I [19M] just started dating a girl I really, really like a couple months ago. I was hanging out with my friend (I'll call Joe] who is also 19, and has a crush on this girl "Sarah" [18F]. Anyway, we were all hanging out and there were no more seats in the car, so I suggested she sit on Joe's lap, but she chose to sit on mine, so I put a jacket on my lap so she wasn't directly on me. I felt really uncomfortable because she's just sitting her bony ass on me and I have a girlfriend, who she knows I have.
Anyway, when we stopped to get gas I made her sit on my friend's lap instead and she started to full on cry because I didn't want her to sit on me and I had put a jacket. I felt awkward and bad for my friend who likes her and she was just crying on his lap and said I was a jerk.
She ended up texting me saying we have to talk about us and I said, "what are you talking about 'us?'" and she said that I was giving her mixed signals because she thought there was something between us. I s... keep reading on reddit ➡
So ive been going to Dunkin Donuts almost every day now because of this new drink they have thay ive been in love with. So I went through like i normally did today and the girl who took my card is someone I see pretty much every time I go
Well when i got my drink and i was about ready to go but she stopped me and said "Hey i just wanted to let you know that everytime when you come through you make all of us smile." It caught me so off guard i said thank you and drove off because i started crying! Its been such a rough time recently with everything going on right now i just felt so happy that someone would say something like that.
Didnt wanna brag i just felt like sharing a moment that made me feel good :)
I don't know why, but I have always felt super uncomfortable around people that are crying. It makes my skin crawl. I don't judge them or look down on them for crying, but I immediately feel like I need to get away.
Thankfully this has never been an issue in our relationship. My wife doesn't cry often, and usually when she does it is quick and then it's over. Since she became pregnant this has changed in both respects. It feels like she cries at least once a day, and it usually lasts several minutes.
I have tried to intervene a few times, but when she is upset it does no good. The problem isn't really fixable in most cases, and trying to comfort her makes no difference. After that I started quietly leaving the room and letting her get it out of her system. She didn't say anything at first, but now she tells me that she feels so alone when I do this and like I don't care about her at all. She has openly wondered what I am going to do with our baby and her if she continues to feel dow... keep reading on reddit ➡
I had recently started reading more due to COVID lockdowns, so I decided that I would pick up Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. I have never read a book before that has made me cry or shed a tear, movies? Yes. TV shows? Yes. Never a book however.
My father had passed away due to heart complications a few months ago, and I have been trying to distract myself (I know that might not be the best way to go about it but I honestly don't know what I should do). Anyways, in the book when Billy was working on the second letter, he mentioned how Tralfamadorians look at time a certain way and that it was comparable to how us humans look at a mountain range. The quote goes:
>"The Tralfamadorians can look at all different moments just the way we look at a stretch of the Rocky Mountains, for instance. They can see how permanent all the moments are, and they can look at any moment that interests them. It is an illusion we have here on Earth that one moment follows another one, like beads o... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (27F) am currently living with my sister (32F) and her son (10M). In the past few days, my nephew has taken an interest in cooking. He recreates recipes he finds on YouTube. The thing is, I'm vegan, and nothing he's made has been vegan. Every night, he's asked me to try some, and every night I've told him "no thank you". My nephew is autistic, so he doesn't take it well. He goes into a full on meltdown over me not eating his food. I told him yesterday that I'd try a vegan dish if he made one. He told me that he "didn't know how to cook vegan". I told him "Just find a vegan recipe on YouTube and follow it like you did with the other recipes". For some reason, that response made him cry.
My sister pulled me aside this morning and told me that I need to suck up my pride and eat at least a bite of the non-vegan meals he makes. She's tired of dealing with the meltdowns. I told her that while I understand that she's fed up, instead of forcing me to eat non-vegan, she needs to talk to her... keep reading on reddit ➡
...in myself for not playing one before, if all Far Cry games are that good then I have been missing out!
Edit: the general opinion on FC5 is that its the worst one, if that's true then boy id love to see 3 (viewed as the best). And since a "few" of y'all have recommended FC3, I'll get it either when it's on sale or have $30 to spare :)
I recently bought Far Cry 3 from Steam and was pretty excited to play a classic game for the first time. Downloaded it during the night, installed it pretty quickly and thought I could get 2 or 3 hours of gameplay before going back to work.
But then it looked like I needed to login with an Uplay account. Ok, I don't recall having one, so let's just create it. I fill up the information and got hit by a "account creation unavailable" error screen.
Ok, that's bad, but maybe I have an account linked to an old email. I check and it's there. Login goes through. Finally. And then I'm hit with a "Connection Lost - Ubisoft service is currently unavailable".
And now I see myself going through multiple Youtube videos to see if this can be fixed by something in my end: checking proxy configurations, IPV6 and stuff like that.
How this became the norm? I'm spending more than an hour trying to play a single-player game from 8 years ago that I paid for because I can't login into U... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey everyone! As promised I wanted to provide an update from yesterday's Apollo AMA.
Long story short I work full time on making an awesome Reddit app for iOS called Apollo people ended up really liking and after over 2 million downloads I've been able to make it into my full time job. I love animals and our local SPCA shelter needed money due to an influx of orphaned kittens in these warm months (dubbed "kitten season"), made worse by the COVID pandemic and a decrease in adoptions and neutering, so the plan was to donate all my proceeds from the app for the day to the SPCA. So anyone who was interested in the Pro unlock in app could get the it AND support a good cause!
Well yesterday blew away my wildest expectations. Seriously. To be clear I don't even make in the planetary orbit of this on a daily basis, the AMA and support around the fundraiser amplifies it to a crazy extent and a lo... keep reading on reddit ➡
My MIL and SIL (18f) were visiting us two days back. My husband (30m) and (30f) have a 3 year old son, S. SIL asked me if she could take S out to our lawn. I agreed and told her that if he gets fussy, bring him inside at once.
After some time, husband decides to check up on S. He goes out and few moments later, I hear some shouting. I rush outside and see my husband desperately trying to calm S, who was crying and was very agitated, and SIL standing there looking nonchalant.
Apparently, SIL tried to make S say her name, Jeaneane. Whenever S tried saying her name, it came out as ‘Genie’. I don’t know the details and what exactly she said to him, but when my husband got there, S was already a crying mess. When he asked about what happened, SIL tried blaming my poor child saying that he’s deliberately pronouncing her name wrong when he can easily pronounce my husband’s or my name perfectly.
This is when MIL and I reached the scene. Husband was still trying to calm S down, who was b... keep reading on reddit ➡
