My fiance went threw abuse with her son's father but didn't take legal action after breaking up with him

2020.09.26 11:38 D3s0l4ti0n My fiance went threw abuse with her son's father but didn't take legal action after breaking up with him

He was 30 years old she was 17 ( he's now 35 and she's 23)and he told her no one would believe her and that she had to do what he wanted because she was his gf, she looks back on everything that happen and realizes he was grooming her she went threw alot of abuse while with him, mental, emotional verbal, and physical and sexual abuse along with manipulation, she was still in high school he was a friend of the family he made all these promises and convinced her to move out of her adopted mom's house because he said he had a apartment for them.
Turned out there was no apartment and she ended up living in a tent in the woods for 4 months because when she chose him everyone turned there back on her and she lost pretty much all her friends because he pushed them away and made sure she was always home and never had the ability to go anywhere theres alot more to it but she got pregnant when she was 18 had her son and finally after getting the courage broke up with him when her son was 6 months old in 2017 he took off with her son and told everyone she abandoned them mean while the whole time she was trying to get her son back she only got him back because the father got arrested for unpaid tickets and because there was no custody order the police wouldn't do anything at the time.
Fast forward 2 years I met her in June of 2019 we became friends because she had been living with some old friends of mine ( that she had met threw her son's father I've known her son's father since we were kids going to church and even back the he wasn't right in the head) that I reconnected with when I moved back from phoenix az and transitioned into dating I made one stipulation when I started dating her and that was if her son didn't like me this wasn't gonna work turns out her son loves me and I take care of him like he is my own now a year later we have a daughter and are leading towards getting married,
But some issues have come up with her son that make me believe he has been being abused by his father when he would come back from his father's ( his dad has never had a stable place to live and just hops from house to house with anyone that will let him stay with them) on multiple occasions we would find a large amount of pieces of diaper in his poop when changing his diaper and it slowly transitioned into yarn and leaves and when he would get In trouble he would instantly start crying run away yelling no no no and hide and we would have to reassure him it was ok,
Fast forward to 10 weeks ago we ended up having to take him to the doctor to get checked because we found a mass of yarn in his poop and a mass of leaves, come to find out the doctor that we take my daughter to has been the doctor his dad takes him to and he lied to her and told her that my fiance's was not apart of her son's life which was an out right lie they have had 50/50 custody since her son was 9 months old week on week off and come to find out he has been pretty much lying to anyone and everyone saying he's a single father and his sons mom is not apart of his life and he enrolled him into headstart with out consultanting my gf on the matter and lied to the school along with quite a few other things.
About 6 months ago he moved in to this house with a older lady and her son before that he was living in a hotel with her son there every other week, we found out that he would get mad at her son and throw his phone in the hallway and shut the door locking him in the hallway for Few hours at 3 years old he talked mad shit about me and my gf to the lady he moved in with and had her scared to meet us well when covid hit and we stopped taking him to headstart because it closed we had to drop her son off to her son father's landlady who he told that my gf was a cunt and not to be trusted and I was a fat slob of and asshole and not to be trusted.
She took it apon her self after meeting us because we gave her a peach oatmeal bake for my gf son to have while there since we don't care for peaches but he loves them and we chatted a bit and she decided we were not bad people, well from that point she stated watching my stepsons father and everything he did and said, so the incident with the leaves and yarn in his poop the doctor called cps on his father and so did his landlord, because from what the landlord told us he screams and my stepson at the top of his lungs in his face tells his to shut the fuck up doesn't buy him food/clothes and doesn't care for him and leaves pretty much everything up to her to take care of my stepson,
Cps investigated and told us to keep my stepson while they investigated and of course my stepsons father cleaned everything up made everything look like it was fine so they recommended resumeing parenting time but he had to have his landlord present at all times while my stepson was there and come to find out he tested positive for cocaine.
So since the case is in michigan and we live 15 mins into wisconsin from where he lives he gave permission for my gf to have her son in wisconsin we opted to keep my step son and take his father to court to adjust custody because of everything we've been told and found out from people he has ran his mouth to about us he is not a fit parent.
And to make matters worse for the past year we have had issues with my 3 year old stepson abusing animals he has gotten in trouble several times for it but continues to do it he is now 4 and last week he peed on my 10 pound pomipoo put him in a tote smashed him down into his toys dragged him around by his front feet put him in a milk crate put his lego pail on top of him stood on it kicking it stomping on it took the dog out dragged him by his back legs around his room they hit him several times to the point he yelped in pain and I heard it threw the nanny cam that we have in his room to make sure he's behaving so I rushed into his room to see what was going on and my dog bolted out of his room when I forced the door open I had to go check the play back of the camera to see this.
Fast forward to 3 days ago he shoved my dog down the stairs and we took his TV and half his toys away he threw. 30min screaming fit and after he calmed down my gf asked him if he liked my dog daeday and he said no and she asked why and he said because daddy said so the she asked him what else daddy said and he said no moma no ii (that's his Nick name for me ) no daeday no Mya no neeyla ( our other dogs that are huskys he tries to hit them and bully them to but they nip at him since they are bigger than him) he has also had issues with being mean to alot of animals he's been around in the past year and a half he's been bit a few times while with his dad he has 2 scars on his face and his dad just says eventually he will learn to not mes with dogs and cats and honestly Were at a loss of what to do we're taking her son and her to counseling and we have a strict no yelling or harsh punishment policy if he miss behaves he loses his TV for the day or what ever is important at that moment and we talk to him after he calms down why he's in trouble and why he should not do the things he is And we try to make sure he understands he not a bad person and that people make mistakes but try to make him learn what is wrong and right.
We vocied our concerns to cps and the friend of the courts and they brushed it off like it wasn't that big of a deal and that unless something happens to my stepson they won't step in and I'm tried of watching him go threw what he has we have multiple police reports eyewitnesses doctor reports cps reports, but weelre worried that if the courts say that 50/50 is still fine that he's is just going to take off with her son because he voiced this to his landlord that he's gonna do what ever it takes to hurt my gf and get that bitch back and give her what she deserves
This hole time he doesn't know it was his landlord that reported him she wanted to stay anonymous because he lives with her and he scares her there's alot more but this would end up being a mile long we just want to do what's best for my stepson and we feel his father does not have his best interest in mind

I. Introduction

A. Bio

Old Man Logan (OML) is from Marvel Earth-807128, an alternate universe with a timeline very similar to Earth-616's (same general history and individuals) but with some key differences, namely it's farther along its timeline (the relative "future" for 616) and villains have taken over the USA, leaving it post-apocalyptic.
For his part, OML is much the same as 616-Logan--he has a long history with the X-Men, he underwent adamantium bonding at the hands of Weapon X, he experienced the rise of the Dark Phoenix, and more. However, during the villain uprising, he tragically killed the X-Men while under Mysterio's illusions. He swore a vow of peace and started a family, but eventually broke his vow when descendants of Bruce BanneHulk killed his family.
He then ended up in present Earth-616 after Dr. Doom's reshuffling of reality during Secret Wars. However, he was often haunted by violence from both his and 616-Logan's past, present, and future. He managed a little stability for a time working with the X-Men and various other heroes. He then managed to return to his reality where he eventually died saving a child of Bruce BanneHulk.
 

B. Powers and Enhancements

Secret Wars: Official Guide to the Marvel Multiverse entry; OLM's powers and abilities are essentially the same as 616 Wolverine's and include:
  • Healing Factor-- regeneration that can heal critical wounds in hours; also grants him superhuman stamina and resistances
    Note: even in initial appearances he and others note he seems diminished in his old age. Eventually, adamantium poisoning and other factors significantly degrade his healing. I've marked feats in which he is "not healing" as well or at all with (NH).
    To compensate for his failing healing, OML began to take Renegix, a regeneration drug with two notable side effects: (1) it spikes his adrenaline. This can instantly rouse him, and may boost his physicals. (2) It's toxic, and damages his health. Where relevant, I've marked these feats (R).
  • Claws -- three, roughly foot long bone claws that extend from been his knuckles
  • Enhanced Physical Abilities -- has heightened senses and mutant strength, toughness, etc
  • Adamantium-- bonded to his skeleton, making it super strong and his claws super sharp
    Note: in Old Man Logan (2016) #32 (published Feb. 2018), a Hand-resurrected Mariko cut off his right hand with an energy sword (the sword goes explained however). He regrows his hand, but afterwards, his right hand and claws lack adamantium. There is a bone claw section in IV. Other Powers and Enhancements.

Note: OML derives a sort of general resiliency to harm from a combination of his healing, adamantium, and generic toughness. Sometimes it can be tricky to determine whether a "durability" feat is due to one of these features or a combination, so instead I've organized by damage type and how much of it he can take before becoming incapacitated.

2019.12.03 13:51 gucci_fuccboi use dating to figure it out, or figure it out before dating?

hi all, im a 29 year old single guy looking for the next potentially long term thing. but im running into a personal issue and i wanted some anonymous opinions from the internet, because i dont want to be a dick to some nice lady.
i live in the mid...south? i guess now, but i spent ages 13 to 26 in phoenix AZ. during that time living there, i hung out with the bad kids and ended up being one. went to an alternative high school and got involved with even more of them. by the time i was 25 i was involved in manufacture drugs, car shopping, and other negative activities. while being this person i (stereotypically) dressed like a gang banger, talked like one, acted like one, listened to the type of music etc etc

well i dropped everything and moved to get away from it all (no kids, gf at the time) about 3 years ago and theres lots of the old me traits lingering still. the type of music (i love DMX lol), the slang i use and how i pronounce words, etc. but i dont think this is the "real" me because i was always just trying to fit in with people and i was molded into their likeness.

im have a hard time discovering who, personally, i am. all i know is i like video games and fixing cars, even if i might be bad at both.

is it a mean thing to try dating to figure out who i am? see what i really am like as a normie, and learn that way?

or is that a mean thing to do to a woman, trying to seriously date again not even knowing who tf i am? when someone asks what my favorite movies are, or what i did as a hobby i have no answer.

2019.08.16 07:48 Iliketodriveboobs Lu - Hope; for those who need it. [electronic music theatre] (I hope you see this Abel.)

9 years ago this month, I lost a friend to suicide.
I wrote this album “Hope; for those who need it” because I know what it’s like to have just a few words stand between you and everything you never wanted to do.
Last night, it worked. The kid had the gun on him.
Last night was probably the 2nd most traumatic night I’ve ever been through, save the night that I was looking for my dead friend. A lot of coincidences came together to prevent a tragedy and I’m just writing this so I don’t forget any of it. And maybe to provide a tool for the rest of you if you have any friends in this mental state.
I’ve been driving Lyft for some side cash. It’s really awesome to have time to keep writing songs while feeling productive. I’ve kept quiet about it, bc it’s nobody else’s business. I’m not ashamed… just disappointed in myself for a lot of other things that I’m not ready to share yet. I’m sharing this fact today because it’s relevant to the story. I park my actual car in the Lyft lot and then just use the rental to drive customers.
This month is always hard for me. It’s hot, school starting always sucked, and seasonal depression kicks in like a motherfucker. The yearly reminders of a dead friend just kick the pain to 11.
A year ago, my friend Steph connected me to the musician known as Bardz. At first, we were just going to write a single (Rain Dances), but I loved his style and wanted to keep going, so we wrote this album together. The words are mine and I directed, but the production talent is absolutely his.
It’s a weird album. It will probably never be a commercial hit. To my music biz friends, I’m working on another album much closer to track 3, so please just listen to that one if you feel like you don’t have the emotional energy for the rest of it.
I didn’t write it to make money on it.
I wrote it to save lives.
It’s for people who feel hopeless. Like there’s nothing to live for. Like there’s no reason to live. It starts out questioning if life is worth living and ends with a reason to fight to stay alive. I told the kid I would be there for him. I did what I thought was right.
These pieces, these spoken word tracks, they come from a lifetime of getting through my own depression. I don’t have much to offer. I’m 27 and I live at my parents. I have trouble forming long term relationships. I’m not in the best shape of my life. I don’t have a college degree. I’m alone most of the day.
I carry so much fear and self hatred and too many of my friends have been hurt by that fear.
All I have is a really big dream and a plan to get there. All I have is a light at the end of the tunnel and its all that keeps me going.
It may not have been the first life I’ve saved. But it was the most afraid I’ve ever been.
He seemed like a nice kid. You get this alert on your phone before long rides: 45+ minutes. I had actually ignored one ride a few minutes earlier and had another lady cancel on me quick. I almost wasn’t there. It was almost someone else who picked him up. God knows what might have happened otherwise. I figured I was going to Gilbert or something. It was a little weird that I was picking him up from a Burger King in the ghetto, but they sell impossible burgers now and maybe it was a rich person who just really needed a burger after their flight.
He had no suitcase. Just a backpack. I thought Vegas was a typo at first. He said, “just take me as far as you can. I’ve never left Arizona before and I just want to see a bit of the world before I die.” I didn’t think anything of it. Just thought he was sick of buses or something. I wasn’t complaining. It was my quota for the day in a single ride. Besides I love Vegas. If I wasn’t living in Phoenix, I’d probably be living there. Wanted to see if the new MeowWolf exhibit was open. I said, “you hopped in the car with the right motherfucker dude.” Quoting Queen Latifah from Taxi, if you’ve seen it. I have a lot of fun stories. I knew it was going to be quite the ride.
The kid smiled when he got in. I like to make people laugh, so of course I was cracking jokes. He started talking to me about his ex-girlfriend. They’d been dating for 3 months and he was already living with her and in love with her. Problem was that she was the on/off long term gf of the kid’s nephew (same age). They all lived together and had just kicked him out. She hated the kid for a lot of reasons. Really sounded like she was using him for his money. Made him sell his guns. He said he kept one because it was the only good memory he had of his brother, who I think is in jail for violent crimes. His family hated him for trying to take his nephew’s gf. He hated his job and didn’t get out much. Just wanted to leave. I totally get that. I’ve noped out of the city a few times. Figured he just wanted to play some blackjack and bang some hookers before coming home. I was of half a mind to ask to join him lol
It’s a long drive. Not the longest road trip I’ve ever taken, but 10x longer than any Lyft ride I’ve ever taken, that’s for damn sure. I had a lot of time to listen, but he was definitely looping in his misery. Have to pattern interrupt to change anything. It’s why weird people evolved. The human race would have died out otherwise. #diversity I asked him about his dreams and his future. He said he dropped out of school and just spent his free time on reddit. I love reddit. I tell people I’m from the internet bc Texas and AZ are historically full of rednecks and I am nothing like that. I asked him what his major WAS before he quit. He said computer science. I told him about udemy & coding bootcamps that will pay you to go to school and land you jobs in Silicon Valley. He liked that. I told him we needed him. He’s a good kid and we need every kind and smart person that cares for their family to be as strong as they can be bc its getting more and more difficult for everyone. We need smart folks to do great things.
I told him we needed him in the dark times to come. He didn’t know what to say. He just felt lost. I stopped to grab some water and some donuts and asked him to sit in the front with me. My neck hurt from looking back at him and I just wanted to be his friend.
Usually on rides, I like to play my single. It’s really beautiful and honestly its just a fucking banger. But we had about 2 hours left in the ride and I figured I would play him the whole thing. Bardz had given me back the masters on Monday and it just so happened that the kid would be the first to hear the whole thing all the way through. My uncle told me I should cut the first piece to make it more commercial. I almost did. But I’m so sure it is exactly the way it needs to be. The first time I needed it to work, it did exactly what it should have.
He kept asking me after every song if I really felt that. Then he started recording me because he didn’t believe I was real. He said he felt every word. He took my photo while I was driving. I smiled thinking I was winning a fan. My throat kinda hurt. I had been smoking. Something told me this was an important performance. So I gave it everything I had anyways and just fought thru the pain.
He was totally coherent prior to me playing that for him. Asking questions, smiling, being just a regular fucking human being. After the album he was different. Broken. Talking in circles. He started crying. I held his hand.
I told him I was there for him. That I would help him through this. You’re not the first person I’ve helped. This is why I’m here. This is my redemption for everyone else I’ve hurt.
He started to ask me if we were on a tv show. I played along at first. Then he asked me if we were in Heaven. I told him heaven was a state of mind. Then he asked me if I was God. Something was wrong. It’s not the first time I’ve been asked that question, as fucked up as that is. And every time someone has asked, they haven’t been okay.
I’m about as deep of an atheist as you can be, but, per usual, I came to some very different conclusions about spirituality from that sense than most of my non-believing peers have never admitted to. I believe in magic as art. I believe that we are all gods, in a way. I believe that the soul is a nurtured program and I believe we make our own fate. I wasn’t put on this earth for anything, but I am making meaning out of my traumas and since I believe we’re all Gods, this is my god-given purpose. But I am an atheist and this gives me the power to dispel magic when I need to.
In another story many years ago, a friend and I had taken some substances and climbed Bell Rock in Sedona. We have very different memories of what happened, but I didn’t see aliens, to say the least. My friend was experiencing a deep psychosis 1,000 feet up in the air and that night I had no other way to save him other than to hypnotize him into “telling his story when we climbed down in the morning.” When are we leaving? “In the morning” What will we do when we’re down? “Tell our story” When? “In the morning.” Over and over again for hours. If I hadn’t had these memories, last night probably would have gone a lot different.
I asked the kid to add me as a friend, so I could send him a life purpose guide (pm me if you want one- easily the most effective tool in combatting depression is seeing a beautiful future. It’s also just great to clear up your path, even if everything is swell). He wouldn’t add me. I asked if he remembered my name.
“God?”
“No. What’s my name?”
“Satan?”
Oh fuck. No. “Come on man, that’s hurts my feelings. You really don’t remember my name? I remember yours, Abel. Come on man, what’s my name?”
“u/iliketodriveboobs”
“Yeah it is. u/iliketodriveboobs. Type my name in.”
He wouldn’t do it. I couldn’t figure out why.
“Is this heaven? Am I already dead?”
It was time to stop playing along. “No man. This isn’t heaven.”
“Am I on a tv show?”
“You are if you want to be. Just turn on instagram and you are, but in the strictest sense of the world, no you’re not.”
“So I shouldn’t do it then?”
“Do what?”
“Will you take my gun?”
Oh my god. “Yeah man. Of course. We probably wanna head back to Phoenix too, right?”
“Yeah that’s cool. Am I real?”
“Yeah man. I’m touching you. FUCK THAT SEMI” I yelled random things to bring him back to earth. Tony Robbins 101. Pattern interrupt. Started swearing a lot. Cracked more jokes. Gripped his hand tighter. It was so hot. He was so cold. My whole body shivered when he started breaking down.
“Am I a killer?”
“No man. You’re just hurting right now.”
“Should I die?”
“No man, you want to be happy.”
“I want to be happy.”
“Say it again.”
“No.”
“Ok. Never mind. Will you please add me on fb?”
“No. I don’t want to.”
“Come on man, don’t you wanna be my friend?”
“No. You’re satan.” Oh fuck.
“No I’m not man. I was born on earth. In Texas.”
“You’re not real.”
“I am so real. I’m touching you right now. I have a dinner with my agent tomorrow night. I’m about to release an album. I have a girl back home that’s waiting for me.”
“Are you god?”
“no. God’s not real. Not like I am.”
“Are you satan?”
“No. And don’t fucking say that again.”
Why is he trying to dehumanize me? And then it clicked.
Serial killer 101- they don’t see you as human.
Where was his gun?
“My sister’s name is Hannah. I have a brother named Kyle. I have another brother named Dakota who is 17 and looks up to me and is about to graduate. I have another sister named Margo who lives in Texas.” I told him the name of my fathers, of my mothers, of my dream of building an augmented reality theme park envisioned as a cross between Walt Disney World, World of Warcraft, and Burning Man.
I held his hand and told him I would help him. I kept asking him for water. To hand me snacks. To keep helping me. I asked him to share my music and to help me save the world. I told him I couldn’t do everything on my own and that I needed him to help me.
I held his hand and told him I would help.
I pulled over to grab gas and just grabbed his whole backpack. He didn’t even look up when I left.
I’m so sorry I called the cops kid. I didn’t what else to do. I didn’t want you to get in trouble, I didn’t want to rat you out. But I can’t die either, kid. I didn’t fight through all the hell that I did to die there with you under stars in the middle of no where. I didn’t spend the last 9 years of my life wishing I could have saved Chris to not save us both now. I just wish I had gotten your last name, so that I could hold to my promise. I hope you see this someday. Or something like it. I hope I hear that you enrolled in coding classes and that you’re passing the favor forward. I hope your family loves you again and you find a romantic love worthy of all your smiles and curiosity. I hope I can return your headphones one day. I tried to give everything to the police, but they slid under the seat before I left.
Thanks to the staff of the gas station for letting me in the back. I didn’t know if the gun was really in his bag or if it was on him. I just needed to get away. I grabbed a mop out of the back and started spinning it. Loki is like my security blanket haha. What a fucking sight that must have been. A grown man crying and hyperventilating in rose pants spinning a mop handle while calling the police. The janitor forcibly removed my staff from my hand. The manager of the gas station called after, “Mike. MIKE!! Wtf?? Give him the stick back. He’s having a bad night.” Then the manager bought me a sandwich. That was really kind.
Calling the cops didn’t get me out of the fire. The kid had weed on him. I shouldn’t have let him in the car with it, but I fucking don’t give a shit. Or I didn’t at least. The cops found his stuff when they went to grab my wallet. I went from thinking I was going to be murdered to thinking I was going to get a possession charge. No good deed and all that. They let me go. I was trying to trying to save lives after all. I offered them the donuts I bought earlier. Couldn’t help myself.
Called my friend Nathan at midnight. We are in a men’s group and had a call earlier that day and got cut off while Nathan was telling me all the things about my dream that resonated with him. He answered and stayed on the phone with me while I sobbed on the way home. He finished the list of nice things. Thank god for you Nathan. I needed that so much.
I am so drained right now. Nothing has really changed, I still am in dire need of changing things in my life. I’m still feeling pretty lonely. I’m still frightened for the world. I’m still doing what I can. At least I know the Album worked when it needed to. I always said if I could just save one person, all the hell I’ve gone through would be worth it.
And I did. At least I have that.
Got home and someone stole my car hahahaha wtf.
At least I have Lyft?
And you people <3
Here’s my album. An incantation of “Hope; for those who need it.” I wasn’t going to release it like this. It was going to be a secret. But last night it made a world of difference to at least one person and every day we lose more people to suicide.
I hope it can help more than just the two of us.
(Track 3 if you just wanna jam)
Atra Esterni Ono Thelduín, my loves.
May your lives ever be full of magic (x)

2019.07.29 08:56 greyservitor Training classes available in Arizona, fall edition

It's been about three months since I previously uploaded a similar thread with this topic, so here were go. Some classes I listed have passed, some are coming up and still have slots open.
Don't forget, there are always the usual indoor classes available at Ted's, C2 Tactical, Scottsdale Gun Club, Caswell's, and others.
https://scottsdalegunclub.com/classes
Scottsdale Gun Club has actually rolled out eight new classes. What's new about these classes is that some build upon their preexisting curriculum, some have been combined into a longer time format, and some are old classes that have been revised based on previous feedback.
Note that while IWB holsters are not allowed in any of their classes, afterwards I have been able to draw from concealment in appendix position while practicing on my own in subsequent visits, and I've seen others with a draw card doing so as well, although it's uncommon. Most of the holster guys I see are wearing open speed rigs.
Remember that if you want to vet your equipment choices, hone your fundamentals, and build confident and safe weapons handling under the addition of time and pressure so that you can get the most out of whatever your training classes are actually trying to teach, Arizona has the damn near the best competition scene on a state level. Check out the Practical Shooting Starter Course at Rio Salado if you'd rather not just jump in the fire on a regular match, though most folks are plenty friendly if you let them know you are new and ask questions. Get an account on the Practiscore website/app to find and register for upcoming shoots in your area, and track your scores.

Where a good instructor can make or break the difference between someone who is a competent and responsible shooter and someone who joins the legions of 'that guy', or gives up altogether, Tom Givens is the instructor of good instructors. This class, in Caleb Gidding's words, "is pure essence of superior defensive pistolcraft".

Rob Haught is one of the few remaining defensive shotgun instructors remaining in the age of the patrol carbine. My home defense weapon is a Remington 870, and while I have shot at clays and paper a handful of times and taken the shotgun classes at SGC a couple of times, I need to do better.

Gabe White is known for competing at a high level in the USPSA with his carry gear despite the disadvantages that it presents in a competitive setting. His style of teaching focuses on students integrating that level of technical performance for everyday self-defense, which most instructors with a competitive background choose not to address. When I attended this earlier at the beginning of this year, there were a couple Rogers alumni and Gunsite instructors in the class, which I think speaks for itself. Can't wait to see him again.

If you visit the outdoor ranges like Ben Avery, Rio Salado, Phoenix Rod & Gun, Pima Pistol Club, etc, you're bound to see T-shirts from local competition trainers like Hammer Down or Secret Weapon. Tim Herron's a lefty single-stack shooter who started shooting in 2010 and became a grandmaster four years later not because he spent hours at the range shooting a thousand rounds or more, but because he had good mentors who showed him better ways to practice.

Do you carry or compete with a red dot? Scott Jedlinski's your guy for that. I'm still sticking to irons but I've taken his AIWB class hosted by AJ Zito at PPT in Prescott. Both of their abilities to diagnose and make corrections with noticeable improvements in performance are a thing to behold. Scott also does an online coaching option that is relatively new (the only other ones I've heard of are from Ben Stoeger and John McPhee) and I may end up trying that in the future.

2019.07.27 22:15 okaysian I Went to Each Night of USA TWICELIGHTS in Los Angeles, Newark, and Chicago - Fan Account

Hey everyone! I did all three USA stops for TWICELIGHTS.
I’d like to start off by saying that TWICE is my GOAT group. I was tuning out of K-Pop when my original GOAT group lost one of their members (SNSD and Sica).
As I felt like my last ties to K-Pop were disappearing, all of a sudden JYP’s new girl group was hit with a controversy: one of their members, Tzuyu, was involved in a “flag scandal”. I looked up the group out of curiosity and I said I’d support them until the controversy died down.
CHEW-YOU (how I originally pronounced her name before “Chewy”) became my favorite member because that’s who the controversy was about and I wanted to support her throughout.
From that moment on, it all went downhill in a good way (depending on how you look at it – monetarily maybe not so much LOL).
TT was what kept my interest in them, but KNOCK KNOCK solidified my love for the group and I’ve been 100% hooked to them ever since.
That’s the back story of why I love TWICE!
Anyways, since I went to three shows there were more things that were the same than different, so I’ll talk about the concert as a whole in the Chicago section. In the LA and Newark section, I’ll just list things that made them unique.
Disclaimer: This is all my opinion of course. Also, I’m doing most of this from memory, so if you’ve went to one of these shows and I missed out on something, feel free to add it on in the comments!

tl;dr for those who want to be blessed with the gift of time

Los Angeles – 07/17/19

Personal / Trip Thoughts

I’m in LA often enough, so it wasn’t anything new to me. The walk from the Rodeway Inn & Suites in Inglewood, CA to The Forum isn’t the most glamorous. The area around it isn’t either. So, if you’re thinking about walking to The Forum from there, I suggest doing so with some friends. I got lucky on the way back and met two guys who were walking the same way I was.

Concert

I was sat in Section 230, Row 8, Seat 14.

Special interactions for LA

Newark (Silver VIP) – 07/21/19

Personal / Trip Thoughts

Whew, no offense Newark denizens, but I did not have the greatest time in your city. It was the worst experience I’ve had with panhandling in my life.
I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Newark Downtown. Every time I walked out of the hotel there was a panhandler nearby. I found out that I should’ve just walked along the Prudential Center side rather than the side west to the Prudential Center.
The first day I got there, I walked around the area to get some food. I was hit up by four panhandlers in a five minute walk! Eventually I got to this place called the Noodle Bar. The only person working in there left me by myself. I felt obligated to stay in the restaurant because I didn’t want anyone to steal anything. I hopped on my Instagram and asked my friends (jokingly) what I should do LOL.
On the way back, I went into a 7-11 to get some drinks. The cashier on the phone was talking to someone about how earlier on in the day, someone tried to rob them. Her words, not mine, “What? You really gonna rob me for $50? I said no.” Brave lady to say the least.

Concert

The seat assigned to me was Section A, Row 26, Seat 3 but I stood up and was able to be at the barricade the whole time!
Pictures from my time in Newark + concert pictures
VIP check-in wasn’t all that bad minus the sweating from humidity. It was fairly straightforward and simple. You got in, went through security, showed your ID to prove that it was you who bought and are picking up the tickets, then we took the escalator up to merch. Since I knew I was getting the pre-show merch here in Newark, I didn’t fret about merch in LA.

Special Newark Interactions:

Silver VIP Interaction:

Initially I had thought the Silver VIP wouldn’t have been worth it because it’s “just” a hitouch, but if I could do it all again, I would’ve jumped on the Gold/Silver VIP at all the stops.
Overall, Newark was INCREDIBLE because of the people I got to meet. I didn’t get to find out if they were Redditors or not, but if you are and you are reading this, it was my pleasure to meet you. I really hope we cross paths again. I know some of us are meeting up at KCONLA, but I’d love to see those of you who aren’t going to KCONLA again someday 😊.

Chicago – 07/23/19

Personal / Trip Thoughts

Just like Newark, this was my first time in this city. Nightmare trying to get a Lyft/Uber out of O’Hare. I was flabbergasted when my Uber started to approach your city. The skyline was BEAUTIFUL. I mean I’ve been to so many cities and this one took me aback.
I spent $40 on a pizza and wings. I needed to try out the famed deep-dish Chicago pizza. Jeongyeon herself vouched for your pizza. I’ll have to say it was the best deep-dish pizza I’ve ever had.
I went and did tourist-y things with a friend of mine. While at The Bean, a guy came up to us and started asking some questions. Eventually he changed his tone of voice and said, “The next person who refuses me $40 is going to be dropped.”
So, even in broad daylight with hundreds of people around you, be careful and keep your guard up. Luckily I was able to shoo away my friend from the situation before I bolted from the guy.
Also, I stayed at the Marquis Marriott right next to the Wintrust. Beautiful hotel with amazing staff. I highly recommend staying here if you plan to do a concert at the Wintrust any time. It is a bit pricy if you’re budget conscious, so I’d recommend rooming with friends if you wanna stay nearby.
The first night in Chicago, I just walked around and took some pictures with my DSLR. I was stunned at how beautiful Chicago’s weather was. If I sat outside in Arizona at 7pm, I would melt into the ground. The weather right now in Chicago (in the evening) is the type of weather we get in Arizona in NOVEMBER.

Concert

I was sat at Sec 102, Row N, Seat 5.
Pictures from my time in Chicago + concert pictures
This was the best venue no doubt about it.
The walkway to the center stage and the entrance stage was shortened so everyone had a perfect view of them no matter where they were at on either stage.
The concert opened with a VCR of JYP as an organization. It featured all of their acts such as JYP himself and Miss A.
Every group got loud cheers. I think the loudest (not including Twice) at every venue was GOT7. As soon as their song popped up, it was as if all the girls in the venue tried breaking the sound barrier.
The one that surprised me the most was ITZY. I really like ITZY, but figured since they were so new and fresh that they haven’t really found their following yet. However, at each venue, the audience went wild when they came up. When the chorus started to play, everyone was yelling “DALLA. DALLA. DALLLLLLA.”
After this VCR played, there was a brief moment of silence before the next VCR kicked up. The girls appeared one by one and were being absorbed by a thingy-majig. Then they all appear together and pose for the camera.
The screen cuts to black and the stage starts to fill with smoke. The girls on stage left and stage right appeared in a trio whereas the girls in the middle were a duo. Concert opener was STUCK IN MY HEAD. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of the song because I play Superstar JYP and for some odd reason, I drop notes in that song when I know I hit the notes correctly. Hearing it live gave me PTSD, but in actuality I was jamming out pretty hard to it.
I was lucky to see CHEER UP at KCON last year, so I wasn’t too surprised by it. Touchdown had the crowd cheering every single step of the way.
After a short break where they introduced themselves and talked to the crowd, they jumped straight into performing BDZ. YES or YES was a song I needed to see live. I didn’t realize how much heart and soul went into that song until I saw it live.
This isn’t an @ at anyone since I’m one of those people who love K-Pop but doesn’t fully understand Korean, but I was really surprised that the ONE English song on their setlist was a song EACH VENUE did not sing along to. I Want You Back is iconic and I belted that out at every single stop.
From I Want You Back, the soundtrack transitioned into a new song with a war drum-like beat. The song was eventually revealed to be Dance the Night Away. This was also a song I was able to see at KCON last year, so I wasn’t too hyped for it, but still enjoyed it nonetheless.
I’m not sure if I’m getting the timing on this right, but I believe the VCR with them in the white room and white dresses happened during this intermission. This was one of my favorite VCRs because it was shot very well. Each girl got ample time in the edits and the crowd went wild whenever Mina popped up.
Finally, the girls came out in their white dresses and sang AFTER MOON. As I mentioned before, EACH VENUE lit up the venue with Mint/Teal for Mina and the chants for her were through the roof.
After You In My Heart, they played SUNSET while walking around the stage and waving to their fans. Fan service queen Dubu was on fire. She was throwing out heart fingers, blowing kisses, doing hearts with people in the crowd, and waving at everyone. (Author’s Note: SUNSET is now one of my favorite B-Side songs. I’d take a listen to it if you haven’t already!)
They walked from center stage to the main stage to start singing a slower version of Heart Shaker. Before they could finish the song, they were lowered beneath the stage and it cut to another VCR.
This VCR introduced them in red outfits. I don’t really remember too much about this VCR since I liked the white outfit VCR a lot more than this one tbh.
After the VCR finished, the girls came out and finished the song in their red outfits (one of my favorites of the night).
From Heart Shaker, they transitioned into STRAWBERRY. That performance convinced me (not that I wasn’t before) that Twice was fully capable of a sexy concept. When Sana did her 여기 lines near the line, it had me [like](guy stumbling drunk gif).

Beyonce Sunbaenim stage was THE BEST stage.

The sub-unit consisted of Dubu, Sana, and Tzuyu. It was very much a sexy concept and they nailed it perfectly. Words can’t describe how I felt when the fans turned on and blew their hair. At the end of the performance, the “Yes”’s said over the sax near the end had my heart stopping each time. The first time I saw it in LA, the guy next to me and I could not believe what we were seeing. I hopped on my DMs and messaged all my friends sitting in separate sections about the performance after it happened, “WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED ARE THEY ALLOWED TO DO THAT?!”
Immediately after Beyonce Sunbaenim sub-unit, Momo and Jihyo entered on the opposite side of the stage. They danced to TAEMIN’s “Goodbye”. This stage was powerful. The movements and energy were aggressive. It highlighted both of their dancing skills excellently!
After their stage, Jeongyeon, Nayeon, and Chaeyoung took center stage. They danced along to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”. This stage took advantage of Chaeyoung’s sassy persona well. One of my favorite parts of TWICELIGHTS was their backup dancers ninja dabbing their way onto the stage. When it first happened in LA, I thought, “Surely this can’t happen again”. And it did. It happened again in Newark. So I knew what I had to look forward to here in Chicago!
There was a slight intermission so that the girls could get into their Fancy outfits. They performed LOA first. The girl sat next to me in Chicago nudged me and said, “Did they say they’re going to do a brand new song?!”
After LOA, they hopped into LIKEY. When this song first came out, I quoted it as a joke. I’d see something and say, “Me likey likey likey”. Little did I know, this would be a song I belt out the most at their concerts. The crowd was so energetic when Momo’s “BB 크림 파파파 립스틱을 맘맘마” line came up. Admittedly, I was one of those people who yelled that line, but the venue roared when, “Me likey likey likey” came up. I could totally live with more Momo dance breaks because her dance break in LIKEY is so captivating. That was such a privilege to see live.
Then they performed “What Is Love?” WIL is one of my favorite TWICE songs because I was in San Francisco when they released that song. Every time the song starts, I remember the cool, rainy breeze drifting through my hotel window, the bustling of downtown San Francisco below, and the smell of the sea-salt pier. It remains one of my favorite songs simply because of where I was and what I was able to experience in San Francisco at the time. So, it was a pleasure to see it live again since they also performed it at KCONLA.
TT’s stage was different in Chicago because of the stage length. In LA and Newark, they lined up along the walkway from the center stage to the main stage and did the TT dance to the crowd. Since the stage wasn’t that long in Chicago, they walked to the main stage and continued the dance.
FANCY was the song I lost my voice to every single night. Seeing hundreds of people lift their hands up and do the “FANCY”/love hand sign was amazing.
After they did FANCY, they retreated backstage and the TWICELIGHTS logo came up. Funnily enough, there were many people at all three stops that left at this point.
The screen came back up and a few games were played with the crowd (via VCR). I’m blanking on the order of the games, but I’m pretty sure it went:
After the last game, the VCR popped up and said, “TWICE Is coming back out to greet you!”
When they came back out, their encores were SIGNAL and KNOCK KNOCK. These are two of my favorite songs (especially SIGNAL), so I was disappointingly thinking that they were cut out of the setlist. It was a pleasant surprise to see them perform these two as the last songs!
After KNOCK KNOCK finished, they lined up side by side on stage and made their final greetings.

Final Greetings for Chicago

Jihyo almost started with the waterworks, but caught herself before crying. She said she hopes to come back.
Nayeon was so sweet. She said, “Before I came here, many of my friends said that I would enjoy Chicago.” Any time she finished a sentence, she’d bust out a smile and looked at all of us LOL.
It was either Sana or Momo who called SH-KAH-GO as SHIII-KAH-GO. It was still adorable to hear. Then she had to back track through her whole English sentence because she messed up the end of the sentence.
Dubu said this at all the stops, but it stuck with me every time and it’s something I think I’ll take for myself, “Although we’re physically apart, we’ll always be together emotionally/mentally.” The first time she said this in LA, some guy in front of us yelled, “You speak better than my girlfriend” RIP LMAO.
Before Chae could start talking, Nayeon spoke up and said, “Hey, are you trying to do a sexy concept?” Chae’s outfit showed her shoulder. Nayeon came running over and put the sleeve back over her shoulder. Chae made a face to the crowd and then pulled the strap back down. Nayeon came rushing back over and covered Chae with her body.
Jeongyeon started tearing up as she talked about this stop being the last for North America. She said, “I know there are prettier and more talented artists than us, so I’m glad that you all support us.”
Immediately after that was translated for the audience, the collective groans and agony within the Wintrust was hilarious!
She then went on to say that the group will try their best to come back to Chicago again.
They took a group photo with the audience and then commenced their final song. Their final performance was a slower version of Stuck. As they sang the song, the girls moved back to the stage prop, took their seats, and it retracted behind the screens. At all three stops, the girls HAM’d up their exit by acting silly (making faces, doing funny dances, etc.).
In Newark, some of the girls (Nayeon especially) didn’t have their footing and almost fell when the stage prop started to retract.
In Chicago, Momo and Nayeon were HAM’ing it up as soon as the prop started to retract.

Summary

Mina was in everyone’s hearts at all the stops. No doubt about it. The girls and the fans greatly missed her. I’ll never forget the emotions the girls showed when they saw the sea of Mint/Teal. I’ll also never forget how loud each venue was when we started chanting Mina’s name.
Dahyun had so much confidence in her English. It was so impressive. The only time I remember her transitioning to Korean was when she asked Momo what the next song was. I think the only reason she did that too was because she missed a cue or took a line that Momo was supposed to have. She also gave all ONCEs a new response to anything: Nice.
Jeongyeon really put her heart on her sleeve. I have a newfound appreciation for her. They give her the fierce tomboyish vibe, but she’s really all into her feelings. My perception of her (not that it was bad before) changed the most out of all the other members after this tour.
Also, I apologize if I missed out on anything. It’s funny to me that I went to all three stops and some of it is still a bit foggy, but I can remember the Liverpool vs. Borussia Dortmund game with ease.
And that’s my fan account of each stop! I had an amazing time at each stop. I got to meet new friends in Chicago and Newark. It was hilarious seeing people’s eyes widen when they heard I came from Phoenix, AZ to attend the shows 😊. I hope to see them again someday. I’ve been thinking about going to Shizuoka for their show there, but we’ll have to see!
Thanks for reading. Feel free to ask any questions or to butt in and talk about your own experience as well!

2019.05.29 23:34 DojaMausWRX NIGHTMARE motel bed bugs, threats....

Sorry for it being slightly long-winded, it's been a week dealing with this...

Moved out of California, about a week ago now to the Phoenix area of Arizona.

My boyfriend, ten year old daughter and I booked a stay at Studio 6 Mesa.

EVERYTHING was wrong;

There was a "kitchenette" with a non-working "stove" (hotplate) and DISGUSTING dishes with rotten stinking water left for us to use with no soap anywhere in the room of any kind.

The bed had no blanket, with a DISGUSTING mattress under the single sheet/mattress cover. (Blood, urine, dirt... an alley mattress basically)

Everything was broken or missing, DIRTYYYY.

Due to the move and restricted funds, we had no choice but to bite it and smile since we couldn't afford to have a refund tied up for however many business days.
(They knew our situation, for the record.)

About 4 or so hours into our stay, my door is knocked on SUPER aggressively and I'm confronted by the girl at the front desk and some crazy tweaker looking lady who at first, wouldn't say anything, just stood shaking her head getting progressively more angry at my replies.

I was accused of having MULTIPLE strangers in and out of my room, BLATENTLY selling drugs to people coming on and off the property on bicycles....
I remained calm, explained they had cameras they needed to look at, because it was OBVIOUSLY not me or my ten year old, or my boyfriend...

I have the tweaker lady in my face at this point, screaming at me how she doesn't "like people who don't belong here" (again, CA > AZ) and then physically threatened me, literally saying she'd "beat my ass".... "just like the guy we had beat last night."

She explained while screaming at me that she doesn't believe me, over and over until she FINALLY hears me tell her to look at her own damn security footage. She then screams way more profanities at me by telling me she'll "check them again" LOL okay.

Turns out, I was right. (Didn't see that coming, did you?) I went into the office about half an hour afterwards, only for the daughter to explain that "You were right, it was your neighbors......... two doors down, two rooms, two guys that are renting next to you, that's why you got in trouble."

I got in trouble?
Okaaaaaay then.

NO apology from her, ABSOLUTELY no apology or even an appearance from the crazy tweaker who threatened me, either.

Fast-forward to 3AM.

I wake up with my arms and sides BURNING.
I look at my arm, and find TWO bedbugs on me, mid-bite.

I pack my stuff right then, load it up in my rental truck and call the emergency/after hours/lockout office number that they have posted on their office door.

Two calls, both rejected. The third resulted in me finding out that whoever's number that is, actually just shut it off without knowing who or why anyone is calling.

I send a text with a picture of the bug, and a question as to why the after hours number would be shut off before they even know why someone is calling.

By this time, I had already counted twelve bites on my arms alone (hadn't seen my torso or legs yet) and more than ten on ONE of my daughter's arms.

Mine were welting up, BADLY.

I ended up having to go to a motel down the road after sleeping three hours in the truck with everyone and everything in a city we didn't know, after being eaten alive.

When I show up in the office in-person to deliver one of the live bugs I kept in a bottle to show them, BEFORE EVEN OPENING MY MOUTH, the tweaker lady sees my boyfriend and I, and SCREACHES (hand to God, I am not exaggerating) "OH MY GOD THE ROOF IS ON FIRE, IT'S A FUCKING EMERGENCYYYYYY CA THE FIRE DEPARTMENT!!!!! WE BROUGHT BED BUGS WITH US AND WANT TO STAY FOR FREEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! GET THE FUCK OUT!!!! YOU brought them!!!!!!! WE DON'T HAVE BUGS HERE!!!!"
.....

Well... then she walked away slamming doors and on the phone with Terminix, lol.

So her daughtefront desk girl (found that out) is left MORTIFIED and shaking, obviously nervous.

We're told they can't prove it wasn't us who brought the bugs, if they have any bugs at all. LOL
Fair enough.
We're told that we won't get a refund until they can prove it wasn't us.
Again, fair enough.

But no sorry. No addressing us JUST getting screamed at.... (I have a recording of this, me even asking for an apology, or explanation or ANYTHING lol)

I'm told Terminix will come and check it out.
Whatever.

I call Maricopa County, because at this point it's OBVIOUS the tweaker woman (who I was told by this time that she's the "owner") isn't ever going to own up to ANY mistakes, so why would I trust their 'outcome'?

The county sent one of their environmental health and safety agents out to inspect the property, to give me an unbiased finding.

Terminix made it first, and sprayed the infestations they found.

But see, I was called and told that the bug I gave them, was "a baby cockroach" which... it wasn't. It was currently feasting on my arm when I caught it. It has my blood in it's belly.

Whatever.
The desk girl calls me, downplays THE CRAP out of the infestation saying that it's still so new and isolated to our room that they still "aren't sure" or something about who brought them to that room but that yes, they'll refund me.

Then the county calls me...
The property was infested in "a BUNCH" of the spots the county I spected, spanning the WHOLE motel.
MULTIPLE rooms, MULTIPLE batches of bed bugs bodies that Terminix produced by spraying...

Basically it was, in NO WAY, us who brought the bugs.


Now our money is gone because it's "been refunded" but that was around Thursday and the whole 5-7 business day wait, PLUS the holiday... and my rental has been returned....

MY issue is that Motel 6/G6/Studio 6 corporate WON'T DO ANYTHING!!!!!

They wouldn't comp that room I had to pay for, for the same day I already paid for...

They won't compensate for the clothing that cannot be thrown into a dryer, or the itch/swelling/pain relief we had to buy for everyone....

They won't even have someone reach out to me for an apology.

They left us with no place to stay after that last room for the weekend, our money (still) in limbo, and with having to figure out where to be/how to clean our stuff after having to shove it all together....

The COMPANY won't even apologize.

They told me that she told them she sent me an email apologizing; a BLATANT lie.

I reported this to the BBB already, haven't heard back yet.

I guess I'm asking for advice in hopes that SOMEONE with a random resource for how to get this resolved or ANY ideas or ANYTHING.

This has turned MISERABLE for us, and put us in a situation that is pretty crappy.

They knew our money was tied in moving expenses and that we needed to carry over before our moving into an apartment.

Has anyone dealt with this?
How do I bring more attention to this?
(I'm not the only one according to Yelp, this is her "thing" with people from outside of Arizona....)

I don't really know what to ask for, but I'm at a loss and it feels like she's been allowed to just act like this....

I do have pics/audio/proof, I just don't know what to do with it.

Thanks in advance,
Heather

2019.04.15 04:06 BurninateDabs Addiction is just... absolute insanity.

Some kid complained about the length of this so here's your warning, it's what children might call "long".
As quickly as I can sum up my own life to give you all an idea of where I'm coming from I was given opiates by my doctor at age 11. That progressed to stronger ones like Oxycontin, and by age 12 another doctor added Adderall & Xanax to the concoction. I turned age 13 and began dating an 18 year old. I'm female by the way, so that makes it ew I know. Anyways everything changed when my doctors took me off of all those pills I began a horrible withdrawal.
I got onto AIM (AOL's version of FB messenger back in the day) asking people of they knew where to get any opiates. This 30 something year old friend of my adult bf, replied saying he could get heroin and began telling me how it's basically the same thing. I didn't even care I just knew if I got more I could stop feeling like that. Tom, the adult bf, and I used for 5 years we broke up I moved on once I was 18.
So began an almost sixteen year long hell in which I went through several boyfriend's each one I dated for a few years and each one was a drug relationship. In the one relationship my bf would run around scrapping for metal to support HIS habit I was often left without anything and always sick. He was a jerk. Anyways one day at the apartment we were being evicted from the landlord and sheriff showed up and I left. Bf wasn't coming to get his stuff. And somehow they thought a vibrator John made for me out of an MnM mini's tube was a pipe bomb so they had to detonate it. I also had misdemeanor warrants out for getting caught stealing something for like a dollar at a major retail store. I of course had already worn my welcome out at my parents with stealing their stuff and doing typical drug addict stuff. They had moved to Arizona while I was still in PA. I ended up lasting maybe a month more after that apartment and then was just sick of the life I was living. I found this girl that was good at stealing stuff, or just stupid enough to do it. 
She took me to some literal dark places man. I'd have to take her to this black guys house who only had his body from his belly button up, and he'd do some awful sexual shit to her. Like some stuff you'd see out of a gore movie. So I said screw that, begged my parents to let me come straighten my life out (for the fifth time) and my mother finally caved and sent me the $ to drive out there.
I really thought things were going to be different I had every intention of doing well I was practically detoxed. Since that prostitute lady did mostly crack and only some heroin I was often dope sick. But it did help me get thru the worst of it. So with 1 Suboxone I drove through four days there and was doing great. Until I met Glen.
So stupid! Dumb! Argh! Can't believe I got into a relationship immediately. We were attached at the hip and infatuated with each other, one of the first things we did was get a bunch of cocaine. Eventually that lead to heroin. And so began the craziest time in my life so far...
For some stupid reason Glen & I were trying to have a baby the first week into knowing each other. We were doing meth and heroin daily, and sometimes cocaine on occasion. Things got worse than they ever had with my parents, I was returning their stuff to Walmart for cash, pawning my dad's tools, my mom's jewelry. Selling the catalytic converters off all our vehicles for $. As Glen and I got worse he began taking bolder moves. Breaking into houses, cars, stealing cars, taking from stores, it was insanity. He actually became addicted to the stealing. For almost a year we stayed out of legal trouble for the most part, but I became pregnant and he just kept on stealing.
Of course he was caught several times, I remember he had just made a rather impressive score of 3 flat screens, lots of gold jewelry, rare coins, computers, laptops, a credit card, and some high end cell phones and shoes. He ended up leaving that night to look for more and he finally got arrested trying to steal gold jewelry out of a case in JC Penny and then they found that stolen credit card. Once all of the items he stole from that one score were sold, every last dime went to bailing him out twice in a row. The second time, he was so dope sick and impatient even though I was headed toward him and was 60 miles away he decided to walk across the parking lot from the jail he was released at and he broke the wiper off of a Jeep and tried using it as a slim Jim. He was spotted doing that and immediately re-arrested less than an hour after being released. Once he went back I got him out on bond one last time...
I was trying so hard to get him to just spend time with me & not go steal. What do you think happened? Wrong! He actually didn't get caught stealing again, but got so twacked out on meth and was up for almost a week and we were on our way to his court hearing & he started messing with the car. He was on "tweaker time" &hadn't real conception of time so he missed it. He was eventually caught by the bondsman and spent the next 4 years in prison and I had to give birth to my child alone.
I was still using the entire time I was pregnant, I hadn't even been to the doctor to confirm the pregnancy. The only time time I had gone to the doctor at all during the pregnancy is when I was 15 minutes from delivering my miracle child..
My son had not much wrong with him considering the ordeal he had been through in the womb of an addict. He had a small tear in his lung, and when he was on his way out defecated inside me and breathed it in causing a minor infection they took care of. They also had to ween him off the opiates with baby morphine. He was premature by a month and was 5lbs 5oz. Beautiful baby boy, Connor. I lost custody of him, and unfortunately the paternal grandmother has him.
I say unfortunately because she's an awful person, after all my boyfriend Glen was an awful human being. She raised him. The way he spoke to people and has robbed people of at least a quarter million dollars in his criminal history even prior to meeting me. She also has some sort of delusion where she doesn't see behavior with her soon seems more on the lines of a partner, not a motheson relationship so I fear for my son.
Glen, the bf at that time has basically been in & out of prison since my son was born and he currently is in there. Now the grandma doesn't let me speak to him, nor does she say anything about my family to him. And I hate it! I don't even get to see pictures of him from recent or even talk to him. I do miss him, but I was thinking ready at that time to be a parent I still had to get sober.
After I had Connor, Glen was still in prison not getting out for years, my parents moved back to PA, and I was just so alone. I began to steal, I got down to 94lbs & would only eat once a week. My teeth began to rot, I just didn't care about my life anymore.
Then I was finally arrested on a warrant, I was sent to the infamous tent city jail in Phoenix. They didn't give me any medications for the withdrawal, and it took two long hellishly long months and I had no strength.
Once you are sentenced in a county jail, you're either going to prison or doing your time at the jail if it's under one year, but if you stay in the jail you are given a job. At first I worked in the kitchen on an assembly line putting together the breakfast sacks all of the inmates ate. I was too weak to even stand for a few hours! It was embarrassing, but with each job there was a perk for each job. For kitchen workers, we had an inmate cook that was allowed to cook us things while we worked. We ate amazing. Cooked polish sausage, delicious sides like baked potato, ice cream, and soda!
My time in tent City of course seemed to take forever, at this time I actually became pretty well acquainted with Jodi Arias, a murder who killed her ex bf in Mesa, AZ and overkill is an understatement. Watching her whole story go on was distracting for a bit. I switched jobs from kitchen to an intake trustee do that's how I became acquainted with her. I was able to roam freely in the inside part of the jail (tent city was just outside the jail) without handcuffs or escort, my job was to bring each jail tower whatever they needed for the inmates and there were other various odds and ends I had to do, but mainly I was working in the intake room, I'd always see the inmates that were coming or going, she had to go to court like everyday for years. Anyways after that 3 months in jail I was released.
I was so stupid, I immediately went back to using The good news is I stopped after 2 weeks after having to live in the homeless shelter. It was like 120°F outside and they kicked us out from 6am-4pm so I'd often be batteling heatstroke. I decided it was time to go to detox and a halfway house.
It was a boot camp style halfway house for all girls, that worked for like 4 months then I left & relapsed. My boss constantly glorified him getting high off heroin, so I ended up moving in with him and his GF then got back into heroin again real bad. After 6 months and being kicked out of where I was staying, I immediately went to that halfway house again. I had to go to detox though, for four days so I left.
I went through a week long medical detox, then was set up with a Suboxone taper, and was being set up with a coed halfway house. My house managers were a couple, and I got along amazingly with the guy Isaac. I spent the next 10 weeks tapering off Suboxone and hanging out with Isaac all the time, then I was moved to a higher level house, and the owner was such a dick to me I ended up leaving after 7 months.
I stupidly left with another guy, not Isaac, his name is Ben. He was an alcoholic and claimed to have a year clean, he relapsed the first day in our apartment. I relapsed shortly after and tried doing the Suboxone taper again, ended up relapsing again.
After a couple months living there we broke up, and our landlord relapsed and disappeared. He disappeared for 2.5 years. And during that time it was hell for me Ben kept stealing my stuff & harassing me. I called the police almost every day, he'd get so drunk then get violent. One of the times I had to call the police I watched his dumb drunk self make a move on an officer, so they beat the crap out of him and took him to jail. Unfortunately the assault on a police officer charge didn't stick, they poked his chest & they had their body cameras on so they decided not to even bother charging him with it.
That continued for a few years, then I moved out and got an apartment. I had to get a restraining order on Ben, I was single again but was loving it. There was really only one person I'd go back to at this point, and it's because it was my baby daddy and he and his mother had him. So if I could be with Glen, I could be with my son Connor.
Then Glen got out of prison and claimed he needed a place to sober up, he was even saying he wanted to bring my son to live there too I was like absolutely! He ended up coming out and he was very far from his side of town, and we didn't have any cars. I got him set up with transportation to his Methadone clinic. Yes this fiend was worried about getting dope sick yet he had methadone and medical marijuana at his disposal. He ended up not bringing my son out, at all. Glen went back for a weekend to be with Connor then just disappeared, I searched and found out he was in jail with a 2nd degree burglary which means with a weapon. Well he just ended up back in prison not even 30 days after talking to me again, so stupid of me. He was shooting up drugs in my bathroom, I felt like my safe space was violated. And Glen's institutionalized, and with his record it's nearly impossible to find a job or an apartment so he just continues robbing people.
Then after awhile in AZ I decided to move back in with my parents which meant I had to get my license reinstated. I also needed a car, my parents were amazing enough to ship on of theirs to me. I stupidly started talking to Isaac again, I even stopped to see him on my drive home from AZ to PA. We got along amazingly for those 48 hours. After 3 months of a long distance relationship,he quit his job with the post office and with his truck that was falling apart he moved out here. Into my parents home.
Now it's just like every relationship I've had before I feel so stuck. Him and I are always fighting it stresses my parents out, they're old. He also knows how desperately I want him to leave them alone, and my parents are lonely they'll talk and offer help to anyone.
I just wish and hope Isaac moves out soon, so I can continue with my life and doing things that make me happy. I also hope I've learned my lesson to stop going after the same type of guy, and make sure you're friends for awhile first.
So in the recent months I learned I'm addicted to being in a relationship, on top of the heroin addiction I went through.
Now things are slowly getting better, just celebrated 4 years relapse free back in October.
Now throughout the relationship with Ben my health started getting bad, quick. No doubt from all of the stress, I had an aneurysm in 2016. I also was Hepatitis C positive which wasn't a huge shocker, but my liver is already damaged from all of the chemicals I put in it. I ended up turning to medical marijuana.
Medical marijuana has easily saved my life, I even used it to help me get off the opiates. Cannabis has so many amazing uses.
Due to my criminal record, my health, and other circumstances I'm not able to work a normal job. So how does one become a productive member of society when they can't work? I began just being a cannabis activist and it feels like I'm right where I'm supposed to be.
I help the cannabis community by educating patients about all kinds of cannabis there is and the different products, I go to all of the meetings about cannabis law. Most recently a bill called HB50 that would allow for recreational cannabis. PA residents would be able to have six plants, three being in vegetative.
I'm also involved with a class action lawsuit for the opiate ordeal, against the pharmaceutical companies. So if anyone who had a legitimate prescription for any of the pain killers in the United States then became addicted afterwards with no signs of addiction prior to the prescription feel free to DM me and I'll help you.
Just remember, a very small percentage of heroin addicts recover. Something like 2%, but it is possible to quit! Especially with medication assisted treatment like Suboxone, Methadone, cannabis, halfway houses, and treatment centers.

2018.12.15 23:57 HardestPartOfTheRing How WWE Should Book TLC: Tables Ladders & Chairs 2018

Hey everyone! Ever since Night Of Champions 2015, through multiple accounts, every month before major WWE pay-per-views, I’ve come on here and booked the cards to make them as exciting, intriguing, and best possible scenarios for the future. I do both NXT and main-roster pay-per-views, as well as the occasional big RAW or Smackdown weekly show. Without further ado, here is how WWE Should Book TLC 2018!
KICKOFF-SHOW:
KICKOFF MATCH: uhhhhhh what do you mean there’s no kickoff match announced yet but if i had to move one from the main card it’d sadly have to be the surefire sixteen star classic in mahalicia vs. fabulous truth
WINNERS by SUBMISSION: truth and carmella if it gets moved okay they should really have a kickoff match announced by the time the go home smackdown goes off the air shouldn’t they
MAIN-SHOW:
1ST MATCH: The Bar (c) vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Big E) vs. The Usos (Triple Threat Tag Team match for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championships)
WINNERS by PINFALL and STILL WWE SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions: The Bar
2ND MATCH: Natalya vs. Ruby Riott (w/ Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan) (Tables match)
WINNER by ANVIL TABLE: Natalya
3RD MATCH: The Fabulous Truth (Carmella and R-Truth) vs. Team Mahalicia (Mixed Match Challenge Season 2 Finals match; Winners will receive an all-expenses paid vacation to anywhere in the world and the #30 spot in their respective Royal Rumble matches)
WINNERS by SUBMISSION: The Fabulous Truth
4TH MATCH: Bobby Lashley (w/ Lio Rush) vs. Elias (Ladder match; A guitar will be suspended above the ring and the first to retrieve it can use it as a weapon)
WINNER by PINFALL: Elias
5TH MATCH: Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio (Chairs match)
WINNER by PINFALL: Randy Orton
6TH MATCH: Drew McIntyre vs. Finn Balor (Singles match)
WINNER by PINFALL: Drew McIntyre
7TH MATCH: Buddy Murphy (c) vs. Cedric Alexander (Singles match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship)
WINNER by PINFALL and STILL WWE Cruiserweight Champion: Buddy Murphy
8TH MATCH: Lars Sullivan Debut Squash Match
WINNER by MURDER: Lars Sullivan
9TH MATCH: Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nia Jax (Singles match for the WWE RAW Women’s Championship)
WINNER by SUBMISSION and STILL WWE RAW Women’s Champion: Ronda Rousey
10TH MATCH: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. AJ Styles (Singles match for the WWE Championship)
WINNER by SUBMISSION and STILL WWE Champion: The NEW Daniel Bryan
11TH MATCH: Baron Corbin vs. Braun Strowman (???) (Tables, Ladders and Chairs match; if Strowman wins, he will receive a Universal Championship match at the Royal Rumble and Corbin will be stripped of all authoritative power. If Corbin wins, he will become the full-time general manager of RAW)
WINNER by PINFALL: Braun Strowman/Bray Wyatt
12TH MATCH: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose (Singles match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship)
WINNER by PINFALL and NEW WWE Intercontinental Champion: Dean Ambrose
13TH MATCH: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair (Tables, Ladders and Chairs match for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship)
The match ends when Becky and Charlotte are in the ring and Charlotte is climbing a ladder to retrieve the title. Becky manages to just get in the ring and pushes Charlotte off the ladder, but Charlotte lands on her feet. For the third time in one month, much like the fate of Ronda Rousey and Asuka just a week prior, Charlotte begins to realize that she can’t beat Becky Lynch. She picks up a chair and SNAPS. Both ladies brawl to the outside and Charlotte goes wild with chair shots on Becky Lynch near the timekeepers area on the outside. Charlotte and Becky engage in a tussle on the floor and with neither woman paying attention, ASUKA SETS BACK UP THE LADDER, CLIMBS TO THE TOP, AND UNHOOKS THE SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP.
It’s not over, ladies and gentlemen. Post-match, as Asuka celebrates atop the ladder, posing with the title, Charlotte on the outside, realizing that her anger and obsession with being the queen had just cost her one of the biggest matches of her career, PAIGE’S MUSIC HITS and she comes out to congratulate Asuka on her win, and more importantly, announces that because of the unbelievable performance of both Becky and Charlotte in the match, THEY’VE BOTH QUALIFIED FOR THE 2019 WOMEN’S ROYAL RUMBLE MATCH.
TLC goes off the air when Becky gets a mic and simply says: “I’ll see you at the Royal Rumble when I’m throwing you over the top rope and paving my road to Wrestlemania, BITCH. End.
WINNER and NEW WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion: Asuka

2018.02.18 09:11 2catsandacomputer A guide to writing profiles on Seeking Arrangements

A note from the author: if you find some spelling or grammar mistakes, please let me know so I can edit, for as much as I harp on grammar and spelling I am definitely not perfect. At the time of this post, the word count on this guide is around 40,000 characters. It took me about 30 minutes to read out loud to myself during editing. So if you intend on using this guide, set aside that amount of time to read it. Or read it in pieces, you do you boo.
Preface: When you submit a resume to a job, sometimes you have really high hopes for the prospective job. Sometimes you’re applying just because you need something to pay the bills and the dollar amount on the job listing was just high enough. Sometimes, it’s because a friend works there and they say that the benefits are awesome, the company mission is admirable, and the workload-to-bullshit ratio is good. Sometimes, you apply because while the job wasn’t at the top of your list, it looks interesting enough and you’d consider hearing more about the roles, responsibility, and company from a recruiter. And usually, when you’re job hunting, you submit more than one application a day. In this way, dating profiles (Vanilla or Sugar) are similar to job hunting. You must go through a lot of job postings (profiles) to see which ones pay you enough (allowance), which companies are good to work for (attraction), which might offer the best workload for your lifestyle (chemistry). A part of job hunting is also writing and tailoring your resume. Like resume writing, people generally suck at writing their own dating profiles. How do they know when they’ve included enough information? How do they know that they’re showcasing their personality? Are their interests relatable for future mates or are they too obscure? Does their profile display who they are as a person without giving up too much information to potential malicious on-lookers?
The purpose of this guide is to explore language, why language in your profile matters, and how to use it in your profile to effectively communicate your needs, expectations, and desires as you navigate the Sugar Bowl. This guide is my personal opinion on what strategies and tools you can use to make your profile the most effective to find a partner who wants what you want. It should not be treated as the only resource, and I encourage you to find other tips and techniques to find exactly what you are looking for. While this guide was written for the intent of being used on the website, SeekingArrangment.com, some of the general principals listed below can be used on vanilla sites such as PlentyOfFish or OkCupid. Good luck, and I hope this guide is of use to you.
Navigating this Guide
I know this is an extremely lengthy guide, but I would recommend reading all of the example sections even if you think they do not apply to you. Examples and advice build on each example profile presented. Later points might not make sense if you do not read through the material in its entirety. Because of this, even if you are only an SD or an SB, please read both sections for the best results. These profile examples were taken randomly, from 6 different cities in the U.S.; Atlanta (GA), San Franisco (CA), New York City (NY), Phoenix (AZ), Las Vegas (NV), Washington DC Area (VA/WV/DC). I have also included the profile text as a quote, in the even that you have not yet signed up on Seeking Arrangements or do not currently possess an account:
Questions to ask yourself as a reader: What do almost all of these profiles have in common? What questions do you have? How could it be better? What prevents you from NOT reaching out?
Sugar Baby Sample 1
About Me hello,,I like watching movies, skiing, swimming, yoga, walking, listening to music, reading;
What I'm Looking For (Tags: Emotional connection) hello,i looking for friend and love;I hope it's a serious relationship;
Yep, profiles like this exist. It’s entirely possible this particular Baby is ESL (English Second Language) but even if she isn’t, there’s some things to take away from this profile. Generally, grammar and spelling should be cleaned-up. Most prospects won’t assume you to be Pulitzer award winning writers, but simple things like capitalizing singular I’s, correct application of apostrophes, and correct spelling will net you more points than if you leave the profile with these errors. Some people do not care if you use “text speak.” Others will judge the profile based only upon your choice to not apply correct grammar and spelling rules, and will bow-out of reading your profile based only on the fact that you did not capitalize the first letter of your sentences, did not capitalize nouns, etc. Your profile is your introduction. It should be polished and pristine, and a reflection of your best self. Do not be lazy, be exact. While monotonous, it will pay off to be strict on yourself in this first message. For those who do not care if you use text speak? You obviously won’t be losing points. For someone you might have in-person chemistry with? They will automatically close your profile.
There’s also such a thing as, “too little information”. While short and sweet is nice for busy professionals, nothing stands out about this profile. You could copy and paste it onto any Baby’s profile on SA and it would look the same. There is no defining characteristic, and nothing that really set her apart. Outside of grammar and spelling issues, without a picture SDs would be more inclined to pass due to how boring and low-effort this profile is.
Sugar Baby Sample 2
About Me I am [REDACTED], a citizen of the United States of America. I like table tennis, horse riding, going to cinema, jogging and golf as favorite sport, listen to jazz and rock music, very romantic and honest, hates lies, I think i am sensitive and kind to people,I live to be spontaneous and i am usually good in trying my best in any position i found myself, I am hard working to my job and always enjoy it, no matter it doesn't give me so much time, I have peace in my heart and always dream for God to give me the sweetest person in the whole universe, fun to be with, meaning, I am single but intend to get one by my side to settle down with, you can reach me on hangout or message me your phone number so i can text you out of here
What I'm Looking For (Tags: Luxury lifestyle, Friends with benefits) I am looking for someone to keep me on my toes and to snuggle up to when the nights turn cold and dark but i'm sure we could keep warm in other ways hehe.. NOTE: no cyber, time wasters , if you are not ready to meet now, please don't contact me. please contact me immediately, with your name and cell number so i can text you out of here..
Here’s a profile with a little more meat to it. The Baby begins by giving a name, which could or could not be fake. She begins by stating she is a U.S. Citizen. While dating can be sort of like job hunting, citizenship isn’t a concern for most people. If and SD wants you to travel, the “passport ready” tag should suffice. It’s sort of an odd thing to state, and then have nothing to follow up on why she included it. This could be a tactic for having men reach out and ask why she included it, but it’s not so far out there that it’s obvious that’s what she’s trying to accomplish. As it stands, it doesn’t accomplish anything to a potential partner about what kind of person she is, only a general idea of where she was born. For these reasons, it should not be included. The first “paragraph” can be split off into 2 ideas; “What I Like” and “Who I am”. Cramming the sentences together reads as a very jumbled sort of mess. It makes her inadvertently sound excited. She’s going over a lot of ideas in a short amount of time. This kind of tone can be read 1 of 2 ways; eager, or impatient. She ends the paragraph with, “please contact me immediately with your name and cellphone number so that I can text you out of here.” She states this again as her closing message under What I’m Looking For. Combined with the inability to actually make the first paragraph a sentence, she reads as very desperate. While it might sound like it makes sense to weed out toe-dippers, rinsers, and scammers by including “ NOTE: no cyber….etc” it typically has the opposite effect. Some readers will read this as a jaded and/or bitter sounding end note. If a new SD sees this in your profile, and you’re the kind of girl he’d spend money on, he might not message you because he’s new to the Bowl and he’s afraid of wasting your time, not yet understanding how this dynamic works. This language does not benefit you to add in your profile, regardless of if you are a Sugar Daddy, Sugar Baby, or vanilla.
Sugar Baby Sample 3
About Me The Basics:
What I'm Looking For (Tags: Emotional connection, Flexible Schedule, Discretion, Mentorship, Attentive, Friends with benefits) I am looking for a gentleman who has a great attitude, a sense of humor, and is intelligent. If you can stimulate my mind with good conversation, you have my full attention! With that said, if you like what you've read so far, feel free to message me :) Just a few ground rules to consider before messaging me: - I identify as a submissive; however, it is earned. I verified my background so you know you're getting the real deal. While I understand privacy is important, I will ask you to verify your background, whether through here or other measures. I do not participate in any illegal activity. If we decide to meet, it will be in a PUBLIC place. I refuse to meet someone for the first time in their home or office. That's how you end up in an episode of Dateline. I have a built-in BS detector: therefore, if you attempt to scam me, you will be reported.
This is a really good profile that only needs minor tweaking. In her About Me, she lists out some basics of who she is first, and then expands on who she is if the first part was enticing enough for the reader. This is a happy medium between too short and too long profiles. The spelling and grammar are better than the other 2 examples we’ve seen, so this would be an improvement for anyone looking. She lists some things that are specific to her (Italian Cooking, the beach) and leaves things generic enough for interpretation. She says, “once you get to know me” after her list end. This is open to potentially negative interpretation. How long will it take you to get to know her? What is her personality like until you get to know her? Is she bitchy? Introverted? Who is she if you don’t know her? In her What I’m Looking For, half of it is negative to negative neutral. She gives off a check list of what is necessary to meet her. While these are solid things to know (submissive, will not meet in private for a M&G, etc) dating isn’t a grocery or chore list. A better approach would be to modify her text to not have any negative connotation. Something like: I am looking for a gentleman who has a great attitude, a sense of humor, and is intelligent. If you can stimulate my mind with good conversation, you have my full attention! I identify as submissive, so I’m afraid that if you are also a submissive, things might not work out between us. I find I have better connections with people when we both meet in public and we can relax without fear of being scammed or harmed. I’ve been wanting to try wine tasting at _______ in ________ so if you’re interested, we should connect.
Everyone who uses any dating site knows that Phishers and Scammers are abundant. Asking them not to message you won’t stop them from messaging you, it just makes you come across as impatient in your profile. If you’re asking for a guy with a good attitude, you should first display a good attitude.

I love dressing up to impress and express :) I travel frequently and work in travel/tourism. 25 cities in the past 1.5 yrs. for fun i like to take photos, paint, sketch, dance, cook, learn spanish, go out partying and celebrate being alive. I pride myself on my intellect and social prowess, which helps me converse meaningfully w anyone on any topic from physics and philosophy to music and design. Being a full time student and working can be stressful financially and isolating. I desire a symbiotic relationship that can remedy those feelings. All about fun, sweetness, and mutual respect. I want to have a taste of your success, so I know what to aim for my own future and accomplish my goals. In turn, I will captivate you with my vitality & electrifying presence. Happiness stems from sharing; I want to help and be helped. Ive graduated from top universities and i so welcome mentorship. I have goals i want to achieve. Let's see if our interests and logistical expectations match. Then we may meet and find out if we are attracted to each other? Does that sound like an appropriate method? :) Feel free to describe to me what youre like and what your experience has been like. I greatly appreciate honesty and clear communication. I receive a lot of messages and I cant reply right away even if i wished. I’ll be online 4-5pm and 10-11pm.
What I'm Looking For (Tags: Mentorship, Investor, Trips/vacations, Travel to You, Travel With You, Flexible Schedule, Passport ready, Sugar Veteran) *I respectfully would like to meet a man with the actual means and the integrity of Intentions to provide for my lifestyle. *I favor a discrete arrangement. Open to travel.
Are you turned on by reading this profile? What is happening?! Yeah, there’s grammar issues abound but this profile has a certain something to it, doesn’t it? This is another profile that starts with a short list, and expands into more if that short list didn’t disqualify her immediately by the reader. She talks about what she does, and almost immediately in her About Me, she starts hinting that she’s already thinking of the reader. She uses the term “impress and express”. If you’re an SD and she’s meeting you and she’s all dolled up, she’s trying to impress you. She wants your attention. She wants eyes on her, and then on you, with jealous bystanders asking themselves, “how does someone like her end up with someone like him?” She wants to look good for you. But she’s not a push over. She does it for self expression as well. She has her own tastes. She’s her own person. She doesn’t sound like work. Something else she does is relate to her reader: “working can be stressful….and isolating.” Some SDs are on this site because they work and don’t have time for a real relationship, and this statement and other supporting statements say, “Hey, I know how you feel. We can commiserate together…and make each other feel better 😉 ”
The last thing she does is ask for an open dialogue. She says, “tell me about your experiences.” She has simultaneously talked about herself while also presenting that she is here for you. She has made it clear she has her own hopes and dreams, desires and goals that are obtainable and not likely to get in the way of a successful SR. She has mastered the fine art of, “darling, let’s make this about you” without forgetting herself. The thing she does best that the last 2 profiles have not done? She doesn’t have anything negative. She states she’s looking for the real deal very carefully, injecting the word “respectfully” to state her desires. She’ll come to you. And she’ll be quiet about your relations with her as well. Short, simple, too the point, and with all of the buttering-up she did in her first few paragraphs, the closer is perfect. The only potential red flags is that she calls herself intelligent, only referencing that she was supposedly a scientist and went to prestigious Universities. This is followed up by comments like, “intellectual prowess”, yet the inability to capitalize the first word of each sentence, some I’s, etc. This can read sort of bullshit-y if her “what about you” didn’t cover for her. Again, these sorts of grammatical nuances may not matter to some readers, but for the ones it does matter for, she loses points.
Sugar Baby Sample 5
About Me I am currently in school to finish my AS in Accounting & then I will to continue to get my bachelors in Marketing. I recently just finished my AA in Business Admin (whoop whoop lol). I am a huge foodie! We can go out and try every new restaurant or stay home and make a new meal, either way I will be completely happy. I love spa days and shopping, nothing is more satisfying when your skin is glowing and you have a brand new pair of heels. I do have very high standards for my body and I strive for it to look like what I consider perfect so I do work out frequently. With that being said, my respect for myself is EXTREMELY high, do not expect to get in my pants, if there is no connection then this will not work. I am looking for the ideal sugar relationship. Check out my gift wish list if you’re serious about spoiling ;)
What I'm Looking For (Tags: Luxury lifestyle, Mentorship, Long Term, Passport ready, Discretion, Financial Domination, Flexible Schedule, Monthly Allowance, Travel to You, Trips/vacations, Investor I am very classy and hold myself to a high standard so please leave any disrespect you may have at the door. I enjoy the finer things in life along side a man who can treat me right. I want to be spoiled because you WANT to and you can afford to. Waiting for the right man to come along. Xo
This starts off so good and then like the 2016 Presidential election just crashes and buns to an unrecognizable pile of flaming shit. (Side note: Rest in Peace, Bernie4Prez 2016) She begins with some boring generalities to open the door. She’s getting her AA in business admin (whoop whoop ya’ll). She says, “I’m a huge foodie, WE can go out and eat together!” And the dream dies there, folks. The rest of her profile is all about how she would like to be treated, and nothing about what she’s going to give to her relationship. While the “about you” section is technically supposed to be about, well, you, like Sugar Baby profile #4 there is an artful way to discuss how she can be a benefit to Daddy while also expressing who she is as an individual. She doesn’t do this, and it can make her tone sound entitled, bratty, or bitchy as a result. “I am very classy” If you have to state you are an adjective, you are likely not the adjective you are stating. Especially when you add modifiers like, “very”. See /Iamverysmart or /niceguys for examples. This makes you come off as pretentious, snobbish, and makes most people scrolling through your profile give up (if they haven’t already). “Waiting for the right man to come along.” Sugar is about work on the Baby’s end. There is no prince charming. There are many Sugar Daddies who will respect you, treat you like a queen, and even love you; but they don’t do it without reciprocation. Waiting implies you’re some fragile maiden deserving of a noble hero to come sweep her off her feet. Slap on those heels and go hunting, girl. How would we fix this? How would we make her smart, classy, and mutually beneficial?
I am a huge foodie! We can go out and try a new restaurant or stay home and make a new meal, either way I will be completely happy. I do have to balance my time with you while I work on my Bachelors in Marketing, but if you don’t mind me studying or working on my homework on your couch, we could definitely talk. I have a lot of fun trying on clothes for you when I go shopping, and an ideal date would be at a Barney’s followed by a day at the spa; nothing is more satisfying when your skin is glowing and some brand new toys. I consider myself to have high standards for my body; I strive for it to look like what I consider perfect for you, so I do work out frequently. I currently run and do yoga a few times a week, but I am open to any other exercises or regiments you might be experienced in (crossfit is a plus!) What I'm Looking For Chemistry is the most important factor for me, and I think the best physical relationships start in a person’s head. Send me a message if you’d like to get inside of mine and we’ll see where we line up.
Section 2: Sugar Daddy Profiles and What They're Doing Wrong
Sugar Daddy Sample 1
About Me: I’m a frog originally. I moved to SF from Paris at 19yo for a US girl I had a one night stand with in Paris, just before she flew back to SF the morning after. Three months later, I finished high school and bought a plane ticket to come see her in SF…. Yes, I have a small accent but don’t worry, you’ll understand me just fine. I worked as a janitor, a cashier, an-escort, messenger, etc. Now, I’m a landlord on Airbnb. I have tons of free time if I want, and I can build/fix anything as I learned to fix/build my own properties. Need a handyman? 😊
What I’m Looking For (Tags: Active lifestyle, Flexible Schedule, Friends with benefits, Long Term, Passport ready, Romance, Short Term, Travel With You, Trips/Vacations) I have time and money to use, best to use it with a great partner in crime. I’ve done it before as you can see in my private pictures. I can provide everything we need 😊 I have had quite a few wild adventures along the years. I’ll tell you if you want to know. Romance, excitement, affection, and passion is best in the end. Of course, we could have fun locally too. I have a great house in SF with panoramic views of the city. When do you want to move in? 😊
Red Flag 1: Talking about relationships in the body of your profile generally means you aren’t over them. Or that you talk about your exs a lot. This can come off as clingy or obsessive to women. It raises a red flag.
Red Flag 2: Talking about your sexual escapades on a profile usually means that’s the only thing you’re looking for, or you’re insecure about them.
Red Flag 3: The tags are confusing and contradictive to his profile. You want both short and long term or you prefer one over the other? What is going on here?
Red Flag 4: Don’t joke about girls moving into your house in your profile. Please. Just don’t.
Red Flag 5: If your tone is so dry you need to use the “😊” emoji every other line, please rethink what you are trying to convey and why you are failing at conveying it. Your tone should not be determined by characters outside of the English alphabet. One or 2 is fine. Anything more than that for a word count that small comes across as serial-killer. Especially with the move-in joke.
Outside of the multiple red flags, let’s look at some of the language. The frog comment was a bit weird (means he’s French I guess?) and then lists some blue collar occupations. Talking about what you have done for work is actually a benefit; it shows more down-to-earth, non-gold digger types that you come from a humble background and know how “the grind” is. The unfortunate part is that being an AirBnB manager isn’t really something indicative of having a high, or stable income for sugar. While everyone’s allowance expectations are different, this language comes off as sort of braggy. If you replaced the blue collar jobs with white collar jobs, it would come off as pretentious. Since this is a guide about language,
Sugar Daddy Sample 2
About Me: I'm a business executive here in San Francisco. I'm very fit, work out several times a week, stable, sincere, respectful, passionate, open minded, and love to travel. I make a great mentor due to my diverse business background. I love fine dining, especially with the great selections here in SF and I love even finer wines. I'm 100% real, sincere and genuine. Please be the same. I'm not here to waste your time or mine.
What I'm Looking For: Looking to find a genuine woman on here who is looking for assistance (whether tuition, rent, bills, or investments) and wants to have a relationship where we truly enjoy spending time together and taking short trips together. I'm completely drama free and am looking for the same in you. I'd really enjoy helping to provide for a more comfortable and stable future for the right woman, both through guidance and financial assistance.
This is an okay profile. Nothing in his “About Me” section is really about him…it’s pretty generic. And the last 2 lines can be read as sort of a turn off. Again, this really depends on how bittejaded you are by the time you get to his profile but it can read as a turn off. We can alleviate that potential negative by just not including it or rephrasing it to be more positive. His What I’m Looking for is good, though. He’s no-nonsense about what SRs are for (“whether tuition, rent, bills, or investments.”) He doesn’t state anything about what he’s looking for. We’re all adults, and we know what men come here for. He’s a gentleman in that he doesn’t use his profile to talk about which Marriot he will take you to, or how long you’ll be expected to be there. He sounds experienced, like he knows exactly what he’s going to provide and he’s happy to do so for the right lady. This Stability Factor is something that Sugar Babies seek out. They don’t want to have to guess if a man is a provider. When he comes out and throws it all out in the open, rather than trying to be polite about what an arrangement is (or should I say, can be), he’s saying, “Look, if one of those things is something you want, let’s respectfully go out for a glass of wine and talk about how we can get you there.” This is a good tactic for showing women you are serious, not a toe-dipper, and not a timer waster.
Sugar Daddy Sample 3
About Me Laid back gentleman in to working out and stay abreast of world events
What I'm Looking For Active lifestyle Sexy flat stomach curvy women, i.e. lady who takes care of herself. Fitness is a plus
Same problem as SB profile 1. Reads as very low-effort. What he’s looking for is a check list. These things can be important without being the only thing you are looking for as a Sugar Daddy. Veteran SBs and girls worth their salt would ignore this profile, it sounds more like a need of an escort than the need of a sugar relationship. While there is nothing wrong with Behind Close Doors types of relationships, this guide was written for learning self expression for chemistry, not for convenient hookups. If you’re having issues finding a connection with a beautiful woman, and your profile looks like this, this might be the issue.
Sugar Daddy Sample 4
About Me Semi-retired. I have lots of free time to enjoy life. I frequently travel around the US. Also have a second home in the Seattle area. Enjoy talking about a wide variety of subjects. I find intelligence and the ability to carry on a conversation very appealing. I feel conversation and humor are two of the most important parts of an arrangement.
What I'm Looking For Do not request my private pictures without opening up a dialog first. As many of you do, I, as a "Diamond Daddy" receive 20 to 30 messages a day and I delete any conversation that is just a private picture request. So what am I looking for? I'm looking for someone who is interested in what works for both of us. I'm not looking for constant communication by text or phone. Each of us has our own lives, and I want to keep it that way. I don't need to be involved in someone's day to day life, but I like to see others happy and know that I can assist in helping them enjoy their lives.
This profile reads and stern and no-nonsense without being entirely dickish. The only thing that can be read as negative is his first sentence in the What I’m Looking For Section, which lists a requirement. A frequent poster here at SLF usually makes a joke like, “Not even a hello first?” when people request his photos. By making a joke about this common issue, we can make it a positive topic and express our personality simultaneously. Again, there’s nothing specific to him in the profile (a lot of SD’s travel or have second homes, for example) so revisiting this might make his profile stronger. For now it’s just “okay”. Sugar Daddy Sample 5 About Me I am an easy on the eyes gentleman who enjoys opening doors and treating people with respect. I know how to cook, exercise regularly, and run several businesses. I have a lot to offer, but right now the priorities which afford me a comfortable lifestyle are more important to me than a traditional relationship. If it makes my heart beat faster, I'm probably interested in it but I appreciate the simple things in addition to the nicer things. A home cooked meal can be just as special as fine dining, but some days pizza may be the only thing that sounds good. I love movies at home, although some are meant to be seen at the best theater in town while others are better at the drive-in. I'm up for adventures from the ocean to the mountains and would love to have someone to travel with. People can be heroes and I believe that the real power of a man is measured by the smile of the woman sitting next to him. Money makes many things easier, but a positive attitude and great company can create the right ambiance in any situation. As long as you're honest, easy going and open minded, we'll have a great time together. What I'm Looking For (Tags: Friends with benefits, Long Term, Active lifestyle, Romance, Trips/vacations) I want to enrich someone's life who adds value to mine by waking up next to me, reminding me to stay focused on goals, and having fun as time permits. I strongly prefer consistency over variety, but we both should have our own lives and the freedom to see other people without having to end our arrangement. Please message me what you like to eat for breakfast so I know you are comfortable with sleepover dates. If you request to see my private pictures without writing me a message I will assume you haven't read my profile. Our time is valuable and can't be replaced so let's not waste it. You can ask me anything but sharing a bite to eat without a lot of back and forth on this site would be the best way to start. P.S. The woman I would have created in Weird Science would: * Kiss so passionately it weakens the knees * Appreciate hand holding and cuddling * Be described by neighbors as slender or fit * Enjoy eating steak, ice cream, and chocolate * Have an above average sex drive * Understand this all applies to me as well. Another solid profile. Some comments to add, is that for the website it’s sort of odd to see a guy so into stressing that he likes providing. He isn’t a pushover, but he’s playing Prince Charming card. He’ll cook for you, isn’t so posh as to not order-in pizza, and likes to snuggle. Reaalllyyy likes to snuggle. He’s attentive, hasn’t said anything to prove he’s not intelligent, and so far seems like a stable, well managed guy. The only negatives here is that his profile could be a bit shorter. He says the same things in different ways, and while that might tell you more about him it’s not completely necessary. He’s mostly positive with only one negative line about time wasting.
Section 3: Safety:
In July of 2015, a popular spousal cheating website by the name of Ashley Madison was hacked. The hackers threatened to release the identities of users, backed up by months of credit card subscriptions. The painful truth about these websites is that hacks can happen and not be made public. Only share what you feel comfortable with sharing. My personal opinion is that the following information should always be omitted until you have thoroughly vetted the person you are speaking with:
Obvious reason is that someone could try to blackmail you for “outing”. Outing is the act of taking someone’s information, screenshotting their activity on SA, and then sending it to people the target might know. If a blackmailer has your first and last name, they might be able to find and access friendslists your facebook, twitter, or LinkedIn. They can threaten to hold this information over you head or send it to your friendslists, which might include work colleagues, family members, or friends who would think poorly of your decision to enter the Sugar Bowl. You never know who might look at your profile on a whim, and it might even be someone you know. For this reason, please do not post full face pictures as something anyone can see. Mark them private or only exchange with someone via text/kik/snap, etc after you’ve verified they are who they say they are.
Section 4: How to write about yourself:
If you’ve been sugaring for a while and haven’t read Ho Tactics, I strongly recommend it. Doesn’t matter if you are a Baby or a Daddy, the first half of the book is a must read. For women, it will teach you how to give the attention men want. For men, it will show you the tricks and language that rinsers use. The first half of the book is intended for strictly platonic meetings, but a lot of the principals taught in keeping a man interested and not being too much of a chore apply to Sugar Relationships. I might be a bit hypocritical in saying this, but the author comes across as very “know it all” and perceives the world as very 2 dimensional. It can be a chore to get through his style of writing, but the general knowledge is extremely useful.
Anyway, if you’re an experience SB or SD, you probably know exactly what you want. You can skip to the last section of this guide.
How to determine what you want:
Okay, so you’re new to the bowl…you might want some finanicial assistance, or a lady who is sexually explorative. But what else do you want. What stops you from being an escort or just being a John? Make a list of the things you want in a Sugar Relationship. Some key questions might look like:
This is sort of brain storming for writing your profile, so there’s no wrong way to answer this information. Be honest with yourself while asking and answering these questions. You can answer in list form, paragraph form, etc. As long as it’s something that’s getting your ideas out of your head and onto the paper (or word processor….or vim or emacs if you’re a tryhard ultra nerd) you’re golden.
How to express what you want:
Regardless of whether you are an SD or an SB, what you want matters to your partner. It determines chemistry and will also attribute to your success in the bowl. Whether or not we like it, SA is currently the main platform for starting sugar relationships. So, we make a profile, like a vanilla dating website, and hope for the best, right? But this isn’t even the same playing field because it’s an entirely different game. This is like comparing tennis to atom smashing. They’re so different we cannot play by the same rules. So the following section breaks down how to write common roadblocks people can have in their profiles. This will be summarized in the last section of this guide, so if you want to skip this section and come back for clarification for sections you don’t understand, feel free.
Don't be a Negative Nancy
There was a phrase I heard a lot as a kid: "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Same thing applies here. Does including "please don't message if you're a scammer" deter scammers? Probably not. Does saying, "please no time wasters" prevent time wasters? Probably not. These messages are filler and only contribute to a negative attitude as a result. If you're a woman, try not to put negative things like a height or allowance requirement (SA has the allowance expectation section for a reason.) If you're a guy, try not to list requirements like a D cup, 26 inch waist, etc. Relationships are not a check list, don't be that guy/gal. If you're struggling with making something sound positive, you can try "we might not work if [requirement] isn't in the cards", or, "I work best with people who are [requirement]". You can say your thing nicely, but listing off a checklist is a turn off to most stable people.
You're unique, so make it about you:
You like to cook for your partner? What do you like to cook? Why do you like to cook it? Do you sing while you cook? Dance to The Goo Goo Dolls? What makes you, you? Include this. If you're married there are ways to get around this other than listing exact specifics, but this lets the reader know you're a real person and not an infamous SA bot.
But also, don't forget your partner:
At the end of the day, SA is for putting women together with men in some sort of arrangement. Market what you want and how that benefits your partner. For women, being pretty and charming isn't enough. Ask yourself what you want, and how can you make that about Daddy? How can him spending money on you at the spa benefit him? How will you show him you really appreciate that sort of gesture? For men, some women will only want a cash allowance or nice gifts, and some will want a full spectrum relationship. What do you want your money to give you? How can you attract the type of woman who can give you what you want and keep her around?

2017.11.17 00:52 behindblueyes97 What cities in BC fit my criteria? Looking to relocate.

Hey!
I am a lady software developer in my twenties immigrating to Canada from the US in early 2018 (I have my PR already). I know that I want to live in BC, and I have visited Victoria, Nanaimo, and Vancouver. I work remotely in technology and plan to keep my job. My favorite pastime is hiking, and I would like to buy a detached single family home in the next 5 years (I know the BC housing market is bonkers right now; I am hoping it will improve). I also want to be able to easily build a friend group based on common interests.
I am looking for somewhere temperate with lush and accessible forests, at least 200k metro population, walkable/bikeable, a reasonable population of liberal well-educated millennials, thriving arts and cultural scene, and detached SFHs in tree-lined residential neighborhoods.
EDIT: Population limit because I am concerned about being able to make friends & date in a smaller population. Is this a valid concern? I have never lived anywhere smaller.
Similar to Strasbourg, France; Eugene, OR; Phoenix, AZ; or Madison, WI.

2016.12.06 07:40 LunaFalls Pipe burst in rental, landlord let it flood. Repairs are extensive, place unusable, unsafe for me and toddler, and they won't move us..

This is long, I'm sorry. I included a TL;DR and linked the album of the current state of my apartment. Work is expected to last over a week, landlords won't move us to habitable place. Please help!
I live in a 2br 2b apartment in Phoenix, AZ with my fiance and our one and a half year old son. On Thursday when my son and I came home after class (at almost 9pm...) the apartment smelled awful. My room was super hot and I soon realized the bathrooms were flooding. My fiance came home an hour later and finished drying my bathroom and we found the wall, right where wall and floor meet, was gushing water. Great. The rest of the apartment is carpet. Emergency maintenance came and said there was nothing they could do at the time, so the water just ran over night and our bedroom, walk in closet (only storage space here) and hallway flooded.It was nearly in my son's room and living room. So yesterday we had to move everything we had stored in the closet to the far side of the bedroom and onto the bed because there's no other space anywhere for it. I called the office manager Friday morning and she made it sound like it was the water to the whole building that would be shut off to stop my place from flooding, and that to locate the leak the water had to be running anyways. Then she said the locator was booked and wouldn't be here until Saturday, the next day. I was like, okay then the living room and toddler's room will flood too, all of our furniture will be ruined, and my son sleeps on a mattress so that's going to need replacing also...after that she sent someone to extract water and remove the carpet pads and that's when she called to say they turned the water off. Again, no one had come to locate the leak or anything, just the carpet guy had been there. Shockingly, she was able to shut the water off just to the affected area and everywhere else still has water. So it all could have been avoided by turning it off Thursday night when it started....
Friday this is all that was done:
http://imgur.com/2gvGXl3
Then they laid the carpet back down to dry with big fans. Remember, fiance and I can't use our room or bed anymore so we are sleeping on the couch or floor.
Today they came by in the morning to start working with the jackhammer. No other accommodations were offered. At one point they thought they would need to remove both toilets and I asked the office manager again if she would move us. First she said they only had a one bedroom available (I don't care if it is smaller, jeeze lady), then backtracked and said they had nowhere to place us but "accommodations will be made if both toilets have to go". They took out pieces of wall in the dining area and both bathrooms, leaving exposed rotting pipes. My bathroom is currently just a hole into the dirt, floor and cement removed. They left their wheelbarrow full of dirt and other supplies in there. Oh, and they took the door off of the bedroom and told me to just put up a gate so my son won't go in there. I had to borrow one from the neighbor so my son won't run in there and kill himself.
They also manged to splatter mud or plaster or God knows what on every single wall and surface in the apartment, even in areas they weren't working in. My son's train table and toys are covered in the stuff, as well as: my TV, pictures, a painting I made with my son's feet when he was younger, my son's books and sippy cup, son's highchair, the kitchen counters, stove, fridge, dining table and chairs, any coats we had in the living room, my son's door, the entire hallway, not to mention everything that we have piled up on the other side of my room (books, clothes, dressers, etc.)
Below is the album with pictures from the apartment. In first picture, or "before" pic of the bathroom, water had already been extracted from carpet and it had a day to dry with industrial fans. The rest are from tonight after maintenance left.

The clutter is obviously from not having a usable room or bathroom since Thursday night.
Now, I'm in the middle of finals. This is causing monumental stress and drastically decreasing the time I have to study and finish my final projects and essays. We are also poor as fuck and I have a few hours to get stuff done on Mondays while my son is at a sitters. We can't afford more. Today I had to leave him there all day, until 7pm, because there's no way this was a safe environment for him. I can't stay at my dad's an hour away tonight because I have an early final and it would take 3 hours to get my son to the sitter and then get to school.
But also, I shouldn't have to be making my own arrangements to stay somewhere else!!!! Don't landlords have to provide a habitable living space? It's certainly not my fault the pipes are so old and shitty. Legally, is there anything I can do?
TL;DR: Look at the album http://imgur.com/a/brar8 and let me know if landlords are required to move tenants to a habitable space during extensive repairs. What steps should I take? Leak and flood began Thursday, repairs began today (Monday). The first picture is after water was extracted from carpet and it had a day to dry with industrial fans, it's the before pic of bathroom. The rest are from tonight after maintenance left. This is not expected to be completed for at least the whole week. Fiance and I have no access to our bed or room, but the door was removed and we have a toddler. We had to pay for babysitting for entire day as toddler could not be here while jackhammers were in use and shit was flying.
