2023.03.20 22:27 ThrowRA_softpoof I (23F) accidentally implied my SO (30M) cheated at a party and i'm scared it was fatal.

Throwaway for obvious reasons.
Last saturday, we (23F and 30M) went to a party with some of my closest friends. The place was full as hell, A LOT of people were there, some of them acquaintances of mine. By the time we arrived, everyone was happily drunk, but a few of my friends said they wanted to drink some more.
At some point, one of my male friends (30ish) wanted to go get more beer, and my partner offered to go with him. They went together and i stayed with the rest of the group and since the place was really really crowded, i told them before they went that we'd stay exactly where we were. Honestly, i was already expecting it'd be a little wait.
But i wasn't expecting to be the wait it actually was. Like six songs later, they're still away. A friend of mine says they're kind of taking too long and i agree. We were afraid something happened to them. 20 minutes later, we can't find them anywhere. Also he simply didn't take his phone since i was with mine. Stupid, i know, and we've learned that lesson the hard way.
Anyways, i tried calling the friend that was with him and the guy says "i'm next to a lamp post, your boyfriend went inside looking for you". I capital f Freaked Out. Went back to the crowd - nothing. I was so worried my friends had to reassure me multiple times before he simply shows up forty minutes later. By then, we were both relieved we found each other, but my night was already ruined.
We drank some more to calm down and after some time, my boyfriend says he needs to pee. I said i was going with him and at first he told me to just stay there and not leave, but i insisted. That's when things just deadass flatlined.
We go out through the parking lot and right then i instantly just blurted out a very spontaneous "were you making out with someone?"
I swear to God, it was like a spasm. I wasn't actively suspicious or anything, i was just scared something bad happened to his physical integrity. Never once, during the whole time he was gone, a single thought of cheating came up in my mind. But then it was like something pulled a trigger in my head and just like that i flat out asked him if he cheated on me.
He was deeply offended and i instantly regretted every word that came out of my mouth. "Why the hell would you ask that?". It hurt that bad. I apologized to him, said i didn't know why i asked it, that it just came out. Seriously, i apologized several times, but his face went from 100 to 0. He was just flat out hurt. He just nodded and we came back to our friends.
I'm terrified this is gonna be the end of us, i have no idea if he really forgave me, and right now i'm scared of bringing this up. We're being as affectionate as usual, went out on a date yesterday, but i sense that something is off. Maybe he let it go, maybe he didn't.
For context, he is the most caring, sweet, loyal and kind man on Earth. He's like a human golden retriever, that's how lovely he is. I don't think he would ever do that to me, to our relationship. We agreed that we had every intention of being endgame with each other. We want to get married in the future, become a family, grow old together. But i'm afraid none of this will happen because i didn't think twice before speaking.
TL;DR: My boyfriend disappeared for over an hour at a party we went together with our friends and when he showed up i blatantly asked him if he was cheating on me. He was hurt and i'm scared of talking about it any further and end us for good.

He will not give up! this guy is a mad man, an absolute devil, whatever it takes, he will pay it full price upfront!
Wisdom is sown everywhere in this novel, the spirit of humanity, resistance and fighting for the beyond, fighting both against God, Fate and everything human
the main struggle in the novel is against Fate Gu and fighting its shackles
if you do not feel the Absolute Excitment, adrenaline flowing through your veins in everyone of its chapters, you are reading wrong
This is a divine book bestowed on humanity, if you wanna descend into hell to look for what is Real, what creates this world, who you are really are in the deepest part of yourself, here you go
its a very long read, when you go in, leave this world behind completely, and become the story, believe everything in the story to be real
A Journey to the Beyond! this world is too small for people who look for the beyond, if you don't have that fire in your soul while and after reading this novel, you are reading it wrong

returning in time, dying, suffering, cruelty, darkness, hell itself, yet who are you, you are Fang Yuan, the world is too small to contain you, you are a raging inferno ready to conquer everything, whatever it takes!
If you still want to live after this, something must be wrong with you, this has shown the absolute fire that Life is, I've lived through everything in it, put myself in it, was thrown everywhere
This here encapsulates the Paradox and Insight of humanity, the philosophical questions, the deepest inquiries, looking and wanting to become Infinite

2023.03.20 22:27 RizzyR65 Searching for an old book, any help appreciated

Hello all,
I have recently been looking for an old book that I read in middle school almost 10 years ago. I found it in my school library and it was about male adolescents, kind of a guide/introduction to puberty. It was not a scientific book about anatomy or anything it was more like how to navigate society and life while everything is changing in you as a young man. I owe this book a lot to who I came to be today, it was written by a man obviously and he shared life lessons and ideals that I still have today.
Anyways I do not remember the title of the book but one day I'd like to share it with my nephew or son if I have one. So here is what I remember, I don't expect to find it because I remember so little about it but any suggestions are appreciated.
- The author is married and he gave an example where he portrayed himself as a bear I think (some animal) and he saw other female bears in public and would think of the desire to leave his bear wife and pursue this new bear, but he pulled himself back to reality because he knew it was nonsense.
- The author went over how young boys randomly get "tents in their pants". Apologies for being inappropriate; he went on to reassure the readers that it was a part of growing up.
- I believe the overall message of the book was for young boys to understand how to control their desires as they aged and understand that what they are experiencing is normal.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

2023.03.20 22:27 MissRippedJeans Wait so Circle of Dreams don’t get the Dream spell until level 14?

Druids that take the Circle of Land (Grassland) can cast Dream but Circle of Dreams can’t until they reach level 14? Am I getting that right?
I was playing a Circle of the Land Druid until my character encountered an entity that gave me an option to save my friend if I give up my memories of my circle. I’ve been researching into the other circles and thought Dreams looked really fun considering my character is constantly putting her party to sleep so they can contact loved ones or so that I can torment our enemies in their sleep. That, and the utility the Dream Circle provides.
Can anyone make it make sense that the Dream spell isn’t available to Circle of Dreams?

2023.03.20 22:27 RedLabelIB I (31F) have absolutely had enough of my best friend/Ex Girlfriend (54F)

I’ve posted a few posts since this is all started. If you want to go back and read them for some context.
So after I stuck up for myself, we just stopped talking. I came into work every day and just ignored her. We kept up appearances so other people in the office didn’t know we aren’t okay - but we just stopped talking unless we absolutely had to. I started to feel better once I knew it was all over and she was just leaving me to it.
A little bit of context - I’m having a really hard time at the moment in my personal life. My mum and stepdad split up last year and are in the process of selling the house I currently live in - so I have been scrambling to find my own place as well as dealing with my mum who is stressing me out, it’s constant arguments and stress at home so it’s just a lot for me to deal with as well as trying to buy my own place. Anyway, I have bought my apartment and I’ve been going through the process for the last 6 months. There’s been so much stress and humps on the road - I’ve been struggling and this has all had a big effect on my mental health. I got given a possible completion date of 27th March. So I’ve booked 3 weeks off so I can get moved in, paint and get situated etc. everyone at work has been asking for updates on my house so I made sure I text my ex so that if anyone mentioned me and the house she already knew and didn’t look like an idiot not knowing what her “best friends” house situation was. The text from me was this:
I’m just reminding you that I’m not in on Monday. I booked all those random Mondays off to give myself 2 days rest. And I’ve got from 27th booked as possible moving out date so booked 3 weeks.
Her reply was:
I’ll do your messages don’t worry. Enjoy your rest, you deserve it.
That was a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday, I decided to remind her just Incase she forgot. I sent this:
** I’m off again tomorrow just reminding you. And then I’m off next week for 3 weeks.**
Her reply:
Hope the move goes well. And I hope you’ll both be very happy x
So I am under the impression here that she knows I’m moving in on 27th and that I’m off for 3 weeks. As the message said, I was off work today and I was going for the final viewing at my new place. As I’m sitting in my car waiting to go in I get this message:
** (colleagues name) just told me you are moving in on the 27th. I felt foolish saying I didn’t know anything about it. We are now at the end of the road - completely. There is no point sending the odd text occasionally, so Goodbye and good luck.**
I completely flipped out because I DID tell her. I’m sick to death of these random messages from her out of the blue with accusatory tones. We ended up arguing through messages for around an hour with her saying I’m a hypocrite etc. and then when she decided she’d had enough of the arguing she told me to stop messaging her, like it was me who started it.
This woman has made me ill. Buying my first home is supposed to be exciting and this whole experience has been clouded by her upsetting me and making me feel bad.
I’m so tired.

2023.03.20 22:27 Wide-Food-4310 Yay! I got engaged on Saturday! Need urgent advice re: ring!

I got engaged on Saturday and I'm so happy to soon be able to call my best friend my husband. I am looking for some advice about my engagement ring. It seemed like it was really important to my fiance that he pick out the ring himself. I sent him links to rings I really loved, but he ended up choosing a ring from a local family-owned jeweler. It's really pretty! But if I could, I would change a few small things. The band is pretty thick and I wanted something more dainty, not to mention it's a little uncomfortable. The diamond is a bouquet style and it sits quite high off the band (I think it's supposed to create the illusion that the diamond is bigger than it is), but again, I was looking for something a little more dainty. We are going on Wednesday to the jeweler to get the ring resized. So my question is, do you think I can inquire about potentially changing the band and the setting? Is that something that a jeweler could even do at this point, or would I need a whole different ring? Will I hurt my partner's feelings if I try to change it at all? What would you do in my position?

2023.03.20 22:27 feraljellybean Looking for some advice on betta care!

Hello there, I am in a bit of a strange situation and am seeking some advice. About 3 months ago, I went into PetSmart and was just looking around at the different fish for fun, when I noticed a male betta with one blind eye.
I picked him up and looked at him and he is the sweetest little guy. I felt really bad for him, but I honestly wasn’t looking for another pet and am not familiar with fish care too much. I put him back and hoped someone else more experienced would adopt him.
Over the span of the last 3 months though, every time I have gone, I noticed the other fish would be gone, but he was still there. It seemed no one wanted him. Today when I went in, I noticed that not only was he still there, but he was in absolutely filthy water. It was completely yellow with gunk all inside of it and I felt horrible for him.
He had been inside this tiny cup for at least 3 months (who knows how long he was there before I noticed him) and he wasn’t being cared for properly whatsoever. When he swims, he leans to the left a bit because he can only see out of his left eye. I made the decision right then that I was taking him home.
They gave him to me for 50% off and I grabbed a starter kit for now until I can get him something better when I get my paycheck. However, as mentioned above, I’m not really familiar with betta care. I just didn’t want to leave him in that condition anymore and I figured a clean, somewhat larger tank would be better than a dirty plastic cup.
So far, he is seeming happier in his new tank and he was stoked once I gave him some food. He’s currently still exploring the new tank as well and it makes me happy to see him out of the cup at least.
I’m wondering if anyone here has any tips or advice on caring for this little guy? He is a white “platinum” male betta. Aside from his one eye being blind, he seems healthy aside from that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated (:

2023.03.20 22:26 Agreeable_Sunny How common is it to be misclassified as an IC, and should I report my company?

I get the feeling that this will make me seem naive, but it's taken a lot of time to put the pieces together.
I've been "freelancing" with an A/V company for a couple years. Technically, I started with them before the pandemic but didn't really work regularly with them until Fall 2021. Though it's technically a freelance job, I was on a consistent schedule with them until recently.
Every week, the manager at the location I primarily work at would send out a schedule via Whatsapp and asked me for confirmation. I could always say if I wouldn't be available on a certain day but was often pressured for refusing (at one point, I heard that one of the higher ups was mad that I refused to work on Saturdays for a period of time).
There were about 4 or 5 of us who were considered regulars who would be sent that weekly schedule. There were also others who occasionally worked, either one-offs or sporadically, but they weren't there weekly. However, all of us were considered independent contractors.
Sometime last year, I started to suspect that I was misclassified, but I wasn't that familiar with labor laws. However, as I've learned more over time, I think I've been taken advantage of. -I never actually signed a contract with them, and in the interview, there was no mention of being 1099. -I filled out an employment application. -I was given an invoice template that I've seen other "freelancers" use. It seems like it was created by the company.
And when it comes to day to day work:
-They provide all the equipment that I use. -I get brought in for a certain time period, but they tell me to do different things, ranging from set/strike or event operation to even things like building work cabinets. Other non-regulars only do what they are brought in to do. -I'm given a list of equipment to use for the events and am sometimes told specifically how to set up the event space.
All this being said, since the beginning of the new year, I've gone from getting 30+ hours of work a week to on average less than 20. And this has been the case for all of the other regulars. Though I have W2 income from last year from another job, I don't know if I can file for unemployment right now. And frankly, I think I should report them and get my tax money back. I think there's a good chance that it would destroy their business as they've recently lost their biggest property, and I worry that they will try to go after me in one way or another.
Just looking for opinions. Thanks.

2023.03.20 22:26 Empty_Pattern9292 Questions about X-Rite and colour calibration (16ACHg6 laptop)

I decided to setup HDR recently and it sent me down a rabbit hole of ICC profiles and colour management. This install of my system is freshly setup so I only installed vantage etc
However I learned about a software called X-Rite and in deep documentation found my display is compatible and a download link in one of the manuals ( page 32)
I installed X-Rite, disabled HDR temporarily, clicked restore profiles from its settings page and it installed colour profiles (TPLCD_1600) which are set to be used and a base one called (sRGB IEC619.......) and then I enabled HDR again with these new profiles
The display now looks good but I am just wondering was this the correct steps for setting all this up as I'm unfamiliar with HDR and don't want to find out in a year or so that it's been wrong all this time etc

2023.03.20 22:26 Tight-Page-5192 I Need A Hacker To Change My University Grades

[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) — — -Sometimes students fail their exams due to low-quality grades, which has a detrimental effect on their future life.
I need a hacker to change my university grades. Sometimes students fail their exams due to low-quality grades, which has a detrimental effect on their future life. If we get a job, it’s hard to get promoted because we have low-quality grades. One way is getting a consult from your school adviser or teacher about how you can change your low grade into a good one. And the other way is to change the grade through hacking.
The question that is on every student’s mind is how to change grades. I need a hacker to change my university grades. There are several ways to do this. You can discuss with the professor or deal with a third party like a writing agency, or you can use your academic knowledge and write your paper yourself. If you want to get good results without any trouble, then it is best. But if you want a good result without doing this then you need to hire a good hacker. The hacker will change your grade according to your needs. You do not have to do anything about this.

I need a hacker to change my university grades
I need a hacker to change my university grade but now the question may come where can I find a hacker? Finding a professional hacker is a little difficult. Many hacker services or agencies can be found by searching online. But the amount of trusted hackers is very low. I have an explication for this problem.
Can I hire a hacker to change a grade?
This will be the question presented to you when you need to change the school grade. Being a university, college or high school student is a matter of stress and many students understand the pain of bad grades. A poor final grade can be devastating for undergraduate and career dynamics.
Having the mentality of not graduating and having to repeat difficult exams forces students to look for hackers to change school grades and worldwide statistics are on the high-grade change. It is very easy to find a hacker on the internet and accept his services. Anyone can do this at home through their mobile and net.
You need to believe in yourself that you can learn to change your grades without any help. Online grades can be changed to show your parents’ grades. Students often search like this, I need a hacker to change my university grade.
Hackers are breaking borders and connecting the world within short distances. School grade exploitation is a common thing. Achieving your goals requires skills and techniques to change your grades and unique software. What is common in school grade changes? The goal is to get good grades. Did you finalize the score? The truth is that despite the efforts of universities to secure their grading systems, grades are now more accessible to hackers than ever before.

How to choose a professional hacker?
There are real hackers to hack grades and increase your GPA in your college and university. We have noticed that a new generation of hackers now has websites in addition to the Deep Web.
We all know the stories that originated from the Dark Web of software, malicious apps, and other infamous items that go down. I would not recommend hiring a hacker a second time to change my school grades from the Dark Web. It’s a notorious initiative that I wouldn’t encourage anyone to do, but it really helps through the platform when I use the best method of hiring hackers to change my school grades.
Why hire a hacker to change grades
Grade change is considered to be the best thing for students around the world. To become a hacker you need prerequisite skills. Grade change is invalid and when changing your grade, just consider changing your grade and not everyone’s grade in the class. When you need a hacker to change your university grade, think of professional ethical hackers for hire.
Changing university grades for hacker recruitment would not be the final step. To increase GPA you need to consider your grades with simple strategies. How to hire a hacker to change a university grade is a step in the right direction if you consider identification. You can take any hacker to help you monitor the steps.
Finally, students find it difficult to get their grades. The study will not depend on you changing grades from hackers. When you are a student, you can change your score from F to A or you increase your grades. This effect when you are a student.

How to hack university database system to change grades
Hacking school systems means you need to know about cybersecurity, database protocols, and much more. Hackers can easily do this for you. Adjust your college grades, transcripts. If they are some hackers who can easily access the database and I would advise you to ask which method. First of all, don’t choose the cruel power, it can tear down the school’s server and slow down its website.
Is it possible to hack the school system and change your grade? Someone asked this question on a popular online Q&A website. The answer is — yes! And you are really lucky to have found this article.

How to hire a hacker to change the transcript
I need a hacker to change my university grades, what comes to your mind when you want to hack the school system? There are different methods applicable to school grades. What do you claim, the total overhauling of your grades, the increase in GPA? So, when changing your grades, you should also keep this advice in mind from the advice in this article: When hacking grades, hacking your own score will have a huge impact on other students which will cause problems for you.
It may sound ridiculous but it is true. Hacking is not like the movie in the real world and it is a bit difficult and working. You should consider a professional to look after your work. Some students make some mistakes when it comes to grade change and at first, they choose the key-logger, although it seems cool if you try to hack your teacher I would recommend not using this method. Hire a hacker if possible or use online hacking training for this purpose.
[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
Hire a hacker to change university grade
The result I have chosen for professional change is that you can use highly skilled individuals or groups and these groups know their categories. If you hire a hacker to change your university grades, all you need to know is:
Hiring professional hackers to change university grades would not be the final step. Your grades should be considered along with simple strategies to increase your GPA. How to hire a hacker to change university grades is a step in the right direction you need to consider on your own.
Students find it difficult to get their grades. The study will not depend on you changing grades from hackers. When you are a student, you can change your score from F&A to this effect when you are a student.
In short
There are opinions and disagreements about hacking your school website. Changing your grades requires your experience and skills to securely hack your school portal. Alternatively, you can hire a professional hacker to hack school, college, and university grades.
At this age where everyone races to get good grades and then get good jobs. Your results play an essential role to get a good job. No worries if you have a low-quality grade. You can easily change the grade by hiring a hacker.

2023.03.20 22:26 Darkchildex I'm really trying to justify the price of the apple watch ultra.

I'm really trying to justify the price of the apple watch ultra.
So my 5 year old Galaxy watch pretty much just died, it charges, turns on then dies after the screen is on for 5 seconds. I really , really loved this watch. The rotating bezel is classy, having access to so many beautiful watch faces, the decent battery life, I could leave my phone in my locker and just use my watch. This watch was perfect for my needs. The price point of $400 canadian at the time was a little daunting but in the end it was worth it.
I've never owned an apple watch, despite having a few apple products, I've always leaned to samsung because Samsungs ecosystem was more open. I see Apple product as overly trendy , and alot of ppl by their products for perceived clout. So apple marks their product up because they know idiots will buy it.
Then I saw the apple watch ultra ... in canada it retails for the ridiculous sum of $1100 and can only be used with a damn apple phone. Sadly , Samsung followed suit with they're newest galaxy watch pro 5 which only works with android product. (I hate this so much).
Comparing the 2 watches , I have to admit the apple watch ultra is just better despite the shorter battery life. I'm a dude who likes nice watches , but I cringe when I think I might become one of the "idiots" if I pick this up.
I mean honestly I'm not a diver, I do hike with my dog but I'm not a foresr ranger who goes on 20k hikes. I like the look of apple watch ultra, the screen is really stunning and the display looks more vivid than the galaxy watch pro 5. It's a gorgeous watch.
I can afford it, but my mind still recoiles at that price. Plus I'll have to buy a damn apple phone to even use it!!!
My wrist feels barren and I don't like it. Rip my beautiful galaxy watch. Why oh why did you have to die?
I'm sure I'm gonna hear alot of comments from ppl who are solely team apple. I'm just not that "guy" the brand simply doesn't matter to me. I love functionality and look. This damn watch has me on the hook.

‘We Never Thought a Bank So Successful Could Collapse So Fast’ The wall street information.....but don't believe it all
On Wednesday evening, March 8, employees received an e-mail about SVB's plan to sell shares to raise capital. Most saw the message as routine. The next morning, SVB's stock plummeted.
SVB collapsed on March 10 after a flood of deposits. On Friday, the bank's parent company filed for bankruptcy.
SVB's first office was opened in 1983, in San Jose. The area was the birthplace of Apple Inc, Oracle Corp. and Atari, but many established banks were wary of young companies with little operating history.
Over the years, deposits grew to nearly $40 billion at the end of 2015, up from about $14 billion at the end of 2010, according to Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. reports.
For context, did you know that SVB's rapid growth and its reliance on the private equity world caused its abrupt bankruptcy a week ago? It also put pressure on borrowers to keep most of their cash at SVB, which made some customers nervous.
As the tech industry grew in 2020 and 2021, SVB benefited and its shares soared. Management kept much of the money in longer-term government-backed mortgage bonds and Treasury debt, normally safe investments. However, when the Fed took action to curb inflation, management ignored the change and relied on internal risk models.
A bank's risk managers are supposed to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, assess how the bank's balance sheet would hold up under stress, and otherwise protect the bank from harm.
"They were a mix of a real bank that could handle transactions and lend money, but they were also fun people to party with," said Jonathan Medved, an Israeli private equity investor who worked with SVB for more than 30 years.
SVB managers tried to improve the bank's finances by selling shares. The bank had stashed much of its money in long-term assets, such as mortgages and Treasury bonds, which it could not, or would not, sell immediately. Its values plummeted as rates rose.
The bank's asset-liability management committee had modeled the possible changes in interest rates and did not anticipate the increase, the person close to the bank said. SVB did not have a chief risk officer for most of the year, and the bank had reassigned responsibilities
“It was a baffling asset-liability mismatch,” said Mr. Wilcox, the former CEO.
The bank also had let expire interest-rate hedges, or protections, on its bond portfolio, leaving the bonds vulnerable to the declines as the rates rose.
Don't believe what they tell you, Silicon Valley Bank was a very conservative bank. Out of their ~200 billion in assets, very little (<0.5%) was venture debt lending. As you can see in their Q4 Balance Sheet, they had 15 billion in cash/cash like securities, about 120 billion investment securities and 70 billion in loans.
Within that 120 billion investment securities, it is almost entirely treasuries and Agency MBS/CMO and CMBS with a touch of muni bonds. You can't build a more conservative book if you tried. As these are all effective government securities as the GSEs are still in conservatorship under the treasury. For years US banks have been derisking and now most of their balance sheets consists of government or quasi government securites which have almost no default risks.
Now looking at the loan book, you can see the bulk of it is in global fund banking and investor dependent. Global Fund banking is an extremely safe segment, it consists of largely funding or bridging loans to venture capitalist making transactions. So for example if a VC wants to invest in company A, but they want to wait 2 months before drawing down from their LPs, they will go to SVB to get a credit line for this purpose. This is an extremely safe business model as Venture/PE Funding is contracted funding and there has been basically no defaults on these types of loans ever in history. Then you have private bank, which consisted of lending to rich people over collateralized through the value of their houses, which is also a pretty safe business model as their asset coverage typically exceeds 150% of the loan value.
So wtf is happening, this is a bank that is holding like 2/3 of its book in government papers and the rest in fairly safe lending. The speculative lending to early tech business represent <0.5% of the book.
The answer is the federal reserve, so leave us your comment.

2023.03.20 22:26 ThrowRAtossed416 M31 Needs Advice with F28 and our LTR of 7+ years.

TLDR; I was in love with my gf, she broke up with me. We were apart for a year and some change before we reconciled and started dating. Now we have been together for about 7 years total and I’m hesitant on marriage. May be influenced by someone else.
I apologize in advance that some detail will have to be omitted for privacy concerns. This will also be a long story as I am very confused and have never been in this type of situation before.
We began dating when we were young, 24 and 21. Previously to her, I was in multiple relationships where she was in one serious one that ended a few months prior to us dating. We virtually skipped over any honeymoon phase due to personal reasons on my end, and jumped straight into a serious relationship. Over the next few years, I swore I was going to marry this woman. She was everything I was looking for at the time. Smart, beautiful, sociable, and my family loved her. She had the qualities that would make her an excellent mother and wonderful wife.
Even though we’ve had common relationship problems, there was never a moment where we had huge disagreements. Over the years we grew extremely close with each other. When she finished up her degree, she had an opportunity to intern in a different state on the opposite side of the country from where we lived at the time. I was still in school finishing up my degree. We also both lived with our parents at the time due to financial reasons. I was so excited for her to start this internship, as it would be an excellent stepping stone into the career she wanted. She, on the other hand, was nervous about being long distance for about a year, but I ensured her we were strong enough and communicate well enough for us to make it a year. I was wrong.
Finances were tight, but I made every effort to try and fly out to visit her as often as I could. I would also try to set up times to text/call/FaceTime but with the time differences it became difficult. I was ahead by 3 hours and often went to sleep early so I could commute to school. I flew out one last time to celebrate her birthday, and it was quite possibly one of the most miserable weeks of my life. I’ve never felt so unloved, uncared for, and disregarded in my life. I felt like I was sleeping with a stranger. We barely touched each other, she walked ahead of me as we were exploring the city, and basically ignored me when I met her new group of friends.
I flew home, called her and told her how I felt. I told her I understood we are in a rough patch but she was the woman of my dreams and I want to fight for what we had. She blindsided me by absolutely breaking my heart. At this point we were together for a little over 3 years. I was devastated. Confused. Broken. At this time, I have no idea if she was cheating on me. I never cared to ask.
Fast forward in time about a year. She’s reached out a few times but I basically kept things short. I had a new job that paid well, and was focused on meeting new people. Covid hit, and she found herself back home and she reached out me to see if I wanted to meet up and talk. Every logical fiber in my body was telling me to run, but my emotions overcame me and against my better judgement I agreed to meet and talk. I never asked if someone else was the cause of the break up, or what her rationale was. I also never asked if she saw someone while we were apart, mostly because we were broken up and I was talking to other people as well. We ended up reconciling and began dating again.
We ended up moving in together after some time. During this period I thought everything was back to normal. However, I noticed I would not tell people I was in a relationship unless specifically asked. If I did tell someone, I kept it insanely minimal. I would find excuses to change the subject or would say I keep my work and private life separate, which I very much do. But omitting information such as being in a serious relationship should’ve got me thinking something was wrong beforehand.
We were living together when I sprung the news I had to move to a new state to finish grad school, and she uprooted her entire life to move with me and support me, partially because of what happened in our past.
To put things into perspective, we’ve now been together a little over 7 years total. We’ve discussed marriage, children, future goals, the works. I would’ve married her, but there has always been something that made me hesitant. Now I do love her, she is still an amazing person despite what we’ve been through.
To complicate the situation, before we left, a woman who I found attractive at work exchanged contact information with me and we’ve been talking more frequently. The field I work in is predominantly women, and I interact with very driven, beautiful, funny women daily. There’s always been mutual attraction between myself and other women, but I’ve never felt the desire to ruin my home life over one of them. I find myself drawn to her, and check my phone waiting to see if she has sent me anything. I find myself wanting to pursue this new woman more than wanting to stay in this relationship. However, this other woman is in a different state. I understand crushes happen, but this feels like more.
So here I am. In a new state with someone who I thought I was 100% sure on marrying, who is 100% committed to seeing the relationship succeed and I feel myself pulling away to potentially pursue someone else in another state.
I know how this sounds, and I’ve guilted myself into telling my current partner my hesitancy on marriage, which blindsided her and put me in a position to figure out what I want.
I’m not sure if pursuing this new woman would result in a fruitful relationship, but I can’t stop thinking about the possibilities. On the other hand, I do love my partner. We’ve been through so much together and are generally happy, but I fear my hesitancy may be coming from somewhere else. Is it this new woman? Is it from unhealed wounds from the previous break up?
I’m afraid I never truly recommitted to my partner and got back together because I was more afraid of being alone. Now I have these new intense feelings, which may not be reciprocated, that is causing me to overanalyze everything and rethink my current relationship.
Again, I know how this all sounds. I know people will tell me to break up and pursue the other girl, drop the idea of the other woman and fix what I have, or drop both of them and fix myself. They are all reasonable suggestions and I cannot justify any of them. I love and respect my partner, but I feel selfish not matching her current intentions. I’m not sure if what I’m feeling is cold feet, insecurity, immaturity, or all of the above.
I need 3rd party perspective, which is why I turned here. I’ve been trying to figure this all out on my own without success. Any and all insight is greatly appreciated.

2023.03.20 22:26 Shuttle5worth Think I overfilled my transmission fluid last night and today it leaked while driving on interstate.

Yesterday I topped off my tf and today while I was driving on interstate, my rpm was higher than normal and white smoke came out under hood. I immediately pulled in parking lot and saw red fluid on tire and under car so I knew it was the tf. I looked online and found that I most likely overfilled it and pressed built up causing it to leak. It said to drain the fluid and put new in which I did and my car is fine now but I'm wondering if it damaged anything and could it happen again?

2023.03.20 22:26 justinmh Competitive Yahoo League - 2 openings

I’m looking for two active, knowledgeable managers to join a competitive gold-level 12 team dynasty/deep keep league. The league is in its fourth year. The available teams finished ninth and tenth last season, but the rosters are strong and ready to compete (see below).
Format is standard 5x5 season-long roto. Rosters are 27 players deep plus a "farm system" of up to 8 prospects or other inactive players. Managers are allowed to keep up to 20 players from their roster each season in a "keep forever" format. This will allow for roughly 150 rostered players to be turned over and entered into the draft pool, along with all available free agents, unclaimed prospects, international signees, etc. The league does not use maximum years, salaries, or any other type of keeper restriction.
The online draft is scheduled for Sunday March 26 at 2:00 PM CT. The draft order will be determined based on prior year standings and a "non-snaking" order will be used. Keeper selections and league dues ($10) are due ASAP. There is a $100 cash prize for first place and $20 for second place. We use LeagueSafe for dues and payouts.
Shoot me a message if you are interested. Only the best should apply!
Roster 1: Austin Riley, Alex Bregman, Riley Greene, Jasson Dominguez, Austin Martin, Jazz Chisholm, Pablo Lopez, Jesus Luzardo, Drew Rasmussen, and others
Roster 2: Yordan Alvarez, Brandon Drury, CJ Cron, Cody Bellinger, Noelvi Marte, Gerrit Cole, Kyle Wright, Shohei Ohtani (pitcher), Chris Sale, Michael Kopech, and others

2023.03.20 22:26 havejubilation Experience with failure to thrive/eating concerns?

Hi all,
Just looking for support/insight/feelings of non-alone-ness related to failure to thrive. Sorry, it’ll probably be long.
My daughter is a little under 4 months old. She was born at >90th percentile, and has dropped to about the 4th since then. There have been stretches where she hasn’t really gained anything, and then stretches where her gains are about or just below the daily target. We’ve hit the point though where her doctor is more concerned, and so she’s ordered a battery of tests. I keep trying to tell myself that we don’t really know anything yet, but it’s still very stressful and confusing.
My daughter eats a ton and is pretty high energy. She generally sleeps well at night, but seems too interested in everything to want to sleep much during the day (meaning, she’s definitely not too sleepy from lack of food). She seems to be hitting the milestones in typical fashion.
This is obviously stressful on its own, but it’s also stressed me out considerably when it comes to feeding. I was aiming for EBF, but knew it might not work out. With her initial slow weight gain, her doctor said she suspected I had low production, although my daughter generally seemed content after nursing. Later a lactation specialist said she thought my daughter had trouble extracting milk, and thought some bottles might be helpful, just to know what she was getting.
I did all the things to help increase production, and started to pump more regularly and supplement with formula because I couldn’t pump enough while nursing to keep up with the doctor’s recommendations. Then my daughter seemed to only be willing to nurse first thing in the morning and if she woke up in the middle of the night, so we went from supplementing with bottles to doing bottles except at those times.
My daughter can be kind of erratic with her feeding preferences though. Now sometimes she’ll want to nurse during the day and sometimes she’ll refuse to nurse at the times she usually does. I don’t want to deny her when she wants to nurse, but also worry that the inconsistency is bad for her.
I also think my supply is good now (if that was even the issue), but I admit I’m stressed by not knowing how much she’s taking in when nursing, and every ounce feels so important.
It’s also just stressful not knowing how much she’s taking in when nursing. She’s nursing on average 2-3 times a day and then getting about 20-24 ounces of food in bottles (mostly my milk, usually at least a small amount of formula per day). She seems to like eating and seems to accept food basically anytime. Part of me would love to transition to nursing more when I’m at home, but another part of me is too nervous about intake. Anytime she’s had a lull in growth, I’ve been convinced it’s because I’ve let her nurse too much and that’s impacted her intake.
I don’t know where I’m going with all this, other than needing to vent. It’s scary and frustrating to feel like she’s probably eating enough and has good energy but just isn’t growing.
I also just needed a space to share how frustrating the poor care was that I received from my delivery hospital. They portrayed it as if they would really help set me up with supports, but I feel like I’ve been figuring out feeding and everything else from like, Instagram videos and googling. They messed up my referral for lactation support like 3 times, and their education on pumping and nursing turned out to be really poor. That might not be an uncommon experience, but I’ve felt so alone and unsupported throughout a lot of this process, and I really wish I had known to do some things so differently.
Thanks to anyone who made it through this novel. It just felt good to get it off my chest.
