Basically an unconventional looking model was in a Gucci's 100 most beautiful women list thing. Scrotes REEEE'd and bullied the girl, wokes started writing papers on beauty standards.

Does anyone just feel weird around their family members? Not totally unpleasant but that they're rude?

Recently I had some cousins come visit my family and it just felt weird. It just seems really hard to have a real conversation with them. It's kind of judgey, but I don't understand how they only seem to be interested in making a bunch of money and then buying top-shelf alcohol or Lululemon. To each their own?

However, they never ask me how I have been either or try to get to know me. I feel kind of slighted by that. Whenever I see them never seem interested in seeing me, only in seeing my parents. I guess they're not being hurtful on purpose, but it feels rude. My cousins on the other side of the family don't act that way towards me.

I'm from a small country where (young) people speak English quite well. Most internet spaces in my native language have died out… forums I used to go on, games etc. they're extremely slow or completely inactive. I've watched my favourite prominent forum going from being very active when I was a teenager to a few messages a month nowadays. Most people here have moved on the English speaking spaces, and so have I.

Yes, you can definitely notice this.
When I post before lunch there's seemingly barely anybody online, during the afternoon it's still rather slow, you often don't get anybody engaging with you, but when I check in the morning and go back to whatever I posted the day before, there usually are a couple replies (or likes or reposts or whatever, this doesn't only apply to lc), the reason likely being that during the time I'm asleep it's afternoon/evening in the US, meaning main posting hours for Americans.

I've thought about it, but it doesn't really line up with it. I am on the pill but I take it continuously some months, so my cycles vary in length between 28 to up to 56 days.

I don't think it's related to my physical health, it's more like I "slip up", procrastinate, start stressing out like crazy, spiral down and become a mess that's afraid of her own shadow. Then I pull myself up by the bootstrap, realize things are not so bad and fix everything. It's like a semi-regular mini-depression I suppose.

I have this aswell, I just got out of a "mini-depression" last week. But I suspect I've had (real) depression in the past and once you've been depressed you'll always be more vulnerable to becoming it again, so I've always assumed/suspected it was because of that. I have no clue to break the cycle but I have noticed that when I'm more productive, eat better and excersise I'm less likely to spiral down and when I do I get out quicker.

I don’t think a guy will care, especially if you’re financially responsible.

You could probably get to be good at portraits but not other stuff, and you’d probably progress at getting a better at drawing overall a lot slower if you don’t draw other things.

Probably depends on the guy. I think it’s common for men to get wrapped up in traditional gender roles and feel like their self worth is dependent on their ability to fulfill those roles. Other men would step back and realize that’s stupid, though.

Basically a man not liking being the lesser earner in a partnership is inverse-corrected with maturity/independent thinking/healthy self-actualization.

Have you ever given a man who randomly approached you on the street your number? I always find it so creepy and bizarre when they do that and feel like surely it must not actually work, like who would want to give their personal details to a total stranger they know nothing about.

United States. Specifically silicon prairie part of Texas; I went to a really elitist high school and stem uni, and most guys I know expect the women they are with to be on the same level as them. If you want a man who can provide then that means you’re either a golddigga or too dumb to get a ~real job~ and take care of yourself.

>>622291
True, I’ve known a lot of guys who make bank but then do stupid shit to waste their money on booze and payments on cars they didn’t need, plus have student loans on top of that. Hence why the female is expected to take care of herself.

I was approached a few months ago and asked for my phone number after a couple mins of small talk. I was polite but said no and then made excuses to walk in the opposite direction. As I tried to walk away he followed me and repeated over and over "why not though, why not?"

That man has no idea how much anxiety that caused me both that day and in the months since. I fucking hate him. It was first thing in the morning, I had no coffee in me and little sleep, I already have an anxiety problem so I would usually play deaf or just tell men to go away immediately but that day I didn't.

I don't know whether to blame those youtube pickup artists telling men that's normal. In my town it isn't. At 8am it fucking isn't. He seemed older than me too. Most people look at me and think I'm lesbian. I should've said I was but again I was half asleep that morning.

I remember back when I was 16 and at dentist because of braces, waiting for my turn in a tiny corridor next to a window some very old man approached me. He was either my grandpas age (in 70s) either in 60-mid 60s. I was standing next to a window in this small coridor because it was the only place that had mobile data. He approached to me, said hello, i said hello back thinking he will keep going down (he was coming from 3rd floor) and do his buisness but he started casually talking to me, staring with that "He wants to make a friend", to which I would say that I do not need any, where he would STILL keep making me feel awkward by pushing this damn small talk about "the weather" that still felt weird, then he would ask me about my age, and again ask me to be friends to which I would refuse, however I did stated my age, thinking that'll make him go away. But it did fucking not. He literally started asking for my number, and kept staring at me and standing, while asking for it abojt 3 times, all smiling even though my only response would always be "Sorry, I do not want to do that" and giggle awkwardly.

In the end he left only because my mother came over, asking if everything's okay and I left to doctor with her. I do not even know what would happen if she wasn't there. I am happy I did not give it to him.

It's been 5 years and this situation still creeps me out. All I wanted to do was mind my buisness with my phone, talking to my friends and preparing myself for exams.

This. They're counting on you being taken by surprise with your guard down and not wanting to be rude. If you give a polite no thank you, he'll want to know why. If you say you have a boyfriend, "what, your boyfriend doesn't let you have friends?"

It's all just to continue the conversation and turn it around on you being the rude one if you walk away/don't give your number. If he wasn't trying to pull this trick, he'd just offer his number instead.

Anons with cats how much does your cat eat? how many times a day?

My cat seems to eat a lot, usually he eats wet food around 5 times a day. We didn't have a cat before and he is a outdoors cat which adopted us and decided we are him humans. So he usually only comes to get feed, sleep or get pet.

No. 622801

>>622793
Cats are not supposed to eat that often but they'll surely try to persuade you they do. Since your cat used to be an outdoor cat, he has the outdoor cat's survival mentality that every meal may be his last for a while so better eat as much as possible. Once the cat is more domesticated it realizes there always will be food provided and there's no need to worry and eat more "just in case". Ideally you should feed him only in the morning and in the evening, with water available all day.

It's kinda weird and unnecessary to change a character's skintone that much, yeah. There was nothing wrong with the character's original color, to be honest, and you can see from the dark brown of her sweater (and from other character designs on the show, like Batgirl, on a quick Google search) they weren't just shying away from all dark colors.
I also don't get why they would change her eye color. I don't really see the point in that. Is it really even meant to be the same character?

Like they give you a look, or tease you but accept it as part of who you are or just a quirk. I always tell people first though, before they come over, so I would advise doing that.

Both of you were young and didn't know any better', but I felt like the 14 year old boy should've known better than to try to get his 12 year old cousin into giving him a hj and that, although the difference between 12 and 14 is 2 years, I feel like there's quiet a mental difference between, particularly regarding the topic of sex. Am I being unreasonable in thinking this?

Each to their own. I like reddit for it's fandoms sometimes, I like seeing fanart and discussion (before the gatekeeper incels come in) but the only time I accessed a more serious, emotional support board I could tell it was full of people lying for internet points and trolls offering crappy 'advice' that was just mocking actual sufferers of abuse. So personally I'd only recommend reddit if you want to talk about a show you're into or a band you like and then get some real therapy for deep issues you want to get off your chest. But with that being said: my experience is only my own and maybe you'd find some super incredible helpful subreddits that would change your life. Idk.

There is an age difference and also the woman didn't at the time know what was happening, that is very disturbing. Kids assaulting other kids is a legit thing. You wouldn't brush off a kid for hurting animals. Even if it was a one off thing and not a pattern, it is still concerning.

I agree sort of.

It was shitty of the boy of course and he probably did know, at 14, he was making her do something sexual. I can't imagine a 14 y/o boy not having looked at porn or experimented with touching themself at some point before so I don't doubt he knew what would happen when she gave him a hand job.

HOWEVER I'm not entirely sure a 14 year old has the mental capacity to know that it's wrong to request sexual favours like- they might be too young to grasp what consent is and even what constitutes an act as being sexual. Like, the same way children under 16 (or 18 depending where you live) aren't legally considered able to give consent because they don't understand, I feel like this boy may not have understood what he was asking for and just sought out what he knew felt good.

Obviously it was still wrong of him and it should never have happened, and I'm very sorry to the 12 Y/o girl who this happened to. This is why we need sex ed in schools.

I disagree anon. Sounds like he asked his 12 year old cousin because there was a power imbalance and he figured he could goad her into doing it. He was likely counting on her to not say anything because they’re family and taking advantage of her inexperience.

14 year olds might not have a great idea of consent, but I don’t buy the “he didn’t know it was wrong” thing. Is he also asking his teacher or kids at school for sexual favors, or just his cousin who he can convince to keep it a secret?

Melatonin anons: I know a lot about this because melatonin is a big part of my field of study, not being condescending or anything. Our melatonin comes mostly from our pineal gland and aids our bodies in ways a lot of us don’t realize, for example it also helps convert the suns rays in our skin into a protective tan rather than a sunburn. A lack of melatonin is also linked to cancer, ie how longtime nightshift workers are mire at risk. Since synthetic melatonin is incredibly cheap to create and was just as cheap even when it was made using the pineal gland tissues from horses and pigs, it isn’t studied, picked up by conglomerates, or marketed to it’s full potential because there’s no payout from investing in it. Melatonin is very powerful when used properly, but you risk becoming almost immune to it by taking too high of a dose. It’s half-life is just under an hour at best, and the mg your body can’t use will be pushed through your liver and excreted through your urine and saliva. Micro-dosing melatonin has many benefits that you can’t receive while taking high doses. It’s in the same vein as the supplement myth that’s peddled pretty heavily to America, your body’s functions are just too nuanced.

I bought a bottle of 10mg a while ago and discovered that it totally fucks me up the next day, even if I take it super early like 8pm and go to bed at 9pm and get up at 7am I'm still drowsy all day as if I'd only had 3 hours of sleep. I now snap the tablets in half and have 5mg pills and it's a lot better, I'll try snapping down to 2.5mg quarters. I only use it an average of about once a fortnight, usually in tandem with other stuff like no screens / early night, on nights when I really need to be up and functioning early the next day.

So, to answer the original anon and agree with the other more knowledgeable answers, my anecdotal experience is that a high dosage is counter-productive. Technically I saved a lot of money with these though, they barely cost more than the 1mg tablets but because I'm snapping them into quarters I get 4x the quantity.

I do, I literally can't shut up, always talking in my head. I automatically comment on everything that's happening around me. If I see a cat, I'll hear myself saying some inane bullshit like "hey it's a cat doing cat stuff how cute". Even if I'm just sitting doing nothing, my mind will continue to blab on. I daydream a lot, and will have entire conversations with myself concerning the subject I'm daydreaming about.

The weirdest thing is, when I'm not even daydreaming or thinking about anything, sentences will still keep forming in my mind. They will be nonsense sentences often with nonsense words, like "and if a chrotoblaz underfups, it will be kulpler for tomorrow and juniper". My mind just won't tolerate being blank and does that ridiculous "chat" instead.

I'm deliberately meat-free on mondays, take special care to pay attention to vegetarian options at restaurants if they look tasty, and often buy fake-meat schnitzels/steaks at supermarkets for general shopping. I'm also mildly obnoxious about discussing this with people whenever it happens to come up (and very frequently get a positive "oh, maybe I'll do that too…" reponse). Overall this makes me feel considerably more moral than doing nothing, even if I am still murdering and eating the occasional cow.

Can any dutch anons explain what kind of corona rules exits in the Netherlands? I live next to the dutch border and while myself haven't been shopping in NL since the pandemic started, I've heard that you don't have to wear a mask in shops etc. Only in buses and so on.

You only have to wear masks on public transportation. You also have to keep 1,5m distance from people outside your household. Other than that, the basics: wash your hands, don't go to busy places, if you have any health complaints stay home and get a test, stay home as much as possible etc.

Can confirm most people aren't actually keeping distance or staying home as much as possible though. I went shopping last week and it was busy like normal times, no one was actively trying to keep distance.

I guess it's not "that bad", the intensive cares haven't been overloaded in months.

I think it can be fun using astrology to analyse this phenomenon. I have mercury in Virgo and have a very wordy monologue when I think. I see words before I speak them sort of. I can stumble over people's names because of how their spelt because when I go to say their name I think of what it is, see the word and can fuck it up if it's a weird spelling or not spelt phonetically. This process all takes seconds though.

I've seen quite a few but I think part of the reason it's less common is that for some reason eating meat is kind of considered a 'manly' thing? I think it can make the woman feel less feminine/ the man less masculine kind of like if the woman is taller/ the man is shorter.

No. 624303

Take this with a grain of salt but my theory is
1. From my observations, there's a lot more men who're avid meat lovers than there's woman who're huge meat eaters

2. Woman are more compasionate and caring in general so they're more likely to give up eating animal products.

Therefore there's simply more woman who're vegetarian/vegan than men.

Depends where you are. The field of anthropology is understood a bit different in the US and Europe, in the US ethnology would be a subfield in anthro, in Europe it's more of it's own thing and anthro leans more biological. Might be different again somewhere else.
Whatever your interested in, you can definitely study it though! Evolutionary anthropology encompasses a bunch of things from genetics, paleoanthropology, comparative behavioral studies and psychology, linguistics, archaeology. Basically understanding how humans came to be what they are now. Ethnology it's more studying and describing the societies of different living peoples and goes more into a sociological direction.

i studied this in university, didn't end up being my major but took a year worth of classes in it. im not an expert by any means but this is what i got from it: it's a discipline that can involve a lot of areas of focus such as biology, archaeology and early human culture. think of it as a way of understanding early hominids in the context of their evolution. how they may have lived, ate, acted, talked, walked, etc. some people may do this solely with dna and hapla groups etc. etc, whereas other can sit on the more speculative, sociological side and look at archaeological sites and objects (this was me lol). we can extract dna and look deep into the earth to see what the climate looked like in the past and what the hominids consumed. look at small markings on animal bones to deduce what type of stone or flint tool was used to extract the meat and cartilage of animals. even find the tools themselves. see rudimentary burial sites and deduce what kind of religion these early humans may have had or if they even gave a shit about their dead. it's important to know anatomy and how evolution shaped each hominid type, where that hominid lived and if they thrived or died in their environment. it's interesting, some skeletal remains of early show such great sex differences in size/shape that people have considered them to be from different human groups altogether. what we can deduce from early humans really changes depending on what subspecies they are and their environment. lots of human remains have yet to be classified into specific hominid groups, some are misidentified and fuck up everything we know about human history and migration. imagine finding a neanderthal remain in new zealand or some shit, shit would be crazy. evolutionary anthropology helps us map out human evolution from it's infancy and how patterns of migration, adaptation and branches into subspecies tell the story of prehistory. it really digs deep into the differences between early hominids, as there is so much more to be discovered in the field and in the lab. i know many people in the area of study who are positive that a fully preserved and intact body of a early human is somewhere in the artic ice and waiting to be found, lol. depending on the college that teaches it, you may be taking medical/biology classes. it's an interesting field of study if you wanna maybe pursue archaeology or work in a university.

also afaik ethnology is study of interactions between culture and people, it's more specific. i think it's a comparative field in that you study a culture and how it develops and interacts alongside another culture. im not sure, didn't really touch it in school. you're right tho, it's all confusion to me.

What happens if you have a bad period but a serious job?

I've been in uni, and have somehow managed to escape having a bad period day on any of my insecure minimum wage jobs. But in those ones where it needs to be 9-5 mon-fri…what happens?

The first day of my period I'm doubled over and lay in bed and shit at least 10 times for the first 6 hours and bleed around a mug's worth, then I can slowly move around, that's with meds. But with proper jobs it's not good to call in sick once a month, right?

I don't know about how it works in your country (and honestly, it probably depends from employer to employer) but your doctor should be able to arrange for you to get some extra sick days. My mom used to get 3 extra sick days every month because of her cramps, so 1 day a month doesn't sound really that outlandish to me.
Also forgive me, but I have to give some unsolicited advice because I am annoying like that;
NSAIDs are really good at diminishing the amount of menstrual blood, cramps, shitting and any other pains you have in general, especially if you remember to take them before your period starts. I used to take 75 mg of diclofenac on the first day and my periods became really manageable, I went from dying the first couple of days to just living normally.

I had to google it but I actually already take mefanamic acid, which turns out to be an NSAID.

Last time it began at 6am, woke me up and I was vomiting and in a cold sweat on the floor til midday, really quick onset.

Damn 3 sick days a month sounds sweet. I'm in northern europe so I think it'd be possible, but maybe something to not bring up before an official diagnosis.

Yeah I was going to ask if maybe she found your account by herself and blocked you on her own.

Since I use the same email address to log into fb and instagram and started by following irl friends on both my recommendations were full of people I knew irl and even now I'm recommended accounts of my friends' friends whom I never heard about or met before, so if you and that girl both follow your mutual friend on instagram it's possible you showed up in her recommendations very fast.

Dude the struggle is real. My recommendations:

- Start taking ibuprofen/tylenol/aleve/whatever 2-3 days before your period starts. (this is hard for me because I'm not regular but it works when I can time it correctly). Once your period starts, increase the amount of NSAIDs you take a bit. This will significantly reduce your cramps. Do be careful though because ibuprofen can fuck up your GI tract if you take too much, and fuck up your heart health over long term use

- In my experience, cannabis works really, really well for period cramps. If you don't mind being a little high at work, vaping (in a dry herb vaporizer, not a vape pen) even just a bit of weed before you start work will relieve your pain very quickly and will keep the smell more minimal than smoking. If you can't be high, vaping CBD flower will help too. You can also just try CBD/THC tinctures and edibles but they take longer to work and the edibles are tough to dose. All of these might make you drowsy so pair with coffee if necessary.

It’s all about quality of materials and the work of the people under a name that got famous.
The designs can be appealing for one reason or another, most of the times they’re made for one specific client who wants something for some reason, so, after the celebration/photoshoot, they sell the outfit they won’t wear again because it was a one time thing, it accomplished its purpose.
Then someone will be like “OMg! This is what Jane doe wore for that photoshoot and I neeeed it” they will buy it, tailor it, wear it and sell it again.
If you’re talking about the catwalk type of clothes, the high couture, they’re made to show the skills of the people working for a designer or the designers themselves, the idea is that the outfit looks not only interesting, but also somewhat appealing for a new client that might want to wear it someday.

No. 625582

They created a commercial solely intending to frame autism a disease that needs to be "cured" before it's "too late"… rather than, you know, a different type of brain. They actually don't focus much at all on taking care of autistic people or providing resources to autistic people and their caretakers, but instead milk people for money, a very small portion of which they use for futile "research" trying to find a cure.

There was not enough awareness when my autistic cousin was born and sure she was just odd and cute as a tiny baby, but she grew to be an barely communicative, strong adult that throws tempers the second something displeases her, her dad left my aunt because he couldn't bear dealing with a person like that anymore, my aunt's life is centered around the cousin, she cannot go anywhere for longer than an hour, she has no vacations ever, the autistic adult child is all there is. Maybe if there was more awareness how life-ruining this may be in the future, maybe if more was done from the early years of my cousins life, maybe things would be different now.

I got my sh scars tattooed over a few months ago, they were a combo of flat, faded scarring & mildly hypertrophic ones. It didn't hurt going over them any more than the non-scarred skin, but I have seen some people say otherwise. I think it really depends. The biggest downside was that the part that went over the scars hasn't healed the greatest, some of the lines are a little blown out & some ink has fallen out where the deeper and more raised scarring was. That's kind of inevitable when getting scars tattooed over, but luckily you can always get it touched up or reworked if you're really unhappy with it. I was super nerous too, so I understand anon!

Hey I'm just going by what my friend said, and I don't think you need to be super high functioning.

My opinion is colored obviously but my friend was regarded as not very high functioning. He didn't know how to read a bus timetable or cook or tie his shoes. But it turned out that everyone just had little faith so he was never taught and he assumed it was just somehting autistic people couldn't do. Literally just took making spaghetti bolognese with him, and explaining the column denotes the hour and the row up top denotes the days and he could then cook and read timetables, respectively. I'm wondering how common this is amongst people with autism. They're put in a box and restricted.

I think autism speaks frames autism overall as a disease. My friend has come to terms with and is happy being who he is.

I've also seen very low functioning autism that's definitely debilitating and personally I wouldn't keep a child like that, and they need huge amounts of resources and care. But Autism speaks doesn't seem to outline the difference or spectrum at all, which sucks.

From my understanding, SHARPs (Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice) are currently trying to reclaim the meaning of the term. Apparently the original version started in the UK as a punk subculture or something back in the 60s and then neo-nazis co-opted the hairstyles and somehow became more associated with the term. The SHARPs I've seen online make it a point to make the distinction and call the neo-nazis boneheads instead of fellow skinheads.

I don't get it either, but that also could just be because I'm not a part of it. Afaik, the original iteration was also populated by the working class to rebel against the establishment/rigidity of society like a lot of other punk subcultures do and to enjoy Jamaican culture.
Sorry to blog but I follow an influencer who had a Chelsea haircut earlier this year and she essentially had to shave it all the way off after a Jewish person told her having that style was triggering and the average person who only knew about boneheads would likely assume she's also one and feel threatened. The way I see it is it's like how the older Black Panthers are coming out to denounce some of the younger groups who are trying to use their name, when in reality they're festering with bigotry. I agree with you though, I feel like you can't call yourself a skinhead in today's day and age without being considered a neo-nazi before you're considered the opposite.

to be fair the skinhead style of dress and music (first wave punk, oi and ska punk) was created mostly by working class people, lots of 'em immigrants.

But I should’ve have to paste a disclaimer so that offended butters don’t call me male? Idk I just feel bad for women whose entire lives revolve around it when they’re a social pariah, it’s just kind of sad and it doesn’t look cute.

Skinheads existed in the 60s, usually associated with the mods and rockers subculture. Skinheads then got into punk in the 70s. Punk originated from the white working class. One of the major issues of the time was how white working class neighbourhoods were being changed by mass immigration. Some of the skinheads embraced and welcomed them. Some didn't and joined parts of the far right such as the National Front. That's why you find skinheads on both the extreme left and the extreme right.

I totally disagree. Lolita is definitely not like it was in the 80s/90s. People who are still asserting that are idiots. Lolita itself is based around traditional femininity and inspired by clothing styles and fads from other time periods. It still leans heavily on Japanese beauty standards and only really ignores socially acceptability as far as the clothing being excessive and not minimal, it even follows informal rules for Japanese women's clothing, such as often covering shoulders and breasts. Not only that but it's prevalence in anime in recent years shows that the style is fairly well received by men.


Also, the idea that attractive women don't want to rebel against beauty norms is kind of unfounded.

Worse imo.

People spend more time encouraging kinky stuff, instead of actually educating people on whats safe and healthy (mentally and physically). Also so many underage girls are growing up to fast. I know all of us wanted to act and seem older than we were when we were younger, but they shouldn't be allowed to actually act so…grown. I won't get to deep into it cause i'm shit at articulating myself when it comes to stuff like this, but I hope you get my point. Also cancel culture has so many flaws

Don't listen to the other anons. Kettles do effectively boil your water, but they're still more of a hassle compared to just microwaving a mug with the tea bag already in it. Not to mention different types of tea have different temperatures they should and should not be heated to, so I don't like running the risk of putting a certain type into the kettle/pouring boiling water onto my tea bag and it being wrong so my leaves are destroyed.

As someone who got a PSVita not too long after its release, no. Most of the interesting games on it are either ports and/or were ported on other platforms (especially thinking about P4G, Dangan Ronpa as a whole, and Gravity Rush), some of them were never translated and released in the West, getting a memory card is a pain in the ass because they're rare and expensive since they're made specifically for the Vita, and physical copies of games are hard to find or very expensive so you'll need to get a super expensive memory card to play games you'll buy on the PS Store. I think accessories are hard to get in the West as well, good luck getting a Vita TV that's not overpriced and I bought a new charger in Japan a few months ago because they're not sold where I am.

Getting one is even more useless if you already have a PS3 and/or a PS4 because of the point I made about ported games. If for some reason you want to hack your Vita and you manage to find a cheap one, then why not, I've read on/v/ that you can do some manipulations so you can just use normal memory cards but I have no idea how that shit works exactly. I love my PS Vita and the games I have on it but if I could have predicted the future I would have saved my money and spent it on a small TV and a PS4 later instead.

Is it wrong I don't feel bad being in my mid 20s and mooching off of my parents so I can eat out all of the time?

Long story short, because of COVID I wasn't able to get a job like I hoped to this year. I did find something that pays less than min wage, but it's not exactly the most luxurious lifestyle.

Meanwhile my parents have been find with supporting me. They still are willing to give me an allowance. And they have plenty of money, and have been spending less than usual because of working from home and such.

Meanwhile I've been eating out quite a bit which isn't the most thrifty behavior and spending money on random junk with my allowance. But I don't feel bad about it. Rather than having money sit in my parents' savings account, I'm helping restaurants and other small businesses stay afloat.

I kinda feel guilty since literally no one else I know my age is like this. But we're about to face a huge recession and businesses need more money than ever. And to someone in my position making less than minimum wage a Benjamin or two a month makes a big difference in me not having to worry about money so I can enjoy my time in my position more.

Why are so many women obsessed with men's heights? A friend of mine is on a dating app and mentioned that literally like 70% of the profiles he saw said "If you're not over 6' don't message." I know he's looking at a specific pool of people but I've heard this from friends and represented in media. Maybe it's because I like domme-y shit and the thought of being able to push my boyfriend around more easily is a turn-on, but what's the big deal? Are most women obsessed with the idea of a big stronk He-Man looming over them?

No. 627623

>>627620
Height in general accentuates good looks. Short people usually have smaller faces which means all their features accumulate in a way you can tell their frame/height. Tall people usually have more harmonious faces, but actors are usually short because their features are more expressive because of placement. I don't know how to explain this.

Tall men are just hot in general I think it's more niche to actively favour a smaller guy. Obviously when you know people attraction is different but on dating apps you may as well shoot for what you prefer.

Why do we have to pretend that this is normal?

Way too many people nowadays are absolutely sick. That "don't shame people for X" trend started with the goodnatured thought that maybe we shouldn't hate on people for their outer appearance and quickly evolved into utter degeneracy. Teen girls doing onlyfans instead of working a normal parttime job is totally a-okay, pedos are already trying to convince people that there's nothing wrong with their "preference", soon these freaks will try to make public sex legal or some shit. Honestly nothing would surprise me anymore at this point.

I've been a part of female-only communities for years. I used to be a mod for a very popular community that's stereotyped to be full of high-maintenance women but what I found was that a lot of the women were visibly nerdy and socially awkward, or just downright insane (which was the other mods usually).

Depending on his height or weight, actually no she wouldn’t, in most of the cases a woman would lose the irl fight.

A 6’2, 260lbs lardball man, talking full obese, can take out a very fit woman who is below 5’5 easily, real life situations are very differently from a gym where you are just sparring with guys and the woman might win based on skill.

A female MMA Fighter versus a skinny unfit 20 something, sure she will win but a normal fit woman versus a guy who has more than 5 inches and 30 pounds on her will lose badly.

Another girl was fostered by a minister. She seemed happy but she wouldn't really talk much about how she really felt, but she respected her guardians.

I myself am adopted and it made me very loyal/grateful to my family as I've grown older. In my eyes, they're the only reason I turned out as well as I did so I'm incredibly thankful because my alternatives weren't very good. I was adopted around the age of one by an older couple and the only downside is how much I fear their deaths/living without them. This is apparently suuuper common for kids adopted by older folk though. I always said I'd pay it back by adopting as well but decided I probably shouldn't raise a child if cyclic behaviour exists because I could totally make that child feel awful without even realizing.
Do your research too, a lot of kids can come incredibly damaged despite only having "small" traumas simply due to their age. My mother adopted another child and he turned out to have a physical brain abnormality and now has life in prison despite every other child my mother helped becoming something incredible and happy. She still blames herself despite seeing his fMRI and genetic tests, and that guilt is lifelong.

I wanted to buy some Twitch Bits with Paypal and even tho I have enough money in my account, I am taken to a screen that basically forces me to associate a card in order to continue the purchase.
Does that mean that my funds are actually not enough? (maybe with taxes + conversion rate differences/interests I need more money than I have in my account?). Or do you HAVE to obligatorily associate a card if you want to purchase things through Paypal? Never used Paypal to buy anything before tbh. And I also didn't have a card associated w my account because I originally made it just to recieve payment from commissions.

I don't know about the big pageants like that but for a few years now, at least in smaller competitions, the judges always tend to pick the most unconventional looking one as some kind of political statement about "everyone being beautiful", and not the traditional pretty girls that the crowd votes for. I guess that might have something to do with it. Everyone I know used to love Eurovision too, but I haven't heard a peep about it for years now, it probably suffered from the same thing.

Long blogpost incoming, sorry anon.

I was diagnosed at age 19 during a depressive episode. I then spent two years in therapy doing cognitive behavioral therapy (which changed a LOT) and weekly group therapy. I’ll be honest and say I barely feel like I struggle with the disorder in my day to day life now.

CBT helped me find a few things to stay sane. First off I hold myself to drastically lower standards than people probably should. I accept when I’m tired or stressed and allow time for self care instead of pushing through. Secondly I’ve also learned not to give a fuck about others’ validation or approval and in that regard I’ve also learned not to share things with people I don’t trust. The people closest to me do support my decisions however.

I’m very aware my current happiness is dependant on the balance I created for myself in my life and worked very hard for. So for example the pandemic obviously hit pretty hard. I reevaluated my goals and lowered my standards. I was doing a double degree so I dropped out of the one least important for my future, and I gave up on looking for a summer job to sit home all summer instead. Five years ago before my diagnosis I would have pushed through till I burned myself out and felt suicidal over the littlest things.

I think one of the most important things, no matter how depressed you feel, is to have some semblance of a daily routine. If I do too much in a day for a routine I take things out. If I don’t do anything at all I add things like meeting friends or exercise. Keeping a bullet journal has been amazing too.

I tried sugar waxing during quarantine, it was pretty easy to make and the results lasted about a month for me! To make your own at home all you need is 1 cup of sugar (I used regular granulated sugar), 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 1/4 cup water; combine those ingredients in a sauce pan and cook it on the stove top over medium heat until it’s a honey color. The YouTuber of the video attached has a bunch of helpful videos on DIY sugar waxing that I followed, she goes into detail about how to avoid making the wax too soft or too hard, but I just looked for the color change and it worked for me kek.

Looking at all this birthday talk, I'd like to ask a question
How would you celebrate a birthday together with your s/o?

Thing is, he is even going to take a day off on my upcoming birthday but I've been so busy with courses lately that I realized that I do not even know what I want to do on my own birthday. Our city barely has any covid cases (usually not at all) thanks to our tiny country.

I LOVE going to cinemas, but the only movies they are screening right now are the ones that I am not interested in, and when it comes to restaurants I am more of'delivery order' kind of person, even though idm trying out some new places.
I also been to all the museums in our city because I am art-hoe wannabe.

If he wasn't online I don't think he ghosted you, maybe he's been dealing with something personal.

you're probably right. i have a lot of trust issues with men though especially after my last breakup. this guy seems very nice though, but a lot of men do. i am just jumping to the worst conclusion right now and should calm down…

It's a bit early to know but if it turns out he did ghost you..well at least he did it within the first month. No huge loss of time there. I find that common in the first month.

Try and keep distracted for the next couple days if it's stressing you. If you don't hear by then I'd say to move on

How do you even act around someone who just lost her father??? My brother's gf lost her father yesterday and after the funeral she's coming stay with us (I share an apartment with my brother) for a while and I have no idea how to react/console her. I can't even imagine the pain she's feeling, what do I do?? Is there any nice thing I could make/give her to help??

Just let her know you're here for her and that you're willing to support her in any way she needs. It's okay not to know how exactly to treat her, be honest about it and show that you're sincerely interested in her wellbeing. If she's the physical affection type you can hug her, it really helps to touch your loved ones when you're sad.

Also imo don't say shit like "I can't even imagine what ur going thru" it just never made sense to me. Focus on her needs and don't talk about yourself.

One thing I'd recommend is to just be considerate, offer some food, ask if she wants to watch a movie, etc. A lot of times people will say things like "I'm here if you need anything," but oftentimes you don't really know what you need when you just lost a loved one. Having a friend take the initiative and offer company is really nice. She might just want some alone time though, and that's cool too.
