my bf nearly choked me out this morning during an argument, he grabbed my neck and pushed me until i was half-off the bed we were on. i didn't feel threatened maybe because i am stupid but he grabbed my throat really hard and bruised it. i also later dislocated my thumb bending it backwards while dissociating and immediately pushed it back into place. it was backwards all the way to my wrist and the crack was so loud if snapped me out of my stupid and now horribly bruised and weak but somehow doesnt seem to need a doctor. been hallucinating, the world always feels like an ocean, i get terrified sometimes. i'd choke me too if i could do it that effectively. i wish i could love correctly, myself or others. i only seem to love dogs and tiny kids and texmex.

first of all, you need to leave him. you need to develop some sense of self-preservation, and quickly. this is not okay but you also you don't sound like you're in good state of mind to even properly assess environmental threats, probably because you're actively undergoing abuse. second, don't do that with your thumb anymore.

My boyfriend doesn’t love me how I want him to. He doesn’t understand me at all even though he thinks he does, it’s infuriating. He thinks I’m the one for him but I’m going insane pretending to be his perfect girl. I would keep it up forever if only he would love me properly.

Then he’s wrong for you. So many people get stuck in miserable relationships with a person who doesn’t speak the same love language as them and it never changes. It’s not too much to ask for someone to love you in a way that makes you feel loved. It should be one of the non negotiable of a relationship. Someone else out there will love you the way you want to be loved. Start thinking seriously about finding a new bf.

Anonymous 58251

>So many people get stuck in miserable relationships with a person who doesn’t speak the same love language as them and it never changes.
If you actually read the book on love languages you'd know this statement is retarded. The entire point of the book is to help guide people into realizing what their love language is so they can convey to their partner how they want to be shown love. You could argue that then the problem becomes the other person refusing to change how they express love towards you, but at that point that's not a love language problem, that's the other person being an asshole problem.

Anonymous 58253

What's retarded is the idea that people should change the love language that is natural to them, when the other person should understand and accept it instead. Or break up.

Anonymous 58254

People don’t change, someone who needs physical affection and words of affirmation is never going to be happy with someone whose style of showing affection is doing the dishes. Someone whose style of affection is giving someone a necklace or some soap is going to feel forced and resentful at having to change their style of affection too and in the end it will just feel fake and strange to them. You cannot ask someone to change their needs and personality to suit yours and vice versa without it feeling forced and strange to the other person. You’re just fucking incompatible. Accept it and find someone else you’re actually compatible with.

You people are retarded narcissists, you can express love differently than you feel love you damn twat. You tell your bf "hey I really like it when you spend time with me, not when you spend money on gifts", not "hey, I know you like getting gifts, but I need you to now enjoy me spending time with you or this relationship is over." Unless you're a literal retard, you should be able to manage to understand the nuance.

You're both fucking stupid.

My ex boyfriend is a true narcissist that emotionally and mentally abused me pretty badly. I am still trying to recover 6ish years later because of how deep it was, and because he would not stop harassing me years afterward. Now he acts like the victim and never apologized for everything. I'm almost certain that right now he is trying to find ways to paint me as the abusive one and has been set on ruining my life as much as he can from afar. He has the upper hand, too, unfortunately. He is quite well-known where I live and his family is very well off. It's all just so weird to me. I have only told very few people what he did to me (and not even all of it), so it's not as if I'm out here trying to ruin his reputation. I don't really get it tbh.

Employer wants me to get covid tested for a business seminar thing that starts next week. I really don't want to. I never get out of the house except to take walks alone in isolated nature. I'm not sick either.
It's especially dumb since these idiots have been talking for a months about how they're going to go bar crawling every evening of the seminar week. Like don't they realise they are 1000 times more likely to catch it there than getting it from little old me ?

Anxiety is really bad. I know if I don't quit my job the stress is going to kill me but I don't know what would happen after that. When I feel like this all my suicidal ideation comes back and I just want out

Anonymous 58389

It's just a covid test, anon. It's not like they're asking you to take a vaccine. The covid test is just a quick nasal swab. you'll be in and out in like 15 minutes, excluding the waiting room stuff.

There is liability that comes with a huge fine if an employeer willingly lets covid spread in their business.
When they get audited, a "my employee didnt want to take the test and said she was healthy, so we don't have the paperwork to prove that she's covid free" wouldn't be a good excuse.

Don't take their request as an accusation that you have it. Doesn't matter if you don't go outside or are less likely to have it than your coworkers. it's a paper trail so your employeer's ass is covered.

Just think about how'd you feel if one of your other coworkers who barhops didnt want to take a quick test because "i'm fine bro, trust me" and then spread it to you or your loved ones.

Anonymous 58390

exactly, and your "i don't go out!" thing is no replacement for a proper test. plenty of people are just complete liars. i think it's more respectable and responsible for employers to require testing regardless, even if it is a little annoying

I'm not sure if I understand correctly, but what do you mean You don't know what will happen after you quit your job? I'd imagine you would embrace the NEET life… unless you're smart about it and look for work or education before you leave. Make an exit plan, it may eliminate some of that anxiety and by extension your suicidal thoughts.

Anonymous 58394

Your health comes before anything else. You can't do well at work if you're not doing well in your own life.

If you wake up every day with suicidal ideation because of your job, you should move on from there.

Covid is the perfect time to find a new job. So many positions are open at the moment, don't let this opportunity pass you.

You've already taken the first biggest step to improving your situation, which is realizing that it's shit. The next step is taking the initiative and getting out of that rut.

Doesn’t it make more sense to tell guys you are not a virgin and then the virgin fetishists are instantly turned off? I actually am a virgin but I told my bf I wasn’t because I was embarrassed at still being a virgin in my late twenties. Then when later I told him I actually am a virgin he couldn’t really believe me. It was dumb to lie.

I don't live in the US, and there is no such fine here. In fact, employers cannot force employees to get tested.
The thing that pisses me off isn't the test itself (though I maintain it is beyond useless if they all go barhopping for a week straight…), but the fact that they dropped this on me yesterday out of nowhere when the seminar thing had been planned for months. It's a pain to get a slot to get tested here, and I have no idea if I'll be able to get one in time. So it's just more stress and anxiety on my plate because they are being inconsiderate idiots.

To be fucking honest I kind of don't care too much about the women either. They're perfectly compliant to the gross shit husbands and brothers and fathers perpetuate and they're ready to get their daughters' genitals get mutilated.

Has anyone else completely resigned themselves to being alone because they can’t be perfect? I sabotaged my relationship with an amazing man because I kept thinking who cares, he can replace me in a minute with a better girl anyway. If my face or body or personality can’t be exactly the way I want it to be, or I feel like someone doesn’t have the exact impression of me I want, I just self sabotage and isolate myself from people.

Not much to tell really. My idiot, meathead neighbor and his friends tried to hack into my sm accounts. They were bragging about it while I had my window open. (Because they're kinda dumb) This same neighbor threw a chair at my door and called me a "crazy witch." (OBV. I didn't open the door to confront him) I had to even bring his garbage bin in because it was on my driveway and I didn't want to be blamed for it by the tenants. When I did, he had this smug smirk when he thanked me. I said nothing and went inside. Another guy friend I friend zone started stalking around my house so I had legal advice about the issue. I complained on 4chan ( this was before I discovered crystal cafe) only to earn mockery and larping. Today was the last draw. I got into a confrontation with a incel and walked away. My heart was racing and I trembled from anger. There is something wrong with incels and stalkers. They're broken. I can't trust men anymore, not after all this. But I don't hate them either.

i'm sorry to hear all of that. it's not surprising. you cannot, basically ever, go to men for sympathy. that's why the /r/relationship threads are also maelstroms of nastiness, because they're so occupied by men who blame the woman for everything. i used to post threads in /adv/ when it was first opened and i used to get soooo much shit for telling them porn is damaging to women and relationships, on top of being abusive/rape on tape. they just told me i was a crazy bitch that'll be alone forever on repeat, and that "we don't self insert!!! you're just insecure!!" lmao.

it's not just incels and stalkers and 4chan though. remember that australian comedian that was raped and murdered and her family and grave was harassed and vandalized for no reason at all other than women are hated? people in real life actually went out and repeatedly vandalized this poor girl's grave. it's just sick. they're unfeeling and unhuman.

I have npc syndrome. I don't enjoy anything, basically. I feel like my life is a script I'm just reading through. I don't have any friends. I will likely live with my boyfriend and his extremely generic family. it's weird. he cares about living and the things he does. I can't relate at all. I feel like I'm secondary to him and it's not his fault. I do have hobbies and I create things but none of it brings me pleasure or anticipation. It's all generic, the things I create, too. It feels like I'm just executing some mindless code when I draw. Everything looks too simplistic and rigid that I create. I smoke and think, that's the only pleasure, albeit not a large one, I feel, as well as sex. But I've accepted I will never find a man who wants to have sex as much as I want.

I want to not smoke, though, and I wish I didn't get pleasure out of sex because it requires another person. I don't enjoy masturbation even though I cum. I wish I could be self-sufficiently happy, as all I do is like a larp of that.

Today I talked to my long term bf about the idea of getting married and having kids. He mentioned how he wants to get married and have kids one day. I told him I’m not getting any younger and would like to start planning a family within a year or two. He told me he won’t be ready to get married or have kids for another 10 years or so and wants to focus on his career. When I asked him if that’s his way of saying he’s not interested in having marrying me or having kids with me, he just went very quiet. I got the hint and realized he means he’s planning on marrying another woman after me. I’ve been really upset all day, crying and feel resentful at having my time wasted like this. Now I feel like there’s no future for us and I have to start looking for another boyfriend. But that means having to throw away 4 years of a relationship with a man I thought was more serious about me.

That's an awful feel. I'm sorry anon. Leave. You'll be sad for a week but then happy as hell you left.
Moids have this conception that they can fuck around until they're 40 and then suddenly find a 20 year old girl to marry and have kids with. It's really disgusting. No woman wants to marry a man that much older than her, and even if they did, the guy would be too old to enjoy having kids, and the kids would be poorly served by having an elderly father, who would then pop off and die 20 years earlier than the fathers of their friends. There's something wrong with men. I really just hate them so much sometimes.

I'm dating a guy 4 years younger than me. Older men are the worst, they just want to control you and boss you around and lecture you on things. Any man who wants a significantly younger woman is nothing but an abuser. Men are the ones who hit the fucking wall after spending 15 years doing nothing but masturbating to disgusting, violent, degenerate pornography and staying up to 2am playing video games. That's why they're all balding and fat now. Men shouldn't be left to their own devices, because they can't take care of themselves or make good decisions, they just deathgrip their cock and lurk on discord and twitch all night until they wake up at age 40 with heart disease, pre-diabetes, more hair on their pillowcase than on their head, and a microdick from growing out their beergut. Men are nothing but trash.

About a month ago a girl and I had a strong mutual interest in each other which lead to cuddling, calling each other pet names, having some of the best and most meaningful conversations ever, etc. but after talking to her friends she wanted us to quit what we were doing because she felt our age difference (18-26) was too large and introduced an unintentionally power-imbalance between us.
And while I agreed with her I then decided to bottle up my feelings to focus on a difficult period in my life and now all this heartbreak is hitting me at once and I just feel so lonely and unloveable with tons of self-esteem issues like I did before I met her.
She did say we'd stay friends but she hasn't really stayed in touch despite me reaching out to her which hurts me quite a bit even though I know she is very busy.

I'm gonna honor her wish to never lose that optimism that she loved about me though even if it's tough right now!

I hate how men think they have an unlimited time to fuck around and can out off marriage and kids until their late 40s and 50s.

Studies have shown that the DNA in male sperm starts degrading steeply after 35 and that men over 40 have a 1 in 8 chance of having a child with autism, even if the mom is young. Older fathers also put young mothers at risk for more pregnancy, fetal and labor complications, and the chances of a child with schizophrenia also rise sharply with sperm from men over 35.

Moids trip over themselves to post photos of empty egg cartons but then pull this shit where they're shooting gimpy 50 year old swimmers and breeding up potatoes. Maybe both genders should grow the fuck up and acknowledge that they need to learn how to commit to a relationship in their late teens and early 20s so they can be settled and pumping out babies by 24 instead of 44. But historically moids have always done this kind of bullshit. 50 year old men trying to marry women young enough to be their granddaughters is just absoulutely disgusting.

My boyfriend just made a big deal about me going out to celebrate one of my male friend's birthday this weekend 1 on 1, and anyways we can only be 2 people at a table… My boyfriend says its basically like a date. Ive known this friend for over 4 years and I barely ever hungout with him. Sometimes he acts overly nice which can lead me to thinking hes flirting and stuff, but I always ignored the comments and frankly we're just friends, he knows I have a boyfriend and I always talk to him about them. Hes also on the spectrum so when he does something weird I just shrug it off because hes awkward in that way sometimes. He's genuinely a good friend of mine that just gets lonely at times (he gets rejected by his friend group a lot because he's socially awkward) and I know he means no harm he just has difficulty with how to act with girls. I got upset at my boyfriend but went and canceled the plans with my friend. Am I really in the wrong? My boyfriend even went to say that he would've been okay with it if my friend asked them for permission to go on a night out with me… I don't know who's in the wrong.

Having friends is good. But your boyfriend isn’t wrong.

But don’t limit yourself. A person you’re with must stimulate the greatest growth.

I think the answer of this depends on the relationship. Don’t limit yourself but know you won’t be growing with your boyfriend if you continue this behaviour. If he doesn’t like how it feels that’s right of him not wrong.

What matters is how you feel.

Honestly if I was the guy and I felt you were going a date with someone else and that you chose this desire over me/my desires.
Then I’d rightfully consider ending the relationship. For the best of us both.

Was just thinking about a guy I dated when I was young. He was twice my age, married, and in an authority position. Even just that is screwed up enough.

But I realized now how little effort he put into the relationship and that he basically used me for sex only. He had a very well paying job, but aside from taking me to the cheapest, greasiest, places to eat, never took me anywhere that involved spending money. Used to turn up to "dates" wearing old dirty clothes, never gifted me the smallest thing, pressured me to do sexual things I didn't want in locations I didn't want, and constantly, constantly would tell me how stupid and easy I was as a way to lower any feeble resistance I might have put up.

Like my self confidence wasn't low enough already to be dating some disgusting old man who doesn't even bother to tidy up or change his sheets for me. I was young, pretty, and miles out of his league. Yet he had to treat me like trash and make me feel like I was the one unworthy of him and too stupid to function. The few rare, vaguely kind things he did for me were more in his own interest, not mine. He was even selfish in conversation, selfish in bed, and so full of himself, telling me about all the other young women he had done the same to and how we should have a threesome with one, because I wasn't enough alone obviously. There was nothing in it for me.

It's so sad to realize how attention and touch starved I must have been to go through all that, and like it, for almost a year and only stop because I moved away. And then humor his regular harassing messages for another year on top of that.

I got the last laugh though. I had to contact him about something years later, not out of choice. We hadn't been in touch for a while and a sent a formal email requesting something. He sent back the same old, expecting to that we would just pick up where I left before.

Even though I hadn't fully processed what had happened between us, I had this overwhelming wave of revulsion. I saw red and fucking snapped. I immediately deleted that email account and opened another. I took everything, everything and sent it to his employers, about 100 documents, photos, and proof of all other people he had fucked (over). He immediately got fired and has been laying low since.

That was years ago though but I still have a complex about people thinking I'm stupid that I'm trying to work through. And having to accept that, yes, I was that desperate just for the lowest, most worthless, basic acknowledgement that I existed.

I hate most anime and the obsession people have with it as a medium. Hardly worth a ''vent'', but whatever.

I feel like any artistic achievement within the medium always comes to fruition in spite of it being an anime, never because of it (Evangelion, Ghibli movies, etc.); probably 95% of the medium is littered with generic garbage and same-y character tropes meant to cater to manchildren and kids that has terrible pacing and awkward nonstop exposition (show, don't tell ffs) and dialogue dumps and fanservice galore.
I get annoyed by the constant cuteness and perceived attractiveness of the characters that gets not just praised but obsessed over - this goes for fujos but especially and mainly waifushit that men (and even some women) cling to as some kind of coping mechanism.
Even just pertaining to the aesthetic, I absolutely loathe and physically cringe at stuff like Hololive and I've even started getting annoyed by Touhou and the likes after seeing those godawful fumos everywhere.

Even the East Asian media I enjoy consuming is too often riddled with tropes, cliches, and aesthetic influences inspired by anime to their own artistic detriment. Only stuff like old Japanese cinema is tame and has proper artistic merit to it imo.

However, this will change when you will finish studies and will have more time and mental energy for yourself. End of studies is very stressful, and bad stress blocks your creative abilities.

How do I stop relying on others' perceived attractiveness of me to give me self-worth?

It literally is the gas I run on. I'm obsessed with it.

The reason I'm asking is because I wanted to be a cunt to my assburgers sister the other day because she kept on claiming her waist is smaller than mine, but it legitimately isn't (mine is inches smaller, and my entire measurements are more extreme than hers). It's such a dumb thing to want to be a bitch over, who cares if she thinks her waist is smaller when it isn't. I felt triggered over her cope statements like "abs wouldn't look good on my waist bc it's so smol uwu" when I suggested working out (I have abs) and I wish I didn't feel so attacked. Like, now I'm in a complex over my waist still not being small enough even though it is physically and proportionally smaller than hers. To add insult to injury, she was like "it's a good thing all of us girls in this family loved our bodies! Uwu" and I suffered from significant, obvious anorexia everyone in my family (but her) commented on. In fact, when family members would comment on my body, she would interrupt as if they were talking to her because she is obsessed with believing she's extremely skinny (she's a healthy weight, skinny, sure, but not ana) and my family members would have to correct her that they were talking about my weight. It's like she never can accept I'm a lower weight or a smaller waist or anything and I wish this didn't affect me the way it does, it makes me feel sick and idk why I'm so obsessed with my older sister acknowledging certain facts. I just always wanted her to admit something positive about me.

When other people make it or when we go to a pizza place, he always eats the pizzas with golden crusts and properly baked cheese and never complains, so obviously it has nothing to do with him preferring half-raw pizzas.

I was implying that themes such as existentialism or coming-of-age tales as they are presented in such stories aren't enhanced at all by them being in the format of an anime, but that they achieve such feats of resonating with the audience and telling a meaningful tale in spite of that, with the aesthetic appeal of anime only serving to make such themes more palpable to the average consumer, really.

I think cinema, certain types of TV shows, and especially literature lend themselves much better to the exploration of such themes and various others at a more visceral, direct level, and are simulataneously held to more rigorous standards if they do attempt to delve into them, and as such hold much more cultural relevancy when they do succeed.

Whereas the more juvenile - male, introverted - target demographic of most anime eats things up too readily, setting the bar as low as it is. It's outright jarring seeing them try mix in half-assed philosophical concepts and moral dilemmas, if anything.

>I was implying that themes such as existentialism or coming-of-age tales as they are presented in such stories aren't enhanced at all by them being in the format of an anime, but that they achieve such feats of resonating with the audience and telling a meaningful tale in spite of that, with the aesthetic appeal of anime only serving to make such themes more palpable to the average consumer, really.

Okay, I believe I see a point you're making about the medium being limiting, but again I ask, are you saying that Evangelion would have been better as a live-action drama? Ghibli movies instead being animated by Warner Bros? Themes overall sure, but for your argument to make sense then these specifically mentioned items things would have to be better in other mediums, and I would just like to know which ones.

>I think cinema, certain types of TV shows, and especially literature lend themselves much better to the exploration of such themes and various others at a more visceral, direct level, and are simulataneously held to more rigorous standards if they do attempt to delve into them, and as such hold much more cultural relevancy when they do succeed.

I'd be pretty hard-pressed to say that Ghibli films do not hold a lot of cultural relevancy in Japan in general. Evangelion much less so, but probably the most of any late night anime. I suppose the main problem I'm having is that you seem to have a survivorship bias towards novels, cinema and TV shows: there are plenty of cultural artifacts that you are only aware of because other people keep talking about them, and don't talk about the rest as time goes on. 99% of novels sell like dogshit, are hot trash, and noticed by no one. The amount of golden age cinema films you are personally aware of let alone have watched can probably be counted on two hands.

You don't seem to grasp that majority of novels are awful, the majority of films are awful, and that the majority of TV shows are also awful, then somehow think that anime is unique in this regard.

My bf wants to talk about how we don't have as much sex as we used to. I just have no libido at all right now. How crushed will you think he'll be if I tell him he's always been a 6/10 in bed?

Anonymous 59020

If he's not selfish and just genuinely not unaware of not being good, I would start with telling him what you would like. I would try different positions and try to get past the awkward feeling of communicating during sex. It can be weird at first but its worth building up. Sometimes men are so unaware of what doesn't feel good for you and you have to show them how to do something right. (Also I think most men just don't do enough foreplay.) Porn is to blame lol

Unless your bf is super hot it’s natural to not have a high sex drive with him. Its natures way of preventing betas from impregnating us.

As an anon that is extremely horny and never has had a bf that fulfills my sex drive, please consider your bf is being very open and honest to you with this information - it's hard to say that kind of stuff. I would say you don't need to put it so bluntly like that, you could say sex could be better for you and perhaps use that as an opportunity to get a sex life that better suits you so it's a win-win on both fronts.

If he really loves you and wants more sex, he will improve (given that you are being upfront in directing him to do what you want).

I hope things work out between the two of you. Sexual incompatibility is a difficult reality to live through.

I fell in love with a person I can never be with. It happened so fast, too. I used to think I couldn't fall in love anymore but here it is.

And I hate it. They're someone I can never be with. We'll only be seeing each other for a few more days, ans then never again for the rest of my life. I don't even think they like me in any way. Yet I've never met someone I'm more compatible with, with whom I can talk and laugh for hours and never get tired of their presence.

I hate myself for being so lovesick over this person. I feel like I'm dying over and over again with every second that passes.

i kind of feel for them. i mean, we all want to get married, right. and it's frustrating that it's so difficult and takes so long. you can spend 3 years dating a moid and then he decides he isn't ready for commitment and dumps you. wash and rinse until you're 35 and loading a revolver. moids have fucked us all over with their bullshit about not wanting to get married until they're 50 years old, and comparing women to a "ball and chain" when most women would do anything to help and pleasure their moid and are willing to dedicate their entire life to him. and men are like "she's probably a gold digger who will nag me and then divorce rape me. i'd better just play video games for 30 years and then marry a 14 year old in mexico." she's wrong to take it out on you but i understand how she feels and why. you can do everything right and still end up fucked. how many dozens of novels were written about men who put off marriage and act wishy washy on committing to any one woman? there are literally entire novels about mens propensity to do this in times where there are no parents or society pressuring them to stop being a manchild and get on with marriage and being an adult already. arranged marriage is awful, sure, but when men stop having society force them to do the right thing they just fuck around until they're 40 and wake up single and depressed and then go kill themselves, and they leave a corresponding woman in the same position. basically lemmings all running off a cliff.

men are pieces of shit.

Ages ago I read a blog of a girl who studied Korean in language schools in Seoul during a gap year from college. She would talk about dating, fashion, food, and had a group of similar friends who she regularly hung out with. She went on to study interpreting and really inspired me to sign up for language classes to do the same. Her blog stopped as soon as she entered her master's and I always wondered how she got on. Had she stopped the blog because she dropped out (she mentioned some personal issues)?

Anyway, I just managed to dox her. Turns out she went to fucking YALE on a scholarship and got special volunteering experience through her family connections. She's now working as a professor. I'm not jealous but it felt like her life was in touching distance for me. Like if I worked hard I could have done what she did. Gone to the places she did, enjoy the same fun things.

But now I realize there's chasms between us. These types of special achievements and recognition just never happen for me. I thought I'd found a cheat code to an amazing life. But no, I'll never have that.

My friend is getting abused by her long term boyfriend. I always suspected something was up with him, he was always extremely moody and overall gave me an awful gut feeling. She doesn't want to leave him despite this, though. It's clear she still loves him and has no intention of leaving him, despite her awareness of just how awful his behavior is. This has been made worse by the fact that they've been dating for 5 years.
I want to be there for her, but I'm busy nearly all the time. This is beyond cruel, she's a sweet lady. She doesn't deserve this shite. I hate men so much it's unreal.

I usually only lurk, but I need somewhere anonymous (that isn't 4chan) to vent. My ex girlfriend has been villainizing me terribly on social media even though she was the dumper and our relationship was comfy and with 0 conflict until the very first conflict at the end which was caused by communication issues over something important to me (she was conflict avoidant type, I'm bad at expressing feelings type). I found out about this 2 days ago and I feel so hurt and anxious about this. She has dehumanized me, posted a vulnerable text I had sent (to ridicule me with her followers?) and is creating this narrative like if I was a terrible and crazy person. The worst one was a post about how her therapist said "I sound like the worst", and that just broke me. I don't know what to make of this.

I considered maybe I'm actually crazy and unaware? But to be honest, she's never had anything nice to say about any of her exes and has made posts saying that she has only dated unhinged women because of her low self-esteem.

This is actually making me terrified of dating again because I feel so blindsided and never expected this of her. I keep thinking what could I have done to make her hate me this much, but I'm coming up blank. She's met my best friend and parents and they're coming up blank too.

I have been feeling awful lately because I have been dating this girl who considers herself asexual for quite some time and we've had sex twice. While basically no sex is part of my problem, the last time we had sex I wanted to make her feel very good so I got a little rough and she had me stop. The bad part is that I didn't feel like stopping, I wanted to fuck her hard and make her cum against her will, to see her cry for it. Anyway, I stopped and went to the bathroom and basically masturbated to the thought of raping her. I didn't cuddle her that night, I just felt dirty and even though I really like her I feel like I'm not getting any sexual satisfaction from this relationship and that makes me angry, maybe this is why I'm having these thoughts but idk. So I'm feeling borderline rapist, disappointed in myself, sexually frustrated, angry and sad at the same time. I don't want to break up with her, I don't have anyone else to fuck anyway and maybe it's for the best we don't have sex at all.
And while she hasn't explicitly told me anything I suspect she has suffered sexual assault because she told me she feels safe to do it with me the first time and that makes me feel even more awful but also I feel jelly when I imagine that's the case. Maybe I should go to therapy.

Why ? Will he be moving at the other end of the world ? Or just moving to another city ?

If they have been together for 5 years, I'm guessing that they live together. Do you think that you could offer her to stay at your place if she leaves him ? Even if you can't be around, that'll be of great help.

I don’t want to be connected to her anymore but my mom keeps us together saying “bloods thicker than water” and other bullshit. I want to cut ties with her. She’s abusive and never says anything nice, highly critical of everything I do and say, and makes fun of me/gossips about me behind my back, spreads rumours, and likes to stir up drama… and she always says or does something mean when I’m doing something good for myself or have found success— she wants to constantly remind me of how much of a loser I am 24/7, bringing me back to reality. I can’t catch a break. She’s so highly competitive about everything and has to prove people that she’s the better sister, the better looking one, the more fashionable one, the smarter one, the better cook/baker, the more successful one— but who is she proving this to? I don’t care for this sibling rivalry. Why does she still do it? We’re adults now, not little children.
I don’t want to live near her. But I’m unfortunately connected to her for life.

he’s divorced and sort of a hermit so ig i had to know he had to get off somehow, but just thinking about my dad masturbating makes me feel grody. the only okay thing about it is that he probably doesnt watch real porn and just looks at naked women with natural bushes and stuff. i just dont know if i should feel bad or not about him looking at porn in general even if its (kind of) soft core.

Broke my top front artificial tooth yesterday by chomping down a piece of rib. It's still attached to my gum and don't ever plan on pulling it out without looking like a granny or crackhead lady even though I'm 22. I'm so devastated for that to happen and need to eat more carefully from now on. I know that the next thing I should do is to go to a dentist and fix it up plus my 3 cavities but then again we're still in a pandemic. Not only that but I'm jobless with no driver's license and low on money (living with family that's also struggling with money).

Since I'm always at home and everyone else is busy with work and errands I've been given the responsibility of taking my family's dog that has 3 tumors on her for more than 3 years to a veterinary cancer group for check up and chemotherapy that is 40 miles from where I live. I don't know the exact price for the procedures though definitely it must be pricey but I hate seeing my girl suffer for so long since most of my family aren't willing to take the step to help her since they have other responsibilities.
