2020.10.22 06:40 DragonRain12 I have a weird liking cycle with a friend/ex, and don't know what to do, I think I'm still in love with her [long/need advice]

Hey, I need a bit of advice with a girl who I really click with.
I have a wierd cycle going on with a "friend". Carrie [F18] (not real name) and I [M20] have been friends since high school she 12 and me 14, we met at a comics club and became close since then, oir friend groups where really connected and our best froends ant the time where dating and with time stared having feelings for each other, she proved to have bigfer balls than me since she conffessed first, we where still kids, she lived outside the city and her father was really strict, we still had fun being together as driends who liked each other. Then I grew balls and asked her to be my girlfriend, to wich she replied "actually I started liking someone else, and she is a girl" so a kiand of heart broken but understanding, we take our time apart and stop talking.
Some time later, I think the next year or so, Carrie tells our story to a new friend of hers with a detail "he was my first love and still kind of have a crush on him" so the friend tries to be cupid ans gets us back to talking and soon enough we give each other another chance, since I never really stopped liking her, and we ended in the same note "I'm sorry I think I am a lesbian", and again heart broken take a step aside and after a really long time I get over my crush we would still say hi to each other but only occationally really talk.
So years pass, I graduate from high school and started and break up with my first real girlfriend. Now we are in last year.
We by luck find each other at the entrence to an astronomy presentation she with the school and me by myself, ans we stuck together the entire event, commenting, laughing and joking the entire time, after the presentation I keep talking to her in our way back to school and we say to keep in touch. That day still feels special.
We see each other again a few years latee I had an ex-student presentation with a teacher I was really close to in an english club he directed, Carrie's club. So after the presentation I start to be a helper to the teacher and star hanging out with Carrie wich was always wxcited to have me close. And a big fear came to me again, I was catching feelings for her again (My therapist said she hadn't saw me so excited talkimg about someone) we start to hang out together, I accompany her to the bus station afyee class and after a lot of getting tje fear of beimg rejected againg I tell her how I feel "Hey, I think I'm starting to really like you, I'm ok if we are just friends but I wanted to tell you how I feel" her response "dude I really like tou too" and I freak out. (She defines herself as pansexual)
So we start dating, not considering each other boyfriend and girlfriend since that is different in our daring culture. And I was really happy, we saw each other after school since her father didn't aprove of me since I had 2 years of university (like dude my only parties are in DnD) but she still invited me to family events and got to meat her parents (her mother really liked me) so this goes on for a few months until I start to feel like she doesn't really feel take atrention to me, this is even more exagurated since we didn't kiss, she had never kissed anyone and was afraid of it.
So one day I ask her about why she felt more distant "I really tried, and was really happy, buy could not get myself to fall in love with you" has her response, I was actually happy since I expected that. But heart broken again.
We talk and say how happy we where as friends but just didn't feel it as couple, me again, understood. So we decide to take our time apart but stay friends. And make a promise, she wanted to dye her hair and keep it a secret, but would told me once she started.
We talked a few times here and there this few pandemic months but no much.
I also started datig other girl like a month before the pandemic, it didn't went well since I defined it to my therapist as "everything I wanted with Carrie, but withoit Carrie" and you imagine how that went.
And a few days ago Carrie talked to me again, and it was... Different, it was like before, when we where together I felt that warm again, and got scared. She was reporting the hairdye project and we where talking a lot in chat.
So I've felt really weird this last few days for all of this, my birthday is in a few days and I'm getting together with my 2 closest friends to drink. I never got to say everything I felt for her during the conversarion and was thinking on blaminf the alcohol and telling her how important she is to me. The kicker is that she is probably going to move to a bigger city to her university and will loose her if I don't give thus las shot.
So any advice on what to do? Because this entire situation is really confusing to me.
Do I just let it be, and wait till the conversation fade out again?
Do I just straight up tell her to be our first sexual partners as a last memory of our story? (Joking)
Or don't accept defear like cobra Kai, eat the bullet and give it another shot?

2020.10.19 21:24 Active_Bandicoot_660 How I almost got into a bar fight. (Kinda)

I (24M) have a lot of time on my hands and I’m telling my buds at work about my drunk experiences I’ve had. This is one of the best ones thus far.
The year was 2017. I was at a Christmas party for my job they held every year. I had worked there for over two years. It was a casino. The first two years I worked at the gas station out front. Up to that point I was working as a security guard for about 6 months. The casino had open bar from 6PM to 10pm after they handed out awards and prizes for the year. I was 21 at the time. After a good handful of mixed drinks and me bouncing around from table to table of drinking games, I was “feeling good” to say the least.
For whatever reason, I saw a lady that was a regular customer that I rang up frequently at the gas station. She was usually just very busy and never said anything to me. I saw her at the party, and she was also drunk. We ended up chatting for a while harmlessly. Soon after, we went and did the Cupid shuffle on the dance floor. I didn’t see her behind me. She ended up grinding up on me and smacked my butt. We both laughed. I didn’t think anything of it.
Shortly after, I walked up to the bar to get a drink, and some guy I never met stops me. I was pretty drunk, so I was confused. He asked me “do you know who you were dancing with?”. I told him “I knew her from when I was up at the gas station. She’s super cool”. He then went on to say “Well that’s my fiancé that’s grinding on you”. I’m a very laid back drunk, so I just patted him on the shoulder and assured him it was harmless. I walked off.
I’m not even sure how long it was, but I wanna say 20 minutes later he was trying to get me outside to “talk”. I saw him glaring at me and I wasn’t planning on fighting him, but I wanted to talk to him. He was surrounded my his friends I guess. They all saw me walking super fast towards him (I walk fast when I’m drunk idk why) and they thought we were gonna scrap. He began to rush at me then I just stopped. He was cursing me out and I was smiling. Then, a guy I knew who’s known me since I was younger intervened. He knew this guy well. I guess he took him aside and told him I was a good guy and I was going to be joining the Marine Corps soon.
Soon after, he proceeded to walked towards me and no one stopped him. I was waiting for him to come punch me in the face. He walked up mean mugging, and then shook me hand. He then told me what he was just told, he laughed then grabbed me and bought me a couple beers.
For being on the verge of almost blackout drunk, I can remember this so vividly. Haha.

2020.10.18 12:14 discostew44 Is the reason I can't find friends or relationships due to me being FtM?

Hi guys, For context, I'm 20 years old. I'm in a bit of a complicated position where I actually had to de-transition after 9 months on HRT and in the shitty public health system here and aren't in a safe position to begin transitioning again anytime soon, however I do pass just fine and don't tend to get misgendered. However, my body is quite feminine still and I'm also overweight, that combined with the weird mid-amount of time spent on T and the year or two since I went off it, I look kind of... weird when people actually see me, I think. I also have Asperger's and find it really hard to connect with anyone, I used to have a few internet friends and such but haven't had any IRL friends for the last seven years and now my internet social life is also completely fizzled out. I also had a terrible experience breaking up with my last girlfriend when I was 17 (so three years ago), which sent me into a lot of self-hatred and reactionism. I was thinking I was gay at the time so I wanted a break to figure myself out and I ended up having all her friends coming after me to call me a faggot and tell me to die of AIDs. I had a few other relationships through my teens but all of which were online. Anyways, in short, I have no friends, no networks, aren't studying (and when I did never clicked with anyone at school or my college courses I "clicked" with), have never had friends or hung out with anyone, never been on a date, nor have I ever had an IRL relationship of.. any kind, really. I'm a pretty lonely person.
As an Aspie, I frankly don't want much of a social life. I just want one good friend or relationship- someone I can trust to love me for me, you know? But I don't and haven't had that for years. The moment I turned 18 I've been trying to find someone- online dating apps (Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid, even tried Grindr and such before), tried going to LGBT+ youth groups, tried going out, tried reconnecting with people. I've found no one I can get along with. The only people I match with are guys who I'm not really interested in past friendships anyways and tend to ghost the moment they find out I'm FtM, and every single girl I've messaged has just kind of.. stopped responding to me.
I don't know whether it's my having Aspergers' & ADHD, my being FtM, or if it's even something to do with me at all. I've tried on the left & the right, religious communities (I was ... really religious for years because I hated myself so much), going back to school, TAFE courses, LGBT groups, LGBT Facebook groups, Twitter, social media as a whole. And it's nothing and no one. I really don't know how to go about this, I'm really unconfident and dysphoric, and so lonely. I'm pretty much trying not to cry as I finish typing this. I just want someone to love me. My family don't support me at all and I'm so isolated. I wish someone would even give me a chance. I feel like my dysphoria and hating myself puts baggage on someone without them even knowing I come with the bags. I've tried being stealth and being open- even the other trans people I found don't want to give me the time of day. I feel like other trans people see me as a "cis bootlicker" or something, and cis people see me as something subhuman. I don't know why I can't make friends.
I really don't see any other reason for it other than my being trans puts people off and weirds people out. My Dad is always telling me I look like a half-and-half (I don't) and it weirds everyone out that sees me. When I was a kid, I was bullied really badly, and the girls wouldn't play with me for being too much like a boy, but the boys wouldn't either because I was "a girl". I feel like the exact same thing is happening to me again. Am I cursed? Is it just me being trans? I just want one friend. I'd give anything for one friend or a relationship or anything at all. I don't know how to open up to anyone anymore. I try to break the ice and chat to everyone I match with or chat with on servers but everyone just starts ignoring me eventually no matter how much effort I put in.
I'm sorry for venting, I'm just so perplexed. How do you guys do it? How do you just.. find friends? Girlfriends? People who actually want to give you a chance? Going out places, going to groups, church, people with similar interests- none of it has worked for me so far. I don't know what to do. I'm 20 and I haven't even begun my life, and I feel like my being trans is what's holding me back. I'd just pretend to be a cis girl, but that would be worse than hell for me. I live in Melbourne, Victoria. Maybe it's just the people here. I really don't know.

2020.10.17 14:44 lantern552240 Matched and talked to girl on Ok Cupid.

After my tinder failure , I made profile on Ok Cupid (with my face ) and added a lot of dark jokes. Finally after long time , a girl matched with me (and complimented me on my humor) and we chatted for half hour. It was very interesting and I am currently on cloud nine. How do I work it from here ? How do I keep conversation interesting ? How to not cross line? Should I respond immediately? Need your advice guys. Thanks.
Update : Got ghosted. Sucks.
Update 2 : She unmatched me on Ok Cupid and also removed me from Snapchat. Ok guys , that's the end of today's episode.

2020.10.16 18:35 Pop_cornucopia On dating apps, do you show up under searches for your gender or assigned gender?

I’m a trans theydie (she/they), pan, and seem to match with very different kinds of people depending on whether I show up for searches under men or women.
If I show up for searches under women, I usually match with cool enbies, queer ladies, and trans folks. I’ll also match with some men but they always unmatch with me soon after. If under searches for men, I’ll occasionally match with a gay guy but more often match with cis women looking for friends. It’s kinda frustrating to need to switch what I’m showing up as to change who i might actually chat with!
I know there’s other options that don’t search that way, like OkCupid, but I had much less luck on that app. So out of curiosity, what do y’all use and what group do you include yourself to show up under?

2020.10.15 21:56 melixxa I (22) found out boyfriend (20) has been using dating apps for 'masturbation purposes'.

Hey guys, need some advice. Here's some backstory.
Boyfriend, let's call him Joe, and I have been dating for around 6 months. I assume we both like each other quite a bit and I genuinely believe that he's a good person.
At the very beginning of our relationship, 6 months ago, I saw Tinder on his phone while sitting next to him. I asked Joe why he uses Tinder and his answer was to meet new people. At the moment, I dropped it but later on, during a conversation on the topic, I told him it bothers me and he apologized, saying he understands and that he will delete it.
Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago, It came to my attention that he follows random girls on Instagram who live in our city. Because of Joe's past use of dating apps, I brought it up and he said he just follows random girls on suggested because he thinks they're attractive. Okay, not so suspicious but I kept this in the back of my mind. Sometime later, I noticed on Joe's Playstore that Tinder and OkCupid had been downloaded and deleted. FYI, I saw this because we use each other's phones and I needed to download an application on his phone. He denied using it and explained that he doesn't know why that happened. In the meanwhile, he is still following random girls on IG.
I was not convinced, and one day, while he was sleeping, I looked through his application download history. To my surprise, I saw at least 10-15 'dating apps' and the likes download then deleted through various intervals since June. I told Joe and he initially denied it, then confessed telling me that the reason why he uses such apps is that he thinks porn is 'too fake' and that he uses these sex/dating apps to look at women's photos or videos to masturbate. I asked him if he talked to any of these girls, he said no. After later 'questioning' he also claims to have talked to around 10 girls. I checked out these apps and the girls are like amateur 'cam girls' who get paid in coins or whatever. But I do know that he has chatted with real girls in our city from regular dating apps like Tinder or OkCupid.
Joe expressed his guilt and apologized. He said he knows it's wrong but that it's like an addiction and he has unsuccessfully tried stopping before. This issue was discussed for 2-3 days. At times, he would freak out or get angry. Claiming that I should forgive him because he immediately forgave me for kissing my female friend when I was drunk a while back. Telling me he knows what he did is wrong but that "It's not that big of a deal and I don't think it's cheating. So I can't understand why you can't forgive me?" Backstory on me kissing a girl, as soon as I remembered, I told him what happened the next morning. I'm bisexual and we had discussed the idea of me fooling around with women before.
I don't think Joe actually met up with anyone and had sex or anything with these women.
My biggest problem is that this is a long-term thought out lie. If Joe was honest with me about this, it could have been discussed and solved. Now my head is fucked. I really like him but my trust is broken.
I'm not sure how to proceed and honestly, I'm just looking for some outside opinions and insight. What are your thoughts? What should I do? What would you do in this situation?
Thanks.
TDLR: 20-year-old boyfriend has been using dating apps and the likes behind my (22) back for a couple of months during our relationship. Idk how to proceed.

2020.10.15 18:12 ssorbom Dating profile advice?

So, my original post was removed because I added a link to my OkCupid profile. As I said before, I have posted my profile on the OKCupid subreddit, but I think it's time to Branch out where I seek advice. Does anybody have any suggestions for my dating profile? The full profile is below:
About Me
I am my best self when I am fulfilling an urge to satisfy my curiosity, whether that curiosity manifests in studying for my Masters of Public administration, exploring the nooks and crannies of downtown Los Angeles, or just spending the afternoon coding. I developed a voracious appetite for reading by starting late, then needing to make up for lost time. So whether you want to talk about the finer points of Alan Watt’s “Way Beyond the West”, or you just need to know how to get your damn router fixed, I’m your man!
Obviously, there is a plague stalking the world right now, so like everybody else I am cooped up at home for the moment, being a good citizen and minding my social distancing. But don’t think for a minute that this is my normal. Despite the fact that I have a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, I take great pride in the fact that I get out on my own alot. I am chomping at the bit for some new adventures once the world reopens, whether they involve going to a jazz concert, spending a quiet afternoon at a museum, or just searching out the latest trendy coffee joint. These moments are what make life sparkle for me, and I am looking for someone to revel in them with.
So stay a while, and let’s chat! Adventure is but a single date away!
Current Goals
Finishing my Master’s Degree, then getting work at my Alma Mater ( Go Lions!), then establishing myself in a downtown studio apartment somewhere somewhere & traveling as life permits
My perfect day
For me, the perfect day starts the night before. I go to bed early, I fall asleep without too much trouble and then I wake up at 6 in the morning and I’m ready by 7:30. I find that all of my best days start when my day cycle is more or less aligned with the Sun. Mind you, I am not naturally an early riser. But I love the quiet of the early mornings and the sense of peace I get when I drift off to sleep without burning the midnight oil.
My Partner Should Be
Kind, intellectually curious, not (currently) addicted to any harmful substances.
I Spend a lot of time thinking about…
Where I will go to (eventually) celebrate the end of quarantine, which museums I have yet to reach in the LA Area, wishing I could travel north by train on the adventure of a lifetime before a job nails me down.
My Biggest Regret
I wish I had learned to use Public Transit by the time I turned 18. When I finally did (much later), it was such a transformative experience! It has also led to some Hairy Adventures! Go ahead, ask me! I can talk about this for hours.
What I’m Actually Looking For
A free spirit to bend some of my straight edges. Somebody I can truly share life with. It is important to appreciate the moment, but it is also important to plan for tomorrow. We will all grow old someday, and I want to grow old knowing that I found somebody to share in at least a a few of those moments with.
The most exciting place I’ve ever been
I visited Austria and Northern Italy in 2016. I brought exactly one backpack worth of supplies. I normally travel light, but this was the lightest I had ever traveled .
Best Movie of all time
Inception. It had an ending that makes you go “AAAAHHHHHH!”, and then vigorously start applauding Christopher Nolan’s Brilliance! Having a soundtrack composed by Hans Zimmer certainly doesn’t hurt either.
Generally speaking, I like movies that have a labyrinth-like plot, capped by a big reveal.
Best Netflix Original series, hands down:
Altered Carbon
My Favorite game to play with friends
0 AD is my go-to game for playing with friends. If you are an Age of Empires 2 fan, think of that, but with a slightly more detailed ruleset. Be warned, I typically play Romans, and if I have the opportunity to reach Siege capability, I will crush you underneath the wheels of my battering rams. For the glory of the Republic, of course. E Plurabus Unam!
My favorite concert venue
LACMA Pavilion. It’s outdoors, so you can enjoy a gentle breeze. Outdoor restaurants are literally across from the seating area and they feature some of the best free jazz on offer in Los Angeles.
Favorite Feminist icon
Dr. Lindsey Doe! Her happiness and zest for life is absolutely infectious! She puts out alot of interesting (and useful) content about how to better accept ourselves.
The Director I want to re-make Dune
James Cameron. He did an amazing job at world building with Avatar, and I believe he would be a good choice for a world that is as rich as the Dune universe.

2020.10.14 21:39 duelcard Road to Avengers: Displaced, One

MarvelsNCU Presents…
Road to Avengers: Displaced, One
Event: Avengers: Displaced
Author: duelcard
Editor: DarkLordJurasus and dwright5252
Rush hour had passed, but there seemed to be more people than ever.
Gripping his companion by the hand, Donald Blake, aspiring pediatrician, shouldered his way through the bustling crowd. He exhaled rapidly, eyes darting left and right. He had seen a glowing feather fall earlier, and he did not want to lose it again. After all, it meant that the five angels, expelled from heaven, were still alive.
But no, the moment was gone.
With a sinking heart, he scanned the city streets. People from all places and backgrounds squeezed together, filling up buildings rapidly. Yellow taxis honked, aggressively trying to maneuver their way through the snail-paced traffic. Colossal billboards flashed through images of models with diamond-bright teeth. Trying to find a needle in a haystack would be easier than locating a piece of glittering plumage in the usual New York lull.
“Mr. Blake, you can let go now,” the foxy voice by his side remarked. “Unless you like it this way.”
“Apologies, Sif,” Donald Blake released his tight grasp, glancing at the shorter woman by his side. Her faux smile, framed by dark bangs, all but revealed her annoyance. He let out a nervous laugh, stomach churning with the familiar feeling of guilt.
“Whatever,” she muttered under her breath. The Lady Sif stepped closer to him, allowing a group of chatting seniors to pass behind her. “We won’t find the angels at this rate. They’re not making their presence known.”
His fists balled in the heat of the moment, but Donald Blake knew it was futile. He took deep breaths to calm himself. “Thank you, Sif, for being a voice of reason. It’s just...it’s my fault. Both the angels, and Volstagg’s situation.”
A few days ago, Volstagg had been injured in an attack by a mysterious opponent. The rotund man, once a jolly boor with incredible strength, had been reduced to a shivering, gray corpse that burned with fever.
It pained Donald Blake to see his friend in such a dire condition.
“Then it’s settled,” Sif spoke, her eyes flashing with excitement. “I know how to cheer you up.”
“What?”
“I’ll take you on a date, Thor,” replied Sif with a wink.
She basically dragged him across several blocks until they found themselves inside a rather warm gymnasium. Sif paid at the desk and led the thunder god into a section of artificial grass and black nets. Thor watched as Sif grabbed a short, metal stick—known as a bat—and stepped into the sand. A few yards away, some weird sort of spinning machine faced her.
Thor dropped his gaze from the tall, dark ceiling. He had heard of these places before. “So this is a batting cage.”
“It’s really rare to see one in Manhattan empty,” Sif remarked, shuffling her feet around. She tapped the plate with her bat, her knocks increasing in speed. “I would say, half the people I’ve met so far are Yankee fans.”
“You watch that stuff?” He didn’t get what was so special about people throwing balls around.
“It’s a supplement of human culture.” A look of extreme concentration came across her face as she raised the bat to her shoulder, ready to swing. “Send me one, will you?”
Thor stepped out of the lane, proceeding to tap on the screen. A second later, a ball shot out of the machine.
Sif moved, and a resounding whack echoed around the room. The white ball cannoned through the black mesh and found itself buried in the opposite wall. She turned, grinning with satisfaction. “Faster.”
“You know we have to pay for the damages, right?” grumbled Thor, but he didn’t refuse. “Another one, coming right up.”
The two kept at it for a while. Thor sent another ball whenever Sif looked like she was ready. They acted mutually and in silence, lost in their own thoughts. It wasn’t that enjoyable of an activity, but it certainly wasn’t tedious, either.
“Your turn,” Sif finally gasped, dropping the bat to the ground. Her face was dripping in sweat, and she plopped herself down on the bench, chest heaving. “I didn’t miss one.”
“I see that,” Thor eyed the far wall, where dozens of balls rested snug and fit in painted plaster. He took his place, but instead of a bat, he drew a small pen from his pocket. At a thought, the utensil shimmered, revealing a shimmering hammer that now rested in his palm.
His arm dropped as he tested the familiar weight of Mjolnir, his prized weapon.
“You could’ve disguised it as a cane,” Sif eyed the hammer.
“I’m not disabled, so that’ll just get in my way,” Thor drew back his arm before releasing it in the direction of the opposite wall. Just before it ended in the same fate as Sif’s baseballs, Mjolnir came to a sudden halt. It hovered in the air before it whistled back into Thor’s hand.
The phone in his pocket buzzed, surprising him, but he ignored it.
Thor tossed the hammer back and forth, allowing it to glide through the air as smooth as possible. He knew that, living as Donald Blake, he lost control of his strength sometimes. The best remedy for that was, of course, practicing with the hammer that nobody else but him could lift.
His phone buzzed again, and he frowned with slight annoyance. If there was one group of people he’d like to see suffer in Hel, it was telemarketers.
“Nice,” Sif laughed as Mjolnir’s blunt end slammed into his fingertips.
Thor cursed, nursing his jammed digits. “I was distracted.”
Buzz.
“You should probably pick up,” Sif remarked with a raised eyebrow.
As if on cue, his phone shook with even more urgency.
“What is it?” Thor took the device out and froze when he saw the caller ID. He quickly answered.
“S-Stark?”
“T-Thor?” A mocking replica of his voice burst through, accompanied by distant shouting. “Are you in New York?”
“Aye,” Thor replied immediately. He pinched his thigh, cursing himself for switching back into Asgardian accent so fast. He had done so well these past few weeks!
“By any chance, Fairy Tail, can you fly up? We have a situation at hand.”
“It’s been a long time, Kate,” Clint Barton said with a sheepish smile.
The door in his face remained shut, cold and silent. His expression of delight collapsed into one of defeat. It had been ages since he last talked to Katherine Bishop. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to catch up with the girl, but he had just been so busy after the Atlantean incident. Now, it seemed too late.
“Talking to thin air, eh, Barton?” said the mustached man standing a little ways to the side. His arms were crossed as he watched Clint’s every movement.
“It’s practice, Dugan,” Clint muttered, running a hand through his rough hair. He needed to get a haircut soon. “I’ll wait here a bit longer. Maybe she’s asleep or something.”
“At this time of day?” Dugan glanced towards the windows at the end of the hall, where the gloomy afternoon clouds had started to roll in.
“She goes out at night. A lot,” Clint muttered.
Dugan shrugged. “A year ago, maybe. Back when you were still the chief of security of this place and not a high and mighty Avenger.”
“One has better benefits.”
Dugan allowed a small chuckle to pass his lips. “I’ll be waiting in the lobby, in any case.” The man slid a hazel-colored bowling hat over his hair and strode away quickly.
“Thanks.” Clint reached a hesitant hand after his friend and partner, but the elevator doors had already closed behind Dugan.
“It’s been a long time, Kate,” Clint repeated, wondering how the real introduction would go. “I know we haven’t seen each other in a long time. Oh, why did I come here? I...have a cake.”
He glanced down at the bag in his hands, where a baked-and-boxed mountain of sweetness dangled. The cream had probably been smudged all over by now, and Clint cursed himself for not being a bit more careful with it.
After all, it was his attempt at an apology. He couldn’t be half-assed about it.
The long hand on Clint’s watch had spun forward a quarter when he realized she probably wasn’t home. That was pretty surprising, to say the least. The last time he saw her, her father had placed even harsher restrictions on her freedom. Her curfew had tightened, her movements were monitored, and she couldn’t even go out for a coffee without bodyguards tailing her. All thanks to the sudden rise in villainy.
He expected it to worsen after the Atlanteans’ invasion. If she wasn’t here, holed up in her room, right now—then all he should feel was joy for her.
Katherine Bishop was a girl who learned to run before she could walk.
“That’s that. Sorry I won’t be able to tell you about the Captain,” Clint sighed, giving up completely. He didn’t know when he would be back next, and today—the one day he was completely free—did not go as planned. He set the cake on the doorstep, knowing she would see it when she returned.
He paused a bit, waiting. For anything, really.
But nothing happened, and he went on his way.
Downstairs, Dugan had resorted to playing Sudoku on his phone. He clumsily tapped the screen with a look of determination, completely absorbed in the array of numbers. He didn’t notice as Clint leaned in close.
“The six goes in the upper left,” Clint breathed, eyes darting to look for the next digit.
“Oh!” Dugan fumbled on his phone, springing to attention. “Took you long enough.”
“Potty break.”
Dugan frowned. “You...didn’t break into her room, did you?”
“It was a joke,” Clint grinned. “And no, I wouldn’t break in just to take a leak. What sort of man do you think I am?”
“You spent half your life watching cameras,” Dugan replied. “I wouldn’t be surprised if you were into some scum-of-the-earth activities.”
Clint rolled his eyes. Dugan, who had always been something of a proactive person, had begun to loosen up. He had begun to adapt to Clint’s dry humor, too!
“You know, you could always just send her an e-mail,” Dugan suggested as they strode out into the brisk autumn air.
“I don’t think her father would appreciate her receiving messages from weird, older men,” Clint muttered. He scanned the numerous cafes lining the opposite sidewalk. Which one to choose?
“You just said you weren’t weird,” Dugan protested.
“I’m not. But still, it’s not something that I should do,” Clint tapped his chin, coming to a decision. “The Daily Grind.” He pointed at a copper colored building at the corner of the intersection. Its front—intricate letters accompanied by large windows—certainly advertised that cozy, welcoming feeling he was looking for.
Dugan agreed with a resounding murmur. “You are the most tactful of the Avengers, I see.”
Clint raised a finger to his own lips. Thankfully, nobody in the hundreds of people that shoved past them had heard—or they didn’t seem to care. “Dude! Shhhh, I don’t need an angry mob after me! And I understood that reference.”
Dugan smiled, happy with the pun he made. “Well, I…”
Clint waited, taken aback. His friend had stopped in the middle of his sentence. The man’s eyes were left wide open, uncanny pupils gazing into Clint’s own. Clint blinked, observing the hovering spittle in midair. Dugan...was frozen? No, it wasn’t just Dugan.
The entire city around Clint had stopped. Cars, people, helicopters: All were as still as a sleeping hawk. The sudden silence overwhelmed Clint, and he took a staggering step back just as the world came to life again.
HOOOOONNNNK!
Out of the corner of his eye, a car came swerving into him, tires skidding as it tried to avoid his falling body. Luckily, Clint’s reflexes acted on their own accord. His arm shot out, catching the nearby lamppost, and he twirled around the column back to safety.
His phone rang, and Clint answered nonchalantly in a shocked Dugan. Thankfully, one that could move again.
“Hey, Cupid, long time no talk.”
Clint recognized the voice that was often drenched in impatience. The man who could match his bark with bite. Also, the one who conveniently showed up while Clint was experiencing some sort of tear in reality. “Stark.”
“One and the same, love. Listen, you got your costume with you?”
“No…?”
“You can expect me to drop a package then. We have business.”
Bobbi Morse made her way through the pet shop, stopping to peer in close at a glass cage full of interesting insects. The tiny dots scuttled in and out of tossed dirt, making their way through the various tunnels plastered against the glass.
“Medium-sized ant farm,” she read the description aloud.
Her thoughts briefly took her back to a recent conversation she had with an old mentee of hers: an interesting person known as Janet Van Dyne. The latter had discovered a newfound love for ants, something that Bobbi never expected.
But hey, everyone’s welcome to what they like, right?
Bobbi moved along, past two small children who were trying to choose a dog toy to buy. Who Bobbi assumed to be their parent stood behind with an amused smile, with a small, leashed terrier whimpering in their arms. The brunette animal turned its head, casting large, dopey eyes at her.
Bobbi strode past, smile appearing on her face. Cute.
She finally decided on buying a set of kitty pajamas, but it wasn’t for herself. One of her friends had recently got their first feline companion, and she wanted to welcome them to the club. Besides, animals always looked cuter in snuggly outfits.
Funnily enough, an important memory came to mind. As Bobbi headed into her favorite brunch place, she thought back to the first time that she had come to meet her superior, Agent—now Deputy Director—Maria Hill.
It was a snowy Sunday, and younger Bobbi Morse had just been deployed to Russia for the first time. Her heavy boots left behind deep footprints that led all the way back to the town. She shuddered, her companions not faring any better. As the freshmen unit, they advanced across a stone bridge, until they came across a sunbleached apartment complex.
Windows had been left shattered, with dozens of smoking holes drilled into the cold brick. Bobbi frowned, surveying the scene. To either side of her, SHIELD agents fanned out, drawing guns close to their face.
“What happened here?” Bobbi wondered. Her bladder felt clenched, and the hair on the back of her neck—buried beneath a very warm hood—stood on end.
“I did,” a proud voice announced.
The front door was kicked open, startling everyone, and a woman in a blue coat strode out, dragging a masked man behind her with little effort. Every soldier snapped to attention, and Bobbi did as well, once she realized who it was.
Agent Maria Hill, one of Fury’s favorites, and one that was rising through the ranks for her efficient methods.
“There was a firefight...ten minutes ago, maybe?” Agent Hill frowned before shrugging. “The other ones left, but I caught this one. He’s enough to tell us names.”
“What is his connection, madame?” One of the soldiers spoke, saluting Agent Hill.
“At ease,” Agent Hill said softly before continuing. “That’s for those with higher clearance to know. But thank you, all of you, for being here right now. Once you’ve secured the rest of the city, feel free to report back to base.”
“Of course,” was the reply, before moving to take the unconscious body from her hands.
Bobbi approached nervously, hands shaking. She was glad to use the cold as a guise for her nervousness. “C-Commander. Ma’am.”
“Yes?” Agent Hill cast eagle-like eyes upon Bobbi.
“Uh, I was wondering, if you have any advice for me,” Bobbi stammered. What a lame excuse, but it wasn’t completely untrue. Agent Hill was the object of admiration for many of SHIELD’s newest interns, and Bobbi was no different. It was just like a fan meeting their idol.
“I assume you’re new here? What am I saying, your colors dictate so,” Agent Hill spoke quickly, but pronounced each word with clarity, Bobbi noticed.
“Y-yes,” Bobbi fumbled her words. “This is my second mission.”
Agent Hill gave her a wink. “Well, the first few are always clean-up. Lets you get a feel of the field while not putting anyone in immediate danger. You also get to travel the world, so that’s all positives in my book.”
Bobbi nodded attentively, feeling better already. “That’s a relief.”
“Sure is.” Agent Hill tilted her head, listening in to her earpiece that was now blinking rapidly. “Sorry, newbie, I’ve got stuff to do. Tell you what, take care of this one for me. I found her back in the apartment.”
From inside her coat, Agent Maria Hill withdrew a small, dark-furred creature. Bobbi Morse took the frail cat into her hands, swallowing hard. Her limbs trembled with fear—she was holding something so delicate.
“This may be your second mission, but don’t slack off,” Agent Hill winked as she began to walk away. “That’s the secret, you know. Work hard, and rise fast.”
Bobbi nodded, but the words wouldn’t reach her until later. At that moment, she was focused on the small cat, who blinked back at her with curious, jaune eyes. She noticed patches of fur had gone missing, and brushed mittened hands over its twitching ears. The cat had obviously gone through a lot, and she suddenly felt a need to protect it.
“Don’t tell anyone, but I think I’ll call you Liho,” Bobbi whispered, caressing the animal. “From now on, we’ll find you a much better home than the one you had.”
Present day Bobbi was snapped back to reality as her phone buzzed, making the whole table tremble.
She sighed, sliding up as she raised a fork to her lips.
There was a crackle before the snarky tone of someone she knew too well greeted her. “What’s up, beauty?”
The crumbly crepe Bobbi had ordered shattered in her mouth, and she nearly choked. A swig from her cup washed it down. “What do you want?”
“You,” the voice teased.
“Stark,” Bobbi warned, fist tightening around the gift she had just bought.
“What? I’m completely serious. This is unlike everything—” His voice cut out abruptly. The silence was deafening.
“Stark? Come in?” She repeated, confusion crossing her face. Did he just hang up when he was the caller?
“—we’ve been through so far,” Stark suddenly continued, his voice breaking over growing static. “I’ve called all hands on deck, but Cho and a few others aren’t available.”
Bobbi sighed, setting the kitten pajamas to her side. The present now looked desolate, an article of clothing bound to be abandoned. She scoffed to herself, wondering if she would even see it again. Giving in, she ordered, “Send location. I’ll be right there.”
“Always knew we could count on our Mockingbird.”

We were legally wed over Zoom in our small NYC apartment. It was perfect.

ceremony in our NYC apartment
A few weeks ago I created a post asking for insight & tips from couples who'd hosted virtual weddings and guests who'd attended them. I received some great advice, so I'm sharing our experience in case it's helpful to anybody else planning a wedding in 2020.
The pandemic hits NYC
We cancel our Oct. wedding after it becomes clear Covid 19 is not going anywhere anytime soon. We stop all planning in late March, looking ahead to 2021.
Fast forward to late August -- we decide to keep our 10/10 date & get our legal affairs in order, still intending to have a reception next year. We start the virtual marriage license process via NY's project cupid and book an officiant through judges for love (at that point the only slot they have left for our date is at 11 a.m. WOMP).
I truly didn't think anyone aside from our parents would want to join, but we actually ended up getting a ton of interest from friends. Even still, the prospect of coordinating the logistics & tech seemed a bit daunting -- so much could go wrong. I waffled for a long time. But after hearing great experiences from other couples that held virtual weddings with guests, I sent out invites to our closest friends & family the weekend before the event. I included the Zoom link in the invite, but not the password.
Preparation
My sister offered moderate & M.C. the Zoom event, which was HUGELY helpful.
We loosely tested/practiced the setup a few times ahead of the day, but the official rehearsal helped prepare us the most.
I bought a whole lot of of white roses, eucalyptus & baby's breath (a combo that is so easy to arrange) to put in the backdrop along with some white orchids.
We reorganized the apartment to maximize lighting & arranged a lot of our plants in the backdrop to make the scene feel more lush & floral.
The night before the ceremony, my family ran through the plan from start to finish with us until we felt good about it. We made some tweaks to the original outline to make things feel more natural & added some humor.
Ultimately the schedule looked like:
  • 10:45 a.m. - 10:55 a.m. (our camera is off)
    • Guests are rolling in to a photo slideshow of us throughout the years set to music my sister is sharing from her screen.
    • As that's happening, my sister prompts folks to say hello & share their favorite memories of the couple in the chat
  • 10:55-11:00: Couple is "revealed" on camera. We say hello & give a short overview of the event
  • 11:00-11:20: Ceremony begins! Vows, kisses, dance, hurray!
  • 11:20-11:30: Cake cutting
  • 11:30-11:45: Toasts! And a speech from the couple. Guests can turn on their mics & say congrats
The Event
The ceremony was led by a retired New York supreme court justice and he officiated the wedding beautifully. He was lighthearted, yet did an excellent job making the occasion feel momentous.
Password is sent to guests at 10 a.m. & we start the meeting with my sister at 10:15 a.m. The waiting room feature is enabled in case anybody comes in early. At 10:40 a.m. my sister turns off our camera/mic, starts sharing the slideshow/playlist & begins admitting guests. The rest goes according to plan.
To say the wedding went beautifully is an understatement. Our guests laughed & cried & celebrated with us and it made us feel so loved. My sister took screenshots of attendees and nearly every single person shed tears at some point -- a few were sobbing. I think the music, the photos & asking everyone to reminisce & share memories with us helped set the mood. I'm also so glad we did vows & dancing.
Afterwards, people sent us the sweetest messages along with videos & pictures they'd shot of their screen with their phones and we could hear their sighs and their laughter and their cheering through their recordings, which was so so nice since we couldn't really see or hear folks during the actual ceremony.
Looking back, I do wish we'd slowed down a bit. We wanted to keep it short out of consideration for our guests, so all in all it was about 45 minutes, which felt a bit rushed. I also wish we'd followed through with an idea to ask guests to take photos of themselves to add to a shared album. I planned to take screenshots or record our screen through Quicktime to see our guests afterwards, but that got lost in the last minute rush.
My biggest takeaway? Our community is so important. Without them, it wouldn't have felt nearly as special of a day as it did. I'm so, so glad we were able to share it with them. It wasn't the ideal way to have our wedding, but I think it was as perfect as it could have been given the circumstances.
Some tips!
  • Have an MC/host who is familiar with Zoom & knows what they're doing
  • Test, test, test your technical setup & have a contingency plan in case things go wrong (we had a backup camera & mic)
  • Rehearse from start to finish
  • Invest in a decent microphone - if guests can't hear there's not much point to the whole thing
  • Record the ceremony - my sister luckily remembered to & it was amazing to re-watch
Other recommendations:
  • Rearrange your furniture & create a minimal backdrop with some decor.
    • I've seen gorgeous ideas with lights & wreaths that I think would have also been great.
  • Ask guests to contribute in the chat & however else you can that doesn't rely on them turning on their mic - that can quickly get chaotic and awkward
  • Take advantage of Zoom's music sharing feature!
    • It's a fantastic way to ensure key moments are set to a "soundtrack", which also injects a whole lot of emotion
Please, feel free to ask me any questions! I'm so thankful to those of you that offered advice, and I'm happy to do the same.

2020.10.13 19:02 gabpar What's the best place to talk with gay guys online?

What the title says, I'm looking to meet new people and I don't really care about the distance. Only thing I really ask for is to see a picture of something before talking.
I know there are apps like tinder, ok cupid, etc. But all the apps have a limit of people you can swipe or they don't let you search all over the world without paying. I'm also looking for discord groups or telegram groups as well just to chat.
Thanks.
