I just realized and its freaking me out I'm not at an age where imaginary friends are normal I'm of age and this is making me feel weird thinking about it. please help i dont know if this is normal or whatever this is
I was talking to some American friends about movies and I mentioned a movie they never heard of but was super popular in Europe, that movie is about a cowboy and native American being friends and most Americans in that group immediately called it bad because cultural appropriation ....
Ok so far so good, you can't make movies with tradtional clothing's or better stereotypical clothing
But somehow movies about Romans/Greek/Vikings where all okey
Is that because it was 2000years vs just 200 years ago or what?
Religion Religious couples, what would you do if your spouse came to you questioning their faith/became atheist?
I’m (24f) not religious in any way, however I watch a lot of christian youtubers. For those who are religious, what would happen in your relationship or marriage if your spouse became atheist or questioned your beliefs suddenly? I’m genuinely interested.
In no way is there any judgment I am just wondering what that has been like for those who have experienced this
Edit: I guess my question is more to those who are totally devoted to their religion more so than those who have beliefs that aren’t as strong as some
(What got me thinking about this was watching people like jess conte, milena ciciotti etc who are so devoted to their religion, their relationships are centred around it. Im curious as to whether people with such strong faith ever question it)
Last year I got a headache that wouldn't go away no matter how many pills I've taken so I've gotten MRI's done and nothing bad came from that and now a few months later my neurologist wants to know if it's something in my eye (I've noticed I've had a little bit of pain there for a while but didn't bring it up) but I'm really nervous about it and want to know if anyone knows anything that could help me at all
Love & Dating Why is it people think any age gap in a relationship has to be used in a weird way? Can two people with different ages just get along and not be toxic?
Edit: sorry, wanted to make it clear I definitely mean over the legal age and honestly where both parties are over 20+
Culture & Society Why are social workers allowed to separate siblings especially if they don't want to be separated?
So I have come across several situations where a friend comes to me and tells me they are being mistreated by their partner. Sometimes they break up or something bad happens and my friend is a total wreck. I open up my home and I go out of my way to support them and be the shoulder to cry on and I don’t expect anything in return. All for them to go back to the partner who mistreated them (usually it was pretty bad mistreatment and one of the partners got arrested for it and she had the charges droppeda and went back to him despite all the evidence against him and him being a dangerous person). Sometimes I support them multiple times because I get that people who are abused don’t have a lot of options (like they can’t afford to not live in the same home or are married with kids) but some of my friends didn’t even live in the same home let alone same city, and they still didn’t end things, and still got mistreated. And then when I decide not to support them and help them get out of a situation because I know they’ll go right back to him I get called the bad person for “putting them in a bad place”. I have known 7 people who have done this and I’ve helped them, which doesn’t seem like a lot of people but it’s emotionally exhausting and some of these people aren’t even my friends anymore because they only talk to me when they need something (like a place to stay, money, person to watch their kids, etc). Some of this has made me start questioning if some of them are actually telling me the truth or lying about what’s happening to them so that I give them things. I feel terrible for thinking this and I feel like I can’t stand up for myself. Am I wrong for this?
Law & Government If I lie and sell something else that’s not weed but sell it to someone saying that it’s weed, is it still illegal ?
So I’m kind of high rn so idk if I’m explaining good enough but basically would I still go to jail if I sell an undercover cop “weed” if it’s not actually weed would I still go to jail for selling weed ???
I'm struggling financially at the moment. I know when my bills are due, I know when I'm late. It's something that I constantly worry about.
Why are credit card companies allowed to call me like a loan shark that is about to break my knee caps? I know I'm late and their constant calling is nothing but a drain on me. You want more money that I don't have? I'll add you to the list. Maybe at some point I can stop constantly stressing about losing the housing for my two kids. I'd be fine losing my housing if it was just me, I would actually prefer it. I've done it before and as soon as they move out I will do again, I hate renting.
I can't do it. I already struggling with life and then this. I'm not doing it by choice, jesus.
Do they think that (unnecessary)constant reminders are going to make me pay something I can't? I don't know, I just can't... Life sucks.
Edit: I've tried blocking them, but they keep coming. They have an endless list of numbers to ghost?
I don’t know if this comes across as mean but i sincerely don’t know because of the sudden movements when have a tick.
I had to break up with my girlfriend a couple of days ago cause we had many problems and she abused myself emotional very hard. It's kind of a relief that I finally broke up but the problem is I'm very afraid of being alone I really need them goddamn hugs and cuddles but I'm kinda afraid that I could mess up the next relationship because I didn't got enough time to recover or something like that but when is even the right time?
Edit: I wanted to thank you all for your very awesome answers, now I have a realistic plan on how to deal with all this lots of love to you
I've always struggled with starting and holding a conversation with new people. I want to get back into the dating game after being out for a few years due to mental health. I'm just very anxious, because I have had a hard time holding a conversation & opening up for years.
If I can get a conversation started, it usually only lasts a few minutes before I run out of things to say. Then I either can't think of anything to say, or awkwardly bring up the first thing that comes to mind. It's weird, because when I'm with friends and family I never have this issue
Has anyone else dealt with this & found a way to get better at it? Any advice is appreciated. I just want to feel comfortable talking to people I don't know well, so it helps me get back Into the dating scene
Why do I sweat blood when I talk to the opposite sex. I'm just a lousy janitor. I work in a building full of lawyers. I needed help about something so I was recommended a lady lawyer. I went to her office and I choked like Eminem. My temperature went up so did my heart beat. She was very attractive. Which made things worst. Do you think this is one of the side effects of porn? Being afraid of them? I watch A LOT OF PORN for years now. If it's not porn what could it be?
If people really have to try and avoid saying Latina/Latino… why can’t they just say Latin?
Culture & Society How do I say this in Italian? Looking for someone that speaks fluent Italian and English Google translate will not give me a straight answer.
I need to know how to say the phrase:
“You’ve shitted my dick you junky son of a bitch”
