As an added note, don't infight ITT. It's one thing to comment on an anon's post, but it's another to try and start infighting with an anon by replying with a snarky response (ex. "what did you expect to happen anon?")

just let anon vent, if you want to be a nitpicky bitch head over to /pt/ or /snow/. no1currs about your shitty input.

I grew up isolated by overly religious parents. They "homeschooled" us. But they dropped the ball on schooling us, so we basically just did fuck all all day as kids. Had hardly any friends and the friends I did have (minus one) were manipulative assholes who gaslit the fuck out of me. Had to get my GED at 19. Tried going to college but couldn't get funding and failed most of the classes I was in and didn't know what I wanted to do anyway. Got an extremely lowpaying wageslave job that was also "union" (in spite of that we were still treated like cow shit and they took "union fees" out of our paychecks).

I also live somewhere far north/west which has a pretty small population. All anyone cares about here is either religion, hunting/fishing, smoking weed or a combination of those. Living in a small city makes me feel even more isolated. I really want to move to a different city, maybe even country, but I don't have the money and I honestly don't know if that would even help.

I have symptoms of different personality disorders like BPD, NPD and most of schizotypal PD. I find it really hard to make friends because I have nothing in common with anyone, and I'm really paranoid that everyone hates me. The more close I get to people, the more paranoid I am. I was severely depressed as a teen and an adult, but my sister was even more depressed than me and would act out (as in throw adult tantrums and kick/punch the walls) which took attention away from me. I begged my mom to get me a therapist at 17, but she never got me one until I was 25 and I just turned 26 which means I got kicked off of their insurance and can no longer go to therapy unless I pay for it. I briefly had a boyfriend but he turned out to be a porn addicted weeb who was in a circle of friends who were porn addicted weebs and they had a group chat where they'd share lolicon.

I'm pretty sure I'm retarded, too. I take things literally and have trouble understanding simple things. Ideally I would go back to college, but it's fucking expensive, and I've failed most of the classes I've taken because, well, I'm retarded. On top of that I don't even know what to do. My passion is linguistics but I've heard it's hard to make a career out of that.

I've been a NEET most of my life. I'm working now and I make roughly 2k a month, still not enough to live on here. I want to move out so bad because I'm so fucking sick of living with my parents. But I don't know how to make enough money. I'm in vocational school right now for medical billing and coding, but it's still going to be 10 months before I'm going to be able to get a job in that field.

I have so many things I wish I could do if I had friends. Like, I really want to get into table top gaming like DnD… but I have no idea how to meet people who are into that. I'm also afraid because it seems like gaming communities are full of guys like my ex and I don't want to fuck with that.

PLEASE SOMEONE COMFORT ME.

I feel so sick right now. Today I confided to my mom about my ex being a manipulative pathological liar. I told her to not contact his family and she said she wouldn't. The SAME DAY, I get a long apology text from him. This wasn't a coincidence and she obviously reached out to him or his family. I seriously feel fucking nauseous.

I don't know why I even bothered trusting her after he repeated violations of my privacy in the past. I feel so fucking angry, sick, and regretful right now. Fuck my life.

Why are only ugly guys into bdsm? I discovered last year that I am a sub and want to experiment with it, but I've been single almost ever since but I don't want to do it with just anybody.
I mostly like guys that aren't quite conveniently attractive so it's not like I'm expecting to find any 10/10 dudes, but I swear to god there are only guys that look like ProJared or worse that are into it.

Anons forcing "how dare she invite a friend over/go eat at a restaurant/go outside in general during a pandemic!!!" as milk need to get a life. The virus situation isn't as bad everywhere. In my area you can pretty much do whatever except have huge parties because the chances of getting infected are so low as long as you take care of your personal hygiene. Because all cons have been canceled for the past year it's especially reoccurring in cosplayer threads, anons throwing a fit about someone not wearing a mask to an outdoors photoshoot with 2 other people and dragging their spergfest for tens of posts contributing nothing. Please stop, it's embarrassing.

Genuinely feel like hot guys who can get cute women that they actually desire are way less likely to be into any weird shit. A lot of ugly men use BDSM as an outlet for the rage they feel internally because they know most women won’t find them physically attractive, and want to role-play the power they wish they actually possessed in their everyday lives.

it depends on the kind of bdsm you're talking about anon, like if you're into extreme degeneracy or 24/7 shit then of course the men who want that are going to be ugly. if you're talking about light bdsm, the odds of a hot guy being open to that are much higher

But it's something I've observed as well, my less-than-sexy friends seem to be more openly kinky, meanwhile the attractive ones are "vanilla". It's kind of funny because the kinksters bitterly shit on the hotties whenever the subject comes up, "ugh it's such a waste!

My thing is kinda weird, we have a few mutual friends, one of them is very close to me and this dude was pretty close to me up till shit happened with my and a few other friends health that made us too tired of his constant sad boy posting. He is a insightful dude with an actual brain but he is just like any other depressed scrote and thinks he has it the worst and can't seem to understand that therapy is pretty easily obtainable for him and would help, especially if he were to move. We used to bond over shit parents but after my dad died, in a pretty tragic way mind you, he never said anything, it almost seemed like he was jealous. He has a past of trying to talk sexually in the middle of deep convo, usually disguised as "these are the experiences guys go through" and it's icky and gross, especially because he has a gf who he never fucking opens up to. He has also jokingly bodyshamed the gf online in a reply to me, knowing she follows me and can see it. This dude is a teacher. Morbid curiousity tells me to keep him around but i will be careful not to give him any clothing or makeup advice, i had to learn that shit on my own too.

I bet it also has to do with confidence. Attractive people are more likely to have good self-esteem, and there's plenty of average or otherwise people who are happy as they are not to get into weird fetishes. It seems like all the kinky types have insecurity and other issues that drive them there, generally speaking

So I’ve been talking to this guy for a while as friends we ended up liking each other.

After meeting for a weekend and deciding we still wanted to pursue things romantically.

During planning me going to his town I mentioned being interested in a place close to it that he didn’t know about and even sent him a video about it, I was super exited as I had seen photos of it before and specifically said “I don’t mind what we do but I’d love to go here and maybe this restaurant during my stay”

Cut to a few weeks ago trip is cancelled due to COVID and we continue talking as often as we did before.


The day that I’m supposed to arrive he sent me photos of the place and said he got me something from the place, instead of waiting to go with me.


Once I said that I was hurt by his decision of not waiting for me his response was asking me if he couldn’t go places without me.

Nah I'm kind of just into lighter bdsm, not like nipple clasping upside down with hooks while someone motorboats my chest wearing a latex mask thing. While I want my boundaries pushed a bit, I don't want to go too far.
I honestly think I just want someone as a dom giving it to me rough as a coping mechanism after being in a relationship where I got continuously raped a few years ago. So with bdsm no matter how rough my partner is I have the power to say "no" or "stop" and having a partner that would actually respect those boundaries.

Posted in the old thread cuz i'm a dumbass.
I can't complain about this irl because I don't wanna be ungrateful but ughhh. I lost my job because of the pandemic and so did my mum, so her, my brother and I are going to move into my grandma's house because it's empty.
It only has two bedrooms, and we planned to make another one for me using space from the living room. Now she wants to just divide one of the two bedrooms which are very small and make two fucking cubicles for me and my brother because she doesn't want to lose living room space to decor.
I will have basically no privacy and no space to put most of my shit so I'll just probably have to somehow find another job and move out in like 2-3 months which is so stressful since I have no job and no one to live with. God, I hate this.

I'm assuming he saw my finally becoming independent and didn't want to drag me back home. but I had no time to prepare. in my mind he was sick but going to be okay, then out of nowhere he was home on comfort care and I took care of him and then watched him die two days later.

I'm so fucking sick being resented over the fact I had the "privilege" of having parents who aren't horrible and were half-way financially responsible. Like, I get so much misplaced contention over the fact I had certain leg ups, like help paying for college and being taught basic economic shit like investing in the stock market. It's not my fault their parents had three or four kids, despite working minimum wage jobs or barely any higher, and blew any potential savings on daily cigarettes, alcohol, scratch tickets, fast food, and whatever other white trash vices were more important than investing in their children's future.

Before anyone screams "classist"- I'm well aware that not every family is poor because of really bad choices and there are obviously countless scenarios outside of people's control. However, a lot of people are as bad off as they are because of bad choices, and the people who resent me for having a decent upbringing financially almost always come from backgrounds where their parents were just horrifically irresponsible.

Sounds like your family is afraid that she isn't able to care for herself well or will be lonely, so they're placing all their bets on the guy who's going to promise her a house and a family even if he's got issues because they figure it might be her best chance at happiness. They falsely equate his career status to stability for your sister, even though he sounds unstable in other ways.

Forgive if I'm off about that, there would just be no other explanation I could think of for why everyone else is okay with this except you. Clearly you're one of the only people who holds your sis to a higher standard. It's a shame his views are already rubbing off on her. I don't know what you could do or say to change her course but I do empathize.
I feel a bit like your sister. Not that I've married a scrote before but I do feel like at times what's supposed to be my 'support' circle has given up on me. Like they encouraged me to go forward with bad matches while negging whoever was good because they had some vision of who they saw me with versus who would actually be good for me in the long term.

I'm not even particularly wealthy, I'm just upper middle class.

Original venting anon here- I got a degree in a lucritive field and make 110k a year. I have been very smart with my money and have made very good investments, which have lead to a decent amount of money beyond my salary. However, I was able to do so because my parents helped me go to college. Does that qualify to you as doing "literally nothing"? Because to a lot of people, it seems to and it's honestly just irritating and factually incorrect. Completely devaluing a person's success because their parents did what parents are supposed to do is rather stupid as well as assholeish. Especially if you're supposed to be their friend. This also is not new to the pandemic era by any means.

I also don't believe I'm tone def. I don't talk about luxury shit unless it's relevent (for example, if someone mentions a place I've been to, I will mention I travelled there, amd things like that). However, I'm not going to dress differently or buy a lower end car because it makes some people feel bad to ve reminded that some people can afford nice things. That's a them problem.

I get what you're saying about keeping my friends group within my class so that I don't have this issue, but that feels like a really shitty thing to do. It also isn't really practical to execute.

My boyfriend had me check the 30+ texts he received in all caps from his mom to see if she’d apologized for her behaviour during christmas.

I’ve never had a person suicide bait me or a loved one in the past and she’s completely alone (also his only family), it’s not an unrealistic scenario. It was more of a guilt trip than an actual threat so I can’t even call the police on her.

My stepfather made more money than my bio dad, but was consistently worse off in terms of lifestyle, despite living in a location with a significantly lower cost of living. After growing up observing them both, as well as my wealthy and poor friends parents, and a sibling who dated a guy who won the fucking lottery, I have to agree that decision making plays a larger role than people want to believe.

The brutal reality is that it would not matter how much money you gave many poor people. You could give them 50 million dollars in a settlement (actually happened to someone I know) and they would spend it all. Every fucking penny. And in a few years they would be right back where they started. They could have 20 dollars left in their bank account, and KNOW that they need it for gas to get to work tomorrow, but instead they would impulsively spend it on fast food when they have a freezer full of overpriced TV dinners. Then of course later that night beg friends and family for money for gas. The wealthy people I know are frugal as fuck. They shop at costco. They have money because they don't spend it on stupid shit, and when they do buy something they don't need they make sure it's nice as hell and going to last.

My friends who grew up in wealthy environments but exhibited the qualities of my poor family members ended up poor. My friends who grew up in poor environments but exhibited the qualities of my wealthy family members ended up middle class. The ability to delay gratification is a severely necessary trait if you want to keep any of the money you earn. Yes shit is unfair, but it's also not entirely outside your control. You're not a helpless dandelion puff in the wind, you can orient yourself in the right direction. Doesn't mean the wind will always blow, but it's more effective than blaming everyone else and continuing to piss away everything you've got in a vain attempt to mask your insecurity.

Why the FUCK do you always act like anything asked of you is a big inconvenience? Mom just simply asked you throw the trash out who the fuck do you think you are just saying no to her like that. Half the time I want to smack the shit out of you for talking to her like that. When you left for school was the most peaceful 2.5 years in this house.

It doesn't sound like you've done anything wrong at all. I'm in a similar situation wrt having supportive parents and ultimately working into a six-figure job, and almost all of my friends from outside of work are far less well-off, even NEETs in some cases. I've found that being very honest/open about my own personal failings, being careful about what to complain and brag about and when, soliciting and respecting their input, and connecting over stuff that we're mutually interested in like local politics goes a long way. I don't think you should necessarily abandon your friends, but if they're being chronically resentful then you may either need to change the way you talk to them or find new friends, upper-middle class or not. It doesn't necessarily sound like a class problem but a shitty friend or communication problem.

I had an amazing weekend. I got a lot of things done. I feel great. This feeling is going to be ruined tomorrow when I go to work. Everyone will complain about the extra work, throw hissy fits, repeat their stories several times, and stand there and force me into listening to them no matter how much I ignore them. I'd be completely okay going the rest of my life without seeing any of them. We also have a bunch of new people which annoy me more. Stand there and do your job, you don't need to stare at me while I do mine or ask me twenty questions about my personal life while I'm working. People think I should smile and be friendly to everyone, fuck off. I get paid to do my job not listen to dipshit talk to themselves about Star Wars and what their wife makes them for dinner.

I also don’t like that some people act as if the rich are soulless demons who don’t work, while the poor are all these hard working, sweet angels. Plenty rich people worked hard for what they have, and also just because someone was born into money doesn’t mean they’ve had a perfect life.

I think a lot of the hatred of the rich is because people are unable to process their envy in a healthy way, so they paint a wealthier person as bad. Lot of it is just cope.

Fuck this shit. Just because you’re mad at your husband doesn’t mean you can put your anger out onto me. It’s not my fucking fault the both of you are retarded as shit and can’t talk things out like normal adults without flipping shit and breaking everything in the house. I can’t even bring myself to call you mom or dad because of all the pain you’ve brought me throughout my childhood, and you really have the audacity to compare me to my brother who you’ve never even tried to beat not once in his whole entire life. I literally have no emotional bond to either of these people. I remember the last time my dad touched me, it was so he could try to beat me. And that was just last year. Do you really think I want to help you out? When your husband doesn’t even want to clean up after himself, you need to take it up with him. God, the both of them are so goddamn retarded it leaves me speechless. I literally try to have as little contact with them as possible, but she tries to start shit with me by the littlest things. Fuck, I really don’t give a shit about either of you. The both of you never really cared about me, so why should I give a shit about you? I cry, you call me crazy. I don’t react, you say I’m retarded and I don’t care. Go and pamper your son who you love so much. Not once in my life have I ever been happy in the presence of the two of you. The only thing that I feel when I’m around the two of you is my flight or fight response. I hope the both of you forever live together in misery, just as you always have.

Anon, you are literally admitting that your parents helped you go to school. I'm not saying you didn't work hard (idk you, so maybe you did or you didn't), but you can't deny that someone having well-off parents can help a lot. If you didn't get into the school you got into, and didn't have the parents that you have, do you think you would still be in the place you are? Nepotism can play a big role in a person success, and that's usually luck based.

I'm not saying it's wrong to use nepotism to your advantage (that's what networking is for), but no one of "devaluing" your success by acknowledging the fact that you didn't completely do it on your own.

I know I just made a post about my brother a few days ago, but I just came to a realization about him.

Could it be that what he wants is a brother? We have an older brother, but he is barely in the house, our father died years ago and we don't spend much time with other family members. I said this because, just a few weeks ago he had a slumber party with his male ex-classmates, and I can swear, he hasn't been that happy with neither my mom or me, ever since a long time ago. He was laughing and having a fun time. That made me remember one of his birthdays, where he wasn't happy at all when we gave him the meal he asked for but when his friend came over, he suddendly was into the mood to celebrate. While mildly disappointed, I just thought that it happened because he was his friend; but then I got told by our mom that he may need another male figure in his life. I always believed that he thought that I was enough of a family to be seeing as someone he could trust on, but I am begining to fear that I may not be enough. Besides, he has made derogatory comments about me being a girl before.

I always wonder how different my life could have been if I were born as a guy, what kind of person I could have become, but now I can't stop thinking that if I were a man, maybe my brother would treat me less coldly, maybe he could like me more as another friend of his.

I know this is stupid, I don't want to believe that the reason he has been acting so badly is because of that, but I can't help but wonder if we could get a better relationship if I wasn't a girl.

I just want to go back when we were younger and we could have fun together.

I felt sad for the rest of the Christmas, because I putted so much effort just to get nothing back. Also everyone, including her knows that I do not use Notebooks so I feel like as if it was done on purpose.

I also wanted Christmas to be family-like, play a boardgame with everyone, but the second I suggested a game she left, along with other person (but with them its understandable, they are not good at english) so in the end I had to play a 5player game with 3 people in total.

I am failing to see the point you are trying to make. My point is, it is financially irresposible (and bad parenting, quite frankly) for parents to be wasting all their extra money on such unneccesarry vices instead of investing it in their child's future. What you're saying is completely irrelevant to that point.

>>703866
I do acknowledge it's an advantage, but I don't see how it's justifyable or necesarry to resent people, especially your friends, over getting help paying for college? And yes, the friends my OP is about DO devalue my success. They don't just acknowledge that parental help is an advantage, they straight up devalue everything I've accomplished or decions I made. And they get angry over me merely existing around them wearing nice things or driving a nice car. Like, they're letting their misplaced anger get in the way of our friendship.

Also, not trying to be snarky, but just so you know- you're using the word neoptism wrong. Neopotism is when you're given favorable treatment that you wouldn't otherwise get, because your parent is an authority figure. For example- if your dad is a CEO and hires you for a job you are underqualified for, just because your his kid.

Now it has been 3 times in the last 2 months were I have had these spells where I am super weak and all over body aches, sometimes headache. Last time I got tested for covid and it was negative.
I'm going to try to go to the doctor again but, god, I just know they are going to tell me I'm making it up again. Idk, am I fucking stupid and it is all in my head?

So I decided next year a thoughtful card will suffice because spending $5 to buy a card and pay for postage is no skin off my bones. I used to enjoy spoiling her with Lush giftsets and Starbucks cards, but she's past 20 now, employed, and is fully capable of reciprocating my efforts if she really wanted to but she doesn't.

Maybe I'm just petty, but I would ask her to give your gift back, and return the notebook to her. It's clear she dislikes you. In the future maybe you two can just agree to not give gifts to eachother? Maybe asking for the gift back will incite drama but, like I said I'm petty so that's just what I though of.

If she doesn't wanna give the gift back, then maybe you can give it to younger family friend or donate it or something.

I’m surprised my sister hasn’t contacted me at all regarding Christmas. I had Christmas Eve off and worked Christmas Day but they didn’t call or text me. I haven’t given my sister, her two kids or my parents their gifts yet and since no one’s said anything about it, or even asked when we can meet up to exchange I’m thinking about returning them all. I know it sounds bitchy and selfish but it’s weird that family with smartphones that are on facebook all day can’t even take a minute to talk to me on a holiday.

I agree with this 100% and I don't see how anyone who grew up poor around other poor people can genuinely see them all universally as hardworking down on their luck angels. I've noticed a lot of the putting the poor on a pedestal comes from middle/lower middle class people who haven't actually been heavily exposed to poor people.

Just like with any group, there are some shitty fucking poor people. People who will steal from individuals, even friends or family, people who will spit out as many kids as they please with no fucks given about that child's quality of life, people who will make bad decisions every step of the way but still make where they ended up someone else's fault. Not to mention, tons of poor people are racist AF and vote against their best interests all the time. They will literally vote for politicians who openly want to slash benefits they use.

So yeah. This meme of putting poor people on a pedestal needs to fucking die. A lot of rich people suck and a lot of poor people suck. A lot of people in between suck, too. Your financial situation in no way reflects how good of a person you are.

I just want some fucking health insurance but I fucking hate that I make "too much" to qualify for subsidized care (almost double the cutoff required, even though I make near minimum wage in my state and can't afford to even move out on my wage). The premiums are somewhat reasonable after the estimated financial help I'm supposed to receive, but the god damn deductibles are in the thousands- what's the point? I'm so fucking frustrated, I hate the American healthcare system, why is it so fucking dogshit? My company finally sorted out the health insurance but they're only contributing $300 towards whatever plan we get… the cheapest plan being almost $700 with deductible being almost $9k. I might as well go through the marketplace so I can get a slightly cheaper premium/very low deductible if I was to pay that premium.

So many of my coworkers say "Well you don't NEED health insurance, you're young and healthy." Ok, but what's so bad about some preventative care? I haven't seen a doctor in years, if I've got some shit bubbling up right now, then I have no fucking idea of it. If I ended up paying for health insurance, I'd end up sacrificing the financial cushion I set for myself and my family. I fucking hate this shit so much.

God I hope not… is it normal for it not to be constant? sometimes I can look at myself and think I look okay. one time I took a selfie, a very rare thing for me, and thought "wow, I don't hate this" and made it my pfp on my socials. I even got some compliments and felt pretty good about it. then again, i woke up the next day and i swear it looked completely different to me. I thought I could push through it and kept it up as "exposure therapy" hoping I could learn to like it again but I was just absolutely miserable every time I'd get a message and see my face.

I also don't think about or obsess over my appearance often… but that's more of a choice to spare myself the grief, I think. as a teen I was always body checking and looking in mirrors and I guess instead of learning to deal with it I just stopped looking at myself entirely so I wouldn't think about it as much. my skin/hair routine has suffered as a result though… making me more insecure about my features… I hate this

I used to be pretty close to my cousin, until she married a giant manchild with a rotten walnut for a brain.

He has no respect for her, and has openly admitted so to everyone who comments on his attitude towards her. If a woman tells him that he's being a giant asshole, he just laughs in their face.

Apparently my cousin married him because she enjoys having someone to mother and take care of (ick). Nevermind that now when they have three actual kids, he's still not holding up his end as a father. Women in my family applaud him on the rare occasion he does change a diaper or put the kids to sleep. My mother knows how much I hate him, and updates me whenever this happens as some sort of "proof" that he actually does care. I'm told to not be rude towards him, nevermind that he can make all the jokes he wants about women and horrible "feminazis" at the dinner table, in front of his kids.

He also made the argument that he can't change his daughter's diapers because seeing her naked makes him feel like a pedophile, which raises enough red flags for me already. I was scolded for telling him how creepy that was. No matter what I say, my comments are constantly shut down by the other women in my family. My cousin just sits in silence and neither agrees or disagrees with anyone, but it's clear that she's depressed because she's stuck in a full time job with four children, two of them toddlers, tons of debt and no savings.

I have barely seen them this year due to the pandemic, but a few of us in the family have a group chat where we post pictures and updates about our lives. My cousin posted a picture of the oven having burnt cheese stuck to the bottom because her husband didn't bother to use a baking sheet for his frozen pizza. I asked why is she cleaning up his mess. He told me to mind my own fucking business, because apparently he doesn't care if the kitchen smells burnt, and if my cousin does - it's her problem to deal with.

I have now blocked him on every social media, and plan to barely talk or look at him whenever we meet in real life. If I'm not allowed to tell him what I think of him, I'm not gonna give him any attention at all.

I hate how much my mom encourages codependency in our family. After living at home for covid I'm thinking of distancing myself from the family. Not cutting them off altogether because they aren't abusive or anything, but I just need to get away from an environment that encourages mediocrity. Also my bipolar brother calling my mom every single day this christmas and my mom always putting him on speakerphone makes me want to fucking lose it. What makes her think I want to listen to his depressing complaining about his problems(that are his own fault) I need my own space so bad holy shit fuck these people they raised me to be a joke with no goals. When I was 21 I wanted to get out of the house because the living situation was horrible back then, my brother was drunk all the time but my mom kept discouraging me to leave, saying that there was no reason to live on my own, I really just want to tell her that I hate this shitty family bc she doesn't understand why I could possibly want to avoid her and my brothers problems.

Good for you. The people in your family allowing him to be a giant fucking asshole, the women including your cousin, are at least part of the reason he's so flagrant about being the way he is.

I keep putting off dating until I lose a few more kg even though I'm already pretty slim, idk how fat or bad bodied people (who aren't super confident) can stand to have sex because I'm too self conscious about my imperfections as is.

There are lots of women who seem to get legitimate self esteem boosts from male attention though, I rarely trust a man's compliments but maybe if you're willing to believe them it's possible to both hate yourself and want a guy around.

My bf did something super cunty with plausible deniability that he's just an oaf. But it felt like he tested me or basically did something on purpose so I wouldn't ask for his help again.
I drove my car with him to pick up a sushi order. He didn't want any. I realized going out to the car that the server got my roe nigiri order wrong and rang it as sashimi, so the roe sat precariously on these dumb cucumber boats. It was super busy and I didn't want to wait inside while they remade it. I explained and asked bf to be super careful cause it was two containers stacked on top of each other. When we got to the apartment, before getting out of the car I reminded him to be careful. He just looked at me so slow? As in he couldn't comprehend that I had asked him to carry the food up. It's like the wheels in his head were turning and making decisions about something. I grabbed his thermos for him and was waiting for him to open his door and get out so I could lock my car. He didn't hold the bag by the plastic handles, he held it by the sides as he fumbled. I didn't want to tell him what to do cause I thought he had his grip. I didn't want to be a naggy mommy and tell him how one gets out of a car and holds a bag. It was like he forgot how to do both but he finally unbuckled, opened the door, and turned to motion to get out. So I turn to my side to get out and I hear my damn sushi container drop and spill out to the pavement after I just cautioned. Really?!
Half of the roe spilled to the road and the rest was in a pool at the bottom of the container.
I was really mad. He's all like "I'll pay you back!" So what? $8? I make free homecooked food for you almost every night dude, and sometimes I even make free lunch for you to take to work. I just asked you to be competent for a minute and you failed that. I stormed away with my sad carry out bag and he follows me behind saying "This is why you shouldn't trust me with these things." How convenient, so this is all actually my fault! So I said how yeah, I won't be trusting him to do shit for me anymore if that's his excuse.

I feel like he was trying to test a script with me. Like he wanted me to mollycoddle him and tell him that wasting half my food was okie dokie cause it was just an assident, with the added bonus of me subvertly never asking for his help (aka shit he doesn't want to do) ever again lest this be the consequence. But fuck it. I'm glad I was upset and told him exactly how I felt, he should feel a little bad. I'm still gonna ask him for help if I need it and be real shitty if he gives me trouble about small shit like helping me carry a fucking bag. Call me a bitch, idc.

I was using my friend's laptop to google something and the first website suggestion was a link to my old Tumblr (with my stupid personal diary type shit). Had never told her I even had a Tumblr but she found it anyway, which kind of spooked me off of there. When I started dating my boyfriend he asked to follow my Twitter - we both follow a lot of online personality types so it would have been inevitable that he'd ask & there way no way to deny it. Not like I had anything incriminating on there but I just liked the separation of my IRL & online life.

It just feels weird that I can't shout into the void of the internet anymore. There's always at least 1-2 people I know IRL following me at any time and I just don't want people knowing about all my fucking breakdowns.

Those are totally 100% reasonable criteria; I was expecting something ridiculous. Where have you been meeting guys? Back in school I sat in on a visiting lecturer's talk about the internet and relationships; apparently for a little while online relationships had a much higher chance of success because people were bonding in special interest groups, but dating apps (which were emerging at the time) were erasing the gains because people on dating apps connect over superficial stuff that doesn't predict relationship success rather than over shared interests and values. You could try going to special interest meet-ups and trying to meet someone through one of those. I'm sure there are plenty of great guys out there who would be interested in you, and it's not like you're an old hag. My MIL is a wonderful woman who had to wait until her mid-30's until she managed to meet the right man, and by all accounts he was an all-around amazing person too.

I'm opposed to using dating apps for this reason, I think it's important for there to be some element of chance in falling in love. Dating apps tend to sterilize the process and reduce it to superficiality like you said. It feels too much like creating a resume for prospective love/hookups. Not shitting on people who use them, everyone's got their reasons.

I've been in the same relationship for nearly a decade. You obviously won't know what somebody is really like until you move in with them, but you can mitigate risk, i.e. make good decisions about who to invest your time in before then. If you're so worried about shacking up with a loser that you either don't use good judgment in determining who to date or avoid dating then you're going to end up screwed or alone.

You're doing the right thing imo. It's way better to bond organically than to flip through a bunch of men in search of someone who meets a shallow set of criteria and meet up with them in hopes that they're not shitty.

I feel so fucking boring cause me and my friends don’t travel, but also most of my friends are broke and have never been on a plane before. Ive traveled extensively with my family but I’m reaching the age where it’s getting uncool, I keep meeting people from college who live in more well-off areas than I do so they and their friends go on 2+ vacations per summer, including out of country. Am I just friends with the wrong people? Do I need to find richer friends?

I saw another anon mention this a while ago when I was searching it, but it's too late to reply now, so here I am

Anyone saw those devacurl hair damage videos by Ayesha Malik? I saw those when they came out, and it's sad and all, but something about her rubs me the wrong way. She's just so melodramatic and talks in a way like no one could possibly understand her pain, because her hair was sooo much prettier than anyone else's. Maybe I'm reading too much into her presentation. BUT, the part that pissed me off, was her saying she's going to have to cut off all her hair/shave her head, before disappearing for months. Then a youtube friend of hers, India Batson, actually played a voicemail from Ayesha saying she had to shave her head - meaning, she had, at that point, ALREADY shaved her head. Then she pops up, a few months later, to show how her hair was perfectly back to normal - still long and barely changed.

I mean, lots of girls/women listened to her and used devacurl because Ayesha promoted it, then stopped using it because she said it was damaging her hair - so she knows her influence over her audience. But she blatantly lies and said she cut off all her hair, which was probably imitated by some of her viewers who thought they needed to do that to grow back healthy hair? That's so fucking disingenuous and stupid. Ughhh I don't even have curly hair I don't know how I got so invested in this drama

when I was a housekeeper (I'm a highly educated immigrant, literally nobody here wants to hire immigrants where I live unless it's to work in fast food or cleaning firms) people used to treat me like garbage and assume I'm stupid just because I speak with an accent and work as a housekeeper. We also operated on a review-based system so even if someone was an absolute cunt to you and gave you a shit rating, you had to be nice or they would complain to your supervisor.

at some point a rich fucking woman who lived in a literal mansion hired me for 1 hour to clean her mirrors and threw a tantrum when I didn't also clean the floors. the house was spotless, there was nothing else to clean, because another cleaner had been there that day (she didn't like how she left streaks on the mirrors so she hired me). she called me stupid, I told her if she's so much smarter than me she should be able to clean her own floors and mirrors.

people who have never had to work a day in their lives love to shit on min wage workers because they know that will never be them.

I’ve made posts venting about this same thing but it’s bothering me so much. I just realized that in high school my relationship was incredibly psychologically abusive and it’s so fucking enraging.

I’m just feeling such rage, discomfort, and disgust right now. He texted me a long apology message a couple days ago (he still has my # for some reason) and I sent a short nice reply because I felt pity for him but I should’ve been so much harsher.

I'm in a filthy isolation room in a psych ward and won't be allowed into gen pop until the 1st.

I'm not allowed to use communal areas like the shower so I'm filthy and the toilet is prison-style.
Another inpatient got into my room and woke me up by trying to fist me about a week ago and the hospital got the police involved and she keeps hanging out outside my room chatting with everyone. I wish she would just fuck off.
I've got nerve damage in my leg which leaves me a screaming wreck at night and neither the physio nor the pain clinic know what to do. I'm on paracetamol, ibuprofen and codeine four times a day and amitriptyline at night but it doesn't even touch it. The nurse last night did a full on "I pray to the father that this body be healed" thing rather than give me some tramadol. It was actually really nice of her but still.

idk where to put this i just wanna bitch about someone i knew and not care if i sound like a whiney baby.

she was an uwu ana-chan qween in highschool but recently trooned out as a “gay trans man” and cut off all her hair and started dressing as a man. then less than a year later decided she was a “they/them” and came full circle back to wearing women’s clothes and makeup. like what was the fucking point? were you traumatized that the trans man you were with in highschool managed to ditch you for a cis man? did it make you feel inadequate as a woman? no wonder she’s a fucking neet.
she always had something as a “gotcha!” whenever someone would try to call her out on her shit. oh she’s having trouble at home, or she’s just hangry bc she’s poor and doesn’t have anything to eat and totally not bc she’s anorexic, wah she tried to kill herself so you call her out on how totally manipulative it is, and now it’s you can’t say anything bad bc otherwise you’re transphobic.
she was so melodramatic and over the top in highschool so it’s nice to see she hasn’t changed. always needing the spotlight to be on her. whats more is that she’s been travelling and having friends over during a fucking lockdown so i’m not surprised she’s still the entitled self centered brat that i knew growing up. apparently everyone else she keeps around her is also either braindead or scared of her rage bc all she gets is asspats on her socials, no matter how far she travels outside of the bubble.

I mean that's the problem. You can't force people to like you, and the more you try, the less they probably will.

While I'm really happy that he loves me the way I am, I am probably average or slightly below average (I kinda look similar to Kirsten Stewart… or Venus but with a longer face, fuller lips and less mousy) and could go for a nose job and some lip fillers.

Plastic surgery isn't worth it in most cases. A lot of people who get it either regret it or later on need to get it fixed and dump more money into it to remove it because it warps over time.

Instead focus on working out, drinking water, using carmex. (I like putting on a little carmex before I sleep and then waking up to naturally plumped lips) Selfcare/working out is more healthy for you and you can look so much better inside out and feel good about it.

Come home to the beautiful tree cut down. His hillbilly friends are chain sawing it up. Now we get to listen to them do that the entire week and weekend. They're scaring my chickens with the noise. And now we have less privacy. Everyone who drives by will be able to see into our windows and backyard. Theres a huge gap between the other pine tree and the big bush beside the road, it's hideous, I don't want to look at that retards house anymore than I already have to. And he was talking about cutting down the smaller trees on the property line so that will probably be next. This guy claims him and his wife love the woods in the back but he's always destroying it.

I fucking hate the stereotype that you have to have natural colored hair at work, I have silver hair and I know I might be pushing it by applying for jobs with clearly dyed hair but I have still gotten interviews for high-paying administrative positions at big companies like Ford (sadly always gotten out-rivaled by someone with more experience or from their sister companies).
I know it is brattish of me to not want to dye my hair a natural color like my family is pushing me to, but it is clearly not a problem on the market since the focus seems to mainly be on my resume. I REALLY want to be able to keep dying my hair since I hate myself and dying my hair and doing my nails are the only things I can control that makes me somewhat happy with myself.
Who knows, maybe I would get more interviews if I had my natural brown hair and maybe I'm tripping myself up by doing this.

Hospitals in my country have stopped providing necessary care because of covid patients taking up all the space. And regular healthcare was already put to a complete halt. Imagine not receiving your cancer treatment to save or prolong your life because people decided that going to the mall shopping for christmas presents was more important than not putting even more unnessecary pressure on the national healthcare system, it's literally come to that point. If I've learnt one thing from this pandemic it's that people are disgustingly egoistical.

But that is something I never understood, why would having pink or blue hair affect how employable you are? The focus should be on your resume and references, not the hair. What should matter is how you can deliver as am employee. I can see it being judged if it's really washed out because then it can give the impression that you don't really take care of yourself, but if it looks fresh and well taken care of why would it be different from dying your hair a natural color?

I don't get people who claim that talent and hard work is all you need to success in art. It's bullshit. Your class/economic background and connections are just as important, if not more. Here where I live, the majority of kids who got into drama school or fine arts academy had private lessons or paid courses. A working class 15-20 year old won't have 2k to spend on a 3 months course. Becoming an actor here is impossible without higher education. Even actors playing in shitty tv dramas graduated from drama schools. I remember Christopher Eccleston talking about the lack of working class representation in the arts. He said he could not have gone to drama school today, because his parents could not have afforded to pay for it. But in my country, where we have "free" higher education, the wast majority of kids who got into good drama or art schools had months of training in paid preparatory courses, and that's something a working class kid wouldn't be able to afford. So there's more to this problem than just whether higher education is public or not. Art became completely commodified by the upper class.
Now, when you take playing an instrument seriously, not just as a hobby. Even something "pleb" tier like a guitar (one of the cheapest options). If your parents are well educated and upper or middle class there are higher chances they will take your art-related interests more seriously and they won't force you to go to work right after high school, you can just get your instruments and focus on creating bedroom pop or some other normie shit, and you can still live with your parents who will pay for your food etc. But if you don't have this privilege and you have to work 8 hours a day 5 days a week to support yourself, you won't have nearly the same amount of time for practice. There's a couple of industry plants who started like this because their parents paid for everything and some of them also had connections in the music industry as either artists or corporate marketers. And yet, their rise to fame is painted by them and the media as organic and humble. "Hey look, this young person is JUST like you! You can just create a couple of songs in your room and become famous out of nowhere!" They will never ackowledge their privilege, they're disconnected from reality. I won't even mention the difference in mentality and motivation of someone who had parents doing art-related stuff and showing them support, and someone who not only didn't have that but was also constantly discouraged by family who could never-ever see art as a serious career path. Although industry plants existed for many years, in the 90s and even early 00s it was still possible to have an organic, mainstream success. But now it's almost impossible or highly unlikely. The music industry is 100% controlled and saturated. They perfected the recipe for a star so now stars are made, not born. Why would they take risks with an "outsider", especially from a working class, if they can just create a star from the scratch and have full control over them. I'm so pissed thinking about talented and sensitive people who just gave up at some point because they weren't able to focus on art because they didn't have the class privilege

I feel these days it's getting harder to be an authentic artist because so many people claim to be them when they're not or have little talent. These days with music it's just having a weird aesthetic, create some shocking ass lyrics and thread together a song. Go viral.

Ppcocaine, Melanie Martinez with their weird kiddie vibe. Gaga did it by being a freak back in the day. You've always got people who go with their niche and they run with that.

There's no care for proper talent anymore I find. It's all what's catchy, what's popular for the sake of it being popular really.

Acting is just now anyone who is already famous getting a role despite not being able to act all that well or they've got the right connections. That's it.

I can't even name a movie that I last enjoyed either because everything feels the same these days. Music, movies. But I can watch stuff from the 80s and 90s and it's actually fucking good.

That's the set precedent, anon: nobody can make money or a name for themselves in arts or entertainment as long as they have bills to pay. It doesn't matter how many people you know or how dedicated your fans are, it's about who in the existing industry you know. Gatekeeping, Nepotism is an economic tool just like poverty, but until it's well known enough that people get collectively angry and laws start changing that's the way it's gonna stay. Young people create trends that older, fading rich assholes buy into so they can cling to relevance, they have a vested interest in making sure each new generation of young people can't take their lives into their own hands. Trying to fund your own dreams is impossible when working normal jobs won't even cover standard living expenses like rent, food and healthcare, now imagine trying to produce and promote yourself with no money after working all week? You can't. And sure, there are ways for new talent to make it but they're basically casting couches.

All musicians in the insudtry now were vouched for by someone else or is being used to make money by someone else. Music is a business, so if you want to be a real musician and live for the music and your fans, you cannot give a fuck about fame.

Kurt Cobain worked as a janitor and he slept in his friend's car. Now mainstream music lacks any kind of edge, dirt and anger, because those people have literally nothing to be angry about.

This morning they had a go at me because apparently I was typing loudly. The only email I wrote all morning.

The only thing I've ever been genuinely passionate about and ever felt like I "just knew" that this was what I was meant to do is fiction writing, but that isn't a practical career goal. I don't even have much hope that I can get a job that is even related to any kind of writing. I'm not willing to be a starving artist because I'm too pretentious.

I know you deleted but I just wanted to say that I feel the same and suffered similarly.
My mom was a middle school teacher with a narcissistic personality so on top of thinking that she already knew better, her image couldn't be had with admitting she fucked up enough for her daughter to merit some therapy. She only wanted therapy for me when my bio dad was being a shit to me but that was just a session so she could confirm her victim status and assign blame for my state on anyone else but herself. She spent most of the time stigmatizing that therapy was only for the uber crazies, and she would get super pissed whenever I'd imply she needed some herself. I didn't know what personality disorders were when I was a young teen outside of depression, but she acted unhinged enough sometimes where I'd say that she was crazy, overreacting, or behaving irrationally. That was enough to stoke her rage screaming "Don't psychoanalyse me!" I was like, 15, lmao. I couldn't imagine being so threatened by my own child.
Well, I spent most of my teenage and early 20s mimicking her same traits and bullshit because it was normalized to me. I had disordered and unhealthy romantic relationships, shallow friendships, and zero coping skills for stress because seeing her act and put on a fake face for the outside world was all I known. People were harsh on me, and I endured some pretty severe consequences. It took doing extreme introspection and reading before I started to change.

But you know I'm happy when I see teenage girls batted for. I wish so badly that I had someone truly in my corner growing up. It upsets me that I didn't have that lot for myself, but I see people standing up for girls and women as a net benefit for our gender.

I can relate. I've thought off and on about just committing and really trying to submit somewhere seriously though. You see how much shit is published, right? I fundamentally agree with you about connections and stuff, but sometimes those things can be developed over time, or they can start somewhere small and grow into something else.

What kind of work are you pursuing in the meanwhile? Have you thought about keeping a writing blog or journal for yourself? It can be fun to play with ideas and maybe something will really take off. There are also some financial scholarships and funds for creative writing. I've never applied for any of them but some real dipshits sometimes get them so there must be a way to do it.

I"m sitting here trying to finish a grad degree and I know that my field needs people like me. The way I think is different (sorry if that sounds self-absorbed, I just mean that I'm interested in bigger cultural themes while operating in a field that tends to focus on small details). I like to take on interesting topics, but the lack of support and excitement during the "development" phases of my projects is frustrating. I take a lot of pride in how I write, too, and I like my work to be elegantly presented. So if I don't like how I'm writing, I end up not writing anything. This is pretty bad for depression and progress. I'd like to commit to something in 2021 for myself - a kind of writing schedule - and see if anything comes of it. Maybe you'd like to try the same?

Anon I have a lot of similar hangups to you and I often end up writing nothing of value because I get entangled in my own planning stages. I wish I had more of a motivation to write, I'm going to try at least write every few days in the forthcoming year, but I'm already afraid I'm falling behind. I value your dedication to your craft that you have, I wish you luck. I want to be in media or end up writing a successful project but it's insanely hard to keep track of anything with a disorganized brain like mine

Holy crap anon, my dad is the same way with me. I was pollyanna about this for years, believing he loved me in his own way, but over Christmas this year it just hit me that I can't take it anymore. Anything personal or an anecdote I share to him, over text or IRL, is met with exaggerated boredom and disinterest, as in "yeah, and?" Like who talks to people like that??!! Sharing problems, forget it. Ignored, or told it's my own fault. Never, ever, a word of sympathy or kindness. Yet I'm supposed to grind it down and live with it and never react. And yet he loves to spend the little time he does communicate with me, complaining about his own problems, never accepting solutions or even sympathy from me, his own daughter. It's like he never gained respect for me, ever since I was fucking born. Or something went so wrong that I once was an addict, I never stole from him or lied, yet I'm trash to him forever.
I have children now that he doesn't give one shit about. Never makes time for them, and when I used to invite him he would blow it off.
He's awful. It's like what you said, every comment I make is an excuse to put me down. I talk about a job, it's "No way, you can't do that, you're not capable." Mention the kids and he practically yawns in my face.
And yet if I start calling this out, the rage and denial come in to play. His childhood was fucked up allegedly, he left his siblings and mom for decades, bc they drank and used, and now he wants to be close to them.
He went from straight edge Evangelical christian family man, to depressed, weed smoking boomer. He says the church was a cult and there is no God.
Living with him during my addiction, I felt like I deserved to die, because he would silently rage slamming kitchenware. And yet for years in early recovery I gave him so much credit, just for not tossing me out on my ass. That's all he did though. I praised him to the heavens for it. And now I'm tired and I see through my previous blinders that I wanted to believe he has affection for me that will one day open up. Now I'm done. Fuck him, he wants to die alone so bad. He makes me feel like an outcast in my own family that they don't need or want me around, nor my children, now that we're happy on our own.

I feel so insecure now and paranoid venting about things that genuinely make me feel depressed or hurt in general. I think a previous vent thread i vented about something that i felt hurt by, and people just came at me with snarky comments and just mocking me even going to the length to screenshot it and post it onto another thread mocking me.

Maybe im just being petty but, that shit hurt even more than the thing that hurt me i vented about. Im really trying not to vent about anything i feel very hurt by that people might take advantage of to make jokes that aren't even needed just because they think it shouldn't affect me and that it sounds dumb when in actuality it does affect me and it sounds logical to me to feel hurt by. I literally just want to vent without any judgement, i just want people to have a sort of understanding about my situations and just try to tell me what to do to make things better or what i should try to do instead of straight up clowning on me.

I do not even wanna say what i vented about because i just fear that the people who mocked me for it will try to mock me even more, it just gives me so much paranoia and i really fucking hate it.

I hate how I'm always so much happier when I'm talking to a guy I like. I've never been in a real long term relationship as an adult, and I'm okay with that. I have a consistent FWB, which helps a lot, but at this point in my life I'm comfortable with the thought of being single forever. But once every year or two a guy comes along and I like him, and all of a sudden my overall disposition is so much better. I'm in a better mood, I feel more motivated, etc.

I literally get up every damn day with some sort of plan in mind for what I'm going to write/how much I'm going to write. Anxiety, depression and general imposter syndrome interrupts those plans approximately 70% of the time. At this point, I feel good if I can even write anything at all.

They let me live with them when I was a teenager which I appreciate so much but I had to buy my own clothes, supplies and toiletries with a part-time job while going to school. It didn't teach me anything but to be stressed and rely on my friend's mom for tampons. I don't even want money… Idk this all sounds super selfish. I just wanted some sort of support. They didn't offer it emotionally or financially but I guess I didn't have to keep living with my drunk ass mom (who they defended randomly without me even bringing her up.)

I self-harmed from ages 12-22 and my mom knew the entire time and just ignored it. I get that as an adult and teen that shit was my choice/responsibility. But how can you look at a 12-year old girl with cuts on her arm and just not do anything about it?

She confronted me about it a couple times but she was always super weird and cold about it. Like when I was 14 she saw bloody paper towels and razors with the blades ripped out in my trash and she said "looks like someone's having another emo phase" and then went to bed for the rest of the day.

And I UNDERSTAND that she had her own mental health shit and divorce drama and that she was probably genuinely overwhelmed. But for fucks sake mom if you aren't capable of dealing with it pick up the phone and call someone who can. There WAS support available, there were family members and school counselors and etc etc etc that could have helped. But she's a prideful retard and didn't want to be seen as a bad mom so she locked herself in her room and let it happen. I hate her and I don't feel bad about hating her.

this is going to sound so cringe but. Throughout the last 10 years I’ve had many male friends confess they “love me” or like me. While more than half were online it was still a pattern of me simply thinking I finally found someone with common interests and getting out of my shell a bit. I know this isn’t a unique situation. I’m really shy and dry on the surface but once I’m comfortable I’m borderline like. annoying autistic anime girl trope? which is why I think men feel the way they do despite me not flirting or anything. All I do is give support, encourage their positive interests and I’ve been told I’m quite “bubbly” when I’m myself.

Not gonna lie it’s a bit annoying. I don’t want to be their mothers, their gfs, their saviour. I just want a friend. And every time it happens and I inevitably don’t feel the same or already have a partner they either get really sad, block me, cling onto hope or other things. I’m not trying to shit on these men because obviously I liked them enough to spend time with them on a platonic level and get some good laughs, but idk what it is about me that makes men feel this way. Is my dumbness and nativité what’s doing it? I heard that sometimes when a girl isn’t sexual at all it makes men want to dirty them or something.

I probably sound like a 16 year girl but it was nice to get it off of my chest. I just wanna shitpost and play games to forget about work and and the effort it takes to glow up emotionally, mentally and physically.

As a kid I would try to direct him by saying "no" or "down" and she'd get really offended at me for "yelling at her dog", and when I explained I'm trying to teach him she would proceed to show me how it's done by talking to him in the tone you'd reserve for a shy toddler, and in full sentences. When I said "Mom dogs can't understand whole sentences of human speech" she would smugly proclaim that animals are very intelligent.

About a year ago, one of my closest friends and I started flirting with the idea of committing to each other and starting a family in the future. We make a good team, we understand and empower each other. He later confessed that he had developed romantic feelings for me. I was getting the feels too, but reluctant to admit it. Shortly after, he started to reconnect with an old flame. He was upfront with me about it and our dynamic returned to being strictly platonic. Their relationship has been getting more and more serious, they're very much in love at this point. I want to be happy for him, but I feel jealous and bitter. I can't even engage in conversation with him. When he messages me it's to talk about world events or music or art, nothing inappropriate, but my responses are so terse and passive aggressive. I've known him for years, I never felt this way when he was in relationships in the past. His friendship is important to me, I want to remain friends for as long as possible, but I don't know how to get over these jealous feelings.

thank you anon, you’re really sweet. i wasn’t expecting any replies. thankfully i’m only home for a few more weeks and i’ve already got my bag packed (i never really unpack bc the environment is so unhealthy tbh). i’m at that weird age where i’m both an adult renting out an apartment in another city, but where i’m still young and unrooted enough that i’m expected to come home for the winter/summer every year (which is always traumatising in some way or another).

thank you for the encouragement wrt speaking to someone, too! it’s a difficult situation because i feel like i’ve both made it up and like i’m being overly dramatic and like nothing bad actually happened/the situation was totally normal, but something in my gut just tells me it wasn’t. i don’t know. it’s scary too because i feel guilty and anxious even talking about it on here anonymously, like the person who did it will find out somehow. i’m going to push to get help in the new year though, so hopefully i can manage to tell someone irl. thank you again, you’re really kind ♥

I can't deal with COVID anymore. This needs to fucking end. My state is currently going through one of the worst outbreaks we've had the entire time. It's been like this for two fucking months and the deaths + cases keep skyrocketing. I'm just baffled. I don't understand what's going on. It's like everyone has just stopped giving a shit. I'm also having an issue with my unemployment payments being stuck on pending with absolutely no end in sight for that either. Can't get any solid explanations as to why, because apparently a lot of people in CA have the same problem. No statement from the EDD about it. Fuck everything.

during one of our breakups, he outed me as an abuser and told everyone who would listen that i abused and controlled him.

i have a friend who was in a really similar relationship to yourself, and she managed to use the pandemic to her advantage and got an apartment behind her boyfriends back - she moved away and ghosted him. i really can’t emphasise the need for a back-up plan he doesn’t know about. you can make new friends, you can move away, and it’s likely a lot of people can already tell he’s not quite right in the head. it’s not worth ruining yourself over such a mentally ill, evil fucking creep. i’m so sorry, he genuinely sounds so so so hellish.

i have an email where he says he will release details about the ‘unclear consent’ situation which we never had and had already falsely confided/implied to someone that i raped him.

because this email doesn’t explicitly threaten to falsely accuse me and instead words it as if i’m some sort of sex criminal, i’m not sure it could be used to show to police, and if i did, he could just tell police i’m a rapist and then i could be on the hook for that.

his mother is a lawyer and i’m afraid that she could not only help him prosecute me for ‘abuse’ which never happened, but she could falsely testify that i raped him seeing as i lived in her house.

he’s insane and i’m afraid of him. i also have very strong feelings for him and don’t want to disconnect completely. i also feel like it’s my fault because i’ve begged him to comeback to me so many times.

Rolling my eyes into the back of my head everytime I see a twittertard talk about "the revolution". You're a "gay non binary trans man" who gets anxiety attacks over the smallest adult tasks and your parents pay for your therapy and T injections after they paid for you go to a liberal college. These people couldn't handle the internet shutting off and there being actual violence in their neighborhoods. Without capitalism and the government, they would never make it. They have no idea how to grow food, store it, maintain a shelter, basic survival skills, etc. What are they going to do when they don't want to do hard labor and have zero skills. Sell their "boy pussy" and expect the communist anarchist men of Twitter to take care of them? They wouldn't have the prescribed drugs they depend on to function. Nobody is going to give a shit about their woke gender attentuon seeking during an actual conflict. They remind me of the one season of the group survivors tv show, two guys survive by themselves while the rest of them sit around complaining and expect the other two to feed them.

I cant stand my mom's attitude towards my dad. Whenever he's verbally abusive to her she just ignores it and waits for him to calm down and goes on like nothing happened. Bitch what the fuck. How can you let ANYONE let alone your husband treat you like that without any consequence. She calls it being the bigger person and "when they go low we go high" blah blah blah but there's a fucking limit, congratulations you avoided conflict but you also let your husband use you as a punching bag and walk all over you for 30 years.

He was just an asshole to me and my mom ignored it instead of taking my side and i know she does it to keep the peace and that it's what she's always done and I shouldn't get mad but it fucking hurts, I want her to get mad at him and defend me. I know it's selfish

She just came to me while I was writing this and she said that I did well to talk back to him and get mad and that she wished she'd done the same years ago and that she loves me and she's sorry I'm upset. I love her too and I appreciate it but none of that changes the way he treats us.

It's what I get for not getting my shit together and moving out in 2020 like I'd promised myself though. Actually it's a good reminder for 2021. I fucking hate this house and I need to leave, again that's selfish but I don't care, I can't live like this

I think I might have BDD. I just found a bunch of pictures of myself from when I was swimming 8 hours a week in high school and I remember how huge I felt then and how I'd buy clothes in a size or two too large because I didn't really understand what I looked like, and I have felt this shitty ever since no matter what weight I was at or how active I was. I've stopped swimming (it gave me massive anxiety attacks lol) and have like 10-20 pounds of extra fat on me and I just feel like a total sack of shit even though most people I know say I look fine.

NTA but time and experience can give you perspective, you might have a better view of yourself this time around.

If you're that distressed about your weight gain you might be surprised how much better you feel losing some of it, I know that I become more and more confident and happy as I lose weight even if I'm not at my goal yet and still fatter than my highschool self.

I'm genuinely afraid that I'm developping selective mutism. I realized that I never ever talk when there is more than 2 persons listenning to me. Sometimes if I feel really anxious I can't even answer or look at my parents in the eyes. I have this deep rooted insecurity about the fact that I have nothing interesting to say, few years ago I would rehearse my sentence to the point that I will come across as robotic, and people would not be interested or simply cut me off. What fucks me up is that every time I really thought that what I had to say was helping the conversation but I realize that I was probably wrong. Now I think that everything I say is worthless and that I'm making people feel akward. I also can't read a room, one day I litteraly walk out of my classroom in front of the whole class because I genuinely though that the teacher had finished talking.
I have recently been accepted in an intership that I really wanted but they have accepted me by just looking at my art and a really messy 5 minutes zoom call when I stuttered like crazy.

The best way to deal with men is by just saying nothing. No arguing, no long texts, no asking what's the issue. If you are in a friends with benefits relationship and the guy is acting like hes better than you, sending you dry texts/leaving you on reas and you feel like you have to beg for his attention, just stop begging him, say nothing and suddenly hes going to be inlove with you. Never react because then they can just paint you as crazy or it boosts their ego thinking youre obsessed with them. A bf keeps doing shit you dont like? Stop nagging and go silent, he will stop. Silence pisses them off more than anything and if they dont really give a shit at least you dont feel like an ass by getting emotional and flustered over someone who doesn't give a shit.

I'm munching on some fruit or nuts between meals because I'm hungry instead of some chips. I still eat a small portion of whatever they cook for dinner like I always have. I'm eating a bite or two of this cake slice over a few days as dessert instead of downing it all in one sitting.

I don't actually care that much about the transgender movement, but it really upsets me that this person was a fucking horrible abusive bully since we were in grade school, and now everyone, including my own family members, are just chalking all of that behavior to effects of ~*~trauma~*~ from being born in the wrong body. Fucking bullshit. This bitch bullied an overweight girl in our sixth grade class to the point of attempting suicide at fucking twelve-years old. When we were in high school, she gleefully told me about how she coerces the women she's seeing into having sex with her by threatening to never talk to them again if they don't comply. When we had sleepovers in elementary and middle school, she would sometimes wake me up in the middle of the night by shoving me out of bed, hitting me, screaming at me, etc. I'm not even someone who necessarily believes that all trans people are terrible and faking it for attention, but this one in particular is so fucking deranged it's terrifying, and I don't believe for a second that taking T has changed any of that.

It's because the never ending glut of violent, debasing pornography has made it common for the average male to be a misogynistic sexual sadist, and women have been groomed by the culture into thinking it's exciting and hot to be erotically brutalized. Any idiot should be able to admit this but mysteriously, it remains to be the most widely denied and obscured social issue in existence.

Porn alone didn't cause this. Misogynistic, sadistic impulses toward women would still have existed within these men whether or not violent porn were widely available. I'd argue what you're discussing is merely an extension of a bigger issue that typically begins in early childhood.

There is a difference between exercising a kink in a controlled, safe environment, and using that kink as an excuse to fuel abusive tendencies toward women. The latter is absolutely a problem, but getting rid of porn entirely, or insisting that we label all "non-vanilla" kinks as bad and/or encouraging violence against women, is not going to solve much.

>beating the shit out of women
What do you mean, specifically? I don't personally consider something like spanking or flogging to be "beating the shit" out of someone, especially if the person is aroused by it and consented to such activity. If you're aroused by, for example, watching a video of a women being within an inch of her life and the context is clearly either non-consensual, or non-sexual, I think that goes beyond the scope of what should be considered appropriate in terms of a sexual kink, and is absolutely a cause for alarm.

>>706787

An anon implied that violent porn is the reason that it is supposedly more common these days for men to be sadistic and misogynist toward women. I disagreed that porn was the sole reason for this, and explained my reasoning. I never even outright disagreed that porn was an issue. I don't think porn consumption, in general is a serious problem, but I am mostly against the use of porn currently because the industry is so poorly regulated. Even with amateur porn, you almost never know for sure whether or not both parties consented to having the video uploaded. If there were some way of knowing for certain that nobody was hurt during the process, I'd say porn is like any other self-indulgent activity: it's fine in moderation.

>>706800
>Its mental illness
Considering most studies don't suggest that BDSM practitioners are any more or less mentally ill than the average person, I'd beg to differ. Why does it turn them on? I don't know. I don't think there's a consensus on why people like to combine pain with pleasure. Some claim that it's connected to some kind of abuse they suffered in early childhood, but other practitioners don't report any sort of abuse.

A couple hours later he bolted out of bed and was standing in the door way for a couple seconds before hitting himself again.

What's with the belief people like this hold, that for all of human history everybody had exactly the same Normal Socially-Approved Sexual Tastes™ and that no one was ever attracted to something seen as Degenerate™ by their culture, until modern internet pornography was invented? And why do they think there wasn't pornography prior to the internet, or that people couldn't have been attracted to certain things that would later depicted in porn, before porn depicting it existed? There was a world before the internet, you know. There are museums dedicated to these kinds of artifacts, and with simple Google searches you can find historical archives of late 1800s BDSM, bondage, and spanking-themed erotic photography that was made solely for consumption.

>>706819
>Men have always been degenerates but in the past it was something to be ashamed of, now it's something to show
Pick one, anon. Either the misogynistic oppression and abuse of women was a prominent problem of the past that current progress towards women's liberation is attempting to change, or the misogynistic oppression and abuse of women was "totally shamed in the past but now it's normal and seen as cool!!". Do you sincerely, legitimately believe men used to treat women better, that men would reprimand other men for being sexist because it was "degenerate", that the routine subjugation of women and their rights wasn't commonplace in our violently patriarchal, puritanical, regressive past, and that when late 1990s internet porn came into existence it suddenly made men sexually aroused at the idea of hating women?

It seems common in discussions like these for there to be a significant amount of people who naively believe the reactionary mentality that there was any point in the past that was better for women than the present, and incorrectly correlating what they perceive the ills of society to be with modern inventions (like correlating pornography or erotic content with the internet and social media) despite those things existing long before the inventions they're attributed to. If you think porn is what causes sexism and want to go back to a false image of a "traditional" past, just become a /pol/cel. If not, learn to think about history and culture in a linear way, instead of interpreting everything that happens or has ever happened as a "specific to exactly my lifespan" thing.(enough)

I know "bc grandchildren" is not a good enough reason to procreate but at the same time I really do want my parents to have that experience. I was recently in tears for a week after my dad made some offhanded comment about a kid in a commercial and missing when his children were that age because I worry something will happen to him before I'm ready to start a family. my parents started late and I can almost see them getting older right in front of me and even though they're not really pressuring me I guess I'm kind of pressuring myself.

at the same time I have such mixed feelings about having children. on one hand I would like to have bio kids if possible but I'm absolutely terrified of the idea of pregnancy. I have body image issues and REALLY bad medical anxiety, and becoming pregnant would mean having to confront all of those things at once. part of me would be secretly relieved if I turned out to be infertile but I know I'd also be devastated if that were truly the case.

I know no one can help me but me and I probably should seek therapy tbh but quelle surprise, I'm scared of doing that too! maybe this will be the year I actually start to take my life seriously though, who knows.

Last night I woke up and my boyfriend had my hand on his dick, next thing I remember I woke up and his hands were down my pants, I said stop and he did. Fell asleep again and I woke up a bunch of times to him humping me.

Woke up this morning and he was like "did I do stuff to you last night when you were asleep." I said yes and he said "sorry" but that was that?

Later he told me he had a sex dream which was why he was doing that.

I'm upset about it- like seriously upset because I've been assaulted before and he knows this, AND we've had conversations about why consent is needed so you can't have sex with someone whilst they sleep and yet now he's all miserable, giving me the silent treatment and acting like I'm the world's biggest bitch because I'm upset about it. He's in such a mood with me and I can't tell if actually I am overreacting because he didn't mean to do it because he was sleeping. Fucks sake.

You can only be diagnosed as having BPD by a qualified professional and often it can be mistaken for depression and bipolar. If you still feel like this you need to see a doctor/therapist/psychiatrist.

If your intention of telling people you feel suicidal is to manipulate them in to staying with you or other things as a means to an end then this is toxic (doesn’t always mean you are evil or bad but need help, and others should not have to be manipulated in to complying with the demands and can walk away) If it’s because you feel like you actually need help and not to gain something from the person you’re telling then that doesn’t make you a bad person, but equally for both you need professional help.

I truly despise people who say they never tip servers and when you point out why that's horrible, they pretend it's some weird self-righteous way of protesting tipping culture on behalf of severs. They say it's a "fuck you" to the owners. How the fuck does that make sense??? If you are eating at the restaurant and not tipping the server, that in no way impacts the owner. It is supporting the owner by giving them business while fucking over the server.

Also, I wish people would stop being dumb enough to blame all individual restaurant owners for tipping culture. There are plenty of owners who have tried to do hourly salary, but they have to raise the food prices so much that it hurts their businesses. Who would have thought that an individual owner doesn't have the power to overturn a century of what American culture dictated? What a shock.

I gotta say I don't really understand tipping culture as a whole. I live in a country where tipping isn't much of a thing. If you eat out at a restaurant and have a good time it's appreciated if you round up your bill by a couple euros, going from 47 to 50 or something, but it's never expected of you. Obviously if I'd visit the US I'd be mindful of tipping, but I've heard so many different stories on how exactly it works.
Do restaurant owners just not pay their workers minimum wage? If so, how is that allowed? If tips are just a bonus on top of a normal wage you'd get elsewhere, I can understand how people think it's entitled to always expect a tip of a certain percentage. I've also heard stories about the tipping thing causing huge inequalities in wages just because some servers work in better timeslots or restaurant sections than others. And that way, servers get all the extra money while kitchen staff get nothing. Is it common for US restaurants to pool all tips and distribute them equally across staff? Because that's how it's mostly done where I live.
Sorry for all the questions, just kind of baffled by this phenomenon.

In Canada, "liquor servers" receive a lower minimum wage than people in other industries. It's usually close to $3 less than the general minimum. The idea is that money received in tips compensates for the lower wage. In these cases, tips are commonly distributed between liquor servers and back of house workers (who are subject to the general minimum). To my knowledge, it's not entirely uncommon that the owner/management will even cut himself a share of the tips. These are just a few reasons why issues around tipping draw strong responses among North Americans. I'm inclined to say that it's an archaic and dysfunctional system.

I never tip in my country unless I’ve had some magical experience thanks to that particular member of staff and in other countries it’s seen as rude to tip. I just think the concept is dumb that you have to pay for the service that is not optional to eat out, why not include it in the price and make it mandatory or pay your workers a living wage US

Thanks for the explanations. How about deliveries or fast food? I've heard that it's common to tip your pizza delivery guy but I don't think I've ever heard about tipping fast food chain employees. Do delivery people also get a lower minimum wage with the expectation of it being topped up with tips?
To me it just seems strange to have these sort of arbitrary standards for what the tip percentage should be. If you eat at an expensive restaurant that doesn't mean the servers have to work harder than at a cheap one. So generally the tip is something you have to keep in mind before ordering something, knowing that the dish is going to be ~20% more expensive in practice? Similar to estimating the added tax before buying something in a store (which is also something I only recently discovered they do in the US)?

No. 707157

>>707132
In America, servers are legally allowed to be paid significantly less than normal minimum wage (like less than half of it) because customers are very much expected to tip. The standard tip is 20% for good service, 15% is considered the minimum you should give if the server is decent. 25% if you make them do a lot more work than normal. The vast majority of people in the USA understand that, like it or not, tipping is a responsibility you sign up for when you eat at a table service restaurant in America. However, there's some degenerates out there that will happily get table service then refuse to tip.

>I've also heard stories about the tipping thing causing huge inequalities in wages just because some servers work in better timeslots or restaurant sections than others.

Yes. The better/more experienced servers tend to get the more busy (IE more lucrative) shifts and sections. In all fairness, these require much harder work, so it makes sense they would get more money.

>And that way, servers get all the extra money while kitchen staff get nothing. Is it common for US restaurants to pool all tips and distribute them equally across staff? Because that's how it's mostly done where I live.

Different restaurants do it differently, but usually cooks don't get any tips because their full wage is paid by the restaurant. At most places I worked servers end up making way more money than cooks, which I don't think is fair, because even though cooking is a lot easier than serving it is a lot more dangerous.

Amazing, I thought I was going to die of some disease (probably covid but hospitals didn't accept any patients when I got sick and ther was still a mask shortage) when I was abroad to look for job opportunities a few months ago because I could barely breathe for a month and I couldn't digest food so I had diarrhea right after I ate something for two months, and it took me one more month to not feel random pain anywhere and not be tired all the time anymore. I had to cancel all of my plans for the next years to come back to my crazy as fuck family's place so I could recover and not die alone at the other side of the planet.

They all knew I was sick but they won't stop minimizing it and saying shit like "lol you looked/sounded dumb on whatsapp haha that was funny" because I had to catch my breath all the time or "lol you're just paranoid, what if it was just stress?" even though I was pale as fuck and weighted a bit less than 40kg when they saw me once I came back to my country. Now they're starting to worry because my big sister celebrated new year's eve with friends, then came at home today to take something, then went to celebrate a friend's birthday just one hour ago. I'm not even going to feel bad for anyone if they get sick and won't help, I just hope I'll stay healthy. Now I'm stuck with them and they think it's normal to constantly insult me but they get upset or threaten me with violence when I tell them to stop shit talking me.

You don't want to romanticize opioids, anon. Learn from Luna Slater. It's a slippery slope.
>if I can't reliably numb myself
The key word here is reliably, because you can't. Think of it like this: unless you can somehow literally stay high 24/7, which is impossible, the shitty feeling is just going to be that much more intense whenever you're not on it. In the end, it's still the same amount of shit, just portioned differently. Equal exchange and all that.
Then soon enough you'll develop a tolerance and your usual dose makes you feel just as shitty as you do now, except if you take nothing you feel twice as shit. So you'll have to up the dose to keep the numbing going. You have to keep periodically upping your dose, and eventually you'll arrive at the highest dose you could physically (or financially) handle. Except after some time that too means you feel just as bad as you did before. At this point you're effectively held hostage by the drug: your only choices are continuing at that highest dose, which doesn't even make you feel better than you do now, or taking less and making life a living hell.
So you keep taking the drugs because it's the only way to keep you from feeling even worse, instead of it making you feel better. Then you laugh at your former self because you understand that you actively turned the feeling you wanted to get away from into the best feeling you're capable of anymore.
>better an addict than dead, right?

I was hoping in November that maybe I could let new years eve be one day where I allowed myself to socialize. I could live on that interaction for a while. But numbers went up already before christmas. I didn't text any of my close friends because it didn't feel right. I didn't get anything from them either. I did see my best friend dance in a circle with more people than she should after just having spent christmas with her family. I see other friends who also seem to be doing social stuff with people their age despite it clearly not complying with the guidelines.. At this point it's like I'm just suffering for no reason. Clearly other people don't care any more. I don't even know how to find my place in this world with a job or whatever because I'm retarded and scared I'll fail at anything I try because I can't even properly take care of myself.. now I feel like I'm slowly but surely losing all my friends on top of all my other shit.

Currently looking into options on how to help an acquaintance that seems to be planning to kill herself (suddenly selling almost all of her stuff, more or less scrubbing the internet clean of her presence, last night she asked for two people to help witnessing her signing a legal document - a requirement when you write a testament), it is a bit iffy whether or not forced commitment is a thing in my country and I'm not sure if these things would be considered proof enough to have her committed in the first place since it is technically just speculation. Honestly, looking into all this is making myself almost feel suicidal.

>inb4 "why don't you talk to her?"


She is a handful to deal with and is prone to aggressive outbursts, I always felt sorry for how she has managed to burn almost all her bridges ever since she broke up with her boyfriend a couple of years ago and has been putting herself in dangerous situations since. I see how her outbursts are based on her being so depressed that she doesn't know how to handle all the emotions she us building up (she is obviously an undiagnosed fellow bpd-fag). However, I'm of the mentality that you have to prioritize your own health if you feel that if a situation is too heavy for you to handle, especially if you suffer from mental illness yourself.
Tl;dr I don't think I can handle her intense mood swings without being very affected myself in a very bad way.

My fucking loser of a brother phoned me on NYE. He was obviously on drugs (which I dont have issues with) and it was all he wanted to talk about. He did MKAT that night, but he also wanted to talk about other times that he did other drugs. Really humble-bragging like, as if I would be impressed. He used to be a neckbeard and would not fit in with the cool kids, so I think he tries to compensate now (he is 29 years old, jobless). It is pathetic. We are both way past the time where drug use is something to brag about. Besides, people that do them dont brag about it to the extent he was doing it. Every time I would try to change the topic, he tried to steer it back. And fuckibg MKAT? He tried to paint it to me like some cool drug that all the kids are doing, but I have experience with it myself (as I am a casual drug user, but he would NEVER hear that from me) so I kept shutting him down.
He also talks the same way about women he fucked (teenagers mostly, because an adult woman would never touch him) but he does not call them women, just "pieces of ass" (I know, cringe). He once expressed to me his desire to fuck my godmother, cause she "still got it".

The real advantage is being introduced to the concepts of saving and making rational decisions, knowing what a functional relationship looks like etc. I had the same advantage, parents were fairly high wage earners who lived below their means and saved a bunch. My primary role models had good traits i could latch onto without having to think too hard about.

But I do take some issue with the amount of 'poor people' who live their lives pay check to pay check blaming the world without trying to improve their situation. Boomers having it easier and you being financially irresponsible are not mutually exclusive things. But i guess i also struggle to empathise with people who have never had to think hard about stretching a dollar.

It just kills me inside when i'm making myself homecooked meals for $1.50 - $4 while people are eating out for minimum $15 and they complain about being poor. Like i earned 40% less then what they earned and I was still doing well on savings. It just seems like every time the discussions of finance comes into orbit the information is either ignored or rejected out of insecurity to protect whatever miniscule amount of pride they have left.

Anyway, i'm pretty much done with people who blame their financial situation on whatever they want. Too much negativity and the friends i've made who are working towards financial security are more interesting and enjoyable to hang out with. Still a couple of people i am hoping will change but i'm over people who are unwilling to improve their situation.

i'm such a moron regarding my hair. my hair is about chin length or a bit longer. at the start of last year i decided i would go from jet black, permanently dyed hair, to ginger. it took 4 bleachings over several days, and then regular dying and lightening over the course of the year to try and get my hair all the same color. there's still about half of my hair left that's been fucked by the previous black and won't dye properly/looks very dull compared to the top half of my hair. i noticed this even more once i decided to dye my hair purpley-red before new years. now, after frying the fuck out of my hair for the past year trying to maintain a lighter color, i'm completely unhappy with both the color AND the length. i'm considering dyeing my hair black and getting keratin hair extensions down to my boobs. please someone tell me what to do i feel like pnp or some other bpd cow that can't make up their mind about their hair but i feel so unattractive like this and i know i would feel better if i went through with my plan but it would also kill me knowing after all that trouble i went through i'd just go back to dark hair AND it would be fried on top of it????

If you base metabolic rate is 2100 (which at 5'4 with moderate activity it likely is near that) and you're consuming a 900 cal deficit at 1200 that would be abt 2lbs weight loss/ week, what are you taking issue with?

I recommend reading this:
https://health.usnews.com/health-news/blogs/eat-run/articles/2016-06-14/who-actually-needs-a-2-000-calorie-diet
The 2,000 calorie thing isn't normal at all. "Moderate activity" only needs 2000 calories to maintain weight if by "moderate" you mean "very active", or if you're talking about a tall man. For other people, 1500-1800 calories is maintenance unless they're fat and trying to maintain it.

There's colour remover products specifically for red and black dye. It won't take you back to your natural colour but a much easier and less harsh process for your hair, then you can use a semi permanent dye over it to achieve a non patchy colour.

> "A normal weight 26-year-old woman who has a sedentary desk job but hits the gym three times a week for cardio or some yoga and is 5 feet 5 inches tall and 135 pounds probably maintains her healthy weight at about 1,800 calories per day."

If you adjust it to exclude the cardio her BMR would likely be 1600 w/o exercise (assuming she does an hr of cardio). At 5'5 and an unspecified normal weight she could burn 200-400 calories with an hr of moderate exercise a day which would make ~1800-2k her BMR. Even completely sedentary 1200 cal would be a deficit and result in weight loss. It's just math you don't have to moralize about it.

No. 707590

>>707575
How is it moralising? Chill out. An “unspecified normal weight” is subjective and amorphous, making the argument kind of pointless here, and 1200 calories would result in slow to moderate weight loss for an average woman, or be complete maintenance if they’re completely sedentary (unless they are tall, like I said before).
I don’t know how my post about tall people being able to eat more caused this mess lol

I hate having to stick up for women composers when programming concerts, but not doing so makes me feel a bit of a gender traitor. Women didn't have the same learning opportunities until at least the 20th century, and including some juvenalia by Fanny Mendelssohn or Clara Schumann next to music by Schubert or Brahms really pisses me off: it never makes the women look good, and so little of it resonates with me. I do try to throw in the better pieces of 20th/21st century music I find by women, but it doesn't really work either, because it's comparing apples and oranges.
Then to top it all off, the creepy faux-feminist scrotes come crawling in and assert that the music of these women is better than the "canon." Bitch some piece about pretty flowers written by Clara aged 15 is hardly comparable to Strauss' four last songs.

I am becoming a hoarder. It started with being disorganized after a move in september and now I really do be living with huge piles of stuff in every corner of my house I wanna die and I can’t seem to figure out how to problem solve and clean it myself. Like I manage, I pick through the piles for what I need but it takes so much longer and I feel like I can’t have anyone over I know because I feel so ashamed so I just sit here in my piles of stuff. I’m in therapy twice a week and we’ve talked circles around this issue and tbh idk if it’s my therapist or me or both but I am not making any progress. Like I’m so close to hiring a professional organizer. But I also know that wouldn’t solve my disorganized habits. And I’m afraid it’s gotten filthy under the piles because I Only clean the center of the room, so that’s embarrassing and again I wanna die and feel trapped

The difference in BMR between a 5'4 woman of average weight and 5'9 woman of average weight is still going to be a few hundred calories, which you can burn off with a moderate amount of exercise every day or avoid by not having a second cookie. How much weight do you need to lose that 1200 calories isn't cutting it for you? Just go for a walk, anon.

I know social media is just for attention seekers but something about making a whole ass tiktok about what colour you dyed your hair just seems particularly narcissistic to me. literally no one cares, dye your hair whatever fucking colour you want, it’s just hair. if you really didn’t care about people’s opinions on it then why draw excessive attention to it? stop pretending you’re confident enough to not care what other people think and go to fucking therapy.

Only wanting abortion legal for instances of rape is the worst take on the issue and shows how little thought or logic people put into their opinions. It makes literally no sense. First of all, how does the context of conception impact how much value the life of the fetus has? Being the product of rape doesn't magically make the fetus any less of a baby. Second, there is no good way to enforce that.

Having this take is basically an admission that you only want abortion to be illegal to punish women for having sex by stripping them of their bodily autonomy. Logically, context of the pregnancy is totally irrelevant to whether or not women should have the right to end it.

So uhhh samefag anon from the vent where i said im insecure about venting because of mocking etc.

Im really trying i think im at my limit. My boyfriend is berating me today, because he wanted to look in my email for some reason and he found tons of spam from wish. That email is pretty old and my wish account was when i was a small kid.

I forgot the password to it so i get daily spammed from that site, and he saw that they spammed "recommended" me sex toys even tho im asexual and really repulsive towards sexual things, i dont even buy sex toys or want them. Hes now saying that i look at dirty stuff and doing this behind his back which i do not and i know im not.

Now hes telling me to explain to him why wish is sending me these spam mails and if i dont he will leave me and its making me confused and also panic alot. i even dropped my energy drink on accident over my whole keyboard and drawing tablet and it literally made me shed tears and make me go into a much much more terrible mood than i was before.

Was called pathetic too by him because i apparently just staged that and told me im over reacting and just acting when in reality when i have anxiety my emotions just tend to go very very wild. He knows that, he also has anxiety so i thought he would show some compassion.

I know hes loving,but something in him changed today im not sure what and its making me scared anons, i really dont wanna lose him, we are 3 years into this relationship, it is going great, we do have some bumpy roads sometimes but they get worked out fairly quickly. today just feels off.

Im also scared that i might hurt myself or others im really thinking about going to my mother and asking her to call the hospital. Im really just feeling like garabge right now.

Yeah, im trying to explain to him why its recommended to me it even says "that could interest you" meaning they are recommending me weird shit that i dont even need or want like a youtube add or video recommendation.

The emails even say "2020" and he asks why they are from 2020 when i said to him that its because i cant access that account so i get spammed obviously, unless i delete my wish account so i wont get spammed.

It irritates me, and frankly it does give me a headache. I just feel so controlled and misunderstood by him and like he doesnt wanna hear me out, says im lying when i actually tell the truth and dont even change up what i say. Threatens to leave me if i dont tell him what he wants to hear, which mind you makes me scared because i got left and ghosted ALOT back then which fucks with my mind and makes me feel like shit.

I have no link to "my" culture whatsoever. I genuinely feel like I'm completely alien from people in my country.
I look at their interests, local politics and celebrities, the fashion and aesthetics, and there is just NO APPEAL WHATSOEVER. Maybe my brain has been rotted from too much isolation (thanks mom & dad) and foreign media all my fucking life. I don't care about anything here, and trying to care feels like giving myself homework. I'm in my own little world. I don't even like going outside. The scenery would be beautiful if there wasn't so much trash littering the place. Fine, it's not a first world country, but why must there be plastic wrappers and other garbage everywhere, marring the beauty of nature? Why are you blasting loud fucking music and some shitty preacher when it's already too hot outside for such bullshit, or when it's a beautiful, peaceful afternoon that's better off quiet? Why are you selling raw dead animals on the street as meat, holding up their corpses? Don't you know that can spread disease? Why are so many things caked in dirt and mud and shit? Can't you keep anything clean? Why doesn't anyone care? Why are there open fucking sewers? Why are some people pissing and shitting in the streets like animals? You are not stupid, you are not subhuman, stop acting like you are.
People constantly think I'm a foreigner just by my appearance, and I've even talked like one ever since I was a child because I learned to speak from my stupid expat dad and foreign media. I was never taught what's meant to be my native tongue, and I genuinely don't have the motivation to learn now. I have been here for years, I have never integrated, and I probably never will.
What if the fucking transracial shit is true? I don't feel like I fit in anywhere. Maybe I should just illegally immigrate, change my appearance and make up a fake backstory for myself. Fucking identity crisis.

Please tell me another anon can relate:

For almost your whole life, no matter who you're with or what you say, people always dislike what you have to say. You know if someone else said it, people wouldn't be so quick to disagree (and often times this has happened to where you said something and people disregarded it but then maybe a day or even an hour later, someone else suggests it and everybody agrees). Not only that but there's a mild hostility towards you for absolutely no real reason, besides maybe you are generally a quiet person.
You can feel a sort of disrespectful aura from other people, even if they're your "best friends".

This is all regardless of whether you are super nice and warm or quiet and contemplative.

No one regards you in any way at all, there can be times when everyone but you gets addressed (yes, even the other quiet people so you know they aren't just targeting quiet folks with unfair treatment.)

Overall, everyone seems to have a negative OR indifferent towards you besides a select few individuals.

This year I'm turning 30. I wanted to make the most of my late 20s but I'm just gonna waste 2 years of my life doing nothing living a dull life. I've lost my libido and sex is something that repulses me quite a lot so I'm not interested in dating or meeting new people. Fuck. I just wanna isolate and wait till this nightmare fuckin ends.

My parents just got ready to go out, but haven't invited me along, only asked me when they were already in winter coats and I didn't want to make them wait. Now I'm beating myself over it and crying, because I did want to go out. Why am I so retarded? I'm always more worried about causing inconvenience than getting what I want or need.

That sucks so much! The worst part is that when you treat them the same, they think you’re the crazy one.
I actually got so mad one day that I started doing exactly what they were doing to my friend, I only said hi to her in front of them, I would ignore whatever they said and ask for my friend for more information on anything she was saying, I would also be like ah, okay so, what were you saying? and stuff.
But what happened?
some bitch had the audacity to ask
>anon, are you mad at me?
Like, what the fuck? I’m doing exactly what they have been doing to my friend and it’s like they didn’t even know?
If it wasn’t for my friend that asked for me to stop, I would have told her that I was being just like how they are around my bff, but I didn’t have the courage.

Stop beating yourself up over this for starters. Sounds like you could use some more self-confidence and being angry at yourself isnt gonna help.
I'm sure your parents love you and they wouldnt ask you if they didnt want to wait. I find it hard too but when someone aks you "do you want this" you have to answer what YOU want an not what you think someone else wants. You dont know if your parents would mind waiting and you dont have to know. I'll tell you waht everyone tells me….stop trying to think what other people think!!! Oh and try to get more self-confidence (if you figure out how, tell me)

And dont be angry at yourself anymore, instead learn from this so that next time, you're doing what you want instead of trying not to be an inconvenience to anyone.

You can do this anon, the worst is over.

Might advice for some other pain killers in the future. I personally love nerufen fastcaps (based on ibuprofen) or perdolan femina (also ibuprofen baded, specially made for monthly cramps as the name suggests)

I have 0 sympathies for my roommate with ADHD. She does nothing to try and make her life easier. She is in her late 20's and has little to no life skills because she grew up insanely rich and coddled. She can barely keep up with a pt retail job because she stays up all night playing Pokemon and "forgets" to set an alarm to wake herself up so she's been fired from similar jobs. She genuinely forgets to pay rent almost every single month and almost always has to pay extra because of how late she submits it which stresses me out so much because I do not want to get evicted. I constantly have to badger her at the end of the month to pay it and even then she comes up with excuses for why her ADHD made her forget to do it. She is also insanely unhygienic and it's awful because I have to share a bathroom with her. She has on more than one occasion left a USED PAD just on the floor next to the trash. She has also once bled all over the bath mat and didn't bother cleaning it up and just left me to find it. I can't fucking wait for my lease to end. I feel bad because I just do not see how she will make it on her own but she needs a fucking wake-up call. I used to live with my junkie parents and I gotta say it was way easier living in a junkie nest with literal needles stuck in weird places than it is living like this.

You will most likely be assessed through teacher assessment/coursework or other means that your college/sixth form decides:
- Get your target grades in any coursework (make it stand out if you can, go the extra mile)
- Again, with homework, try your best
- Show your teachers your best effort in zoom lessons and communication with them. If you don't get the content, make such to ask for help (and prove your dedication through your progress)
- Attend all online lessons and complete all homework/assigments
- Make a realistic timetable for yourself (include breaks and I don't recommend studying late)

There will likely been no formal exams, but content you learn will be helpful in other assessment areas, as well as in Uni.

Lastly, and most importantly, take care of your mental health and try to have a positive outlook. You're doing a-levels in the worst time, you have a goal of going to university and I'm sure you are interested/passionate about a subject, that in itself is something to be proud of. Also, it helps to know lots of kids are in the same boat and no one will look at your co-hort negatively - the provision for learning has not been great. If you feel you haven't done so well so far, there is MONTHS to change that (and lockdown will end way before that so more in-person learning at school). It's awful not feeling in control of our future, but you can't control what happens with covid, but you can control what you do in this (abeit terrible) circumstance. Learn at your own pace, but again, do all homework/assignments and attend all online class.

Sorry for rambling, I believe in you anon!

The moment I get home after going somewhere else for a few days after having a fight with my psycho sister where she started punching and hitting me and then I retaliated, then proceeded to punch me out when I escaped somewhere else two hours later and tried to come back and resolve it, she starts bitching at me again about how I'm a horrible person and how she doesn't want to be around me and that she feels so ~victimized~ that I slapped her in retaliation for her hitting me the first time. Frame yourself as the victim all you want, you power tripping narcissistic psychopath, it isn't going to make you capable of empathy. If you're just going to get into another fight that results in more physical injury, nobody cares anyway. But since she's the "preferred" child and the one who's never gotten proper psych help or meds, as well as younger than me my parents treat this cunt like a saint. One day karma will come for her ass, I know it. There's no repairing this relationship at this rate, she has said and done too much. My father really is insistent "you can forgive her verbally berating you, putting down your degree and profession, comparing you to a serial killer, and calling you a basement dwelling loser!". No faggot, I can't. And moreover my faggot parents not being the ones who'll let me move out when they let this terror move out at 19 is beyond me, but I guess she's good at keeping her abusive rage capped for all but one person. And that person happens to be me. I spent five years of my life living with a different parent and I don't care once I move out if I don't see her for many more beyond five years. She's said and done too much shit for it to be forgivable. I regret not trying to help and be a better sibling earlier on but I'm not gonna be friendly to whatever psychopath in my sisters skin she's becoming because this thing isn't even the sister from my childhood I remember (didn't even like her that much, but she didn't try and give me literal ass whoopings). Fuck my family, they're all awful people and I'm leaving them behind within the next couple years for facilitating this and my mom and dad for additionally abusing me.

Im watching "abducted in plain sight" it's about an guy abducting a little girl of a family he's friends with. This shit is making me so fucking mad.
Firstly, the PARENTS allowed this man who just said he was molested by his aunt at 4 to sleep in their underaged daughter's bed and listen to these weird tape for "treatment" because his therapists recommended it, then both the MOM and DAD admit that they'd were both had sexual contact with the man.

The mom said that he'd given her compliments and ended up kissing him and the dad said that he'd told him he needed "relief" and the dad jerked him off in a car. Both tried to make themselves look like these huge victims of this man in these sexual accounters.
Then he takes their daughter horseback riding, he's gone for DAYS before they call the police. Then they get a call from him eventually saying he's in mexico and he wants to marry their 12 year old daughter, thats the only way he's coming back.

His brother was the one who got the molester caught. The guy had raped and grooomed the daughter into thinking she was an alien and they had a "mission" and if they didn't solve it bad things would happen to her & her family.
She gets saved, but lies for the guy, the doctors say her hymen wasn't broken (she said she was raped in present day) and then she goes back to school.

They tell the parents to have NO contact with the Molesters wife or kids, but what do they do? The
molesters wife comes in on Christmas like, "If you don't get my husband out of jail, then I'm going to tell everyone you fucked my husband"basically.

So the parents decide to get the molester out of jail to protect their "secret", so tell me why the molester calls, the mom speaks with him, he tells her he'd tell her what happened, and she meets with him and THEY HAVE SEX.
She fucks a man who kidnapped her daughter, whose a pedophile who told her he wants to marry her daughter.
I'm not done with the documentary but i'm so fucking disgusted. Her parents have to be the dumbest people alive.

I've seen that documentary. It's one of the most fucked up things I've ever watched.
I honestly think the father purposely handed off his daughter and wife to the man. It was all some fucked up fetish "play" they were doing that resulted in trauma for the child, and they're passing it off as "Oh we were all victims of this great manipulator". No.
Just the way the mother even describes him and moments with him fondly, and slightly sounds jealous of her daughter is horrifying.

I want to fucking die. I was most likely sexually assaulted in a situation where I could barely even walk or talk. If my friends and family knew about it they either wouldn't believe me or would think I'm a hoe. But I don't even remember consenting. I don't remember much at all. I just know if I had been sober I never would've done it. I'm fucking terrified of getting stds or, god forbid, pregnancy.

please please go to a clinic and at least get checked up physically for your peace of mind. and they can connect you with someone to talk to even if you don't want to right now. it's okay not to tell your friends if you feel that they'll just make it worse by not supporting you. you need to do the things that will make you BE safe and FEEL safe, and genuinely anyone who blames you can rot in hell.

i made some off handed joke to my bf about how i should always just have my face hidden (which wasn't really a joke and i have cripplingly low self esteem especially regarding my face - he doesn't know this) and i suppose he jokingly agreed and i agreed back. which is fine. he then said "you know saying stuff like that isn't attractive" and i said good thing i don't say stuff with regard of whether it's attractive or not. then my mood took a massive blow, it did a complete 180 and can't help but think when attractive people say stupid shit like what i said people are so quick to coddle them and tell them how beautiful they are but when ugly people say it, others just get annoyed, don't want to hear it and basically just respond the way he did. i feel so vile, i think my own bf doesn't think i'm attractive at this point. i felt so shit after that. he tried asking me what was wrong but i couldn't tell him and started word vomiting about how i just can't/don't reveal my biggest insecurities as a form of self protection (which is true). i just hate this so much

I’m so sorry, anon. Honestly, most people aren’t able to successfully navigate “poly” relationships because it’s not normal to share your partner and be comfortable seeing them with other people. Did he start the relationship on poly terms or open it, after, on some level, trapping you in another country? Relationships where you feel trapped and unhappy will wear you down, it’s not worth staying. Have you spoken to him about how you feel?

On a similar note, the fetishization of east Asian dick among weaboos/koreaboos is ridiculous. They're not special. They're not going to treat you better.

it was frankly my idea first since we were a LDR for so long and we've been together since we were teenagers without like any physical contact for years at a time but when i MOVED here i told him i wanted to be monogamous (we never even acted poly anyway, at most i flirted with guys i knew and that was it and he didn't do anything with anyone else while we were apart as far as i know) and he agreed to that

until he fell for a troon we both know l m a o

i know part of it is my fault for getting the idea out there to begin with and i haven't brought it up since, since we were talking about being a group for a while but now its like i'm the only one who's not okay with it and its just a lot, sorry for the sperg lmfao

but i should bring it up again since its been such a long relationship and mostly quite good, i don't want to throw the baby out with the bath water, you know? its just frustrating because i know both of them are gonna act like me changing my mind before we get too far into this is ruining their lives but like, i didn't really agree to this!! i'm your wife, like pay attention to me!!

My condolences, man. That’s a seriously shitty situation but the fact he’s going to act like your discomfort with him seeing. a tranny is “ruining” his life- that’s a serious red flag! You’re his wife! You should be at the top of his priority list. Did he fall for the troon while you agreed to be monogamous? That’s at least emotionally cheating in some way. Do you think his need for other partners will subside? Personally, I think you need to close the relationship if you don’t like him seeing anyone else, or just try to accept it and maybe see other people to dull the pain? I’m sorry for the shit response, I am an extremely jealous person and poly shit would kill me so I completely empathise with you.

Could you say that you’re not okay with it because of the emotional cheating? I mean if you were in a monogamous relationship at that point and not poly he really can’t pull that card on you. That sort of mentality is the reason why men got away with raping their wives for so long - consenting to something once does not mean you have to consent forever.

To be honest I would be so turned off by all of this I’d leave. Sounds like he might be gaslighting and/or guilt tripping you, which is gross. Tell him you’ve changed your mind and if he doesn’t choose you, his wife, then leave because he doesn’t deserve you. Poly relationships only work if everyone involved is consenting and happy. You’re not, and it’s not your job to put up and shut up for a man and some troon.

Also the fact you’re questioning if you’re a lesbian should make you consider leaving too. If you’re a lesbian, you’re not attracted to men, so you shouldn’t be with a man.

The quote “Many women, I think, resist feminism because it is an agony to be fully conscious of the brutal misogyny which permeates culture, society, and all personal relationships.” from Andrea Dworkin is 100% true. Back when I was still a young handmaiden this was exactly the reason why I had such a hard time accepting the accusations feminism geared towards men, as it would inherently mean that I had to accept the fact that women are in fact oppressed and that we should demand better. It's a scary thought to wake up and see the sexism all around us, live being aware of it and trying to fix it while you could just stay bluepilled and nonchalantly claim that you don't need feminism because you get to vote and you don't want to associate with that blue haired they/them enbian clown you saw interviewed about the principles.

Submit interest leads through the dealerships website using my email. The dealerships email back pretty much immediately. I then asked them to run numbers on the precise model I wanted (supplying my income and credit score). They sent me their offers and I compared them. Then I used two competing offers to get an even better deal.

I made sure to get the rep to agree to the terms in writing. Got my insurance, showed up to the dealership to sign papers, and drove away in 45 mins.

This isn't really a vent, but I'm not sure where else to write this. I think I just realized that I've had a really bad habit of overcommitting to certain friendships and then becoming exhausted once I have to deal with all of the emotional labor. The reason it took me this long to understand is because the exhaustion comes in years later once the initial feeling wears off of me being excited that someone is so close to me and understands me so well. I guess in my childhood/as a teenager I was always so lonely and wished for one of those inseparable friendships where we understood everything about each other- and I was a weird kid so obviously it was hard for me to find people who liked me as I was. Now that I've had a few friendships where people have shared everything with me, I realize I can't handle the constant negativity that comes with it. I'm pretty sure it's just a boundary issue, but I also can't help but feel guilty because maybe I'm just selfish and not a very emotionally tolerant person.

In the past I think I was so afraid of being alone that I really wanted to have one or two people who I knew would always be there for me no matter what, but now that I'm completely content with being alone my tolerance for that level of emotional closeness is really low. I can't help but question whether I'm actually able to form a close relationship with someone that doesn't end up burning me out. I guess I still want to have close friendships, but how do I do it while still having healthy boundaries so I don't end up repeating the same mistake? Is this just me being selfish and unrealistic because I want the security of emotional closeness in a relationship/friendship without the emotional labor?

I can sort of relate, but for me it's also that I lose interest in doing emotional labor once I get to know the person better. The more I know someone, the more I judge them, and at some point I think they're worth it. I only like the early "nice to meet u" phase.

anons I’ve been severely depressed since last March when I got in a car accident and then almost immediately laid off. I finally started working out again, calorie counting, and eating less garbage, AND I took care of stuff I’ve been putting off for a literal year.

Glad you can kind of relate. I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting as to why I feel this way because as I said in my original post I have been feeling guilty about this and know it’s my issue. I’ve been trying to assess more as to what I expect from friendships and what I can reasonably give so I can be better at drawing healthy boundaries. I think doing constant emotional labor for somebody is a lot easier said than done so its important to know your limits so that you don’t overextend yourself and then end up resenting someone. That’s just what I’ve been thinking!

It really feels like nothing is ever going to get better. I do all the steps I am supposed to do but I'm only ever doing them out of guilt and shame of disappointing people. I've tried to "fake it til you make it" but I never "make it" and I end up more stressed and self-destructive than ever. At my most successful I was truly unhappy and taking pills every night but everyone was proud of me at least. I really wish I could disappear and not affect anyone ever again.

I wish my mom had a better life. Shitty abusive and neglectful parents, abusive first husband and cheating/lying second husband.
Three shitty children (I'm included). No friends. Shitty siblings that lie and borrow money or gossip behind her back. I love her so much but I want to cry. She works so hard, 40 or more hours a week and has no time for herself, not even time to date. And any men in her pool would be absolute pieces of shit.

Wish I won the lottery and could give her half of it.

I hate being pregnant during a pandemic.

The fact that you even have that sentiment says that you aren’t just a “shitty child.” I obviously don’t know your relationship with her, but maybe you could tell her more or less what you posted, or at least that you feel like she deserves more in life?

Adding to the other anons, small acts of kindness would mean a lot to her and help her feel appreciated. Depends on your financial situation and if you live with her, but it doesn’t have to be much - help out (more) around the house, make her a coffee, buy her favorite candy, message her to ask about her day. If you’re creative, make something for her. Listen to her. It sounds like she’s surrounded by so much negativity that a little positivity would really help.

I’m a shitty child, and just because one acknowledges it, doesn’t mean that they’re not. OP’s mom is better than mine and I’m probably a better child than her but it doesn’t say a lot. Shit is still shit and while things can be fixed, so long it’s just talks and not deeds everything is futile.

How do i get over the fact that I dated a creep and gave my firsts to a creep? I don't know if anyone is actually going to read all of this, but i have no one else to talk to and i would like to hear someone's else's opinion about all of this. I don't want to get into my life story but from 10 to 12 and 14 to 17 I was a complete shut in so I lost life experience and I also never had a boyfriend. When I was 17 i pushed myself to change and get better. I had friends, i went back to school and I used to go to parties and get drunk sometimes too. When I had just turned 18 (he was 23 for context) all my friends already had their first kiss and lost their virginity so I feel like peer pressure was also part of me wanting a boyfriend and giving my first kiss. I met him at a beach party and our first encounter (after i had already seen him in two other parties and had a little crush because he was funny) was when I entered a tent to sleep and he was there as well, I was drunk so I started to drunk talk about music with him, he told me I was beautiful, he had never kissed a girl and wanted to kiss me and I was like nope. I guess that should have been a red flag since he knew I was drunk but he still asked?(we didn't kiss). After that he contacted me and we started to talk, we ended up going out and so he became my boyfriend. The thing is the first time I gave him a handjob was when I was drunk with friends at a festival. We distanced ourselves to a country side path and we started to kiss and he took his dick out, i was kind of shook but i guess I went with it but he started to get very pushy saying let's fuck over and over again but still i didn't want to, and after maybe two hours we went back. The next day he apologized saying i was drunk and he shouldn't have done that (so he knew he had done something wrong) and he was saying he couldn't control himself, beating himself up but i was too shy to say anything so I just told him it was fine. He was obsessed with his first love (they never dated, he liked her and she rejected him) and always talked about her saying i looked like her. He even used to go to her instagram with me etc. He was always pushing me to lose his verginity, saying it would have made us closer and bullshit like that, even back then I was thinking like, bro wtf are you doing…? Do you think I don't see what you're doing? There have been other three instances where he kind of pressured me to give him a blowjob when we were outside and I'm so ashamed of it I think it's gross and I want to forget. He also wanted to fuck outside and used to say bullshit like "everyone does it, everyone has places because ofc they can't do it at home c'mon" i was still thinking like wtf are you doing? It's making me mad thinking about it lmao, like he thought I was stupid or something (i guess I was, ugh). I went to his house two times, one time we went out for a bit(we lived in two different but close towns) his friends saw me and started screaming "woo hisname today fucks! woo" and he just laughed looking at them and told me "leave them be". One time we went to another party with my friends and I got very drunk. He didn't notice me the whole party, he was with his friends and I was with mine, then when I was very drunk we were together, we started to make out and i don't remember much of it until he put his hand down there, he was shit lmao, he didn't know shit but the thing is, for the two times i went to his house, he knew i was against him touching me there. I really hated the thought of someone doing that (still do). He also pressured me those times at his house saying "c'mon c'mon" but still i didn't want to. He stopped as soon as he realized how drunk i was but still it makes me angry and sick thinking about it. He was addicted to porn but he was aware and wanted to stop, he had talked to me about but I didn't know what that meant back then, i never watched porn so I was very clueless about anything regarding that (now I know more and i hate pornsick men ugh).
He told me another girl friend confessed to him but he chose me because I was prettier. This isn't to be mean but he wasn't attractive and he was short (I'm 5'1 he was 5'2) i didn't care back then(still don't to an extent) i always thought everyone is beautiful in some way but now I realize it wasn't the same to him or most men. I was pretty to him.
Around two years ago everything was too much and I started to become shut in again, i tried to shut it down at first, but eventually I gave into neetdom again. Since I couldn't go outside and i wanted to not talk to anyone and be left alone, i tried to break up with him 3 times. 1st time he got angry, 2nd he was no no no I'll wait for you let's just keep talking, 3rd time he completely ignored it. He was always saying bullshit like I'll wait for you forever but I just wanted him to leave me alone kek. I didn't know how to get rid of him, I've always been shy and a pushover(i don't think I am anymore, i got better) so I just accepted i had to talk to him. After a few months he told me he got drunk and made out with a friend of mine lmao. He said they were both very sorry kek i was relieved i could finally stop talking to him, i didn't want to fight so I just told him it was fine, we were already broken up anyway since I couldn't go outside, deleted everything and blocked him. (This isnt actually true, i don't really care anymore but it frustrated me a little bit that he was saying dumb lame bullshit like I'll wait for you forever when i wanted him to leave me alone and then at the first chance he got he made out with someone, it just showed how much of a coomer he is and makes me even more ashamed of dating him).
After two months, i created a profile in a forum, he knew the nickname i used for everything (very dumb of me using the same nickname for everything, i don't do this anymore but I'm very reserved, i have nothing to hide and i don't talk to anyone so I never thought someone would do something like this) and he found me right away. It was creepy. He wrote me he was suicidal and he needed to talk to me urgently. I unblocked him and he basically said he actually didn't have anything to say and he just wanted to talk to me, so i answered to his messages a couple of times but then i left him on seen. I didn't have the heart to block him again, but he kept contacting me so after two times i blocked him again. This was a bit less than year ago, around that time my phone also broke, since i didn't have any use for it I only bought one again 5-6 months ago. I didn't mention this earlier but I also had sent him 2-3 nudes when we were together. I don't want to blame everything on him pressuring me because it's not like that, i don't want what I wrote to be based on one side, but there was definitely him saying "c'mon c'mon" even here. This made me anxious, since i didn't know if he deleted them and i was scared he could have posted them somewhere. 4 months ago he sent me a message on my phone saying "it didn't make sense blocking me".
After thinking about it for a while, i decided to contact him to ask about the pictures. He said he had deleted them, to not worry, and to write to him sometimes. I told him no. Since then he contacted me other 3 times, so today I decided to block him again. So yeah this is basically it, I don't understand why he can't leave me alone, it's been two years. How do I get over being ashamed of having dated him and everything that came with it? I wish I could forget. I would like some other anons opinions about all of this. Sorry about how shitty this is written.

I've had pretty life interrupting levels of mental health issues going back to my early teens. I don't have anything where I tend to lash out or act bpd or anything like that. I don't endlessly vent or demand alot. It's my thing to manage. I've still lost both of my long term relationships to my depression though. Fair enough, anything that makes a person want to leave is a good enough reason imo. I accept that.

But when I see examples of the most unwell people in relationships that outlast mine I can't help but feel like shit. Like I must just have no redeeming qualities at all. I see people who lash out, vent constantly and bring a huge amount of daily emotional baggage and drama can still keep a partner. My low moods that I mostly keep to myself were relationship ending twice over. I hate to compare like that here I am.

That’s understandable anon, seeing people maintaining longer relationships than you despite acting worse would make anyone question their worth. The thing is though, that’s not a good thing at all for them or their relationship. It may outlast yours but so what? Unhealthy relationships can drag on for decades if allowed to. They’re not desirable, and are rarely completely fixable. It’s a good sign that your chosen partners respected themselves enough to spare the heartbreak.

The thing I find really frustrating is comparing my relationships to people that act like you described, who don’t have a diagnosis and aren’t seeking one. It feels like they’re given a free pass to act completely insane because they’re not actually insane (on paper), whereas I’m under scrutiny even for normal behaviour because I’m not allowed to act insane even though I am insane? I don’t know, those are some mental gymnastics and it makes me feel bad. So I get how you feel. The only way forward is recovery and understanding that toxic relationships are nothing to be jealous about.
