      how do you know if you're addicted to phenibut?
      I've been doing it daily for a while but i went a few days and didnt have any noticeable side effects

        It's hell. It's like something you HAVE to taper off with after taking it everyday for awhile. You're just irritable, everything bothers you, you don't want to go out because anxeity, you just don't feel well. I've been tapering and I already feel a little more like myself again. Next to impossible to sleep but possible thanks to weed and kratom.

        Alot fell into the same trap I did taking it not knowing about physical dependence qualities.

        I went off 4 days taking a break from all drugs because of a meth and phenivuf bender after Halloween , felt like total fucking shit by day 3-4 I took it again felt all of a sudden better.

        Fuck this drug mate. Sure it makes music 100% sound more awesome and lovely, you can talk to anyone about whatever, it's fucking easy on it. Working out on it is amazing, you hit all your PRs and shit.

        But man it catches up. Then you gotta just keep taking it at the same dose and eventually your brain catches up and not need the natural GABAs, you need it to just not feel like shit. You want the positive top of the world shit again? Increase the dose.

        But there comes a problem when it begins to turn onto you. That top of the world begins turning into that peak bottom of the world and I hear it SUCKS!.

        Most say and agree it's wds are worse than heroin. Fuck this drug. I hope I'll get off this shit for good once and for all.

          Last time I CTed for 18 days, it feels like as if my mental status has not gotten better since Cold Turkeying it, but the worse symptoms passed such as not being able to sleep.

          I was a cold hearted hard asssed man then, not the loving personality light wise type of person any more. I had to get back on it then all of a sudden I was my ol self again. I tapered off properly with supplements and that was ezmode.

          The hard part was keeping it to a week, maximum. A week turned into two, two turned into three suddenly, then daily. I'm back to tapering off this, trying.

          It's like it permanently throws your brain off balance and the only way to get it back in order is TAPER much like prednisone.

      You know the answer already, but happiness comes from the heart. Nobody can give it to you but yourself. Did you ever do anything in your past that made you happy, no matter how silly? What was it about those things that brought you joy? Have you ever considered a thing that you want to try getting into, such as a musical instrument, painting, cooking, or even blacksmithing?

          Last time I was happy when when I was in high-school and I felt that happiness again when I got lunch with that coworker that ended up ghosting me. I go out on hikes, frequent a pool hall, and occasionally go out to concerts/comedy shows with my uncle, it numbs the pain, but temporarily. I got a guitar but don't have time to commit to it. I have a solid workout routine and diet, people that say a gf won't make you happy are full of shit because I felt alive again when I was with this coworker, I think she sensed that I liked her way more than she liked me which fucked me in the end. Idk what to do

            I only said that happiness comes from the heart, and not "a gf won't make you happy". Why would someone want to be around someone with an unhappy heart? That's why I'm saying to figure out how to be happy on your own; not just numb the pain.

            If you're at work, why not try composing music for your guitar? Then when you get back home, play it out a bit? It's not the most elegant way of doing it, but it might just give you time to twang some strings.

                I feel you there. I too need to get myself out there. Many places in my area won't let me in since I won't get the Fauci Ouchie. I'll list some general answers then.

                Join a club surrounding a thing you like. Go to that club for the purpose of engaging with that thing you like. If you're going for girls, they'll know and can smell it on you (though I think you learned that already).

                A church or other religious community is practically a club too with regards to the above. Do you follow a set of religious tenets? It might not be a bad idea to drop in.

                Whatever you do, you're a busy man with a lot of things to do, but you're having a good time while you do it. Heck, maybe you want to try something new. You ever wanted to learn a martial art? A dojo might not be a bad place to start. Yeah, there are those boomer fitizens who'll go on about how hardcore they are at fighting, but fuck them. You just want a taste of what's being offered at that class- not jack off on everyone else.

                If you're having a good time, a woman will be more enticed to believe that she will have a good time with you too. And remember, you lived your life up to this point without her; and even if it's dreary now, you can continue on without her. You're the prize, not her.

                It went ok. I always build up fear in my mind about what people will say, but no one really cares you're there alone, or they won't say anything to your face at least.
                I had a few beers, enjoyed the band, had a short convo with a dude about music but that's about it.
                There was a really cute girl I was standing next to at one point, that seemed to be there alone as well, but I couldn't work up the courage to say anything to her. Baby steps I guess.

                Anon I want to do the same but dislike drinking alone because of personal reasons. I'm happy that you're putting yourself out there to see what happens, I don't think I have the balls to do it myself right now.

                Yeah I don't blame you. It was rough at first, but it helped that there was something else I could focus on, and it was I band I knew and liked their music. I don't think I could just go to a regular bar either.

    I've got a family now but I lost contact with all my friends when I went to uni. I've been sat here playing my way through it for four hours now...

    I fucking wiped out on my daily bike ride and scratched the shit out of my brand new bike I just bought not even a week ago cost me $1000. Got some road rash on my glutes I tried to lift just before and that shit hurt too much. I was really getting back into the grove of it and a little concerned I might fall off again if I'm out for too long.

      Scratches give bikes character. Also if you live in a shithole you bike being scratched will lower the odds of someone stealing it.

      how did you fall off? I consider myself a shit rider and I'm on a $600 merida hybrid bike and I stick to pavement mostly.
      I try to avoid roads where I can. The closest I get to wiping out is when I snag my front wheel between the footpath and lawn where there's an edged gap.

    The worst part about quitting vidya and porn is not just the amount of time you realized was wasted on those hobbies - but realizing just how miserable you really are. I don't have any distractions left, just my job to barely occupy my mind. But even at work I'll think about how it's been years since I've visited a friend, been hugged, or received a compliment. This crippling loneliness is really becoming a struggle for me, almost too much. When I got in a motor accident a few weeks, I didn't care that I was alive. Had some family tell me that they were glad I was okay, and that cars are replaceable. I didn't know what to say. I haven't told them why I just didn't care.

      When she's talking to you about the things she likes and finds important, then chances are she wants to hear what's important to you; not a confirmation that you agree or disagree. The trouble with politics lies in how much is hot-button issues. One wrong step, and you're arguing with holes.

      If you and her can have fun, she'll push aside her political views for you; because she'd value you over said political views. So just go with her and have a good time.

      As for giving head, I wouldn't know. It'll take a special kind of woman to want to suck my hairy shaft.

        4) Apply magic lube.

        6) Help yourself to some hair to guide her. Let her have some breaks, looking for fun not puke on the shoes here.

        7) Profit.

And unless I have to work with them I don't want people in my social circle who are diametrically opposed to everything I value (and much less engage in intimate relationships beyond a ONS with them).

    Water, thanks.
    Been trying to talk to people but it’s difficult; I stutter, stammer, freeze up, can’t think of what to say, etc. I kick myself daily that I didn’t start sooner but here we are, trying now. People are usually very nice until they talk to me for a bit then they get weirded out, being drunk helps a lot but I’m trying to minimize that as a crutch. Got laid last weekend after a 4 month dry spell, so that’s cool. I think I need therapy, but there’s no therapists accepting patients in my area at the moment, any advice on what to read, do?

      I've worked jobs where I had to interact with a lot of people in a day. If you live in a tourist heavy area, consider working something with tourism. If you're serious about it, you'll be less jittery when talking to folks. The stage fright though doesn't truly go away, but you do get better at managing it.

    If I was ruler of the United States, every man would be required to hit the gym and stay under a certain body fat percentage. Gym memberships, protein powder, and creatine would be covered by health insurances. In high school, sex education* would be mandatory and all young men would be taught the art of pleasuring women and cunninglingus. Guys with poor facial features, like bird like features, will be given free jaw surgery.

    *Sex education in most US schools are just showing kids pictures of cauliflower looking warts on genitals in order to scare them into not having sex, and "abstinence only". As if that's all there is to sex. It's like the people who came up with the curriculum never had orgasms before.

    I found out this afternoon the contractor for a project I am managing is probably going to sue us. I just got over about a year of working nights/weekends and stressing out about the project, I was trying to get my life back on track. I just went back to the gym on Wednesday after about six months off. This fucking bullshit happens every time I try to get my life back on track, as soon as I start feeling better about getting over stuff I get smacked in the face with shit like this.

        Mostly the schedule, they are four to eight months behind because of environmental permitting (which was one of our subconsultants' responsibility, they had a lady PM who sucked then unfortunately their head guy died because of the vaxx). They will probably also come after us for quantity overruns but our contract with them very clearly says that quantities are their responsibility.
        It's bullshit, I'm just sitting here numb right now. I spent over a year working my ass off, stressing out about the project, getting depressed, skipping meals, skipping the gym, pissing my family off, just for shit to go sideways anyway. I thought about a month ago we had turned a corner and was going to get this shit finished without drama and then I hear about this on a Friday afternoon. Meanwhile my house is still wrecked and my kids are going nuts and I have to get emails and shit together for this project this weekend while I have about four other projects that need attention.

            The whole project is snakebit, the state agency that owns it has been a pain in the ass the whole way through with plan reviews and bullshit interpretations of the contract. There's a city government and a county government that do nothing but put in change orders for aesthetic upgrades that take forever to negotiate and the state won't give us any extra time or money for them. There's already been two injury crashes in the work zone in four months that we'll probably get sued for too even though neither of them seem to have had anything to do with the work zone.
            I feel bad for the contractor in a way because this is the first project of this size/scope they've done but they have not helped themselves out and we have been busting our ass trying to help them. Now I guess they'll come after us for a couple million dollars even though they're ten times the size we are.

              I can't make you feel better, but my father relayed to me about insurance costs for airplane mechanics. A mechanic who works on fixing up airplanes is advised not to get too much insurance, or else if the plane does craft; the other party wouldn't think that that mechanic has more money than he actually has; and so maybe with less insurance, they can encourage those would-be suers to go after the manufacturer of the airplanes.

      Lieber ein Ende mit Schrecken, als eine Schrecke ohne Ende.

      This means, "It's better a terrible ending than an unending terror." It's hard as hell, but you have to put it behind you, walk away, and don't look back. Why would she want a man she would think less of around her? It's for her to have power over you. It's better no company than bad company. It's going to suck hard, but it will get better. Don't give up. Better you be alone than be with someone who would push you down.

      The good times are the times you treasure, but if you don't regret the ending of it; then you did it as well as you could have. It's alright to say, "We had fun there and then doing that.

      You're the one doing the reminiscing. Whenever a memory, or just her, starts creeping into your mind you have to inmediately throw the thought out and think of something else, or focus on whatever you're doing. It'll take time for it to become automatic, and then at some point, could be just a couple of months, you won't feel much at all from reminiscing.

            Also to add, it's not the virginity that's repulsive. It's all of the little things that virgins have to go through that often makes a pro-sex-haver have to effectively step on or around eggshells to deal with that a virgin often has. All the moments of fright, hesitation, eagerness, awkwardness, etc. Sex is extremely volatile. Any little emotion you're feeling will be turned up to 11 in the act of exposing yourself to going shaft deep into a place you wouldn't even go into with a gun.

              Sex isn't everything in the world no matter how hard the memes go (and they go very hard), but you seem committed to going through with it at least once. Be safe and be careful.

              If I can offer one more piece of advice. If your eyes are saying yes, but your penis is saying no; that is the time to listen to your penis.

I'm prioritizing working on myself and making genuine connections with people first, over getting laid ASAP. I don't want my first time to be with a girl that I'll probably never see again after.
                I'm 22, so hopefully there's enough time to run into someone I can click with before it's too late, however romantic-novelly that sounds.

                I'm a 26 year old virgin and honestly not too worried about it anon. Both of us have plenty of time. It's not necessary to tell someone you are hooking up with that you're a virgin. Like the other guy said, everyone has a bad performance every now and again so just go in with the thought that if you're bad 1) it could have been first time with a new person jitters and 2) honestly who gives a fuck.

                t. been grinding at a PhD for 5 years and dual majored in college so quite literally only go out once a month and it always involves wholesome friend time and not a situation that could devolve into sex.

                The way I see it, and of course this advice is coming from a virgin, sex is just an animal thing and we are both animals so why should we even think twice about it?
                If anyone ever asks I will tell the truth and if they ask why I'll tell the truth, simple as.
                A healthy sexual relationship is just one part of making it brother, this time next year I'm going to have my dream job and the best physical/mental fitness of my life so far. As long as you are being constructive toward yourself who gives a shit.

          Your best bet would not to say you're a virgin, just that "you haven't done this in a while". No point in trying to say you're a stud because you probably won't act the part.
          Women just simply don't like complete virgins, it's just biology at work. "Men multiplly (in case of 0, add), women divide". You need to have been vetted and preapproved by at least ONE women at some point in your life for her to feel you're worthy of sex.
          As for how to actually do it, well just lie and make it sound truthful. If you're a bad liar because you have good morals just remember that this woman probably doesn't GAF about you beyond your youth and dick and she's absolutely also lying/embellishing a lot of what she says to you.

              The thing is you probably can, but it'll take a lot of time and failed attempts. That's just the way things are with online dating, you'll trek a mile on hot coals for a girl to pay you attention and if even the slightest thing about you is off-putting she'll drop you.
              If you want to find a more accepting, openminded and unjudgemental partner you need to do things in person. Get more social, go to events, find a girl you click with and get her happy enough to be with you (ultra hard part) that even if she does find out you're a virgin she'll be cool with it.

                yeah I'd love to but where to find these? Not like I'm Mr.extrovert with a huge friend group inviting me to parties every weekend, hence why I'm resorting to online dating. All the new hobbies I'm currently eyeballing to try seem like sausage fest. (martial arts, rock climbing, snowboarding).

                Yeah, these things go from medium to nightmare difficulty if you don't already have a preexisting friend group.
                Don't shun a hobby just because of the sausage fest. Guy friends can get you laid (almost) as easily as female friends. Remember it's always about making connections. If you make friends with the socialite Chad at the rock gym there's a non-zero possibility you might get invited to something else with women involved. Or at the very least, you made friends that you can now hit up the bar with and not appear to be the lone weirdo that the girls won't go near.
                Online meetups get a lot of flak for also being big sausagefests but they're worth a shot. Same idea - you probably won't hook a chick at meetups because literally every guy there is doing the same thing, but you just want to make friends.
                Honestly if you have even a passing interest in hiking, give that a try. Hikers are generally very chill and outgoing people, and a lot of fit girls love to hike as well.
                There's also singles events which I personally have no insight on. Probably also sausagefests, but at least the few women who do attend know they're there to get dates. You just need to somehow stand out enough for them to notice you.

              >side effects
              nah. only cross medication reaction is if you are on nitrates for high blood pressure or something which i extremely doubt. only thing it does do is it seems to give me delayed ejactulation because it makes me like, uncomfortably hard. other than that though, it responds just like a natural erection would, it doesnt just pop up and stay there, just responds to stimuli easier.

              i use it for if im going to be drinking or with someone new just as an insurance policy. and i dont fret about any bs 'its not natural' or whatever. you can ditch it once you show what you can do.

              as a side note, i would consider gaming up on how to eat pussy/finger properly. you dont have to be autistic about it but just familiarize yourself with what women actually like and some basic anatomy. you can be ass at sex and still make it up by giving oral like a champ.

    Lifting is going good, this week was rough though. Tweaked my back on monday due to me being a retard. And the last couple nights I didnt lift bc of dumb family obligations.

    Been eating right generally, slipped up this week a bit but overall been doing well. friends have been commenting on how I look bigger (in a good way).

    I feel good, but there are still some things I want for my life, and Im working towards them. I wouldn't say Ive made it but Im certainly worlds better. Hope you guys are good too.

    I've been cutting and lifts solely on my apartment's free gym. they only have 1-10 kg and 25 kg dumbbells. I don't think I can play with 25 kg dumbbells yet so I make do with 10 kg with slow controlled movements and increased reps (up to 20 reps per set).
    Been thinking about going to a nearby gym just to see how much I can lift. Also the legs day are quite boring since I'm limited to using 10 kg dumbbells.

    I refereed high school water polo tonight, 4 total games, both boys and girls varsity and junior varsity. You guys I cannot do this. The boys are all handsome otter mode guys despite being teenagers. And the teenage girls are almost all fit attractive girls wearing skintight suits, pretty much always rides up their ass so their two full asscheeks are in view and the front goes right between their legs so their hip creases and sometimes seems like the outer lips of their vaginas are showing. And the girls frequently watch the rest with just bikini tops on with their tits out.

I'm in my mid 30s and I know if I don't take care of it NOW then I'm going to just put myself into an early grave. I have been fasting but it's hard. The fast itself is easy but I'm a mess psychologically because I have a sort of I SEE IT I NEED IT mindset when it comes to food. That is, I know it's tasty and I'm just experiencing fucking withdrawal symptoms and cravings for what amounts to instant gratification.

    I'm going to fucking make it this time, I'll never give up. I really am trying to get rich or die trying. And fuck my family who just try to sabotage me at every turn, who act "concerned" about my lack of eating, who try to drag me down with sentiments like, "hey let's get some pizza and beer because I know it's your favorite". YEAH IT'S MY FAVORITE BUT YOU'RE NOT DOING ME ANY FUCKING FAVORS BECAUSE I'M TRYING TO PRACTICE DISCIPLINE AND BETTER MYSELF AND YOU DON'T APPRECIATE THAT WHEN YOU DELIBERATELY TEMPT ME TO RECEDE BACK INTO MY OLD WAYS FUCK YOU. I know I sound like an edgy 12 year old but it really makes me seethe that people won't shut the fuck up about what I will or won't put into my body and at my discretion.

    So I posted here a few weeks ago about finally meeting a girl and she being so sweet and bla bla bla. Well what do you know she more or less dumped me out of the fucking blue. Not even that, she just went completely cold from one moment to the next during a social event. The worst thing actually is that she never gave me an honest answer. Just kept acting like I was making it up but at the same time ignoring me and clearly not wanting to meet again.
    Little bit bummed but I'll take it as an experience and learned some lessons along the way. Onto the next one.

    Had to put my dog down, worked out so hard after I sprained my wrist and haven't worked out in 3 days. I miss my dog guys, I go outside to smoke and look down my path and wonder where is she? If you have a pet make sure you tell them you love them and give them something good to eat because I wish I did that more now.

    Feeling so lost and disillusioned that somehow I got the idea that fleeing to Japan was the only way to solve my problem. Spent all the last 3 months studying Japanese 8 hours a day, discarding all my other responsibilities, but suddenly, poof! All motivation for Japan is gone, and now I'm left with an even bigger hole in my heart and no vision of what the future holds for me.

      mmm it's up to you, best to judge on her mannerisms. Just don't overthink and chat without expecting anything, as simple as that

      I’ve gone from 400lbs to 215lbs. I look somewhat decent now, and my friends are asking me why I don’t have a gf. I’m 29 and a khv and so deathly scared of intimacy, I’d hate for anyone to know my darkest secrets or even see me with a shirt off, I’d feel so vulnerable. Does this ever go away with time or do I just die alone?

      That is absolutely amazing bro, seriously well done. That demonstrates a level of effort that 1/2 of humanity wouldn't even bother to make (the bare minimum that is lol). You need to learn to love yourself unconditionally.

      I'm this anon

      I'm a 26 year old virgin and honestly not too worried about it anon. Both of us have plenty of time. It's not necessary to tell someone you are hooking up with that you're a virgin. Like the other guy said, everyone has a bad performance every now and again so just go in with the thought that if you're bad 1) it could have been first time with a new person jitters and 2) honestly who gives a fuck.

      t. been grinding at a PhD for 5 years and dual majored in college so quite literally only go out once a month and it always involves wholesome friend time and not a situation that could devolve into sex.

      The way I see it, and of course this advice is coming from a virgin, sex is just an animal thing and we are both animals so why should we even think twice about it?
      If anyone ever asks I will tell the truth and if they ask why I'll tell the truth, simple as.
      A healthy sexual relationship is just one part of making it brother, this time next year I'm going to have my dream job and the best physical/mental fitness of my life so far. As long as you are being constructive toward yourself who gives a shit.

      so take it with a grain of salt, but from perspective the biggest obstacles to happiness and actually making it are lack of meta-awareness and inability to be vulnerable.

      The way I was able to get over the sense of vulnerability was to take psychedelics with a group of friends. Nothing like being in a group of 6+ people, getting paranoid that the warm feeling on your leg might be because you pissed yourself because you're so high, and then realizing that it doesn't matter. Even if I pissed myself I would bring attention to it, laugh about it, and clean it up. Who cares.

      If someone asks me specific enough questions in real life I'll now tell them about those darkest secrets with a smile, I'll tell them about all the friends I've found dead or the terrible things I've seen happen to the vast majority of people I've loved.

      Congrats on the weightloss btw. The way I look at it, the only way for true change is a period of heightened neuroplasticity. This can come from persistent dedication, "epiphany" like moments and of course, psychedelics. If during that neuroplasticity you can come to terms that you can be vulnerable and happy, the neurocircuitry that results in the shame you feel now will change and you'll be more at ease.

      It goes away with time but you got to work mentally on yourself to change the way your mind thinks for it not to be further instilled. I know many 30+ virgin professors/scientists and many who are not, and the common thread for the virgins is that they do not like trying new things in their life and are afraid of vulnerability.

      Keep working on your body anon but your mind deserves work too. I am burnt out/depressed from my workload now but I am entirely convinced that I am going to make it.

    I probably got cheated on or something.
    (likely won't learn the full truth)

    I'm super glad for this relationship to be over, so many lies and backstabs, I tried my best. It's so astounding how much I have found out about her in the past few weeks and/or months, never would I have guessed her to be such a terrible terrible person.
    Yesterday I met the guy I suspect to be her new monkey branch that she swung onto to get validation from (so she could finally discard me) and he was still very defensively insisting that my accusations towards him are a big breach of our former friendship trust (moron what) and that he didn't do anything with her, but at first he kept avoiding the actual question and I caught him slip up a detail that he then denied saying, so I know he's full of shit. Sad.

    Even though I have some anger still, I mostly just feel disappointed in the whole situation and in both of them. "Thankfully" I had had a long time of seeing her lie to and betray me, I had already realized how she actually is before shit hit the fan fully, so I am not surprised (though I did forgive her and give her so many new chances believing the promises that she'd change etc.).

    I'm so fucking happy to be out of this I used to hope so much for her to just fuck off to someone else (which she did) and I literally can't wait to go out into the world and actually do shit without being constantly emotionally siphoned. You guys were all right and I'm going to work on my naivete and weakness, I should have told her a stern no and left ages ago.
    As much as this might sound like a cope and you might call me a cuck I feel like I've learned a shitton regarding all aspects of dating/relationships, I wouldn't want to be the former me and I'm feeling amazing now that I'm free.

    You might've seen my former posts, feel free to have a laugh and if there's anyone struggling with a BPD partner perhaps learn from my mistakes:

        Anyway I can't overstate how much I can't wait to go out there and do all the things, seems like suddenly so many new activities to engage in and avenues to explore popped up in what the future is to hold and I just want to do everything.

          >women make me fucking retarded
          that i can sympathize with. some just have this effect on you, it’s like an addiction. however you need to realize this is not your only option. you say you haven’t felt this chemistry since your previous partners. that also means there are plenty of other (non taken, happy to be with you) women who you will have this connection with. she is not special and treating you like a dog. i’m not going to tell you what you need to do, i just hope you can reflect and make decisions with your own best interest in mind. you have done this in the past so you can do it again. you’re kinda being a moron but hey, it happens. i have my moments too.

      9/10 women will only go as far as flirting and dropping hints and setting it up so you can ask them out. just enjoy the attention. i have some coworkers who flirt, squeezing my bicep and lots of compliments. i just take it with a smile and never (excessively) reciprocate the flirting. an added bonus is when your gf is around, it will make her territorial and jealous which does wonders.

    It's so completely insane to even live as a sub Chad male. Anyone who is average or ugly is less than invisible. And yet men are still expected to fight and die in wars, work dirty jobs that run the world with 95% work place deaths being male, have no rights or privileges legally or socially compared to women, and then smile and not give a single word of dissent.

    Everything about the modern world is completely unsustainable. Collapse and war is coming

        You're really really overthinking it. There is no "game", it's just people chilling and talking. It should feel natural to you. She wants to see you a 3rd time and kissed you on the 2nd date, surely that's a good sign, no? Arrange to see her again. She's probably just late in responding and wouldn't have kissed you if she was already turned off by you. She may just want to get to know someone better before she literally pair bonds with them, I don't get this obsessive pressure for sex. Take it chilled and see how it goes.

    My girlfriend rarely has sex with me anymore. Now, I understand that some girls have pretty low libidos, but my girlfriend masturbates ~3 times a day. When I confronted her about it she broke down crying saying that she feels pressured to perform for me during sex and she can only have an orgasm when she's alone since that's the only time that she can relax (and she had also never orgasmed with her previous sexual partners either). This really hurt me because I thought she was orgasming during sex but she was just faking it.
    How can I move forward from here? I love her and believe she loves me

      Based on what you told me, she seems to be pressured into believing that she needs to pull Olympic level stunts to please you. How did she come to get that into her head? We are all plagued by unrealistic expectations, so I would start there maybe.

      Tell her what's important to you. Is it her orgasming that's important to you? Or is it the fact that she's comfortable enough with you to orgasm with you?

      What is a happy place for the two of you? Is it a locale in the park? An ice cream parlor? The bar? Go with her there and just intend to have a good time with her. See what she does. That's what I would do.

        To keep it real with you, she is letting you down easy with the "it's not you it's me". If she is masturbating all the time, she wants sex. It's not like she's fucked up on SSRIs and like physically cant get wet/aroused. She's dildoing herself all the time.

        Take some time for introspection on your dick game. In the great majority of times you have sex, she should be screaming and your sheets should be wet everytime. Deep dicking, oral, fingerblasting, foreplay, choking

        [...]
        she's probably also cheating unironically, or will b soon. you write this like a redditt cuck post. get your dick in order. you should also be fucking her tiwce in a session a lot of the time

        that kind of stuff never works out, if its bad now it will be worse in a few years

        I should add that she loves sucking my dick, and would happily suck me off multiple times a day. No, I don't think she's cheating. I just feel bad because I want the intimacy of sex and I want her to enjoy herself sexually with me too

          Ultimately it's up to her to want to try to orgasm with you. Women are emotional creatures, and I think somewhere in what she said lies some insecurity or two that's holding her back from really giving everything of her to you. Are you the prince who passed her thorns to kiss the sleeping beauty, or are her thorns still up, poised to stab if you get too close?

    Any other graduate students in here? How the FUCK do I meet people and make friends? I'm at the end stages and just dissertating now and don't need to do coursework or whatever with the other grad students. I have two friends, one is leaving the state since they don't want to stick around in person to write the dissertation and the other left the program entirely (still lives in town though). I don't really get along with any of the other people in the program so it looks like I'll be alone in a few months. I chitchat with some regulars at the gym but that's it. I have a roommate, but he has military grade autism, talks like a robot, and hides in his room all day.

      5th year STEM bro, also started writing dissertation just this past week.

      I am not sure what the answer could be. I had a group of friends that were from different departments and even then we would only be able to coordinate dinner every 6 weeks, they just graduated since they are a year ahead and now I have very little.

      Unfortunately I accidentally made friends with some neighbors and now they wait for my car to park. They and their friends are a bunch of late 20 alcoholics who only want to get drunk and go to restaurants, neither very feasible when you are grinding a PhD. Don't have the money or time to do this shit multiple times a week so they just constantly bitch because they don't understand even having a true 9-5.

      The closest I've gotten to this is playing games with old highschool friends and just getting drunk on chat, not ideal but it's definitely good to have a network to relax with. I don't know how bad your situation is but if you're looking for virtual frens my discord is Vidofnir # 1479, I don't have too much time for vidya anymore but if you want to game with fellow ISTSTEM autists every couple weeks I have small group.

      There are legit reasons to want to break up but please for the love of God anon don't fall for the "le epic single party pussy sex whores etc." meme - you ahve a 10 year relationship that you've been building and it is definitely not worth it to break the whole thing down just because you feel like you want to party and fuck random women or something along those lines.

      If you've lasted in the relationship for nearly 10 years without wanting to break up, surely you must be very compatible with each other. If there's anything that's bothering you, I recommend you to try and see what solutions you could come up to the problem, if there's anything that could be changed or adjusted to help stuff fall back into place - maybe even talk about what's bothering with your gf. This might sound cliché but remember that sometimes you have to try and/or work for love - if you become stagnant in the relationship, it might need to be brought back "manually".
      Not only in the friday feels threads have I seen many anons recount stories of how they broke up long-lasting and successful relationships (sometimes even ones where they were each other's first) merely because they felt the call of the "single life," only to soon find out that said "single life" is very shallow. You can probably guess that they all regretted it.

      If you just want some time for yourself, I'm sure your gf will understand that and your relationship, if it's already lasted that long, should have no problem withstanding a period where you perhaps spend a bit less time together or something (not talking about taking a "break" though that's an entirely different thing imo).

She has no idea and I just don't know what to do.

        The grass is greener on the other side. Nevertheless, it sounds like you need closure to not having that thing that you felt was an important part of your development done and over with. If I can suggest an exercise, pull out a pencil or pen and a piece of paper, and hash out exactly what you think is missing by being in long term relationships for so long. Then ask if it is possible to do it with your girl. If it just "isn't the same" with having her around, hash out why and what you think is missing.

        Really important, but communicate with your girl. She's been with you for 10 years. Talk to her and tell her what's been on your mind. Don't sugarcoat it. You still care about her, and it's important that you convey that.

        Are you wondering deep down if you can withstand the onslaught of life all by yourself? Without anyone with you, you might learn how to fly solo, but in the end having somebody by your side will make things a hell of a lot easier no matter how good you get at flying solo.

        I've broken up with girls before and may have even broke a heart or two but eventually I found "the one" and I don't regret not settling before. Many of them went on for months or even years but subconsciously I always knew something didn't sit right. You can trust your gut on this one because if you've found the right one, you'll know.
        I agree, simply breaking up because you want le epic single life to fuck whores is a bullshit reason but if you legit don't see yourself with a girl for the rest of your life there is no reason to drag on the relationship any longer than it needs to or even settling.
        Choosing your wife is the SINGLE most important life decision you will EVER make. gays will obsess forever over which car they're gonna buy, which gaming computer, or which brosplit to choose when in reality those things don't matter. You can sell a shitty car, you can get a new computer, you can change your routing tomorrow, but going through a divorce with a woman you've fallen out of love is terrible. And you're not getting younger. Dating at 22 is easier than at 27, at 27 easier than at 30, at 30 easier than at 35, and so forth.

          For women. If you're a man, you're better off late 20s and early 30s for getting girls than being the same age as them (early 20s). Relationships for sure, hooking up maybe it's more even depending on how Chad you are lookswise, because looks is all you have when you're that young.

              You really think it's THAT rare? I'm not saying to expect that, I'm saying it's not impossible. It all depends on what you have to offer looks, money, career, and status wise. At 35 you can still go for early 20s chicks for LTRs, and if anything your chances are better long term with one of them than a 30 year old who has been with 5+ dudes before you. Chances of that working out is like 25%. And that's not a number from my ass but a stat in regards to marriage divorce rates and how many partners a woman has had.

                Most 35 year old men are married with kids or at least kids on the way and an unmarried 35yo already rings every possible alarm bell with girls. There might be a reason why he's not married, e.g. successful bachelor actor like Leonardo DiCaprio, but more often than not the reason he isn't married is simply because he's a fucking loser

        I've been walking around like a tit thinking it would just 'get better' on it's own. I just read online a slipped disc, combined with symptoms of numbness in the anus or genitals you need to meed immediate medical attension. Which is why I'm waiting for a call back now. They didn't give a time frame, should have asked before hanging up.

    Lads did I do a cringe or a based?

    >out for a jog on one of the local trails
    >unusually crowded day even for summer, having to dodge families, dogs, old people etc
    >see a group of maybe half dozen late teens/early 20's stacys just shambling towards me
    >they all seem to look at me in unison
    >I feel like they're about to make fun of me, many groups of people have laughed at me in my life I can just sense it
    >one of them says "Hey"
    >I say "No. Fuck off." And start going even faster to get away from them

    At the time it felt good to tell them off but looking back I feel like I might have come off worse than I intended. Thoughts?

        Right after I hit post I realized I forgot the other words:
        >Back in July, female coworker of 3 years wanted to get fired from job due to not being able to handle stress
        >We were close friends for the past 2 years
        >I said I hope she'll still hang and shoot me a text about her life after leaving
        >She says she doesn't really keep up with people and probably wont even keep talking with her other friend at work
        >Kind of surprised at her coldness and disappointed
        >Later in the month she changes her mind and doesnt want to leave
        >Still kind of upset so I decide to stop being buddies with her
        >Last week we finally talk and I bring up the topic
        >She denies ever saying it. She claims she said she has trouble keeping up with people but would try with us. Says I misunderstood completely and now she's mad at me for giving her the cold shoulder.

        I've never been rash and wouldn't make a snap decision to drop her.
        I swear I heard what she said.

          I would be careful with that one. Someone who wants to waffle between life-changing decisions is probably just venting and is probably bored with her life so is trying to stir up the pot a little bit.

          All I'm saying is, don't give her anything you don't want to see broken.

    How do I stop being a loser? I find it really hard to socialise at a very basic level compared to most people, I’m very quite and slow when in a social meeting. Even with friends and such I just don’t seem to understand the unspoken rules of socialising, and I sometimes take small things as being malicious or having deeper meaning. I would also like to meet new people and branch out a bit, but it seems like I can’t at the moment with how poor my social skills and personality are. How can I improve?

        I used to be much more social with alcohol as well, but I’d often resign myself to “class clown” and do stupid shit. I had a wake up call and stopped acting that way when I drink, now I’m just like I am sober really

      Set goals and just keep on trying. What do you mean when you say socializing?
      Do you want friends? A gf? What do you want to do with your friends? Play sports? Play vidya? Just hang around?

        I guess I just want to meet different types of people, explore. I do have a group of friends but I feel like they’ll leave me at some point since it feels like I’ve changed a lot lately. I wouldn’t mind having a gf but I doubt it would last that long frankly. I go to a boxing club regularly so there’s a few people there I know but no more than simple greetings and sparring together. I guess that’s better than nothing though.

      Are you guys judgmental of others? What about yourself?
      My friend's who have the hardest times socializing and seem contracted are typically the ones who have more cunty behavior (they are still good dudes) and they judge others, judge themselves and they look at small things for meaning. They've opened up and asked what I mean by certain things and I tell them the truth, I mean nothing by most of what I do.

      At least for those people it's a combination of judging and also trying to apply critical reasoning for other human's social interactions. Critical reason and pattern recognition are both used interchangeably in life, but pattern recognition is easier and takes less mental energy so when shooting the shit people are typically not planning anything or doing anything for an express purpose, they are just "going with the flow" by using pattern recognition and not judging in the moment.

      Can you give an example of not knowing an "unspoken rule of socializing?".

        No I would say I’m actually not a judgemental person for the most part. I feel others are more judgemental and that I would have to be more judgemental to fit in with others. This is also one of the things I meant by an unspoken rule since people will gossip about mutuals and show what they really think about them, they analyse them pretty much. Pointing out all of the things they don’t like which I wouldn’t really care about. My friend group do it about other friends and I’m assuming they do it about me a lot as well. I’m not sure if this is normal or shitty behaviour though

          That's shitty behavior my friend, I have small group of people I work with that do that and if asked my opinion about some gossip I tell them, "I don't really care".
          Everyone has their own way of behaving and the way they wished they behave. I tease/shit on people jokingly but 1) I hug or give some physical contact when I leave a group, 2) tell them to drive safe (I tell them love them if I known them for more than 1 year) and 3) if a little gossip starts I'll something to the tune of "who cares lets ...".

          You just need to find who you want to be, truly internalize it and become that person, then find people who are cool. I've had a lot of friends commit suicide and die from accidents growing up so when I go for a hug or jokingly slap someone's ass for the night I genuinely want them to be safe and I do not care if they say something when I walk away.
          I am by no means Chad but I do the things I enjoy when talking to others and I try to facilitate them enjoying themselves too. The only truly heinous traits are things like lying, gossiping and being selfish. As long as I don't do that shit, anything they say behind my back reflects them being shitty.
          How old are you/the other guy by the way? I was a bit more critical of things when I was in college but now I'm 27 working 6 days a week 12 hour shifts, so there has been a natural shift of not giving a shit if someone wants to judge me or any other person for being authentic.

            That sounds like pretty good advice actually. I have been trying to become a better ideal version of myself but it’s hard because it isn’t realistic currently, but I do want to work towards it. I am 19 years old, soon to be 20.

              I'm young but you're real real young dude, don't stress it. Don't get dragged down by shitty behaviors, adults with degrees and jobs who shit talk are pathetic. They exist and abuse alcohol and drugs well into their 30s and truly will never make it. Those are childish behaviors, it's understandable that those people are your age and just learning how to properly socialize themselves. I'm just in late 20s and already all my close friends hug each other and tell each other they love them before leaving.

              For reference, and I don't know if this will be helpful to anyone, I have 3 "friend" groups.
              1) Childhood friends. No degrees, union working jobs, having families now. They are not fat but not IST, but great people who don't shit talk and are caring. Each person can confidently be who they want to be, authentically just want to have a good time and want to provide for friends and family

              2) Gradschool friends, these people are going to make it. They are all STEM and either chemists, physicists or biologists/geologists. They shit talk the cunty administration/professors but not other people. Most of them are actually women but they are more chad than most people here, they've been putting the time and work in their doctorates and any social time is truly no stress and just to fuck around.

              3) My goddamn neighbors/the locals. People who are early to mid 30s, they are all alcoholics with master degrees in social science with low-paying jobs they don't like and have nothing to do with their degrees. They are on countless medications to function and both men and women wonder why they can't find a good LTR while they suck and fuck randos every other weekend. This seems real judgemental but you can be hedonistic and make it, but they aren't because of their mindset. They gossip, they judge others, and they are cliquey. All because they hate themselves.

              TLDR: Get into a make-it group, which happens naturally when yourself are going to make-it.

      Use CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy, read up on it and how it works. Can't be arsed to write a long post. Quick tips:
      >pay attention to the other person, look at them
      >people think of themselves and not fucking up more than they think of you and your possible fuckups
      >you can talk about pretty much anything, it all has to do with how you talk
      >stay in the moment and pay attention to how you feel if you feel bad/off/awkward, and you'll realize it's nothing, it'll go away, or you can lean into it and you'll feel better because you're the one in control
      And then I don't know, join a sports club, you'll be able to do a bit of talking there while still having a main focus on the sport.

    I realized confidence is a feedback loop. You can't fake it. After years of lifting, looksmaxxing and fashionmaxxing I finally am attractive. Guys respect you and girls give you positive attention. These interactions give me so much positive energy to be fully confident and not feel insecure. Knowing I walk into a room and mog pretty much every guy in that room is such a great feeling too. Most men these days don't take care of themselves and let their potential go to waste. 5 years ago I was a bloated dyel with terrible fashion and had 0 female attention, absolutely pathetic. Now girls straight up approach me to tell me I am attrative. You can't fake confidence, you have to earn it.

      Before you met the other, you were able to survive just fine without them, right? You can keep doing this for the rest of your days. The thing is when you're with someone special, you'll cherish the moments you're together. Of course you enjoy those moments! But you can also go on without them too.

        Just fine... I was a suicidal drug addict that did little with his life. She started taking more room in my life after I was locked up after a failed suicide attempt. She's helped me sober up from everything and showed me how to take care of myself and build a life that makes me happy now. She means everything to me and it's just difficult. The only thing on my mind all day is always the same, try my best to make her as happy as she made me
