2022.01.18 15:52 Minute-Grand-811 My bf's dad tried to set him up with his girlfriend's daughter right after I found out he cheated on me
My now ex struggles with SA. During the time that he (m25) and I (f22) came to terms with that and were trying to work to stay together, my bf's dad had started seriously dating a woman he had moved in with right after he was released from prison and the woman's daughter (lets call her B) came into the picture very quickly. B started calling my bf's father by "dad" and referring to my bf as "brother" before she even met either of them. But B added and messaged my bf on pretty much every platform. It weirded me out, not only because of that, but B spam liked all of his old photos besides ones I was tagged in. B added little 💖's to messages and messaged him repeatedly if he didn't respond. And I'm not the type to force my bf to do anything so I just told him that it made me uncomfortable and left it at that. It was semi-acknowledged but I felt like he chalked it up to insecurities rather than the definite red flags that were happening and his mom backed him up.
Well he has a habit of lying to my face and then confessing a week later. He eventually told me that B messaged him right after he got off a call with his dad just to tell him that his voice sounded nice. And I blew up at that point and messaged B from his account first pretending to be him not wanting to talk to her, and then full on exploding at her as myself when it didn't go how I wanted. And thus began the shit talk from his family about me...
I had broken up with him in that moment. And he wanted to be closer with his family because let's be honest I'm great. But he went to dinner that same freaking night to his dad's where B was there too- still not acknowledging that B had crossed a line even though he felt the need to hide it from me. And it was very hard for me but I encouraged him to go, hoping he would decide for himself that it was a terrible idea. Well, he went, and a few days ago he decided to confess that the same night, B sent him a nude. And somewhere in the timeline, my bf's friend told him that his dad was full on encouraging the sexual relationship and I'm sure that's where B got the idea from.

2022.01.18 15:52 first_jewish_lawyer Why is this simple question so hard?? (Max + Column)
2022.01.18 15:52 Dostories I really don't like snow anymore
I used to love snow, especially the fresh heavy snow on a quite night. I live in a small town in the Midwest near the border of Canada. I grew up in Alaska, I’m used to snow, darkness and extreme temperatures. But not anymore.
Last year I moved for work. It’s a normal office clerical work. Boring but it pays the bills. I bought a small house two bed, one and a half bath. It’s just me and my cat Coal. I’ve tried dating but its difficult. More so now than before, so the small space works.
A few weeks ago when the news of the blizzard was reported a few of us in my neighborhood watch (NHW) went around to make sure people had supplies and were prepared. I already had a small generator, bottled water, small space heater, easy to cook meals, a small camping stove, and an extra bag of cat food and some other cold weather supplies.
The NHW had a small collection for things like getting our street plowed and some small emergencies like this. You didn’t have to pay into it but it was appreciated.
Small packs were created and distributed along the street. We have about fifteen houses along my road so each house got a couple of survival glow sticks, some candles, dried food and a few bottles of water, and some cheap short range walkie talkies.
I came home from work on a Monday and the snow had already started falling pretty heavily. I checked to make sure my generator was working and hooked up and that I had spare fuel. I made sure rechargeable batters were plugged in and got myself some mac and cheese for dinner.
As I was eating the wind started picking up and I had to turn the volume up on my tv to hear the movie I was watching. I checked my clock and saw that it was already late into the evening, but it had been dark for hours already. I checked my phone and had a text from my boss telling the office not to worry about going into work till things had settled down.
I looked outside and all I saw past my window was flashes of white from the light hitting snow. It was darker than I had ever seen anything before. I called out for Coal to get some dinner but he didn’t come running like he usually did. I checked under my bed and sure enough he was huddle in a corner. I figured the blizzard was really freaking him out. I put his food down and went to shower.
As I was waiting for the water to heat up I turned on the walkie talkie and radioed out “Hey everyone its 9’oclock, just checking in to see if everyone is good” each house on the street had a number one through fifteen. I waited to hear each number call in with a quick “all good” or some other affirmation of safety. I was most worried about number ten Mrs. Bellcoat, the little old widow. After a minute a shaky “oh yes is it working? Hello? Hello? I’m doing fine”.
The remaining houses called in with positive messages. I took a quick shower and then sat on my couch reading a bit while listening to the raging snow, at some point though I fell asleep.
I snapped awake with the clinking of snow and ice hitting my living room window. Through bleary eyes I saw the glow of yellow headlights flash across my window. I rubbed my eyes and saw it was only 3am. My power was still on thankfully but the wind was cutting through chilling the house. I grabbed some extra blankets from my closet and tossed them on my bed.
I pulled my space heater into my room and turned it on low Coal had eaten his food and crawled back under the bed but came out wearily at the sound of the space heater. Coal hopped onto the foot of the bed facing the heater and I crawled into bed ready to get some sleep.
The “clinking” sound of the snow battering my window was making it very difficult to fall asleep now. And the thumping of the wind and snow hitting the side of the house would startle me right before I’d drift off. Eventually I did end up falling asleep but it was restless.
I groggily woke up and rubbed the sleep from my eyes. My room was moderately warm from the heater. And Coal was curled up soaking up the heat. I went to the bathroom put some food in Coals’ bowl and threw a toaster in the oven. I thought irritatedly my body is so used to waking up for work I cant even sleep in during a storm the sun is still rising.
I sighed and turned on the tv to put background noise on while I ate. I put some peanut butter on my bagel and pulled out my phone out. I froze with my bagel midway to my mouth as I noticed the time. It was 11am. But there was barely any light outside. Even during white out blizzards its never so dusky out.
I grabbed the walkie and radioed out “hey this 8 uhh, is it kinda dark outside anyone else’s house?” After a few moments the radio crackled and “this is 3 not just you. It looks like the sun just set over the horizon, whys it so dark? Is the cloud cover that bad?” every house radioed back to confirm.
It was oddly dark out. Every house except 10. “Mrs. Bellcoat are you there?” each house called out but no reply. I stared at the walkie willing her to say something. “Hello sorry for the fuss I’m ok, it was just so dark out I kept sleeping then when I heard you all chirping on this thing I had to find my glasses to operate it. I let out a sigh and thanked her for reporting in. I reminded everyone to call in if anyone needed anything otherwise I would radio again at the scheduled time this evening.
Something about being locked up all day during a blizzard makes the day even more boring than usual. The constant wind and white out made a constant dull background noise. That could lul you to sleep. That first day though, it never got brighter. It looked like it was sunset levels of darkness all day long, though the days aren’t all that long it was still very unnerving. The Internet had gone out around 1pm unsurprisingly. So I watched a couple of movies and played with Coal.
By 3pm it was dark again. Outside was just blackness with occasional flashes of white. As snow whipped past the window. Around 4pm I started cooking myself some dinner while I still had electricity, fearing it would go out I figured an easy quick meal would be best. I cooked up two boxes of macaroni. Something that can be eaten cold if necessary.
Then the crackle of the radio buzzed and Mrs. Bellcoat’s shaky voice barely came through “oh hello my living room window just shattered there’s snow pouring in” I went to pick up my walkie to ask her how bad it was when the radio crackled again “Mrs. Bellcoat this is Tim how bad is it? Are you able to cover the window with anything?” I shook my head, Mrs. Bellcoat was short she wouldn’t be able to reach the top of the window.
“oh damnit its pretty bad, the snow just wont stop pouring in.” her shaky frustrated voice came through. “I tried to cover it with a blanket but the wind is just too strong. “Ok, do you have a small heater?” Tim’s voice sounded reassuring.
I guess he had a plan already. “yes I do its in the bedroom” her voice was barely audible over the howling wind. “ok take the heater, spare blankets your supplies and go into your bathroom, you need a place where you can trap the heat in a small room incase your power goes out. And the heat wont escape through a window.” Tim’s instructions came through. “alright ill get is started.” I put the walkie down and ate a small bit of my dinner while waiting for an update.
After about 10 minutes Mrs. Bellcoat’s voice came through still shaky but the wind no longer drowned out her voice “ok I’ve got me and Jack in the bathroom with our things.” “Alright now stuff some towels into the crack of the door. And someone will come by as soon as they’re able. The storm is too harsh for you or anyone to try and walk through right now.” Tim seemed in control of this. He was leader of the NHW after all so I’m glad he had it under control.
The wind was thumping harder against the side of my house. I had moved the space heater into the living room and Coal had followed it out. I was dozing off when I saw the yellow glow of headlights flash past my window again. The plows were really making sure the roads were clear, which was surprising since then usually wait till after the blizzard has passed to get the more removed residential streets.
The walkie crackled and Mrs. Bellcoat voice came through but it sounded hushed and filled with fear, “h-hello? Is anyone there? I think an animal crawled in through the broken window” I shot awake upright and grabbed the walkie. Tim’s voice came over in a low calm hushed voice “Mrs. Bellcoat turn the knob on the top of the radio down so it is quiet. Then carefully put your ear against the door and tell me what you hear.”
“The wind is so strong but I hear clicking like Jacks nails on the floor only they sound heavier”
“Ok what else?”
“Some sort of weird noise like-” the sound of shattering glass came through the radio followed by the soft whimper of Mrs. Bellcoat.
“Are you ok Mrs. Bellcoat?”
“Y-yes, I think it knocked over the display case” a load scraping sound came through the radio and a loud thump. A low growl came through and Mrs. Bellcoat hushed Jack. A different sound came through the radio, its hard to describe it, like someone recorded the wind and slowed it down and deepened it. Making an almost thumping sound.
Silence. Followed by more silence. I could only think it was a big cat or maybe a bear had somehow found refuge in her house. The radio crackled “the power went out” came a fear filled Mrs. Bellcoats whimper. “shit” I said out loud followed by Tim’s own quite “shit” over the radio. “Ok wrap yourself and jack up in blankets I’ll try to get over there as soon as possible.” In a hushed whisper I radioed out “I’ll come too Tim, channel 4” I keyed my walkie to channel 4 and waited for Tim to switch over.
After a few moments Tim’s voice came over “Hey John you can stay put ill go get her and scare off whatever’s in there” “You don’t know what got into her house Tim I’m already getting my winter gear on” “alright, I’ll meet you at your backdoor.”
I put Coal in the bathroom with the heater, some blankets, his food and water dish and his cat box. I put together a pack of spare snow gear and blankets, glow sticks, flares and a couple of flashlights. I bundled up with facemask and snow goggles and heavy boots and gloves. I opened my back door, which was a partially enclosed deck where I had my generator stored. The snow wasn’t too bad for a few feet but started clearing some snow and popped a flare for Tim to see.
After 15 minutes Tim came falling out of the snow and dragged me to the back door and we fell inside. “Holy shit its bad out” time said as he pulled his goggles up. “I don’t know how I made it, I didn’t see the flare till I was about ten feet away.” He hunched over breathing heavily “were you out there that whole time? its only a minute and a half walk from your house to mine.”
He stood upright and turned to look at me “Something ain’t right out there. There was a path from my house looping around the Parks’ place then to your front window and around back here” I stared at him for a second “why didn’t you just use the road? They’ve been plowing.” Tim Blinked at me once “What the fuck are you talking about there’s been no plow out there” I frowned “But I saw the headlights through my window” “I thought I did too but when I tried the road it was just as deep as the rest of the snow” I stared out my window frowning “fuck it, let’s just go check on Mrs. Bellcoat”
I pulled my goggles down pulled on my pack and opened the door. The wind was howling as we stepped out into the Blizzard. I pulled out some climbing gear string and hooked it to my bag and then to Tims bag and we started off. We took awkward steps through the deep snow, occasionally falling from the wind knocking us off balance. My head lamp did little to illuminate in front of me and Tims didn’t fare much better. I popped a glow stick hoping it would add something but it just turned the snow around us a sickly neon green.
The wind thumped and howled, the snow turning a 2 minute walk into a 10 minute fight. We finally reached my neighbors house and found little refuge at the back of the house. It kept the direct wind off of us as we gathered ourselves for the next part of our rescue. Sucking in air through my facemask I tried to tell Tim I was ready but the wind was too loud even shouting it was difficult to make out words. I tapped him on the shoulder, he turned to me and I motioned forwards towards Mrs. Bellcoats house. He nodded and we started off.
We rounded the corner and found a partial path along the house toward the road, I looked over and saw through the window, two faint lights then trudged on. Tim reached the edge of the house then fell backwards against me as a gust of wind knocked him onto me. I felt him struggle to get off of me and pull me up. He looked back and I nodded at him the winds howling intensifying as we left the side of the house. one step at a time I thought to myself as the wind fought to push me down.
I estimated we were in the middle of the road based on the number of steps we had taken, but it was impossible to tell. All around us was blackness. The light from our lamps and glow stick seemed to be sucked away with each buffet of the. The wind howled in my ears and thumped like a strong bass. It would be almost impossible to get Mrs. Bellcoat to make it through this let alone her dog.
I felt the tug of the rope connecting me and Tim slacken. I bumped into him and noticed we had reached Mrs. Bellcoats house. I hadn’t even noticed it. Tim made his way across the front of the house, I assumed looking for the front window. We came upon it the snow was piling in I cracked a couple of glow sticks and tossed them into different parts of the living room. Hoping whatever animal was in there would be visible. The curtains were flapping furiously. Tim grabbed them and pinned them down on either side of the window. Careful not to make erratic movement.
I noticed deep groves along the edges of the window. I wiped my goggles to clear some snow off of them to get a better look but felt Tim pull on the rope bringing me inside. I clambered in after him and saw from the lights we brought the mess that had been made. Shelves knocked over TV smashed, coffee table crushed. I pulled my goggles up to see better. The wind still howled and thumped against the house. I noticed in the kitchen the fridge had been knocked over and food strewn about.
Frost had built up all over the place. Some parts of the floor completely iced over. Claw marks ripped into the walls, and floors. The smallest ones probably an inch and half across and 8 inches long. My mind immediately conjured the image of a bear tearing us to shreds. Tim walked deeper into the house pulling me along. Gripped with fear I begrudgingly followed.
We turned the corner to head down the hallway when Tim stopped and I bumped into him. I looked down the hallway and felt the blood drain from my face. My body froze.
Blood. Bits of flesh. Dog, and human. All over the hallway.
From further into the house a low, deep howling..
Tim and i Locked eyes. I could feel the horror chilling me to my core. We heard a heavy sharp click, like talons moving in the darkness. We frantically looked around for a place to hide.I pointed at the table. It didn't seem like a smart idea but i couldn't think of anything else. As quietly as we could we slide under the table. There was a low hanging table cloth.
We slid underneath it and waited. The footsteps getting closer. I realized our headlamps were still on and fumbled to to turn it off. I finally just shoved it down the neck of my coat and Tim did the same. But we left the glow sticks. "Oh fuck" i whispered.
The space between the table cloth and the floor was only about 5 inches I prayed it would be enough and whatever was in there with us wouldn't think to look. I stared at the hallway, the entryway dimly lit from the green glow. 4 long claws came into view from the darkness, each claw clicking on the hardwood. Its skin looked to be a sickly pale color. It was impossible to tell. A second clawed hand came into view. A strange low sound, came from the creature. I think the glow stick had its curiosity.
It took slow steps coming out of he dark hallway. Its back feet came into view. They were also the pale color and had sharp nails. it looked almost human, but extremely elongated and deformed. It walked towards the open widow. The clicking of the claws silenced by the snow. I dropped my head on my arms. I let out a deep breath. i hadn't even realized i was holding it. Tim and i waited under that table for another 10 minutes before saying a word.
I didn't know how we would survive getting back to my house with that thing and the blizzard. The storm was supposed to break later that day for a short time. But another blizzard was due in a few days. I've never feared the snow more.

2022.01.18 15:52 pygmypuffonacid Please forgive an ignorant American from intruding on this particular sphere of reddit but I am a bit curious about the Netherlands and its culture
All I really know is that saying about the Dutch building the Netherlands and the fact probably the Best hydroelectric engineers I've ever heard of are from the Netherlands.
So just out of curiosity what are some interesting things about the Netherlands and its traditions and culture that most people might not know about unless they live there?

2022.01.18 15:52 Confused_Giraffe Need first time trip advice!
As the title says, we are looking to take our first real off-road overlanding trip this spring in mid march. We have no experience and would appreciate all the help we could get on where to go and what to pack! All we have right now is a sleeping bag and a 2021 Ford Bronco badlands we got in anticipation of becoming overlanders.
For context, we live in Kansas City, Missouri and could take a 3-6 day trip. Honestly have no clue where to start. I've looked around but planning a trip seems overwhelming since everything is so far away. Just looking for a beginner friendly route that provides good driving and hiking spots. Was considering the east half of Colorado but would go anywhere.

2022.01.18 15:52 DryBonesDad I’m so scared. I feel like my life is going to be ruined.
(Random Throwaway account) So I’m only 17, and it’s coming up to my 2nd month of pain in both my testicles and lower abdomen. The pain sometimes fades but is still apperent, however most of the time it really effects me and i can barely move around. I should be going to college, and I havent been able to see my friends, i barely move to even speak to my own family. I’ve been to the doctor, who i seen after a week of pain, he thought it was orchitis and gave me cipro, didn’t work. So then i went to another doctor and got the same response, another week of cipro and no change. Been waiting 6 weeks for the ultrasound which is going to happen on thursday, I’m just terrified they aren’t going to find anything. Is it wrong i WANT them to find something? This has been the worst 2 months of my life and i would much rather have the pain anywhere else. Honestly am feeling suicidal already and i have no idea how other people have coped longer than this. I cant take my mind of the pain, ive been taking strong painkillers like codeine and it still appears.

2022.01.18 15:52 sirbongbongson I am soooo strong I have all the strength!
Okay maybe I'm exaggerating. But my friend invited me out for beers this weekend. I'm not even worried about it - I told him I have quit drinking, and that if he still wanted a beer I'd be fine with either an N/A beer or soda (I already know it's going to be soda) just to chill.
Not gonna lie it has been a rough couple weeks for sleep and my mental state. And the withdrawals were no fun. Yet my will is strong. See, I know my triggers by now. Being around the stuff doesn't make me want it. Last time I spent with my sister and boyfriend, who were pounding white claws, I abstained and sipped water. I'm about two weeks off the sauce and have been going to the liquor store every day still because they're the only place in town that carries my particular type of tobacco (which I should also eventually quit - insanely expensive habit). Haven't gone home with any beer.
My triggers are stress and the first sip. I've been meditating and focusing on relaxing a lot more so I've got the stress bit covered. As far as the first sip... well I know I just need to not take it! Kindling is scary. I don't want to have a seizure. I find it's easier for me to not start than it is to stop. I'll just smoke a joint and enjoy some quality time with an old friend.

2022.01.18 15:52 sissybitchals Bojacks connection with alcohol
I just watched the show and I absolutely love it and I’m about to rewatch it. I don’t know if this is obvious but I wanted to point it out. As a kid we see bojack drink with his dad and his mom in a flashback. Then as a teenager and young adult he says he doesn’t drink, but it’s not like he never has before. So maybe it’s because he connected alcohol and being high with depression and the toxicity of his childhood. As an adult obviously he becomes an alcoholic and drug addict but I think it’s because he finds solace in the depression and toxicity that it reminds him of from his childhood. A lot of people with depression feel almost comforted by the sadness and I think he started drinking when he realized he wasn’t going to be okay anyway so might as well be comforted by the sadness.
