  1. I'm not sure if it's fully possible for men to truly and fully understand what it's like for women to be pretty consistently valued mainly for our ability to provide sex. But we are, pretty much from the moment our boobs begin to develop (if not birth). It affects literally every aspect of our lives. The world, and most of the people in it, regard women as little more than sexual objects. The amount of trust and bravery required to give physical intimacy (not sexual intimacy) to a man is enormous. Being able to trust that the man you're touching isn't going to "make a move" is so relievi

  2. I either think I’m awesome or hate myself. Seems pretty consistent with what other people have said. I find that I am at my best when I’m doing the most self care, which for me means spending time alone doing things I enjoy, or having good interactions with a very limited number of people. I just did a weekend retreat by myself in a tiny cabin in the woods. No one to judge, no one to require my time or attention, no opportunities to fail. It was great for me. Work is hit and miss. I both feel like an imposter and like I’m way over qualified for what I’m doing. And both are probably t

  5. To the surprise of no one, I'm pretty boring. I dated a lot as a teenager, but since I met my husband at 19, I don't have a lot of adult dating experience. If anything happens to him, I'm not sure I would enter the dating pool until my kids are significantly older or out of the house. I have a hard time trusting people with my kids. If something happened to me, he would be remarried in a year. Not that he doesn't love me, but he needs a wife. And he would want help with the kids. But for the record, I've had dinner with Fozzie, and I did not go home with him.

  7. Yep...it has been a crazy week. I got notified, via email two days before my move (Wednesday afternoon), that our move on Friday was bumped to the next week by the moving company. I called around and only found a company that could get us in but it would have to be the next day (Thursday at 7am). We pack all night--and by pack I mean throw shit in boxes. We are in such a hurry I forgot to pack a bag with a few days changes of clothes. I wore the same shorts Wednesday-Sunday. Today was my first day at the new job and I was late because I couldn't find any pants. I guess the prin

  8. Okay! Progress is made! I have a double laminectomy on the calendar for June 18. Turns out that *cough* age related degeneration was actually another severely herniated disc, so both thoracic and lumbar will be operated on at the same time. As for the cyst, I have a referral in to a cranial sacral specialist that I’ll be scheduling in the next few days. So my back should be healed up and I’ll be enjoying summer by late July, if my doctor is correct.

  9. I know I'm reasonably smart and can do a handful of things. I think I'm better looking/stronger/more capable/more creative than I realize. I'm definitely more confident and have more self esteem in my late 30s than I have at any other period in my life--good lord I'm embarrassed of my teens/20s self, and definitely owe a lot of people a lot of apologies for the stupid shit I did as a result of low self esteem. That being said, at the same time, I don't think I'm particularly smart or good at anything. Maybe yelling. I'm a lot louder than I realize I am.

  10. He was probably drinking a beer during this interview. Today I called out the school psychologist because she wants to wait an entire year for an IEP re-evaluation knowing that my son is going to fail his IEP goals for the second year in a row and waiting to add a therapy that it is very apparent he needs (I had no idea that writing was a separate category from fine motor skills and if I had known that 2 years ago I would have fought for it because it was very apparent he couldn't write during his initial evaluation). But it prompted me to finally sign him up for a full neuropsych assessm

  11. I have stupidly high (and, frankly, likely unwarranted) self-esteem but, ironically, crazy-low self-confidence. I, honestly, don't even know how that works. Actually, a lot of it is imposter syndrome and a crippling fear of failure. And actually maybe more arrogance than self-esteem. So like, I don't have the self-confidence to actually put myself out there for ANYTHING even if I logically know I could do it. AND if something forces me to acknowledge my shortcomings, I get really angry and upset because it goes against everything I feel about myself. If that makes any sense? As long

  12. My self esteem goes up and down like one of them roller coaster rides. Some days I feel invincible and other days I feel worthless. Even people with high self esteem have moments, many of them, in which they question their worth or value. I can't pretend to have a good answer or know what works, and it's probably different approaches for different types of people. Maybe your brain is wired that way or there are past experiences that lead to the low self esteem. Or both. I try to use my low self esteem to my advantage. I see a cute girl and think hey this girl won't be in

  15. Good god I'm glad I don't have to date anymore. This all sounds terrible. I'm really happy I got to have a slutty period. It was fun to be free and loose with little if any expectations, but it was very unfulfilling overall. Sure I'll probably never get a blowjob from a woman who may or may not have been trans in a bar bathroom again, or get to bang someone ten years younger AND twenty years older in the same week, but the comfort and familiarity of being with one person who knows what I like (and vice versa) and none of the awkwardness of figuring shit out with our big dumb gross naked b

  16. I WAS going to post my monthly "this place sucks lately" bullshit but damn, we gettin' real. My local paper is running weekly dating columns lately, asking residents their experiences in specific areas-worst first dates, worst restaurant dates, oddest break ups, and while they've been awesome to read each Sunday, they pale in comparison to the Dating Life of Tank. I imagine the 100% versions of these to be incredible. I like the LA James Bond vibe. I was Tank-active in my 20s (NO regrets) and had some hookups during the ends of both my marriages but have been celibate now for longer

  19. I’ve only had one potential employer do as deep a dive as they claimed, it was for a job with the Columbus Police Department (not as a cop) and it did get sunk by a vindictive former boss who lied and said I was fired. But, that’s out of every job I’ve had, and I’ve had a lot. Most former employers don’t care to give much information. They just don’t care about people who left a long time ago. Even the crazy ones. I got the promotion. The raise wasn’t what I was hoping for, but it’s still a solid raise after just 2 months with the company, and if I do as well in my next role, I could be m

  21. Thanks for sharing. Honestly, there’s a flip side to it as well: men are pretty consistently told that the only type of physical affection that’s manly is sex, but a lot of guys I have physical touch as their primary love language. And it isn’t about sex at all, sometimes I just really need a hug, or to sit and watch TV snuggled up with someone (at this point either my wife or one of my children). It can be really hard for women to understand that men might just want that too. As a single guy, I also knew the women who I could do that with safely and who would develop emotio

  25. I go back and forth daily. Literally. I am not a fan of what is in the mirror. I have been fighting it for as long as I can remember. It started with hating the fact my hair was wavy. As I got older and hit puberty I was desperate to be cool, but all the cool Kids were skinny and had cool hair. I am genetically predisposed to be doughy and have a Jew fro. I’m STILL fighting it. I know I’m super smart, I know I’m talented and creative, I managed to land my dream career in an insanely competitive field, I’m a good parent, and as I have noted in the relationship thread, I don’t super st

  34. I do! It's just funny - this position was one of the first I sent in a resume for, and I did so just because I knew that I'm qualified and it would work out ok. I don't think I even included a cover letter tbh. Overall, I've been very lukewarm about this one. The one (and only really) downside here is that any and all growth is going to depend 100% on this agent, Ashley. I was in this same position 7 years ago with a different agent, Sandra (the crazy one that fired me one morning by just saying "I just can't do this anymore"), and it turned out that she just didn't have it in her to run

  36. I was in the running to write Ghost Dimension. i was the director's first pic, but the studio wanted the guys who ended up doing it. It was a nightmare production so I lucked out. The director of PA4 directed my movie Hell Fest. And the director of Happy Death Day is a friend. I liked both these movies, and I'm just here to be a Hollywood douche.

The rules that our council has instituted and took MONTHS to come up with, which wasted a lot of precious time when rates were actually low, are stupid and painfully out of date. Its clear that these are actually early pandemic rules, and that they expect me to wear no less than a hazmat suit and for me to purchase bubbles for each girl. Whomever came with with these rules has obviously never seen a child, let alone interacted with one. I had to actually touch a kid to get out a splinter. No one caught COVID. Its a miracle. I am n

  45. That's awesome! Last night I applied for a job in Austin. We've decided that I should start job hunting now, and when I get one, I can temporarily stay with my mom or sister during the week while I work and the boys can all stay in Houston. Trevor has been working less and less while taking his classes, so he's going to take over homeschooling the boys. So wish me luck. I'll be sending out resumes quite a bit in the immediate future.

  47. ^That's why I didn't like Secret Invasion as a comic and why I'm not excited for the show. Granted everything else MCU that I've been wary of turned out great, but I really don't like the idea of someone not being who we thought they were, and then trying to backtrack and figure out when and how and why and ugh. I dunno. That's just not the kind of storytelling I like.
