I was at work when I heard about Boston. It's usually a really fun, jokey environment, and to have everyone being so dead serious and afraid was unreal. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that none of my Boston friends were hurt. :( I hope everyone there gets all the help they need.

Welp, I've never had more near-heart attacks in a single day in my life.

Dad had the day off, went into the city to watch, was close enough that he his ears hurt from the sound.

One of the parents dropped of his kids early, to go vollenterr handing out drink at the finish line.

No one was able to get in touch with him all day after we heard, and he normally picks up his kids before 4pm.

5pm rolls around as we are all getting beyond freak, but he walks in, with a fake, putting on a brave act for the kids, and we just all pretend everything is normal.

Oh, and I wasn't suppose to be in today, got called in last minute, otherwise I would have gone in with my Dad . . .

I'm frustrated over how unorganized my college is. None of the shuttle drivers can figure out who has what route, one teacher still hasn't graded a single paper three weeks after it was turned in (she couldn't even tell us whether she'd received it or not), and at least one other keeps fluctuating on what the requirements for another paper are (and won't specify what he wants changed when he turns stuff back).

He was 45 minutes away. I don't know if that's actually more close than it seems and I'm being a cold-hearted dick. I have seen people, though, who were not near a disaster, nor were their families or friends, and they wanted to be pitied and cried over as if they were among the dead. And that is the lowest form of scum, at least to me. They should not want this kind of attention.

I'm sorry things escalated, maybe we could've avoided this mess if I worded my post better, though it's not the best opener for a SYM thread regardless.

Whenever I see people claim there's no connection between motives and a person's background it just seems like a knee-jerk reaction to stereotyping, which is fine but cuts out some important, if difficult, discussions. Motives don't appear out of nowhere and I'd wager the circumstances people experience throughout life, including those related to their gender, nationality, and many other things factor into their motivations, from the day to day to the long term.

This leads into finding why people do things like this and trying to minimise them in the future. Whatever the reasons, mental, political, national, no way of addressing them will be quick or easy, just as the issues themselves are rarely simple.

The incident at the library was apparently a fire and unrelated to the bombings.

I live south of Boston and it's some scary shit alright. But I guess that's the point. Attention whores with bombs generally want us to feel fear, so I'm just going to go to work and try not to be bothered by the mass panic.

What really concerns me isn't so much the danger of the actual bomber as the people who may try to profit off of this. Redditors are already spinning up fake "motivational stories" and piling extra tragedy on the incident, it's disgusting. Not to mention for a few days the BPD are going to be on a wild goose chase for bombers, so the actual criminal elements of the city can probably do whatever the hell they want for the next few days with no consequence.

My girlfriend was about to go into town for an interview when it happened. . . She hates crowds so she probably wouldn't have been hurt, but I thank the interview gods that she didn't get stuck in the city when the panic hit.

Fucking Boston, man. This city'll kill you.

I don't know any specific places, but like you said, it's a good idea to do your research before you decide who to give it to. Apparently a bunch of charities supposedly meant to support Haiti Relief and also breast cancer charities have come under fire recently for pocketing a bunch of the money

My dad got sick again, he has bleeding ulcers but this was worse. He had been having stomach pains, was sleeping on the couch then suddenly sat up, started convulsing and throwing up a lot (blood--he lost a lot). I freaked out, mom was calling 911 and I was still freaking out when the dispatch office called back and was talking to me. EMS came and got him, stabilized him in the ambulance and took him to an emergency room. Mom and I went to the emergency room, got in and saw him and he was looking a lot better, talking coherently but he was weak and cold. They transferred him to a bigger hospital for care.

I can't get the image of him convulsing and throwing up out of my mind. I seriously thought I was going to lose him, I thought it was the end. I was holding his hand and saying "I love you dad, I love you so much, please stay with me" and he opened his eyes wide and stared right at me and all I could think was "this is it, this is the end and I have to accept it." He says he doesn't remember anything. I'm still so scared that something is going to happen. It feels so unreal, like something you see happen on TV

Ugh.. what a rotten predicament you're in. At least he's where he needs to be right now.

At 17 I went in to get an X-ray and sonargram to check for stones, hernea, and other problems. They couldn't find a damned thing, but that didn't stop the pain from continuing.
I think not being able to figure out what's wrong with you and the cost of finding out is the worst thing. Because you're still suffering from whatever you hoped they'd find, but unless it's substantiated, everybody thinks you're a hypochondriac or exaggerating.

But the last two times I went to the hospital, it cost 1,300 for an x-ray, and then two years ago my esophagus started fucking up. Couldn't swallow properly for two months. Turned out it was just incrediibly bad acid reflux. That was $1,500 for the emergency room visit.

I've had a dry cough for 6 years. I thought it must be dust or dog allergies, but my dog died last year and I've taken notes on where I cough and it's literally everywhere and at any time. I don't think my lung volume is what it should be. If I lift my arms horizontally and rotate my torso, I hear a noise that sounds like wood being sawed when I'm not breathing in or out, and I don't know if that's a normal thing everyone can do, but I don't think I used to hear it. Then again, it's really difficult to remember what it was life was like before I got this. No other symptoms. I'm not a smoker and I'm not around people who smoke. It's not bad enough to complain to the doctor about--"dry cough" is such a broad symptom and the one time I did mention it to a doctor (while I was in there for bursitis on my elbow, completely unrelated) he didn't seem to think it was a real issue and kind of gave the impression that he thought I was faking it/a hypochondriac. He did give me a referral for a chest x-ray, but I never went for some reason. Now I'm just kind of ashamed to go back because I did not follow up like I should have back then. Also afraid that although it's a pretty benign thing on the surface, it might be representative of something A LOT WORSE or something that I'll never be able to get rid of... a fear that does hit some hypochondriac alarm bells, so maybe I don't really have a problem at all and it's just in my head. It's not even painful, just annoying, and people around me notice it more often than I do.

Perfect examples of how our health care system sucks.

I myself suffer from a number of mild to moderately bad chronic health problems, and even when I've been tempted to go to the doctor for something the last couple years, I still haven't. I have no job or insurance, nor am I covered by my family, and they're always having financial troubles, so I'd hate to ask them unless it was for something really important. I know this is bad and I may end up suffering for it later, but I don't have a whole lot of options. And the worst part is, I know I'm not the only one in a situation like this.

I had to have that same dear friend reassure me that it's not my fault if he does something horrible to her. I feel like it would be, though, because maybe I didn't try hard enough to stop him or maybe I should have spoken to her directly even though she's only a friend of a friend. I want to think that he's changed and that he's not the toxic, manipulative person I knew, but even after I extended an olive branch he has made no move to atone.

I don't have a "true" familial relationship with my family. My extended family keeps to themselves, and my more immediate family doesn't get along. It ranges from simply having nothing or very little in common to my parents and siblings downright abusing each other, so I feel disconnected to them, and unsure how to ask my extended family for advice, or if I even could.

I guess I just want someone to have a platonic "true" familial relationship with. Just so I can have someone to ask for advice and spend time with and stuff.

So as I was leaving for work, this terrior or corgi mix (couldn't really tell which) comes up to me, happy little fella. It had just started sleeting, so I got the tags and called his owner. Owner was too far away to come get the dog, though. The owner also said he had no idea how the dog kept escaping; turns out he was hopping onto the 3-ft-high fence and going about his merry way. (This surprised the owner, which surprised me; I had put the dog back in his yard and was leaving only to hear a noise and turn around to see it jump the fence right in front of my eyes, as if to tell me "oh fuck you I'm not staying outside in this.")

Long story short, I wound up taking it to the Humane Society shelter near me for the guy to come pick it up later. I left a message for the owner where the dog was and that he needed to buy a high-fence (preferably enclosed) fenced kennel for his backyard. As they started to bring it toward the back it resisted and jumped onto my leg as though it wanted to stay with me.

St-st-stupid dog, it's not like I want a pet or anything... ;_;

Don't be a pussy. Tell him to calm the fuck down and tell him he's welcome to come play PnP. I'm not saying you need to get into a fight with the dude, but he shouldn't be reacting like that over some conversation.

If you haven't been blowing up her phone (or IMs in this case) I don't see a reason for the dude to flip out. If your story isn't biased, he sounds a bit like an insecure short-dick scared that someone's trying to bone his girl.

I remember one time he responded to her status updates with the phrase "sorry guys, she's taken!". I thought it was skeezy at the time, but I thought mentioning my opinion wouldn't have been well-received.
I agree with you. As to any personal bias, let me fill you in on the wider picture; I haven't had a conversation with this young woman since mid-December, and the conversation was flowing well on both sides (there were a few gaps, but that was because we were both doing things irl). My last three IMs had no reply - I summarised them in my previous post, and I posted them in quick succession. It was then that I received the command from the bf, which I'll post in slightly edited form (names have been changed to protect the etc.):

>Minifig, please stop messaging S. It annoys me. S has asked me not to say anything but I do not like it.

>> No. 376603

So.. They talked about it. She probably stopped responding because of whatever poison he spouted off at her once he found out you two were conversing. He sounds like an insecure, controlling piece of shit.

At least he said please.

I would just tell him to relax and that you aren't trying to get with his girl or anything, you're just old friends. Maybe invite him to come with her to your club thing, just to show there's no hostility. This probably won't change anything, but at least you can say you made your intentions clear and were civil/polite to him about this at first. If he keeps being a douche, THEN you can tell him to fuck off.

This is assuming of course that you don't have ulterior motives to get into his gf's pants. If you actually do want his woman then gentlemen's honor says you should challenge him to a duel. I recommend pistols at dawn. Russian Roullette if you have slow reaction times.

Funny thing is, I tried getting with her friend a few months ago. Nothing ever came of it, because this is me we're talking about. The possibility that she might bring her friend along is one of the reasons why I want her to come back to the club.

I think he's still a member of the club - he definitely joined around the same time she did. That's why I'm concerned about him escalating things.

Are you absolutely, positively sure that her boyfriend exists, and isn't a 'thing' she does on the internet to intimidate guys away from her who she doesn't want to deal with? I had a ladyfriend that used to do stuff like that. She wanted to spare her reputation as actually having a backbone and telling men to leave her alone, so she invented a guy that only existed on the internet to warn other dudes away from her. Her reputation would be spared, and men she didn't want to speak to would think they'd have to contend with Tarzan if they didn't leave her alone without her having to tell them bluntly to stop. After experiencing this phenomenon more than once from different women I've gotten to know on this here internet, it's just kinda something I take into consideration when situations like this crop up. Sometimes it's legitimately an asshole controlling them, sometimes they just want to give you that impression so you'll leave them alone. Drama drama.

Supposing this dude does exist, the situation is difficult. She clearly tolerates and enjoys this controlling, entitled manchild's company enough and is nonconfrontational enough to think she can control them, or prevent behavior or outcomes she actually would have to make decisions she doesn't want to have to make. Right now, she wants a reality where she can be with this guy and his negative qualities don't exist, so simply tries to avoid situations in which he'd be exposed and his weakness would rise to the surface. And in turn, he uses this in order to justify isolating her from situations in which he isn't in control. So, she tries to deny them. And all the while, her boyfriend runs around like a five year old with a labler reminding everybody "HAHA SORRY GUYS. ALL MINE. MINE. TAKEN." So even if you could or should kick his legs out from under him and put treads on his face should he start shit, no matter how much he deserves it, it won't change the situation much. It'd just drive her into his arms and isolate her further.

Your ulterior motive for getting her to come back is kind of clunky since it's to attract her friend to follow her (sorry, that's how I feel. It's not flattering, but I'm keeping it real.) but in the process you stumbled into a thorny situation. At least you aren't trying to get her to come back to get into /her/ pants. This is good, because you could honestly say, "I'm not trying to get into her pants" to your conscience and mean it. It also gives you a justifiable reason to approach that friend of hers on the subject of her asshole boyfriend and explain what's up. As an outsider to that little social group, you don't have the credibility to try and talk to that girl about her prick beau, but as her ladyfriend, that other girl certainly does. And if you bring the evidence of what kind of jerk she's dealing with to her, she'll have more influence and credibility what he's doing is unacceptable than you ever could as a potential new friend and as a dude.

If you choose to intervene for her sake, and rocking that little tree might be wise for both parties involved (pressure goes a long way) bear in mind that this guy sounds potentially volatile and will be searching for the nearest candidate to have possibly interfered in his little controlled relationship. Which means he might visit or corner you some place and bark all kinds of ridiculous shit at you to intimidate and frighten you off from saying anything and rocking his control over the chick. I recommend hanging around somebody who would not take that kind of shit happening in their presence without being able to slap his shit, if he decides to get up in your face, since it doesn't sound like you enjoy confrontation or conflict at all if he decided to get physical.

Ugh, so for years I've always been kind of a social recluse due to a combination of an extremely introverted nature and being a nerd in an environment where studiousness was social suicide. As a result I never got to pick up normal socialization cues like how to approach someone, start a conversation with them, ask them if they want to spend time together, or maintain a friendship after putting out the initial gestures.

I want that to change. Thing is, I'm already in my mid-20's at which point everyone else around me is way past that stage and already has formed close friendships so it's extremely hard trying to catch up. And every time I try to do something about it I only end up coming off as massively creepy instead of just shy and probably scaring off any potential friends. Any advice from fellow introverts who managed to overcome this? Observing other people and trying out the standard Google help tips isn't really working.

I actually had an ex who did what Minifig's describing, but when I was trying to continue a preexisting friendship with his new girlfriend. He said he wanted to remain friends, but if I tried to talk to him, he misconstrued it as flirting, and if I tried to start a conversation with his girlfriend, he took it as a threat. He severed ties with me and with several friends he'd known even longer than I'd known him, male and female. I don't really have any interest in keeping up with what he's doing or talking to him ever again.

I try to restrain cursing to being really angry or being really excited. It loses its appeal when people use it like punctuation.

Given that I met the guy at the exact same time I met her then yes, I'm pretty sure he exists.

As to your other points, you're completely spot-on. I am kinda skeezy, but I do honestly want "S" to have fun, and I was under the assumption that being at the club was one way to go about it. If she doesn't want to, that's okay too. She can make her own mind up about stuff, and I can't make her do stuff she doesn't want to.

I've just sent him a message saying exactly that, as well as a few salient points (such as "I'm not trying to steal your girl, so stop acting like I am" and "I haven't spoken to her since December" and "You talked about it, then decided to go ahead and be a dick anyway? Christ, you're an arsehole". Okay, I didn't say that thing exactly like that, but I sure wanted to. Oh, how I wanted to...).

... in fact, he's just replied to me. According to him, the only reason he told me to back off is that I keep mentioning her friend, and it annoys S, who is too nice to tell me. I didn't mention her once during last night's conversation... but I have asked after her in previous conversations, mainly because I haven't spoken to S' friend since around Halloween. He also told me not to give him relationship advice; in his words "we've been together 5 years and we have no trust issues" (I was checking S's timeline, and she did seem pretty excited about their 18 month anniversary earlier this month).

I know I seem like I'm digging for stuff, but I'm kinda pissed about him pulling this on me. Uch...

That's the sort of thing these people do. In their heads, all they know is a great big sense of possession and control over whatever it is they're trying to keep for themselves and keep other people away from. They'll say anything they can think of in order to keep you or anybody else away from them, including putting words in the mouths of who they reason is their possession. "We love eachother so don't even think of getting involved/We spoke about this so whenever you want to speak to her come speak to me first/ She's scared of you so she told me to tell you to don't talk to her anymore/ Don't talk to her friend either." The difficult thing about it is it's totally and completely reasonable that somebody in a position exactly like yours, if the situation were reversed, could verywell be that of a homewrecker. Or you could be a stalker/predator/manipulator. When it comes down to he-said she-said, it's a gray area. Bear in mind that whether or not you are, it can appear that way to people if he screams for help and tries to make you/others out to be invading their space.

It doesn't help that a lot of women sort of seem to like guys that do this, or at least like deferring to men who act this way. So whether he's at fault for being a controlling, insecure little shit, or she legitimately tapped him to be the big scary mask, it's ambiguous without proof. Just the way they like it.

>Every time you talk to S you ask about R [S's friend]. It annoys S and I. S is such a wonderful person that she hasn't got it in her to tell you herself.

>I'm sorry that you took what I said to be a bout of insecurity caused by your messaging my girlfriend, but I assure you; it's not.

When I chat to S on facebook, I usually ask about her friend R (I'm not using real names, as it could lead to even more drama), who I haven't really spoken to for about 5 months and used to have a crush on.

Speaking of which, I just received this message from "S":

>Im sorry everything got out of hand. I like chatting with you but it feels like you're only ever interested in R and not actually talking to me which is kinda annoying i guess.

So... yeah. S appears to be the only one in the scenario who's acting like a grown-up and straight up told people what she's feeling.

I honestly didn't think my mentioning R was too bad... last time I did it, it was mostly just me asking "Why the heck hasn't R communicated with me lately?", to which I was told that Stuff had Happened. No more information was given, and I didn't ask for it - it felt like the best thing to do at the time.

Obviously, I was wrong. Only thing I can do now is sincerely apologise to S and insincerely make peace with D.

When it gives you the 504 error, don't try to post again. Go to the main page and refresh a few times. Usually you'll see that the message did go through and the 504 error just happens for no raisin reason. If you still don't see your message after waiting a little while, try to post it again. And use a simple password for all your posts in case you want to fix or delete messages. You'll get a bunch of weird text, but it will get deleted, so no worries.

/The More You Know

Now, Minifig, here's what I recommend you do about your little situation. First, talk to S and tell her that you feel like her boyfriend is trying to intimidate you and keep you from talking to her. Tell her that you will back off and stop talking to her if she wants you to. Say that her boyfriend should stop being such a controlling asshole let her make decisions for herself. Next, apologize for talking about R so much (even if you weren't) and maybe don't ask about her anymore til things cool down a little. If you really still want to be friends with S, don't let her feel like you're only interested in talking to her to find out about her friend, even if it's not really like that.

You are good people. I thought about making the same offer, but money's pretty tight on my end right now, and people might feel weird accepting something from some random Anon.

There is a non-cellular scaffolding called the extracellular matrix that basically defines the shape of your tissues and organs. It's possible to reintroduce stem cells onto this matrix and have them grow over it to produce a fully-functioning organ. I don't believe this is perfected by any means, but they have made rhythmically beating rat hearts with this, and I believe they have attempted it on at least one human heart (that was not fit for transplant). This is an enormous breakthrough in organ transplantation, because we can use the recipient's own cells to grow tissue over the scaffolding, and as a result, they will never need anti-rejection drugs because the "new" organ is not registered by the body as an "other".

Right now, the only way we can get this matrix is to strip an existing donor organ of its cells and replace them with the recipient's. This takes a lot of time and it's difficult to strip the matrix without damaging it. BUT. If we can print an extracellular matrix from a template, which is what they're trying to do, we have no need for stripping procedures OR donors. If you are in need of a liver transplant, for instance, all we need is some of your stem cells (which we can get from your skin) and your very own liver can be regrown in a lab in a few weeks! No waiting list! No waiting for a young compatible person in good health who has signed their donor card to die tragically in a car accident.

How in the hell could someone fake having a boyfriend like that? This is sort of a situation I can only imagine succeeding if you only know the girl through the internet and not in real life - or with girls who are probably in the crazy deep end already, if they're willing to create a legit looking account and a web of lies that's convincing enough for others to believe in.

It also kind of saddens me that the first thing someone considers now-a-days when they hear about a situation where a guy's being a manipulative douchebag is, "Hm. Is this even real?" It almost feels like an excuse to justify ignoring what might be something foul going on.

I don't think this guy is being manipulative towards his girlfriend. He is being polite about the situation and he tried not to give the real, more personal reason (Minifig is creeping her out a bit and she does not like him talking about/pestering her about her hot friend) until pressed. What he says is probably true--she doesn't want to hurt his feelings so she never said anything, but quietly resents his behaviour and talks to her boyfriend about it. He says that SOMEONE has to break the news to Minifig, and if she's not going to do it, he will.

I've had experiences a lot like this one, where I was too scared/cowardly/polite to break it off with people I didn't even like talking to that much, so another friend stepped in for me. I have a tendency to laugh a lot when I'm nervous and prattle on about stuff which some guys take to mean that I am interested in the conversation (or THEM) when I am definitely 100% not. I generally try to end "friendships" with people like this by hoping they just go away, and when they message me further, I do not like it at all and will not respond to them after a while of my own free will.

And man, they have been together for FIVE YEARS. He is probably not a massively controlling person who prevents her from forming friendships because that type of person wouldn't have let her form this friendship with Minifig in the first place. They scour your facebook and text messages and shit constantly for signs that they are not devoted strictly to them, force you to break off friendships, keep you home from any activities (like a club) where you may meet new people. in that sort of relationship you lose all your old friends and become cut off from the world, unable to form new bonds with people because your controlling boyfriend will scare them off right away or guilt you into ditching them by threatening suicide or whatever. S's boyfriend does not fit the profile of an abusive controller at all.

It might be tough, but if a person has a problem with someone else, they need to say so instead of having a third party do it, especially if that third party might come across as suspect. Yeah, this guy doesn't sound quite like an abusive asshole, or as controlling as he could be, but he definitely seems like the type to have the kneejerk "SHE'S MINE, SHE'S MINE, STAY AWAY FROM HER!" reaction if another guy so much as glances her way.

>they have been together for FIVE YEARS

I don't know, I can imagine people planting their glowing plant seeds, watching it sprout, and then develop a peculiar bulb that later erupts in a swarm of mutant fireflies. Not that I think such a thing is particularly likely, but I can imagine it.

It's more likely that any spectacular failure would be of the real-world, depressing kind. Like accidental cross-pollination with non-GE wild members of the base plant species, causing species-wide mutation, with far-reaching effects on the ecosystem that would take decades to completely study.

It's not the first thing I consider, but it is something I consider, after meeting a lot of people (and a lot of terrible people) and having a lot of bizarre experiences. When multiple, unrelated chicks over the course of 15 years follow the same pattern, unrelated to one another and in totally different social circles, bragging to you how they scared off or diverted more intimidating or creepy/annoying men with this technique, you do kind of have to wonder: How many spiders are hiding in the grass, for every one you can see? When you observe a phenomenon actually happening and query to the individuals why they did it and what they were trying to prove, I guess it could be considered cynical. But it isn't inherently wrong.

In my (previously stated) experience, he'd only be "being polite" if the girl Minifig legitimately conversed with tapped her boyfriend to deal with him. If he didn't, he proactively approached the situation and got involved, solely to throw out the "OHHH. HI. I NOTICED YOU WERE TALKING TO MYYY GIRLFRIEND" card. That's not politeness, that's diplomatically establishing territory. It's phase one to put his foot up on top of her and claim his possession, and the subtle implication is that whomever is on the receiving end of this social display needs to keep their distance, or the person peacocking will consider them infringing on their territory, and anything they do or say will be considered self-defense. And given the girl's reaction, it does seem as if her boyfriend both lied about the seriousness and depth of their relationship, as well as took the liberty of reading her correspondences and responding to Minifig without her knowledge. What he was trying to do here is eclipse the girl and reroute Minifig away from her, completely. How she actually felt was irrelevant to her boyfriend, since she piped up apparently lacking knowledge this was even going on.

It's not sweet, it's not cute, it's not nice, it's not polite. It's a controlling behavior to read your girlfriend's private correspondences, respond to people messaging them, throw out how serious your relationship is and say "go away, signed: both of us." It's not on the same level as locking your girlfriend into a closet or phoning their friends anonymously to threaten them and put distance between them and her, no. And that's the point. The severity is limited both by the intelligence of the douchebag, the severity of their infatuation and the level they're willing to sink to to get what they want. The smart ones won't come out guns blazing, the smart ones will "be polite" and smile while turning family, friends and anybody they don't personally like or trust away from the door. This is real life, not Lifetime. Abusive assholes are not mincing, unearthly ugly or handsome men followed by dramatic music.

>I've had experiences a lot like this one, where I was too scared/cowardly/polite to break it off with people I didn't even like talking to that much, so another friend stepped in for me.

Please work on your backbone. Cuntbags like the guy Minifig has run across prey on this weakness and use it to muddy the waters of whether they're being a chivalrous hero on the behalf of a bucklekneed lady or a controlling asshat. If she would just tell him herself if she felt this way, and society didn't expect girls to waffle on actually telling fellows they're uncomfortable with to go away, it wouldn't even be up for debate. If this guy did this for another man, much as many might hate to admit it, it'd be more apparently possible he was getting involved from the peanut gallery and overstepping his bounds. :(

Again pulling from my experiences, I'd say he does sound only as abusive as he thinks he can conceivably get away with. And that is the WORST KIND, because the closer the relationship becomes, the more trust given, the more privacy, the higher and greater degree of abuse. But, it sounds like the girl Minfig was corresponding with may not have been drinking the kool-aid as much as the douche was betting, and that is a good sign.

there's the fucking problem

For whatever reason a lot of girls do the avoidance game. I know I do it. I know my friends do it. People have had to stick up for me when some guy wouldn't fuck off but he wasn't being RUDE to me so I felt bad telling him off. I've had to do the same for others. I've done it a few times for strangers on a bus where a girl was obviously uncomfortable with being chatted to and the guy either did not notice her body language or just didn't care. This is just kind of a thing that happens on a regular basis, and I've never actually realised how often it does until you said that.

This situation really looks, to me, like it's a case of avoidance game than controlling boyfriend. Maybe it is cowardice but that doesn't mean at all that this girl isn't capable of doing it, even if she is not really that meek in any other aspect. And I know Minifig and I know what he's like about girls he's interested in, so when her hot friend comes up as a point of contention, it's pretty easy to guess what happened there. Also the fact that the boyfriend brought up the hot friend suggests he knows Minifig is interested in HER and not his girlfriend.

I feel like you guys are making way too many assumptions about her complete innocence and his douchebaggery with little to go on, and it's not really anyone's business but their own to be honest. Don't try to "fix" their relationship or anything, Minifig. If you want to try to keep this friendship just tell her you're sorry for irritating her and you won't pester her about her friend again, but you'd like to keep talking because you had a good fun platonic time with that. And then keep your word. If the friend hasn't contacted you to go on a date yet and S does not like you inquiring about her then she's prooooobably not interested. If you rekindle the friendship and whatshisface backs off, I was right and this was a thing where she just got him to do something she didn't feel like she was up to. If she doesn't, then it might be because she just doesn't want to anymore, or because of her boyfriend, but either way you're not close enough with her to make the call or meddle with her relationship, so respect her wishes and move on.

I don't think there's anything anyone can do to "fix" the alleged-innocent alleged-douchebag boyfriend's relationship. But, pointing out this instance to her would help substantiate and give her some history to go on, if she ever starts to see patterns. Sometimes all it takes is knowing the truth and the history and the repeat offenses for a person to make a more informed choice and not doubt themselves for making it. Sometimes, girls need facts to compete with feelings when a dude is dirt.

Ordinarily, I agree, I'd say, "Minifig kinda Minifigged it again," but he does learn from time to time. And she did pipe up explaining she wasn't trying to ignore or leave him to her boyfriend to death with. To me that doesn't seem like a fabrication to save face because it seemed like 'sic the boyfriend on him' didn't work.

You know what I consider rude? Not telling people how you feel yourself and letting it drag on.

Okay, it's not rude, I was just trying to be dramatic. But start being straight with people. There's a polite way to say most things. Maybe this won't make you feel better, but that's something you have to deal with. I don't always like having these conversations with people that bug me, but if you're an adult, you need to be able to communicate like one.

I'm a bit floored that people even decide to play games like this. Well, game probably isn't the word I want here, but I feel that when you're beyond high school, you should be able to express yourself clearly without all this other bullshit on the side.

I dunno, "I wasn't TRYING to ignore you" is a pretty average excuse for not talking to someone.

Also her boyfriend said
>S has asked me not to say anything
so she didn't sic him on Minifig, she just talked to him about it and he tried to play white knight because she conveyed that it bothered her but she was just going to take it anyway. It's not the best of decisions but it doesn't really raise any possessive future abuser alarm bells.

The subject of how and why people pull the 'go neutral and hope they go away, hope somebody else intercepts' thing has perplexed me for a while. I've got a theory, but it's not very flattering. It's all about accountability, guilt and responsibility. It's also probably incredibly sexist, but we're a sexually dimorphic species. So to me it's the same as being called a sexist if you say, "Men are typically taller, heavier, stronger, and their brains work slightly differently." Sure it's sexist, but it's also true.

Unfortunately, I don't know enough about if this sort of thing shows up in other societies or cultures, so I can't apply it as an observation as anything but anecdotes for our own. But, it seems like it's some sort of defense mechanism women developed for existing in a more socially based hierarchy among themselves, than their male counterparts. There are different expectations for women in any society you go in. At least in this one, the ideal perception is of a person who is friendly, reasonable, and is perceived positively by their society. Or at the very least, not given a reason to be reacted to negatively, have grudges held, or be held responsible for somebody elses wrath. Avoiding somebody elses wrath (especially somebody who happens to be bigger, more driven and have some sort of expectation of the female) is kind of high on the list. Keeping other people from thinking negatively or holding things against you is also intuitively a concern, whether realized or not. And that means not being the one to face the music if somebody has to tell The Cousin her ass looks enormous in that dress and to put on something that fits her age. Preferably somebody else will do it and be considered the asshole, so nobody else has to be seen as one by her. And thus, order is restored with a few hurt feelings (and by extension, grudges) as possible.

Meanwhile men have little to no choice in this area, because it's considered being a wimp if you avoid being direct. If you're caught, you'll lose points quicker as a harsher penalty, because it's a behavior more tolerated among women than men. So, men see absolutely no point to -not- being forward and forthright, because farting around hoping an earthquake happens so they can change the subject without looking guilty of avoiding the topic is a gigantic waste of their time and effort.

I don't want to make assumptions, but I think what Minifig's been dealing with is that whole issue of "if you're a guy, you can't be platonic with a girl and vice versa, all guys like girls, all girls like guys, everything ends in sex, everyone has to compete for everyone" deal and I hate that people like Mini's friend's boyfriend are like that.

I knew girls in high school who thought merely being in class with a guy or breathing the same air as him meant you were encroaching on the boy that she in many cases claimed she was with but probably didn't even like her. People are far too competitive with romance, there are many who act like there's a 500 woman to one man ratio and vice versa. This is also what leads to that "nice guy/girl" syndrome shit, that to win someone, all you need to do is be nice to them.

You sure about that? I'm on antidepressants myself and couldn't imagine being without them.

Also, I'm graduating six years after I first enrolled at college. It's weird because there's a bit of a disconnect with some of the younger students (some girls I was talking to didn't even know what Xena was). I don't put much thought into it. Some people get their first degrees into their 30s and beyond. I wouldn't worry about it, ya'll. Also, there's probably a saying that goes with this but I don't know what it is. Don't worry too much about "graduating on time" because it's the end result that matters, right?

Besides, it's not like either one of you has kids or anything. That's a pretty common story with my high school peers. And most of the girls that got knocked up went to school at some point so yeah.

That might be part of it. Playing along and laughing when nervous is submissive behaviour, it lets the other person know that you aren't a threat. It's the human equivalent of a dog putting its tail between its legs. Not pissing off someone who is physically larger and more powerful than you is kind of important, especially if pissing them off might end in rape, so women are more likely to defer to "play along and avoid as much as possible until my social group comes to help me" when some guy is creeping them out than men. Men are totally capable of doing it too, they just don't feel the need to as often. And guys seem to be less willing to stand up for other guys for some reason so if you DON'T attempt confrontation first, you might be waiting for help that only has like a 10% or less of actually coming.

Direct confrontation has a place but that place is when you and the opponent are on equal ground or the opponent is weaker than you in some way (physically, socially, whatever). It doesn't work when you aren't in a position of power which is why other strategies for dealing with creepy people exist.

I dunno how long you've been coming to plus4, but essentially this place and it's people is the major reason I was able to eject myself from my formerly completely shitty life with my abusive Mother (update: she's exactly the fucking same even after I've repeatedly explained to her why she needs to stop SURPRISING NO ONE) and on into building a much less shitty life on my own. I still have contact with my family, but I'm generally happier when I avoid Mum. I didn't manage to get help until AFTER I dropped out of high school from crippling anxiety and depression. Last year I went to a party, got molested (I say this because wasn't really sexual assault), hit bottom and started anti depressants.

I am in a much better place now than I was even six months ago, I've spent that time away from the brunt of my depression and anxiety and surrounded myself with people who care for and love me, when I'm having anxious or upsetting emotions I can take a step back and tell myself I'm better than all that, I'm more capable and I can handle myself, even if I fuck something up, I know because I've seen it.

In other news my ladycrush is back because I think she's into me, too. I'm gonna hold off saying anything for another month, since we have a group project with a bunch of friends to finish up, and I don't want to ruin anyone's fun with any possible awkward fallout.

I end up staying over at her place at least once a week and we inevitably cuddle, hold hands when we walk around, recently we've started smooching on the cheek and exchanging eskimo kisses. I've initiated most of this stuff, but she always reciprocates. We often joke about being a couple to the point where I'm pretty sure we're just openly flirting at times. We've even joked about how I would have to be the one to make the first move because she likes A Man of Action...

The problem is that she does 80% of this stuff (the kissing is a thing I've never seen/heard of her doing) with her friends 90% of this stuff is shit I do with my friends (I hate cheek kissing as a greeting but what can you do, and platonic cuddles are great) and we've also talked about how much a lesbian relationship would suck because we love the D but she's always telling me how pretty I am and showing me her new vibrator and AUGH MIXED SIGNALS.

you are the only one to use the word conspiracy. There's no conspiracy, because as you said, it's a well known practice that is just overlooked by people who are under it, because they think their doctor is of course not part of it, he's so kind when he prescribe that shit after all....

I used to think anyone could learn to do anything with enough practice (especially after my art teachers/fellow students said "there's no such thing as talent, you can do anything if you work hard"), but I'm starting to question it.

There's a girl in the room next to my dorm who practices singing really loudly and off-key on a regular basis until late at night, and I honestly don't think she's getting any better at all. She sings every song in the same style, even if it doesn't fit, and when I asked her not to be loud, her excuse was "I want to be Katy Perry". That doesn't excuse being loud and slamming on the wall and singing totally offkey and running in the hallway late at night when I have a raging migraine.

that's not working hard, that's just being a tit. working hard means striving to do better and recognise & fix your mistakes.

some things take more intrinsic ability than others though. i mean if you are tone deaf you will never be able to sing well, if you naturally have a really monotone nasally voice you will never be able to sing well. it's like how you'll never win the high jump medal at the olympics if polio ravaged your legs as a kid no matter how hard you try to be the best crippled high jumper that ever lived. sometimes your efforts are best invested elsewhere.

>we've also talked about how much a lesbian relationship would suck because we love the D

There's this new trend all the kids are trying called "being bisexual". But in all seriousness, sexuality is a lot more fluid than most people would have you believe, so there's nothing wrong with fooling around with your gal pal and still liking the D at the same time. You seem interested, she seems interested, don't worry about anything else. Seize the opportunity.

I was assuming the issue was more about being in a closed relationship and still wanting it. Or something. I can't keep up with you crazy kids these days.
>> No. 376815
We're both technically bisexual (AKA we don't give a shit), that isn't the issue, the issue is whether or not she wants a romantic relationship with me, and the chance that asking will set off an awkward bomb so huge that it damages our friendship irreparably.

I'm not SURE she's into me, and I can't FIND OUT until June as I mentioned, but I'm tentatively hopeful.


Got it right. We're not 'open relationship' type people, though, hence the "man being lesbians would be great BUT WHAT ABOUT THE D"

The thing is that practice alone isn't enough, there has to be experimentation within that practice. It sounds like the problem isn't that this girl is incapable of learning to sing, but that she is unwilling to practice in a way that's actually conducive to growth. She's like those kids who draw only anime because that's the style they're interested in, and therefore never study life drawing or western cartoon styles, and therefore their anime art always remains shitty. As opposed to the kids who love anime art, but study everything and therefore become better anime-styled artists as a result of their learning.

You have to take yourself outside of your comfort zone to grow. It's not real practice if you only do what you're comfortable with and/or good at already. I speak from experience as an artist here. I was one of those shitty anime artists once. My "base" style (i.e. when I'm not trying to imitate anything specific) is still very anime inspired. But because I've studied traditional art, rubber hose, and even John K-style cartoons (and hell, even this shitty modern Flash style), I have learned things that have made me a solid artist that I could never have been if I had only imitated anime my entire life.

So the cat shelter I volunteer at had our annual charity auction/dinner thing last night. As the technical co-ordinator, I was in charge of tallying bids/getting receipts/not fucking things up (which I managed to mostly do). Overall it went well, though we didn't take in as much as last year (we also had less people, so it might work out to the same $/person, but it's still disappointing).

Thing is, this is pretty much my "big thing" for the year. The only social event I go to, and I'm working behind the curtains.

Probably for the best, though, since I figured out that it hurts to be too happy. Also the dress pants I wore only fit because I used the wrong connector; unless I can lose at least 30 pounds, I will never wear them again. (Which means I will never wear them again, as I'm quite lazy. Also I hate hate hate hate hate getting dressed up)

Good news! I'm officially far enough out of depression for brushing my teeth to have value again. Bleeding gums are pretty neat. Also, little things are worth yelling over and human contact no longer annoys me. I have very little control over my emotions, though. Crying for no reason is nice, in a weird way.

I guess this is my way of explaining I'm probably seeing a psychiatrist or something in the next month. My mom found a free medical place of some sort or another, and I said I'd go if she went and at least got her prescriptions rechecked. It does dental and head shrinking and stuff.

I knew it wasn't mine. And I knew it was kind of rude. But I opened the box.

I remember how it all started. A thread on 4chan. My friend was making this stupid thread about what was in his box. I thought it was pretty fucking gay, and just watched T.V. while he laid on his bed, clicking away on his lap top and laughing to himself.

"Hey bro," he called out to me, "I'm going to Taco Bell. Watch my box."

"Err," I said, "Is it going to do anything?"

He just laughed and grabbed his jacket. Moments later he was gone.

I approached the box. I watched it carefully. I knew there was something inside that I probably wasn't supposed to see. If it weren't meant to be private... my friend would have opened it by now.

I couldn't help myself. I opened it anyway. There was a woman inside. A real life, breathing, woman.

More than that. It was movie actress Emma Stone.

As soon as the box was opened, she leaped out in a panic.

"Oh Gangsta Squad," Emma Stone cried, "You are so manly!"

I knew it was true, but that didn't stop me from having my way with her. From sliding the bottom of her red dress up to reveal that milky white ass.

"Hmph," I grunted, mildly amused, "No panties."

"No. Never," she said in a hushed prayer.

I smacked that milky white until it was as red as her dress.

"Do you like being smacked red by the Gangsta Squad ma'am? Do you like it when I turn your butt cheeks into dirty tomatoes?"

"YES!" Emma Stone screamed, "YES, IM A TOMATO!"

And then she actually transformed to a tomato and the whole situation was just kind of perplexing.

why do I always want to run? what I am running from, what am I looking for? my life is pretty ok.

does anyone else get those prophetic dreams? two years ago I had a very specific one about my current job, down to the walk-in setup, the sauces in cambros, the view outside, the empty kebabs. I've had quite a few of these and every time I realize my dream is fulfilled, I feel one step closer to something. like I'm on the right track. these dreams are what have kept me going even when shit got too hard - I always knew that somehow I'd end up okay.

>does anyone else get those prophetic dreams?

Yeah, I do. There were two specific instances I know I dreamed of beforehand, but they were both pretty weird. One was a self-fulfilling prophecy kinda thing, which really threw my head for a loop.

The other future-dream was sort of the opposite of self-fulfilling, since it didn't actually happen. When I got to the place and time I dreamed about, I recognized it and did things differently than in my dream. I knew if I hadn't had that dream, the events of the dream would have happened, but because I dreamed about it happening it didn't. Dunno if that really counts as a prophetic dream or not.

I actually get kinda scared that some of the dreams I have now are prophetic. Like a few nights ago I dreamed a really depressed, old, obese ugly bearded woman asked me out on a date. I felt too bad to say no so I just mumbled something (which is probably what I would do, since I am a coward) and then woke up. It was probably just a manifestation of some unconscious bullshit, but there's the tingling fear in the back of my head that THE PROPHECY SHALL COME TO PASS.

On a slightly related note, the animated movie Waking Life is about dreams and is really really good. I recommend it to you all.

Oh right, Obama is visiting the country and I got a free day from work because of that.
Too bad things are going mostly people protesting about it (things haven't been nice for our godawful government).

I find funny how the internet glorifies Obama as some kind of nerd hero, while in Costa Rica, a lot of people mostly don't like him due the whole anti-imperialism political thing and other people think he's gonna solve all the problems of this country like a fairy godfather.

"If I didn't have bad relationships I wouldn't have any relationships."

This dude called me up again after months of me blowing him off because he wants to spend all his time hanging from trees in a zen like state and that is completely non-congruent with my spazz-ass techno-geek thing. And sure enough, about half way through the conversation he goes "hey do you have your harness wanna hang off a tree or a bridge or something?"

No dude. Just, No. I really think you're the only one who thinks that's cool.

And actually, I've been having a very free week, since Labor's day was march 1st and I managed to take today for free. And all this has served me for getting more sleep time.

i just realized i don't know what the actual line is for when a person is cheating on someone else

i know it depends on the relationship, but my god there are days...
>> No. 377222
It can be a slippery slope, which is why so many relationships can get rocky because of it. Generally any kind of physical contact, especially intimate, falls under the definition.
>> No. 377228
>Generally any kind of physical contact

So, if I mistakenly brush against a chick's ass & she just laughs it off (or even returns the favor), she's cheating on her significant other?
>> No. 377233
That's why I draw the line at that sort of thing: whether she actually feels anything for you, whether that was just a friendly laugh, whether you're doing anything or not, the thing is is that even if you really want to lose your partner, while you are with that person, you have made a commitment to them. And any action seen as being familiar with the person who is in this social contract, whether it's really a sexual action or just an innocent mistake, it can be misinterpreted, it can be used as evidence in larger arguments, you can effectively become an artificial splint in a bad breakup. It's just better to not really do anything that could be construed as trying to purposefully sabotage a relationship.

tl;dr you don't really fuck with touching someone elses' person because it's a slippery slope one way or the other. You brush against, them, you're forced into a tight space once or twice, you bump into each other, whatever; just don't make a habit of it if you or they made a promise to someone else.

yeah. looks like we both non-verbally agreed that we were crossing some lines that her partner would not be keen on. dialing it back.

makes me sad, though. she and i have an important connection, too. that's how commitment goes, i guess. anyone outside of that relationship gets the scraps.

better go kill myself. better go figure out what to do now.

I wish our college had some kind of set-up where people could have dorms to themselves.

There's a lot of kids here right now, some of which can't live at home due to the distance between where-ever they live and campus, but they don't want a roommate, and they're constantly arguing with whoever they share space with, because they don't want to ever share a bathroom or living space with anyone, and just having a roommate, period, annoys the hell out of them. And it's hard for those of us who don't mind.

>Hey Ram. I need to borrow some money
How much?
>some money.
Yeah. Do you plan to pay me back?
>little by little
Like that time I loaned you $130 to pay that bill?
Remember that? How I gave you $130 dollars from that stash composed of the money the paternal grandparents give every year? Ten years worth of it? The only income I've been able to keep since I were 18?
>I paid you back
I wouldn't have spent that $130 on JUNK FOOD and goddamned DVDS! It's emergency money, and I wanted it back in my wallet!
>I still paid you back.
Buy that shit with your own money. Grandma Money is emergency money.
>You still live here and you're going to contribute.
I'm the only one in this family that uses safety razors to shave when they need a haircut, doesn't go to movies, doesn't eat out, doesn't go to the theater, doesn't use or have a cell phone, doesn't drink, and doesn't go on 'joy rides' in the car. You make $45K a year. If I worked minimum wage I'd be lucky to make 15K. Pay your own fucking bills.
>you have no say in how I spend MY money.
That $130 was not yours to spend however you wanted. Candy and fucking movies is not a priority for me and YOU BUY ENOUGH OF THAT SHIT WITHOUT me contributing money to it.
>look, you live here tax free.
Oh, it's taxing, I assure you.
How much do you need?
.. I don't have that much.
>I'll take whatever you have. I really need it.
That's the problem. You take it, I won't have it, and I'll never get it back
>just pay what you can.
I'll give you $250.
>what? Couldn't hear you.
That's 1/6th what you're asking for.
