I'm conflicted at the moment. There's this girl I really like, a childhood friend of mine.
I feel like I really want to tell her how I feel (seeing as I have had a crush on her for years). Problem is, I'm really scared that I will make things awkward between me and her. also,she lives kinda far away so I'll have to find a way to bring it up either when I'm there or i talk to her over text messages
please help, I don't have a clue on how to handle this.

There is a dude who basically asked the sam question here. I will just repeat what I have said there but you might wanna scroll down till you see mrvalane.

I was in love with a friend for a pretty long time, I never told her. And it was probably the worst decision I ever made. I cannot help to ask myself "what could have been?" and it's making me furious. I will never know, there is absolutely no way to know what would have happened. I have been rejected quite a few times afterwards and yes, that hurts too but not nearly as much as not knowing what could have been. In 20 years, you won't look back and say "damn this girl rejected me and it still hurts" but in 20 years when I look back, I will still wonder if I had a chance or not.

In the end we rather regret the things we didn't do, not the mistakes we made. I really can't tell you what to do, it's absolutely your decision, but if I had the chance to change mine, i would do it instantly, even though I don't love her anymore.

how do you talk to a depressed girl, i cant go to my usual jokes because apparently its too risky to try
User avatar #145622 to #145614 - nigalthornberry (07/19/2014) [-]

Talk about shit that you guys enjoy doing like reading or some shit. If she's one of those chicks who answers everything with 'iunno... stuff' then don't talk at all and just listen when she has problems.

Though if she's going all vague on you I doubt she wants to talk to you. Never know though.

im going to need some relationship advice.
so i like this girl, i met her through a sports thing, and only ever see her through that sports thing still. I really want to ask her out but i really cant see a good way to do it, were never really alone and after were both sort of sweaty and it just doesn't seem like a good time to ask a girl out. how am i supposed to do this. please help.
#145596 to #145582 - minutes ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
So i heard you're having confidence problems? Let me tell you of a trick I know.

It's from a TV-show Lost to be exact It will probably sound stupid to you but it works.

Whenever you want to do something but are afraid of it, close your eyes and count to 5. While you do that, think of everything that could possibly go wrong. Think of every negative outcome, let all the fear run through you. And then when you reached the 5, you open your eyes and you just do it, no matter what you just do it. No pussying out then, you do it.
It worked for me in the past and while it sounds illogical it actually makes things easier.

Honestly, if you're both sweaty and stuff, its fine. Just pull her to the side and talk to her, ask her to meet somewhere. Sure you'll be sweaty but as long as its both of you, should be alright.
User avatar #145587 to #145582 - fistfireace (07/19/2014) [-]
Just ask her to hang out, like going for a coffee for example. If she accepts, slowly progress from there. And, hey, I'm sure if you asked her out with people that'll show her that you have confidence, which helps a lot.
#145591 to #145587 - mr skeltal (07/19/2014) [-]
well that would be great if i had much confidence.
User avatar #145585 to #145582 - iridium (07/19/2014) [-]
Just ask for something simple, man. Don't treat it like you're asking her to marry her or something crazy like that, just ask her some time if she wants to do something after the sports thing or something.
#145592 to #145585 - mr skeltal (07/19/2014) [-]
thats a pretty good idea, ill just need to find the confidence to do that then i will be fine.
User avatar #145594 to #145592 - iridium (07/19/2014) [-]
That's really 95% of what asking someone out is, making the effort.

I've been thinking a lot about getting a tattoo lately so I've been looking through pages of tattoos and pictures of stuff I think is cool

I'm 19 (m) this would be my first tattoo

I found this owl on google images and I think he'd make a sweet forearm tattoo (without the heart/writing- i'm unsure about the shadow as well) but I'd really appreciate any advice

do you think it looks too feminine?
User avatar #145628 to #145580 - lmaopwnt ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
Heard a tip on tattoos a while ago. Get a framed picture of the tattoo you want and hang it up on your wall where you'll always see it. If your not tired of it after 2-3 months, then it'd be a good tattoo to get.

Tattoos are with you for life.
I mean, it's possible to get them removed or covered up, but that route is far more expensive than the actual cost of the tattoo.

You should know for sure what you want on yourself.
There should be no doubts when it comes to your tattoo.
And honestly it seems like you're doubting that possible tattoo idea.

The owl does and doesn't seem feminine. It slightly does because of the heart.
Although, I personally would not get a cartoon drawing for a tattoo.
Pic related, it's something I would do, if I were to get a tattoo.

But again, it's practically a life-long commitment. Be sure that whatever you are getting, you are fine with having for the rest of your life.

What should i do about being in love with my best friend?
I dont want to ruin our friendship by telling her this as i dont know how she feels.
She is also away for 10 days which has depressed me some what.
User avatar #145839 to #145579 - drakenumen (07/20/2014) [-]
This is a kind of out of the box answer(and a late one), but here it goes. So she's your best friend? That's great, you guys hang out a lot probably, talk a lot, and in turn share a lot. I would assume you know a lot about your best friend. That makes you close to each other, closer than your average people. So don't just go off and ask her "Hello ____ would you like to go out with me question mark." Ask her how SHE would feel about it. You are best friends. Share your feelings, don't just admit them. Talk to her about the fact that you would like to be more than friends. Have a mutual conversation about your feelings, if it's a yes? There you go, congratulations. If it's a no, if anything you'll know why not, and you'll have it off your chest. Don't be afraid that admitting you like someone more than a friend is just going to end your friendship right then and there, especially if you're best friends. I doubt she want's to be any less of your friend than you do her, regardless of what you ask her.
User avatar #145634 to #145579 - dingdongsingsong (07/19/2014) [-]
You'd have to change the way you talk to her, like when she comes back from wherever shes gone, it would be the best time to change how you are with her, be her best friend and all but like you have to start flirting with her a little , tell her she looks pretty being nice to her as if you just became friends.
this is so she gets an idea of where you're heading, its plain dumb to just ask a girl out without hinting it to her.

Listen to that guy below me, it's true. But to make your decision easier I will throw in some personal experience for you.

I was in love with a friend for a pretty long time, I never told her. And it was probably the worst decision I ever made. I cannot help to ask myself "what could have been?" and it's making me furious. I will never know, there is absolutely no way to know what would have happened. I have been rejected quite a few times afterwards and yes, that hurts too but not nearly as much as not knowing what could have been. In 20 years, you won't look back and say "damn this girl rejected me and it still hurts" but in 20 years when I look back, I will still wonder if I had a chance or not.

User avatar #145625 to #145595 - mrvalane (07/19/2014) [-]
Im not so afraid of rejection more of how the situation of our friendship will change if she doesnt express the same feelings. She may stop talking to me and that would just drive me crazy
#145626 to #145625 - minutes ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
As said, being rejected isn't the worst thing here. It sounds hard but sometimes you need to risk something in your life. Not to sound cliche but, no risk no fun. If you're not playing the game, you can't win.
Do what you think is best, afterall it's your life.
User avatar #145581 to #145579 - fistfireace (07/19/2014) [-]
You can do two things.

One: tell her how you feel - if you do tell her how you feel, it can either end up perfectly, awkwardly, or awful. It's a gamble, but it can be worth it in the end. Also, if you do this, and fail, remember this:

"I've been thinking a lot lately about taking chances, and how it’s really just about overcoming your fears. Because the truth is, everytime you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you’re always glad you took it. " It's from a TV show (Scrubs) but the show provides actual life lessons which aren't bad.

If you do this, tell her after she comes back.

Two: don't tell her - choosing this decision won't ruin anything, but it will make you feel bad because you're not with the girl that you love. It also comes with a repercussion: if she feels the same way as you do, and she doesn't tell you either, you would have missed a big opportunity and that will suck miserably.

Even if you take that chance, and it fails, you still can be friends. Yeah, it'd be awkward for awhile, but, eventually, everything will go back to normal. Basically...

"I guess in the end, things seldom work out the way you expect. sometimes, fate is on your side. Other times, well, you've kind of sealed your own fate. Either way you have to trust that whatever’s supposed to happen, will happen. " Another Scrubs quote.

Personally, I'd attempt to take the chance (not saying you have to) because I rather find out the answer then keep waiting until I run out of chances to express my feelings. Not going to lie, but it will hurt. A lot (if it fails). But the wonderful thing about being human is that no matter how painful something like that can be, eventually you'll move on. Just like that. It will take time, but it's something that can get better.

Good luck to whatever you choose.

Alright I need some help. I have to photos I want to put side by side. Kinda how people upload fact comps n shit. How would I do that. I have Photoshop. Also yes I am a missinformed bitch.
#145586 to #145551 - iridium (07/19/2014) [-]
Photoshop: When you make a new image, create it at a good width/height depending on how you want to angle it. Paste the images. Ctrl-T is your best friend, it's the transform option which lets you easily move and resize images. There's also two options in the Image tab - edit image and edit canvas. Edit canvas will allow you to increase or decrease the height of the image canvas itself without making the content of the image bigger or smaller. Usually I use this if I want more space to put stuff, which works good for compilation images. Any time you need more height for the image, just hit edit canvas and add a bit more. Crop tool (the icon is the same as the image) is also your friend.

I just got an e-mail from my college telling me that I'm not able to recieve financial aid because I did bad in grades. They gave me a warning e-mail back in May and now sent me this new one saying that I've failed to reach requirements.

First semester:
B
D
C
B

Second semester:
C
F
C

Third semester:
A
*Not concluded/ class still going*

That was my grade. I turned it around, and they still said no. I can't continue college on my own. The whole reason I could afford it was my financial aid, and they are denying me it. What do I do? I can't get a job because the retarded "You need experience.", but I fucking need a job to get experience. Now I can't go to college to help me find a job. My parents are foreign so they can't help much either. Don't even think about friends that could help, I don't have any real world friends. What do I do? Just live the rest of my life leeching off my family? That's pathetic, I'm 19 and already I'm fucked. I don't know what to fucking do.

Seriously though, you clearly were not trying in this school. After the first Semester, if my parents found out I had a D, they would have told me to stop going to college. The second semester, absolutely horrible. You didn't learn from the first semester, and now you will suffer the consequences. It's really hard to fail in college considering how easy it is.
#145556 to #145541 - confusedasian (07/19/2014) [-]
All you see are my grades and you judge me because of that you don't know how hard it is for me to focus you don't know how hard I have to study. My parents know I normally get bs and cs. If you're just going to gloat how smart you are just leave me alone. You're not doing anything other boosting your own ego and calling me shit. It's the same shit for 13 years of schooling. You people are so high up your fucking castles always looking down on me. You think you're so much better you don't help anyone like me you just go prancing around spitting on us

You got an F in your second semester and you only took 3 classes. It's hard to believe that you weren't out partying instead of putting enough effort into the class, because I guarantee you a professor wouldn't fail a student who tried really hard.
#145616 to #145604 - confusedasian (07/19/2014) [-]
The f was an online class with no professor telling me what or how to do anything and I don't have friends I live with my parents I go to school and then go home my stepdad and mom both know that I'm always in my room I don't go partying and i already said if you're just here to shit talk me without knowing anything about my life than leave me alone.
User avatar #145588 to #145556 - iridium (07/19/2014) [-]
Well, let me ask you something, as a legitimate question and not trying to sound egotistical at all: did you in fact do everything you could in your power to pass those courses? Not just studying the textbooks and paying attention to/coming to every single class as best as you can, I'm talking asking the teacher for help, going to their office hours if they have them, doing every homework assignment given, attempting to organize study groups/sessions with other students in those classes, tutoring sessions (many campuses offer free tutoring sessions for students, at least with more general subjects), and asking others for help on anything else you didn't understand?

If you truly did all that, then I have my honest doubts that you would have failed to pass your classes. My guesses are A: You had some serious medical complication preventing you from success, B: Had absolutely abysmal professors who set their students up for failure (there are a few out there, that's why every student should know about RateMyProfessors.com), C: Some actual, serious real life stuff which just got in the way, or D: You didn't do all that.

And for the record unless you live in an environment where the job market is impossible (Which since seeing how that isn't your excuse, I have my doubts) to get into, you can get a job, so don't give the experience excuse. It might not be able to put you through school as much as you want it to, but you can at least have work if you're willing to put time and energy into getting that work. Are you writing and giving resumes, checking classifieds, attending job fairs, asking for and submitting applications to anywhere possible, calling back places you apply to, etc. and doing this on a consistent basis as much as you can?

Cont.

I'll say this: you're not fucked, bro. You're in a difficult situation and it's frustrating you. But you need to put the work forth to get yourself there and not make excuses. And I'm not saying this to belittle you in any way. And you really don't need to be out of the house yet. As long as you're working towards self-sustained independence and you have the option of staying at home to get there, you should take it. Just act more and more like a roommate and less and less like a kid to your parents. Offer to help around the house more if you can, don't ask for money every five seconds, only for the things you really need.

No my mom. When growing up my mom knew I wasn't straight a type. I was always having difficulty on class because people around me always did good and put me down because I was Asian. They think it's funny how better they are and always made me hate them. The f was from online class. The lady professor just gave me things to do without much help. Her office was in another county. County not country. I can not drive their because my family have only one car that bothy parents use to get to places.

If not experience it's my referrals for job.from one of my application it asked me to list referral so they can do background check. It was retail store and I don't know why they asked that, but I can not give them anything anyways because I don't know anyone other than family of mine.

It was probably finalized during your second semester, and went through during your third. (The cancellation, that is.)

First of all, find the reason why you were lacking in those classes. Find a way to better the situation so you can pass them. (If you're not already doing this.)

Next, finding a job is easier than you think. (Somewhat...)
You are not going to be able to quickly land a desk-job making $50k/ year right off the bat.
Get a job in fast food, or in a restaurant, or something simple. You're not thinking outside the box right now.
Hell, I never would have known that Sushi would be something I would want a career in, had I not applied for the job.

Get yourself out there, apply for jobs, and get your grades up and keep them up.
Even if you get a job scrubbing toilets; A job's a job. You can't be picky here. That simply job will go a long ways. That simply job will give you experience, no matter the position.

Online classes are the bane of my existence.   
Took a few German classes online, because that's the best my community college had.   
None of the study guides for the exams had anything to do with the exams. I would still get everything wrong, even if my German friends practically did my homework for me.   
I doubt many people actually passed through that class. The last straw for me was taking a final and realizing that everything I had studied for, was nothing close to what was actually on the test.   
   
Then look up places nearby that take online-applications. Refresh that page every day for new openings.   
Think outside the box, too. In my area, just about every RadioShack is hiring. They're all fairly understaffed, and that's because:   
1) You have to take an IQ test to apply   
2) They only pay minimum wage   
   
If you're not getting calls back, then re-work your resume, add in some really good references, and start applying yourself again.   
I was looking for a job not too long ago. I kept refreshing a company's website daily hoping for an opportunity. Finally one came, not in the position I wanted, but still a slot to get in the company. I applied, they asked "Why this position?" and promptly placed me exactly where I wanted to be at.   
It's a matter of chance and being at the right place at the right time. Also, worst-case scenario you wait another month when the Summer is over, and start applying. Let all of the temp college kids leave their jobs, and fill in their spot.

I have this thing i do whenever i mess up my routine.
All you have to do is stay up 24 hours on day, like not go to sleep at all.
And then the next day, you can sleep at an earlier time because you'll obviously be tired.
Say you get up at 2pm on saturday do shit all day, and then stay up all night watching tv shows and still go out on sunday without any sleep, this part is tricky so you should have a whole day of plans set up to distract you, then go home around 8,9 = collapse on your bed and wake up fresh next early morning.

Multiple loud alarms that are out of reach (to the point where you need to get out of bed to turn them off) is the best I have. Try to separate them so you have to go one way for one alarm and then across the room for the other one so you don't just hit snooze quick and pass out again.

User avatar #145538 to #145515 - hoponthefeelstrain (07/19/2014) [-]
we have sleep cycles. one full cycle is 90 minutes, so try going to sleep on a time that will correspond with you waking up at the end of a sleep cycle
let's say you go to bed at 00:30 1 sleep cycle is 2:00 am, the next is 4:30 am and one more would be 6:00 am, it'll be easiest for you to wake up at the end of a sleep cycle.

that's pretty interesting thanks
User avatar #145527 to #145515 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
It's because there's (more than likely) no thriving reason for you to wake up on time.
I'm typing this out at 00:31 and I have to be awake in the next 6 hours.

My body does this thing, where if there's nothing for me to do the next day, I'll sleep through all 16 alarms.
I'll even set some more alarms during my sleep.

Yet if there's something I have to do, such as work... My body wakes me up before the alarm can go off; Either this or I literally jump out of my bed, wide awake with energy.

My best advice is to try Melatonin/ Tylenol/ ZZZQuil to sleep earlier. (Tylenol + Melatonin is a good combo. The Tylenol will make you drowsy and the Melatonin will prolong the drowsiness.)
Then force yourself into a new habit of going to sleep earlier with that. Although it's really, really tough, especially if there's no reason for you to be up the next morning.

You could, alternatively, go camping for a solid week. Or try and do something similar; Cut out all electronics from your life for a week. (Like not going on YouTube, FunnyJunk, Facebook, Tinder, etc.)
User avatar #145607 to #145527 - Aethlius (07/19/2014) [-]
the problem with me is that there is a reason mostly. being it school or going to work. like today i had to wake up super early for work and i almost got to work late
User avatar #145654 to #145607 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
The consequences themselves should be a good enough motivator to keep you awake.

I recommend going with what HopOnTheFeelsTrain said.
This and definitely cutting out computer, TV, and phone usage during the evening/ night.
Trust me, there's nothing more boring and sleep-inducing than being without technology.

Other than that, good luck on getting to sleep earlier and waking up on time.

Set your phone's volume as high as it will go, and go into the settings and make your alarm volume as loud as it will go. Put a loud song onto your phone (assuming you have a modern phone) and make that the song that will play when the alarm goes off. Set several alarms on your phone. I have five, set in intervals of fifteen minutes each. Obviously, this might be a bit ridiculous, so set as many as you think is necessarily, but make the intervals appropriate, so you wake up when you need to.

If you don't have a phone, I assume you have an alarm clock. Put the clock as close as you can to your head, so you'll get as much of the alarm as you can.
User avatar #145608 to #145523 - Aethlius (07/19/2014) [-]

User avatar #145621 to #145608 - thedudeistheman (07/19/2014) [-]
It seems ridiculous, but it does work. Since the intervals are so close, you don't really fall back asleep. Plus, if you're living with someone, they'll eventually get so annoyed if you don't turn them off that they'll just come in and yell at you to turn them off.

Novation launch pad is pretty cool too. I know you were looking at that

M-audio is also a great company. I also recommend the Keyrig 49, I have it, and it came with Ableton LITE. Not sure if it will come with your purchase though.

I'm sorry, right now I'm a bit forgetful! I'm really undecisive and tomorrow I have to make a decision on what I want.

Well I'm going to go around different stores in my area/city looking for different midi controllers and the prices. Also asking the workers whether its good or bad to see if they have personal experience. If not then order it so it can arrive around monday or tuesday. Trying to get to work as soon as possible. Trying to be the next m4sonic of live midi and the next Deadmau5/Skrillex/daft punk. A bit of them all is what I want to do. You know? Not just stick to one style.

Novation Launchpad: www.amazon.com/Launchpad-S-64-Button-Ableton-Contr
And outside of your budget, but still awesome:
Misa Digital Tri-Bass Guitar: misa-digital.myshopify.com/products/tri-bass

As far as software...
Fruityloops would (somewhat) be in your budget.
Ableton Live Lite is also in your budget.
And ACID Music Studio. Although, ACID Music Studio is only great for mixing and mastering.

User avatar #145505 to #145502 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
I personally do not know.
It sounds like they had a custom program to do that.

The Xbox360 (And Xbone) controllers have native support for Windows, while PS3 and PS4 controllers do not.
More often than not, anytime someone is using a DualShock controller, they're using a third-party program to help control what each button does. (Things like Xpadder, Joy2Key, etc.)

Now as for the MIDI aspect of the DualShock controller... That sounds like some custom work went into that.
Either they mapped it out using Xpadder or something and fiddled with the settings, or they created their own custom program for it.
#145508 to #145505 - tecknos (07/19/2014) [-]
Also, sorry for asking too many questions. I really do appreciate the help.
#145507 to #145505 - tecknos (07/19/2014) [-]
So if I have an xbox 360 controller I would be able to just plug it in as a midi controller?
User avatar #145521 to #145507 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
Shawn Wasabi - Pizza Rolls (metal x EDM mashup) Xbox360 controller:
No.
Not unless, somehow, the program in question used DirectInput.
It is possible, however, to bind it to certain keys and use it as a MIDI controller that way.
I doubt the programs would have native support for console controllers, but it is possible to do so.

And as far as the Numark:
That thing looks beast!
I saw the Pegboard Nerds with something very similar.
I guess it just depends on what you're really looking for.
The Launchpad is best with queuing different sound clips. The MixTrack Pro II seems like it's more on the side of mixing.
(So one is for song creation and placement/ timing of sounds, and the other is for mixing, mastering, and creating loops.)

Although I by no means have these products. My knowledge of them is fairly limited.
I would honestly look into reviews for them.
To me it seems like song creation is more based on the Launchpad style of MIDI controllers. Video related. However, if you want to be mixing on-the-fly, as if you were doing a live performance of a set of songs, the MixTrack would be your best bet.
#145534 to #145521 - tecknos (07/19/2014) [-]
I'm leaning more towards novation launchpad right now. The pegboard nerds....that midi is amazing. Looks great. Also I was looking at the Novation Launchkey 25 keys. What do you think?
#145536 to #145534 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
It looks pretty awesome, although this again depends heavily on what you're going to use it for.

Launchkey 25 or 49 == Song and Beat Creation
Launchpad == Song Creation and Sound Clip Mixing
MixTrack == Sound Clip and Song Mixing

The Launchkey looks pretty beast. It really does.
Launchkey would be your best bet if you're looking for creating your own sounds and going from there. Starting from scratch, really.
Launchpad would be great if you take pre-made sound clips, from existing songs, sample packs, or something you've made, and mixing it together at will.
MixTrack would be great for, well, mixing pre-existing songs and sounds.

Pegboard Nerds used something more... High-tech.
When they play live, they only really mix. They blend songs together. They're not creating something as they're going.
Which is why, chances are, you're probably not going to use the MixTrack that much. (If you bought it.)

Varien is a good artist who uses the M-Audio Keyrig 49 and Novation Launchpad.
Throttle and M4Sonic use the Launchpad, although they primarily use it to mix sound clips and form a song from it. Metrognome uses similar gadgets, as well.

I would say, go for the Launchkey 49, if song creation is your thing. Yes it's a bit more expensive, but well worth it.

She was just gonna fall head over heels for me, just because I gave her a thing. Yeah, I had this all perfectly thought out in my head and everyone as gonna respect me for it.

First of all, get that "nice guy/ douche-bag" thing out of your head.   
If you keep thinking along these lines, then you're going to force yourself to be something you're not.   
   
Be yourself.   
Don't blatantly give out things to people. Giving them something won't make them like you. Sure they'll play along and pretend they do, but deep down they're forcing themselves to put on an act.   
   
The only true way to get girls, is to just be yourself. Your unfiltered self.   
If you have to filter yourself, then maybe you're not hanging around with the right people.   
   
Anyhow, the key to a good, solid, long-lasting relationship is to be yourself, start off slow, and make sure you know her real well before dating her.   
Being "nice" isn't being yourself. Being a "douche-bag" isn't being yourself, either.   
If you feel like you have to put on a front to get girls, then you need to re-evaluate yourself.   
   
Just be patient, and sooner or later things will fall into place and before you know it you'll have a girlfriend. Don't be a try-hard when it comes to this stuff. You just sit back and watch things unfold, and go along with it.

First of all, you don't give women SHIT until she is in a relationship. Giving her stuff before you are in a relationship is a sign of weakness and she will NEVER want a man who is like that.
User avatar #145593 to #145488 - iridium (07/19/2014) [-]
I dunno, I think it depends on what you give her and also if you aren't already associated with another. If you can't give anything you're probably not going to have a good relationship anyways as the whole point of a relationship is something mutual so there's some give and take. But you definitely don't start with anything you would really feel bad about if it went down the drain, and you don't make a habit of being a guy who is only really about giving material things.
User avatar #145603 to #145593 - hawaiianhappysauce (07/19/2014) [-]
My point is that if a girl is giving you hugs, you hug them back. If a girl is flirting, you flirt back, if a girl is teasing you tease back, if a girl gives you a gift, you should return the favor, etc etc etc. I would never give a gift to a girl that I wasn't sure about having a shot at.

Then you don't know women. Women hate men who get walked over and are too nice. They want someone who is going to challenge them, someone who will make life interesting. They don't want a personal butler.
User avatar #145498 to #145497 - thebestpieever (07/19/2014) [-]
It just troubles me. Phrasing things like "Don't show weakness" makes it woefully clear how you see these things. Women aren't out to get you, nor are they biased against you. And you're not a hunter or a warrior. You're just a dude, there's no need for "strenght" or any kind of dominance. Don't let yourself be a pushover, yes, but let's put it in clear terms: you like this person, so engage this person as a person, not as an object of adoration. She's not a prey or a prize, she's just some random girl who you find attractive.
User avatar #145499 to #145498 - hawaiianhappysauce (07/19/2014) [-]
I think you are misunderstanding what I'm trying to get across. Giving an Ipad to someone who you don't really know well enough to get them to love you is pretty lame, it shows you have a false sense of what love is.

Yeah, I agree with that bit. But I think phrasing things like that as weakness is... troubling. Because words mean something, and I don't think that what one ought to be looking for is a relationship where they have power or strength.

Is there a way to send someone you're not friends with on Facebook a message and still have them get a notification?

User avatar #145449 to #145446 - larsfillmore (07/19/2014) [-]
Pretty sure it depends on how they have a filter set up
#145457 to #145449 - confusedasian (07/19/2014) [-]
It does. My filter setting is open, so anyone can send me messages. I don't have to worry because I don't know many people and not many people know me.

Let's say a filter is on... Would sending a friend request bypass it
#145473 to #145470 - confusedasian (07/19/2014) [-]
Yeah, if you send a friend request and they accept it then message away.
#145476 to #145473 - mr skeltal (07/19/2014) [-]
What if they don't like would it let you send one through so you have a chance to say who you are?
#145496 to #145476 - confusedasian (07/19/2014) [-]
During the friend requests it gives you an option to add a message I believe. I normally don't send friend requests, but the last time I did I had that option.

I've been in a relationship with the same girl since i was 13 (i'm 19 now), and now our needs have changed but our feelings have not. I want to go out and socialize and party while all she wants to do is stay in and sleep and do nothing.

She's EXTREMELY anti-pot, anti-alcohol, pretty much anything an average young adult would use to alter their state of mind. I don't do hard drugs, but i do smoke pot daily with friends of mine she doesn't really like or tolerate, while also having to lie to her about it. I don't know what to choose. I AM happy with her, and i don't need to be stoned/drunk to enjoy my time with her.

My friends, on the other hand, have been with me since i was 6. We've all been best fuckbuddies for our entire lives and i can't picture me every being the same without my partner's in crime. I love my bros to death and i can't choose between them. We go out nearly every day/night to toke/drink/be guys. My girlfriend doesn't understand why i need guy time, or she'll suggest i hang out with her guy friends who are nice, i just find them to be annoying in large sessions.

What should i do? I don't want to leave my girlfriend because i honestly think i'll marry her, but i don't want my stupid choices and piles of lies to come between us if we do end up getting married. I also don't want to sever the ties with my bros since our closeness with one another is borderline gay couple. i always thought about quitting smoking/drinking, but even if i do, she won't be comfortable when i'm chilling with my homies. yeah, i don't need her permission to see my friends, but it's easier on the both of us if i tell her, but she's super clingy so if i spend more than 1 day out of the week with them, she'll throw a passive-aggressive fit which nobody wants.
User avatar #145539 to #145445 - hoponthefeelstrain (07/19/2014) [-]
maybe don't hang out with them every night. Spend equal time with both of them.
User avatar #145533 to #145445 - thedudeistheman (07/19/2014) [-]
It's been said already, but compromise. Tell her you'll stop drinking and smoking, or at the least that you'll do it less (if you've already contemplated quitting both, then maybe now's the time to do so). However, tell her you're also going to keep hanging out with your friends, because they seem like they're your best friends. This way, both party gets something they want. Chances are that a large source of your girlfriend's worrying is likely coming from the alcohol and pot to begin with.
#145490 to #145445 - saltybanana (07/19/2014) [-]
maaaaaaaaaah man i heard your cry of help and im here to drop knowledge on a mudaphucka!

ive seen this situation of yours many times including myself aswell you know when guys say "bro, bro before hoes!" yeah that gay ass retared term. well honestly your bros arent always going to be there. like when you need to let your feeling out cause come on, even us tough guys need to relieve some of our deep feelings to someone. yeah sometimes you will feel comfortable with the homies about that feelings but i think personally thats why you have a partner for.

you need to talk to your gf man to woman. tell her man just say "babe i need my guy time, there are just somethings you cant do for me. dont take it wrong baby" boom! dats it mane, dont over sauce it or anything! just keep ity simple man. if she doesnt like it well fuck dat bitch! jk dont do that, yeah i know girls are complicated bro. they just dont know what they want. and whatever you do, dont do any of that break stuff. they never end well. reason i could think she is clingy cause she thinks youre wasting your life away with your friends, with the drugs and poopin n scoopin. just say "hey i can stop for you, but i need my guys"
#145458 to #145445 - confusedasian (07/19/2014) [-]
Hang with your friends, but you really don't need to do the drugs or drink. She might not be happy with you still hanging with your friends  You said she was clingy. , but at least you're not doing drugs or drinking. She's probably worried that while your drunk or high that you'll do something bad.

As a guy who'd share the same mindset to a degree with your girlfriend I would maybe say you'd only smoke or drink around her. The biggest fear I have with my partner is him drinking or smoking around other people and god knows what happens, it's just straight up paranioa most of the time so if they were there and thought "Well hey, he's getting stoned, playing video games, drinking and maybe rambling about dumb shit what on Earth have I got to be worried about" perhaps it'd sort things out.
User avatar #145448 to #145445 - larsfillmore (07/19/2014) [-]
Explain to her that there's guy time, girl time(her), family time, and you time. There's attention that you need to give to everyone but that doesn't mean that you care about her any less

You should probably get off the pot and everything. Its not too good for getting jobs and you should do it for her.

You might be better off looking into a VPN.
User avatar #145451 to #145444 - fistfireace (07/19/2014) [-]
You could try this site: www.moviesplanet.tv/

It's almost like Netflix, except it's free and most movies are in 720p (except older movie titles, and some are in 1080p). It's really good and has a few decent titles. Not sure if movies on there are also on Netflix (I can't remember, really) but there are tons of movies with a few TV shows.

The only problem there is, is that you have to sign up for it. I used a fake email address (just created one randomly to the point where I lose my info, I'm screwed) just in case something happens. Just don't get caught using a fake email because they will ban you from the site.

Overall, I'd rate it 7.5/10.

If you don't want to use that site, I found this on Google: internet.wonderhowto.com/how-to/access-us-sites-like-netflix-hulu-content-outside-us-0156328/ I'm not sure if it works or not, but shouldn't hurt to try it.

My dog hasn't pissed or shit for around 36 hours now. She still eats like a horse, drinks just as much as she always has, and she's very much as playful as she was. When we went for our daily run through the neighborhood, she kept up to her everyday pace, but she hasn't even looked for a place to go make turd or urinate. She isn't acting sick at anything and I just don't know what's up with her.
User avatar #145442 to #145441 - georgesmoustache (07/19/2014) [-]
If she needs to go, she will go. Allow her to go outside when she needs to though just to be safe but if it gets worse then visit a vet

I need some advice, I'm 16 in summer and I currently work at a resteraunt as a chef which I've wanted to do for a long time, last week I had a shit day like absolutely horrendous and the head of the kitchen told me that I need to rethink my decision to be a chef which destroyed the last little sliver of confidence I had and I've spent the entire week doubting myself and my abilities and whether this is what I want to do or not before I get my parents to pay over hundred pounds for the equipment I need for the course and then decide that I don't like it and I've spoke to my parents about it and they tell me that I need to stay and refuse to listen to me because I'm wrong and this is a great opportunity which it is and just because I'm not enjoying it I can't quit even if my mum has spent 18 years in a job she hates and would tell me to quit if I didn't need the money but the only idea I have is stick through it until I find another job I can do and enjoy as much. So what would you do?

To fail is to have doubt.
To fail is to have doubt in yourself.

Just because you made some mistakes, and maybe weren't fast enough, doesn't mean that you're a failure.
Never give up.

You're still young. You have the rest of your life ahead of you. Keep trying at cooking. Practice. Go to work and tell them you want to become better, but don't know how.
Learn from your mistakes and continue on.
#145578 to #145437 - mr skeltal (07/19/2014) [-]
But I'm not enjoying it like I was before, I used to go home and practice every day but I don't fell the same desire that I had before and that's the part that's hurts about it, there used to be nothing in this planet I'd rather do than cooking but after he told me to rethink that's my whole world crashing down because I used to think I was good at it and I used to think that's was the only thing in the world for me because I don't have the same passion for anything else like I could do in college and make a job out of in the future
User avatar #145601 to #145578 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/19/2014) [-]
Man, you're 16.
Just because one person said something, while they were rushed and stressed out, doesn't mean it'll hold up true for the rest of your life.

It sounds like the restaurant was super busy, and maybe you couldn't keep up or made one too many mistakes.
I know how it is working in restaurants. I used to work with my best-friend's older brother in a Japanese Steak House.
Everyone would dog him for cooking slow. Juan (the older brother), had burned food one too many times, and from that point on he cooked slowly. When he would go out and cook for a table, he would always take one to two hours to cook for them. Meanwhile the other chefs only needed all of thirty minutes, maybe fourty-five minutes max.

The food industry is a tough one, especially when you're being overwhelmed.
People say things they shouldn't have. And to me it sounds like that's what happened in your case.
Hell, once I've had a co-worker tell me he would "beat [my] fucking face in" while working in fast food.

If you really want, talk to the head of the kitchen about this.
Ask him where you can improve. Ask him to help you become better, and improve upon the areas that you may be lacking in.

Being a Chef, in my eyes, is a real fun job. Once you get things down and can work under pressure, it's easy and super fun.
You just have to remember to try and stay calm and collected when things go south, and especially when you're swamped with orders.

You need to re-kindle that passion, man. Talk it out with the head chef, see how you can improve yourself, and work from there. You're not a lost cause. Far from it.
#145624 to #145601 - mr skeltal (07/19/2014) [-]
He believes that i can do it but its a case of i dont believe if i can do it and if hes giving me false hope to try and make me a better chef or if he means it sincerely, I spoke to him today whilse i was there and he told me he didnt mean it like i took it so he didnt mean to make me contemplate if i can do it, he tried to make me prove to him that i can do it which i personally think is a really shitty method of a pep talk


Thanks for you advice really, Its meant a lot to me during this 'situation' but for now im gonna stick by it and see how it goes and then decide on my future

Just a side note: If you get a trial version of Vegas, it places an annoying watermark in the bottom of the video like a sticker, then puts more on as time passes. It's a trial, so that's bound to happen, but just a heads up if you plan on debuting a project you worked on in the trial.
User avatar #145430 to #145429 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx ONLINE (07/18/2014) [-]
Vegas is good, Adobe Premiere is great as well.

Both of which cost an arm and a leg, although you are best off going with their free trials and seeing how you like them.

Alright guys, I have a question for y'all. (the tech board is dead so I have to ask y'all.)

I'm wanting to make a good gaming computer, but I really don't know the parts that are worth buying for it. I have a budget of no more than $2,500 dollars, would that be enough to get a decent gaming PC?

That would be more than enough to get you a high-end gaming PC build, 21.5" to 24" monitor, mechanical keyboard, a really nice mouse, a really nice mousepad, speakers, and an external HDD.

So yes. $2,500 is sufficient enough to last you a while on a gaming PC.
