Well reddit the holidays are upon us and i feel like trying my luck again. If youre between the ages of 20 and 30 this post is for you! So first off a bit about me. I'm a college senior trying to turn my movie obsession into a career, i do my fair share of gaming (ps4 for the win!), i am a major bookworm and i do a bit of screenwriting. Im a disney fan, potterhead, and comic book reader to name just a few geeky obsessions. I like travelling and road trips, i've been to a few exotic locations and i'm actually planning a big trip for the holidays next year. (Assuming covid goes away) At 5'4 i'm a pretty short guy but i more than make up for it in laughs. Oh and no napoleon complex here! All you tall ladies are more than welcome to hit me up! To get into the more naughty areas im anything but vanilla. I'm pretty adventurous and if my partner wants to try something i'm totally willing to give it a shot. Now that my bio is out of the way....
What i'm looking for: i'm looking for a woman who lets her geek flag fly, who loves to laugh, and If youre a redhead thats a major bonus. Im looking for someone i can sing love songs to and cuddle and watch netflix with. So yeah hit me up! DM me or catch me on reddit chat. I do have other social media we could go to after that. I am not averse to LDR at all!

2020.11.27 04:50 chasecrosswa 32[M4F]Seattle - Dom ISO for his Opposite-Yet-Equal Cis-Female Sub

It's worth noting that I do not intend to physically meet up with anyone until we've both determined we've successfully social distanced from people for, at least, two weeks. I also would like to this moment to encourage everyone else to also practice social responsibility by staying home and avoid physical encounters. This pandemic is STILL a serious issue and if you want to protect your loved ones, the best thing to do is avoid all risks of being a carrier. Trust me, I know what's it's like to be overwhelmingly lonely -and horny- but health takes precedence.
With that said...
Hello, everyone. My name is Chase. I’m a Dominant/Master who is 32yo, an INFJ, transplant from California, egalitarian, proud nerd, photography and astronomy enthusiast. I spend most of my free time exploring the Seattle area, exploring new restaurants, and scouting out places to photograph. Alternatively, I can also be a homebody so I do love my days-ins. I can be an adult when the situation calls for it, but honestly, I feel no shame whatsoever in laughing at old memes or dumb youtube videos.
So, I'm seeking Someone who is my opposite and yet my equal. My ideal partner is someone whom I can teach to be the ideal submissive. On the other hand, she is also someone whom can teach me to be the ideal dom. Perfection is by no means a pretense of mine and I would expect us both to learn from our mistakes as well as our successes. Trust, comfort and safety take precedent overall else. I feel that if I, for whatever reason, fail to adequately provide even one of the three, I fail as a partner and dominant. This is also why I also value open-communication
What I’m looking for: I’m primarily seeking a mutually nurturing and fulfilling long-term, monogamous, in-person relationship with a D/S dynamic with someone who identifies as cis-female. I strongly prefer someone who is around my age or younger and someone who is petite to athletic. I will consider every message I receive, though. Personality-wise, my partner would be extroverted, spontaneous, passionate, confident and energetic. She craves adventure, excitement and is likely to smile and laugh. Think Daisy Ridley offset (God, I adore her!)
I have a great admiration for women who are strong, independent, knows exactly what she wants from herself and her partner(s), won’t let inhibition get the better of them and are able to fully embrace their kinks and desires. With that in mind, I have a desire for a sub who is physically-affectionate, service-orientated, slutty, obedient, sexually-inclined and intuitive on how to please her simaster. So, I'm in search for someone who proudly claims ownership of her own life and craves for the release of submission knowing that it won’t compromise her integrity as a strong individual. Basically, my ideal partner is a strong submissive.
I’m exceptionally turned on by objectification so my ideal partner would be someone who is either tolerant of being treated like a toy or turned on by it. Otherwise, I greatly appreciate child-like innocence. In other words: a sub whose spectrum can range from Little to Slave When things get hot, intense and intimate, I would expect my partner to behave like the submissive that she is. She would also be my “sex slave”, “cock whore”, “grope toy”, “cum slut” or any other arbitrarily demeaning noun I can assign to her. She’ll be someone whom I’ll teach, tie up, protect, spank, reward, collar and leash among other things. I’d love someone who will cook for me wearing nothing but an apron and butt plug. Or will willingly wear a harness underneath her clothing for the whole day when I want her to. Or will immediately drop her panties to the floor when I order her to. And so on, and so on, and so on.
And when it’s all said and done… She can gently and safely step down from sub-space so that she can spend time with me doing other things. Vanilla things. This includes going out to do things like exploring, checking festivals, hiking, watching films, checking out new restaurants or going on roadtrips. Alternatively, we could have days-ins where we can enjoy playing Mario Kart/Smash Bros, binge-watching Netflix/movies or cuddling. Preferably while watching Marvel or Disney films. Honestly: I've got a giant weakness for them.
What I have to offer: Affection, comfort, intellectual stimulation, emotional security, loyalty, total safety, private play space, check-ins and mandatory post-play aftercare, unconditional nerdy trivia and mean-ass steak and the best gluten-free pho you’ve ever had!
If you’re wondering about my end goal, it’s this: This isn’t strictly a kink-relationship. I also want it to be a vanilla one. If the stars-align and we match up perfectly, minds and hearts, I’ll undoubtedly would like to have a future with you. Bring you home to meet my mom; visit Disneyland together; possibly get married; have children. But for now, one step at a time, right?
In any event, I sincerely thank you all for taking the time to visit and read through my ad. I apologize if it seems long-winded or overly-demanding. I'm just over-elaborate more than anything, heh. But if I somehow managed to entice you and appeal to your interests, feel free to message me! Alternatively, if you know someone who may match my interests and vice versa, please pass along my ad.
Either way, I hope you all have a wonderful week!

2020.11.27 02:17 Carliewarliee [Request][Switch]Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memories [Final (4th) Edition]

Good morning, afternoon, evening netizens of GoG!
The Appetiser
Welcome to the final chapter of my request..
If you wanna see part 1 feel free to click here to view what I had to say.
Part 2 is here.
Part 3 is here.
So, here's the TLDR about me and the situation:
I'm 28 years old, and am looking for a place after the work program ends to stay with my partner. I am a teacher living in Japan teaching English as a second language and put my 110% into making sure students have a wonderful time learning about the West while learning English. I'm also mindful that students are very concerned due to COVID, so I always try to make sure that appropriate measures are being taken to ensure that at least while they are at school, that they are all safe and spaced away from each other.
We have to tackle visa costs, debts to pay off, personal situations (i.e. Partner being hit by a car a few weeks ago - he's ok now!), the high tax prices we have to pay end of every year, rent and so on. The little bit we do have we have saved so we don't become immediately homeless once the work program is over (or if there is an emergency at home).
Main Meal - A continuation and additional reason on why Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memories:
I love many genres of games and learning to adapt to the mechanics of that game's world. I have a special spot in my heart for action role-playing games, games that make me laugh out loud, and games with amazing soundtracks. Kingdom Hearts series boasts an incredible range of music, both from its own original OSTs and from other titles that came before with Disney. It has some fun, light-hearted moments and also deeply serious moments. It's a nightmare to explain the plot to friends and even I sometimes have trouble a little, but all in all, I enjoy most of what I've seen so far!
There is a functionality to this game that I think will prove beneficial to me in terms of hand to eye co-ordination. It's something I feel a bit weird about explaining, but I am dyslexic, and I do have issues with co-ordination. Regularly, I do as much as I can to try and improve my co-ordination skills through several forms of brain training. And the thing about Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is... it's a rhythm game, which primarily focuses on the player getting each button inputted at the exact moment of time along to the beat of the music. It sounds like the perfect tool in addition to an interesting and fun game to play.
Not only will it mean a lot to have Kingdom Hearts game primarily focusing on Kairi and music, but it will also mean a lot in terms of someone who's been constantly struggling with co-ordination all of their life to improve this while having fun at the same time.
Road to Light - A shoutout to my friends and colleagues at Arcade Theory:
Here's the side note again! I do gaming reviews for Arcade Theory! I'd love to be able to have the opportunity to review this installment and to share my experience and take on the game with you all, through its ups and downs. I like to think that despite being a fan, I can be impartial to all aspects of the game regardless of what comes up!
By the way...You should totally check out what the crew has written out on games that have recently come up. Come support the team via Patreon if you can!. Even if you don't help me out with my request, it would mean so much to us knowing that you could support our team.
Road to Dawn - My Nintendo Switch Friend Code/Let's talk about the game!:
Here's the Nintendo Switch Friend Code: SW-7622-7104-3915 ! If you wanna play with me at any point some games I'm down as long as I'm free to play time zone wise! You can reach out to me on my discord (on GoG I am Chickenarla) or on dms here.
Don't be a heartless, let's chat!
Feel free to chat/laugh/shake fists with me about the game or series! Do you like it? Hate it? Can't stand Donald Duck's voice? Have some fun jokes or memes/videos to share? Does it make you want to break out into a song?
Since this will be my last request for *Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory** game... *
Next volume:
After this, I'll be requesting for a game on the switch that has just gone on discount for Black Friday, called Nippon Marathon (It's 4 pounds and 7 pence on the UK store). It's made by a couple who live in the UK now but have been to Japan many times before. A friend of mine pre-pandemic played the game with me, my partner, and several other friends and we had a blast. I never played the campaign the time I played with the friend (since it's a single-player) but I have played the party mode with friends and it's absolutely bonkers. I'd love to have a chance to play the campaign through and play the party mode with the partner.

2020.11.27 00:57 Megafunado1 The time my social life almost got ruined

I was in 6th grade . I always had problems making friends but at that grade I managed to have a group , that was kind of and achievement for me . Ok back to the point, in Spanish class they make us read a book called 2083 ( I know that the title sounds cool but the entire book is the typical boomer speech of the kids of nowadays and the technology....blah blah blah ) and when we finished the book we make a test about it , the test was stupidly big compared to size of the book the test was in pairs I make it with a guy call Nicolai ( not real name ) he was a very nice guy . Whatever our original teacher so they send a remplace and that replace brought some iPads so we can help us with the internet. Whatever my partner was playing google snake ( that didn’t bother me , I actually like to make things at my own) but a classmate started talking about a website that had the answers of the test that classmate I will call it Factor ( obviously not real name ) . Factor was talking about this website and in less than a minute almost al the class was on that website ( we had a history test next to the Spanish class and they cheated in that test too ) . Going to bus I heard my at that time crush ( if I get 1 upvote I will post how I ruined my chances with my crush) said ,,I’m gonna write an email on the teacher,, and that sound like a nice idea to me so write an email on the teacher too . At the next day morning was pretty good there was just a weak rumor about the email but nothing else . But when the Spanish class came the rumor get stupidly stronger an everybody started fighting and there were som people I don’t ever think I will see fighting is like imagine a fight Disney against Pixar, you just can’t imagine it . They started insulting my partner nicolai, started insulting me and started insulting a friend of mine call Mariana. (That her real name she is a person I admire because even all the Times she had social problems she never stop being herself). So looking how they attacked me and my friends I broke emotionally and started crying when I’m mad air fails me so I can do much more than breathe in a very loud form so I didn’t insult they back but in mind I was saying something about abortion and bitches . I leave the classroom don’t giving a fuck about anything I just go into the park and it was a very drastic change of ambient. I think I walk and cussing in my mind for like 45 minutes . I was hurt about that the one of my best friends attacked me and I know that friend since kindergarten . I found my at that time crush talking with a friend of another class so that calm me down a little. School was over and I still very angry and sad by that time ( picking my backpack in that classroom feel like absolute hell ) . My sister calm me down in the way home . Well I tell my dad about the situation and he laughed because I said ,, I manage to make 14 people piss off,, . After the boring for you talk with me I just make my own business for the rest of the day . The next day morning I had lot of feelings . Thank goodness my school has a zero tolerance for bullying because I would get my ass kicked if it wasn’t. Things don’t get any bigger after the talk with the teachers. I just forgive my classmates one by one ( there some I haven’t forgive ) .why am I telling this history ; because morning I may be in a similar situation....wish me luck

2020.11.26 06:37 muffbuffer66 Im Triggered by Christmas!

Long post,
Sorry first time putting this down like this, i hope i don't upset anyone with my references to my sittuations and traumas.
I've typed this out 3/4 times on my mobile to post but delete it, look at the other posts of peoples experiences,then i look at what I've written, and feel stupid, embarrassed, and angry for wasting peoples time.
This time I'm going through with it...Sorry in advance..
There are so many facets to this flawed gem,and so many of them have been cracked and tarnished over the course my wretched existence, i have tried to polish some of them, to maybe dime a particular pain, and others i dare not address for fear of the memories,and maelstrom of hurt that comes with them, theres nothing good about them, but i understand that there symbiotic to the others, and therefor will forever remain..
Main source for my many traumas is my parents alcohol fuelled violence.Father 35 yr decorated army veteran returned to civilian life, But never had his Warriors Mind, deactivated, Civilian Patch 2.0 was never uploaded.
He wasn't home from active tours until i was 10, middle brother of 3.loner kid, had associates, not friends, not like the ones i had in later life, which i destroyed due to my self medicating with drugs and alcohol.
My Mother,who was a barley funnctioning alcoholic, Stay at home mum,trying to run a household,of 3 terror boys on very low income, we all had handle down clothing everything really, was just hoe it was. She was also trying to cope with my dads undiagnosed ptsd, nightmares, where he would be sleep strangling her.
That and his Volcanic temper that was furiously administered if he was taken to it, which was daily. There where no hugs, I'm now very uncomfortable with the practice, No i love yous, i have trouble with my emotions,i struggle to express myself that I'm feeling when in an arguments, i just shut down,i just give up, i agree to whatever I'm being accused of, its easier and makes the noise,of the person upset with me and for the noise in my head stop. left there i guess in the aftermath of my parents yelling matches,i started to turn uo the volume od my subconscious white noise random thoughts and anything i could do to make the outside noise and violence stop, never worked though, the violence either on my mum or me, strangely he always singled me out,don't know wether that fact that at times he would wail om me just to get a reaction,noise, and i got pounded harder if i didn't..seemed to be some weird game top him guess..
Now to the actual problem, iwasd cursed by having my day of origen on the 12/25/
To even say it as any other living being would makes me anxious and the rage starts to build.
I Absolutely Hate that day, and all that i associated with it.
From the age of 5 when just knew that something about that day was just wrong. That the spirit that was saturation bombardment advertising strategies back in the day, decorations, music, store people that had disney like grins spray painted on there faces permanently, the insesent carrots blasted from every speaker any where you went...
its the anticipation of the final outcome that is incapable. when december hits i see unfold, lights trees decorated, and so on.. My issue is that on that cursed day. it didn't matter how good id been or if id been a complete mongrel, it always ended with me scared as hell, sobbing, tear blurred vision, from day long procession of violence that was Christmas, and my birthday... he didn't need a specific trigger so to speak,noe did my mother, one followed the instigator and merely blocked hasty exit attempts, or joined in once the other paused to catch a breath...As soon as the first round had bee administer, the focus for the remainder of the day would be solely about the other 2 siblings.
a few times i sucked it upon, and true dot do anything that would maybe win owe a reprieve from the next inevitable onslaught, but to no, always more.. So i fake did from the age of 5 onwards, fake smiles fake thank you, fake i just want vomit these putrud words out... Merry Christmas.. vile..
at 13 i was numb, started working 12 part time clean up boy in a butchers shop. firstpaycheck was sat down at the table by the father and was informed how the world worked, an honest days work gets an honest days pay! Fair enough i thought, then was informed that what i held in my hand was what made the world work. out of the $20 that sat before me $8 disappeared to Bored an Lodgings.
I was also rewarded with the added responsibility that i would now do my own laundry supplies paid for by me, and would be doing most of the household chores since my scholastically gifted brothers were full-time students, who's higher pursuits obviously prevented them from such meagre trivialities....
This new found independence bought new social networks, sowhen soon after my father issued an ultimatum The my house my rules, don't like it leave deal, i said challenge accepted and was gone that day no family contact for 5 years. wasn't easy nearly homeless many times but is stuck it out, couldn't bare the thought of having to listen too him saying one you never make it..Fast forward many, many, years, and decades of painfilled decembers, and here we are, the triggers are all out in force and building, now ove the years iv tried to mask my internal hell to outsiders, where this subject comes up i leave i dontanswer, i reply with i don't acknowledge the day, which is always triggers others!! what do you mean dome acknowledge the day? i reply with for my reasons that i would rather not go into,{but always get asked too v\can't be that bad is most popular reply}
i just simply decline and leave, and by live i mean i will get up from a dinner table, exit an event a gathering doesn't matter, its fight or flight. they have no clue and i figure it better for the rot him\nk I'm a weirdo than mew even begin too enter the key to the locker The Hoover Dam of emotional damage i have barely contained with its walls... It bothers me that others, in the rare times ill give condensed version of my trauma, that they still push what they think i should feel to ease there non comprehension, not what i need or suggest as a massive compromise ion my part, participating in there events and the like..
Its not my origen Day, its the other day. never was my day, and frankly I'm fine with that. The whole concept died when i was 5, i have been averting it, and working towards obliterating it from my life ever since and that is many many decades ago. I've tried therapy, and have gotten no real tools to help me, add a 20 methanphetmine addiction, and daily alcohol consumption,which i can't believe i made it through, i rack dup $100 in personal debt and paid it off every cent it was good to make restitution for my self destructive behaviour.. And so i do the very best i can every day. Ive been clean since 2015, no relapses, just cold turkey, no therapy sessions couldn't get a place in any programs they were maxed, again no friends to call on chat, just me and my inner dialog and i would talk outlaid constantly debating all things. encounters situations and al there innate outcomes...
i know that my recent attempts to disatcosiate myself from everyone elses plans are already being ignored..
Thats a major hate i have to just be dismissed, with the you'll be ok don't worry about it, overtones..
My partner is an angle, we have a great life together, she's from another country, scarfed her adult family, friends, lifestyle to make a life here with me. It defiantly hasn't been easy for her, and i constantly sruggke with ione daybed all becomes to much, for her and she tells me that she can't do it anymore, and that she must leave... Even with this daily torment in my head. I wake up blessed each and every day i have her in my life. Thanks be..
I have told her every wretched tea\tail about my addiction, she only showered me with love not judgment.THat was one of the first times in over 20 years of being alone, no family no real friends, just me and my inner me. That i had hope for the future and that i may get the normal life i had daydreamed about when i was blasted out on drugs.. Have that life now.. But I'm still haunted at this time of year.
my partner absolutely loves the whole deal the tree the lights the food, all the things that to me only have one meaning. Im going to have a very bad day,there will no joyous memories, only flashes if bloodshot age exile eyes, full off resentment, and the last thing that would ring in my head after there chaotic garage ended was now go to your room you Christmas Birthday FuckUp...Keep in mind this fury could be unleashed at between 5/7am until after dark. GO to your room meant that where you stayed the whole day no food, just toilet trips and i would sneak water when i washed my hands.. I hate that day, but i know deep down my feelings don't matter, for that day is for everyone else but me.. it gives me great anxiety, and the urges to go back to the only thing in the world that accepted me for me [Meth] But know what i will loose, thats what i block it wth, but dam come so close to who gives a fk..i refrain..
So ill just pull on that Fake face an drudge through the day..
solely to me. not even on another day, its not mine, that would just be waste of ever bodies time. So no, it is what it is..im frankly uncomfortable when I'm at anyone else...
I'm sorry to ramble on, i just feel so lost, as I'm recovering from surgery currently, I'm even more despondent than usual. Cant afford to get real therapy, Fighting the urges to hit the bottle, or worse, and thats a big battle daily, i choose not to use,, I'm just kinda white knuckle riding the bucking bull that will eventually build till critical mass,where i will fall silent let the day unfold around me, and see everyones early hidden disappointment and vile contempt for yet another shitty day with my miserable ass.
I dont know how to engage in this hellish day, and survive unscathed untriggered, and without destroying the day for everyone else.. Im so fkn tired of it all... I'm lost and empty..If anyone has read to this point,thank you.
If anyone could maybe offer some suggestions , that may help me cope, id be very very grateful...
Thank you for reading.

2020.11.26 05:39 Super-Nautilus Thanksgiving 2020: Slightly Less Empty Than Last Year

Thanksgiving 2020. How many of us actually thought we’d make it this far? Some of us didn’t, but for those of us left, we should be thankful that we’re still alive. I know I am.
Thanksgiving 2019 was the worst on record. My fiancée had broken off our engagement and our relationship, but still lived with me while we sorted out how we were going to go our separate ways. I was so full of heartbreak and pain that I wanted to die. Months went by where every day I had to keep myself from wanting to jump off a cliff. I didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving and I didn’t celebrate Christmas. It’s hard to be in the spirit for either holiday when you’re resisting the urge to completely succumb to despair and kill yourself. It got so bad that I looked up what to do if you have suicidal thoughts. I was so spooked by the places my mind was going to that a steady diet of Disney+ kept me from the brink.
I only got some semblance of closure when I found out that my ex-fiancée was suffering badly as a result of her having destroyed what I thought was a beautiful relationship. She did it so blithely and so remorselessly just so that she could hook up with someone else to bolster her career, a career that’s just as much of a joke as it always was. I told the truth about how much she had hurt me and destroyed my life to everyone I knew and that helped bring about her just karmic punishment, which in turn helped me find something resembling closure. But let it be known that she has made herself a very devoted enemy and I am committed to helping bring about her continued suffering and eventual destruction, if she doesn’t beat me to it given how self-destructive she is.
Anyway, many job losses and apartment moves later, a small kitten showed up on my doorstep exactly one year after my ex-fiancée destroyed my life. That kitten, who I named Ash because he’s a little black kitten, helped to heal my heart because I know he will be eternally faithful and loving. He won’t betray me or lie to me because animals can’t lie. I am eternally thankful for him and I’m thankful to be alive in spite of the nightmare that has been 2020. He’d have died if it hadn’t been for me, but he actually rescued me. Despair is such a powerful temptation every day, especially when you have a broken heart. But having a truly unconditional love in your life, from a kitten or a human, is enough to rescue you from the yawning abyss, inviting as it may appear.
Someday I’d love to find an unconditional, everlasting love from a human woman that could match or exceed the love I receive from Ash. I don’t see how that’s possible given how willfully ignorant, selfish, and dishonest most people are and the continued pandemic inhibiting any and all means of conventional dating. But Ash showing up when he did, virtually gift-wrapped for me since I’d always wanted a little black kitten, let me know that maybe the universe or God or fate or whatever you want to call it isn’t so cruel and malevolent after all. The timing was too perfect and the circumstances were too exact for it to be a coincidence.
I operated under the belief that God/fate/the universe actively sought to taunt me and make me suffer for his/heits own amusement ever since I was a teenager. It felt like it was very much that way for almost fifteen years. But as I look back on my life, all the experiences I’ve had, the resilience I’ve attained, my willingness to fight doggedly for my own interests and perspectives, and having pulling myself out of the abyss on more than one occasion have perhaps been part of a grander plan to toughen me up so I could become my own fiercest advocate and defender. Ash showing up when he did was perhaps a way of saying that the child-like belief in everlasting, true love wasn’t such a foolish dream after all, but also that it can’t be forced. It will come when it’s ready and I have to continually better myself in the meantime.
That’s what I’m interpreting it to mean, anyway. I still have to fight all the pervasively bad thoughts that flood into my brain whenever I think about the subject, such as:
“Who’d want to be with you?” “You’re a nobody!” “You’re too ___!” “You’re not ___ enough!”
Those pervasively bad thoughts don’t flood into my brain with nearly the same frequency as they once did though, because they used to appear all the time in all areas of my life. Their frequency deteriorated as soon as I decided to stop hating myself. It got me nowhere and the way I got out of it was by removing from my life all the people and situations that were bringing me down and impeding my growth. Almost instantly I felt better. Now I’ve coupled those actions with active efforts towards self improvement in all fronts. I haven’t reached self love per se because that can be a very dangerous place to be, but self respect is such a precious and much more desirable commodity. It means that you won’t allow anyone to think that they can fuck with you and get away with it. It means fighting for your own interests and your own well-being with the same ferocity that you would’ve previously fought for the interests of your significant other. It means seeing yourself as an autonomous individual who has value and continually fostering that value. All of this is new to me, but it’s possible now that I’m free and working my ass off every day to make my dreams come true now that I don’t have anyone to hold me back.
I’m not sure if anyone out there can relate to this story or if someone would potentially want someone like that romantically, but I can only speak to the truth of my experience and fight for its validity. But that’s why I’m thankful to still be alive despite being without a romantic partner in the hellscape that is 2020.

2020.11.26 05:08 caprizonica Naya Rivera: A Film Critic’s Appreciation of a TV Star

Found this article about Naya, for those fans of her a film critic does a count of Naya´s charms as a performer.
Naya Rivera: A Film Critic’s Appreciation of a TV Star
The Couch Tamale Jul 23·16 min read
I was much older than the target demographic for ‘Glee’, but I watched it semi-faithfully for these reasons: A) the intentionally diverse casting and primetime representation of many marginalized groups B) the clever reinvention and integration of pop songs and C) Naya Rivera.
Truth be told, since the show could be so wildly uneven, Rivera was often the ‘A’ reason I tuned in, always hoping she’d get a scene or a number.
Naya Rivera portrayed Santana, the tart-tongued (to put it mildly) captain of Glee’s cheerleading squad. By casting an Afro-Latina actress in the part, the show’s producers were already trouncing on stereotypes; by the year of the show’s debut, curtly dismissive cheerleaders were a staple of teen-centered entertainment, but they were usually white and hetero. As the show progressed, Santana fell for her teammate Brittany, came out to her family and friends, graduated from high school, tried to make her way in the big city, and eventually married Brittany. As a queer Latinx young woman with entrenched defense mechanisms, the character of Santana had to bear a lot of ‘representation’ duty, like an extended cheerleading ‘shoulder sit.’ But here’s the thing: Naya Rivera made it all seem as if it were as easy as a pony-tail toss.
Re-watching the early episodes, with Santana barely getting a cutaway, it’s easy to believe Ryan Murphy that the producers didn’t realize the size of talent they had on their hands when they first cast her. Rivera didn’t so much fight for more screen time as her talent compelled it, willed it. She’s mostly background in the first few episodes, until Santana and Brittany (Heather Morris) get drafted by Jane Lynch’s villainous cheer coach Sue Sylvester (the show does not lack for antagonists) to infiltrate the new Glee club and destroy it from within. From her earliest numbers and ultra-snippy encounters with the other kids, Rivera’s Santana starts to steal scenes.
This wasn’t just a function of the writing and directing. In fact, as clever, campy, sincere and delectably witty as ‘Glee’ could be (rewatching it this week, I chuckled at lots of throwaway lines) it could also be clumsy and over-reliant on whimsy and parody, sometimes in the same scene. In order to make the repeated point that Santana was caustically tough on the outside because she was hiding deep anxiety on the inside, the writers gave her so many withering and cruel things to say that emotional reality was often sacrificed on the altar of ‘Bitchy Quirkiness’ and frankly, because you imagined the writers were cracking themselves up at the saltiness of their latest insult. (Some were classics; too many of them hung on the lower rungs of humor, including easy body function jokes.)
But here’s the next thing: no matter how ridiculously florid the abuse Santana hurled at a classmate or teacher, Naya Rivera delivered the lines with alacrity and impeccable timing. And that’s what really made me sit up on my sofa and take notice.
Here was an actress who seemed to have the range of the marquee women from Hollywood’s ‘Golden Age’ of the 30s and 40s. The tumble of words the ‘Glee’ writers gave her didn’t faze her; she could deliver them with the rapid screwball comedy chops of Rosalind Russell or Jean Arthur. In an era of more tentative, introspective actors, Rivera had the steely drive of Bette Davis or Joan Crawford. Her larcenous way with a wry line was reminiscent of the great character actress Thelma Ritter; her ‘brassiness’ recalled Joan Blondell; the blaze in her eyes felt like the one emanating from Ida Lupino. (The comparisons had a visual equivalent — Rivera’s red-carpet personal style often favored form-fitting pencil skirts, modern iterations of a forties ‘dame.’)
Probably no greater compliment I can give is to say Rivera reminded me of the legendary Barbara Stanwyck. Able to navigate romantic comedy, drama and detective noir with husky-voiced fervor, Stanwyck could be devastating when she was furious yet hard to resist when she worked her charms. She was slight of figure but imposing of presence. Rivera had those cinematic assets as well. Because she started as a child actor, on ‘The Royal Family’ and especially on the great ‘The Bernie Mac Show’, by the time she got to ‘Glee’ she knew how to work a camera, as self-possessed and confident in her talents as Stanwyck was. Why this is important is that when an actor is too self-critical or tentative, we get uncomfortable or pulled out of the story. Reading testimonials from her cast mates (Chris Colfer says he sometimes was so in awe of her performance he’d forget he was in the scene with her) we see they also marveled at her self-assurance, and Rivera cannily used it to make Santana both poised and poignant.
Where Naya Rivera carved out her own space, different from most of our past silver-screen sirens, is that she could sing, and she was Afro-Latina, multi-racial, far from the whites-only casting of the Warner Brothers and MGM eras. That meant something to me; as a Chicano man of a certain age, I can remember times when I was a kid when my family would count all the ‘Latin’ movie stars we could think of and we often stopped literally with the fingers of one hand.
As someone who studies and loves writing about film, my head was nearly scratched raw from trying to figure out why Naya Rivera wasn’t swooped up from ‘Glee’ by the 2010s studio gatekeepers and given the chance to be a film superstar in vehicles that were worthy of her, bypassing the B-movie stage. She didn’t even get the big-screen ‘best friend’ parts in Hudson or Witherspoon rom-coms, which is what actresses of color with comic chops were often relegated to in the 2000s. Why this oversight happened, and I’m sure there’s a lot of background showbiz politics and personal reasons as to why, the result is we were denied someone who could have been a major screen star and given us the pleasure of an above-the-title, singing-dancing-acting triple-threat. If Rivera had been white, the big-screen star-making machinery would have overcome all obstacles to not just take a risk on her, but bet on her.
It really felt like Naya Rivera could do it all. Stanwyck and Davis had formidable talents, but singing wasn’t considered one of them, so that made Rivera a modern-day extension of their bravura, as though they’d been reincarnated in a child actress who was bristling at the confines of Disney channel and tv screens.
And Rivera had that voice! Some of us have our own version of a sort of ‘opposite ASMR’; we derive pleasure from singers who have a husky rasp in their voice, and rather than whisper, know how to belt. In this regard, Naya Rivera was a godsend. It gave her the ability to tackle songs associated with Tina Turner and Amy Winehouse and Stevie Nicks, no small feat. Yet Rivera could also narrow the grit in her wide voice to just a few flecks of hurt and hope, as in the poignant moment when she confesses her love to Brittany in a plaintive version of Christine McVie and Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Songbird.’ (This will sound like sacrilege to other Fleetwood Mac fans — I’ve seen the band in concert many times — but I just never really responded to McVie’s performance of her song except in cool, admiring ways. But I found Rivera’s vulnerable cooing of the song transfixing.)
Rivera’s musical performances on ‘Glee’ traversed many genres, but nothing seemed to catch her off-guard. I enjoyed many of the singers on ‘Glee’ —the show had over 700 musical numbers! — but if Rivera was given the lead, you knew you were about to get a showstopper, complete with signature focus, considerable ebullience and precision as a dancer. These gifts were captured best when ‘Glee’s’ hyper-active camera and editing stood still and just let her perform.
Rivera tackled Turner’s ‘Nutbush City Limits’ with ferocity. It’s too bad that the way she was filmed — with the aforementioned slice-and-dice, even leering editing — forever leaves us with a case of ‘what might have been.’ We get precious snippets of seeing Rivera singing, while the musical filming style of ten years ago, influenced by ‘Moulin Rouge’ and ‘Chicago’, attempts to whip us into an erotic frenzy with close-ups of halter-top abs and pom-pom zooms. This was a shameful miscalculation, because it has the opposite effect. If the camera had just stood planted and simply recorded the performance, Naya Rivera would have delivered the sexual fire and then some.
The best musical numbers with Rivera showcase all her talents — the ability to act out a lyric, the Fosse-flavored choreography, and a singing voice alternately tender and roof-raising. Her performance of Winehouse’s ‘Valerie’, in which she gets to ditch the ‘Cheerios’ uniform and stomp the stage in a party frock stands out as one of ‘Glee’s’ best and most effortless songs overall — it really looks like a romp that captures teenage brio and which would be electric to see live. (Later in the show, when Rivera sings ‘Back to Black’, you even got a glimpse that, as criminal as it might seem to suggest to purists, there’s a helluva Amy Winehouse jukebox Broadway musical waiting in the wings somewhere, and Rivera could have easily been its star.)
As commanding as Naya Rivera could be as a solo singer, her duets were full of a delicious tension. The job in a duet is to share the scene as democratically as possible while still bringing out the best in your partner and elevating the song. These were skills many in the cast had, though they occasionally had to juggle the meta-element that when the show became a phenomenon, the behind-the-scenes who-likes-who, who-hates-who gossip that fascinated early social media audiences could be at odds to the show’s scripted plot (though it seems the show’s creative team also deliberately worked the real-life stuff into the fictional stuff. A notable example of this was when Rivera and Lea Michele, who were rumored and since confirmed to be clashing backstage personalities — and as recent reports show, Rivera wasn’t the only one to find Michele difficult — sing a sweet song called ‘Be Okay’, almost as though they were ordered to by the network. Both are thoroughly professional, and by the end you don’t just think that maybe Santana and Rachel are really friends, but that Rivera and Michele had buried all their hatchets in a Fox studio wall as well.)
The duet partner for Santana I liked best was provided by one of ‘Glee’s’ other volcanic vocalists, Amber Riley. As Riley has since shown in her London West End role as Effie in ‘Dreamgirls’, and in TV productions of ‘The Wiz’ and ‘The Little Mermaid’, she is a formidable talent. Yet watch one of their songs together, ‘The Boy is Mine’, and see if your eyes don’t want to stay just watching Rivera’s performance in its entirety?
To see a more dynamic and perfectly matched dual performance, ‘Glee’ gave us the galvanic gift that is Amber Riley and Naya Rivera alternating and harmonizing into their own ‘wall of sound’ on the Tina Turner classic, ‘River Deep Mountain High.’ Turners vocals on the original are so singular, nothing can touch them. Just the way she crests the first line with a jagged crag in the middle of a note lets you know this is going to be sung from a place of both ache and power.
The ‘Glee’ version leans into the power angle. Santana and Mercedes brim with the ‘girlpower’ term used at the time, the youthful brio of being able to dream of scaling mountains. The choreography then counter-points and really gets it right by giving the singers the dance moves reminiscent of 60s girl-groups, and while it starts out sort of cute and ironic, by the end the choreography becomes mature and electrifying. When Riley sings the first verse, she has gospel runs and exquisite phrasing. She could easily overwhelm anyone. Rivera’s choice is to find her own place to put the appealing but melancholy cracks in her voice, harmonize beautifully, and then release her own blasts of power. The performance says more about ‘empowerment’ than pages of script could. ‘River Deep Mountain High’ is also notable for giving Rivera a chance to be charming in ways she usually didn’t get to be with all her ‘mean girls’ posing; when they get to the part about the ‘rag doll’, both singers mug, but Rivera’s brief clownishness when acting out that rag doll is unexpectedly loose and charming.
Of course, the journey for Santana on the show, and you’ll find many ‘Glee’ fans and pop culture critics who will argue that the show ultimately was about Santana, crucially centers on the classic ‘finding your voice’ view of young adulthood, and central to that, the relationship between Santana and Brittany. Nearly any news or lifestyle site of the past week that had a space for pop culture featured the heartbroken, deeply affected voices of many lesbians and queer people writing about the deep connection they felt towards the relationship and the visibility and identification it gave them.
Of more than passing interest, depending on how transgressive you thought of it, was the pairing between an Afro-Latina character and a white blonde cheerleader who could have stepped out of the background of a Taylor Swift video. Think of where we were in 2009 and that still would have been pushing boundaries. (The show was one of the first to normalize same-gender kisses.)
In Rivera’s scenes with her non-accepting Abuela (the great Ivonne Coll), she is as real as it gets — not only deeply hurt, but uncomprehending in the way so many gay kids can be when they are rejected simply because of their orientation. “But I’m the same person I was a minute ago.” One can imagine these scenes (and the contrapuntal ones between Kurt and his more accepting father) provided a lifeline to young queer people themselves caught up in the process of making decisions about how to come out, and in particular, to Latinx queer people, who found representation and resources hard to come by and certainly not in the media.
And in real life, Rivera, who did not identify as gay, proved to be a significant ally. She responded to queer fans, particularly young women, and she represented by hosting the GLAAD media awards, advocating for The Trevor Project and by speaking responsibly and articulately about what her fans had confessed to her.
The way the show frequently featured LGBTQ imagery was playful and willful. They weren’t representing all queer women; they were representing these two using a particular transgressive iconography. Teen lesbian cheerleaders weren’t invented with ‘Glee’; the queer film ‘But I’m a Cheerleader’ was released in 1999. But by keeping Santana (as well as the other ‘Cheerios’) in their squad outfits 24/7, Rivera started to look like it wasn’t just her cheer attire, it was her superhero uniform. You have your masked and fully-covered marvels; here was a fearless teen titan in sleeveless emblematic mini-skirt cutting through the hallways. Her superpowers? A withering glare that could refreeze the Arctic, an ability to shoot insults like a laser beam, and a pinkie-finger-linking with Britney that could heal your heart. Most of all, a voice that could fill a canyon and fleet feet that could leap over all calamity.
Until she couldn’t. When superheroes die, mere mortals look to the sky and feel, perhaps unreasonably but still undeniably, abandoned. Shocked, stunned, grievous. We look backward, because looking forward has just been removed as an option, and the realization of what will never be is too excruciating.
I couldn’t figure out what happened to Naya Rivera after ‘Glee’, given my hopes and expectations. She released quite a catchy single, ‘Sorry’, and later a memoir, ‘Sorry (Not Sorry.’) I didn’t realize she had joined a new show, the Youtube continuation of the ‘Step Up’ series, but now I do and she’s terrific in it. But to those of us who dropped our eyes from her a bit, I just remember it was because it seemed like there was tabloid stuff, personal tumult, a few seemingly misguided appearances or comments here or there. I was a hopeful, hopeful fan of her talent, not slavish to any TMZ notorieties — but those great female stars of the 30s and 40s? They were no strangers to splashy headlines either.
When I did watch ‘Turner Classics’ or my library of DVDS with some of those ‘Golden Age’ actresses, more than a few times I’d think of Rivera, search IMDB to see if she was getting that Oscar-worthy role yet. Or when there were increasing public discussions that called for better representation of people of color in media, I’d think: Naya Rivera! What’s she doing now? Why isn’t she in a big movie, headed for her superstardom? How did Hollywood’s famously white-screen blindness eclipse even gifts this generous?
So I’d check in the way we do now, with her IG feed or in passing hear about the occasional tweet. There would be a picture of her beauty, sometimes posed in the ‘sexy’ currency that builds and keeps ‘followers’ entranced and ‘promotes content.’
But occasionally Naya would post a picture with her son Josey, who she eventually was raising as a single mom. As many of her followers saw, in those fateful days of early July, I ‘liked’ a beautifully tender picture with Mom and Josey, eyelash close, captioned ‘Just the two of us.’ It seemed so peaceful. This must be what she wants to be doing, I thought. Happy for her. One of the miracles of ‘Glee’ was how they put on hour-long musicals once a week for six years, with 18-hour days. Who could begrudge anyone some rest after that?
But selfishly I also still wanted that album, that movie, that new film directed by her, something more from the force of nature that is, was, Naya Rivera and I gave more than a passing thought that with today’s reckonings, with greater sensitivity to the racism that undergirded so many institutions, the world would finally open up to her in the way it did for so many white actresses before her. It was her time.
Until it wasn’t.
That’s hard to reconcile. We’re supposed to say, as fans from afar, our grief is nothing compared to that of her family, friends, cast mates and of course that’s true. But it’s also true that the grief of a fan is not nothing. Those of us who didn’t know her personally, but were in awe of her talent, shouldn’t shut feelings of loss down. I think it honors Naya Rivera to mourn publicly the way so many fans have, ‘Gleeks’ or not. She was someone who had such hard-won achievement yet still such potential. And for some reason, the power brokers that be didn’t see it or find a place for it in time. We can grieve that mistake, and that which can’t be brought back or won’t be left as a long-career legacy.
That someone with so much soulful presence could suddenly disappear from this earth, at a time when we are all so careful not to lose each other, was wrenching. In consolation, I turned to a lot of Rivera’s performances from the show, though now of course they all carry a melancholy, stinging twinge. (For more on this, just look at the many comments on the pages where the videos are originally posted.)
You hear Naya Rivera sing Winehouse, and it’s hard not to think of how they both died young. You see her love for Brittany acted so convincingly, you think about Heather Morris, the actress who played her and wonder how she will weather this — thoughts that are none of your business, but you still have them. I found myself thinking of Kevin McHale who played ‘Artie’ on the show, and who seems so clear-headed; what would he say? You read Chris Colfer’s tribute to her and shed more than a few tears. You hear her sing ‘If I Die Young’ in tribute to Corey Monteith, and you recall that Rivera’s body was finally found on the day that Monteith died. It’s a lot.
There’s a memorable moment in the early run when Monteith’s Finn stops Santana in the familiar Glee alley of lockers and linoleum. She’s annoyed that he has outed her, and indeed he’s done her wrong. But the character is also written as sincere. Finn’s logic may be that of a teenager’s but he tells Santana that he didn’t ‘out’ her to hurt her, but to help her realize that she would still be accepted. He’d heard of someone who recorded an ‘It Gets Better’ video but later killed himself. He doesn’t want that to happen to her; ‘you mean something to me.’ He tells her that if something ever happened to her and he didn’t do everything in his power to stop it, he could never live with himself. Santana is left speechless at the tenderness, even as she’s furious — Rivera could convey both in a single look.
The context we have now in 2020 makes the brief scene heavy with portent and sadness. In actuality, Rivera was saddened that she couldn’t do more to stop Monteith’s untimely death from a drug overdose. That would be subtext enough. But now, with the timing of her death and the anniversary of his? It’s shattering. But I kept watching, and there was something that reminded me of my own experience teaching high school. A few minutes later, or a few episodes later, the kids are singing and dancing and throwing ‘Big Quenches’ at each other, and seldom has the show’s mission to show the fullness of life seemed so clear. I’ve found that to be true when I’ve gone through difficult times, or my school has, and still had to walk through the classroom door. No matter how sad I’ve been, there’s always a student offering, well, cheer.
Maybe we did get the movie Naya Rivera was on this earth to make after all. Because that scene between Santana and Finn was early in the show’s run. By ‘Glee’s’ end several years later, Santana didn’t hurt herself. She survived high school, she stumbled a little but recovered, she found her way, she was able to get onstage at a Broadway audition and sing ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade’ and give us a big, big moment of triumph; maybe she’ll get the part, she’s definitely going to get the girl. Just like an old musical.
And that’s why I wrote this: we talk about ‘Glee’ as a TV show, but maybe it was one long film. If you go back and watch ‘Glee’ with a particular focus on Rivera, you’ll see an extraordinary rise-and-fall-and-rise-again achievement; she’s one of the major leads of an epic. Sure it’s a movie full of silliness, toss-aways, occasional meanderings or repetitive plotlines, but it’s also full of heart and compassion. This seasons-long coming-of-age starred this African/Latina/Queer Ally/Queen who reigned with a crackling laugh, a stunning beauty and vivacious spirit.
If that’s all we were fated to get of Naya Rivera, she hit her mark — the line where enough and not enough meet. Maybe the silvery phantoms of Bette Davis, Rosalind Russell, Joan Crawford and Barbara Stanwyck, who all knew their own injustices within the Hollywood system, maybe they were all waiting in the wings as she sang the curtain down. “Come on kid,” they might say, in old movie parlance. “You went out there a youngster but you came back: a Star!”

2020.11.26 01:27 PokingDogSnouts 30 [M4F] New Jersey — Where have all the flowers gone?

I'd like to find somebody thoughtful, someone who isn't superficial. Somebody who appreciates the rich vastness of our cultural past, and freely follows her curiosity in exploring it. Somebody who is trying her best to adhere to the guidance of her inner moral compass, and isn't so easily fooled by the distractions and illusions of the world.
I'd also love it if she were artistic. Writing, sketching, painting, singing, composing, creating. Someone who is trying to nurture their talents and passions. I know it can be difficult...
Lastly, somebody on a quest for truth. There are spiritual layers to existence—I have no doubt in my mind about that. The answers aren't easy, and aren't going to be given to you in just one book—maybe not even in just one lifetime. But I would love it if I could find somebody who shares this mode of thinking.
As for me, well... I adore music. Mostly voices from the past, because I find them to be humbler and more from the heart. If you go back to early 1920s country music... (Here's an aside: a lot of what people think of as "country" today is a long cry from what the genre is actually like, historically. If you are into folk music—Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan—it is indelibly linked to "country", and if you'd like a popular example of a song that originated within the genre, look no further than the universally recognized "You Are My Sunshine", from 1939!)
Anyway. If you go back to that early period, where undiscovered niches of music were still sought out and first put to tape... a lot of those artists had no idea about anything to do with recording—no ego, no attempt to sound "cool". What came through instead was a bare expression of the life that had been lived—the inner beauty of their own personhood, and I love hearing that. It's so honest. A vulnerable and piercing expression.
So if you're into history or the beautiful music of decades (and centuries) past, if you have any aspirations for creating as a method of changing the world for the better, if you're learning a new language (I'm learning Italian!), if you'd like to watch movies and play games together, if you'd like an accountability partner—or all of the above...please message me. I don't mind the chat function either—in fact, it's probably easier.
I, myself, love beautiful things. Nature, music that tugs at your heartstrings or is so honest you're just enraptured, experiences that heal. I meditate, I sing and am learning guitar, I love to draw. More specifically, here are some of my current interests:
I really want an intelligent friend with personality, a unique identity...who puts forth effort, who takes an interest in me—my goals and my life—just as I will do for them! Please send me a PM or chat message if you're interested. And you can check my previous posts/comments to learn more about me. Thank you.

2020.11.26 01:17 PokingDogSnouts 30 [M4F] Sing a little, dream a little. 🌟

Hello, *squints down at paper* prospective friend who is taking the time to read my thoughts.
I'd like to open by thanking you for passing your eyes over these letters I've clinked out on my little laptop keyboard. They've traveled a long way to get to you.
What I'm looking for is somebody who is thoughtful, curious, and open-minded. Who possesses an insatiable appetite for knowledge, and art, and learning, and reading—fitting as much into their mental suitcase as they can cram (and believe me, it appears to hold a lot)!
Sometimes these things aren't easy. But with a friend beside you to motivate, encourage, and inspire you—suddenly, anything might become possible!
So if you're into history or the beautiful music of decades (and centuries) past, if you have any aspirations for creating as a method of changing the world for the better, if you're learning a new language (I'm learning Italian!), if you'd like to watch movies and play games together, if you'd like an accountability partner—or all of the above...please message me. I don't mind the chat function either—in fact, it's probably easier.
I, myself, love beautiful things. Nature, music that tugs at your heartstrings or is so honest you're just enraptured, experiences that heal. I meditate, I sing and am learning guitar, I love to draw. More specifically, here are some of my current interests:
I really want an intelligent friend with personality, a unique identity...who puts forth effort, who takes an interest in me—my goals and my life—just as I will do for them! Please send me a PM or chat message if you're interested. And you can check my previous posts/comments to learn more about me. Thank you.

2020.11.25 19:51 yourenotquiteme So tired of dating

A lot of people can relate to this mindset but I find dating, romance, and just being around people in general to be exhausting. I'm a woman and chose sterilization because I didn't want kids. I have no regrets at all. I also knew that aside from not wanting children, I didn't want the same guy stuck in my face until I'm dead. Marriages can be happy but most of the people that I know are unhappy or bored with their partner.

Who wants a dead bedroom? Most of the guys who talk to me on Reddit are unhappily married. They're not ass holes for saying that they miss their freedom. That's a relevant need. I feel like marriage just strips you of happiness, at the end of the day. Of course there's bills to be paid and adult responsibilities. It can't be all fun and games but routine is dreadful to me.

I don't fear dying alone or not sharing experiences with that special person for two reasons: 1) I'm not alone. I have friends and family. People also seem to like me more often than I like them, so when I open up, I make friends easily. And 2) You can't get everything you need from one person. Affairs happen because boredom sets in. Boredom sets in because people need change and adventure. I know there are people who are happy with a sedate existence. I also know some people have morals that they feel they need to uphold. Fine. I'm just saying that monogamy gets boring.

And when it comes to dating? Well, I'm tired of that, too. As a woman, it's usually perceived as us being the ones looking to settle down. The thought actually makes me uncomfortable. I know that I can't be happy with just one person. I also know that I don't want an open relationship because that entails still explaining where I go and with whom I'm doing it, and blah, blah, fucking blah. Why can't I just have my fun and friendships that are close and entail sexual contact, sometimes? Has society really engrained in us the outdated notion that sex and romance are the same? Are we really to believe there is that one special person in the whole world, just for us? Who decided that? It sounds like a Disney princess film.

People can connect on many levels and we will feel connections many times with different people in our lifetimes. I don't want to be tied down to one person to experience connections, to have fun, to be free. Clip my wings, why don't you? I had to get this off my chest because no one I know understands. My friend is married to a woman with the personality of a wet sponge and he's still trying to convince himself he's happy, despite their lack of a sex life and her cold personality. That's what happens when you're desperate. My mom is hung up on a guy who only visits once a week and has a wife back in Africa, but he LoVeS her, right? OK. My other friend is so bored with his wife that they sleep in different rooms now! My aunt and uncle are always nitpicking and I haven't seen either of them unstressed and happy in years. 5 kids and 0 happiness. No thanks.

The other reason I'm tired of dating, besides the other person expecting this to end in a walk down the aisle or some hokey shit, everyone, myself included, comes with their problems. We all have baggage and usually that baggage is family that I have zero interest in seeing. How many of us can honestly say we don't have crazy relatives that we only want to see on holidays, and sometimes not even then? Every single guy and girl I have ever dated has family that they think should be locked up some where.

And if they're not overzealous in whatever they believe in, be it religion or politics, then they're backhanded nice. Drop compliments that aren't really compliments, being passive aggressive, the usual. No one ever really accepts you into their clan, that's why people have so much trouble with their in-laws. No matter how great you are, you are almost never good enough for your partner, according to their family. Now, certain in-laws get along, and that's great, but again, there's so much evidence to the contrary. Talk to your friends or family. Read about it in books or online. They actually have sections in bookstores on how to deal with in-laws.

I'm selfish, I put my happiness first, and I'm aware of it and honest about it. However, I'm not sorry. I'm a good friend when they need me. I'm my mother's only ally because my family is dysfunctional and she has no one to talk to. I don't shit on the relationships of people I know, at least not to their faces. I'm telling you guys because I have no way of saying what I really think without them falling apart over it. It really helped to admit this. I'd rather have fun and no attachments. Sue me.

2020.11.25 14:44 Lun3zz I (27F) keep finding my WSO (28M) liking sexually explicit content while we’re still trying to recover from his infidelity

I found the whisper app on my fiancé’s phone around our 8 year anniversary, a little over a year ago. To set the scene, we are madly in love, very sexually active (at least once a day), 6 months engaged, planning a wedding, and just got back from Disney world, where he surprised me with a trip for my birthday. We have been living together maybe 6 or 7 years and have been attached at the hip since we met.
He had been acting very weird and the vibe had felt off for a few days and I had asked him a few times if he was cheating on me and denied it. One night I looked through his phone and am thinking that I’m being crazy and paranoid and really just feeling so lucky because he’s such a good guy and idk whyy I was even doing this, he would never do anything to wrong me. So feeling that way, I’m about to put the phone down and I look in this folder and there’s an empty page and then one with just this app. For those who aren’t aware, it’s an app where you anonymously post about whatever you want and people give advice, what have you, but everything is anonymous. I’m thinking omg maybe he’s really depressed about something, why didn’t he reach out to me? (I found a really depressing poem written in the notes, so I’m concerned and want to know what he’s feeling so I can make him feel better.) I instantly just see nudes, him sending out and exchanging pictures with other girls, saying super nasty stuff, things we said to each other. Things he said to me, he was saying to this random girls. I just went kind of out of body at this point with insane adrenaline rush and started going through Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, I found all these other apps, tons of nasty conversations and pictures being exchanged, subscribed to Snapchat premiums, talking to girls on kik, like you name it, he was on it. I found these going as far as a year back, as recent as the day before, before I decided to stop looking. I’m super shocked because we are pretty much inseparable, and he had told me before that he didn’t watch porn, just when he was a kid, which I believe because 1.) we are almost always together, 2.) we have sex AT LEAST once a day, usually multiple times a day, and 3.) I never saw it ever and not sure when he’d even have time to watch it. Also never would have believed he had the capacity to cheat on me, I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it with my own eyes. He’s the type of guy who wouldn’t even have sex with someone if he wasn’t in a relationship with them or at least working toward it. I disagree with that and he’s always been really stern with his opinions. We have done plenty of sexual exploration and I’ve been told after the fact that I gave him too much freedom and not enough boundaries, which I get, but also makes me feel weird because I’m not his parents. Anyway, I call him out on it and he lies and lies and denies everything and I hate liars and am that type of person who can research shit like the fbi, so I obviously knew everything already and he should have know. I just wanted him to be honest with me and just explain to me why. Just was kind of in denial after that because I don’t even know this person. I’m originally from the east coast and moved to the south with my parents as a teenager, where I later met him. My family was moving back home and we were going to go with them. After d-day I told him I was going and he could come if he wanted to work on our relationship but he wasn’t going to keep me there. He decided to come, with everything that came with moving across the country, I put what I found on the back burner because I honestly just wanted it to go away. But now it’s on my mind a lot and I deal with it. I have always been very secure and self confident, I wholeheartedly trusted my partner. In 8 years (at the time) I had only looked through his phone maybe 1 time and it was early on and I felt really bad about it. At this point, I’m checking out his stuff maybe once a month? Just randomly when I’m really not feeling good about us, and not because I want to find something. On the contrary, I want to find nothing so I feel bad and so I can say, he just made some mistakes and it’s okay, he really wants to make things work, but I find him liking all these pictures on ig of girls, tons of porn in the browser. I talked to him about it, he said he would stop. We’ve had the conversation many many times now. At this point, it’s sexy anime girls, and sexy cosplayers, and super erotic art, anything to say “it’s not the same thing”(ex: “it’s just a picture” “it’s just a cosplayer”), he’ll occasionally forget to close the porn tabs, and now I’m seeing him on a bunch only fans pages (browser history). For the first time in my life, I’m feeling so insecure. He was never like this previously and I think it would be different if maybe he got into all this erotic shit before I found out what I did, but it just makes me feel like shit about myself and makes me feel like “who is this person???? Why can’t my guy only have eyes for me like I do him? I don’t understand why I’m not enough for him.” And more than this if it bothers me, and you never did it before, why do you need to have this everywhere now? I mean phone backgrounds, stickers, you name it. I have sacrificed a tremendous amount to be with him and make things work with us throughout our whole relationship because I felt love was more important than anything else. Why can’t he give up erotica, at least until we’re solid again? I really love him, and I want to make things work because the last 9 years, with the exception of a lot of last year, have been amazing, but idk how to. Any advice?

2020.11.25 07:29 hooman_or_whatever SPCE is far more than Space Tourism, allow me to shed some light

Hello, World!
The moment is finally upon us for SPCE to start making serious moves and this is pre-revenue, pre-flight, and pre-publicity. So what is all the hype, why are people confident in its future, and why are they right? One this is for certain this is NOT, I repeat NOT, just a space tourism company.
Let me first introduce you to the staff and some key players:
Founder - Sir Richard Branson: Founder of the Virgin Group (Virgin Mobile, Virgin Atlantic, etc.) CEO - Michael Colglazier: Former President and Managing Director of Disney Parks International CTO (Chief Space Officer) - George Whitesides: Former Chief of Staff NASA CFO - Jon Campagna: Former Corporate Controller of ICON Aircraft Inc.
Noteworthy Investors: Vanguard Bank of America Morgan Stanley ARK Boeing Chamath Palihapitiya (Also a Virgin Galactic Chairman) Cathie Wood (presumably through ARKK)
Partners: Boeing ( investohopes to be a part of the hypersonic point-to-point travel ) Rolls Royce ( designing and developing engine propulsion technology for high speed commercial aircraft as well as interior design ) NASA ( a plethora of tasks including transportation to the ISS, research, and hypersonic point-to-point travel ) Lockheed Martin ( developer of the Supersonic X-59 plane which will be used for testing hypersonic travel ) Under Armour (suits)
Timeline of events:
  1. Q4 2020 - Q1 2021: A final round of test flights which were supposed to occur during the window of November 19-23. This was delayed due to the New Mexico lockdown. COVID depending this test flight could still possibly happen before the end of 2020, if not very early 2021. This test flight will mark FAA approval and will be carrying a revenue generating payload, being the first revenue to be generated by the company...well...ever.
  2. Q1 2021: Sir Richard Branson himself will take a flight up marking the start of commercial operations, the start of publicity and marketing, and the re-launch of ticket sales. So far roughly 600+ tickets have been sold and these will be the first clients to go up. Notable clients include: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Russell Brand, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, and Ashton Kutcher. The interior of SpaceShipTwo has 16 cameras which will be engaged during the duration of the flight and will capture these stars, quite literally in the stars as they float around in microgravity for several minutes. This will be recorded and surely uploaded to their social media. I imagine some of these individuals like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga will attempt to shoot a music video using this footage. Ticket sales will also resume again at this point.
  3. 2021: For the rest of 2021 Virgin Galactic will be sending clients to space all the while they will be pushing profits in R&D for future endeavors, such as the hypersonic point-to-point travel which will be discussed later. They will also be building out more Spaceports and ships in order to conduct more flights. According to the last investors meeting, each spaceport is predicted to generate $1B/year.
  4. Around 2025: The hypersonic point-to-point ship will be complete and ready for commercial operation. This will revolutionize human travel. To put it into perspective, the International Space Station circles the globe in 90 minutes, and when this plane is complete, so will we. Preliminary indicators suggest that a trip from NYC to Sydney, Australia would take roughly 30 minutes.
  5. The possibilities are as limited as space and I won't make your eyes bleed as we talk hypotheticals. I do however want to address highly likely revenue streams we could expect.
Revenue Streams:
  1. Space Tourism
  2. Hypersonic point-to-point travel
  3. Space Force https://spacenews.com/traditional-launch-services-may-not-suit-the-needs-of-the-future-space-force/
  4. NASA Contracts ( astronaut training, payloads, taxi services, etc)
  5. Booster Services
    1. Now, there is no news on this, but this is my prediction and what I would attempt to achieve. As hypersonic travel becomes the standard way for humans to traverse the globe there will need to be a way to make it possible and affordable for the general public. Virgin Galactic cannot achieve this on their own and current airlines (Delta, Southwest, etc.) cannot convert to Spaceship companies either. With Virgin Galactics unique approach and design, they could become a booster service for airlines. Airlines will need to design a space plane that is capable of hypersonic travel and Virgin Galactic will use their mothership to carry these planes to sub-orbit.
  6. While Virgin Galactic is currently operating in the sub-orbital space, I am sure they will begin working on deeper space projects for asteroid mining, moon operations, etc.
Common Objections and Rebuttals:
  1. Who would be able to afford this and even if they could, why would they?
    1. There are around 42 million people in the world with a net worth of $5 million where $250k is extremely affordable. The price of the ticket is the same price of chartering a yacht for the weekend. Except instead of playing on a boat for two days, you go to space for a few minutes. Yes, the complete trip lasts around 90 minutes, but we are talking about going to Space. Virtually anyone would say that's something they long to do because that is human nature, if you look at people with high net worth they spend their money on much more ridiculous things. Not only is it human desire to want to go, it has the "Johnson's effect" as well. The Johnson's effect is an old sales analogy, where someone in your neighborhood would say "Oh did you see the Johnson's got a new Porsche?" Inclining you the observer who has the capital to feel the competitive nature and want to also have said clout. So yes, there is very much latent demand on this service. As explained earlier there are already 600+ pre-sold tickets including highly renown individuals and 900+ who have reserved a slot for a future ticket purchase. Note that these ticket sales only stopped because Virgin Galactic stopped them and will resume ticket sales Q1 2021. Virgin Galactic could currently handle 50 flights per year per plane and has recently finished their second plane, meaning they can handle 100 of the 1400 pre-purchased flights over 2021. So, even as Virgin Galactic scales, there is enough customers already to cover operating costs and the development of new planes for several years.
  2. Wow so you get to go to space for all of two minutes?
    1. People who say this are people who can't afford it. That might sound harsh, but it is that simple. Very few humans would pass up on this opportunity for such a magical thing if they could actually afford it.
  3. It's not really "space"
    1. Who cares? You get to experience microgravity and float around. You get to see the curvature of the Earth. You get to officially be called an astronaut. The media will not be attempting to point out this very minute, arrogant point. Again, only people who can't afford it will be pointing it out purely out of jealously or disbelief in the Space Age that is upon us.
  4. People only invest in this because they can't invest in SpaceX.
    1. Not true. First off, they are completely different markets. SpaceX is orbital, Virgin Galactic is sub-orbital. A SpaceX tour would take you into deeper space for around a week and costs somewhere around $52 million. Secondly, even if SpaceX is a direct competitor I hardly see how that's a bad thing. Competition drives commerce, and to have Elon Musk being your direct competitor, that would only bolster Virgin Galactic. Thirdly, there is potential for partnership between these two companies in the future. A collaboration of completely different and unique technologies to overcome the challenges of the Space Age. Finally, SpaceX news and Elon Musk hype will mean space news and space hype, also helping Virgin Galactic.
What I imagine by 2035:
Spaceports all across the globe, connected by the Virgin Hyperloop (for those who don't know it's another Virgin project that allows humans to travel faster than the speed of sound through tunnels). At this point, Virgin Galactic will already be partnered with other major airlines who have created space planes, very much reducing the cost and barrier to entry. Meaning any human who would have normally have flown "first-class" will now have the ability to end up anywhere on the planet in under an hour. Virgin Galactic will also partner with shipping companies and if you're impressed with 2 day delivery, how does 2-hour delivery sound? Packages moved via space plane, then into a hyper loop to your distribution center, and finally automatically driven to your home via autonomous AI. All the while Virgin Galactic is innovating new technologies for deeper space missions, working with the Space Force, and continuing space tourism.
This is not some flashy new technology, this is the revolution of human travel. This is not sci-fi, it is simply sci. The future truly is now and we all have an opportunity to be a part of it. Thanks for listening and big disclaimer, I clearly own SPCE shares, because at this point, it doesn't make sense not to.
