2023.03.21 22:14 QuaintHabitatPurpose 28 [M4F] Arizona/Online - Let's be gentle & kind to each other (Romantic) [Profile for photos]

Warm Thoughtful Kind - How I'm most often described, well that & funny 😆
Let's be good & kind to each other - knowing the world isn't always the same.
A bit about me:
I have a really interesting project that's got the better of me the last year & now at my new place it's time to roll into phase two. As we get to know each other I'll be more comfortable with being more specific but for now I can say I'm in the entertainment industry.
Will be touring the shelters shortly looking for my Dusty or Chelsey - those were my dad's names for his dogs & I want to honor a small part of his memory by keeping the names. Love to have a small little pupper like he did, both of his were.
And so yes I lost my dad at a young age - I can share how privately - it was quite tragic - & being an only child it was just me & my mom & grandmother (Nan I was encouraged to call her). And so for me I was at their beck & call, their confidant, protector, & man of the house - despite being a tender age.
Being there in the unique way that I was taught me a lot about women & being a good man. I'm grateful for what I've learned & how I was made to mature abruptly as a child even if I'm not grateful for the cause.
What I'm looking for:
Reach out if you'd like to talk about how we can be gentle & kind to each other 🥰

2023.03.21 22:14 aldosebastian We all kind of just moved on

I still remember in 2020 that the then governor of NY would hold a parade for all health workers once the pandemic is over. Well that didn't happen.
I really feel we as a society didn't appreciate being able to get out of the pandemic tbh. Does anyone feel the same? Like we just moved on and complain about new things as if the pandemic never happened. I feel there should be some sort of celebration that we made it through, especially appreciation towards those in the front lines (like doctors nurses etc.), and also that it was never guaranteed that things will go back to the way it was pre 2020. Everytime I go out now I really appreciate being actually able to eat at a restaurant, talking to a stranger without a mask, seeing people's smile again without a mask; our freedom from this virus is really something we can't take for granted

2023.03.21 22:14 geckogeeked kinda corny idk

i don’t want the past to be erased or done over. which sounds bizarre but i appreciate the mindset and empathy it gave me so that i could be the person that i needed in the past for others.
i realized this when i was discharged out of a recovery facility and came home to be informed my step brother (22) was diagnosed with schizophrenia. This had been a life long problem for him but the symptoms had peaked, i felt like i lost my best friend, it seemed to have altered him. when i was unintentionally trying to save my step brother by informing my family on how to help him and suggest what action to take-he eventually got kicked out anyway (it had gotten too bad) then i relapsed and went back into rehab due to other circumstances).while i was in recovery i was told photos of him that i kept had been thrown away. it sent me into a depressive episode and i was petty about it. after finally opening up to my therapist about it she said that maybe i reacted like that because i was someone with mental health issues who wasn’t given a chance.
i did what i could and he’s much better today. in the end i allowed myself to see both perspectives. but i unintentionally put myself into his shoes with the trauma i had been through and psychology i had been taught to try to help out someone i cared for because no one was there to do that for me.

2023.03.21 22:14 r_cheeset [l] My not-family is falling apart and I don’t know what to do

Hi everybody. I just need to talk to someone and I'm panicking, so I’m here. Also i’m sorry if it’s really long. (english isn’t my first language, I’m sorry for my mistakes)
So I (15 F) live with parents, who split custody 50/50. A thing to know is that I had surgery at the end of 2021. I had a bone malformation in my foot. Nothing too bad but it could’ve caused problems when I would have been older. Because of an error from 3 doctors (specialized for adults), I had another surgery and now I’m here, limping, and on the list for another surgery.
Since then, I’ve seen two other doctors, specialized for kids/teens that are ready to operate me. But here’s the real problem: the waiting list is very long and my dad wants a private surgeon (he can afford it and can pay for it by himself if it’s needed), but my mum doesn’t want to pay for it. She says that she doesn't have this money, but she has just renovated her bathroom and almost every weekend she goes on “vacation” with her boyfriend. She also has a brother and a sister who are rich, and also my grandpa has some money (but apparently she won't ask them to help with money). I just got accepted to a stage in Great Britain, and I really can’t go if I'm like this. Also my school has a separate building for students from the 3° to the 5° year, and you can reach it by foot or by a little street and my mom can’t drive, so I can’t start my 3° year without the surgery done.
My dad decided that he'll pay for the surgery by himself if my mum would have given consent, but she said that she’s going to take me to the surgeon that has made all these mistakes (and maybe let him be my surgeon). Today was the final straw. My mum’s sister called my dad to say that he doesn't know anything (she’s a doctor) and that my doctor it’s the best. And this afternoon I’ve discovered many thighs from my stepmom: my mother has stolen lots of money from my dad (for example, if they pay for my things 50/50, for a thing that my mother bought she says the wrong price to have more money from him), that she had tons of affairs or boyfriends and then the one that made really shocked me. When I was 8/9, my dad had a stroke. He’s quite well now, but at the time he had been in a coma for one day I think, and while he was fighting for his life, my mum called my dad’s sister and asked if my dad had insurance.
My mom’s family thinks only about money and I can’t even look at my mother's face. (p.s.: her sister is telling everyone that the surgeons that my father called are the worst. One was the head of orthopedics at one of the most important child/teens hospitals in my country and the other also worked there)
Now my whole family is ready to fight against each other. My mother called me saying that she’ll never give the consent to the surgery and I think my dad is going to try to get my custody. I’m scared, but I also want to return walking as a normal person. I’m also afraid that social services are going to see this post somehow, but I really don’t know what to do, I’m panicking and I need some advice. I feel like my head is going to explode.
Thanks to everyone who’s going to say something

2023.03.21 22:13 Enchantinggal Live Better U Program

Hi all! I am an oregon college student looking to study business, and I have a few questions about the Live Better U program. I just learned that the Walmart Live Better U program has added Oregon State University to their list. OSU is my dream school to attend and I would love to learn more about the programs available. Graduating from college debt-free would be a dream. I have never worked at Walmart, but I have many years of retail experience. So, my questions are: 1) What programs are offered with the OSU school? 2) Are these programs available in person? 3) Is working at Walmart worth it for this program? Genuinely, what is working at Walmart like for you? What position would be the best starting position?

2023.03.21 22:13 flavorfulmango relationship advice needed

My boyfriend (M24) emotionally cheated on me (F20) last month. The girls he was cheating with came together and messaged me on instagram showing me screenshots of what he was saying and sending to them, basically a bunch of sexting and weird stuff.
I was sooo in love with my boyfriend that this absolutely crushed me. I didn't talk to him for a few days, but since this happened I forgave him. He wrote me a letter, brought me flowers, and is really doing everything possible to win me back. I know he loves me more than anything.
But this week at the gym, this attractive guy came up to me and got my number (M23). I already felt guilty giving it out, but I justified it because of what just happened with my boyfriend. But now we are planning on going on a date. I'm nervous because even though I don't know much about him, I feel like we have a lot of potential to really get along. The problem is, I'm still with my boyfriend. I didn't break up with him after he cheated on me because I wanted to give him another chance. But I haven't been able to stop thinking about what he said to the other girls, and now there's a new guy in the picture.
I have no idea what to do. I want to date this other guy and see what he's about because part of me is looking for someone who would never hurt me like my boyfriend did. But at the same time, I want to stay with my boyfriend because he's my first love and the only guy to truly go out of his way every single day to show me and tell me how much he cares about me. No one else has ever made me feel as cared for as him. But if I want to date this other guy, I need to break up with my boyfriend.
I don't want to break it off with my boyfriend because I'm so close with him and his family and he loves me more than anything, and he only emotionally cheated (to the best of my knowledge, but I believe him). But I want to give this other guy a chance. But what if this other guy doesn't end up loving me as much? I need to end things with my boyfriend before I go on this date because I don't want to be just as bad as my boyfriend and cheat on him. But I feel so stuck.
Any advice would be appreciated.

2023.03.21 22:13 Foxy_Noxy (TW)Was I raped, and what should I do about it?

A bit of a long post.
I (19F) started dating one of my good college friends (19M), let’s call him Zach, around two weeks ago. When he started dropping hints, I told him that I valued our friendship highly and that I’d be willing to give dating a try as long as we took it very very slow.
Zach has always been exceptionally kind and understanding, and in every way an amazing friend- until last Friday, 4 days ago.
Zach, I, and his roommate went to his roommates house and decided to get drunk (yes, I know underage drinking is a bad idea spare me the lecture I’ve learned my lesson). I couldn’t walk on my own, and had to be carried to bed. Zach is 3 times my size and at this point was maybe tipsy at best.
Anyways we’re in bed, we make out and he keeps telling me how horny he is. I told him something along the lines of “yeah me too but our first time should be sober, and special”, and he agreed with that but then suggested we could 69 because oral doesn’t count (??). So that’s what we did… and half way through I puked so we stopped and went to sleep.
I didn’t really feel bad about what happened, until he was telling people we “just made out” right in front of me, and didn’t once talk to me even in private about having literal oral sex. Later that day (Sunday I think) he asked if I remembered puking (which I did while sucking his dick, mind you) and I said yes because I did remember that. This is just pure speculation and probably me overthinking, but if I hadn’t remembered I wonder if we would’ve told me- this train of thought is when I started feeling a little scummy about what happened.
Last night I told him we should just go back to being friends, I told him it’s because I don’t feel anything when kissing him. Truth is I feel crappy about Friday, and that was the opposite of taking it slow.
So, was this rape, or do I just regret it? What can I do to feel better, and is it even worth talking to him about?

Hi so i’ve been playing xenoblade 1 the past few months and have been loving it, easily one of the best games ive ever played, and now i only really have one thing left, the time trial thats available after futures connected… I’ve only managed to beat it once where i got exactly 5 minutes… but other than that im mot really sure what the strategy is/where im going wrong? Since it feels like i could be going completely strong then the enemy completely destroys me in one hit lol. Would anybody be able to share an easier strategy with me to help secure the S-rank, im aware a lot of this may just be a skill issue on my part… Any help is great, thanks :>

2023.03.21 22:12 TiredTransLesbian Good monitor for a lower end PC (rx 550 GPU)

What monitor should I get for my lower end PC?
I wouldn't consider myself a PC gamer, and don't really plan on buying any upgrades. I've really just been living a few generations behind, salvaging parts from my family member's old rigs. After my brother moved out, he got a new laptop and left his desktop behind for me to use, but took his primary monitor, leaving me with just his secondary monitor that's really just a VERY old HP monitor we've had lying around for a while. It has a decent resolution of 1080p and a 60hz refresh rate, but it's main issue is the contrast. This monitor has got me by, but I really think it's a capable secondary monitor at best. The desktop was built almost a decade ago, but yesterday, I decided to upgrade the GPU to an rx 550 from my dad's old rig.
I've been using the PC a little more recently, and it's been very jarring, going from gaming on a 4k monitor when visiting my brother last week, to being back to my over a decade old HP monitor. I think a small upgrade is necessary, and I can use my current monitor as a secondary, as it's been annoying not having one.
I want to again state, I'm not a PC gamer, I mostly play on console, and only really use PC for a few older games, mostly Minecraft. I occasionally use it to emulate older consoles, but that's becoming less and less necessary as more emus are being ported to UWP so I can play them on my Xbox Series S, on my 4k tv. My brother does have a few games in his steam library that I might play if I can run them, but I doubt I'll be playing anything too intense on here at any point. Mainly, I just want to make sure I take full advantage of my current build, while not paying for more than I need. If I do ever actually get into PC gaming, I'll just buy another even better monitor and use the one I upgrade to right now as a secondary.
I'm not super familiar with the capabilities of my current GPU so I don't really know what resolution and refresh rate would be necessary. I should note that I prioritize frame rate over resolution, so if this card is capable of running anything at 1440p or higher, but sacrifices a consistent 60fps, then there's no reason to go any higher than 1080p. I'm working with a low budget of only around $100, but if I can benefit from anything higher than 1080p 60hz, then I'd be willing to save a little more.
I don't know what cpu is in this rig off the top of my head, all I can say is that it's probably one from around 2014-2015. If more information is needed, I can check.

No hookups. No sexting. Only men seeking genuine connections please!
I’m 5’8, average build, live in NY (Monroe county), am originally Canadian. I’m not afraid to travel or have my future partner travel if they’re comfortable with it.
I’m a homebody - which plays a part in my still being single 😅. I’m a pretty good cook, love road trips, exploring new restaurants and traveling in general. I am smart, loyal, respectful, and kind of funny, if I do say so myself.
I have no kids, but I do want them (2-4). I also hope to get married before having them.
I’m looking for a man who shares my values and family-oriented focus. Bonus if you’re keen to get married and gave children in the near future. Ideally you have your career settled and are looking for someone to share your life with. Ideally, you are willing to meet fairly soon!
I’m predominantly into tall men, with sleeve tattoos and nice arms 😌 green and brown eyes drive me absolutely Wild. I have a preference for white men, but don’t discriminate when it comes to dating. If we connect, great. Let’s see where it goes. I’m open to being friends with anyone, but would prefer to date a man 30-40 years old.
Selfies available on request.
If I sound like someone you’d like to get to know, send me a chat and let’s meet!

2023.03.21 22:12 supretsguaranteed Stubborn Knee Soreness - Fixes and Substitutions

By way of introduction, I’ve been running 5/3/1 for a couple years, but only started taking my training and nutrition seriously about a year ago. My PRs are 240 bench, 140 OHP, 235x4 squat, and 285x5 deadlift (deadlift is nowhere near a PR, I just like to leave more in the tank on deads as the risks from form breakdown are so high).
I have a history of back issues, so I deadlifted very infrequently up until maybe 3 or 4 months ago. Prior to this, I was generally running 5/3/1 3x week with no deadlifts and maybe an additional fun/prehab day on Saturday mornings.
Since adding them consistently, my knees have been wrecked. Adding them coincided with finally getting my squat up to a semi-respectable number, and I play a lot of basketball as well, so there are tons of factors here and I’m trying my best to isolate the cause.
I’ve stopped playing ball for the past month and switched from parallel squatting to full squatting with the intention of starting low and working my way back up. I had an unrelated back injury a month or so ago so I had to drop deadlifts again. Despite this, my knees are still killing me if I sit for too long - the pain gets much better with activity. It’s gotten to the point I’ve stopped running 5/3/1 for my lower body and am now doing light ATG squats (135 3x5) and machine work to try to rehab my knees, but minimal if any progress has been made.
Anyone with similar experiences have an idea what’s up / any suggestions as to how they handled it? It’s killing me not to be able to train lower body with any real intensity, and basketball was my main conditioning.

2023.03.21 22:12 MrGamePadMan Living as a human being, as a Christian..

….some of us just deal with our own personal challenges/personal battles/personal broken parts of our own self…
…while there are some Christian’s that seem to be “so fortunate” enough to live everyday as if they’re winning the spiritual lottery and think those that aren’t like them, that it’s just a quick course correction to be like them…that’s just not how it goes…
…as a Christian, if I didn’t have the hope that Christ gave to this fallen world, I’d be in a pool of my own blood many years ago…knowing life is miserable/I’m miserable and there’s no hopeful future to hold on to…
Maybe I’m just…broken in my own personal ways, that, my life as a Christian, it’s difficult to stay consistently close with the God who adopted me. I can honestly admit, my walk with God, my Father…has its ebbs and flows, mostly valley’s…and short seasons of spurts that I am “strong” in my faith, clinging onto Him with a full heart.
It’s just…being human…we feel things. Broken feelings. Feelings of depression, miserableness and sometimes even despair. It’s not a fun time.
We also don’t make the best choices, so sometimes we reap what we sow. I’m a fool. And I eat my own consequential misery. It’s bitterness in my bones.
I can’t explain why I struggle and fail in the things I do, but I have always been a pendelum swing. I can predict some may think there’s something fundamentally “wrong” with my life at this point and may think a Christian cannot be like this…
…I will not fall for those opinions. I know Jesus. I have the light of life. It’s why I’ve made it this far. Don’t judge me like so, just because you’ve listened to me lament. In this life, there is trouble, Jesus reminded us. Sometimes it’s brought upon us by others, and sometimes by our own doing.
I know Jesus was called “Man of Sorrows” in Isaiah. He knows what we experience as human beings. He knows grief. He knows loneliness. He knows rejection. He knows depression. He knows pain. He was human after all, yet without sin.
I know the bible says, we must “suffer for a little while,” which is what we go through in this current fallen world…
…but man, what a burden. And yes, we feel burdens. Peter said we should lay it on God, so we experience our own personal burdens and this post is just a glimpse into the multi-dimensional complexity that is: me.
Sometimes I just…do nothing. I just feel blank about it. And that doesn’t serve my spirit well. Just being completely honest.
Sigh. Life is a burden. Just stating the truth. I know it’s temporary. I just hope God has compassion for my foolishness.

2023.03.21 22:12 jordanoia Barely Survived MIL's Last Visit - Potentially Visiting Again

Just looking to vent a little and also hoping for some advice for a future visit.
My MIL lives in another country but came to visit for about a month and a half during summer of last year. It was honestly one of the most stressful periods of my life - we are very different people on a personal and cultural level.
Some examples of her behaviour: - She had some decorations that we kept for her when she used to live in this country that she pulled out of old storage boxes and started decorating our house with them (think old 70's floral table cloths) - DH asked her to put them away
- We had just recently moved into a new home and without our consent hired a locksmith to change all our locks, though she missed the garage lock and we don't know where that key is now
- We had new bathroom fixtures we were pending to install on our own, without our consent she hired a handyman to enter our home and do it instead
- She would try to do our laundry and entered our bedroom without consent
- She is a super consumer and would buy new groceries / throw away groceries that were still good; wouldn't use the organics disposal and threw organics in the trash - this eventually attracted mice
- She and DH do not have a great relationship so most days it was a tense atmosphere as they often argued with each other - she was here for a month and a half and they had 2 outright screaming matches
All this to say, I tried to really tough it out but it wasn't easy; eventually the week before she was set to leave we had the watermelon incident. Due to her constant grocery shopping we were out of space in the fridge, so a watermelon had been sitting in the sink for two days - that evening I decided let's just cut up this watermelon because it can't just be in the sink. I went to cut the watermelon and MIL was hovering over me, I said I was going to slice it horizontally and she said no that's wrong, so I said OK I'll slice it vertically and she said no that's also wrong. At this point I was very annoyed (there had been some incidents earlier in the day that were putting me at my limit) and I just placed the knife on the cutting board and said, "OK you cut it" and I walked away.
I did this because I knew that if I stayed I would have argued and I just wanted to avoid a conflict, but apparently she'd seen the look on my face and all hell broke loose. She started screaming at me and DH about everything she was unhappy about in regards to living with us and then stormed off to live the rest of her time with her sisters. I almost had a mental breakdown that night due to the stress that I'd insulted her so deeply (in our culture respect to parental units is really important) and the next day I got my period early which was a blow as DH and I had been trying with difficulty to conceive.
In the end it all blew over and I apologized to her to keep the peace, we gave each other a hug and she went on her way back home.
Now - onto this year; I am pregnant and about to give birth to our first LO and DH has informed me that FIL and MIL are planning on visiting - which means they will be staying in our home with us. As soon as the words left DH's mouth I felt a wave on anxiety hit me. Culturally it's impossible for us to tell them they can't stay with us as well as the fact that FIL has an illness which means he might not be with us much longer, I don't want to deny DH that time with his dad.
As much as this was a rant, I also want to know about any advice anyone could give me in terms of trying to set boundaries with MIL's from eastern cultures. What's the best approach? I feel like any kind of boundary might be seen as an insult and I fear another screaming meltdown especially with LO in the house.
