2023.06.08 00:15 Osjdks AITA For telling my ex to get out of my daughters life

So I (F25) and ex boyfriend (M26) got into a argument about friking chicken(hes vegan)last year and he then left me all alone with our child (we have a daughter) during that time I was unemployed due to health issues. Back to current situation I recently went to pick up my daughter from her fathers house and he was not home, I of course called him but no answer so I just went in because I have a house key. Daughter says that he left the night she was dropped off there and he never came home.I was astonished. He just came over asking for our daughter because he missed his week due to him not being home. I of course said no and he will not be seeing our daughter again and to get out of her life. He is now saying that I'm a little b!tch and I should never see her again. So what should I do and AITA

2023.06.08 00:13 Tbrown162 Fiancé of 7 years and 1 kid left me but is now giving me mixed signals what do I do?

Little back story last Tuesday she was acting strange so I asked her what was up and that’s when she told me she was leaving. Said she didn’t feel the emotional connection anymore. So Wednesday we didn’t talk until that evening when I asked about my son. Then we get home and she’s talking to me like it never happened. Thursday I helped her dads girlfriend with some stuff and didn’t get home till late. Friday we both went to her dads and she was acting completely normal even invited me to dinner with them and it was like nothing had happened. Saturday is when we started moving stuff and she was acting the same way talking to me holding a conversation asking me to do little tasks for her anytime she needed it even though there was other people there. She was still including me in everything. So Monday I show up to her dads because he said I could borrow his weed eater. So when I show up she wasn’t to happy about it because I had forgotten to text her and let her know I was coming. But I finished with the weedeater and was taking it back and they wasn’t there so I decided to write a letter to explain how I was feeling about the whole situation and left it there for her to read. I get a text shortly after saying that her mind was made up and there was nothing I could do to change it. That destroyed me. But then yesterday when I got my son we was talking and she was headed to a bigger city near us to get party supplies for our sons birthday and I told her to be careful and said bye I love you and she said it back. But then when I turned around and said huh she had a oh crap look on her face (like oh no he heard me) then hurried up and said oh that was for our son and looked nervous. Then today I was getting off earlier than usual and I asked if I needed to get our son and she said that she would get him and that I could come and pick him up. I went to pick him up and she then was acting normal and holding a conversation then asked if I could fix her bumper on her car with a few zip ties. I’m just confused on the situation we had talked Friday before I went to work and I told her I was gonna keep trying and wouldn’t give up and change the things she had complained about and she said you can keep trying but don’t overwhelm me because it’ll just push me further away. I just need some outside input on what I should do. Should I keep trying or should I just give up. She was my whole life and the person I seen a future with and now I don’t know what to do

2023.06.08 00:13 Elocutus55 Need the Herd Mind for options…

I am 67 years old and am at odds with my current ride, my ‘03 BMW R1150R. It’s fabulous, but I’m having a real problem dealing with the weight. This is bike #34 for me, and it’s not the heaviest I’ve ever ridden. I usages to have a ‘14 Honda Gold Wing F6B (bagger) I rode for 2 years until…cancer. I was diagnosed in summer of 2016, had surgery and 6 months of chemo. During the chemo days I flopped the F6B over at a stop light because of general weakness and some atrophy that was sneaking up on me. I wanted to cry…that bike was my best bike ever, and I just let it flop over. Two really nice men behind me in a ratty pickup truck jumped out and picked it up for me and helped calm me down. I rode the rest of the way home (South Florida) being careful to time all the lights to get home. That was the last ride on it for a long time. Eventually I had to do something. The chemo was long over, and I felt bad about it sitting outside in the heat even though I had the specific high end cover on it. After one of those nuisance hurricanes blew the cover into a neighbor’s yard, and feeling ongoing weakness in my legs, I became afraid to ride it. A dealer 30 miles away came and picked it up to service it and check for damage. This was fine, but when I went to fetch the bike, with my new Ranger Lariat and a U-haul, the dealer wouldn’t even show me my bike. This mega powersport dealer wanted my 5 year old F6B, and wouldn’t even roll it out for me to see. After some serious grumbling from me (I had patronized them many times before), I asked them to help me get it in the U-Haul. They balked and started to try to sell me a new bike. I still hadn’t laid eyes on my bike, and I had been there that day for nearly two hours. Because I knew my legs weren’t much improved, even after weeks of physical therapy, I suddenly decided that I might be willing to deal for something else, nice, flashy, and lighter. Two hours later I owned a 2017 Triumph Street Twin. That went into the trailer, and I never saw my F6B again. I wanted to cry again. I started on Hondas back in ‘71, had all those intervening bikes, and bought the Triumph without ever riding it. It went home in my trailer that was then loaded with all my goods so that I could move to the fantastic Pacific Northwest! It was 2019. Then came COVID. I was there to complete my emigration to Canada (new wife). But, many problems arose and the bike was parked in a storage unit, then a house I had to rent b/c I couldn’t bring all my stuff into Canada b/c my immigration process bogged down, and COVID came to kick everybody’s ass. After putting three hundred miles or so, the Triumph sat in a garage up a badly graveled road, so my fear of falling off of the bike was amplified even more. There it sat from September of 2019 until I finally got to enter Canada in May of 2020. But not the bike. More paperwork, and grief. The bike sat in Northern WA state for another year until I sold it thinking my riding days were up, and that I needed counseling or something about my trepidation on falling over again. TL:DR, right? However, I CANNOT NOT HAVE A MOTORCYCLE IN MY LIFE. So, having lost so much money on the F6B and the Triumph, I had to start saving all over again. That’s when I found the BMW for a great price. I got it, rode it home about thirty miles (US speedometer), pulled into the 30 degree slope up to get to our underground parking garage driveway that requires a 90 degree left turn to immediately drop down to the garage gate. Did you guess? I didn’t hit the driveway exactly, was nervous, and we went down right there, scraping the …. out of my left knee. Again, two house painters saw it and came to help me up. I wanted to cry. Got the bike down into the subterranean garage, and it sat while COVID was raging in Canada like everywhere else. I went down to the garage to clean it, pamper it, charging it up and running it. Then, as I was trying to get used to being married again, and some real anxiety, the BMW sat for a while until we were forced to move because of the rental crisis screwing us out of a place to live. June, 2022, we moved and I successfully rode the bike to our new location, on a hill, again. It has been down there ever since. It’s beautiful, old school cool, bright red and breaking my heart. So, here’s the real question: I need to sell it on and get something 100 pounds lighter. Because I’m really a Honda guy at heart, I’ve been looking for a used Hornet 600 or CB500F. I would rather have a four than a twin, though, and need something turnkey reliable, but not boring. I’ve lost 70 pounds, walk 7-8 miles every day, but my legs can stride but not push up or squat. The cancer and atrophy have left me needing to downsize my bike. In southern BC, I need to find my forever bike. #35 will probably be the last one, and my budget is shriveled to around $8,000 CAD. I’ve been trolling Kijiji, looking for a nice Honda, a Kawasaki W650, or whatever I can fit. I’m 6’4” so cruisers are out and too heavy. Sporty bike, less than 425 pounds, and one I can be happy with. Should have never let the Triumph go. I could ride it easily without any fear.

2023.06.08 00:12 browncatmaster I JUST FINISHED THIS ANIME AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY ANYMORE [possible spoilers but hey, if you're gonna read this and you haven't seen this anime, this is a very questionable decision and I recommend against it, but you're here reading this like a fucking idiot and not finishing the anime]

I'M SORRY, I'M DRUNK. To be fair, I'm still sober enough to know that I am definitely writing this and that my brain is still functional enough. But oh my god, guys, I'm sorry, I'm not kidding when I say I DESPERATELY NEEDED SOMEONE TO UNDERSTAND MY EMOTIONS, I DON'T WANT TO BE ALONE FOR THIS AND NO ONE ELSE IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW HAS FINISHED IT TO MY KNOWLEDGE.
BUT MY GOD. I don't. What. Oh my god. Did anyone bawl and literally sob-cry at the second last episode? I don't know what to say, yet I have to let out some of my emotions or I'm gonna collapse like a supernova on the verge of becoming a blackhole I swear to God.
I started watching this randomly nearly 6-7 years ago. Things were so different back then. I ran out of steam and just never ended up finishing it when the last season came out. Yeah, it was a unique anime (imo, anyway, the premise itself is so fascinating, especially what the story grew into), but hey, there are a lot of unique shows I guess. But in general, as it tends to happen, life gets in the way and we all got shit to do.
Recently I thought, shit, why the fuck not finish this shit. I was supposed to watch it with a buddy, we finished the first season (again), but she got busy, I got busy, life happens.
Even more recently I thought, shit, fuck it, I'm gonna finish this goddamn thing. My friend was okay with it, we live drastically different lives and it's hard to get things in order for both of us to watch simultaneously, but she wouldn't mind and I'm fairly certain I did ask her if she's chill with me finishing it.
So again, I decided to finish it. I don't even know what to say. I don't binge, or at least I try not to binge as a result of preserving the emotions you may want to feel when going through any series. I had a relatively bad night last night, I had about 6 episodes left and half a bottle of whiskey (which is not empty because I'm not insane) and I decided to just finish it.
MY GOD. THE LAST BATTLE?!?!?!?! KAYANO'S POSSIBLE DEATH [hey hey, calm down put ur panties back on, I know there's the whole miracle of bringing her back, but I didn't know it would happen, and why the hell ruin the experience by being a smartass and going "oh hurr durr they're gonna bring her back" I decided I genuinely didn't know] THEM HOLDING KORO-SENSEI DOWN, HIM STILL EDUCATING AND THE FINAL ROLE CALL. Oh my god. I cried the whole fucking time, I'm not ashamed to admit it. THE WHOLE TIME, GUYS, I CRIED THE WHOLE TIME, I DON'T CARE. I cried. My god, that hurt. I don't. Fuck man, especially after the reveal of his backstory? and Kayano's backstory? and how far everyone got? The whole concept of E class being the underdog? The backstory of Principal Asano? The change in the entire school's behaviour with respect to E class? Everyone's hopes and dreams? I'm sorry, but Episode 24 almost destroyed me. Oh my god, Nagisa's ugly crying once the blow was dealt? The entire class, EVEN KARMA AND ITONA CRYING?!?!?!? I'm sorry I know this is probably a little extra, but I swear I'm aware of all these emotions and I'm feeling them all. It's so beautiful. This anime is so fucking beautiful. All the lessons. All the funny moments. All the solemn moments. All the moments of bonding. Those plot twists. The unique set up. The growth EVERYONE went through. No, I have 0 shame in admitting that a 25 year old man was just sitting here, drunk, crying and crying and crying. If I didn't have roommates, I would have cried just as hard as the entire E class. I would have shamelessly bawled like a fucking baby. No, I have 0 shame in admitting that.
I am a firm believer in learning of emotional intelligence through stories. I spent 20 years not being able to learn this from my family (a result of abuse and neglect, kudos to being a south asian I suppose), so the way I learned all this were through stories.
This takes the fucking cake. As soon as ep 24 was over, I immediately told my younger brother to watch it. I can't explain how much this anime means to me right now. My god. It's fucking beautiful. It's so fucking beautiful. It's almost perfect. I'm sorry, I dont. Fcuk. Holy shit.
IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THIS GODDAMN THING, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU WAITING FOR YOU STUPID FUCK?????? GO WATCH IT, YOU GONNA WATCH DUMBASS SHIT ANYWAY, WATCH SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN LEARN FROM. AND DON'T BE A FUCKING DOLT AND BINGE IT LIKE SOME NORMIE ASSHOLE I'm sorry please don't take any offense my drunken self may be dealing out to you. For real. This anime is amazing. It's not perfect, obviously, but it doesn't matter. It's so good. It will teach you so many things.
Rest in Power, Koro-sensei. You don't even really exist, but thank you sir, for everything, for all your wisdom, for all your sorrows, for all your pain, for all your mistakes, for all the things you wish you had done differently. When I watch your story again, and I know I will, I will try to remember every single goddamn lesson you taught us. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much.

2023.06.08 00:12 dawixusmaximusus Idk what else to do

Apparently I was shadowbanned from vent from some reason, even though I posted there maybe like once a long time ago, but it's not important. I don't know why I'm writing it, I know it won't help me feel better, I know that no matter how much words I'll spit from my mouth, my heart will be still covered in flames, in agony. I hate myself, I hate that I have audacity to feel bad, to feel tired, to say that I don't like something. I can keep this insanity going, telling how I was raised, about my "depression", even though I don't believe I have it, about my family. I'm not sure what I'm expecting. People are something awful, but amazing at the same time. I like talking to many people about hobbies, how I spend my time, about me, about them, but only in short term. Because I'm a shitty person, I cannot even keep anything going. I don't know how to keep others near me, don't know how to show I care. I tried everything, progress and further research is just futile, I don't see anything getting clearer. I lost my feelings, I lost a lot. I never cared about material stuff, but everyone said I should. I don't know how people just forgot about dignity, honor, symbolism of small actions, how they got rid of something that makes us human, a good human. Anyway, I'm too exhausted both physically and mentally to write more, I feel my pills slowly kick in

2023.06.08 00:12 SapphireSwift Kingsland Road - Harassment

First time posting here as I am actually a visitor and not a resident. Something happened to me and my fiance on Kingsland Road in Hackey on our way to a concert this evening. A man came up to us from behind, said something, and gestured behind him. I looked back, thinking we might've dropped something, but nothing was there. Confused, I asked him "Sorry, what did you say?"
He then gave me this weird kind of smile and started saying something to me I didn't understand, he was definitely slurring. He started getting up close to me. Anyway, my fiance came between us and told him to back off. He immediately got angry and started squaring up to him, my fiance said "leave my fiancee alone" and he started snapping back bits and pieces "just one drink" and "are you gonna fck her? Are you gonna fck her?"
I got scared at this point and pulled my fiance and myself into a small kebab shop/takeaway at the side and luckily for us, one of the workers and another passerby helped us get rid of him, but it took 3 men yelling at him to go away to finally leave. I wish I remembered the name of the takeaway that helped us, but I just wanted to get away asap. All I know was it had a bus stop outside and was near the Earth Arts centre in Hackney.
It's left me quite shaken, and wanted to put a warning out there to other women, especially those travelling alone. He was maybe in his 30s or early 40s, I'd estimate 5'8ish, short dark hair, olive complexion. Wearing a sweater. That's all I remember. My fiance says at one point he saw him try to reach up under my skirt, but I didnt notice as I was too busy looking on the ground where he'd gestured to.
Please please be careful.

2023.06.08 00:12 Noxfox006 Searching for my Sister

Hi reddit, I wish someone could help me(It's nearly imposible though), since is a difficult time to search my sister for myself (my age doesn't let me do it anyway, I'm 16 m).
I was born in Russia, in a town named Vladivostok, and so was my sister. We were both gave in adoption since our parents couldn't give us the best life. I was adopted by a Spanish couple who tried to adopt my sister too, but she was already adopted. I don't know where is she now, I don't even know her name. My Spanish family kept my Russian name (translated though; my name is Pedro, I don't know the Russian form)
Thank you if you stop to read this.

2023.06.08 00:12 TheSuccessfulSperm Considering moving to Greenville

Basically the title. Single 27M engineer in the auto industry looking at potentially selling or renting my house out in Huntsville and heading out to Greenville.
I’ve been a couple times in the past to visit primarily the downtown area for food, drinks, and to see Hamilton back in ‘19. It’d be nice to be back closer to mountains for hiking and to be closer to some better spots for kayaking.
How are things like traffic and apts/housing near or around the bmw plant (and is it possible to even find apts with garages? I’ll need one again when I’m finishing up the engine swap on one of my cars) Are there actually restaurants and grocery stores near the plant? Is dating around my age about as dead as it is in Huntsville? What are the general demographics as far as age, politics, and relationship status if you were to guess? Are there a lot of groups out there to get involved in things like hiking, yoga, or kayaking with others?

2023.06.08 00:12 blgoodboy My Story with Migraine. Now what?

It's so good to be here, I can finally feel understood. I (25M) started to have migraine since I was 5 or 6. My mom has migraine too, so it must be inherited from her. I suffered at that time because a trigger of mine is stay indoor for so long (which means no fresh air), and my mom thought I would be spoiled if I can go outside anytime I want, so no. And painkiller was not option too, because she believed that any painkiller is bad for health especially for a kid. Sounds silly, but that's what a Asian parent did. Because of this, I got through all my attacks by walking outside until 18.
After college I saw some neurologists, but after all the EEG, CT and MRI tests, they told me I am good, all they can give are some painkillers and sleeping pills. I did't really have a sleeping problem, at least had no problem falling asleep (but did have a problem with my sleeping schedule😅), so I took taking painkillers all the time I had a attack, that's all I can do. In college we had 4 guys crammed in 1 room, impossible for me to sleep well, so my life sucked at that time: had headaches everyday at about 4-9pm (now I think it's actually tension headache), sleeping schedule from 3am to 11am (I cannot fall asleep unless everyone else fell asleep), and the lowest GPA you can ever imagine. I don't if I was depressed at that period, but I think the answer would be yes.
Now I'm in a Master's program. My headache doesn't get any better and since it's the end of the semester, I have tension headache nearly all the day, from 4pm to bedtime. It makes me so hopeless about my future: I don't know if I can graduate on time, because I can only study 2-3 hrs a day; I don't know what kind of job I can do or want to do, I tried two internships before, but they sucked: the first one had HRs literally patrolling all the time, every time I get out for some fresh air, they would tell my mentor so I was criticized for so many times; another one was located on fking 40th floor so no chance of fresh air, had headache every time I got off the work.
I am an exchange in Denmark now, and I want to immigrate to here later. I know as a fragile guy I should find an relatively easy job to do but I think Denmark would only accept elite workers, so I have to work very hard again. And Danish home doctors just gave me 3 kinds of painkillers. Seems like I have to fake it so bad to convince my home doctor that I should see a neurologist.
This post is not well organized, because you can't tell how happy I am, how eager I want to pour all my thought on the screen (that's why I think I should check if I have ADHD too). Anyway thanks for reading.

2023.06.08 00:10 Title_Equal The BEST service you can buy (in my experience) for the money, from any MVNO

Now, I’m not going to say that Mint Mobile doesn’t make the cut, because I’ve not tried them. I have seen network speed tests performed by reviewers and concluded with their results and my personal experience and understanding of what you pay for, that USM goes undefeated in the best bang for the buck.
I had an active line with them for around 2.5 years for my personal line. After porting a number I had with them to Visible, and having absolutely trash service (I was using Verizon’s network with USM), and being told by customer service through direct chat that “5Mbps download speed is our minimum acceptable speed, so there’s nothing more we can do to improve it for you”… I nearly had a brain aneurysm. You’re telling me that Verizon’s network is “good enough” in the fifth most populous city of the USA, where I got well over 25+Mbps down speeds on the SAME network with just a different front end/MVNO taking my money, and my home’s trashy DSL line getting 9Mbps down speed is BETTER than $35/month cell service?
I understand this was most likely a back end issue, and there’s more that could have been done to improve my experience if I tried hard enough, but the damage was done. I was being told a crappy speed was “sufficient” to put it lightly.
The phone line was being used by someone else in my household at this point, so I signed them up for their own account (with my details, as they wanted some privacy and aren’t very technical, and I handle all tech problems anyway), got them the 100 day trial activated, and service had been excellent. If I could speak for it holding up to my personal experience with the company, I would, but I can only go off of what the end user reports: zero complaints, zero issues, only some usage data bleed through from the original account that was used with the number (given it was all under the same name, all the same details, I can excuse the minor annoyance since there’s no real privacy breach or anything). The workaround for figuring out how much of the allotment of full speed data was done by taking the second billing cycle of the trial, deducting that total from the number provided by support chat, and making a note for how much to add to the running total for the second billing cycle (if there wasn’t the bleed through of usage data, which is a rare case anyway, it’d be easy enough to just go off the metric for that timeframe).
My “review” of sorts, with a TL;DR is as follows: if you want a quality service that goes above and beyond with customer relations, had solid connectivity where you already get quality service with the Verizon/T-Mobile network, and you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, GET US MOBILE. They really do put the effort into helping their customers, new and old, and if my personal number wasn’t with another carrier because of a benefit that pays for the service, it’d be through US Mobile. The other user in my household that’s using it- flawless experience for the most part. Some minor hiccups and slow speeds at odd hours are to be expected with any network, and they are reportedly resolved on their own without a fuss.
I hope my experience gives a different perspective, and a slightly unique spin on how this company handles their customers and does business. Myself, I’ve had only data package billing cycles, and never had a problem with excessive data consumption or bad speeds. The other user, good enough speeds to be very happy and not once complained in the first few weeks of the free trial period. We both hope tunings continue to go this way for years to come, as I was a proud customer for around 2.5 years myself. I can say that since finding their service thanks to MVNO comparison sites and reviews, that there had never been a service this high quality for this price, nor that I bothered to test drive it myself (save my awful experience with Visible).
If you’re considering USM for a new line/port in, they’re FAST at getting you up and running (takes minutes at the most), and you’ll love the fact that the network experience truly is “premium” without making excuses. Just try them out, especially if you have an eSIM to spare in your phone, and see if they can save you money/offer a similar experience to what you get now. You’ll be pleasantly surprised, even if you don’t make the switch

2023.06.08 00:10 MountainWalk88 Moved from AW Ultra to Instinct 2X

Let me tell you i never have been more satisfied with a switch ever. I love apple but i couldnt justify the 799 price tag for a watch that doesnt do nearly as much as this one in terms of durability and battery life. Apple watch doesnt have solar and probably wont ever get solar. Have you guys done this switch as well? What are your thoughts?

2023.06.08 00:10 Anonymous_NYC_2023 I was posted in AWDTSG NYC. I'm distraught.

I was posted Are We Dating The Same Guy NYC (or at least I'm 90% sure I was). I'm not doing well.
Background and Dating
I am new to the dating game after a recent divorce. Using Hinge and Bumble has always been a nice way to date casually and to build up my confidence again. I've been on dozens of wonderful dates and met lots of really great people. There have been some fleeting hookups, some months-long relationships, and plenty of matches that don't advance past the first date. In all, my experience on Hinge and Bumble has been very positive. It's been a nice way to put myself out there, visit great restaurants and bars around the city, and strike up chemistry with women who I thought were way out of my league. From a rock bottom self-esteem after the divorce, the apps helped me regain some confidence. Somehow I kept having great dates with great people.
As a previously married guy, I have prided myself on knowing how to interact with women. I don't send lewd messages on apps. I try my very best to be respectful of other's time. My aim is and always has been to date conscientiously and respectfully. Consent is of the utmost importance - and it starts from the first message. From a date to a kiss (or more), engagement should always be affirmative and enthusiastic. Though I have dated around, I'd like to think that I haven't wronged anyone. I want nothing more than to share nice meals and laughter with any date. And if it leads to more, great.
Things Getting Weird
About 2 months ago, things started to get weird. It started with a woman I was seeing at the time. We had been on maybe 3-4 dates. She texted me one day to break things off. Her text basically said: "I didn't realize you were talking to other people and that doesn't work for me. Bye." A string of similar instances happened after that. I would plan dates and then be mysteriously unmatched. I would receive day-after messages like "I had a great time with you, but this isn't going to work. Thanks!" That happened several times. My strong hunch is that I've been posted in the AWDTSG NYC group. Maybe once, maybe twice, maybe more. I don't know. I don't know how the page works or how easy it is to search people on it, but I've convinced myself that I'm on it. I feel like I've been marked with a red flag.
Mental Health Nightmare
I'm an introverted guy. I don't want to be in the public sphere. I don't want people to know who I am. And now this. I can feel a pit in my stomach imagining the comments posted about me. Me.
Ugly. Short. Creepy. Too much baggage. Divorced. Out of shape. Only looking for sex. Self-centered. Doesn't look like his pics. Gross. Horn dog. Red flag. Ugly apartment. Weird. Douchey. Dumb. Rude.
I hate, absolutely dread, the idea of those things being said about me. It makes me want to pack my bags and leave this big dumb city forever. It makes me want to break down and cry. It makes me want to delete these fucking apps and become a recluse. It makes me terrified about professional repercussions. It makes me feel like when I go to the grocery store, people know who I am. It's a combination of fear, shame, disgust, depression, embarrassment.
I am not doing well... at all.
The thing is, I'm too scared to look. I have several female friends who are in AWDTSG NYC group--we've talked about it before. But I don't want to ask them. I don't want them to see (if they haven't already). And more importantly, I don't want to know the vile things that might be said about me.
I've been cooped up in my apartment the past few days. I don't want to leave. I don't want to open the apps. I don't want to do anything. I feel a profound sense of despair and malaise. I hate this.
What's Next?
The last time I checked, there are currently 113,000 members or so in AWDTSG NYC Facebook group. There are about 100 posts a day. Thousands of new members are added each week. I realize that my story is not unique. Any posts of me will eventually be buried, but that doesn't make it any easier in the short term. I am OK with sitting around and waiting out this storm. It might take a few months, a year. I don't know. In the meantime, I'm just going to sit around and wait. Despondently, that is.
In the meantime, could anyone provide some context about this page actually works? Do you search men by first name and last name? Do you search by phone number? Does it show your full Hinge profile? I'm just curious what the functionality is like on the inside.
If you're in a similar situation, I sincerely wish you the best. Prioritize your mental health. Wishing you all love and peace.

2023.06.08 00:10 DenimDickhead Smoking comeup anxiety.

every SINGLE time I smoke salvia, whether it's pipe or bong I feeel extremely anxious and never continue. My worries get intensified when I start feeling cold and sweaty and then a sensation like the room is pulling me back into it. That particular combination just sends fucking alarm bells in me and always prevents me from going in. The 10x I bought from zamnesia was defenitely 10x the first time I just chickened out every single time I felt the cold sweaty pull. I'm going to quid and because even taking a few weed like drags from a pipe filled with ground up plain leaf I'm very quickly reminded of that awful feeling and I just cant smoke it in any way, I have to quid, smoking it just freaks me out after reading all the horror stories of dosing to fast or too much. If I'm going on a hell ride I want a smooth 15 minutes to adjust, without the presence of smoke invading my lungs.
What's it like beyond this stage? I've kind of gotten there but I just dissacociated a little and never took another drag. While you're at this cold sweaty anxious pull, is there anything really to be worried about? Are the effects of salvia to be truly feared like everyone says they are or should I just chill, move past it and smoke more? This feeling is just fucking awful.

2023.06.08 00:10 kingsoflove I'm getting pretty worried for Vox.

Vox is my Oishi, and despite his hiccups as a content creator I do appreciate him a lot. I just want to get my thoughts out there.
Note; these are just /my/ thoughts. I am making thoughts based on what information Vox has made known and what Nijisanji made known. I am NOT interested in speculating in what "actually might be happening", let alone conjuring up any rumors.
Vox has been worrying me, and his stream from yesterday kind of confirms my worry. I'm not worried about what kind of content he wants to do / wants to reel back in, people change their style as is. But it's more like... he seems incredibly overwhelmed. The way he was talking about how his channel is, where he wants to go with his channel, and what he /actually/ wants to do (filming and such), seems less of 'I know what to do! but it's just kind of hard to balance' and more like a very antsy and panicking way of 'i have to do this but i also have to do that but i also want to do this but i also but i also-' i don't know I don't know."
I have ADHD, and I was lucky enough to be diagnosed with it as a young age so I can understand a little better why does my brain react the way it does. The way Vox talked about it very much feels more like he's a very overwhelmed person struggling with ADHD as it is. It hit a little too close to home because I get that too, and so does my other friends. And it's a nightmare mental state to be in and really the only real solution to it is just forcing yourself into a long break. It's a weird cycle that because you're burnout, your ADHD brain wants you to get the stimulation it wants to take away the burnout, but of course, you're burnout, so most things aren't giving you stimulation as it is so it's a nightmareish cycle...
Dudes also really haven't been getting a break IRL either as of late. It feels like he's had family emergencies back to back, getting incredibly sick, and it did bring me alot of worry when he came back on the stream like "i think i processed everything!" like dude no it sounded really serious you don't process something serious so fast in a short amount of time. And then of course, this morning (well, morning for me since Vox lives in PST time), he was going to stream nearly after the fact only to get super sick.
He's got his faults and I know he doesn't always handle his situations the best, but I can tell he's trying. And it hurts to see someone sincerely trying in such a panicked state.
I really hope he takes a long break soon, I want him to be okay.

2023.06.08 00:09 Vasaluv US Marriage Visa for Brazilian Husband; Emailing Senator

I'm a US citizen, and my husband of nearly one year is from Brazil. When we first got married and applied for his Visa in August, it said that it would take 10.5 months on average to process the i-130. Now, on the USCIS webpage, it's saying that our case is taking longer than usual to process, but it's not giving an updated timeline (though the Nebraska center says 14.5 months now on their site). This isn't taking into consideration the NVC timeline and Brazilian timeline for getting him the interview. We'd been hoping for a June 2024 wedding ceremony in the US with my family (we're legally married, but now we want an actual ceremony - we can move this a little, but it'd be annoying), and I was hoping to go to graduate school in the fall of 2024 (which I will not budge on. Homegirl needs her PhD, and as a mental health professional, you could say that my future clients need me to get that PhD asap, too) - both of these things need my husband with me (especially since I can't move without adding more delays, so I'm taking a year off from schooling just so that he can be with me).
I met somebody who works in the capitol who said that I should contact my representative to help move the situation along, and while I'm not a Karen and understand that the Visa centers are understaffed and don't want to add to their stress, I do recognize that the squeaky wheel gets the grease and uh, I would literally fight the sun *and* a thousand lions to get my husband to my side. So I'm drafting some stuff for an explanation and plea to my senator, and I'm wondering what I should include as additional leverage. Like, for instance, my husband has a bachelor's degree, speaks better English than I do, and happens to be the illegitimate son of a foreign politician in a country (not BR) that has a decent relationship with the US, but isn't a super power or anything. I don't know if any of this information would help or hinder my request? I get that mentioning my wedding plans wouldn't be helpful, but I wonder if my continued schooling would be? Anyways, thanks for reading if you got this far. Any advice? tl;dr: I'm contacting my senator to hopefully speed up the visa process (which is saying it's taking longer but not giving me a timestamp of when I should expect it to work) since homegirl needs the support of her smart, hot Brazilian husband to continue with her grad school and life in general. What do I include?

2023.06.08 00:08 Hefe_Weizen More veggie variety = fewer of each veggie?

I always order nearly every possible vegetable. I typically try to name them off as the artist puts them in the sandwich, as opposed to saying them all at once as soon as they ask what I want on it.
The reason is twofold: firstly, it seems more polite than expecting them to remember everything, although I'm sure that's not a problem for many, and some artists even seem to prompt me to say them all immediately instead of only after each veggie is applied.
The second reason is that I suspect if the artist knows I will want every vegetable, they will, consciously or not, put less of each vegetable. This is not good for me. Thus I prefer to say the next veggie only after the current veggie is applied.
So, sandwich artists, be honest: does knowing in advance that I will have all the veggies make you add less of each, perhaps to make it easier to cut/wrap, for example? Or some other reason?

2023.06.08 00:08 throwaway06601 Can you get sick from waste/trash/etc being near an AC/HVAC vent?

This is gonna be the most absurd and stupid Reddit post you’ve seen today but hey that’s the namesake of this sub… so long story short, I caught a homeless man shitting right in front of my apartment window (I live in a fairly large apartment building on the ground floor, there’s a strip of landscaped hedges between my window and the street). He left behind a bunch of wet wipes along with everything, and it’s sort of close to my air conditioning/HVAC vent. The vent itself is actually elevated, and the crime scene is below on the ground. I’ve notified my building’s maintenance office about it, but in the meantime my extremely anxious self keeps thinking of crazy scenarios.
Basically, my stupid question is, could that being even near my AC/HVAC vent possibly make me sick somehow, or am I overthinking this?

2023.06.08 00:08 sufferchildren Seeking Guidance: Aortic Dilatation and Valve Replacement Decision

Hello ValveReplacement,
I am a 26-year-old male from Brazil (Brazilians, let's chat!), and I recently received some concerning news regarding my health. I have been diagnosed with a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) and aortic dilatation measuring 4.8cm. Fortunately, my aortic valve is currently functioning normally. I work in finance and am in the process of changing jobs. However, my cardiologist has advised me to undergo follow-up appointments every six months (yellow flag, he said).
Given my situation, I have found myself at a crossroads. I took some gap months, and I am actively searching for a new job, but now I am faced with the possibility of surgery in the near future. Should I proceed with the surgery if it is recommended? How might a potential future employer react if I have to take a leave of absence for surgery only a few months after starting a new job?
I would greatly appreciate any guidance, or shared experiences from those who have faced a similar situation. Specifically, I would like to know:
Any insights or recommendations would be immensely helpful as I navigate this uncertain path in both my personal and professional life.
Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.

2023.06.08 00:08 isap0wer Which book ruined you for any other novel with that same trope?

I have a problem: I love the slow-burn-enemies-to-friends-to-lovers trope. But I’ve also read a book that was so on par with my dream novel with this trope, that now, any time I try to read anything with this same trope (that I used to consume like a madwoman), I’m just never quite satisfied. Oh, it’s a road that leads to frustration…
I just can’t help but compare: “Well, this is good… but THAT BOOK did it so much better…”, which kind of hampers my enjoyment of the trope. It’s a blessing (found my near perfect book) and a curse (the bar is set too high now).
Has this happened with you? Which book did it? How to overcome… Help a girl out (and also give me your recs!)
My quasi-white-whale was “Reforming Lord Ragsdale” by Carla Kelly (I’d only add smut to make it perfect 🫣)

2023.06.08 00:08 Consistent_Cup620 First date dilemma

Is it okay if I take girls to a restaurant or a pub where I know the wait staff on the first date?
So 29y old guy here. I used to work at a restaurant and a pub earlier so it's safe to say everybody there knows me. Would it be awkward for the other person?
