A person enters a relationship with someone, only to later find out they're related. Usually a cousin, a long-lost sibling, or the person’s parent from the past (in cases of time travel).
2023.03.30 14:21 StepwiseUndrape574 Alledged GTA 6 Beta Tester Dishes A Ton Of Details In Latest Leak
Time sure flies, doesn't it? We are about to ring in a brand new year, and as we do so, the release of Grand Theft Auto V is now more than six years old (and is fast approaching five years on PC). Given the time that has elapsed, it is certainly possible (maybe even plausible) that Rockstar Games is deep in development on Grand Theft Auto VI. To that end, a supposed QA tester claims to have the skinny on the next installment.
We should preface this information with a disclaimer. There is no way of knowing if the supposed QA tester is what the person claims to be, or if any of the leaked details are accurate. All we know is that it's been a long time since the last Grand Theft Auto gaming (though Grand Theft Auto Online has been receiving continued updates and support).
What is interesting about the situation, though, is the anonymous source first posted the leak on Reddit, and it was removed by the moderators. It's not clear if perhaps Rockstar Games pressured the mods to take down the content. All that said, let's jump into it.
The folks at Dexerto managed to preserve the post. According to the original poster, the map in GTA VI is "huge" and covers to major cities, those being Carcer City and Vice City. Carcer City is based on Boston, and Vice City is based on Miami.
According to the leaker, GTA V is a "schoolyard playground" compared to the massive map in GTA VI. The leakers says Rockstar Games improved the weather effects and polished things up, borrowing from its experience on Red Dead Redemption 2.
"The map is huge, like stupendously huge, hence the game's emphasis on air travel. It makes GTA 5 look like a schoolyard playground. There is an array of atmospheric effects that bring out the life in everything. Light pollution, hurricane winds, morning fog, etc. I've never seen an open world game this realistic before," the leaker wrote.
Grand Theft Auto V Plane and Traine
Assuming all that is accurate, it would be a good opportunity to inject real-time ray tracing into the mix, though there is no mention of that. Instead, the focus is on the size of the map. The leaker says it's so big that it's "a little awkward traveling from Boston to Miami," in part because there are no other major cities in between them, in the game. Expect a lot of air travel, if that's the case.
The leaker also says GTA VI will again put players in control of multiple characters, just like in GTA V. One of the protagonists is said to be "an undercover cop or something," and other might possibly be a sibling. In addition, the leaker says Rockstar Games "complete revamped" the mission design.
"You can permanently abandon some missions or take different routes that sprout different consequences," the leaker says.

2023.03.30 14:21 tylerf89 I used ChatGPT to create the full 120 quotes from Phil's-osophy
Just came across the Phil's-osophy episode and decided to see if anyone was selling it. Came across 1 Amazon listing and everyone was complaining that it's an empty book.

2023.03.30 14:10 wifescorned Now it’s time to play chess update.
Update: So I think first I need to give more of a back story soo a couple of months ago I was using my husband’s laptop and I was sending pictures from phone to his laptop to he has a MacBook soo all his pictures on his phone are also in his laptop, so while I was looking for the pictures i happened to find a video of him having sex with one of the neighbours in our old apartment. Personally I think that was all the evidence I needed however I know that there is always more so I took some time to gather all the evidence I needed pictures, text messages phone logs every thing.
After I confronted him he proceeded to blame me he said he was not attracted to me as I had put on weight, and he said he wanted a divorce, I didn’t want one so I begged it’s crazy even though he was hurting me I didn’t want to looses my marriage , so anytime I would feel depressed and sad and told him about it he would threaten me with divorce so I’ve spent the past couple of months walking on eggshells, I would cry by myself and put on a brave face in front of everyone.
So I decided to start working on myself I started working out, I started meditation, I focused on my career and I got a promotion at work, I stoped putting money and out joint account and start saving my money elsewhere, I have also moved my share of the savings and used a little extra for a flight ticket.
yesterday he said to me he didn’t want to be married he was not expecting me to say okay.
I’ve never seen him so quiet,I made sure to tell him exactly how I felt and I also informed him that after the divorce he would never see or speak to me again I think in that moment he realised the whole time he has always needed me more than I need him , I do everything for this man he can’t even put on the washing machine I do everything for this man and hold down a full time time Job and contribute to half the bills.
He then all of a sudden changed his tune saying he loves me he can’t be with anyone else blah blah blah that’s crazy to me after he has been attempting to divorce me I finally agreed and all of a sudden he doesn’t want a divorce I told him we could work it out of he agreed for us to go to Counceling and of course he agreed.
But I’m not interested in this marriage anymore and I had the best sleep of my life last night knowing that on Monday I will be on a flight to Singapore with my share of our joint saving while he is receiving divorce papers! I guess I can say Checkmate!

2023.03.30 14:10 Joshee2004 Should I let my bf (30M) get married to a girl (ultimately leaving him) or do I get married to him now? (18M)
So I have been in 2 relationships. My first bf cheated on me with a girl, they got married, wife got pregnant and ultimately he left me coz he wanted to be a good dad for his unborn child. I never asked him anything and trusted him. I thought he won’t leave no matter what happens and the marriage was forced by his parents (or so he said). I trusted him and he betrayed me. It took me a long time to get out of this and move on because I really liked him. 💔😔 Then in college I got a crush on my maths teacher. I proposed to him on Valentine’s Day and he said ok. Everything was going well and I started to get better. But now my current bf has to marry a girl because his conservative parents are forcing him to. He asked me whether I should marry her or marry me instead. But I m only 18 and I don’t want to marry so soon. I asked him to wait till I turn old to marry but he can’t wait apparently and wants us to move out and start a life in 3 months. What do I do now? I really like him but not as much as my first bf. Is he worth it because moving out (eloping without telling anyone) is a huge risk im taking?

2023.03.30 14:02 pwtrash Question about switching representation
We have some weird stuff going on, and I'm not sure how to proceed. Would appreciate some advice.
I have a parent who died a few months ago in a rural county in the US. My parent's attorney at the time seemed good, although my parent had complained about response times. For context, my sibling and I are thousands of miles away and the estate has no creditors or debtors. There is a complication on the real estate side, but the personal property side is pretty straightforward.
One of the reasons we felt this lawyer would be good was because they have a lot of influence in the county and knew the judge (they had actually been a judge, but had been removed from the bench for anger issues). Forebodingly, we've had non-legal professionals involved with the various pieces ask us not to tell our lawyer something they said, because they were afraid of reprisals (we did not experience this until the process was pretty far along).
So we stayed with this lawyer for probate. Unfortunately, my parent was right - we would send in materials and go weeks without even an acknowledgment that it had been received. We would call and get no call back for a week, and then get a two hour late evening phone call that got us effectively nowhere. When we did get contact, we were told, among other things, that the judge would need to approve every single sale of anything that had ever been titled, including a $500 trailer - which would cost more in legal fees than it would make. This approval, we were told, would have to be done after a signed sales agreement, meaning any buyer would have to wait 2 weeks for judge approval. Obviously, no estate handler was willing to sign this, and they all said this was extraordinary and unusual. When we re-read the will and asked about it the clause stating that no personal property was to go before a judge, we were told, ok - maybe we can get pre-approval from the judge after all. It was all very strange. I realized toward the end that I had never been told the lawyer's hourly rate, and that we had never seen any parameters around our working relationship.
Eventually, the lack of responsiveness and unprofessionalism got us to the point where we decided we needed to seek other representation. The lawyer at this point had already suggested that maybe that's what would work best, so we hoped it would not be seen as something anger-inducing.
Since then, we've called multiple different attorneys within a 50 mile radius. It all starts off with "we think we can do this" and then either a follow up "no" or a black hole of silence. (The next-to-last guy just didn't respond for two weeks, so we didn't know if we actually had a lawyer or not.) It's happened 4-5 times now, so it's starting to feel more than coincidental. We've been without any movement forward - including permission to hold an estate sale - for about 6 weeks.
So we're trying to figure out what's going on. Is this normal in the legal profession, or are we being messed with by Boss Hogg? What is the best way to handle this?

2023.03.30 13:57 justwow2 What I wish I had done in retrospect
I read your posts. I feel your pain. My STBX put me through hell after his emotional affair and discovery. 3 years ago I knew he was acting different. After 30 years of marriage. None of us deserve this. The WS is not in any state of mind to make you feel better. Most of them want to blame you. I can't believe I stayed for any time, spent time and money on marriage counseling. Or had hope we could get past it. This is just my experience. But I should have left the first time he tried to blame me or our marriage for his poor choices and lack of self control. He got to say he was done in the end. I really did try to meet his needs and improve the marriage, I try to say I don't regret that. Please listen to the advice about focusing on yourself. And I wish I would have embraced the gray rock (don't interact), rather than try to disagree with his ridiculous criticism of me and our marriage. By no means was I perfect, and neither was the marriage. Them making us feel bad after they betrayed the marriage is just terrible.The best thing I did was finally move away, closer to my family. I am not saying getting past it is impossible. But look for red flags - a partner that blames you or won't stop behaviors that led to their betrayal. This is experience is traumatizing, don't forget that. I wish you all peace♥️

2023.03.30 13:56 Throwawayworriedpare Unpopular opinion - assessment of villains and angels pt2
Continuation of pt 1. https://www.reddit.com/MAFS_AU/comments/125zz4q/unpopular_opinion_my_assessment_of_the_villains/
- Duncan - I think he's a nice guy seems articulate analyzes well. He's handled himself generously with the attacks from Alyssa. However I do think there are some valid issues. First that photoshoot .. would anyone like their partner working with a attractive friend to take sexy photos? Weird. And as I mentioned b4, he could have been a tad more proactive about finding out what life would be like. (see Alyssa description). Don't know if the recent rumors are true about him having a GF before and breaking it off bc Harrison suggested he'll get better . But if so, yea I can see why Alyssa was vary of who he keeps as friends. Regardless though of Harrison's involvement, he needed to break it off because that wasn't a good relationship.
- Layton - honestly I feel like we've been fed some sort of false narrative about Layton. He doesn't seem to be emotionless. He seems to have good morals/boundaries, respectful, caring, and shows emotions. Like John's arguement about him having to be uncomfortable with the partner swap was pretty stupid because morals are not meant to be crossed. It's not some sort of preference that you can challenge or push yourself outside of. I also see him as very attentive and caring of Melinda even infront of her. And the guy cried a number of times, even infront of her. What's this nonsense about him not being emotional? I mean lets compare and contrast him and Duncan. When Duncan analyzes Alyssa and the relationship to the experts its emotional intelligence. When Layton does it it's being too much in the head. I think this did unfortunately made Melinda feel more right than she actually is. Overall I think these two do have potential but I hope they go for a real couples counselor because then they can thrive after learning how to communicate better.
- Evelyn - I liked her at first but I started to get annoyed she wanted to insist and make sure no one challenged her butt dial thing. Like Harrison doesn't believe it.. OK. Who cares. Let him be. The facts remain about what was said and done whether it truly happened or not. But she gets so pushy about making sure he agrees it happens. And goes gets Rupert to confront it. But at the same time I won't be surprised if the producers directed her to 'care'. Other than that, she definitely seems like she made up her mind to get along with whoever she was matched with so she could just get airtime.
- Cam - I actually think he's been getting more heat than he should. Yea he's unaffectionate and boring and emotionally neglectful. Yes. He isn't a good partner. But it rooted from him being a jerk? Look the guy has given a billion hints he's not into her. He's wishy-washy about moving. And he said he's not in love, well ok. I think he did wrong by not shielding her from the embarrassement by lying and just telling her later, but that's rooted in him just being an overly simple unsophisticated guy rather than a place of inner meanness.
- Lyndall - she's been very supportive of those whose been hurt. She's tried to make it work. But I'm confused. Are the hugo rumors true... If so then I don't really understand the scandalous reaction to Cam. I do understand maybe Hugo and her met as friends or something. Or maybe she met with Hugo to talk about Cam and Taylah. I don't know. But if the rumors about all her BFs and hookups are true, she's not very innocent and it makes her angel edit annoying.
- Ollie - he's been pretty underrated but my fav. He actually has the most emotional intelligence, very perceptive, and well intended. He reminds me of Pete Davidson ..
- Sandy - I feel bad she just didn't get that Dan wasn't into he but it sounded like he put up a different face in private. But as someone familiar with south Asian culture and how much women put up with in the name of marriage, you could see her ultimate commitment to an even toxic spouse. And she never saw it. It sounded like he said so much racist stuff in the butt dial, why didn't that become the main holding point. Also I didn't understand why none of the men attending said anything to back or refute the claims. Maybe again, editing or producers intervention. I don't know if rumors are true about her calling him the C word but if it is, I have a feeling this would have changed her storyline on the show quite a bit.
That's it for now

2023.03.30 13:53 Calneon Tips for double handed play at harder difficulties, with limited card pool?
Hi. I'm fairly new to AHLCG and own Core + The Dunwich Legacy + The Path to Carcosa. I have a regular group that's completed TDL and is going through TPTC on standard difficulty.
Between those sessions I wanted to play some solo campaigns. I also have Return To the Dunwich Legacy, so thought I'd play through that and for added spice turn it up to hard (probably in hindsight not the best idea since Return To already bumps the difficulty a bit. Tl;dr at bottom.
I chose Mark Harrigan and Daisy Williams and specialised them into fighting and investigating. First scenario was The House Always Wins which went very poorly. Mark only got out a Machete before the criminals turned aggressive and then had the worst luck and was engaged with more than 1 enemy most of the time. We were mainly cornered in the stage area and Daisy couldn't help because I didn't give her any fighting capabilities. Tip #1 - Investigator decks need some versatility because things are going to go south and they need to help each other out.
We ended up running out the doom clock and taking 1 physical trauma each.
Extracurricular Activity was much better, Daisy managed to get a hit on the abomination with the alchemical concoction and Mark finished it off. Whippoorwills were a huge pain in the ass though and we barely made the required tests. Tip #2 - Always kill whippoorwills when they appear.
Miskatonic Museum also went well, especially considering we got an Infinite Doorway
on the central location. Mark narrowly avoided death from Beyond The Veil
by drawing as many cards as possible to cycle the discard pile before drawing Beyond the very next Mythos phase. Mark also had very little to do in this scenario and was twiddling him thumbs most of the time. See Tip #1
Essex County Express was a write-off. Mark got overwhelmed by enemies with the new Overseer and couldn't get help from Daisy. The forced actions on entering carriages wore away at health and sanity (Mark having 5 sanity and effectively 5 health due to Sophie really didn't help). Daisy made a good effort healing with the medical tome but had to keep spending resources, and when we got to the carriage that required 3 resources per clue it was basically game over. The horror from a passenger finished us off, each taking 1 mental trauma. Tip #3 - Investigators with 5 in health and/or sanity leave very little margin for failure, especially with trauma.
Blood on the Altar went alright though Mark was quite overwhelmed by the amount of enemies in the encounter deck, even with his upgraded .45s. At this point I'd realised the .32 Colt just wasn't a good card for harder difficulties, despite what people say about it being good for Mark with his 5 fight. 1 extra fight can make all the difference when regularly pulling -3 and -4 from the chaos bag. Tip #4 - .32 Colt is not good above standard difficulty.
We managed to find the hidden chamber and Daisy made light work of clue gathering with Pathfinder (to move into the chamber) and Archaic Glyphs to grab multiple clues while inside, and then making a swift retreat.
I wasn't looking forward to Undimensioned and Unseen, because it's a very willpower focused scenario and Mark and Daisy weren't specialised in it. However, it was going much better than I expected and we killed a couple of Broods without much difficulty. Mark was able to take damage with Sophie to boost his evade to exhaust the Broods, and Daisy with Encyclopedia and Higher Education could boost her willpower to get tests with 4-5 skill advantage (with the clues, of course). We were feeling pretty good, recouping and healing up a bit, when the agenda flipped and a Brood spawned on top of us making an immediate attack with a (4) agility test. Mark failed the test but was able to eat it, flipping Sophie in the process, but Daisy would be put to 1 remaining health if it connected. We threw everything at it, Daisy with committed 5 agility and Mark helped with 1, making the test 8 vs 4. Of course we drew the -5.
So it was bad, but we were still alive, and we could use the location ability to place our clues and hopefully defeat it the following turn. Then we drew Ruin and Destruction
from the mythos deck. Another (3) agility test. Having used everything for the previous test, there was nothing we could do, not even the elder sign could save Daisy. Mark lived with 1 health and actually managed to deal two damage to the brood on his turn with some clutch willpower tests, but the third and final attack failed. With no way to escape he also succumbed.
This is where I'll be abandoning the campaign. Progressing with so much trauma seems pointless, I'd rather evaluate my errors and improve for next time.
I want to create better decks and try again, hence this thread. Tl;dr
- What tips do you have for playing harder difficulties with two investigators, with a small-ish card pool (Core + TDL + TPTC). Cheers!

2023.03.30 13:46 rhowe004 Almost mugged at gunpoint
I think I mostly just need to vent here, so thanks in advance for reading. My wife (38F) and I (37M) have been having issues. Our marriage has been hanging by a thread but it’s gotten slightly better over the last month or so. I have been seeing multiple therapists to address my issues and she is in the midst of setting herself up with one for her issues. Eventually we will see a marriage counselor but we both need to work on ourselves first. I could go on and on but it would take about 30 paragraphs to explain our situation.
I have been driving for Lyft to make some extra $ for us. Last night I was picking someone up in a real bad neighborhood and soon after he got in my car a random guy approached. My first instinct was that he was a friend of my passenger trying to tell him something so I started to slow down. Luckily my passenger warned me to just keep going. As I drove away he told me that the guy is known for trying to scam people for money and flashes his gun when they refuse. Basically, I was moments away from being mugged at gunpoint. After that ride, I texted my wife, “Remind me I need to get a pistol permit/concealed carry license.” I immediately got another ride request so I didn’t have time to elaborate…but I think it was pretty clear what that meant. Her response was, “😱”.
I got home around midnight. Mind you, I get up around 4:30am for my normal job, so I was already pretty miserable on top of almost being fucking mugged. I walk in the door and she’s on the couch. Nothing. She’s just laying there watching TV and doesn’t break her concentration from her stupid cop drama show to ask what happened or if I’m ok. I gave it a little time and still nothing. In the meantime I grew angrier and angrier. I kept thinking, “How the fuck is she not asking me what happened or if I’m ok?” I didn’t bring it up because through therapy I have learned to control my anger and not start any fights until I’ve really allowed some time to think/cool down and reevaluate if something worth fighting over.
I ultimately decided to sleep on it. I gave her a kiss on the forehead and went to bed. I was visibly angry and her eyes showed some concern, but that was it. This morning I am still really pissed off, so here we are. My question is do I tell her I’m upset or not?
One part of me is saying to myself: Dude, that’s so fucked up. Regardless of the mistakes you’ve made and your shortcomings as a husband, your own wife showed zero concern for your well being after being almost mugged (and possibly even shot). If you bottle this up it will eat away at you. You have every right to be upset and she needs to know how you feel. If she was almost mugged you would immediately have asked her about it given her the biggest hug when she came through the door.
The other part of me is saying: Dude, get over it. You know deep down that she cares about you and would be devastated if something happened to you. If you bring this up it will only make her feel like a piece of shit and you will take a huge step back with all the progress you’ve made. You’re alive, unharmed, and nothing was stolen from you. That’s all that matters. Learn from this situation, be more aware of your surroundings while driving and stay frosty. Let go of this negativity and move on.
tl;dr I was almost mugged last night and my wife didn’t ask what happened or if I was ok. Should I tell her I’m angry about it?

2023.03.30 13:44 Burningsword It always gets better!
A few years ago I came here on this subreddit and shared a story about my wife pulling away emotionally and physically (I can’t find the post and I can’t tell if it’s because it got removed or I must have deleted it?)
Long story short, she asked for a divorce and I granted it to her. Later on, I discovered that she was cheating on me, reconfirming the doubts I always had. Here’s what I learned from my experience. I pray this can help anyone who can identify with this situation, ameen.
- My instincts pointed me to the truth a long time ago, but it was my low self image and esteem that kept me in my marriage. For you, it could be a fear of being alone, or because of kids. And looking back now, I can say with confidence there’s never a good enough reason to stay in a doomed relationship. Because when that voice in the back of your head keeps speaking to you, you owe it to yourself to take a pause and listen to it. It’s trying to look out for you.
- Take the time to understand and decompose your role in the decay of the relationship. No matter how much you were wronged, it always takes two to tango. Once you can pinpoint your own shortcomings, work on them so that you can go into your next relationship on a better foundation.
- Create boundaries and stick firm to them. Even before I discovered my ex cheating on me, there were a lot of boundary violations leading up to it that I let slide, and it (surprise, surprise) it only emboldened her to keep pushing.
- Take time to grieve and heal. Your timeline is your own ultimately, and no one knows when you’re ready to move on except for you, but you will need to process everything. You went through a life altering experience, and you will not be the same person you were before. It’s up to you to determine if that change is positive or negative.
- Sometimes, the only closure you need is the fact that it happened. I went into a tailspin trying to rationalize what happened and came up with a million theories, but it was only when I accepted what happened that I was able to close the chapter on my old life and move on.
- You do not owe ANYONE (by anyone, I really mean anyone) an explanation for the decisions you make in your life. Throughout the entire ordeal, I heard so much noise from both sides of the aisle (no pun intended lol) about what I should be doing or not be doing. The truth is, you are the only person who has to live with the consequences of your decisions.
Alhamdulillah, it’s been roughly two years since it all went down. I would be lying if I told you that I didn’t consider numbing myself to any and all emotions. I was scared of ever being vulnerable and hurt like that again. I decided that instead of living my life in fear, that I would take a chance on finding happiness again. I started with loving myself, and that spurred me into what is now the best period of my life. For better or for worse, I had to go through what I went through to find myself. I wouldn’t change a thing if I could go back.
As for my happy ending, I’m getting married again in a few months inshaAllah 😃. She’s one of the most remarkable people I’ve met in my entire life, and as much as she says she’s lucky to have me, I feel the exact same way. She is living proof that the right one will love you as you are.
If you have any questions, I’d be more than glad to answer them. It’d be my way of paying it forward for the next person.

2023.03.30 13:34 tspinthru Black sheep this thread is for you
I (33m)/ no kids, am the middle of a half dozen adult siblings. Parents and siblings all TBM except for the youngest whose just kind of finding their way. All of my siblings went to BYU, a couple served missions, I have a double digit quantity of nieces and nephews.
I stopped going to TSCC asap in early adulthood. I joined the Marine Corps, went to an in state university. I’ve always worked really hard, I hated being broke when I was a kid. I did a lot of solo traveling just to experience new places and people. I never bought into “the world” is filled with evil and “non members”. I’m agnostic more than anything, and if there were any truth to non denominational Christianity I could never wrap my head around it after long term submersion in the LDS bastardized version of it.
Overall my experience growing up in the church was awful, I always thought everyone else was great with god but something was wrong with me. Bishop interviews were torturous and honestly damaging in my adolescence. The temple was a horrifying experience. I had to stop the madness. I couldn’t live with myself and stay any longer. I didn’t leave because of selfishness I left because of honesty; to myself.
It’s really weird having a large family and having close relationships with none of them. I have some great relationships otherwise, especially with my gf and her family. But it’s a lonely road feeling like I’m the only sane person in mine. My family are all really good people, and although I’ve accepted for years it will always be the way it is, I can’t stop mourning for the relationships we’ll never have, and how they’ll never experience true individuality outside the Mormon masks they’ll never take off.
I have one uncle that thinks like me. We meet once a year and sit at a bar and vent our complaints while we share a few beers.
I’d love to hear any comments from anyone with a similar experience. I know there’s plenty of black sheep out there, we’re silent observers by nature.

2023.03.30 13:33 aguywhocantgoout I'm a teenage bisexual Father who's inlove with my straight best friend
I bisexual M(19) father of my 4months old son, inlove with my straight best friend M(19). it all started when we were grade 10 or 4th year highschool. My best friend and I were classmates since grade 7 and he also lives in our neighborhood, we weren't even close back then until we became grade 10 that's when we became best friends. My borring stay at home introvert life changed, I finally have someone to talk to about any topic, someone who will go out with me when I want to buy something, someone I can talk to in person day or night, we never run out of topic or happenings to tell each other, we were always so happy. He's the one who gave life in my borring highschool life.
I know it's bad influence but he's the reason I learned how to drink alcohol and having barkada(group of friends can be bad influence or good parents in the Philippines hates those kind of friends). And I don't care I'm enjoying my life so much more than my borring grade 1-9.... It was his friends birthday and he invited me to join, whilst i was there he always ask me "okay ka lang(are you okay)"? And he always checks on me to see if I'm being out of placed and even though those room is full of his friends he chooses to talk with me, he is always so concerned. And when his barkada(friends) ask me to take a shot, he told them not give me the drink because he knows I don't drink, but of course it's a teenage bday party so his friends insisted so I ended up taking the shot (It was my first time to taste alcohol)... While enjoying the party he always ask me if I'm still okay, or if I can still drink/walk. He even told me to insist not taking another shot. Then the party ends and he supports me walking home while my arms are in his shoulders, I've never felt happier.
Then months after that I've got my first Girlfriend my seatmate. We lasted for 2 months and nothing special Happened. Then 2 months after our breaking up he met my Ex's best friend and he courted her. So they got in a relationship, I didn't care back then because I didn't understand my feelings for him, I thought its just that he's a very fun best friend. He was jealous of me because I'm very close to her Girlfriend so he stop talking with me. After 3 months since their 11 months relationship ends, We came back to normal. We hang out every night or after school. It is always so much fun for me.
Summer came after the end of grade 10. A girl keeps on chatting with me, she was so persistent and also very beautiful, so I fell for her. After 3 months of chatting and ghosting. We became official she became my Girlfriend F(20). Our time together was the best we do what couples normally do, then after 8 months of unprotected pull outs, we accidentally became pregnant, though we didn't want the baby and I opened her to the topic of abortion, she got mad she was a very religious woman and I'm a very open man. Also in our country it's illegal to have an abortion, even when it's caused by rape it's still illegal. Anyways I stopped studying grade 12 and work for my family my baby. And our baby was born, I love my son so much and would give him anything in my can. He's the cutest little chubby circle faced baby ever. Now he's 4 months old and My girlfriend and I broke Up because our relationship is too toxic and the negatives outweighs the positives by 10 to 1. Most of the problems are because of her OVER RELIGIOUS parents, they don't want us to be together and wants us to mary and live on our own, which of my current job i cant afford. And I plan on marriage when I am successful where my partner and I wilk have an easy life. Anyways now that we've broken up I'm giving child support to my baby everything that my baby needs. I still get to see my baby and take care of him every week on my day off.
Whilst i was broken my best friend is always by my side comforting me, we were always together staying up till 11 in my/parents house. Having nonstop conversation and laughter. That's when I have a deep thoughts and realizations. I'm in love with him, with my best friend. And now he keeps on showing mix signals(inconsistently or says one thing but does another about his feelings for me) posting about very relatable relationship topics, now I'm very confused and over thinking if he have feelings for me (because I know he is very straight). He even posted a myday where there is a picture of Alcohol held up in the sky saying "to the person that I love but cannot be". After a couple months of breaking with my ex I actually confess to him that I'm a Bisexual now his the only person who knows about my deepest secret but that's for part 2. That is if someone would ever read this post lol.
Ps. I am like an average straight guy in person on the outside. I am also on the standard of handsome in my country WOW THAT'S BOASTFUL. HAHAHAHHA. I never wear make up or anything and I dressed like a typical straight guy. So I don't know if he ever noticed.

2023.03.30 13:32 RevenueComplex9722 Gender War Is A String Of Unfortunate Events: I was Raped And Didn't Think It Was Rape
Before meeting my long term partner (ex now), I shared a hotel room with a 29-30 year old guy when I was 17 years old. I had sex with him once and he knew I was inexperienced and that I was deathly scared of STDs and pregnancy. I even made him put the condom under light so I could make sure there were no holes in it. I fell asleep and woke up to him fucking me without a condom and telling me to lay still. I always used giggling as a defence mechanism so I remember just lying there and racing with my mind thinking "Is what he's doing to me wrong?" because it felt nice but I knew he could get me pregnant at any time. At the time, I was in a mental hospital after my father smashed my head on the wall and in order to escape my father, I admitted myself to the hospital. My mother convinced me to go to a mental hospital instead of a real hospital, later finding out it was so my father wouldn't face police charges and instead the symptoms would be written of as my mental health issues.
I met my ex husband one month after that hotel experience and we grew up together. After my divorce I had sex with 12 other guys (total) and got pregnant by one of them (had an abortion) and after the abortion I have been celibate for 2 years and planning to stay celibate until marriage.
I'm scared of trusting again and I don't think I will. I was completely destroyed by the abortion. I'm still grieving my baby. It was a late term abortion. I'll never forget how the father said to me that he hopes I'm not some psycho bitch who'll keep the baby and ask him for child support. He was shaming me into having the abortion just to escape fatherhood.
The abortion is what made me remember the hotel experience when I was 17 years old. He knew what he was doing. He knew I was scared of pregnancy and sex without a condom, yet he had sex with me without a condom while I was unconscious. He raped me and I could have been pregnant at 17 years old. I laughed it off because whenever I told people they'd laugh about the experience. I was however also surrounded by red pillers - and I was an anti-feminist for years so I ran with that narrative of "Are you sure it was rape or not just your victim mentality?"
I have grown up feeling like "If I keep experiencing bad things, maybe I'm the bad person" and I went from islam to "law of attraction" that both offer the conclusion "You asked for it" At least, as bad as islam is, it doesn't blame it on the child's aura to attract horrible incidents, but law of attraction does.
I now feel like the gender war is a lazy escape (or rather a protection) from genuinely vetting people on an individual basis. Because as much as I have experienced horrible men, my mother was horrible too. The matriarchy should be smashed too. And I have met equally great men. I know that none of the men who subjected me to these atrocities were masculine men. Masculinity is a safe harbour. And these men were wicked in their souls. And I say that as atheistically as possible. There was always a horrible energy around them from the get-go. And I have met just as many women with horrible energy.
I wish we could learn to vet people out instead of blaming entire genders or races or other demographics. I made a promise many years ago that I will never fall for the trap of saying "all men are shit" and I'm glad I still haven't fallen for it. And it's the amount of shitty women that keeps me balanced. How ironic.

2023.03.30 13:29 Due_Albatross951 My "perfect' husband had an affair and gave me an std
I recently found out about my husband's affair with a coworker.
It's funny, I always thought something was going on between them and we even talked about it, where I made him promise me he'd tell me if something ever happened between them. Spoiler alert- it did. He didn't tell me.
They still work together though he swears he is not interacting with her. He spends most of his work day traveling.
Essentially he says he was in a bad head space and he felt unloved and on a random day she offered him oral and he accepted. He has trouble with new partners and couldn't get hard so they tried again the next day. He says he had a break down and it ended there and they never spoke of it again. He says he vowed to be a better man after that. Yet he still interacted with her at work and still gaslit me into believing I was crazy when he came home telling me stories about her.
He had every intention of sleeping with her but just has issues with new partners. He says he stopped because of me. I think that's bologna.
She is a younger, beautiful version of me. I say that because I am not attractive though I see similarities in us. Like I imagine she is what I would look like if someone photoshopped me into being beautiful. We have the exact same hair.
I am obsessed with the idea of what he found so special about her to throw away our family and marriage. He can't answer that. He says nothing. Clearly that is lie. He had an entire day to come to his senses and didn't.
I am struggling and slipping at work. Doing a terrible job. My every thought is consumed by images of them together. I am obsessively playing it back over and over.
He says he's sorry. I say he's sorry he got caught.
Oh, and I got hpv from it, have symptoms, and wake up thinking every morning that it may be the day I have cancer. I have to have places in my mouth removed and biopsied. All because he jumped at the idea for a beautiful woman to get him off.
I am so angry and I do not know how to process it. I always thought my husband was perfect and I've loved him with every fiber of my being since the day we met. I just wish he felt the same way.
I'm not strong enough to leave him. We've built a beautiful life together and despite everything he's done to me I still love him more than anything.
He's on the couch tonight because I had a mental break down and cried myself to death. He's "giving me space".
I wish I had been a better wife. Good enough and pretty enough to keep him happy.
He never confessed to me. He lied until the minute I told him I had proof. Then he suddenly came
He was supposed to be an honest man. But here I am on a reddit board talking about my husband's mistress.

2023.03.30 13:23 BookerTea3 Chat GPT ''Write me a story in the style of CS Lewis, about how Susan reacted after The Last Battle and what happened to her next, after she discovered her siblings had died in the train crash. Especially as she had thought that the adventures in Narnia had just been a childhood game.''
Once upon a time, there was a girl named Susan who, along with her siblings, had stumbled upon a magical land called Narnia. They had fought battles, defeated evil, and crowned kings and queens. But then, one day, they were summoned back to their own world.
Years had passed, and Susan had grown up. She had left her childhood games behind and become a practical, sensible woman. But then, she received a letter from an old friend, telling her that Narnia was in trouble once again.
Susan hesitated. She had almost forgotten about Narnia, and the idea of returning to a world of talking animals and magical creatures seemed ridiculous. But something inside her stirred, a faint memory of the joy and wonder she had experienced in that other world.
Finally, she made up her mind to go back to Narnia. She gathered her courage and stepped into the wardrobe, hoping against hope that the magic was still there.
But she was too late. Narnia was gone, destroyed by the great fire that had consumed everything. The only traces left were a few charred remains and the memories of the creatures who had once lived there.
Susan was heartbroken. She had lost not only a magical world but also her siblings, who had died in a train crash. She felt as if her entire childhood had been a lie, a game that she had played but that had never been real.
For a long time, Susan couldn't bear to think about Narnia. She buried herself in her studies and her work, trying to forget the pain of losing her family and her childhood dreams.
But then, one day, something happened that changed everything. Susan was walking home from work when she heard a faint sound, like the rustling of leaves. She turned around and saw a figure standing in the shadows.
It was Aslan, the great lion who had been the ruler of Narnia. He looked at Susan with his wise, kind eyes and said, "My dear child, do not despair. Your siblings are with me now, and they are at peace. But your journey is not yet over. There is still much for you to do in this world."
Susan was startled. She had never believed in talking animals, much less in a lion who spoke with the voice of thunder. But there was something in Aslan's gaze that made her believe.
She followed him into a clearing, where she saw a group of children playing. They were laughing and running, carefree and happy. Susan recognized them as children who had lost their parents, or who had been abandoned or neglected. They were the forgotten ones, the ones who needed love and care.
Aslan spoke again. "These children need you, Susan. They need your compassion, your kindness, and your wisdom. You have much to offer them, and they have much to teach you."
And so, Susan began a new journey. She became a foster mother, opening her heart and her home to children who had no one else. She listened to their stories, comforted their fears, and helped them find joy and hope in a world that could be cruel and harsh.
Years passed, and Susan grew old. But she never forgot the lessons she had learned in Narnia, or the love she had shared with the children who had come into her life. When she died, she knew that she had lived a life of meaning and purpose, and that she had made a difference in the world.
And as she closed her eyes for the last time, she heard a faint whisper, like the rustling of leaves. It was Aslan, saying, "Well done, my child. Well done."
