2020.09.29 04:58 ProbablyHopelessBut The girl I’m currently dating takes forever to reply to my messages

As the title suggests I recently started dating this girl and we’ve been on four dates as of now. I’m just generally confused and getting mixed vibes with regards to her. She has acknowledged on multiple occasions, just through general conversation, that she considers us to be dating.
We took a two month hiatus between dates three and four because she was had to assist her ex with moving and she didn’t want to start drama between us. She ended up messaging me out of the blue and asked if I was interested in going out with her again. She told me she missed me and the reason why she hadn’t messaged me sooner was because she left like it was selfish of her to reach back out because I had probably moved on. Further she felt like she couldn’t have given me her full attention.
Here we are two months later and we went out for the fourth time a few days ago. I’m just really confused because we mesh well together and have a great time in each other company but she just feels really distant over text. I feel like she puts the same effort into each text she sends as I do but she takes hours to respond.
For example: today I messaged her at 7:56 a.m. and it took her until 3:36 p.m. to respond. I messaged her again at 7:09 p.m. and it’s now 10:40 and she has yet to respond. Over on Instagram yesterday, I sent her a dm at 12:40 p.m. and it took her until 8:09 p.m. to reply. In that instance, she had “seen” my dm much earlier than that but too five to six hours to reply. She did apologize in that instance with a “Sorry I’m just getting back to you” but I don’t know.
Altogether, maybe I’m just over complicating things but it just seems unusual for someone who supposedly likes you. I sort of want to confront her on it in as non-confrontational of a way as I can. It’s like, I just want to know if she has any interest in me whatsoever before continuing. If she doesn’t that’s totally fine but if that’s the case I just want to move on again. Also I should additionally note, her texting habits haven’t recently change. This is just how’s its been since I first met her. Any advice as to how I should move forward? Is it too weird for a guy to ask a girl he’s been dating if she has any interest in him so they can just move on if she’s not feeling it?

2020.09.29 04:55 Sirtim0thy95 PLEASE HELP: MSI GF65THIN RTX 2060 9th gen i7 32 gb ram, FPS\GPU issues

Hello. I recently got this laptop, as it seemed to be a decent option without breaking the bank (1300$ spec'd out). This is my first true gaming laptop, and I have been noticing some kind of strange behaviors. I'd be extremely grateful if a senior laptopper has any insight into these issues. I am relatively new to pc gaming.
FIRST issue: So, I started out with the gtav campaign. It performs, well, acceptably. I get 30-40 fps in the city, closer to 60 in the countryside. This is a fairly old title by now, and I just don't know why i am barely scraping 30 fps in heavily populated areas. RTSS tells me my gpu is around 30% in use, it hardly EVER even hits 50 percent, and I am definitely not overheating. I disabled PCIE link state, and got maybe 5-10 plus fps.
Why is this happening? Is the laptop somehow throttling everything? Should I disable HPET? I am plugged in, windows power options are all set to maximum performance. Nvidia control panel is tweaked for performance. What am I missing here? It's kind of driving me crazy. (ALSO, having this issue in other games, not just in gtav. freaking TF2 is doing the same thing, where I will barely scrape 40 fps in certain maps with lots of players with around 30% GPU usage.)

SECOND issue: CSGO is kind of having an opposite issue. Whenever I run the game, I could toast bread on it. The 2060 hovers around 80c, and it runs perfectly smooth, but WHY is it using the gpu like this? Its probably the least graphically intensive game I'm trying to run, and it absolutely cooks my poor machine. I capped the fps to 120 in console, but it didnt change the behavior a bit.

I bought this machine on the premise that it could at least handle gtav, at around 60 fps. As far as I know, there are no major bottlenecks. Are there settings I am simply missing that are hampering how my GPU behaves? I've been researching this for hours and all I'm finding is "hurr durr make sure theres no dust in the fans" and similar armchair advice.

Drivers are up to date. Windows is updated. PLEASE HELP, and thank you in advance. I will happily provide more detailed information if someone needs it.

2020.09.29 04:51 lookingforadvice1996 I'm 24... What are we humans supposed to do for 80+ years?

So like the title says I'm 24M (and a half) lol. But in all seriousness I feel like I'm facing a sort of life crisis.
I had a rocky start to adulthood. I dropped out of high school a month before graduating, then my bestfriend died just a few days before graduation and I spent that entire summer getting drunk and high every waking moment.
Eventually at some point between 19-21 I became obsessed with being "successful" and decided I would do it through marketing. I wanted to become a digital nomad. Travel the world and work from a laptop. I spent every hour (to an obsessive level) studying marketing, thinking about marketing, and critiquing everything I saw around me in the world.
My friends liked to party just as much as me and didn't share the same new found passion. Eventually I stopped hanging out with everyone I grew up with in pursuit of this new goal and they stopped visiting from college.
I've moved to different states, worked in tons of jobs from cashier, waiter, IT Technician, Painter, and so on.
Long story kinda short I finally landed a marketing position, and then another.
The position I'm in I've been at for almost two years. The longest I've ever stayed in one position.
The job is remote, and I work about 5-10 hours a week (Yeah, 40 hours a month max). I'm on salary and make a decent amount of money especially for a dropout.
Will I become rich from it? No.
But I drive the car I want, don't really feel any desire to upgrade my living standards, and can save about $1,200-$1,800/month if I stay focused on my budget, more once I pay off my car.
Lately I've realized I don't really know what to do with all my free time. I have a few hobbies but I always seem to have spare time (which I currently fill with MASSIVE bong rips if I'm being honest)
I feel strange because I was a popular kid growing up but now I have no close friends or anyone I really hang out with. My old high school buddies are either still in school at grad programs or have gone off to the corporate world and work full-time.
I guess I'm a little lonely and have promised myself to work on this area of my life but I'm not entirely sure that's what giving me this empty "missing something" feeling. I also SUCK at making new friends, I haven't got a clue even where to begin and since all I've thought about is "business" and "marketing" for years I always end up steering conversations towards this topic which is boring for most people and not even really what I want to talk about either it's just the only conversations I know how to navigate.
My family encourages me to find a girlfriend pretty much weekly and I also think this might be good but my last girlfriend was from high school we dated for most of high school and a couple years after. I haven't even felt interested in another relationship since. Seems wrong to force myself into one for the sake of "trying" to feel different but maybe I'm wrong on this?
I think I had a much more grand vision of life as a kid and now at 24 I'm relatively free of work and have accomplished the bulk of everything I had dreamed minus living abroad which is still doable.
I also lost the need to own a Lamborghini, fly private jets, and live on an island. Maybe if I still had friends this stuff would be cool but if you don't have anyone to measure up against all that stuff is worthless.
I guess if I'd known I would have gotten to this point so quickly I probably would have went to college and had fun with the rest of the people my age. Even now at 24 just a couple years past the "normal" college age I feel like I gave up all those fun nights I could've had for nothing.
It's scary to think I need to fill potentially 60 something more years of life with activities and stuff to-do. How do I become less scared about this?
Going back to school has crossed my mind but I'm not sure I want to take on the financial burden for the promise of what?
A new job in the future that takes 40-60 hours a week for more pay... Is this supposed to be what I continue to strive for?
If so, I feel even less hopeful than when I began writing this haha.
Hoping one of you strangers has some wisdom to pass on.
Thanks for reading.

Expect weekend report lag. "Daily case counts reflect newly reported cases and may represent cases that were tested in the preceding days, which could significantly impact the count on days when a relatively large number of laboratory reports arrive in one day." SNHD confirmed they are not counting COVID-19 antibody positives into their COVID-19 positive case counts.
Majority of information is pulled from Southern Nevada Health District's COVID-19 dashboard and historical reports.
Our positives have slowed down, our recovery rate continues to rise (90+% range), but our hospitalizations are increasing. Protect our vulnerable and continue to practice good hygiene habits, including wearing a mask to prevent asymptomatic spread as mandated by Governor Sisolak (onus is on businesses, which we want to keep open, but Metro will not enforce it; OSHA is responsible for mask enforcement by fining the business). To report a non-compliant business through the state, call (702) 486-9020 or (775) 688-3700.
Doctors are doing convalescent plasma therapy treatments and are seeking plasma donors to help those in need. One plasma donation can help five patients. Blood donors can get the antibodies testing done for free.
FDA states 144 trials of therapeutics are underway to treat COVID-19. 457 more are in planning stages. None have been approved. Remdesivir and Dexamethaaone are FDA approved for emergency base use.
Nevada was approved for the 24-hour test procedure. FDA has approved a 30-minute and a 5-minute testing procedures. UNLV provides the main COVID-19 testing services. The first at-home testing kit was FDA approved on 5/15.
If you live within a 1-mile range of the Wal-Mart on Craig Rd, you qualify for a drone-delivered test kit to your front or back door.
Testing sites require an appointment; some may need to be scheduled by your primary care physician or another authorized provider.
City Serve coordinates testing sites throughout the valley. Testing is only on Saturdays. Schedule a no-cost test here: https://cityservelv.org/
The antibodies test was approved by the FDA a month ago. UMC, E7 Health and local laboratories are able to conduct antibodies testing. Cost is normally $149+, but your insurance may reimburse you for the test. Check your coverage first. Vitalant/Universal Blood Services will do a free antibody test for any eligible donors.
UMC is able to process 4,000 tests per day. It is encouraged for anyone to be tested. Symptoms are no longer required. Appointment is required.
UMC's testing sites are inside Thomas & Mack Center and Cashman Field Center. They can do 1,200 tests per day, Tues-Sat 8am to 4pm. No symptoms, insurance, or citizenship required for testing. Must schedule an appointment online through UMC's website (www.umcsn.com). A staff member will contact you back to schedule your appointment. According to their reps, there is no limit how often you can get tested. Sites are walk-in, appointment or walk-up. Both sites now use the self-nasal swab test kits.
UMC updates COVID-19 test guidelines:
New guidelines are to save test kits for those exhibiting symptoms.
See all testing locations on the SNHD website.
All CVS pharmacy drive-thru locations also do testing, no cost should be associated with this test. Validate with your insurance. If no insurance, there should be no charge.

2020.09.29 04:35 psychotrader00 PsychoMarket Recap - Monday, September 28, 2020

PsychoMarket Recap - Monday, September 28, 2020
Stocks jumped today as the major indices looked to recuperate some of their losses from the past weeks. Global equities also jumped after China reported strong industrial profit figures.
The financials, industrials and materials sectors led gains in the S&P 500, though all 11 major sectors were positive on the day. Big Tech shares jumped, recovering some of the decline from the past weeks. The Nasdaq (QQQ) led, finishing 2.08% up, the S&P 500 (SPY) finished 1.68% up and the Dow (DIA) finished the day 1.56% up.
Covid-19 cases are on the rise in the United States as more states reopen and loosen restrictions put in place earlier in the year. According to data from John Hopkins, the US recorded 55,759 new cases on Friday, the highest single day total in about a month. Forty states and territories have seen an increase over the last two weeks as of Saturday, just days after the U.S. logged its 7 millionth confirmed coronavirus case. Wyoming was the nation’s new hot spot with a 128 percent jump in new cases followed by Utah (111 percent), Wisconsin (104 percent) and Colorado (97 percent), based on data compiled by NBC. Gov Tony Evers declared a public health emergency in Wisconsin in response to the uptick.
Dr. Fauci, the US’ leading infectious disease expert and leader in fighting the virus, said “We [the US] are not in a good place. There are states that are starting to show an uptick in cases and even some increases in hospitalization in some states.” He added that the average of 40,000 new cases per day is “unacceptably high” and that he would like to see it below 10,000.
This morning China reported a 19.1% surge in industrial profits in August, marking the fourth straight month of sustained recovery. The report raised hopes that the slump in the global economy this year may not be as bad as originally feared, as the country first hit by the pandemic continues to recover.
Hopes for the passage of additional stimulus was raised after Pelosi told CNN that democrats would soon unveil a new $2.4 trillion proposal, roughly $1 trillion less than their initial proposal but a figure still higher than the reported $1.5 trillion figure that the Trump administration has signaled it will accept. In response Pelosi said, “At some point, the public is going to have to see why $2.2 or now $2.4 trillion dollars is necessary. The president’s denial of the virus and just resistance to doing anything to crush it has made matters worse ... So we may need more money than that. And we will reveal what that is in a short period of time.” Treasury Secretary Mnuchin added that he and Pelosi have agreed to restart talks to try to work out a deal.
On Sunday, President Trump officially nominated Amy Coney Barret to the Supreme Court to replace Former Justice Ginsburg’s seat. Republicans hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate, suggesting they could move quickly to confirm her before the November election, despite the cry of Democratic lawmakers.

2020.09.29 04:30 ArrowGantOne Crazy Is As Crazy Does

A few people in my life know the details of what went down with my ex-wife. I’ve had two therapists tell me the circumstances of her betrayal were the cruelest they’d ever heard. It was years ago, but I thought by sharing, it might help someone in some way.
My backstory is I grew up in a traditional home with two parents that loved and cared for me. I could not have asked for better parents. What they did not know (and I am thankful never found out about) was that from the age of 6 until I was 12, I was being brutally molested by an older male cousin on my mom’s side. My mom’s family lives in Georgia. Living in another state I only had to encounter this cousin 2-3 times per year. If they visited us in my state nothing ever happened. Any trip to Georgia to this day gives me anxiety and I wake up having night terrors often when I’m there. The abuse grew more and more heinous over the years, but I never told a soul until I was in my late 20’s.
I met a friend who confessed in a conversation that she’d been molested by and uncle by marriage as a toddler. I don’t know why I picked that moment or that person to open up to. But when I managed to utter the words and admit I too had dealt with severe abuse as a child, I just broke down. Part of it felt good, like I was sitting a load of bricks down I’d carried on my back for years without reason. But internalizing all that abuse for years and confessing was like uncorking a champagne bottle of shit. I couldn’t stop crying. I felt horrible, horrible emotions I hadn’t felt in years. I felt dirty and defiled much like I had every day of my life but tenfold.
Thankfully, the company I worked for had an employee assistance program and within two days I was seeing my first therapist. The only problem was the first two sessions were spent just trying to explain why I was there to my shrink because just bringing the subject up would make me ugly cry. I’d been raised to believe tears were a sign of weakness, and that made me feel even weaker than the abuse. I came to understand how deeply the abuse affected me. Things that would seem obvious to an outsider were oblivious to me as the victim. The fact I couldn’t bear oral sex performed on me should have been a red flag to me that I needed help. An ex had once sat on my legs and attempted to give head and I wigged out telling her I felt like I was being raped. I didn’t understand why, and obviously neither did she. But the abuse didn’t just cause many sexual hang-ups, it affected my esteem and even the very way I viewed myself.
I have blue eyes and I’ve hated them my entire life because to me they looked effeminate. The same with my lips due to French ancestry. While I’d always been wiry; when I saw myself nude in the mirror, I saw what looked to be a concentration camp survivor looking back at me. A small zit in my eyes looked like a huge tumor. To this day I do not own a pair of shorts or short sleeved shirt. I have done a ton of work on my body to try and look better, but my mind cannot visualize any progress. To be seen in public uncovered would cause a panic attack. Hell, even when I get a shower, I put a towel over the mirror, so I don’t have to see me. But the therapy started helping me a lot and some self-esteem entered my life for the first time since I was 6. However, within a year I had gained 25lbs of muscle. I was modeling part time and selling my artwork through a gallery in DC. I dated a ton but very seldom had any carnal activity with any of them. There are many reasons for that. I was raised to not be promiscuous. I had my body issues. But most of all, knowing I could bed a particular girl was more pleasurable to me than actually having sex with her. I was called a tease more than once. But I didn’t want any STD’s and I sure as hell didn’t want to break any hearts.
Then I met Amy. I was with a group of friends when I met her. I was friendly but not interested, yet it was obvious she was interested in me. I can never tell when a girl is even interested in me because I am totally oblivious to body language and subtlety. In the past a girl basically had to throw it on me before I had any comprehension she was interested. But Amy was so overt even I could figure it out. I told her we could be friends and I wasn’t looking for any hook ups or relationships. (Which was 100% true.) So once in a while we’d hang out and I went out with other girls. Eventually I learned Amy had been in abusive relationships. I quickly deduced that seeing her mom abused by stepdads had made her feel that type of thing was acceptable. Having gone through years of abuse and getting so much help from therapy, I wanted to help her get past some of her issues. (Every therapist should have a sign on the wall of their office that says, “Don’t Try This at Home”.) So, she and I began talking about her abuse and started getting closer.
We were still only friends until after a night of partying with friends I woke to find a naked Amy laying on top of a naked me. Instantly I had morning regret because I knew she would take all that to mean there was more than just friendship between us. I was right and when I had to tell her it meant nothing she cried. But as time went on and we remained friends she kind of wore me down. I saw nothing wrong with Amy. She seemed to have a kind heart. She was far from ugly. And it was easy to see she loved me. Due to all the BS I’d endured and faced in therapy I didn’t think I was capable of love like a normal human could love. (I didn’t think I was capable of being loved too.) So, like a dumbass I figured if I couldn’t love, I could be with someone that loved me and make her happy at least. This was NOT some gesture by Captain Saveaho, I thought she was as good as I could expect after enduring all the crap I had lived through. I knew I was forever damaged in many ways, so I assumed she was the best my damaged soul could hope for. That caused me to make THE biggest mistake of my entire life and I married Amy in a small ceremony for family only. She was elated, I was content, and we started our lives together by heading to Europe for three weeks of touring.
Fast forward about six months and Amy brought me some food one night to my job. But instead of the always happy girl I’d married; she was crying and suicidal. Nothing had happened to cause the depression crash, she just started feeling depressed. When I started trying to fish for information, I learned that two days before she’d gone to her gynecologist, and he’d changed her replacement hormones. Amy had a few rare medical conditions. One of those caused her to enter menopause at 18 and have a need for hormone replacement therapy the rest of her life. None of that had ever been an issue before. Everyone that has encountered a teenager knows hormones can make the most rational person act a fool. So, it shouldn’t have been a huge surprise a change in hormone medications could cause such a drastic change in temperament. At any rate, once I learned about the medication change, I assumed that was the issue of her depression. I told her to drive to the apartment, I was going to tell my boss I was leaving and then I’d be right behind her. From the time she left to the apartment to the time I got home could not have been much more than 20 minutes. But when I arrived home, I found Amy laying in the floor and discovered she had taken an entire bottle of Xanax. At that point I had two choices. Let her lay there and die or take her to the ER. I made the wrong decision. Yes, I took her to the ER. And I’m sure people reading that previous statement already think I’m evil for thinking such a thing. Keep reading.
For those that don’t know, you don’t attempt suicide, go to the hospital and they let you go that night. If you try that you WILL be held against your will for an undetermined amount of time. The people at the ER talked with me and I explained about the medication change. They too thought it was probably the cause for her drastic nosedive. They told me to go home and the hospital would let me know when I could see her. Please do understand, at that time I did still love Amy. I worried all night and the next day hoping she’d be okay. And when I got a call from the hospital telling me when visitation was, I rushed to the hospital to see how she was doing. She was very glad to see me, seemed totally normal and wanted to go home but knew she had at least a few more days to stay. After the two hours of visitation I was headed out the door when one of the doctors asked to speak with me in private. We walked into a office where he took his seat at the center of six other doctors and specialists. The doctor went on to tell me how they had treated both the attempted OD and what they’d learned in the short therapy sessions they’d had. When they told me my wife was bi-polar (NO, that does NOT mean they are bisexual at the north or south pole. I looked it up. And an ad for a hot Eskimo chick does NOT get you anywhere on Craigslist). That didn’t scare me, I knew plenty of people who had to be on antidepressants. But when they told me Amy was borderline schizophrenic with multiple personality disorder I literally laughed out loud.
I told them I’d known her for years and never seen a single loco red flag. They told me they had been able to identify five separate personalities in Amy. They explained I had married one of those personalities and that the woman I married might be gone forever. I insisted the medication change was the entire cause of the drama and once she got her chemistry back in alignment, she’d be fine. I wish like hell I had listened to them and run like hell. But the diagnosis sounded like some BS from one of those lame Lifetime Network movies. Sweet baby Jesus, the reality was something one of that network’s lame writers wouldn’t even write. At the end of the week they let her come home and for the first few hours everything seemed fine. We had dinner and were watching TV. She turned the volume down and asked if I heard a baby crying. I didn’t and didn’t think much of it. But when she went to bed the real fun started. She woke me from a sound sleep that night to ask me what that fence was doing in our bedroom. I of course saw no fence, so I asked her to describe it. She could see a fence built into the wall and it stretched across our bedroom, down the hall and into our bathroom. It was only when I got up and occupied the same space the fence occupied that the fence went away. She started bawling and I held her close assuring her everything would be okay. God I was an idiot!
Around the time she and I met she was hanging around with a lot of party people. They’d do massive amounts of drugs and alcohol and Amy would join in getting as F’d up as possible. But as we started hanging out, she noticed I seldom if ever drank. With me she never had more than two glasses of wine. And once we became an official couple, she sort of let those friends drift away. So, she hadn’t associated with those people in years by the time her suicide attempt happened. But for whatever reason she called her friends and soon I was having to deal with her going out with friends and getting blitzed. At first, I just assumed she was blowing off steam and would get a handle on things. Then I started getting calls at crazy hours. The first was from a hospital in another city. The police found her laying in an intersection blitzed out of her mind with no belongings, no ID, no idea where her car was etc. I went to pick her up at the hospital and then we had to go looking for her car. The very following weekend I got a call from her around midnight telling me she was drunk at a party and some guy was hitting on her. We got disconnected and I finally got through to one of her so-called friends to find out the address of the party. About an hour later I pulled up to the house and walked in not knowing a soul or giving a damn who had a problem with me being there. I opened one of the bedroom doors to see her passed out on a bed and some guy had her pants down to her knees. Perhaps I shouldn’t have broken the guy’s jaw, it was her I was furious at. But as she couldn’t have said no if she wanted to, he had it coming. There was some drama where I seriously thought I was going to have to pull my gun. But thankfully everyone backed down and I carried her over my shoulder and out the door.
That type of partying and crap went on month after month. For those that say I should have put my foot down, I did. I just couldn’t do it while she was puking her guts up. I couldn’t see or hear her barf without doing the same thing. But MANY times we laid down the law and she readily agreed to everything we proposed. I even went to MANY sessions with her therapist and even her shrink set ground rules she needed to follow. That would last a week, maybe two; then it was back to chaos incorporated. I couldn’t begin to list all the many times she and those friends got hammered somewhere and I had no idea where she was. While it seems like I was being a doormat, I just saw someone I cared about truly suffering and wanted to help. I took my vows seriously and foolishly thought she did too. Again, hindsight is 20/20. If I’d known the whole truth, if I’d known what I was facing I would have run for my life. The devil in a Sunday hat would be a great way to describe Amy.
Then one day I was at my mom’s cleaning out gutters and I got a call from one of her so-called friends. There had been an accident at the apartment’s pool. Amy and her friend Brandy had stayed up drinking heavily all night then decided to take a dip in the pool. Amy dove into the shallow end and hit the right side of her head in the process. When they got her out of the pool and revived her, she couldn’t feel anything on her left side. By the time I got there they were loading her into an ambulance to get her to our hospital, to airlift her by helicopter to one of our University Medical centers. I drove down to check on her. They had her strapped down to a board that incapacitated her ability to move anything for days. She cried. I cried. Things were looking very bleak, but I stayed by her side every day and every night. I called Brandy several times to see when she was coming down to check on Amy. I was told there was some guy she was hoping would call her for a date. If he didn’t call her, she might come to the hospital. To say I was livid, scared, insert just about any emotion you want to, and I experienced it.
Finally, I went into Amy’s room and closed the door behind me. I told her to look around the room and asked if she saw anyone but me there. Of course, she replied no and started crying. I laid into her sternly and told her I was at the end of my rope. But I explained I did love her and even if I had to feed her and change her diapers the rest of her life, I was loyal. She was bawling by that point. I told her she was changing every means of contact so those people had no way to reach her. I said they were all scum and the fact not a one cared to show up at the hospital verified they didn’t give a fuck about her. She agreed to all of that and a few days later she started getting a feeling like being stuck with needles in her left foot. She didn’t grasp that was a good sign until the doctor explained any feeling was a good sign. Three days later the feeling had completely returned, and we went home.
Things were better than they had ever been for about four months. She and I felt like best friends again. I could rely on her and trust her. But one day it was about an hour after she was due home and I called. She claimed she’d gone to the other city to get a birthday gift to her brother and run into Brandy. I knew it was BS and I knew hell was about to open right back up again. Same shit, different period of the relationship. She’d get in a manic state and get in the car and drive 300-400 miles until she passed out in her car or had to get a motel room. It was a constant, WTF is going to happen now existence. I freely admit I am a grudge holder. But if you F up and don’t give me time to get over it before you F up again I’m never getting over it. I admit I became distant but continued to do my damnedest to care for her. Sex stopped, and I guess that was my fault. But I don’t do angry sex. If I wanted to knock your teeth out an hour ago, I can assure you I won’t want to get naked with you. Some of you freaks are probably the type that cause intentional drama to make the sex more passionate. If that’s your thing, more power to you. But that ain’t me.
Finally, one day she came home from work with flowers. I thought it was one of those holidays nobody knows about and her company had given her flowers. But she told me they were from a patient named Nolan. (She was a nurse.) I asked her in what parallel universe she thought that was okay. She told me if I didn’t give attention someone else would. I demanded to know when the guys nest appointment was and was there waiting the next time he showed. I explained in detail that Amy was mentally ill and had put me through hell on earth, but I was trying to help her. I told the guy it would be smart to step off, but I understood he was just trying to get a piece of ass. A week later she came up to me livid I’d talked to the guy especially threatening him. She said she was thinking we needed to separate but we’d talk about it when she got home.
When she left, I just sat there in shock. I could NOT believe someone that I’d gone above and beyond the call of duty to help was thinking of kicking me to the curb. I tried to think of one damn thing I had done to deserve what was happening and couldn’t come up with anything. I called her shrink and told her what was going on. She told me that since Amy was her client and not me, she couldn’t discuss Amy. But she explained if Amy did anything in a manic state, that I wasn’t required to forgive her. I knew what her doctor was insinuating, and I started crying like hell. She gave me a number to call if I needed to talk to anyone. So, I got in my car and started driving around to think. I called the number and the lady that answered convinced me to go to the ER and ask for her so she could talk to me in person. I drove to the ER, went in and the lady I’d been talking to told me to follow her. We went into her personal office and I began explaining what had been happening and what had happened that day. Then she began asking me a series of questions which I tried to be as open and honest about as I could. She stood and told me to follow her. We walked down the hall and went into a room where I saw only one chair sitting in the middle of the floor. No TV, no artwork, just that damn chair.
Okay, everyone please pay attention. If you ever go the hospital for anything remotely related to the kind of crap I’m referring to, BE CAREFUL! If they ask if you feel “hopeless”, tell them you have never been more optimistic and had more hope in your life. Lie if you must. But do NOT give them the impression you are at your wits end and losing your shit. Because simply by admitting I felt hopeless about the situation with Amy, they decided to commit me against my own will. I asked if I could just leave or sign a waiver. They had cops guarding the door and they would not let me leave. They were looking to see if there was room for me to stay in the wing Amy stayed when she attempted suicide. But no, no room. They were sending me to the STATE mental institution about 40 miles away. My phone was dying so I wrote down Amy’s, my mom’s and my brother’s numbers. I then called Amy and explained what was going on. She didn’t seem concerned about me in the least. I asked her to make sure our pets were fed that night and she assured me she would before abruptly hanging up. I had to wait on a sheriff’s deputy to get the free time to take me. So I got into that room about 11:00AM and the sheriff arrived about 1AM. The cop was a nice guy really. He bought me something to eat since I hadn’t eaten all day and even let me have a smoke once we reached the nut house. But when THAT door closed behind me it was a BAD feeling.
The first place they took me was into a room to change into my crazy jammies. One dude put a rubber glove on and I thought for a minute they were going to try and cavity search; and I knew how I’d react. Thankfully, they were just protecting their own health while rummaging through my belongings. They took me to meet the night shrink and I explained what had happened previously and that day. She told me I was the most in touch with my own psychology than any patient she’d encountered. She wished she could release me right then, but things had to go through the proper channels. She explained too many people have left hospitals around the world and killed themselves only to have families sue. So now hospitals take no chances and label anyone with any issue to be in need of commitment without will. The fact I was there due to greedy families and vile lawyers didn’t make a damn. I knew all too well that if I said or did the wrong thing, they could keep me against my will indefinitely.
They took me to my room and thank God I didn’t have to share a room. I tried to go to sleep looking at the light outside through the bubbled glass with chicken wire built in. After things I have endured, I am very seldom scared anymore. But that night I was scared as hell. The fact that only my Loony-Tunes wife knew where I was wasn’t a comfort. I tried to get some sleep and hoped to be released first thing in the morning. I had been asleep perhaps an hour when I heard some dude walking down the hall singing old negro spirituals at the top of his lungs. I heard the orderlies confront him and made it to the door in time to see four guys holding him down and another giving him a sedative. NOT, the most reassuring thing to see, but morning came soon enough.
When breakfast arrived, I got to see exactly who my fellow patients were. Having the worst luck on God’s green earth I shouldn’t have been surprised. But the county the loony bin was in had run out of room in their county jail. So, the overflow inmates were being housed in the nuthouse I was in, ON MY WING. I was in there with gang members with so many tattoo tears I had to wonder if they ever let a homie live. Murders, rapists, arsonist, child abusers and of course; the crazies. People having debates with invisible people. People arguing with themselves. People trying to pick imaginary bugs off their skin to the point they would bleed. Basically, if you’ve never witnessed one of those places you can’t imagine it. But as soon as I met with the morning shrink, he again apologized and told me they were releasing me. He said it would be near noon before they could get the paperwork pushed through and I’d have to continue to be viewed as a danger to myself until that happened. He sent me to see another lady who set up therapy for me and set up therapy for Amy and me as a couple. I figured if I was going to endure a hell like I had that night, I should at least try to make a positive out of it.
She let me call Amy at work and she immediately said she couldn’t talk. I made her hold up and asked if she could simply pick me up after work and she said she would. I didn’t care if I sat outside for two days waiting, as long as I wasn’t in THAT place. But around noon when they let me out, I was surprised to see Amy sitting in the lobby waiting on me. Looking back, if I had known what was coming, I might have turned back around and had myself committed. As we were walking to the car, I leaned down to give her a kiss and she pulled away. I assumed she was pissed I made her miss work or some other psycho shit she’d come up with in her mind. We got in the car and pulled off as I began to tell her about the hell I’d endured the previous 24 hours. When I explained I’d arranged for some free counseling for us, she said it wouldn’t do any good. Puzzled I asked why she wouldn’t consider going to therapy. Her response was, “I slept with Nolan Last night” as coldly as you’d ask someone to pass the salt.
Now I have a BAD temper. I am not quick to anger. But when I get pissed, let’s just say it isn’t pretty. But I just sat there in shock, not saying a word. I couldn’t believe what I’d heard. I couldn’t believe after all I’d done to help her; she’d betrayed me. I couldn’t believe my marriage was over. I just sat there not making a sound, not even shedding a tear. I do not know what made her do it, but as we were driving along, she put her hand atop mine. Whatever she was trying to do, it broke my catatonic state, and I began to curse her out like no human has ever been cursed out. I basically destroyed the passenger side of her car. Cracked the window and windshield. Tore the glove compartment door off. Destroyed her radio making sparks fly out. But as God as my witness I somehow, someway did not lay a finger on her. It wasn’t because she was driving, and I didn’t want to cause an accident. At that moment life and death were not on my mind in the least. I am one of those guys that is SO against any male abusing a female. If my tirade was considered verbal abuse then I stand guilty, but some people deserve some verbal abuse from time to time. And the fact I didn’t slam her head through the driver’s side window has to make up for any verbal abuse.
When we got back to the apartment, she attempted to get a few things together to leave. I started taking everything that symbolized “us” and started throwing it in the trash. There are 9 countries in Europe I’ve visited I have no documentation of because I burned every honeymoon photo and negative. She tried to stop me but knew she needed to get the hell out before I decided to throw her out too. We lied about length of separation and were divorced within two months. About a month after that she came by drunk one night and started trying to seduce me. I explained I found her nothing more than a disgusting diseased alley whore only with less sanity. I called her every name in the book and when she left, I attempted to get her a DWI. Cops are idiots that can’t follow instructions. Eventually, she met some guy in Australia playing poker online. She went to visit and married the idiot. I guess he was no bigger an idiot than me, but I can say we were both idiotic. I’m actually glad he took her, and I hope to God she stays Down Under. To any Aussie’s reading this; I’m not saying Amy is the antichrist. But the week after she moved to Sydney, they had the worst dust storms they’d had in 50 years. Coincidence? I don’t think so. So, if you run into a petite blonde named Amy with a boob job and southern US accent when living in or visiting Australia, RUN! Lucifer himself is afraid to hang around that crazy bitch.
The things I want people to take away from this are. Run away from crazy. Yeah sometimes people we love have mental issues. Fuck it, run. Medical professionals exist to take care of those kinds of things. If the patient isn’t a parent or child, lose that crazy fucker so fast they’ll think you were just one of their personalities. If they can’t take their meds on time and act right, lose them immediately. If a doctor uses terms like schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder, run!
Second back to the ER. If hospitals are going to pigeonhole people into being committed against their will don’t go to an ER for mental or depression issues. Call a suicide hotline, a friend, or anyone to talk. PLEASE don’t harm yourself, people care, people want to help. But at times like that a hospital is NOT your friend. I know I will get some grief about saying that. But the system is broken. That woman knew damn well I was no danger to myself. She was just protecting the hospital and board members. She didn’t give a damn what happened to me as long as it wasn’t on her watch.
Finally, if any of you are parents and you get a gut feeling, LISTEN TO YOUR GUT. My dad never liked that cousin and wrote his gut feelings off on the SOB just being weird. If your child’s behavior changes, address it. If circumstances seem suspicious, address it. There are far too many people who can and will prey upon children in this world and I wouldn’t wish my life on anyone. PLEASE keep an eye out for all kids, yours, and others. Don’t be afraid to be the bad guy, alert authorities. Your gut very seldom lies, listen to it. Thank you all for reading such a long tale. It is appreciated. Again, this was all years ago, so I don’t really need advice. This is a worst-case scenario of cheating. But knowing it is possible should keep anyone else from having to live through it. Peace.
TL/DR I was molested as a kid which made me require therapy as an adult. That led me to foolishly believe I could help others. That led me to marry a chick with no loco flags but was crazier than bat shit. She ended up getting me sent to the insane asylum for a night and cheated on me that very night.

The technology was first introduced in the 756 Duochronograph at the International Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show in Basel in 2003, replacing the ice hardening technique for nickel-free watch cases first presented in 2002. Originally TEGIMENT Technology was only used on stainless steel cases. The term is now used to refer to all materials with a hardened surface. The watch does not have any marks anywhere except for a couple of very light scratches on the clasp. The watch is is complete with box and warranty card dated July 2018. Good luck with raffle!

2020.09.29 04:10 Morloft New Tarkov Update Structure and Wipe Schedule.

I think we could all agree on the fact that more patches more often is pretty cool. Adding a bit of content and some features every month or so is very interesting. I agree with that. And a lot of players like it too. Whether you are a casual or a hardcore player, having new content, fixes and features is very cool.
What else is very cool? Getting major updates, like new guns, maps, expansions and major features. Which is what normally brings in the more hype, and the more people back to the game.
Anything else a lot of people like? Wipes, the beginning of a wipe is what brings in the more people and what makes everyone fall in love with all the feelings Tarkov can give you. Every single shitty item you find has value to yourself, whether its for trading an armor, meds or even for the hideout or a Task/future Tasks.
The early wipe is what a lot of people love, the competition with friends to become the first one to level 40, or who will get his kappa first. Getting access to the flea market or labs. Unlocking that sweet M1a trade or getting those Class 4 armors first so you survive more.
I love Tarkov, I've fallen in love 3 years ago, and now I can say I stream it full time and still love to do those 0-40 or kappa runs, even in the middle of a wipe. BUT I think we need a bit more organized, scheduled wipes/major updates.
Let me explain my point.

Keep it like this but hold on to the things which are "interesting" (guns, rigs, armor etc.) and put them in the Major updates.

Should be brought in only at wipe Dates, every 4 or 5 months.

We need 2 PMCs, as soon as possible.
  1. Softcore PMC ; could keep their progress for lets say 12 months. Wipe once a year.
  2. Hardcore PMC ; could get a +15% Xp on everything, including skills, raid Xp and masteries. Wipe every 4 -5 months.
Having that, built this way, I think, would greatly help new players and casuals. As well as keep the game fresh for hardcore players and keep Tarkov interesting to watch.
Also, bringing back the Leaderboard or add a Ranking system would be perfect with this revision.
Let me know what you think and what you would like to add. All of this is a suggestion, let's talk about all this without being Salty.
PLEASE REFRAIN FROM ASKING TO REMOVE CHEATERS, ITS NOT THE POINT OF THIS THREAD.

2020.09.29 03:50 thegoodguy455 Sexuality Issue after Life-Changing Move

I posted this on a few other subreddits, but I really want advice about this so I will post it again:
I am 22 years old, and I got sort of kicked out of my parent's home last year. Let me explain. I was in college last year, at 21 years old, and I got suspended for a year from college for cheating. My parents were very upset with me, especially considering that I was still a freshman, even though I went to college at 18. Some family members found out, and a much older cousin (who is in her 40s and an attorney) offered to let me live with them. They live across the country, but I still went because my parents were so upset.
This is where the issue starts. My cousin is married and her husband didn't really like the idea of me going to live with them. The first night I was there, they left to go to dinner and when they got back, I asked them if I could go next time. My cousin's husband said "You will spend whatever money your parents send you and cook for yourself, unless you are willing to do what we say". I did not understand that so I asked my cousin and she said "You are an adult, you need to grow up, and we want to help you do that". Later that night, I was going to the bathroom and her husband pulled me aside and said
"Look, if you want to be treated like my wife is treated in this house, then you will do for me what my wife does for me."
I had no idea what that meant until the next night. My cousin came into my room and told me to come with her. Her husband was sitting on their bed nude and they basically told me they wanted me to join in with them in sex. My cousin could see I was shocked and she said "He doesn't have any STDs and I am on birth control, so you have nothing to worry about." The rest was history. We had sex for the 4 months I lived with them, quite frequently. They cooked for me and treated me as well as they treated each other. Her husband had sex with me, ejaculated in my butt, all that. I got to fuck my cousin a lot too. However, when my cousin was on her period or didn't feel like sex with her husband, then it was my butt that got his dick.
It did have a lasting effect on me. When I finally got back "home" to my parents, I told them I was moving out. I got a job , got an apartment, and moved out. But, sometimes I feel like what my cousin and her husband did has had a negative emotional effect on me. On one hand, I was glad to be away from home, but on the other hand, I basically engaged in incest and homosexuality for several months. I feel confused now, and, although I am independent now, I really don't know whether I want a relationship with a woman or a man, and I don't know whether I am gay, straight, or bisexual. I just feel so confused. I got a call from my cousin the other day and she told me that if I wanted to go back to college, then I could come live with them and attend a local community college. She made no mention of all the sex I had last year with them when I lived there. I had an STD test a few months ago, and I am STD-free, despite having sex with a man for 4 months, so my cousin told me the truth about that. I feel like I love them as much as I love my parents (maybe more), but I don't know how to feel about what happened. I understand that I wasn't being productive when I was in college, but I still have trouble dealing with what happened at my cousin's home.
How can I cope with this and how should I move forward with having a dating life or should I just refrain from dating for now?

2020.09.29 03:32 CyrusWaugh Every Taylor Swift Song Ranked (2006-2020) Part 2

67. The Lucky One (Red)
I view this one as her missing her old life, if we had a path to stardom, there is no doubt we'd all take it. But the path is like a contract, with hidden messages that will screw you over at times, great messaging and irony throughout all of it.

66. Haunted (Speak Now)
The orchestra is amazing, this is some of the amazing experimentation I was talking about, they capture every emotion Taylor envisioned for this song, and they build to such an emotional climax.

65. Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince (Lover)
After watching the documentary of the same name last night this song risen by like 15 spots. You can see her mentality at the time of writing this record. I've had a complete 180 in how I view the production. I still view it as inferior to her old high school style, but that still doesn't mean its bad, the cheerleader part is ingenious, as is a lot of the song.

64. Speak Now (Speak Now)
Man a lot of people seem to dislike this song, I don't see it, I find it so charming, when was the last time you heard a song about crashing a wedding like this one, it is very descriptive, and ties into the theme of suppressed emotions.

63. Paper Rings
It is pretty simple, but the message is so wholesome. 2018 was so many wedding songs, some worked, like Speechless, or Homesick, and some didn't like Big Big Plans or Good As You. This isn't a first dance song, but it gives a better message than all 4 of them. (scratch that, Speechless is still better)

62. Red (Red)
Red is a song I adore, from its relation of emotion to colorization, its blending of pop and country. The lyrics are great, the melody is iconic, but I CANNOT stand the weird audio effect they put in the word red. It annoys the living daylights out of me.

61. Change (Fearless)
I relate to this message so hard, and maybe that's why it is ranked as high as it is. The usage of the word hallelujah, its a great inspiration for overcoming adversity. It's an iconic melody, and I can't recommend this enough especially if you're feeling down.

60. Call It What You Want (Reputation)
Originally this song was supposed to be waving a white flag to the critics, where she's saying call it what you like, she doesn't care anymore, great way to close out a record, but this doesn't hold up at all in the Lover Era.

59. Tied Together With A Smile (Taylor Swift)
After re-watching Miss Americana the documentary, I was listening to the album one last time before writing this and I shed a tear or two, after reminding myself of her insecurities of personal image and her eating disorder. I don't think that is what the song was originally about so I can't really give it bonus points for that but now I get a whole new perspective every time I hear this.

58. This Is Me Trying (Folklore)
This song highlights how she has to juggle so many things in her life, songwriting, recording, touring and personal family issues. How she acknowledges she isn't a 16 year old anymore. She's done so much in 14 years, won several accolades, become a political advocate, even though I don't agree with what she stands for, I'm proud regardless.

57. Tell Me Why (Fearless)
This song has a lot of fun instrumentally and lyrically. Definitely the last 2 songs beat it in a lot, but it blends pop and country so well, and really is a blueprint for what mainstream country should follow, even if this song is dated.

56. I Know Places (1989)
Definitely leans on the more bombastic side of things, but with some intellectualism sprinkled throughout it, its fun and clever which is something you don't get a lot of in the Reputation to Lover Era.

55. Mary's Song (Oh My My My) (Taylor Swift)
The story telling is so good, and the instrumentation is great, but it misses the one aspect Love Story hits which is great melodies and vocals. I'm not saying its bad, I'm just saying there is better stuff she's done, at this point we've reached the 8/10 range, and a lot of songs get heavily competitive.

54. A Place In This World (Taylor Swift)
One of my favorite melodies from her first record, and it's my last year in high school so I'm giving it bonus points for the messaging. It sounds great as does 90% of her first record.

53. My Tears Ricochet (Folklore)
I need a bit more time with this song, its obviously well written and sung, but it really only succeeds when you get the full context of what it's about, give it more time this could end up in the top 30.

52. This Love (1989)
Similar to how I Almost Do relies too much on I Bet, this one relies too much on This Love, but still it's a great song regardless. Beautiful and kind of haunting at the same time.

51. I Knew You Were Trouble (Red)
A great introduction to the pop world, instant classic for her, and demonstrates how to do pop well and not fake it like a 50% of country stars, signifying the best of Taylor Swift was coming soon.

50. Enchanted (Speak Now)
Enchanted brings out this shimmery feeling I really only see in Disney musicals, which is amazing. When was the last time you said to yourself this country song sounds like a ballad in a Disney musical? It is beautiful and builds up to a great climax.

49. Epiphany (Folklore)
A great dedication to those fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, still have issue with the reference to the storming of the beaches but hopefully I'll let go of it after a while.

48. Superman (Speak Now: Deluxe Edition)
What a great way to show off unique storytelling, I never thought I'd adore a country song talking about Clark Kent but here we are, beautifully narrated, and shows off this new style of writing which would get better and better as years passed.

47. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Red)
Instant classic right here, not the most emotional (at all) not the best written, one hell of a time and there is no doubt about it.

46. Exile ft. Bon Iver (Folklore)
One of her best collaborations ever, we get 2 different perspectives and those are often the most emotional, I don't really get the whole film line, that still eludes me and feels out of place, but the climax of the track makes up for it.

45. So It Goes... (Reputation)
I've stated many times I will never go to a club, I've vowed never to drink, I think it is just a place to hook up and that grosses me out. But if there ever was a reason for me to go to a club, it would be to jam to this song, it is one of my all time favorite club anthems.

44. Mean (Speak Now)
The acoustics are some of her best, its goofy, I love how she says pathetic it still makes me laugh, I'm still shocked it won a Grammy, being how goofy it was, but still well deserved.

43. Long Live (Speak Now)
A great way of looking towards the future, not so much for Taylor as it would be a downwards spiral for emotionally and I sympathize for her, but for me it gives me hope and makes me believe all of dreams will be achieved.

42. Teardrops On My Guitar (Taylor Swift)
Just because its #42 doesn't mean I think it's dull. Lyrically the using of names still is great, but a lot of the lyrics don't really hold up to my standards today, I'm not asking you to agree I just hope you can understand it.

41. The Other side Of The Door (Fearless: Platinum Edition)
Little simple stories are the best. How she's testing this person to see if he is willing to commit and endure, and he fails to do so, and how she blames her stubborn pride. Great storytelling plain and simple.

40. Dancing With Our Hands Tied (Reputation)
Great imagery and messaging, I view there are two ways to interpret this song's message and both are equally great. It is my late night street jam kind of like Blinding Light's by the Weeknd.

39. Come In With The Rain (Fearless: Platinum Edition)
A lot of the platinum edition songs are so good, she's done calling out his name and leaves her window open just a little bit because she's hoping still he'd come back. It is extremely well rounded as are a lot of songs are from this point on.

38. Ours (Speak Now: Deluxe Edition)
My favorite of all the deluxe tracks, is one of her best, and before she was really obsessed with her public image, she could churn out a great song. It is great melodically and we lyrically with the details of elevator buttons, and gaps in teeth. This is one of the more glanced over tracks of all the bonus tracks which makes sense, the more intellectual songs get their popularity goes down which is a darn shame.

37. Clean (1989)
Still one of my least favorites in the percussive sense. But it does a good job in ending the emotional story this record tells. Clean represents the aftermath of a breakup so well, and only going through the storm are we able to finally be free.

36. Fifteen (Fearless)
From this point on honestly every melody is iconic. Fifteen while bringing this wave of nostalgia that makes me feel like a kid again, isn't one her best written songs, it's pretty dated and corny so a lot of people these days won't really connect to it as much as I do.

35. How You Get The Girl (1989)
A fun time from beginning to end, little simple pieces of advice for the dos and don'ts of a relationship and in way calls back older songs. Brings out what I love about a majority of 1989, fun times, neat lyrics, and loads of synth.

34. Innocent (Speak Now)
There is so much I love about Innocent but it is such a long song and I'd need to go into every detail and I don't have much time. In a way its an anti-power ballad, as it doesn't really rise to this big epic moment, it stays mostly grounded which is something I love, it has a meaningful message, my only real complaint is that the opener is out of place.

33. Mad Woman (Folklore)
Mad Woman is kind of Reputation's message in one song, after so much time poking her she's fighting back, people say she's petty, she'll be even pettier, she's too angry, you get the idea. Great reinvention of talking about reputations, and I doubt she'll ever stop singing about it, but I'll take it in this style.

32. Bad Blood (1989)
Bad ass, all that needs to be said, it has a tremendous bridge, Kendrick Lamar does a great job (unlike future) I don't really see the hate for this song, the point of the song is to be petty and it doesn't come off as over petty at least to me, great single and one of the best of 2014-2015.

31. Last Kiss (Speak Now)
It is the 5 stages of grief in a song, we get every gritty detail, from sadness, anger, denial, not so much of bargaining and by the end of the song we reach acceptance, its a beautiful ride for all 6 minutes of it. And it just barely missed the top 30 if I'm being honest.

Now that we're in the top 30, I can go into these songs in greater detail, and show my full appreciation for them.

30. Breathe ft. Colbie Caillat (Fearless)
It isn't as compelling as Last Kiss, but I just connected more to this on an emotional level. How letting go of someone is so hard, but for us to move on and be better people, we need cut the loose for both your sakes. And it may be painful, like holding your breath, its supposed to, it's kind of like working your muscles, in order for us to get stronger, we need to feel pain. The chorus is so nostalgic, while I agree it is pretty simple and repetitive, I don't care, as my emotions get the best of me. This song has stuck with me, for so many reasons, my personal struggles, the vocals, the instrumentation. I'm still bitter it didn't become a single but hey, what are you gonna do.

29. Picture To Burn (Taylor Swift)
This was either the first or second Taylor Swift song I could remember hearing and therefore it has a special place in my heart. It does pander to southern audiences I'm not denying that, but its rocking country feel is so good. One of the best sounding tracks on her first record, and yes in terms of messaging involvement this song would land itself way lower, but I have such an emotional connection and how important this song was to me as it is arguably one of the major reasons I listen to country music today.

28. Begin Again (Red)
Her farewell letter to country music couldn't have been better. About how love isn't a cycle of bitterness and moral high ground. But it is truly about emotional connection and sincerity. Little things like laughing at jokes, coming early, pulling a chair out. Love isn't a glamorous story of epic proportions as most try to view it, it is pretty underwhelming, but I find the underwhelming details more compelling than anything. Red definitely has its issues but the beginning and ending of this record is perfect. Even though I view this as a pop record, she still has so much respect for the genre, its not a drum loop song, not about going to a club, nothing bombastic, just real instrumentation honest lyricism and compelling vocals.

27. Shake It Off (1989)
I admit Shake It Off, isn't anything truly special, but it is one of the songs that define Taylor as an artist. And I love it regardless of all of its problems and false promises. It's a jam, which at the time, was her taking the high ground of addressing haters. Shake It Off out of the big 5 of 1989, is the most unique instrumentally, it isn't using synth and as a marching band type feel, with marching snares, trumpets and Bari sax and as someone who does marching band, this has a soft spot. Some people hate the bridge. I don't, there are arguably 10 songs better than it critically, but for once I'm gonna stand by my ears not my brains.

26. The Archer (Lover)
The Archer is one of the more emotional songs on Lover. About a collage of themes, the media's perspective of her, her dating habits of men, and arguably politics. And if it is this is the best song about politics she's ever written, Only The Young is tedious and comes off as pandering, the man is her worst song by a lot, but the archer addresses politics not in the way you think, its all about her perspective of it, I don't have to agree with your politics, just present it in a compelling manner, The Archer does it so well. And besides that, she asks herself the question when it comes to love interests which is one her most compelling lines. Who would dare leave her, but who would dare stay. It is heartbreaking, emotional, and it adds up to one of the best songs on Lover.

25. Mirrorball (Folklore)
Mirrorball is one of her most honest songs yet, how writing songs can emotionally tear one apart, Taylor isn't know for being the most fun artist, or the most powerful vocally, she's known for being one of the most honest. And this highlights that perspective of herself, while we see her shine, there are cracks for every honest story she's written into song. But she's so passionate about what she does, she will keep pushing for us, for her fans. One of the most compelling songs I've heard from her yet.

24. Getaway Car (Reputation)
The documentary once again boosted the ranking of a song. I felt so engaged in her songwriting process, its so interesting and fun. Getaway Car is a prime example of singing about relationships in new and profound ways. The Getaway Car being Tom Hiddleston and how he was just an escape from her previous relationship. And the song is her saying sorry for what she did to him. One of her best metaphors yet. I think my love for Getaway Care is just gonna grow as time moves on, but who knows, I love the rest of these songs just as much or even more.

23. Cardigan (Folklore)
At this point yeah I think Cardigan is a better metaphor than getaway car, mostly because of how it ties into the story of James & Betty, but that might not last long. Cardigan is a great first single, similar to Blank Space, she says random things that don't really correlate to each other. One of the most vivid songs on Folklore, which is why I put it above Getaway Car, in terms of message its better but Cardigan paints an amazing picture of this world she's singing about. It gives the melancholy reflective emotion I don't really know how to describe and after listening to the 3 remaining songs of this story, everything just makes sense. Grammy noms are coming soon I have no doubt this will be nominated as it should be.

22. Welcome To New York (1989)
One of my favorite album openers ever, it gives me such a rush, it is what 22 failed to do for me, which was be relatable, look this song isn't the smartest, I'm not saying it is, but it draws a fine line between what pop tends to do which is either be smart in their writing or vocals, or just go for a catchy beat. It also serves as a welcome to the pop world, she finally left the genre holding her back and would've destroyed her if you think about it. It's a well written smash that would've fit perfectly with the big 5, and I'm still bitter it didn't.

21. Wildest Dreams (1989)
1989 had so many great singles, this was its big ballad. My perception of this song is a one night stand, and how she knows this can damage her but she doesn't care. Chances are these 2 will never see each other again, so he's asking him to remember her in this way and not the (you know what) The melody while only 6 years old, feels even older somehow. Production is around 9.5/10 for me, lyrically is around 7.5/10, the bridge really boosts that score, and vocally it is around a 9/10. Wildest Dreams set a standard for a lot of pop ballads for years to come and not many have reached it or surpassed it.

20. Back To December (Speak Now)
I've met people who've said this song isn't really mature, I've met people who say it isn't really emotional, but I've yet to meet someone who said it isn't good. I think it is all of those things, Taylor Swift was know as the girl who wrote the best break up songs mostly about douche bags. So for her to take the blame is a sign of real maturity. Her vocals reflect the sincerity of her apology, an the orchestra elevates everything. I wish she did more work with an orchestra the tracks that use it are so good. Back To December, is one of those songs that makes you go back to terrible mistakes, awkward moments that could've gone differently. This was one of her major stepping stones in how she writes songs, she still wrote breakup songs but it would be in more unique ways, some not as good, but a few have surpassed its greatness.

19. Look What You Made Me Do (Reputation)
Yeah I love this song:
Deal With It
I think it is one of her best written songs, most just say the chorus is garbage and skip it. They don't check anything else, a lot of effort was put in this song after you get past the chorus. The pre chorus was a well added touch, people kept complaining about Taylor, so she decided to become their critiques, and come back with a vengeance. The song broke the internet, it shocked the world leaving most people's initial reaction as confusion, I thought that too, but over time I've come to appreciate this song for what it is, as has a lot fans. Most still won't give this song a chance, they won't even give the record a chance because of this song, you're doing yourself a major disservice. A neat thing I realized is that with most pop songs, they go for the ears instead of the brains. This one goes straight for the brain and ignores the ears entirely, which is something pop should do a lot more often.

18. August (Folklore)
August is the 2nd part of the saltbox house chapter, giving us the conflict of this story, coming from the perspective of an unknown girl. How she seduced this boy James, how overtime he felt guilty, and how it tore a rift between the 2. How she thought they were in love but it was all an illusion, the entire of month of August. And now everything she thought was love was lie, and how she describes it like slipping though time, bottles of wine sipped away. One of the best bridges she's ever done, giving us fictional emotion that feels so real. It makes you invested in this story line, like a book or a film and you can't look or well in this case hear away.

17. Cornelia Street (Lover)
Cornelia Street takes a page in her personal love life, which she doesn't usually talk about, she mostly talks about the aftermath of a relationship, not the present. How Cornelia Street, represents so much she's invested into a relationship and she's so afraid to lose it all, lose the memorization of creaks in the floor, playing cards and board games, she leaves but unlike others, he goes after her, and gets her to stay, if you notice, in past songs, the one thing the dude in most of her relationships, was willing to endure, willing to stay, but he is willing, that's the cherry on top for me, Lover is so far away from being an amazing record, but it gives me some of the most satisfying moments in any album.

16. You Belong With Me (Fearless)
The most well known melody in her entire catalog. I know people who hate pop country, and can't help sing along to this, it is so heartwarming, silly, encapsulates the narrative of the small town boy and girl better than almost every song that has before and after. I think everyone at some point has felt this way about a person, and if you haven't well than lucky you. It captured everything I loved about the 2000's all American pop, its silliness, emotional value and nostalgia, I could back to this song 15 years from now and feel the same way I do about it now. It is one of the only reasons I tolerated pop at the time, club anthems weren't my style and nor was people Britney Spears, Beyonce or Rihanna and I could go on. The song is an iconic piece of pop culture, that generations from now will never be forgotten.

15. White Horse (Fearless)
White Horse was the baby steps to her getting more mature. As we got into the 2010's the all American genre was fading away, and in a similar way, she acknowledges this isn't a lovey dovey story like You Belong With Me, this is real, and she's sick of trying to achieve that story, and it's time to cut this dude love. And now he's everything she's ever wanted, but that phase of her life is over. So she'll keep looking, because the fairy tale is fake, and move on with her life. I've felt that way and this song helped me mature and see new perspective in love.

14. Never Grow Up (Speak Now)
I still view this as the best track of the record but I'll put it lower for its emotional impact. I think the message is so compelling. How she doesn't want to grow up, kids like dream about being astronauts and presidents, they don't understand how big and often cruel the world can be. During our time innocence we don't often experience, true heartbreak, sadness, stress so the little details of going to the movies, dancing in PJ's move me so much. The vocals have a touch of sincerity and wisdom into them, and we build to a soft climax, about how she wishes she never grew up, money and fame is great and all, but her truest possessions are her family and friends, and those will fade away in time. It's a wholesome simple message that is so powerful and speaks volumes and I think this song should get more appreciation than arguably any of the one ahead as they are more well known.

13. Love Story (Fearless)
Unfortunately no song from Fearless could make the top 10, makes me sad, but I knew at least one record was going to miss out, I'm shocked it was this one. But still, this is the equation for a great Taylor Swift song, great instrumentation/production, iconic melodies, great storytelling, and clear crisp melodies, that last one really only applies to her country songs. Love Story, is one of the most well rounded songs in all of country, I don't understand how someone can hate it, the only opinion I can really agree with is the corniness of Romeo & Juliet, but still I love that this is what the song is about. We get phenomenal story progression, to how they met, sneaking out, a conflict and an emotional climax with a great ending. One of my favorite fiddle tracks, if I'm ever sick of what's on the radio I'll just play this a nostalgic actual country song. A lot of Fearless could be argued to be not country, but Love Story is and that isn't an opinion, its a fact.

12. Delicate (Reputation)
Delicate also claims the title for my favorite music video from Taylor Swift. The rhythm is so calming, and makes everything around me disappear. Which really blows my mind, which is what the song is about. For roughly a year she disappeared from the media's eyes in 2016. The verses highlight this as she question's if what she said was okay, is it okay to let this person in my life? And how during this time period, she experiences more freedom than ever. I can always rely on Delicate to relax me whenever I'm stressed out. Delicate is an excellent way to enter Reputation, most are so afraid to touch the record, Delicate is the best produced song on the record and my 3rd favorite produced song regardless of albums. Never before has a song's production reflect the message of a song as well as this song did for me.

11. Lover (Lover)
Just barely not making it into the top 10 is Lover. Which is a great first dance song, I've seen people use it, and this feels like the vows of her if she ever gets married. She sees herself at a point where they don't have to fight for moral high ground. They have such a well understanding of each other, they leave Christmas lights till January, let friends crash. As well as the fact that I view this as her best bridge yet. It is endearing and kind of provocative. Lover is a great blend of country and pop, I'm kinda shocked this wasn't promoted there, I would rather have be number one for 20 weeks then see the Git Up at #1. I'm a little bitter that Bad Guy won over it, I get it Bad Guy is insanely catchy but Grammy's are about critically choosing a winner, does anyone really think Bad Guy is a critical masterpiece? Lover is her coming full circle, she doesn't need to sing about boys being douche bags anymore, as she's found the 1 for her.

Finally I've reached the top 10, this has spun around a lot over the past week, 10th originally peaked at #6, this list went through some crazy changes

10. Betty (Folklore)
Betty is an evolved version of Love Story in terms of structure, it has everything it does, great instrumentation, storytelling, the whole package. But what puts it above it at least for me is the greater emotional investment. I've gotten to know the story of Romeo & Juliet in less than 4 minutes, and I was totally invested in the story, but with Betty, we've gotten to understand this story for the past 3 wrongs, arguably 4 if you count Exile. You wonder how this will be resolved, will it have a sad ending, like in most realistic circumstances. Or will we get a semi-unrealistic ending. We get the second option but at least we get to understand why this is the way it is. Take out the 3 other songs this takes out of the emotional impact this song gives. It's a new way for how she approaches music and I'm here for all of it.

9. Dear John (Speak Now)
While I view this as inferior to Never Grow Up, I cannot deny the emotional impact this has had for country music and her entire fan base. I enjoy every moment of this near 7 minute song, how she's felt like she had to fight to enjoy this relationship. And now that he's out of her life she gets a new perspective of love, it isn't clear cut, it isn't always happy, Dear John really was one of her biggest stepping stones in singing about relationships, up to here you'll see a lot of stories about a sweet sincere relationship and after Speak Now, you never really see that until Reputation. This relationship has scarred her, I realized this honestly hours before writing this. Dear John hurts so much, and was the most emotional song for me, for about 2 years. I remember skipping halfway through this song like an idiot because I got bored, never again, whenever it is on, I stay and listen to its entirety. Dear John is an monumental piece of the long and winding road of her career, and it's a piece I'll cherish, till I die.

8. State Of Grace (Red)
Is my second favorite produced track, it is a pop song that doesn't really rely on electronics, I get real drums, guitars. It is a legendary album opener, while I prefer Mr. Misunderstood as a song, it never really made sense to me why it was the opener to the album. State Of Grace right out of the bat tells you this is different, and different couldn't have been better. State Of Grace while 8th is #1 in what I want to see live, it gives a sense of freedom most songs can only dream of achieving. It sums up how I felt when I first felt in love. Trigger, one of her harshest critics gave this a 2 guns up. 2 for crying out loud!!! If he gives it a score that high you know it is good. State Of Grace climbed the highest out of any song on this list, I originally had it at I think #16. I was reminded of that time when I really first experienced love, because I tend to keep my emotions to myself when around people. And I told myself no, this has to be higher, which is why no song from Fearless is in the top 10. Man the 2010's were so good for a lot of stuff, Eric Church's Springsteen, Josh Turner's Why Don't We Just Dance, and Red, which made me creep into pop just a little bit after 2-3 years.

Okay Time To Bust Out The Tier List:
134-132 You Got The Bad Taylor Swift Songs
131-116 You Got The Decent Taylor Swift Songs
115-81 You Got The Good Taylor Swift Songs
80-38 You Got The Amazing Taylor Swift Songs
37-13 You Got The Iconic Taylor Swift Songs
12-8 Are The Masterpieces
And At 7-1 You Got The BIG BOI'S

These songs are the reason I love music regardless of genre.
7. Illicit Affairs (Folklore)
Illicit Affairs is the best track of Folklore plain and simple. She has mastered the dual perspective storytelling tool she's used for several years, we get every detail going through their minds in a clear vivid understandable and arguably relatable manner. We go through James' mind, what to tell his friends, where to go. The unnamed girl's mind is whether or not to wear perfume for him. Don't get too attached, but she does regardless, and ruins her image for him and be rewarded with rejection. The music begins to swell as we get catch up to the reveal that James told Betty everything. I'm definitely in the minority here as not many tend to see this as one of her best, it brings us to the emotional climax of the story in the album, my favorite point of a story isn't really the build up or the ending, its the climax, and this is one hell of a climax, my first listen I told myself woah, and kept listening onward.

6. Soon You'll Get Better ft. The Dixie Chicks (Lover)
Lover's emotional peak is without a doubt this track. The first verse broke me, my favorite verse in any Taylor Swift song, nothing else from the song really tops it. It is heartbreaking, this isn't her singing about her personal problems, it is dedicated to her mother diagnosed with cancer, and you may wonder, why would you bring this up in a song? Well she brings this up, and that's because she might not make it. I'm strictly assuming, I know very little about her condition as of today, but if this were true I would rather keep this as private as I could, but I assume she's running out of time and this is a eulogy for her, god I hope it isn't, I pray it isn't. I can her emotion, and empathize as I was in a similar position just a few months ago, thankfully this person came out of this okay. This song prepared me for the worst, but now I view it in a sense of slight joy and hope, that if you have someone who is terminally ill, it's never too late.

5. New Years Day (Reputation)
New Years Day is the best love story she has ever written. It isn't a glamorous love story, with beautiful gowns, clubs, unique story telling. Just vivid honesty. How a new years kiss is meaningless, its just a shallow tradition, how true love can be found in some of the most uninteresting areas, like cleaning up after a party, that is what I love to see. I don't by the BS, of hooking up at a party and boom you're married for the rest of your lives. Chances are if I ever get married, the story of how I met my significant other will be pretty similar to New Years Day. As is for a lot of people. You may never enjoy Reputation as a whole but you can enjoy this song. It isn't this big bombastic trap song, it's not a 80's synth jam which I adore. It's just simple piano chords and masterful lyrics.

4. Tim McGraw (Taylor Swift)
Tim McGraw I'm 90% sure is the first Taylor Swift song I remember. In today's standards yeah it sounded like an FGL song. But before the bro era, I could actually enjoy singing about dirt roads eyes and jeans. The acoustics are beautiful, we fast forward to where the guy is gone from her life. But one thing connects them, their love for one artist. I don't even need to say the artist's name that's irrelevant. Love for an artist adoration for their music can speak volumes, my friends listen to songs for how catchy it is. They question my taste of music, I always say, I'm here for the emotions a song gives, the stories it provides, one day they'll understand at least I hope, because they are missing out on so much. The story of Tim McGraw has been done in bigger ways, one being Springsteen by Eric Church, but as much as I love Springsteen, how much I adore it, Tim McGraw is simply better.

3. Style (1989)
Style is the best produced song in the history of ever. That's really a personal preference. Now you're probably thinking I'm full of crap putting Style in the bronze spot. But it is my favorite song of hers plain and simple, I listen to it more than any song in any playlist of mine. So there was no way I couldn't put it in the top 10. Is it irrational yes, but I don't care. Yes it is pretty shallow lyrically, but the instrumentals and production are flawless, which is next to impossible to do. Style captures everything of the 1989 era I adore, irresistible melodies, 80's appreciation. This is one of the only songs that don't really have a bridge. But it doesn't need it, it's not a story, its an emotional rush. I lose all of my inhibitions when listening to this song. I never do that, even to songs I relate to so hard. For 6 long years no song has been able to touch, no artist could claim the spot, not Eric Church, Cody Jinks, Luke Combs or Tyler Childers not even Castle On The Hill which is my favorite pop song, and chances are its going to stay that way for a long time or possibly forever.

2. Blank Space (1989)
Without a doubt the best song about her reputation. While not flawlessly produced, it is a flawless pop song. It is her best pop song by far. It is sassy, well written, produced and great story wise. Some might complain of why these 2 pop songs are so high, but 80% of the top 10 are country songs, well 70% if you don't count State Of Grace. This is my opinion and I will be honest, I'm not going to pander to certain audiences, this is just how I view it. Blank Space is one of those songs where you could release it any time and it will always cement itself as a timeless classic, the are very few songs capable of doing that. For years people questioned her date life, complained and this is the only time she look the low ground and came out triumphant. For years people have taken advantage of her in relationships, that is evident with a majority of her output from Fearless to Red. But now she has all the power in a relationship, while I don't think its right, this feels like a mid way point in her story telling, she's taking jabs at the media and comes out victorious. If she wants someone gone she can do it with a snap of her fingers, its a (lord help my soul) yass queen moment. Dear god what did I just say. Still it's a great song, I'm everyone's heard it at one point, maybe even tap their foot to it who knows. It's a timeless piece of art that will be cherished for years to come.
And Now The Moment You've All Been Waiting For What Is In My Opinion The Very Best Taylor Swift Song In Existence:

1. All To Well (Red)
All To Well feels in a way the inverse of Dear John, Dear John talked about the dark parts of a relationship, whereas All To Well, gives us the entire package. We get the good and the bad, the good is painted into my mind like a dream, and the bad feels like a tragedy. Most people like the lyric about breaking the promise is their favorite it's great no doubt about it, I take a bit of a more weird path, I prefer the line where he's described as kid with his cheeks red, and how he used to be a kid with glasses in a twin sized bed. Giving an introduction to innocence and it makes the break up even more emotional as she makes it seem like this can work out if they try hard enough, but unfortunately she knows this situation all to well, god the songwriting on this track is damn close to flawless. And then we go back to the scarf, we've come full circle, and it feels like being hit by an emotional garbage truck. All To Well stands tall above the rest because of its emotional honesty, the most emotional I've really ever seen her. One day I'll see her perform this song live, that is on my bucket list, I've never cried to this song shockingly, like Soon You'll Get Better, but no song has tugged at my emotions this hard, not even Mr. Misunderstood, my all time favorite song. It is a masterpiece, if you've never heard this song, stop reading this. You need to hear this song. All To Well, has taken everything I loved about Taylor Swift, songwriting, honesty, production, instrumentation, vocals, and brought it all together to create a masterpiece. I may give Style, Blank Space and Tim McGraw 10/10's but if I was as critical as I could be those songs would be lower.

2020.09.29 03:29 FDS_fan “LOVE HAS NO AGE” IS AN IDEA PERPETUATED BY PATRIARCHY

I spent nearly half my life being preyed on by older men (I thought it was love at the time). I started “talking” with a 26 year old, only when I was 17. One of the first things men say to me is, “wow you look so young.” Well yes you idiot, that’s because I am young (i am a 25 year old who looks like a 16 year old). When I was 21, I met a guy at a college bar who told me he was 25. I foolishly hung out with this idiot on a date without screening him, and then through a quick internet search i found out he was lying about his age (he was actually 30). First of all why is a 30 year old, who is doing really well for himself career-wise, at a college bar?! By the time I found out his real age, he already had used me for his physical pleasures. When I confronted him about him lying to me about his age, his response was, “well we met at a bar and I don’t think it’s a big deal.” He belittled me for feeling used and lied to. Through dating these older guys, I became obsessed with looking young. I thought this was my defining feature, my brand— something that I must obsessively maintain so men stay into me. I used to be ok with all of this because of the idea that is so foolishly promoted in media that “love has no age.” All of this to justify barely legal girls dating men in their 30s, 40s and 50s. This is disgusting. I wish I had known better than to sell my youth to older men who preyed on my innocence. So no hun, older guys aren’t more mature. You can find HVMs of your own age too. You have so much more to offer to the world than just your youth and beauty. Chances are if a much older guy is chasing you— women his age probably dont want him and he’s a pedophile who’s into younger looking women. Not to mention, if you’re planning on having children with this older guy, HE can put you at risk for a complicated pregnancy (yes, men have a biological clock too).

2020.09.29 03:25 peachtreeproblem 24 [F4A] #peachtreecorners - Another night, another post

Tinder has disappointed me once again with a lackluster hookup. I really want something kind of frequent with someone I get along well with personality wise. Not looking to date quite yet after my previous relationship that ended in Feb (bad timing for quarantine).
I’m 24, dirty blonde, 5’10, 250lbs (so def plus size, but I keep a somewhat busy life or try to with covid happening), curvy, young professional. I don’t do any hard drugs and I’m disease free (both STDs and Covid as of friday last week).
I like traveling, drinking, and reading trashy romance novels. I’m currently addicted to Among Us and Don’t Starve Together as far as games go. SNL is constantly playing in the background. Horror movies and anime are also frequently on my tv. I have a pretty large indoor plant collection. I can have a pretty dry and dark sense of humor. Music taste wildly varies.
Looking for someone 24-40, pretty open about age. Also okay with men or women, I’m bisexual. Closer location wise is preferable but I also prefer to host. Sex drive does change but most of the time it’s super high. Big fan of CNC, free use, and just being fucked in general. Oral is not my favorite (giving or receiving, tongues can just weird me out at times). Also pretty open to trying new things.
I’ve had luck in the past from this sub, but always have to delete my posts because the replies quickly become overwhelming, so here’s to hoping for something that sticks. I prefer snapchat over kik, and hopefully if you decide to respond you’ll try to provide a little bit about yourself and not the generic “hi, im also horny let’s bang.” but we’ll see.

2020.09.29 03:16 backpackerthrowaway1 It doesn't make any sense to me

I have received 3 job rejections today, in the middle of a date, who at the end also rejected me. I have been rejected from every job interview I've had since August 2019. I am watching my life savings evaporate in front of my eyes, as well as my major source of identity (career). The more I think about it, the more I wonder why I am even bothering? I am basically a mass of cells and DNA that justs exists because of randomization and because my parents decided they wanted to create a human. Now I am forced to live this life that I dont want to live where I am expected to work 40-60 hrs a week doing menial tasks to make someone else rich. I cant partake in the activities that feed my soul because you need money to do so and Ive been unemployed for 10 months. I dont want to live this life. I dont want kids. A partner is neither here nor there. Why should I feel guilty about ending an existence that I didn't even ask for just because other people will feel bad? I should feel unfulfilled my whole life just so others feel better? The more I think about it the more enraged I get. Anyways, rant over. Thank you for listening.

2020.09.29 03:07 needbfhelp704 My [F28] boyfriend [M29] keeps lying. What do I do?

Sorry in advance for the long post.
My boyfriend and I have been together for about two years, with a four month gap when we broke up last year. Long story short, soon after we first started initially dating, I found out that he had been lying to me about his sexual past (number of partners, details, still talking to exes/hookups, etc.). I know everyone's past is their past but it's something that's important to me, and I want to be with someone whose values and actions match my own.
He initially told me a low number of partners (10), but the longer we were together he would slip up and details about others would come out, including that he had actually slept with upwards of 40 women. He initially said that he lied because I wouldn't have wanted to be with him if I knew the truth. His excuses also ranged from telling me that he didn't remember, to outright gaslighting me. There was even a time that an old female "friend" of his sent him a sexually explicit text, and he kept outright denying that he had never slept with this woman. I found out almost a year later that he had indeed slept with her before we met, and didn't want me to know because she "didn't matter" to him so it wasn't important.
Throughout our first year dating, I would always catch him lying about his past and other things. When I confronted him, he would just say, "I lied because you've always responded poorly when I tell you about past partners. I didn't want you starting a fight over things that aren't important". That isn't true; I've responded angrily because of the lying, and he kept gaslighting me saying it's my fault that he lied. The lying finally culminated in a messy breakup at the end of last year.
After about four months apart, we decided to try again and began dating. One of the first questions we asked each other was if we had slept with anyone in between. We both said that we had not, which I admit was a lie on my part as I had slept with two people.
About two weeks after this talk, my boyfriend asked me to check something on his phone. I'm not proud of this, but I looked through his texts and found out that he had actually hooked up with a woman while we were apart. I confronted him with texts between him and the woman, and texts between him and friends confirming that he had slept with her. He responded by heavily gaslighting me, basically saying that all of those texts were jokes, and that he only wanted to sleep with her but didn't. I refused to accept this and after hours of more gaslighting, he finally admitted that he slept with her. His justification was the same, that if he told me the truth that I would leave. Basically again refusing to give me the agency to know the truth and make the decision for myself.
Over the next few months, I would bring up my intrusive thoughts about his hookup, as a lot of things didn't add up. Five months of continued lying and gaslighting later, he finally came clean about everything; including details about her, how many times they had sex, how many times they met up, etc.
He's also continued lying about things other than his past; money, things he said about me to friends, calling me abusive and controlling, etc. I even found out that he had shared a nude picture of mine with his friends while we were broken up, only for them to make fun of my body and genitals. I love my boyfriend and I've made mistakes too, but I feel deeply hurt and don't know what to do.

2020.09.29 02:56 BunzOutGunzOut2 I’m genuinely curious to what the point of life is... (and mostly) being gay is a curse.

I apologize in advance if this is a longer post.
I would generally say that I am not suicidal being that I am on medication currently and don’t think or joke about it like I used to. But I just have one question, what is the purpose of life? I know it’s something that everyone thinks about and no one knows the answer to. The reason I’m personally questioning it is that the way I look at it you’re born, you go to school, you work for atleast 40 years, you retire and by that time you’re old and you’re life is almost over, then you die. I would just really love to know the answer to the purpose of life.
I would say that my depression (and anxiety) is better after being on medication (Lexapro) but I still feel sadness?, confusion?, deep down inside. I don’t really know what it is...I do however, know the cause of it. I’m gay (25m). If I had the option to not be gay I would definitely take it. I’m still closeted and live at home. While I feel like most of my family and people I’d call my true friends would be cool with it, I just feel that if the world was more accepting and I was out, that my life would be 100% better...I’d have someone to love and that would love me and I’d finally be able to move out and just be myself...
Hell let’s be real, even if I was out I wouldn’t be able to find that true love that I dream about having. I just feel like I’m unloveable and not attractive enough for anyone. I’ve had a few meaningless hookups just to get the type of intimacy that I crave, but of-course after it’s over I’m back to being down in the dumps. When I have met someone that does somewhat think I’m attractive all they seem to want is a hookup. Everytime I think that a relationship is possibly in the works I get ghosted, rejected, or both of our situations don’t work out (to even have the possibility of dating).
Now I’m rambling, I just wanted to write out my feelings...
Basically all I want is someone to love me...it just doesn’t feel like that’ll ever happen. 💔
