What do you do when you break up with somebody who trusts you. I feel like I've abandoned somebody quite special. Patient, kind, understanding. And I feel like an ass because now they think they've done something wrong, or they're not good enough. I broke up because I have a fixation with another girl who I've known as a friend for a lot longer, but who I still don't know very well on an individual level. And probably it will come to nothing; she won't like me once she knows me, or I won't like her, and now I've hurt somebody I liked, who also liked me. I think I need somebody to tell me that maybe I made the wrong decision, but it's not fatal; it's not a big deal.

If you wanted to pursue other possibilities then ending it is the kindest thing you could have done for her. It sucks but any other decision would have been crueller in the long run.

Don't listen to this lad.

By doing this you have undermined the foundations and it's always going to be weaker as a result. It's a shame, and sometimes you will make the wrong decision in love. But it's true what they say, there will always be someone else.

It's important to keep in mind that you always want what you can't have- I always lust after my exes. I have to remind myself of all the reasons I left them/they left me. The brain has a habit of leaving out their flaws when you look back in yearning.

I'm afraid i have very little advice to give you OP, but know that I've just suggested a break from my partner, as I too have become somewhat fixated with another (which will likely come to nothing, but I think i'm OK with that).

The problem is though, I've had a couple of breaks with my partner for a few different reasons over the last few years. However, as time passes we both end up very depressed and missing each other dreadfully, and we end up back together. But then, as more time passes I always end up wanting to separate again. It feels like i'm stuck in a bit of a loop, so perhaps now really is the time to move on. I do understand how tough this all is though. It's not a pleasant feeling hurting someone who has been so kind and supportive over the years.

High reps or low reps? What do you prefer?

I'm a high rep guy. I usually train all exercises for 1 or 2 sets of 20.

High reps sets are much more stimulating and demanding than low reps. If I do less than 12 reps it doesn't feel like I've worked the muscle at all. High reps are generally safer and kinder to the joints too.

Normally I avoid Joe Rogan's podcast like the plague but this lad's actually quite insightful.

The weird thing is as well, it's only really western folk that work out knocking their pan in once or thrice a week.

I spent a good few months training with Indonesian lads and they're at it every day, because it's fun to them and not work. Changed my mindset about exercise, it did.

It was a very small gym, only 1 room, so it was more social as well, they would egg each other on to get one more set in, or do races on the treadmill, things like that.

I think that's down to a cultural thing more than 'intensity vs consistency', though.

I think so, there's definitely been days where I've skipped the gym due to soreness from going too hard a the day or a couple of days before. I can only speak for myself, but I'm quite all-or-nothing, and one missed day can quickly spiral into a missed week, so being consistent has worked out way better for me than being more intense in my work outs.

Ihave made a mental arithmetic brain trainer.

It generates expressions at random like "6 * 3" that you have to evaluate as fast as possible.

It's set to use numbers 1-10 but you can gradually increase the range as you get better.

I recommend training for 20 mins a day.

It wasn't his best but it was still pretty solid. Decent anecdotal commentary on the waxing and waning of Hollywood celebrity culture, cancel culture, and other cancers of the modern world.

To claim Dave Chappelle is "anti-woke" is laudable. The article - and many others like it - don't even touch on his lampooning of the hate crime hoax that was the Jussie Smollett case. Writers like Taylor Hosking live in blissful ignorance and hold fast to their beliefs of a false dichotomy between comedy and commentary where there may be no moderate middle ground.

tl;dr: basically what >>22850 said, innit.

if you met the queen, would you dare ask her to lend you a fag?

do you think she'd lend you one? would she save you twos?

if the queen lent you a fag, how much do you reckon you could get for it on ebay? would it be more valuable if it was twos on a fag the queen herself smoked?

Very sad news. It's home to many priceless artefacts and artworks, including woodwork that dates to the 13th century. It's believed to have started due to the current construction work.

If there's one small, silver lining, it's that we'll probably take extra precautions when renovating the House of Commons.

/g/27251 Practical Networking primers and such
Not too long ago I managed to land myself a position as some sort of a systems administrator / network engineer at a small to medium local ISP in the middle of nowhere.
I'm moderately familiar with their network from the tech support days in the same company. I've dabbled with Linux and *BSD systems before, these don't scare me really.
I've also read Tanenbaum and Olifers' books about networks.

All of this helps immensely though at times I feel like I only barely manage to keep myself from drowning. I can coast along like this a few years, I think, yet I'd prefer not to.

Recommend me something hands-on, please. I've identified at least a few areas where I suck, these include: interoperability between Layer-2 and Layer-3 technologies, routing [0], gateways and firewalls. For the latter, whilst I have a rather clear idea how to firewall an endpoint, I struggle with firewalling transit nodes.

To clarify about L2/L3 inter-op a bit, one particular problem I've grappled with included passing transit traffic in a dedicated vlan id through the edge router. There, it had to exit the network via what I understand to be a L3 interface.
It boiled down to setting up bridge domains or whatever its name was. I smashed together a config using a similar one for another VID but bugger me if I undestood what I did.

Brexit will perhaps mean regulators and crime fighters have to strain their resources, and tere is a belief that money laundering will increase.
So for my academic research what
Transactions are by most companies trackable through some form of Footpath.

I'm considering getting my teeth whitened but I'm worried of how much of a pillock I will look. Have any of you lads had it done before and can you share just how bright and white they will look.

My teeth aren't fucked up but the bottom teeth are a little stained thanks to a lifetime spent on the tea.

Indeed I'm sure most people who have teeth as white as the before picture wouldn't bother. Those of us who don't however might want whiter teeth. So let's cut the straw man 'you alreadyy look great' bullshit.

currently going through the process of whitening via dentist, steps as such:

got a mould made of my teeth at the dentist
come back 2 weeks later, get personalised kit with teeth whitening gel, syringe things and my plastic mould to squirt gel in
every evening before i go to bed i squirt gel in the mould and put it on my teeth overnight (but often i can only last four hours before it gets too burn-ey), it's quite uncomfy to wear and very strongly acidic so it hurts like a bitch if your teeth are at all sensitive (mine are a bit so i have to alternate nights).

the results have been quite good so far tbh, i wasn't expecting like jurgen klopp results but then again i think the creepy whitening shit is done via veneers which are like 10 grand a tooth so you'd prob go down my route which cost me 290 quid for the mould and the set of gel and syringes (and dental advice).

(A good day to you Sir!)

Sorry for adding this short fucking novel to the spate of recent /emo/ posts, particularly one with such a similar problem to otherlad, but I’m >>28820 and this problem is at a crossroads.

No excuses for my behaviour, but the story goes:

I started dating Girl A and things were a bit tepid. We had some nice dates but things weren't getting much beyond platonic. After a couple of weeks of not meeting, Girl B happened to move to a nearby town, someone I’d mingled with in the past and wanted to ask out two years earlier, but our jobs separated us before I had the chance. We met to catch up, and I felt a strong attraction. I visited her over a couple of weekends and things really click, we had some nice long discussions about life, and we had sex.

This is where things get bad. During one of my visits, Girl B looks through my phone while I’m taking a shower, finding messages from Girl A. I explain the situation – that things never really came together with Girl A – and while she’s understandably upset, she apologises for looking through my phone. We put it down to bad timing, and admitted that while the distance made things a bit complicated, we agreed a train journey to spend weekends together is a small price to pay and that it was still worth pursuing.

Girl A figured out something is up when our messaging cooled off. She asked me if there’s anything I want to tell her, and I tried to do the honourable thing. I told her about Girl B. She became angry – I replied that I like her but it wasn’t really clear that there was attraction between us. It could be that we’re different in how we express things. She assured me she that the "signs were there", and asks if we can’t “see where things go without any external interference".

If I were a better person I’d have said no… but I didn't, and Girl B then began to open up. We met up and did some outdoorsy activities, had fun, bonded a bit. We started sharing a bit more of our lives. She eventually offered to cook for me at her flat and I stayed the night. This led to my current situation. I see Girl A once or twice a week the evenings, rarely staying over but sometimes having sex, and I take a train to see Girl B and stay with her every other weekend or so.

I do feel immense guilt, and I know in the back of my head that I’m really sabotaging both. Things have been dragging on like this for a while, two or three months. Combined with money troubles and the fact I'm balancing a ludicrous workload (two part time jobs, odds and ends, organising a big career-related move, and full-time study), this has caused a lot of stress. I feel like I'm living a double/triple life. I want a clear conscience without causing unnecessary hurt.

Actually deciding what to do:

Lad, you're not confident and this drama is a great way to distract you. You clearly have a lot on your plate with work and study- it appears stupid to embroil yourself in more drama.

Your decisions have caused you to feel worse and worse as time goes on, and you seek a solution that gets you out guilt-free. You can't, even if they never find out, as you know what's gone down and how it's played out. You have hurt people and you are living a double life.

There is no issue here, there's nothing to work out- you just need to accept it yourself and move forward. Clearly, both the women are alright but you're not in the right place for either of them. You're being a pussy by leading both of them on. I believe it was you that wrote:

>So you're saying sack them both off and be alone? I may as well take the chance with one of em.

Your aversion to being alone makes it all clear.

If you want to pick A or B then fine, you could probably swing it so that they never found out about all this and go on to live a happy life. However, I think you need to step up a bit and really recognise that a lot of this is about you being scared of being alone. Besides, had you taken action earlier you would have avoided a whole lot of trouble, and could have met the much better girl C, or even girl D (my personal favourite).

Lastly, you might want to think about why you put yourself in this position. It's often talked about passively, as if you can't help who you're attracted to, but you have walked into this of your own volition. There can be motives: it's easier to pine and hope for a better tomorrow, rather than accept and address your grimmer reality.

tl;dr – Get on with it

Anon, are you the lad that posted in my old thread about the similar position?

If so, good luck, let me know what you do work out. I think there has to be a mythical girl C or D down the line, one thing I've learnt is that it's a mistake to stay with somebody because they're 'acceptable' and nothing else.

This really stings though, and I know what it's like trying to hold on to two boats sailing in different directions.

Good luck, please update us.

That was actually the other lad who is facing a similar problem. I posted in that thread asking how things turned out, but didn't want to hijack his thread with my situation.

Otherwise, I assume you read my post and came to these conclusions about me. If so, not confident in what? My ability to meet new people, or in my life situation right now? Giving that some thought... "Dating" in this way is a new game to me, though I seem to be doing alright at it. Meeting and clicking with people for something more lasting, though, that has an element of chance that I find it difficult to cope with. My life right now is challenging, no doubt, but I am pretty certain things will turn out roughly as I want. As a sidenote, the last thing I wanted was to add this shite on top of almost constant pressure elsewhere.

I'm not sure my problem is fear of being alone -- I actually fear being stuck in a bad relationship more, honestly, which is why I'm thinking a lot about the long-term future. I also notice that there's an assumption here that we're all a bit younger than we actually are. For context, I'm in my late twenties and both girls are early to mid-thirties.

If I were to take a look at myself and why I made these bad decisions, I'd say it's a combination of factors. I was in a situation last year where I invested a lot in a girl and things unravelled within a few months. That was a horrible one. Another is my recent flurry of activity has put me in a kind of "take every opportunity, do everything to the best of your ability, hedge your bets" mindset, but I'm aware this is a morally awful thing to apply to other human beings. Another factor is that I genuinely like both and could see some sort of future with either girl.

I'm not asking to be absolved of guilt for my actions so far. I can live with what I've done, as long as I make some effort now to reduce the inevitable hurt someone's going to feel. I can try to be moral now, at least, and make the best of the situation.

Messaging Girl A and urging us to meet to talk...

Even now it's hard to work up the nerve to break up. Not just because I know she'll be hurt and disappointed, but also because I know there's a potential future in there I'll never get to see.

Why is it the moment I'm trying to end it, my mind runs through all the nice moments we've had?

I wish there were some way to continue both relationships without hurting anyone further. But it's easy for me to say from my more comfortable/powerful position. If I were them, I would be very jealous and angry if I knew the truth.

There's also a flipside to me where I almost feel resentful with both, as they both expressed early stage cold feet, anyway. I'm honestly tired of being expected to commit fully to people who are themselves extremely changeable. I know it's just the nature of things...

If you're not shy then why haven't you tried picking up drunken bints on your Friday jaunts?

I would probably start working on the "no friends" bit first. Ideally you could find some sort of club where you can bond with people over shared interests, but if not, amateur team sports would be a good bet. I read somewhere that exercise enhances social bonds on a hormonal level, and the effect is even more potent when backed up by the camaraderie of team sports.

Well, if something isn't working then you need to try a different strategy. If you have a stable job and don't live at home then there's always speed-dating where women are forced to interact with you. I don't know what you're expecting to achieve by wandering the streets the nights or going to bars on your own.

This might be anecdotal, but for what it's worth, my sexual relationships basically come down to meeting people through the following channels:

a) mutual friends
b) work colleagues
c) themed get-togethers intended for people to mingle (i.e. meetups, clubs)
d) online apps (I've had the most success with Bumble, where girls confirm their interest first)

So those are some more concrete suggestions. But as other lads have pointed out, it sounds like your problems may run a bit deeper. You can gradually overcome social isolation with a few positive changes here and there. For example, finding a new (or any) job automatically puts you into contact with people, moving to a new area will give you new neighbours and a reason to attend local meetups.

I think you should try focusing on the problems you can control and generally leading a good fulfilling life, meeting people will come naturally from that. Don't let it knock your confidence that you haven't had sex -- I'm sure you have your legitimate reasons and struggles.

Many people end up with absolutely dysfunctional sex lives despite early "success". Think about the people who have sexless relationships or marriages, those who are cheating, developing risky/dangerous sex behaviours, or hide their true sexual orientations. Not having sex until a late age is certainly not the worst thing that can happen in someone's sexual development
