TW: Manipulation, trauma, toxic relationships, drug use, drug addiction, s!x trafficking.
Maggie (24F), has beef with Anita (22F). Basically, Anita has an off & on again boyfriend Liam (24M) that she has been with for 3 years. Anita has untreated PTSD/BPD & thus her relationship with Liam has become rocky because of her deterioration in her mental health. She decides to take Xanax to treat her “Bipolar Disorder” (she doesn’t know she has BPD), as she doesn’t trust medical professionals & wants to take control of her health (As a teen, she was misdiagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, being given medicine that put her in an almost zombie like state). She ends up becoming dependent on the drug, which Liam finds out. They have a fight which results in them once again breaking up after she escapes the rehab he brought her to.
Anita had been “friends” with her dealer, so he offers to let him stay at his trap house where she meets Maggie. Maggie finds out that Anita used to be a stripper, in which she starts to respect her less & treats her very rudely because of it. Liam had been calling Anita non-stop trying to find out where she is, which aggravates Maggie to no end because of how annoying she finds them. She eventually calls Anita a slut, & demands her phone trying to break it. Anita yanks her phone away, in which Maggie punches her in the face. They end up fighting, with Maggie losing. She has a really busted & beat down face afterwards. You’ll see why this is important.
She manages to memorize Liam’s number after seeing him call Anita again, while Anita is asleep. She contacts him herself & proceeds to lie Liam about Anita’s behavior. She claims Anita had attacked her, showing her face after & manipulated Liam by saying things like this when he wouldn’t reciprocate with her flirting with him:
L: “Ugh,” he seemed lightly confused... “Nah…Sorry sweetheart, I know Anita wouldn’t like that…She’ll come back on her own eventually…Like usual...”
M: “No she won’t. She’s been snorting Xanax up nonstop. You really think she’d choose you? She’s traded you for pills. What’s the problem if you indulge yourself? She never even mentions your name. If you don’t mind me asking?…”
Later on they meet up, with Liam becoming angry with Maggie as she proceeds to manipulate him further by claiming Anita doesn’t love him & cares about feeding her addiction. He kicks her out, though he invites her back because her words got to him & he wants an out. They have sex after getting high together, though all of what Maggie said was false. After the fact, Liam gets guilty & refuses to even kiss her as he claims it’s more romantic. He expresses that he feels regretful because he still loves Anita & would always tell her the truth which Maggie gets mad about.
She decides to bring him to the trap house to see Anita, who is in an awful state. Liam becomes worried & takes Anita home, taking care of her as much as possible before taking her to a hospital. He helps her recover; he tells Maggie that he thinks they should never have sex again.
Ultimately, while at first Maggie’s motivations was to get back at Anita for beating her up, she begins to resent & hate her out of jealousy because of the love & care Liam has for her despite her struggles, something Maggie never had. So by lying & sleeping with him, she felt like she was helping herself get what she deserved more than Anita, hoping to take her place as Liam’s girlfriend.
Anita then reveals to Liam she was coerced into using more of the Xanax by Hayden, who was her dealer. He pretended to be her friend & convinced her to start stripping again to get back on her feet with more money. He convinces her that the Xanax is good for her mental health all around being as manipulative as possible to make her believe they were friends so she would buy more Xanax. He would then convince her to try more drugs to help her with stripping because of how depressed the job was making her. He did eventually plan to make her addiction worse & worse until he could pimp her out by holding drugs over her head.
Liam out of shame & guilt tells her all about what happened with Maggie, apologizing constantly for being manipulated by her. They make up, though with Anita moving back in with him they don’t get back together for a while. Maggie becomes angrier knowing that Anita was given more support by Liam, despite her efforts to ruin her relationship. She does now, in the present realize her wrongs & has recovered from her own drug addiction & is still working to be a good person.

The Approach Breakthrough Challenge is a 2-day live online intensive where we show you how to effortlessly approach women and create a connection with them using my Natural Approach System.
This isn’t just an online presentation, you’ll actually be going out in public to apply the material.
Best of all, you won’t need to act like someone you’re not or use gimmicky tactics that make you look like a tool.
The Natural Approach System gives you everything you need to look like a natural with women, it’s as simple as that.
This is the most effective way to get a girl’s number and get her interested in you.
If you want to get intimate with a girl you have to get to know her…
And if you want to get to know her it starts with getting her number..
The only way to do that in the real world is by approaching her.
Here is a fact: The hottest girls in your city have left dating apps behind.
Why? because they’re constantly getting harassed… and they already have a lot of options anyways…
This is why you need to focus on meeting girls in real life, they’re everywhere in your city and you never know when you’re going to see them…
But more than likely you’ve been sold the myth that being able to walk up to a woman and talk to her is extremely difficult.
Most dating coaches tell you that you need to reinvent yourself, they tell you…
  • Solve your childhood trauma…
  • ​Meditate for hours and don’t touch your you know what…
  • ​Become an alpha by spending years in the gym…
  • ​Create some sort of celebrity social circle and spend your life in the club…
What a load of BS.
There’s a better way, and that better way is the Natural Approach System.

2023.06.10 10:36 OperationOk5544 I think my bf doesn't love me anymore

Me(26) and my bf(50) have been together for a year now. I live in his house with him and his 7 year old son. The initial stages of dating were ready fun where I would drive 10kms every other day to go and meet him in his apartment. He has never visited me once in those days even when I broke my leg. He wasn't interested in visiting to see me.
He was still on grindr while we were officially dating. I asked him to uninstall the app because it made me feel really insecure. He defended it by saying that it's just like porn for him. Being on grindr titillates him and he won't do anything. I didn't buy that. I knew his intentions were not right. I made a fake profile and started chatting with him just to find out he wanted to hookup with the fake profile in under 10 minutes of chatting. I lost it and confronted him. He said he didn't know why he did it. I gave him another chance and got off tinder. Now that thing has created major trust issues in me. rance.
We started living together after a few months. I was still paying rent and all of my expenses. He started showing me less affection day after day even though I told him how it made me feel.
Fast forward a few months, we went on a vacation with two other friends where I lost my phone. I asked him for his phone to do some work and couldn't help but check his ig messages. There was this one guy he texted that he wanted to visit his city and love to meet with 😈 this emoji.
I confronted him again where he made it seems like an issue with me. Just chatting doesn't mean he will actually do it and he didn't even mean sex by that emoji. It was me who was misinterpreting and overthinking everything.
During all these times he has done nothing to make me feel wanted to special or any kind of reassurance. Imagine being in a house where the child is being love bombed by his dad 24/7 while the boyfriend gets no attention. The contrast really drives me crazy. To this he says there's a lot of things going on in his mind. That's why he is not being able to show affection to me.
A lot of things happened where we would fight again and again with no results.
Today he says he is not sure about the relationship because 25% of his mind still wants to hookup with new people and 75% of it wants to be in the relationship. He has taken me for granted and left me at his disposal.
I have done nothing but be the nicest boyfriend I could ever be but I feel used. His networth is easily 200 times of what mine is but it always has to be me to take him on dates or vacation or buy him gifts. My sex life has degraded to a point where we hardly fuck once a week.
He will ask for more and more time again and again for him to feel a certain way towards me and I think he is just trying to play with me.
I am so confused what to do? Am I being played and taken for granted here?

2023.06.10 10:36 RedPerspective1797 Ok, I feel like this needs to be said (regarding survival)

Reached ascendant for the first time tonight - without much difficulty. Didn't fail a single promotional series which was cool and unexpected cause I never saw myself as capable.
That being said, I felt like I was losing my hair dealing with teammates burning lives in survival unnecessarily. If you are up on lives, stop pushing the enemy team. It was astonishing to me just how many players at (apparently) my skill level didn't seem to understand this.
Survival is very elementary. As soon as you are up on lives, it is on the enemy team to engage you. You are in the position of power as the onus is now on them to put themselves in a compromising, desperate position in an effort to capture the lead.
Remember, there are no morals in comp. People run the cheesiest, most broken shit and will do anything to win. So swallow your pride and play like a bitch if you have to - camp your ass off, run around the map and make the enemy chase you. I don't care if you are "top fragging" dropping 15 defeats if you also die 12 times because you keep peaking sniper lanes (yes this did happen, and we lost. Meanwhile I died 4 times in 5 rounds.) I can only imagine now that same player here on reddit coming to the forum and complaining that they "always have to carry and Bungie gives me the worst team-mates". Ya.. ok mate.
Anyway, let this be a refresher for those who need to know. Good luck out there.

2023.06.10 10:35 PrestigiousBit5842 real time gpu streaming

in the new whitepaper, the author explained the gpu streaing technology.
" Art produced on the Render Network can be streamed using the X.IO GPU application streaming framework, enabling the distribution, consumption, and monetization of ultra high resolution media directly in-browser with no downloads or hardware dependencies. The technology for GPU streaming is available at, and GPU streaming applications running on decentralized Render Network nodes are in development to meet user needs for scalable 3D applications, services, and experiences that can be monetized on a pay-as-you-go basis using RNDR. "

i'm not an expert in the field and while i have an idea of how this might work i'm not to sure about it, hoping you could clarify it for me.
i'll make an high level example of my understanding of this:
game/media/art/ ai model provide imput - sent to render network- computation processed -- send result
all in real time like a renderization done by your gpu computer would do when playing a videogame?

2023.06.10 10:35 Josephine_Montilyet Good change of pace from UBI open worlds

I first thought I'd buy Stray, yet it seems like not a good idea for me personally. So, I realised I wanted to buy a new game so that I could just feel excited about something as I've become pretty bored.
I can say I play kind of the same type of game, Assassin's Creed games (newer ones more), Horizon Zero Dawn/Forbidden West, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-man, Watch Dogs, etc. I also can't bring myself to play Witcher 3 (yet I feel it is not a completely UBI style open world). I also feel overwhelmed by No Man's Sky.
I think that at some point these games become overwhelming and I don't know how not to concentrare on useless collectibles.
I can say some games that still feel very much interesting for me would be Mass Effect (though I'm taking a breack form it rn), Kingdom Come Deliverance (very unique in my eyes), Skyrim (I play it sporadically) and Jedi Fallen Order (I just hop back into it whenever).
I have recently realised I don't feel as excited to play anymore, yet I bought a Ps5 a few months ago, so I would really like to use it.
What are your recommendations (with a bit of an explanation if possible) for some good games that could bring a change of pace. They need to be worth the money (I realised Stray wouldn't be).

2023.06.10 10:35 Mr_ZateZate Tip and Rant (Montrose bars & others)

I'm pretty sure everyone will agree with, but hey if ya don't that's great too.
If anyone wants great service at any bar, make sure that you tip your bartenders well. They will make an effort in remember your face and your drink order if you take care of them. They'll take care of you as best as they can.
Ma'am, you can complain all you'd like with your friend about how you weren't getting the noticed immediately when you were using your sweet high pitch voice. I've been taking care of my bartender while he's been taking care of me. The reason he didn't noticed you is because he knows that you don't tip well. 🤦‍♂️
Thank you again Brandon for taking care of me. I'll continue in taking care of you 🤙

2023.06.10 10:35 Owlbear27 So I rewatched the first Spider-man and wow…everyone is awful

I had a blast rewatching this cinematic masterpiece again for the first time in a few years, but I didn’t realize how much of an asshole everyone is to eachother. Harry Osbourne: he asks out the girl he knows Peter loves right in front of him while using the facts that Peter gives him and then parades her around in front of him for the rest of the movie
Peter: pretty obvious, but he gets his uncle killed and then commits manslaughter by causing the killer to fall out the window. Secondly, what’s the deal with his webs? Do the just stick permanently to skyscrapers when he’s done swinging? He’s a menace! He stalks Harry’s girlfriend throughout the whole movie and kisses her while in costume. Let’s not forget when Goblin dropped her and the trolley full of children, he was fully willing to let the children die if it meant he could catch MJ first. He beats an old lady with a stick for a cranberry sauce!
Then there’s MJ. She breaks off the engagement with Flash Thompson at his graduation, she makes out with a masked vigilante while she has a boyfriend, and then she makes out with her boyfriend’s best friend while at her boyfriend’s father’s funeral and tries to dump him for said best friend
The only good person in this story is J Jonah Jameson, because even under the threat of death, he refused to give up his employee’s name despite the fact that said employee was in the same room as him
Anyway, the movie’s great, absolutely loved how campy it was, just laughed when I thought about how toxic the main trio’s relationship with each other was

Over the period of the 30 days it got 1 million views and the copyright claim has disappeared. So my question is, how long until i get the revenue collected during them 30 days?

2023.06.10 10:35 ght007 Non-existence of God proven a priori through contradictions in the notion of God itself

I highly recommend reading this essay. I discussed a lot with the author about it and mostly support his ideas. It is in German so I will paraphrase it, not all too well I must say, and would be looking for responses and problems with it from both theists and atheists.
Here is my rundown of the essay in English (I highly recommend you read Chapter 4 yourself by using DeepL translator.)
4.1 Philosophical refutation of God God is, a priori, presented as a personal being. Man was made in his image, therefore we share something. A consciousness. An inferior consciousness, however. At the same time, multiple passages from the Bible lead to God being presented as impersonal and incorporeal. [I]n the same manner as we ought not to imagine, even supposing him corporeal, that he is clothed with a human body […]; so, neither ought we to imagine that the spirit of God has human ideas, or bears any resemblance to our spirit […]. We ought rather to believe, that as he comprehends the perfections of matter without being material…. [Humes Auslassung] he comprehends also the perfections of created spirit without being spirit, in the manner we conceive spirit […] (Hume 2009: 22; pt. 2).
4.2 In addition, god is presented as understandable. Mysterious. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the lord, but as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." (Jessaja 55: 8,9) This complete mysteriousness actually supports practical atheism. However, God is, in contradictory fashion once more, Yet God partial understanding of God is required and presumed in the Bible, which is a clear contradiction.
4.3 In regards to how God can be seen in nature, complete lack of it supports atheism (and can be proven), but even partial integration of God into nature poses following problem: In view of a particularly beautiful landscape one praises for instance the divinity of nature (cf. Psalm 104: 24); in the face of terror one calls the world lacking of God, which degrades it to a mere preliminary stage to eternal life. A consistent overall picture does not emerge. Leibniz argues that complete integration of God must be presupposed leading to the conclusion that we live in a perfect world because otherwisw God could have done better, which contradicts his omnipotence. I personally dont believe we live in a perfect world.
4.4 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (cf. John 3:16) This central verse of the Bible emphasizes God's involvement in worldly and especially human events. Accordingly, God cares about people and rejoices over every individual who turns from the path of sin. Yet it does not always have to be a loving God who is emotionally involved (this one is a Christian specialty): "[...] For I the Lord [Yahweh] your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation [...]" (Deut. 5: 9). In any case, God is in the middle of world events. At the same time, the image of God includes sublimity. God stands, metaphorically speaking, above things and sees the creature in the world suffering, but looks down on it from a higher vantage point and does not suffer the same sufferings. This would also be a sign of imperfection and worldliness. However, it is the case that God is drawn into worldly affairs through His compassion. Thus, a contradiction arises between a close, interested, involved, but thus also limited in his greatness Godon the one hand and a distant, superior, outside God.
Id love a counter argument to any one of the 4 "proofs" (i use quotation marks bc i am unsure of their validity) that god doesnt exist.

Has anyone used them before? How is their quality of work and after sales support?
The price seems to very cheap which leads me to suspect that either they are cutting corners on workmanship or choosing sub-par components. Hence asking this question for fellow Pakistanis.

2023.06.10 10:35 CatloafHere Guys i paid the ultimate sacrifice for my gf

Ik having a relationship with a woman is frowned upon by redditors but i never understood why until now.
So back to square one, ive got a gf right cute, funny, good taste in media, etc… Occasionally we get to having some fun right, and being real i havent had a relationship before this where i had that. That all goes to say, im trying to do her right and figure shit out.
So she’s shaven up and down right. When i went down on her i was thinking “damn what happens when she give me head, like is she finna get a bunch of pubes in her teeth?”. So i made the decision to shave my nuts… my god what a mistake.
SECOND, grabbing my dick, even to piss feels like im stroking a hairless cat. I fucking hate it, its like flappy tits with a 5 o clock shadow.
THIRD and worst of all. I knick my gnads when shaving, I CUT MY TESTICLES. It might be the scariest thing ive ever done to myself, i thought my nut juice was gonna start pouring out onto the shower floor like a popped water balloon. I also nicked above my dick, which is equally bad as a bleeding pimple between the eyes.
TLDR; I wanted to shave for my gf and dont like how it looks+i nicked my c/b

2023.06.10 10:34 themacabremachine Scared about being overwhelmed at dropping out at the school I really want to go to

I’ve never had any good experiences with school, luckily I was never bullied, but I found it confusing and always so overwhelming, either from being understimulated in glass, or from feeling overworked by having just a tiny bit of homework. For the past year I’ve gone to a special school for people with disabilities, designed as a place to relax as you research other opportunities and schools, but here’s the thing, I always know what school I want to go to. I’ve been wanting to attend this school for ages now, the education takes 3 years and it’s INSANELY EXPENSIVE, I know it’s going to be worth it, since it’s pretty much the best of the best when it comes to the field that this school teaches in, but, I’m so terribly scared of being overworked and dropping out. I seriously don’t want to drop out from being overwhelmed, especially considering how expensive it is, the fear of being overworked and potentially burning out is always lingering in the back of my head when I consider applying.
I don’t know what to do or how to calm these fears.
Anyone else struggle with the same or have similar experiences?

2023.06.10 10:34 shortcurrytruecel Being Indian is Brutal

I remember thinking before that being Indian was a huge disadvantage in trying to date and relationships. Normally I keep this a secret, and my unhappiness in regards to dating and relationships is something that I keep secret. I remember I disclosed that I think being Indian was probably the cause of this (I was really high and I was just talking. I just kind of said this without realizing that this is something that is supposed to be a secret). He seemed really surprised that I thought this and asked me, "You think this is because you're Indian??" But he said it in an extremely condescending tone and in a way where it sounded like it was the dumbest thing he's ever heard in his life.
Up to this point, the idea that my struggles was caused by me being Indian was speculation. But now, with how often I see those videos where someone asks, "What race would you not date?" I always see the overwhelming majority respond with Indian with no hesitation. Now I know I was right all along about being Indian is a major contributing factor.
This is conflicting though. On one hand, it feels good to finally know for sure with proof (or about as close to it as you can get) that my experiences are real, and that the people who are telling me that I was wrong (about being Indian being a gigantic disadvantage) were just trying to gaslight me.
But on the other hand, I kind of wish I was wrong and that I was on equal footing with white men. I wish I wasn't at such a disadvantage. I wish this was all in my head, and that I could change everything by just changing the way I look at the world.

2023.06.10 10:34 NecessaryDisastrous Late to the party : destroying old legendary items

Hello everyone,
I came back on an old character and wanted to get rid of their -very- old legendary weapons (we're speaking items before the new legendary system). I searched on the wiki how to destroy my old weapons and get back some things but the "appraise item" button isn't available on my game. Is it too late ?

2023.06.10 10:33 SontaranGaming Uranus, Im, and Devil Fruits (Spoilers for Ch1086)

So, with Ch186, we're finally starting to get some in-comic discussion on Imu, as well as a few bits about what they did to Lulusia. I think I have a bit of an idea about who they are, though, and where they fit into the grand scheme of things.
So, to start things off, of course, I'm fairly certain the weapon they used was Uranus. The Mother Flame is likely the fuel source Vegapunk was working on, sold to them by York in exchange for celestial dragon status. But that doesn't tell us what Uranus is, just what it can do. So, to figure out what exactly Uranus would be, I think it's best to start by looking at the other weapons in its trio. The two theories I've seen most often are that Imu is Uranus, or that Uranus is a physical weapon Imu has. I don't think either are true, because those would be too similar to Pluton, a literal weapon, and Poseidon, a person. Given Oda's general preference towards matching sets, it would follow the third weapon is neither of those things. Given that, I think it's most likely that Uranus is spiritual.
To explain what I mean further, One Piece as a narrative heavily centers the human spirit. Even Vegapunk said he believed that devil fruits were the manifestations of sheer human willpower. Haki, similarly, is all about manifesting your sheer willpower into superhuman abilities. Uranus would operate along similar lines. What exactly that entails is still too vague to really speculate on heavily, but I am fairly confident it won't be as simple as the weapon being Im as a person, or a physical device they have access to.
What I will say, however, is that I think there's a solid chance Im may not strictly be a person. Ivankov speculated that they may have been the recipient of the Eternal Youth Surgery, but I don't necessarily think that's true. Doflamingo specifically called attention to the personality swap part of the Ope Ope no Mi as being the key to Mary Geoise's treasure, more than the eternal youth surgery. I think that's the reason Im has lived for this long: it's not just that they're immortal, it's that their spirit is immortal and keeps taking on new hosts.
Now for where devil fruits come in. What we know about them is that they're rumored to contain spirits within them (as mentioned by Jabra), they reincarnate when their previous user dies, and as Vegapunk said, "each fruit embodies a different wish someone had for our evolution... a totally alien reality born from boundless imagination." My theory is, they literally contain concentrated human will within them. That concentrated will forms the "devil" of the fruit, effectively immortalizing the provider of that will.
If that's how the devil fruits work, that means Im would effectively be a devil, but instead of possessing fruits, they possess people. And similar to how devil fruits seem to manifest themselves in particular types of fruit based on their type, Im would manifest themself in a select set of person: the Celestial Dragons. That's why they wanted all the Dragons to be gathered together in their home. They're all descendants of the Gods, but when Im is the god in question, they're also possible candidates for Im to take over in the future, should something happen to their current body.
With all of this in mind, Uranus would be something tied to their particular existence. It could be a particularly powerful devil fruit, such as a counterpart to Luffy's Nika fruit, and an ocean or moon god. But it could also be something entirely different, a particular ability they gained during the void century that coincides with their pseudo-immortality.
