Is it true having a handsome boyfriend is a terrible experience? I’ve been told you’re constantly dealing with other girls flirting with him, giving you shit, trying to start fights with you, etc. even if he doesn’t have a flirty personaloty himself.

I have a winter coat which I was wearing with my black leather backpack and consequently, it left black stains at the armpit area from rubbing against it all the time. I washed my coat with the washing machine and applied bile soap on the affected areas but none of these helped.
What can I use to remove these stains? Or should I just bring the coat to a professional cleaner?

Why does my cat want to eat my vine charcoal so badly?

No. 1097132

I didn't think so but then it depends on the circles you spend time in. One of my exes was really hot but he didn't use much social media, had a small circle of primarily male friends and we weren't big partiers. Female strangers occassionally flirted with him around me but it was through subtle, forgivable things (laughing more than necessary, fixing their hair, stealing glances). He'd occasionally get approached more brazenly at his work since he had a client-facing job but he'd tell me about it and we'd just joke about it together. He'd gently deflect or do a total shutdown if needed. Every time I hear about a woman feeling she needs to run security on her boyfriend it's usually because he's a social media addict who enjoys the attention, has poor boundaries, or enjoys triangulating women. Usually some combination of the three.

Is sublimation the only good one?

No. 1097137

I don't see how it is projecting, what exactly am I projecting? Like, I realize it is in me and I accept it but for someone else I have a lot of hate to give when they have the same personality or traits that I do. What am I defending against? I'm sorry if I sound stupid.
For example, I unnaturally have a lot of hate for people who are selfpitying, while I am selfpitying myself.

NTAYRT, but. Well, do you hold yourself above the standards you expect from others? Is it the self pitying you hate? Do you hate it when you pity yourself, or only when others do it?

No. 1097144

No, the table I posted doesn't cover all of them. On Wikipedia they list the following ones considered as mature defense mechanisms:

>Level 4: mature

These are commonly found among emotionally healthy adults and are considered mature, even though many have their origins in an immature stage of development. They are conscious processes, adapted through the years in order to optimise success in human society and relationships. The use of these defences enhances pleasure and feelings of control. These defences help to integrate conflicting emotions and thoughts, whilst still remaining effective. >Those who use these mechanisms are usually considered virtuous.[26] Mature defences include:

>Altruism: Constructive service to others that brings pleasure and personal satisfaction

>Anticipation: Realistic planning for future discomfort
>Humour: Overt expression of ideas and feelings (especially those that are unpleasant to focus on or too terrible to talk about directly) that gives pleasure to others. The thoughts retain a portion of their innate distress, but they are "skirted around" by witticism, for example, self-deprecation.
>Sublimation: Transformation of unhelpful emotions or instincts into healthy actions, behaviours, or emotions; for example, playing a heavy contact sport such as football or rugby can transform aggression into a game[29]
>Suppression: The conscious decision to delay paying attention to a thought, emotion, or need in order to cope with the present reality; making it possible later to access uncomfortable or distressing emotions whilst accepting them

Sorry I misunderstood you. Yes, since you're conscious of it, it cannot be projection, I guess it's just…plain old dislike/hate then? But tbh the fact that seeing that undesired quality in someone else conjures up such strong emotions, it suggests to me that you haven't fully accepted it within yourself? Because if you did, it would't bother you as much I think, and you could also feel empathy for that person. I guess the healthy thing to do would be to just work on it to overcome it

My bf is decently good looking (mid 30s but has good skin/looks a little younger) and works somewhere he is interacting with older women who flirt/dote on him regularly and in this context I honestly don't mind.

>and you could also feel empathy for that person.
This is a good point anon, it feels more that I don't even try to understand the other person. Just directly onto hate. You may be right it's probably I've not accepted it in myself which is why I hate when I'm… confronted with it?
Also thank you for the other part of your post, very interesting.
I'm not good at all with introspecting. But I think it is the selfpitying in this case that I hate, and how someone expresses it. I keep it all in, and if someone vocalizes their selfpitying, even if their thoughts are exactly the same as mine, it makes me hate them. This is actually a pattern with other things as well. Kind of makes sense with the confronting my own bad traits. Very fascinating… much to think about. Thank you a lot.

Why do men get so butthurt when a woman has a type in men that deviates from what they think women should want? I've seen so many men get mad when a woman has a preference they don't approve of, like liking pretty boys or not liking roided out physiques for instance. When a woman says something like that men just have to chime in with how said woman is wrong and how all women ackshually like muscular chads and any woman who says otherwise is a liar or some stupid shit like "you'll grow out of it". Why are men like this? I've never seen women throwing a fit like this over men's preferences like this, yet it's common for men to try to gatekeep what women are attracted to.

No. 1097178

Because they want to be victims

No. 1097191

Men live lives of fantasy and believe there’s a way to be effortlessly irresistible to everyone. “Chad” represents the delusion that there is a female kryptonite and the only thing preventing them from fucking a bucket of women is lack of muscles. It also reinforces their evopsyche bullshit and aids their victim complexes. If women like a variety of things, then his actual personhood becomes the reason his dreams are dreams. Likewise, women specifically not reacting to the male power fantasy suggests the rest of their alpha cope is wrong. This also works inversely, where a lot of men already believe women secretly want them, so they work to convince themselves everyone who isn’t interested is just a suspiciously large group of endless minority outliers.

Is it possible to stay the same weight but have a slimmer body?

I have gained a bit of a weight and everyone's complimenting on how great it looks on my face (and I agree, it has now the fullness that it didn't have before) but I hate the way it looks on my bod.

No. 1097223

Yes, absolutely.

No. 1097230

Men get mad when they don't fit a woman's preferences, even if she likes traditionally masculine men because they think all women secretly want to fuck them.

Would it be a stupid idea to try and buy an apartment after I move out instead of renting? I do live in one of the most expensive cities in the world, but I was looking at housing for fun and there does exist a small number of apartments within a doable price range for me (150k-200k). Some of them, with the mortage and maintenance fees combined, end up being around the cost of rent in my city, if not cheaper. I barely have enough for a down payment so it's not feasible right now, plus they were scarce and only a few in decent neighborhoods, but in the future, why not? Do any nonas own homes? What fees can I expect to pay on top of maintenance and mortgage?

I found a 1br for 150k in the heart of my city, good square footage, not run down as fuck, within walking distance to where I work and it would've been so doable for me but… there's like no supermarkets in the area or they're all crazy expensive since it's smack in the middle so kek fuck.

Is inline skating very hard

No. 1097707

I picked it up a few months ago and I think it can be, but it's possible to learn! Always keep your knees bent and buy elbow/knee/wrist pads and a helmet to prevent serious injury/allow you to skate while feeling at least a little more protected. I learned as a kid so it might be my muscle memory kicking in after 20+ years, but I don't think learning basic striding is very hard. I still have trouble stopping though. Lots of resources on the internet/youtube, skatefresh asha has many popular tutorials! My only word is advice is to make sure your ankles don't bend inward, it's tempting because it makes you feel safer but it's bad for you in the long run.

I hope you'll pick up inline skating nonna! I still suck at it but I can't fully express how much joy it brings me to just skate in circles at my local park.

I used depilation cream for the first time in my life today, and stupidly didn't consider how paranoid I get about non-mechanical(??? is that the correct word) methods of grooming. It says to rinse well with cold water in the end. How good is well? Is water enough? Should I use soap afterwards again? Can I do it with my bare hand or should I use a sponge? If I can't smell the cream anymore, and the few hairs left aren't brittling off anymore, can I assume I got it off completely? Do I have to worry about the water that runs from my arm pits down to my cooch? Can I use my hands normally again or should I clean them thoroughly again, as the package says to not ingest anything?

I don't know the details of how depilation creams work but it has something to do with changing the pH of the hair.

I don't see why not, I had two internships in college and both of them led to solid job opportunities, one of which I took and worked with for several years. I would just be clear with this institution that you're looking to transition into a paid position if everything goes well and ask if there's real potential for that. Typically they love hiring people who have proven themselves, and why not? Also if they give you something part-time you may be able to hold onto it while applying/going to college as well and they might give you some nice grants for not making a lot of cash (depends on your location of course)

I don't think your sister is a pedo though she is dating a manchild. Since she's into 'manly' men, it sounds like maybe she's subscribed to more traditional beliefs of what the masculine ideal is, which is often synonymous with toxic traits. Not surprising though, if she wants to be a tradwife. I don't think there's really much you can do to help her since she's gotta learn herself how that shit actually isn't attractive… or maybe she's happy in her current relationship even if he's awful.

that doesn't mean what you think and it also is a theory not a fact. the studies only theorize that development stalls at age 25 and that the most used areas of your brain shift at that age. much of the studies suggest it's linked to things like why adults have a harder time learning certain things such as language, than children, not mental maturity.

Guys, it's just very old Coca Cola marketing that was so effective it became an old wives tale.

you have to start actually imagining yourself with someone when you masturbate. focus on YOUR fantasies, the acts that you like to give and receive, imagine someone you actually know and are attracted to. it's way more intimate this way. it's probably gonna be hard/awkward to do it the first few times because you're so used to just getting your brain stimulated by countless videos. but it's gonna help you quit porn and you'll feel more confident in the long run

Cute can mean different things. You can acknowledge that someone is conventionally attractive regardless of their age, but if you feel personally attracted to them then that is different, and yes it is weird/creepy. Knowing that they are a teenager should be an automatic "ew, no". Someone can also be cute in an adorable way (babies are cute, it's not creepy to say that) so it just depends on what you mean by "cute".

Ehh I feel like most people who go from smoking to vaping are just switching one addiction for another. For irregular smokers - just don’t start to vape, it’s actually easier to get addicted to do it, but if you’re a pack a day smoker then it might be worth to try. The prices depend on where you live. In my country it’s way more expensive to vape than to smoke because for some dumb reason vapes and e-juices are more regulated here. But if you’re from a country where a single pack of cigs costs like $10+ then vaping might actually save you money.

i feel like vaping started as a way to quit smoking and now it’s become an alternative. i used to smoke but i vape now because i can do it basically anywhere, and i don’t really intend to quit. i think vaping could be affordable as long as you buy a refillable vape, not the disposables. i spend way more money on juul pods than i did on cigarettes. when i bought vape juice instead of just replacing the pod whenever i ran out i used the smok novo. smok products in general are mostly inexpensive, probs like $16-$30, and work well. you do have to replace the pod occasionally whenever the cotton burns and they’re around $5 iirc. some website says that one 30ml bottle of vape juice is equal to 2.5 cartons of cigarettes, and most 30ml bottles don’t cost more than $25.

Women who cry on your shoulder about sexual coercion the moment they break up.. after pretending shit was just perfect up until then. Messy people.

Are there any woodfags here? I’m gonna build a keyboard tray for my desk and am wondering what the minimum thickness I can get away with is. It’s currently a drawer like picrel but having the drawer there makes the desktop too high for my arms to comfortably work all day. I took it out and replaced the drawer with an inch-thick piece of plywood and it works awesome. Only issue is that there’s just a little bit less hand space in there than I want, so thinner wood would be better for a real tray. Don’t want to break something if I’m using the tray extended, though.

If you get hallucinations from smoking weed does that mean you're schizo and should avoid it?
Powerful question with powerful post number. I think ugly is not a face shape, but a place in society. The idea of objective beauty is a meme sold by plastic surgeons and Cosmetics companies. But subjective beauty can be almost perfectly overlaid with social caste judgements. Beauty is a shorthand for health, wealth and social power. That's why rich beautiful people get unnecessary surgeries just to prove they can afford to look like an alien (see: Hadids).
>how do I know I'm ugly
You don't know, you decide. Faces actually have very little to do with it. Good health, grooming, hair, clothes, posture, and attitude will make 99% of people think you're attractive, and the other 1% are trying to sell you something.

I usually smoke equivalent of 1 joint, because I use a vape it's easy to have a bit too much. Maybe 1 in 5 times I smoke, this happens. This time I thought I hadn't pulled anything in the first inhale so I had another, so twice as much as usual, so it was more intense.
I was on the couch and felt like I was lucid dreaming, I could make my body float on clouds, turn myself into a cartoon or see through multiple universes where I was living different lives. My boyfriend was with me and I said ask me anything, he asked me my name, I hesitated and said that's a a trick question. Which worries me because I genuinely couldn't access that information, I didn't realize I was that far gone. I was still functional though, could get up and get myself something from the kitchen etc, so not like I felt paralyzed or anything.
It was perfectly pleasant to be honest, and it's happened often enough that I'm not confused or scared by it. But I know it's a slippery slope because I'm a very anxious person and this is the only way to truly take a holiday from my internal monologue. I used to smoke once in a blue moon but now it's every day, so my tolerance is building and I get these hallucination spells more often as I try to find the right dose to feel high.

On the other hand, I cannot be a right winger either because they promote sick shit for women and are inherently capitalistic. Fuck America.

I was school-acquaintances with one in high school. ie, we were in a drafting class together but the teacher was incompetent so we spent a lot of the time just playing multiplayer video games. He thought he was super clever though really he was mediocre at best, always asking me for help on our work. He knew I was religious and would frequently ask me questions about my beliefs, then would make a smug smirk hearing my answer.
We were also in a mythology class together—it was well known as the best class at the school and focused on classical and Norse mythology. At the beginning of the class we all had to sign (along with our parents) a disclosure document essentially saying we understand that religion and religious texts will be frequently discussed and read in the class. Anyway, later in the year we get to Norse mythology, and by the time Norse myths were written down they contained themes from Christianity. For instance, Odin’s favorite son Baldr was killed unjustly, but they take comfort in the fact that he will come back to life and return at the end of the world to rule over it peacefully. So naturally as we read all this stuff we’re not just looking at the Edda but bits from the Bible too. This dude comes up to me in our other class and tells me how furious he is that we’re looking at the Bible in class, how he’s gonna tell his parents and get the teacher fired, etc. I had to remind him that he was essentially in a religion class and that if he’d read the disclosure doc he’d know that it very clearly said, “AT TIMES THE BIBLE AND OTHER RELIGIOUS TEXTS WILL BE REFERENCED IN THIS CLASS. DON’T TAKE THE CLASS IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.” He kind of mumbled his grievances but shut up after that.
Once in our drafting class he asked me if Jesus Christ is considered a myth. I told him that based on the definition we used in our mythology class (where essentially, myths are stories that are foundational to or based in human religion), yes. He did this big chortle and had a smug look on his face for the next ten minutes.
Towards the end of the year (this was senior year) I asked him where he’d applied to go to college. He said he didn’t apply to anywhere. This was well past submission deadlines; colleges had already sent out acceptance letters. I was a bit aghast at this and asked him what his plans were for after school. He said, “I dunno, I might go to [community college] or something.”
For maybe a year after graduating he’d occasionally send me emails asking questions about Minecraft mechanics or mods he couldn’t figure out. I’d answer them, and eventually those fizzled out too. No idea where he is now.

I hope you guys are ready for the stupidest question that may have ever been posted here (I get to it at the bottom)

2.7% of whites in the bone marrow donor registry, despite being 63% of population. By comparison

3.9% of native americans in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 2% of the population

1.1% of native hawaiians in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 0.15% of the population

3.9% of asians in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 5% of the population

1.6% of blacks in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 12.3% of the population

and 1.6% of hispanics in the bone marrow donor registry despite being 17% of the population.

These numbers have increased since 2012 and somehow there's still "not enough minority" marrow to go around so much so that they keep urging non-whites to donate to this day? It would make sense if european-americans where the LEAST likely to need a bone marrow transplant, but they actually are the most likely to need it.

What's more, 0.4% of french people are registered, similar population size to that of black and hispanics in 2012, and yet it is the country that has the HIGHEST successful bone marrow transplants. The narrative here is that blacks/hispanics and other minorities don't have as much people in the registry as white people hence the lower rate of finding matches. But, if having as much people in the registry as possible has an effect on how likely it is you find a donor as is implied, then how do the french manage to have such high rate of matches despite it? If it doesn't, then why is there a need for practically all minorities to be on the registry to be able to increase the likelihood they find a match?

This is without getting into the fact that 30% of people needing a bone marrow transplant will find a match through a relative. of the people needing unrelated marrow, I could not find a break down for each race or who needs it the most anywhere, only that 35%(1,900) of hispanics will need it. That is 0.2% of 860,000 donors. Most likely less now.

What am I missing here?

I used pic rel and referenced population at the time to get my percentages.

I also liked the main character and her friends, they are just normal kids doing dumb kid’s shit and being cringy, I seriously related to the girl with the pink overalls, I was as retarded and loud as her.
At first I thought the anime reactions would only happen a few times, and thought it was okay, but seeing them over and over again was awkward.
I feel like they really went for the nostalgia trip with the notebook doodles, I felt that because I’ve done that with friends and it was kind of cute to see something like that in a movie.

does being a (good) artist make people want to be your friend?

No. 1101795

In my experience no. It might make you more interesting at first, but in the end it's about your personality. Non-artists oftentimes don't care anyway, a lot of people can't tell good from bad when it comes to art. Not even being an artist and popular online will make people want to approach you, followers don't care about the person making the pieces. Why are you asking though? Are you considering getting into art to find friends?

No. 1101803

Yes, but very rarely will it be genuine or someone you can actually connect with, more than anything it's just annoying to be honest, but that's because (unfortunately) some of the stuff I draw appeals to egirls and animecore emo zoomers or whatever. Normies I've met don't give a fuck, though, so this is mostly online and if your art appeals to a younger/weeby audience, I think.

No. 1101814

because i can draw but can barely socialize. i make people laugh and validate them and i am genuinely interested in them, which i read are good things for a friendship. but i feel insecure that the social awkwardness puts them off. people want some sort of social status from one another to appreciate the bond? so me showing an actual skill that they could potentially brag with or receive as gifts could outweigh my awkwardness

AYRT (>>1101803) and oh nonnie, I want to give you a hug. You don't have to have a skill they can brag about or gifts or social status(?) to make friends, if anything I'd reckon the friends you may make in this manner are shallow at best and will likely not stick around. Do you want/have any art friends? Making people laugh and validating them works, but it would be even better if you had a genuine common interest (like art) that you could talk and share about. Could you possibly make art friends by taking classes or joining hobby groups and meeting them online? It seems unlikely but I've made some new connections this way, not good friends persay but people I can have conversations with without awkwardness (and I'm usually retardedly awkward too) because we are passionate about the same subjects.

how did game development shift so heavily male ? from what I've researched during the early history of game development, women played a more proportionate role in the industry, it was only the Japanese Industry that was 99% male
In fact one could argue that women have influenced video games more than men. Jane Jensen, Roberta Williams, Kim Swift, Corrinne Yu, Carol Shaw, Jade Raymond, Amy Hennig, I mean Roberta Williams single handedly(with some help from her husband) revolutionized and created a new genre of gaming while she was a housewife

No. 1102054

I wish I could give a better response nonnie but I feel like it has something to do that most men"s first crushes are (usually over sexualized) women, then they get into making games, they start sexualizing women characters, women feel uncomfortable and feel unable to joine the gate-keeped community of moids, cycle continues.
Look at Nier or Bayonetta, they're designed to appeal to men.

I also would go to video game tournaments (ssbm) and a lot of the same men were in tech or game revs who would hit on me as a (known fact) I was 14/15. I hate to derail but I think many men in those fields just ward off women one way or another, the normal ones were always the creepiest 1:1.

How do you escape from assumptions people make about you?

I have attention problems and sometimes I have to be told something several times and this makes people think I'm profoundly stupid and sometimes they decide that I don't know anything and I have to be explained everything from the very basics.

Example: the accountant at my workplace assumed that I know nothing about taxes for some reason and went on a monologue about how taxes work. I didn't want to be rude and tell her I already know these things so I didn't interrupt her. But I wonder, should I have had?

Or another example is that because I don't talk about my dating life (it just feels…intrusive when people ask about it) people assume I must be lesbian and sometimes they allude to it in a mocking way (like they ask me if I ever go to a certain bar - which is known to be a gay bar - and things like that). It's just super annoying

>what is the job
News researcher.

>how did you get it

Pure dumb luck. I went to school for International Relations, graduated and worked retail because fuck politics. Quit retail because fuck retail too and got a temp job as a receptionist at a news company through a recruiter. Tried to interview for a permanent open position they had at one of the departments but the head of that department didn't want to interview me. My contract ended, worked receptionist at another place, lady back at the news company said "hey X quit, do you want to interview for his position?" I knew almost everyone from every department since I was the receptionist, including my boss's predecessor, but I had never met my boss since he came in after I left. I came in for my interview, and landed the job. My boss told me after I got hired that he had gone around and asked about me… which is terrifying to hear, but thankfully everyone had nothing but good things to say! I consider myself very, very lucky. It can be hectic and I really dread it at times since I don't have the proper background for it, but 95% of the time I'm very happy here.

>how do you travel to it

I take the subway to work. The commute is thankfully super quick and easy from home.

Good luck nona! I hope you will be able to leave neetdom and have a fulfilling life. Even though my job is related to my field, it's not my passion, and that lack of passion helps me keep a healthy work-life balance. It's just a good enough job that suits my needs (good hours, good benefits, relatively laid back because my company is small) but doesn't take away from what makes living enjoyable to me (i.e. everything I do outside of work). Some people live to work, some people work to live. No shame in being one or the other, but I don't like sacrificing my life for work/money kek.

Could it be that you have really low self esteem and assume that the world sees you in the same negative light that you view yourself? Maybe the accountant thought you were an idiot, or maybe she just likes to ramble about her field. I get how it could be seen as patronizing if it's basic stuff you already know, but it's possible that as an accountant she's encountered people, even 'smart'/high ranking ones, who didn't know shit about taxes and she's just used to having to explain it to all sorts of people. When you're already insecure it's easy to take everything as a slight against yourself, but not everyone has negative intentions behind their actions.

Why some women are so obsessed about male height? Looking at the discussion in the vent thread, 170 cm (5'7 I guess?) is completely normal so the ridicule is kinda bizarre. What the difference really does it make if a man is the same height as a woman or even a little shorter? I imagine it's a problem when there's, idk, 50cm difference but that would work both ways, for smaller and taller. Otherwise no idea what purpose tall men serve, looking like a stereotypical straight couple is not that cool or worth pursuing

No. 1102387

Audre Lorde was one critic of the second wave, and a womanist, which is a black led feminist movement. Womanism is even less well known.

I understand doing pick me shit in the past or doing shady stuff if you're in a bad/stresful situation but a handful of them are rich/well off and still willingfully choose to fuck/date shit moids that possess the qualities they criticize in other men or they give their money to sick industries that hurt women or base their identity around mysoginistic stuff although they are AWARE of radfem theory and have enough resources to allign themselves with their beliefs.

Posture is mainly about developing the muscles we didn't use so when slouching so it can feel uncomfortable developing them. My job is standing for hours so I really had to fix my posture because I noticed others would slouch and get stuck like that.
Something that helped me was running in a gym or beside a mirror in your house and actively fixing your posture when you notice you start to lean forward. (I say running because eventually people start to lean forward as they work their muscles)
Another trick is wearing overalls comfortable on the straps when standing straight, but when you slouch it will start to feel tight, forcing you to shoulders down + back
I don't do squats (weights) but I heard that helps, also stretching eases the pain but once you start reminding yourself it gets a lot easier
Also walking in high heels (even just around your house to practice the posture)

My EX lol. I made the mistake of hitting on him and he did start to like me (pathetic yes I know). But he told me that he had never had a crush on anyone, never wanted to have sex, no sexual or romantic feelings before. I think he could've been autistic overall ngl but at some point he thought he was asexual. (Met in highschool). Even now we chat and he still says he doesn't like, lust or want anyone. He admitted to trying to hookup at a party because a girl kept hitting on him but he couldn't get into it or keep it up. He didn't find her attractive or anything at all. Even when we were dating he was not a big kisser (he said lips touching felt weird). His attachment style was avoidant(mines anxious) and he was an ISTP.

Crushless anon here. It was fine when I was a little girl ppl assumed I'd grow out of that phase. But by high school I still never felt attraction to anyone around me. I used to think something was wrong with me when my girlfriends would go after me for not liking a guy they found cute and eventually ppl started saying I was a lesbian (I'm straight). I had alot of male friends and acquaintances and never found interest in any of them no matter how good of dating material they supposedly were. Now I'm in my 30s and I've never been in a relationship and at this point I'm ok with it. I'm happy with my animals and my garden. Hopefully when I'm old I'll be the witchy old neighborhood lady who lives with cats.

i suddenly really want a relationship. i have never been in a real one (only e-dating like ten years ago) but i just want to experience irl love for once. but i also don't feel confident "putting myself out there" (idk how and where and what and huh) because i'm very overweight (30 kilos too much to be precise) and my weight loss has stalled for the past six months because of a lot of irl stress. i also never had a relationship, kissed, held hands, had sex, naturally i never bothered getting any kind of BC either so i would have to find a gyno first too, but i'm also terrified of getting pregnant and from masturbation alone i can say that penetration is boring. i turn 30 in two months. should i even bother? love and sex is such an abstract concept for me at this point and the idea of ever being in a romantic, sexual relationship myself is like imagining myself turning into a bird or something. i just can't comprehend it.

No. 1103885

There were times where I thought I had crushes on some guys but in retrospect I never really found them attractive or wanted to do anything romantic/sexual things, they were just some guys I appreciated and could see myself with, I was probably trying to convince myself to crush on them to feel like a normal person. I don't think it's "normal" like you asked because we are supposed to want to find partners because of biology or whatever, but in the end who cares, it's not harmful.

No. 1103920

Most of them use dating apps I'm afraid… For me it was at work, but I work in male dominated industry. IRL speed dating events are still a thing (at least in my country) so you could look this up, it's definitely very straightforward about the intention; otherwise if you'd be willing, some kind of volunteering activity? Though there it will be most likely female-dominated like your office is, still, a chance to meet genuine, well meaning people.
Ultimately, as I think most of the people, I know some (specifically, two) marriages that started out as tinder dates so it's not impossible to get it through that route but I know I wouldn't want to try it myself, so I understand where you're coming from. Maybe if you warmed up to the idea some anons on dating apps thread in /g/ could help you with maybe how to come up with a description strong enough to discourage people looking for hookups?

I keep seeing that a lot lately and I'm completely baffled, since goblins (and "goblin stealing child" myth) exist in pretty much every european folklore and has nothing to do with Jewish people or antisemitism. I think it was appropriated a bit later and used by some to actually spread anti-semitic messages but I don't think it became synonymous with antisemitism still?

I don't have a lot of experience with procreate but from what I got to try out thanks to my friends who own ipads I think it would be a huge waste of money to buy one (or apple pencil) just for that app. If you haven't tried Illustrator in the last 3 years or so, you really should give it another shot! It became so much more intuitive and easy to use, better with every new version coming out. I wouldn't switch to any other program. And considering how much of a ripoff Adobe is, pirating it is a morally good choice too, so not only you're gonna save a whole lot of money you'd spend on ipad/apple pencil, but also you'll get a better and more versatile.
When it comes to alternatives I've heard very good things about Affinity Designer too but can't say much myself since I haven't tried it yet. But it seems like it's just as good as Illustrator and mostly chosen by people just to steer away from Adobe & because it's license is incomparably cheaper. Overall, good luck!

I’ve tried typing the number of the post as the password and typing different possible passwords, nothing has worked but I’m trying to help I guess.
I also just look for another thread or focus on some different app or just anything else that keeps me busy mentally and visually, sometimes I try to start an infight, post some annoying unpopular opinion or say that Shayna is fucking disgusting or that I hope trannies 41%.
Last time I created a random account to type baits on Reddit and see if they fall for them but since I never log in it’s impossible to get some updoots.
I also like to go on Pinterest and report gendercult posts.
And honestly, gore also makes me feel disgusted, but it’s somehow not that shocking? I try to pretend that the CP pictures are fake, and that the girls got saved and the pedos got murdered. I just want all pedos to die after getting stabbed in the eyes with a rusty, illness ridden needle.

Files that were apparently from Hunter Biden’s laptop. Downloaded a zip, then uploaded them to online software to check for digital manipulation. Turns out most of it was standard stuff like films of him having sex and smoking crack, but two were seriously questionable (but not gory/explicit, so not obviously illegal) images of children. The site reported me to the police for those two images. Seriously stupid amateur sleuth mistake that could have landed me in prison.

That’s pretty scary, anon. I think I saw one of the questionable images posted on Twitter from some random account posting about the Hunter Biden laptop and it’s really stuck in my head. I was hoping it was fake but I don’t know. Any tiny piece of CP gets stuck in my head in a loop and I hate it. Especially as a victim of CSA who knows there’s CP of me out there somewhere, I’m always terrified it’s going to be a picture of me and even typing this out is making me ill What was the police visit like, if you don’t mind me asking? Did they just ask questions?

No. 1104812

I’m so sorry to hear that, anon. Child abusers and people that make/share CP should all be tortured to death.

It was actually terrifying, ngl. Three officers turned up to my house to ascertain who had uploaded the two illegal images and enact an arrest. I only got away with it because a) what sort of child abuser uploads illegal material to a website checking for photoshop, and b) I fully cooperated with the investigation and proved that I (obviously) had no other illegal material hanging around. They told me I was very lucky though, as they didn’t usually care for asking questions prior to making an arrest for that type of offence. Still took 4 months between the report being made by the site and the police coming to my house, though…

Won’t lie, I’m curious too.

I agree with >>1104939 , men accuse women of the manipulative tricks they themselves use because they are unable to empathize and simultaneously terrified of their shortcomings, so they project their own feelings and emotions and methodologies onto women. They can’t understand anything outside of themselves, so all they can do is try to knock women down a peg by trying to make us look equally unstable. Men are highly manipulative, especially because they think women can’t get anything of their own merit, that anything good they gain must be via manipulation, another projection. Men have to manipulate and connive to get what they want, and they hate that about themselves, and they read into a women’s actions deeply because they want her to display those same negative traits so they feel don’t feel inferior.

No. 1105011

On that note, “withholding sex” is a test all women should run if they insist on being with a scrote. Deny him sex for a week or two. Make up a reason about not feeling well or wanting to work some relationship problem out first. They will either chimp out and start abusing you and begging/coercing you or watch a bunch of prom, be passive aggressive and maybe dump you. A lot of women won’t do this under the guise of withholding sex being “abusive” or “mean” but really deep down they know that it’s true that moids only pretend to care about them for sex.

No. 1105030

yes, totally. i've only ever been manipulated by one woman in my life (my narcissist mom) but i cannot even count the amount of times i've been guilt tripped, coerced and persuaded, blackmailed or just overall made to feel like shit at the hands of males, whether that be previous boyfriends, male relatives, male "friends" or just male co-workers who talk down to me.
There's a reason they pin women as the only "emotional manipulators" and it's to shift the blame away from them and on to us. Historically women are viewed as snakes, two-faced, jezebels and temptresses or just people who lead a "good" man astray, yet if you look at any of those situations objectively you'll see that most of the time it's just the feeble, weak-minded male choosing infidelity, choosing to betray his friends etc. Males have always had much, much more choice than us and they know this, so they shift the responsibility in order to make us seem like the evil hags at fault.

I echo what another nona said about the consequences of 'withholding' sex from a male. It really is the true test that separates the good men from the terrible ones. Men's nature is inherently manipulative based on how they're brought up and how they come to view women: to most of them, we're just a receptacle to fuck, and they'll keep us around when we're convenient, whether that be for sex, cleaning or attention and feeding their egos. I think the madonna-whore complex is a super fitting example of how a lot of men see us.

Withholding sex as a term is stupid when in reality, women should only have sex when they trust their partner and only when they desire to do so. Moids will act rude and straight up mean to their wives and then accuse her of "withholding sex" even though it's because the dumb scrote ruined the relationship. Again, with relationships men want to sleep with women on the first night and accuse her of withholding sex if she doesn't comply but then their ape brain makes them think of her as a whore and it doesn't work out. They blame the women either way so it's better not to put yourself in a vulnerable situation, not to test him but to save yourself of the damage.

All that discussion in the confession thread confused me. If I don't watch porn at all but I'm turned on by breasts and vagina despite not wanting to get in a relationship with a woman is it gay? For example I can't see ever eating out a woman I'd find attractive but I think I would be ok with fingering one. Keep in mind that I'm into guys, for context, and I'm a virgin but not by choice.

No. 1105084

I don’t think it’s gay but more like bi-curious. Gay would be wanting to be in a relationship with a woman -because she’s a woman- and also wanting to have sex with her -because she’s a woman-.
But not in the “oh man, I’m sure so queer and cool now” way but in the “wow I really love, appreciate and find women really sexy, I can’t wait to date a pretty woman who will love and respect me as much as I love and respect her forever” kind of way.

Ntayrt, but I have a question about this. I've heard straight women talk about how gross penises are and I've heard some straight women talk about how blowjobs are gross and how they won't ever give their boyfriend/husband blowjobs. My question is why are straight women able to dislike giving blowjobs but if a woman says she doesn't want to perform oral sex on another woman it means she's straight? This is a genuine question and I'm not looking to start an infight, I really would like insight on this.

I'll rephrase since I typed it out kind of clunky: Why can a straight woman dislike and refuse to give blowjobs without her sexuality called into question (generally speaking) but if a woman (who is questioning her sexuality or already knows she's bi or lesbian) dislikes and refuses to eat out other women, it is assumed she's straight? Again, genuine question because I don't understand. Also, I get that the ayrt phrased things in a way that does not imply actual desire, I'm not really talking about her I'm just speaking in general.

No. 1105155

This is something I don't get as a straight woman. I enjoy giving head but I'm not going to talk about it, but I do have other straight friends that say the penis is gross and so is giving head.

I’ve been getting closer to someone online and she always starts a conversation or extends a conversation with something that feels a bit forced? But the thing is she isn’t one of those online 24/7 people who replies immediately and needs you to do it back ASAP, she takes her time with replies and she doesn’t mind when I do too. The problem is that when a conversation ends in a few days she’ll randomly bring up a topic or question that can’t really sustain a conversation and I don’t know what to say to keep it alive.

No. 1105830

It's a long, long process. Maybe seeing a therapist is worth it, but I've been regularly doing light workouts for about 2 years now. I started just doing stretches before moving onto yoga/power yoga, to doing bodyweight workouts and playing Ring Fit Adventure. It's a constantly push and pull between "I'm just doing this for the sake of myself" and "I need to make my body look better" and struggling to not scream at myself when I opt to do an easier workout like yoga over a more intense bodyweight/RFA one. It's easier for me to power through my thoughts now than it was before, but they are still there (and I'm currently struggling a bit now).

I think what helps is building a routine. I would dedicate time everyday to stretch, to the point where my mornings felt off if I didn't stretch. It was the equivalent of having a cup of coffee in the morning or something, just had to do it. It no longer became about becoming more flexible or whatever, just about doing it. Then I already had time set aside every morning and eased my way into working out, slowly upping the intensity. I'm currently taking a break from RFA/bodyweight to focus on yoga and core building exercises because I struggle with low back pain. My mind is currently between "you're not doing enough, you're a slacker" and "I have to do this or else I will be in crippling pain, I can't power through workouts because it will just make everything worse." I also opt for at home workouts because I don't like having to set aside time to get to/from the gym when I can just work out at home. Before doing RFA I would also follow workouts on youtube.

That's just my two cents and what has worked for me. I've struggled with my body image for years and will probably continue to for years to come. But I've definitely come a long way from when I first started. I think there's a very delicate balance between being kind to yourself but also having self discipline.

Is a whole wheel of cheese a weird/risky graduation gift? One of my friends is finishing up her masters program, and she's having a graduation party soon. I was talking to her about this cheese I liked before and she said she wanted to try it, and said I'd bring some to her party, but should I just buy a whole wheel instead of precut slabs (which is how they normally sell them at my cheese shop)? Or would it be risky since she's never had it before? She likes brie, but this cheese isn't brie. It's similar but the milk undergoes ultrafiltration so it's a much more milder taste than brie.

Ok basically he seems to want me to ask him for money? to the point i'm starting to become paranoid that if I don't do it soon he'll leave me or something. But idk i've never been given money and have been taught to get things for myself and idk i just don't feel comfortable asking for money and I just don't want his money. If I needed it I would ask but at the moment I don't. Anyways, every time I tell him I need to ask him something or whatever he immediately goes "is it money?" and looks… amused? and then i swear he looks disappointed when I say no. He also loves flaunting his money. And he'll send me memes were the wife is like using her husband as an atm. wtf? I'm almost scared this isn't him just wanting to be a provider and instead it's a fetish! seriously idk what to do or how to bring it up or if i should just finally ask for money and see how he reacts.

Real question, not clickbait. What
do you actually like about men?
Besides being physically attracted to them, what about moid behavior makes it worth sticking around them?

I think I can handle being friendly with moids in small doses (I unfortunately share some of my interest in very male dominated activities) Some of favorite characters happen to be moids. But I don't think I could be around them 24/7 or live with one. They almost always have some gross aspect to them, whether it's watching fucked up porn/fetish shit and not having a problem with it, terrible political ideas, or hygiene issues.

Like, if my friend does stuff like that while having a boyfriend and he doesn't know about it, is it cheating? She of course doesn't do it all the time and it's not even a career, and she is really trying to quit plus her actual studies and work is going fine… it's like an impulsion that gets the best of her sometimes, when she is feeling particularly unhinged. She isn't like, getting off to it all, it is just slipping back into old habits from when she was a young teen, and only rarely, when her mental health is nosediving and she doesn't let it go too far. Is it cheating? She loves her partner a lot and would never actually cheat on him, the act doesn't bring her sexual gratification.

before my current partner of about 4 years i really think i only pursued men because of comphet/easy validation. i'm bi but much prefer women, like, literally 99.9% prefer women and i think my (sigh, using this term for the first time so bare with me) nigel is that 0.1% that keeps me from identifying as a lesbian because I've literally sat here for like five minutes trying to think of what makes men redeemable/interesting/attractive and the only traits i thought of are either exceptions that most men don't exhibit or things that women/lesbians do way better.
I guess their physical strength/bigger frames can be nice at times, but then again, I'd rather be with a tall broad-shouldered woman than tolerate the shit most moids put women through.

ngl anon this kinda sounds like its something you're doing and passing off as your friend instead to avoid criticism. no judgment here, it just gives off that energy.
as someone who has done similar borderline things in a relationship before - yes i consider it cheating. anything you're intentionally hiding from your partner is at least a gateway to cheating. it's lying at the very least if not cheating, and unfaithful even if it's a trauma response or for money/whatever else. if you're doing something questionable and your partner doesn't know about it/consent to it happening, it's cheating in my opinion.

It can jeopardize your future. Women are still held to high regards in society in most aspects.

Which vary in degradation and repercussions. I also don't get the initial anon asking that. It sounded like she was asking it for herself. As a good friend she should have been worried her friend's mental health is so bad she ends up camwhoring not if we consider she's cheating.

Can any UKnonnies give me some advice on picking between two unis? I've looked for advice elsewhere but I trust the farms implicitly.
I'm stuck between Exeter and Durham. I'm so worried that I'll get stuck living with a bunch of druggies and alkies who just want to party; I don't drink and parties are the bane of my existence so it sounds like a fate worse than death. Out of my friends already at uni, the ones with the best flatmates are also those fortunate enough to afford the most expensive accomodation, but I'm poor as shit so I'd have to work my ass off this summer to be able to do that. I know that there's shitty people at every uni but I want to give myself the best chance to fit in, make some real friends and actually enjoy myself instead of hating every minute and wanting to throw myself on the train tracks.
I'm leaning towards Durham because it has such a good academic reputation but Exeter seems like the nicer place to live. Any advice at all would be welcome!!! Please help!

This is retardes but does anyone else buy branded makeup brushes or panties on aliexpress?
Im convinced its the same warehouse kek
My brushes have all the correct logos (mac, bobbi brown, tom ford etc) and theyre very soft.
As for panties and robes, i get shit with the victoria secret logo. Why? Because its a lot less expensive and makes it feel like im spoiling myself. Is this retarded? Maybe, but im too broke to buy a 80$ vs robe and 90$ makeup brushes so oh well kek

Do you do it for attention then? Is it just a habit? You could try distracting yourself so you dont do it. Its definitely not safe to do it in your situation. Please be careful nonna. You could just take nude pictures of yourself and never send them to anyone. Does it make you confident when you do it? We need more details nonna. Since you dont do it for the money then please distract yourself so you dont do it. I dont want you to end up dead or harmed. Are you doing it as a way to rebel against how women have to be “pure”?

It's like a weird destructive habit. I guess it makes me feel good in the moment, but after the moment passes I hate myself more than before, and the money I do make, doesn't feel good. You are right, distraction is the answer and I am usually able to distract myself easily with studies and work. I slipped up once, a week ago, for the first time after entering this relationship, and it's been on my mind ever since. I don't want to be a cheater, but how can I face him now? I don't know what to do with my boyfriend, it is my first legit relationship and I have fucked it up.
>Are you doing it as a way to rebel against how women have to be “pure”?
Not at all, I so wish I was 'pure' just a normal muslim girl, and not how I actually am. I know why it is… daddy issues and csa, it is so typical, it's funny. But don't worry about me nona, and thank you for listening to me blabber…. my initial plan of making it about a friend kinda went to bust, kek. Have a good day, nona.

I know someone that lives with a schizo family member that refuses to medicate and it's fucking awful. She's afraid of showering so she stink likes hell and always wears the same clothes. Constant word repeating and talking in circles, not understanding anything you tell her. Not to mention the outbursts, random yelling, getting upset over random shit, being in zombie mode. Not allowed to do certain things in the house like simple chores or she'll get triggered. It's maddening and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Nonnies, is it possible that some people just can't tan at all?

Im white and come from a pretty easily tanned family but I'm like the only one who is very pale/Celtic and has never been able to hold a tan. I remember just burning when I was younger and no tan came of it, recently I went on vacation and used the exact same sunscreen as my bf. He's quite pale too but he tanned in like 2 days and I didn't even get burnt or tanned at all? I stayed ghostly pale the entire holiday.

How does this work? I'm not ginger but I do have light eyes and mousy brown hair, does that make me a Type 1 or 2 skin tone or something? Idk I'm confused but people were telling me I'd tan after a few hours in the sun but I was in the sun for a week and nothing changed.

I mean, Durham is a far better uni so I think of those two it's definitely the better choice. A more academic uni will attract more academic people who are less likely to party loads. Quite a few people I knew from school went to Exeter, and they were very basic sporty party girls, but fairly academic. I don't know anyone at Durham so I can't make a case for it really. I always hated the idea of a campus uni personally, so in my opinion Exeter is absolutely a nicer place to live, but the best way to decide is to go to the open days and spend a day wandering around to assess the vibes. I'm sure you have your reasons, but if your grades are good enough for Durham why don't you consider some other city universities that are higher up the league table than Exeter?

You're absolutely right that there will be shitty people at every uni, but you will only have to be in halls for one year. Sorry to say this, but I know very very few people who enjoyed halls; I absolutely hated it, made no friends there, and moved in with friends from my course and societies instead. Do make sure to read reviews for the halls; they give a good overview of what to expect.

Thank you for your replies nonnas I love you
Durham definitely has a better outward reputation than Exeter, but it's also really far away from home for me (I live in a tiny bumfuck village only an hour or so from Exeter, should have mentioned that). Both unis have similar reputations for being full of rude rich people.
As for why I haven't applied to city unis, I explicitly avoided cities because I find them scary and dangerous. They're just not my thing! For reference my first choice was Oxford (got rejected last year, reapplied after getting perfect grades and worked my ass off only to be rejected again. it was my lifelong dream to go there so my self-esteem and motivation and my life in general have completely collapsed, but I'm doing my best to move forward and find a new reason to exist lol. It's not easy but I'm trying!) At this point even if I wanted to change my uni choices, I'm pretty sure I can't because it's past the deadline.

Thank you sm for your advice about researching the halls, that's really useful nonna and something I didn't consider!
You're right that Durham probably has less party types, I've seen so many people complain about the lack of night life there and taken that as a positive lol.
I'm definitely going to try and visit to get the vibe of the unis, I'm finding it so hard to decide just from online information so I think that'll be the only thing to let me definitively make a choice!
The fact that I'll only have to be in halls for a year is something I need to realise, I think I'm putting too much importance because most of my friends are currently in halls, but it is only 1/3 of the course. Would you say it's easy to make friends who are 'on your wavelength' at uni so you can get nice housemates? Most of my friends say it's very easy but they're very agreeable, outgoing people, so I don't know what to think. I'm not antisocial or a freak but I didn't have many friends in Sixth Form because I spent all my time studying (and considering it was all for nothing, I wish I could go back and strangle myself!) and most people find me boring anyway because I don't drink. What happens if you don't find anyone who wants to be your housemate? Or is that super rare and I'm just overthinking things?

I found a secondhand dvd of Perfect Blue for 25 euros secondhand. It's one of my favorite movies, but I'm a NEET right now and it seems like a stupid investment. I never found it anywhere though, and I collect dvd's (only of my favorite movies though, I have about ten in my collection). Should I get it? I have the money, it just seems like a dumb investment considering I don't have an income right now. I am very lucky to live with my parents rent free and have enough money in my account, should I just take the plunge? I could never find it for a reasonable price before (although this is still outrageous for a dvd imo) and have loved it to bits for years now. tl;dr: I hate spending money

No. 1107523

Do it, but I will advise you that you can find this movie easily on YouTube/online in general.

No. 1107528

Thanks nonna! I know, I've watched it very often on random anime sites and usually watch movies online before purchasing them. Dvd's have something special about them though, I love looking at the cover art irl, reading the summary on the back, I love the selecting screen at the beginning and being able to select certain scenes, even the buzzing noise my dvd player makes adds something lol. I'm not a consoomer but if I really love something I'll spend the extra money to get a physical copy. I will think about it for another week or so, but I probably will. I'm just used to spending 50 cents at most on dvd's so it seems like a huge investment for me kek, I watch it quite often anyway so I think I will get a lot of use out of it.
