don't know? I met them, got to know them better, they maybe considered me a friend, then I realised the more I got to know them the more I didn't like them as people. It happens.

No. 505142

Why do they need an explanation? Most of them probably don't care, it'll just feel like they're being condescending. Better to just say nothing at all, they we just people you grew up around.

No. 505151

>I never had any 'true' friendships and always kind of dislike everyone
i relate to this post a little bit too much

No. 505152

Yeah that's a valid point I guess.

Because imagine thinking you're friends with someone and one day they just block you out of nowhere with no explanation.

No. 505158

I didn't block, I just abandoned all social media and haven't talked to anyone since hs

My dads a teacher so I know a little bit about it. After school hours, he always grades 6-9 pm every week night. He gets summers off, xmas break and March break so it seems very chill, plus day holidays like labour day, family day, thanksgiving etc. In Canada, you can make ~$100,000 a year after 10-15 years of teaching, with a starting salary of $40,000-$50,000 depending on the subject and grade level (High school makes more). Plus you get benefits like massages, braces, dental care, chiropractor bone cracking sessions, glasses, and dieticians/nutritionists. It seems like a good deal here in Canada hence why I’m interested in it. But then again, it’s stressful and teachers always go on strike.

How much time does he spend over the summer planning for the next year?

No. 505101

anon whens the last time youve been to school in canada??? the numbers sound great when considering teaching but i really think you should wait a bit. most highschool teachers dont have their contract set in stone, they get reviewed every semester, and then get redistributed to whatever programmed needs a functioning teacher (whether you know what youre teaching or not). on top of that over 50% of highschool teachers find themselves working second, even third jobs. elementary school teachers have the same problem but just not as common. the norm now is for teachers to start as on call substitute, and then phase in a few years later during periods of review when other teachers get kicked out. teachers are striking because of cuts, they pay for school supplies out of pocket and cuts mean they only pay more. i want to encourage you to follow your goals of being a teacher, but becoming a teacher now is 300 times harder than its ever been, made worse by having too many actively liscened teachers who wanted the good looking pay and bennies too.

Oh geez that sounds horrible. I guess I’ll just be a government worker. They have the same pay/benefits, though I worked at a tech company and they’re more fun. Unfortunately I didn’t major in computer science/programming but history so my options are really limited. I’m thinking of doing another degree in accounting to write the CPA and get better job options

So happy for good ol' Dave. Wishing him the best for the tour. I would go but they only an support act and I'm not interested to see FFDP.

BTW James is officially confirmed to be out of rehab. People already speculated when he deleted his personal Inst page but at the end of the month he will planned to appear at his old timer show. Wonder how his overall appearance will be like.

>Aw why did he deleted his Instagram page?

People wondered it too and some said that it has maybe to do with the fact that they tell in rehab to deleted your social media pages in order to not go online and brag about your success of being sober? I think it was deleted in somewhat in november. I mean he barely used it anyways, he stated a few times that its wastes too much time for him but yeah liked to check on his random posts as well. Maybe he we re-active it at some point idk.
