2023.06.08 18:14 Rhofawx Draft question
Planning on doing my first draft in arena soon, and I wanted to know two things. One: how long does it take to draft all the cards? I want to make sure I have enough time set aside so I don’t leave mid-draft. Second: when battling, do I have a time limit to get my wins/losses or does it not matter.
Basically I want to make sure I don’t have to leave early and lose out on cards or prizes.

2023.06.08 18:13 WorldlyExamination20 Girlfriend (23f) not happy about me (25m) not wanting to go home with her
My partner and I have been together for around 2 years. I had made plans to catch up with 2 friends last weekend that I had not seen in nearly a year. I told my gf about it and said she was welcome to join us so she agreed. She said she didn't want to stay out too late and said she'd probably get the last bus home. We all met up and went for food and had a few drinks then went to a couple more bars.
My gf mentioned that she was going for the bus so I told her I'll see her when I get back then and to let me know when she got home safely. She asked if I was staying out later and I said yeah since I hadn't seen my friends is a long time and she said she thought I'd be going back with her. I told her no and that I'm happy to get her a taxi if she doesn't want to get the bus. She said on and got annoyed, I asked why it was a big deal and she knew I was planning a night out.
She said I knew she didn't want to be out too late but I just pointed out that that doesn't mean I didn't want to stay out late. She said I was being unreasonable since she wanted to go back with me but I told her no and that I am staying out. She stormed out of the bar and refused to reply when I messaged her. The next day she just repeated her points from the previous night in saying I should have left with her. Does anyone have any advice on how to handle this?
tl;dr my and my partner went to catch up with some of my friends and she got annoyed that I would not leave the same time as her. Does anyone have any advice?

2023.06.08 18:11 Thertch Return of the Obra Dinn Makes a Short and Mediocre Story One of the Most Engaging Narrative Experiences of All Time (Spoilers)
It only took about half an hour or so, and Return of the Obra Dinn had its anchor hooked into me so deep there was no escape. This is the type of game which doesn’t just pull, but rips you in with a harmonious approach centred around two main ideas:
One – its structure, and two – how progression is gated.
On the second point, it is a rare type of game whose very progression is untethered from any higher-level mechanical input, but instead occurs entirely within your own mind. This is a concept which is so rarely pulled off well, that the notable success stories in this domain (namely Return of the Obra Dinn itself, and the Outer Wilds) have become modern cult classics.
Conventional is the last thing Return of the Obra Dinn can be called. What I find absolutely fascinating about this game is how it uses all the unique elements in its toolset to tell a grossly engaging story with a book-like quality, and has done so with minimal dialogue and practically zero text. I want to dissect what makes this game ‘special’ so to speak. How the solo developer, Lucas Pope, has done the impossible and made a more than worthy game in the wake of Papers Please.
Against all odds, the game manages to make what is honestly a fairly mediocre story by contemporary standards, one of the most engaging, satisfying and enjoyable narrative experiences of all time which is far stronger than the sum of its parts.
A quick preface so I don’t ruin anyone’s life:
This is one of those games you can only play once. I’m spoiling the hell out of the game here. For anyone who hasn’t played the game, and you think there’s even a 0.1% chance you’ll play this one day, go away. I don’t want you here. In fact, look at yourself in the mirror until you can change that to 100%. I’d love to write something that would convince people who haven’t played to actually play, but by the one-and-done nature of the game, that would not be easy. Instead, you have to take it on blind faith and just play it. No game is for everyone of course, but I think at least tyring this game is for everyone.
So now that it’s just the cool kids, let’s do it.
Come on, mediocre is a bit harsh right?:
Maybe it is. However, I don’t think the strength of the game is the narrative itself. The writing is tight, the most common characters on the ship, the Obra Dinn, are generally believable and fleshed out, but I don’t think there much being said in the narrative proper. Essentially, a ship is delivering for the East India company. It turns out that a group of Formosans (a republic within current day Taiwan which existed very briefly during when the game is set, an insanely niche yet accurate addition I have to add) were transporting a supernatural seashell. Someone else tries to steal this, which incites various sea monster attacks of the Obra Dinn. Most of everyone gradually dies. The sea monsters eventually stop attacking, and the remaining survivors turn on each other for various reasons. Then finally, the captain of the ship kills his fellow shipmen in self-defence, and finally himself in the wake of the loss and destruction. There’s not really much in the way of character development, not really much meat to make a layered story. But hey, that’s actually totally ok, because that’s not the point of the game. This is a simple enough story, and the structure of the game around this story elevates it to heights that shouldn’t be possible, but Lucas Pope pulls it off.
Structuring a detective story – not so elementary my dear Wattson:
The story told in this game is structured as a non-linear story. The non-linear concept is key to Return of the Obra Dinn. We’ll get back to why, but at the surface, its not overly interesting. This is pretty much the standard format for how the minor narratives of detective stories (that is, the story of the mysteries themselves) are structured. Think about your classic Sherlock Holmes mystery, or even a standard L.A. Noire crime (if you let me be a bit reductive for a moment):
- Introduction to the conclusion of the event (someone was robbed and murdered in an alley!).
- Looking for clues to figure out what happened (the person was shot).
- Investigation of characters peripheral to the event (interviewing the suspects, one of the suspects has the victim’s watch).
- In a minor twist mid-narrative recontextualises the story thus far (the watch guy was framed, and it was his twin brother the whole time).
- The wise, pretentious detective recounts the story in chronological order, and everything clicks into place finally.
Essentially, the basic structure is a story told in reverse chronological order. This is what allows the mystery to remain tense and exciting the whole way through. For many, the satisfaction of a good mystery is in trying to solve the mystery alongside the detective protagonist, and the catharsis of the final reveal. Especially if you’ve been particularly observant and picked up the clues earlier than the overarching story delivers them.
A weakness with this mode of mystery structure in a standard story is that the audience doesn’t always share the ‘ah ha!’ moment of the protagonist. Sometimes this is by design to subvert expectations, but in the cases where it’s not, it can lead to a disappointing mystery. In the medium of video games, this can become a particular issue where a disconnect is much more dangerous. I mentioned L.A. Noire before. This bridges the gap somewhat as the win state of the game hinges on correctly solving cases. So, you’re incentivised to go beyond just passively consuming the mystery, but to actual solve the mystery. Ultimately though, these stories can just be played without any conviction if the player is getting bored or confused, and the detective roleplay element is lost.
Return of the Obra Dinn is almost a direct solution to this problem, and works as a much better detective game, at least, than something like L.A. Noire or a Sherlock Holmes game. (For reference I love L.A. Noire, I would never say it’s a bad game, pls forgive me for my transgressions Team Bondi, I miss you). Return of the Obra Dinn has almost the same structure in its overall narrative as the 5 points I mentioned above. But in this case, the main narrative is focused on the mystery of the ship, the Obra Dinn. The linearly paced present-day story has little of the game’s focus. It is thus fundamentally non-linear, and this is what gives it the detective mystery feel. This non-linearity is felt throughout every fibre of the game though, as its not just a reverse recount of a mystery story, but instead, the game mechanics for exploration itself has you travelling through time non-chronologically. So you’re there piecing together the mystery, travelling from the conclusion to the beginning through time itself, like a true detective, but in a meta way.
This is combined with the physical progression the player (i.e., the insurance auditor) makes through the game. You have to go deeper into the ship, downwards, to progress through the mystery. So, you travel from recent events to events further in the past as you simultaneously travel deeper into the ship, the whole while travelling deeper into the mystery itself. It is an excellent way to sell the feeling of solving a mystery with pacing alone.
And about that pacing. The bulk of the story could be told upfront in a linear way, with all the details present in a full playthrough, in probably about 10 minutes. But you solve the mystery of everyone’s death one by one and are drip-fed exposition for the story of the Obra Dinn over about 10 hours instead. You feel like you know all 60 people who served on the ship personally by the time you’re done, and you walk away with an investment in the narrative few other games in the mystery genre could even fathom achieving.
Ultimately the reverse-order solution gives sense of constant discovery. Exposition is rarely direct, and instead is embedded in the discovery process itself.
Gate my progression Daddy:
So, the pacing and structure of the game is fantastic, and tuned just right to sell the detective mystery narrative and feel. That is only half of the story though as the progression system of the game is so unique in the wider landscape of video games.
Mechanically, the game is dead simple. You walk around and watch scenes of the deaths of people on the Obra Dinn. You then have to deduce, by clicking some boxes, what each person’s name was, what their fate was (usually death), and who was responsible for their fate. Sounds simple, but the game makes a lot of this very obscure for most of the fates. You therefore figure out the fates only through your own deduction. You are the one who must investigate the scene. You are the one who interprets the evidence. You are the one who must recontextualise new evidence to understand the mystery. No one is there to do this for you. Most importantly, to ‘progress’ you must fill in the fates yourself. All of these processes occur in the mind, it’s a logic puzzle at its core, but one which mimics the process of roleplaying a detective. The exposition is the gameplay here, where understanding the mystery of the Obra Dinn is what progresses the narrative, and thus the game. The “guess 3 to reveal whether you’re correct” system (mostly) prevents cheese as well, leaving everything up to deduction.
This is all unlike L.A. Noire, which is less logic, and more about trying to quantify how scrunched up someone’s face is. L.A. Noire is also more mechanically demanding with combat and gunplay as well, decoupling progression even further from pure deduction. In Return of the Obra Dinn, one’s brain is constantly firing to process the logic – with very little stimulus. So much of the game takes place in the mind, not on the screen.
A lot of people say this game makes them feel like a genius. The deep connection between game progression and narrative is exactly why. You discover the story through your own logic, and in order to finish the game, you necessarily need to have successfully completed the logic puzzles of the game (the fates). So, you feel like a genius for simply pursuing the core gameplay loop. Additionally, player agency over the experience of the story (specifically over the non-linearity of time) creates a sense of immersion and fuels the desire to uncover the mystery and thus the narrative.
So, the structure of the game makes puts the events of the game in such a way that you fill in the detective roleplay. This so powerfully synergises with the gameplay systems themselves that you have this narrative experience so encapsulating, very few games come even close to competing. There is one last thing which sells the experience.
The game could have perfect pacing, a perfect narrative structure, a satisfying logic progression system, but that doesn’t mean you’ll want to keep playing the game. You have to be invested in the moment-to-moment presence, since a lot of what you’re doing is walking around and looking. That’s why the meticulous attention to immersion, and to the details within the worldbuilding are a crucial part of the game. Return of the Obra Dinn is a wonderfully immersive game, whose immersive qualities blend together with the non-linear structure to not just pull, but rip you into the games narrative and world.
I mentioned before that the game has a book-like quality. What I mean by this is that the mind does so much ‘fill in the blanks’ throughout the game. This is in large part due to the 1-bit art style. It cements a wonderfully unique identity to the game which makes it instantly recognisable, but more importantly it allows the game to play out as if every frame were an intentionally designed piece of 1-bit artwork. The simplicity of the low resolution and the binary colour presentation means your mind fills in a lot of the gaps. It kinda feels halfway between reading a setting in a book, and seeing a setting realised on film or in a photorealistic render. Because your mind is doing a lot of the heavy lifting, your enveloped in the world. This extends so brilliantly to the sound design, especially when you’re below deck. The creaking of the ship as it bobs in the water. The sound of waves crashing out in the infinitely encompassing ocean. The the moments of silence which briefly fill in the in-betweens as you process the mystery around you. It ground the player in such a strong sense of presence.
Before each ‘scene’ in the game where you experience someone’s death, the screen is blank except for captions of the words spoken by the people in the scene. Your mind ignites with imagination as the soundscape tells its own story alongside. Then, the scene arrives, and it’s static. No animations. A picture might tell a thousand words, but they tell 1000 different permutations of 1000 words, and no two interpretations of events in Return of the Obra Dinn’s death scenes will every be perfectly identical. It a balanced dichotomy of explicit visual and auditory presentation with enough missing information to execute the book-like quality of its presentation.
At the same time, everything in and on the ship is believable, and this is in no small part to the immense research Lucas Pope did to have accurate attention to detail. The ship design, the crew structure, the geography of the ship’s voyage. When you go to check after the fact, it is all impressively accurate (with the exception of the number of people on the ship, Pope has mentioned he had to cut the realistic number down to 60 so he could actually finish making the game). It might not quite fit here, but I absolutely have to shout out the soundtrack as well. It sounds like someone was told “this organ is on fire, you have 3 minutes to play its final piece, go”. It gives a sense of grandeur to the wider narrative and world. I’m astounded that a generalist like Lucas Pope has such refined skills across his disciplines that everything from the gameplay to the art design, to even the soundtrack, which he did so himself, are all of such high quality. It clearly helps in executing such a precise creative vision like that in Return of the Obra Dinn.
Conclusion (lucky I didn’t make my critique non-linear):
What a follow up to Papers Please. I think Papers Please was a more popular game in general, and in interviews, Lucas Pope has said he actually prefers Papers Please himself. However, Return of the Obra Dinn shows this is not a one-hit-wonder situation. I think both games work well for different reasons. Having single name authorship on games is very rare, and Pope has earned his title here as a video game auteur in my opinion.
Despite the simple narrative in the game, every single aspect of game design comes together to pull of the ‘more than the sum of its parts’ effect. In particular, the game is trying to sell a detective roleplaying experience. It is not the plot or story itself, but the non-linear narrative structure in harmony with the mental meta progression, and sharp immersive qualities of the game which hook you in. You always want to figure out the next three fates. You always want to understand the mystery with an insatiable curiosity. You want to pin everything on the captain.
Executing a game like this clearly isn’t an easy task. While simple on the surface, a lot of creative design has to come together from different disciplines of video game development. It might not be an overly popular subgenre (exploration-focused logic games), but I think there’s a reason so few exist beyond the explanation of demand. It’s hard to weave together an intricate world which is paced in such a way that the player is engaged from beginning to end. It doesn’t take much to shatter a link in such a long chain.
I don’t really know of many other games which exist in this category. I mentioned The Outer Wilds, which has a similar mental- and logic-gated progression grounded in in-game discovery. I know The Case of the Golden Idol operates similarly to Return of the Obra Dinn, but I haven’t played this myself so I can give any input here. What I can say is that for me, Return of the Obra Dinn stands tall and proud in a small list of exceptional games of detective progression systems by virtue of a breadth of expert design.

2023.06.08 18:11 ArthurJack_AW How long does it take for a Chaos Warband to empty a space station?
I read about the story of a cruiser that took over a space station and started extracting all the fuel it could get and moving all the supplies it could get and herding the crew onto their ship. I just wonder how long it would take to move all the supplies for a 4km long space city, especially since 40K doesn't seem to be known for its efficiency. Curious about them. How many servants are needed. And they could be attacked by IoM reinforcements or other Chaos counterparts if they stay one second longer. It seems like a dangerous process?

2023.06.08 18:09 arseholierthanthou Crazy difference in reaction damage, Aggravate/Spread vs Hyperbloom
I've been slowly building an Aggravate/Spread team for the last month, taking all four characters from level 1. They're now on the cusp of level 70. Keqing, Collei, Kuki Shinobu and Sucrose.
Last week I mentioned here how frustrating it was using them against stone shield mitachurls, and someone pointed out that basically the whole team isn't doing much damage. Suggested I try Hyperbloom instead.
And, wow, that was transformative. Swapped out Keqing for Xingqiu from my Freeze team and just devastated. I originally went for Aggravate/Spread as I figured it'd be the simplest to control the reactions of, as introducing three elements for Hyperbloom or Burgeon looked confusing, and I couldn't get enemies to hold still long enough for cores to hit them using just Bloom. So I've spent a week smashing things with bright colours and big numbers using Hyperbloom.
Tried the Aggravate/Spread lineup again today. I thought the characters were doing more damage now as they'd been levelled more, and had weapons and talents upgraded. Figured that, yes, Hyperbloom did more damage, but still, they'd do ok on Aggravate/Spread now they're more built.
Nope. Staggering how little damage it does in comparison. Fights take 3x longer. I know Kuki Shinobu is the perfect character for Hyperbloom and Fischl is much better suited to Aggravate, but still. Hard to believe that even with Fischl instead of Kuki the Aggravate damage would be competitive.
Hyperbloom is crazy-powerful. Never looking back!

2023.06.08 18:08 Duffmanvg7575 Suspended for being 5 mins late
Hey, all so I just need get something off my chest.
Today I was suspended without pay, for 2 days because I was 5 mins late. Theres quite a bit of backstory so lets get into the weeds.
I work as a shipping clerk for a unionized company in NY (A hire at will state). I'm not union and assume can't be, because my job is office/clerical and theirs is heavy lifting and productivity.
I'm given, yearly 40 hours of personal time, and 2 weeks' vacation time which I've exhausted as of 2 weeks ago. Use was put toward a single trip, my 2-year-old and daycare closing, along with depression that I'm handling day by day.
This all starts when I exhausted my time. I was told I could freely make up time as long as I hit 40 hours each week. This was the running deal with my supervisor (Call him H) but not my manager (Call him J) for the past year and a half. After I exhausted my time, I took 3 days and got written up by my J (but not by H). No big deal, this was a slap on the wrist, and I knew that I did wrong. I knew there were consequences. They wanted a promise that this wouldn't be an issue and during write up meeting 1, I explained that I have depression and that I'm starting medicine to help me get better but I wont miss time. I'm committed and happy with my job. It was a bit personal, but I thought I had that relationship with my manager.
Monday of last week, my doctor called and explained that I might be interested in FMLA. FMLA covers depression as a major condition and I could use the time to help manage flair ups, or "get better" I was interested and talked to my HR. HR provided me the paperwork on Thursday, and I immediately sought to drop off the paperwork to my doctor that evening. Office was closed and I thought "this is important, I need to do it the next morning". I text my boss that I was going to be 15 mins late, just dropping off paperwork to my doctor. I dropped off the paperwork Friday and toward the end of the day, was served a write up from my CEO, for being 15 mins late. (Backstory here, HR Manager is out on medical leave, so my CEO is acting HR right now).
Monday, I was still upset but put water under the bridge. I worked diligently and aimed to come in, at 8, every morning. Tuesday rolls around and I had to wrestle with a sleepless night with my son. I was tired, and annoyed but Google Maps says I got to the gate at 8:02. My workstation is how I log my time, so I needed to wait for the PC to boot and website to load, and my punch read 8:05. I didn't think anything of it, because the prior conversation had me worried about 15 mins to an hour over. This was still in a typical grace period for most. I was confronted with a 3rd and final warning, met with a suspension until Monday. The CEO said, "Take the time and we will sit down Monday to see if you really want to continue working here."
The last bit of backstory is that we have a performance evaluation. I was graded as all 4's (out of 5). My work is stellar, my ambitions for the role were high, and I loved the people I worked with. My only issue to them is my attendance. Which has been a mixed bag of messages, because my supervisor is way more relaxed than my manager. My manager doesn't even really manage me at the end of day. He (I think) doesn't want to see me dismissed.
I have half a mind to throw it in their face on Monday and say "I want to work here but do you want me to work here? I'm committed, and enthusiastic about my job. I have a medical issue I'm working to resolve but your pressure isn't helping any of it. Why compound the write ups and not give me a chance to atone?" Sorry for the long ramble. Being in NY state doesn't fill me with much confidence for Unemployment, or wrongful termination but I know they don't want me anymore. I know it.

2023.06.08 18:08 MasterpieceNew6549 Can the relationship last if gf(21) and I(24) have opposing views on religion
I've been trying to work this out with my gf, but I would love to hear the perspective of others who have been in similar situations. We have been together for almost 2 years. Every aspect of our relationship is virtually perfect as far as how we feel about each other. We have common values, goals, and see the world in a similar way. The only massive discrepancy is our differing views on religion. We were raised in extremely different households. She comes from a rather traditional, conservative, christian family. My parents are quite the opposite. I was never forced to practice any religion or follow a certain way of thinking. They let me think for myself and formulate my own views on such topics. It was quite clear when we first started talking that she was greatly influenced by her parents. She let me know that she practices religion and that god is a big part of her life. This is typically a red flag for me since I am agnostic and know that I do not want religion to be a part of my life, and I will also not force religion onto my children. However, I decided to continue on with the relationship since like I said, every other aspect of it was perfect. Throughout our relationship, it started to seem as though she grew more and more distant from her religion. I would attribute that to her learning to think more for herself and to not be so easily influenced by others. I have expressed to her how I feel regarding the topic, but never once told her that she needs to agree with me. She has expressed to me that she is still confused about how she feels and still needs to explore that aspect of herself. I am afraid this is her way of saying that she doesn't want to upset me by telling me how she actually feels. She has also very recently said that she feels god in her life, so I guess that I am worried it might become a larger part of her life which I think may affect the relationship long term. Am I wrong for being so worried about this? Like I said besides this every aspect of the relationship is amazing. What sort of questions should I be asking her to see if it can work in the future or not? I have heard people say religion is something that needs to be 100% agreed on, and others have said it does not matter as much.
tl;dr Gf and I have opposing views on religion. Can the relationship work long term?

2023.06.08 18:08 bcg85 Does it ever get easier? (Extremely long)
I realize this post is enormous. But I just need to get it all out. I thank you for taking the time to read it and view the pictures in the album link below. Photo album here.
I'm absolutely lost right now. I know people who have lost close family and friends and I've heard them talk about the grief and sadness, but I've only ever been close with a small handful of people, all of whom are still alive. I have never had any sort of significant loss before, and this past week has been the absolute worst week of my life and I am struggling so much.
10 years ago I adopted a dog from our local shelter. I always said I didn't pick him, he picked me. We were literally made for each other. I named him Remington, but literally always just called him Remi. He was my best friend and I would literally take him everywhere with me unless I absolutely couldn't. He was listed as a husky/shepherd mix, but I think he had some lab or border collie mixed in there too. They said he was about a year old, I'd say he was probably between one and two. But he was such a unique dog, and didn't have an ounce of hate or aggression in him. He wouldn't really bark, he would just sorta howl/chortle. He loved to run, loved to chase things, loved to sunbathe and loved to lay with me and give "head licks"...he would literally just sit there and lick the top of my head. When I first got him, I was in the process of moving out of my parents' house and buying my own. So when moving day came, Remi and I suddenly had this house and yard all to ourselves. It was our bachelor pad, and we had the absolute best times there. I'd come home from work and he'd greet me, anxious to go outside, but he was so excited to see me and give me plenty of kisses beforehand.
The next year I met the woman who would end up becoming my wife. She and her daughter, who was 2, ended up moving in with Remi and I and he loved it
. My stepdaughter would sit on his back and they would watch TV together. She was his little friend and would let her do anything she wanted to him. We had several other dogs come into our lives over the next few years, and we eventually ended up moving out to the country about 4 years ago.
Fast forward to 2 years ago, we had a baby. At that time, Remi was probably around 9 or 10. He was starting to get old and grey, starting to slow down more and more, but was still am extremely active dog when he would go outside, or if the other dogs were playing he would jump in. But Remi was usually found just laying on the couch or against a wall somewhere. He liked his rest, but he also loved our new baby girl. She would do the same thing as my stepdaughter used to do...she would lay on him and play with his ears and tail, and he would just lay there and give her kisses. But we began noticing him getting up abruptly sometimes or a low growl periodically, so we would kinda monitor them and not let the baby bother him too much. You could tell Remi loved her, he just needed space sometimes and we tried to make sure we accommodated that. Remi also kinda started getting a little snippy with the other dogs from time to time.
This past Sunday, I had all the dogs (Remi and our 3 year old GSD, along with our 9 year old GSD and her son, a 5 year old GSD) outside for their morning play session before breakfast. The 3 year old is super high strung and I think she accidentally stepped on Remi when she was running by him, as he was just laying by the back door sunning himself. That's literally the moment my life changed forever.
Remi attacked the youngest dog and it wasn't a normal pecking order dog fight, it was a side of him I've never seen in 10 years. He ended up doing some major damage to the younger dog's face which required stitches and staples. The worst part though, was he wouldn't let go. I had to fight him off of her and he bared his teeth at me.
We ended up trying to separate Remi from the rest of the dogs while we did makeshift first aid on the little one (nearest emergency vet is a couple hours away). The worst part about all this is, Remi didn't seem to realize he had done anything wrong. He tore down a baby gate and almost clawd through a door to get back to where the rest of the family was. Like....he just wanted to be with us. It killed me. So I asked my parents if they could keep him overnight until we could get everyone to the vet the next day. Remi loved going to their house and we called it "camp". That's where he would go if we went out of town or something. They would always give him ice cream and take him for drives and he just loved it, so I knew that would be a good temporary solution, but realistically we were weighing our options.
With how suddenly this all happened, I hated to say it but I didn't trust Remi being in the house with the baby. And it was almost impossible to keep him separate at the house because he just flipped out from separation anxiety. We talked to several people we know in the dog community and the general consensus was Remi was in pain...something was going on with him...some sort of underlying reason for him to act this way.
While waiting for my parents to come get him to go to "camp", my wife and I were outside brushing him and noticed a lump on his abdomen we had never noticed before. I would guess that's right in the area the youngest dog stepped as well, right before the fight. Remi was 11, possibly 12 years old, and as soon as I felt that lump...I realized I was likely going to have a decision to make about Remi's life. I held him, I laid on the ground with him and just held him and cried because I knew, realistically, what the next day might hold. My parents came to pick him up and he was so happy....he knew he was going for a ride. He knew he was going to get ice cream.
The next day, my wife took the kids over to see him while I was at work. He had an appointment with the vet that afternoon, so in the meantime they went and spent some time with him. They took a bunch of pictures and videos and sent them all to me. And they got a paint canvas and did Remi's paw prints on it. He looked so happy, but looking back at those pictures...I can see the tiredness in his eyes.
I went home from work and my parents met me at the vet with Remi. We took some pictures and I took him on a little walk outside while we were waiting...but then it was time to go in. I knew...I just knew he wasn't coming back with me. I knew it. My baby girl was there with my parents and I made sure she got to pet him and tell him bye bye before we walked in. She had no idea what was going on but I needed to know she and Remi had that moment.
While talking to the vet we discussed the recent issues. And while examining him, she said Remi definitely was showing some signs of arthritis, but he did act pretty lively for his age...
...but the lump was a "significant" cancerous tumor, about the size of a baseball.
Remi also had occasional seizures, which only started a couple years ago. Maybe one or two a year, if that. It was never anything really concerning because it would only last not even 30 seconds, if that, and he would just kinda be tired for a bit afterward but then back to his normal self. I just chalked it up to old age. But the vet said this all fell in line with a brain tumor. The behavior changes over the last year or so especially, the panting...I just thought he was getting old.
I sat there with Remi and the vet for probably a half hour discussing it. She said Remi was obviously tough, he was very tough...and he was fighting through a lot of pain to not show it to us. I never would have guessed he really had anything wrong. He did it for us. He wanted to stay with us and be a part of our family. He didn't want us to know.
The vet said medical interventions could buy him some time, but ultimately, things were never going to get better. We had reached that point where we were on a downhill slide. I know in my mind it wasn't fair to try to keep him around just for my own comfort.
I cried. I literally held him and just cried. They brought a blanket in and I laid on the floor beside him and just held him and cried. I told him I loved him and how much he meant to me...how thankful I was that I got to enjoy 10 years of my life with him. How much I was going to miss him and that I would never ever forget him. I had to kick the vet out of the room a couple times before I'd let them start the process, because I just needed to be with him, and in that moment I needed him to be with me.
I let them give him the sedative and I just continued to hold him. It was at that moment I realized he knew something was going on, and he was scared. It broke my heart and I'm literally crying just typing this because I could see it in his eyes. He let out a slow whine and I just held him against me and kept telling him I loved him. They vet said it normally took 10 or 15 minutes before they were fairly sedated before the final injection, and gave us that time alone. We laid there for over a half hour before I finally let them give it to him because I just couldn't say goodbye. He was my best friend and I couldn't. I can't. I still can't. It hurts so much every single day. When the vet came in again, I told her we needed to just do it because otherwise I was going to stay there all night with him. He was still somewhat reactive and she said she'd never seen a dog fight it that much. I honestly think Remi knew this was goodbye and he didn't want to let go and it kills me. I held him tight while she gave him the shot and told him I loved him and I was sorry, and I hoped he forgave me.
And then he was gone.
I laid on the floor and held him for another half hour. I covered him up and laid there and just kissed him and cried over him and held him. I smelled him. I held his paws. I did everything I could think of to try to etch a memory of everything about him.
I had him cremated and I got his ashes back yesterday. That made things just slightly better, because he's back home now. But it's still just so hard. Every single day. Every hour. Every minute. Every second. I've barely eaten, barely slept. I cry more than I don't. I didn't know the human body could produce this many tears. My eyes burn from it constantly. I keep expecting him to come walking around the corner. Or when we let the dogs inside, I stand there and wait for him because he was always the last one in, and often had to corralled back in because he loved
being outside. Feeding time is so hard...I used to have a little song I would sing every single time when I was putting the food dishes out about whose bowl was next. And now I can't, because Remi's bowl was basically what the whole thing revolved around. I look at the couch and he's not there. I miss his howl.
How long does this last? Does it ever end? My chest hurts so bad every second of every day
. I will be doing fine and then just break down and start crying out of nowhere because a memory creeps in. I have found myself accidentally calling our other male dog "Remi". He was such a huge part of my life and he's gone. And it hurts worse than I could have ever imagined. I have zero interest in literally anything right now. Projects, hobbies, etc...nope. All I want to do is look at his pictures and watch videos of him over and over. Functioning is so difficult.
"He's just a dog...
No he wasn't. He was my friend. He was like a brother. I used to call him Uncle Remi with the baby. He was my closest friend.
And I'm lost without him.

2023.06.08 18:07 TokkiJK What are your language learning strengths and weaknesses?
So my TL is Korean, and I noticed that I don’t have issues with sentence structures. It feels very natural to me. The pronunciation for the most part, I would say is a lot better than others on my level (or so I was told by a couple different teachers).
My weakness though, is probably vocab. I hate memorizing words. What I do to battle this is try to learn vocab in context. It definitely means I won’t be sitting there and going through a list of 50 words a day. BUT the words I do learn through context, maybe 10 a day or something, I feel that I learn well. And I’ll know how to use them properly, attach the appropriate particles based on what I’m trying to say, and so on.
I know 4759% that if I try and memorize 50 words from some list, I will not remember them and even if a remember some, I will not use them correctly.
I do think if I hear those words a lot through media, then I’m more likely to remember them if I saw it in a list. Even if I didn’t actually know what that word meant initially.
Some people are REALLY good at memorized a long list of vocab. Seriously. A language exchange partner I used to have spoke English really well. She said she used to learn 50-80 new vocab words a day. And she does have a large vocabulary.
I know that won’t work for me but it does for some.
Anyway, what’s your weakness? And strength? And what have you done to battle that?

2023.06.08 18:07 julksterrr Rejected by best friend
I will try to not make this post drawn out, but I'm feeling so incredibly down and I thought maybe someone would have something to say to help me through what I'm feeling. So me (18F) and my best friend (18F) have known eachother for 7 years and after some years of not being too close after she moved schools, we started talking again and got close again about two years ago. When we reconnected, I thought that I may have caught feelings for her, but didn't fully come to terms with this until late 2022.
In March this year, my sister found out about my feelings towards my best friend and made enough jokes to my best friend (suggesting that we should go on a date etc.) that eventually I just couldn't take it and had to tell her how I felt. Her reaction seemed initially hesitant (maybe shocked) but positive. She was down to try and see what happens, but expressed to me that she wasn't 100% sure and needed time to think. At the end of April after talking and hanging out a bit (the dynamic had changed I feel to more flirtatious), she said to me that she couldn't do it and apologised. That already hurt, and I honestly cried like a little baby, but totally respected her feelings.
However in mid-May she told me that she changed her feelings and believed she was self-sabotaging by not allowing herself to be with me, but that I was right for her and she wanted to try (this time telling me that she did have feelings for me and had had them for a while but hid them from me). Though she did clarify that she had a lot on her mind that may complicate the relationship and it's progression if it did happen (I understood and made sure that she didn't feel any pressure and didn't feel rushed). The last few weeks bought me so much joy; we saw eachother a few times, did some cute romantic things and definitely flirted. It felt great, though it didn't go beyond that and we didn't kiss or hold hands (mostly because I didn't know where her boundaries were, and this is also my first time doing anything romantic with anyone).
But to my absolute heartbreak and despair, she told me yesterday that she likes me and has for a while but her own personal struggles (I won't disclose those but it's a lot of things sort of together), aren't allowing her for us to be a thing, because they'll catch up to her in the long-term. I know that she's been crying because of this, so have I. It hurts so fucking much because she is my favourite person in the world, she is my person and I have never known anyone to bring so much joy into my life as her. She's got an absolutely beautiful soul, and she has always been my biggest support. She was there for me through my toughest time, I was there when she was struggling, and I've gotten to know her so much closer in the last year. Not only that she is the most painstakingly beautiful and radiant girl I have ever laid my eyes on. Everything felt so right and I was so happy, and now that has been torn away from me twice, and I can't bare to talk to her, but talking to her has always been one of the only things to bring any meaning to my day.
I just need help with my feelings. Did I fall in love with someone I shouldn't have had feelings for? Why does it hurt so much? And why does a part of me wish that maybe, someday in the future we will try this again and it will work out? Am I wrong for feeling what I'm feeling? God it just hurts so much and I don't know what to do to pick myself up from this and recover :(

2023.06.08 18:02 A_aVeRaGe_XbOx_GaMeR FB photos, in an album that I made public, STILL NOT showing up in "view as" public mode at first glance?
This is annoying the living hell outta me. Facebook use to be so easy and simple, to navigate and change crap in your timeline settings, before meta or someone (who knows) switched up the looks and fonts and views ect ect ect...
I've had a facebook profile off and on throughout my 20's and now 30's. I'm not stupid, computers come secondhand to me, and I've already played with the privacy settings on the desktop version of facebook. I've looked high and low in my timeline settings...renamed folders and switched them from public to private back to public again...looked some more in the privacy settings. No luck. My most recent uploaded photos (pictures that are public AND are in a public folder) are not showing up in the "view as" public mode, at least at first glance...
To be clear I'm not talking about cover or profile pics. Soooo basically what I mean is, I made these photos and one particular folder public on purpose, so that at first glance anyone I'm not friends with can see them without being friends with me. When I click "view as" in public mode, all it shows me on my main timeline's page-view before clicking on anything else, is ONLY my profile and cover photos? The heck?!!!!! When I click on the photos tab or whatever on my timeline (while still in "view as" public mode) THEN it will show me the folder with the photos in it...but not before....doesn't show the photos until you actually physically click on the dang folder. I'm talking about being able to see them featured on my timeline I guess before anyone has befriended me.
I've used facebook long enough, to know that like 10 years ago or so I never had this problem occur. Public was public, friends only was friends only, and private was private. That's what the "view as" feature is literally for.
Once again...thee only reason I specifically made this particular folder and it's pictures public, was so that someone who doesn't know me could see that it's me when viewing my timeline, without having to click on my photos tab.
Sorry that was so much junk I typed out, but I am trying to explain exactly what's going on here. Does any super uber facebook or meta or computer nerd haha know just how to fix this?????
I've tried everything already.

While Paramount has announced no streaming plans at this time, big-budget blockbusters like Transformers: Rise of the Beasts typically become available on streaming roughly ninety days after their theatrical run begins. Given that the Transformers franchise rights currently belong to Paramount Pictures, it's more than likely that we'll see the next Transformers film come to Paramount+ once the movie decides to indulge in a streaming release. While not every film from the franchise is currently available on the service, it's hard to imagine that Paramount wouldn't put a big recent release like this onto their own service.
No, Transformers Rise of the Beasts is not yet streaming, so you’ll need to zoom your way to the nearest cinema if you want to see it. We’re sure that you’ll be able to stream Transformers Rise of the Beasts eventually, but Paramount has made it exclusive to cinemas for now.

Transformers Rise of the Beasts is too busy shaking cinema walls to be on Netflix just yet. But we’ll keep an eye on the streamer’s catalog and let you know if the new Transformers outing does show up in the future. The streaming giant has a massive catalog of television shows and movies, but it does not include 'Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.' We recommend our readers watch other dark fantasy films like 'The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.'
Is Transformers: Rise of the Beasts coming to Disney Plus?
Transformers Rise of the Beasts is not on Disney Plus, and we doubt it will end up there any time soon. The new Transformers movie is a Paramount production, so it’s not likely to end up on the streaming arm of a rival studio. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, the latest installment in the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts franchise, is coming to Disney+ on July 9th! The simple answer is, probably not, since Paramount Pictures make “Transformers” films, and so this means that the new movie will be streaming exclusively on Paramount+, following a theatrical and digital release.
However, the previous “Transformers” films are spread around a number of different streaming services, depending on what country you are in, due to long-running contracts between the studios and streaming platforms.
Is Transformers: Rise of the Beasts on Amazon Prime?
We think Transformers Rise of the Beasts will be available on Prime Video before the end of 2023, but it’s not there yet. The other Transformers movies are available to rent or purchase on the Prime Video platform. Amazon Prime's current catalog does not include 'Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.' However, the film may eventually release on the platform as video-on-demand in the coming months.fantasy movies on Amazon Prime's official website. Viewers who are looking for something similar can watch the original show 'Dororo.'
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Will Stream On Paramount+
Transformers: Rise of the Beast is expected to be available to watch via streaming on Paramount Plus by September 9, 2023. Paramount+ is where Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will stream upon its release. Paramount has been in charge of the Transformers movie franchise since it began in 2007 and thus is responsible for releasing every entry in theaters. While the studio might have previously sent its movies to other streaming services like Netflix, the shift to focus more on the development of its own streaming service Paramount+ has changed this tactic. That is why Paramount has released its other major recent blockbusters like Top Gun: Maverick or Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves on Paramount+ after their theatrical runs conclude.
Want to know how to watch the Transformers movies in order before Rise of the Beasts roars into theaters? You've come to the right place. The seventh entry in Paramount Pictures' Transformers film franchise arrives in cinemas worldwide on Friday, June 9, so you don't have much time left to watch its predecessors at home. But, if you're planning to cram them all in before catching Transformers: Rise of the Beasts this weekend, we're here to help you work out how to watch them in chronological and release date order, and we'll also tell you which of the world's best streaming services have them as part of their movie libraries.
So, if you're ready to be reunited with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and company – and get the lowdown on every Transformers film to be released so far – read on.
Here's How and Where You Can Watch All of the Transformers movies
The best place to start is finding out where you can watch all of the Transformers movies in order in the comfort of your own home. If you're subscribed to Paramount Plus, that's your answer – well, for five of the six films, anyway. Paramount's primary streaming platform is home to the Michael Bay-directed trilogy – Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The streamer's film library is also home to the two Mark Wahlberg-starring flicks, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Transformers: The Last Knight.
● Transformers (released on July 3, 2007)
● Revenge of the Fallen (released on June 24, 2009)
● Dark of the Moon (released on June 29, 2011)
● Age of Extinction (released on June 27, 2014)
● The Last Knight (released on June 21, 2017)
● Bumblebee (released on Dec. 21, 2018)
Potential users looking to watch this quintet of movies will want to check out our Paramount Plus price guide to see how much it costs to sign up. Alternatively, you can get the lowdown on whether a Paramount Plus free trial is available, so you can try the service out without paying any money to stream the movies. Unfortunately for Paramount Plus UK and Australian-based users, the sixth entry in the action sci-fi franchise, 2018's Bumblebee, isn't available on British shores as part of the package.
US subscribers can catch Bumblebee on Paramount Plus (and Fubo, for what it's worth), but UK and Australian fans will have to look elsewhere to get the full Transformers movies in order experience. Here's where UK and Australian viewers can watch Bumblebee instead:
● Australia – rent or buy via the Amazon, Apple TV Google Play, Microsoft, or YouTube stores
● UK – rent or buy via the Amazon, Apple TV, Google Play, Microsoft, Rakuten, Sky, or YouTube stores
Will Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Be On HBO Max?
No, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Paramount Pictures movie. Last year, the company released its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.
Disney may have made billions with last year’s mega-blockbuster Avatar: The Way of Water, but for now it’s going to share the streaming success. The Steven Caple Jr. directed sequel is coming to streaming on September 11 and though the film was distributed by Disney, Disney+ won’t be the only place to see it. You can see it there as well as Max, aka HBO Max.
Is Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new animation movie Transformers: Rise of the Beasts on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.
No, 'Transformers: Rise of the Beasts' is unavailable on Hulu. People who have a subscription to the platform can enjoy 'Afro Samurai Resurrection' or 'Ninja Scroll.'
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Release in the US
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts hits theaters on June 9, 2023. Tickets to see the film at your local movie theater are available online here. The film is being released in a wide release so you can watch it in person.

2023.06.08 18:01 amireallyreal The Protest, The Blackout, and r/BestofRedditorUpdates [NEW UPDATE]
Greetings, members of BestofRedditorUpdates
By now you have probably heard a lot about The Open Letter about API Pricing
. Some of your favorite subreddits
may have signed up to protest. When we cross-posted the letter, plenty of people were confused about what API even is, how this pricing would impact them, and why it was worth talking about. Since then, there have been a number of posts about this very subject, all explaining better than we could. Subreddits like explainlikeimfive
have highlighted in an easy way to understand what API is
and why this is change is a problem
. AskHistorians have explained in detail why so many Mods are upset
and, frankly, disillusioned, in the wake of the Admin announcement.
To a lot of people, the API changes are not a big deal.
If you use the Official Apps and have no issue navigating it, that’s great. You may not have known that third party apps existed, or why people prefer them. If you’re wondering why people can’t just use the official app, we can acknowledge that for many users it is simply a personal preference. They’re used to it (some of us have been using them for years before there was ever an Official App) or they might simply prefer it because of the designs and features. If you’re interested in a visual representation of why so many prefer third party apps, please check this bestof
comment out for a side-by-side comparison.
For mods, the mod tool support of these third parties largely makes our jobs much easier, which keeps the communities we all love safer. On a third party app, we can accomplish in two clicks what would take the Official App five. This efficiency means we can address more problems in the community in a more timely manner.
If you’re thinking to yourself, “If these apps are making a profit, Reddit deserves a cut!” we do agree. What we take issue with is that their API is being valued at 10-20x over what other similar services do, to the point where almost every app has released some kind
of statement that indicates these changes will kill their apps
. I could link to more statements like that, but you get the idea.
Before you ask “why can’t they just run ads to offset those costs”, Reddit has already decided this will not be an option for third party apps. One thing to be aware of as well is that even if
a third party app manages to survive July 1st through a subscription based model alone, those apps will not
have all the same content as the Official App. Namely, despite paying for the privilege of having a choice, NSFW content will be unavailable and invisible to those users.
If you’re thinking "well, I'm fine, I only use the mobile website via my chosen mobile browser" (chrome, mozilla, etc), you should be aware that Reddit has already been testing functions which eliminate mobile web browsing
, and there is no guarantee that your preferred method of using Reddit won’t be next.
Limiting user choice, charging exorbitant and predatory fees, and refusing to communicate, are all significant problems that the BoRU team takes issue with. However, the one we find most egregious is what this change will do to members of Reddit’s blind community.
How are blind Redditors impacted by this decision?
In short, Reddit’s Official Apps leave a lot to be desired at best, and are barely functional at worst. The app on iOS has incorrectly labeled controls, doesn’t always work with swipe, and not all functions can be accessed. For blind moderators, it can be difficult to impossible to find the moderation functions necessary to moderate, and customizing layouts to better suit their needs or make the app easier to navigate is similarly difficult to impossible. Third party apps have addressed
many of these types of issues because Reddit won’t, giving these underserved communities a voice that Reddit seems to have no problem taking away.
You might ask yourself how blind users navigated Reddit before there were apps, and the answer is that it didn’t always used to be this way
, but it has certainly always had accessibility issues.
In fact, discussions about accessibility
have been going on for months, if not years. Just a few months ago, Reddit received a free consultation
to make their mobile layout more accessible. Reddit did not follow up
privately or publicly until the protest’s momentum started to build
. Even after numerous, far more recent interactions with the Admin, there seems to be little progress or commitment concerning these issues. This type of interaction is exactly why we the BoRU mod team feel that Reddit is not making accessibility a priority.
Subreddits like blind
are vital for the visually impaired in various stages of blindness, providing not just a source of communal support, but insights, strategies, and resources to navigate their new and changing lives. In the wake of Reddit's changes, subreddits like blind
will be forced to go dark, leaving an already overlooked group without the invaluable support they both need and deserve.
These changes will also significantly impact volunteer run support subreddits such as transcribersofreddit
, which serve to allow visually impaired Redditors to read text images, and receive descriptions of visual content such as videos and images. These volunteers are indispensable to the blind community, because Reddit is the only social media website with no support for alternative text. As visually impaired Redditors are forced to use an app that is not designed with accessibility in mind, these communities will shrink, wither, and may cease to exist. (See this video
for more details on this subject).
For many of us, third party apps are a choice or a preference, but they are an absolute necessity for the visually impaired. The BoRU team is of the opinion that pricing these apps out of existence before their own app is WCAG compliant is nothing short of passive discrimination.
The mod team of BoRU, and many others, feel that July 1st is an unrealistic timeline to make all the changes necessary to make their App accessible. At this point, the only reasonable course of action is for Reddit to publish a public list of key results that they are committed to addressing, and guarantee that third party functionality will be left unchanged until they do.
Here at BoRU we take steps to try and ensure our content is accessible. We ask our contributors to provide image descriptions and to transcribe text images. Sometimes transcribing those text images can take significant time, especially when those images are numerous multi-image text exchanges. Our OPs have never complained when we make that request, even though it is not an official requirement. We find it inexcusable that Reddit cannot do the bare minimum to ensure their visually impaired users have a voice and community.
Frankly, disabled individuals are often expected to pay a premium for the same basic things everyone else uses and enjoys for free. Visually impaired Redditors deserve equal access
, and even if third party apps survive, they will not receive it. Those users will not have access to all of the content and features that the rest of Reddit will. Remember, NSFW content will be unavailable to regular users
on third party apps, and yes, disabled people like porn too!
Some of our Mod team do use third party apps, both for casual browsing and for moderation. Others don’t. For us, this is not just about our personal preferences; it is about standing in opposition to ableism and making sure others have a voice.
We have had many comments and modmails asking about the position of BoRU’s modteam. We wanted to discuss these matters internally ourselves first, to make sure we were on the same page before we made any sort of announcement. Now that we have:
The mod team of BestofRedditorUpdates is in agreement that we should join the blackout on June 12th.
We are prepared to remain blacked out for a minimum
of 48 hours. This means that no one will be able to access any BoRU content until the blackout is over. In standing up for the voices of others, however, we don’t want to strip away the voices of our community. So now we want to hear from you
. If you support us in this decision, please share and upvote this post, and comment with your support.
How long will BoRU’s blackout last? Pending further developments, after 48 hours we will reassess the situation, taking into account what new statements have been released, how the protest is evolving, and what our users want.

2023.06.08 18:00 jbug5j Kindergarten Fears
My son is 5 and a half. At the moment he cant go to the bathroom without being distracted. Pooping is a nightmare because he just sings/talks to himself and plays with whatever he can touch. 75% of the time toilet paper ends up rolling around the floor. He is unable to focus long enough to poop and be done. I am so scared that he will end up getting in trouble every bathroom break. Especially if he goes by himself. His school is a small private school, one class per grade, but still. Every step of the process means another instance where he will get distracted. I have no idea how to help him just focus on gong to the bathroom alone.
I hate to admit that I end up yelling every time he's pooping to just please focus. It doesn't help that "I dont want to see my poop" and "EEEWWW" happens when he needs to wipe. Please tell me im not alone!!!! Does anyone have any tips to help make bathroom trips less stressful????
EDIT TO ADD: Washing hands is also a whole thing bc water is fun to splash in and yeah...

2023.06.08 17:59 Traditional-Heat5222 How long does it take to get a Makati Health Clearance Certificate?
Ask lang po gaano katagal inabot yung pag approve ng application nyo for Makati Health Clearance Certificate sa dito https://makati.healthcert.ph/
? It's been a week since I applied and advice lang po sa akin is to wait for their email/message. Done na po ako sa medical and uploaded naman na by an accredited facility. Fit to work naman din po. Parang they don't accommodate naman kasi na pumunta sa city hall since online na nga po ang application nito and online na lahat ng procedures.
Thank you po in advance sa sagot. God bless us all!

2023.06.08 17:58 Sugarloaf101 My M29 partner F34. Broke up just over a month ago, I need advice on how to be a better person and understand what happened
This is gonna be a long and probably confusing post, trying to get my thoughts on paper or write them out just seems impossible at this point
My ex gf(34) and I M(29) broke up just under 5 weeks ago. We were in a LDR for 8 months and I fell hard in love with her
She was married and I was single, I never pursued her because of this. Until one night we were hanging out on a discord call with friends and she messaged me telling me how attractive she thinks I am, I at first thought she was messing around and thought nothing of it until a few more messages, then she came on very hard sexually. So I decided to say fuck it and go along with it cause i always found her attractive and we vibed. (I regret it everyday, at the time I didn't care about her marriage and I know how shitty I am for it, karma has well and truly done what it needed to do to me) this continued for a couple weeks, it was highly sexual, the messages, voice notes, videos, pictures and calls. This goes on for a couple weeks and then she started to talk about how she was feeling towards me, she would call me her twin flame, say things like she's never connected with anyone the way she does me etc. I always rejected the talk of feelings because I didn't want to go there. I didn't want to catch feelings as this was purely sexual to me. Fast forward a couple more weeks and at this point we have been talking a fuck ton, about very personal things, our childhoods, our life, bonded over music, games and whatnot. She continued to push her feelings for me and I continued to keep my guard up because I didn't want to end up in this position I am now in. She told me she was going to divorce her husband, I never commented or gave advice on it because lt was not my place to do so. I did tell her to heal from her divorce, take time for herself and find herself again. She agreed and wanted to do so, so she could be fully available to me. I know at this point we had already cheated and destroyed another man but I atleast respected her for wanting to heal. She filed for divorce and we continued to talk but then the subject of love came up. I told her I will not go there until me and her are in person and know how it really feels, she agreed but then one week goes by and she tells me she is in love with me. I was falling for her and knew how I felt but wanted us to do so in person. We then became a couple... I know how fucked up it is, I really do.
She would tell me weird things like men always hitting on her, always trying to get with her, send me screenshot of guys non stop bothering her. I never asked for these things, so It made me feel weird but I never communicated it, which I know is my fault and something I've learnt. At this point we were dating and she would complain of this one guy non stop bothering her and she can't get rid of him. I told her just tell the dude you're with your bf and he will probably back off, I was not happy with her over this because it felt like she was hiding me. She apologised and we moved forward with it, then she started lying about being in other guys streams. I called her out on her lies and she would always proceed to call me jealous and insecure, the thing that hurt the most was after our blowup she would go back into that guys stream and give him money. Felt like a kick in the gut. Was there jealousy there? Yes? I sat with it for a while to understand why I was being jealous and all I could think about was the amount of times she would tell me about different men trying to get with her and the little lies she would come up with, i could never prove she was lying and i know it made me sounds crqzy and possesive but i know what i saw and i know what my gut was telling me. I'm normally not a jealous man. This would happen a few times and it hurt me but I bottled it up and it came out in the wrong way. That's on me... another example is when she mentioned this man messaging her just after her divorce, wanting to take her out etc. She would shit talk this guy to me, call him creepy and whatnot. One day we were laying down and I look over to her, I glanced at her phone and here is the same guy she is calling a creep messaging her. I was furious, instead of confronting her I gave the silent treatment, immature of me I know but I just didn't know how to deal with what my gut was telling me, I rejected it all and refused to believe that this person I'm in love with is lying to me and God knows what else.
She also told me about a time her best friends husband tried to kiss her. Again, I dont know why she told me this but hey ho. She also told me how they both cheated on one another many times. She brought me to that house, I remember the four of us chilling in their garage having a drink, laughs and a smoke. Her friend showed me photos of a lake they all go to in the summer. As we left to head back home my gf goes on to tell me how she isn't happy with her friend, she didn't like the way she leaned over me to show photos. Then went on to say how I am her friends type and all this bullshit. I told her to take that up with her friend and leave me the fuck out of this cause I did nothing nore even notice something like that. We had a massive argument over it. Wasn't the first time she got jealous over another woman. I dont mind jealousy, i think its a normal reaction to have but as long as it doesnt become unhealthy and controlling, the other ones were minor but questions were asked about certain women liking photos on my Instagram. One I went on a date with once and the other who I worked with. That's it, I was happy to say who these people were and what they meant to me. I had nothing to hide. Time goes on and she flew over to me (London) for my birthday. We argued that night too and she threatened to leave me, I told her if she ever threatens to do so again, I will leave her as I found it cruel to put that one someone. Writing this out I realise how toxic this all was. Which hits me hard because I felt like I was in love and we connected so well. I wish I communicated how I felt better, I wish I didn't do what I did and I wish I was given a fair chance to be in love. I am also at fault for this I'm fully aware.
Fast forward to few weeks ago we have a massive row again because I called her out on her lies, she called me a psycho and too possessive. I tried to explain its not that you are in another man's stream, it's the fact that you lie about it and I don't know why, she then goes on to tell me im only ever comfortable when she goes to a her other best friends house, i said yes because she seemed level headed and honest, the reason i felt uncomfortable with her going to her other friends house was because of them doing cocaine in there, which she had told me about but it was all made out to be like i was jealous because the husband tried to kiss her. It had fuck all to do with that, its drugs and she knew how i felt about drugs. But I was starting to feel like I may genuinely be highly jealous and insecure. I dont know if that's because she has made me feel that way or I am like that. I've worked hard these last 2 months to make sure that's not the case. Anyway she forgave me and we moved forward, until 3 weeks later she said this isn't working. I begged, I pleaded and I didn't understand why I was given this chance and then had it snatched from me when I was doing everything I can to work on myself
She went on to say she wants to heal because she had just gotten out of an 11 year relationship, and be by herself. I found it hard to believe considering that's what she should've done 8 months ago, like we said. Then she proceeds to tell me its because of the hurt I caused her that night a few weeks ago when we argued. I accused her of lying, which she was.i didn't verbally assault or call her names I just asked her to tell me what is going on. We were intoxicated and I just had enough of the little lies. I know that is for me to work on and put right, I will accept anything and everything I've done wrong these last 8 months. I realise I'm a shitty person and whatever came from this relationship I deserved. But I feel like I was never given a chance considering how we started. I know I never should've got with a person that was married. The trust was not there because of it but still i pushed how i felt aside and rejected my gut feelings. I tried everything to make sure we didn't do that but words and time spent together. I fell in love
Not even two weeks went by and I found out she is already dating. I knew this would happen cause she done it to her husband, who the fuck am I right? I aint special. But I'm hurting so much, my confidence is shattered and I'm lost. She said she wanted space but keeps reaching out to me, told me she will always love me and how a piece of her heart will always belong to me. Its been 5 weeks and she still reaches out, not as frequent but will send me a message saying I really do want you yo be happy, I ignored her cause seeing her face just brings me to tears, she brought up how i am ignoring her messages and i told her if she wants to talk then let me know. She then messaged me saying she hopes I'm alright, I replied saying I'm alright thanks, yourself? My heart tells me to let her go, remove her from my socials and really start to heal but I can't let go and it's killing me
I know I deserve to feel how her husband felt when she moved on straight away. I get that but I don't think I deserved the emotional abuse here, I think its emotional abuse. I'm just so confused and trying to figure it out so I can learn from this
There will be things I have forgotten or not put in because the post is long enough but if there are any questions I will answer them. I dont want this to come across as me shitting on her and blaming her for everything. I know I had my part in this and I fucked up in so many ways but I cant escape the feeling of being emotionally abused here

2023.06.08 17:58 Specialist_Wafer7375 Bad Influence is Amazing!
I’m literally on episode 71 of 78 already and I started like 4-5 days ago. Its so worth it omg. They have the cliche bad boy and popular girl trope, but they do it so well. The guy isn’t a total douche bag, he actually has a reason for a lot of the shit he does. The drama is amazing, theres multiple storylines. The characters are complex…trust me. If you like romance and drama, read this. I wanted to share how good it was to me, because I’ve been searching for a story for so long thats actually good. It seems like lately Episode is nothing but bad mafia stories. Or if a story has a good plot line, its executed poorly. This story is just amazing. With that being said, anyone have any more stories like this?
