so i started dating a girl ive known really long (since we were like 4)
I realized i don't think i like her that way, but i still care about her enough where i don't want to fucking hurt her.
ive nvr been the one to end the relationship (beta-fag i know) idk how to do it
User avatar #126200 to #126166 - nospyonme (04/07/2014) [-]
Ballsackpickle, a wise man once told me that loving somebody is a choice. Every morning when you wake up, or every time you think about that person, you choose to find a new way to love them or a way to hate them.

You cant start the spark of love on your own, but you can either fan the flames and see it grow into a raging fire, you can ignore it and let it fizzle out, or you can ruthlessly crush it under foot.

It really sounds like you've ignored it, and since you let your feelings die, you need to break it off before you start to resent her.

What made you come to that realization?
#126173 to #126171 - ballsackpickle (04/07/2014) [-]
after being with her a couple weeks i just dont have those kinds of feelings for her.
i figured maybe i need to give it time, but if im not going to get those kinda feelings, id rather end it sooner rather than later
User avatar #126174 to #126173 - iridium (04/07/2014) [-]
Could it be your relationship is moving too slow? Have you not tried doing anything yet (like kissing, cuddling, etc.)?

But if you really don't feel it, I'd suggest breaking it up sooner, rather than later, for your sake and hers as well. You gave her the chance, but you just don't feel the emotions and you shouldn't be forced to feel them either, or feel like you have to out of obligation. Just make sure you deal with it tactfully, and although it might sound like "friendzoning", there really is nothing wrong with being friends with someone after a relationship. Who knows, you may come to realize you want her later, and if you don't burn that bridge you may get a chance again, though I highly doubt that will happen.

User avatar #126175 to #126174 - iridium (04/07/2014) [-]
As for how, there really isn't an easy way to do it. I can't tell you the specifics, but try to not make it sound like she did something wrong, just that you don't feel those feelings for her. It might still hurt, but it will hurt less if it's this early into a relationship than if it happens later when you've done more. Do avoid the "it's not you it's me" line though, it doesn't work.
#126177 to #126175 - ballsackpickle (04/07/2014) [-]
ive thought about the get her to break-up w/ me strategy, (does that work?)
User avatar #126178 to #126177 - iridium (04/07/2014) [-]
I'd recommend against it. I did that once, and the break up was worse than it needed to be. Chances are you'll just end up unnecessarily burning a bridge and you'll likely both feel worse afterwards than if you had just broken up regularly.

Soooo my uncle runs this modeling agency and yesterday i had the opportunity to go drive and pick a few of them up and escort them to a fitting then i took them to dinner, then after i had drinks with a few of them, well basically they have invited me to a fashion show this coming saturday and i kinda want to go because these girls are cool and we all might hang out afterwards, but the thing is i know 100% for a fact my ex will be there and i absolutely hate awkward situations, especially how things ended between us...... Do you guys think i should go? I am leaning towards yes.

Anyone knowledgeable about how Engineering works in college? It sounds retarded when I put it like that, I'll elaborate.

Okay, I'll try to explain myself well. So, I've pretty much decided to go to Purdue Uni. as it's a great midwestern engineering school. I would consider UMich too, but I got wait listed at UMich and I'm not 100% banking on getting in there (side note, do people usually get in if they're wait listed there or no? just generalizations).

My first question is what if I want to transfer schools while still in undergrad? If I want to change colleges because I change my mind about what field I want to go into to nuclear and since UMich's program is better, could I transfer there without too many worries (assuming I'm doing well in school). Or is this something you worry about in grad school?,

Also, can I go to Purdue and then, again assuming I get good grades/have a good record, go to grad school at GT or UMich?

I'm really insecure right now due to me being so undecided. There are so many fields in engineering that I'm interested in, and I don't like being restricted by going to a certain school that either doesn't have the field I'm interested in (I'm just using Nuclear since it's on my mind - it's not necessarily what I want to do) or it isn't up to par with another school's undergrad program. And this leads me to be confused about grad school since what if I major in Nuclear Eng. at Purdue which isn't on par with UMich. Can I still go to grad school there (assuming I have the criteria) despite going to Purdue?

I also posted this on Yahoo Answers, but aside from talking to my counselor I don't know where else to ask. I know it's comparing apple and oranges for the most part, but there is no doubt that if I wanted to do aero I should go to purdue but if I wanted to do nuclear I should go to umich, it's all just so confusing to me.

A few days ago I tried watching a file on mpc and I didn't receive any audio. I checked around the settings of mpc as best I could and couldn't find anything wrong, and I didn't mess around in the audio settings prior to this incident. I opened an older file that I knew had worked in the past and it no longer had any audio either. My computer's sound works fine on everything except media players. I got vlc hoping that a different media player would fix my problem but I have the same problem with vlc, no sound for any files. Does anyone know the casue of this and how to fix it? Thanks.

Unrelated to my previous one. How can I convince my sister to leave her cat here. We live outside the city and we've had her here since she was a kitten. Now my sister wants to move to a city to be closer to college but she doesn't want to leave her cat behind. The cat spends hours outside everyday hunting mice and soaking up the sun like a lazy cat but if my sister takes her I know she'll be inside for weeks since my sister will never have time to take her out or will be too lazy. I worry one day she'll escape and either won't come back or get run over.
#126155 to #126150 - senju (04/07/2014) [-]
I guess the only thing you can do (short of an elaborate catnapping plan) is attempt to make your sister see your side of the argument for it being best for the cat in question and also probably come up with a way that your sister can see the cat quite a bit still despite being in an inopportune location

I have a bit of pain on the left side of my chest when I lean on that side, inhale or exhale alot of air, such as when I laugh. It started around friday night out of the blue it was a regular day as always and it started hurting bad when I took a breath or bent over. I was a bit worried since I was working with fiber and got scared thinking that a piece slipped into my bloodstream. It's been 3 days since that and the majority of the pain has gone away but still hurts a tiny bit.
#126153 to #126149 - senju (04/07/2014) [-]
A possible cause for the issue could have been that the two walls of your lungs are touching one another probably due to an excess mucus build-up in your lungs - the fact that most of the pain has gone away could mean that your body's expelled most of the mucus.
Some people also recommended this site - www.failedsuccess.com/index.php?/weblog/comments/precordial_catch_syndrome_chest_pain/ But I'm not sure if it's the exact thing you're talking about.
User avatar #126154 to #126153 - mondominiman (04/07/2014) [-]
You're probably right. I was getting sick that day since I was in the cold the day before. I also had a lot of mucus coming out of my nose and I just kept sucking it back in.
User avatar #126152 to #126149 - iridium (04/07/2014) [-]
It should go away soon. Something probably is just sore.

So I found out about Comcast's (and many other ISPs') "Copyright Alert System" or whatever, and they give you six strikes of suspecting you are downloading copyright material.
I'm wondering things like :
-If anyone's service has actually been terminated like they threaten to do
-The best free VPN to use around this
-If I should use an alternate DNS
-If anyone would like to get them to stop caring so hard.

I've got food poisoning (I ate a slightly undercooked chicken) and I've got all the usual symptoms. Tylenol doesn't do jack shit for the headache, pepto bismol is barely helping and no matter how much water I drink I'm still thirsty. Anything I can do to at least bring down the fever?
User avatar #126133 to #126124 - daryldixon (04/07/2014) [-]
Killing yourself will rid all of the symptoms.
User avatar #126132 to #126124 - iridium (04/07/2014) [-]
Bringing down a fever is difficult. The towel on the head is a good idea.

If you're vomiting a lot, I recommend Gatorade G2 or vitamin water. adds a little bit of sweetness to wash out the bad taste, which water fails to do, and makes things come up easier.
#126128 to #126124 - senju (04/07/2014) [-]
Unfortunately for fevers the usual option is just to 'ride them out' but you can do certain things such as have a bath in cool water, get lots of rest, place a damp towel/sponge on your head and lower the amount of clothing you're wearing. Other than that there's not much else you can do, sorry.

So I've liked this girl for a long time (~5 years) finally told her a few weeks ago, after she got a boyfriend. I meant to tell her before, but life got in the way as it always does. She thinks of me as a brother but apparently liked me when we first met years ago in 5th grade. We may or may not be going to college together (probably not as she likes a different one more), and I feel like I missed my only shot with this girl who is literally perfect to me. She was the only girl I even considered going to prom with (didn't want to go before, definitely don't want to now).

What should I do? Go to prom with someone else? Don't go and just do something with my friends who graduated last year? Will provide any details necessary.

inb4: fuck her, it's only high school, just get over her, etc.

Throwing money at whores and strippers work. Not beautiful, respect deserving women. Don't say you were trying to help, because we both know that's an obvious lie, and that this is fairly obvious trolling. Furthermore, due to the fact the you only referred to your genitalia as 10^6 "um's" (not a unit of measurement btw) I'm just going to have to assume my statement about you penis was spot on. Once again, I will not be sucking your thimble of a dick.
User avatar #126352 to #126351 - teoberry (04/08/2014) [-]
To quote to great Juicy J, "bandz a make her dance". Throw $2000 and she'll be on your dick. And if you weren't in middle school, you'd know "um" would be how you type micrometers, with 10^6 micrometers being one meter. Such my one meter cock.
User avatar #126353 to #126352 - drunkensailor (04/08/2014) [-]
You're citing Juicy J for advice about women. Really? If you weren't a illiterate cunt as I previously stated you'd know "um" is not a unit of measure, but, rather "µm" is the abbreviation for a micrometer (APB/APC Physics, not offered to middle schoolers). Again, your argument is invalidated due to your own stupidity and laziness to use the symbol for mu instead of just a "u"

Also, you were just being retardedly redundant in saying you had a 1E6µm penis. Furthermore, a one meter penis? How insecure are you about your tiny dick?

I will give you 3 options and why.

1. Go stag - A lot of people go stag and you might find someone to dance with anyway.
2. Find someone else for the Prom - Maybe your standards are too high and you should lower your standards and find someone else, maybe even a friend if you don't want it to be serious.
3. Don't go to prom - If you are contemplating on not going and hanging out with your graduated friends that could be fun too.

Those are pretty much the only options you have. Pick the one you want and try it.
User avatar #126144 to #126134 - drunkensailor (04/07/2014) [-]
1. I'm sure lots of people do go stag but I'd rather not be one of them.
2. I'm not sure what you mean by hig standards but I don't think I have them? I didn't really want to go to prom to begin with, until I realized I wanted to go with her, and then that plane crashed and burned...
3. I think that's what I'm going to do.

Sorry if I seemed assholish for "rejecting" your first two options after you were kind enough to give them, just the kind of person to overthink and respond to everything I guess.

Obviously you're too much of an impatient dumbshit if you think that copypasting the same exact shit that you posted 2 hours ago (which is still on the same page no less) is going to get you responses you didn't see before, and isn't going to cause people to think you're a fuckoff who doesn't deserve help.
User avatar #126129 to #126127 - drunkensailor (04/07/2014) [-]
Obviously you should have actually given me advice the first time instead of just going on about how your prom sucked. I posted the same thing two hours later because two hours ago I received not much help and was hoping that this time around someone who could actually help me would be on. And only cynical cunts like you would think that someone doesn't deserve help when they ask for it (inb4 what if Hitler or the like asked for help).
User avatar #126131 to #126129 - iridium (04/07/2014) [-]
How stupid and impatient do you think people on this board are that they're just going to go "hey I'm only going to read the first 1/3 of this advice board." and think "Oh hey, this post on the first page is a couple hours old, better not say anything and ignore it." If you're going to treat us like 12 year old retards with the attention span of a squirrel, then why the fuck even ask for advice in the first place? You didn't even try asking Social either.

I gave you my advice. You don't have to fucking take it, you don't even have to like it. But asking again not even a day later, or even half a day (seriously, I've had phone calls longer than the amount of time that has passed) just makes you an impatient asshole.

You didn't even change a frickin thing from your previous post. You direct scrolled down, copypasted, and made the same post.

Can't say I know much from my own experience, but pretty much everything I've ever heard from my sexually active friends of both sexes say this. If you can't talk to her about it (if it's like a 1 night stand or you reaaally don't want to ask), the biggest key is her breathing and her reactions. You can usually tell when she's really enjoying it by how her body moves, her reactions and how she breathes.

Also the pussy isn't just "lick anywhere", if you go in licking like a dog you're not going to get results. You'll find what you're looking for based on her reaction. Usually the clitoris is what you want to stimulate through oral/fingering, though that's not the only thing you should go for in all cases.

Naturally, you're probably not going to be an outright God of it right away either, so some, ahem, practice will probably be the best way to develop technique, though that's kind of obvious.

Every girl is different. Talk to your partner.

I'm aware that the question I'm going to ask isn't doesn't pertain to the intended kind of advice on this board, but I'm not simply going to comment it on a random post. So the Top Funny bar that is normally on the left side (it also has all of the image boards on it) just disappeared. If it was supposed to, well fine, but otherwise, I can't find a setting to turn it back on.

Your mouse should change from a normal pointer to an "expand" pointer (it looks like 2 arrows going in different directions) when you highlight over the area you need to click.

I don't have any interest in men or women. Sexually. Is there something wrong with me? When I think about sex it almost repulses me.

Nothing wrong with it. It's fairly atypical, but society has a lot of stupid standards about this shit, so don't worry about it much. It's nobody's place but your own to determine what you want.

So I've liked this girl for a long time (~5 years) finally told her a few weeks ago, after she got a boyfriend. I meant to tell her before, but life got in the way as it always does. She thinks of me as a brother but apparently liked me when we first met years ago in 5th grade. We may or may not be going to college together (probably not as she likes a different one more), and I feel like I missed my only shot with this girl who is literally perfect to me. She was the only girl I even considered going to prom with (didn't want to go before, definitely don't want to now).

What should I do? Go to prom with someone else? Don't go and just do something with my friends who graduated last year? Will provide any details necessary.

inb4: fuck her, it's only high school, just get over her, etc.

Don't go to prom. It's a waste of money seriously, between the rental tuxedo and the ticket to get in, it cost like 170$ for nothing but sugar, shit music, sugar, a dance floor filled with people who think dryhump-dancing (aka grinding) is dancing, lots of sugar, scumbags, the constant fear of dirtying your tuxedo, and did I mention excessive amounts of sugar?

You waited too long, but hey, you can always pick her up on the rebound if her current relationship doesn't work out just don't view it that way and certainly don't be unwilling to go with other options. , so don't worry too much about that.

I wouldn't advise going to prom with someone you don't really know or like much either.
User avatar #126104 to #126103 - drunkensailor (04/06/2014) [-]
even as "just friends" and what's with you and sugar?
User avatar #126105 to #126104 - iridium (04/06/2014) [-]
My prom had almost nothing but fucking sugar to eat. Chocolate fondue fountains, fuckloads of cake, more punch than you will probably ever drink in your life, candy at the tables...
User avatar #126106 to #126105 - drunkensailor (04/06/2014) [-]
alright, but back to my problem...
User avatar #126108 to #126106 - iridium (04/06/2014) [-]
It's not the only problem, as I pointed out. Like I said, I wouldn't go to prom unless you had a date you were interested in. And even then there are far more romantic and fun things you could get for that much money.

If you do decide you really need to go, just have as much fun with it as you can. I literally went with very few inhibitions, just asking everyone who looked single if they wanted to dance (and I got 2 chicks to dance with me, so none of my issues are about being bitter either) even though literally the only time I ever learned how to dance was when my sister taught me with a broom. During the faster songs, even if nearly all of them were shit, I just went up and danced like a white guy gotta do something to burn off all the calories...and for some reason I actually got a couple of complements for some reason along with my good friend.

I went stag with a good friend of mine because I had the mindset of "I won't get the opportunity to do this again." I came out thinking, "if I had to force myself to have fun with this, it really wasn't worth the money." A friend of mine went skiing that weekend. I envied him, actually having something outright fun to do.

Go with someone else if you have someone in mind. Even if it is just a friend.
Honestly, when a girl tells you she thinks of you as a brother there is no escaping that label they aren't going to ever sleep with their brother. I've broken out of the friend zone before but neither I nor any of my comrades have ever overcome the 'brother' label.

Honestly hanging out with your friend who already graduated would probably be cheeper and more fun. Plus you won't see her there with someone else if you aren't there.
User avatar #126102 to #126099 - drunkensailor (04/06/2014) [-]
I mean I had "back up" plans last year if I couldn't find anyone to go with. And this year when I realized I wanted to go with her and not really anyone else. But I'm still clinging to the idea that she and her bf will break up eventually and I'll be there for her. Probably because that what happened at the end of February (separate story).

I have a question I am too embarassed to ask anyone else about .See I used to have a fairly normal sex and relationship life until I became 18 .
What happened when I became 18 ?
See I was and still am in a political organization and I used to talk with a lot of people and argue in practical matters and in events like general strikes free schooling and stuff not /b/crap internet discussion and at sometime point in my life I figured out that people will try to convince in what they want not with actual arguments but with other means .
So I started my search to figure out how I was to make my self more hardly exploitable and I stumbled upon a book that described everything from how a manager a salesman a politician or anyone could exploit you how to effectively make someone do what you want basically making the chances that he does what you want more and I studied the book .
Of course if you reverse those actions then you can easily exploit the others .
I have only tried those techniques in 8 different ocasions not in serious things or actions and it worked absolutely perfect .
So after I learned to use those stuff my life became hell
Why?
Because people approached me in order to make friends but when I used one of those movements or methods even if they came to me naturally I felt like I was taking advantage of them .
And that thing happened also with 2 different girls non friendly
and now there is a 3rd one which I really like both her body and character and she likes me back but each time I feel like I am taking advantage of her .

So that is my problem I think I take advantage of people each time this happens now I am close to 20 so there has not been much time past but still I don't feel very good about it .
So what do I do to ge rid of that ?

Would that book happen to be 'Influence - The psychology of persuasion'? If not, I'd like the title. Every source I've read on it has been good at urging you not to use it for reasons of bullshit, and only ever in case of helping someone for selfless reasons, or plaster it full of warning signs. lesswrong.com/lw/2v2/the_dark_arts_preamble/

Ask her fully for consent, or continuously make sure that she's enjoying everything as well. Make her take as many first steps as possible, and every time you notice yourself using anything that is making use of a Dark Arts principle, stop. Just stop whatever you were doing, and rethink and reconsider and take a new approach.
Depending on who she is, you might want to just be straight up honest with her, and drop a 'i want to make sure i'm not taking advantage of you'. Of course, a properly done Dark Arts act wouldn't leave the victim knowing of it, but it'd plant that little "hmm" which would increase her chances of noticing if she's doing something she doesnt really want to.

really good article by the way .
User avatar #126184 to #126167 - aytoktonik (04/07/2014) [-]
I don't remeber the title but it was not a serious in depth look but somethign like a big You need to login to view this link did not give a serious analysis it just said how they do it and the history behind it for example a lot of the movements were based on intimidation and some were based on animalistic insticts I do not think I will try to follow your 3rd advice but the other two were pretty useful I guess , so I am going to try it out .
Also one theoretical question I am not being a sexist or something but deep in the end aren't relationships between man and woman based mostly on the animalistic behavior of the man being stronger than the woman > Excuse me the only psychological knowledge I have is some Freud and 6 months of psychology in school ,also I have to use my english for a while so I can not fully explain what I mean

You need to be yourself and not hold up any barriers between yourself and her, however if she is just someone you have a mild crush on and wish to just simply hump and dump, don't even bother. I think you need to find who you are and stop with the front of taking advantage of others before they take advantage of you.

Anyone have any good sources that can help me brush up on geography/cartography/anything that can help me recognize countries?
User avatar #126084 to #126078 - iridium (04/06/2014) [-]
An atlas would probably work.

www.sporcle.com/games/g/world - this helped me a lot as well for review. There's a few others on this site if you're looking for other little things you can do, such as continent specific quizzes, flag quizzes, and things like that. From constant playing I was able to get from ~140 to my high of ~180 suffice to say I've spent a little too much time in an Atlas.

An important thing to do for memory for me is to attach some sort of connection to it, like knowing something about the country. For instance, "Ethiopia, hey that's where Coffee originated."
