2023.06.10 23:56 Narrow-Feeling-4375 Gabapentin for travel

Hi!! My 5lb cat was given 2 does of gabapentin to trial before a flight. Unfortunately she would not eat the first one in a treat so I gave her the second one (they are both the same dose)
My vet is closed but I am curious as to why they would recommend giving a dose the night before a stressful event and 2 hours before a stressful event? Is this just to allow my cat to feel the full sedation effects?
I am not by any means questioning my vets advice, I fully trust her 100% im just curious what the first dose is for!
Thank you :)

2023.06.10 23:55 abondurant21 Need to rant

So I just need to tell someone about this. I refuse to talk to the person I actually need to talk to until after the weekend is over.
So I work in a restaurant that delivers food, and sometimes customers tip the people in store, as well. Sometimes if a customer tips a driver really well (like 20 dollars or more), the driver will decide to share some of that tip with the people that made the order.
Well, a couple of people have started to get greedy. Whenever a driver has a delivery with a big tip, they'll demand that the driver split the tip with them a certain way. Now keep in mind that the drivers make, like, 3-5 dollars less than people in store, and that's because the drivers also get tips. So with the people in store making 12 an hour or more and the drivers making less than 10 no matter how long they've been working here, the drivers make most of their wages from their tips.
Not just that, but they've also gotten greedy with tips they get in-store. Each shift we work should only be closed down once per shift, right? Apparently that's wrong. The greedy coworkers have decided that they want the shift closed down again before they leave so that they can get the tips that have been left in the last hour (which is like 3 dollars btw). And keep in mind, we never shut down the morning shift twice before. They've only started doing that a month ago.
So because I've seen what's been going on and I know how the drivers felt on the matter, I contacted the franchise owner. The only reason I didn't contact the general manager is because he doesn't really care unless it affects him in any way. And I've spoken with the AGM, but he would've had to speak to the GM first. So, I contacted the owner.
I told him I didn't want to sound like a snitching child for bringing this up, but these things have been going on for a bit. The drivers are, understandably, getting resentful because of it, and I know it's only going to get worse unless he puts an end to it. I told him I understand both sides of the situation, but I sympathize with the drivers more because they still have to upkeep their vehicles, and cars are expensive. What the greedy coworkers are doing borders on illegal.
Well, I got a response. The owner said he'll put something in place to prevent this situation and thanked me for bringing it up to him. I told him it was no problem, but that I would appreciate it if he wouldn't mention that I'm the one that brought it up, my reason being that if word got out to those greedy coworkers, they would have more issues with me than they already have. And I know that if they know, it's gonna cause some serious backlash.
But what I really want to know is if I did the right thing. In my heart, I had the best intentions, but I know that's not how others are gonna see it

2023.06.10 23:55 jewel_flip Struggling Today

I usually don’t post but today is one of those days where I feel more alone than I have in some time. I’m on short term disability starting next week to try and get my mental health back in shape.
This year has been darker than most, lost three family members so far with another one terminal and one in long term care. I have been trying to carry the load of life/home/work and use all the tools in my kit but it’s really becoming difficult.
I woke up this morning with plans to meet up with friends later and try and get out of my head. Did my gratitudes, meditation, work out and then found out the plans were cancelled. They were heading to an event for someone I’ve never met so it’s fair I guess. Reached out to a friend I was supposed to meet up with tomorrow to confirm and he is now also unavailable. Again I guess a fair reason but still hurts to happen twice in a row.
I feel like the common denominator here and despite so much self work I find myself just wanting to push everyone away. I’m trying so hard to keep a positive attitude in spite of the death and difficulties and having my positive social interactions cut off at the knees I’m just here in my head. I feel unwanted and apart from the rest of the neurotypical humans.
I’m trying to self parent and redirect my energy, but the voice in my head just keeps doubling down on the “you’re alone because you’re just not worth being friends with or making a priority”.
This is the part where the anger comes out of the hurt and I just want to ghost everyone. Block, delete, and go. I’m the friend who will stop everything when I know someone isn’t doing well mentally and to have it unreciprocated can hurt a lot. Gotta love working around an anxious attachment style. So rather than send passive aggressive texts back to people, or go scorched earth, I’m sharing the feelings here hoping they will pass and I can squeeze a happy vibe back into this day somewhere.
I wish I hadn’t had the things happen that led me to be the way I am and I wish I had more resiliency against disappointment where people are concerned. It just makes me feel so resentful because these are all the same people who would get upset at me if the situation was reversed.
Not really sure what I need right now: advice, commiseration, support. I feel insane for being this hurt but I have a chance to leave town entirely with this disability leave and the petty childish me wants to just vanish and start life somewhere else without saying a word.
Anyone have any exercises to break out of this self talk loop and reduce the anger I’m feeling towards these friends?

2023.06.10 23:55 chellllz Am I (27F) taking advantage of my dad by living and working for him?

So lately this has been weighing on my mind and I really need some advice!
Some backstory, I'm a single mom of an almost 4 year old. His dad and I split almost 2 years ago. At the time, my ex and I had just moved in with my dad to (what I thought) save for a house, but we ended up splitting up shortly after. It worked out for the best because I just stayed living with my dad. At the time, I managed a small local catering and events company. I didn't make a ton, but I did enjoy the work and they were very flexible with the schedule as I was (and still am) doing all the childcare. I made enough to cover my car payment, insurance, and daycare and thats it. My ex now lives in another state and comes around ever couple of months for a day or so.
About 3 years ago, my dad started his own company and over the years it's gotten moderately successful, enough to keep him comfortable. He started having too much to do so I started helping him in my spare time. This went on for several months until I quit my job in December of last year and started full time for him. I now make more (not a lot more as I don't need much right now since I live with him. I dont need a huge salary so why waste the company money) and I work from home and have even more flexibility when it comes to my son getting sick or something. (Which happens like once a month because of day care lol)
On top of all that, I obviously rely heavily on my dad's help with my son. We live together, he's always here and he's very involved with my son. He usually takes him out for the day every Sunday so I can do housework or other stuff I need to do. I'm obviously very grateful for the help and I'm so happy they have such a close relationship.
However, I want to get my own place. I want to feel like I'm actually parenting my son on my own. I feel guilty for relying on my dad so heavily. Don't get me wrong, I love my dad, but we're together 24/7. We do everything together and both work from home and it's a lot.
We've talked about it, he knows I want my own place and will help me buy it by giving me a bonus at the end of the year. Something I shouldn't feel guilty for because in reality, I don't make much, especially for the scale of my job. It would basically be a bonus on the profit of the company we run together. But that just feels like I'm relying even more on my dad and taking advantage of him.
I've thought about getting a different job, a friend of mine even had a position open up at her work that she was hiring for and wanted me to apply. I talked to my dad about it and he was open to it if I wanted to do it, but was obviously a bit upset I didn't want to keep working with him and mentioned I'd have to find a replacement for my job. I ended up not applying for the position.
I honestly believe my dad likes that my son and I live with him. He likes being so involved with my son and seeing him all the time. He likes that I work with him and we have a family business we run together and I honestly like the work too.
He's even recently been looking on homes we could buy together but I cannot live with him forever. That's crazy right? I do eventually want to meet someone and get married but I can't really date at the moment. I feel guilty when I'm not here to watch my son or put him to sleep, especially since I already rely on my dad so much.
My brother and sister are both pretty successful on their own. My brother is doctor and my sister runs a high volume store in the mall. They've never said anything to me about my situation and how much I rely on our dad, but my sister in law recently mentioned something to me. She said she felt bad for how much my dad helps with my son (the only grandkid). I asked if she felt like I relied on him too much and she just said "well it's only you, if you had a partner you wouldn't need him as much". Which I honestly don't know how to take. I don't think she meant it maliciously, but it does make me wonder what they think of my situation. And honestly I just feel a little stuck at the moment.
So, what do you guys think? Am I taking advantage of my dad? Should I try to find a different job and separate our lives a bit? Should I feel guilty for basically letting him provide for not only me, but also my son, even though I technically work for it? Is it weird that I'm 27 and still living with my dad and relying heavily on him, especially when I have a son of my own?

2023.06.10 23:55 teamcatfish Are we in the right situation to enter to explore Polyamory.

My ex and I (both single and in our mid 30s) have now known each other for almost 8 years. We dated for 3.5 years (2016 - 2019) before I ended things. From that moment we have remained steadfast friends (we both regularly say that we are each others best friends). Throughout the years we have fallen into situations where we have slept together, and then reverted back to our traditional friendship. We did attempt to date again after late 2021, which was great for 6 months before we broke up again (issues outlined later in this story). Since then we have both been on our own significant personal growth journeys, me struggling with an ADHD diagnosis along with going back to therapy to delve into some childhood traumas. For her, she has done a tonne of work into her own personal growth around setting boundaries (learning to put herself first before helping others), communication and not being afraid to pursue her own path regardless of other people’s thoughts.
Throughout all of this we have both been each others biggest supporters, always available to each other through this all.
Recently, we both have been seeing a therapist together to delve into our conflicts from our past relationships and address the old negative feelings that would resurface from time to time. This was a great experience for us both and has allowed us to both take our communication to the next level as we peeled back the layers of hurt by learning and understanding what the other may have been experiencing / been through during those moments of conflict.
During one of these sessions recently, she said that she is bisexual and wants her next relationship to be with a woman. She has been with women before, but this was her defining it and owning it (as prior to this moment, i was one of a very few people who knew this). After the session, we were talking and I admitted that i had growing feelings for her that were becoming stronger as we progressed through our sessions. Rather than hiding it (as i would before) our new-found transparency allowed us to have this conversation and we talked it through, but she was very clear about wanting to explore this new path.
A few days after this conversation, she reached out and opened the conversation with how she had been feeling extremely horny recently, and wanted to know if I’d be open to some casual sex. I was initially hesitant, but after some thought I agreed as long as we set some boundaries.
I had a gardening course that was coming up over a weekend, and she signed up and joined and we agreed that the weekend away would be the moment to kick off a sexy weekend away.
The weekend came quickly and the tension was palpable. From the first moment to the last, it was incredible. This newfound communication and openness allowed for some of the hottest and freakiest sex we’ve both ever had. We pushed ourselves to our limits (which included her wanting to be dominated, which had never happened before) and in between the hot sex we would lay around and talk about anything and everything. Mostly, about things that we never shared either in our relationships or even during our friendships. Three of the things that came up were:
  1. Her attraction to women wasn’t new but after a psychedelic experience in which she was able to feel her connection to all women. She strongly feels that she wants the time and space to explore the softness and sensuality that only another woman can bring.
  2. That, regardless of her new path that she has always loved me, and always will. Her openness and sexual expressiveness was her way of physically showing me how much she loves and cares for me. Her attraction to me is always there and that helped me to understand and process where I fit into everything.
  3. The third was understand that her fears were not around dating me, but around the fear of expectation. Relationships come with labels and expectations and she wants to be free from all of that so that she can freely explore her relationships (both sexual and romantic) with women.
She talked extensively about her fantasies of having a threesome with myself and another woman. Towards the end of the weekend I asked her whether what she wants is closer to polyamory. She said she hadn’t thought about it. I said I had before, since my pursued relationships post our breakup never amounted to much in comparison to the depth of feelings I have towards her. I have never wanted to get married, or have kids and over the past few years I have been more into casual encounters, never really meeting anyone I wanted to date exclusively. I remember laughing and saying something along the lines of ‘wouldn’t it be a perfect situation if I could have your love, continue to fuck you silly, while allowing you the freedom to go out and explore relationships with women’.
She looked at me, I looked at her and we both laughed. Why not? The more I thought about it, the more it began to make sense. We’re not jealous lovers. We discussed what we’d both want from this situation. My desires would be to be the only guy she fucked while being free to pursue other women. For her, she wants the freedom to explore hookups and relationships with women, but to do this from the safety and understanding of ‘us’. A place of reciprocated love, supported by amazing communication and exploration.
It’s not easy to get this all across. There’s the potential for this to be amazing, but with obvious risks. The more we talk about it, the more I’m opening up to the idea, but wanted some input from you ‘internet experts’.

2023.06.10 23:54 Neurostorming My [30F] father [57M] and (step) Mom [55F] won’t keep my daughter [1F] overnight without condition

I’m currently in a conflict with my parents, and I’m not really sure how to move forward.
My parents moved back to my state after a 16 year absence this year. It’s been pretty great to have them back, and we’ve all been enjoying more family time together. I took their move pretty hard as a teen, as my biological Mom was an alcoholic who wasn’t in a good place, and she had primary custody. Our relationship has always been a little conditional on their part, but overall we recovered in my twenties and became close.
I’m currently pregnant with my second child. I have a one year old who was born in a traumatic way after a lengthy hospitalization due to severe pre-eclampsia. My husband and I knew that it was possible for me to have a reoccurrence of this medical issue during this pregnancy, so early on we talked with my parents about being available to watch our daughter in an emergent situation. They assured me that they’d make themselves available.
Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia two days ago. After diagnosis I sent a text out to our immediate family letting them know what the situation was medically, that we expect to deliver prematurely, and at this juncture the goal is just to get to 34 weeks gestation for delivery. We asked everyone to please reply if contacted in the middle of the night as any midnight contact meant that we were trying to find a safe place to have our daughter stay the night if our first contact (my parents) aren’t available or picking up the phone.
My Mom called me today while she was riding shot-gun with my Dad. She told me she could only offer Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays for overnight stays because of the health of their dog. They have a 9lb Maltese dog who is 14 years old and in end-stage heart failure. She explained that the dog has to be walked several times a day, and she just doesn’t think that she’ll be able to carry the dog and push my daughter in the stroller. “What if it rains?” she said, “How will I carry the umbrella, the dog, and push a stroller?” My Mom said that my Dad couldn’t call off of work to help with my daughter because he’s in his first year with the new company, but dude is a chemist with 35 years of experience and a great work history. He’s not exactly on the chopping block, and calling out of work because your kid is having life threatening pregnancy complications sounds like a pretty good reason.
I tried to keep my cool, but it was a struggle. I am facing potential literal life and death situation, and my parents’ primary concern is their Maltese and my Dad’s PTO. I didn’t pretend to be understanding, and I accused them of having out of wack priorities and being shitty parents.
Fortunately my father-in-law has volunteered to make himself available at any hour in the event of an emergent and will be bringing his elderly dog to our house so our daughter can be comfortable in her own home while I’m hospitalized. The child care issue is solved now, but my husband is angry and is advocating for cutting my parents off and going no contact. I’m really conflicted because I sincerely believed that further discussion with my parents isn’t going to produce a more constructive conversation, and it’s going to further damage our relationship.
TL;DR I could die of pre-eclampsia and my parents are prioritizing their dog over my daughter.

2023.06.10 23:53 KTE1994 Did the 4 captains really need to go to Hueco Mundo?

I get that Ichigo's group was struggling, but there were more options than the captains to help. We have the obvious choices like Nel, Pesche, and Dondochakka. If events were shuffled and Orihime healed their injuries then they'd straight up be a great help, and make their characters along with Orihime's shine.
Nel is Espada 3 so she could have stood up to Nnoitora pretty easily. Having their conflict come to an end by her taking him out for the trouble he caused, or her somehow getting through to him would have been interesting. It seemed like there was still an inkling of care despite everything. She could also Ichigo against Ulquiorra when he releases and be the reason he goes Segunda etapa.
Pesche and Dondochakka were strong enough to hurt Szayel in release and their synchro cero actually scared him. The fight could have been easily written in a way where they could have been the heavy hitters while Uryu and Renji played support for them to successfully hit him with it. Them killing Szayel would have been pure narrative catharsis considering he assisted Nnoitora, it'd also be fitting considering Szayel was absolutely terrible to his fraccion.
Zommari could honestly replace Yammy and be a collaborative effort between Rukia, Renji and Uryu, with Chad, Pesche, and Dondochakka being the heavy hitters.
We can assume that Pesche and Dondochakka have released forms that were stripped from them because they lost their original masks. So they're even stronger than most give credit for.
Chad with both arms does scale above Renji, considering Renji struggled with Chad during training when his right arm evolved the first time. Gantenbainne was doing way better than Renji at crushing Chad, who then turned the tables and proceeded to destroy him with ease when his arms evolved again.
These three would be the strongest of the six, and be the ones that eventually push him to release.
Zommari honestly would look better in both base and resurrection against multiple people.
He'd be blitzing most of them with his speed, and the clones would feel more useful.
When he releases him having multiple enemies would show off his power even more as he forces everyone against each other.
The MVP of the battle could actually be Uryu through use of reishi gathering and his paradise puppet technique. Having it to where Uryu can fight under the conditions of Zommari's Amor being placed on him would be invaluable.
He could be on the back foot at first, considering he's fighting against a physically stronger Zommari as well as his controlled allies, but when things seem lost he figures out a solution. He has a Byakuya moment and figures out a way to completely negate the ability. Reishi absorption. Byakuya likened amor to Kido after all. He's not able to do anything on Quilge's level but him absorbing the reishi of all of the marks in the area could have been possible.
This could lead to Zommari having a breakdown as he tries to control everyone again unknowingly weakening himself and strengthening Uryu. This could then lead to Uryu shooting him with an empowered arrow made of Zommari's own reishi. Severely wounding him in a way that would eventually kill him.
Zommari can then plead for mercy and have his rant, this time it'll apply better to Uryu and mean much more considering unlike Soul Reapers Quincy erase Hollows from existence which is a much more serious and terrible thing. Considering the "My pride as a Quincy" thing, that could make Zommari even more bitter. Uryu could respond by saying that he supported Aizen and tried to kill them first, but Zommari could shoot back that him killing them would put them back in the cycle of reincarnation unlike Uryu killing him.
Zommari could then explain that he supports Aizen because he freed him and many more Hollows from the torment of eternal hunger, and is fighting back against the Shinigami that slaughter them for following their cursed instincts they had no choice but to obey. Aizen to him is a savior to the Hollow race. This could check out considering in canon he praised Aizen as a god to his very last breath.
Rukia could then actually come to bat for Zommari and explain that killing him would mean that the souls he consumed would be erased too which would lead to a terrible imbalance. Rukia could then explain to Zommari the injustice and pain that a soul goes through when consumed by a Hollow. She could also reassure him that being killed by a Soul Reaper would send him and the many souls that he consumed to a better place mirroring her talk with the innocent soul she cleansed very early in the series. Being purified would be true freedom. This could ironically open Zommari's eyes, preferring to be finished off by her rather than succumbing to Uryu's attack.
Ending things off this way would fit Uryu and Rukia's character and make Zommari a much more prominent character than he was in canon. We could then have Uryu question Rukia on the validity of her statement about Soul Society being a better place, considering what he saw in the Soul Society arc with the Rukongai and the Seireitei corruption. This would feed into Uryu's disdain for the Soul Society as old memories open up, and give him more reason to join Yhwach later. Seeing someone he considers a legitimate friend be so indoctrinated would be hard to see.
If Nel, Pesche, and Dondochakka aren't enough we could also bring in Tessai, Ururu, Jinta, and Ashido (He's practically canon. Kubo didn't use him in the manga because of time issues. He also appears in the novels). I could easily see Tessai leading an operation to help Ashido out of the forest and tell him about Aizen's plan so he could assist. I wouldn't put it past Urahara to bug the group so he'd be aware of his existence.
Ururu, Jinta, and Ashido can fight against Rudborne.
Ururu was stronger than Chad, but weaker than Renji in murder mode. Her training up with Jinta would probably put them at a similar level to Rukia at least. Ashido was pretty damn strong despite being in base so I could see him being a heavy hitter against Rudborne in shikai. He's definitely stronger than Rukia too. It'd be a pretty interesting fight considering they don't have ice abilities. I could see them winning through an Urahara invention or Ashido straight up overpowering him in shikai.
Tessai could honestly have a really good fight against Segunda etapa Ulquiorra considering even with Nel's help I doubt it'd be enough. Having him be a legit threat to Ulquiorra, before things get interrupted by hollow Ichigo would be wild. Him actually going against hollow Ichigo to try and restrain him would be a perfect mirror to Urahara, Yoruichi, and Isshin's fight against Aizen. He'd probably lose, but it'd definitely establish him as an absolute badass. He's also a Kido master so he could definitely send Ichigo to the world of the living for his confrontation with Aizen.
To make things fair Yammy could be join the others in fake Karakura, and 0-3 could be buffed in general. Have Toshiro's Vasto Lorde statement make sense. Giving Yammy a condensed final form after fighting Zaraki and Byakuya, and having Barragan actually take things seriously would also help. Just make Aizen's top men an absolute nightmare. Maybe we can see Unohana's full power Early against a condensed Yammy to parallel Shunsui and Ukitake going against Starrk. Hell maybe have Chojiro go against Aizen when the Karakura captain trio fails so he can actually do something before he dies.
I dunno it just seems like things could have been handled in a smoother way for all parties involved.

2023.06.10 23:52 Stock-Balance-736 Weekend Storylies

Didn’t I see somewhere O.pee saying that the young lady’s baby shower was this weekend? Talking about making the mom a bayeskeet (basket😏) of goodies for after birth.
She also tried on some more cupshyte suits and couldn’t decide which one to wear out on the jetski.
Then it dawns on her bird brain that she’s meant to be in another city for Pride and will be there the entire weekend. And how poor Jax has to get boarded.
WHICH IS IT?! Baby shower, jetskiing, or parading?

2023.06.10 23:52 Deyganwolf 50 [M4F] #CA, Ventura - 6’2, 8.5”, Supremely Confident, Strict, Laid-Back Dominant Looking for a Submissive Fem to Affectionately Sexually Objectify
Must be over 21 and live in California. Don’t respond unless you want to do what you’re told. No hookers, escorts, or gay males. I’m straight. Any and all gay and/or bi males will be immediately blocked.
I’m a SWM, no kids, 6’2, 200, 8.5”, drug/disease-free, non-smoker.
Let Me be clear - I’m looking for a young woman who’d like to be in a monogamous relationship which would involve the delicious dichotomy of genuine affection with you being completely sexually objectified. You would serve as My Personal FuckDoll. My Sex Slave. My Cock-Whore and Slut. You would a servant to Me akin to a maiden who’s been subjugated by a conqueror - which, as a matter of fact, would be how I’d always be fucking you - like you were the princess of a kingdom I’d just conquered.
Your first priority would always be to serve My carnal lusts, whenever that may be. Barring any kind of family or medical emergency, when I want you, you will make yourself available. Period. You will constantly strive to be a Good Little Whore for your Master, and when you please Him, He will always reward you by calling you variations of exactly that - a Good Little Whore.
Sexually, I’m very rough, forceful, and vulgar. You’d always be getting fucked like you were in a porn shoot. Your body - which would become My Personal Sexual Property - would be used as I see fit as a piece of soft, feminine flesh for your big, tall, strong Master to manhandle and ravage. Your hair will be yanked and pulled. Your throat will be grabbed. You’ll be restrained when I want to restrain you. Your mouth will be muffled when I want to muffle it. Your tits will be voraciously sucked. Your ass will be spanked. Your pussy will be licked. And it will be pounded and stretched out deep to conform to My big cock.
Afterwards, whenever I want you to, you will lay naked with your Master. Maybe we’d watch something, maybe we’d nap, maybe we’d go somewhere. Or maybe you’d simply caress and massage My athletic physique.
Everything about your appearance would be dedicated to looking good for Me to fuck. How you do your hair, your makeup, your lips, nails, earrings, skin moisturizer, all of it would be done as if you were going to a night club specifically to get hit on. And I’d control how you did your makeup, lips, nails, what kind of earrings you’d wear, as well as the more obvious things I’d be controlling, like the kind of heels you’d wear and whatnot.
I’m not into anything extreme. No piss/scat, blood, cages, or any of that kind of crap.
No experience is required. I’m very capable at breaking you in and training you.
I’m not into BBWs, and any kind of smoking or vaping is a dealbreaker. No, I’m not 420 friendly.
I play baseball in adult leagues on weekends, and you’d come to as many of My games and tournaments as you could, dolled-up per my commands.
Describe yourself and your body very specifically when you respond. Tell me what turned you on about this post, and don’t be afraid to be bold and vulgar. If you’re going to send pics, do NOT send anything naked.
I’ll take it from there.

2023.06.10 23:52 6th-Floor Strawberry Full Moon Magical Love Ritual

Two months ago on the Pink Full Moon in April I created a spell which helped my AP fall in love with me. Last week I took her to London for a long weekend and on the June Strawberry Full Moon I did some new sex magic with her.
I researched some magical techniques and then created a new sigil that will help us stay together for the next year and further strengthen our love. I got us a super sexy hotel, bought sexy masks for us to wear, lit sexy candles and then I had her lie down naked wearing her mask while I wore mine. I had a basket of strawberries and bought some red strawberry body paint. After feeding her strawberries I drew the sigil I created on her naked body and explained to her what the spell was for. Then I explained that to "fire" or activate the spell we needed to orgasm - which we did together in a very hot and sticky sex ritual.
The entire weekend was magical, we made love for many many hours, walked in the parks, ate at amazing restaurants, meditated together, spent hours looking into each other's eyes, made out intensely in pubs making others uncomfortable, walked through flower markets, went shopping for Hermes scarves, and yeah generally fell deeper and deeper in love. We agreed that we wouldn't try to change our lives for one year to see if the NRE wears off, but holy moly I'm in way too deep with this girl.
I'm back in the US now and counting the days until I'm back in her city in Europe. I'll give you all an update after the next full moon ;)

2023.06.10 23:51 Fellow_Gey MbtiTypeMe

I am an 18-year-old Male who likes to draw and play video games
• Is there a medical diagnosis that may impact your mental stability somehow?
• Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it?
my parents were pretty strict with me. I didn't watch a lot of TV shows growing up, I had a lot of private classes and was expected an A+ from all of my classes. I wasn't allowed to have a phone until High School and although I went to a religious school, I don't have any opinions on religion, and during my time in school, although I didn't believe in religion I still paid respect and did what was expected of me. This lead to me becoming somewhat of a people-pleaser and would have outbursts when someone breaks my limits, which usually never happens.
• What do you do as a job or as a career (if you have one)? Do you like it? Why or why not?
I do not have a job right now but my dream job would be an artist, and my realistic job would be working at a restaurant. If all else fails however, I could settle to be a therapist because I feel like a listener in more relationships.
• If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed?
I would feel both lonely but also refreshed. I love to spend time with people but get tired easily, but when I'm alone for too long I feel tired too and need other people to help energize and motivate me. Most of the time I would call my friends online to keep in touch.
• What kinds of activities do you prefer? Do you like, and are you good at sports? Do you enjoy any other outdoor or indoor activities?
I prefer to draw and play games with my friends, but I also love to bike. I love doing these monotonous things because I feel like I get to think the best when my mind is consciously doing things while my subconscious takes over the thinking. So I like both indoor and outdoor activities. I also like dancing because it's very fun.
• How curious are you? Do you have more ideas then you can execute? What are your curiosities about? What are your ideas about - is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate?
I'm very curious but in a way that is kept to myself. Everytime I start thinking consciously however, it always leads to something gloomy and somehow everything I think about somehow ties to the inevitable end to all things. My ideas are usually things I've seen before and I like to merge them to see what would be the best idea from observing not the little details but the grand scheme
• Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be?
I hate taking on leadership positions and the only times where I have taken a leadership position was helping my friends who were in conflict back together. My leadership style would be to listen to everyone's perspectives and then creating an average perspective and go from there.
• Are you coordinated? Why do you feel as if you are or are not? Do you enjoy working with your hands in some form? Describe your activity?
I am very coordinated within myself but I hate making decisions for myself because it feels selfish. I never feel coordinated however because I feel like I'm always just going whatever my path takes me and figure it out when I get there. I love to draw with my hands and fold papers or do monotonous work like I said earlier because it helps me focus on other things.
• Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particular artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer.
I love to draw both traditionally on paper and also digital paint. My art usually has an underlying meaning and also in my head I think was perfect at the moment, which is why so many of them are unfinished because I've grown to not like that idea and focus on the ones that are more perfect.
• What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them?
I'm always thinking about the future but I really hate to because every time I do it always leads to something bad and gloomy, usually death and how the fabric of reality we're living on may not even be real. As a coping mechanism, I would focus on the present by being around my friends because they help me live in the moment. I see the past as more of as experiences that when averaged up helped me make decisions in the present/future. I also have incredibly bad memory.
• How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so?
I usually try to stop what I'm doing to help them, unless I'm doing something really important and I would reassure them usually over text that I'll help them later. I help them because it makes me feel better that they appreciate me for my efforts and out of everyone they could've asked for help they came to me.
• Do you need logical consistency in your life?
No, I think my sense of logic can change all the time and it's completely personal. I can learn many things from proven sources but how everyone perceives that knowledge is different to themselves.
• How important is efficiency and productivity to you?
It's only ever important if I am demanded of it or if it's required, otherwise I rather spend my time making everything more perfect and presentable.
• Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that?
I'm not sure if it's control, but I've realized just recently that every since I was young, I've learned how to appeal to every individualistic person as a good friend even if I don't like them so that when conflict happens people will always be by my side. 90% of the time though I'm nice to people because I genuinely believe that everyone can be a good person if you get to know them.
• What are your hobbies? Why do you like them?
I love every form of art, from drawing and poetry to dancing and theatrical acting, because I think art is the meaning of life and I genuinely just enjoy them. I love to play video games too and although playing alone is fine, but usually I really open my computer to talk to my friends.
• What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses?
My learning style is slow and group oriented. I take in information very slowly because I need a physical teacher in front of me to give examples of how it works internally, because I have trouble just memorizing equations; I actually need them to make sense to me. I struggle most with environments where I have to figure everything out by myself; it's not impossible but I would DEFINITELY rather have someone who can guide me. I don't really prefer any classes because I don't like complaining.
• How good are you at strategizing? Do you easily break up projects into manageable tasks? Or do you have a tendency to wing projects and improvise as you go?
I always just wing and improvise because if I paid attention to the teacher, I've learned to trust my brain to know exactly what to do and how to do it.
• What are your aspirations in life, professionally and personally?
• What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why?
• What do the "highs" in your life look like?
In seventh grade when I had all A+ in every class, I made a ton of friends in my new school, had swimming classes everyday so my parents were happy, my friends and I played games together every weekend, and I was just happy because I had no idea what was going on
• What do the "lows" in your life look like?
A period of time when I had really really bad grades, stayed up with all nighters doing literally nothing, thought I was genuinely developing a mental illness, didn't want to talk to anyone, had no idea where my life was going, moving somewhere else where away from all of my old friends I've spent my life with, and I suppressed all of my emotions because I thought that there was always someone who had it worse than me.
• How attached are you to reality? Do you daydream often, or do you pay attention to what's around you? If you do daydream, are you aware of your surroundings while you do so?
I daydream very often but I'm always very connected to reality. sometimes I wonder if I hate being connected to reality or I hate that I love to daydream, because I'm always believing that there is good out there, but I get disappointed every time yet I still belive in the same thing. I'm usually aware of my surroundings when I daydream, but I will forget everything someone says until I hear something that snaps me out of my daydream.
• Imagine you are alone in a blank, empty room. There is nothing for you to do and no one to talk to. What do you think about?
It would be my nightmare because even without the room being blank and empty I'm always thinking about the worst things ever, and I always need someone else to talk to to break me out of that chain of thought. I always think about the future and what it holds but I can't control myself when doing it and sometimes I even have trouble falling asleep because I'm trying to not focus on my thoughts but they override my brain anyways.
• How long do you take to make an important decision? And do you change your mind once you've made it?
Very long, because I need to know every perspective of the situation and I trust myself to not change my mind unless something new is added to the equation.
• How long do you take to process your emotions? How important are emotions in your life?
Emotions are very important to me and I love to share my emotions with people I'm closest to, which really sucks for me because when I'm outside I always have this need to make my emotions be appealing to the people around me.
• Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going? How often? Why?
Very very often because I hate conflict.
• Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better? If you do break rules, why?
I usually don't break the rules because I see no reason why to, I never really put much thought into it (to both not breaking the rules and breaking the rules). Authorities should be challenged when they're wrong and being selfish. They probably do know better but after all they're still human like us and how should we not know better?

2023.06.10 23:49 urgh-a-music-war Can you really copyright a vague concept?

Example: multiple small organizations, theatres, college clubs, etc do "secret cinema" events around the world (you don't know which movie you're seeing until you show up), but a large British company is sending out copyright violations for the name and concept to organizations in other countries. I can understand for the name "secret cinema" to some extent, I guess - but the entire concept of showing movies without announcing which movie is being shown, as a surprise for the people who show up? I was not aware this sort of thing could be copyrighted, especially worldwide - can it?

2023.06.10 23:48 leonettied Nerve pain

Hey guys,
I got braces put on 6 days ago. My teeth are obviously still sore. However, one tooth (my 1st molar) started hurting differently overnight. It’s not the usual dull ache. I noticed this this morning when I was using my electric toothbrush. The vibrations of the toothbursh were causing shooting pain in my 1st molar and tapping it with my nail causes the same pain. It is, however, not senstive to hot or cold drinks and does not hurt otherwise except when tapped or brushed.
Do you think this is normal and the nerve is irritated from the movements or is there something else going on like an infection or cavity. It would be such a bummer because I got all my teeth checked 3 months ago by my dentist and even got a filling changed in the nearby tooth. Everything was ok then.
I can’t get to my dentist or ortho in the next 2 days as it’s the weekend.

2023.06.10 23:47 Rare-Pickled-Gem AITAH if I call out my mom for not helping enough with her grandson?

My mom adore kids and works in schools - she always promised me she would help with childcare when she became a grandma.
The first year of Covid was really hard on her, schools were just a total shit show. She told me she was only going to work one more school year and then retire. I got pregnant shortly after and she said she couldn’t wait to retire and take care of the baby while I worked. My work shifts were a mix of days, evenings and weekends so just the times when both my husband and I were at work (about 18 hours/week).
Unfortunately she waited until right after my son was born to tell me she actually didn’t want to retire anymore - things were better at work and she said financially she couldn’t afford it. Obviously I felt a little blindsided without a childcare plan. Daycares around us had super long waiting lists not to mention extremely expensive. But I understood and would have hated for her to sacrifice her financial well-being to be my free childcare provider. I offered to pay her so she could retire but with her pension at work it didn’t make sense. I never once got upset with her.
We seriously considered moving somewhere cheaper to afford childcare but my mom would be heartbroken. We finally were able to cobble together a childcare plan that involved me switching to only evening and weekend shifts, my husband covering nap time while he works from home and my mom helping after school for 3-4 hours on 3 days a week. She’s an amazing grandma and takes such good care of my son - I really love seeing their special bond.
Now this is where I could become an asshole… my mom is super social and has a million friends. She has hard time keeping the childcare commitment we worked out. She constantly cancels last minute for dinners, parties etc and is always late because she gets “stuck” chatting with friends at work. In the last 9 months she has only actually helped the full 3 days a week on 4 occasions. Unfortunately it falls on my husband, having to scramble to make work calls while chasing a toddler around the house. He is at his wit’s end.
Is there a way for me to call her out without sounding like a total brat? Or should I just keep my mouth shut and be grateful for the help and that I can avoid paying for daycare? I know she loves spending time with my son and would be very hurt if I hired a nanny instead. I don’t expect her to give up her whole life to raise my kid, I just wish she would follow through on what she says so that we can plan our life accordingly. TIA for any advice!!!

2023.06.10 23:47 Gurdy0714 Things that the movies got wrong that still annoy me

The movies are on E! this weekend and of course I am watching them. These are the corrections that the TV series needs to make, from the total mistakes in the movies:
1) Slughorn was not a wimp and he never would have abandoned his students in the final battle, hiding because he couldn’t find his wand.
2) Speaking of the final battle, McGonagall should have been in the middle of it. She was scared of nobody.
4) “Did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?” was so extra.
5) Trelawney was not insane like she appears in the movies. She was eccentric and weird but she didn’t look like she slept in a van.
6) The Director got the hats wrong on the Beauxbatons costumes. I know this is an irrelevant detail but they were supposed to be worn on the side of the heat, not on too like a normal hat. They were actually nice when worn correctly.

2023.06.10 23:47 sineadduran Well I messed up..

I 34f was 1 of 2 bridesmaids at my close friend's wedding 2 days ago. It was a 3 day event about an hour away from my city. I somehow decided bringing a litre of vodka (JUST IN CASE OF EMERGENCY) would be a good idea to spread out over the 4 days. Drank most on day 1. By the time the dinner started I was sent to bed. I missed the whole dinner and had to be smuggled out of the hotel in the morning with extreme DTs by a friend of mine. She had to skip the breakfast to drive me an hour home and brought me to my parents house. I was shaking violenty. They brought me straight to the dr. I was prescribed 90mg of librium which tapers down for a week to detox. Lost one my main friends, ruined the wedding, boyfriend is gone. Feel like shit now. I'll detox here, start AA and if I fail again I go to rehab. I have no job, no boyfriend, and no hope at the moment. But I'm absolutely determined to do it this time.

2023.06.10 23:47 Fluid_Cardiologist19 Manifested a friend back and ran into another as well!

So, I’ve had a few successes with this, but this one just happened last night. I recently lost touch with a friend. A friend I had made in the last year, who I hit it off with instantly and spent a decent amount of time with. We always just had a great time, had a lot in common, always had great conversation, respected each other, and just really enjoyed each other’s company. It was a pretty effortless friendship and one of the first ones I made since my divorce.
Well a few months ago, without any explanation, she just kind of dropped off, just stopped answering texts, responding, etc.. At the time, I knew it wasn’t about me because she had expressed previously that she has been known to do that to people in the past when she has been going through stuff. So, when it happened I just sent one last text after a few unanswered ones that let her know I love her, miss her, would love to see her, and that nothing she’s going through is too much for me. I left it at that to give her room to reach back out when she was ready.
Recently, I’ve been thinking about her a lot, since her birthday is approaching, and I do miss her. I have intentionally thought that I would love to hear from her and left it at that.
I have other friends here, but none I enjoy as much as her. Most of my really close, and old friends, live in other cities. So, last night I went out to a group event and who walks in? My long lost friend! We made eye contact, instantly walked over to each other hugged and both expressed that we were happy to see each other. She teared up a bit and told me she was very sorry, and was going through stuff and wanted to tell me about it. I told her no need, I figured, I was just happy to see her. She said she wanted to explain but we both agreed that was best left for another time and proceeded to spend the next 8 hours having a blast! It was like no time past at all, and we’re seeing each other again tonight.
We did break away from the group at one point and she did say she really wanted to give me an explanation, because she thinks I deserve one, and I told her I appreciated that, but we’ll get to that another time when it’s just us. I assured her once again that I’m her friend even when things are bad and she need not worry that she’ll burden me with her stuff.
Later that night, I ran into someone else I also met very early on after my divorce. It was a male friend I really liked, but had to stop hanging around because he was very clearly trying to date me after I had made it very clear I had no interest in him in that way. He said he was cool with just being friends, but then proceeded to try and date me and I’m very strict with my boundaries and people not respecting them when I communicate them very clearly.
Our last contact was me telling him he was making me uncomfortable and us being more than friends is never going to happen. Well, I saw him out at the bar, approached him to say hi, because it wasn’t like we hate each other, and we caught up. I knew he wouldn’t approach me out of respect, but he did see me. I wanted him to know there was no hard feelings, because there’s not, I just needed to be respected.
It was nice to see him because he was always a good guy, I just wasn’t interested in the type of relationship he was wanting. He ended up apologizing for making me uncomfortable and not respecting my boundaries and he ended up joining our group to hang out the rest of the night. I had no desire, thoughts, or intentions of manifesting him back into my life but it was nice to see him and it is a welcome return. I am glad I can be around him again in a comfortable way and we put that behind us.
So, that is my success story of manifesting two friends back in one night! One intentionally, and one not, but both very welcome!
