Whenever I hear someone talk about a restaurant where the menus have pictures of the food on them, they talk about it as if it’s a red flag. Bullshit!! I want to see pictures of what the food I am going to order looks like!! It’s so much easier to decide what you want to eat that way. Oh and I don’t understand how people can think it’s tacky then look at the food at the table next to them and be like “oh that looks good”, then ask the other table what they ordered so they can order the same thing. I don’t care if it makes me seem like a dumb small minded person. I wanna see more pictures of food. It rules!!
My mom was the type of person who HATED pictures. She thought she was ugly so she avoided them like the plague. Most memories I have involve her behind the camera, not in front of it.
She passed away unexpectedly 5 years ago, yesterday was the anniversary, and when she died my siblings and I combed through family photos, online pictures, anything we could think of to find some way to see our mom again. There are only 3, two of which are a side view and the other is blurry.
I keep her driver’s license because it’s the only head-on, smiling picture I have to remember her by.
Please don’t avoid taking pictures if you have children. Because I promise you we do not see ugly, we do not see fat, we do not see flaws...we see our parents, our mommy, the person we love so much and will miss so much when you pass. Let us have a way to look at you again even after you’re gone.
I’ve been married 5 years. My anniversary was back in November. My BIL (SO’s brother) met his now wife a couple of years ago, got engaged and started planning the wedding. One night at a family dinner, they announce that they set a date...November 9th, my 5 year wedding anniversary. I was a extremely perturbed but didn’t want to ruin their moment, so I stewed silently. Thankfully, my MIL spoke up and said “That’s X and Y’s anniversary. Wouldn’t you want to pick another date so that you don’t always have to share the day with them”?
Nope! It’s the date that they want, the venue is available so it’s the date that it’ll be. Didn’t want to hear any more about it so we dropped it. (Come to find out that the venue had availability 2 weeks before but whatever). I was upset for a while but life is too short to hold grudges so finally I got over it.
The day of the wedding arrives and everything goes off without a hitch. SO and I are both in the wedding party. During the reception... keep reading on reddit ➡
My (25m) wife died 19 months ago. It was real hard on my the first few months but finally started putting myself back out there. I met girlfriend (23F) 7 months ago. It was going pretty well and she moved into my apartment around 4ish months ago. In hindsight we probably rushed this.
My girlfriend is very overprotective and clingy and scared of me cheating as she’s been hurt in the past. I let her have my phone password so she could ease her mind. She saw a photo of me and wife and asked who she was and I explained. She seemed to take it well but was a little bit awkward about it.
Fast forward 3 days and I go to take a shower and leave my phone on charge in the bedroom. I come out to see my phone unlocked. Weird but I let it slide. Later in that day I go through my photos to upload a new profile picture to Facebook. All the photos of my wife and me and her together are gone without a trace. I check my Snapchat my eyes only because I had a few in there along with intimate photos of us... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened two weeks ago, but I found out today. Throwaway as they use Reddit.
My best friend (m) is married to a photographer, she is actually quite well respected locally and has bad exhibitions... just not quite like this.
They have a young son who I went round to babysit for while they had a well earned break. My best friend being the loving but incompetent idiot he is, bought her an expensive Polaroid camera which is markedly worse than anything his wife owns. They've given it to their son who has shown no interest whatsoever.
So I'm pissing around with him, watching cartoons and spot the camera among his things. My friend and I have a childish sense of humour so I take the camera and take a Polaroid of my junk. It turns out horribly blurry, dark and you cant work out what it is. I leave it on my mates desk on his keyboard and forget about it, hoping when he sees it he will get a laugh when he works out what it is.
Babysitting goes fine, I leave.
I went round to visit... keep reading on reddit ➡
I found out from one of my friends who is dating one of my girlfriend's friends. They had been talking about our engagement and his girlfriend made a comment about how unlucky my girlfriend was to love someone that was incompatible with her sexually. My friend thought this was a really strange comment in the context of their conversation and asked her to clarify. She tried to imply what she meant but after he still wasn't getting it she asked him if he didn't know I was "big." He has never seen my dick, so he had no idea what she meant. She then proceeds to explain to him that right around the time we first started dating my girlfriend sent photos of me to all of her friends because of my size, complaining about how uncomfortable she was during sex and in some position.
I had no idea she shared those pictures. I assumed she kept those photos to herself the same way I did the photos she sent me. If I knew she would share them I would never have sent them to her.
I asked my girlfrien... keep reading on reddit ➡

My wife and I wanted to welcome in our two new neighbors that moved in for privacy we will call them Blake and Jeff. We had an outdoor BBQ and had some drinks. Things were going well, we were all having a good time. Jeff and I are both into BMW's so we had a lot in common.
Blake ask's if he can use the bathroom and I am like sure. He goes comes back everything's normal, and then 10 minutes later they say they have to leave. I think about an hour later I hear my wife scream, I go check the bathroom and someone URINATED EVERYWHERE, the seat was dirty, the dry wall was dirty, our carpets were wet. I get people miss but this was deliberate, and there was no attempt at all to clean the mess. The only person that went into that bathroom was Blake.
Honestly I don't know what happened, but the only time I could imagine that would upset them was when my wife said her brother was a cop and that he was scared of doing his job. But that's it! Like our conversation was 100% PC nothing contr... keep reading on reddit ➡
I tried to be short, sorry. English is my second language.
I got married last fall. Where I live, fall means the trees are changing colors. So the wedding pictures are to die for. We didn't have a huge budget, so a friend of mine asked her friend if she could do it for me. I had seen some of her work and she is really talented, plus she is a total seeetheart. The only thing is, for what she charges, and since it's more of a hobby, you'll get your pictures when you'll get them. Well, I got them. And now I need to know if what Im about to do falls in asshole territory.
A few days after my wedding, my friend announced to me that she was engaged. I was ecstatic and wanted to know everything. Turns out she got engaged at my wedding. My brain gets out of its vegetative state and I remember her table being way too excited at some point but I blamed the alcohol.
I wasn't thrilled about it, realizing then that she had basically not only gotten engaged at my wedding, but instead of hidding... keep reading on reddit ➡
We are 15 years apart and we met when I was in my very early 20’s, so he had a family before that. He was happily married with his childhood sweetheart and their life was supposed to be beautiful together, but she got sick and she died. Life really sucks sometimes.
We met way too soon after that and he straight up told me that he was not ready for me and he was still very much grieving. I made it very clear from the start that I got that, that he didn’t have to hide, that there would always be a place for her and that we could go as slow as he wanted or quit altogether if that was what he wanted. So we took it very slow and we have always talked a lot about her and their lives together. That sparkle in his eyes.. it made me love him more.
Obviously we had something good and we got married a few years later. Her parents had been a part of our relationship (my husbands parents died over twenty years ago) and they were a very important part of our wedding. A picture of her has always be... keep reading on reddit ➡
There’s lots of lovely pictures but I’m just wondering why so many are popping up right now?
My son Andre was together with his ex girlfriend Sandra for 11 years. Sandra is a lovely girl and we became friends independently from her being with my son. I love her very much and think it's a shame that they broke up but it was unavoidable and the best in the end.
Now my son is engaged to Alex. She is a very nice woman. We just don't have that many things in common. We talk, joke around a bit but it never progressed past the aquinranced stage.
I still have contact to Sandra and we are still relatively close. Of course she doesn't come by anymore, but whenever she is in town we meet up for brunch or dinner.
Because of all this, her having been in my life for so long etc, I still have pictures of her in my home. Not of her and Andre. Just her of her and me. And not that many. And all of them my room and not public places. Yesterday I was skyping with my son in my room and the camera happened to vaguely point at a picture of Sandra and me. My dil was in the same room and saw. After... keep reading on reddit ➡
