/emo/23560 Minor angst and existential dread, Mk. I
We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

Everyone gets down from time to time, let's put some Sisters of Mercy on and wallow together for a while.

Against 'God', or whatever those feelings are in your heart - guilt, doubt and disapointment mingled with pleasure, freedom and indulgence. Essentially doing what you know (or at least suspect) to be wrong. Continuing to eat dispite a full stomach, staying up way past the time you realised you're tired. I know these are'nt 'evil' in the sense of the term, but it's a dis-service to yourself. Maybe sin is a better word - i don't know.

I fancy that my problem has something to do with a lack of dicipline.

It's just videogames, you know? I've found something that can help me enjoy spending more time alone in my room, just at the time i'm coming to realise staying alone is actually soul destroying and not producing what i want in life.

I need to cut out all the shit in my life that's wasting time - actually build some character and develop a personality. Then anything that happens to come by will be genuine whether it's a cock in the arse or not.

I've been stuck inside for too long - i need to get out for some fresh air. It doesn't address the issue but it definitely cuts back the feedback loop.

That would definitely be appriciated.

There's nothing evil or sinful about sex itself in that context then. Wasting your time pursuing it at the cost of other things that make you feel fulfilled maybe but from the sound of it computer games are far more "evil" by your meaning of the word than your pursuit of sex is.

I'm well aware we're this is slippery slope territory... Someone at work today told me that the reason athletics is dominated by people whose ancestors were slaves is because their owners used to follow the principles of selective breeding in livestock, making the strongest breed with the strongest and so on. That's apparently why they do better than blacks whose ancestors weren't enslaved.

Is this true? I'm quite gullible. I'd have thought that the latter could simply be explained by America having much greater funding and resources than bongo bongo land.

Think about all other traditional hats associated with a particular tribe, the Laotian wear lampshades to keep the sun off, the aussies wear cork hats to keep the flies away, the eskimos wear fur hats to keep warm. All have a practical use.
But the kippah has no practical use, it is entirely for show. It's only function is to broadcast how you are in a position of power or have a job inside the institutions, so you don't need protection from the elements while toiling outside all day.

I bought some chestnuts from M&S tonight for comparison against the Lidl ones from the other week.

The M&S chestnuts are bigger and heavier, and more expensive, while disappointingly, they are less sweet and have less overall flavour. On the other hand, no sign of the dreaded chestnut weevil infestation on these here chestnuts.

It appears largethreadmodlad has also locked the previous iteration of this thread; Mark VIII it is, then.

I take perfect care of my nails. I don't bite them, I cut in the standard flat formation every 3-5 days, and scrub under them in the shower. So why the actual fuck are my cuticles bleeding? Putting the plaster over to catch the blood means I can't play my bass properly, and that pisses me off.

Whenever I go out I seem to end up with something stuck to the bottom of my shoe. I'd love to know who these bastards are that keep spitting gum everywhere so I could write them a sternly worded letter.

It's a London problem from my experience and maybe that speaks about how the local culture here is one of abandoning social standards.

I've noticed this as well. I think there is a good deal that has gone wrong with the new series along with my more general gripe that I wish his documentaries spent more time with animals.

Depends on how you read it I suppose. I can read it as depressing, but on the other hand it's cosily familiar.

If you strip away all the shite about Christmas - the shopping, the arguments, Mariah Carey being played non-stop - once you get to the day itself isn't it just a nice bit of fun with the people you love?

Once upon a time, Christmas was an opportunity to treat yourself to all the things you couldn't normally afford - plenty of meat, chocolates, rich puddings, fancy foreign booze and all that. These days, most of us can afford to eat like kings whenever we feel like it, hence the obesity crisis.

If you try and make Christmas special, I think you're setting your self up for disappointment. There just isn't very much left that constitutes a special treat any more. I'd much rather have a nostalgic Christmas. What better way to introduce someone to a British Christmas celebration than to re-create how you remember Christmas from when you were a kid?

I often visit people over Christmas who have clearly made far too much effort. Their living room looks like something out of a magazine, their kids are all in matching Christmas jumpers, they've made posh canapés and special ginger biscuits and all that. How are those people going to feel in the dreary lull between Christmas and New Year? How are they going to exceed themselves next year? If you have the same slightly depressing Christmas that you always have, then there's no pressure. It's comfy and cozy in a half-arsed sort of way. If your expectations are low enough, you'll never be disappointed.

Have a shit Christmas, lads. It's much more fun. Get a straggly tree and cover it in poundshop tinsel, buy some Eat Me dates and a bag of satsumas, make some paper chains with coloured paper and pritt-stick. Crack out the Scrabble and have a blazing row about the rules. Wake up on Boxing Day with a nasty hangover, bad indigestion and a sense of vague existential dread, then get stuck straight into the Baileys and the leftover turkey. Chin up, because in less than a week you'll spend £20 to get into a Yates' and spend the whole night desperately waiting to get served.

/emo/27047 Where to meet birds
So, I've decided to try and not be that guy, a relationship-less virgin, into my mid-20s, which doesn't leave me with very long. I'm home from uni for the summer and have decided it's time to sort my act out.

The only problem - where to meet women?

I've completed tinder in a 15 mile radius, likewise for Bumble - zero (0) matches. I've messaged pretty much every girl on OKCupid with a match >75%; not one has replied.

What can I do now? The few local schoolfriends I am still in contact with are all male, everyone at my job is male, and all the women I talk to (from uni) are either in a relationship or otherwise not an option.

Going out to clubs doesn't work because a) I don't have anyone to go with, and b) when I try and do anything but stand at the bar drinking in a club (ie dance) I look like a tortoise trying to pilot a motorcycle.

Any ideas?

I'm back on the dating sites after a break of many months.

OkCupid doesn't work for me, I get very few matches there. I don't know if they're expecting a really well written bio. I did notice a lot of the same faces from the last time I was there, that feels like a bad sign. The UX is also terrible.

I get some matches on the swiperino apps, but most of them aren't interested enough to have an actual conversation .It should be a bit soul crushing, but I stopped caring quickly. I get more hits on Tinder than on Bumble, but I've only ever met up with women from Bumble. I find them quite addictive, and I doubt that the constant wash of rejection is psychologically healthy. I'm considering paying for one of the boost options, just to see how effective they are.

I've been trying Hinge. I'm having better luck there than on the others. I recommend it to any newlads who aren't having much luck on Tinder.

>I find them quite addictive

Yep, so do lots of people, including lassies. Part of their business strategy is to subtly encourage time wasters who are basically just there for attention- They'd kill their own business if everyone found a match straight away.

From your perspective you really need to learn to identify those ones. After a while it's not difficult; what is difficult is the willpower nit to waste your time trying to chat them up because you don't have many other matches to work with. The fact you're starting to feel nonplussed and indifferent is a great asset here.

The golden rule still holds true. It's a numbers game- When you find one you click with, you KNOW you click, and it's usually just entirely by accident that you strike up a conversation as if you've known each other for years right at the start. Don't waste your time with those pointless back and forth where you know they're not putting in their fair share of the effort.

Also just gonna come out and say it- Birds are fucking shit at online dating too. They're used to getting all the attention hounded by dozens of men so they rarely put in the effort that's required to find and meet someone they would actually connect with. This self sabotage leads to a vicious cycle. Keep ot in mind when you're dealing with them.

>Also just gonna come out and say it- Birds are fucking shit at online dating too.

I think this is a lesson that men need to learn, quickly, when they enter the world of dating. Women have just as many problems with the dating scene as men do (both online and offline)- for sure they get more attention off the bat, but not the kind of attention you or I would relish. You need female friends (real ones) to learn and see this first-hand.

Also, when in the online dating scene - you need to know that you're frequently working with a group of people. I'm old and married, which is why the first twenty minutes of meeting with a single, female friend who is online dating, is often spent with me filtering their latest matches (and contributing to how they reply).

I would totally agree that a) its a numbers game and b) don't waste time trying to force it; if someone is an effort to talk to online, they'll most likely be ten times that in real life. Focus on the people you click with, it's obvious when it happens.

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:

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.

>I believe it was you that wrote

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 anyone gives a shit how this turned out, the geographically closer but more tepid thing fizzled out. I told her up front that it wasn't working for me. We haven't seen eachother in weeks, and our last fling was months ago. Things were left on a very cold note, and I don't know whether it's worth me trying to salvage a friendship. Maybe it's confirmation bias, but things never really felt right, there.

The more inconvenient but passionate relationship is still going, and though it started with serious issues, I get the sense that this girl sees me as more a part of her life and actually cares for me. The last visits I've been staying longer and I feel like we've reached a new level. This is feeling like a relationship, a fun one.

I think the reason I fucked up like this was really just a fear of emotionally committing to someone who could just call it off at any second. I feel a lot more secure about it, but I have noticed when I start thinking about how things could go south, I start getting the urge to look elsewhere. It can become a crutch, to have other options so you don't have to invest fully in one. But maybe it's worth it, here.

Remembrance Day will now honour civilians and victims of terror after the Royal British Legion announces the red poppy isn't just for fallen soldiers

Watch out, lads. Big Poppy is getting bigger. The Cookie Monster wasn't enough for them.

A man who disrupted a Remembrance Sunday event with fireworks had to be rushed away from angry veterans by police.

The fireworks exploded in the sky as hundreds of people stood in silence at 11:00 GMT and listened to the Last Post at the cenotaph in Eccles, Salford.

A man had set them off from a window ledge in a disused pub across the road. Angry veterans began shouting, "Get him out!" and trying to break down the pub door before officers took the man away.

I don't think anything this year will top last year's paedo-vigilantes.

I've heard/seen so many complaints about poppy burners this year yet I don't think anyone new has actually done it this time around.

People get really angry at the argument that burning something as a symbolic or political gesture is exactly the sort of thing that you're only really allowed to do because of the freedom are lads fought for.

There's a video doing the rounds of an Irish woman burning a poppy in London. Probably a Labour voter.

You'll need to start with Stephen Hawking's Brief History of Time if you want to know it all. It's quite a quick read, relative to the rest of what you'll have to read combined.

Jacob Bronowski, despite not being a historian as such, gives one of the most beautiful overviews of human development I've ever come across in The Ascent of Man. It's more like anthropology, really, or a kind of history of science -- but the scope goes a lot wider than that, drawing on culture, biology, geography, and politics.

I'd recommend watching the television series and using the book as a companion. Finding this series in my early twenties genuinely made me a more a more compassionate person. If I could redesign a history curriculum from scratch, I'd probably draw heavily on this work.

Her heart's in the right place, but I don't think she has the experience or the political savvy to be PM. She'd be a decent opposition to a Johnson government, she'd be an excellent DPM, but I worry that a Phillips premiership could be a road to hell paved with good intentions.

I still fancy the pants off her, mind.

If only the soldiers of the Great War had exercised common sense in employing infiltration and combined arms tactics then so many deaths could've been avoided. If JRM had been born 100 years earlier the whole thing would've been over by Christmas.

I can't believe she didn't take the chance to auto-tune her vocals. Also forgot to side chain that kick or add the mandatory minimalist breakdown where you go like, off-beat for 16 bars before a reprise.

7/10 promising but needs work. Good hook, had me solidly nodding my head at the first.
