2021.10.21 05:49 colorfulrancher My stepdad is one of the only men in my life that has ever treated me right. And I love him to death for it.
I'm not trying to come off as pouty or edgy when I say most of the men who have ever come in to my life have really sucked. I'm being completely 100% fucking serious. I'll start with my actual dad. I was born and lived near Vladivostok in Russia, and my father was an American but his grandparents were Russian. He was living in Russia when he met who would become my mom, they fell in love, got married and eventually had me. So I was a natural born citizen. But when I was 6, we moved to America. I don't remember much about life in The Old Country, but life here wasn't great at home.
My dad, for some reason, got into drinking when I was around 8 and would regularly beat my mom and once shoved me into a wall. They finally separated when I was 10. My mom would later meet another guy when I was 12 who wasn't physically abusive but was degrading and essentially played on her feelings and manipulated her. They split less than a year in.
And as for me, my first boyfriend I had when I was 13 was essentially the school bully who I was really only with because he was always kind to me but he eventually started picking on my friends, so we split soon after. He then tried going around the school saying how much of a sl-t I was, so that was fun (not). I would remain single all the way through high school and only got another boyfriend when I was a freshman in college. But when I saw how he was when he was drunk, the reckless destruction he caused just to "have fun", I couldn't deal. So yeah, I guess me and my mom had a shared habit of picking shitty men to be with.
Anyway, the man who would eventually become my stepdad started seeing my mom when I was a junior in college. I didn't have high hopes for him not just because of my Mom's/our past experiences, but because he was also a police officer. My view of them had been skewed pretty wildly by this point. So I mainly kept my distance. Around this time, I was also recovering from anorexia and slowly building my weight back up. I was fully expecting to be shamed left and right by him but, surprisingly, I wasn't. He was surprisingly calm, polite, kind, and downright caring a lot of the time. And sometimes I would see him and my mom dancing together. But even then, I still didn't give him much more than inch.
But yet he continued to do right by me. Always complimenting my appearance, saying how proud he was of my grades, asking about my interests, what my friends were up to, all of that good stuff. Like I said in the title, he was one of the only men to ever come into my life to treat me right.
I remember one time he came to visit me at my apartment and took me out for dinner, as well as helped me build a new piece of furniture. Before he left, he said his usual "I love you sweetie" and hugged me. But this time, I wouldn't let go of him. I had a particular bad week at work (and a few other things on my mind), and I remember he tried letting go but I pulled him to me again. I cried a little bit, but he just stayed silent, occasionally just saying "It's alright baby" or something like that, and every time he said it I just cried more. We stayed like that for almost five minutes before he eventually asked "Do you want to talk about it?". I gave him the details, the whole time he's delicately holding my hands, and I eventually pull myself together.
And from then on, I think we became a lot closer. I went and spent more time at home just to be around him, we called each other a few times a week, and we even go to hockey games as often as we can. It's funny because I never really found myself wanting a father at any point in my life. Really me and my mom got on fine and were doing okay. But just him existing and being who he is, even when I'm not around, it brings me genuine happiness. I'm still getting used to being called things like "baby", "sweetie", "angel", all that lol. No one's really ever called me those things.
But yeah. That's all I wanted to say.

2021.10.21 05:49 BackdoorBetsy Can't login anymore, 'new' devices. Get activation codes instead of verification codes.
So I updated ipad and have new IP so now and then, it thinks its new device. I press send codes at login, I get them but are activation codes, not verification codes which I need. Obviously it says wrong code.
What do I do now?
Getting codes for phone sms and email + google auth.

2021.10.21 05:49 morganpriest Moonbeam crowdloan pre-registration using a non-transfer proxy: which address to use?
Hello everyone, I pre-registered for the glmr crowdloan, and even created a non-transfer proxy for the occasion. My question is the following: am I right in assuming that I had to register the proxy address, and not the address being proxied? Thanks a lot in advance!
Actually the more I think about it, the more I wonder if I shouldn't actually register the one being proxied, as the funds will come from there...

2021.10.21 05:49 Me_London Would you buy a semi or a detached ?
A large semi has just come on the market. Needs a lot of work, but its priced accordingly. Around 2000 sft. Would you rather buy a smaller detached (1800 sft) paying about 25% more ?
I am inclined towards buying the semi. We'll have more space and have money left over to invest.

I recently discovered that Amazon made the HD (FLAC ~800kbps equivalent) and Ultra HD (master quality) tiers available without extra cost to the regular subscribers !
So for the same price as Spotify Premium (9,99€/month) you have access to master quality audio (7 million tracks if I remember correctly).
Have a good day ;)

2021.10.21 05:49 No-Limit4659 22f Looking for my new best friend and you could be the lucky winner
Never had a consistant best friend but maybe because lifes fast but my brain goes faster...thats a dumb adhd joke. Honestly if you too have adhd we can bond. Honestly I jist hope the fun tone I had in my head while writting all this comes through...
Im am strictly looking for friendship, ideally someone with similar interests and being able to make time for one another to just chat, talk about life, and the strange things about the universe
I'm an artist, mainly digital but as written above I do have adhd so I will pretty much find a new artsy hobbie every other week. I'm planning on making a puppet next. That's not necessarily an interest of mine but thought I could weed out some people with that one 😅
I'm big on oldies like movies, music, and tv. But don't hold me to having too much knowledge on any of it! I just enjoy enjoying things without the pressure of being tested for it. Need an example? I just rebinged all of I Love Lucy and went down a rabbit hole of interviews and docs about it for the paat 2 weeks. Also Stevie Nicks is God. Not necessary for you but needed to be said.
Speaking of god i consider myself a spiritual atheist which absolutely makes no sense. I mean in the sense i dont believe in a god but feel very in tune with the universe and the curiosity of how it actually works. Bonus points for you if you're into neville goddard and law of assumption
Now to rattle off some quick things about me: I love true crime, all things spooky and Supernatural, conspiracy theories, boardgames, cartoons, the occasional binge watch on any given streaming service, (ahs, degrassi, that 70s show, boy meets world) are my comfort shows, (When Harry met Sally, Pleasantville, Coraline, It chapter 2, Now and Then, BTTF) are some of my many comfort films and yes I am aware some of those are strange choices, i like dressing in completely different aesthetics everyday, i change my hair color everytime im bored, i went to school for theatre design/tech but am taking a break to do literally everything I can imagine
i feel like thats enough and I should leave some sort of mystery since clearly i do not know how to shut up so if you like me not shutting up we'll be great friends

2021.10.21 05:49 Pyroh_HW [H][EU][Hydraxian Waterlords RP]
Hello Classic Era enthusiasts!
Gift of Taretha is a relatively small group of people (~80 on discord) that love vanilla and chose it as their forever home. We decided to start on Hydraxian Waterlords because it is not merged into any other realm and there is a very low population. This is as close as we can get to a fresh classic server.
Gift of Taretha is relatively new. We got our first level 60s not long ago and most of the guild is in their pre-raid gear. We value every single member for their personality and not their WoL parses.
We can offer a friendly and helpful community. Social and RP events and some casual raiding(20man).
Everybody is welcome to join us and enjoy the game at their own pace!
Don’t hesitate to shoot us a message on Discord: kCgVWV6BsP Or in-game.
Warmest wishes, Pyroh

2021.10.21 05:49 newearth420 How did you hear about Jung in your life?
2021.10.21 05:49 Human_Tip_4709 Is oral sex perfomed on women as rare as women online say it is? How do they accept that without feeling vaginas are not appreciated by straight men? People say the reason is male selfishness, but gay men are men & they commonly give blowjobs. So it's only about vaginas. Tell me if this is true!
This stuff made me hate my vagina and also hate women and men. Because women accept it all and men would never accept it if blowjobs were uncommon. Maybe women aren't too keen on their vaginas to begin with, whereas men love their "manhood."
I lost sex drive and sexual attraction knowing that men don't appreciate vaginas. I see attractive men now and think about all the women who said oral sex is not common and blowjobs are expected, and I just feel nothing towards the men and feel sad.
How do other women not feel bothered by it and it not effect their attraction? Is any of what I said true for the majority? It made me feel inadequate and depressed about having a vagina.
Why are vaginas an issue?
