Natural fermentation (not vinegared) adds nutrition and probiotics to whatever is being pickled, but even vinegar helps too. The unsung hero of reducing stomachaches and IBS

No. 1520850

Facts. I had such horrible gut issues as a late teen/early adult due to multiple surgeries and illness. Docs thought I was celiac and the like. Nothing I did seemed to help, even cutting out gluten, so I eventually got referred to a Korean gastroenterologist. He took one look at my chart then told me to eat a cup of fermented kimchi everyday for a month. I'm not perfect (RA induced IBS) but holy shit (KEK) did it help. Just know you're in for a lot of spicy vinegar farts as things balance out. After a few days of the kimchi therapy (plus prebiotics) I woke up with what felt like a colonic holocaust. Ended up releasing a 60 second megafart into the porcelain bowl and afterwards felt amazing. Pretty sure I woke up the neighborhood but 10/10 worth it.

sorry to sound like a moid but i'm genuinely curious if a successful phalloplasty has ever been done, or the closest to success anyway, at least aesthetically? everytime i see one i'm shocked at how non penis-like they always look. zero shape at all i'm thinking why did they even have them take those hormones to grow the clitoris (i'm assuming) if they're just going to make a literal third arm/leg completely shapeless. it's so disturbing i'm wondering if there's any instances where it turned out somewhat nicely because no way are tifs looking at that and thinking yep that's what i'll be paying thousands for. even as a tra formerly it made me feel so sick to see

No. 1521359

I don't think there's anything stopping you from transferring back to your old university but it depends on how many courses you've taken. When I did that, they were only able to transfer a maximum of 60 credits (4 semesters of full courseload) that would count towards my degree. The other 60 credits to complete would have to be taken at the other institution. I would definitely recommend talking to a university advisor though from both institutions.

look for a guy who has a history of being in “demiromantic” (lol) relationships only. There genuinely are some men who don’t get hard for women they aren’t romantically interested in —normal human beings basically.

Yeah. I didn’t get them for the first several years but then with the 2nd iud I got I started getting full on PMS symptoms after two years of having the iud but no bleeding. I got a new one and it stopped. Not sure yet if it’s gonna be a regular thing that I need to switch them out every two years now. My obgyn got my insurance to cover it by saying I needed it for menstrual suppression (which I did but it seemed like it could have been an issue if I didn’t say that). She also mentioned she had some patients with endometriosis that switched theirs out every year because it just didn’t suppress their periods for very long.

find a guy who loves his mom but she cant be a boymom and she has to be a feminist, it is literally the only way. i guess its possible for some men who have had abusive moms to still respect women, but most of the time they end up really misogynistic so i wouldnt even bother personally.

I started using them when they were only good for 3-4 years but now they're good for like 7-8 years supposedly.

You can also read the transfer policies on the universities' website if you're scared of talking to advisors although I highly recommend doing it if you can. And kek, don't worry about that, universities are happy to extract money out of you whenever they can. Good luck anon!

No. 1521507

I agree with the other anons of looking for men with those qualities. Believe it or not there are men out there who aren't pornsick, misogynist and can recognize toxic masculinity. Very rare but they exist. It's easier to be with a well-adjusted, mentally healthy man than a man with trans issues and other sorts of mental illness. Plus the fact that he trooned out in the first place means he has a sexist view of women which is hard and almost impossible to fix.
>t. used to date an MtF tranner

No. 1521526

>date a ex-troon
Absolutely worst idea. As >>1521368 said, men transition BECAUSE they hate women, not because they hate men. MTF's are 99% sexually motivated, both AGP's and HSTS. Best bet is finding a moid who rarely uses the internet, lives a lowkey life like out in a more suburban or rural area, maybe one who was raised only by his mother and has a good relationship with her, and who doesn't have degen male friends. Trouble is that's hard to find.

No. 1521566

You can train a stronger singing voice and wider range, but opera specifically is the one singing style where an average person might not be able to replicate… I’m not an expert but every opera singer I know only has a very specific range, to project over an orchestra or whatnot. You can still learn to sing arias for your own enjoyment of course. like pop singer Naomi Elizabeth’s opera covers for a more unconventional example. Also you could study / emulate other singers who have loud vibrato esque effects, like Diamanda Galas or some moments by Jun Togawa.

No. 1521601

have you considered that you have a mental illness and that thinking people are copying you is a very common delusion

complete coincidence. actually I found out the guy I was into was like this after we were already together. I was just thinking with demisexual/romantic being an actual term people use now maybe it could be useful.

Signs he was like this: He was a prude but not in a slut-shaming way, it was always directed at the guy friends he had just calling them gross for having sex with anyone they could. Literally never once did he express any happiness for a guy who had a one night stand, at best he just listened silently and then they stopped telling him about it. When he was in a relationship he spent the majority of his time with her ("joined at the hip") and made plans around her. He expected the same and things would only fail when the woman didn't reciprocate.

–This is all very vague but I think it's probably better stuff to look for than dating a TIM and trying to detrans him which seems like an absolutely insane and cursed path

I had one a few days ago for the first time. My only preparation was 32 ounces of water, no laxatives or anything and the procedure itself felt like a lubed dildo being inserted in you.

Well in that case you have to weight the negatives and positives of a person. Not all people are 100% like you and agree and act 100% according to your views, it’s healthy to recognize that.

How do you shake off a lovely sweet cat that's following you without hurting its feelings? One followed me after I gave it a little pet and I was like nononono, I was bone tired because I was carrying heavy stuff and had been travelling for 6 hours, but when it stood in front of my building door I couldn't imagine closing the door behind me and shunning it (it's impossible to take it into my apartment), so I kept walking around the block hoping it'd get distracted. Eventually it did but not so long later I heard it meowing so loudly, i'm sure for me, I almost turned back. It was with a heavy heart I walked onwards.

Those that know cat behaviour what's the best way to handle such a situation? The guilt is eating me alive.

I'm fairly certain your egg was spoiled.. if you want to test if your egg is still OK to use, you can carefully put it in a cup of water. If it lays flat it's fresh and if it stands up but still touches the bottom it's not as fresh but still good to use, if it floats you need to throw it out.

No. 1522402

not becoming a boymom means understanding he's probably not going to be a saint and will hide his most misogynistic behaviors from you and target other women. we live in a sexist society, and you as his mom only have so much influence before his peers and rest of society influence him towards misogynistic beliefs and tendencies. you may be able to raise him to be alright for a man but like how most boys and men watch porn now, you only have so much influence as he grows up. you probably have next to no influence over fetish development, you can limit exposure to weird shit and stick to regular cartoons but if a sexual association of fascination begins that's it and he'll probably have it for rest of his life.

I need advice!

I currently am employed through a family friend to take care of a 91 year old woman. Have done child care previously, took care of my mom after her stroke, handled food, cleaning services, etc. Recently got the opportunity to take care of someone who only asked for women, and my brain immediately went to "oh I can help another older woman out!" Ended up being a man. We did a few phone interviews and he says the state will pay for me to get certified PCA license. But it all smells fishy to me. He wants to "trade back rubs" and go to Strip shows where women are topless. As a bisexual woman, it's not a big deal but it's how the conversation was presented. As well as texting, he said "send however risque texts or pictures as you want! We're going to have fun!" So now it just doesn't feel like a safe option.
I love taking care of people but not at the cost of safety or compromising morals. Should I back out? I just read a text he sent that "20+ women backed out" but no shit if even at his old age, he's still talking to people like that. I'd rather just have a part time at McDonald's than worry about some old dude trying to feel me up or expect the opposite.

Obviously putting this in the dumb thread because I'm obviously stupid for even entertaining the idea. I would love a solid license, but as mentioned, not if I'm doing any of that gross shit.

Tbh I see current day’s beauty industry more as a symptom of capitalist society than patriarchy. It’s very consoomerist. We were drawn in by marketing tactics, but have reached the point where it’s now so common for women to wear make-up that you might stand out if you don’t, just for existing in your natural state. It’s the same narrative with plastic surgery. If you criticize it it’s always “what about free will durr”. As if we live in a vacuum. I don’t wear make-up, but that said even I can understand for some it’s a fun and creative hobby. But when you think about the increasing environmental impact from production, transport and waste, that is probably only increasing because of online shopping and social media, not to mention you are caking your face with probably toxic shit, is it really worth it

My opinion is from a mentally ill person's perspective but I also believe that the will to isolate is often rooted in some sort of issues in one's life unless you're about to become a hermit living in a cave in order to meditate so… I'm sorry to assume that your reasons to isolate might not be to reach enlightenment.

For me isolation has often caused my day rhythm go absolutely off the rails. Since I won't be going anywhere or seeing anyone I might also let go of my standards for personal hygiene and the state of my apartment. Both of these contributed to the perceived need to isolate, like I can't leave my apartment because I look like a fucking gremlin and I can't let anyone in because my apartment looks like a landfill.

Also if you have a problem in your life, not necessarily a mental health problem per se but like some emotional issues or you're hung up on something that has happened to you it might snowball out of control. Since you spend so much time by yourself surrounded by yourself and your thoughts it might be a bit too easy to lose the big picture, your mind might exaggerate the scope of your issues.

I can distract myself to a certain extent but eventually I can't run away from all the chaos inside and outside of my mind. The longer you isolate yourself the harder it becomes to stop it even for a short while to step outside to get your mail or go to the store. I'd become anxious and even borderline paranoid about leaving the safety of my apartment. Yes, I have been mentally extremely unwell during my worst isolation periods but isolation absolutely made it all worse.

I am an introvert and never have really had that many friends, I can easily go without meeting up with anyone for months so feeling alone usually isn't an issue, but I think at some point almost everyone's mental state starts to crumble if you have zero social interactions. Despite of being really well adjusted to being alone even I would start to feel like my life was so sad and worthless when my only irl social contacts were my mental health nurse and the cashier at the store.

For me it fucked with my ego in that I thought I was one of the smartest ever and normies are dumb shits, but it made me SO sensitive to any perceived slights, whether it be how the cashier looked at me or seeing something online that disparaged something I like kek.

If you start to ruminate it can really fuck you up. I was definitely mentally ill at the time of isolation and it made me someone much more bitter to how you have to be to function in society. However we're social creatures and can't reject it outright, and need to embrace it if we want to thrive. I don't know your circumstances but I would recommend you go the opposite way and try have a super social set amount of time. I hate being around people, they're very exhausting but when you're fully on your own longish term it's like you cease to exist. Personally during those 2 weeks I had a lot of fun but I wouldn't repeat it because it took a long long time to reintegrate myself even to the subpar social level I was at before.

>But what if i choose to isolate, looking after the best experiencing possible while isolating?
Ntayrt but what does the best experience possible while isolating look like to you? I've seen sometimes people can think they are doing this in a healthy and productive way (isolating to dedicate all their time to self-improvement, for example) but it's actually extremely unhealthy (thinking you need to be perfect or achieve some arbitrary goal before you can socialize or be around people).
I think it's possible that isolation for a time could be a healthy thing but I also think that is very rare. And from my experience, if something is telling you that you need to isolate, it's very important to figure out why that is.

>But what if i choose to isolate, looking after the best experiencing possible while isolating? Planning everythig so i'm able to be healthy (exercises, maybe journaling and even meditating)
Nta but I was isolated in this way for a couple years, I didn't talk to anyone (I went to the grocery store and other necessary things though where I 'interacted' with a cashier) but I was healthy in all other ways, like with exercise and eating well, and I'm also not mentally ill. In my experience the actual isolation was fine, I feel way more stable and relaxed when I'm by myself, but the longer you spend alone the harder it is to integrate back into the social world. Recently I had to start going out again which forced me to break my isolation (I still don't talk to anyone, but I'm around people more often), and I'm finding it an absolutely horrible experience kek. I think having a baseline amount of social interaction like some other anons said is for the best, that way it's less of a shock to your system when you have to be around people.

Agree that this sounds like depression. Thinking you're better than others and that you deserve things despite your perceived shortcomings sounds like you're compensating for having fuck all self esteem.

Maybe work on that before you spiral into Aiden territory.

I bought a very beautiful elegant sexy just chefs kiss exquisite evening dress. Problem is I don’t have anywhere to go with it. I got it because there was a discount and the brand is expensive. I just couldn’t pass it up, it’s was like drawing me in and stuff. Should I make reservation at some fancy restaurant? I would invite my mom but if she saw it she would freak out thinking I spent a fortune when I really didn’t. Would it be weird to go alone? Any places where I can go alone and it wouldn’t be weird and the dress would be fitting? Fancy restaurant is the only place I could think of. I wanna wear it a lot then sell it.

How fancy are we talking about? Because I’ve gone to some fancy as fuck places and no one ever wears dresses like pic related unless they’re coming from/ going to some party.
I mean, you can always just go to the fancy restaurant and wear your dress, there’s nothing wrong with it, I’m just saying it’s not really the dress you wear specifically to go to a restaurant no matter how fancy it may be.
Plus you would be eating and it could get dirty with the food or drinks. You can always take it to the dry cleaners though.
I’m honestly having a hard time imagining wearing a dress like pic related to anything other than a party, like a new year’s party, maybe a Christmas party even, weddings, other religious events, graduation parties, fancy birthdays, anniversaries, maybe the opening/success of some business, a very fancy baby shower. But otherwise I just can’t think of an occasion, maybe some other anons have more ideas.

you can always just spend a 'night on the town' in it. someone might ask if if you're headed to a party or something and you can tell them you just feel like treating yourself to a nice evening.
several years ago i would never wear anything that made me stand out, i liked to hide. i moved to the city and within a month or two i realized i could wear anything i wanted, outlandish even, walk around downtown and everyone would probably just think I'm going to or coming from something and not give it a second thought. it sounds stupid but it was a real waking up moment for me that led to me being more bold and creative in what i wore.
so just treat yourself to some nice evenings where you feel good and look good in the dress. check out event websites and stuff for things you might be interested in where you could wear it and feel comfortable in.
unfortunately even at operas, where classically people would dress up fancy and formal to attend, are full of people in jeans and gym shoes. so above all else you just gotta wear it because you want to, because you will likely be best dressed wherever you go regardless.

This sounds like it could be also ADHD, like starting new hobbies and getting bored with them soon, rejection sensitivity (you might want to check out RSD), being moody. I can see a lot of myself in these and I am diagnosed with bipolar disorder but I could definitely have some undiagnosed issues as well. You do describe some symptoms of bpd as well, I'm not too familiar with the diagnostic criteria but stuff like
>when somebody flakes me i start thinking of why they are annoying and stupid anyways
could be splitting.
Or you could have depression. You could have a lot of things based on this description.

All those things can also coexist, and it is also entirely possible that you do have some issues in your life but not fulfil the diagnostic criteria for any disorder. Everyone has some shit going on in their life and you can definitely work on them without an official diagnosis or even without a self-diagnosis. The thing is that to diagnose any disorder, be it personality or something else, requires a screening by a trained professional and it's very hard to do over the internet by anons just reading a list of issues.

not in any way an expert, but from my understanding the amount of ram doesn't matter if your gpu is shit. it looks like both computers are fine, even though 512 GB is the bare minimum in my opinion. if you have the option to go for 1 TB or more, i'd say go for one with at least 1 TB. if you have an external hard drive and diligently sort out your files so they don't clog up your hard drive, it should be fine with 512 GB though.

if those are your only two options, i'd go for the 1st option. 16 gb ram should be just fine for modern games but if it's mostly retro stuff you're playing you should be good either way!

This is probably very retarded and socially inept of me but I really would like some advice/guidance, nonnas.
I matched with this woman on a dating app, we have quite a bit of an agegap (I'm 23, she's 37), but she said she didn't mind me being younger. Anyways, thing is what she wants and what I want are very different, she wants some real commitment, going the extra mile for the relationship while I don't really want that right now, I just want to try dating for the first time. But retard me didn't fucking say that, I did say I was unsure and such but. She also said she's prone to yelling and that's something I can't take at all.
We have a date arranged for tomorrow, I kind of don't want to go but I said I wanted to go, this is so fucking stupid of me, but I am realizing dating and all is just way too much energy-consuming and I don't want it, we've only talked for a week and I'm already exhausted talking to someone everyday outside of work. I don't think I want to be in a relationship, I just want to be alone as I have been for all my life. But how do I say this to her? Or do I just go to the date tomorrow? It would be my first ever date, but it will also be with someone I'm probably not attracted to, she said she is currently obese, which is fine whatever, but I am not into that either, I haven't seen her (she didn't put pics of herself, but she said she isn't good-looking so 'don't expect too much' but I'm very mid-looking too), I've talked to her on call. What do I do nonnas? She asked me if I am looking forward to tomorrow and I was like 'yeah!' but I'm not.

No. 1525036

nonna, this doesn't sound good… if i were you i'd cancel the date. you can make up a reason, idk, family emergency or something. also the fact that there are no pictures and she goes for women way younger… makes me think it's a TIM/transbian.

No. 1525037

No, she is definitely a woman, even if you'd think maybe she just had a very, very convincing female voice, she talked about feeling dysphoric and such as a lesbian in our frankly pretty shitty, religious country.
But I really want to cancel, it's so shitty of me though, because I've pretended I'm up for it but the type of commitment and relationship she wants is not something I can give to her. And that's going to come up sooner or later so I should pull the plug while we aren't so deep. Right?

No. 1525040

Just grow a spine and be honest anon. Simply text them “I’m sorry unfortunately I have to cancel our date, I realized I’m not ready. Best of luck to you!”. Leave it at that. It’s fine that you’re retarded, you don’t have to resign yourself to a lonely fate if you don’t want to. I’m positive you’ll meet someone whom you’re actually attracted to and is attracted to you, as long as you learn to say what you mean and not downplay your own discomfort. Beside, romantic relationship isn’t the only way to achieve human connection.

No. 1525041

Thank you, truly. I WILL do this, I will text her. I need to stop saying yes to things I don't want to do. I don't even want a relationship, not right now. I like being alone way too much for that.
It will be out of absolutely nowhere for her because I was faking things, like a sped puppet, I hope she doesn't feel bad but it's better than giving her false messages.
>learn to say what you mean
I struggle with this in general, especially at the workplace so I take on more than I can handle. Thanks a lot, I'll have to just do this. I need to. I'll prep myself and text her in an hour. I'm dreading it.

No. 1525042

Do as >>1525040 says and be honest. Making up a flimsy excuse is just going to create trouble where she tries to reschedule the date which just leads to more lying and at some point you will have to be honest anyway. So tell her now that you are not ready and avoid any complications and coming off as a jerk

How can I stop feeling sadness over always being perceived as weird? Even when I tried to be as normal as possible people said I'm really weird. I don't really care what people think about my interests or appearance(I have very uncommon features that don't help at all) but the fact that I'm a drifting weirdo just hits me sometimes and it makes me feel very sad and isolated. And please don't suggest that I find other weird people to be friends with because I'm already trying to do that, I need to figure out how to come to peace with it myself without relying on a sense of community.

Do you remember the name of the actor that was extremely beautiful as a kid (he was a child actor), i think he had blonde, long curly hair and Japanese people were obsessed with him, comparing him to a bishounen/etc. He is white though. I think he was generally called nothing but 'a beautiful boy', but i also remember he made a documentary about his experience as a child actor (on possibly netflix) a few years ago, he is an old man now.

I only glanced at the first few sentences until it dawned on me what it was. Now I'm scared when they get back they're gonna think I read the whole thing.

developing secondary emotions (shame, annoyance, etc.) at your primary emotions/issues makes things harder to deal with. take it easy and try to change one thing a day and look for workbooks or a therapist to help with your anxiety and think about concrete goals. i

No. 1525305

there is no easy solution. You HAVE to take that first step and be unapologetically insane until it feels normal and it fucking sucks. I had awful anxiety when I started wearing lolita and other alt fashions out in public, I was a shaking nervous wreck and it sparked lots of conversations with strangers, good and bad. But it feels like getting called a freak by strangers helped my anxiety in a weird way like some sort of exposure therapy. It was my greatest fears come to life but all I could do in the moment was laugh because who the fuck cares, I was on the adrenaline high of doing what made me happy. Not saying you have to go that route of course, but it sounds like there you're missing out on things you want to do because your anxiety and fear of rejection is holding you back. Go to parties, be loud, talk to strangers even when you're scared shitless. Even if you're cringe, do what you love. Just build a tolerance to that rejection and fear, get used to people thinking you're weird or crazy and eventually you don't care anymore and that feeling of power is incredible. I have killed the part of me that cringes and I'm indestructible

No. 1525307

Just some basic changes to appearance can go a long way honestly. Find what colors, cuts, and accessories are flattering to your body type/skin tone.

No. 1525395

very simply put: find out your body shape, face shape and what season you are, or at least what undertones you have. then dress and do your makeup, if you use any, in a way that flatters you, but I need to add that people often wear cheap looking materials and don't get why they might come off as looking frumpy. Favor less synthetic materials, I don't care if that shirt is cheap and you think it's cute, viscose and polyester feels, looks and acts cheap and gross.

Have you ever consulted any of your friends for advice on what they think you are and what your tone is? Maybe ask if any of your female friends, real life or online, would be willing to go shopping with you or help determine your skintone, face shape, body type, etc. don't change yourself entirely and your style and your appearance if you don't want to to fit the trend or what suits your color or tone, just find something you like. Maybe drag someone to go shopping with you, buy a couple products or pieces you like.

The most important thing is to enjoy doing it, don't lose yourself in wanting to be presentable to someone else. By adapting a style and a hair color or makeup style that's completely disingenuous to you and not something you actually like, then it comes across as tryhard.

Should I reach out to that one friend who ghosted me all of the sudden 5 years ago?
I've been thinking about her recently, part of me feels like I should respect her choice to drop me (it's tiny bit complicated since we were kinda romantically involved and at the point she ghosted me she moved to another country and started building a new life for herself but it never sounded in our conversations like she has any resentment or whatnot), but I miss how well we got along, I rarely meet people who I have so much in commmon with, I don't miss the romantic part, just the friendship. On one hand, whats the worst that can happen, she will just ignore my message if she doesnt want contact, right?

Honestly you shouldn't. She has her reasons for doing it and if she hasn't tried in five years to get back in contact with you, she's sticking by those reasons.

Unfortunately Eurpoeans are only allowed leech treatments unless they can pay up front. It's pretty outdated but the government heavily subsidizes the leech farms in upper midwest, because without it, most of the rural economy in those areas would collapse. It's sort of a two birds one stone situation where the leech farmers get to stay in business and the EU can't accuse the US of refusing to treat foreigners who can't pay, but yeah it's pretty fucked up. Good luck nonna.

Curious about the lolcow school of thought on men who are obsessed with women… like, girl-crazy. I know a guy who’s addicted to Tinder and dating — not even necessarily sex, I don’t think — like it’s a drug. Willing to drive hours away for single first dates, obsessed with women celebrities he finds attractive, kinda pornsick (ofc,) overly nice to any women he meets but doesn’t bring the same energy for men. Also tries to keep up to date about libfem feminist thought (kek.)

I know him because he’s a really smart guy in my major and he’s nice to talk to about our field, but his life situation outside of that strikes me as yikes. He also really likes alcohol, so I wonder if it’s the same mental processes?

I don't trust such guys. Pornsickness and obsession with famous women is a huge turn-off, plus alcohol… pretending to be a profem guy while being a womanizer gives me predator/manipulator vibes. I've known similar guys and they're the scrotiest scrotes in the world, with a lot of shit hidden behind this "charming and progressive" don juan persona (just make them feel comfortable and ask about previous relationships). They use that parts of libfem thought that are convenient for them, of course (which doesn't mean they'll necessarrily respect your boundaries or won't push their kinks on you). It doesn't even take that much time before they start showing their true colors because they're not that self-aware. But some women surely are naive enough to think they're the good ones.

No. 1526748

what do you mean by "worth it"? if you have fun making videos on a specific topic or vlog, you do it for yourself at first. very small chance of getting many followers or making any money from it. big youtubers discuss how it took them years to build a following of even a few thousand subscribers, when they went viral is when they often really grew. smokeyglow's longer deep dives on creators are good if you want to think about it.

No. 1526756

I’ve done a pretty good job making him comfortable in admitting stuff to me. I’m not even interested in him romantically, he’s just an odd case so I’m moreso interested in picking his brain.
He’s average, even after putting quite a bit of effort into his looks. Like no girl would look at him and be like, “oh, he’s hot!” But he’s not necessarily ugly either. He’s mentioned Hayley Williams from Paramore and Zooey Deschanel, and that he’s more into alt and bad girls than other types.

He loves pretty women way more than even the typical guy, which gets combined with his passion for statistics (our major, lel.) so personally I think the Tinder obsession is like him playing a slot machine, the numbers game, in trying to find the “best one.” He struck gold once with an ex who was a super pretty and smart sorority girl, so I wonder if he’s trying to do it again. I lowkey slut shame him and was able to tease him into finding out that he keeps track of every woman he has ever slept with in a list on his phone, which he says is for health reasons, but I think adds to the theory about this being a game for him.

yea this is fucking insane, kek. completely sounds like a game to boost his ego. i hope he at least fucks well and gives women a good time, and isn't spreading any diseases.

No. 1526770

He's an ugly man who thinks getting women out of his league will fix his self wroth issues. The list and him being obsessed with the one actual pretty girl he got proves this.
I had this ugly female friend, greasy hair, shitty outfits, very weird attitude and she also had a list of guys that showed her interest on her phone which she once read to us, most were either rich or studying in super prestigious schools but the "interest" in question was like texting her on an anonymous forum once or sending her a dm once on Instagram.
Your friend is I think struggling to with self worth issues just like my friend and that's why he's using those women to fix his ego. He sounds disgusting and I'd never talk to a man like that. Most guys who are obsessed with super pretty girls are redflags, they're %99 super porn addicted with folders filled with the women they're obsessed with and he unfortunately probably also ranks you like he does to other girls. He isn't a cute girlcrazy guy, he's a porn addict who's preying on women that aren't interested in him and keeping a list after he uses them.

No. 1526778

>he unfortunately probably also ranks you like he does to other girls.
Aaah fml, he has told me “you have a great girl next door look!” which I just blew off, but it definitely felt like he was putting me in some kind of porn category in his mind. His obsession with categorizing and, as you said, probably ranking women is so pornsick.

His research is interesting and he’s definitely a smart guy, but even just for a friendship, his messy personal life is hard to overlook. He might move to his ex’s city after graduation (they’re still friends), and if this rich and pretty woman actually takes him back… man, I’d feel so sorry for her. I wonder how much she knows.

In my case I've been like this since I was a little kid because of that hypopituitary thing, it's just that right now it's a little bit worse than usual. I had random periods when I was way more tired than usual or had much lower blood sugar than usual for no particular reason before covid too. I think I caught covid in april/may 2020 and it took me months to recover, I couldn't even see a doctor to get meds or even just get tested because it was when lockdowns were imposed in a shit ton of countries when shit was nearly unmanageable but after I fully recovered like three months later I was just fine. I think the only noteworthy thing since then is that my sex drive is way lower than before I caught covid but I have no way of knowing if it's the direct cause of that issue. These past few months I've been just fine as well, I keep wearing masks in public transport because people are legit disgusting, but I eat more and more to compensate for how tired I feel these days.

late reply but having worked in the movie theater before it's not bad at all. Working the food stand is pretty much the same as any food job but it was almost always dead on the weekdays and got a bit boring. There was lots of free time where everyone would go outside to smoke, and we got free popcorn. Also we got to take home the promotional posters and standees once the movie stopped showing so I have several life sized cardboard celebrities kek. I actually preferred the theater cleaning position. Since the theater was usually dead the cleaning was not bad, and on weekdays you could literally just sit and watch whole movies on the clock. It was really one of my favorite jobs I've ever worked. I'd recommend it especially if you're a film buff yourself, you'll meet lots of like-minded coworkers and it's a lot of fun

It's hit or miss, there's some "real" asian brands (they have a flag next to the brand name) and then it's all aliexpress reselling.

For cosmetics it's legit but overpriced.

check the pictures in the reviews so see how the fabric looks in real life.

look for items that aren't made of synthetics. Maybe denim since even cheap denim tends to last longer than other fabrics in the same price range.

My personal tip is to favor loose cuts because you'll put less strain on the seams, you'll sweat less so they won't need to be washed as often, and they can be layered easily if they turn out more transparent than planned or if I want to protect them from the inside with an undershirt. I have one aliexpress blouse I love and wear every season and I managed to make it last 2 years so far even though the fabric is Shein-tier. Though I also made sure to pick a color that would look good with some color fading.

Idk if this is a legitimate political theory but for every political resistance or revolutionary group, isn't it true that there's two kinds of people within them: the first kind who joined because there is no other alternative, they have nothing to their names and nothing to lose and are actual peasants under a regime and the second kind which are bored and simply decide to latch onto a fringe movement/cause? I don't mean necessarily that these people would get along or be part of the same group but both would identify as an "anarchist" for example. However the first kind would be taken into custody, interrogated/prosecuted, and jailed while the second type of person wouldn't.
For example, the first type is Italian anarchists peasants fleeing a fascist regime and at worst, the Italian anarchists that actually assassinated political figures; the second type is more like those twitter communists and at worst, the antifa losers who come from out of state to start chaos with their pathetic protests.

Yes I think you can try dating and if you find the right person they won’t judge you and will be understanding about what you are going through.
That said, I also highly recommend looking into other ways of gaining real life human contact (local hobby clubs, social events at local stores and venues, volunteering, even bumble bff) because placing all your hopes of alleviating loneliness on a potential romantic partner is very dicey. Even if a relationship turns out perfect it’s still not everything to fulfill a full social life, so it’s good to also look into seeing people platonically in person and possibly making more real life friends or even just friendly acquaintances you can spend more time around.

Is growing psychedelic mushrooms difficult? Or aquiring the spores (?)

No. 1528882

I would mark it a 6/10 in difficulty. The tricky part is mostly inoculating the grow jars that your mushrooms will spawn out of. You have to make everything bullshit level of sterile so you grow only your spores. After that, they grow really easily. Though fyi, soil flies (they look like fruit flies), will get in an lay eggs on your mushrooms that will destroy your entire crop.

Do Americans keep their nails long, it seems a lot of vidoes I see both american men and women tend to have uncut nails for some reason.

No. 1528895

Some women will because it’s seen as more feminine, makes your fingers look longer and more elegant, and it’s also status symbol, i.e. you don’t have a manual labor job and can afford the upkeep. Straight men aren’t supposed to. Hygiene and also no straight woman wants to imagine getting their clit clawed off.

No. 1528901

that sounds disgusting tbh, like it physically irks when my nails are too long

No. 1528909

Yes, American women love long nails, painted nails, and will get fake ones to lengthen their nail if their natural nails won’t grow beyond the tip of their finger without breaking. My natural nails are just like 1/2cm past the tip of my finger and other American women compliment me on them constantly and comment a lot that they wish their nails would grow more.

No. 1528914

Also adding on, Americans do NOT like when men don’t cut their nails, it’s seen as lazy and gross instead of elegant, usually because men have dirty yellow nails if they’re not cutting them, rather than actually having nice clean ones. Most American women will react in disgust if men don’t trim their nails.

No. 1528917

Some of us do, there are plenty (like a lot) of women who don't get nail extensions due to things like personal preference and/or work. Whether or not long nails are common depends on where you live too, like in big cities it's like the standard to have acrylics and things like that. I live somewhere small and I get comments on my long nails a lot lol.
The men keep long nails just don't groom themselves tbh kek. Men don't take care of their hands/nails like women do so it's not intentional, they're not grooming and they most likely aren't keeping them clean either. Ladies here know to stay away from long-nailed men (well, most of us anyway).

No. 1528995

I'm going to be honest with you, years ago I was just like you and I personally think just keeping up with the news and new trends and celebrity gossip should be enough. I've always been a turbo weeb and the reason why I had a hard time bonding with others when much younger wasn't just because we didn't like the same TV shows, I noticed in hindsight that it's because we barely had anything in common to begin with so my peers from middle school to university just wouldn't see any reason to hang out with or even make small talk with a brown girl like me who's too poor to hang out literally anywhere or have hobbies that can't be accessed without the internet.

Just be yourself, don't act like a sperg, try to know what's trendy or more generally popular with your peers in a general sense (like idk, I had coworkers in my previous job talking about Harry Potter being their childhood and people who didn't know shit about it still participated by asking questions about why it's so appealing or whatever), don't force yourself to get into hobbies just to socialize because it WON'T work at all. And keep in mind that sometimes depending on context, talking to normal people isn't always worth it, and I'm saying this based on how I was trying too hard to seem like a normie in high school and now I barely remember any of classmates' faces or voices or names and it's not affecting me whatsoever, it was a total waste of time and energy and I should have told them all to fuck off like I always wanted to and not eat with me during lunch break just because they mistakenly thought I was all alone and abandoned and sad while I was happily minding my own business and getting some rest from them. You said you're poor, pirating some video games, movies and TV shows you could like that other people like could be a start. Same with manga and novels I guess but that depends on which manga are considered normie-tier in your country and generation.

>do I really have to watch trash like Euphoria and pretend I care about Ice Spice?

Do you really want to have long conversations with people who like that kind of stuff? It's not even sarcasm, it's a real question you should ask yourself. Watching TV shows with several seasons is a timesink, you think it could be worth your time and be fun or not?

No. 1529013

It's not on you to take the brunt of the responsibility for the conversation when it's very much two-sided. If other people can't talk about things other than the trash they consoom, then it's their fault too. You may feel there's something wrong with you, but there really isn't. Most people can't keep conversations going when they aren't interested in the topic.

Anon you sound a bit like you think you are a speshul snowflake. Anime is mass produced crap too, just in a different package. Most of the people I know don't only watch Marvel or Euphoria, many have "nerdy" hobbies too like video games, watch obscure films, like weird music, watch anime etc. I think many people have some interesting stuff they are passionate about if you just scratch the surface a bit. Ask what they like and ask what they like about it etc. and you have a conversation going most likely. You can also talk about other shit than media, like the situation you are in (school, work etc), life experiences…

ALSO, hobbies or the media you consume should not be what defines your personality. I think this anon >>1528995 has good points, however I really think even the most turbonormiest of turbonormie can be interesting in some way and you could have some things in common with them. You don't have to like everybody or even get along (god knows I find a lot of ppl annoying) but it makes your life easier if you try to think other people as complete humans with fulfilling lives too.

If you try and keep up by sinking hours and hours of your time into consuming media you don't like you will just become resentful and frustrated because of how one-sided the investment will be. Because they will never put time in getting to know about the media you like the same way you do for them.

I had no time or energy to watch all the latest anime shit (there's basically social pressure to be a weeb in my country) so what I did was spend a bit of time scrolling on social media reading hot takes about said anime shit and looking at pictures and then mash it all up to form a fake opinion. Then I just got bored/tired of interacting with these people who didn't give a single fuck about me.

If you plan on doing photorealistic renders then yes you need a GPU, cycles(renderer in Blender) takes a toll on a shit GPU or if you try to render with your CPU. If you plan on going for a stylized cartoony style Evee is your game, you can also create photorealism with Evee but it's shitter looking since it's not realtime. If your modelling and rendering for videogames then you shouldn't need a fancy GPU and can stick to Evee, if your modelling for commercial shit then Cycles is necessary so you'd want to invest in a GPU.

Not American, but I thought this was a universal thing.

People who were in abusive situations don't all behave the same way. And every abusive situation is different and your relationship to the perpetrator, the nature of the abuse, your history together, their current presence in your life, the danger they pose to you in the present/future is all unique. It's not even clear what you mean by "abusive situations like that" because there is no description of what the abusive situation was besides that she was an ex-girlfriend and a stalker. I haven't experienced it but I think I would definitely feel massive relief if my stalker died suddenly and I don't think I would have any complicated feelings about it at all.

What’s the best medication for anxiety? Mine is so bad I can’t get myself to talk to a therapist. I’ve made countless appointments and never show up. Due to a mixture of not knowing what to expect, how much I’ll have to talk, etc. Last time I went was as a minor and they were expecting me to open up completely. I don’t wanna have to talk a lot, I just wanna get a prescription and be done with it. Can they do that? It’s just so debilitating I need to do something about it by June. I really don’t wanna go on like this any longer. I know a place where I can get prescriptions without any so I just wanna know which one is best to look up if possible

No. 1530551

That explains it. All of those things are found in seaweed, afaik seaweed absorbs a bunch of shit from the ocean. Some brands of seaweed are higher than others though. Like I said in a post above, California requires anything that is even ever so slightly carcinogenic to have those labels. I can't advise on whether you should eat it or not though.

Usually they prescribe a basic SSRI to start you off. You’d probably need to be diagnosed with a serious panic attack disorder to get anything stronger like Xanax/benzos because they come with a risk of dependency. Beta blockers are also prescribed off-label sometimes.
personally I didn’t like ssris because it made my head spin and I felt unmoored in some weird indescribable way, but they completely took away my social anxiety! So that was nice. (regular dread anxiety remained though lol) I haven’t tried the others, I have an addictive personality and lower-than-average blood pressure.

No. 1530575

There's not a best medication for anxiety, it depends on you. I've been on like every one under the sun and not really one has worked. A lot of people like lexapro. Currently on effexor and would not recommend it as I have horrid night sweats and night terrors where I scream in my sleep. I'm trying to lower the dosage to get rid of the night terrors but the night sweats have been an issue for me since I started it.

No. 1530578

Nona, first I'm sorry you're struggling with anxiety. It sucks. Unfortunately though there is no OTC medicine for anxiety, it has to be prescribed. You will not be able to just walk in to a psych office, say hi, get Rx and leave. You will have to do an intake appointment and then an appointment with a psych to discuss your issues and determine a regimen. My appointments are usually less than 20 minutes. I know it's hard but you have to see the process through - Nobody here can tell you what medication is best because there are many factors involved, such as your health, any comorbidities, interactions with other medications, etc. The office I go to, the therapist is an entirely different person than the psych who handles your Rx. But the psych does need to have an understanding of your issues in order to help determine what medication will work best.

There is a reason you have to go through these hoops, some medications may not agree with you or be right for you. Please don't go to some fly by night pill mill style operation that will just give you whatever you want. I suggest bringing a friend with you or seeing about telehealth where you can be seen from the comfort of your home if you can. Either way you are just going to have to bite the bullet and follow through, you are halfway there by realizing you need help and are seeking it out.

Good luck nonnie, I hope things get better for you.

No. 1530582

There is no "best medication", it's a matter of trial and error. First line medical treatment is an SSRI. Anyway your anxiety is never going to improve if you "just wanna get a prescription and be done with it". Probably what keeps your anxiety going is not dealing with your issues and having this kind of coping mechanism.

No. 1530588

Just to add to this Nona's input, this kind of coping mechanism will absolutely snowball. Avoidant behavior will get worse and it will control your life. Medication is only one part of the equation to treating anxiety, the other part is addressing behaviors and bad habits that become ingrained with it.

No. 1530597

Yeah exactly, and you have to feel anxiety and experience coping with that feeling in order to reduce it. Any pill you could take that will instantly relieve your anxiety, will make your anxiety way worse over time. SSRIs and others are useful for getting to a point where you can work through your issues in therapy or on your own if you're very capable. But I don't think anyone should be on that shit long term unless it's completely necessary.

No. 1530804

-drinking too much or too close to bedtime
-not actually getting into a deep sleep for some reason (having an uncomfortable bed or pillow, sleeping too hot or too cold, stress again, new meds, wearing a nicotine patch to bed, sleep paralysis demon, sleep apnea, etc.)

-not removing eye makeup properly or at all
-facial product such as lotion causing irritation and inflaming sensitive eye area (you would probably notice this while you're awake but maybe not, product moves around on your face while you sleep)
-anything that negatively affects your upper airway, from your tonsils to your septum to the air quality where you live, smoking, lingering sinus infection, etc.

No. (But also sometimes yes if you have no credit or bad credit and want a certain type of job.)

The idea behind getting the card is so you can build good credit (easiest way to do that is get a credit card and use it occasionally and pay it off immediately for a few years.) Jobs can require you let them run a credit and background check before hiring you. There are jobs that deal with financial information where they want you to have a good credit score because the logic goes that if you have good credit you aren't in debt so you will be less likely to steal from the company or its clients. This is obviously stupid but so it goes. I've heard of companies that stopped running credit checks entirely because it's a useless waste of time and money, plus a lot of new hires had horrible credit from college debt, but plenty still do it. Dunno if you're a burger but it's legal in most states to deny someone any job based on bad credit, only restricted in like a dozen states and they have exceptions that allow it for financial jobs; not sure about other countries.

Hopefully I'm not talking out my ass, this isn't my area of expertise I just heard about it in a job I had hiring people and I googled a couple things just now to refresh my memory.

I looked him up on through his state’s public records of people who were in their payroll. I knew his age and then I had a last name. Then with that I was able to find his college (he graduated during Covid so his graduation was literally just like a pdf?), I knew what his degree was in and went to that section and he was on the list. Then looked him up on the college site and stumbled on his email. Then looked him up with his email and was able to find a resume, which had pretty much everything he’d told me plus his address and phone number

Tbh this was not a great example bc I did most of it myself but other guys have sent me screenshot of whatever and their last name will be on it. With a first and last name plus dob and state you can find pretty much anyone bc most ppl have a phone number under their name and live somewhere or whatever lol. Sorry to let you guys down but it’s really that simple I’m not using any magic lol :sob

LMAO nona, that's so much work on your part. I guess I would probably do the same thing if I was online dating (definitely wouldn't tell the dude in case he found it creepy). I doubt they "want" you to find it, they are sharing normal information from what you've said. Normal people don't think about opsec.
Have you ever found out a guy was lying to you? Like he says he went to blah-blah college but you couldn't find him on blah-blah college's website? I'd be more troubled if I couldn't find anything.

Is it possible to have shallow yet intense emotions? Because I feel very strongly and I wear my emotions on my sleeve, yet when I try to think about how I'm feeling it seems very surface level and that there is nothing underneath. Like oil burning on water. Like there is a level of calculation behind everything that I can't turn off, I can't just feel the moment. Like when I stop to feel what I'm feeling, I feel like I'm scraping of a layer of emotion at the top to reveal a nothingness below. Is that normal?

No. 1531676

All of them were honest or at least everything checked out. And you have a good point, and I think that answers my question. I never intended to give them my info bc what if the guy is crazy? But men don’t have to worry about that I guess. Also lol I literally confessed to the last guy I did it and he didn’t care, which is why I got to thinking about this whole thing again lately.

The current huge wave of bandwagoner gendies will die out somewhat when it stops being trendy in favor of some other new group identities. Before this the big identities were just being gay and mentally ill (and anorexic) on tumblr which eventually spawned the troon wave, before that it was being scene and before that emo and cutting yourself, before that grunge, before that goth and punk and hippies and beats and so on. Adolescents will always be the same about wanting quirky nicknames and new haircuts and flashy outfits and body mods and self destructive behaviors. Trend cycles are so fast now and teenagers are so sheltered that identities centered around strict fashion rules and music gatherings is less viable, though, so gender and sexuality and mental illness lists are winning out now. I’m guessing gender ID will take a backseat to some new big teenager label eventually but not completely be gone.

Yeah. The AGPs are unmasking hard and fast now that talking about how being a toddler girl gives them boners. They've gone from being tragic humans who only want to live their lives to being repulsive to everyone who would have been willing to give them a chance. Detransitioners, and the massive amounts of money to be made from them by the same pharma companies that encouraged them to troon out, will help make troonism unfashionable. The narrative will shift from TRAs being kind and accepting souls to TRAs actively encouraging mentally ill children to mutilate themselves, honestly it's already going in that direction now that everyone is fed up with trannies in women's prisons and women's sports and women's day celebrations.

& no its not weed or something. i have no idea what this smell is and i can't even find the words to describe the specific scent, only that hurts my nose the same way certain chemicals do.

The only thing that comes to my mind is the smell I encounter sometimes, it's suffocating to me, especially in hot weather. Unfortunately, I don't know what it is exactly, but it's a chemical they put in some perfumes and deodorants, and it smells kind of like hot iron. Might be a chemical itself or the way it "reacts" with certain people, idk. Two other people besides myself can smell it too, and one of them surprisingly likes it and looks for it in perfumery, and the other one is my mom and it's killing her too lol, genetics.

I've dated someone religious (and was raised Christian myself) and the issue wasn't so much him but his family. His mother would constantly tell me my skirts were too short and I looked like a whore when I wore lipstick, his dad would tell me working at a hotel wasn't respectable, on and on. The moid I would say acted a bit more polite than most other men I knew and he wasn't quite as extreme as his parents but he believed some pretty fucked up things like all women who get abortions are going to burn in hell and I just couldn't stay with someone like that. Definitely dodged a bullet by not marrying into that family though.

I'm asking for personal opinions, I know I can find more objective data online elsewhere. And I'm asking because a friend of mine will get that surgery in a few weeks now and I'm wondering if she'll be able to handle it or if she'll need some support.

Two of my family members got 2 different kinds. One got gastric bypass, stayed thin for a year and became fat again. The other never got thin on lap band and had to get it taken out. Also she went bald afterwards

No. 1533186

My friend is about to get a lap band iirc. Do you know why your family member couldn't get thinner this way? If she went bald I'm going to assume she had other health issues on top of being fat. My friend is going to avoid restaurants as much as possible and seems like she's going to stick to a strict diet the first few weeks before and after surgery but I'm worried that won't be enough.

My aunt got weight loss surgery (I don't know what type exactly) and she's still very obese. She's struggled with crash diets and weird weightloss supplements and things like that as long as I remember. I'm not surprised it didn't work, you can't fix the psychological issues behind overeating with a surgery.

No. 1533188

See this is what I don't understand about weightloss surgeries. If the person in question has the willpower and dedication to stick to a strict diet they wouldn't need an invasive surgery in the first place.

My aunt got it and lost some weight but was still overweight and eventually gained it back and still struggles with it. My other aunt never got the surgery but recently went on some new miracle weight loss prescription drug that makes you have more energy and better mood and lose a bit of weight and now she’s the thinnest she’s ever been. It seems like mild coke or adderal or something kek she’s so peppy and happy and skinny now, I kind of wish I qualified to go on it too, like man I want free energy and dopamine and weight loss. I think the drug also supposedly makes people slightly hornier according to a doctor friend of mine who was talking about it. I’m kinda jealous.

My mom had a gastric bypass about 8 years ago, afterwards she rapidly lost a lot of weight and is still thin to this day. She gets nauseous quite easily now though, especially when she eats greasy foods, and she can't hold her alcohol very well anymore to the point where more than 2 wines is too much for her. Otherwise she's fine.

No. 1533195

My friend eats a lot and doesn't seem to realize it. Our mutual friend thinks she eats normal portions which is bullshit, so I guess she wants to have weight loss surgery because she wants fast results. That's why I'm worried, she has bad habits, she recognizes it, but wants to easy way out before having good habits first and seeing she'll keep thsegood habits.

A family friend did it and was thin for about 2 years, then the weight piled back on. She did another weight loss surgery after and now she can't eat a bunch of things and needs to take medication constantly, and guess what, she's now fat again. She genuinely can't get it into her head that she needs to eat less and move more to stay thin.
You need to support your friend to make healthier choices. Go on walks together, offer to cook some meals for her so she doesn't get tempted by Doordash, watch a movie and bring low calorie snacks. Or talk about how much she's saving by not ordering food/eating out. If she doesn't change her lifestyle she won't lose weight.
I suppose it helps the ones who have binge eating issues, if the food can't fit into your stomach then you can't binge. Obviously the stomach stretches over time so that's why so many of them get fat again. A friend of mine has considered everything from lipo to weight loss surgery to hypnotism to anorexia challenge diets, but hasn't even tried anything that'll help her lose weight slowly and steadily, like a normal diet and mild to moderate exercise. She's terrified of never losing the weight so she wants instant results. I suppose it's the same for most people who are willing to go to such extreme lengths when they could have gone for a walk instead.

No. 1533244

My friend will avoid ordering takeouts and going to restaurants for a few months because of money problems and she also sees it as an opportunity to avoid eating crap so there's already that. She moved away from her grandparents who are jewish which means she won't be forced to at like she has an eating disorder anymore just to not have issues with them as well. My other friends and I will find other activities to do that don't cost money and don't involve eating because tbh we like hanging out at coffee shops and restaurants, and now spring is coming so we'll have more opportunities to be outside but I'm not sure she'll be willing to exercise on a regular basis just yet.

But even if she does tries to lose weight, her bones are genuinely wide and big, so theres no point.

The solution is simple, but not easy. The solution is seeing yourself as greater than all those problems. You're here now, and you've already overcome all that shit. What helped me was thinking that if anyone went through the garbage that I did, they probably would have killed themselves or gotten deep into some addiction. I refuse to let that be me. I refuse to allow things that other people did to me hurt me anymore. I experienced those things, and they've over with now. Nothing has power over me. My parents did a lot of fucked up shit to me, I've been abandoned by other family and friends alike, I've been harassed, stalked, and attacked, and I just don't care anymore. You have to make an internal decision to stop caring. All the messed up things that replay in your head only cause you to suffer because you interpret them as the source of your suffering. You can You can allow them to rule over you, or you say "fuck it, I'm not doing this anymore." You can let go at any time. Like I said, simple, but not easy, because most people identify with being a victim and it feels comfortable to stay there. It's comfortable for blame others for your current suffering because then you don't have to work on yourself.

Question inspired by Picky Eater Test from Unpopular Opinions thread.
What food/drink did you use to hate but now love/don't mind eating/drinking? And vice versa

I couldn't stand prunes at all, but now I actually like them, especially covered in chocolate or in the salads, for example with shredded beets and some walnuts. Could never imagine I'd eat salo/slanina, but I do enjoy it now if it has a little bit of meat, with borscht or other soups. As for falling out of love part, it doesn't really count because it was never my conscious choice, but my mom would feed me goat milk as an infant because she had problems with her own, and I hated it ever since. I could taste and smell it anywhere if it was added to mashed potatoes, pancakes, etc., and refuse to eat it. The smell alone gives me gag reflex.

No, a lot of people say that about 2015-2016 so it's not just you. I agree actually. Sometimes I wonder if it's because I was a teen back then so for the first time really aware and understandig of stuff broader than myself but it seems to be such a common sentiment so idk.

Sorry about that nonna, that sucks. I remember all of the sudden in 2017 cloutrap, dressing freaky, 'queer' shit and I'm sure some other things were suddenly cool. I was in high school and over the summer vacation my classmates dropped their old styles and wore way more color, the boys started growing their hair long, just out of nowhere.

Same. I was still pretty young too so maybe it's that it's the first culture shift I ever really noticed. The election of Trump caused an uproar and the lgbtq+ stuff got pretty out of proportion at this point (everyone saying they're bisexual or 'non-binary' kek) so maybe that's why it's a universal thing, even with older people?

There’s a guy I know, get along with, and really like for the first time ever. I’ve never had a boyfriend before (I’m older than you probably think, this sadly isn’t angsty teen posting), but I feel like this might be the first time!

I was very happy, but there is one thing and it’s destroying me:
I find him quite handsome, so I was afraid he has been a massive manwhore. I know the guy through my brother (they became friends a while back. They’re not super close, but they know each other somewhat well I think), so I asked my brother about the guy’s exes and if he “knows” a lot of girls. My brother said the guy told him he doesn’t like casual sex and takes relationships seriously, but then my brother added “Oh I think [girl] told me she had a thing with him for a short time, not sure what happened there or how serious they were”. [girl] is a girl my brother used to fuck. She’s also someone I really don’t like. The idea of the guy not only having a fuckbuddy but it being the same girl my brother was with has literally made me throw up. Even if they were seriously dating I really don’t like being with a guy who had the same “girlfriend” as my brother. I also don’t like it being her in general.

I don’t know what happened. Neither does my brother. How do I deal with this? Ask the guy? Stop caring? Still care but just leave it uncertain?
I want to scream. I really don’t know if I’m being weird about this. Have any of you been in a similar situation?

No. 1533469

Get to know him better. If he's going to bebyour first boyfriend and he has exes and you don't, you'll need to talk to him about it. Maybe he's still friends with her or talks to her, find out before you fully sink your claws into him.

I swear I'm not baiting but I was never familiar with fantasy dog RP or warrior cats fandoms or any of that and I was reading up on sparkledogs in particular and how edgy they were. So if any of you anons did that as a teen and did erotic roleplay like allegedly they tended to do as is the style in many RPG communities, was that like… in an animalistic dog mode or something?

Used to hate celery as a kid but everyone around me was always eating it (even without dressing) and kept saying it tasted good, and as a kid it didn't occur to me that I could just… not like certain foods, so I just kept eating some whenever I had the chance until I liked it kek. Actually, like is a strong word, I'd say it's somewhere in between "tolerate" and "like" because I willing go and grab some if it's available to eat, but I would say it's far from something I really like. In adulthood, the same thing has happened with olives. I don't pick them out of my food anymore but I don't mind their taste and what they add to the overall flavor of whatever I'm eating. Would probably not eat them by themselves.

Used to loathe bitter melon as a kid but sometime last year my mom cooked some (as she usually does) and the taste was exactly the same but my brain suddenly liked it. Even with the slight bitter taste, I really liked it. I'd say this is the only food that I've gone from "completely hate" to "completely love."

I don't think there's anything I've loved that I now hate. Usually it's just stuff I overeat in massive amounts and have to avoid for a few years. The taste won't bother me but when I put it in my mouth I'll just want to spit it out (currently it's those danish butter cookies in the blue tin- ate way too many of those fuckers a few years back kek).

Is it really that weird to ask other women for spare tampons/pads? I keep seeing anons in the mtf threads saying no woman would ever ask for another woman in the bathroom for a pad but I’ve done it.

No. 1533775

no woman who isn't a sjw brown-noser validation-seeker would dare ask a tranny is what i'd say

No. 1533778

It’s not that weird tbh, it’s just not common to have someone asking for tampons and such since most women just carry emergency pads and tampons in their own purses. I carry emergency pads because I don’t really know if I could actually find another woman in the bathroom, and because most of the women at my workplace don’t have to deal with periods anymore.
I’ve gotten asked before for a pad or a tampon like once while traveling, but that’s kind of expected tbh, not everyone expects their period while traveling.
What makes anons say so is that there’s no way in hell that a woman would see a hulking tranny and would ask specifically to him for a tampon or a pad because normie women don’t think they would carry around such things since they don’t need them.

No. 1533798

Needing to borrow a pad is just a sign of being disorganised. As a woman/teenage girl you would just have one on hand because of paranoia, but of course there are situations where you are unprepared. It's just rare to ever need to borrow one, it's better to just quietly go buy your own pack.

Some nonnas in the MtF thread will sometimes start saying stuff just to piss off lurking troons and remind them that they'll NBAW. One example being the tampon/pad situation, it's not weird between actual women, it just happens rarely because most women are always prepared, and at most it'd be awkward to ask. The thing is that trannies will grasp at straws to validate their identity, so even just admitting to doing these things is enough material to fuel their delusion/fetish, so I can understand why nonnas would say that it never happens. What's certainly true is that no woman, not even handmaidens imo (even they got to have common sense in this situation), would ever ask a troon for a tampon or react positively to him asking for one, and irl you can always tell they're males so there's no way it'd happen accidentally, but troons don't get that.

I've personally never had to borrow a pad from a stranger, since I always come prepared in various ways when going out. The most I've done is borrow one from other women in my family. But I don't see a reason to be ashamed of asking a stranger if you really need it.

No. 1533822

I don't personally. Don't know anyone who would ask for a pad anyway, cause most women track their cycle or at least can feel when the period is close, so they would be prepared.
Well, I don't track mine, but if I get caught by the period I don't mind bleeding since for the first few hours I would just stain my panties with little to no blood. So what the point of asking for a pad if there is only small amount of blood that wouldn't bleed? Although I never ran out of pads in the middle of my period.

samefag. sorry i didnt realize how retarded that was. i just feel such a bad guilt on my chest knowing that poverty is a big problem in my country and i landed a job that pays me well and havent yet managed to put out a product. i do try my hardest at work, but feeling like i dont deserve this much money is a guilt i just cant get rid of. plus like all stem-fields, work is hard as shit.

Spend less time on Twitter/Tumblr and more time in therapy. What do you think would happen if you did that? You get a big pat on the head and the money you would have wasted will now go to orphans? Get a fucking grip anon. Donate to shelters or help out in a soup kitchen. You'll get better at your job with time, you can't expect to do things perfectly when you're new.

I stopped taking birth control pills after like 5 years.. will my acne come back? i had a very VERY bad acne and when i took the pills it was managable. Not the best but i didn't look like a zombie. Do you guys think it will come back bad again?

You probably have imposter syndrome anon. If you got the job, you're obviously qualified. And would a man feel guilt over making "too much" money? No. But if you still feel guilty you can always use your money to commission me, a low income artist kek. Have more confidence in yourself anon.

i guess i'd try dating him if a were you. It's a weird situation but if you end up liking eachother it wont matter anymore, you'll see and well… partners having unpleasant exes you don't like happens to everybody too.

Normie men will get with any woman their pea-brains deem as fuckable and available. Have you seen a man on tinder? They will literally swipe right on any woman as long as she looks somewhat feminine. That's pretty much the nature of normie men.
Your situation sounds stressful because it sounds like you like him, and if you like him yet are thoroughly disgusted with his actions that can definitely cause distress because liking someone isn't like flipping on/off a switch.
If he likes you, and you like him, and you like him enough to keep talking to him and you don't feel bad or shameful after interacting with him, my advice would be to chat with him and make nice conversation (alone, preferably) and then randomly bring up the girl. Like, "hey remember that girl my brother used to date? She was kind of weird lol" (maybe don't say the weird part but like say something that would imply you think she's kind of weird like "maaaan, she was for sure a character lolll" try to feel out the vibes and attitudes in a subtle way. If he reciprocates conversation, then you can lean into something like "she's just not someone I'd choose to hang around, she's just kind of mean". I would say to not talk about how you dislike her right away, keep it light and keep it respectful. You can tell him you dislike her if he seems like he's on the same page (I would advise against outright shit talking her though). Try to coax him into sharing details. Moids loooooooove to infodump personal details to women, especially women they find attractive, you just have to seem like you're interested in hearing it. Then if he starts talking about how she was weird or something you can be like "wtf! damn that's lame!!" You don't even have to be thoughtful about it you can literally say just that kek. Then you can be like "lol that's really lame I can't believe she dis all that please don't tell me you guys still talk!" If he says no, that's good. If he says yes then you can be like "idk…. I just don't really trust her keep your eye out…." then if you guys get even closer or actually start dating you can be honest and tell him you really dislike her and you do not trust her, you do not like the fact that he still talks to her, etc. etc.
You should try to do this if you guys have gotten closer, if he's told you things like he likes talking or hanging out with you, if he is reciprocating the attraction you feel towards him, if you know he likes you, if you guys have "hung out" a few times (do not have sex with this man before you bring the girl up I'm telling you this now) and things have gone well.

Anons, would it be ok to wear this bag with sneakers? specifically plain white ones, not overly sportive or chunky, but just sneakers in general too.

No. 1534162

Post pics of the sneakers!!! Anyway, imo, yes. This bag would look pretty nice styled in a "effortlessly, comfortably chic" sort of way because the purse looks very practical. If it was overly frilly and detailed probably not.

No. 1534164

Go for low white sneakers and maybe shorts or a long skirt with a T-shirt like that

No. 1534166

I think it would look great. Super cute bag, it looks very versatile.

Am I weird for hating it when the evenings get longer/brighter? Am I just miserable?

No. 1534239

Nope, you're not the only one anon. The sun should not still be out at 9pm. Fuck this time of year.

No. 1534260

I like the longer evenings, but the sun rising so early is rough when you use public transport to work. I don't want anyone to see my grumpy 7am face.

That tiktok ban people have been talking about, is that a ban for using tiktok on government devices or like a nation wide thing?

No. 1534350

this ban would be nationwide and on regular people, not just govt employees on govt devices

Nice. What would happen if you got it anyway? When will we know if it’s banned or not?

how do i stop picking at my acne and my cuticles constantly omg

my little fingies are constantly scabbed and painful and i already have pretty bad hormonal acne but then i pick at it and make it worse and no matter how hard i try to stop myself it inevitably happens, half the time it's just an unconscious thing where i realize halfway through a lecture that my fingers are bleeding

No. 1534384

I haven't figured out the cuticles yet but for acne - pimple patches, my face was always messed up before I started using these. I don't even know if they by themselves work at all, all that matters is that now I'm unable to directly touch anything. Just like you I'd do it all the time without even realizing, and it would take forever to heal, now it's few days and done. Give it a shot!

your large intestine absorbs water, so keeping it there will make it drier

Does anyone else get unbelievably painful/tired eyes that also look very fucked up to the point people ask if you're ill (or even make comments about me using drugs–I've never used drugs) even if you got a full night's rest? Has anything helped?

It seems like it happens a lot when I go out while if I lay or sit around it doesn't happen usually? I don't know if it's just some sort of blood flow issue or what considering that once in a rare while I feel fine going out.

I've been so depressed lately that I can't eat. I'm hungry a lot but the thought of eating makes me want to puke and the not eating makes me feel weak and even sick sometimes, worsens the depression. The only thing that makes me want to eat is weed but I don't like being stoned right now because I feel bad pretty much all the time. Is there any solution for this? I don't want to get too skinny, my skin is looking bad too. I am getting professional help in a few weeks, just not being able to finish half a meal is driving me nuts

I have the same, it's genetic for me. There's no real escaping it but I've found putting some dark brown eyeshadow on your top lash line and a slight inner corner highlight makes you look actually alive kek. I don't know about natural solutions but I've heard putting a spoon in the fridge and putting it on your eyes can make you look more awake. Don't beat yourself up over it nonna, many people have it. Also I don't know about your sleep schedule but mine reduced a lot once I started going to bed and waking up at a certain time every single day, getting 8 hours.

When I'm like this I have protein smoothies made with my favorite fruits + tasty protein power + milk. (My normal recipe is banana, vanilla whey protein, blueberries and milk). They have a lot of good stuff in them and aren't so difficult for me to get down, I watch something while I'm drinking them which helps distract. For even less effort you could try Ensure or meal replacement shakes. Another thing I like is just eating a lot of fruit. It's tasty and sugary for energy and should keep you going.

No. 1534529

Thank you nonna, I will try it out. Reminds me of porridge in a weird way, I might try to make some with cinnamon tomorrow because it's basically desert except not so unhealthy. Protein shakes are usually at a discount and I'm going to the store tomorrow, might pick one up. My friend used to drink them so she can probably give me tips which ones taste good, thanks again ♥
