2020.11.23 17:13 rochallors "Gifted sum/deposit" for house purchase

Hello all, longtime lurker, first-time poster here. Looking for some advice on our current situation surrounding an argument over what constitutes a gifted sum for a house purchase.
My partner and I are in the process of purchasing a house in England, as cash buyers supported by family funds and our own savings.
A significant portion of the money that is going towards this purchase had been given to my partner by her parents, as maintenance funding for her general living expenses while at university and while searching for work as a graduate. These funds have been considered 'maintenance funds' or early inheritance from her parents, and have never been given for any specific purpose. These funds were transferred to my partner in a few different transactions from 2017-2019, and have since been partly used to pay rent, pay university tuition fees, buy a car, support the grocery shopping, book some holidays, etc. What was not used has been put into various bonds and savings accounts, all under my partner's name in various UK financial institutions.
My partner now wishes to use these savings and bonds accounts, plus the interest she has accumulated on them, to finance her share of the house purchase. We have presented these financial statements to our solicitors during the conveyancing process to comply with anti money laundering regulations. However, our solicitors are insisting that these funds are considered a 'gifted sum', and are asking for my partner's parents to sign a declaration that these funds are gifted for the express purpose of house buying, and to present a large amount of financial documentation detailing the origins of these funds dating back beyond 2017.
Quite simply, we disagree with our solicitors that these funds are a gifted sum. Most have been under my partner's sole control for over 3 years, and even the most recent transaction from 2019 was given more than a year ago, with the money put to work under my partner's name only. We are uncomfortable with asking her parents to sign a declaration that would be patently false: the funds were not gifted for this particular purchase. To sign this declaration would also have further legal implications surrounding inheritance tax, that we do not wish to become entangled with.
How can money from 1-3 years ago, given as maintenance funds and controlled by my partner ever since, be considered a gifted sum for a house purchase? Are we in the wrong here, or are our solicitors being overzealous with their insistence that this is a gifted sum?
Looking for some impartial advice, many thanks for reading!

2020.11.23 07:59 rockyrosie Let's discuss Fred Weasley for a moment...

I hope you read this and engage! <3
I have some curiosities I want to pick my fellow Potterhead's, well...heads about. Say Fred did live, I was inspired by an earlier post I made today, there are so many things I wonder about his life following the Battle of Hogwarts.
There is one comment reply I made about how I intend to write Fred's survival in my new fanfic, replaced with the obvious demise of Percy lmao, and now I need everyone's two-cents about where to go from there.
This was the comment I made under someone replying to my post:
I kinda thought the line of which Fred’s last words were quite interchangeable, perhaps this:
Percy was duelling the minister and threw it out there that he’s resigning...
“You’re joking Perce!” shouts Fred. “You actually are joking, Perce...I don’t think I’ve heard you joke since you were—“
the explosion happens, except one thing is different...
There was dust and rubble surrounding him, the ringing in his ears only ceased when he, face down on the floor attempting to wiggle out from under a large piece of rock, turned his head and only saw his brother’s lifeless hand protruding from a fallen section of the castle wall. He trailed off his words in a horrifying state of disbelief, his body felt hollow and burning hot.
The rest of the body had been crushed and buried, then the smallest river of blood began slithering its way into a crack in the stone floor from the mangled pile that held two. Only one of them was his brother.
The Weasley man felt like a helpless child while his eyes filled with tears and his heart overflowed with the black tar of boundless grief. Fred had to lay his head on the floor and cover his face so the death eaters that ran by didn’t look twice at him, forever laying there until the footsteps of three shoes sets he knew to be safe came into view.
So here are my questions (you don't have to answer all obviously, I just wanted a broad spectrum haha):
  1. Marriage (I ask because of his laid-back marriage quote in DH), to be a cool bachelor uncle, or anti-marriage and just a 'your devotion is enough for me' life partner?
  2. Follow-up questions if you reckon marriage: Angelina, muggle, or someone else to love (gay or otherwise)? Where does that leave his George (G) if Fred gets Angie? Would the twins have a joint wedding with their respective spouses?
  3. What would G name his first child/son then? Percy? Still Fred ll?
  4. Do you think he even wanted kids? (sorry I am part of the Child-Free sub lmao) Would he include Percy's name in his child's name?
  5. Would he live above WWW in the flat w/ G or settle in a home on the outskirts like the Burrow? Perhaps land he shares with G or just on his own while G is at the flat? Vise-versa?
  6. How do you imagine him as a young adult, middle-aged, elderly? Furthermore, if not dying in battle, when, how and why?
  7. Injuries?! Did he suffer major or minor? Scars? Disfigurations? Mental wounds? etc.
  8. Please feel free to add and answer your own questions you would propose! As many as you want!
*Sorry for typos and such if there are any, I'm just a really fast typer\*

2020.11.23 05:24 sex_yoda 45 [M4F] Divorced Stag Seeking Curious Single Woman Interested in Becoming a Hotwife or Vixen #Houston

Single / Divorced Stag looking to meet like minded women who enjoy being shared.
My last three long term relationships were of the Stag/Vixen variety. Sometimes we would dabble in the Cuck/Hotwife dynamic. My BDSM profile has me listed as a sensual sadist, roperigger, I enjoy the technical aspects of D/s.
I am a successful, affluent corporate executive slowly transitioning into a silver fox Zaddy/Daddy phase of life.
In a previous life I was your dorky IT professional who enjoyed BDSM meetups, munches and RenFest After Hours on nights and weekends. I would talk your ears off about things that interest me and simply walk away from conversations if it did not. I wore discount shirts, dockers, and black sneakers.
I was diagnosed with a very mild Asperger's syndrome five years ago which explained a lot of things. In addition to therapy I made the investment to hire a life/professional coach who helped me with my personal brand at work which has been a game changer. She's taught me a lot of soft skills needed to succeed in the business world and how to read a room. She told me to coach my kids Little League team so that everyone know's I'm a good father, mentor underprivileged kids so that everyone knows I'm a good human being, she taught me how to advocate anti-racist and anti-sexist politics at work and advocate for people who are not like me so that I could transition to leadership track, told me which barbershop to go to and which haircut to get (I did Supercuts from age 10 to 40), how to buy a bespoke suit and handmade shoes and trade in my Corolla for a Tesla.
On the plus side it allowed me to jump from middle management to executive track, it gave me a newfound sense of confidence and prowess and female colleagues and interns will flirt endlessly with me, and many have called me a "low-key Daddy". At lifestyle events I'm not longer the Duff or the load that the other wife has to "take-one-for-the-team" for her husband, single women would approach us in clubs and parties and talk to me directly and with interest.
On the bad side, my then wife hated the new me and filed for divorce.
Now while I've enjoyed my newfound bachelorhood for a year now, I think I'm ready for something more serious but am having a hard time finding the right partner while being discreet. I'm not interested in a temporary thing or even a typical long term arrangement. While I'm reluctant and hesitant to get married again, I know in my heart that I won't ever be getting divorced again.
Ideal woman would be a gorgeous high-sex drive woman who enjoys having sex every day with multiple partners and lovers all the while enjoying all of the perks, benefits, and privilege of being a corporate wife (think Donna Reed, Junior League, and Audubon Society). This isn't for everyone but for the right woman it would check off everything she could ever want. I'm open minded on race, body type would be athletic with curves, natural breasts, non-smoker, education would be college educated, masters preferred. I click well with ambitious women and so while you do not need a high profile career, a track record of volunteerism and community involvement is a plus.
I'm asking a lot but also offering a lot.
Live in the Houston Heights but can entertain in Downtown, Galleria area or City Centre.

2020.11.23 05:07 Fflewddur_Fflam_ Would you want a not-completely-evil, good-intentioned, morally-gray Bond villain?

A "chaotic" villain instead of a truly "evil' one. Could it even work?
-The villain would be either a Robin Hood/socialist thief type or an activist/hacktivist trying to achieve a goal for his people. He could want to free poorer countries of British, American and Russian influence, or he could rob the English banks, treasuries and corporations and covertly divert the funds to the needy. This makes him an enemy of the state and Bond is assigned to take him down. One idea is to have the villain be a rival/foil for Q, forcing Bond and Q to work as partners in the field to stop this "Anti-Q".
-Unlike traditional Bond villains, this one does not kill, but has an arsenal of nonlethal traps and gadgetry. He'll spare Bond's life, but will imprison Bond, and will not let MI6 stop him.
-Also unlike most Bond villains, this one cares about his henchmen. He is horrified when Bond kills them and is even shown attending their funerals afterward. After Bond causes his base to begin exploding, the villain abandons his plan and tries to evacuate his surviving henchmen to safety.
-At some point in the movie he will save Bond's life. One idea: Bond ruins the villain's plan and causes the base to self-destruct, but an explosion traps Bond under a large piece of metal and is near a prybar, just of of reach. The villain has one more chance to salvage his plan, but to do so he'd have to let his henchmen all die in the fire. Ultimately, he chooses his henchmen over his plan, leading their evacuation to safety. Along the way, they encounter the trapped Bond, and the villain tells his henchmen to escape while he deals with unfinished business. He picks up the prybar, and looks like he's about to bash Bond's head in for ruining his plans, but instead uses the prybar to lift the metal piece and helps Bond to his feet. They escape the exploding base together and the villain surrenders.
-Because he spares or saves Bond multiple times, Bond returns the favor by arresting instead of killing him at the end. Maybe the villain could return in future Bond films as a reluctant assistant to Bond's crew, providing his expertise in exchange for a reduced prison sentence, and might even gain Bond's trust eventually.

2020.11.23 04:31 horsesdontstop305 HSV2+ discordant couple success stories

I was just recently diagnosed with gHSV2 a few weeks ago. Still going through the motions and obviously coming to terms with what this means for my life moving forward. I'm single currently and taking a break from dating/sex. I just wanted to get an idea of how many people out there are in discordant relationships and have successfully managed to not transmit herpes to their partner. And were you on anti virals/using condoms? It's hard not to feel like I wont eventually end up hurting someone I love and care about.

2020.11.23 03:46 pearpouch pre/during/post medical abortion, story & tips

i first off wanted to say how much this community really helped & scared me, haha! i fell into the rabbit hole of reading & rereading everyone’s horror & success stories. i had to come to terms that yes i was full of anxieties, guilt, relief, shame & all those feelings that come with this whole abortion world. there are a lot of scary abortion stories that people yes have gone through which is very traumatic, but some of those stories are posted my pro life protesters to scare you. this community helped me realize how normal abortion is, yes i am pro choice but when it comes down to your own choice it sucks & is really sad. i will always be pro choice because what i experienced with this abortion was freeing that i could even make the choice, we are lucky. since the beginning of time women were always trying to get rid of unwanted pregnancies. so the fact that i went somewhere with so many wonderful supportive nurses & staff was so comforting to my heart.
PRE: i am a 22(f) & i have been with my boyfriend for almost 5 years. i was not on birth control due to being previously on zoloft, & he was not using protection. we take full responsibility for unprotected sex which eventually led to me being pregnant. i have always had the most regular period, every 27 days since i started my period when i was 13 i have had my period. october 24th i was eating an egg, & i totally randomly had this intense wave off nausea which i never get, & i ran time the toilet & threw up everything i ate. i wasn’t even technically late. i took a test just to be sure & it came out negative so i just thought maybe it was nerves that brought on the vomit. the next following days i had the regular pms symptoms sore boobs, light cramps & intense cravings (or so i thought) the night before i was supposed to start my period a friend of mine took me to sonic to get their legendary tots! yum! & i saw an advertisement for a cheeseburger & an intense wave of I NEED THAT NOW came over me which is weird because i haven’t had meat in almost 8 years.... i ignored the craving & headed home. i ended my night with a shower, when i got out of the shower my nipples were so so so sensitive, and at that moment knew i was pregnant i had the gut instinct. the next day i went to the store & bought a test, peed & the results came back positive so fast that i wasn’t even done peeing. i was freaking out, shaking & crying just out of the “what do i do?” feeling, it is a scary weird feeling if it’s something you aren’t expecting. i called my partner & said “welp i’m fucking pregnant” he was very calm & supportive on getting an abortion, yes we do want kids but not now. here is the kicker, the day after i found out i was pregnant i was supposed to be on a plane to hawaii to visit my brother for 10 days. though i tried to stay calm, i had the worst case of morning sickness on the way to the airport that next morning, that basically set the tone for my whole trip. yes hawaii is beautiful being pregnant took over! i was sleeping all day, only could eat plain croissants & i got so car sick. i was ready to go home the second i got there which is unfortunate :/ i started feeling just so depressed being there & everything was reminding me of being pregnant with a baby i wasn’t ready in anyway to have. i ended up booking my flight home & the day after i got home, my partner & i headed to Planned Parenthood. I decided to take the medical route, it seemed more natural, less invasive & i could be in the comfort of my home. i have really bad anxiety being in any sort of doctors/dentist office, im terrified of needles & just anything medical. due to covid i had to go in by myself & that made me even more anxious. i walked in & immediately felt like i was in a comforting , nonjudgmental & supportive environment. everyone was so mice & warm. i filled out paper work, & was quickly called to the back to get my ultrasound, the lady was so nice & gentle. i told her i was lightly freaking out & just generally anxious about everything. i asked her if she had ever gone through a medical abortion, she said no. she finished my ultrasound, i was 6 weeks & 1 day, i told her i didn’t want to see the screen, but when i got up to put my clothes on i saw it, it broke my heart & but also filled my heart. i went to the next room to talk & answer some questions, the woman was seriously an angel. she could calm any storm. i had to get my finger pricked, i started crying out of fear & just everything before she even did pricked me. i asked if i could hold her arm & she just nodded & proceeded. as she was walking me through the steps, i expressed to her how scared i was about the pain because i read so many stories. she asked if she could bring someone else into talk with me who had gone through the same thing. angel number 2 walked in the door, she was a few years older than me, so incredibly sweet. we had the same tattoos almost the same name & the same views. she was 5 weeks & 6 days when she had her medical abortion, so we were about the same time which brought me so much comfort. both nurses told me the process & that i would be okay. i took the 1st pill & felt a little sad but relieved.
DURING: 3 hours after i took the 1st pill, i had an insane wave of nausea that lasted all through the night, i threw up 2 times & just felt awful. i ended up getting some rest, i woke up so anxious the next day. i was instructed to take the 2nd pills at 1:30pm. i picked up the pain meds they had prescribed me 800mg ibuprofen & hydrocodone, & tried to eat something. i took the pain & anti nausea meds at 1 so they could have time to kick in. i put the pills in my cheek to dissolve, i had the heating pad on high, the essential oils going, all the harry potter films ready to go, gatorade, & some of my favorite gummies. i was in comfy clothes, & a really comforting environment in my home with my partner. 1 hour went by & i started feeling cramps, light cramps. i went to the bathroom $ blood was coming out along with some clots. i was constantly up & down, from the bed to the toilet. i would hop in the hot shower & just sit there with a gatorade if the cramps got bad. it came in waves, some really intense cramps with bigger but not huge clots & some light manageable cramps. the heating pad truly is a must. my partner gave me so many words of encouragement, & back rubs. when the meds wore off the cramps did get bad, my worst was about a 7/10, but it only lasted for about 10 minutes. i re upped on my pain meds, & laid back down. i documented the time & temperature & amount of meds i had anytime anything changed just incase. it was about 9:30 & the cramps were down to a 5/10, i wanted to be able get some rest so i tried to smoke some weed, which instantly helped with any nausea & diarrhea i had. i changed my maxi pads every few hours not because they were full of blood, they never even got soaked, but just to keep everything clean down there. i fell asleep around 12, pain was down to a 3/10.
POST: when i woke up i was still bleeding & there were still clots but nothing bad. the cramps & low grade fever were still lingering, i laid in bed all day, drank gatorade & ate soup. i still have some days ahead of light cramps & bleeding. all in all it was painful yes but i’m happy that i had the right supplies & support. i’m thankful for that. i will keep everyone updated.
please be gentle with yourself & your body if you are going through this process it isn’t easy but you are strong & full of light! you got this <3 you aren’t alone

ABOUT ME
Hello I am Screams, the owner of Continuity Craft. I started playing Minecraft in 2012 and since 2017 I have been a professional builder employed by Entity Builds. Entity builds is an official partner of Minecraft. I have worked with the Entity Builds Build team for the past few years as a master builder specializing in organic design. I am not currently working for Entity Builds, as I am taking a break from building to bring you Continuity Craft. Throughout my years working in creative, I have been fascinated with the creation of master-builds in survival mode. This is why I have created this server, I want to create a community where this is possible. I hope you give us a try, we need dedicated players who will contribute to our community.
DEDICATED MASTER BUILDERS and MASTERS OF SURVIVAL WANTED, DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

We focus on community by always taking feedback from our players and always trying to improve their experience.
LOOKING FOR AMAZING BUILDERS!
Continuity Craft doesn't have land claim... How are you safe from griefers?
We have a custom coded jailing plugin that keeps all rule breakers at spawn in a displayable jail. There are public executions which all players can teleport to and see when a player is decided guilty of hacking. This plugin is very cool and is a great incentive not to hack!

Continuity Craft's Mission Statement and Transparency
We are going to provide you a great experience through vanilla Minecraft. That is our goal. We will never disgrace the server by adding in any plugins that are game-changing besides our few edits to accommodate our many active players.
Here are our necessary edits and plugins
Staff and Ranks
On our server you an equal member of the community, everything we know you deserve to know. We do have an option to donate, and we have donator ranks. There is no in game items or commands provided to these players. Donators head's are placed at spawn and they are given a colored name.
Well then what do donators get?
Donators receive a colored name based on the rank they provide. MVP is orange and VIP is light blue. We have two ranks:
MVP: $5.00 monthly
VIP: $2.50 monthly
The prices of these ranks are capped very low because we do not want a large amount of money from any singular player. We want the experience to be as low cost as possible for as many players as possible so by employing this donation system most players can play for free and those that do wish to support us do not have to pay much. We will always share how much we have received in donations and even how we are deciding to spend it.
In addition, we are completely transparent about any dilemmas regarding media influencers, high ranked staff, or any fundamental changes within the server.
Your Voice Matters!
Any changes to the server will be run through our community. No changes through executive decision will be made. The owner and staff agree that what is best for the server is what the majority decides.
Big changes will be broadcasted to the community and feedback through polling and vocal opinions will be heavily considered.
So it's a vanilla server, what is the big deal? What makes Continuity Craft different?
Continuity Craft is a vanilla server. That being said, what makes Continuity Craft the best place to spend your time is due to how our community operates. The rules on our land claims are completely unique and you have not seen a server that successfully operates under the same parameters.
Join our discord and apply we would love to have you! Cannot wait to see you there.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

2020.11.23 02:01 RedditSuggestName 38 [F4M] #SoCal4Socal (locals only) - LTR. I'm looking for my guy. He'll love cats and dogs, want marriage and kids.

TL;DR: BBW, loves Disneyland, TV and her pets (2 cats and 1 dog); looking for a fellow DDF guy, who wants to get married and have kids in a couple years, too.
My dream is to find the whole 9 yards: friendship, fall in love, get married, raise kids together, with our pets; then we retire someplace warm or with a beach view. Does that sound good to anyone else?
I'm looking for a serious, long term, monogamous relationship.
I hope to meet someone with some similar interests, so we have something in common, but not someone exactly the same as me, because I don't think that'd be interesting or make for a good partnership.
We’d be partners that help each other out, making life more enjoyable along the way.
If my long post is any indication, I’m a chatty texter; I respond as soon as I can. I will send things that remind me of you. Tell you how my day went, will want to hear about yours. I miss waking up to a good morning and ending the day with a good night text.
Apparently I have to say this explicitly. Only message if you are single and are also looking for commitment.
Locals only, because I do want to meet; COVID safe of course.
Be prepared to video chat. I have no desire to be catfished.
If you're allergic to cats and/or dogs, please don't message me. I know from experience, it's not going to go anywhere.
THE LONG POST:
I'll always have indoor pets in my life.
Let's see, I've watched: Ozark, Narcos, Narcos Mexico, Dead to Me, Legacies, Living with Yourself, Preacher, Fleabag, Silicon Valley, Twin Peaks (old, movie and new), Ray Donovan, On Becoming a God in Central FL, Penny Dreadful, The Umbrella Academy, Perry Mason, The Boys, Atlanta, What We Do in the Shadows (still need to watch the movie; it's not on any of my streaming services right now), The Orville, Atypical, rewatching Supernatural.
Honestly, if there isn't at least a plan to meet within a month of talking, I'm out. I'm not looking for a penpal.
(I’m not a cook, so eat out at like Chipotle and poke bowl places.
I like going to fancy restaurants a couple times a year.
I’ll only go to concerts if I’ve got a good seat. This usually means buying the ticket the moment they go on sale. I’m not paying scalper prices.
For travel, I like to do it as economical as possible. Though when I went to Europe I had the fold down seat on the airplane; no way was I flying 17 hours in economy. But it wasn’t the fanciest seat either; it was the middle version.
I like staying at fancy hotels on occasion, but book well in advance to get a good deal, which is about $300/night.
I have a Disneyland annual pass, I do get a cheap hotel there on occasion, when I can be there for 2 days in a row; doggy goes with me. Hopefully you’ll have or want a pass too; if you don’t like going, fine, but help buy them for our kids).
We’re adults here; adults pay their own way.
I am NOT looking to be a sugar baby and won’t be someone else’s sugar momma.
Only a guy willing to to get an STD test and wear condoms gets to touch me.
I'm not into any pain, only pleasure, for both parties.
No, I’m not looking for anything casual or a FWB. No we would not see if we’re sexually compatible out on the first few dates.
Sex is an important part of a lasting relationship, but it’s not the only thing. We have to click elsewhere before we get to sex.
Honestly, if we can't have sex at your place, then this isn't going to work out. I'm extremely tired of talking to guys who have all these seemingly reasonable parent/sibling reasons why I can't go to their place. I've had enough. It now sounds to my like guys that are married and trying to find a mistress. I’m sorry if that isn’t you. I tried keeping an open mind, but I can’t do that anymore.
I love the idea of each of us having a private space to go to if we just need some alone time. I think that’ll be important when we have kids, and are 10+ years into this.
Honestly, the thought of sharing a bathroom again terrifies me. I think that if it was the social norm for everyone to have their own bathroom, the divorce rate would go way down.
I am looking forward to cuddling before we fall asleep and when we wake up, and having sex every day, ha
I do need to be with someone who is okay with my animals sleeping in the room. My dog sleeps on his own side of my king sized bed. One cat usually sleeps on her own, but about 5 am, insists on sleeping on my feet. The other cat loves is a loaner. He sleep downstairs usually; on occasion he’ll sleep next to the dog.
Hopefully we can find some kind of compromise; maybe move to a duplex or we'd have a very big home, with a master bedroom, with attached his and her bathrooms.
Thank you for reading. I know this was long, but I know what I want. Has anyone seen the great early 2010s show Happy Endings? There’s a quote that I think describes what I’m looking for. Someone to realize: “I found a woman who was so sure of what she wanted, and she wanted me.” Brad to wife Jane, S2E18 ‘Party of Six.’
In the subject line, please put your eye color. This helps me weed through the guys who only claim to read my post. And if you really want me to respond, then mention things that we have in common. I’ve included more than enough things to kick off a conversation.
Those who need NOT apply:

Let's see, I've watched: Ozark, Narcos, Narcos Mexico, Dead to Me, Legacies, Living with Yourself, Preacher, Fleabag, Silicon Valley, Twin Peaks (old, movie and new), Ray Donovan, On Becoming a God in Central FL, Penny Dreadful, The Umbrella Academy, Perry Mason, The Boys, Atlanta, What We Do in the Shadows (still need to watch the movie; it's not on any of my streaming services right now), The Orville, Atypical, rewatching Supernatural.
Honestly, if there isn't at least a plan to meet within a month of talking, I'm out. I'm not looking for a penpal.
(I’m not a cook, so eat out at like Chipotle and poke bowl places.
I like going to fancy restaurants a couple times a year.
I’ll only go to concerts if I’ve got a good seat. This usually means buying the ticket the moment they go on sale. I’m not paying scalper prices.
For travel, I like to do it as economical as possible. Though when I went to Europe I had the fold down seat on the airplane; no way was I flying 17 hours in economy. But it wasn’t the fanciest seat either; it was the middle version.
I like staying at fancy hotels on occasion, but book well in advance to get a good deal, which is about $300/night.
I have a Disneyland annual pass, I do get a cheap hotel there on occasion, when I can be there for 2 days in a row; doggy goes with me. Hopefully you’ll have or want a pass too; if you don’t like going, fine, but help buy them for our kids).
We’re adults here; adults pay their own way.
I am NOT looking to be a sugar baby and won’t be someone else’s sugar momma.
Only a guy willing to to get an STD test and wear condoms gets to touch me.
I'm not into any pain, only pleasure, for both parties.
No, I’m not looking for anything casual or a FWB. No we would not see if we’re sexually compatible out on the first few dates.
Sex is an important part of a lasting relationship, but it’s not the only thing. We have to click elsewhere before we get to sex.
Honestly, if we can't have sex at your place, then this isn't going to work out. I'm extremely tired of talking to guys who have all these seemingly reasonable parent/sibling reasons why I can't go to their place. I've had enough. It now sounds to my like guys that are married and trying to find a mistress. I’m sorry if that isn’t you. I tried keeping an open mind, but I can’t do that anymore.
I love the idea of each of us having a private space to go to if we just need some alone time. I think that’ll be important when we have kids, and are 10+ years into this.
Honestly, the thought of sharing a bathroom again terrifies me. I think that if it was the social norm for everyone to have their own bathroom, the divorce rate would go way down.
I am looking forward to cuddling before we fall asleep and when we wake up, and having sex every day, ha
I do need to be with someone who is okay with my animals sleeping in the room. My dog sleeps on his own side of my king sized bed. One cat usually sleeps on her own, but about 5 am, insists on sleeping on my feet. The other cat loves is a loaner. He sleep downstairs usually; on occasion he’ll sleep next to the dog.
Hopefully we can find some kind of compromise; maybe move to a duplex or we'd have a very big home, with a master bedroom, with attached his and her bathrooms.
Thank you for reading. I know this was long, but I know what I want. Has anyone seen the great early 2010s show Happy Endings? There’s a quote that I think describes what I’m looking for. Someone to realize: “I found a woman who was so sure of what she wanted, and she wanted me.” Brad to wife Jane, S2E18 ‘Party of Six.’
In the subject line, please put your eye color. This helps me weed through the guys who only claim to read my post. And if you really want me to respond, then mention things that we have in common. I’ve included more than enough things to kick off a conversation.

2020.11.23 01:50 IMAWNIT Tournament Season 13 Meta Analysis

Hi everyone we spent lots of time tracking information this season and posting it on the wiki seen here:
We also have Season 11&12 in depth too found here as well, I will do my best to compare the two season to see the changes.
https://realm-defense-hero-legends-td.fandom.com/wiki/Meta#Season_11_Meta.2FAnalysis
I would like to post my findings and summarize for those who are interested. It is long sadly and maybe some info is not new. But those who like some analysis that may help them with decision-making may enjoy this. Any comments are welcome!
Meta heroes are ranked by tiers and is very hard to consistently rank them in that way. However you can look back at historical Seasons and see which heroes are used outside of their blessed week as we track them.
Three big changes this season vs the past:
  1. We track everything but only discussing meta in relation to the highest league at the time; which is mostly going to be Legendary only.
  2. We count blessed heroes now. With the inclusion of Azura, Leif and Caldera (normally rotated among these three), we lost Helios and Yan so blessed heroes matter even more than ever so we are counting them now.
  3. We also included the number of times the hero presented itself in the top ten league; so not just a 1 count for showing up but how many times it showed up on top ten league scoreboards.
For example: Bolton is blessed. This would mean if entire leaderboard had Bolton, Yan + Koi I would have counted Bolton, Yan, Koi + Obsidian as having 10 counts each. If somehow the leadership board had Yan/Raida split evenly, they each get 5 counts.
The table below will indicate how many weeks theses heroes were used in the top league, whether the hero was blessed and the overall appearances in top ten in the top league.
Lastly: this is for information purposes and tracking, many factors impact the top teams 1) which league 2) which week 3) the blessed hero (potential synergies) and 4) the map.
  1. Leagues: lower leagues tend to not use meta heroes (not accessible to many players since they are generally newer players) thus players can advance/promote using non-meta heroes
  2. Week: deceptively, as weeks go on, each league "generally" becomes easier to advance/promote as the more senior players have moved on already; therefore you may see non-meta heroes work even in same maps that would fail in higher leagues with similar maps. Sometimes the blessed hero is not even required (ie. Masamune). And as such, more hero combinations are possible especially in lower leagues; this skewing the number of weeks a hero can be used. Which is why the main focus of this review is for higher leagues.
  3. Blessed hero: certain heroes basically force you to use their synergy partners (example: Bolton will almost always see Yan R6 and Koi R6 as their team)
  4. Map: some maps play nicer to certain heroes so you may see them due to the actual map

Hero Weeks Used in Top League (mostly Legendary) Blessed (Y/N) Count of Appearances in Top League (top ten) (mostly Legendary)
Koi 10 N 67
Raida 7 N 43
Shamiko 7 N 39
Narlax 6 Y 54
Connie 6 Y 39
Yan 3 N 29
Smoulder 3 Y 21
Bolton 2 Y 20
Obsidian 2 Y 20
Leif 2 Y 20
Lancelot 2 Y 18
Azura 1 Y 10
Fee 1 Y 10
Sethos 1 Y 10
Caldera 1 Y 10
Hogan 1 Y 10
Efrigid 1 Y 10
Mabyn 1 Y 8
Masamune 1 Y 7
Cyra 1 N 5
Elara 1 N 1
Helios 0 N 0
*Note the counts don't add up to the possible 450 total (10 spent x 3 heroes x 15 weeks) because some cheaters were caught so their stats were not included.

2020.11.23 01:05 Throwra_sup As you got older, did you have to leave certain people behind and what made you choose to do this?

Back as a teenager and in my early 20s, I was a complete socialite. I thrived on making new friends and still enjoy doing it now. I used to be the person that knew everyone in the cafeteria. I could go from table to table each day and be able to strike up a conversation with anyone.
However, after 25 or even 30, life begins to shift dramatically and change. You begin meeting way less people. People begin disappearing into the woodwork because they've found a partner, or they have kids. Some unfortunately die tragically young.
Others end up becoming new people - sometimes better, but often worse. They get into drugs, or become alcoholics, or become extremely toxic people. I've watched in real time people go from being the popular jock who had tons of friends to being a total recluse who never leaves their house and is now extremely anti social and aggressive.
Growing up and becoming an adult is realizing that if you're doing it right, you can outgrow people you once were immensely close to very quickly. Being an adult is also realizing that you have to cut ties with certain people because they could potentially drag you down.
I swear this is the bittersweet part of adulthood that is rarely discussed in depth.
To those who left people behind, what did they do that made you choose to do so?

2020.11.23 00:39 livinglifejustfine9 Ice and serial cheating

Looking for some advice for my partner and I. We have been together for 7yrs. I recently discovered he has been an addict our entire relationship. He has also been cheating as long, approx 80 women!
He has been clean for 2 months. He has a team of doctors, counsellors assisting him. We have started counselling together. He has been more open and honest than ever. My hope is that if he stays clean, he will stay faithful.
He has says the drugs made him cheat, I am trying to believe that. He told me pre drugs (10+yr addict) he had pre ejaculation issues, made him feel less of a man. He is taking anti depressants which coincidentally has the opposite effect, but he worries of how his libido and performance will now be without drugs. I worry too. I worry fatigue or libido could lead to a relapse, a relapse may lead to cheating.
I would really appreciate hearing from people who can share their story of sex and ice, especially if it led to cheating and if getting clean helped. We are still investigating things like self esteem, sex addiction with his psych, but these specialists take time and this issue effects me everyday. Thanks so much for any (helpful) advice

2020.11.22 23:15 Rossrox Advice needed, parent with allergy

So, lockdown rules pending, I’m expecting to travel to visit my parents with my partner at Christmas, we’ll be bringing our year old cat. We won’t be staying for too long, 2-3 days or so.
My mother is allergic (she insists we bring him however and we would love to as it does make things more difficult not doing so), she says she will be fine and she’ll just take an anti histamine, he will also be shut off from half the house so he won’t have complete free roam.
I was just wondering if there’s anything we can do to mitigate the allergy further? Perhaps there are some food supplements or something along those lines, it’s not something I’ve ever had to think about before.
Has anyone been in a similar situation?
Thanks!

2020.11.22 23:08 happygocrazee I've had social anxiety for as long as I can remember. Anti-depressants didn't help, anti-anxiety meds had too many side effects. For me, turns out it was ADHD the whole time.

My social anxiety has never been as bad as I know it is for many others here on this sub. But it was definitely enough to become a fairly constant problem in my life. Everyone who knew me considered me a total flake for how often I'd cancel plans at the last minute, or just ghost entirely because I was too afraid to let them know. My excuses were always poor lies, because even after I was too anxious to admit I had just been too anxious.
I also went through occasional but very intense bouts of depression. Knowing the two were often linked, I took anti-depressants (Viibryd at first, highly NOT recommended, then Wellbutrin, highly recommended) and it helped, a little I guess? Ar least being too depressed to leave the couch was no longer an issue, but I'd still feel that fear every time it came to leave the house to make good on plans, or call someone up to help occupy a bored and lonely evening. I took Buspirone in addition as the anxiety persisted and even got worse, but it ended up having too many side effects to be worth it. And besides, the effect was subtle, at best. I still had a lot of the same problems.
As I balanced out on Wellbutrin, I kind of have up trying to treat the anxiety. Through therapy, I learned to just kind of cope with it. I accepted the times I felt anxious, stopped beating myself up for it, and let myself feel content staying inside alone when it felt like too much to go out. I thought this would be my equilibrium.
But it wasn't! Through the help of a partner and, again, therapy, I discovered that I had pretty severe untreated ADHD. I won't go too into it here, but basically once the seal was broken on considering that as an option, it was almost frustrating that I hadn't seen it before. I stopped the Wellbutrin and got on Adderral, as they can allegedly have a negative interaction.
Almost immediately, I not only felt what was left of my depression leave completely (mostly a lingering apathy), but I'm noticing now that my anxiety is COMPLETELY gone. I have a confidence I only remember feeling on my highest days, a total rarity. I can reach out easily, go out without fear of any kind, and once I'm there I no longer hit that wall where you suddenly feel overcome with the need to leave. My anxiety used to make me feel literally on dumber on my worst days. I'd be around people and just have nothing to say, like my mind was only operating at partial capacity. Not anymore! I always feel like I'm running at 100%. I feel... normal. The things I run into now are the same as any neurotypical person experiences.
Anyway, the only reason I'm writing this is just to say it can get better. For some, the anti-depressants or anti-anxiety meds may do the trick. But if they're not quite getting you where you want to be, don't lose hope! The solution may come from somewhere you have yet to have considered. If you can afford it, get into therapy, get a psychologist. It's amazing to have resources like this sub that help normalize what you're feeling and maybe even help give you tools to get by, but it also doesn't have to be like this.
I wish everyone the best on their journeys. You are valid, you are worthy, you are amazing, wherever you are on that journey. It's time for me to unsubscribe from this sub. I hope you get to soon as well 💙

2020.11.22 23:05 melonheadsmom Medical Advice needed - Chronic pancreatitis, RA, OBGYN issues - having issues communicating with new physicians

I have moved several times over the past few years. I am from Texas. I have a number of chronic health conditions that I’ve had either most of my life or ones that resulted during and after pregnancy. When I was in Texas I had specialists that were appropriately and effectively treating said conditions. I moved to rural Missouri. I was unable to find physicians and my primary care was a nurse practitioner. Slowly my health began declining. I have been treating myself either with OTC and home remedies as well as getting medications from Mexico. (The ones that are available in Mex). I had to change jobs due to the joint pain. I then moved to the Milwaukee, WI area. I have been going to this Froedert medical college hospital & it’s been one of the most bizarre and disappointing experiences. I go in and give them my history and they essentially say, “hmmm well I don’t agree with what your doctors said. Sucks to be in pain. Can’t help you. Go see a pain doctor.” And label it as “localized pain disorder.” On my medical chart. Conditions they don’t seem to dispute; hypertension, digestive issues, and acknowledge that I have chronic joint pain and some other issues, but.... In Texas I was seeing a rheumatologist for RA. I was being treated.
I have a GI doctor. I spent years in and out of hospitals before I was diagnosed with Chronic pancreatitis. (Via EUS at two Different hospitals) All I am asking for is pancreatic enzymes (b/c I get so sick if I don’t take them. After I left TX I had a stock pile of Creon and was taking it sparingly. I am aware that is not the best way but it was all I had.) I get zofran, lomotil, and dicitel (anti-spasmodic) from Mexico as my partner’s parents are physicians in Mexico. Those drugs can make the worst of it subside, but I need the enzymes to be stable & healthy. I DRASTICALLY changed my diet to help myself, but even with no fat careful diet I can have flares and it’s VERY painful. (Low purine for the joint pain and low fat for the CP) There are days the pancreas pain knocks me down and I have sit for 5-10 minutes before I can even move. With that said, I went to see the GI doctor in Milwaukee and he says, “oh well I’m not sure who told you have CP, but your pancreas has to be not functioning 90% to “TRULY” have CP, so I don’t think that’s what you have. Stop eating dairy.“ I explained to him I already cut lactose out of my diet just to give my stomach a rest, but that I would cut ALL dairy out. However, I still need the enzymes. I have blood in my stool, so he insisted I schedule a colonoscopy. I don’t trust him though. After his total disregard for my symptoms and previous successful treatment, why would I go to have him perfrom a colonoscpy? Further, I believe I need an endoscopic scope in my stomach. I have been taking copious amounts of NSAIDs for the joint pain....
This leads me to the chronic joint pain these doctors refuse to treat. I take 800mg of ibuprofen every 4 hours. I’ll be honest most days I take it every 3 hours. I know this is terrible. My GI doctor in Texas asked me not to take the ibuprofen and they gave me tramadol as an alternative, and it works great. These doctors will not give me ANYTHING for pain. They tell me I shouldn’t take that much ibuprofen but do not offer an alternative. I believe Celebrex would be a good substitute, but again... they won’t help me. I fear the blood in my stool is a result of the iburpofen. I have a history of blood in my stool when I take copious amounts of NSAIDS... joint pain. It began when I was pregnant. I was told all pregnant women have joint pain and it would go away after I gave birth. It did not. It got worse. I wear braces on nearly every joint on my body. I can’t open bottles. I can’t use a pen. I have issues doing simple tasks. I was previously very athletic. I can’t even a walk a mile without throbbing joint pain. I’m unable to play with my toddler. In Texas, I was taking methotrexate and before I moved they were going to try a course of Humara. For a year, I would travel from MO to Texas over 6 hours every three months to see my doctors. Eventually this became too much, so I switched to the NP in Missouri. She gave me most of my medications and continued similar treatment, however, I was unable to get a referral to a rheumatolgist. I used the methotrexate I had stocked piled as long as I could and had to stop. I basically used the tramadol, NSAIDs, Tylenol arthritis, CBD oils, physical therapy, massage and Kratom to control the pain. When I moved I hoped I would find a good rheumatologist. instead I found one clown who didn’t even touch me and told me standing 6 feet away that I am “double jointed” or hyper mobile and I can expect to be in severe pain that’s just how it goes -here’s a bill for $800 see you later. Unacceptable! I came to Froedert. I had a full workup and the doctoresident tells me I have this pain disorder and to go see a pain doctor. I need HUMARA....what do I need to do to try a course of a drug for autoimmune arthritis?
Next the OBGYN. I had a bad PAP in MO. I went to Froedtert to see an OB. I have some other things going on and I also wanted to inquire if the joint pain could be related to hormones. My joint pain gets severe to unbearable 2 days before my cycle and the pain stays at between 7/10-10/10 for a good 5 days. I have endometriosis (Diagnosed laposcopically) and ovarian cysts. I’ve had female issues since puberty. Now I have vaginal atrophy and chronic infections. When I use this estradiol cream Internal the atrophy gets better and the rash subsides. I came to Froedert and told them I have not been able to have intercourse or wear a tampon for over a year due to the pain in addition to the bad PAP. They did another PAP. They looked at the rash and said, ”you should go see a dermatologist. It looks like psoriasis. Maybe you have psoriatic arthritis” and told me to schedule in 1 year. A few things seem odd to me; 1. I had a bad pap in 2009 and they immediately did LEEP due to my medical history and my family’s. Is it not a risk to not remove those pre-cancerous cells? 2. I am in severe pain for over 1 year and they’re re telling me come back in another, so that’s 2 years I’m supposed to go about my business like this?
I find this to be unacceptable and so perplexing. What am I doing wrong here? How do I need to talk to physicians so they will listen to me? Why would these doctors just tell me oh your symptoms are unpleasant - go see a pain doctor? How do I need to communicate to get my point across? Or which hospital/clinic do I need to go to find qualified doctors? I made an appt with a pain doctor in late Dec, but I want a treatment for the root cause. I do not want to be doped up. I feel as if they are disregarding me b/c my issues are too complicated to invest time and energy in. Please help!

2020.11.22 21:58 globalwp [DIPLOMACY] Russian Concerns

To our friends in the Kremlin,
Zdrastvutye,
The UAR has noticed that Brazil has been an increasingly active force in the mediterannean region which is most certainly not conductive to Russian or UAR interests. Russia's only warm water port, the base at Latakiya, had been maintained by the UAR since the early 2020s as a testament to warm relations between the two sides.
The Plan to Erode Russian Power
The UAR does not believe in choosing sides when it comes to nuclear war. We did not establish a nuclear inventory to use it, nor did we establish it to threaten other nations with it. Nobody wins in a nuclear confrontation, and do not let Brazil tell you otherwise.
Let us review recent Brazilian actions in the region:
  1. Brazil deploys to Georgia, a nation with less than warm ties with Russia, in an attempt to dissolve Russian influence in the nation in favor of Brazilian influence.
  2. Brazil attempts to bring Vyberia and Poland onto its side, two nations historically opposed to Russia regionally and are effectively bordering Russia in the east.
  3. Brazil conducts Training exercises with Turkey, yet another nation directly bordering Russia
  4. Brazil issues degrading comments regarding Russia treating it as a junior partner to be won from the Chinese sides, with no respect for genuine Russian interests
  5. Furthermore, historically speaking, the Brazilians have sold weapons to evil fascist dictators and attempted to subvert the legitimate democratic Iranian government, a government that Russia has previously pledged support for.
  6. Forgetting the geopolitical qualms for a moment, one must recognize that Brazil is a colonial entity which has colonized an African state, and thus loses all legitimacy in the realms of the anti-imperialist plight. Its "Catholic Communism" is nothing more than a farce that is no different from the search of "Gods Gold and Glory" of past
Thus we must question whether the recent Brazilian overtures to Russia are merely but a means to encircle the territory and deny it allies. Brazil has recently issued its support for the junta in Algeria as well as subverted the democratic processes in Tunisia. They wish to turn Russia against its traditional partners in the UAR so that Russia would have no choice but to support Brazil's wars in the region.
The UAR has a vested interest in seeing Russia remain a power within its sphere, and condemns Brazilian erosion of Russian power. We thus urge Russia to reconsider their "alignment" with Brazil and understand that Brazil does not have Russian interests at heart, only Brazilian interests of domination.
Neutrality is the best Policy
The UAR has maintained its neutral stance with respect to the ongoing cold war, but has effectively been pressed to action by Brazil's extrajudicial execution of our journalists, something not done since ISIS in 2015. Brazil has routinely acted against the UAR's interests despite its policy opposing war on all accounts.
The UAR is closely aligned with Laurentia and has security interests, but these interests are largely based on security cooperation to promote peace in the region and economic prosperity. Similarly, the UAR has ties with China through the belt and road initiative despite our disagreements with regards to their foreign policy and their puppets. Similarly, the UAR maintains strong ties to Russia, evident in the fact that even as recent as last month announced a $1.5b arms deal. The UAR may have its allies, but over all, it supports peace.
Every state that has joined the UAR has seen democratic grassroots support prompt the unification, and every state has received unimaginable economic benefits and freedoms granted. We do not wish to see our people suffer because we are dragged into some meaningless war because some far away colonial power seeks to enrich its elite at our expense.
Thus Russia is presented with two solutions with regards to Brazilian influence:
  1. Joins Brazil in its imperialism: Russia could opt to support Brazilian influence in the region which has been notoriously perverse and far searching, with traditional "partners" such as Laurentia and Azania being subverted at every opportunity. Should Russia be drawn into a Brazilian war against the UAR, which would ultimately be a defensive war for the UAR, it would consequently be forced to fight in a world war. The Russian economy is struggling and a war of this scale would only inflict more suffering on its people. The UAR would also be forced to cut ties with Russia which would jeoprodize Russia's greater position in the region and place it directly at odds with Laurentia.
  2. Refuse to Join Brazil's imperialistic ambitions: Russia could instead opt to refuse working with Brazil and seek to reassert itself in Eastern Europe and the world at large. Given that Russia has cut its ties with the Oriental confederacy, there is a very small chance that Russia would be drawn into a dangerous conflict, and as such it may enjoy economic prosperity while spreading its influence and preventing Brazil from establishing puppet states in your backyard. The UAR and Russia would continue to collaborate with respect to trade and regional security, and Russian interests would come before Brazilian interests.
The UAR believes that for Russia's sake, it is best to cooperate with the UAR and remain neutral in the conflict in order to develop its own economy first. The UAR has been been approached by Brazil regarding cooperation with Russia. We believe Brazil is nothing but a treacherous snake, one that speaks kindly only to stab its "allies in the back" all while berating nations for aligning with truly reliable parties. While we do not wish to have anything to do with Brazil, we will not abandon our Russian partners and would be open to further collaboration and economic integration.
We assure Russia that the UAR will not engage Brazil militarily, but we will defend the Arab nation if attacked. We hope that you understand our concerns and take care to avoid being put in a position where being subjugated by the colonist is your only option.

2020.11.22 21:26 wdc12014 Post-partum anxiety and depression - medication not helping

Hello, hoping to get a suggestion on what to do, I'd say I'm probably more desperate now than I've ever been in my life.
Just to preface, my wife has struggled with anxiety to some extent throughout her life - had never been on medication before. I'd say she likely had high-functioning depression, or dysthymia as well.
My wife and I had our first child 3.5 months ago. Due to what I've always heard from other people and my own idiocy I just assumed the lack of sleep (first 2 months were brutal - colicky baby) and my wife's difficulty in handling it was just part of the process. I wish she and I had reached out for more help earlier on. Actually I wish I didn't waste so much bloody time reading a book about being a good birthing partner and while not learning a damn thing about post-partum. I admit it's my own fault.
Well, at around 2 months in it hit a fever pitch. My wife started not sleeping at all. At about 3 days of not sleeping some family came to stay with us to help out and look after our daughter through the night. Her MD prescribed zoloft/sertraline at the time. She continued to not be able to sleep for about 7 days total. My wife got suicidal (not to the point of making a plan, just a general feeling of wanting to be dead), was having tremors, cognitive disconnection and we ended up in ER twice.
She had been prescribed a couple of different sleeping pills which didn't seem to do anything to help.
We finally saw a psychiatrist at ER who thought zoloft was a good idea to continue with and prescribed seroquel/quetiapine so she could sleep. She managed to get 4-6 hours of sleep for several days which seemed to help.
In any case at this point she has been taking zoloft for 5 weeks and her anxiety/depression has not improved at all, her insomnia is getting worse now and she is getting additional symptoms such as extreme sweating and irregular heartbeat at times. Last week her MD recommended she reduce the amount of zoloft from 75 to 50mg as he thought that may be causing the symptoms.
Her digestion is getting worse as well, acid reflux, she's gotten some small red dots on her skin.
From what I understand we should definitely be seeing some kind of improvement from the anti-depressants by this point, but she just isn't... I don't now what to do but it seems like we need to take another direction.
Is L-Theanine something anyone has tried with much success? Biofeedback therapy? Valerian?
Is there any sort of legitimate hormone testing that can be done to see if there's anything obviously out of place?
She is doing counselling over the phone for cognitive behavior therapy, it's something that seems like it may help but will take a long time.

2020.11.22 20:34 jazzamatazz333 My [25NB] partner [23F] has been lying to me for months. We just broke up and then I found out the truth a week later.

I don't really know what I'm looking to gain from posting this, but I'm feeling acutely painful sadness and anxiety and hopefully just venting about it will help somehow. That said, if anyone has any remotely similar experiences and can offer advice that would be massively appreciated.
Alright, anyway. So my partner and I were together for three and a half years, until last weekend. We were split up for a couple of months at the end of last yeastart of 2020, and we got back together, and she confessed to sleeping with my (former) best friend, but we talked about it a lot and I eventually forgave her (this was a red flag I thought I had heeded, but apparently not enough), so after that, things were generally good until it started to decline a few months ago, and we just weren't happy together anymore.
We had been in an open relationship for a while before the first break up, which was fine - no problems there, and so a few months ago, after the dust had settled from the breakup and the cheating we decided we'd try that again. Writing this out I definitely see how reckless and myopic that was on my part, but what can I say, "it seemed like a good idea at the time."
Around this time, my partner started on some new anti-depressants, which killed her sex drive fully dead, so we stopped having sex entirely. She also started seeing a guy, who she told me she wasn't having sex with either, they were pretty much just hanging out.
Anyway, cut to last week, and she says she needs to talk, and given how unhappy I've been and how distant she's been for a while it doesn't exactly catch me off guard. We have a long conversation about it, she moves most of her things to her friend's house, and that's that.
Until yesterday, when I awoke to a message on Instagram from the guy she'd been seeing. He revealed that she'd not at any point told him that she was in a relationship, open or otherwise. Instead she had told him I was her ex and although we lived together she slept on the sofa. We talked a bit more and both found out exactly how much she'd been keeping from each of us.
Turns out, not only was she having sex the whole time and telling me she had no sex drive, she was sending dirty pics and messages to some entirely unrelated guys at the same time. Touching herself while me and my flatmate played on the PS4 in the same room, spreading her asscheeks, saying some truly gross things I don't really want to repeat here, the kind she never ever seemed like she would say, or be into saying. All this while she had 'no sex drive'.
I confronted her about this, and after some pressing, she admitted that she hadn't loved me for a while, and completely lost all interest in having sex with me, and all attraction along with it. She said a whole load of self-pitying shit, but she really seemed more interested in feeling sorry for herself than acknowledging how deeply and terribly she's hurt me.
Now I feel so blindsided and betrayed and hurt. This was someone I loved and was with for years, and it just feels like I didn't know her at all. I'm forced to assume she's been lying for longer than just the last few months and there's basically no way of knowing what was real and what was bullshit. It's more than just the end of the relationship because it feels like it erases everything that was good the whole time.
And what's more, I feel pathetic and disgusting thinking about all the times I tried to initiate sex with her and she told me she just wasn't feeling it, knowing she was probably repulsed by me. I already have more than a few body image issues and this just feels like it's going to be hard to come back from if I ever can.
Like I say, I'm just talking into the void here, I don't know what I want out of this. But there it is anyway. In summary I feel lost and miserable and completely betrayed.
TL;DR: My partner lied to me about having no sex drive for months and fell in love with someone else

2020.11.22 20:20 when-the-clocks-stop Am i (28 F) being exploited?

My partner (M27) is disbabled and we've been together for a year. Things have been rocky in part due to their disability and my commitment fears. However, after multiple dramatic attempts to break up, which deeply hurt my partner, I settled into the relationship determined to make it work.
I started taking meds for my emotions and am looking for a therapist. My behavior has significantly improved due to the anti depressants.
However my partner's mental health has only deteriorated and we found ourselves arguing every day over small things then bigger things. I made comprimises to alliviate some of the stress-- not having a friends over they dislike, constantly putting their feelings above mine...
However, last month i walked into our home and saw they were hanging out with someone who is not allowed in the house because theyre incredibly rude to me. This resulted in my partner and the friend teeming up on me, calling me abusive and controlling and having me leave the house, tho i cried and tried to explain it was my home too.
The next day they had my stuff packed and i moved out, tho still on the lease. I paid all of Nov. Rent even their share, despite not living there. I stayed in motels and went to work, hoping i would be able to go home soon.
It didnt happen. After booty calls followed by me being sent back to my motel, I became disillusioned. A few days ago after they invited me to the house to comfort them, they kicked me out because i didnt want to leave again with all my luggage till the next day due to complications (dont have car).
They exploded. They started accusing me of rape. They said i was abusive. They said they were horrified of me and that i had been rapong them for months in our relationship because I couldnt tell they didnt want to have sex just cause they seemed like they wanted to.
Im a very consent oriented person. I always ask and check up. They said once 2 months into our relationship when i had poked their butthole in a random jokey moment, that counted as rape. They said they didnt want to have sex with me, but were doing it for my pleasure.
This disgusts and horrifies me.
They then had me kicked out again, saying they felt unsafe.
Now they're telling me we need months of distance and need to slowly rebuild things.
The problem is, I'm still paying rent and i am bleeding money due to having to pay for ubers, motels and now the deposit on my new place.
My partner says they love me but dont understand how stressful being homeless is for me. Im not wealthy, just a college student, and it's frustrating they expect me to be alright and manage despite me being an orphan. I have a lot of strong friendships which they consider a support network I should be willing and able to rely on.
I disagee. I dont like burdening my friends and also feel disrespected by my partner's dismissal of my perdicament. He himself is busy with college and has no time to talk to me. He says he's not ready. But this means I stay in limbo and am also supposed to stay loyal to him.
I feel very exploited cause I dont want to keep paying rent and also be their lover when they literally kicked me out twice.
My friends say they're abusive and that it is a huge betrayal of trust that they made assult allegations at me.
My partner has lots of mental illnesses and i am aware that they could have misprocessed or even had sex with me in a dissociative state (without me knowing) and considered those experiences as rape.
I dont know how to feel. I've done my best to take care of my partner for a year and tended to their every need, from driving to pushing their wheelchair to paying for groceries and food and gas all the time.
I feel financially exploited but am unable to bring this up to my partner because they arent ready to talk cause they're busy with school. Honestly i am supposed to be too, but am too stressed about my housing situation to focus.
Also I have a potential immuno comprimised condition that my partner knows I'm being tested for and they still kicked me out.
They say it was only supposed to be for a night and that things would get better but theyve only gotten worse and its been a month now. They say they love me and even sent me a care package which contained all the little things I'd forgetten when i had to move out... Which feels less like a care package than a heres your shit package. Im confused. My friends say this isnt right but my partner assures me they love me and just need time and space. Im antsy and stressed.
Thoughts?

2020.11.22 19:29 Burger_Junkie The Official Burger_Junkie take out review -100% politics and Covid free! V1.0

Howdy!
Well lots of folks have asked me to review my exploits with eating out so I talked to the mods and here I am!
Today on the menu, we have Wayback Burger, which recently opened on Jasper Avenue and 104.
As always, we order and have it delivered. And away we go......................
Order time: 820 pm Friday night.
Delivery Time: 845 pm Friday night.
First impressions: Basically I hate trying new stuff. Hate it. If i'm going to spend money I want to know what I'm getting. As usual my partner drags me to the site and I start poking about.
The pictures are pretty darn close to what you're going to get.
As usual, I have to find the biggest double bacon cheeseburger I can get. Once you make a selection, you can add almost anything you want for a slight cost (extra patties, cheese all kinds of stuff). So that was pretty cool. For review purposes though, I stuck with everything standard.
Before we go any further, It's important to know they offer a 9 patty burger for $28. I think you'd have to be like a snake when you eat something like that, just swallow it whole and spit out the wrapper. Anyway......
My burger also comes with fries, which at most places are kinda second rate and just a throw in. It also came with a drink but I grabbed a water instead.
in a moment of craziness I also ordered a garden salad (gasp!).
The S/O orders the same burger but added mushrooms, Poutine instead of fries and because I was getting a salad she wanted a caeser one.
OK, so far so good, we send the order in and wait.
It showed up way earlier than we thought which was pretty cool.
The first thing we notice about the bag was there was an anti fry theft security tag which we found far too amusing.
After we broke open the seal of doom we had a quick look at how everything was packed in the bag. It was like something out of a training video, and I mean that as a very high compliment. Everything was perfectly wrapped, stacked and put together to stay warm.
The burgers were quite hefty, charbroiled (which always is a treat in the age of simple flat tops). Warm toasty buns made to hold stuff in. You're not gonna one hand these guys tho.
I attacked that burger and ate about 1/2 of it before coming up for air. I figured for review purposes I had better give the fries a shot - and boy howdy, they were perfect. The S/O's poutine has heavy with toppings and the perfect gravy ratio.
Another bite of my burger, and I was off to my salad. Now these cost AROUND $6 which is kinda average I guess. Thats the only thing average about this salad I'm afraid. Firstly, it was massive. I mean huge. The other thing was all of the veg was ice cold, crisp and very flavourful. The salads are completely customizable. I could barely eat 1/2 of it, same with the S/O. Maybe we will spilt one next time.
The damage: $57 all in, includes food, Skip fees and a 15% tip.
Did the stars align? Yes, they did! 4.5 stars out of 5
Would we go again? Yes!
Options for Kids: Yes, all meals for the little ones can be customized as well, even picky eaters will be happy.
Find them online at https://waybackburgers.com/menu/
Please note: All items are paid for by us. we just like writing reviews. We do not accept free meals, samples or discounts not available to the public.
We will be reviewing all types of burgers, including major chains and hole in the wall shops. Please let us know if theres a place you'd like to see!
Have a fantastic day everyone!

2020.11.22 18:57 __ibowankenobi__ Zengo wallet app conversion from btc to xtz issue

Hi Everyone,
I just tried the convert option of Zengo (https://zengo.com/) wallet app for btc to xtz. They have taken the btc, the transaction has been confirmed with 32 confirmations about 4 hours ago, and I am yet to receive the xtz.
I talked to their staff and after 20 mins of back and forth, they relayed me to the technical staff. The technical staff told me their trading partner takes longer than usual to respond and they will get back to me etc.
When they claim that the trades are settled within 5-30 mins, it should reasonably be completed within that time frame, they can really exploit this in times of volatility. At this point they are just sitting on the btc and doing a bunch of nothing for the last 5 hours.

I am writing this to warn everyone of these kinds of situations. Be careful!

PS: I will update here if I receive the xtz, and WHEN I receive it.
Here are some key takeaways for others. Today I learned that UI is not everything, UX is also important and this is where things can get complicated. When you do a conversion on a wallet like this:
- always ask the staff whether there are possible Jurisdiction issues etc. Do a small transaction and see how it settles.
