I just realized that little symbol is a piece of cake and not an envelope. I’ve been using Reddit for so long and never knew what this meant and every time I asked someone would give me some asshole sarcastic answer. Wow I am slow...

Sameeeee

Everyone in this thread is making it seem like it's just whatever, and people who don't like it are shitty. But it's literally blood, and tons of people out there just don't like blood touching them, no matter whose it is. Is that so wrong? It doesn't mean they love the person less or anything. And the cleanup can be pretty significant. I, personally, don't want me or my bed to be covered in blood, from any source. Thread PSA from an alternate viewpoint: NOT LIKING PERIOD SEX DOES NOT MAKE YOU A BAD PERSON.

It’s one thing to not like it and it’s another to display a disgust towards it. I’ve heard too many a time how gross it is from individuals of the opposite sex (including ex partners).

The two are not very different at all. There is nothing wrong with someone thinking blood during sex is gross. It doesn't make them a jerk, or even slightly weird at all. I'd even go as far as to say that it's very, very common for people to be grossed out by period sex. I'm just saying those people shouldn't be made to think their feelings are wrong or abnormal, which seems to be happening a lot in this thread.

Ok but I think that what people are trying to get at was that displaying such feelings can make your partner feel insecure about a COMPLETELY NORMAL bodily function. Sure made me feel that way.

It’s ok to not like it but to be so utterly disgusted by it and displaying those feelings to your partner is just..inconsiderate.

My best date was an eventful one.

We went to Malibu beach and just chilled in the sun, I was terrified of the water so he was teaching me how to dive in the waves and he swam while I was on his back. At one point I didn’t dive a wave correctly and he tried to duck in to save me, he ended up smashing my toe so we left the water. My toe started aching at that point and I also started getting a rash on my whole body!!! (Apparently my sensitive skin can’t handle the oceans pollution) He started freaking out as I was covered in this icky rash with a broken toe lol. He ended up taking me the ER where he carried me in cause it hurt to walk at that point.

Turns out my toe was broken lol. They gave me two shots on my buttcheeks to calm the rash and I left with a boot on my right foot. He took me to dinner that night with my boot on and all. Had a romantic dinner and couldn’t stop laughing at the image of me bent over the table, covered in sand, cold as hell, getting shots on my butt 😂 it was a fun night indeed

Of course not, if I loved them back and was able to move past this person. I would probably have a conversation with this person and be like "Hey. I'm going to test the waters here. I'm ready if you are, but if you're not ready then I'm done waiting"

He has already gotten a little jealous about me dating other guys and I have to remind him he has no say unless he would like to have a GENUINE say and neither of us want that.

But you’d still check in with the other person?

Original Poster2 points · 23 days ago

If I still felt the same way I do now (however if I'm that serious with someone else, Im assuming I won't. So probably not).

Also, he could definitely have spoken by now if I'm that serious with someone else. If not, I'm okay with moving on, ya know?

Ahhhhh understood, wish you the best of luck! 😊

I don’t know your story or history, but this would be a deal breaker for me.

My previous husband stopped having sex entirely around 4 years before I left him... and that destroyed my self confidence and in my own eyes my worth as a human. He didn’t say those words yours did exactly but it was more or less the same.

I hope you can work this out or reach a place of peace and move on to someone who won’t make you feel so badly.

I could only imagine how painful that must’ve been. I absolutely adore physical affection and it’s one of the forms in which I feel the closest and most loved by a partner.

Im sorry you had to go through that, I hope life (and sex) is a lot better you deserve it!!!❤️

I feel your pain, I was exactly like this.

I was coerced and forced to have sex with a guy who I considered to be a good friend of mine a couple years ago, from then on I felt like sex was all I had to offer to a guy. It also didn’t help that my parents had divorced around the same time so my whole ideal of true love and healthy relationships flew out the window.

From then on I would have sex with every partner within our first or second encounter. I always felt disgusting afterward and felt I needed to shower for hours. But during the sex, I felt loved and wanted which is a feeling I constantly craved. That want had gotten so unbelievably viable to my self worth that i even kept an ongoing sexual relationship with the “friend” who had taken advantage of me. I’d cry for days, sleep with him and then cry all over again.

I really do understand where you’re coming from as I also feel a bit detached, maybe even empty during sex. I’m still trying to figure out why I am the way I am.

I wish you the best of luck and hope you find peace.

I’m so sorry I couldn’t be there to pet you one last time.

Im so sorry I didn’t say goodbye when I had the chance. I honestly thought I’d make it back on time...I honestly thought they’d wait.

Im so sorry I couldn’t give you a better life..I wanted vast open green fields for you, I wanted you to run as fast and as far as you can..all day, every day.

You must’ve been frightened, sitting in that cold metal table waiting for the vet to come in. I wish I could’ve been there to help you feel less scared. I know you were hurting beyond belief.

Im so sorry you got so sick and we couldn’t afford your treatments or medicines. The vet said you were too old to handle any medications as it is, I wish there would’ve been another way out for you..I wish we could’ve gotten the chance to at least treat you.

Im so sorry cooper, I love you with all my heart

Hi guys!!! Quick question regarding eye care. For as long as I can remember I've had blotchy, dark, uneven toned eyelids. I'm quite fair skinned so the patchy brown spots are significantly noticeable on my eyelids. Does anyone know what this might be/how to treat it?

AM:

     -splash of water
     -Cerave moisturizing lotion 
     -EltaMD sunscreen 

PM:

     -OCM with hemp oil
     -Cerave hydrating cleanser 
     -Cerave moisturizing lotion 

It's what I've done so far, I hope to include actives soon and I plan on changing up my moisturizer as it pills with the sunscreen, I found that taking off the days guck with hemp oil REALLY made a huge difference in my skin. Also sunscreen, sunscreen is important!!!

I think there is a night and day difference with your skin!! I notice you also don't cleanse in the morning, which has been good for me, as well. I have been wondering about the hemp seed oil. I started using grapeseed oil, which has helped a lot, but I have also seen a lot of good things about hemp from other acne sufferers. I assume this was the first oil you tried?

Yes it was!!! I did some extensive research on it on this sub and many individuals had success with clearing their acne with hemp oil, I figured I had nothing to lose.

The oil has been so soothing to my skin, it really cleans it without stripping it and I feel like my skin has definitely been more hydrated since.

I apply my suncscreen about 5-10 minutes after I apply moisturizer and it ALWAYS pills. It's so annoying. Am I doing something wrong?? Does anyone else have this issue?

Rn i just feel like everyone "puts up with me", but doesn't want to genuinely be around me. I've felt this way before and have ended up pushing people away.

I really love my friends dearly and would hate the thought of losing them..

Im just not in a good head space as of lately with all the shit that's happened and I really don't want to isolate myself and keep myself in a bubble of negative thoughts.

How do you cope with these feelings?

When I realized that the guy I'd been pining after for all of high school was treating me like a back up option. Like an ego stroke. Like the girl who would stick around when every other woman he pursued rejected him. He would give me just enough "love" every now and then to keep me hanging on, but he never really cared. And I honestly thought that, one sweet day, we could be in love.

For the longest time, he defined my beauty and self worth. He liked thick thighs, so my thick thighs were okay. He liked the booty, so my booty was okay. He liked black girls, so my black skin and features were okay. Except, without him, my self esteem was still shot.

Us going to different colleges finally let me see everything in a new light, and I just felt incredibly stupid. Years wasted crushing on a guy and letting him define my worth. Once I realized that our situationship wasn't what I thought it was, I had to find a new source of love and encouragement and respect. Which turned out to be myself.

All of that started a wave of positivity toward myself which I'd never been capable of before. I was telling myself that I'm smart, that I'm pretty, that I'm worthy of love, and so on and so forth.

The things that I once believed I could not be without him, I just inherently was. Crazy.

Same exact thing happened to me. It took a lot of heartache and pain to get to where I am today, I let him go completely and never looked back again.

I know it's dumb to ask this question as I should know by now but I'm trying to be more responsible with my money and save, I plan on moving out within 2 years. How does one build credit?

Get a credit card. Use it for all of your expenses on a monthly basis. Pay it in full each month. Rinse and repeat.

Can also ask to be added as an authorized user on your parents cards. This means you have the ability to swipe their cards BUT you don’t have to, you’ll still improve your credit as long as they make payment on time too.

Thank you so much

Step 1: Get a secured credit card. Capital One and Discover are good options for this, although not the only ones.

Step 2: Put a small recurring expense like Spotify or Netflix on the card.

Step 3: Set autopay to pay the statement balance in full every month.

Step 4: Put the card in a drawer.

For the majority of my community college days I was an excellent student, straight A's my first couple of semesters, deans list, and I studied like mad. I've been in school for nearly 2 1/2 years.

I have 3 science pre recs to complete before applying to nursing school and I'm so incredibly devastated that I failed chemistry this semester. I lacked the dedication to study and when I did it was very last minute, i don't know what's wrong with me..I'd sit in class and hold back tears hating every minute being there. I wanted every day to just be home sleeping.

This a major setback for me as I have to now repeat the same chemistry course this fall. I'm disappointed in myself and don't know how to snap back into place..

Any words of advice will help

Bruhhhhh I've been in school since 2010. I've failed a few classes, I've dropped classes, I've switched programs and all.

I failed nursing school 3 times and am now finally passing in my final semester of LPN.

Let me just say if you really want it like I do you can make it happen. The depression of failing sucks ass but you have to let it go. If you focus on failing you WILL fail.

Last semester the entire class failed the first test. Some students held onto that and I had to space myself away from them.

The mind is powerful and holding onto negativity will only return more negativity.

Focus on getting good grades the next time around and not on the past. You can't change it you can only improve it

Thank you so much, I have to keep reminding myself this is not a race but a journey and that this is what I love and what was meant for me so this journey is more than worth it. Thank you again and good luck with your journey!

Oh honey.....I have a degree from before nursing (Biology) and I nearly failed chemistry. I think my C was a pity C, as I did not deserve it one bit. I did fine in Biology and nursing courses thus showing that being bad in chemistry does not mean you will be bad at anything else. Chemistry is hard AF.

I don't know what I can say in terms of tips. I would encourage the chemistry class to be the only class that semester if you can. Get a tutor right at the beginning and meet with them every week. After each class re-write all of your notes neater. Do practice questions constantly.

The in-class anxiety is a barrier for sure. Try to hype yourself before class, do the superman/woman pose and treat yourself after class.

Such a sexist bullshit statement and this is why women have trust issues and think so many dudes are fuck bois. You guys create the cycle of bitter women because they're good enough to fuck, but to date? No way! So are you most likely to cheat then? You're clearly ok with having sex with loose women, but God forbid you date one.

see more

Exactly! I don't understand this train of thought. So he's telling me these so called loose women are only ok to fornicate with, but yet not good enough to date. How does the amount of sex a woman has correlate with her worth? It makes 0 sense.

As someone commented earlier, someone who has had many sex partners will likely cheat due to boredom of sex with one person.

Not sure how that correlates either. You could have 0 sexual experience and still be a cheating dirtbag in the end.

Hello! I was just wondering whether I'd need to get a separate moisturizer for the daytime. I currently use my cerave PM moisturizer during the day, filled by sunscreen. Does it make a difference whether it's daytime moisturizer vs nighttime moisturizer?

Any advice, any tips, anything would help. I'm really struggling as of now, wholeheartedly believing that I'm a complete failure for maintaining a low C in one of the hardest classes I've taken. I've fallen more and more behind each day and the rise of panic comes in waves..I can't bring myself to do my work and when I do I feel so incredibly flustered that I don't understand the material.

My last exam, I held back tears as I stared at an empty paper, I wanted time to fast forward so badly. I couldn't stand being in that room a second longer.

I feel like this every moment I'm in that class. There's 8 weeks left to the semester..I can't hold on.
