2020.07.04 20:20 BlauwpetjeOverestimate sexual interest?
This sounds so strange, even alien to me that I wonder what exactly is measured and how. Is this about men in totally different circles than where I come? The men I know and talk to about these issues, often decide not to take initiative towards a woman for fear it won't be worthwhile, and in the worst case, humiliating. Paradoxically the ones who might overestimate themselves are the few who still are rather successful. It may be about the few times men have interesting and nice contact with women, and because it is so exceptional, they become overenthusiastic and estimate their chances 50% while in reality it is just 10. The speeddating example in the article is mostly an example of an exceptional situation, not everyday life. What is NOT measured is the many cases men don't ask for a phone number or try to make a new appointment (or even hardly talk to the woman) because they think it too soon and cannot imagine the woman likes him that much - and of course, she doesn't take initiative because she thinks he should do it, even though she does find him attractive. Another possibility is that even the moderate or low esteem most men have of their own attractiveness is too high because women are so selective.

2020.04.05 23:59 DolSparnurI (22m) can’t seem to find “the click”?
Tl;dr: I want someone so we complement/enrich each other but have a lot of different facets. Am I setting the bar to high? Hello everyone! This first paragraph is context: It has been 6 months since my semi mutual break up from a relationship of 3 years (it just did not work out). My ex was energetic, caring and had quite a bit of common sense. She was open minded to my interests, at least as long as all was good. She was also into fitness and extremely sexy. But she was also really toxic. I can gladly say I’m almost over her and also getting more and more open to new girls. I have met some and even had an unsuccessful ONS (I felt too much anxiety as I was not used to the experience). While I don’t date I do “put myself out there”. I have no trouble talking to people or flirting and did speeddating recently. I have multiple facets to my personality: ambivert, reads, laid back, high cuddle/sex drive, interest in philosophy/patterns/psychology/discussions..., very open minded (I can develop an interest in almost anything, + into kink), (video) gaming, anime/fantasy, sports, I take care of myself, I like adventure/nature, I like travelling/being on the road yet also just sitting at home. I like the glamorous, I like the more common parties etc. Now here comes the problem: I don’t have a full click with any of the girls I meet. My 6 best friends (2 groups of 2 and 2 individuals) are also like me in all those things I named + bring something extra (like instruments or programming ...) But I really want this “full click”. I want my next relationship to be the last. Yet all the girls I have met have not been.. captivating enough? I have one girl friend (not gf) that matches my extroverted personality, sexual drive (did not do anything but I know she’s like that) dirty humor and party going. Another that matches my introvert side, geeky interests, punny humor, discussions, open mindedness but seems to lack the sportiness, gaming,.. The girls I do click with already have boyfriends (and those bf’s are people I really get along with because they are like me). Am I setting my standards too high for wanting someone with at least most of those things? Or who would like to learn them? I want someone so we not only complement but enrich each other. I would try to bring the same to the table. If she was into art I would also try and get into it for example. Thanks! I hope I did not come across negatively. I have been told I convey the opposite online.
2020.02.13 19:10 Salomon_29Loosing hope and reason in my life
Sorry for a very long post, but I still hope some of you make it through and can give me some advice I (29,m) need some help regarding my life situation. I am an engineer and my hobbies are cars, hinking, books and documentaries. I do have friends, but not that many and I feel we are doing less and less as time goes. I am introvert and very restrained when meeting new people (which lasts quite a long time). Additionally I dont really know what to talk to people about (my brain is just empty..) and I am a real headperson, overthinking everything multiple times. For those reasons I don't really meet new people and my group of friends consists only of men. My last (and only) relationship was 8 years ago and since then if met five women i was intrested in. Not because i am picky, just because i don't meet new people.. First was a friend of a friend, we got along very well but she was two years older than me and didn't want a boyfriend younger than herself (at least that what was she told me). Second was at a speeddating event, she asked for my number but wasn't intrested afterwards, third at work, but soon she sent our team her wedding inventation so she is out of question, fourth was a physiotherapist i met because of an accident I had, we got quite along but again, she wasn't intrested in meeting me outside of the training. Last is now very recent again a coworker. I was furthest with her (she wasn't) in thinking that there would be a chance. I knew she was single in autum last year and since then we met tree times outside work, first two for a hike and a week ago for doing some work to her car. Beginning of this year I learned that she has a boyfriend now and I was hoping that I at least could met new people throug her as a friend (she is very extrovert and has loads of friends). She knows i was interested in more than being just friends before I knew she is in a relationship and she still wants to be friends which would be nice. But because she has that many friends (she is foregin and often out of the county to meet her friends and boyfriend) she doesn't know how much time we can spend. So I would need her quite a lot but at the same time she does not need me at all. I had a lot of hope in this because it was the closest to getting a girlfriend (while still being very far away) and the first new friend in like 5 or 6 years. So now I am at a piont in my life where I just life for my job (which isn't bad, but not worth living for), not seeing a reason for my life and I lost hope for finding new friends and especially a relationship. Has anyone been in a similar situation and got out of it or does anyone have some tipps for me how to get out of it?
2020.01.18 01:50 DryconRejected for the first time in sixteen years
Yesterday I had a job interview at a large energie distribution company. I had speeddates with multiple people from multiple departments and disciplines. Was an interesting afternoon after all, got a good idea of the work and the people. Today I got a call that they choose someone else. Reason was that they thought I probably wouldn't fit well in the company. For me that's good enough of a reason but it still sucks. I'm not the type of guy who thinks "meh" and just puts it away. Needs a bit more time. I'm working for the same company for about 16-17 years now of which the last 10 in the same department. By now the job ofcourse has no secrets for me and I'm pretty bored. The last two years I learned Python too improve my work with more automated stuff and improve efficiency. It also gave me something to focus on during these dull years. But the company is not IT related so there are no new projects for me to work on. That's why I'm trying to find a new job to improve my skills and do something completely different. Not much success thus far. So that's my sob story for today. It helped me a little to write it down. Sorry for no memes and stuff. ;-)
2018.11.29 22:54 dddbbbTIL: g for creating a column of incrementing numbers
TL;DR: Select several lines containing 0 and type g. I often need a column of incrementing numbers. In the past, I've used vim-speeddating's blank incrementor which lets you select a line with a number and several lines without and it fills in the blanks with incrementing numbers. But speeddating needs the numbers to be 'words', so code like this doesn't work:
Which is annoying because I'm usually copypasting the same line to make a sequence. But Vim now includes g to accomplish this task! Instead of blanks, it looks for the same number on each line. It also doesn't require block selection. Combined with textobj-word-column.vim, I can vicg to convert that first code block to:

2018.01.06 10:07 lilmisscopypasterI speed dated the Devil.
I speed dated the Devil. Let me explain, a while ago, I was at a bar with some friends. They had all collectively felt bad for me since my boyfriend had broken up with me a few days prior and they wanted to give me a good time I suppose. For some reason however, I felt...Unnerved. Like someone was watching me, but when I turned around no one was. Weird. Anyways, a few hours went by and my friend suggested I try speeddating. I’d never really considered it before, the thought of going made me feel sick. “C’mon, it could be fun! You never know, you might meet some hot stud.” “Yeah, sure.” I said sarcastically. “No, come on! This is your chance, you’re young, sexy and single. Plus, you’re bumming me out being all...Lonely and stuff. What do you have to lose?” I would later come to realize I would have in fact, a shitton to lose. But I did it anyway, after all I was lonely and if I really was depressing my friends I guessed I should give it a shot. I got all dressed up, put on some lipstick, a low cut red dress, hoop earrings and gold heels. When I got there, we had a few minutes to talk to other people, then we chose who to pick at the end of the night. Great. Most of the men were mouthbreathing neckbeards who looked like they’d never talked to a woman much less dated one. Pretty sure half the guys had BO or just got nervous sweating. The last man, however...Was completely out of place. Like a jigsaw piece that didn’t fit. He had slick black hair, he was wearing a high collared striped red shirt and black jeans. His eyes seemed somehow...Different. Like he’d seen some shit. I assumed he must have been tired from the bags under his eyes but he seemed to be bright and chipper enough. The thing that stood out to me the most, however, was his smile. It was bright but it was wide and slightly unnerving. Like his teeth were having trouble fitting in his mouth, it was far too many teeth. They were perfectly straight though. He looked like he was in his early thirties and had a thick british accent. He had a moustache and beard which framed his strong jaw perfectly. I was immediately intimidated, not being in contact with a handsome man in weeks, I smiled nervously. “Hello, there.” He said, his voice like melted butter to my ears. “Uh, hello!” I said, far too enthusiastic, I mentally kicked myself. “Sorry, I- I don’t normally do this.” I said, nervously. “Oh, it’s completely fine, darling, I’m new to this myself.” I almost choked at the pet name, my face and ears heating up, which he probably could see. Something about this man made me weak to my knees even sitting down, fuck. He was nothing like any other man I’d ever gone out with before, much less in the room. The few minutes seemed to fly by, I asked him what he worked as he said he worked in an office of sorts. Sometimes, he said, it would get stressful but it paid well. His last boss fired him, apparently, he described him as being a dick which I laughed at. He told me his name was Lucielle. At the end of the session he kissed the back of my hand and got up from our table. Needless to say, I knew the man I was picking at the end of the date. We went back to my place afterwards, I invited him in and it only took a few minutes before he was making out with me up against the door. The sex. Was. Amazing. This guy was a fucking monster in bed, he’d obviously had some practice. I assumed in the morning, he’d want to leave, as most guys in speed dates do, but he didn’t. In fact when I woke in the morning, he was making breakfast. Bacon and eggs. “Hey handsome.” I said, brushing the hair from my eyes, noticing the large tee shirt I was buried in. I couldn’t even remember putting it on but it was too large to be mine. I blushed. “Hi sleepyhead. Here, made this for you.” He handed me a plate of hash browns and eggs shaped like hearts. How the fuck did he even do that? “I kinda thought you’d be gone in the morning.” I said, picking at my eggs which tasted amazing. Damn this guy was a chef too? “Why would you think that?” He sat down next to me. “I dunno, most guys don’t wanna stay around for long after...Y’know.” “Well I guess I’m not like most men.” “I suppose not.” I chuckled. He took my hand in his and kissed the back of it, making me blush. Those dangerous eyes stared into mine and I smiled. “I think...I’m addicted to you.” He said. “Is that so?” “Absolutely.” I laughed and we shared the morning together before I had to head off for work. I gave him my number and that was that. We began dating, and it was fucking amazing. Probably some of the best months of my life, if not the best. And, like I said, the sex was top notch. But...After a while, he began to get...Clingy. Not just in a cute way he’d wait for me to get home, like he hadn’t had anything better to do, like a puppy waiting for his owner to come home. Although, most of the time I felt like he was the owner and I was the dog. He’d ask me to stay home from work to be with him and when I said no he’d get angry, telling me I was unappreciative and bad for the relationship. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the man but at a certain point...There is only so much you can put up with. That point came one night when I was out drinking with a bunch of friends, I even told him I was, he knew I would be out most of the night but he kept texting and calling, telling me to come home, that he missed me. I was leaving with my friend, Johan, when I saw him. He was waiting for me. He was waiting for me in a fucking alley and waiting to pounce on Johan, beating him almost to a pulp. I told him to stop, screamed at him, pulling at his arms and shoulders, but he pushed me back, looking at me with dangerous eyes. I swear to god for a split second, I thought they were a blood red. Maybe it was my imagination, maybe it was on account of how bloodshot they were but I know what I saw and it scared the shit out of me. He didn’t stop until there was blood on his face and his fists were bruised. He dropped Johan to the ground and I yelled at him. “What the fuck were you thinking?! What did you do, you monster!” I screamed, rushing to Johan’s side, thanking christ when I noted he was still breathing. “Yeah, that’s right, I’m the monster.” He growled, staring at me then Johan’s crumpled body. “I’ll see you at home.” And that was that. He left me and my friend in the alley, at three AM, the rain pouring on both of us, probably stinging Johan’s beaten face. I called an ambulance, they asked what happened and I told them some man attacked him. I don’t even think Johan remembered what happened. Maybe he was too scared to talk about it. Couldn’t blame him. He never talked to me after that. I just lost a friendship because of my dickhead boyfriend and there was nothing I could do. Well, there was one thing. I sent him a text message that read “We’re through, asshole.” And I never went back home. I called my mom to pick me up and stayed at her home. After a while I got my stuff from my place when I knew he was gone and after a while, I started dating again. However, I couldn’t stop thinking about Lucielle. When I dreamt I could see his eyes staring back at me. When I had sex with my new boyfriend, I thought of him. A few weeks went by and I got more and more depressed. My boyfriend didn’t seem to notice, or maybe he didn’t care. One night, I got home from work. My feet hurt and I was stressed so I was relieved to be home. When I reached for the door handle, however, I noticed...The door was already open. “Babe?” I said, laying my keys down. As I entered my home I felt terror run through me to see all the lights were turned off and a smear of crimson trailed through the hall, leading into the kitchen. I followed, trying to control my shaking. “...Babe? Please talk to me…” I whispered, mostly to myself. When I got to the kitchen, I screamed. I couldn’t even hear myself, I stood in terror, looking at the crumpled remains of my boyfriend. “Oh god, oh god please no!” I wished, I prayed to god that what I was seeing was some fucking nightmare, I closed my eyes tightly and sobbed before opening them again, screaming once again as I realized I wasn’t dreaming. His body looked...Burned. Melted, almost, his flesh peeling off his face, his eyes stuck in a perpetual state of wide agony. “Fuck, please, please!” I gripped the sides of my head, pulling at my hair, “What, you didn’t think you’d seen the last of me, did you?” I heard a familiar voice from behind me. I turned, facing Lucielle. Only...He was different now. His eyes were a deep red, his smile now broken and stretched, his skin a hellish red, what looked like horns protruding from his head, curling up like a ram. “Oh god...Why, why would you do this, you monster! You’re a fucking monster!” I screamed, pounding into his hard chest, tears streaming from my face. “Yes that’s right darling...I’m the monster.” He said and I felt myself slip into darkness, passing out. I didn’t even feel him catching me. I awoke in my apartment. He was fucking making breakfast, back to his normal self. “What the fuck… What the fuck?!” I said, trying to get up from bed, but I felt a force begin to push me down, pinning me to the bed once again. “Now, now, let’s not get into an argument.” He said, handing me a plate of eggs and hash browns. I slapped the plate out of his hands and he frowned. For a second I thought he was going to strike me, but it never came. He snapped his fingers and the plate rematerialized in his hands. Heart shaped eggs. So that’s how he did it. “Come, eat your eggs, you need to eat, darling.” “Don’t.” I said. “Don’t what? Don’t fawn over my beautiful girlfriend?” “I am not your girlfriend.” He grinned, placing a kiss on my head. “Of course you are. After all, your old boyfriend broke up with you, remember?” He said, I felt rage boiling over me. “He didn’t break up with me, you killed him you fucking degenerate!” He frowned, shaking his head. “No, no that’s not what happened.” He said, simply. “Yeah, it was!” “Come now, do you really think he would have treated you like I treat you?” “Stop.” “Did he kiss you like I do? Hold you like me, look like me?” “I said stop!” “Did he make you feel the way I do?” I didn’t answer. At this point I had no idea if what he was saying was wrong. I was so confused, my head buzzing. He brought a hand up to stroke hair behind my ear and smiled softly. My heart pounded in my chest. “And...After what I am about to tell you, you will never leave me again.” I said nothing. He smiled again, and reached over to me, pulling up my shirt. “Hey, what are you doing assho-” He placed both his warm hands on my stomach and I felt my heart drop. “We’re going to have a child.”
2017.10.27 01:31 hm--I [28sM] am really attracted to a good friend and colleague [25F] (who has a boyfriend) and it bothers me a lot
(Tagging this as non-romantic since I don't really want to be more than good friends even if I do find her attractive.) I (28M) have been single my entire life so far. I've never even kissed a girl. Now, when my colleague (25F), let's call her Kate, started working here (2 years ago) I didn't know whether she had a boyfriend yet. I was immediately attracted to her, though. Eventually, luckily before making a fool out of myself, I did find out that she has a boyfriend, and is actually in a very serious long-term relationship. So she's completely off-limits and I would never dare try to get between them. Over time, we also became good friends. We really get along and I would hate to lose that friendship. That doesn't stop me from being attracted to her, though, and I find that this really bothers me in two ways:
I used to care less about still being single, but seeing her around reminds me of that. It's like you're walking around feeling completely fine until you see someone with some ice cream and you think "aw, I want some ice cream, too!" and you suddenly feel bad about not having ice cream even though you didn't care that much about that before. I don't know if that analogy makes any sense to you, it kind of makes sense for me.
When I'm looking for a girlfriend, I can't help but compare potential candidates to her. I find her much more attractive than most of the girls I meet. I've used Tinder, and I've been speeddating, but with almost every girl I think "yeah, she looks alright, but Kate is still more attractive to me", or when talking to a girl I'll think "yeah, we get along all right, but Kate and I get along a lot more". I know I shouldn't think like that, but I can't exactly help it.
So what do I do about this? It does bother me a lot. It sometimes even keeps me up at night. It's stressing me out. I can do what I've been doing, and that's to just not tell her about this (even though I talk to her about almost everything else) and just keep looking and trying new ways to find a someone who I like enough to make me not think of Kate. I've also considered maybe keeping her at a distance for a while, kind of pause our friendship, so I can let this attraction fade a bit, but that would probably involve telling her and I'm afraid of what would happen to our friendship if I do. I don't think I can keep her at a distance without telling her, because then I'd just be hurting her and hurting our friendship, and it would also be pretty much impossible since we see each other and work together every working day. The most drastic change would be to leave the company and go work somewhere else (it's a small company, so I can't move to another department or something, she's going to be sitting close to me and I'm going to be working with her no matter what), but I don't really want to do that. I get along really well with my colleagues, and while there may be some things that bother me about work, I'm not really thinking of leaving yet. In that case I think I'd also have to inform her about this, because it seems a bit rude just to leave and cut contact without saying anything. So is there anything I can do, or do I just have to keep enduring this? tl;dr: I'm bothered by how attracted I am to a good (non-single) friend and colleague. Can I improve this situation somehow or am I just going to have to endure it?
2017.03.07 12:15 TooManyThrowAway4567Where to meet girls ?
I know that question might seem pathetic but it's legitimate. Some backstory : I'm a french 27 yo guy, I'm not too ugly (I hope), I have a job, an apartment etc. I had a very long relationship (7 years) with a girl I met in high school. We were kind of introvert, like we preferred staying inside together, playing videogames, watching movies or whatever than going out with friends. After that, I got a LDR with a girl I met in the US, I visited her once, she visited me once but she decided it was too expensive to keep that relashionship (ouch). In the same way, since it was a LDR, we spent a lot of time on the phone/skype/texting and not so much outside. That relashionship lasted 1.5 years and ended 2 weeks ago (I might seem insensitive but it was/is really hard). Now I'm trying to find someone else to share my life with. Except I don't have any connection / ways to meet new girls. I work in IT so my coworkers are mostly males, mostly married/with kids. I tried Online dating website (Meetic) with absolutely no success. I tried tinder with very little success too (in the US it was way better). So there goes my question : in what kind of places can I meet single girls ? I thought about dancing lessons but i'm so clumsy ! I also thought about speeddating but it's like 25€ a night. Thanks for your suggestions EDIT: If you want, I can pm you a picture of me, maybe you can tell me what to change about me physically
2016.10.09 20:37 sav_heroI'm thinking of Starting a Non-profit to Facilitate Dating.
Dating really has to be a face to face activity. But for-profit face2face options are expensive. I think we can already see the limitations with for-profit models, in that online apps are turning into games, and face2face options like meetups and speeddates have low turnout or high cost (venue). I think a non-profit model will reduce costs substantially, while also garnering interest from all the groups that may benefit indirectly from this non-profit's activities (say, wedding dress makers). I could probably get the government interested in this as well. It seems that what we really need is a large area where people can both hang out, and find actually useful dating advice. Think like a huge trendy coffee shop & bookstore except there is a "host" who introduces people to each other like a good wingman, and maybe a counselor who can meet people individually and help them find their game. The host can also be a gentle whip to get the timid yet somehow still excessively picky females to get into the game. I also see that a lot of millennials are poor. Poor people don't have the resources to date. A non-profit is in a better position to provide what they need to mingle. So the giant coffee/bookstore can also have separate a club/bar, and maybe private suits for some privacy. Maybe also have a space to give people some makeover tips, show them samples of what good appearance looks like, and maybe provide some starter kits. This would all be only located in New York City. I find a big problem with interstate business is that they lose sense of the local situation. So this entity would be made by locals for the service of locals, because that way it would serve locals better. The big corporate managers tend to ruin local businesses by making the whole chain uniform (it is cheaper to have terrible service), so I want to avoid that pitfall since "service" would be our brand. Thoughts?
2016.01.02 07:39 8monstersJohn Campbell and Blue Star No. 2, Red vs. Blue(Part 1)
After dropping off that mercenary at Campbell’s place, Blue Star was carrying Campbell to the furniture factory. Blue Star was slowly getting more and more infuriated. If they did anything to her…I swear to whatever god they believe in they will regret it Blue Star thought. They arrived at the factory around 3 minutes after they left Campbell’s apartment. Blue Star had to fly slow to avoid giving the man in black whiplash. As they land they look at the factory. It wasn’t very big. In fact, it looked almost abandoned. Campbell looked at the one door. He switched to thermal vision to try to see what was going on in there. “I can’t see anything in there.” Campbell said. “Don’t you have a thermal vision mode?” Blue Star asked almost sarcastically. “Yeah I do, but it looks like when I look at you. A massive amount of really hot fog, I can’t see a thing” Campbell said sarcastically. He was still injured from the fight and holding his chest the entire time. “Let’s get this done. You need help” Blue Star said concerned. “I’ll be fine. We have to get this done. What is this girl to you anyway?” Campbell asked. Blue Star’s face changed to a look of solemn. “She is my daughter…I need to save her” Blue Star said. Campbell started shaking his head. “Shit…don’t worry. We will get her back” Campbell said reassuring. He gestured towards the door. “After you Mr. Blue” Campbell said. Blue Star nodded and walked into the factory. As he walked in he saw science labs and a small fenced in armory. “I thought you said this was a furniture factory…” Blue Star said. Looking around. The worst part was, where were all the people? “It was…I am pretty positive my couch came from here…What the hell is this…how did they get this into the city?” Campbell replied. As they had this brief interaction, they heard laughter coming from a catwalk above. “This is the end of the line Shadow…” A man on the Catwalk said. He was a average sized black man with a glowing red aura around him. “You have been a thorn in our sides for too long” “You see…I would take your threat seriously…but I brought some backup” Campbell said nodding towards Blue Star. “Ah I see…Blue Star right? Well, let us show you our insurance” As he said that, a group of 30 mercenaries came out. None of them armed with firearms. However 3 of the clones came with them, two of them carrying a panel with Jenny on them, and one of them wearing a strange suit of armor. “You wouldn’t try anything with a hostage would you? Move a muscle and we kil…” Before he could even finish off a sentence Blue Star had already flown faster than anyone except Campbell could see and grabbed the man by the neck. “You touch the girl you will be a splatter on the wall.” Blue Star said. His eyes glowing so Blue that it was almost blinding. However the man wasn’t scared. He started laughing. “Oh a fighter…well…why don’t you pick on someone your own size.” As he said this a red blast came from his hand. The blast blew Blue Star back 20 feet and back onto the ground level. It felt like the same energy the military used on him in Corsica. “Well…any more ideas” Campbell asked. Blue Star got up. He was even more enraged. The military must be funding these guys. “You see, The Black Isle recently got its hand on some GMRF technology. That suit of armor over there and my condition here. You see, we prepared for everything Campbell could bring to this. You are just bonus.” The man said. “We can monologue later…this ends now you son of a bitch” Blue Star said. He flew up and went to punch the man, but the man deflected it and punched Blue Star straight in the gut. I felt that…how did I feel that “You will find that I am every bit your equal Mr. Star.” The Man said. He then grabbed Blue Star by the shirt and gave an upper cut that threw Blue Star through the roof and into the air. He just barely managed to catch his breath before the Man surrounded by the Red aura flew to meet him with some more punches. Shit…I got to take this guy down. “Of Course…how come the guys with capes never stay around long enough to give me what I need. God men are terrible.” Campbell said looking at the 30 men ready to fight him. None of them had firearms or weapons of any kind but he was out numbered and out classed with that GMRF suit of armor. Well…this looks like the end. Hopefully Blue Star will eventually come back to save that girl. “Well boys…you can’t all have me so why don’t you form an orderly line and we can do this like speeddating M’kay?” The mercs didn’t look impressed. They started running towards him very disorganized. Campbell took out his knife. “Okay…I guess we are doing this the hard way” Campbell rushed towards them. Blue Star was actually having to amp himself up for this fight. He almost felt outclassed. This man was currently faster, stronger, his energy blasts hurt. They were fighting over the city at night, so the entire city could see. Police helicopters were beginning to get detached to investigate. I have to take this to orbit, no one can get hurt and I can let loose Blue Star began to fly higher but something grabbed his cape. “You know…there should probably be a movie about why superheroes shouldn’t have capes” The man said. He pulled Blue Star back down towards him level and threw him back down to the Earth. Blue Star couldn’t catch himself and crashed down into an intersection, making a crater 15 feet around him. He managed to get up in time to see the man monologue some more. “I am disappointed, granted this was all to beat Campbell but I expected more from you. I wasn’t even expecting you and I am destroying you” “Oh you haven’t seen anything yet.” Blue Star’s crash down a powerline nearby that landed right near him. He grabbed it and began absorbing the city’s power grid. He could slowly feel his power level increasing. He had to take this to orbit. He knew he couldn’t hold this level for long. He flew towards the Man and gave an incredibly fury of punches. Most of them landing straight to the man’s face, one of them causing a black eye and the last causing blood to be drawn. “It appears I have underestimated you Mr. Star…why don’t we take this somewhere private.” He said. The Man began to fly up towards orbit. Blue Star gave chase, eventually catching up. He grabbed on to the man’s underarms. “I think you could use a lift” He said. Blue Star began flying them faster and faster. Once they cleared the moon’s orbit he began moving at Faster than Light speeds. The man still in his grasp was merely allowing this joy ride to happen. However as the men approached the Kuiper belt around 10 seconds after they left, he became slowly less amused. He began a series of punches onto Blue Star’s face in an effort to get free, which staggered him, but he would not let go. Blue Star let go of the man and threw him towards a large Planet, around the size of Earth. What is this Eres? It’s pretty big. No it can’t be…too big Blue Star thought. The man landed on the surface hard, making a 5km crater around him. However Blue Star had gotten tired of the man’s survivability. He flew down at 99.9% Light speed towards the man. He readied his fist for a strike straight into the man’s chest. The man was just getting up and recovering from the throw, wiping the dust off his shoulder as he got up. Before he could even react, Blue Star’s punch hit him in the chest. The blow caused an explosion that destroyed the Planet underneath them, as well as the planets three moons. As, the explosion cleared Blue Star looked around. He was amped up enough to where his durability could almost ignore the blow. He looked at the stars. Low and behold, I ain’t in Kansas anymore. Blue Star saw two stars, one significantly larger than the other. He then realized that he was in the Alpha Centauri system. In a mere 45 seconds he flew from Earth to the Alpha Centauri system, seemingly defying physics. He looked around, he couldn’t see the man anywhere. As he began to turn, the man striked with his own attack, almost identical to Blue Star’s punch. The same explosion occured scattering debris from the planet everywhere. Blue Star however ignored it. He turned around and looked the man in the eye. There was no point in talking, they were in space, sound can’t travel in space. However his eyes glowed blue in rage. The man for the first time began to show fear. The fighting again broke out. Planet crushing after Planet crushing blow occurred. Blue Star continued to amp himself up, the man seemingly couldn’t as his punches phased Blue Star less and less. Eventually Blue Star punched the man close to the sun. The man was bloodied and bruised all over. He realized that Blue Star was going to win this fight. However he had one final trick up his sleeve. While the man couldn’t amp himself like Blue Star, he could absorb energy and transform it to his energy blasts. Being so close to the Star he began to absorb it. He didn’t need a lot, just enough to end Blue Star. He took the energy from Proxima Centauri and began to channel it into an energy beam. Blue Star curious to what he was doing just watched. I have this fight won there is noth… before Blue Star could finish his thought, the man shot his energy blast at Blue Star. It came out as a giant red Beam and began to hit Blue Star. Blue Star formed a barrier to try to protect him however some of the beam made it through. Blue Star was pushed back thousands of miles, Blue Star feeling the pain as if it was a car ramming him into a building. Eventually however, the beam stopped. The man relaxed. He was tired after exerting that much energy out of his body. As he relaxed Blue Star came flying towards him, Blue Star's costume torn but him very well alive. Blue Star grabbed him, and As he grabbed him Blue Star began flying in the same direction, this time bringing along a weakened man in red. They flew straight through Proxima Centauri and through the solar system, crashing through asteroids and micro-meteors. In 2 seconds flat they made it out of the Solar system. I can’t destroy the solar system. I don’t know what effects it will cause. When they left the solar system Blue Star maintained his grasp on the man. The amount of energy running through Blue Star was immense, his mitochondria seemingly producing the energy of a thousand nuclear reactors in each cell. Blue Star then let all of the energy go. In a body wide blast he let all of the excess energy go. A Blue energy pulse emitted for thousands of miles, exerting the energy of a supernova onto the area. The man was knocked out by this blast, near death. The man had little energy left in him, but enough to keep him alive. Blue Star found a piece of paper in the man’s shirt. He carved the words “Don’t Come back” into it and left it in his pocket, He did he began to fly home with several new battle scars but hoping that the message got through. Do NOT fuck with my family.

For Manni I've gone to the asylum, and in a speeddate we picked out a bunny for her as a life companion. On the speeddate the signs were positive-ish, the new guy was riding her and she'd allow it, and when she tried he'd gently make her unable to do so. However, the first few minutes here on her territory weren't great. After five minutes they'd start chasing and fighting, so I separated them to try again today on neutral grounds. First I tried the shower, and Manni, not being so stressed out from the car ride this time, was trying to mount the new guy. He didn't approve, and his immediate response was a bite, to which Manni panicked, and a scruffle ensued. I broke them up and reevaluated my strategies. Then I tried a few sessions in a tall box, but within a minute, Manni tried again and she'd get bitten. He, in turn, didn't try to ride Manni. I lightly shook and bumped the box to startle them apart and that worked, but after getting bitten another time Manni was just huddled into a scared ball while the new guy didn't really seem to care much. He even flopped in the box, i think as a mild insult, while Manni was still huddled up obviously scared and stressed. Their enclosures are close to each other, and when they're out their play-area is separated by a fence. When Manni approaches him towards the fence, she'll put her head down and slightly to the bars, but the new guy instantly goes for a bite. He pulled some fur from the top of her head and bit her (a bit later) in the butt. Manni now has several bumps on her skin at the places where she got bitten. All in all this doesn't seem like good signs to me at all. How do you guys see this? Are these common first hurdles, or is the initial match just not that great and should I perhaps reconsider another possible mate for her through the asylum? I know all bunnies can be bonded eventually, but I don't have the time to spend months doing this. The reason I got Manni a friend in the first place is because I've gotta do a lot out of the house soon and I want her to have company. It's just that the 'immediate biting' makes it really difficult for me, as they can't settle their differences on their own that way. The new bunny is also considerably bigger and I don't want Manni to get seriously hurt in this scruffle..

2014.05.12 16:47 evolvedantIs creating a subreddit for the sole purpose of advertising your personal website allowed?
I ask because I was trying to find a subreddit about speed dating, a community that would have allowed me to read up on peoples opinions, advice, etc. Naturally I went to speeddating However when I land there, it quickly becomes evident that this subreddit name was hijacked by someone for over 3 years who uses it solely to advertise his own personal website. He can delete any posts anyone places, so self post to complain, you risk having it deleted, and possibly banned. (No big loss, I know) The subreddit seems to have at least 6 new users on average hitting the page, realizing it isn't as expected, and leaving. It just seems like a shame, as clearly there seems to be a lot of interest. Sure someone could make a new subreddit called truespeeddating, but it sucks that all the high exposure from people randomly typing speeddating is wasted. Any other name will never get that kind of free exposure. This reminds me of cybersquatting. Is this kind of behavior really allowed? Is there anything we could do to regain control and turn it into something that isn't basically free advertisement at the expense of Reddit and its users?
2014.02.22 01:24 Fjolletosset[Serious] Teenagers I need your help! What is the funniest event you've been attending?
Hello! I am creating an event for teenagers in my area. And therefore I wanted to ask, what is the most fun event you been at and why? Were you playing a fun game? Did you meet a lot of new people and how? It can be anything from a school event to a birthday party! Edit: If you are interested in knowing why I ask. It is going to be in the local cinema where we would watch a movie first, and then there would be some kind of event afterwards. I'm thinking speeddating, limbo, ''create you favorite famous person out of weird materials''-competitions and quizzes. Anything sounds cool, or just super outdated?
2014.02.22 01:13 FjolletossetBranding a cinema to young people (16-19) by creating events?
Hello! I have no experience in marketing or branding what so ever. It's something I want to study, but currently I am volunteering in the small cinema in town where I live. I am in charge of presenting a possible event, held for youngsters, next thursday. We are a non-profit orginasation and therefore we don't have a lot to offer. However though we have a cinema with new movies to reasonable prices(cheap compared to the bigger cities). Even though it is a small town there are some schools around here with teenagers. They are always telling me that nothing ever happens here. So that's what I am trying to change. My idea is to have a somewhat 'secret' club after each movie showing every thursday. This will happen on the 1st floor of the cinema. Since the cinema is called 'Helios', like the sun god, I thought it would be funny if everyone had to bring sunglasses to these events. Other than that there should be a ritual(i'm thinking a silly dance) everytime there is a new member(but I'm thinking everyone has to do it). We will also be able to open the bar and offer beer and soda. Other than that I was thinking we could create small competitions/games like speeddating, limbo etc. My question is: am I missing something? I am asking to this particulary event because, I will go out to the schools and talk to them. But is there something marketing related I didnt see? Like.. do I need a surprise? Entertainment? I am a 20 year old female, so I hope to blend in with all the visitors so it doesnt seem like a boring event, forced by adults. I really really hope you can help me. Please come with anything, and thanks for reading all this text! Please feel free to ask anything. As I said I'm a super newbie. Edit: Sorry about my grammar:)
2014.01.28 13:01 Proclaim_the_Name23M. I just want to offer a little advice and share some success with the rest of you guys here.
Hey guys. For all the dudes on here who can relate to me, those who are perhaps a little quiet and shy, afraid to talk to girls and get dates, those of us who think we might alone for the rest of our lives, I just want to share a bit of my success and offer a little encouragement and motivation. I am a 23 M, virgin, and up until recently have never had a girlfriend. My first relationship type of experience with a girl happened when I was 18. This girl was someone I knew a few years beforehand from a class in high school, and met her again at community college. I would see her and her sister walking all the time to classes and we would end up talking between classes. I can't recall ever really going out on a "date" with her. Though we did hang out, sometimes with her family or mine and we did a lot of talking over Facebook. We confessed to each other that we liked each other, but we never once held hands, or kissed or anything past a hug. In short, we were both naive and didn't understand relationships. I knew it wasn't going anywhere after about half a year and felt heartbroken and confused at the end of it. This was the start of my dating career and it didn't seem like a very good one. Though, as is my motto: "getting started is the hardest part". Fast forward to being 20 years old, and I enter into the sketchy world of internet dating. Out of curiosity and a desire to end loneliness, I find my way to speeddate.com and create a profile. After many attempts to contact females, I wound up messaging a girl that lived 30 miles from me. We exchanged phone numbers and texted for hours. I told her we should meet and she agreed. Oh boy, my first internet date! I drove to her house and was greeted by her dad, who seemed less than happy. Apparently, she did not tell dad that she was internet dating and told him that she was going to go shopping with a friend. Somehow, he let her leave with me anyway. Gentlemen, this girl was hot. It seemed we were having a nice time talking at the restaurant we went to, but the date was cut short by some excuse she had. After that date, I never heard from her again. From speeddate.com, I moved to match.com. I paid $70 for a 3 month membership, and ended up with one "date" from that website. This date however involved the girl's friend as well, because she felt insecure about meeting a stranger. Fair enough, I thought. That day, I met the two of them and had a fun time chatting it up. She then invited me to her church group meetup and I went to that. I went to the church group only to realize that she wasn't coming. So, I was stood up. After that, I never saw her again. From match.com I moved to Okcupid.com, the best of these dating sites in my opinion. After many, many internet conversations with girls, I found one who went out with me. I must have solicited myself to over a hundred different girls, and looked through countless profiles. This girl was athletic and became more of a hiking buddy than a date. We met on three different days to hike, and I took her out on one real day to have dinner and a movie. The relationship did not escalate to anything and after the dinner date, I never heard from her again. So, what do we have to learn from these dates? What was going wrong? Why wasn't anything escalating and moving along? In large, I knew it was my fears that were holding me back. It was my fears that were keeping me from expressing any confidence and progressing the relationships. I was afraid that I was going to creep them out, or I was going to go too fast. I was waiting for signs and signals. I was hoping they were going to make the first moves. All of these were mistakes on my part. Something needed to change. And things started to turn around when I decided to ask a girl out from work. I had been working at this department store for a little over a year when she showed up, but it wasn't until another year later that we went on our first date. Before then, I wasn't really interested in her. A few months ago, last year, my coworkers were telling me I should ask her out. I wasn't too sure, but then a couple nights we were scheduled to work together, alone in the stockroom. So, we ended up talking for hours at work. A lot of the talking was about superheroes, movies, shows, entertainment. I started really liking her and looking forward to seeing her at work. And then one day when we were talking again, we were talking about an upcoming movie we both wanted to see and I asked her if she would like to see it with me, and she agreed! After work, I drove her home, because she was dropped off and got her cell phone number. On our first date, we saw "Gravity". We paid separately and I knew that was a dumb mistake on my part, but I paid for her meal after we watched the movie. After that first date, we started texting each other and going out on more dates. I've taken her to the shooting range, a comedy show, she got us tickets to an LA King's game, we went to the Griffith observatory, and recently we went whale watching. It wasn't until our third date that I held hands with her, and not until our sixth date that we first kissed! She has not had a boyfriend before, so I think this has helped my case. She has been patient with me. I've been crossing new thresholds since I've been with her, and it's been easier to do along the way. I've realized that my fears of uncertainty were only holding me back, and that she has wanted to do the things I've wanted to do as much as I have wanted. You just have to do it. All your doubts are just in your mind, and the best way to rid your fears is to face them head on. That first time holding hands, you just have to grab hers as you walk together. That first kiss, you just have to hold her, lean in and go for it. As men, it's our job to be initiators and the go-getters. The hardest part is getting started, but it does get easier. The fears, uncertainties and doubts become fewer as you cross those barriers. You might have to fake the confidence at first, but as you move along, the confidence becomes real. This is your life, and if you want something, you have to go and get it. I'm still learning. I still have thresholds to cross and fears to destroy, but my experience has taught me that they can be conquered and I can make my thoughts into reality. I just have to get up, go out, speak my mind, and express what I want. And when I fail, I'll try again with confidence. I hope this story about myself can relate to some of you guys out there. If I can do it, you can too.
2013.08.12 04:09 TokenMcGetStonedMy gf had her picture stolen for a dating site.
My girlfriend decided to Google her Twitter screen name, and found it on a dating website (speeddate.com), and when she clicked on it, she found that they were using her picture and city as a form of advertising to get new members to join the site. She searched for the profile, but it did not exist. Does she have the grounds to take any legal action against the site? She is in the process of freaking out and feels violated for that. Any help would be appreciated.
2012.09.01 16:01 ITpredatorI messed up first day of college and I don't know how to fix it
Friday I met my new classmates in a introduction day. I'm in a class of 25 students with most of the class being female. We introduced ourselves in a speeddating way and then we were split into groups of 2. Each group were send out to do a group activity. Our group activity was soccer against another group(multiple classes participated). I was pretty quiet for the most part and had a headache which most of the group knew about. Afterwards the whole class got together, we ate and people started leaving. This is where everything started going south. The females in group were leaving in small groups of 2-3. Two female classmates invited me to go with them to take the bus to the trainstation since I told them earlier that I lived far and I agreed and told everyone goodbye. Big mistake, After we left to walk to the busstop, I basically had nothing to say to them, I wasn't interested in them for more then friends and the headache was still present. When we arrived at the busstop things went worse as we met with 6 other females of the class and they wanted to have small talk with each other. Had nothing to say to them and they had nothing to say to me. It got even more weird, when the bus arrived, I took a seat with the 8 of them and basically tagged along saying nothing and just taking a spot. A few of them left the bus and when we reached the busstation, only 4 were left and none of them acknowledged me and said bye to each other without saying anything to me. That's how the day ended for me and I wish that was my only problem. I don't remember any of my classmate names or what they told me during the speeddate and I can't remember most of the female classmates faces. I was thinking of solutions and this is what I came with: - Apoligize to the whole class in the first class(by pausing the class by telling the teacher beforehand) next monday for acting weird and blame it on sickness and lack a sleep. How do I ask them for their names? Every one of them knew my name during soccer and I knew only a few of them in soccer(which I already forgot) Any advice for me? Do I have the right solution? And I seriously don't know why I can't remember their names.
