2021.09.20 22:35 skiimear Worried about a friend. Need advice.
My best friend has been in a relationship with a narcissist for 4 years. We live within the same city and I’ve never even met him. I can always tell when he’s moved back in because suddenly she’ll never let me come inside when we meet up (he’s changed jobs and moves around the country a bit very much like a serial killer). I assume she won’t let me meet him because she’s afraid that I’ll incite something that she’ll have to pay for. Which is fair, but clearly indicates that she knows how bad he is. She has never admitted to being struck by him, but he throws things a lot and she recently alluded that he’s pushed her.
Apparently he’s actually moving out, not to move somewhere else on a whim but for good (though he’s threatened this countless times and owes her lots of money), but I’m very nervous about the tensions within the apartment and the danger she may be in.
When the video of Gabby Petito came out it shook me up. The way she cries to the police is exactly the way my friend has cried to me. Just inconsolable. She’ll tell me about what’s upset her and then explain how she “pushed him” there. That if she just could be more positive then he wouldn’t be as upset with her. Seeing Gabby Petito cry about having a “mean vibe” made me think so much of my friend I couldn’t bear it. He tells my friend that she has a negative energy and that’s why her own family doesn’t come to visit her (her family is full of narcs too and she’s not bio related to her dad). He gaslights the shit out of her and will tell her that she misremembers things and is losing her mind. Funny how she’s sharp as a tack about everything we talk about and never forgets an important date in any of her friends’ lives.
Yesterday he “wouldn’t let her leave” to go on a walk, because if she disappeared he would be blamed. If something happens to her I will never forgive myself, but she’s convinced she needs to stick around to make sure he doesn’t pack anything that’s hers. I told her that I’ll come pack up her valuables with her and take them to my house so she can stay here for the week, but she hasn’t agreed. I know that she’s hoping to get validation from him before he’s gone, but I know it’s not coming and am very worried about what could be.
What do I do?

If I don't accept at $3, I'm not going to accept the same offer at $3.70 when it comes back around. Guess people around here spent all their money on the weekend and don't want to tip their drivers more than a buck.

2021.09.20 22:35 Makusimasu About the recent announcement
I feel like these are "Community" Anniversary events (a.k.a. only the Web events) as opposed to "In-game" anniversary events, which have yet to be fully revealed. My evidence is that the announcement was literally titled "Community Anniversary Events" and did not mention at all the log-in event, which would be included if this was everything they were doing for the anniversary. Also it would make sense for them to announce these events earlier than the in game events because they include submitting artwork, which requires prep time.
Now excuse me while I huff some more Hopium.

2021.09.20 22:35 bigfatpenguin48 Am I being an asshole by feeling “entitled” to living at home during college? *more details below*
So I’m a freshman in college seeking a pre-med major, and I chose the university in my town (mostly because it’s cheaper but also because I wanted to live at home). My mom told me that I should at least try living in the dorms, which I did for 2 weeks, which then resulted in a total meltdown (it’s very stressful in there for me- super overwhelming, it’s just not “my space”, there’s a whole social scene involved, roommates, it’s noisy etc).
However, my mom had to move back to AK to get a teaching job after losing her job here this spring. In order to keep the house, my sister and her boyfriend (both 22) decided to move into the house & pay rent to my mom.
I warned them that I might have move back home before I even started college because I figured I wouldn’t do well in the dorms. They were very against that, and wanted to turn my bedroom into an office. My mom backed them, saying that they only wanted me to come home 1-2x a week.
My sisters boyfriend understands nothing about autism- whereas my mom is pretty educated and my sister is alright with it too. I told all of them that this is a unique situation where they’re renting the house with my own bedroom in it, so expecting the house to be theirs and only theirs is just kind of selfish.
This has made me super frustrated… I feel like they don’t understand that I have a disability, yes I am low-needs but I still really struggle sometimes.
I tried to live in the dorms, and it was immediately clear that I couldn’t stay full-time in college if I did so (I have a few scholarships requiring me to be full time). Im trying to convince them to be okay with me being there… they say I’m too messy (which is accurate- but only in my room). Meanwhile they leave their stuff all over the place…
Am I the asshole here? Thank you guys…

2021.09.20 22:35 NoneTitled Daily existential crisis?
Hey guys, every day before I fall asleep I have an existential crisis, you know the usual "what happens after death?", "Am I just gonna disappear?", "Is there a higher conscience?" and other questions most of us ask themselves at some point in their life. Usually if these thoughts pop up during the day I can find something to distract myself and move on with my day. But when I lie in bed trying to sleep I can’t seem to stop and start spiraling till I have to fall asleep from exhaustion. Some days I’m lucky and fall asleep peacefully. I don’t know why I just find it hard to accept and I don’t know what to do anymore since it’s really starting to impact my mental well-being.
So what I wanted to ask you guys is, how do you cope with this or how do you accept the fact that some things will happen no matter what and that we might never know what the answer is? Any tips on maybe how to radically accept this or how to distract myself?

2021.09.20 22:35 LOLiseeyourundies [M4F] First impressions and embarrassing moments!
Nothing's more important than a good first impression.
It always feels like the love interest in a romantic comedy makes an entrance that elicits swoons and sighs, cool and composed and confident. It always looks like they have it all together: Everything is already figured out with an effortless brand of charm and poise. They might as well be straight out of a catalog for The Gap.
So what happens when a supposed Prince Charming-type doesn't find himself in any kind of position to make the Mister Right-esque first impression one might expect from him? What if our characters' meet-cute comes just as my character is blindsided by an embarrassing moment? And how might that tilt the dynamic of what might be a fairly ordinary love story?
Hi! I'm in my twenties and on the lookout for someone bold and playful enough to embark on telling a creative rom-com story. Of course, the flipped script in this case is that my character will be caught majorly on his back foot when he first encounters your character, and our story will explore how their dynamic unfolds after their meet-cute isn't exactly how he'd planned on meeting a potential crush.
Of course, a lot of the fun in planning will be settling on his fate, and who your character is in relation to him. Is he the college freshman in the dorm next door, who managed to lock himself out in his underwear? The sophomore who lives two stories up in the residence hall and found himself wrapped in a towel when the building's fire alarm went off? The university's new lacrosse captain, who got himself handcuffed to the goalpost as a kind of initiation prank? The unlucky transfer student who gets called up on stage at the college's annual start-of-the-semester silly hypnotism show?
And, just as vital to the story: Who is your character? A classmate, a neighbor, a fellow athlete? An innocent bystander, or a mischief-making prankster who's secretly pulled the strings from behind the scenes to lead to this moment? I want to leave it entirely open ended! If this post catches your attention, please share any potential character thoughts you might have in a message, and a potential predicament our intrepid male lead might find himself in as the subject line of your DM! (And it definitely doesn't have to be one of the ideas above; think of that as me brainstorming out loud.) I'm only looking to write with others in their twenties, or older. Fingers crossed for some orange envelopes and chat bubbles!

Can anyone suggest a store in the region where I can actually go and look at Cross Country Ski gear? I want to be able to get advice and see things in person before I buy a bunch of gear.
Also, any groups for beginners or just people that like to get out? Areas you like to go?
