Pro: face fit for radio Con: Voice not fit for radio :(

158 points · 6 months ago

Maybe like silent movies you could star in a silent radio show.

I'd watch it!

Maybe you two should date.

So basically you look like a radio? How long is your antenna exactly?

Trust me, the voice can carry you a long way. A good friend of mine is not conventionally attractive from a lot of standpoints, nor does he have money, or status, or any of those other things neckbeards on reddit whine about "needing"", but he does great with women due to two things: ridiculous amounts of confidence and a smooth, deep voice.

PRO: If I’m sad or need a distraction, I will bake things—most likely cookies.

CON: If you are the one that made me sad I will not let you eat any of them.

This sounds like justice, not a con at all.

I get the feeling it's worse than that.

SO: "Can I have a cookie?"

OP: silent glaring

SO: "So...okay." tries to take a cookie, gets hand slapped

OP: "I told you no cookies if you made me sad."

SO: "What did I do? I walked in and said 'Hello.'"

OP: "Yeah, but what tone did you say it in?" bursts into tears

We all know someone like that. And, honestly, we’ve all been someone like that in our worst moments.

SO: "What did I do? I walked in and said 'Hello.'"

OP: "Yeah, but what tone did you say it in?" bursts into tears

SO: <-- Really has no idea whatsoever what he did

Pro- I’ll constantly buy things for you. I.e. food, fun, etc.

Con- Instead of telling you right away when something is an issue, I let it boil me away inside until I blow up at you.

After typing this, I realize it’s not that fair of a trade. Lol

16 points · 6 months ago

Me too

I have the same issue but instead of confrontation I run away. What I've tried to do to address it is to just saddle up and openly communicate when you need to. If the other person reacts as negatively as some of the scenarios in my head that make me afraid to talk about the issue, then I shouldn't be with them anyway.

Soundproofing material. Doesn’t even have to be everywhere, just your bedroom. Coat the floor, walls, and ceiling in that stuff, and now you can sleep in absolute peace.

Just don’t slip and fall in there.

My experience is that this isn’t really effective for keeping noise out (vs. keeping it in) unless you actually spend $10K+ to rebuild the walls of the place. Have you tried this?

Eh, think of it like this:

It’s better than being broke, better than having to ask for rides, and who doesn’t love pizza? At least you’re trying. You’re doing better than I am, atm.

Pros: good cook, organized, laid back and willing to try to new stuff in bed

Cons: I'm not good at communicating when I'm angry/mad and am non-confrontational in relationships. So I grow resentful overt time and, trust me, it shows

It's ok tho, cause you are already aware of the problem, which makes you a step closer to solving it. Being resentful sucks overall and just isn't worth it. You are doing a good job!

If you're a male then you are the right fit for me! I am a high sex drive female who will only have sex when in a loving, committed relationship. Means I am sexually frustrated a lot!

[deleted]
7 points · 6 months ago

You're almost like me. It doesn't have to be a loving, committed relationship, but I don't like having sex with strangers. It's also exacerbated by the fact that I'm kind of shy so don't know that many people, thus a smaller pool of people to have sex with.

How....does your allergy to····weed manifest its self?

It depends on the type I guess, luckily I'd never smoked it before I found out. It's usually the smoke that gets me and I've been ok sometimes with just a stuffy nose. But other times my eyes puff up and I start crying with a running nose and can't stop. The worst was I got physically sick because I was at a public event in France and everybody was smoking it. Yeah...fun times...

I can relate. I love baking and will randomly bring over banana bread and cookies. But depression will make me not want to go out, try dating, or think that someone is genuinely interested in me. I’m working on it.

Pro: I'm loyal, like a dog.

Con: I'm horny like a stallion.

Edit: Since people keep saying it's not a con. The four previous relations I've had have all been rather non-sex driven. So, as a hyper-horny-sexual-charged-sex-loving-male-nymphomaniac(kinda.) My previous partners kinda didn't wana.

Meanwhile I still don’t see a “con”

12 points · 6 months ago

Agreed

Con: I'm horny like a stallion.

How is this a con?

As someone who is also horny like a stallion, it really is a con.

My girlfriend and I can't really have the sex I want to have because it hurts her and I want it all the time. It puts a strain on the relationship.

Pros: I value my indepenence. I won't drag you along to my shit, meet with my friends unless you want to (but I'll probably let you know that I'd rather hang out with them without you). I'm never bored. I have a bunch of hobbies/interests too keep me entertained so that won't be your job. I'm also a great cook with a high libido. I'm not big on presents. Give me a bag of crisps and I'll be happy (really happy). I'm not a picky eater. I'm moderately funny and easy going.
