You fucked up your leg and your friend is visiting: what would you be happy to get from them? They are moving soon so nothing big like flowers
Something to eat, food is always the answer, no need to store it because you can eat it right there with them and everyone has a full stomach.
Or maybe gloves? Winter is coming, unless you’re not from a place that has winters, so in that case, maybe a bag for makeup or a reusable shopping bag.deleted because if retarded spelling
nah its a life sentence, just try to actually focus on getting better and listen to your team and do what they suggest p much no question. but thats indicative of mental health in general. people go to get help but dont follow up with aftercare or continuing care.
it wont go away. treat it like that.

Same for me, and on instagram adding hashtags make posts look ugly.
The outcome depends on how much you’re willing to work. Working with BPD women pretty much exclusively I’ve seen a woman with a prognosis of life in group homes maintain a marriage and a home with zero major fuckups cause she does her therapy and constantly uses her DBT skills. One is now a dentist undergrad with a healthy relationship and a son.
Others have five kids to six dads, are on and off the streets, or are both abusers and victims
of abuse with their partners. These ones for whatever reasons didn’t show up, or when they did they treated therapy as a thing you passively do a few hours a week, not actively learning skills for every day use.
You aren’t doomed unless you choose to doom yourself. It’s hard as hell but you aren’t fated to become some screeching bpdchan. You can learn how to replace the disordered aspects of your life with healthy ones. It’s retraining mostly.
This isn't a death sentence anon. You aren't a shitty person just for having a mental illness out of your control. It's your choice what to do with this diagnosis. Either you bite this in the ass right now, realize how fucked up you've been living, reevaluate yourself and how you think, reach out for help. Or you go the other route, and use it as a crutch for the rest of your life and become a crackwhore on the street.
You have control of what you can do with your life. You have control of how you can relearn your behaviors and relationships. You are treatable. But you have to start treating this shit now. Don't wait. This is the first step. And dont listen to LC all the time. LC isn't going to pamper anyone, any mentally ill person will get shit. I hope the best for you.
their skirts are nice but it will probably last you 3 to 4 years instead. it's better quality than fast fashion places but not at the level that goes over 5 years. they also carry styles that seem to go out of fashion depending on the piece. >>652274
people resell older modcloth on ebay a lot if you specifically wanted their pieces. there's topvintage, uniquevintage, anthropology, mercari, and etsy would also have similar items. id say look for 'collared dress' and depending on the seller youll find similar styles to that piece. using retro as a descriptor might help too

I feel like I’m about to be called retarded for asking this but here we go. Why do so many fabric softeners look like this?
Almost no information on the front of the bottle other than brand logo and scent, milquetoast pleasant graphics covering most of the real estate and the fact that it is a fabric softener is mentioned in tiny letters or not at all in case of pic related. If you knew nothing about doing laundry you wouldn’t know what these products are, unless you went out of your way to read the small font on the back of the bottle. You don’t see that with house cleaning products for example, quite the opposite actually.
Why are some manufacturers so cryptic about their fucking fabric softeners? Is it their way of tricking people into buying product that is bad for your skin, clothes and the environment?
File: 1602379005599.png (554.08 KB, 1280x1280, 541535B4-311B-414B-A288-5921C0…)
Ok, but what’s stopping them from just slapping “fabric softener” in easy to read letters front and center, a’la pic related?
A lot of pre packaged food is also covered in pleasant imagery but leaves no doubt about what it is. I thought packaging was supposed to be informative.
Please do, actually. I want my hate for fabric softeners and their stupid packaging to be perfectly informed and justified.>>652493
Thanks, anon. That makes sense.
I used to wear makeup every day and this is kinda why I stopped. It wasn’t even a lot of makeup, but the stuff I wore improved my appearance a lot. Eye makeup makes a huge difference. The few times I was too tired to do it or running short on time, I felt so hideous compared to my “normal” self. I even got the old “are you getting sick” comments of course. The difference was so stark even though I wasn’t wearing “heavy” makeup, but a little concealer and lined eyes made me feel like a model.
No judgement to those who wear makeup, but even a small amount every day can be pretty fucking damaging when it becomes your “normal” face. It sucks to feel like you need eye pencil to look human.

Off topic but this reminds me of this fabric scent booster that I mistook for lube when I saw it on the target website. I mean it has a proper label but I wouldn’t look at this and think laundry
Say "I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't even imagine how hard it must be for you. If you need someone to talk to, know that I'm always here for you."
Basically the key points to comforting someone are: acknowledge their loss, don't try to relate too hard/bring up your own experiences, focus on them instead and ask them if they want to talk or would prefer some space. If she says she wants to be left alone, respect her decision but also let her know that you'll still be there if she changes her mind.

Is there a cost-effective way to wash clothes that doesn't involve actually washing them with water? I hear washing your clothes less often lets your clothes last longer, but I don't want my clothes to stick or stay stained. I hear some people let their clothes out in the sun to kill the bacteria
I heard about the sunlight thing too, but I doubt it actually kills bacteria. Maybe speeds up the process of drying clothes that were already washed, thus eliminating any potential musty smells that may come from laundry staying wet too long. Short wavelength UV lamps are used to destroy bacterial cells in hospital rooms for example, but these are super strong lamps made specifically for this purpose and the whole room has to be closed off when theyre working, because they’re not safe for people. Short wavelength UV-C rays that come from the sun are mostly blocked off by our ozone layer and don’t reach the earth’s surface, because if they did we’d all have melanoma.
Sometimes you jest have to wash your clothes anon.
Washing your clothes less only makes them last longer if you typically throw conflicting textures of clothes together into one load (ex. jeans and blouses), without laundry bags, and with the wash setting cranked to hyperspeed. In my experience, wearing your clothes for too long without proper washing and drying in direct sunlight are both big contributors to damage as well.
My solution to keeping even middle to low tier quality clothes looking good is to never wear them more than once before washing (twice if skirt or loose pants), never lounging in them when I get home, washing with laundry bags on gentle, and hang drying appropriately for the fabric type (knits, for example, might need extra water pressed out before being draped across a wider surface to dry vs using a hanger and letting the garment stretch out).
Not that anon but when you leave dark or bright coloured clothes in direct sunlight too much the colours can fade and become more washed out. That doesn't affect the durability though. The only other thing I can think of is how clothes can feel a bit stiff after drying outside, but I doubt the sun has much to do with that.
I feel like the only drying method that actively wears clothes out more is tumble drying, especially if it's too hot or rough.
Doesn't seem excessive to me, that's how the first couple months of a relationship are. As long as he seems to initiate and enjoy it as much as you it sounds fine. If you feel like you're always the one to initiate contact or keep the conversation going, you might want to tone it down a bit.
Don't fall into the trap of doing that to make him miss you more though, getting used to playing those kinds of games in a relationship never ends well.
Ummm duh anon, men are clearly the biggest victims
of the patriarchy because they can’t wear pink or cry in public.
Some cats are just vocal, especially certain breeds. Do you know if he's always this vocal? Maybe he misses his owner.>>652719
It's the partner's responsibility to not drink so much that they cheat on their so. "I wasn't fully in control because I was drunk" is no excuse when everyone knows drinking lowers inhibitions and they're fully in control of how much they drink.
If they cared about their SO they wouldn't be drinking if it makes them cheat.
Also, this is like the fourth time I've seen you post this argument, stop trying to convince people cheating is excusable, sorry you're a piece of shit with poor self-control.
Yes it’s definitely possible if you have low-porosity hair. When cuticles on your individual hairs are smooth and closely packed the dye has a hard time penetrating into your hair shaft (as opposed to high-porosity hair that has its cuticles sticking out). On the plus side, your hair is probably thick, smooth and healthy-looking.
You could try putting dye on your hair when it’s damp, not dry or using an apple cider vinegar rinse before you dye to raise acidity and get your hair cuticles to open up. But honestly, it’s best to visit a hair stylist who knows what they’re doing.
The only type of thing I'd accept the alcohol excuse for is when they didn't notice something was shitty to do. Like being wasted and plopping down on someones lap because there's no free space on the couch. You can do stuff like that and not think anything of it in the moment while in a sober state you'd figure that it can come across as flirty.
When it's an action that's without any doubt romantic or sexual in nature, there's no excuse. You can't make out with someone without understanding that you're cheating, no matter how drunk you are.
If you ask him if he likes you and considers being more than just FWB and he says yes, that's how you know!
Seriously though, just talk about it.
Don’t listen to this anon. BPD is not
a life sentence. I don’t know what this person’s agenda is, because this is simply not true.

thank you both, anons. that's very kind of you. i intend to work very hard at therapy.
i also really appreciate the reassurance that the diagnosis itself doesn't make me shitty. while trying to find more info on bpd i keep finding endless pages full of people who have been hurt by borderline people who are understandably very negative about people with the condition. it's been really hard to read, honestly.>>652789>>652783>>652781
thank you for sharing your experiences, anons. i want to live a normal life and get better too, very very much. well done on working so hard to recover.
sorry for the blog post but the weird thing is that my life isn't actually very chaotic, i'm a phd student and a lecturer. i'm celibate, i don't drink or take drugs. i don't have explosive anger and i have some long-term friendships. i expected to be dx'd with bipolar 2 rather than borderline.
i self-harm though and i have bad depressive episodes where i try to take my own life but i don't threaten anyone with it, i plan it out so nobody i love has to find me. i experience a lot of low self-esteem, paranoia and dissociation.
i'm already working hard to keep my life stable and doing an OK job but i hope that the structured clinical management will make me more resilient for the rest of my life.
thanks again everyone, i hope you all stay well and happy.
from what i can tell, bipolar 2 has hypomania rather than full blown mania. i have (admittedly very rarely) spent time being very irritable/anxious, taking on lots and lots of projects, sleeping very little, and have had neutral spells in-between.
i felt like bipolar 2 described me better but i'm not a mental health professional, and they are. i'm seeing a consultant for a proper working diagnosis tomorrow so we'll see.

Is it possible for a female to build a body like this without taking steroids?
also kek'd, she still looks more feminine than me and I'm a twig.
I wonder what makes a woman want to build muscle like that. Like, beauty standards for us are very specific and she went in the completely opposite direction, and then some.
Is it some sort of power move you think? that would be based and pinkpilled lol
I sat next to a male in college who smelt like disgusting stale ass and what I assume to be dried semen. Living with my sibling's boys as they got older, I realized it was a chore to get them to wash or wipe. Even ages 10+. The only time they didn't smell like ass was after they spent all day at the pool, which is what I assume the most ass washing they'd get.
I only pray that the US will modernize and let bidets take over soon. Men make us rip our pubes out and split our vagina for their babies, they should at least wash their asses. That or just wait for AI himbobots.
I think you would need to talk with real bodybuilders, which I doubt lurk around here, and if they do tell me your secrets, I love you, marry me or at least hug me, I will simp for you
Anyways, I read a few months ago that to be able to get ripped, you need to have a really strict diet.

She was so hot in mid 80s. The only downside is that steroids make your face more masculine with time. Some female body builders had pretty femininine faces in their youth but then they turned so masculine they started looking like trannies.

File: 1602456139275.jpg (21.27 KB, 320x240, barbra.jpg)
Definitely the style on the right. Notice how it creates mass in the back. The mass in the back detracts from the mass in the front (her nose), almost making her nose seem a lot smaller. It makes her look classical and sophisticated.
Long straight hair looks flat and wet, making her face appear massive. The short cut makes her head tiny but face huge. Truly, the only style befitting of her type of face is the huge updo. Makeup and wardrobe were clearly aware of this.
File: 1602456525684.jpg (49.95 KB, 750x962, 1e9ce0fdedd2b45545cc3de6dcec06…)
I think the third one looks the best. It's very formal and not for everyday wear though. The short cut makes the lower half of her face more pronounced, and she already has a strong profile. The long hair also looks ok, but it would look better with some volume. It looks kinda flat and grungy (for lack of a better word). Like she hasn't washed her hair in a minute. If that's the look you're going for though, it might be ok.
Lady gaga has a similar-ish profile. Her jaw isn't as strong tho. The Hair thread in /g/ could give you some ideas.
thanks sm anons, I thought it was just me that thought the hair down just doesnt suit her type of side profile. My hair is pretty voluminous but I still wouldn't wear it down, idk.
and thnx i'm heading over there now x
We're social animals. Some people need socialize less/more than others, but generally we all enjoy get to interact with other people. Unless you have social anxiety.
Kind of a tangent being alone for too long can fuck up your brain. In the U.S there's actually a law that prisoners cannot be in solitary confinement for more than 15 days. It cause mental illness, lose of neurons decrease the size of the hippocampus etc…
I get being social animals and all that but not being able to be alone for a few hours? I guess I would like to know what it’s like to feel lonely, like are you afraid of something? Idk
That’s an interesting thing to know about the changes in your brain.
I think that's just the difference between being an introvert or an extrovert. Introverts need social battery recharge time like extroverts need human interaction.
I used to work with a textbook extrovert who would go out every single weekend, she was always at some party, bar, social event, etc. It sounded absolutely awful to me since I couldn't wait for the weekend to sit at home and not be around people, but she probably thought my weekends were boring too kek.

I have ADHD, and if there's similarities in symptoms then that's probably it. May be what's going on with you too.
I mostly understand context and usually understand when I'm going overboard on discussing topics with someone. On that note, it's funny to have a man compliment me in one sentence, and later watch the body language of him trying to escape after I've talked too much.
I wasn’t but my siblings are +10 years older, so they weren’t around much.
I haven’t really thought about simply not being used to it, sounds like another logical possibility.
Eh it's a female trait. real talk I know women struggle to get autism/ADHD identified but watch any reality tv or female youtuber, we physically express ourselves. Unless you have other, actually troublesome symptoms of these things don't sweat it. No one is thinking you're autistic unless they use imageboards too much kek
Maybe we all are a tad autistlike but then it'd be like how everyone can act "OCD" sometimes without having it

I have a question for native english speakers (probably specifically from the USA). I've been hearing the term "nimrod" a lot lately, and I kinda like how it sounds so I want to start using it, lol. As far as I understand, it means the same as moron, stupid, idiot, incompetent, etc, right? So, instead of saying I'm "socially retarded" (since people now get offended for the word 'retard'), can I say that I'm a "social nimrod"? Or does that sound weird?
Also does the word nimrod in general sound stupid? lol I don't want to use it if it's going to make me look like an idiot, but as an ESL, I don't really "get" the uh, "vibe" certain words give. Like, I just can look up the meaning, but I will never understand if a word sounds stupid or childish or offensive unless someone points it out to me.
It sounds weird in general because it has an outdated feel to it in general, but the way you’re using it sounds extra unnatural. People would definitely understand what you meant (unless you have a strong accent, which tends to activate certain burger’s retard confusion switch), but it does sound weird regardless.
Also I don’t think the word itself is offensive in traditional sense, but as always, there will always be someone to get offended at any kind of negative word.
no only normies think so
really it’s just gay and annoying, and you may see something you don’t like every once in a while or if you actively look for it

I don't believe tampons expire? They're still good to keep around in case of an emergency or if you have a guest over.
An ex clinic director I used to work under said that when he was deployed as a medic in Iraq, they'd use tampons to plug bullet holes temporarily, so there's that.
I don't know exactly what they're called, but I've seen disposable toothbrushes before that already have toothpaste on/in them, after brushing he could just spit in the sink. Or mouthwash and spit it out in the sink.
I'm sorry your father is in that situation, it sounds dehumanizing.
I guess keeping a few tampons around is a good thing in case of emergency but I have dozens of them lying around, and it's been eight years since I started using the cup, I really have no use for them in the long run.>>653519

How much money do yo guys usually spend on Christmas presents for your family, and how many family members do you have (buy for)?
How much I spend: 0$
Usually just draw them something nice or make sweets. We grew up poor so that's just the way it is.
I only celebrate with my parents and sister and we spend about 20-30 euro-ish per person. Me and my sister are both still students so more expensive gifts are a bit out of our comfortzone. For us it's mostly about having a litte bit of fun and an enjoyable night and not about serious expensive gift-giving. There aren't any expensive presents I want or they want anyway so it's fine.>>653564

Two years and 3 months. We closed the gap due to some rather unconventional circumstances about a month or two ago. My boyfriends brother is a pedophile and his parents kicked my boyfriend out because we reported the brother to the police.

I have about four internet friends that I've known for 6+ years at this point. We still talk daily, and I met one of them irl for the first time as a surprise for my birthday last year! They got me through some of the toughest years of my life and it's been amazing to grow up with them.>>654093

I assume it’s just people dressing to reflect their surroundings, which sounds pagan or even animalistic but for some reason we still do it. All bright colours go in Spring/Summer as everything is in bloom. Autumn/Winter clothes tend to be earthy like the seasons nature
The only practical reason I can think of is that darker clothes are supposed to attract heat better but the colour wouldn’t make a massive difference if you’re wearing thick sweaters and coats
Now you mention it, wearing bright winter clothes would look cool
Those reasons only relate to coat colour, not winter clothes in general. Inside it's not cold nor snowing.>>654210

Is it weird not to want to work out when it's above 35 degrees (95 fahrenheit, normal climate where I live btw) and you know you're gonna get sweaty as hell and disgusting? I prefer to take just one bath per day but I fucking hate feeling sweaty in general, I'm worried it might just me being lazy.
Also, non-meme home workouts for the glutes, are there any? I find it hard to tell which are instafit workouts and which are wayyy above my league aka bodybuilding enthusiast level. I work out and my thighs and calves are filled out, but my butt isn't because I sit all day. It gives me hip dips and I hate it, I've even changed my diet and lost a lot of weight but they're still there, I'm certain it's the glutes. I'm not even looking for bubble-butt workouts, just something to fill out my hips.
Of course it's natural not to want to work out when it's hot af. It does suck but if that's what your local climate is like, it's just part of the game if you want to be consistent. I've taken hot yoga classes before (where they intentionally raise the temp to ~40C/105F) and enjoyed them. Sweat was literally dropping off of me like rainfall but I think because I went into the workout expecting it, it wasn't so bad. Being hot also helps relax the muscles more, which can be a good thing. Can you work out early morning or late night when you'd naturally be taking your shower anyway?
Re: hip dips, they're 100% normal and healthy anon. They mostly have to do with your bone structure and fat distribution. There's not much you can really do to fill them out short of getting a fat transfer. You can kind of build them up, but the muscle along the side of the hips (gluteus medius) is small and even super fit women with big, muscular butts will typically have them if that's how they're built. Women with naturally wider hips are actually more prone to have visible dips. As you can see in pic rel it's mostly your pelvic bone that determines how the area looks.

Let them outside frequently, and give treat when they poop outside. If you catch them pooping inside, immediately let them outside while you clean up, and don't treat. You want to build an association with poop and outside, and pooping outside with a reward. As they get good at it they will alert you when they want out. From there you can start to decrease treat frequency.
Toys and plenty of daily exercise to keep them stimulated. They won't get bored or restless which is usually why they start chewing shit. If they start chewing shit they aren't supposed to, distract them with a chewing toy, play, or exercise. For good measure, you can treat after a few minutes of good play. (You don't want to distract a dog from unwanted behavior with treats, because that rewards unwanted behavior)
Dogs are usually easy to train but some breeds are exceptionally stupid and will take more time to learn basic shit.
i just realized i posted on the questions thread instead of the dumbass shit thread.
so to fix my dumb mistake here's a question: former weebs, why did you stop watching anime?
I gave a cheater a chance once (he admitted to cheating in one relatiosnhip where he described being stuck in a long dead marriage) Well sure enough he cheated on me too 2 1/2 years later, though his affair was probably at least 6 months long before I found out.
He gave excuses for why his marriage ended with cheating ("I tried to leave her several times already, the bedroom was long dead") But when he cheated on me there was no dead bedroom, no fights, I was younger than him, above him looks wise and I wasn't driving him to it with any bitchy fights etc. I think it just comes down to morals and having an ability to switch them off when it suits you. I wouldn't overlook it again.

What are your passions, anon? You don't need degrees to be an artist or a baker, if you like travelling you could become a travel writer or blogger.
Doing stuff like volunteering for a few months can help you meet new people and make connections, and you're actively doing things and helping people, so you won't feel bad about being 'unproductive'. You don't have to rush things, anon, we're rooting for you!
Travel writing or blogging is terrible advice, it's super saturated with travel influencers and "aspirational" accounts and extremely competitive.>>655267
You can become a chef, open a cafe, be a baker like the other anon said, work as a cleaner or line cook, start your own food business, learn how to code and get freelance contracts, be a caretaker, many things.

I have one too but I don't think it's very noticeable. I never seem to notice it in others. Only person's cleft chin I ever thought looked weird is Demi Lovato, it's super distracting to me for some reason. Oh, and John Travolta, but his cleft is really deep too.

I remember when I was a teen all I wanted was to live in the US and they were considered super advanced for our standards (I'm from a former Soviet country, also they had Hot Topic).
Now I wouldn't set my foot there if you made me, many people fell for the meme and moved to the US only to be bogged down by debt, healthcare costs for just popping out a baby, healthcare of dubious quality where you're never sure if the doctor is pushing something to you for profit or not, school shootings, terrible food quality, no daycare, sexism everywhere, medieval medical practices and opioids being prescribed for everything, a broken political system that makes you choose between crazy SJWs who push porn and trannies onto people and racist uncles who kill Mexicans… fuck outta here with that, I'm good. I only feel sorry for people who see it for the mess that it is but have no choice but to stay there.
I would say most Americans don’t believe the US is first rate at anything. Not everybody here is a screeching patriot, like you probably see all over your news.
I’m sure it’s hard to believe, but there are people here who understand the precarious situation the country is in. Most people I know are just trying to do their best in a society that expects a lot and gives so little in return.

What would the real-life equivalent of the outfit/dress on the right?
I guess like other anons said it could depend on the spacing of your teeth. If they're close together I think you should be doing it. I never flossed for the first 18 years of my life until a really good dentist showed me how the enamel between my teeth was thinning faster than normal. It's not something you would personally notice until it's too late. I was able to stop the progression by starting to floss at least a few times a week.
Also, when you don't floss for a long time, the plaque can be so stuck on and hard that you can't remove it with a flosser. Might be why you aren't seeing anything. Just a thought.
You must be a good brusher, I'd say don't floss unless there's a lot of plaque or you might erode your gums enough to start letting things in.
I don't know why people are saying gaps = less need to floss, my teeth are practically watertight and I barely need to floss save for a gappy tooth on my right that gets chunks stuck in it.
Actually, sniff your piece of floss after you use it, if it smells like death even if you can't see anything then you needed to do it.
Only floss the teeth you wanna keep, that's what my dad always tells me. But I think there is a genetic component so you might be lucky enough to be resistant to gum disease- do you get any bleeding when you floss? Are your gums pink or red? I never have any issues with my actual teeth but I'm very prone to gingivitis so I have to floss well, it's the only advice my dentists ever give me.
I just wouldn't risk not flossing either way though. You never know if your teeth/gums will get worse over time and dental issues are the last thing you want.
Old friends would go on and on about "muh depression" for not wanting to do better in life or hanging out. Obviously I would be affected by this since everyone around me thought they should continue being a NEET, since the anime community promotes that shit I guess. I thought I had mental illness issues but then when I ditched them for new friends they basically uplifted me and helped me convert to a "just do shit" mindset. Overall they halved my anxiety, and I got a better support group. Idk what else to say but if you have specific questions I'll be glad to answer them.
Having friends engrossed in anime circles is pretty difficult, they (obviously) don't have enough reality checks and its good to be friends with "normies" in my experience, they're pretty predictable and stable.

Haven't had a period since August, but am not sexually active at all and have not had any form of sexual contact since early - mid June with my partner who is sterilized (after that, I had 2 periods for July and August, and also took pregnancy tests just in case. All negative). I'm on birth control to control period symptoms when they come, but have never really had issues with it before.. until maybe August. My last August period lasted for about 15 days, really really heavy and consistent with horrible emotional side effects which has never happened to me before. Since then I have not seen my period at all when it's supposed to come. I'm not underweight/overweight (though definitely closer to underweight) but my diet is really poor and lacking in calories+nutrients.
Should I see a doctor about this, or should I just ignore it since honestly I kind of enjoy not having a period? Definitely not pregnant, but worried something may be wrong with me although I have no symptoms besides no sign of a period.

Credit cards are basically like small little loans you take out. You have a card, it has a credit limit (ie the maximum amount of money you can spend), you pay for purchases with it, and then you pay off your card. Credits cards are a necessary evil. They are a good and easy way to build credit, and a terrible and easy way to fuck yourself over.
If you are thinking of getting one, I stress that you remain fearful of it if you aren’t good with money. Spend it like a debit card. None of the money you spend on it to pay for things is technically your own money. I watched cartoons of characters getting fucked over by credit cards (I remember the Proud Family one where I think it comes alive? lol) and still have that fear. I know friends who actually have lots of debt because they maxed out their cards like fucking idiots, hell, my own dad owes $12k on one of his cards. They have high interest rates which will fuck you over in the end. There’s a tactic in the US of how credit card companies will raise the credit limits of poorer borrowers because they know those people will just spend more and owe more in interest (I forget where I found this article but can dig it up if you’d like).
In high school I was taught to use my credit card sparingly. Buy a pack of gum with it once a month to keep it active, then just pay that off. Easy peasy way to build credit. Now I’m more financially responsible and charge many things to my cards because I’m used to it and know how to not be a fuck up with it. If you’re wondering “wow credit cards sound useless, why even use them instead of a debit card?” the answer is
1) They provide an excellent layer of protection. Oh I just shoved my card into a card reader that swipes my info? Fuck off scammer. I have text alerts set up for my credit cards so every time I make a purchase over $0.01, I get an alert. If someone used my card, I’d know it and can call my card’s company and have them cancel the purchase and mail me a new one. If someone spend $10k with my stolen card info, if it’s with my debit card, I’m FUCKED until my bank gives me back that money. With my credit card? The charge was just loan money, my bank will verify and then just knock that shit off my bill.
2) Rewards. Don’t bother with credit cards that don’t offer rewards if you qualify for better ones. Some are cashback, some are travel points, some are whatever else. You get a small, tiny percentage of whatever you spent on purchases given back to you in cashback. Shit adds up over the years. You might be tempted to spend for the sake of rewards though (I was for a little) and that’s just about balancing yourself out (I personally use my card on all my autopay shit then pay with cash for the rest so I still earn rewards, but am not tempted to go whole hog on earning them).
3) It’s a loan, sometimes you might need a loan to afford something like groceries real quick before payday kicks in. Very convenient in the moment, but very dangerous if you aren’t on top of your shit.
I always check my card balance and make sure it is well under what is in my bank account. Sure my credit limit might be ABC amount of money, but if my checkings says XYZ amount, then XYZ is my hard spending limit. I personally like to see my card balance as close to zero as possible too, otherwise it stresses me out, so I use it as sparingly as possible. I pay my card off in full every month (have auto pay set up too, anyone who tells you to carry a balance is fucking dumb) and my life is smooth sailing and credit score is nice and high. I learned about APRs but always forget what they are but the interest rates on my card don’t matter to be because I’m never charged them since I pay in full anyway. Just don’t be a fucking dumbass and you’ll be fine.

I like the idea from becoming a lot more prettier by using makeup a la princess diaries, but I have so much trouble looking at myself objectively, I seriously can't tell what features I have and I don't think I can trust other people's observations since all they say if 'you look fine' and I always think wearing makeup makes me look worse, like, if I look like I'm wearing makeup I think I look worse and idk why, but no-makeup makeup doesn't make me look particularly better so I might as well not wear any at all. What can I do to rectify this?
Yes. You could always search a youtube video like "pc build under [your budget]" and most of the time, they show how they build it.
My first time was terrifying because the components were pricey and I was afraid I'd break something but it went fine. After my 3rd build, it became a very familiar process.
Pc building simulator is a cool game that will make you feel more acquainted with the components and the building process. You can torrent the game to try it out.
It's always better to build it yourself or alternatively, research the components and the build and give it to some pc shop to have them build it for you. You will always get a better bang for your buck.

Why do women ditch me after finding out I'm bi? Should I just chalk it down as biggotry?
Some lesbians don’t want to date bi women for perfectly valid
albeit admittedly hurtful sometimes(also bi) reasons. I wouldn’t call it bigotry though lol.
First of all, law enforcement can pressure commercial DNA oompanies to share your DNA (they already tried to get free access to it in my country). Even if you don't care about yourself (which I don't get like you can't trust governments with any of your shit), you're also basically sharing the dna of your relatives, did they want that? Did you know they only need a small percentage of people's dna to map everyone?
Second, do you trust them to keep your data safe? I remember millions of accounts of MyHeritage were leaked a couple of years ago. Not sure what they'd do with it, but they don't hack for it if they can't exploit your data. Third, they can sell your dna for research and such (and when the research results in something you can bet they'll put medicine on the market at skyhigh prices) so they can profit off of you , again why would you them to profit off of you at no benefit for you?
There's undoubtly more reasons I can't think/know of. I truly find it mindboggling how readily and easily people share their private data with just about anyone.

What the fuck, so calling a girl cute = ugly but calling a guy cute = still cute BUT nice = ugly.
Huh, so if you could provide sex, love and affection to everyone through some future technology you wouldn't? Currently it's impossible and unethical to do but that was the case with food 150 years ago.
Dumb question but w/e
It’s not good equivalence. Food is immediate necessity for survival, love and sex aren’t. If there would truly be an efficient way to fulfill those needs then of course I don’t care who can get some. Doesn’t mean it’s a god given right. There are still people going hungry even though we have the technology to feed everyone on earth. We have the technology to give everyone a house, doesn’t mean everyone is entitled to one.
Furthermore, what makes you think people will be content with lab-grown love? Love and sex can not be mass produced in the same way that food is. Love and sex have been bought and sold for a very long time and yet people don’t consider bought affection “real” like we consider supermarket pork and wild caught pig to be real food. I don’t think AI waifus will cure humans of our chronic loneliness that is the core drive for interpersonal relationships.
I know it feels fuzzy and warm to believe that people are born with innate claim to contentment, be it in the form of a full stomach or a loving partner. But we aren’t. Everything we have is because we built a society that can afford to spare more people those things and love will always be in short supply and can not be equally distributed.
I disagree with you but that might be bcs I'm little communist.
>There are still people going hungry even though we have the technology to feed everyone on earth. We have the technology to give everyone a house, doesn’t mean everyone is entitled to one.
This is just you saying that the rich guys like Jeff Bezos are entitled to own you. I can't put it in any other way, you're giving up your rights as a person. If you believe you're not entitled to a roof over your head or to food in your mouth then I don't know what to tell you. Go vote for Trump and other pro-life bullshit since you're not entitled to anything.>Furthermore, what makes you think people will be content with lab-grown love?
It's just chemicals in our brains, we can already make people feel "love" and "happiness" with surgery.>But we aren’t. Everything we have is because we built a society that can afford to spare more people those things and love will always be in short supply and can not be equally distributed.
But you just said it wasn't about supply? You wouldn't give people houses if they were around, instead you want old rich white guys to have power over you
I bet Weinstein used that line a lot: "Nobody's entitled to an acting career but if you do something for me". It's disgusting, that line of thinking just lets people to become monsters
I would never say people are entitled to sex. Sex is an act that predominately makes children. No one is entitled to procreate. It's a biological urge sure, and it's how we keep the species going as a whole, but it's daft that every human is entitled to sex. Sex involves another party and there needs to be consent, you can't be entitled to another person.
I do agree humans are entitled to love though. That's nurturing, and all kids need nurtured.

Do you girls shave your arms? I wasn't too bothered by my arm hair but recently I've become self conscious about it. Idk if I should shave it, having arm stubble sounds so weird. They're pretty hairy though, like pic related.
Mine are similar and I shave them when I get them out (so not really over the winter). They do look slimmer/nicer shaved. A hair removal cream or waxing may be a better option, but I find the hair is quite fine so it’s not annoying stubble like on my legs
If you have money to spare then you could have IPL done either professionally or buy a machine. After the initial few treatments you’ll have less regrowth and just need top up treatments. Some people barely have to shave at all
The hair on my arms is so invisable that it'd be pointless. Weird seeing as I'm dark haired in general?
I leave my legs hairy so chances are I'd leave my arms alone even if they matched the girl in pic
I really relate to this, my life is pretty boring and I just do what I need to do to get by. I don't really have any want to make friends, to pursue romance etc. It's a comfortable dullness. But I dread having happy days becausr I know I'll be feeling real fucking terrible afterwards.>>657100
I also think I might be depressed but I don't have it in me to actually get a diagnosis and treatment, it isn't hindering my life (yet). This is a weird timeline and it's exacerbated a lot of issues I have. I feel like the awful mood after a good day is to like, compensate the lack of sadness on that day.

Thanks. Here's to you
Ugh, my ex found my vibrator that I'd bought specifically because we were having dead bedroom problems (his fault) and he flipped shit. Hopefully your husband isn't that insecure, and even if he is, like. Who cares? You deserve to have your sexual needs fulfilled both with and without him. He doesn't need to know if you don't want him to, I guess, but it also really shouldn't be a big deal because…it isn't. You can just tell him "Hey, I bought a vibrator for fun. I want to try it for myself sometime." End of, or however much or little you want to say.
I find it a bit hard to believe he never jacks off, I think everyone does at least sometimes, even in relationships, if not more often in them. Even if he doesn't, again, it doesn't mean that you're not allowed to. He and/or his insecurities don't dictate your self-sexual activity.

Nope, it's not normal. Maybe you have food allergies/intolerances or IBS. Buy GOOD probiotics and take it. Also you can try drink apple cider vinegar with water.

Normal - yes, a lot - no (not healthy).
I mean, if you just get through death of someone close then it's understable.
Still, you should work on that if that makes you feel bad and you think about it a lot. Find anxiety relief methods that work for you, or get into mediattion/mindfulness. If you won't work on it, it can turn into deeper anxiety or even a phobia in the future (or maybe other mental problem).
Also thinking about bad possibilities or hard past events is really bad/traumatic for your brain overall, it makes your stress level higher as if you actually get through bad events all the time (subconscious doesn't see diffrence between reality and your thoughts/dreams).
Got mine removed last year. My bottom wisdom teeth were impacted and started poking out just a little bit when I was in highschool and never gave me any issues until like 10 years later. I thought that I could just go with never getting them taken out, and I think for some people they just never cause any issue or may never fully erupt, but if they do start to erupt, that shit hurts
It's really up to you whether or not you want to get them taken out, but I recommend it. There's no downside to getting them out, save for the few days post surgery where it just kinda sucks. I never planned to get mine out but was forced to because the pain was unbearable. Even the slightest touch was awful.
There are people who can get into that state while still be conscious. Well, it's just a wild guess.
Maybe it's some neurological problem? If that's so, it's sounds serious.

Men are weak, but i cant stand women who feel so uwu, gotta explain to my hubby i need to masturbate too. Pathetic.>>657137
I hope you're a grown ass woman. just enjoy your vibrator. women are told all the time to hide themselves from people. Just enjoy it and he gets nasty about it, i'd double think my marriage to a pathethic man like that
The /r/personalfinance wiki is a good starting point. Investing is important (and extremely easy, laziness should not factor in) but first you should save a 6 month emergency fund.
Embrace your lack of interest in buying shit, keep it up for as long as possible.
Lmao what the fuck is it with people getting married and knowing next to nothing about each other
You must have dated before getting married? The subject of masturbation never came up? Ever? Why can’t you talk to him about this? You actually married this motherfucker? Are you kidding me? Christ no wonder marriages fail so often
I used to think my arms were so hairy
because they’re not perfectly smooth, it took me forever to accept they’re pretty much normal or maybe just slightly hairier than average. I fucking hate the beauty standards around female body hair.
Unless it’s really prominent, leave that shit alone. Don’t shave your arms, that sounds awful. The hair will grow back with a blunt edge and look darker. Waxing/sugaring would probably be best if you really want to remove it, but I’m sure it’s really not that bad. You probably think it’s much worse than it is because of advertising and shitty beauty standards.
I started using hair removal cream on my arms a few years ago, it's only occasional though. Like before an event or every couple of months. My arm hair doesn't really bother me since it's fairly light but I do think my skin looks nicer without it.
I wouldn't shave it, waxing or cream only.

I've been wanting to buy a second-hand well-fitting, normal-looking collared shirt made of breathable naturaural fibres ,like cotton or wool, that suites a petite frame for £35 or under (including shipping), and have been considering buying it from a Japanese site like yahoo!auctions, but I'm unsure what (Japanese) brands make the most high quality clothing that will last me at least 5 years. What are some high quality (Japanese) brands to look out for?

I've seen someone on lc thirst over Nyango Star (the crazy drummer playing at a kids show) and someone said they're actually female. Is this true? I can't find any info on this.
Thicc means curvy or like not-skinny but in a sexy way, basically when a girl is hot with t&a she's thicc
He's not insulting you he's just trying to call you hot like a clueless scrote
I’ve gained 20 pounds so I’m definitely bigger. I also have an hourglass body type too so it makes sense, but after seeing thicc be applied to everything from small with a bit of ass to literally big chungus I have no idea where I fall.>>657857
So it was a compliment. I guess it’s my own body issues & media brainwashing getting in the way but I just can’t comprehend scrotes actually being into the fuller bodies they meme about.
Yeah I wouldn't worry, scrotes are simple creatures lol

I don't think so, if anything you'll risk that the soap will clog it up further because it can't drain. Try boiling water first, if that doesn't work get one of those pic related things (idk what they're called). Make sure it's one made of rubber, not plastic. I've used it before myself and my shower was unclogged in minutes.
Now this is what I call a truly stupid ass question.

Do you guys think the United Nations will dissolve in the near future? Or is it possible that they improve their reputation?
They were already facing a strong liquidity crisis even before the pandemic and nowadays people and governments only seem to criticize it but I wish they could get their shit together, maybe I'm naive, but I do believe in diplomacy, international relations and their humanitarian projects are bringing education, food and health to millions of people in affected areas.

How do i smoke less? i don't wanna stop smoking but i genuinely hate smoking a pack a day because my throat feels like shit in the morning
I don’t know, anon, I’ve been taking some language classes at the UN in Africa and I feel like it’s mostly people sending lots of reports about a bunch of things. They never seem to reach a conclusion about anything.
I got to talk with a woman working there, she was an accountant and she seemed extremely disappointed about where the funds were going.
I think it’s not as amazing as I also thought it was when I was a teen. But I think it’s better if you just jump into the pool and try getting in, it’s nice for the curriculum.
Also, diplomatic relations seem to me like just a bunch of random parties with a tiny bit of discussion about important matters. It depends on the type of ambassador you have though, some ambassadors are business driven and will try to reach some accord with the people they’re dealing with; other ambassadors will be there just for the parties and random donations they can do just for clout.
I was kind of disappointed, but I guess it’s an overall nice job depending on your country and overall position.i just hate the idea of dealing with prisoners and drug shit
one pack a day? holy shit.
my first advice would be to stop smoking in the morning. The earlier you start smoking every day, the earlier you get into smoker mode aka craving the next cigarette all the time. I don’t know about you, but it worked for me very well, reducing it even further to not smoking everyday, and if I do it’s only a few at most and I used to smoke a lot as well. You will eventually get to the point where you can have longer periods without smoking at all and feel less and less addicted to it. good luck and composure to you!
I’m not so meditation guru nor an expert in the matters of mind and whatever is all of that big brain stuff.
But I guess the idea is that you’re not stuck thinking about the what if’s so you can be more of an action kind of person.
Like, you’re not supposed to constantly think about what you did 6 months ago in the bakery when you told the cashier “y-you too” while buying some bread, and thus ruining your whole day because of self-inflicted embarrassment.
You also shouldn’t be constantly thinking stuff like “what if I suddenly trip on my feet and fall over someone’s cat and then I get arrested forever?!” because that will only drain you mentally.
The idea of meditating is that you can stop these thoughts so you can focus on what’s important like paying bills, work stuff and the sorts.
As long as it makes you happy, I don’t see why not? Names are not that important unless you’re naming yourself something like moonlighted star of the seafoamed rock under the pact of the faeries
or ravenous beast
They didn't really address what they did, just started coming back with new videos. Also, recently Sohla did an interview with Vulture, and said
>she says. “And Chris Morocco [the director of the Test Kitchen] directly told me he didn’t like how quickly I moved up, so he wanted to make sure this person would never be allowed to develop recipes.” As she puts it, management didn’t want another “Sohla problem.” (Through a Condé Nast spokesperson, Morocco stated that this conversation did not happen.)
>“They couldn’t find a single Black person who they thought was good enough to work in the Test Kitchen,” she continues, “but they were bringing in really experienced people, who have been in the industry longer than me, to work below us. Think about it: Every other person who’s had this job, this was their first job, because this is an entry-level position. But when they want to hire a person of color for that position, we need to have a million years of experience

Nta but no, for the "free" ones you pay with your data, which defeats the purpose of a vpn for privacy.
A while ago I was looking into VPNs myself and I saw acorss a comparison sheet (https://thatoneprivacysite.net/
) that compares a lot of VPN providers on various different factors. I found out there's much more to it than just picking a paid VPN provider. For example, if the VPN provider is located in a so-called 5, 9 or 14 eyes country, there's concerns there because those countries share digital data with each other. Like, there's a LOT of factors that can potentionally affect how much your privacy really is protected with a certain VPN provider. I found it really daunting to choose one myself.>>658405
But that's just account protection though? If that's all you do you're still being tracked everywhere,

It's annoying because they keep repeating this "Places full of fembots/femcels posting about tfw no bf" shit.
How many people are posting "tfw no bf"? If anything, it's "I'm sick and tired of my bf", "My bf did all these things, am I crazy for being upset?", "Fuck having a bf, fuck men in general".
They really want to force parallels where there are none.

They unironically think that girls here are mad that chad won't fuck them and keep having fierce catfights only over male attention because that's literally how their brains perceive women as.
gay women don't exist ig
anyways if it's like it's your sister's husband's sister
We can have fierce catfights over literally anything.
I don't get the chad obsession with them, but it's almost an idolatry with them. Chads are observably attractive and that's roughly it. How many women do you know go for the chad experience? I know of none irl. I've come to realize that I've avoided them because I always thought they strolled along with a sense of pussy entitlement (and because being a 10/10 looks male probably meant you were borderline retarded andhad the personality of plain shaved ice), but evidently that's nearly all of the little fucks.
Kek they get triggered
that most women would just rather have a young leonardo than henry cavill. This chad shit is homoerotic, men are natural slaves and need hierarchy so they look up to the biggest dude. They have no empathy or logic so they can't understand that women don't want or feel the same way as them. Just accept your place in the world scrotes, chop off your dick and go serve chad.
If you can only see yourself enjoying sex with a woman, you're a lesbian.
I don't watch porn, but from what I've heard, it's not uncommon for lesbians to dislike lesbian porn because a lot of it is made with the male gaze in mind. I don't know if you hate all lesbian porn or just that specific type.

I came from a household where each parent had assaulted me in a way where it definitely wasn't a set punishment and was purely them losing it. In my first relationship I ended up hitting the guy during a couple of arguments and couldn't believe I had acted like that.
Sometimes these things do become a cycle. Get therapy. Try and learn what stressors led to your moms behaviour and hopefully you'll bypass repeating it yourself.

Yanomamis (and I'm sure other indigenous people, they're just the first ones I thought of) and Indian brides. Just because they change the piercing location by a bit does not change the fact they're obviously making spin-offs of decorations that have cultural significance. I don't know them either, but a quick google search shows they're from atlanta georgia.
Several indigenous peoples in South America and a few in the South Pacific wear feathers in the nose, the nose chain is more recognisable as worn by South Asian women.
These things they're wearing as edgy accessories don't even go with their outfits.
sure, just like box braids is just a hairstyle.
????? you asked who not what. Also, you can google so yourself lol
The reason why it’s not seen as a big deal in regards to them is because a lot of African and black tribes have a large history with piercings of this sort as well.
Piercings, tattoos, tribal wear relating to those are shared amongst a lot of cultures due to similar beliefs they share with each other.
are you sure it's not you who's triggered

Why isn't streaming and making quasi-political debates on youtube considered a "real job"? I enjoy watching streamers and I recognize that it requires a certain skill and entertaining personality if you want to make money out of it, and those people pay their taxes, and yet I struggle with considering it a "real job" and I wouldn't want to have a boyfriend who is a pro streamer or a youtuber talking about communism and class struggle from the comfort of his apartment set in middle class neighborhood
That anon was absolutely ready to die on that hill. They thought they had struck gold. They even made a box braids strawman in some weird pre-emptive "strike", kek. Just aggressive for no real reason.
All they had to do was Google "African nose piercing" to not make themselves look dumb.
I think it's the fact that technically anyone can be a streamer. Most people don't consider it as prestigious as being on TV or having a "real" career as a political analyst. Obviously, YouTube has gotten huge and popular channels can make a lot of money. Same with Twitch.
Most people don't consider it a "real job" yet because it's all still relatively new, but most of the political talking heads on cable news are woefully uninformed anyway, and having your own channel means you don't have to rely on connections or suck Roger Ailes' dick to get on TV.

Absolutely. They’re in most boards in general but the cosplay/Lolita board /cgl/ is known to have the most I think. Unfortunately that means the board gets baited by scrotes/incels a lot. Some retards found the board and never left.

Am I a low quality woman if all the men I seem to attract are losers who tend to be mostly sexually inexperienced? Does it mean I am simply a loser as well based on the men who like me? Also I have a noticed a pattern that a lot of bi men and men who happen to lift are into me, not sure what to think of that honestly. I also cannot fathom anyone could look at me and say they want me to peg them, lord.
Anon, don’t think stuff like those. Quit paying attention to what you read in some incel forum or scrote post.
Shit men are everywhere and they’re the majority of men out there, of course you won’t find a horde of decent men because they’re scarce, if not a myth.
If you think there might be something you want to improve of yourself because you
want it so you can make yourself feel better, go for it.
But don’t just decide to do random shit to improve
because that might make you a better quality of a woman
, it’s a shitty thought that will only make you feel frustrated, because bottom of the barrel men are always looking for women they can mess up.
I mean, that sounds nice. But for what reason? Do you want to actually be a sociable person or get into hobbies that are easy to get into, or is it outside pressure?
I don't find it hard to be a polite and nice person, but it is fake to a percent, as I don't truly care for people. You have to realize that most people are like this.

Male sexuality is a joke.
Genetically, there's no way of knowing. African-Americans are heavily mixed from chattel slavery because the white slavers had no knowledge/regard for DNA or tribe and were raping them back to back.
tl;dr: It's not appropriation, that's a stretch kek
thanks, it is possible. But I'm afraid that she's going to pull away from me. I hope we can still spend time together but i am scared she will resent me more and more. I thought she respected my views but Im not so sure. Hope she won't complain to trans friends and have them radicalize her against me, it really sucks. They are all online friends and it sucks that you can lose someone so quickly because of an ideology of people she's never met. shes not underage but the process is like grooming tbh, turning people against loved ones for normal things>>659625
she already knows but had reacted well at first. I never said anything harsh. Lately i think she is unhappy with me
Yeah, her online trans friends radicalizing her is a valid
concern. Online troons are a different breed. >the process is like grooming tbh
A friend of mine is actually detransitioning now, and he's said there's no other way he can put the influence he felt from the online community that pushed him into transitioning than brainwashing. I wish/hope you could protect her from it.
The fact that she reacted well at first is good, though. I think it means that she's still rational and knows who she actually is beyond the online nonsense. Just try not to talk about it too much or too harshly. I'm sorry.
Thank you. I feel bad for your friend that he went through that, but it's good he's realized that and got out. Im sure it helps to have a friend like you. I know it makes me sound like a deranged facebook tradmom to call it cult-like, but it truly is. Especially the pushing people away and what your friend said about brainwashing. Im sure he knows how they treat detransitioners as well. Its just like a cult.
Im very sad and anxious. I don't want her to hate me or be hurt by my views. Im hoping I didnt fuck up irreparably talking about it, I'd happy we both pretend I said nothing if it keeps her in my life. Ty for the kind words i'll keep this all in mind.
I'd say it depends on location and how serious you are about one another. My boyfriend and I became "official" quickly and we both have family members nearby, so we ended up meeting each other's relatives within the first 2 months. Obviously if one of our families lived overseas or something that might not have been financially feasible, nor do I feel it would've really been necessary. I'm definitely of the mind that you are in a relationship with your partner alone, and their family may or may not play much of a role beyond occasional gatherings, although it would seem a bit odd to never
meet their relatives—unless I knew their family was terrible/abusive
/they'd cut them off for some reason?
