Hedgefund whales are spreading disinfo saying Friday is make-or-break for $GME. Call options expiring ITM on Friday will drive the price up if levels are maintained, but may not trigger the short squeeze.
It may be Friday, but it could be next week the we see the real squeeze.
#DON'T PANIC IF THE SQUEEZE DOESN'T HAPPEN FRIDAY.
It's not guaranteed to. The only thing that is guaranteed mathematically is that the shorts will have to cover at some point in the future. They are trying to get enough people hooked on the false expectation of Friday so that if/when it doesn't happen, enough will sell out of panic/despair. DON'T BE THAT PERSON.
#WE LIKE THE STOCK
#KEEP HOLDING UNTIL THEY FEEL THE PAIN, WHETHER THAT'S FRIDAY OR NEXT WEEK

I am trying to link back to my original post, but I can’t figure it out on mobile — please someone help.
EDIT: I figured it out, that ass to the dozen or so people who posted links : )
Thanks for all the comments, not to mention all of the perspectives I definitely did not consider.
A few clarifications:
I haven’t dated since before dating apps were a thing and I was married for 7 years so please give me some grace for being Very Bad At This.
We went on an outdoor date (a walk on the boardwalk near where we live) and didn’t so much as hug. Wore masks anytime we were close to other people (turns out not many people walk outside at night when it’s 40 degrees, though).
Both he and I have kids, so the “single mom, run for the hills” thing goes both way, right?
My intended text wasn’t the exact phrase “thanks, you’re great” — I think that would be super rude! I would have been kind and appropriate (had I not instead just written “that ass” but, here we are.)
No, I don’t know why my phone autocorrected to “that ass.” I am glad it makes people think I have a much more interesting life and Google search history than I do!
Finally, the update:
He sent me back a link to the music video for “Mr. Jones.” I do not know if this was also an accidental text or if I’m missing some symbolism here. Counting Crows fans, please advise.
We then chatted about the Cleveland Browns as if nothing weird had happened.
In any case, I decided the universe (and Reddit) was facilitating enough rom-com vibes (and “don’t be so quick to judge” comments) that I might as well go on one more date with a nice, friendly dude, with, for what it’s worth, a pretty decent butt.
Tl;dr I am seeing that ass again.
Reason for my lack of income is that I'm a full-time grad school student. I'm happy to pay the bill if I pick a manageable location, but I've been finding myself in situations where I'll be out with a girl who works in finance/tech at pricier spots. In situations like this, would it be rude to split the bill? If I ask the girl out, I'll pick a spot I know I'll be able to pay at, but what about situations where the girl suggests the place? I'm not sure if this is relevant but I am 22 and the girls I go out with are around there too, usually in their first year of having a job. I'm usually of the mindset that I should always pay (or make the attempt to pay) on a first date, especially if I'm the one who initiated.
I've been reading a few of the various comments on the threads centred around change the date, and I've seen a lack of indigenous voices in the discussion. Just thought I'd ad my voice in.
A bit of background, I'm from the NT. I work in Indigenous health, I've been out to the communities, I've literally been hands on dealing with the appalling health conditions our people face. I have a lot of indigenous friends working in a lot of different areas of areas, from Education, Youth crime, Child protection, Employment etc.
Now onto my opinion on the date. I want it changed.
So just some counters to some of the most common comments I've been seeing on this subject.
'It changes nothing to approve the conditions of Indigenous people'- Yes, but no one is saying it will. No one believes it's a magic bullet to fixing problem. It is a Symbolic gesture. And Symbolism is a powerful thing. The fact that so many people are so passionate about NOT changing the date shows the power of these Symbolic Gestures. Call it virtue signalling if you want, but how is it any different to ANZAC day, or showing support for Farmers in drought or Firefighters in Bushfires.
'People should be focusing on fixing indigenous issues instead of worrying about the date'- Many people who do push for the change of date do do a lot of work in trying to fix the issues. Me personally, for 365 days a year I'm working on helping my peoples problems. For 2-3 days a year im also pushing a date change. A lot of people are doing work constantly in indigenous health, education, advocating for better conditions, reform in child protection, pushing for better employment opportunities for our people. You just don't see it because the only time you notice indigenous issues/advocacy is when its indigenous people are pushing for something that effects you, changing the date of your holiday. It's not that people aren't doing anything to improve indigenous lives, its that you don't notice it.
'I asked my indigenous friend/ ask the indigenous people in x place if they want the date changed and they said NO'- While I don't doubt there's indigenous people that don't care about the date change, I've found that the overwhelming majority do. The thing is, when you ask an indigenous person that question to them its a loaded question. We can't always speak freely. We have to consider the consequences of what that may bring. We don't want to be seen as 'uppity'. If we are the only indigenous person in a workplace w... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (32F) went on my first date in nearly a year last night. We met on a dating app. He (33M) was pleasant and polite, but for me, there was no romantic feelings, and while I had a nice time, I wasn’t interested in seeing him again. We parted ways with a smile and texted each other that we got home safely. I went to bed.
This morning, he sent me a somewhat lengthy text about how he had a wonderful time, felt a lot of chemistry, and couldn’t wait to hang out again. I was hesitant on the best way to respond so I sat on it for a while. Eventually, in the middle of unloading groceries and wrangling my toddler, I decided I was being a jerk by not replying, and grabbed my phone to bite the bullet and send a “thanks, you’re great, but not the one for me”-esque message.
Except instead, I typed what I thought was “thanks” and hit send accidentally. That would have been fixable. But it didn’t say “thanks,” as it turns out. My phone instead autocorrected my message to “that ass.”
So I’ve now sent this dude I meant to let down gently a text message aggressively complimenting his butt.
It’s been 15 minutes, he has not yet responded and it’s been too long for me to quickly own the screw-up. So here I sit.
Tl; dr I complimented a guy’s ass instead of saying I don’t want to go out with him again.
I got into a conversation online with a guy and he asked me out for a date to a bar. I agreed under specific terms: it had to be a bar that was following social distancing, outdoor seating with spread out tables, and I wanted to be as far away from anyone else as humanly possible. All seemed fine, he chose the bar as I'm not familiar to the area, I checked online and saw they had a huge outdoor area (think backyard sized) with picnic tables far apart from each other.
Cue to date night, I get to the bar masked up and he approaches me and goes in for a hug. I backup a few steps and remind him I wanted distance. He seemed disappointed but listened (a little begrudgingly). His mask wasn't all the way over his nose and any attraction I'd had for him basically died right away. We go around the side of the bar to the back and the back area is PACKED. At least 50 people, all in large groups, no one wearing masks. I immediately stop and ask him if he knows somewhere else we can go because I'm not comfortable going anywhere near that cesspool of virus potential.
He tells me I'm being paranoid and I need to loosen up, it's not cute to guys for a girl to be so uptight. COVID isn't a big deal anyway blah blah blah. I immediately went off (respectfully, wasn't trying to get murdered) and told him about how I had gotten the virus back in March, how painful it was, how scared I had been, how depressing and mentally taxing quarantine had been. I then told him if I couldn't trust him to protect myself, himself, and others from the virus, how could I trust being around him in general? How do I know if we decided to have sex at some point he wouldn't just slip the condom off because there's 'only x chance of getting this STI/STD and it's treatable so what's the big deal'.
Long story short I left and went home and had ice cream. People, being an idiot during a pandemic isn't hot. Of anything it's probably one of my biggest turn offs now. Happily single for the duration of this pandemic it seems.
Edit; holy shit this blew up overnight. To the people offering support thank you, I really appreciate it. To the people saying I'm virtue signalling, or talking about how I shouldn't have even left my house in the first place, the only reason I ever even agreed to go was because
A. At that time in the area we were living in our cases were at a record low, this was not recent during a spike
B. It is possible to safely interact with new people following CDC guidelines. The reaso... keep reading on reddit ➡
Is that too hard to ask? Every date I’ve been on there was always the need for either a kiss or sex and that’s not what I’m looking for. Maybe I’m just old fashioned but I want to save those moments for when I’m actually into the person and have it be a special moment or have it feel right. I’m not trying to bash the people who do want a kiss or have sex on the first date but that just isn’t for me. I feel like I’m never going to meet someone who feels the same way. Anyways that’s my little rant for today. Also just wondering if there are people like me that think this way or not.
Hi all, I feel like it's time to share my opinions and thoughts after letting this subreddit cooldown for sometime. Around February of last year, I began work on a massive passion project developing https://NETRUNNER2077.net after following this title and being a massive fan of CD Projekt Red from the original Witcher title. When they announced Cyberpunk 2077 would be their next IP I was immensely excited as I'm a huge Cyberpunk genre nerd in all forms from art, movies, anime, philosophies, books, cultural significance and relation, aesthetics and more. So having my all time favorite game company work on a huge open world Cyberpunk "RPG" instantly generated immediate interest.
Now where to even begin?
Please note, I've yet to purposely "finish" Cyberpunk 2077 in hopes of CD Projekt Red making a strong come back later on in the future, and hopes that they'll eventually release a REDKit for modders in order to create some incredible work and help flesh the game world out. I have put around close to 200 hours into Cyberpunk 2077 exploring the different Life Paths and their effects on the world. Lots of walking, No fast travel and tons of time lost in an attempt to "Immerse" myself in the experience. I refused to finish Cyberpunk 2077's Main Story for several reasons. The largest being I'm typically against playing titles that are obviously not complete. On top of that, I've invested so much time and effort into researching, designing, learning web design and working towards building an awesome platform in order to properly cover Cyberpunk 2077 with a safe bet of thinking "This couldn't possibly be bad" only to coming around to reality very shortly after and that this title truly needed ATLEAST another year of development time.
There are aspects of Cyberpunk 2077 that are, in my opinion, worthy of putting it in the all time legendary category of games. Then.. other parts that make games from even 20 years ago look superior. It's a very "unbalanced" experience. So much that it takes the top spot for me personally. My experience of Cyberpunk 2077 is that it feels unfinished and some what rushed in many areas, if that isn't obvious enough already. But the thing is, as many of you probably already know, it just isn't bugs. Features, Content, Weapons, Immersive Elements, AI, RPG Elements and Game Design Systems are flat out missing or just straight up broken entirely.
Here are just a few of the elements that I have a problem wit... keep reading on reddit ➡
I gave in and pulled for her. Saw way too many youtube videos. Not only that, so many variations of her whether its Whales or F2P and in all of them its extremely evident to anyone that understands even the bare basics of the game. Ganyu is broken as all hell. Ever since I pulled her, I have almost doubled my hunting success. Seriously, it used to take skill to hit BOTH cranes before they flew off, now I can get both of them and any bystanders. Never before have I went to boar territory and walked away with anything more than 6 steaks. Today I walked off with a WHOPPING 16 steaks. Ganyu is the very definition of P2W power creep and I fear Genshin is going to only go downhill from here.
My late wife passed away about a year ago. We were together 10 years but not married until she became sick about a year before that. She has a daughter Beth who is 19 years old. Beth is taking college classes but they are 100% online so she has stayed at “home” which is my house. I’ve owned this before my wife moved in so it was never technically shared.
I’ve wanted to be supportive of Beth but don’t want her here indefinitely or until she’s done with college. That’s 3 more years and it makes dating super awkward. I had a lady friend over after a dinner date last week and she was snarky towards her and later told me I’m moving on too fast. I tried to have an honest talk about being ready to move on and date others but she kept calling me an asshole. Im just ready to move on with my life but her presence is making that difficult.
I told her I want her to move out at the end of this next semester which would be the end of May, so 5 full months to find a place. She flipped out and told me I’m abandoning her “to get laid”. This isn’t really the case I just want to move on to my life and don’t want to live with a 19 year old any longer. She’s still mad at me and is making living in my own home awkward. But she claims she can’t afford to go anywhere else.
Edit: I did not raise or adopt Beth. My wife was VERY clear that she was not looking for a replacement father for her. Beth never lived with me until 2 years ago when she was almost 18 when her mom moved in with me due to her being sick and needing more attention. I never played a fatherly role in her life.
Before moving in She and her mom moved every few years for a while. Beth didn’t move in til her senior year of high school because her mom needed my help. Obviously couldn’t move the mom in without the daughter.
Before giving her notice to leave tried to have a talk about ground rules for staying here mostly including being polite to any guests of mine. She then went off on me for moving on with my life. That is when I made my decision.
It wasn’t exactly your “traditional” marriage. Before getting sick my late wife never wanted to get married because her parents had such a nasty one and her parents have been divorced a combined 4 times. I’m not religious so never felt a need to get married either. When she got sick we realized her insurance was terrible while mine through work is much better. So it was a practical decision to get married so she could be added to mine. Even then, she affirmed I wa... keep reading on reddit ➡
I haven't dated since before the pandemic started and I think I've forgotten how navigate this shitty dating world. I also have big problems being assertive.
I don't go to men's places on first dates, that's always been my rule. He counters with the fact that everything is closed where we live (it is) and there's nothing else to do (he's right.) I counter with a walk outdoors (although it's freezing here, would probably be more pain than pleasure.) Perhaps we could channel our inner teenager and have a parking lot coffee. He's not interested.
We've basically mutually ghosted and I'm wondering if I did the right thing. He kept asking, I kept saying no. He sprinkled sexual innuendo throughout our text convos and feel like going to his place would just be uncomfortable and awkward because I had no intention on sleeping with him. Nevermind the fact that he could be a serial killer (I very much doubt it, but you can never be too careful.)
I think I'm just going to give up on dating until the warmer weather hits.
Note: I am mostly summarizing the aggregate of explanations currently floating around about the 1/29/21 option expiry date. I don't claim any knowledge. This is not investment advice. Do your own research, don't invest what you can't afford to lose, and if something feels wrong it probably is.
TL;DR: This isn't about options (yet), it's about shares, and Institutional Investors are playing a dangerous game by convincing us (some of y'all have bought in without realizing it) that a magical short squeeze has some 3-day time limit, that Friday is somehow the end game, and are hoping that when investors don't see a $5,000 short squeeze by next week they will fold and take their gains at a "reasonable" double-digit stock price. Don't believe them. They can survive through mid-late February before the true short squeeze smashes upward. And I'll be ready. I like this stock and believe in it's long term potential, and I think it's undervalued.
THESIS: If institutional investors can (1) convince retail investors to sell stock at low prices and (2) convince their lenders to wait, then the 0.01% get richer.
JUSTIFICATION: There is so much public sentiment (passion, enthusiasm, excitement, anger, whatever) surrounding short (~1 day) price movements*, and Friday's expiring options (these are also end of month contracts), that it seems like big clever money may be trying to artificially create a sort of bear trap for shareholders.
Whatever happens in the next week or so (crest to $700? crash to $60?) almost means nothing in the long term, but could fool investors into giving these guys CHEAP ways out of their 140% float short interest positions. Remember, these are people who have been dumping tons of money for a long time, shorting the stock when it was in the single digits. They've been hoping for a GameStop bankruptcy, and manufacturing one as best they can.
IT'S DIFFERENT THIS TIME: Remember the VW infinite squeeze, where we saw weeks of crazy price movement before the actual peak. And that is a mild case, as most of the shares were held by an entity with legal, competitive, and strategic reasons and obligations forcing them to hold shares and artificially reducing the float, or available shares for trading. This reduced supply caused the short squeeze.
However, this time around we've got a huge short interest, much much larger by comparison than that from VW's 2008 peak, to the tune of **140% of shares available for tradi... keep reading on reddit ➡
2012, I was very naïve about men, but through a mutual friend, I managed to snag me a very fit single dad who was well out of my league. He was an officer, a married-to-the-job type of guy who had sole custody of his 7/yo daughter. He would gush about her constantly and I, being the fence-sitter I was, absolutely melted. We started dating casually, nothing official and I figured he would do the typical overprotective parent thing and not actually introduce me to his kid until waaaaay later.
Second date, dinner at his place with DD. Two weeks later, he texts me with the audacity to ask, “Hey. Working late. Do you mind picking up DD from school. Maybe swing my McDonalds for dinner. She has a key.”
I was really weirded out by it. We had only gone on a handful of dates, but he trusted me to babysit and babysit I did! Again, the guy was out of my league and I felt lucky he even showed an interest in me. After that first text, I got other texts pushing more boundaries; pick up some groceries, do some dishes, etc. I hated it, but was hoping it was just a temporary hitch in the relationship and not a preview of things to come (ha!).
Everything came to a head when I was babysitting at his house and I got a text at 7:50pm, “Hey. I’m not gonna be done with work until late. Could you give DD a bath and put her to bed for me? Pleeeease? :kissy face: ” I was floored. Here I was, across town, alone in another man’s house taking care of a child I barely knew. My fault for assuming a cop would have better protective instincts. I stood in the kitchen dumbfounded and cried. I hated how I felt. Used and unspecial. Trapped and overburdened. I think that night was the point in my motherhood journey when I realized I didn’t actually want to be a mother.
He came home at 2am. Maybe he was cheating, maybe he was hanging out with his bros, maybe he really was just working, but it didn’t matter. I ended our little fling the next day. He took it harder than I thought, claiming that he was really starting to fall for me, “And what about DD!? She’s really bonded with you!” I almost fell for it, but then realized the only reason he liked me so much was because I was such a pushover. Who wouldn’t love to have an oncall free babysitter you could occasionally sleep with? Our entire interlude lasted 1 month. ONE MONTH is all it took for this guy to promote me to step-mom status. So, (no pun intended) bullet dodged.
Morale of the story: Don’t even casually date si... keep reading on reddit ➡
Unless I am missing something, they do not show what day they are actually leaving, would love to see this as I should not have to search for it online.
So, I had been talking to a guy on Tinder since November 2020 and I took my time to get to know him before meeting him. He sent me plenty of pics and we got along quite well. Today, I finally decided to meet him and found out that he couldn't walk because of a spinal cord injury he suffered a few years ago. He never told me that before and none of his pictures revealed that either.
Initially, I stayed quiet but then he asked me what I think about him. I really felt sorry for him but I said he should've told me before that he's wheelchair bound because I didn't see that in any of his pictures.
In response, he got very, very emotional and said that I am a "typical, shallow woman who would prioritize physical traits over everything else."
I kept my cool and tried explaining that I didn't have a problem with his physical appearance but it was the concealment of the truth which I didn't appreciate.
But he got more and more emotional, so I decided to leave after almost an hour. We were in a restaurant and I honestly didn't know how to manage the situation as he was on the verge of crying. I even said we should order coffee and talk about something else but he couldn't control his emotions.
Now I feel extremely guilty, sad, and also angry about it. Do you all think I was being shallow and should have stayed quiet?
Should I write him an apology?
I (female) was in a sexless marriage and got divorced. Through therapy I’ve learned that I really do value sex and physical intimacy in a relationship.
I went on a date a few months ago and really hit it off with this guy. The sex was amazing and we had a lot in common. We went on about 6 more dates and then he said he wasn’t interested in a serious relationship and stopped contacting me.
I was shocked! Everything was going well. Why would he just end it!?
My friends have said that he probably didn’t respect me because we slept together on the first date. As in maybe he thought this was more of a FWB situation.
So I want to know: Does having sex on the first date really change your opinion of someone?
Sex is important to me! I don’t really want to waste my time with someone who isn’t willing/able to satisfy me. What do you guys think?
My husband (24M) and I (24F) haven't been suffering from the pandemic too much, but we've missed our friends. One couple, "May" (22F) and "April" (26F) seem to have been missing us too. May has constantly been texting me that they're bored and miss us, so we decided to self-quarantine for two weeks, on both sides, to have a double date.
It was tense from the beginning. Apparently May had gotten bleach on April's expensive dress, which she kept making passive-aggressive remarks about. I thought it was a non-issue until April spilled her wine all over May's dress, and when I went to help her clean it, she said April was trying to "get even."
Everything calmed down for a good hour until April started talking about their sex life and how May never puts out (so humiliating), and May says to my husband, "I bet you never have that problem," and I was in shock. April laughed it off before telling us what a "slut" May is. She kept insulting her even though my husband and I were telling her to stop, and eventually May just started crying.
It got too intense for me and I had to go outside. My husband followed me out and we just ended up driving off. Last night, he told me how guilty he felt just leaving May there to be insulted instead of really doing anything about it, but we both felt like we needed to remove ourselves from the entire situation. April has texted me since saying everything is fine and the quarantine has really been getting to them, but they worked it out. I still feel guilty for leaving, and so does my husband. I honestly feel like I abandoned May and there's a part of me that thinks I did it because she hit on my husband, which makes me feel so petty and disgusting. I tried to apologize but she won't answer my calls or text me back. AITA?
EDIT: I'm meeting up with May today. She texted me saying she's fine but I think I should still see her.
Sorry for the length and formatting. On mobile.
TLDR; I ignored the warning of a friend about a guy who asked me out, I lived to regret it
This happened in 2008, shortly after I got stationed in South Korea (Republic of Korea, officially.)
I was a lowly private, albeit a reasonably attractive woman in my early twenties. I was out one night with some friends, when a tall, funny redhead guy, who happened to be one of my friend's soldiers, asked to take me out to dinner.
Friend told me it was a bad idea. I asked why, but he wouldn't give me details. My exact words were "what's the worst that could happen, I get a free meal and we don't click?"
As you may have guessed, this was not, in fact, the worst that could happen.
The following evening, we were supposed to meet at the taxi stand outside post, but he was late. He calls to tell me he's at the ATM and ask if I have cash for the taxi. Not a great start, but, sure, I can spring for the taxi.
He gets to the taxi stand, we ask the Korean taxi driver, in our mash of Korean and English, to take us to the nearby Air Force base, which houses the only Chili's on the peninsula. Something to the effect of "Adishe, Osan ka-ju-sai-oh" (Sir, take us to Osan, please.)
We're going through back roads, and I ask what he thinks of Korea so far. He starts going off on a rant about how "these people don't even speak English" and I must have looked at him like he had lost his mind. As I open my mouth to speak, a little boy loses his ball and runs into the street to get it. This set Red off all over again, talking about "these people have no common sense!" and just really racist, weird and out of touch comments.
When he finally takes a breath, I remind him that we're in their country, not the other way around, and that everyone's been really respectful, so I'm not sure what his problem was in the first place. He gets mad, and puts his headphones on, not saying another word to me the whole way to Osan.
When we finally pull up to Osan Air Force Base, I lean forward to pay the driver, and he says, in perfect English with an American accent "thank you, ma'am, that will be X amount of wan." and I could feel the blood rush to my face. Red does a double take at this man's English and darts out of the cab. I apologize profusely, and the driver reminds me he speaks English, tells me he spent ten years in Chicago, and that he knows I wasn't the one being awful. I tipped him as well as I could, thanked him, and apologized... keep reading on reddit ➡

My post got a lot of attention and there have been some developments so I thought people might be interested. I accept some blame in the situation but there were also a lot of details I didn’t have room for.
Since this post, Beth and I had some long conversations about the near future. Beth was mad for a couple days but yesterday came to talk to me and told me she realizes I’ve done a lot for her and wanted to thank me but also acknowledged it’s probably best for both of us to move on. She also recognized I have a right to move on at my own pace and apologized for lashing out at me.
One of her best friends is looking to get her own place as well so they will be looking into getting an apartment together, either by this summer or sooner. While we’re not religious, as a holiday gift I told her I will pay her entire security deposit when she finds her place. Not entirely sure if we will keep in touch much after she moves out but I’m glad we’ve come to an agreement that will allow both of us to move on without resentment towards each other.
Thought some people might be interested due to the passionate responses I got.
I ain’t gay but I did just take my homeboy out for a night on the town. Coffee, museum, planetarium, pizza, cigs, and home before 8:00. It was only whenever I told my sister about it my day that she thought I was talking about a girl. Fuck it I might do it again with a girl. Like a date template. Just had to tell someone cause I’m never gonna mention tonight to anyone again LOL
Fun chat. No comments constitute investment advice.
Yesterday I went on my first date in my entire life, and it sucked, in a good way. We matched on tinder and started talking and she seemed like a really cool person. We talked to each other on the phone for several hours and all was good. (I had crazy anxiety calling her.) Looking back there were some red flags I looked over but oh well. This lead to us going to hang out the next day.
First I would like to give you some background as to who I am and why I've never been on a date. The past three years I have become a completely different person. Looking back I was a socially anxious train wreck and struggled with talking with people. That stemmed from severely low confidence, anxiety, self image problems and depression. My self image problem has mainly gone away after hitting the gym routinely for the past three years, and several girls have sorta thrown themselves at me at my previous job. ( Which is another awkward story) Mainly in the past year or so I have become so much better at talking to people and have become a social butterfly in most circumstances. I have developed a larger friend group, with an inner circle of closer friends that I would do anything for. Ive learned how to stop giving a crap what people think of me for the most part, and have learned how to influence people to like me as a person. I do still struggle with self hate and slight depression and can go up to a week without talking to anybody easily, which creates some issues with friendships but they seem to not mind too much.
When it comes to relationships I am absolutely horrible. Ive never even kissed anybody because I struggle with people touching me and getting intimate in any way possible. A part of me finds people disgusting and I don't really know why, I have a very particular preference on who I find attractive. I do want a intimate relationship with someone, which lead me to downloading tinder... I want to preference, the main reason I went on the date was to get over my fear of dating and experience what its like to date someone. I kinda already knew it wasn't going to work out because she's a very, very dependent person and I am a very, very independent person. Im not looking for a hook up and don't want to waste my time. We decided to meet and go get food and hang out.
I pull up to her and see her get out of her car and she looks nothing like her profile pictures and my heart sinks. She's bigger than her profile pictures suggest and looks different all around. At... keep reading on reddit ➡
