First: I'm not saying one HAS TO text back fast all of the time. If you're busy, you're busy and if you don't want to text, you don't want to and all that is perfectly fine.
But it's ridiculous when people say "hey, now I gotta wait 100 years so he/she doesn't think I'm thirsty" or whatever. You get what I mean. That's ridiculous. If you're texting and you want to answer, just do it. If you're busy, you don't.
I have never met someone who, nor thought myself "oh, a fast response, he/she must be texting me because he/she is so boring and has nothing else to do." Instead, I understand when it takes time but am sure happy about a fast reply.
It's something different if it's a forced conversation. Then, no answer might be better than immediately writing some pointless stuff.
OH MY GOSH this blew up. WOW! Thank you for all the awards!! 😊
People who have been through trauma frequently have exaggerated startle responses.
For some reason a lot of people think it's hilarious when someone jumps and will then take every opportunity they can to "prank" that person. It's almost never funny to that person.
Even if it isn't a trauma response, causing someone to feel fear and then laughing at them for it is a dick move.
Edit: for clarification, this is only if you can afford to. I should have changed “try” to “if you can afford.” It doesn’t work if you have a minimum wage job.
If a full paycheck isnt realistic to save, start with 25% of one. Then 40, 50, etc and see how much you can save. It’s not a “we can never ever use this paycheck, only spouse x paycheck, not spouse y.” It’s there in case of emergencies or big purchases, that’s the point of saving it.
Edit 2.0: stop sending me vulgar and rude DMs and cussing me out over this post, I have no idea what you’re trying to accomplish. If it bothers you so much, scroll on past it or discuss it in the post, NOT my DMs
Update: has been solved! Post and OP have been found and linked. It seems the glass I had in my head was different from the one I found, I guess I just remembered it differently.
But thank you all for helping me find the post and OP!! I really appreciate how much people come together on here to solve things for no benefit other than helping each other out.
In r/relationshipadvice last year sometime a guy posted about his wife deliberately shattering a glass that was a gift from a dear friend.
As I recall, it was a glass with a gold owl on it and vintage/antique.
Today a glass like what was described was posted in an antique group I’m in online, I’m trying to find the post and hopefully OP, to try to get him in touch with the person selling them in case they are the right glasses (the person has a set).
None of my searches are coming up with the right post and I can’t find it. Does anyone else recall the post or is able to find a link to it?
Photo of the glass I found here in my... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know from FNV that the Happy Trails Caravan wanted your Pip-Boy to be used to navigate the trails and check topography I would also assume that a Pip-Boy would probably used to monitor your vitals, check time, access radio signals. Beyond that what real world purposes would a Pip-Boy serve and why did Vault-Tec give them to their dwellers.
Also not sure how VATS could be explained using real world logic.
I use gmail for some of my personal emailing. One of the better features of gmail is the ability to add the + symbol to your email when you're entering it online to track who you sign up to with what. For example: [email protected].
This will always make sure your emails go to your original email address [email protected], but with the added tag, it lets you track when that company then sells your email to another company for advertising purposes. Because when that company sends your their junk ads, they will send it to [email protected].
Case in point, I signed up to the Secret Lair site for the first few Secret Lairs. Today I received this:
Notice the To: [email protected] at the end of the 'To' email address? I only ever gave that email version to WotC and only for the Secre... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've (27M) been with my fiancée/girlfriend (24F) for three years now. I proposed a year ago, but it definitely wasn't out of the blue - she'd been not-so-subtly hinting at getting engaged for months at that point. Although we're both somewhat hot-headed, we generally have a good relationship and we occasionally only fight about small, normal things.
I know NOTHING about jewellery, but I spent a lot of time looking for the right ring to propose with. I talked to two of her closest friends to get their input, and in the end I spent around $4000 on the ring. When my fiancée saw it, she told me she loved it and I'm pretty sure she was telling the truth.
This January, my fiancée called me up in tears. She'd somehow lost the ring on her way home from work and she had no clue where it might be. I left work early to come help her search, but since she'd been riding the subway, the ring was long gone.
My fiancée was clearly distraught, so a few weeks later I dipped into my savings and bought... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve been dating this guy for a few months. We met on bumble and he was really nice and cute. He is usually busy studying as he’s an engineering student (I am too but he’s a grad).
A few months ago he asked to be my boyfriend because he didn’t want me meeting up with anyone else on bumble. I hadn’t been messaging anyone on bumble anyway because we were talking, but I agreed and deleted the app and we became exclusive.
Lately he hasn’t been able to spend time together a lot. Some times we go 2 weeks without seeing each other. He’ll still text cute things about how I’m his girl and how he misses me but that’s about it. I try to give him space because I know studying is hard.
Well recently my friend told me that even if you delete bumble, your account stays up if you don’t delete your account. I was creeped out by this so I downloaded the app to officially delete my account. The very first person I see when I redownload the account is my boyfriend!
And not only that, when I scroll... keep reading on reddit ➡
There are many people who believe that Neville should have played a bigger role in the books due to the fact that he was almost the chosen one, but I disagree (despite Neville being one of my favorite characters). I think the means by which Harry is chosen instead of Neville shows that much of what happens in our lives is no more significant than the way a predator chooses its prey. At the same time, our lives are incredibly meaningful in the way we choose to live them and how we have the ability to determine our own purpose. Harry happened to be chosen because he was a half-blood like Tom Riddle, but being a half-blood did not make Harry special, no more special than Neville being a pure blood.
With all that being said, Neville’s life still had incredible purpose. Even though Harry’s purpose in life was chosen for him, it was only his life that was important not who Harry was. However, who Harry became did determine his significance as being the Chosen One. Neville also became a... keep reading on reddit ➡
When you’re thinking of a “use” or “purpose”, also think about why you’re doing so?
“Use” and “Purpose” are just some of the many “Reasons to Exist” that are easier to comprehend and felt as players, hence I believe why the devs said it like so.
Utility and purpose are concepts that are understood by players, and though players’ experience certainly matters, you can’t design a game solely from the players’ perspective — players are not the game makers.
Utility and purpose are great ways to give features reasons to exist, they could be direct and impactful. But there are obviously many other reasons — ambience, emotional elements, world building, aesthetic, humor, etc. But note —
— these reasons are all impactful and felt by the players.
And when you think from the opposite way this might not be the case.
The example that inspired this post is water bottles. Several posts recently tried to give use to them mostly related to extinguishing fires. Though that is a nice realism de... keep reading on reddit ➡
