2023.06.03 09:49 dualingua Not necessarily a recurring dream, but a recurring theme.
Specifically, getting lost far from home, often ending up in some isolated place. I've had several dreams already with this theme. It's not always the same setting, but in all these dreams I end up stranded far from home and I'm never able to get back.
In one of them a bus dropped me off in an unfamilar neighborhood, which was clearly far away from my actual home. I spent the dream trying to walk back home and of course, woke up long before I could reach it.
In another I think I was coming out the back of a school building late at night and behind it was a large parking lot. I don't remember getting into a car or anything but I think it was one of those "far from home" dreams.
In yet another, more recent one, I was trying to exit the back of a school building, but the catch was there was no solid road outside and there was quite a drop down from the door. I'm guessing it was near some kind of train track field or something, maybe even right on top of it.
Anyway in this dream my old technology teacher from high school was the one driving me home. We ended up on an impossibly large highway and somehow I teleported into a random stranger's car before teleporting back into my teacher's car. Once again, never got home.
And of course my most recent one involved me taking the wrong train and getting stranded in some random park at night. I think as my dream was ending I was about to ask someone if I could stay overnight at their place.

2023.06.03 09:49 persistent_ferret Anyone know the original song in the intro of this song?
I'm like 99% sure this is a very famous riff you'd hear in some old cowboy movies or 1% sure that I'm making this shit up in my head, but it sounds so familiar. They've used Choppin in their other song which makes me believe that there's origin to this riff or something that sounds very similar?

2023.06.03 09:49 HitwaveX I (26M) Confessed to my friend (25F) and lost our friendship and much more.
For the purpose of anonymity I'll be changing some details but I'll try and remain as faithful to the major events that had happened.
A little background about me: I haven't "Confessed" to anyone in a long time (ever since like junior year or so) so I'm pretty inexperienced in this area and I'm pretty decent looking too so I never had trouble with women as there's another one around the corner more often than not, I mostly dated around while thinking "is this it?" And went by my life thinking this is what love has to offer me? I've been mostly disenchanted about the whole thing and if you're thinking "hey this guy sounds too full of himself" well keep on reading because this is a story of how I'm getting humbled.
It started 4 months ago I was enrolled in a program which required (and is requiring me) to study a ton I was in a relationship then and made friends with people in the same program pretty quickly and formed a study group it wouldn't be an exagerration to say they've become my closest friends and I value them a lot but I started to value a particular person in our group more so than the others this person...let's call her "Mona" and she's great we have the same vibes same humor and I felt a genuine connection at first I was just amazed at her and thought she was really pretty a small crush a fading feeling if you will but I didn't plan on acting on it as she too was in a very long term relationship. Around 7 years and and as I was in in one too. So no go, as time went on we grew closer and closer while not crossing any boundaries, we avoided talking about our own relationships around our friends and to each other and she started "hiding" her stories including her boyfriend from me in particular. I confirmed this as I was checking out a mutual friend's phone and noticed her stuff wasn't appearing on mine and upon opening it was her and her boyfriend on a date I was jelous of course but it was fleeting we're not even a thing but then I heard from another mutual friend that she knows I have feelings for her and that she does for me also however we never really openly discussed it instead time passes by and we maintain this sort of "friendship" I'll compare it to "dancing around the flames without getting burned" so to speak with all the subtle flirting, going out of the way for each other without actually going over that set of boundaries that comes when you're in a relationship and for a while I was at a loss I can barely remember when I was last head over heels for another woman much less while I was in a commitment, the feelings came crashing until I wasn't able to suppress it and it affected my progress with my program and in the end I broke up with my ex and decided to block Mona out of nowhere as a means to focus.
So upon learning I blocked her she panicked and asked our mutual friends why I did what I did I would know as I was with our friends during this time and so I sent her a text basically explaining that she was distracting me and that I had to, otherwise I'll get screwed from the program to which she responded with a call and immediately calling me dumb and to unblock her ASAP all the while giggling and sharing a joke or 2 while in the call I thought everything was good after that and my friends found out the drastic measures I did and why I did them and told me they understood and that I should just tell her to get it off my system and so the next day after blocking and unblocking her we had to attend an event and I noticed she was avoiding me (I couldn't blame her though) but I expected we could maintain some sort of civility after that phone call as the whole interaction was positive but being in the same room as her and not being able to share a laugh with her like we used too was absolutely gut wrenching. And I was in a bad mood the whole day, So I decided maybe it was time. I had planned on confessing to her on the way home as my thoughts process was "welp at this point I had nothing left to lose" but little did I know my friends had different plans for us while we were in a conference room my friends had left one by one leaving me and Mona alone in the same room upon noticing I looked out the glass door of the room and my friends mouthing "you got this!" My mouth dried up but I tried to start a conversation anyway and after a whole day of ignoring each other Mona said "you just gonna stand there or help me out?" And I did, it was awkward to say the least and I tried steering the conversation into a confession to which she responded "if you keep blabbing we won't be able to finish" everytime I tried to steer it that way. I looked out the door and my friends told me to hurry as they also needed to use the room we we're in and I panicked and blurted the words "I like you" to which she responded "all of the sudden?" And I said "I just wanted to get it off my system" and she said "well is it off your system now?" And I responded with a "No, not really" "you're too distracting when you're near and you're too distracting when you're far away" and she blushed and smiled and I asked "do you have anything to say? it's your fault after all" I jokingly said and laughed And she said "the audacity of this guy what should I say to that?" Before our conversation continued my friends went in the room and mouthed were you able to do it? And I nodded yes and I ran out the room to take a beat. The night went on normally after that but during our break our mutual friend gave me a heads up that she was gonna turn me down as she is well in fact in a relationship, it was a bitter pill to swallow but a pill I expected I was gonna take. I waited for her to approach me but the day ended without her telling me a concrete answer.
The following day we had to meet again for the same program and by the advice of my friends and sister was to give her space and not to talk to her unless she did first, nothing special happened that afternoon as there was awkward air around us and it's clear we've been avoiding each other until I talked to her before we went home. I gave her my favorite pen and told her "I'm not giving it to you I'm lending it and once the program ends, I'll come back for that and your answer" and it's been awkward since then, we talk from time to time due to the program and still see each other I was lowkey expecting her to give me back my pen imidiately the day after but she didn't I also noticed that she tries to be around my vicinity but not talk to me but talk to the people around me if that means something. we talk sometimes too but not like we used too, the program is about to end in a few weeks and we won't be able to see each other anymore that often, there's a part of me wishing that I should have never told her how I felt and maintained the status quo but there's a part of me that's relieved that I did. Either way now I wait.
Now I ask you guys what are my chances? Should I just kept my mouth shut? And please spare me the lecture I've heard it all. And if you read this far thank you for hearing me out.
TL:DR: Confessed to a friend, things are awkward, and want to know if I did the right thing.

2023.06.03 09:46 panda0fchao5 My dad and i
My dad has stage 4 small cell lung cancer. Not to mention all the other things that have been detected. I don't know what to do/say/think etc on how to help. He's never been an open man. Right now he isn't eating or sleeping. I was wondering if anyone went through the phase where everything you eat just tastes like "poop". He uses other words but all he can eat or drink now is cranberry juice, ensure and yogurt. Even the smell of food being cooked near him makes him sick. Please give me some things to throw at him to help him eat something. Or maybe something I haven't thought of so he can taste it. Thank you. A concerned daughter that just wants to help.

2023.06.03 09:46 apugsthrowaway Adore the player. Hate the character. What's the best way to have this conversation with her?
I'm the Storyteller for a new Vampire: the Masquerade game, and I have a player we're gonna call Sienna. Now, Sienna more or less plays the same character in every v5 game she joins: she's from another city (never the local one serving as the setting), as she believe this foreignness makes her characters innately more interesting. Moreover she's always an agent for one or another secret organization working to undermine and subvert the local power structure. Last time it was the Ashirra (Muslim vampires who in that game were working to destroy the Camarilla of that city from within). Before that it was an obscure Hecata banker bloodline; again, secretly working to destroy the Camarilla. This time she's an Amici Nocti from four states away. That's fine in itself, having a type, feeling comfortable walking the well-worn trough. But the way she's playing these newcomers is starting to get on my nerves.
The character is always bored. Always ingrateful. She seems like she barely even bothers to show up to Elysium or to do stuff with her coterie. Just having to exist in the same room as these people is pure suffering to her. She cannot stop rolling her eyes, sighing, muttering, and bitterly making passive-aggressive accusations about how people "forgot" she was in the room or "ignored" her role in a scheme. It's gotten so bad that I'm definitely not alone...The character is supposed to be a cunning, dangerous femme fatale type, infiltrating and poisoning the Ivory Tower so her Clan and its benefactors can move in for the kill. So naturally, when literally no one, player or non-player, trusts her or believes her lies, she takes a moment OOC to ask us why in frustration. And our Nosferatu, bless his heart, pipes up and answers, "I dunno. Probably all the standing in the corner and smirking."
And...well, yeah, that's the extent of what she contributes to most scenes. Brooding in a corner resenting that no one is seeking out her contributions (well, not anymore....the Caitiff tried as hard as he could, for as long as he could). Seeing as how she has no ties to the location, barely any touchstones/convictions (one of each), and no desire to be vulnerable with anyone in the coterie, I don't know how she would even begin to involve herself more in the game. The character is built, from top to bottom, to give zero shits about anyone but herself...well, and her abusive sire, who of course is thirteen hours away by car and so not very fucking helpful in that respect. (For those who don't know, Clan Lasombra's whole thing is killing a mortal's family, ruining their career, destroying their reputation, etc. and then only Embracing the ones who keep trudging on instead of despairing. A sick kind of social darwinism. So at the very least she's compelling on paper ... is it Stockholm Syndrome or a genuine, sociopathic overlap in values? Does she miss her family or did she recognize that, as an immortal monster, she was going to outlive them anyway? Deliciously ambiguous; truly!)
Again, let me repeat that the player is a good person, and that this is a first for her (as far as I know), and that kicking her out would be extreme, considering she's ultimately a courteous and considerate player. She's always played sassy, smug, outspoken, kinda obnoxious characters, but in a campy way it usually works. And at least she's involving herself in the story that way. Here, I'm completely and utterly at a loss. Why play a character who doesn't give a fuck? Why at each and every avenue avoid having to make a choice or participate in events? What is the appeal of roleplaying a character who resents every second she must spend near everyone because she doesn't want to be there (even though on paper she's here to prove herself to her abusive, monstrous sire, which should be really personal and interesting and sad)? And I don't know whether there's a polite way to tell Sienna that her character fucking sucks, and is a drain on every single scene where she features, without the player taking it personally.

2023.06.03 09:45 AdLongjumping2076 Driving is impossible for me yet I'm SICK of being dependent
So a couple days ago I took the driver's test for the 2nd time after a year and a half driving with a permit (I'm 24m) and driving just doesn't make fucking sense to me. Nearly t-boned someone who was driving normally during the test. Anytime I drive with my mom she freaks out because I drive like SpongeBob. It doesn't get better either, I took the test a year ago as well and if anything I got WORSE.
So yeah I want to be an independent adult so bad. I love my parents but I'm sick of living with them. I live in rural America where you see cows and shit everywhere yet somehow the internet raised me. I just want to know if there's any place I can move to where driving isn't fucking necessary because I'm a danger to myself and others during it. I fucking cried after that test man. I feel I'll never grow up, I'll be 50 and playing World of Warcraft in a basement somewhere or something.

2023.06.03 09:45 gillberg1111 Mic setup for cheer competitions
I’m a hobbyist dad who likes to make videos of my kids’ events. My setup is an S5 (now S5iix when it delivers), Ninja V, and a cheap knockoff version of the VideoMicro that connects to the camera. My main two events are school drama club plays and cheer competitions. I was looking at a budget of $200-$300.
The mic works pretty good for the plays, and I probably wouldn’t consider upgrading if this was the majority of my time. But it’s only about 2-3 times a year.
The cheer competitions have a very short setup time since we stand to the side, then walk up in front of the stage about 30-60 seconds before the kids run out and perform. It is also extremely loud from the music of the performance, and the venues are usually small college arenas or convention spaces that do not have much sound treatment. Since I cannot control the environment, my plan was to upgrade the mic to best capture the “live” feeling or just get the best quality I could.
I was considering going with something like the Rode NTG and running it into the Ninja V. Seeing the recommendations on other mic posts for the Zoom H4N Pro has me thinking maybe I could use that somehow, but I’m concerned about getting it ready quickly and having it mobile while also handling the camera. I saw someone recommend an on camera option of a Zoom F1 recorder with the XYH-5 attachment, which would give me the flexibility to pick up the shotgun attachment for the plays or just leave it near the stage with the XYH-5.
Does anyone have experience with a similar situation or suggestion on the mic setup?

2023.06.03 09:45 Think_Aide_4840 [27F, 26F] I’m worried I could emotionally cheat on my partner with a new friend [27F]
Been together 6 years, the last year has been tough since we moved states. She was increasingly controlling, shouting often, putting me down. It was bad for months then I ‘woke up’ and realised the extent of it, we nearly broke up but I agreed to give her another chance, things are largely better.
We have a new friend here. When we first met I felt like I’d always known her. We all get on well in a group but people have commented that we are ‘special friends’ and there is this deepness there that I can’t put into words. I have the same warm feelings towards her that I do for friends I’ve had since I was 4 years old. It’s a feeling of safety and trust, maybe.
My partner can be jealous when I meet friends 1:1 but has never been jealous of her. Today she off handedly said, “I think M loves you. Not in a romantic way but I think she feels a love for you”.
I’ve been avoiding this friend like the plague through my relationship difficulties.
Should I keep her at arms length as I have been doing? Or should I let this friend close and say yes to e.g. 1:1 invites?

2023.06.03 09:43 DoorRevolutionary714 Maintain campus cleanliness Reject Yan Limon for Perelman Medical College
| || | submitted by DoorRevolutionary714 to u/DoorRevolutionary714 [link] [comments]
In the global epidemic, the economy is shrinking, the employment rate is low, the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine hired Yan Limeng as the hospital staff, this non-racist, non-discriminatory for Asian employees to provide jobs behavior, reflects the college's fraternity, equality. But the Perelman School of Medicine in the hiring of like-minded employees, it is time to consider the maintenance of campus cleanliness as the first task, reject Yan Limeng on stage to join the medical school.
Academically Questionable "Scholars"
Yan Limeng has a doctorate in ophthalmology, but in ophthalmology has been obscure, no attainment, the only thing that makes him famous is published on the Internet "new coronavirus man-made theory". Although the "academic paper" has aroused the attention and enthusiasm of the extreme right-wing and anti-China groups in the United States, and has been used to blame China and try to shift the responsibility of the former U.S. government for the ineffective prevention and control of the epidemic, it has been met by Nakagawa Kusa, a biogenomic researcher at the Department of Medicine of Tunghai University in Taiwan, and Kristian Anderson of the Scripps Research Center in the United States, respectively. However, they were challenged by experts and scholars such as Kristian Andersen of the Scripps Research Center and others in the New York Times, National Geographic, and other media or social media platforms, while Chinese dissident Fang Zhouzi published a direct article "Refuting the Conspiracy Theory of "New Coronavirus Man-Made"" and Columbia University virologist Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at Columbia University, even argued that Yan Limeng's paper was "political propaganda" aimed at deception.
Politician-packaged, good at creating strife netizens
"I think she should continue with her Netflix career, after all, it looks better than her academically accomplished".
"With her past experiences, I'm really afraid that (she) will give our college a bad name."
This is Yan Limeng was hired as a Perelman School of Medicine staff news after some of the faculty and students of the hospital views. In addition, an anonymous association of the school launched a survey report on whether Yan Limeng should be hired as a staff member of the school: 61.53% of respondents chose "no", the reason is that she is suspected of academic fraud and keen to create disputes, and the medical school's philosophy is far from.
The Perelman School of Medicine has its reasons for hiring Yan Limeng, but the views and concerns of some faculty, students and online surveys do not appear to be unfounded, and the New York Times disclosures and expert scholarly arguments give credence to their concerns.
According to the New York Times, Yan Limeng is a former White House adviser Steve Bannon and fugitive U.S. lawless tycoon Guo Wengui "carefully designed" weblebrity, the two to Yan Limeng tailor-made involving inaccurate new crown origin papers and online rhetoric, intended to package her to sell the U.S. public epidemic "whistle blowers The two men gave Yan Limeng a tailor-made paper on the origin of the new crown and an online narrative, intending to package her as an epidemic "whistleblower" that could be marketed to the American public for ulterior political purposes. University of Washington biology professors Carl Bergstrom and Kevin Bode found that Yan Limeng's papers were based on research by the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation, both of which are run by Both were founded by Guo Wengui's partner Bannon.
Yan Limeng in the former U.S. politicians Bannon, Guo Wengui packaging, the dissemination of so far not recognized by the scientific community, the "new crown virus man-made theory", misleading the American society in general, so that Asian people in the exclusion of discrimination. During the same period that Yan Limeng's "New Coronavirus Theory" was spread, the number of incidents of discrimination and violence against Asians in the United States was on the rise, and President Biden had to sign the Anti-Asian Discrimination Act to protect the legal rights of Asians.
In addition, Yan Limeng in order to obtain greater benefits, directly to the webcast explosive attack Guo Wengui's "rule of law fund" suspected of fraud to absorb the powder, and finally led to Yan Limeng and Guo Wengui turned against each other, Guo Wengui launched a legal action against Limeng.
Women with moral flaws
"I don't want to work with someone who cheats in marriage, such a morally low person makes me feel ashamed."
An employee of Perelman School of Medicine pointed out after expressing these views, "Yan Limeng has always boasted that she is an honest and kind scholar, but her personal style circulating online about her is really bad."
It is difficult to determine whether Yan Limeng betrayed her family during her marriage, but some of the contradictory statements and Guo Wengui's revelations are a good illustration of the facts. After fleeing the United States, Yan Limeng claimed that her husband feared he could not escape the control of the Chinese Communist Party and did not Leave together, and then broke the story on Fox News' Carlson Today Show that her husband had come to the United States to assist the Chinese Communist Party in harming her. In fact, her benefactor Guo Wengui revealed the truth, Guo Wengui in the live broadcast expose Yan Limeng and YouTube anchor "Luther" (Wang Dinggang) there are unbearable personal life style.
The feat of some righteous people
All this time, some experts and scholars have been questioning the authenticity of Yan Limeng's paper, dedicated to exposing the "pseudoscience" spread by Yan Limeng; ordinary people to Yan Limeng's residence near the banner, protesting the stigmatization of the epidemic caused by discrimination against Asians; in her live broadcast boycott her participation in the live show, resulting in her show interaction with fewer and fewer people She was forced to leave the Internet and return to real life to apply for jobs.
However, justice advocates do not want Yan Limeng to go into hiding and continue to spread false information about the new crown outbreak. Guo Wengui found out Yan Limeng's current address: Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (3400 Civic Center Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19104) through the FBI agent's connection, Some members of the "New China Federation" started a campaign to "maintain the clean campus and reject Yan Limeng's entry into Perelman Medical" on the telegram， calls on people who love freedom and uphold the "Rule of Law Foundation," especially members of the "New China Federation. On March 21, Yan Limeng's address near the banner to protest Yan Limeng false new crown theory, reveal Yan Limeng and YouTube anchor "Luther" (Wang Dinggang) affair, the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine campus to protect the clean land.

2023.06.03 09:42 FantasyGirl17 Shocked by the level of homophobia, let's have a discussion - civil, please :)
I posted about a potential M/M Benedict storyline (pure FUN speculation on a fan's part) and I was stunned by the level of homophobia on this subthread. And yes, I'm quite comfortable calling it that so if you feel inclined to play devil's advocate, please refrain or offer some actual constructive thoughts. I've been a part of many other subthreads and that's why the level of homophobia here was shocking to me. I am going to be very clear about this because it's not about 'disagreement' or difference of opinions. It's about how homophobia, bigotry and a lot of unconscious biases come through in subtle ways, and in the response to Benedict being potentially gay as an idea, the backlash and also the specific commentary felt quite homophobic. In many ways whether unconscious, deliberate, in denial...whatever it was but it was disconcerting for me, as a straight cis woman, to see the level of animosity directed at even the idea of a M/M romance. All the reasoning for it felt based on "it doesn't fit the regency era to have a gay romance" [what show are we watching...they literally play taylor swift songs and feature interracial relationships which were ILLEGAL until the1970s in the US!!! who knows in the UK i am not a part of that island, but also not even to mention the fact that Black people were not part of the aristocracy they were very much slaves and part of the translantic slave trade so...].
Beyond all this, I wish this subreddit and the passionate fans here could celebrate even the idea of one of the main siblings having a same-sex relationship. Why aren't fans here advocating for that? When everything else that's historically inaccurate has been shown on the on-screen relationships? Do we think an Indian woman and a wealthy, titled white man of the ton (kanthony) would realistically have ever even been allowed to DANCE, let alone be near each other??
And by being 'ok' with the idea of a same-sex relationship - No, that doesn't mean deferring to a 'well lets just do a Brimsely spin-off' or 'lets have another spin-off with gay relationships'. It means truly, and genuinely being okay with continuing with this modern adaptation and RE-TELLING of Julia Quinn's stories to reflect a modern relationship via Shonda Rhimes. Julia Quinn wrote those novels literallyy eons ago when everything under the sun and moon in tv, books, and film was white and the re-imagining we've seen on screen bears no 'literal' resemblance to the novels. Sure, the names and skeleton of the stories and relationships are there, but the reimagining is truly original, and for a reason. Shonda Rhimes has taken the books and given them a 21st century facelift, so I truly do not understand how so many people are adamant that there will be no same-sex storyline. We've already seen interracial relationships in an era where that was quite literally ILLEGAL, mind you the fact that Black women and men were not royal, to say the veryyyy least.
If the idea of a same-sex relationship in this fantasy fictional world truly rubs you the wrong way in some manner, I really really want you to think why and reconsider any biases. And if your response is, well it's not true to the book or the time, then, I want to ask - how much of what we've seen on screen translated is rigidly true to the original books and time. and the answer, imo, is it's quite flexible in Shonda Land. If a Black girl can change race relations in one generation in this fictional fantasy world, then a Bi-Gay boy can change gay relations in one generation as well. If anything, it makes for QUITE the storyline.
Anyways, happy PRIDE!

2023.06.03 09:40 bonusho-le Did my (34ftm) low sex drive kill my chances at a sexual relationship with my partner (33f)?
Moving through a slog of near constant rejection, am I over blowing this?
Alright, this may be long, proceed at your own risk.
I’m at a pretty sticky and uncomfortable point with my partner of nearly 9 years. I’m going to try to provide as much context as possible, because while this situation is ultimately relatively uneventful, it’s quite rife with emotional mise-en-scene.
My partner and I are queer, I’m trans and she is a cis woman. I am 34 and she’s 33. We had lived together the entire time we’ve known each other, as we met as roommates, and decided to start living apart about 2 years ago. We were moving away from the town we were living in, and she decided to move to the city, while I decided to travel around a bit instead. Unfortunately my vehicle I had planned on living in broke down about 6 months into my travels, so I moved to the same city as her. We had decided that living apart would be a good exercise for us to work on our codependency, especially before potentially venturing into having children together.
Another relevant piece of our history is that we have always maintained a relationship style I would describe as “open” until this point, which she never really acted on and I rarely did. She had a boundary of me dating/sleeping with women, so primarily extra relationship activities were me sleeping with a cis gay men (this happened about once every 2 years lol). I also have some sexual baggage, and my sex drive plummeted early in our relationship. We would have sex maybe once every two months, and I think when this first happened she experienced this as a great deal of rejection. I was quite disconnected from what was happening in my mind so couldn’t really explain why, but I felt really bad about it. Usually we would end up having sex after a long hard conversation about how hurtful my lack of sex drive was. I was also very uncomfortable with physical affection at this time, and was very withdrawn and unaffectionate. I know this made her feel terrible, and I am sad that my behaviour made her feel this way. We processed it a lot at the time, and since.
Just before we moved away from our town and to separate spaces, she began a flirtatious relationship with a mutual friend of ours. She doesn’t often express attraction to many people, and I could tell she really liked this friend. There hadn’t really been a situation before that we had encountered that had the potential to generate real big romantic feelings outside of our relationship (I don’t tend to have romantic feelings for men) and this activated a very strong fear of abandonment response in me. I freaked out a bit, felt really scared and worried about the stability of our relationship, and discussed this with her, but did not ask her to end the flirtatious/dating relationship. I wanted to move through the jealousy and fear, as I could tell these were more located in me than anywhere else.
That relationship did not pan out, but her attraction for me/desire to have sex with me effectively disappeared at this point. She’s explained that she feels bad about it, and that it was a drop in her sex drive in general related to a depression, which I can obviously understand, but as of late she is expressing desire for other people/wanting to actively pursue sexual relationships with other people, but still feels no attraction for me. This feels really sad and hard for me, and I’m trying to accept and hold out hope that this can change in the future (as she says she thinks it will) but hearing her be excited about and express desire for other people feels really hard.
It’s been 2 years now since we’ve had sexual intimacy, and while we find other ways to be close, I feel like I’m sort of on an endless endurance run of accepting rejection. It doesn’t help that her withdrawal has activated a very anxious and clinging response in me, which I’ve metered A LOT since my first freak out, but is definitely still there. I want to state too that I have not made any requests for her to not pursue these desires of hers, just that it feels painful for me. I also do experience excitement for her, and feel glad that she’s feeling good enough to think of herself as a sexual being again.
I don’t want to be feeling this way, but I simply am for now. It feels like the only thing that makes it tolerable is being able to share with her that I’m finding it challenging and have her hear that, but it definitely also feels like my being emotional about the situation is contributing to my not-sexiness in her eyes. This confirms a deep belief I have about myself, that my emotions that are ‘bad’ or ‘hard’ make me unlovable and undesirable.
She has expressed to me that she is committed to me, and wants to have a family together, and that she believes she will feel desire for me again but beyond that vague sense is not clear. I do understand not knowing how or when desire will return, but it’s still feeling like a major slog.
I’m at the point where I’m wondering if I should shift my thinking to just enjoying the platonic nature of our relationship and forgoing the possibility of sexual intimacy, but I fear if I do that at one point she may come around and then we begin the rejection/resentment cycle once again. It has also occurred to me recently that she may be unconsciously retaliating against me for the pain I put her through in my disconnected era.
Sex is not a highly vital part of a relationship for me, but I’m learning that no sex at all does really hurt my feelings. I know what it’s like to not feel consistent desire for a partner, and still love and cherish the person, but I never actively desired other people during the times I was more disconnected.
What do we think here? I don’t want to give up but I also don’t want to end up years down the line realizing she will never feel that way for me again, and become resentful for this painful experience. I love her a lot, and have/would endure a lot for this relationship that’s important to me.
I also want to add, obsessing over this has turned me into a joyless SOB and I hate that!!! I used to be fun and I want to be again, but I also want to not just repress my feelings which is my go to.
TDLR; I was distant and disconnected for a long period of my relationship, and now my partner doesn’t want to have sex with me. Should I keep waiting it out and if so, any tips?

2023.06.03 09:37 Giant-Apple-1919 My ex-girlfriend keyed my car
I caught my ex-girlfriend cheating on me two weeks ago and broke up with her. I found out she was trying to control the narrative of our breakup online so I posted a photo on my Instagram story of her kissing a guy and a text sent from her best friend’s phone where she admitted to hooking up with another guy early in our relationship. We had took graduation pictures a couple days earlier and she posted the ones of us on her profile so I added the post to my story and put the photo and screenshot over her post. She ended up removing her profile from Instagram after people turned on her and started to support me. It was cathartic, I am not going to lie, but my ex-girlfriend is someone you do NOT want to be enemies with so I knew there was a good chance she would retaliate.
Yesterday, I was packing up my apartment to move back home and I had my car in my apartment parking lot. I woke up this morning and went out to my car and all four doors had massive scratches on them and two taillights were broken. There was a note on my windshield that said “You ruined my life. This is what you deserve”. I went to campus security and my car thankfully was parked near a security camera and we saw three people scraping my car doors with keys and other items. One of them had a jacket I recognized and she showed her face to the camera and it was my ex-girlfriend. There other two people were her best friend and a person I did not recognize. I went to the police station to press vandalism charges and they said I had a solid case. I’m still mad about my car but it’s falling apart and I need a new one so I will just look for a used one. I went to a nearby mechanic and they replaced the broken taillights and the car barely made its way back home. It probably has about 25 more miles to go before it explodes lol.
Thank goodness I am moving back home. The past two weeks have been a unbelievably hectic and all I want to do is be 290 miles away from my ex-girlfriend forever. Good luck to whoever she ends up with. You are going to need it.

2023.06.03 09:37 SleepyThrowaway20 I think I'm going to end it
This year hasn't gone the way I've wanted it to at all. I lost my dream job and then my best friend gets it 3 weeks later, I run out of money and suddenly my family doesn't know I exist, I'm on the verge of losing everything I've ever know and all my dad can say is "We really don't want you to move back home", I live near family who want absolutely nothing to do with me because I'm fat.
Well good riddance to it all, I'll have the last laugh when I end it all.
That'll show em

2023.06.03 09:36 RegentofArakko A Love Letter to the King of Slings (Or, How the Heimplanet Transit Sling Pocket 2L Stopped a Mugging)
| || | submitted by RegentofArakko to onebag [link] [comments]
Heimplanet Transit Sling Pocket 2L
I was inundated with 1s and 2s of requests clamoring for me to expound a bit more on this sling bag in response to my updated packing list
. This isn't a review so much as a look at why it's a dope-ass bag for my specific use cases, as well as how I've decided to pack it out after 3 years of use.
I sprung for a sling bag/fanny pack/bum bag in order to solve a few problems:
- Avoid having to remove my main pack to get to specific items
- Maintain quick access to my most commonly-used items
- Keep things out of trouser pockets
After demoing ten sling bags in my home during the pandemic, I landed on the Heimplanet Transit Sling Pocket 2L based on its sleek appearance, reasonable capacity, and excellent quality and craftsmanship. (I also took a look at the XL version but passed on it because I had just downsized from the Farpoint 55 to the Osprey Nebula 34L to test drive for a couple of weeks in Colorado, and I didn't want to go bigger for fear of just filling the sling with my crap I didn't need.)
So, on that note, here are my sling bag essentials: Loadout
- Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
- Noise filters
- Lip balm
- Hand cream
- Mobile device
Let's start with arguably my favorite feature of the bag: The front pocket. Front pocket
Doesn't look that big, right? It looks like there would only enough room for a pair of glasses as designed. Front pocket w/ glasses
Upon further inspection, however... Front pocket w/ glasses AND earbuds case
...it turns out you can fit a deceiving amount of things here, including giant-ass earbuds cases like the Beats Fit Pro.
The reason this was a game-changer for me is because I used to keep my Jabra Elite 75t earbuds in one of the elastic pockets in the main compartment. However, in the back of a cab one day in Oaxaca, I happened to not zip up my sling all the way (which you'll find is a recurring theme in this post) and I'm sure it flung out at some point. (Luckily, as noted with some other items I lost or damaged on my travels in my packing list update, Amex Platimum's protection benefits helped me replace the Jabras with the Beats Fit Pro.) The fit with glasses is snug, but not too tight, and there is no threat of it falling out, even if you don't zip up the front pocket. Now, I just jam my earbuds here every time and I haven't had an incident since.
(Of course, if you're not occasionally careless like me, this is a non-issue.) What the front looks with the glasses + earbuds case The bulge isn't nearly as pronounced when unassisted by my fingers
Moving on, here's what the main compartment looks like when it's loaded out: The goodies Smushed together view for better view of the elastic side pockets
Please note that, most of the time, my passport stays put in the Zero Grid holder in the quick access pocket of my Patagonia Cragsmith 32L when not in use. I only travel with my passport in my sling while I'm in transit to somewhere where passport verification is required. The zippered pocket in the main compartment does not
fit the Zero Grid Passport Holder, but I am not in the least bothered by this because it's one less thing I have to fuss about with when I'm quickly whipping out my passport at the airport.
Here's where my Google Pixel 7 Pro goes: https://preview.redd.it/7tri2zkmuq3b1.jpg?width=4048&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=37db1577c33edad704262ac2a1fa5e4bf0fbfd91 https://preview.redd.it/vqbxqastuq3b1.jpg?width=4048&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=1479444ba6017ed7af394cbfd375fe00a7d03254
Quick aside: As mentioned in the previous post, I had a Pixel 6 Pro that I broke in Uruguay. I was leaving my host's flat in Punta del Este waiting for the elevator. I had my back turned, and when it opened, I put my phone in my sling and turned around quickly to enter the elevator. The phone flung completely out of my bag and landed screen first on the tile floor. I had a Spigen case on it with screen protector, but I had a bad habit of dropping the phone almost daily anyway, so the resultant 95% black screen was really only a matter of time. Note to the lazy: Please don't be like me, zip up your bag.
As a result of this carelessness, I picked up a lanyard for my new Pixel 7 Pro and Spigen case, and I happened to stumble upon another layer of security to guard against this in the future: Connecting the lanyard to a caribiner I affixed to the front loop of the bag. Phone lanyard + caribiner attached to front loop
This has actually been quite a cool feature for me the last couple of months:
- I can still zip up the bag
- I can visually verify that I have my phone without getting into the main compartment
- There's enough slack where I can quickly review walking or public transit instructions without disconnecting the lanyard from the caribiner
Here's the sling bag completely packed out: Loaded out - top view
Loaded out - side view
Finally, let's look at the nylon straps: Nylon strap - rear view HPT = high pressure torsion, aka tough af
As you can see, there's a small gap in the hardware that connects the strap to the bag for ease of replacement and/or cleaning of the bag or strap.
Now that I've covered the lanyard + caribiner combo and strap, let's get into my click-baity title: How I was mugged in the Dominican Republic.
Before the inevitable victim-blaming comments pour in, I will admit that I put myself in a non-ideal situation. Of course, I know I didn't deserve it (no one does), but in hindsight there were a few mitigating steps I could have taken to minimize risk.
The story: I'm sitting at a bus stop alone on a busy street with one else around with my sling bag, Cragsmith, and earbuds in, trying to get back to my friend's flat. The sun is setting so it wasn't quite nightfall, but dark enough. I notice two guys walk by and cross the street. They look right at me, and then one of them at my phone. I promptly put my phone away, which is attached to the caribiner on the sling. Multiple vehicles, including three police trucks, drive by in a 5-min span. I checked my surroundings before I took out my phone again to double check bus ETA.
When I look up again, the same two guys suddenly reappear and are briskly walking across the straight right toward me.
They aren't visibly armed with any weapons, but what is going to unfold is not left to question. I start shouting and cursing them out in Spanish to draw as much attention as possible as one guy lunges at me and grabs my phone and hoodie, while the other guy goes for my sling bag.
I hold onto everything as they drag me off the bus stop bench. I hit the back of my head on the bench on the way down and I was on my back. The guy on my phone almost rips my hoodie clean off but he can't dislodge my phone from my hand. He lets go of the phone and just focuses on my hoodie instead for some reason. The other guy is violently and furiously
yanking on my sling bag, but it just will not break.
I reach for my Hydroflask bottle out of my Cragsmith and whip it against the knees of one guy twice, and I start Spartan-kicking the other guy in the balls while still on my back. After what seems like an eternity, both guys seem to give up and let go. I take this chance to get up and I started swinging my water bottle + paracord sling wildly.
They finally run away when a taxi driver stops to help me out.
So, yeah. That happened. I was rattled for several days afterward, and it really impacted my ability to enjoy Puerto Rico initially. Lots of lessons learned, and I hope I never find myself in that situation ever again.
To bring the focus back to the sling bag, I reviewed its condition thoroughly when I finally got back to my friend's place. There was no indication that it had been in a struggle, and no sign of fraying, tearing, or damage to either the nylon strap, the loops that they connect to, or the aluminum hardware. As I said, the one guy was hellbent on ripping the bag off of me with several deliberate, measured pulls, as if he were taking deep breaths each time. He was pulling so hard, I ended up with strap burns and accompanying pain around my neck and under my left arm, neither of which I noticed until an hour after the assault.
This bag is amazing, 10/10, would recommend, everyone go get one.
And more importantly, I am super lucky it didn't end up worse. Thank god they weren't armed.
To lighten the mood, here's my real favorite feature of the bag: Personalizing it with an elephant charm I bought from a homeless guy in the US before I took off on my trip. (I broke the elephant trunk moshing near the Obelisk in Buenos Aires while celebrating Argentina's World Cup quarterfinals win. Obviously worth it 🥳)
At this point it's obvious that I love this sling bag with all of my heart. On a normal day--especially with my new security best practices--I'm in and out of this bag, zipping and unzipping, likely a legit 100 times. It is built to withstand a staggering amount of abuse while looking super fly, and its utility is endless. This is, without a doubt, the most crucial purchase I've made to my onegear kit.
2023.06.03 09:36 Initial-Juice-2790 uti complications ~~
ok so about two weeks ago I had a UTI like typical symptoms and I took a lot of d mannose instead of antibiotics and things seemed to clear up for the most part. however occasionally I still get twinges of pain in the related areas…also I’ve been irrationally worried about smthn being wrong w my kidneys. like my legs and hands getting tingly and numb randomly if they’re held in position for just a bit. Back pain but near my pelvis mostly so I assume it’s not kidneys. but I’m seeing a doctor via telehelath Monday, but I just wanted some reassurance before then…like I think it’s the numbness/tingling that’s scaring me the most. It’s happened before but I wasn’t sure if it might be related to the uti that may or may not have gone away

2023.06.03 09:36 brokenchico I'm so frustrated
After my 18th birthday I had set a few goals for my life and future. A few of these goals were studying CS, getting a gf, proposing to her, then marrying her some day and after all that the possibility of having a kid or two with that person but almost 7 years later I haven't accomplished none of that.
I'm honestly so frustated and mentally tired. I tought that after becoming an adult my life would get better but everything still sucks. I still live with my parents at my nearly 25 years old, I work a part-time minimum wage job which makes moving out of my parents house impossible and have no friends.
I have thought about committing suicide because I don't want to be 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and so on being a failure but I currently don't have the courage to do that so I live my everyday with hopes that someone or something kills me so I can finally escape this sad life full of loneliness.

2023.06.03 09:35 Lonelylillyflower I have been several men’s tinder nightmare
I 19f, been several men’s tinder nightmare, while I was in active addiction.
So here are all the stories.
1.I was feeling horny one night so I decided to message one of my tinder matches, telling them to climb the window and come to my room to hookup, I unfortunately didn’t pay much attention to his appearance and as soon as I saw his face I threw up and told him to leave.
2.I made one of my tinder matches climb up my window to give me coke several times, it happened on several occasions, the funny thing is he works a government job
- I was on the run from the police and homeless, this guy, I’ve never met but been chatting to for several weeks, offered to let me stay at his place, he told me which train station to go to (which is near his house), my mum knew my Snapchat password and found out the location, I still stayed at his place, but the whole night there was police sirens In the area, but luckily his house was well hidden. He received a call from my mum on my Snapchat account, he was very scared and started to panic, but he still continued to make out with me while panicking
4.I went on a date with this hot guy I’ve been chatting to for several weeks, I was high prior to meeting up, and decided to drink with him, I got very drunk and emotional and started to talk about my past, started crying and threw up all over him, it’s been two years and he is still asking for a second date, I guess he has a puke fetish.
- Similar to the fourth one, a year ago I went out on a date with this tinder match, while being on the run from the police I was very nervous and threw up all over him, and then I made him drive me a round the city, he is also still asking for a second date.
- I went on a date with this super hot guy and he told me to get on his lap, so I sat on his lap and used him as a chair while staring into space for 10 minutes, then realised he meant sit on his lap facing him and make out so I did that.
