2023.06.03 07:21 datingthrowinsocal 28 [M4F] Southern California - Am I crazy looking for love on Reddit?

Dating apps are pretty bad, and I don't get an opportunity to put myself out there as much as I'd like. Maybe Reddit will work out? It's worth a shot anyways.
Why you should date me:
I'm a good listener. People have always sought me out to tell me what's going on with their lives.
I'm super open minded and flexible. I like trying new things or taking part in most activities.
I'm (semi) tall. Nearly, but not quite, 6 feet tall.
I'm not extremely extroverted, but I'm not super introverted either. I'm the nice, balanced mix in the middle
I'll take this seriously. I'm trying to settle down and find someone to love. Hopefully you are too?
Full disclosure: I've never been in a relationship, so this is all new to me. I think it's time that I put myself out there though, so I'm trying here.
I'm only looking for something completely in person. I'm open to anything long distance, but we'd have to plan to meet sooner than later. Also, I'm not interested in anyone older than 35.
The closer you are to my age, the more preference I have, but all those 18-35 who are interested are encouraged to send me a PM.
Please PM me and we can get to know each other. I'm hoping to see some orange envelopes

2023.06.03 07:21 Talky_Walky 31 [M4F] #NYC - Big Nerdy Bear Looking for a Nerdy Woman for talks, games or more

I'm an RPG, video game, book, movies, and huge Star Wars nerd as well as Pokemon, and currently reading Hellboy...sort of. I don't really comics much so it takes me forever. I like talking. More importantly, I like voice chatting. Where are the nerdy people who like to voice chat?
Let’s watch shows or play some games, or more likely, let’s just talk while doing our own thing. I'm also NOT skinny (fat/obese whatever) and while I'm not embarrassed about it is something I am working on now. I'm introverted and just like enjoying someone's company over coffee, ramen or whatever. I just want to talk and get to know someone. Let's talk about fandoms, or text stupid memes and jokes to each other.
Single dude who’s open to whatever as long as the connection is there.
If you’re up for talking please send a message and selfie! And sorry but I will not respond to simple one word messages. Please send a real introduction.

2023.06.03 07:21 CharmingTie6188 Possible injured fledgling pigeon

There is a fledgling pigeon on a grate outside my high rise apartment building (I live in an apartment complex). There was a thunder storm earlier today and maybe it got blown out of a nest or something, but I can't see a next any where near. It isn't running away from me when I get near it and it appears to have some feathers poking out at an odd angle on one of it's wings. I have a cat carrier, should I bring it up to my apartment and get it to a vet or rescue in the morning?

Good morning.
Newcomer, I am looking to acquire a Richard Mille 055 replica.
I read thanks to a user of this reddit that the ZF movement in version 2 or 3 would be more suitable for peace of mind.
I asked Jtime for his opinion and he replied that there was no problem with the BBR (jumping second hand)
What bothers me at Geektime is that there is no description of the watches (version movement, glass quality etc...) only photos.
Thank you for your feedback

As for what else I want in just a partner, I don't know, hard to say. I like a talkative person, I like to touch so hopefully you do too. I don't care what you do for a living and ideally, you're close to New York City but if meeting is a serious possibility than I'm more than willing to talk. I also have some kinks but NONE are a requirement. I am much more interested in a real connection but I understand that sexual compatibility is important.

2023.06.03 07:20 999divinefeminine Being on MB and DB’s bed.

Okay I know the tittle is a little weird, but hear me out. How do you guys feel about being on their bed with the kids? I always figured it was a hard no, that is your very personal space, I personally am one of those “no outdoor clothes on my bed” kind of people, and it just didn’t strike me as something you should do. But recently, I’ve had a lot of MB’s and DB’s express that they don’t mind? I even had one MB, while the kids were watching a movie in the bed and I was sitting on the edge, she said with a smile on her face “get in and get comfy with the kids”. Totally not what I was expecting-I was also wearing a panda bear onesie cause it was movie night or also because this was a “we see you like family” kind of family-idk maybe that had something to do with it. What’s surprising is that I told my nanny friend about it and she said she had a similar experience and she was surprised as well! I still feel weird about it and would rather choose to sit on the edge, idk. Thoughts?

Just finished watching S2 and rewatching S1 now.
She talks abt how she has to prove herself as a woman but literally does the opposite.
She got sooooo many 2nd chances it irks me since she keeps trying to paint herself as a strong female rapper.
Ktgorik imo was a wayyyyyyy better female rapper and unlike leys was mentally and emotionally tough. I was sad that she was kicked after her music video was considered too “unique”. She deserved to be in the final wayyy more and the judges fumbled so hard.

2023.06.03 07:20 snail__kidd a poem about the moon

The moon looked so lovely last night
milky and full
I watched it as you spoke
I didn't bother to listen; your words were not made for my ears
The clouds veiled the moon
now misty, aglow; memories of your back
warm against mine
watching that same moon
sleeping in the same bed
my sleep falling into the rhythm of your breath
that same breath making waves of laughter
at a joke that was not mine
that i could not hear: not aimed at me; your focus
That wonderful moonlight reflected upon my tears, glitter spilled across the window
My eyes met your hair and kissed it goodbye
flowing gently with the warm night breeze
I will never hold your hand again

2023.06.03 07:19 um_can_you_not Quit my job and now regretting it

Surprisingly, this wasn’t an impulsive decision. I decided to quit my job months ago due to stress, stangnant growth, and diminished interest. I was there for 5 years, rose up quickly in the ranks, and by all measures was super successful. However, the past two years were painful. The number of responsibilities increased significantly, and I had to balance so many more things than I ever had to in the past. It was a struggle, and last year was the first time my performance was called into question. Prior to that, I had always been able to hide/manage my struggles from “the public.” I spent more time than most to do the work I needed, which resulted in a lot of late nights and weekends. But in the end, quality was always high and deadlines were (almost) always met, so it was never an issue.
Anyway, I decided it was time to step away. I left on good terms and decided I would spend a couple of months relaxing before jumping back into the job market. But it’s been two months, and I’m feeling like the lack of structure has been super detrimental to me. I imagined spending mornings reading and going on walks, afternoons at museums and cafes and evenings at parties and events. But I feel like I’ve gone days unable to contend with the vast amount of options and freedom I have and end up extremely unproductive. Like not leaving my messy apartment for days and only watching YouTube videos levels of unproductiveness.
Since I quit, I’ve had a few mandatory events sprinkled in (e.g. travel, hosting) that have been a godsend because it gave me structure to build off of. But outside of that, it’s been hard. This is supposed to be this dream break that most people don’t get to have, but I’m seriously considering applying to jobs now to provide me with more structure/guidance. I guess I’m realizing that this level of freedom isn’t good for me. I think this also explains why I was so successful in high school (e.g. multiple clubs, sports, and volunteering) vs college (e.g. too much free time).
Any advice on how to develop drive and motivation in an unstructured environment? Does anyone else feel the same way?

2023.06.03 07:19 JunoReset Looking for an old creepypasta

In middle school I read a creepypasta about 2 sisters who lived with their grandparents. The house was near the woods, and they were lured in, I think by their dead mother or something. I remember it had a description of police carrying their "gray little bodies" out of the woods. I think it was on some sort of wiki but I don't remember the name and its driving me crazy

2023.06.03 07:18 Habitualdreaming Parents don’t believe in mental health help yet ridicule me for how I’m lazy or lonely

My parents tease me about it. I’ve always known that I have some sorta anxiety since I got panic attacks and refused to leave the house/ felt dizzy when I did. Followed by several other issues and what seems to be compulsions and checking etc. and now I just feel very sad. Like I’m watching others live and refuse to do so. I got fired. I also finished college just now. I do not go out. I became scared for my health and sat home worrying, was scared to travel far.. My friends were fed up. Rightfully so I’m a pain to be around. I sometimes open up to my siblings but they have their lives. My parents said I don’t have a tough life and didn’t live anything hard yet. I feel like I need to do self help. At least until I get a new job and make some money to invest into my mental health. I guess then then I can look around and get friends or something. Maybe a support system. I don’t know what to do I guess

2023.06.03 07:18 AlphaWolfBeast I am a famous Viral Cryptid Dogman but no one knows...

I acted as a werewolf in a horror film that I made with a friend and now people think a clip of me as a werewolf was a real dogman sighting but the original clip and us filmmakers were not credited for the copies being spread please help me get the original source the credit it deserves!.
5 years ago a friend and I were working on a werewolf horror film, we filmed a lot of footage and put a draft of the film together but we ended up abandoning the film, fast forward to now we found out that the behind-the-scenes footage we recorded was taken and put in Reddit and Instagram, users were claiming it was actual werewolf footage and thousands of people were liking those posts. So now we decided to finally release the film. It goes to show you that some of the things you abandon because you thought no one would like might actually be something worth creating. Sadly the original source which is on my main and alternative YouTube channel has very low views and only 1 to 14 likes while the leaked ones have around 20k but don't credit us sadly. To see the original clip that got people talking all over the internet check out this playlist! Sadly the original source videos don't have as many likes at the versions leaked so let's change that!
Look for updates on this on my YouTube

2023.06.03 07:18 Seppit229 For people who are liking the 2nd season, why do you like the 2nd season.

I don't want to dislike this show and I'm not trying to troll or shame anyone who actually does like it. Despite everyone, in my opinion justifiably, meming on Boyd I'm still really loving his overall character and preformances. I still love a lot of the characters and preformances. I loved the first season and wouldn't be watching the 2nd up till now if I didn't still hold some investment in the plot and SOME characters.
But for the life of me I can't watch an episode of this season and not go "Well that was mostly shit". The bus load of people that got me so excited at the end of last season have just been a noose around the show's writing and plot. There were too many of them, and their not justifying the time their taking from other things. A lot of the characters I fell in love with in the first season that I thought were going to continue their great story arcs have been sidelined. FOR WHAT!?
Some shitty out of left field romance that barely ties back into the overall plot. Yet another character who obviously knows more than there letting on but for SOME FUCKING REASON the writers refuse to let push the narrative forward. Characters not communicating with each other, not in a "deep emotionally layered way" but in a "The writers don't know how to make compotent dialouge way"
I know I'm coming off as hater right now but I'm also open to admitting that I'm the problem here. What mindset and rational do you guys who like the show view it in and is there any problems you have with my criticisms. In spite of everything I do want this show to succeed, there are many talented actors and actresses, the premise of it is still more intriguing than most thing being released these days and it's a Canadian production that's doing well. If that gives oppurtinies to the enormous amount fantastic talent that Canada has well than everything is secondary. But maybe next season pick the good Canadian writers.
Anyways much love, thanks for reading and, I'm more than open to any and all comments, defenses and praise that you may have for the show or this post.

2023.06.03 07:18 Greenfield_Guy Katatapos ko lang panoorin final episode ng "Better Call Saul"

I don't think I've ever watched a series with such an annoying main character. Bob Odenkirk is a good actor, but his character Jimmy/Saul just sucks. I mean, sure, you'd end up hating Walt in Breaking Bad too. But Walt has gravitas that you can't help but be drawn in. Jimmy/Saul has about the same appeal as the dogshit you accidentally stepped on and didn't realize it until you got in your car. (If anything, the show should be named "Mike Solves Everything" because Mike's the only character worth rooting for there.)
But I also feel especially annoyed about Kim Wexler's character because she reminds me of not a few women I've encountered who really should know better but can't help but stick with the worst guy possible ...because they craved for the fun and excitement. Then when something really bad happens and the shit hits the fan, they act shocked at the consequences... which they try to avoid by attributing their own actions to supposedly being taken advantage of by their chosen partner.
Seriously, that scene where Kim was ugly crying in the bus, I wanted to throw my phone at the TV screen. Tangina, maninira ka ng buhay ng maraming tao, tapos iiyak-iyak ka diyan YEARS later kasi... nagi-guilty ka? Gago. You had a lot of opportunities to leave a guy who was intellectually and emotionally inferior to you but you didn't do it because you loved being an asshole. Dapat kayo ni Jimmy yung kasama ni Lalo sa hukay, hindi si Howard.

2023.06.03 07:18 PixelMeg RWBY Retrospective Rewrite: Reddit edition.

Heyo! So this is just a fun collaboration thing I thought we could do as a subreddit. This is 100% not mod approved. But you guys are respectful anyway. So here goes: I'd like to see how we handle rewriting RWBY based on everything we do have now. A couple structures to start us off with. No ships in V1~3 unless they're plot relevant Arkos is plot relevant, Bees is not. No history or character major changes no random unknown family members, and no making a character do something they wouldn't do from their starting personalities beyond Arkos and ReNora the ships aren't on the table till after the dance. Any writing style is acceptable. Assuming you'll respect that, I can start us off with my rewrite of the introduction to:
Volume 1, Episode 1: Ruby Rose
Opening on a shadowed figure it extends a bone white hand to a book on a pedestal opening the book a female voice begins to speak
Narration: Legends. Stories scattered through time. Mankind has grown quite fond of recounting the exploits of heroes and villains, forgetting so easily that we are remnants, byproducts, of a forgotten past.
Man, born from dust, was strong, wise, and resourceful, but he was born into an unforgiving world. An inevitable darkness — creatures of destruction — the creatures of Grimm - set their sights on man and all of his creations. These forces clashed, and it seemed the darkness was intent on returning man's brief existence to the void. However, even the smallest spark of hope is enough to ignite change, and in time, man's passion, resourcefulness, and ingenuity led them to the tools that would help even the odds. This power was appropriately named "Dust" Nature's wrath in hand, man lit their way through the darkness, and in the shadow's absence came strength, civilization, and most importantly, life. But even the most brilliant lights eventually flicker and die. And when they are gone... darkness will return. So you may prepare your guardians, build your monuments to a so-called "free world", but take heed... there will be no victory in strength. The scene plays out as the storybook like intro did
Ozpin's voice over interrupts as he closes the book saying: But perhaps victory is in the simpler things that you've long forgotten. Things that require a smaller, more honest soul. The screen fades to silver
Zooming out from the silver we see Ruby Rose's eyes as she smiles toast in hand, and some cookies in front of her. She sits in a simple looking home across from Yang with books in front of her
Ruby: Yang, you're literally the best person around. Beacon will be lucky to get you. She says drinking some milk while picking up a knife for butter
Yang: sighs in Ruby not understanding, but still smiling because that's her adorkable sister not understanding Yeah but there's a test, and we she gestures to the two of them haven't exactly been good at tests, so if you can help your awesome big sister out please! She gives Ruby puppy dog eyes
Ruby: she immediately relents Okay okay! Just stop with the puppy eyes.
Yang: smiles and sits
Ruby: she picks up the book in front of her okay, what is dust, and what types are there?
Yang: she scoffs because she knows this leaning back and asking that's what you're starting with? Everyone knows what dust is.
Ruby: rolling her eyes she notes Dad does this all the time! He says he puts the occasional crazy easy question on the test because it throws people off. Besides you said ready for anything.
Yang: giving Ruby a touché face accompanied by a hand wave to acknowledge it she answers Okay dust is described as nature's wrath crystalized. We mine it from Vacuo and Atlas to be distributed all over Remnant for a variety of purposes to make daily life easier. It comes in five major forms: Water, Wind, Fire, Rock, and Gravity. Various other forms of dust include steam, combustion, lightning, ice, plant, and most recently Atlas dustoligists created hard light dust. As she names off the dusts she puts shotgun shells with colored dusts on the table as well as one of the gauntlets making up ember Cecilia by the way I need you to look this over.
Ruby: she nods satisfied with the answer and grabs another cookie why are most people today located in the four kingdoms? She says grabbing the gauntlet looking at it with a sigh she says man be a little more careful with my babies. She pulls out a toolkit and tinkers with ember Cecilia causing the parts to move
Yang: visibly struggles with the words she picks up another book flipping it open to some simple drawing of Remnant she says Uhhh the emperor of Mistral conquered all of Anima she taps the blue continent and was helping Mantle on Solitas she taps the white continent they traded tech for resources since much of the Solita's tribes mistrusted them, Mantle had to resort to trade. Mantle got attacked by Girmm as they do yang introduces us to a very crude drawings of a beowolf, ursa, nevermore and deathstalker
Ruby: interrupts Yang whoa what even are those? She says suppressing a giggle Are those supposed to be Grimm?
Yang: gets huffy and tosses the Nevermore at Ruby who beheads it with the knife come on I'm trying! She says giggling too, she continues Mantle decided to be weird about it and suppress creativity, they pressured Mistral into following suit, kind of. Mistrali and Mantlite elite were allowed to be creative though. Mistral came to Saunus she taps the Green continent where they were in for at least one big shock Faunus she holds up what's clearly a magazine cutout of a girl with shark teeth were treated as equal to humans for one, and the King of Vale already had settlements there. She holds up a green pepper slice to represent Vale's king he tried to be amicable to the eastern powers she uses a bottle and a half eaten cookie to represent the eastern leaders
Ruby: takes a bite of the mantle head's representation don't steal the examiner's cookie for the presentation.
Yang: opens her mouth to protest, but then just replaces it with a fry anyway a riot broke out and someone important got killed marking the kick off for the great war. Mantle came to Mistral's aid, though Vale had more forces on account of faunus being equal to humans, they were having a hard time fighting off two kingdoms. Then Mantle and Mistral tried to pressure Vacuo into being an ally and Vacuo's king she slams down a ketchup bottle to represent the final king. Ruby looks up and let's out a huff, but continues tuning up Ember Cecilia comes in like a hero and turns the tide for Saunus, Vacuan's respect the strong and only the strong so they naturally fell to the side holding strong in the 2v1!
Ruby: she nods I think that's-
Yang: she interrupts Ruby hey I'm not done! Man I like my hero stories just like you like your fairytales!
Ruby: nods and concedes more time
Yang: So anyway war brings misery and the settlements outside the four kingdoms wiping out the majority of non-tribal settlements outside the kingdoms by Grimm or war, but accelerating tech to modern time. Vale's king and Vacuo's king had had enough and they hatched a plan: They made it look like there was a time that the dust mines would be vulnerable to attack, and the eastern powers took the bait. Vacuo's king was no push over, but what the eastern powers didn't expect was the king of Vale to pull a big hero moment and decimate their forces before they could see the Vacuan king! Though that much devastation still makes negative emotions, attracting Grimm. The Great King as we know him, or The Warrior King as he's known in the East ended the war with the other rulers eh…"agreeing" to end faunus slavery, and promised reperations. The huntsman academies were founded by The Great King to turn our focus away from fighting each other and toward fighting the monsters of Grimm.
Ruby: Well that technically answers about the founding of the academies and about the great war too. She looks at the book and flips to a random page before pushing a metal pin into the weapon she's tinkering with what are semblances and aura? A clicking from ember Cecilia makes a bunch of parts move, shifting it into its bracelet form. Judging from Ruby's smile, that's a good thing.
Yang: in a joking tone she says while closing the history book soul juiiiiicccceee!
Ruby: she giggles Yang! Be serious! She says sliding the weapon back to Yang
Yang: she chuckles well I'm halfway right any-oop she drops the fry that stood in for the mantle leader on the floor
Zwei bolts in and gobbles up the fry before Yang can grab it causing both girls to laugh. Tai enters with grocery bags
Tai: don't take too much longer Ruby the shuttles to Vale City only run frequently during daylight hours! Tai and Zwei exit to the kitchens
Yang: ooh does someone have a secret date? She teases Ruby messing up the younger's hair
Ruby: giggles no but it is still a secret, and you're not getting out of the question, answer this one and I'll be off!
Yang: she rolled her eyes with a smile and answers Aura is the power of souls and life, all living things have it unless it's a Grimm. Semblances are mostly unique powers tied to our souls allowing fighters to do extraordinary things including making a force field to protect the fighter.
Ruby: works for me! I've got a shuttle to catch! She zips out the door in a gust of petals
(Start here, where does the show go now?)

2023.06.03 07:17 zhuquanzhong Explanation of Chinese internet terms when discussing the Ukrainian war and response to the previous posts

I saw a two posts today regarding Chinese internet discourse here:
Schizo rant warning: A non Chinese native speaker may have a hard time comprehending just how different Chinese internet language is different from most other internet societies. Due to the pervasive but precision-guided censorship, Chinese internet users at this point practically have a entire set of vocabulary and coded ways of speaking that are unlike anywhere where the internet is not censored. A side effect of this is that arguments on the Chinese internet are often very toxic and full of ad hominem. The entire phenomenon is known in Chinese as 抽象 meaning literally "abstract", but can be best understood as a blend of noncredible+4chan applied to everything.
One major characteristic of this is the use of various methods to circumvent censorship. For example, Mao Zedong is almost never referred to by name. Neutral people refer to him as 猫 "cat" or "neko" (Japanese word for cat) or 太祖 "grand ancestor" (a traditional title for founders of Chinese dynasties), supporters refer to him as 教员 "teacher", 伟人 "the great one" , or 他说是人民,人民说是他 "He says its the people, the people say its him" (referring to how Mao is supposed to support people power). Opponents refer to him as 佛 "buddha", 阿波罗 "Apollo" (sun god, referring to his cult of personality), 波尔布特的好老师 "Pol Pot's good teacher", 胶原 "collagen" (homophonous in Chinese to teacher, which his supporters use), or 腊肉 "salted meat" (referring to how he was embalmed).
China itself is also rarely ever referred to by name. Instead, it is usually replaced with other countries, such as Vietnam or US, and used in context so that that others will know you are talking about China. An example of this is one person posting "Vietnamese president Ho Chi Minh blockaded the port of Haiphong to prevent starving peasants from leaving there villages and forcing them to starve to death", and another would respond "Does your Vietnam happen to have 5 stars on its flag?". Another example will be "Roosevelt is so evil that he allowed 30 million Americans to starve to death", and another would respond "Did this Roosevelt serve for 27 years? (Mao's term length)".
These are just two examples. There are many many more and are pervasive in China largely due to censorship. This is known as 解构, which means "to take apart" or "deconstruction", meaning that any argument can be taken apart and thrown back. Other common examples of this include 唉,资本 "Ugh, capital", implying that the other person blames eall problems on capitalism, which latter expanded to things such as "Ugh, America", "Ugh, Jews", or eventually "Ugh, Ugh", reaching two degrees of deconstruction.
During the Russo-Ukrainian war, personal insults for supporters of either side also became very common. Pro-Ukrainians often call pro-Russians 俄孝子 "filial son of Russia" or 鸟拉 "Replacing the first character in the Russian war cry Ura! written in Chinese as 乌拉 with a similar character meaning bird" or 黄俄 "Yellow Russians", later changed to 黄鹅 "yellow goose" because Russian and goose are homophonous in Chinese. Pro-Russians call pro-Ukrainians 乌贼 "Ukrainian bandit", which also means "squid". The word 殖人 "colonized man" is also thrown around, referring to how a person considers another from the opposing view as wanting to be colonized and subjected to domination. The phrases 1小时22分 "1 hour and 22 minutes" and 一战封神 "Became a GOAT with one battle" are also used to mock Pro-Russians due to them claiming near the war's beginning that Russia would will quickly with only one battle in 1 hour and 22 minutes. This type of attack is known as 合订本 "record book", meaning that Pro-Russians would often contradict themselves to defend Russia. The same thing also happens with Pro-Ukrainians when they become overly optimistic, for example suggesting that Ukraine could take back Bakhmut any day when they in fact couldn't.
A final cornerstone of the Chinese internet is the use of one word retorts. Common one word retorts include 赢 "win" (implying the other person is attempting to make a defeat seem as a win), 绷 "are you kidding me" (short form of 绷不住了, meaning the person just posted something retarded), 急 "Bro calm down" (implying the other person has gotten angry, unlike in English this is used as an insult), etc. Because these one word retorts are thrown around extremely frequently, they've become far more common than practically anything in English.
Censorship in China has created the unique situation that the entire Chinese internet has become 4chan-ized. Everyone insults everyone and everything is prone to being deconstructed. It's barely possible to have a serious argument in most places anymore. Anyway this is my schizo rant about how China is very noncredible.
