I'm afraid of my little sister trooning out. She's 13 and has pronouns in her ig bio (she/her for now but I've seen that shit escalate to they/them more times than I can count) and her ig profile picture is one of those pride flag picrew image-maker thingies with an asexual pride flag and an aromantic pride flag. It may sound like I'm making a big deal out of nothing, I mean I thought I was asexual when I was 13 myself but the difference is the whole 'it's hip to be a tranny' thing didn't exist back then like it does now. She also tries to appear as androgynous as possible by dressing a certain way and spews 'progressive' talking points like "if a man says he's a woman, then he is a woman" that type of shit. Now, we come from a pretty conservative family and live in a 3rd world shithole where it's pretty hard to be a woman and not hate yourself. However I don't want her to become a tranny just because of the shitty environment we live in. I want to say something to her but we're not really that close and don't have much in common (aside from watching anime together from time to time) I want to help her but I don't want to seem like a busy body either. What do?

Anonymous 45072

god there's this girl in my course who won't shut up about being asexual in my course and keeps bringing up her ldr bf and how he's the only person she's ever liked. which would be fine but she has to go invite him to our course-exclusive groupchats and have him involved in near every game we play together, it's really obnoxious and cringe

I've been out of a job for a few months and the job market is terrible.

I only have 1 year of experience, but a good degree at a prestigious school, and there are absolutely no junior openings. It's all internships or jobs requiring at least 3 years of experience.

I'm still glad I left my old job to get away from the covid petri dish of a city I used to live in, but I didn't expect I would have this much trouble even finding a job I'd want to apply to.
This has made me feel so worthless and useless. At the current pace I might just take it easy for a few years and then commit sudoku when the shame becomes too overwhelming.

Boyfriend just sucks at tact. Literally wept all weekend because I wouldn't see him for two weeks and he just informed me of how he's doing art for a female friend of his (they've been friends a long time) who used to want to date him and is now single. Fuck you, I'm good. I just thought maybe I'd have a chance of getting over how weepy I've been, but I guess not. It's a mistake to say anything to him.

Anonymous 45097

Yeah, that doesn't work in my country, you pretty much need to be in education to get an internship.

Anonymous 45098

He doesn't mean to hurt me. This friend just broke up with her boyfriend because her boyfriend was teetering on being physically abusive. He did not want to date her when she wanted him years and years ago. He has created art for her before. It just rubs me the wrong way when I've voiced how lonely and alone I've been and then it's like he does that for someone else when he knows I've been missing him and would like more communication.

It's selfish, but don't want to hear about his friend. I'm sure they're in much more contact since her boyfriend left her, though.

It's the same case both ways. Tell him that, tell him how would he feel if you were surrounded by male friends he doesn't know about… It would be bad right? Obviously yes. It would raise suspicion. No matter who you are.

I started renting with a guy who owns his own home just before the pandemic hit. When government funding couldn't pay for everything, I came to him in desperation and he was 100% fine with just waiving utilities. Then my savings ran out and he just flat out ignored rent in favour of me taking over some domestic duties. Now I feel like I'm a 40's housewife, completely dependent on him. I'm terrified what will happen when the pandemic is over and I still don't have a job.

I posted this in an older vent thread but got no helpful replies so am asking again.

I am a HS senior and I have been strongly considering taking a year off before uni, mostly so I can work on my mental health issues that caused me to be a friendless loner in HS, but I am also really scared I will just waste a year doing nothing, even worse, a year with barely any social contact (just in the workplace) could rot my brain even more and I will be truly too far gone once I enter uni.
How do you even find friends as an adult, assuming your co-workers will most likely not be withing your age range? Should I bite the bullet and go to uni or take the year off? I feel like no matter what I choose it will be the wrong choice :/

Anonymous 45177


I wouldn’t take a year off unless you have a real solid plan for how you’re going to spend the time because a lot of people who do that and don’t have a plan just end up never going to college. Have you considered studying abroad if you have the money? For some programs you’ll be in close proximity to the same group of people for the whole semester so it can be a good way to make friends and practice social skills.

If you don't have money and still want to travel, you can look into any kind of English teaching program. Then you would be able to take a year off school, earn some money, and experience a new country. I know ESL abroad teachers are negatively stereotyped because of neckbeards and creepers that apply to those programs but still something to consider.

There are many reasons to take a year off from college, being friendless is not one of them. If you're the type that's actually mentally equipped to go to college in the first place, it is a far better place for making friends and socializing than High School. If you have any other reasons to take a year off, do it, but social problems got exponentially worse in that case.

I would like to have a female friend to talk about how sad I feel about my body and how my bf feels about it. Basically I've been trying to lose weight for a few months now (and I've lost 20 pounds so far) but he's pushing me to do it faster and from time to time he just throws jokes about my body and sometimes say hurtful stuff like he's ashamed of being seen with me. I really love him but I feel delusional because even though he says stuff like that I actively ignore how he feels about my body. We also started to live together a few weeks ago and I feel watched all the time, specially when I take something to eat.
Can someone just throw her discord and hear me? I promise to be a good hearer too.

Not sure why you are bringing studying abroad, I guess I would not be against it but it is not something I have been strongly considering. I do not really wanna take a year off to travel the world (even though that is a part of it), I mostly wanna get together mentally.

I mean, I am not really that "depressed", I just have severe CPTSD and OCD which make actually maintaining friendships a nightmare. Ideally I would wanna take a year off to sort of get some professional help for them cause I wasn't allowed before and enter uni a less broken person, but yeah as I said before, a year of loneliness could fuck me up even more.

I was dating a guy for 5.5 years and then he confessed that he had cheated on me over a year ago (he fucked 1 woman multiple times). I broke up with him, but I'm having an insainely hard time not getting back together. He was super sweet and supportive.

We were ldr for ~3yrs leading up to the cuckening, then he moved in with me almost immediately after (ass). The past year has been pretty great. idk. I want to date him again but idk if I can/should accept this. I hate him for ruining everything.

I want to defend or explain, but I know you're right. He just essentially explained that he realized it was wrong and living with me for the past year he realized how much he loved me and wanted things to be right between us so he told me.

You have 2 options here essentially, but let me be clear, this was basically rape, I can tell you don't want to throw him to the tender mercies of the courts, but no matter what option you choose you need to let him know that you feel like he raped you when he did this to you.

Bite the bullet and leave him if he's consistently like this when it comes to him doing things to you, it's a matter of respect and dignity at that point.
Or, if you REALLY want to stay with him, tell him that what happened was completely unnacceptable, that if he really does care about what you want that he shouldn't try to force you to do it before you're ready. Depending on how he responds, stay with or leave him.

Get to a clinic before you do any of this.

Pretending like you know it all and having a bad personality is what kept you out of that dream job and college program, not because you were discriminated against.

I hit it off with a girl well today but I still feel so empty. Everyone says they care about me yet whenever I try to talk about my feelings I'm immediately shut down and told I'm overreacting. It feels so invalidating, I've started to become used to not validating my own emotions so instead of being sad I just get very angry. This is the best I've been doing and everyone around me keeps trying to fuck it up once again. Whenever I try to communicate no one ever fucking listens. It's hurtful. It really hurts.

I want a relationship but at the same time I enjoy being single and not being tied down. I've been on a good number of dates but I haven't really felt much from any of them, with both of my last relationships I was friends with them both for over a year before I started having feelings for them and dating them but I doubt that most people would be willing to wait

I was recently told by a girl I was seeing that she started falling for someone else and that they agreed to be exclusive. I'm fine with this as I'm seeing other people too and I'm glad she was honest and direct with me as well as I did actually like her. The one thing that bothers me is the gender of the person she got with. I really hope they're a guy because you can't really compare a man to a woman in terms of what they can offer you and I obviously can't give this girl babies or a relationship that's near universally accepted. But if they're another girl then that actually would hurt a lot more in a petty "what does she have that I don't have" kinda way. I'm obviously not gonna ask her because that makes me look childish but I did bring up this way of thinking to her before and she reffered to this person with gender neutral pronouns so I'm worried that they're a woman as well

I feel like a total failure.
I originally at the start of the semester had 7 classes. Well i've dropped out of 3 of them because I couldn't handle it. I just now failed an exam for one of the classes that i'm in and didn't turn in an essay so i've basically failed that class too. Now I only have a chance to finish 3 of my classes. Maybe it's just because it's all online cause of corona but maybe it's just me being a silly goose and keeping up with the same bullshit that i've kept up with for 3 years.

Family dog is about to be put down and I can't handle it. She's outwardly so happy and energetic, it just feels like we're killing her. She has a tumor on her belly that broke open a couple weeks ago and if my mom had acted sooner we could have operated it but she just kept talking about "making a decision".

Mom wants to act like nothing is happening, told me "not to think about it" and my family has a weird thing about crying around each other (even at dads funeral I couldn't handle crying in front of them). But I keep breaking down sobbing and I'm worried I'm wasting my last few hours with her by not doing enough. Especially since I can't be around my mom rn and the dog wants to be around her. I had the dog on my lap during dinner and mom yelled at me for letting her up but jesus christ she's going to live four more hours who cares about etiquette.

Also octobers are cursed, 2016 my other dog died, 2017 grandpa and 2018 my dad. I'm legit getting anxiety each time october rolls around.

I let her into my room to sleep in my bed one last time - she actually puked shortly after this picture was taken which I found pretty funny. When she was younger she'd puke in my bed and I'd have to wake mom up to help me change the sheets in the middle of the night. It was such an inconvenience and yet I'll miss it in a way.


It was a lot easier with my other dog, she seemed "ready" when we put her down in front 2016. But with this one she's still so lively and it feels more like killing her than letting her go. I suppose she has worsened quickly these past week and my friend said small dogs never show getting worse until a day or two before.

Oh anon I'm so sorry. If you have more pics or just memories of your pup pls feel free to share them. And if you feel like you can't cry in front of your family at least you can cry with us here, losing a dog is heartbreaking even if we're always aware it must happen one day.

My childhood dog also had to be put down pretty suddenly, even if she was 16 already. Her motor control worsened over just two days because of a tumour, on the second morning she couldn't use her hind legs so she crawled to the food bowl like nbd and really tried to go on a walk. I also found it so sad that her personality was still the same, almost like she just had some temporary ailment and would be back on her feet soon, but it was comforting that she never had to feel disoriented or afraid and was never in much pain because we humans can tell when it's best to let go.

I still miss her sometimes. Pic rel is the closest I could find on google, I don't have digital pictures of her unfortunately.

I'm in University for Psychology, taking online courses so I'm stuck at home with my parents every day.

I have no friends, no skills or talent, no personality, horrible self-esteem, and I get anxious anytime I interact with strangers, even online. My social skills are practically nonexistent. I literally feel like I was built to self-destruct.

I spend every day on imageboards and YouTube trying to avoid this bleak reality, but I'm seriously hitting my limit on avoidance and daydreaming. I want to end my stupid pointless life. I don't want to be alive.

I love my boyfriend, but I don't know if I can stay with him because I'm sick of porn usage, period. I want sex as much if not more than him. What's the reason besides wanting to see more naked women than me? What more does he get out of it? It's hard because I have felt for a while he's the one person I love (I've been in relationships before but have never been in love, whereas I have with him). However, I think it's true there is more to a relationship than purely love. Sex is a huge part of my relationship and it's sickening to me he still has to supplement with it. Is it really that prudish of me to be over him watching it, let alone consider breaking up because I don't think I can long term feel okay with that?

Anonymous 45643

I also don't know what his porn usage is like, in truth. I'm guessing it's at least 1-2x a day when I'm gone, but it's possible he uses it when I'm at his house which is around 5 days a week. He saves photos of instagram models ocassionally (it pales in comparison to the everything else he saves on instagram). So, I don't think he's exceedingly bad, at least, not bad enough to where it clearly interferes with our sex life, though I still don't prefer it. However, I don't know for a fact how deep he is into it. I've always maintained an attitude of not trusting until I'm given reason to trust in these areas due to past experience and he acts as if that is unfair of me.

He also acts afraid of a slippery slope situation - he'll stop doing this, what next? I've assured him that's not the case, but that doesn't assuage him.

Thanks friend. We put her down this morning and it was rough. When the vet gave her the first shot she struggled so much, wandering around the table and whimpering as she fell over. I hugged her but it didn't seem to help much. I wish I would've been allowed to hold her, do it in a calmer environment.

Mom was weird about it, wanting to put on a muzzle instead of just letting me hold her so she doesn’t bite (thank god I could convince her of that at least) and not touching or being near her while she was struggling. Eventually though Lily just fell asleep with her head on my hand.

I thought it'd be easier once it's done but it's not. I keep thinking I hear her wander around, I instinctively go to her bed to pet her, I look down while cooking thinking she'll be there hoping for something to fall down.

Here's a picture of her in the laundry basket - she always looked for our clothes when we weren't around. Mom constantly complained that she'd pull her pajamas onto the floor to sleep on them.

There's a reason I have greater respect for internet animators than I do for pretty much any other kind of animator:

I've been there and have failed to do more than one flash animation I'm not ashamed of. You could even say I at some point thought comics were easier (even though I've been through enough to realise they're just as hard if not borderline impossible to pull off once you graduate middle/secondary school). Yes, this is a case of relating with them better, but it's also because these are people of passion. The intimacy of what they are willing to go through is there in their works. Even when they DO give up they still keep doing it regardless of what people may think, because public opinion is one of the things they sacrifice to maintain that vision and spirit they care about regardless of what.

Forgive my out-of-the-blue example but it's somewhat akin to when Rock Lee and Gaara in Naruto fought once. Yet even after he was defeated, and as far as unconscious, Rock Lee still got up because he had that apparent spirit.

Sure it's possible to see that in animation shown on other media, it's just harder to believe that one single person worked on them.

FFS Edd Gould was basically the Freddie Mercury of internet cartoons if you knew his story while Jarrad Wright didn't even need Flash animation to make a series that would end up with a feature length film (three if 13 to 55 minutes count), not that it didn't work out just as well with Dick Figures.

I'm not saying people who work on any other licensed/contracted animation don't work hard because they do.

I just am only familiar in a field where I would only know how to play catch when a professional champion league isn't present.

I just want my boyfriend to break up with me. I've been not super interactive with him and haven't seen him in months even though I could've. He's passive aggressive, he claims to be demisexual and a virgin before he met me but I doubt both given what my friends told me they found out, he tries to make me jealous and has openly hit on uninterested women but I just never cared really. I haven't had sex in about 6 months now, and it sucks but I hate him too much to even allow him to do it again while he gets upset about how bored and uninterested I look during it, even though I told him to get it over with.

I hate that I do this, but I fear the fact his passive aggressiveness is also actual aggressive behavior. He's shaken me sometimes when he didn't need to over small verbal fights, I have a recording of him yelling at me in a car on the way back from a date for 15 minutes and then apologizing (this is very common), he's yelled at me a few times and the thing is… I think he thinks I'm at fault for all of his behavior. I never had this happen in a relationship before, and it's really just him and he'll blame it on his CPTSD. And there's been a few fights where he gets loud and in your face, and then he apologizes profusely and cries after. He's talked about marriage during this time, and I hate it because it's just a way to build up false hope in me. He says he loves me and I believe it, but it's not a love I want where I'm worried if he'll cheat on me to make me feel bad, ignore me to do the same, badmouth about me to his friends and then praise me in the same vein, I just want to be treated like a human again, not a black and white devil and goddess. I've never been in an abusive relationship before. This is honestly the worst one I've ever been in.

He also did this odd thing too, he hid my social security card from me for months. I stopped living with him before quarantine started (thank god), and I was looking for it for so long and couldn't find it. He knew I was looking for it too. Now that I haven't visited or seen him in ever it's magically… above his fridge. It might be me overthinking things but I never would put it there. I know he put it there but fucking why? I'm going to ask him to just drop it off in his mailbox so I can pick it up so I don't have to interact with this tiny angry man in person. But god I hate that he knows it now he's just so fucking obsessive and I just don't feel safe enough to end this since he's just so malicious and I know he's just going to yell at me and then make it out like I was the bad one in everything when I've been grey-rocking this whole trip to just end it. He didn't message me at all today, I hope anons he finally ends things so I can move on with life.

I know if I tried there'd be another tantrum, it's rage and then intense sorrow. I don't know if it's his CPTSD or something else, I think the latter but he has no diagnosis. I'm more scared of the backlash of doing so.
I think he's planning on ending things officially soon since my grey rocking has been working.
I feel given everything there's a guarantee there'll be a verbal altercation at least, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did get physical. He's barred me from exiting a few times when he was having flashbacks related to his PTSD which was unpleasant but it's hard for me to blame him for that given his condition. I've broken up with people before and been broken up with, I'm not inherently conflict avoidant. I feel this is a very special case though.
I would not hear the end about it if I did it that way since we've been together for a while. I'm worried he might drive over to get me to do it if I did it that way. I think just waiting it out and keeping contact minimum until he loses 100% interest is the best way.

If you have a creed then that's fine, but you should focus on the more positive aspects of it in a piece of entertainment rather than channeling your anger in such a contemptuous manner when writing characters. A ton of people went through a hell similar to that in those times, and if you assume everyone already has their sympathy engrained for you enough to leave it unearned when developing your characters in said piece of entertainment then I may as well watch stuff like the following trailer.

what are your parents on? it's not even hard to become a psychologist. people with the shittiest grades become them easily. don't listen to them. they're not only assholes, but they're so wrong. i know it's difficult to remain strong in the face of such pointless nastiness and denigration, but i promise you are capable of it and that you still have the opportunity to do become one. maybe try to distance yourself from the people who seek to use you. you don't have to be rude, but just… don't answer, or answer with short messages that help to reinforce your emotional and mental boundaries and show that you are a priority and you won't be tolerating being walked all over any longer, that it's not all about them.

If it makes you feel better, my favorite artists aren't "good",they draw in a more cartoonish style and anatomy, lights and shadows and colors aren't perfect or even good sometimes, but i still like their art a lot and get happy when they post. So it may sound cliche but even your doodles that YOU think are ugly or not on a good enough level could attract fans and just make you happy to be expressing yourself and drawing.

How hurtful is the silent treatment to you guys, from 1-10? How cruel is it to give someone the silent treatment, then use their reaction to being rejected and ignored when they are trying to facilitate closeness and care, against them? As if their reaction to being purposely shut out for days to weeks justifies more ostracization. What do you think about people who act like the silent treatment is no big deal?

Anonymous 45871

I dont think its too hurtful for me, but Im extremely stubborn so if someone doea that to me Ill just double down on it and wouldnt sat anything to them till they made the first move.

How bad it is depends on the actual scenario, whos doing it and why and for how long, but its childish, for sure. Unless you actually want to break contact with that person forever. To answer your specific question it depends what your reaction to that was, exactly. If you got annoyed and called them an asshole or something thats fine on your end and shouldnt be held against you. If you murdered their family and burned down their house… you get the point.

Here's why I think Origami King is the best PM game since the first two:

The first thing that drove me into Paper Mario and Paper Mario TTYD were, unsurprisingly, the titles. The idea, at the time, sounded wacky yet interesting as I was so used to seeing Mario as just a platformer in any title, and the fact he was given a more cartoony design, in a mature viewpoint like an rpg, instantly sold me upon imagining how they would pull the two off. In fact this could've even been the first game to introduce me to RPGs in general as there haven't been any others I've deemed memorable enough to finish, let alone remember. With the sequel, The thousand year door, the game took full advantage of Mario in a more elaborate environment to bring it its own lore that sparked intrigue in just the title. You could even say this brought Mario into the 21st Century better than Sunshine, seeing as the latter's environmental message brought it a decade backwards rather than give its past mythos a proper homage. After these first two, we were given titles like Super, Colour Splash, or Sticker Star, which were either uninspired or simply too rated E once its demographic grew out of the franchise.
Origami King, however, is not only inspired but works as a fascinating idea on its own. Paper Mario, in its heydays, was already a memorable title. So combining these two was like combining sour cream and onions, giving us something that we feel like we've been missing for quite a while.

The second thing is the story. The first PM was a classic case of "Not what is said but HOW it's said" as, although we were used to seeing Bowser kidnap Peach in most of the games, we never expected him to take out Mario first in a fight. This gives Mario not only a reason to go on this journey but a reason to evolve from that first battle as he does so.
TTYD takes this even further by not only having someone else kidnap Princess Peach, but for a more surreal, postmodern reason we never would've expected from even a Paper Mario game: to have her body possessed by an evil spirit known as the Shadow queen, behind the eponymous Thousand Year door, so that this cyberpunk leader known as Sir Grodus can take over the world. That game's premise alone raised the bar to the point even it couldn't climb high enough to reach it once more (until more than a decade later, of course), despite trying with Super Paper Mario (although the idea of having another villain force Bowser and Peach to marry each other not only felt convoluted but still dealt with having her be with Bowser regardless). This as far as left Colour Splash and Sticker Star to be mostly about the gameplay as Super Paper Mario was best known for that anyway.
TOK does three things arguably no other PM game has done:

1. Do less with more. Rather than reveal the villain right away, we reveal what they've done to the common denominator: Peach. After that, everything else is revealed, little by little, as we play the game, from a brother-sister feud (that feels so engaging alone we don't even care about Peach as much anymore) to a plot to destroy all the Toads, to even Bowser and his minions siding with you to go against their origami doppelgangers. The story, as a matter of fact, IS the game as it isn't revealed 100% until you face off the main antagonist and understand their tragic motives to the very end. Which leads to the 2nd thing:
2. Although they did have their emotional moments, the other PM games were mostly "I think therefore I am". Given not only the character depth but what happens to some of these characters, Origami King is definitely the "I feel therefore I am" of any Paper Mario game. It knows you know the games and, after many years, how you're old enough to understand a theme or two.
3. The same way that Blade Runner 2049 knew it was living in a world where as much as the first Blade Runner has left its mark as the movies it influenced (Terminator 2, The Matrix, Inception) Origami King knows how to adapt its visual landscapes and focus on as much of the dirty reality of the world we live in today yet still bring memorable aspects from its past into the present. To put it plainly with an example, Blade Runner 2049 begins with a panning shot of many abandoned buildings, from your average 3rd world country, before closing in on the real star of not only the movie but its predecessor: The city, in all its sci-fi glory, and adapted with a lense that has evolved from the 80s rather than completely grown out of them. TOK not only brings themes as the ones left unspoilered in the 2nd reason, but also ones that were even the roots of World War Two, as well as intense moments that are even jump-scare worthy, before we meet up with familiar faces that have also changed, to the point of allying with you, since even the first two PM games.

The final reason, albeit arguably subjective, would simply be because it reminds you why you enjoyed not only the Paper Mario games but the Mario games in general. They weren't repetitive yet they still weren't afraid to give you what you always enjoyed about them. From the way some of the Legion of Stationary recalled that piano with teeth, from Super Mario 64, yet were scarier mostly because of what they did rather than how they looked, to the way you don't even need proper partners like in other PM games to have other characters help you in battles (so as to flow with the story better), to the bittersweet ending that is bolder than any Mario game because it reflects the aforementioned times we live in and how reality affects us as much as the characters now. Some of the cut-scenes, and battles, are even cinematic to remind me how I don't really play video games anymore compared to when I did, before and after, the turn of the Millennium. It doesn't need to be said that the games HAVE been special to many fans.

Even if most of us have not only moved on, but with Origami King, the Paper Mario franchise isn't even afraid to acknowledge it anymore by doing so as well.

I'll play devil's advocate here. If you're over him and you're ready to move on to a new relationship than by all means do so, but if you still have feelings for him, is it possible for the two of you to work things out? Obviously, "people make mistakes" is a platitude in the face of infidelity, and I'm not saying that cheating isn't a piece of shit thing to do, but if you love him and you get the impression that he's sincere than you may be missing out on a relationship that can still be fulfilling and loving by discarding it haphazardly.

Again, I'm not saying that you SHOULD take him back. I'm just saying that if you FEEL like you still love him and want to be with him that doesn't make you naive or a fool.

Anonymous 45888

Does your love for him mean less than a 401k? You of course have the right to live any life that you want, but if I were you I would stay away from this kind of judgmental thinking. The problem with judging is that it cuts both ways

The dumbest question: How to handle the fact that a person doesn't like you?

I have never done anything wrong to her, have always been there for her even though I didn't know her at all. I always let her know that if anything she can get my help or I could talk to her, after all I am not there to make enemies and I got no female friends.

Instead she would be obsessed with her own insecurities to a point where she would shittalk about me to her brothers friends. Would always stare at me as if she wants to kill me, tried turning the family against me and make up dramas. In the end she was forced to give me a gift that was obviously meant for her mother on Christmas, leaving her looking like as if she ate dozens of lemons and is about to shit herself for the rest of the celebration. (Her grandmother made her do that in front of me, thinking I wouldn't get it but I am learning their language) She would also try excluding me out of family events and talk in their language on purpose, including making comments about me. I still pretend as if I do not understand, but it hurts me. During big family meetings she would always make sure I feel lonely. She would go to a point where she would hide in bathroom to listen to me venting. And the whole idea of trying to copy my mannerisms and style is buzzare, but I already gave up on dealing with it. She would always whine on internet and blame all her life failures over her being obese when its about the way she acts and reacts to things.

I did nothing wrong. I would always be there…Polite and understanding but she would always be so pissed off towards me, especially when I am happy and the attention is towards me. Why some people are so evil? She is 5 years older than me and acts like a child.

I know she will make up an excuse for christmas or do something ridiculous, but i will still buy her a present because I have to be a better person. It'll be cheap but I can't go down to the same level as her, but her existence as a whole starts irritating me at this point. I am so tired of this.

Anonymous 45932

What's with the cuddling obsession some people have? I don't get it. It's so uncomfortable. I feel like people romanticize it like crazy on the internet. It's so weird.

It depends on the type of person you are. I've cuddled with guys I hooked up with and it made me no more attached or interested in them at all. Just depends on the type of person you are and how you feel towards them. It's probably not the best if you're especially sensitive, no. Hooking up in general is risky if you're that type and I'd honestly advise you not have casual, no strings attached, sex. It can be emotional torture if you're actually interested in the person.

Anonymous 45933

Realize she is going through her own shit and you're just caught in the crossfire. It's unfortunate and hurtful, but don't take it personally. She obviously has her own problems and doesn't know how to deal with it in a way that doesn't hurt others unnecessarily. Just continue on, don't preoccupy yourself too much with it, it's not even worth wasting your time on worrying about.

I really wish I wasn't her target then, but I guess I ended up being the easiest one because her family wouldn't allow that.

I am not expecting everyone to like me. However I am expecting to have some respect instead of getting thrown under the bus and being humiliated at. It's okay to not like someone, but at the very least its not good to make your vendetta public. You can throw all tomatoes you want, but not in front of the whole family.
I am sorry I worded myself wrong. I still find the things she does to me really rude, let alone the fact that she thinks she is smart to try making snarky comments about me in their native language which I've been learning for a long time without telling anyone.
The more time passes by, the more I believe that is the case. She is also a person who can't handle not being the attention of men, while also being an example of tradthot pickme. Her friends jokingly call her femcel towards women while she agrees with them and reminds everyone how traditional she is, lying that she loves cooking and cleaning while living with her elderly mother and retired grandmother and doing down to nothing. I had to watch her mother prepare clothing for her, from cleaning to ironing and placing it as if she is a child. (I was sleeping in their house for a weekend) And even so, I always end up being the one helping her mother and grandmother. I had to drive for 2 hours to water their plants (grandmother is highly allergic, mother was out of country) because she,a person who lives with them, couldn't do it. The thing is, their house and garden distance are so small that reaching her own room takes longer time than going to garden to flower plants. I also had to take care of cat and help them build their garden house because she would be playing CSGO on Discord the whole day, a 28 year old woman. She never cooks nor cleans her room, instead her poor mother does all of that.

Before she started being rude towards me, the only things she would say would be awkward compliments that would involve her degrading herself. She would give me a three word compliment just to later tell 2 sentences on how "shitty" and whatnot she is back to which I'd always have to give her a a pat on the shoulder and compliment her back, because I really thought she is a nice persona before all the shit started.

I feel this so hard, anon. Hang in there. If it feels like you're not essential and not a priority, maybe it's time you move on to someone that wants to consider you a priority. Sounds like therapy is needed, but if he's not receptive to it, there's really nothing you can do. "I love you" is cheap. If he doesn't show it and repeatedly confirm to you that he does and that you're a vital part of his life, it doesn't mean anything. He shouldn't be getting angry at you for trying to fix your relationship. Sometimes these guys are just non-confrontational and don't want to be the asshole and break up.

Anonymous 45945

It's both comforting and painful to know there are people who can relate to how I'm feeling. Its also not anger, in some ways its worse, because its apathy. Hes hiding how he feels, and gets irritated when I say I dislike that, but doesn't care enough to reassure me. He cares enough to follow through on his promises so long as he or I don't have to talk or listen to each others feelings, but I think this year has really taken its toll in that regard since we got separated by corona.

Therapy is a wonderful idea, and I think that's what I'll suggest for us before I decide to leave. I don't think this is beyond saving yet, but its getting close to being so. Stay strong love.

Even those that don’t find some way to victimize the WOMAN because “she wants his money” or some stupid shit like that. Moids ACTUALLY have no ability to relate to women emotionally.

I'm 28 and I turn 29 in less than half a year.
If it makes you feel better, everyone (and I mean everyone) I know in their twenties (and even into their thirties) feels like you do. Hell, I know a man in his 50's and he still feels like he's 30 sometimes. It's so, so normal to be feeling like you do.
And don't worry about not having any awesome memories from your teenage years. Think about how much control you had (or, rather, how much you didn't have) in your teens: you had to live somewhere without any real say in it, you had no control over what school you went to or who you were exposed to, and if you wanted to go anywhere I'm assuming you had to get permission in some fashion. But when you're an adult (or moved out, whatever) it's different. You have more opportunities to make those badass memories in your twenties because you have more control over things.
And yeah, being an adult is fucking scary. I'm scared, you're scared, everyone I know is scared. But after a few years of living out on your own (and realizing who you really are and what you want in life) it starts to become a lot more clear. By the time you're 25 you'll have been through so fucking much in your life that you'll be able to say "Sheeeit, been there done that. What's next?"

I feel miserable because I have made a post before about how I accidentally slapped him and he acted like it was the worst thing ever. I likened it to that and he said the slapping was worse because anyone would think that's bad and what he did, not necessarily.

As much as it's his fault too, together you should have both agreed on a pre-decided safe-signal to tell him to stop. Could be snapping fingers or a "one-two-three" grunts that signal you want whatever is happening to stop. If you're going to bother getting kinky you should bother doing it right.

I'm blaming both of them not the victim. She states she was unable to tell him to stop, if she had discussed the topic of kinky sex beforehand, both parties should have had a safeword pre-decided, and if they planned to do kinky acts that limit speech, safe-signals pre-decided. If both of them failed to agree on this or bring this up beforehand, they both failed their responsibility to the other person.

Now, if she didn't expect to have kinky sex, if this was just forced on her with no warning or discussing the matter beforehand, then we're bordering on rape here, and the issue isn't that she couldn't communicate she didn't like it, but that he would have kept going anyway. That is an entirely different discussion. I suppose we can just ask her.

Did you ever have a discussion of the possibility of kinky sex, or did he just one day, out of the blue, grab you and start facefucking you with no warning?

It's too late, should have stopped doing it during high-school, now I'm just fucked. Can't help myself, let alone other people. Thank you though, it's kind of nice and a bit embarrassing to be so encouraged by a complete stranger.
It's partially because of the University cost too, not from America and things work differently here. You can't enter the 2nd or any other year of University until you pay off the previous year, student debt does not exist and no matter what job I got it would have been impossible to pay it off on my own. It's too late, finished a different Uni that I'm okay with and that's that. I'll find a job doing god knows what and try and get my shit together. Thank you for the advice regardless, hopefully you're in a much better state.

Just dumped my boyfriend, the guy I considered the love of my life and soulmate, because I found a bunch of posts he wrote from a while back fawning over underage girls and talking about 13-14 year olds are prime. Were both 25. I’ve been crying non stop. This guy was literally perfect in every other way, and I feel like I’ve made a huge mistake, but I can’t be in a relationship with a hebephile. I just can’t. Its an exercise in futility. Now I feel like I’ve been blackpilled on men. All of them are creeps. Literally all of them. Did I do the right thing? I couldn’t see a future anymore, not with a hebe.

Be careful with guys who want to hurt you and humiliate you during sex. They’re all narcissists. Any guy will tell you, when he loves and respects a woman, he doesn’t wanna hurt them. Get out of there. He doesn’t love you.

There was no way for me to express anything. So I can see how he might not have realized I didn't want to do it. Once before he did something I didn't want to do, but he stopped because the position allowed me to try to get out of it. However, what is unfair to me is that he just slid me underneath him near the edge of the bed and then he facefucked me upside down with his penis totally down my throat. My head was hanging off the edge of the bed so it was like I was stuck and couldn't do anything. Maybe he perceived the fact I was gagging as evidence I liked it? Anyway, my point is, I think he wouldn't have ignored me if he knew.

What hurts me is how I felt like he treated my body like a sex doll, with no regard for my past (I was facefucked upside down except then the guy was holding me upside down in the air, so it was very similar) and in terms of how he just moved me around.

That's the thing I don't like about men, they don't realize their own strength. He's been with chunkier girls in the past so maybe he's not used to someone he can just move around. I can't resist because I'm too weak.

You're very sweet anons, but I want to try to make things work. I'm going to talk to him again about it tomorrow or the day after. If it happens again, that's my limit. It is true I've tried telling him he needs to tell me if he's trying something new because I'm very anxious about what the other person will do to me in a sex act, and I've told him about my past (which includes more assault, but the facefucking one I mentioned was probably my least favorite one because it was the last straw for me with my ex).

I hate to sound so weak. But he's been very caring and respectful in other ways, so I want to believe this is a mistake.

I've told him before if he wants to try anything new he should tell me what it is. He did not tell me. I also asked what he was doing when he pulled me towards him because I couldn't get out of it and he didn't answer (and I've told him I specifically don't like it when I ask him during sex what is going to happen, or what is he about to do, and he doesn't answer).

I told him after that if he had wanted to do this, he should have told me and I'm sure I'd have been willing to try and figure out boundaries. He didn't, though.

I don't think he actually likes seeing pain, but he couldn't see my face in that position. He's said that he doesn't like pain from my end during sex. Usually he gets anxious if he feels like I'm in pain. That's why I feel like a wuss. I still don't think his logic was sound, like it disappoints me he doesn't get how vulnerable I am when I have sex with him or any man for that matter because of the strength difference and such.

Lmao anon, I feel like a piece of shit because after the time I accidentally slapped him, I secretly like the idea of that in a sexual context. But ironically I feel too guilty because I hate the idea of him being in pain to ever bring it up.

Overall, thank you anons, you've given me a lot to think about. I thought, maybe I still am, but I thought I was being a bitch because I'm not over this and it happened a couple weeks ago.

Alright then, now that I have more information, let me state what I think. I think that if this is the first time this has happened, I mean the very first time, nothing like this has happened before, you forgive him if you can. He may be a dumb fucking animal, but that doesn't mean he's an evil fucking animal. He could have genuinely fucked up, not thought about what he was doing, and sincerely regret what he did. It sounds like you agree with the statement here.
>That's the thing I don't like about men, they don't realize their own strength. He's been with chunkier girls in the past so maybe he's not used to someone he can just move around. I can't resist because I'm too weak.
And so, everyone gets one. if however this is not the first time. Fuck him, he's either genuinely too stupid to improve his behavior or inherently malicious. It doesn't matter which, because either way he is going to fucking destroy you and your emotional state with this type of behavior. One event is not enough to make this decision, so if this is the first, forgive him if you can, however, if you do decide you can and will forgive him, this is what I have to say how to prevent this from ever happening again.

>I've told him before if he wants to try anything new he should tell me what it is. He did not tell me.
is a great thing, it's wonderful that you want to discuss things beforehand. Communication is great. This is still not a replacement for a safeword system. Love is passionate, moids are dumb, and this system can and will fail if you encounter this situation again if you don't correct it. This works only if the moid thinks about what he wants to do before he does it, he can't surprise you or do something odd and unexpected that turns out wonderful. The only way to ensure spur of the moment actions do not happen like this again, is the use of safewords. You need to decide on a predetermined safeword, and a predetermined safesignal. Both. He will never, ever be able to use the excuse of "well I didn't know you didn't like it" ever again if you force him to agree with this. I don't care what the signal is. For an example, my safeword is "Tax Exemptions" and my safe signal for when my mouth is occupied is three, slow, forceful slaps. On him or another object. When I use either of these, he fucking stops, because if he doesn't stop, that means he doesn't care, and if he doesn't care, he is an evil asshole that doesn't respect me and I want nothing to fucking do with him. This has never failed yet.

>I told him after that if he had wanted to do this, he should have told me and I'm sure I'd have been willing to try and figure out boundaries. He didn't, though.

Again, this is great, this is a good thing to say because talking things out can make even the most kinkiest ideas way safer by expressing what you may find unpleasent, what he might, and so on. However, this still isn't a complete replacement for a safeword or safesignal. A safeword and a safesignal sates clearly to your partner "I do not like what is happening, I am not feeling good, I want all of this to stop right now, or you are raping me." A safeword and a safesignal is your best friend, because it puts you in control of the sex, even if he's the one acting on you. You are always the one that gets to say "Stop, I don't like this anymore." No matter how spontaneous the act is.

If the moid is a good person, he will feel really fucking bad for abusing you. Not as much as being abused, they're simply not the same, but most people do not want to feel like evil assholes. Feeling like an evil asshole is awful if you're not an evil asshole. It is both of your responsibilities to be 100% honest with each other so no weedling "I didn't know you didn't like it" bullshit can occur.

Again, I do not want to say you shouldn't feel scared or hurt right now. Both you failed each other in this regards, you both failed to respect your partner enough to set explicit boundaries and how to tell the other partner about explicit boundaries at a moment's notice. I know you're feeling scared, weak and hurt now. I hope if he's a good person that he's feeling like an asshole that really fucked up, but I don't know. If you both love and appreciate each other, and want to prevent this from ever, ever happening again. This is the only way to make sure no confusion occurs.

Anonymous 46209

You say this, but as someone who has roleplayed very kinky rape scenarios and other things, that line gets really fucking blurry really fucking quick. Furthermore, using safewords put all the power on the sub at all times, because any person who doesn't respect a safeword is an evil manipulative asshole.

I've gagged and choked on my boyfriend's cock while he facefucked me. That doesn't mean I didn't like it, it means I was gagging and choking.

>I don’t know why anyone would do that position /act if she expressed she had a bad past with it.
If he's stupid he may have genuinely not remembered, now, that brings in other problems of "well then he's a dumb asshole" and that I agree, but that's not the point I'm making. The point I'm making is that you can't tell if he's dumb or evil if you don't set up safewords beforehand. Dumb people can be genuinely good and mean no harm, and still do stupid things that hurt you. That doesn't make them evil, it makes them stupid, and the only way to make sure both parties are aware of whether or not the other person is stupid is through safewords.

I am assuming that he is not evil, just stupid, for the sake of this discussion.

Np, you fuck off moid. There's a way to have healthy sex and everyone should know how to fucking have it. No matter what you think about women's wants.

I wish I didn't take my first semester of uni this year. I wish I took a break this year, because online school truly sucks. There's no social aspect of college and I feel like my grades are slipping because I'm feeling ostracized and depressed. I've talked to teachers about this, and for the classes that I'm not doing so hot in will be reset thankfully so I'm not worried about that anymore.

It's hard enough struggling with social anxiety. Online friends don't fill the void, and usually end up in ghosting. I develop "friend crushes" on people all the time, but at the end of the day, I usually just fantasize about being friends with someone rather than taking the initiative. I just wish some cool extrovert girl would pick me to be her pocket introvert.

I have exams to worry about and all I think about is all the shit he put me through. I wish I could get all that time back. Some examples of his behavior: Breaking up a marriage for fun, starting short term intense relationships with people only to cut them off and tell them they meant nothing to him. Public humiliation if I did so much as talk about a personal interest too much. This is the tip of the iceberg of course.
I want those years of my life back. I'm so behind my peers cause he made all of my life choices for me (they had to be "approved" by him), including my choice in major. I don't know where to go from here. Damn. Just damn.

The pizza job I quit because I broke my phone delivering and didn't want to follow paper directions and the other job I quit because it seemed pointless because of the distance. I haven't had any luck finding anything else and I'm sick of working. I cammed for it bit but it's so unmotivating on the slow days and I hate selling my body for money. I keep getting in relationships with people and end up being so overbearing they lose interest. I'm still hung up on one guy that wants nothing to do with me. Latley I've been considering going back to the living situation with my mom but the environment was so hostile and I felt unsafe. I have lost so much motivation and contemplate suicide daily but I'm too much of a coward I guess. So instead I engage in reckless behavior. I know the simple solution is just to develop skills and hobbies but I really have no interest. I'm hoping I get hired soon so I'm not forced to live in my car.

I'm fucking tired of moids orbiting me, there is just no way known to me to tell them to fuck off without them crying emotional rape to their social circle (which is bad because I'm in a small uni and that would affect me).

Actually the second moid I rejected never talked to me again and even deleted me on fagbook. At first I thought that was kinda rude, pretending I didn't exist anymore just because I didn't want to fuck him, but then I realized that's the best course of action a moid can take when faced with rejection. All other psychos will either keep pestering me one way or another despite knowing I won't fuck them, or get so buttblasted every person that knows him will know I'm evil because I didn't choke on his dick.

Why are moids like this? I'm a lesbian and I would never act like this towards a girl that rejected me. Sure, things get awkward if you still see her everyday and shit, but I have no reason to badmouth her because she didn't fuck me, or keep orbiting her against her will. Seriously, what the fuck do you do in these situations? I'm honestly lost.

My bf of 3 years forgot my birthday, and while I don't really care about holidays or getting gifts and stuff, it kind of hurts my feelings that he forgot because he always remembers to give me a gift on Valentines Day/Birthday, etc, and while I don't need that. I at least wanted to hear Happy Birthday? he really enjoys extravagant gestures and stuff, so it kind of put me off that he didn't remember. sigh.

He has been complaining that I'm distant and inconsiderate (i've been depressed lately) and I wonder if it's passive aggressive/done on purpose out of spite lol. I've been wanting to break up for awhile and wonder if it's the nail in the coffin, but really, it seems silly

this. real talk: almost all sex with men is coercive, women just don't realize it.

Anonymous 46462

Haven't you answered your own question? They are like this because they only want one thing out of you. You know how Jewish rabbis used to reject prospective converts three times to see if they were legit? Honestly, I suggest that if a moid ever asks you out, you first tell him no to see if he's the type that doesn't care about anything but sex.

That would be most of them. It's one thing when it's someone in your instagram DMs saying something like "fuck you whore" when you tell them you aren't going to send them nudes or don't say "fuck me please" if they say you're hot or something. I'm used to that, but some of them, whom I KNOW IN REAL LIFE, have the audacity to say the same type of shit over texts. Then, if I try to call it out, I get told I was leading him on or something like that.

You really can't win with moids. I'd like to know myself what you're supposed to do with some of them, and it's worse when they know where you live, what you're doing, and you see them every day. TL;DR: Men only value women for sex, and on top of that, they believe they're entitled to it. When you turn them down, they will often become enraged because of this entitlement, and I don't think there's anything you can do at that point. When so many men are just that far up their own asses that they get upset when someone won't let them use them, I think the only answer is just to distance yourself from them. I'd rather be considered a weird bitch that hates men than interact with these men and then have them actually do something to me if I reject them.

Anonymous 46470

>Why are moids like this?
Biological imperative to reproduce mixed with being not as attractive or socially gifted as some other guys mixed with a pinch of self-confidence issues.
>Seriously, what the fuck do you do in these situations?
If you're at a uni you could report them for harassment if they're constantly sending you texts. If it's outside of any work or education related context, you probably need to wait until threats are issued though maybe you could go to the police if the harassment is really bad.

That's the problem with men, you treat them like human beings and they think you wanna fuck them, that you're leading them on, when it's just that their standards for treating other people are fucked. It's also why so many of them treat you like trash when you reject them, because they think treating someone with the bare minimum decency is flirting and a great compliment and effort from their part.

Thankfully I can clock most guys like this easily and begin to treat them like trash so they don't mistakenly think I wanna fuck them. Also I acknowledge not all men are like this, at least from my generation a lot seem to be more used to female friendships and while they would probably fuck their female friends if given a chance, they don't annoyingly orbite them like the desperate incels.

I've realized that the reason I've avoided being in a relationship for so long isn't just because I hate men (though that's still partly true), but also because I have so many weird issues. When I see my friends in healthy, normal relationships I always just feel like I'd find it kind of gross if that were me? I really hate PDA and being taken care of, it just makes me feel really undignified and embarrassed. I hate it. The only types of guys I'm potentially attracted to are the unhealthy, pathetic ones who could become emotionally reliant on me and even then the ones I meet irl are too pathetic and disgusting even for me. My friends tell me that I should just shift my type to normie guys who are emotionally stable but I can't find those types attractive- it's so fucked. I can't help but think that they're so unbelievably boring and I always feel like somehow they're patronizing me. I don't even know where to begin with how to 'fix' that.

I'm guessing this probably stems from having parents who didn't love each other and tolerated each other at best. I still feel like that's a flimsy excuse, since a lot of girls probably grow up that way and are relatively fine. I wish I could stop overthinking things and just be normal. At this point I think it's easier to just stay single and celibate than to address these issues. Also men are trash so it probably wouldn't even be worth it. It usually doesn't bother me, but whenever I find myself feeling really disgusted seeing people in lovey-dovey relationships because I think it's degrading I feel ashamed because I know that's not normal and I sound like an incel.

I can kinda relate, I wouldn't be comfortable with a lot of normal relationship stuff. I could never live together with someone and I don't see myself ever opening up to someone on very intimate level. I've never had deep relationships with anyone, friends or even family, so I think I just never developed that part of my personality. It's pretty fucked up to be incapable of connecting with people but if you are content with your life, it's okay. I feel the same way as I've seen so many women in my life suffer because of men, relationships seem pretty terrible to me. Being single is comfier but the lack of physical touch and intimacy kills me sometimes.

Kek I used to think the same when I was a kid (like 7yo or so), never was shamed by anyone for my sex though, just always had those kinda dysphoric thoughts but weren't strong enough to harm my body. Puberty did make everything worse for a bit, probably hormones or whatever, but then it pretty much went back to be like before.

I think there are several people who have some degree of gender dysphoria without it ever getting so bad you want to transition, it's just there and some days it can feel stronger but overall it's not persistently strong enough to drive you to trannyism.

I keep having the urge of messaging a new bf of person A, warning them about this person.

The issue is that the person A always catfishes their potentional partners onto twisting around their entire personality, showing them what they want to see and pretending to be a 'soft n fwagile' kind of person. When in reality, especially IRL this person is one huge trainwreck. They are lying about how traditional and hardworking they are while living off in parents basement, never helping with cleaning or cooking, the least thing they can do is throw their dirty underwear in laundry. Their own mother even prepares clothing for them and whatever. Acts like a complete hysterical bitch IRL, especially around other women. Stares at them as if they want to kill them. Throws tantrums all the time. Manipulates their kind mother and becomes hysterical when things dont go 'her way'. Mother is the only worker in a big house where they live, A quit a job only because they believe that they shouldn't work, even though mother's company is falling apart.

With their previous partner, they would always manipulate and bait them into commiting suicide. Would reach a level where they would even cut themselves just for an excuse to not find a job, sitting there and doing nothing. Would always bitch about their friends, act rude as fuck in their own house in front of guests while 'playing nice' only if they are scared of a person as shit and if they are not home. At one point they started beating out their own partner (well, attempting to) because of how spoiled they were. Through this day I am still hoping their ex found peace. Ex even sent of all of their things through delivery car, even gave spare money just so this person would fuck off their life.

So the problem is that… I really want to anonymously message their current partner, gently warning them that this person is not what they seem. Of course I know the A's reaction, they would always victimize themselves with which I would remind and start throwing tantrums, but the partner they chose this time is a university virgin kid who is 5 years younger than them. I still worry for him, because no one deserves abuse.

Should I write him?

Sorry if it's long but I really need to complain about a lot of things at once, they're all linked. I'm sick of my life going nowhere and having to deal with bad things since birth, and everytime I make progress and can escape my shitty circumstances something completely out of my control ruins everything with a timing straight out of one of these depressing sitcoms like Malcolm in the middle or Everybody hates Chris.

I planned to stay this whole year in Japan with a working holiday visa, it's been something I careful planned for a long time but covid ruined everything and I had to come back to my family's home after six months of stay and after not getting the job I would have gotten if not for so many companies closing because of the emergency state. And even then, I was supposed to go in 2019 but I couldn't graduate on time because nobody wanted to hire me for a mandatory internship so I had to be enrolled again just for my very last semester. After I finally got an internship it was in such a shitty team that after 2 months of internship I was told by the crazy as fuck manager they won't keep me because hiring me as an actual employee would be too expensive, I even had to recruit the intern who had to replace me. And the girl I hired right before leaving was super lucky so she could stay a whole year in the company because my crazy as fuck manager was replaced by a much nicer at the time who didn't harass her for everyone else's failures. Once I could graduate I looked for a job so I could save enough money to live comfortably in Japan, but nobody ever bothered to read my resume. Except one company, that was going to hire me for the job I wanted but they couldn't because the CEO didn't allow the team to spend money on a new employee after all. Now I have a shitty minimum wage job where I can't see myself in the long run, I'm stuck in a lockdown with my mentally ill family who won't stop inviting random people who don't live with us, and because of my family's religion I can't have a private life at all, whatsoever. Since I was super sick for two month from late April to late June but I still had to recover all summer long but I couldn't be tested back then, my family won't stop making fun of me for not being able to breath and talk normally on the phone back then or saying they're super glad I was nearly dying because at least it made me come back. No idea if it was covid or not, so when I tell my family to be careful and to not invite anyone until the end of the lockdown because I don't want to be this sick again they just think I'm mentally ill.

I feel stuck and seeing people my age or younger who graduated with their master's degree before or at the same time as me getting really good job opportunities thanks to their luck or connections is super frustrating. I'm also seeing many of them settling down with their boyfriends or even getting married. I feel like I wasted my time, energy and health doing everything to improve my life and I'm being punished for daring to be a little tiny bit ambitious and not suffering from imposter's syndrome as hard as the very vast majority of my life.

tldr; I'm so unlucky I'm probably cursed, and I'll die of old age as a turbo after working a minimum wage job if I don't die of stress from my mentally ill family members.

Why are so many american romance movies centered on cheating and unfaithfulness? Most of the time the main character already has a boyfriend, but they make him bad or mediocre to make her cheating justifiable. Why can't it just be a story about two people who weren't already in a relationship? That seems much sweeter to me.

I'm paranoid because my relationship is too good to be true, I also just don't understand how people trust each other in relationships. My longest relationship (like the two others I had) was with a nice nerd guy who didn't have a huge number of other options. He still managed to cheat and lie for a year, despite all the conversations about trust and commitment. I always communicated and asked for reassurance, he always responded with so much elaborate bs about how he wants to keep me safe and always be honest with me and he wouldn't even think of lying to me. He was so convincing, presented a lot of sincere-seeming detailed arguments for why committing to me made him the happiest, even cried at times while lying through his teeth.

My now bf is very socially competent, high status and hawt, and especially after going down the redpill rabbithole I can't make myself believe men would ever stay faithful and committed if they can have secret side chicks and flings, no matter how sweet and caring they are towards me and how much cutesy couple stuff and loving sex we have. Why not have best of both worlds since it's so easy to hide affairs? Or why not just pretend to be planning a future just to pass the time with me, until he wants more variety and meets someone new?

My bf has always brought up commitment-related things first and seemed to have thought about them a lot (I'm too chickenshit and have too much pride to risk rejection lmfao). And him being hot has been strangely reassuring since I at least know he isn't just settling for me when he could have all the tinder stacies he wants. But I still have the occasional horrible gut feeling and I worry it will ruin this potentially incredible relationship if I can't curb the anxiety. Or worse, maybe it turns out to be justified in the end. All the commitment talk is just words.

Is it really so unbelievable that someone going through serious shit use unprotected sex in this way ONE TIME? Would you guys think this makes someone a nympho that fucks indiscriminately?

But what bothers me is he won’t take responsibility for his own words and actions and keeps trying to shift blame. He keeps saying he didn’t mean any of it and just got ‘caught up’ in that toxic 4chan culture or that he was just showing off to other guys, he claims it was like a competition to see who could be more degenerate and incel-y, he is basically pulling the whole ‘parody’ card which I don’t buy for a second, I can tell a shitpost from a serious post, and I don’t think he was joking about being a hebephile, because most men unironically are hebes anyway.

I’m just disappointed that someone I thought was innocent and sweet turned out to be another perverse coomer incel with violent revenge fantasies and a fixation on very young girls.

It's definitely a thing to act out when you're abused, but men manipulate and exploit our empathy and they can't be believed as often as we'd like, as you can see here. And the manipulation is even more likely when they're from somewhere like r9k. Weird how manipulative men's "acting out" seems to always involve sexualized abuse and murder of the vulnerable, out of nowhere, while women and girls, who are abused more frequently, and to a more severe degree on average… don't do anything like what he has done. He sounds like a tremendous piece of shit and he wasn't parodying anything. That's always an awful person's go to defense that doesn't want to be held accountable for their disgusting actions, it's always a "joke". I'm sorry this lying fuck wasted your time and played with your feelings. You have to excise him from your life in one way or another, though. Don't let him know anything about yourself or let him convince you he's anything but a psycho. This is not excusable and he sounds very dangerous.

>But what bothers me is he won’t take responsibility for his own words and actions and keeps trying to shift blame
You mean that if he took responsibility and admitted that he did 100% mean all those things, but he's changed since then or something, that would satisfy you?

Regardless of whether the things he posted were just bad taste jokes or not, either way he probably fears that claiming they were at all sincere would just make you hate him.
The question is, would it? You seem to be staying with him despite being certain that he was sincere in posting those things. That being the case, I think the solution to your specific problem is just trying all you can to assure him that you don't care or that you can work through it or something if he admits that he was being serious.

On the other hand, if you'd break up with him for confirming that he was being serious in those posts, then the solution is just to break up right now regardless because you're sure that he was being serious anyway and he can't convince you otherwise, so as far as your relationship is concerned it can't really recover from the spot it's in.

Why can't I ever be liked genuinely and not be just another person to be used by guys
It just hurts knowing how replaceable I am to guys I fall for, they always have someone better in mind and I will never be someone's first choice

Me and my boyfriend haven't been talking or seeing each other as frequently as we've used to. Last time I asked him about why he said that he "just needs some alone time" and that "he haven't been talking much to anyone really" and also that I don't need to bother about it.
Should I really ask him again? Kinda seems like he's losing interest even tho he said he likes to go out with me (not sure if that's even true…) or maybe I'm just being paranoid as fuck.
Also I don't feel quite sexually attracted to him. I don't think it's because I have a low sex drive but rather kinda feel weird and uncomfortable touching a male in a sexual way. When he does that to me I just freeze, lose my balance and go "uhhh…." even though it feels good. When I try to touch his private parts it feels forced and awkward to me, even when we've had a lot of foreplay before. (We're both virgins if it matters.)
I haven't had any relationships before except that weird discord LDR one with a BPD gal (and I was posing as a moid at the time). Maybe that changed my sexual preferences? She even sent me nudes and I liked it… more than my current BF's semi-nudes. I also notice a lot more beautiful women on the streets/web than men, I don't find them attractive unless they have feminine features like long hair, little to no muscle mass, etc. Could I just be a closeted lesbian? If so, how do I break up with my boyfriend explaining the situation? He asked me if I was bi before and I guess he lowkey thinks I am.

Moids will always have someone better in mind no matter who you are and what you look like.
This is exactly why they watch porn while being in a relationship. You are never enough for a moid.
"Good" news is that this statement applies to literally all women, so you could be better than someone's girlfriend (if that's important).

Anonymous 46720

Sometimes you have to make the first move, even if it's a moids job.
However I do think that he was probably not worthy of you.

Anonymous 46721

You were catfishing a straight girl and posing as a moid to get nudes? Wtf. That’s creep behavior.

Anonymous 46722

Is it even worth being in a relationship with moids then, due to their coolidge effect coomer tendencies? Everytime my bf watches porn I want to strangle him, and he pretends he doesn’t when I know he does, it makes me extremely resentful. Also the fact I can’t even mention a male celebrity without him seething with jealousy.

Anonymous 46724

I know now. That's why I cringe at the memory.
I didn't plan to get any nudes though, she just randomly sent them to me one day, I-I swear!
The nudes weren't my goal, the relationship was a fake, I didn't think of it as anything serious even tho she was literally planning a future with me. I knew that one day she'll find out I'm female and be disgusted at me and/or love me even more bc she was possibly pan, evident by talking how beautiful the girls at her school were, so I logged off Discord one day and never came back.
The problem is, I liked them way more than my bf's half-nudes that he sent me knowing I'm a girl and having seen me IRL.

Anonymous 46725

Did you talk to him about why does he do that and why you're not allowed to do things he does?

Anonymous 46727

This is probably why I find it so difficult to trust moids because this happens every time I think I find a "redeeming" moid. Pretty discouraging but expected to say the least
Good point about being better than someone's girlfriend, but it hasn't happened and I have no hopes of this ever being the case, with the way that things have been for me but damn would it feel good to make someone fall for me like that for once in this miserable life I live

Ah man, if I knew the guy had someone else in mind I wouldn't have continued playing into the flirting/back and forth until it was too late. It's a shame, I really liked him too… I guess I had it coming for me for not assuming the worst right away after my experience with getting ditched for another in the past.

I found an e-bf but I don’t really like his character anymore and want to dump him. The thing is I absolutely hate hurting other people’s feelings, even when they are hurting mine, pathetic I know. If he was upset I would feel terrible especially since he isn’t really the most attractive guy and probably doesn’t have many options. Ugh. I hate this feeling.

I have nothing to offer. I rarely even think about getting a bf again anymore. I'm coming to terms that I'll die alone, and I'm not exactly angry about it. I still feel lonely from time to time and I miss having someone to talk to and cuddle with.

Well, the other posters are right that meeting people from /r9k/ is pretty much begging to meet very damaged people, and yes, it's a big flag when they talk about throwing acid or murdering and raping women and children.

I guess, what I meant to say was that a lot of posters on anonymous messageboards in general are edgy for the sake of it, so maybe she wants to clarify things.

But you're right. What he posted isn't exactly on the same level as those casual racism for fun shit or banter for the sake of it.

Honestly, I think it;s best to dump him before it's too late. You shouldn't feel bad, I know it's hard but it's best to think about yourself than others in a first place. In the end if you don't dump him sooner you will feel even worse.

Today was a weird day.
While I was at my bf's house, I joked about the black dress hanging on the clothes line asking him if it's his (he's sent me pictures of him crossdressing before, he's a weird dude and I gotta admit that I liked the pics).
Suddenly he goes to his closet and asks me if I'd like to see him cross-dressing IRL. I wasn't against it so I agreed.
When he was done and dressed nicely in a girls dress and also a sock-stuffed bra, I felt something and pushed him against the wall, making out with him passionately and fondling his fake breasts.
Then I got my hands under his skirt and groped him (he didn't like it tho so I stopped).
He was seemingly surprised at me being very passionate, so he asked me why wouldn't I just date a woman instead.

I am now fully convinced that I'm a lesbian or that I'm really, really into women.
But the question is, how do I break up with him now that I know?

My bf is really psychologically abusive to me and gaslights me constantly, and I don’t know how to leave him because it’s a horribly toxic codependent relationship. I’m completely psychologically, emotionally and financially dependent on him, I moved country just to be with him. He uses my past sexual abuse to pavlov train me, and he knows I’m really insecure and compare myself to other girls and his exes, today he wanted me to get him off and tried to convince me to have a threesome with him and his ex and used his prettiest ex who he still talks about constantly, specifically to trigger me. Then when I got sad he claimed it was just a joke when it clearly wasn’t, called me a dramatic bitch and he went to bed to watch porn loudly and left me alone to cry. I feel like complete shit. I’m such a doormat.

Why is that? In my opinion, the cons of being alive outweigh the pros by a huge margin.
Unless you come from a super rich family in the first world where all the family members are 100% mentally sane women (and that is very much impossible) or just straight up masochistic.

I think you should take a bit of time to confirm that you're a lesbian first and that it's not just some temporary thing that you're feeling.

If however, you're convinced that you are and you want to break up with him, then like most breakups, it's always best to do it in person, keep it simple and to the point.

Anonymous 46800

>I am now fully convinced that I'm a lesbian or that I'm really, really into women.
Are you no longer attracted to your bf at all or something? You could be bi, or you could be hetero with a crossdressing kink, or any number of other intermediate situations. Be careful about jumping to conclusions.
Remember that there are guys who love getting pegged by women but would never be attracted to an actual man. Sexuality isn't necessarily so black and white.
I definitely think breaking up with him at this stage would be premature. It hasn't even been a full day for you to think about how you feel.

This is going to sound like a weird complaint, but here it goes: my bf makes me laugh too much.
We've known each other since childhood so we've got over 20 years of references and in-jokes with each other, and those, combined with his really jokey personality means a lot of the time he barely has to try to be funny and I'm a wheezing mess.Sometimes though it's not really appropriate to be laughing at loud, like at some kind of event for someone where someone is speaking, and it's not appropriate for me to just randomly start guffawing after he whispers something funny in my ear. And like, I can't even really get mad at him because I love him to absolute death and he's always trying to make me laugh and enjoy myself, so I feel like kind of a bitch sometimes when he goes home after a weekend stay and my chest hurts from laughing so much while he was here. Like how much of a bitch would I be if I asked him 'please stop being so charming and funny', like that just sounds stupid. So like AAAA idk what to do about it. It's not even a big issue, but just something I think about from time to time and kinda annoys me sometimes. As crazy as that sounds.

He told me many times that he doesn't want anything to come near his butthole and that he would heavily dislike getting pegged so I highly doubt he'd change his mind. He also hates it when I touch his butt, sadly.
>no longer attracted to your bf at all
Problem is, I kinda wasn't in the first place. See this one >>46717

I'm trying to figure out but I definetely know I'm attracted to women (maybe because my previous relationship was with an actual one and that kinda changed my perception but again it wasn't that serious)

Yeah, it doesn't. But why do I only like the most feminine/androgynous men? And why, when that shit was happening, I actively imagined him being an actual, XX-chromosomed woman with real breasts?

By the way, I haven't contacted him since then yet. We're used to talk to each other one time in, like, a week so I definitely have some time.

Anonymous 46812

>He told me many times that he doesn't want anything to come near his butthole and that he would heavily dislike getting pegged
I didn't mean your bf specifically.
I meant that if it's possible for a guy to like it in the butt but not like sex with men, then it's possible for you to like the contrast of a guy in a dress with fake tits but not necessarily crave sex with actual women.
It's fine if you do, but don't pigeonhole yourself into "X made me feel Y therefore I must be Z." Take time to consider what you actually want, not what you believe it makes sense for you to want based on what society says about what things specific kinds of people should enjoy.
