anons this guy im close to is literally perfect and so kind, respectful, considerate, loyal, so funny, dislikes porn, is sympathetic to radfem views, is intelligent, charismatic, not materialistic, etc but i can't be with him and i feel like total shit that his energy is wasted on me when there are other girls that i know would be so much better for him and he's such a rare caliber of guy that really is in such high demand by other high quality women. he's such a high quality person that cares so deeply for other people. easily is the most empathetic man i've ever met. but i'm not even like a nerd and he kind of is so our interests are not there, and severely complicating circumstances prevent me from even being with a guy again and i keep unintentionally hurting him/breaking his heart and it's all for naught bc i literally know women like one of you guys would be better for him. he's suffering for no reason bc of me when i'm not what he needs and i'm literally making his life worse ffs.

i feel so terrible. idk wtf to do. i feel so guilty but like he's so much better off with someone else and i can't be that person for him and i feel so bad that i can't be.

My mum bought me a bag of handmade fudge while she was on holiday and I'm very grateful for them. They were supposed to be a mixed bag but whoever was putting the fudge in the bag put mostly plain pieces in. There were two chocolate and three clotted cream compared to about 15 plain. Still delicious, but I love chocolate fudge so that's a slight bummer.

Don't flush tampons, guys. It's common sense.

Also: I fucking hate women who hover while they pee. There's literally no reason to do it- Mythbusters proved that toilet seats are clean surfaces. All it does is get piss all over the seat and floor. If you're that much of a prissy princess whose thighs can't touch the seat, then put some paper down. Don't hover and get piss all over the place.

If you think you're a "clean hoverer" you're wrong. You've fucked up and pissed on the seat, you just didn't notice.

Yeah I know it's not very feminist of me either, but I find that making sure I wash my face and put a night cream on before bed is helping me sleep because it establishes a routine where I'm not looking at a phone screen immediately before trying to sleep. This is good for my depresso, and the idea that it's "self-care" is also a useful meme for the same reason. Self-neglect is a big part of my illness and my teeth are now starting to really suffer from the accumulated effect of poor brushing habits.

Cmon, this is hardly something you need to defend yourself over. Taking care of our skin is for our health just as much as our vanity, we shouldn't be so afraid of aging naturally but there's also no sense in aging prematurely. There should be more pressure on men to do the same, they look like fucking garage by mid 20s because they think sunscreen is gay.

And like all those Youtube channels with kids showing off toys and you just know the parents are forcing them to be their little cash cow.

Capstar worked wonders when our cats and dog ended up with fleas. It was $25 per pill from the vet but it killed all the fleas on them in about 2 hours and it killed any fleas that tried to make a home on them afterwards. Once you give them the pill make sure you get flea powder and put it on everything in your house you can't put in the wash like rugs and sofas/chairs and the like then vacuum it off after 30 minutes or so. Or you could just buy diotomacious earth powder off amazon. It's safe if your cats walk on it them groom themselves afterwards. It took a few treatments for our house to completely get rid of the fleas but with the Capstar I didn't have to worry about them going after the animals again so I just had to worry about the house stuff.

The past two days I was wondering what would happen if I just gave her the tablets straight up with no cheese (I gave it to her between giving her piece of cheese) and she still takes it and swallows it whole like a piece of cheese because she can't tell and it makes me laugh so much. In the end, she's the real winner here because she gets to eat my good cheese (not like, super expensive good cheese, but we don't really keep cheese in the house and it's some decent, tasty gouda). I love my dog, she's so stupid sometimes.

TIL that my great grandpa was almost killed by the mafia in the 50s because his brother had committed suicide to avoid being killed by them and he owed the mafia a massive amount of debt. Just very interesting to learn. I did hear that he tended to take no shit and told everyone off who got his goat without a care in the world so I wouldn't be surprised if he told the mafia to go fuck themselves if they tried to force him to pay his brother's debt then they put a hit on him as a result.

When I was studying abroad in college, I was horribly depressed and isolated myself from my classmates as a result.

I started talking to one of my friends back at home more and more, first through text and then we started phoning each other. I brought my 3DS with me, so we started to play Animal Crossing together. We would be on the phone with each other while going on little "dates" in each other's towns and it was the closest thing I had to hanging out with any of my friends back at home. We would both wake up early/go to bed super late just to talk and play with each other. I'm no longer friends with this girl, but I often think back on those days.

I'm playing Pocket Camp a lot more these days, and I really hope they bring over a lot of the new furniture from here into New Horizones- especially the new summer festival furniture. I'd love to set up a little festival area in the summer and play with my friends. It's so lame but I love Animal Crossing so much. I feel so at peace when I play it, and it also lets me indulge in my need for new and cute things via furniture collecting.

he and his brother were both lawyers but his brother was the unsuccessful one except for his party life and his gambling which him into debt in the first place, he got my great grandpa a lot of clients tho, and brother later killed himself with a gun when he racked up a lot of debt.

idk how people are using that "meme" now but the term as I knew it means… anyone who you'd say "peaked in high school" basically hasn't accomplished anything since, they're just a loser or a normie at best.

Sometimes it means the really smart kid whose grades don't mean anything at age 25 where he hasn't really gotten anywhere in life because the real world doesn't care if you got an A on a pop quiz once

Other times it means that 'popular' asshole who still clings to their old 'alpha' image who will post 'nostalgic' HS moments shit on Facebook and look like a dumbass because it's been 10 years and nobody cares anymore.

People (or at least I) use this in a disparaging way and anyone who actually cares about peaking in high school is probably category B and needs to get over themselves

I'm thinking about selling some video games and books I don't care about anymore or never really cared about. I feel dumb about buying games I never really played because of my lack of free time or motivation back then. I remember selling a lot of manga I liked a lot a few years ago and regretting it but now that I think about it it was a good decision because I knew I wouldn't read them again anyway. Hopefully I'll get a lot of money from that.

It's called msm (Methylsulfonylmethane). Vitamin might be the wrong word, it's a supplement but I tend to use those words interchangeably. It's for helping with muscles/bone health, but many people say it helps hair grow ( because of the sulfur I think?)

I only gained in my boobs, the rest of me stayed the same! Based on the research I did, some people did experience small weight gain (3-5 pounds) but it was water weight. Basically if you take too high of a dosage it might cause your body to retain water, which leads to bloating. From what I can tell the people who claimed to gain weight from msm were the ones taking high dosages (3000-8000 mg). If you take the recommended amount (1000-2000 mg) then your weight shouldn't be effected (minus the boobs). The brand I used was called OptiMSM and I took 2000 mg, if that helps.

I'd recommend giving it a try, it only cost like $10! For the best results you have to take it with vitamin c (so with orange juice or a vitamin c supplement). There's only four main side effects that people who take it experience:
>Will give you a headache if you don't drink water during the day. If I didn't drink water after taking my dosage I would get a mild headache, but after drinking a few sips I was fine.
>Can give you weird dreams if you take it before bed. Some people get nightmares, but mostly it's just really vivid/realistic dreams. Should be fine if you take it earlier in the day tho.
>Can make body hair grow really fast, I found myself shaving a little more often after I started taking it.
>Can mess with your menstrual cycle; my period is normally super regular but after taking msm it came almost a week late; but it was also not as heavy and I didn't have cramps.

Obviously every body is different, but msm seems to pretty consistent in its results and i'd trust it

From what I've read there's no extreme negative health effects, although there isn't really any long-term medical studies about its effects, so it should be used with caution. Doctors say to only take it for three months at a time though, and take breaks when using it, so it's not for long term use.

I got mine from amazon (link if you wanna check it out:https://www.amazon.com/Kala-Health-Supplement-Inflammation-Allergies/dp/B000NPKFCA ).
I used about a teaspoon a day and it lasted for about a month. There's three forms (pill, powder, and crystal). Powder/crystal work better, and the only differences between them is that crystals dissolves in water easier which makes it easier to drink. Not gonna lie, it doesn't taste the best but it's drinkable lol. I've seen the pill form at grocery stores in the vitamin aisle, but I think the powder forms are only sold at health stores that cater to selling supplements. Not sure about other sites that sell it.

I have a "crazy" story I have been telling everyone. My friends, roommates, coworkers. Lol. I will post it here.

My ex, my bestie, and their friend Ben went to undergrad together. At that time, my ex was not very nice to my friend Ben. However, I didn't become friends with Ben until after I broke up with my ex and they all graduated from undergrad.

My bff and Ben had a lot in common. Naturally, Ben developed a crush on my bff. However, my bff didn't like him back and it caused a lot of problems between them.

Instead, my bff liked my ex better even though they had less things in common. This hurt Ben's feelings.

Eventually, my bff developed a crush on my ex. The kicker was that my bff isn't the type of guy my friend likes. So Ben was really jealous after that. Sad :/

That’s better than the story where I had a crush on a guy and gushed to my best friend about him. He invited me to his place to hang out but it was a frat house so I invited my bff because I was uncomfortable. Everything goes good and we make plans to hang out again. He ghosts me immediately afterward and I lament to my bff for days. I forget about him. Months later he calls me and picks me up and tells me they had a secret relationship but he wanted to come clean to me because she cheated on him and he realized I was actually a good person. She and I aren’t friends anymore lol but this was years ago. Always like a “how could someone do this to me?” moment and I was always scared to introduce her to anyone I liked after that.

does anyone have advice for building your life from the ground up after being stuck in a deeply dysfunctional and abusive household your whole life? i'm only 22 but i've missed so many milestones and haven't learned to live a responsible life, because i've been trapped in a cycle of retraumatization for over 11 years. i'm moving out soon and i just don't know where to start or how to live like an adult and everything feels overwhelming. i know im not helpless, and i have agency and responsibility over the way my life goes from here on out; i just don't know how to rebuild my life, and i don't really know anyone who's been in a similar situation who i could turn to for advice. sorry if this doesn't belong here

Lowkey vent, but I got offered more hours at work and I took them cause duh, money! I was supposed to focus on my last year of school because I’m bad at multitasking and lately my family has been turning every conversation we have into ”you better not quit school!!! How are your courses going???”-guiltrip and it’s really grinding my gears because they’re thinking of my best. And they’re totally right being worried. I wish I could tune it out, I don’t need the extra stress being annoyed by both work and home-life. Actually they don’t even know about the extra hours yet… I guess I gotta just step my game up and work harder to get them off my back. I’ve never worked while in school before and I’m afraid I’m setting myself up for failure. I don’t want to fail school because of a damn retail job, haha

anon, congrats on finding an opportunity to get out of your abusive household. have you had the chance to go to college at all or any work experience? do you have a support system of friends at all? if no to all of those questions then what i would first work on is finding an entry-level job such as retail (the holidays are coming up so that should be pretty easy) so you can at least have some money in your pocket, establish a routine, and start building your resume.
i think in your situation it will help to make a list of short-term and long-term goals and figure out what individual steps you need to take in order to achieve them. accomplishing the small steps instead of looking at the big picture can really help when you're feeling overwhelmed.
just try to take it a day at a time.

The leaked video of that Brooke girl hitting her Doberman really fucking upsets me, I know I shouldn't be shocked anymore but damn how could anybody do that to an innocent animal that loves you unconditionally? I'm glad at least that everyone seems to be uniting in how awful this is, I haven't seen any brainlets try to defend what she did.
The video makes me so damn uncomfortable though, I could only watch it once. The way her face would instantly change from her peppy fake camera smile to cold-blooded anger when her dog would do something that annoyed her is disturbing. It's the exact same look that my abusive family members would get before lashing out on me. I hope that poor dog gets rehomed.

She uploaded a video of her doing the plastic wrap challenge with her doberman but accidentally uploaded unedited footage. I saw it on Twitter and it made me so upset to watch. I'm glad she fucked up and uploaded the wrong footage. Imagine what goes on when the camera isn't rolling at all.

The flip between her fake ass happy persona to being fucking PISSED at her dog. Grabbing him and knocking him to the floor and spitting on him (or what sounded like spitting). She overreacted to what looked like her dog just trotting over and wanting to give his beloved over a little lick on the face. Obviously if you don't like these behaviors, you should train them out.

I hate how a low sex drive isn't a thing anymore. So many "asexuals" just have a low sex drive and don't particularly want to have sex all the time. My boyfriend thought there was something wrong with him for not being up for sex every day. Fuck the media for tricking people into thinking a high sex drive is a normal sex drive, and a low sex drive is super wrong. I have a low sex drive too, and it's great not having to worry about sex. I wish people would stop assuming we're either asexual or there's something wrong ~in the bedroom~ because there's not. We'd rather just cuddle. If this were a twitter post, I'd do the clapping emoji in-between "having a low sex drive is valid" or something.

Sometimes I have sad thoughts about my dog getting loose and running off. I had a dream once where she ran off in the middle of winter and she was curled up and shivering in a pile of snow (she was just down the block in my dream and I was watching from 3rd person perspective, not sure why I didn't just go get her lol). Yesterday it was heavily pouring rain when I was walking home, and when I got home I was snuggling her but my brain just thought "what if she was outside? what if she was just drenched and cold, stuck in the rain where there's a fuck ton of lightening and loud booming thunder?" I never actually have to worry about her running off because she never wants to veer off course during our walks and is too old to give a shit about running anywhere, but fuck, sometimes I just think sad thoughts.

My bf got hard from cuddling today. He got extremely embarrassed when I teased him about it, it was the cutest thing ever. I'm super happy bc he used to look at a lot of porn and hentai before he met me so I was worried he'd be desensitized to everything. I also appreciate when he gets turned on he never pressures me into doing anything, he always waits for me to initiate if I want to and it makes me feel safe with him. When he touches me it's because he wants to make me feel good not because he expects me to reciprocate. It's just a nice and comforting feeling to be intimate with someone who truly cares about you, especially after reading all those horror stories about men that scared me away for so many years

Agree, my ex bought into the Tumblr asexuality thing hardcore just because of low libido. We had sex pretty regularly, like once a week, at his initiation, and he would enjoy himself and cum, but because he didn't think about sex 24/7 he thought he was ace. When I told him that was stupid he was like "not uh!!! I read asexual people can still like and have sex!!!!" (It's even funnier when you realise he used to be super pornsick.)

It's so fucking weird people put any amount of thought into such a non-issue. My husband and I have relatively low libidos but it's never even come up in conversation. We have sex when we feel like it a couple times a week but otherwise we like doing other activities together more. I'd never on my life say I was ace.

There is this host at my work who’s only 17 years old and constantly talks to me about sexual stuff and it makes me pretty uncomfortable. I’m not sure how she decided we were friends but like the first day I met her she was just immediately okay talking about every thought that popped into her head. And it’s not just me-she’ll have the same kinds of conversations with my other coworkers too. I’m glad I always see all the older males we’re around kinda brush her off when she starts oversharing or speaking inappropriately because I’d lose all my respect for them if they entertained it. I think she’s a sweet girl and she’s very outgoing which is cool and all but I want to say something to her and establish some boundaries without totally dismissing her or making her feel lesser for her age. Idk I’m tired of her hovering around my bar and asking me questions about drinks I’m making and seeing her try to flirt with guys in their twenties. I can kind of admire her moxie and again, she’s sweet, but I don’t want to be friends with a teenager or expose her to alcohol culture.

I had a dream that I was going to this candy-making place. It was like Build-A-Bear, but with desserts and sweets.
While I was walking down the street, I met Yolandi from Die Antwoord, and she randomly mocked me for "cosplaying as someone rich and important" because I wear alt clothing. She did this weird freestyle rap about it, too.
I tried to walk away at first, but then it turned out that she was going to the exact same place as me, so I said it was funny for her to say that, considering her whole aesthetic is ripping off poor people who actually have some modicum of creativity and are trying to have fun. She just pretended not to hear me, and left the building almost as soon as she came in.

I hate the veins on my legs. They're thankfully not spider veins or the protruding ones, but just very visible and tbh I haven't worn shorts in years because I hate them so much.

I wish I was 20 fifteen years ago instead of now. I'm thin with larger breasts and no butt/hips, but I feel ugly because I'm not "thicccc". In the 80s or 90s, I would be pretty. But today, I'm ugly because the trend is big hips. Nowadays, being thin isn't enough. Big breasts aren't enough. You have to have a big butt and wips, too. How the fuck is someone supposed to only be fat in two places and thin everywhere else? That's no how human physiology works.

It makes me really upset when people on lcf call out thin girls for having "no ass", or for being fat, or for having PS on their butt. What the fuck are people supposed to do if they're not natural perfect hourglasses? Die in a hole?

He does it because he thinks you'll cheat on him with any men you see if you feel good about yourself. He wants you to think you are worse than him. Males think all women are narcissistic and that we're all convinced that we're perfect 10/10 and males have to put us down constantly or else we won't respect them. I've registered on the male closed forum, they brag about bullying their GF's and wives to tears to induce low self-esteem so they won't cheat or leave them. Basically, they self project so much that according to them girls are sex-obsessed and have no empathy. No matter what you do, even if you'll look like a most beautiful instagrm model, he'll shit on you, he's unable to comprehend that you have human emotions. Just leave him, he's subhuman garbage.

I’m getting married this fall and at first I was pretty into having a very small, silly/kitsch party to celebrate it.. maybe even having a light hearted and casual ceremony. But my best friend got married in the spring and I was part of the wedding party, it was pretty traditional ceremony honestly. Holy fuck did I hate it though. Every second of it was draining and by the end of it, I couldn’t even fake having a good time (apologies to my friend). After that, I’ve basically completely abandoned any and all wedding plans. I learned that there’s nothing about it that I’d find worth it, so a friend is gonna wed us at our house and maybe we’ll go out to eat with our families. My best friend really wanted to be in my wedding since I was in hers but she doesn’t understand why I’m suddenly not doing anything traditional. Like I can’t say I realized I hated it because of her lmao. But whatever! It’s none of her business.

blogpost incoming, sorry for the length

I finally figured out why I have these deep issues of hating everything related to performative femininity, wearing makeup, dresses, girly stuff and activities. It's because of my mom. Maybe this should go into the confession thread instead but I feel a bit of contempt towards women and girls that are over the top feminine, waifu types, housewives, and trad types. I know this isn't healthy and I know what I'm feeling is wrong but I can't dissociate that sort of appearance and interests from my mom and certain friends that have made me deeply repulsed of being a woman.

The reason being that my mom is that sort of trad type that is an ardent anti-feminist and thinks that the world would be a better place if we went back to good old days when women were in the kitchen and were at home with the kids and men were men. I cringe even typing this. I've also met other girls with similar thoughts and opinions and it doesn't matter how much I try, I just can't stop associating femininity with vapid housewife attitude. My mom's interests are gossip, soap operas, fashion, makeup, romcoms. I cannot but judge people with the same interests as stupid and empty shells with no ability to form their own opinion. I utterly hate my mother's urge to always appease men and gain a man's approval. For example, when I complained about getting catcalled my mom told me I should be happy because when I grow older, I will regret not getting catcalled. And when once there was a topic on TV about women that are into dominating men, my mom said that all women desire being dominated because it's in our nature which resulted in me having a disturbing relationship with other men. She completely mocked the metoo movement and even think Epstein did nothing wrong.

I'm aware that it's not a nice thing to say about my mother. Sometimes we get along just fine, but sometimes, I just want to cut all the ties and never speak to her again.

In contrast, my father's pretty chill and has no such opinion of women. I have no idea how these two got together.

Nah, that's pretty legit anon. Not the projection onto all feminine women, but disliking your mom for her shitty views. I think I'd flip if my mother held those beliefs.
If it helps at all, gender conforming women who hate men or who are at least progressive exist. I like dresses and skin care but fucking despise men at worst and want a reverse-trad FLR at best.
Ironically I went through a similar issue when I was presenting GNC myself because I thought I had to be submissive and uwu weak if I was feminine, what a joke. I used to get angry at myself for even making gestures that may be read as feminine and was always on the verge of flipping shit if I was interacting with a woman who had a high-pitched voice. Don't know if it's the same for you?
I hope you can overcome it since it is quite frustrating.
(By the way I'm not implying femininity will be your ~true form~ if you overcome this issue, that was just my personal case. Butch and stag women are based.)

If you've never done it before, just start out by looking at the nutritional information on the back of packets and become aware of how many calories, sugar and fat is in what you're eating. You may find that you start avoiding higher calorie foods from doing this.

About five years ago I started eating a strict keto diet because I kept getting brain fog and it was interfering with my ability to do my job as a bookkeeper. I used to write down everything I ate and then sit down at the end of the day with a calculator to work out my exact macros. It's easy enough to do once you know a few tricks. Supermarket websites will have all the nutritional information you need. The nutritional information will usually be given for 100g of product. For example if you ate 35g of chocolate, the easiest and quickest way to work out how many calories you consumed is by taking the number calories per 100g and then multiplying it by 0.35. So if 100g of chocolate contains 534 calories that multiplied by 0.35 is 186.9 and now you have the exact amount of calories you ate. If you ate 70g, you would multiply the value per 100g by 0.70. If you eat more than 100g, say 125g, the number you would need to multiply by would be 1.25. I hope that's understandable.

I'd like to say that I sympathize with your situation, consider this though:
>I've also met other girls with similar thoughts and opinions and it doesn't matter how much I try, I just can't stop associating femininity with vapid housewife attitude.

This could probably be corrected by just meeting more women, specifically what you might call professionals. What you do for a living or just who you're around all day can shape this.

I also feel like the radfem take on aspects of performative feminity being instruments of the patriarchy (like heels are meant to cripple us) to be kind of bullshit. Imo it's just too much of a stretch, though I do agree with most other radfem theories.

For me, I enjoy the ritualized aspect of "making myself up", it can be therapeutic in a way. Similarly how having a skin care routine helps me wind down and relax. I see it like taking extra time to pay attention to just yourself.

Anyways, best of luck to you anon. You sound like you already have a good head on your shoulders in regards to this issue, like recognizing it as a problem, so you'll be okay.

True. Unfortunately, all my previous work experience has been in an office environment where women were like carbon copies of my mom. I've had great friendships with other women but they were all GNC, or at the very least, they didn't wear makeup and didn't gossip.

I'm going to move places soon but regardless, I want to change how I feel about this. I never bothered to analyze my thoughts or talk about my feelings before because I thought it was stupid.

don't feel stupid. when somebody has a shitty or crazy parent, it's natural to be repulsed by their offputting traits and opinions, and worry about/fear becoming like them someday. talking about it and acknowledging it is the first step towards processing it and dismantling it, so you can have a healthy view of women as a whole (not just the GNC or outspoken ones you're currently alright with). try to recognize when you're externalizing and projecting your disdain towards/resentment of your mother onto random women. i struggled with some really similar internalized misogyny due to my own mother which i projected onto women who reminded me of her. you don't have to respect or love anti feminist trad wives (or whoever else reminds you of your mom), but they're not your mother, and you may be making some snap judgements about (or applying a blanket stereotype onto) women you encounter. some of them may have hidden depths you'll never witness or experience, if you write off or dismiss all feminine women before giving them a fair chance. (not referring to redpilled pick mes, you have no obligation to give them a shot. what you see is usually what you get with those types.)

Watching the bpdfag sperg out in the ana thread makes me wonder if the person who caused me to stop streaming had BPD. She talked a lot in chat and hung out every day. Generally she was really nice. The channel got a little bigger, and I made some people mods, and she asked to be one, and I said sure, but once the chat gets more active and the mods can't keep up with filtering bad comments. There weren't a lot of bad comments to filter, so I thought it'd be a while.

The next day, there was around ten accounts that popped in and called me names and spammed curse words. I thought it was a freak occurrence, and everyone was doing okay with moderating, but it kept happening every day in increasing numbers. After a couple weeks of the random spamming, I was kind of anxious about it, and then one of the accounts, after insults, said something like "boy it looks like you need an actual moderator" and the girl who I promised mod to agreed in chat.

It hit me that she was making all the accounts, creating a toxic enough environment that would get her mod. I banned her quietly and told my other mods my suspicions, and waited to see what happened next.

Several "friends" of the girl, all on new accounts joined and demanded to know why she was banned, what she did wrong, why it was wrong. That I was mistaken, that it couldn't be proven. I told her friends I was disappointed in her, and that I may unban her in the future, but not right now.

Then the account attacks increased. More people joining, but this time starting or joining a conversation innocently, then landing insults that were really specific. It went on for weeks. I didn't really know what to do, so I took a break for two weeks without telling anyone. It wasn't until the break that I realized how much stress that dealing with that girl had caused me. I stopped streaming altogether.

I always wondered why it happened. It was really weird and tiring and toxic. I wasn't even a large stream to obsess over… but yeah I was just reminded of the behaviour that she exhibited. I realize it must've been mental. If not BPD then something else.

I wish I wasn't so garbage at games. My favorite game is Animal Crossing because it's so chill and I can still get a nice house and pretty town just by spending a few hours here and there working on it. I don't have to be a "super good gamer" to get all the best stuff.

I bought a Switch almost a year ago by now, but I haven't finished any of the games I bought. I first bought BoTW but I stopped shortly after picking it up because I'm so god fucking awful at fighting monsters and it stresses me out that weapons will break after some time, so it amps up my hoarding mentality to save all of my weapons. I picked it up again recently but I'm stressed about having to do the Vah Ruta dungeon because I fucking suck at fighting things. I literally spent hours just getting to the Zora domain in the first place because I didn't want to walk the main path. I kept trying to find other ways through the mountains before I eventually settled on making my way by following the path but still staying far off of it to avoid fighting. I see people do speedruns and shit but my brain is so bad at timing and pressing buttons correctly and quick enough. I know there's no point in being a "good gamer," but I'd like to just enjoy games without getting easily frustrated because I fucking suck and can't stop dying.

I just want New Horizons to come out so I can just enjoy being a basic bitch and use my switch more.

Why don't you look up game guides and tips? Also try just looking for shrines and not doing the main quest until you get a few under your belt. You'll get more hearts and feel a lot more comfortable.

If you have any more questions, anons can probably answer in the games thread on /m/. But just fucking around climbing shit, finding shrines, and avoiding everyone for the time-being is a great way to get more gear/hearts/travel points.

Delete and repost to say that if you find a shrine that is too hard, it can still be used as a fast travel point, so you can come back to it later and continue exploring.

I took a course in college where our final project was to do research on a specific building or place of our choosing, like its history and whatnot. It really got me thinking more and more about the history of certain buildings, and my current interest is in the Hollister building on 5th ave in NYC. I went in there once out of curiosity and I thought the inside was so cool- not any of the Hollister stuff, but the furniture in there that obviously came with the building. There were these glass cases that made it look like it probably belonged to a jewelry store or something before and I'm trying to find what used to be there before Hollister bought it but right now I'm just shifting through vague certificates of occupancy that aren't offering much information.

It's a weird rabbit hole but I'm suddenly really excited.

I personally wouldn't bother talking to guys who have never had a ltr and or aren't looking for one now. Only guys who've had long term relationships will make a good friend to another woman and they tend to want a relationship themselves, too. Guys who sleep around or "let's see how it goes/maybe I'll x or y" are like cardboard cutouts of men. They have no personality and just say whatever is required to continue the communication with the end goal being sex 'n ghost

If you want male friends look for ones already in or previously in ltr

I'm stuck between looking forward to being un-sexy to men when I'm older and hating men for not keeping their age preference proportionate to their own. I'm not even pink pilled, I just loathe that they are slaves to their lizard brains and don't even try to change their ways. It's all about their dick desires.

what bothers me about her is that with her classical training, great education, lithe body and model face, she could've done her shtick but done it WELL, like, not having everything be totally hot topic-tier? without calling everything "crumpets", like, without all of the really bad british larping, especially because she's from fucking malibu and her well-to-do background and education should've kept her from turning into a woman with the sensibilities and tastes of a family dollar cashier? like, she could've just done a blend of genres and a blend of 'funky' and whatever, without it being so trashy and histrionic. it's too bad, because she has a nice vocal range and skill, but terrible taste.

I actually love when I see some handmaiden or pick-me talking shit about women on Twitter, and then I reverse search their profile pic (usually an attractive woman) and get multiple pages of results.
Either it's a man who's too stupid to catfish well (and we know this to be common), or a pick-me who's insecure as shit (and we also know this to be common).
I sometimes consider actually using Twitter just to call these people out, but it's not really worth it.
Keep talking tough and picking at other people's appearances. You already know your own level of ugliness is so bad that it wasn't even fit for a profile picture.

Shane Dawson just announced he has misophonia and it makes me worry that a bunch of his fans will read about it and be like “omggg, chewing is so annoying, i totally have misophonia too!!!” because they misunderstand that it’s a severe disorder. I don’t know if it’s dumb to care, but things like that infuriate me since having misophonia has meant that I haven’t had a meal with either of my parents for maybe 7-8yrs now and that certain noises have enraged me to the point of tears or wanting to hurt myself.

because it's not a good analogy. so called italiboos are not obsessed with italian culture the same way that koreaboos are obsessed with korea or weaboos with japan. italiboos just want to use the small percentage of italian heritage to be part of their identity and make them seem more unique. the same way TONS of americans and canadians will brag about being "irish" and say things like "i'm irish and that's why i love drinking/have freckles/like potatoes!!11!" it isn't that they have an infatuation with ireland or irish culture, it's that they want to seem more unique, or special, or interesting or what ever.

I'm aware of the (mostly Sicilian/Southern) diaspora in the US resulting in the awful stereotypes that are Italian Americans, but I don't think it qualifies as quite the same as weebs or K-boos because usually weebs or K-boos have 0 real ethnic or cultural connection to those countries. Both phenomena are still an exercise in clawing at any sense of identity in our postmodern hellscape, but Italian Americans can at least claim to have an ancestor within the last 120 years who was logged at Ellis Island. On this note, my great grandfather did end up in America for just shy of a decade (we know he signed the immigration logs on entry) and my family have often theorised that he probably got a second wife and some illegitimate children over there before scarpering back to the homeland, and the thought that I have distant cousins in New Jersey that look like Snooki and share some of my DNA chills me to the bone.

It was late evening and I was doing something on the laptop, playing a game iirc. Then at some point it's like I lost awareness of my surroundings… then I snapped out of it, and when I did, I felt extremely confused and forgot everything I had been doing for the last hour.

My dog used to hate being picked up for most of her life and would even snap and bite me if I tried (I only pick her up for baths (most likely where the negative association comes from) and for when we go in/outside when the elevator isn't working (stairs were iffy for her growing up, but shes a senior dog now so it's a big no-no)). For some reason now, she doesn't really mind it and just tolerates me when I pick her up. It makes getting her in the tub and picking her up before/after a walk much easier, but sometimes I'll pick her up for a minute for two and walk around the apartment holding her because I want to hug her so bad. I know she doesn't like it so I really limit when I pick her up for no reason, but fuck, I love holding her. She's so fluffy, soft, and cute.

He hurt me a lot and I'm still kinda trying to work out some shady sexual stuff that went down but I've had probably close to a dozen dreams in the last few months alone where me and him are just totally cool.

Like last night I had a dream me and him were in school again and at first I was reluctant to be around him but I wasn't able to 'sustain' being mad at him. He had the stickers leftover on his jeans after buying them and I was laughing as I was pulling them off like
>haha silly you forgot to take the sizing stickers off before wearing them

I'm certain there are no residual feelings anymore but its just so weird to me that he keeps showing up in my dreams so long after we broke up and its always platonic, like in my dreams we're just chill ass friends, like nothing bad ever happened between us.

Someone mentioned 7cups on another thread and I logged into a really old email address yesterday and found an email about me deleting my kik and it made me remember that time I used 7cups. I didn't use any paid professional services from it, just talked to the free users. Experience was meh, but this one fucking dude really stood out.

I was going through a crazy rough time in my life, studying abroad in a foreign country (no one else from my school went that year so I was completely on my own making friends), and super depressed from the combination of loneliness from lack of friends and a stupid fuckboy that I got caught up with (pls no bully I know it was stupid and it's been like 3 years- I've learned to love myself now). I can't remember if this was before or after I started going to my school's counselor, but fuck man. I wish I had the brains to screencap all of it but I didn't. By the time my friends woke up (I was halfway across the world so 13 hour time difference) and I talked to them about it, this was the only screenshot I grabbed. I was gonna send more from the beginning but didn't realize that older messages would just be deleted or whatever. Looking back on it now I'm laughing because holy shit it's so cringey, but man was I crazy uncomfortable. He made me download kik and I sent like 3 messages tops, then reported him on 7cups, and deleted my kik (hence the email).

I'm also pretty sure I was hesitant to report him in the first place because he had crazy good reviews from a fuck ton of other people. Everyone was saying how he was so understanding and helpful to them… like uhh, did we deal with the same person? Anyway, I'll probably never go back to that site.

I'm still angry about this one time I discovered my mother's mumsnet account. She made me out to be some horrible, rebellious teen even though I was being controlled by her heavily and was afraid of being kicked out. She also talked shit about my bf, made up stories about him and fantasized about us breaking up. He's the sweetest person on earth and I think she was jealous that knowing him gave me a huge level of independence from her. I couldn't believe she could be so insidious to manipulate the facts like that and present them to a bunch of other women who were of course going to agree with her and make her feel validated in hating both me and my bf.

This was years ago but I still can't believe it and when I feel like we're starting to get close, I remind myself of who she is and that telling her any kind of information means that she's going to run to the closest middle-aged woman for a gossip about me.

My dog and I finally have the loving relationship that I've always dreamed of having since I first got her as a kid. She gets annoying at times and forgets the house rules, but I think it's just because she's getting a little senile since she's so old, but I'm okay with it because she's the most affectionate, cuddly dog now. She tolerates it when I pick her up and rub her face, and she always snuggles up to me at any chance she gets. The other week she slept curled up next to me on the sofa! She rested her head on my arm and fell asleep with me without being fussy!

I feel terrible because I've had her all her life but it wasn't until the past few months when I finally got to leave my hectic retail job that I started right after coming home from being away at college that I could try to be the best owner that I could possibly be. Better late than never I guess. I'm trying to make up for all the lost years, but I know I'll feel like it'll never be enough. I don't know when she's going to pass, but I hope she'll stay with me a bit longer so I can continue to love her as much as I possibly can.

comparatively few women do that, though it's a great excuse I'm sure you'll readily buy into, and even if they do, pregnancy is pretty much just self harm. if people cared about raising the next generation they'd make it their goal to adopt. it's just selfishness, self harm, and in plenty of cases, giving in to society's expectations of women and what men in general want, if not also pleasing their husbands and bfs. the "wanting to experience motherhood" excuse is often a smokescreen for selfishness and narcissism.

are you like, actually retarded? like a few people doing something historically subversive would ever catch on enough to prevent ALL pregnancy? lmao. 15,000+ births an hour and showing no signs of stopping. talking about it on a Malaysian bread baking board isn't gonna touch that shit, even if more women became more conscious of it globally. even if many women saw it as unappealing, there still would be so many births thanks to religion and anti abortion sentiment, their parents/family, rape, no access to abortion or birth control, etc. but there would ALWAYS be a sizeable portion of women who would have kids for some reason or another, plenty against their will. either way, it really still is physically harmful to women and unethical for countless reasons, chiefly that a child can't consent to being born, let alone born into an uncaring world that's like, literally on fire and losing its lungs right now.

>Do you view any other species that reproduces to be narcissistic also?
this is an impossibly stupid question. as intelligent as animals are, they're not capable of human levels of introspection. you're right, actually. it isn't just narcissism, it's also stupidity. people will reproduce unnecessarily and at their detriment, to the point of existential threat. not only is it not altruistic as people claim, but literally physically harmful and pointless considering the state of the earth. congrats. if you need to justify your behavior by drawing parallels to animals incapable of long term thinking or self awareness, that's really sad.

I'm definitely on the "antinatalist" spectrum, but I think sperging at people about how wrong they are for wanting to have kids is counterproductive and pointless. If people wanna procreate, that's none of our business, just like it's none of theirs that we don't want to.

but having children affects everyone, especially the child. if people can't see that it's fundamentally unethical and unfair because they're forcing a child to exist without being able to secure happiness, healthiness, or safety for their child and obtain consent, they shouldn't be parents. the only thing that they can be sure of is that their child will suffer in one way or another. i disagree. it's definitely a choice that affects many. and anyways, it's harmful to the mother. people don't talk about the lasting effects of pregnancy and childbirth.

I live in a country where the benefits for single mothers are pretty generous compared to others. For years young women would get pregnant as soon as they left school, even if the had a bf they'd keep him a secret to secure benefits. They'd have a minimum 2 kids to secure the nicest free housing .. and lately that bubble has burst.

The housing benefits are being cut for everyone and there's a shortage of properties. Now all the newspapers are full of sob stories where women are living in emergency accommodation (hotel rooms) with multiple kids, long term, and that's the kids shitty life. It's also why homeless people without kids will never get help because those moms get priority over them and the government is paying 12 month long hotel bills cos these moms won't work or even try

You can't obtain consent from a child and that's an entirely stupid concept. I do agree that you should plan ahead and have a safe and financially secure home to raise them in.

I agree with you. When I think about all the reasons someone wants to have a child they are usually asinine.

A few years back I frequented a forum that had gossip-y threads on local cows and one of them seemed a bit unnecessarily mean and obsessed, given that the supposed cow wasn't very milky.
Now that discussion has moved to a local chan where you can see thread-specific poster IDs if you have a paid account. The posters themselves don't seem to realize that and it's just amusing to see that it's just 1-3 people pretending to be a much bigger crowd, they answer themselves and double post etc. so I'm assuming its a vendetta of sorts, just boggles my mind that they have kept that up for years when the cow herself is boring as shit.

Met some woman on a popular FB group for my city and talked a bit since she’s moving here next year. She started oversharing to me really early on and has made some nutty posts. I kind of want to keep her as a FB friend just to see the bizarre things she says, but I also kinda just wanna nip it in the bud cause she seems a little cuckoo.

it has always amazed me that anachans are so willing to post body checks of themselves in underwear or nude online and be cool with it. even back when the phenomenon took off, maybe they felt safer because it wasnt such a large thing? but now with instagram, people are just too stupid to leave off their personal info so now they basically stick their nudes out there just because they want confirmation that they are doing just fine with their issues.

So I got my wisdom teeth removed about 2 or 3 weeks ago, and while I can eat normally, I cannot open my mouth very wide. I already had a small fucking mouth so I worry how this will affect my BJ giving capabilities as well as dentist appointments.

I saw "Disconnect" a few months ago and I really liked it. There was this scene where a camboy is talking to a woman about his job and she says something like "why would you sell yourself??".

So he starts asking her how much would she accept for fucking a homeless/hobo guy. She settled on 5 million (?) and he smiled saying "everybody has a price" (pic related).

Would you accept the money? Any amount is valid. Do you think you have a price?

PS: There was a girl I asked this question who said "are you implying homeless guys are gross????". I keked too hard when she asked that, I guess she wanted to be ~uwu smart and understanding~.

A lot of them thought that their bodies weren't sexualized because they lacked any curve aka what they consider as fat. Maybe they thought they were truly just in a competition with other women to be thinnest.

What they didn't account for is male pedophiles and how they are extremely attracted to frail bodies that have been stunted to look little. And they know just how to manipulate and neg women who are terrified of gaining weight too.

I only get annoyed when people use "grown ass" in context of talking about someone relatively young, say early 20s.
I don't really consider people true adults until they're established and in their 30s. It's really stupid to be so harsh on people who for the most part are finally finishing their educations, are figuring out their living situations, and working on relationships. There's ten times as many expectations and responsibilities that young people are expected to have today as opposed to young people 100 years ago and that's a fact.

No. 453813

Sorry for the incoming blogpost but I can kind of relate to that.

I haven't had a friend since I was around 15 and I'm 24 now. I don't know if I would say I don't 'need' friends but I hardly ever think about it anymore and have no desire to try to make any. It's just more comfortable to be alone because it's how I've always been as an adult. I don't have a great life or anything and am pretty sad but most of my negative feelings stem from career failures and being ugly/inferior, not from not having friends. Although it's probably all related. The main negative thing is that I feel like I'm emotionally stunted from not having normal friendships/relationships, so if I ever tried again it would be hard to form bonds.

Even if someone doesn't need friends or prefers being alone I think they would still benefit from having friends. It just seems like part of being a well adjusted human being. Basically what I'm saying is that eventually you get so used to not having any that it feels like you don't need any because you've made it this far without any.

No. 453851

I'm kind of jealous of you. A larger reason I felt suicidal in the past is because no one wanted to be my friend. Now I have made more friends and I feel better, but I'm always worried about how I'm liked and how I will maintain friendships in the future. I also feel like I am spending tons of money and effort on maintaining friendships as a result. Again, I just feel so jealous of people who say they don't need friends.

Wholesome anon, I agree. Although I've always been sort of radfem without actually knowing what it was, I repressed those feelings because I got shunned when I shared my views when younger. To see an entire website with threads dedicated to women who've observed the same or similar experiences to me is such a relief, and has added so much more confidence in myself to move away from the dogma I grew up in, relying on a man.

I had a glucose screening test this morning to see if I have preggo diabetes. You basically have to fast for 12 hours and then they'll make you drink this disgusting glucose syrup drink, after that you'll just sit in the waiting room area for a couple hours and they'll run some blood tests every hour.
I drank the nasty sugary shit, sat down, started seeing black and almost passed out, ended up projectile vomiting all over myself and the other people in the waiting room. Obviously couldn't continue the test so I decided to go to eat something so I could go home without passing out.
Went to McDonalds, ended up throwing up on myself and my tray twice and had to call my bf to get me. I also said "you too!" to the waitress when she told me to enjoy my meal.

Me and some friends were talking about how we feel about boyfriends watching porn, and one who's gay started going on about how it's natural and said she hasn't met a single guy who doesn't enjoy it. She also said girls who are against it are way too up-tight and just wrong.
I got annoyed at that, so I was like "Aren't you a lesbian? Stay in your lane" half-jokingly. Everyone went silent, then she said "Isn't that sad? The lesbian knows more about men than you", and I just responded "Evidently not" and someone just changed the subject before it got too heated. Things were kind of tense after that.
One of our mutual friends later texted me saying that she thought the "stay in your lane" thing was fucked up and I should apologize for the sake of peace, but I didn't reply. I don't see anything wrong with what I said.
She doesn't date men. Who the fuck is she to tell us what we should put up with when it comes to them? I do kind of wish I hadn't said that, but just gone full pink pill, told her porn actively harms women, anyone who supports it is disgusting, and to fuck off with her libfem bullshit. But I don't think anyone in the group would've supported me on that, they don't know much about this kind of thing and a lot of them are also libfems.

I can't "this" enough. She was being a huge bitch, much moreso than you. Lesbians very rarely have to deal with pornsickness in their partner and my guess is she's never even seen enough porn to know how horrifically abusive and cruel to women it is. I think you should apologize for saying it so harshly, but also point blank tell her she also needs to apologize for dismissing your feelings on a subject she actually DOESN'T know anything about like she thinks. Explain that while "stay in your lane" was a mean way to put it, she doesn't know what it's like to date a man who regularly looks at porn. Explain to her how it negatively impacts your sex life tremendously: men having issues with getting hard or cumming, men expecting/pressuring for things you don't want to do, needing to hurt women to be aroused, thinking women should look like blow up dolls, etc. Not to mention how it's an industry fueled by desperate women selling their bodies in the most degrading ways.

My best friend sleep talks a lot. Once when we were roommates in college, she said the freakiest shit. It was late at night and she had already gone to bed, the only light on was my desk lamp and I was working on an assignment when she suddenly laughed. I thought she was awake so I said "what?" since she sounds so clear when she sleep talks that she sounds awake, but she didn't answer. Then suddenly she said "why's there a child in here?" Absolutely freaked me the fuck out.

I asked her about it the next morning and she said she had a dream where she was in a classroom teaching some kids, but had to change in the classroom for some reason? They moved the kids out so she was supposed to be alone, but one kid got in and that's why she asked lol. Usually it's harmless nonsensical thing, but this one time really freaked me out.

You're absolutely in the right.
What would we say to gay men being opinionated about women? That they should shut it because it's none of their business.
So why should a lesbian be allowed to give you unsolicited "advice" when it comes to relationships with men - something she has zero knowledge about? She was basically backstabbing you by trying to teach you how to be a good little straight woman.
Your friends are likely only trying to fish for woke points by being on the side of the lgbtblahblah "victim", no normal woman would be okay with her partner jerking it to others. Saying "all" of them do that also shows how lowly she thinks of men, including you and your friends boyfriends.

Is it just me, or does a lot of the dancing in KPop seem super stiff? Especially with female idols.

I didn’t really notice it till obnoxious armys on Twitter started spamming literally every tag with gifs of it. But I was watching a video of Normani dancing at the VMAs last night and she looks way more fluid and skillful with her moves than most of the Kpop artists I’ve seen. I’m not saying Kpop idols are bad dancers but rather the choreography seems to be lacking. Like they just move their arms and hips around and call it a day.

As someone who did competitive dance as a youngin, the choreography IS lacking. Shake hips, do a hair flip, add some arms. Walk from one formation to the next.

And one of the comments on the article said her philosophy was to "create more, consume less" and it just really stayed with me because it's so true. I find myself more happy creating things like drawings or stories than mindlessly consuming media for hours on end, especially if it's low-brow.

I'm so close to paying off my student loans. I'm so grateful my parents don't make me pay rent or even my own cell phone bill, so every paycheck I can afford to put half of it towards my loans. I calculated how much I should have left by the end of this year and it'll be about $600 if everything goes smoothly. I want to ask my parents to just help me pay that off (or even just half of it) as a Christmas present to me, but I know they hate just giving me money instead of actual presents. It's not that much so I'll probably just blow a whole paycheck on it or dig into my savings to finish it off. It doesn't really matter if I pay it off at the end of this year or not, but it was a personal goal for me to finish and enter 2020 with zero debt and I'm determined to do it!!

My highschool spanish teacher passed away about two weeks ago. My highschool was super small so everybody knew everybody. In my years there, I took multiple classes with the same teachers year after year because that's just how it was, and you get really close with them. I only got to have her as my spanish teacher for one year so I wasn't the closest to her, but she knew who I was anyway even before I was in her class. It's just… so sad. Everyone in my highschool felt like family, so it feels like losing really distant family. Knowing that she was probably planning out lessons and now that her new kids won't be able to experience the whirlwind of a person that she is makes me sad.

Her wake is this Saturday. I feel weird going since I wasn't that close to her, but I had a dream last night where I went. I saw some friends there and we started crying, absolutely bawling our eyes out.

I wonder if I have BPD. I recently saw someone bring up the term "splitting." I looked it up and that's exactly what I experience with my close friends and bf. I go from enjoying being around them to hating them very quickly in short amounts of time. On occasion small things like them not smiling or saying thank you when I do something for them set me off. I never take it out on anyone, except for going silent as to not hurt anyone, but sometimes I feel very bitter and angry and I don't know why. I have good self-esteem and I love myself, but if I feel like I'm being taken advantage of it (even when logically I know I'm not) it pisses me off

Hate to break it to you but if you get that insecure about not being told thank you or feeling like you're being taken advantage of even if there's no evidence to suggest that you are, then you don't have good self esteem.

Obviously I don't have the whole story (and I'm not a doctor anyways) but you can have symptoms of BPD without actually having it (just for example, having a bad self esteem along with anger issues and mood swings doesn't automatically mean you have BPD) and splitting can sometimes be a stand-alone "ego preservation" mechanism and it most likely is if you don't have any other of the life-damaging symptoms of BPD, either way talk to a professional.

After having short-ish hair (a bit shorter than shoulder length) for a super long time I decided to let it grow out for a change since I was curious to see what I'd look like with long hair. Now after months of waiting it's finally grown out to about the length I wanted it to be… and I want to chop it all off again. I'm so conflicted, on one hand I loved my short hair and I feel like it "suits" me and my personality more, but I've also gotten used to myself with longer hair and am afraid I'm gonna regret it and will have to wait forever for it to grow out again. Goddamn it.

I feel this so hard. The thing that's helped me is looking back at pictures of myself with various hair lengths over the years (even minutely different) and see which one makes me feel more like "me." I always go back and forth between growing mine out and keeping it shoulder-length (and whether or not I want to have bangs), but then I went back and saw myself with shoulder-length hair and I was like "yep, that me."
I think that you're focusing more on the inconvenience of having to grow it out in the future and not focusing on whether or not you genuinely like your hair at that length. Yeah, it may suck and take a while if you hypothetically want to grow it out again in the future, but does that outweigh the comfort of having the hair length you love?

There's a weird amount of posts about height here lately but I mean anyone super skinny, fat, short, big nosed, whatever gets jokes or comments

The amount of incels, heightcels and r/smalldickproblems posters obsessing over one physical trait and complaining about the world hating them..yeah we're all judgy fucks but most of us have one thing we hate about our body too

Reading r/smalldickproblems today I saw a post mentioning that women who've survived cervical cancer can sometimes prefer small penises for medical/pain reasons.. the literal 2 inch dick posters whinged by saying they don't want 'damaged' women..

The same video with a tall man bullying the hell out of a short girl doesn't exist though - and never will. There wouldn't even exist enough short girls "slurs" and jokes for that.

It just really annoys me, that while taller men are probably cruel to short guys and short/average women reject them despite not necessarily being taller than short guys, the same short guys decide to take their anger out on tall women instead. As if we didn't get enough shit from others already.

It's strange how when women feel insecure we hate ourselves or compare ourselves to other women. But when men feel insecure they project hate onto men, women, everyone as if it's the whole worlds fault that they're not 3 inches taller or hung

nothing strange about it, tall men can shit on anyone more easily, so short men just shit on who they can shit on easily, women, and women can shit on eachother easily so that's what we do.

it's terrible but it makes sense. i personally go out of my way to call people out regardless because i couldn't care less about male power, it really pisses them off when they think they're at the top of the food chain.

These are just my whiny first world problems, but I've been thinking about them lately.I never thought I'd care about or even really notice the quality or cleanliness of a store like Walmart or a dollar store until I moved. I moved into a nicer home in a much more poor community and I miss how much nicer and cleaner everything was. And how potholes would actually be fixed in a timely fashion. My home is newer and nicer, but I think I should have stayed in my old place in the richer community. We don't even have sidewalks here. I guess you really don't know what you got until it's gone.

I had a dream one of the younger coworkers (he's absolutely 19+) ran through a turnstile with only a robe on, but he had a massive thick cock, so in the dream I had the 3rd person perspective of me covering my own face in absolute shock. We had these chats after (still in the dream) about how he always thought I was intimidating, but we both crushed and wanted to wreck eachother.

Then today he comes over to ask a basic question and all I can think about is if he has a giant dick, and I'm looking at his toned arms.

I've had the opposite experience; I've always assumed most stores were dirty until I left my town for the first time and realized how nice it is everywhere else, lol. My area used to be nothing but desert and trailers as a kid, plus a small shopping center. Now that wealthy people are building out here, it's hard to move around during certain times of the day due to the population increase and the cost of things have gone up. Thrift stores never have anything anymore because everyone takes it (probably due to the urban outfitters/poshmark culture), so poor mofos like myself have to wear hand-me-downs. On the plus, we have a beautiful sidewalk just for walking with tons of planter and lights, but it took 7 years to build and held up traffic. I miss being from the middle of nowhere. All of our farms and orchards are nearly gone too, replaced with shopping malls and a three Starbucks within a 1/4 mile radius.

That's brutal anon. I'm probably extremely wealthy by those standards. I should be more thankful I live in such a beautiful area, even if I do miss the simpler days of childhood. I plan on moving soon anyway, I can't afford to stay much longer. My childhood friends left years ago. No one can really afford to stay except those on social programs and the people who are funding the construction. The middle class is being driven out. I live two streets away from a house that cost 2 million USD to build. I live in a small cottage type home my parents paid $100k for. To put it roughly, minimum wage is $29k a year here because you rarely get employed full time.

Honestly, there aren't really any jobs here either aside from grocery stores and a bowling alley a few miles away. Most people I know work about a 45 minute to 2 hour drive away in another city.

Men are retarded they don't even like pretty girls they just worship any girl that fits their retarded stereotype even if she's ugly and has bad proportions. The ultimate proof that men like ugly women with retarded proportion is that the "bimbo" look was basically caused by men pressuring women into having extremely big boobs, lips, asses etc. Men are fucking retarded.

Yeah. It feels smaller, because it IS getting smaller, as more and more sites get bought up by the same Google/Amazon/Whatever giants and more and more people use the web while less make their own content. I remember people making their own websites for themselves with Piczo, now people don’t even bother with custom Tumblrs with those fancy themes because everyone has Twitter or Instagram with 0 customization. Like the other anon said it’s sterile and the same shit all the time.

I was born in 97 so I hardly remember life without the internet or a computer but since the mid 2000’s the internet and its culture has changed so much and absorbed other parts of my life I don’t want it to be in (I liked it for fandom things and gaming but now it’s for news, politics, celebrities, jobs, can’t even befriend someone in real life without eventually being given their social media or referencing obnoxious memes when I used to feel like such a cool kid for knowing all muh trollfaces). I think: "there has to be more to life than this" and that thought gives me hope that I can exist without needing to be online all the time. Maybe the poor fucks who were born after 2005 will find some kind of instinct that will make them look beyond the internet that seemingly gives them everything.

It feels really pathetic whenever I reflect on my interactions with friends and discover most of what we say is shit about memes, "oof", "big F" and trying to verbalise reaction images because we forgot how to talk like… whatever came before this. I don’t even feel human. Am I a fucking NPC?

I remember complaining about all of this in another thread. I agree with you, with how society works now you're almost forced to use the internet for basic social interactions even with people you know irl and necessary things like job hunting, paying taxes, the news, etc. I remember as a teen I spent a lot of time making friends with people my age on forums and blogs and I wasn't allowed to have a mobile phone (no smartphones yet at the time) and to go outside so I had a hard time making friends, but now that it's the reverse I feel like I have a hard time meeting new people outside the internet because interactions irl became so different. If you don't have a smartphone with all social media possible good luck keeping up with what your friends and family do because they post everything online and expect you to read and watch everything before having a normal conversation with them irl. Obviously that's an exaggeration since it depends on each person a lot but you get the idea overall. Now if you don't know about minor e-celebrities on tiktok doing some dumb shit again some people are going to act like you forgot who Mariah Carey is.

>now people don’t even bother with custom Tumblrs with those fancy themes because everyone has Twitter or Instagram with 0 customization.

I remember you could customize your twitter profile a little until early 2014 or 2015, you could add a banner and a background. People didn't like it at all but they don't care anymore.

I think a lot of this has to do with how everyone uses smartphones for everything now and all the time, and even before that it started with fb being accessible to everyone and not just college students and graduates. Everything is less niche now, and I don't remember myspace being as mainstream as tumblr is for example the actual equivalent for frogs like me would be more like comparing tumblr and skyblog, they're both blogging platforms but tumblr is just used to reblog other people's shit by most users, unlike lj, myspace, skyblog, etc..

I was having a good day, until I washed my hair and inspected my scalp thouroughly because I saw a grey hair.
Well, turns out I have many now, too many to rip them out like I used to do until now. I'm only 24, goddammit. And I'm a brunette. And my parents didn't go grey so early. Why the fuck is it happening? I really didn't need this shit too, on top of all the things I have to take care of. I already have problematic skin and meh hair, plus other stuff, and I'm broke.
For the moment they can only be seen if I do a scalp check because they're within the deepest layer of hair, but you can still see some if you look with attention under daylight.

I hung out with an old coworker last week. We haven't seen each other in months, and now work two very different jobs, and I missed hanging out with him so much.

Aside from my best friend that I met in college, I haven't met someone that I can love and cherish so much in a platonic/familial way- much less a man. He's so respectful and genuinely doesn't make moves on me. He'll give me bear hugs and kiss me on the head when we say goodbye like I'm his little sister. I wrote him (and some other coworkers) a card thanking him for always having my back at work, and he sent me a really heartfelt text when he saw it. It's been maybe about 4 months since we saw each other, we just went out to watch a movie and then walked around. I missed his company so much. He said he got me a penguin bracelet for no reason other than he was out somewhere and it made him think of me (not sure why lol). I can't wait until we can hang out again.

I think the worst part is how all of this has affected my attention span. I remember reading 100s of books a year as a kid and I was really big into watching films. I'd go to the library/rental place and just pick whatever off the shelf. I even remember playing video games for hours trying to complete one specific level. Once the internet came along, I was making loads of online friends.

Fast forward to college and I really struggled to even read one paragraph for class. I don't have the patience to watch a 2 hour film or read a book without reading reviews to see if I'll enjoy it first. I don't have the energy to get to know people anymore and tbh whenever I do get to know someone beyond a surface level (or referencing memes, as you said lol), I end up falling out with them. Maybe it's all a symptom of getting older but I'm kind of jealous of the generation older than me because they still enjoy going to the cinema or reading or painting while me and my friends just watch old vines and get drunk when we meet up.

Man anon, I loved reading this haha. This is pretty much exactly what I was thinking about the other day. I love browsing forums and such but I feel like they've gotten so niche as social media has taken over everything and that's where the majority of discussions take place. I just really dislike it's expected and encouraged nowadays that you have to put your whole life online, like your job, friends, convos, photos, keeping everyone updated etc. It's so unhealthy in the long run. The kids growing up today are fucked because their dependence of the internet is only gonna get worse. Like before we could get on by easily without many things that have been introduced in the modern age, why do we feel like we suddenly can't live without them? I feel like we're getting tricked into thinking we need this shit in our lives when it's only poison

Also, this is gonna sound so snobby af, but I hate the way people use the internet as an excuse to just talk so stupidly. Like they use certain words and ways of talking and phrases etc that drive me up the wall and make them look so moronic. Even worse is that people say this shit in real life, it's so embarrassing.

I finally found that other graphic which was more relevant which I would have attached in that original post. This shit is real. It’s a little outdated since the most recent year is 2014 and I’m curious as to what the internet looks like now. Probably even worse.

>>457283
I can absolutely relate to that. I spent so much time online as a teenager because I was socially awkward but now real life interactions have to involve the internet when I want to practice socialising like a normal human being. Hey, if the internet has done at least 1 good thing today it’s letting a frog and a bong talk without going to war.

I thank my RPG games and older-era internet for teaching me to stay inquisitive and search things out in person rather than turn to the ~magic box~ and ask it questions it will try to shill products on. Page 1 of Google search results is basically a glorified ad list. Hey Leeloo, you wanna know what war is? Well you’d better look it up in a textbook because the computer just wants to conscript me and tell me _ politician is terrible because he looked ugly while eating some food in a candid once! (Yeah, that was real.)

>>457423
I definitely recall a study out there about heavy internet usage inducing ADD-like symptoms in people, something about their neuroplasticity? I know having Tumblr sandblasted my working memory (and everything else) to shit when, before, the internet was more of a digital encyclopaedia I’d spend evenings reading articles/stories from. And it’s sad to me that hardly anyone questions it. I’m acquaintances with older people who basically roll over and bow down to the magical search engine that can tell me everything, and how "wow, technology has come so far". Except it’s still a tool, one that can be misused or just plain break. Why keep in touch with whoever when you can see how they are on Facebook? Except I don’t want to do that (and I don’t have Fuckbook anyway), I want to physically meet them, talk to them, walk around the street for some fresh air with them. And this is coming from someone who is fighting agoraphobia.

And why take my phone in the bath with me (with all the risks) when I can take my physical diary and a pen with me? A book is just as good and I can decorate it with things, the physical act of writing forces my brain to focus on one thought at a time and not ADHD around, and since I am very privacy-minded a physical diary circumvents all the problems with my personal life being stored as data on a cloud (aka: someone else’s computer).

>>457447
One of the differences I remember most is how it was drilled into us to never give our name, phone numbers or address online to strangers. Now it’s mandatory to give a phone number if you want to sign up anywhere. I don’t know anyone younger than me but those YouTube channels ‘led’ by tweens gives me a bad feeling. Did we not learn that fame isn’t everything? Some random person’s son or daughter should not be a public figure with several thousand people following them. I can’t worry about it too much but I question if anyone who’s internet era was 2012+ has the critical thinking to avoid click bait or understand the ways in which content is only being shoved in your face to keep you occupied and them monetised. Things are a lot more sophisticated now, it’s not like a page will be obvious back-alley bait trying to steal your credit card when it’s a legitimate company that controls everything you see until "hey I guess I’ll buy that minecraft T shirt for my son after all, he loves it!"

I posted a while back on one of the ot threads about how frustrated I was about sucking at games and how I could barely make it through botw. A kind anon told me to just avoid fighting monsters and complete shrines to get more hearts and stamina so I could stand a chance against them, so that's what I've been doing, and I've really started to have a lot more fun with the game.

I'm really terrible and I'm sure if I had someone watching me play they'd be ridiculously frustrated by the roundabout and stubborn ways I go about climbing up a tower or getting anywhere, but I'm having a lot of fun exploring the map and thinking up stupid but unconventional ways to make my way somewhere. Actually I'm just really glad to be using my switch more because it's my first game system that I bought brand new for a little under full price, so it felt like a real waste that it was just sitting in my room collecting dust.

college anons who like ramen; I'd seriously recommend giving the nissin raoh a try, that or the sapporo ichiban brand (the original is the best imo, they also have the "chow mein" dish which is more like a soy saucy fried noodle dish). buy one pack locally if you can find it, and if you like it, it's well worth that you can buy it in bulk for cheaper online.

was stingy on instant ramen for awhile but the more "authentic" stuff from the asian aisle of the grocery store brought me back bc it's way better than the nasty 25 cent shit. the broth in this miso pack is particularly good.

Everyone has Snapchat, a Discord and whatnot and you're shit out of luck getting an interaction from people if you don't have these. The sites I used to visit back in the mid 2000s are long dead.

We’re not missing a lot, I can promise that. It’s only a few moments of being shocked and outraged at whatever e-drama is happening when I’m getting older every day and I want to grow and learn stuff with my time on this earth. Which, by the way, our peasant ancestors coped just fine on without being connected to a device telling them to be obsessed with some random fuck the next realm over who’s cancelling his cobbler for making him the wrong shoes. Social media is an actual chore to use. Those guides on how to grow and maintain a follower base that tell you to post in certain times of the day seem ridiculous to me, it’s practically a job for 0 satisfaction. Instead of working on their ‘brand’, people should work on their personalities and things wouldn’t feel so vapid and manufactured.

Sometimes I wonder about how being off social media would affect dating because I’m burned from online dating and want to meet someone who doesn’t know what a bloody meme is but the chances of that is 0. I’m a little nerdy & into computers but I’d rather date someone who doesn’t share that hobby because whew lad, the amount of pathetic guys who misplace all their self worth into their e-peen and streaming/gaming career at the cost of their hygiene and social skills! One of my friends talks about how he got pretty big in DOTA tournaments and my eyes just glaze over because it’s not something to admire, in what way is straining yourself at a desk clicking on things in a room with other sweaty men supposed to be impressive? The only thing impressive about that was the pay check which he saw less than 10% of as the sharks took their cut.

Anyway, I dislike Discord in particular because of its nature as closed off little rooms. I remember fooling around on Chatango and IRC but all the Discord groups feel so bland and cliquey for some reason, and there’s always one asshole mod. I don’t chat with that kind of slang either and it’s discomforting having to change the way I speak to attempt to connect with someone who only has "mood" to say to me. Yes, and…????

I can’t even remember any sites I went on before 2012, Quizilla and Piczo? Neopets is a cheat answer. I miss those weird but aesthetically pleasing ‘shrines’ people made for their favourite characters, those were standalone sites that were like wikis all of their own for just one character with some fanart and stories to go with it. But now I’m just getting nostalgic.

On a funny sidenote. In Latino dubs southeners hillbilly type characters are always translated to have this thick mexican accents, sometimes even when the dub is not made by mexicans.

Has anyone heard of Kris Gage who writes "essays" on Medium? Apart from her fluffy "writing" about MBTI (bullshit, more concisely), she seems like a Cool Girl type and that's pretty frustrating, since she's a 30-something.

For example: https://krisgage.com/2017/07/17/friendship-is-a-toxic-waste-of-time/
Some points, such as some friendships being "codependent" and "toxic", do ring true, but it seems like she's just so vehemently against friendship. Glossing over her points, it seems like she's never had healthy relationships with good boundaries, with people who share common interests.

Like goddamn, this passage makes me snort out loud:
> I rode a motorcycle cross-country in the middle of Midwest winter. I went from making six digits, then owning my own business, to being a bartender. I’m an attractive woman in her early 30’s and marriage is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities.

I got really excited about the idea of actually going taking rock climbing classes and signing up for a rock climbing gym and doing it regularly. I did some more digging and found a gym closer to me, and while it's a bit pricey, rock climbing is one of those things that's always been in my head as a kid that would be super fun. I've only gotten the chance to do it maybe 2 or 3 times in my entire life as a fun activity as part of something rather than going to a dedicated gym for it, but fuck I'm so excited and want to do it but at the same time I'm scared about going alone (none of my friends want to do it/are willing to pay the price for something like this lol).

I feel bad that I keep putting off finding time for a gym and working out (went from retail to office job so I'm not as active as I used to be), but I think starting rock climbing would be a fun new hobby that would do me some mental and physical good. It's one of those things where I truly think it's a fun activity and unlike everything else I've ever picked up in my life "for fun" I really don't care about being the best or impressing people, I just wanna get on this fucking wall and climb it so bad.

I might sign up for a class/one month trial membership for this Sunday, or maybe next week in case something comes up with my parents this weekend. I've worked out all the possible issues (membership would be worth it (vs day pass cost) in about 4 visits; I can only make time for it on the weekends but wake up early even on the weekends so I can go in the morning when it's slightly less crowded; there's free yoga classes and a free weight area included so I can do that if the walls are too busy or I don't feel like climbing that day). I'm just rambling and all I need to do is bite the bullet because I know I can do it, I just get myself so worked up for no reason whenever I start something new.

i miss the channel themes so much, i remember how i spent hours on mspaint drawing hamtaro characters onto a template i found on deviantart
there's so little options to customize your channel nowadays, it's boring

I'm so fucking sad. I was so upset when they had to put Oakley to sleep, and now Shelby's passed too.

I used to watch that channel years ago but totally forgot about it. The lady in the videos always seemed really sweet. Sad to see them both go.

They got a new husky pup after Oakley but something in me just couldn't bear to watch them anymore. I've been seeing them on my instagram feed and I was hoping Shelby would get better since she's had some health issues in the past, but fuck, Oakley just passed away last year. I'm so sad. The couple that runs the channel really are sweet.

My fiance proposed to me about a month ago with a dummy ring and is letting me pick out my own ring myself. We kinda live in bumfuck nowhere without any fine jewelry stores to access easily, so I was planning on ordering online. I fell in love with a custom ring I made on a site, then saw how suspiciously cheap it was and investigated reviews. They have overwhelmingly positive ones (that feel almost fake) but the critical reviews seem to think they don't use real diamonds/gems or use bad cuts.

I guess what I'm asking is, anyone know of a reputable place to buy an engagement ring online? Budget is roughly 2k USD. I just want something sparkly and elegant, not necessarily the most expensive looking.

Consider a moissanite ring, similar quality to diamonds and virtually indistinguishable but much cheaper. Diamonds are a fucking racket with artificially inflated value thanks to advertising campaigns.

im not sure but i love going to jared or kays and seeing the horribly occluded, poor quality diamonds getting sold for a million times over what they'd reasonably be worth based on clarity and color or hearing from women whose men dropped like 4k on a SI2 P diamond. it's all a scam. i prefer not to have the price of a 2003 corolla on my left hand, so i cant recommend sites, but just learn about gemstone quality and make your selection based on that, because no one ever actually seems to when they shop brick and mortar.

Interesting, is coloured moissanite a thing? (Since I was interested in getting a gemstone or semi precious stone in my ring.) Will have to look into this when I'm home from work.

>>458906
Yeah I guess I should just educate myself since it'll ideally be the ring I wear for the rest of my life.

I think I've only browsed those threads around 2 times, but thank you so, so much. A lot of what I read there I was able to apply recently when I was helping a friend through a bad breakup with one of the most delusional scrotes I've encountered irl. You dun good, nonnie.

Congrats, anon (and thank you). Those threads have been a light in the darkness for so many of us, even as some people (who may or may not have even been the intended audience for this whole site) were crying for their deletion.
They've been such a huge help for me, and others, as you can see.
