If you ever catch yourself thinking these thoughts... of which I am guilty of at times... you are likely not ready for a dating relationship and should take some time off;
"wow he split the bill, why didn't he simply pay for the first date? Cheapskate."
"This seems like a mediocre restaurant to take me for a first date."
"Hmm... I think i need someone with a higher income, he's only making 60k at his age"
"Wow, I paid for the first date and she wouldn't even kiss me goodnight."
"I can't believe she's STILL withholding sex after our third date"
"I can't give her any investment or commitment until I know exactly what the sex will be like"
BOTH of these attitudes are detrimental to a longlasting relationship. BOTH of these attitudes are a way of keeping score and serving your own needs.
You are a stranger to each other in the beginning stages of dating, it will involve some sacrifice. Marinating in bitterness because someone isn't treating you to a 5 star experience when you have a 2 star personality is insufferable behaviour. You aren't entitled to someones generosity, and they aren't entitled to your body. You are entitled to find a new partner who is better suited, but judging their character based on what they chose not to give you is a crummy way to look at other people.
Many PvP games die out a short while after launch, so I'm kinda concerned how "alive" the playerbase is.
btw which version should I buy? There's a huge price difference between different versions: Standart Edition, Deluxe Edition, Gold Edition, Collectors Edition.
EDIT: Thanks for all the advice. I bought the Standard Edition for 7,4 $ with regional pricing. (I just checked the XBOX game prices on Microsoft US and I can't believe people are paying 100$ for a game.)
I have a question about something I saw on the internet since the majority of it is fake, but the premise was you buy an ATM then set the usage fee as high as it goes, and then use multiple debt and credit cards with ATM charge refunds to get the money back, and then you just have a literal money machine. I was wondering IsItBullshit?
Edit: I have no interest in doing it I just noticed that an ATM is only like 1,500 if you get an older model off craigslist and was wondering the feasibility
I was in london at a gig a year or so ago with my mate. I went to get us a drink from the bar and my card got declined. Checked my online banking and there was more than enough money to pay for the drinks in it, so I went to the cash machine outside the club. Bear in mind I was completely sober at this point, so my judgement was still sound. Put my card in the machine and it said it was invalid or something, so the machine ate it. Me and my mate are entirely 1000% convinced this machine didn’t spit my card out. A week later I open my wallet and there it is. This was like 8 hours drive away from London where I live too.
We can’t wrap our heads around this situation, the ATM definitely ate the card, and that was that.
How the hell did it end up back in my wallet?
Just a word of warning not to full rely on price checking tools right now. I'm using awakened POE trade and lots of things are being valued a lot less than what they are worth. Things like level 3 enlightens, beachhead maps among a few things are being price fixed which is effecting the estimations. Just look at the first results of the trade searches, very often the top 20 results are made up by just 3/4 people who will never answer / respond to trade invites and just want to lower the estimations. You'll know its underpriced when you get spam pinged by 10 people as soon as you list it too.
To be clear: I was raised religious, I'm an atheist now but certain values such as purity stayed with me, hence my wish (but definitely not need) to remain a virgin until marriage.
My girlfriend of 2 years knew this and we, given that she isn't a virgin, thoroughly discussed how to make this work since I'd be in conflict with my values. We decided to both just be completely transparent (like 100%) about our past relationships and stall getting physical, which wasn't a big deal since we loved eachother. Everything was good.
It turned out her first and (I thought) only experience was a traumatic one of sexual assault/rape. We talked a lot, she hated not being a virgin and we eventually decided she could make up her own definition of virginity, giving her a chance to 'lose' it a second time. Something common to help rape victims cope.
So that's what we did. After a long time into the relationship we had sex on the premise of being each others first. It might sound lame but it really was a way of showing trust, bonding, closing past chapters etc. Yes before marriage, but given the emotional load it didn't really matter. At least, she behaved as though there was an emotional load-
Last night she suddenly confessed there's been two other guys. Obviously it's not cheating since it happened before me, but she did lie while having a hundred opportunities to tell me. I feel cheated out of my values. I feel stupid and disgusting for letting her touch me, for the whole ritual we did, list goes on. I broke up with her saying I need to think about this, since her entire personality is the opposite of what I thought. I don't know how much more she's been keeping from me, there's no way of knowing other than trusting her, and we all know I can't.
She's been apologising a lot, saying she was scared I wouldn't date her if I knew. (I still 100% would if she'd been honest from the start.) Not sure how much value her words have. The lying has gone on for 2 years, we started having sex after a year.
I feel extremely disgusted with myself for letting this happen. I get sick when I think of the innumerable times I gave her access to me. I feel like bashing my head in for trusting her. Somehow this feels like assault.
My question to you is whether I should or shouldn't take her back. Maybe some additional advice. Wise words. Anything honestly.

I'll start: hoping to get married in August and be able to have the big wedding we want (postponed from last year). Really hopeful that the vaccine progress means this will happen!
Edit: loving seeing your comments come in. So wholesome! Trying to keep positive and hope that we can see most of these things happen this year. Big love to everyone on this sub!
Edit 2: wholesome except for the bus wank guy.
Hello degens. I'm here to tell you about the crypto that's going to make us all rich, is going to screw over the big traders, and is going to allow us to use crypto to buy genetically engineered Doges to drive our Teslas on Mars. If you're only interested in the part where I talk about why Nano is currently on Cape Canaveral (🚀🚀🚀) counting down for take-off to Mars, skip to the bottom.
# 1. Nano? What is it? Why do I care?
You're on a crypto subreddit and don't know this? Nano is a cryptocurrency that boasts zero fees, instant transfers (sub-second), is green, and increases the size of your pp (or tiddies, for girls). It has a good claim to being better than Bitcoin but has 1/1500th its market cap. Daddy Elon tweeted about whatever has least error & latency will win - that shit is literally what Nano is.
# 2. Lol, you shill
I'm not a Nano shill, I just like to make money and Nano is money. However, Nano does have a lot of shills, enthusiasts, whatever you want to call them. Look at Litecoin. Look at BSV, look at BCH, etc. These coins have a market cap 8-18x higher than Nano does, but I'm pretty sure we all hear a lot more about Nano than about those 3 combined. I'm not kidding, r/cc needed to implement special rules just to deal with the amount of Nano comments and posts, /r/altstreetbets got overrun by Nano and had to reorganise their sub, on Twitter Nano is top 3 most talked about crypto. Every time I've posted about Nano, I've had a ton of comments from Nano lovers offering advice and help on what Nano is all about. These aren't bots, these are just ridiculous amounts of Nano-loving people.
Why do we care? Because if we try to pump another coin, we need to build from the ground up. When Nano isn't pumping, people talk about it way too much. When it pumps.. dear Daddy Elon.
# 3. Solid pumpamentals
We all love DOGE here. And at the risk of insulting his holy Dogeness (forever blessed may be his Dogeness), DOGE isn't actually the best in terms of being a crypto. The wallets are a bit clunky, transfers are sort of slow and cost fees, but the meme-ing power makes up for it. Nano can pump and pump and pump, and rather than it seeming like a joke people will think "well **** me, this shit actually works". Try it out once, and you're sold. It feels like the future of money. It feels like the money we would use on Mars. When you se... keep reading on reddit ➡
