Age gaps of 8 or even 12 years are actually fairly common between men in their mid 30s and women in their mid 20s. And the controversy around it never comes from those in the relationships themselves, as those in the relationships know why they are in them and want to be in them.
And before you say 'a 22-25 year old woman doesn't know that she's being manipulated' or some such nonsense, just consider how infantilizing and insulting that is to women in their early 20s
No, the reasons a somewhat younger woman would be attracted to a still young but more established man, and why he would also be more attracted to her than someone his own age, are very deep and go back hundreds of thousands or even millions of years. Furthermore, 'most' people instinctively understand these reasons.. not to mention that they are thoroughly understood and documented by science, and backed up by large scale behavioral data collected through dating apps and online activity.
In fact, it's onl... keep reading on reddit ➡
After hearing many many bears saying that various levels would likely provide resistance to the rally, after considering myself to sell a portion of my portfolio after the rally went beyond 2,900, the S&P 500 is now positive for the year, even excluding dividends.
A 5% rally from here would take it to all time highs.
EDIT: This is only PRICE return, total return would also include the almost 1% in dividends received/accrued for 2020.
My abortion isn't for a couple of days yet but the bio father and his toxic family have been getting their friends and church people (I don't know what the collective term for people who go to their church is lol) to send me messages harassing me to try and convince me to continue with the pregnancy and give the bio father's mother the baby. I'm not putting my body through hell just to give these horrible people the baby and I also do not care about their opinions so I eventually just told them I'd already had the abortion and the harassment pretty much ended (still get a couple of "you'll burn in hell"s and things lol).
I'm baffled by the number of times guys have told me they don't have a condom with them. Are you not expecting to have sex? Are you expecting to have unprotected sex?
Common sense says if I don't know your last name, you're not fucking me bareback. I always have condoms in my purse (in a metal case so they don't get messed up). But every guy has their favorite brand, so it's not always the ones they are used to. I went into a sex shop the other day and asked if they sold assorted size condom packs and the dude looked at me with a look of total confusion and said no girl had ever come in looking for that.
EDIT: Most of these are people I've met online. I'm pretty forward about the fact that I'm "not looking for anything serious".
I'm sure anyone who uses Twitter frequently has already seen the thread. There was a woman who did OnlyFans that said that men who wouldn't date sex workers were insecure. All-over Twitter there is this sentiment that ridicules men that are not comfortable dating sex workers.
I do not want to date a woman that is a sex worker period. I am not sexist for not wanting a woman that has an OnlyFans or does sex work. I'm sure many women would also agree that they would be uncomfortable dating a male sex worker as well. If I am in a relationship, I do not want my partner to be intimate with someone else, and I don't think that's too much to ask for. I also do not feel comfortable with my partner displaying nude for everyone to see online. If that makes me sexist, evil or too demanding, than so be it
Part of this was my fault, for if I had done what normally do we would never have went out in the first place.
We got coffee in the drive thru and I parked the car while I looked up a near by park for us to take a walk. Here’s where I fucked up. I hung up my handicapped parking permit. You said: “Why do you have that?” I looked at you funny and said: “Because I have a disability.”
I could see the change in your body language the moment I finished my sentence, though you never said anything. We still went for that walk in the the park, then about a half hour in you got a call from your step mom claiming she needed you home to babysit. I was a little skeptical given your reaction to my news and the fact that when we were walking you were on your phone a lot I thought it was a friend calling to bail you out.
However you said she does this all the time and you didn’t understand why she didn’t tell you about it before you left to spend time with me. You also said you wanted to keep our... keep reading on reddit ➡
Last week I posted on my regular account about date ideas for the girl I was seeing who's in a wheelchair. The post was capped off at 1000 upvotes, so I thought I'd post an update on a throwaway account, as a few people asked and wanted to know how it all went.
First I would like to say thank you to all the wonderful people who commented and gave me so many great ideas, especially the one who suggested the 4wheeler, as that was hilarious. However, for the many people who thought it was a fantastic idea to pm me unsolicited sex advice, first off, I'm concerned for your reading level as I pretty clearly stated we were both women. Second of all, whoever you are who suggested that thing with the three chairs, I... I can never unread that.
I've started dating this amazing girl (both of us F20's) who happens to be in a wheelchair. I don't know any other wheelchair users so my experience is pretty limited in this regard. Recently as the world has begun opening up... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (m,23) have zero tolerance for people who are late. I have been dating a girl (22) for a few months now. She is always late, usually 5-10minutes but sometimes 15-20minutes. It drives me nuts but I dont say much. Yesterday we had a date, she did not show up I was calling her but she was not picking up the phone. After a while I decided to go back home. After 50mins she calls me and says she went to the beauty salon to get her hair done so thats why she was not able to pick up the phone and she was late. She went really mad when told her that I already left. She called me AH, because she spent all the time to look beautiful to me but I did not wait and just left. So, AITA here?
Edit: many people think that I have been ghosting her. Just to clarify, when she called me after 50mins I told her that she cant be this disrespectful to me and I dont ever wanna meet her again. But after that, we kept calling and texting non stop. Thats why I blocked her number
Regardless if you think the delay was warranted or not the players should be given a date for when Season 4 will start. Indefinitely is a poor answer
The situation in the U.S. is unlikely to be fixed in the near future so I doubt the plan is to release it months from now. Even a rough time frame would be helpful like "sometime next week or in 2 weeks or next month"
Honestly I get why you delayed the Season but the delay happening within 24 hours of it due to launch is like having to eat shit sandwich. It might have been better to say your postponing the update till next week. I think we all could have lived with that but the silence and uncertainty is deafening
This is from a press release on 29th May
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on 17 September 2020 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. By the end of the year the game will also make its debut on Google Stadia. Further information can be found on the game’s official website and on its Facebook and Twitter profiles.
Yesterday my girlfriend asks me for my opinion as a man in his twenties, why her best friend Katy, a women in her twenties, is never approached or asked out. I guess they had been talking recently and my girlfriend doesn’t understand why Katy can’t get a date but wants to give her advice. We aren’t in lockdown anymore in our country by the way.
Her reasoning is that Katy is very pretty, I would say 8/10, has a really nice personality and a great career. I’ve hung out with her quite a bit since I started dating GF and completely agree with her that Katy is a catch for sure.
My opinion, which I think is pretty spot on, is that despite all those things, Katy is super intimidating. She is like 6 feet tall, fit and is in the military. I think she is a Major or something. When she isn’t smiling or laughing she has this super intense resting face where she just looks like you shouldn’t mess with her.

I found ticks in the files, and converted them to Z time:
637265916000000000 = June 1st, 12:00am PST
Recently found some files relating to season dates (acts) and when they will release!!! Inside files I found some game data string that were encrypted in ticks, so I extracted them and converted them and they revealed actual dates!!! This is a huge find!!!!
Episode 1 Season Run Dates:
Act 1: June 1st - August 4th
Act 2: August 4th - October 13th
Act 3: October 13th - January 12th (2021)
All new Acts's (seasons) release at midnight (region locked updates) on the day of the season start in this time clock. These dates are what is currently in the files, and I have no doubt that they might change. But it looks like the season is going to end August 4th!
January 12 is when Act 3 ends, so I'm guessing we could see Episode 2 come then? If so the planned date for episode 2 to come out is January 12, 2021!
Interesting to see what an episode update would be. New Act's should already br... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve literally only encountered this as something talked about by guys in the internet and I’m shocked anyone would think it’s a widespread thing. I’ve got a lot of female friends and have never heard any of them use that as a standard in dating. I mean logically why would they, most men (like 85%) would be eliminated from the dating pool if someone did hold that. Also it’s genuinely very hard to guess what someone’s height is, personally I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between 5ft 10 and 6ft.
I have heard girls say they have a preference towards dating a guy who’s taller than them, but when the average female height is like 5 ft 4, that really doesn’t disqualify many guys at all. Even then there’s a decent amount of girls who don’t mind dating shorter guys, myself included.
Conclusion - if you’re not incredibly short but complain that you can’t get a date because of your height, consider the fact that it might just be you.
Ich fang einfach mal an:
Geschrieben und Treffen ausgemacht, auf dem Foto sah sie gar nicht so schlecht aus (war wohl n altes Bild) Naja als ich in ihrem Ort abends ankam, war es am regnen. Bin recht langsam gefahren und auf der Suche nach einem Parkplatz. Als ich bei ihr um die Ecke kam, stand sie schon draussen.
War mir erst nicht sicher, denn was ich sah lies meinen Wagen absaufen. Ok war wohl mit dem Fuß abgerutscht. Da stand sie nun 1,62 knallrote Haare und locker über 100kg.
Dachte mir oh man was machst du jetzt, sie hat dich gesehen. Naja also ausgestiegen und begrüßt, sind dann in ihre Wohnung. Da dachte ich schon mich trifft der Schlag, also bin Nichtraucher und hab nix dagegen wenn wer raucht aber das sprengt echt alles, die Bude hat so verraucht gestunken als wenn der Begriff lüften fremd wäre und Philipp Morris selbst diese Wohnung als Zentrallager benutzt....sind dann so durch den Flur und da hörte ich schon irgendwelche Geräusche, sie meinte oh das ist meine Mitbewohne... keep reading on reddit ➡
My (34F) boyfriend (35M) and I have been having a really rocky time in the relationship. I planned a nice treat for a picnic date that involved champagne and a spread of really nice food— as in, I spent an ungodly amount on cheese and charcuterie for us to enjoy.
He said that he would probably give some of it to his friends after because there was a lot there and I agreed so it wouldn’t go to waste.
However, he cut it up and planned on having it with his friends before we had the date. I said it was a mean thing to do and he said I was overreacting.
I usually pay for our groceries and this week, he contributed so he could get beers for his friends. He asked if I would respond the same way about the beer if he didn’t give money and I said, “fucking duh,” because I’m not here to pay for his friends.
I wouldn’t be as upset if he shared it after we had our time, but it feels like a dick move. AITA for getting mad or am I just being too sensitive?

I’ve (35F) been following this sub since 2017 after I ended a 12 year LTR to get a feel for dating and mentally prepare myself. Started using OLD about 6 months ago. One thing I’ve read about a ton on here is regarding the chemistry on first dates and listening to your gut. It seems like an important thing everyone looks for, but I’m experiencing something different and doubting myself so I’m looking for perspective.
Backstory: in early March I met someone (37M) on an app that lives in my neighborhood. Let’s call him Rogers. The date was fine. He was quiet and there were a few awkward pauses (I was nervous so that was partially on me) but the overall conversation was good and we had a lot of common interests. It lasted about 2 hours and we agreed to stay in touch.
A few days later, I went on a date with another man who I’ll call Stark (38M). This date was much different than the one with Rogers. Sparks were flying. We flirted heavily, laughed a ton and stayed out late for a total of... keep reading on reddit ➡
Was on a date with a stunning girl, but turned out to be one of those people who are addicted to their phones.
Called her out on it in a playful manner about her checking Instagram with me sitting right in front of her and she got super defensive about it (like way too much for what was said) and sat in silence for about 30 seconds, to which I stood up, took my jacket and said "well lovely to meet you but ive got to bounce"
What's going to happen when Naxx gets a release date and non-casters are going to need to flask as well? I've never even heard of black lotus going for 300g on any private servers I've played on and we're still only in BWL. At this rate we could see lotus spike up to as much as 500g on some servers, if not more, by the time naxx comes out
Im sitting on a stack of lotus and I've always been a staunch supporter of no changes. But I don't think anyone will want to be in the position of needing to drop 800g a raid to raid naxx
It’s not much, but for me nothing is better than receiving an immediate (within an hour or so) follow up text from someone I just went on a date with letting me know they had a great time. It immediately confirms that the other person felt the same way and makes me excited to see them again.
Also, if you can set a general time for a second date right away, it gets something set without allowing time for things to fizzle or excitement to wane. For instance, saying “how about a walk one evening this week?” Or “how about a picnic next weekend?”, it gets to an understanding of when you’ll see each other again without having to get into all the exact details.
I’m F but think this advice goes for both sexes. If you had a good time, let the other person know!
e.g. would it bum you out and say no, or wouldyou say yes?
My sister is 11 and doesn’t have her period yet so she can date and can have boys sleep over. I can’t have my boyfriend over or go to his place because of this. I am 18 and my parents pay my tuition so please don’t tell me to just leave if I don’t like it. We have a good relationship otherwise. My mom said that my sister and her partner are just friends and not really dating since she’s 11. She said they are just being cute and silly. My mom also said that she can’t get pregnant like I can. I find this incredibly annoying and gross that my sister could be having sex. My sister said they aren’t but why is he sleeping over? I want to tell my dad about this because I find this irresponsible of my mom. But I feel like I may be the asshole because I am jealous as well..
