2020.06.30 10:39 Jodyberg 21[F4M] Europe only

I'm feeling a bit embarrassed writing a post here, hence I'm using an alternative account so my friends don't find out about me.
I like being straight to the point, so I'll try to talk about topics that might be a deal breaker in a future relationship, so I don't make anyone waste time. I believe in the fact that a good relationship needs to be built with a good friendship first, so if we last good months as friends it's a good sign.
Facts about me:
- I'm currently a uni student and knowledge plays an important part in my life, so I would like my future partner to be career driven in order to understand each other better.
- I'm living in Europe.
- About sexuality: that doesn't play an important role at all in my life. I have a pretty low libido, and I won't do any of this until further in the relationship.
- Hobbies: I can adapt to lots of activities, except if they're dangerous or require extreme physical abilities (like running for more than 30 minutes 😂). I don't play games though, but that doesn't mean I'm not willing to learn.
-Body type: a mix between Zooey Deschanel and Jennifer Lopez body type, so I'm short.
- I want kids and a stable happy family in the near future, so obviously I need a responsible person who wants and likes kids.

During the day I'm busy dealing with my responsibilities so if I take time to answer is because I don't have my phone handy. I'm looking forward to read your message! Please describe yourself as much as you feel like sharing when writing me a message 😊

2020.05.25 03:19 D3ath_Stalks_Us_All 2 for 1 First Post Bonanza - Blue Valentine and 500 Days Of Summer

2 for 1 First Post Bonanza - Blue Valentine and 500 Days Of Summer
Two films which both deal with relationships and love...love? yuck...no wait don't run away just yet one of them has Ryan Gosling in it (and for everyone else still don't run away as it's a great film).
It's called Blue Valentine (2010) and stars Heath Ledger's wife, the brilliant Michelle Williams. The chemistry between the two stars is what drives (cough) this film but what makes it so original and often quite hard to watch is the raw way it puts you front and centre of their relationship. It's almost like you're intruding on moments too personal and the impact is you do genuinely see them as real flawed people and are invested in what happens to them. It also has a very loose almost improvised air to it which adds to the authenticity. A great film to watch with a partner...or not depending on how you look at it..
The second one is called 500 Days Of Summer (2009) and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zoey Deschanel. The tonal shifts and playing around with the concept of time give this film a really unique quality. It's not for everyone, especially if you prefer linear story telling, but what you gain with its unusual format is a hypnotic and strangely poignant film about the very nature of relationships. Quirky, funny, charming and fresh are just some of the cliches that have been thrown at Zoey Deschanel, but this was her first big break and in many ways the success of the film hinges on her being as quixotic as she is, or rather as she appears to be. A genuinely funny film which gets you thinking without you even realizing I'd put it way higher than the Oscar laden Blah Blah Land and its forced bonhommie.

EDIT: Don't worry this is not a love in

2020.03.05 16:49 DecentFig Bangs for outdoor ceremony?

Hoping to hear some advice, I'll try to keep this brief!
About two weeks ago I had a hair crisis and last-minute decided to go for bangs - think Zooey Deschanel. I'm thrilled with them and actually think they suit my face quite well.
However, mid-hair crisis I didn't really consider that my partner and I are getting married outdoors in Scotland in September. It will be just the two of us, and the bulk of our elopement budget went towards an incredible photographer. Now I'm worried that all of the photos will have me looking like a wet soggy rat if my bangs don't behave, it's raining or windy.
Is anyone with bangs able to chime in on what you did for an outdoor wedding? How did they hold up, or did you just pin them back so you didn't have to worry about it? I think my hair looks sooo much better with bangs, but I'm just really worried that being outdoors they will be all crazy, and we all know hair spray only goes so far.
Help!

2019.06.21 17:02 jaysjep2 Jeopardy! recap for Fri., Jun. 21 - Teen Tournament day five

Jeopardy! recap for Fri., Jun. 21 - Here are today's Teen Tournament contestants, who all would advance to the next round if they can accumulate scores of over $18,000:
Very competitive game in which Shriya scored on all three DDs and took a slim lead into FJ with $17,600 vs. $16,200 for Hannah and $14,200 for Avi.
DD1, (video) $1,000 - U.S. PRESIDENTS - The 400,000 men and women buried at Arlington include two U.S. Presidents -- John F. Kennedy and this man, who was also Chief Justice (Shriya won $1,600 from her score of $2,000.)
DD2, (video) $1,600 - AROUND EUROPE - At almost 10 miles, Samaria Gorge on this largest Greek island is the longest gorge in Europe (Shriya won $2,000 from her total of $7,200.)
DD3, $1,200 - ONLY HALF SHOWED UP - We planned on forescore guests, but only half showed up, so now this many have to eat all the food (Shriya won $2,000 from his score of $15,600.)
FJ - COMPOUND WORDS - This 8-letter word can follow nuclear to refer to a dangerous accident, or mean total loss of emotional control
Everyone was correct on FJ. Avi bet $11,399 to advance with $25,599, while both Shriya ($5,400 to improve to $23,000) and Hannah ($2,000 to finish at $18,200) picked up wild card spots.
Musical miscues: No one knew the 2016 no. 1 album "I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It" is by The 1975. Also, in the "Only Half Showed Up" category, the players didn't know that if Zooey Deschanel showed up without her musical partner, it would just be "She" (rather than She & Him).
One more thing: According to my closed captioning, when Shriya found DD3, Avi said "That's not fair". If he wants to see something truly unfair, I suggest he watch the episode with the "Gangster's Paradise" ruling.
Correct Qs: DD1 - Who was Taft? DD2 - What is Crete? DD3 - What is forty? FJ - What is meltdown?

2019.05.25 23:45 FesteringCumRagPile Night visions

In my dream I had a few days ago, I was in New York for an unknown reason, with my brother and my dad. I was walking down times square, when I happened upon a strange building that everyone called the house of the rising sun. It was made of shitty plywood, and the fact that it was still standing defied all logic. Anyways, at some point I had somehow picked up an unhatched baby chicken, that was in a placenta bag thingy instead of an egg. Sooooooooo I was walking up the staircase that was falling apart as I ascended the building. At the end of the staircase, there was a room with some guys playing pool. I asked what’s up, and they told me to enjoy the end of the world. This was when I remembered that thanos had snapped away 95% of the population for some reason. After that, the walls started to fold into each other, revealing a flo commercial. On the set, there was nathan barratt, who had his dick stuck in a fence, which I leaned down and helped to get unstuck. That’s when everyone noticed his MASSIVE RAGING BONER! He asked if I have ever had sex before, and I sheepishly told him that I’m a virgin. That’s when all the others on set started to cheer us on, forcing me to suck his FUCKING HUGE SLIMY VEINY PENIS, like a good little altar boy whore for millions to see on live television; because after all, it was the end of the world! I pulled off my skinny jeans and forced Nathan down onto his knees. I put my GIANT CUM COVERED FUCK MACHINE COCK into his wet mouth, and started to vigorously face fuck him like a jar of grape jelly. In seconds I came all over his beautiful face, causing an uproar of approval from the horny crowd of gay jack offs all around me. That’s when it happed. To my right I could hear the clickety clack from a sexy, hot, fuck toy of a woman’s high heals approaching me. I turn towards her, to be awarded with the sight of the beautiful Zooey Deschanel. She looks at me with the the absolute hottest of smiles, and asked if the thick juicy ropes of milky white semen that was covering barretts face, my THROBING COCK, and my entire lower body, dripping onto the floor in big wet steamy piles of delicious holy fuck nut, was cum. Instantly I told her in a jovial tone that it was precum! She stared at us adorably, contemplating if she wanted to cuck, fuck, or suck me. Realizing this, I casually ask her if she would like to hop in. All she does is stare into my soul. Frustrated, I force Nathan onto his thick juicy ass, laying him down onto his back like a submissive dog. I started to savagely fuck him in his ass, looking at his ripped abs, and suddenly came 5 times in his ass, on his chest, and all over the crowd. I look over at zooey, who look back in silent approval, with big, thick, globs of my nut dripping down off of her face, out of her pretty hair (that’s perfect for fucking) and onto the floor. With a drop of cum on her left eyebrow, and a pretty smile across her yummy face, she turned away and walked into the sunset. I loved to watch her ass move as she walked away. Her pure hotness made me cum even more, into my partners urethral orifice (which I had to managed to fit my male sexual organ into), causing his THICK, RUBBRY, PULSATING DICK to explode. I came again, but this time it was piss colored precum piles, which got me worried. Then I woke up, and found that I pissed my bed. Goddamn it! I just washed my sheets yesterday, and now I have to do it again. I need to stop drinking lemonade before bed! Btw even though we didn’t say no homo it was implied, which mean that I’m not gay; because after all it was the end of the world and I really wanted to stick my FLESHY DILDO DICK into zooey. Good day fellow bus riders!

The corn-Aquarius Cusp Discover the complexities of the Cusp of Mystery and Imagination
By Tarot.com Staff Aquarius, Astrology, Capricorn, Cusp If you were born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp, from January 17 to 23, you possess some seriously contrasting energies that make you incredibly unique! You were born on the Cusp of Mystery and Imagination, and you are a hardworking idealist. Capricorn and Aquarius are very different signs, yet this combination gives you the ability to view the world in a new and unparalleled way. Saturn, the planet of limits and lessons, is the ruling planet of Capricorn, encouraging you to take care of your real-world responsibilities and have a practical outlook on life. On the other hand, Uranus, Aquarius’ ruling planet, pushes you to think radically and open the minds of those around you. Together, these abilities can make you a powerfully brilliant, ambitious, and creative person.The elements that influence you create a complex contradiction as well. The Earth side of you (Capricorn) is stable and determined, while the Air half (Aquarius) craves variety and spontaneity. You have the added challenge of learning to feed both these sides of your personality, but if you can channel these energies correctly, you’ll be able to thrive in any situation.Born on the Cusp of Mystery and Imagination, you have a lot of excitement happening internally. Your mind is always churning out interesting thoughts and ideas, and you experience more breakthrough moments than others. However, the constant stream of fantasies and dreams flowing through your mind can sometimes make you seem detached or uninterested in the people and situations around you. You’re all about stimulating conversation, and you’re a wiz to talk to. You see the world as it is and love to discuss its problems and ways to fix it. While this makes you an intriguing conversationalist, it can be intimidating and isolating when it comes to catching up with your friends and family. You are full of wisdom and opinions about worldly issues, but when was the last time you asked your loved ones how they’re doing? It’s a noble thing to strive for the future, but don’t forget to take a break every now and then to check in on the world that’s right in front of you. Life will never be dull for those born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp. When you aren’t hard at work, your creative ideas and social connections fill your life with excitement and purpose. You’re capable of being a great leader and inspiring necessary change, if you’re willing to speak up. But remember, even the greatest ideas require support from those around you, so put extra effort into connecting with and appreciating the people in your life! Strengths: Determined, creative, entertaining, idealistic, witty, empathetic Born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp, you are blessed with the drive for success and the gift of creativity. Normally these two traits might clash, but for you these traits allow you to dream big and envision positive change. You can easily put yourself in others’ shoes and see the world from different perspectives. This also makes you a kind and generous friend -- when you take the time to listen. Weaknesses:Detached, chaotic, selfish, aloof, critical, judgmentalBecause you have your amazing imagination and creativity to keep you entertained, you may close yourself off in your own world and feel like you don’t need others to keep you company. You enjoy being alone with your thoughts, but this can make your loved ones feel unwanted -- which is a shame because they are your greatest supporters! Remember that teamwork makes the dream work and if you don’t put a little effort into your relationships every now and then, they may not be there anymore when you need the You enjoy your freedom, so you may find that committed and co-dependent relationships aren’t really your cup of tea. You thrive on your own, but you enjoy the support and friendship that a lover offers. It might take time until you’re ready to settle, but when you do, you’ll find that Fire signs keep things fun and light! They’ll dig your creative work ethic and can easily get behind your radical ideas. Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius can also make good partners for you. They’ll be able to keep up with your constant flow of conversation, and be understanding of your not-so-emotional personality.Advice: Pay attention! The inside of your own head may be entertaining, but it’s important to keep one foot in the real world. You don’t want to miss the important conversations and developments happening around you. Listen to others when they talk to you and don’t be judgmental if they’re not as quick or creative as you are. You’ll have sustainable, long lasting friendships if you’re willing to put in the work. Have fun in life and never let your sense of possibility and imagination fade!Celebrities: Betty White, Calvin Harris, Zooey Deschanel, Mariska Hargitay, Jim Carrey, arvey, Dolly Parton, Edgar Allen Po Report!

Rising Sign is in 06 Degrees Leo You love to be the center of attention and you want to appear strong, confident and dominant. You are very proud of yourself, sometimes quite vain even. When all around you are bedraggled and falling apart, you look like a million bucks! Very dignified and honorable, you enjoy the power and privilege, but not the responsibilities, that come with leadership. You are very idealistic but can also be quite stubborn. Others impress you only if they have integrity (but wealth, power and influence can also turn your head). You prefer rich, elegant surroundings and possessions, and will try to acquire them as your budget allows. Physically, you are very impressive - - at your best you have a regal, charismatic demeanor and bearing. Try not to be such a showoff!
Sun is in 26 Degrees Capricorn. Extremely serious and mature, you are capable of accepting responsibilities and do so willingly. Others expect you to be dutiful as a matter of course. You tend to get angry when people get rewards after not having worked anywhere near as hard as you. You are goal-oriented and an achiever by nature -- you're a hard worker and are justifiably proud of the tangible results of your efforts. You tend to have "tunnel-vision" -- this allows you to block out extraneous matters that might distract others and to concentrate totally on the matter at hand. As such, you are the ideal one to manage or administrate any ongoing project and to be practical and efficient at it. You are not a fast worker, but you are quite thorough. You are known for being totally persistent, tenacious and tireless in reaching your goals. Moon is in 06 Degrees Libra. Affectionate, warm and friendly, life must be a "beautiful" experience for you. Unpleasantness should be avoided at all costs. You tend to overlook other people's faults and you would rather give in than fight. You are uncomfortable with strangers, but at ease and sociable with friends and associates. Indeed, you would rather socialize than work -- you can use your prodigious charm to avoid unpleasant tasks. You need the support and assistance of another in order to get you started on any new project -- you are not a self-starter. Be careful of a tendency to be overly self-indulgent (i.e., lazy). Your refined aesthetic sensibilities attract you to music, dance, art and any other cultured activity. Mercury is in 10 Degrees Capricorn. You are a careful thinker, very cautious and conservative. You are quite skillful at organizing, directing and planning activities. Practical and useful things interest you -- you are not attracted to abstract thoughts or ideas. With your tendency to be highly focused and very goal-oriented, you have a good head for business. But beware of a tendency to be narrow-minded and dogmatic. Your sense of humor tends toward being earthy and slapstick crude. Venus is in 29 Degrees Capricorn. You tend to keep your feelings under control -- emotions are only released in serious or important situations. You are distrustful of others whose behavior could be judged excessive or immoderate. As such, you prefer to relate only to those who are older than you or to those whose position is such that respect and duty are more important for both of you than passion or emotional response. Be careful, however, of relationships that are merely based on practicality or utility or you will ultimately be lonely. Mars is in 21 Degrees Sagittarius. Your every action is motivated by high moral standards and ideals. You will work very hard to improve the lot of the world at large, but you demand action about it -- you do not like to just sit around and talk about doing it in an abstract manner. You like to be where the real action is. You resist mightily any attempts to limit your freedom and you will assist anyone who feels put down and restricted. You are extremely restless by nature -- physical exercise is very important to you if you would maintain your health. Jupiter is in 03 Degrees Cancer. You must be emotionally secure in order to grow and develop. You are happiest when your family and community support and nourish you and boost your morale. Whether your childhood experiences of love and emotional dependability were positive or negative will set the tone for your emotional growth and stability as an adult. When you feel at ease with yourself, you are able to offer assistance to those who need a helping hand. Saturn is in 17 Degrees Capricorn. Very serious-minded and mature, you have the ability to take on responsibilities and to carry out important duties. You can also be trusted to be extremely practical and thrifty. A good organizer, you are the ideal one to be counted on to take a clearly defined project through to its logical conclusion. An achiever, you pride yourself on your ability to focus your attention totally on some worthy goal and then attain it. Uranus is in 06 Degrees Capricorn. You, and your peer group as well, seek out practical solutions to a changing society's attitudes to customs, traditions and authority structures. Your logical and orderly manner of dealing with these matters will result in permanent and carefully planned, but sweeping, reforms. Neptune is in 12 Degrees Capricorn. You, and your entire generation, will idealize work, practicality and the ability to attain reasonable goals. But, because you will also stress the need to be selfless and giving, you may find it difficult to attain your goals unless you have lowered your expectations on all fronts. Pluto is in 17 Degrees Scorpio. For your entire generation, this is a period of intense research and discovery in areas that were heretofore considered

2019.03.27 05:56 How_To_Badass Advice from The Other Side (Asked A Woman)

Every time you leave the house, there is infinite potential for meeting girls. Even if they aren’t bangable, you can make female friends who will introduce you to hot bitties. Wearing headphones makes you pretty unapproachable and less likely to chat up the cute girl on the bus. Stare out the window and observe stranger’s conversations. Be comfortable in the presence of others without having to rely on candy crush to keep you company. Nothing is sexier than someone who is completely at ease with themselves.
Buy yourself some cologne and wear it every time you leave the house. I melt if a guy smells good, it lifts your attractiveness exponentially. Your game can be terrible yet we will still want to fuck your brains out if you smell amazing. When you are going shopping for cologne, wear your normal deodorant as you want to ensure it doesn’t clash. Nothing conjures up memories more than smell, so by wearing the same scent every day you are infiltrating her subconscious mind.
Nope, your mother doesn’t count. I mean sometime during your adult life consider living with a lady/ladies. Whether it is a flatmate, a girlfriend or a sister, this will HUGELY improve your game. Especially if you have a habit of putting girls on a pedestal or get easily intimidated by hot girls. You’ll gain insight into how girls think and live. Yes, girls look terrible when they wake up after a big night drinking. They also take big, smelly shits. Sorry to burst your bubble. They will also invite female friends over, increasing your social network and therefore chances of getting laid.
Do you like athletic, toned girls? Join the gym and a local sports team, start getting ripped (NOTE: you do NOT have to be ripped to get girls as we are attracted to a variety of body types, see dot point later)
Into hipster girls? Grow that moustache, dress like Zooey Deschanel’s boyfriend and frequent bars that indie girls go to.
Or maybe sophisticated, career oriented ladies butter your muffin. Suit up, knuckle down and climb that career ladder. Are you a guy still in high school? You will be able to cast a very wide net and be extremely desirable if you work to become a doctor, lawyer, firefighter etc.
Getting hammered on tequila shots can be awesome fun. Trust me, I’m a bartender. But make sure that you are slightly LESS drunk than your female companion (prey?). Carrying a guy out of a bar is not so fun.
A great physique not only is visually attractive, it shows consistent commitment and dedication- attributes HIGHLY valued in potential partners. I’m athletic so am attracted to sporty dudes, but also love guys that are a little bit chubby. Instead of focusing your energy on exercising for appearance, use it to improve your inner game. Do it because it releases endorphins and makes you feel like a fucking king. Get outside in the sunshine and soak up some vitamin D. You will be and look healthier, and increase your chances of a girl soaking up your D …see what I did there ;) ?
Ladies generally put a lot of time into maintaining their appearance. Please do us the favour by keeping clean down there. No-one likes sweaty ball sack aroma, and mufasa pubes are not appreciated.
Controversial, I know. This is a personal opinion but one that is shared with a majority of girls that I have discussed this with. Especially with guys from their teens to their late 20s, previous relationship history is a much better indicator than dick size of how good they are in bed. The theory behind this is that someone who has been in a relationship has had to put effort into finding out a partners turn ons, and knows what makes sex satisfying for both parties. It isn’t the how many chicks you’ve banged, so stop worrying about your number. Guys that have only have one night stands are often a dud root. If you’ve had a previous relationship, it also instills hope that we could be the girl to change your bad boy ways.
If having a girlfriend is not your thing, put some time into learning what makes a girl feel really good. Get a regular fuck buddy and have SOBER sex. Get good at oral. Know what positions work with your penis size (for example, well endowed guys can cause discomfort hitting the cervix when they pump away at a girl doggy style. Smaller penises can do well at different angles, especially positions where they thrust from behind).
Please approach us. Especially during the day, this is much more flattering than when you’re hammered in a club. Even if you don’t get a number close, it gives the girl a story to tell her friends later and gives you the real life experience that is needed. This goes even more for the really gorgeous ones. Super hot chicks may intimidate guys, so you actually may have a shot with that HB. Often the only ones that approach are over-confident, alpha schmucks- this may not be the personality type that that particular HB10 is attracted to.
**So there you go, hope some of this helps. **
I’ve been lurking here for a while and wanted to share some pointers. I’m female, early 20s and work part time at a bar in addition to studying. As the title suggests, I have had a huge variety of relationships from boyfriends to fun hookups and FWBs.
These tips are pretty general, but if there is interest I will chat with some hot ladies and hustle for more specific advice.
TL DR: Too lazy to read? Too lazy to get a root

2019.01.31 04:51 FormerThiccie I [M 23] can't seem to get over what happened with my date [22 F]

Hey, all,

I'm not one to share personal problems, but I feel, at least in this instance, that I need to. I'm hoping you guys'll be able to provide me with a bit of perspective on this. My apologies for the length.
In April of last year, I went on a date with a girl in whom I had seemingly found it all. She was stunning, sweet, intelligent, quirky (as I would later find out, too much so) -- the perfect girl, really. If I had to compare her to a relevant celebrity, I'd say she looked like Zooey Deschanel. We started talking on Bumble, and after about four days, it seemed we were both interested in meeting up. So I invited her out to a bar my friends and I were already planning on visiting. She agreed to join in on our plans.
The night of, she waited for me outside of the bar. I don't mean to sound silly, but she was so beautiful it almost hurt. She asked me if I'd rather go for dinner and drinks so we could talk, and I happily obliged. The first few hours couldn't have gone any better. We bonded over all manner of things. I made her smile; she made me smile -- all that sappy shit. When it came time to rendezvous with my friends, I was almost hoping they'd have already left.
So we hit up the bar again, and, to my delight, my friends were already gone. So my date and I wandered around the downtown core, eyeing funky clubs, checking out people's unusual outfits. Around 1:00 am, I had to relieve myself, but neither one of us wanted to pay another exorbitant bar cover just so I could go take a piss. So she invited me back to her place.
When we got to her apartment, her roommates were still up. It was immediately evident they didn't want me there, so I suggested we go wander around for a little while in her neighbourhood. She thought it was a great plan. She grabbed a bottle of whiskey from her room, and we kept the party going. At this point, I had had, say, six drinks. I wasn't certain how many she had had, but she seemed fully in control.
We found a park to sit and chat in. She whipped a joint out from her pocket, which came as a bit of a surprise, but I didn't mind all that much. I stuck to the liquor while she smoked. We continued to bond, to the point where we ended up holding hands, getting in close, etc. I had recently grown so used to one-night stands and quick trysts that this harmless intimacy came as a pleasant surprise. If we had stopped our date there, I would have gone home the happiest man in town. But we didn't.
Around 2:30 am, I asked her if I could walk her home. I didn't want to just hop on the bus when it came 'round, 'cause I thought it would nice to have one last moment before our night together ended. But when the subject of dropping her off at her place came up, her tone immediately changed. She said she didn't want to go back there, that she hated it there. I told her that I would be more than happy to meet up with her again the following day if she needed to get away from her roommates, but before I could get all that through to her, she took the bottle of whiskey and drank the remainder of it.
I knew she'd be absolutely hammered in a matter of minutes, so I tried my best to coax her address out of her so I could drop her off and let her roommates know what had happened. But she wouldn't give it to me. Instead, she got up and ran out toward the nearest street. I had to sprint to catch up to her, and when I did, I tried my best to calm her down. Just when I thought she had settled down, she again ran out on to the road, but this time, she fell upon making it to the other side. Her face was busted up; her knees were all sorts of gnarled. I ended up having to get the police involved, because it looked as if she had seriously injured herself.
When I propped her up, and as I was trying to give the operator our location, she told me to kill myself. She told me she felt absolutely nothing for me, that she had lied to me all night, that I should give up on my dreams. Then, she started talking about killing herself. She took swings at me, which I had to avoid while talking to the woman on the other end.
When I took my eyes off her, she ran out into the street again and fell a second time. She screamed as soon as I got close. The cops finally showed up, and I had to give the officers a run-down of everything that had happened. Meanwhile, she was trying to fight the paramedics. At one point, she even accused me of drugging her, of beating her up. I was almost too numb to register it all. The last glimpse I got of her was when she was being loaded onto a stretcher. I got home at 5:00 am that morning.
Here's the thing -- I still think about her. I'm currently in a relationship with a very sensible, caring woman, but I simply cannot get that night out of my head. I sometimes find myself wondering what could have been. It takes a lot for me to care about my partners, usually -- but I fell for this one in a matter of hours. There's no way for me to contact her now (I deleted her off of everything right after the whole affair), yet I want to. I need closure, but I can't get it. I'd like to know if she healed well, if she regretted any of her actions. Part of me still longs for her in some perverse sense.

How do I move on?

tl;dr: Went on a date with the girl of my dreams, only to have her turn on me after having too much to drink. Had to get the cops involved. Can't seem to get over her.

2018.12.05 23:57 rotoreuters To A Nation Of Snowflakes, Christmas Has Become Another Trigger Word

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,
“This Christmas season finds us a rather bewildered human race. We have neither peace within nor peace without. Everywhere paralyzing fears harrow people by day and haunt them by night. Our world is sick with war; everywhere we turn we see its ominous possibilities. And yet, my friends, the Christmas hope for peace and goodwill toward all men can no longer be dismissed as a kind of pious dream of some utopian. If we don’t have goodwill toward men in this world, we will destroy ourselves by the misuse of our own instruments and our own power.”— Martin Luther King, Jr., “A Christmas Sermon on Peace”
To a nation of snowflakes, Christmas has become yet another trigger word.
The latest Christmas casualties in the campaign to create one large national safe space are none other than the beloved animated classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (denounced for promoting bullying and homophobia) which first aired on television on December 6, 1964, and the Oscar-winning tune “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (accused of being a date rape anthem) crooned by everyone from Dean Martin to Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel in the movie Elf.
Also on the endangered species Christmas list are such songs as “Deck the Halls” (it supposedly promotes “gay” apparel), “Santa Baby” (it has been denounced for “slut shaming”), and “White Christmas” (perceived as being racist).
One publishing company even re-issued their own redacted version of Clement Clarke Moore’s famous poem “Twas the night before Christmas” in order to be more health conscious: the company edited out Moore’s mention of Santa smoking a pipe (“The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, / And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath.”)
Oh the horror.

_After a year plagued with its fair share of Scrooges and Grinches and endless months of being mired in political gloom and doom, we could all use a little Christmas cheer right now._Unfortunately, the politically charged Right and Left have been trying to score points off each other for so long, using whatever means available, that even Christmas has been weaponized.
Yet just because the War on Christmas has been adopted as a war cry by Donald Trump doesn’t mean that it’s not real.
Look around you.
When I was a child in the 1950s, the magic of Christmas was promoted in the schools. We sang Christmas carols in the classroom. There were cutouts of the Nativity scene on the bulletin board, along with the smiling, chubby face of Santa and Rudolph. We were all acutely aware that Christmas was magic.
Fast forward to the present day, and there is a phobia surrounding Christmas that has turned it into fodder for the politically correct culture wars.
Indeed, in its “Constitutional Q&A: Twelve Rules of Christmas,” The Rutherford Institute points out that some communities, government agencies and businesses have gone to great lengths to avoid causing offense over Christmas.
Examples abound.
Schools across the country now avoid anything that alludes to the true meaning of Christmas such as angels, the baby Jesus, stables and shepherds.
In many of the nation's schools, Christmas carols, Christmas trees, wreaths and candy canes have also been banned as part of the effort to avoid any reference to Christmas, Christ or God. One school even outlawed the colors red and green, saying they were Christmas colors and, thus, illegal.
Students asked to send seasonal cards to military troops have been told to make them “holiday cards” and instructed not to use the words “Merry Christmas” on their cards.
Many schools have redubbed their Christmas concerts as “winter holiday programs” and refer to Christmas as a “winter festival.” Some schools have cancelled holiday celebrations altogether to avoid offending those who do not celebrate the various holidays.
In Minnesota, a charter school banned the display of a poster prepared to promote the school’s yearbook as a holiday gift because the poster included Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and other secular Christmas icons, not to mention the word “Christmas.”
In New Jersey, one school district banned traditional Christmas songs such as “Joy to the World” and “Silent Night” from its holiday concerts. A New Jersey middle school cancelled a field trip to attend a performance of a play based on Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol" because some might have found it "offensive."
In Texas, a teacher who decorated her door with a scene from “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” including a scrawny tree and Linus, was forced to take it down lest students be offended or feel uncomfortable.
In Connecticut, teachers were instructed to change the wording of the classic poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas” to “Twas the Night Before a Holiday.”
In Virginia, a high school principal debated about whether he could mention Santa or distribute candy canes given that they were symbols of Christmas.
In Massachusetts, a fourth-grade class was asked to list 25 things that reminded them of Christmas. When one young student asked if she could include “Jesus,” her teacher replied that she could get fired if Christmas’ namesake appeared on the list.
Things are not much better outside the schools.
In one West Virginia town, although the manger scene (one of 350 light exhibits in the town's annual Festival of Lights) included shepherds, camels and a guiding star, the main attractions—Jesus, Mary and Joseph—were nowhere to be found due to concerns about the separation of church and state.
In Chicago, organizers of a German Christkindlmarket were informed that the public Christmas festival was no place for the Christmas story. Officials were concerned that clips of the film “The Nativity Story,” which were to be played at the festival, might cause offense.
In Delaware, a Girl Scout troop was prohibited from carrying signs reading “Merry Christmas” in their town’s annual holiday parade.
_While the First Amendment Establishment Clause prohibits the government from forcing religion on people or endorsing one particular religion over another, there is no legitimate legal reason why people should not be able to celebrate the season freely or wish each other a Merry Christmas or even mention the word Christmas._The Rutherford Institute’s “Twelve Rules of Christmas” guidelines are helpful in dealing with folks who subscribe to the misguided notion that the law requires anything Christmas in nature be banned from public places.
Yet here’s the thing about this so-called War on Christmas that people don’t seem to get: while Christmas may be the “trigger” for purging Christmas from public places, government forums and speech - except when it profits Corporate America - it is part and parcel of the greater trend in recent years to whittle away at free speech and trample the First Amendment underfoot.

Claiming to promote tolerance and diversity while seeking a homogeneous mindset, many workplaces, schools and public places have become intolerant of any but the most politically correct viewpoints.
Anything that might raise the specter of controversy is avoided at all costs.
We are witnessing the emergence of an unstated yet court-sanctioned right, one that makes no appearance in the Constitution and yet seems to trump the First Amendment at every turn: the right to not be offended.
In this way, emboldened by phrases such as “hate crimes,” “bullying,” “extremism” and “microaggressions,” free speech has been confined to carefully constructed “free speech zones,” criminalized when it skates too close to challenging the status quo, shamed when it butts up against politically correct ideals, and muzzled when it appears dangerous.
This is censorship, driven by a politically correct need to pander to those who are easily offended.
Where you see this “safe space” mindset really play out is in the nation’s public schools, which continue to adopt policies—such as zero tolerance policies—that promise to steer young people clear of anything that even hints at danger, controversy or non-politically correct thinking.
Unfortunately, all too often it is common sense and individual liberty that get trampled underfoot: a student gets suspended under the school's zero tolerance policy against drugs for chewing on a Certs breath mint; a kindergartner is suspended under the school's zero tolerance policy against violence for playing a make-believe game of cops and robbers using his finger as a gun; and a school trip to see "A Christmas Carol" is cancelled because of the school's zero tolerance policy against anything that is in any way offensive.
What's worse, the motto today seems to be “When in doubt, throw it out.”
At the slightest hint of trouble, government officials (and corporations) are inclined to chuck anything that might be objectionable. So whereas Mark Twain's classic "Huckleberry Finn" used to at least make the list of banned books every year, it now rarely even makes an appearance on school reading lists. It has been scrubbed out of existence.
See how that works?
Zero tolerance policies are ultimately about programming people into compliance with the government’s dictates.
The government doesn’t care about Christmas. It cares about control.
By government, I’m talking about the entrenched government bureaucracy that really calls the shots no matter what political party controls Congress and the White House.
Never forget, the police state wants us to be a nation of snowflakes, snitches and book burners: a legalistic, intolerant, elitist, squealing bystander nation willing to turn on each other and turn each other in for the slightest offense.
All of the petty sniping over Melania Trump’s red-themed Christmas decorations?
That plays perfectly into the Deep State’s efforts to keep the citizenry at odds with each other and incapable of presenting a united front against the threats posed by the government and its cabal of Constitution-destroying agencies and corporate partners.
You want to know why this country is in the state it’s in?
As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, _the answer is the same no matter what the problem might be, whether it’s the economy, government corruption, police brutality, endless wars, censorship, falling literacy rates, etc.: every one of these problems can be sourced back to the fact that “we the people” have stopped thinking for ourselves and relinquished responsibility for our lives and well-being to a government entity that sees us only as useful idiots._The Greek philosopher Socrates believed in teaching people to think for themselves and in the free exchange of ideas. For his efforts, he was accused of corrupting the youth and was put to death. However, his legacy lived on in the Socratic method of teaching: posing questions that help young and old discover the answers by learning to think for themselves.
Now even the Socratic method is in danger of extinction.
As Rod Serling, creator of the classic sci-fi series Twilight Zone _and one of the most insightful commentators on human nature, once observed, _“We’re developing a new citizenry. One that will be very selective about cereals and automobiles, but won’t be able to think.”
We face an immense threat in our society from this drive to obliterate our history and traditions in order to erect a saccharine view of reality. In the process, we are creating a schizophrenic world for our children to grow up in, and it is neither healthy nor will it produce the kind of people who will be able to face the challenges of a future ruled by a totalitarian regime.
You can’t sanitize reality. You can’t scrub out of existence every unpleasant thought or idea. You can’t legislate tolerance. You can’t create enough safe spaces to avoid the ugliness that lurks in the hearts of men and women. You can’t fight ignorance with the weapons of a police state.
What you can do, however, is step up your game.
Opt for kindness over curtness, and civility over censorship. Choose peace over politics, and freedom over fascism. Find common ground with those whose politics or opinions or lifestyles may not jive with your own.
Do your part to make the world a little brighter and a little lighter, and maybe, just maybe, we’ll have a chance of digging our way out of this hole.

2018.05.18 22:13 AgroTechFarmICO 'The Farm Project': Actress Zooey Deschanel's advice on organic food, pesticides is short on science

The actress and singer Zooey Deschanel has a message for Americans too poor to buy organic food: Stop eating apples, avoid fresh tomatoes, and give up on grapes, peppers, potatoes, and other items that appear among the so-called “Dirty Dozen,” a list of fruits and vegetables that, when farmed and harvested using standard industrial methods, tend to carry more pesticide residues.
https://preview.redd.it/pf978koa9oy01.jpg?width=1024&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d32f231ee457acad5f54a47a2c12f9ec4cfdae5a
“If you can’t afford to buy organic, avoid the dirty dozen and look for produce with lower pesticide levels, like asparagus, cauliflower, or mangoes,” Deschanel advises viewers of her new, viral Facebook video series, Your Food’s Roots.
The problem: While this appears to be a piece of safety advice, it’s hard to find any scientific support to back it up. And it’s not the only questionable claim that Deschanel shares in the series, which debuted two months ago on Facebook and quickly attracted millions of viewers. The videos do touch on serious issues, but they also illustrate how sloppy science, celebrity culture, and social media virality too often converge to generate market-driven fear-mongering and baseless health claims, rather than serious consumer education.
It’s not entirely surprising to see Deschanel — a mid-2000s hipster icon perhaps best known for her role in the Fox sitcom “New Girl” — suddenly talking about food mileage and azodicarbonamide. As many celebrities have discovered, the combination of wellness culture, ethical consumerism, and Hollywood glamor can make for a potent — and profitable — media cocktail. Pioneers of the model include Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, a health and lifestyle brand, Jessica Alba’s Honest Company, and even Tom Brady’s TB12.
These startups have attracted big followings. But scientific rigor sometimes gets lost along the way. Goop, in particular, has repeatedly come under fire for its pseudoscientific claims and products — including “bio-frequency healing” stickers, and perhaps most famously, jade eggs designed to be inserted into the vagina to coax “spiritual detox.” Alba’s outfit was sued last year by consumers after The Wall Street Journal reported that a detergent the Honest Company was marketing as a safer and more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional soaps actually contained a harsh chemical it had pledged to avoid. (Alba’s team settled the suit last June, while denying any wrongdoing.)
Deschanel’s videos are a collaboration between the millennial news-and-issues advocacy site ATTN: (pronounced “attention”) and The Farm Project, a new startup founded by Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, that “empowers initiatives that reconnect people with food.” In the videos, Deschanel talks about everything from overfishing to the evils of factory-produced bread. The most popular video in the series, alleging negligent FDA oversight of chemical additives, racked up more than 17 million views in its first month on Facebook. ATTN: paid the series’ production costs.
The videos give lucid overviews of some complex topics, such as the FDA’s controversial “Generally Recognized as Safe” designation for food chemicals. Often, though, the videos seem to favor fear over nuance. A brief bit about the preservative sodium nitrite, which Deschanel jokingly calls “science salt,” implies that the compound is an artificial concoction (it’s a naturally occurring chemical and a metabolic byproduct of digesting many common vegetables) and that it causes cancer in humans (the evidence is mixed).
More concerning is the organics episode in which Deschanel — a millionaire Hollywood star — urges poor Americans to avoid many common fruits and vegetables if they cannot afford to buy organic. Deschanel warns that these are fruits and vegetables that “you should strictly buy organic, due to the amount of pesticides on them.”
There are, of course, real reasons to be concerned about pesticide use, including the effect of chemicals on the environment and on the farmworkers who come into contact with high concentrations of toxic compounds.
But to date, there is little clear scientific support for the argument that organic produce is, by definition, healthier for consumers than conventional produce, or that conventional produce is actively dangerous because of pesticides. The Environmental Protection Agency sets stringent legal thresholds for pesticide residues on produce, pegged far below levels known to be toxic to people. And organic produce can still contain pesticide residues too — both from nearby conventional fields and from powerful but naturally-derived chemicals that can legally be used on organic crops. (Some synthetic pesticides are also approved for use in organic farming.)
Much more worrying than the prospect of pesticide residues, many experts say, is the prospect of driving consumers away from including fruits and vegetables in their diets altogether. “My work over the last 30 years has consistently suggested that the health risks are negligible for the consumption of conventional produce, and the biggest concern is making sure people eat fruits and vegetables,” said Carl Winter, a specialist in the Cooperative Extension at the University of California-Davis who has published extensively on pesticide residues, including an analysis of the Dirty Dozen. “If public concerns over pesticides — tiny, tiny levels of pesticides in the diet — make them more wary, the tendency can be to decrease their consumption of fruits and vegetables.”
Even the Environmental Working Group, the toxins-focused consumer advocacy organization that publishes the Dirty Dozen list Deschanel cites, emphasizes that “the health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure. Eating conventionally grown produce is far better than skipping fruits and vegetables.”
Chloe Sacks, a marketing manager at ATTN:, rejected the suggestion that Deschanel was offering health or nutritional advice when she urged consumers to avoid many common fruits and vegetables. “When referencing the dirty dozen, we’re talking about a list of fruits and vegetables that people who strive for an all-natural diet should avoid if they cannot afford to purchase organic produce, since those are the ones found to have the highest level of synthetic pesticides,” Sacks wrote in an email to Undark. “We’re not talking about health risks.”
Policy experts had mixed reactions to the series. I showed the video on the FDA and food regulation to Thomas Neltner, chemicals policy director at the Environmental Defense Fund. “It’s pretty good!” Neltner said after watching the video. “I don’t think people realize how dependent they are on the integrity of the companies that are selling them their food.”
On the other hand, Timothy Caulfield, a health policy scholar at the University of Alberta and the author of a book about Gwyneth Paltrow and celebrity health advice, was concerned about the series’ tone. “I think there’s a little bit of fear-mongering going on,” Caulfield told Undark. The problem with advice like Deschanel’s, he said, is that it “makes it more difficult to take those simple, evidence-based steps towards a healthy lifestyle. It makes it more complicated. It makes it more expensive. And if something is more complicated, if something is more expensive, it’s less likely that healthy behavior is going to be sustained.
“There’s some stuff in these videos, that are very nicely produced, that is kind of true, right?” Caulfield added. “But there’s always this underlying — this blanket of pseudoscience that permeates the entire show.”
For Deschanel, this may only be the beginning. On its website and Facebook page, The Farm Project speaks only in vague terms about its mission and work. The project does not list any staff or contact information on its website, and it would be easy to mistake the startup, with its mission-driven language and world-changing tone, for a nonprofit. The company also did not respond to messages sent to its Facebook page requesting comment on its vision, and Deschanel did not respond to a list of questions sent through her publicist.
But details posted on the startup hiring website AngelList suggest larger — and more corporate — ambitions, describing The Farm Project as “a public benefit corporation that is leveraging media and technology to drive a meaningful shift to sustainably produced food.” The company aims to provide sustainable farmers with “information, technology, and access to financial resources that they need to meet the challenges of managing a modern sustainable farm,” and it’s trying to hire a team of web developers and product managers.
On AngelList, The Farm Project’s founder is listed as Gregory Campbell, a longtime business partner of Pechenik. The two men are MIT graduates — Pechenik got a degree in chemical engineering — and they already collaborate on a business venture called YellowJacket, which provides software to derivatives traders on Wall Street. They now appear to be teaming up with Deschanel to market a vision of a more sustainable, local future — one that’s premised on a deep skepticism of corporations, if not on hard science.

2017.08.17 02:17 Socialist7 Abortion

It wasn’t the typical boy meets girl scenario.
She was my friend. My lesbian friend. A pretty, lipstick lesbian, she looked like Zooey Deschanel.
Sophie had been with her partner Claire over a year when she asked if I’d help her become a mother. We were sitting in a downtown coffee shop. I almost spat out my cappuccino when she asked me.
At first I was shocked, flattered but shocked.
She explained the process, made it sound so easy.
All I had to do was….empty myself, into a plastic specimen cup, then leave it with her and her partner. Her partner would then help her use a syringe (turkey baster in the more common parlance) to inject the sperm into her uterus.
I didn’t have to think for very long. I’d always wanted to be a father, but, being gay myself, I never thought I’d have the chance outside of adoption. I agreed and we all left the coffee shop smiling and excited for the future.
We all waited eagerly for Sophie’s ovulation date. On the day, I visited their apartment and, after some initial awkwardness, left my manly essence in a specimen cup and hugged Sophie and Claire goodbye.
Two weeks later Sophie took a pregnancy test. We deliberately avoided getting our hopes up. Some of our friends had taken months, sometimes years of trying before they got pregnant. This was only our first attempt.
Incredibly, there they were, two strong, blue lines. She was pregnant!
The feeling was indescribable. A baby was growing inside my friend, and the baby was mine. We had made it just like that!
The next few weeks were a dizzy rush. Midwife visits for Sophie, buying baby clothes, telling friends and family. People say ‘don’t announce it until after the first scan’ but Sophie was too excited to keep it in. I even bragged to my straight buddies how I got a girl pregnant… “through a Turkey baster” they pointed out!
“All my dreams have come true!” Sophie tweeted.
Then, one day, Sophie and Claire broke up.
I was the first person Sophie rang. (Her family had cut ties with her after she came out.) Through sobs she told me the story.
It was all very sudden. Claire said the thought of a baby was too much. She had never really wanted a baby in their life, and only went along with it because Sophie wanted it so much. Claire packed all her clothes and makeup into a suitcase and left. And just like that, Sophie was left all alone at 10 weeks pregnant.
Filled with sympathy and a kind of paternal affection I offered to help her raise it. We could co-parent. It didn’t matter that I lived 15 miles away. We’d make it work somehow. She thanked me for the kind offer but said she knew what had to be done.
When she said the word, I felt like my heart had turned to wax.
Abortion.
She had already booked a doctors appointment, she just wanted to let me know before she went through with it.
My head still spinning, I told her I respected her decision and would support her whatever she did. I told her I would always be there if she needed me. She thanked me and we said goodbye.
Two weeks later she had the procedure at the city hospital. I offered to drive her but she said she’d be fine.
She rang me after work as I was walking across the car park.
With a voice that was hoarse from crying she told me about they put her to sleep, which she was grateful for so she didn’t have to look at anything gory. She was in a lot of pain but they had given her loads of pills. We lamented the circumstances, muttered some platitudes about everything happens for a reason and said goodbye.
I decided I would forget all about it, cast the ghastly affair from my thoughts and think of other things. I thought about work instead, I was applying for a promotion and needed all my mental energy for that.
I thought about it a lot over the next few days. The days turned into weeks and I began to think about it less. I didn’t meet up with Sophie at all. I didn’t want to.
I got the promotion at my work. I was elated. I went for pizza with my colleagues after work. I took some home with me and when I got hungry again around 7pm, I ate it in front of the TV. I live alone so eating pizza from the box on the couch is no big deal.
I fell asleep on the couch and a loud cry woke me up. I looked at the clock, it was 2am. I’m a fairly light sleeper so I was surprised I napped so long. The TV was off. Which was strange because it was on when I fell asleep.
The cry was high pitched and shrill, it sounded like a baby’s cry and it was coming from outside. I went to my front window and looked outside. Neither of my neighbours have children so I thought it must be a passing pedestrian walking with a baby. Why was anyone walking with a child at 2am?
I looked out into the street, the usual cars were there, mine and my neighbours, there were a few trees, but no sign of people, especially not a baby. Yet the baby’s cry rang out again. High pitched, loud and pleading.
I opened the front door and stepped outside. “Hello!” I called out.
“Is anyone there?”
Silence greeted me, the baby had stopped crying, not even a bird or the sound of distant cars to break the still of the night air. Then, I reasoned, it must be the neighbours TV! So I walked a little way out into the street and peaked toward the left neighbour’s house. There were no lights on at all, no blue glow suggesting the light of a television. I walked in the other direction toward my right side neighbour. The same, not one light in their windows. It seemed like they were all in bed. Most people are at 2am. Apart from me. Just as I was about to head back inside, the baby’s cry started again, this time much louder.
It felt very close.
I spun around on my heel and looked around the street. Nothing, not a soul. Yet the crying seemed to be coming from close by.
At first I thought, perhaps someone had left a child in a car! In this summer weather too! I rushed towards the sound. I peaked into some cars but no sign of a child or even a child seat. Yet as I followed the sound it seemed to lead me away from the cars, towards a grassy area near the end of the street. The crying got louder and louder. I reached the point where it was loudest. The sound seemed to be coming from below me. There was nothing there, only a storm drain. I knelt down next to the drain and the crying became distinctly louder.
A chill went through me as I realised, the sound was coming from inside the drain! I looked inside but couldn’t see anything. Yet the crying continued, louder and more frantic now.
I sprinted back to my house and fetched a flashlight. I shone it into the drain but saw nothing.
I pulled out my phone and dialled the police. As soon as the operator answered the crying stopped. Nonetheless I told them I could hear a child crying in a drain.
Within minutes two police cars and an ambulance arrived. As I waited the crying sound did not start again. Nor did it start when they arrived. Nothing but silence emerged from the drain as the officers shone their torches deep down into the darkness. They took a statement from me and seemed ready to leave.
“Aren’t you going to get the fire brigade to cut the drain open and have a look?” I pleaded with them.
The two officers just looked at each other, meanwhile the ambulance driver leaned against his ambulance while texting on his phone. I couldn’t believe the lack of urgency on their part.
“Well Sir, we don’t have any missing children reports, and there doesn’t seem to be any sign of a human being in there, but keep an eye out and if you do see anything suspicious give us a call. Thank you for your vigilance.”
And with that, they left.
I went back into my house. I couldn’t believe how laissez-faire the authorities were about the whole thing. There was a baby crying in that drain, and they didn’t give a damn.
That was two nights ago, I haven’t heard the crying since, but I’ve been past every night with my flashlight, shining it into the drain checking.
I saw a baby carriage abandoned by the side of the road yesterday. I slammed on the breaks and pulled over to check nothing was in it. There wasn’t.

2017.07.30 19:49 unclefishbits I made a simple, updated, alphabetical list of all the guest stars, cameos, etc.

Feel free to add any, subtract, correct, add names of characters, etc. I was looking for one to explain to my friends how wild this show is, but there wasn't one. So thanks to Sunday morning, I did it. Not sure alphabetical is best, but whatever:

2017.03.17 09:10 300--leaf Feeling undesirable

I think we all know that we tend to choose long-term partners based on desirable characteristics no matter how "unshallow" we are. We prefer good-looking, healthy, and successful long-term partners. I think it goes back to evolutionary instincts. We know that such partners possess "positive" genes which can be passed on to your offspring.
And then there goes ADHD. It is a negative or not bad enough to be driven to extinction. While I do have ADHD (a negative), I do have other positives so I am not at the bottom of the barrel. I do think it is a bad thing though and makes you lose in the dating game. Given all things were equal, you won't pick a partner with a mental disorder to have kids with. You don't want your kids to have a mental disorder. Men who are serious about having kids will hence probably not pick me. At least the ones who have really desirably characteristics will not pick me.
So I can't help but think that my ADHD will force me to marry "down" for other aspects, simply because my ADHD will make me less of a catch. Nobody will think of someone with a mental disorder as a catch. Of course, good-looking people such as Zooey Deschanel and David Beckham have mental disorders, but their extremely nice appearance "compensated" for that and still made them a catch.

2017.02.09 20:43 plentyOsauce Ugly duckling syndrome and dating?

Hey guys, this post may come off as one big humble brag, and for that reason I haven't felt comfortable asking my girlfriends about this sort of thing. I think have a classic case of ugly duckling syndrome, or at least in a not-so-serious stereotypical sense. I wasn't an attractive child, and I was very much a loner. But I developed my way of looking at the world and I value the parts of my personality I find unique. I have a strong sense of self. I've been through personal tragedies and come out the other side. I have a personal narrative that inspires me to be a better person and gives me strength.
In high school men started looking at me, and I always did my own thing, although I did notice the attention. I started dating in college, and now as a young woman of 24, I am a graduate student pursuing a terminal degree in the sciences. I love what I do, I love my friends and family, and I have diverse interests. I enjoy people and am very social but also introverted, the outgoing introvert. And I'm funny and enjoy my sense of humor and making people laugh. I am also analytical but literary and romantic and appreciate the beauty in many types of people and ideas.
People say I'm hot, beautiful, and sexy. These things are great, but I truly value my personality and worldviews over these things. I dress by my own personal style and have been described as having presence and character, for being personable and having a quiet confidence. I'm adventurous and enjoy traveling solo. So I've also been described as a free spirit.
Where am I going with this? Well, I struggle with my romantic life because men fall at my feet, but I tend to get bored of them and wonder if someone better is out there. One time I was at a bar and a guy friend commented, 'what are you doing on tinder? You can have anyone in this bar.' The comment shocked me because it implies entitlement in a way. But also, the options are overwhelming? I'm with a man I really enjoy being with, but he has expressed minor insecurity about me being easily able to leave and find an amazing partner. Is that true? Or does that mindset just make it more difficult to be happy with who I'm with? I've had a slurry of relationships and have been put on a pedestal of sorts in each one. I have my faults and insecurities, like everyone, so I know it's ridiculous and don't think anyone is lesser or more in any sense.
It may just be I haven't found the right man, but I do think the instant gratification of internet dating has created a sense of endless opportunity. Clearly this idea isn't new, and I wonder if I just struggle with the dating culture of the 20-something generation. The perfect partner doesn't exist, but someone who can challenge me and keep me interested might? I do identify with Zooey Deschanel's character in 500 days of summer, much to my disappointment. I'm almost that manic pixie dream girl type. I'm afraid I may never be tamed. Does anyone else identify?
Tl;dr A self-centered post about commitment phobia due to the millennial dating culture that creates a feeling of endless dating opportunities. That, and experiences of men quickly falling for me makes me fearful of finding a meaningful relationship in a sea of possibilities.

2015.06.01 08:46 -Just-Stop- [LIST] Sci-Fi & Comedy Alien Movies

They are the best-kept secret in the universe. Working for a highly funded yet unofficial government agency, Kay and Jay are the Men in Black, providers of immigration services and regulators of all things alien on Earth. While investigating a series of unregistered close encounters, the MIB agents uncover the deadly plot of an intergalactic terrorist who is on a mission to assassinate two ambassadors from opposing galaxies currently in residence in New York City.
Kay and Jay reunite to provide our best line of defense against a seductress who levels the toughest challenge yet to the MIBs mission statement: protecting the earth from the scum of the universe. While investigating a routine crime, Jay uncovers a plot masterminded by Serleena, a Kylothian monster who disguises herself as a lingerie model. When Serleena takes the MIB building hostage, there is only one person Jay can turn to -- his former MIB partner.
Even though agents J and K have been protecting the Earth from alien scum for many years, J still does not know much about his gruff partner. However, J soon gets an unexpected chance to find out what makes K tick when an alien criminal called Boris the Animal escapes, goes back to 1969, and kills K. With the fate of the planet at stake, J goes back in time and teams up with K's younger self to put things right.
